It feels like he should have made Robin Hood and maybe Ridley Scott should have made King Arthur... seems like a better marriage of talent to the material.

I had really zero interest in seeing this flick as it stands, and it's not that I'm not in the mood for a good King Arthur movie, it's just... whatever this was, didn't look interesting.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017)

Trailer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SX9y5JPuRHY


When I first saw the trailer for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, I was intrigued by what I saw, especially when I knew that this was going to be a Guy Ritchie film. This was not going to be the typical Sword and Fantasy flick. This was going to be good and breath new life into the genre. Well, having just watched it....er, struggling to get through it, I was very disappointed in what the final product turned out to be. Maybe there is a reason why traditional is what it is for a reason. Guy is a solid film maker with his unique style and flair. But it doesn't work in this genre. If you've seen any of his previous films, then you're going to recognize his ticks as a film maker, which then in turns just takes you out of the moving going thread you have with what's happening on screen. It's not only his ticks that were too much of a distraction, the story itself was a complete mess with horrible editing choices where you lose huge chunks of plot just to "move things along". Definitely a Skip. 2 Stars out of 5.

"Ground Control to Major Tom."


I love this, feels very Star Trek (in fact, it reminds me of the opening theme from Enterprise, though I love the inclusion of Bowie).

Been playing Forza 5, which is good. I prefer the arcade style racing games in GTA instead. Also playing Oxenfree which is f*cking awesome. I'll post my gameplay for that one soon.

Best of Gorilla Monsoon & Bobby The Brain Heenan Prime Time April 25th, 1988

Man, this sucks. It's not unexpected as he has been sick for a long time. But it still sucks that he is gone. He was, is and will always be the GREATEST wrestling manager of all time. Period. He has no equal. He was the consummate showman and knew exactly how to work a crowd into a frenzy. I've been a fan of his for so long, starting from my first foray into wrestling back during the 80's in the WWF/WWE and all the way through his stint in the WCW. This guy was talented in so many ways. Best Manager and one of the greatest Color Commentator's of all time. But more than anything else, Bobby was damn funny. If you want to see someone with comedic timing....just watch any of his skits to see how a master does it. RIP Mr. Heenan. There will be a lot of tributes coming out this week and rightly so. WWE will definitely have a Tribute tomorrow night at the start of RAW. So, I will be looking forward to the video package they put together. I know they will have a great one for the man.

Saw the fight when it happened, but I've never seen the overhead shot zeroing in on Ronda as shown in the clip before.

I heard a disco song from the Chili Peppers on the radio a few weeks back...this might have been it.

it was really good.

I was telling my wife about 10 months back...I HATED the chili peppers for the last 12 or so years (was a big fan a long time ago) but at some point I just hit the
complete over saturation point with the band...and especially on the radio...I honestly couldn't turn it off fast enough

Now I dig them again which is nice!
