4:59pm: More Capsule movie reviews
Blood Brothers - D: Alexi Tan S: Daniel Wu : In my opinion, John Woo's best movie is Bullet in the Head.  It's an epic movie about three friends who leave their small village for life in Vietnam during the Vietnam War.  I heard about the proposed "remake" of the film and it was even produced by John Woo and his partner Terrence Chang.  The most striking difference is that Bullet in the Head is 136 mins while Blood Brothers was only 93 minutes.  So what you end up having is a cliff notes version of Bullet in the Head.  Due to this, all the character development is way to quick.  I like the Shanghai setting and there are some really beutiful shots in the film.  Over all, though, it was a major disappointment.

Maximum Overdrive - D: Steven King S: Emelio Estevez : For the longest time, this film was always considered one of the worst films ever made.  I remember having fun with it as a kid and I wondered if this film would have a different effect on me.  Turns out, it's a lot more fun than I remember.  The dialogue is over the top southern cheese but the multiple scenes of machine on man violence is a good time.  I'm also a fan of AC/DC so it's always hilarious when their songs are playing, for some reason.  I will say this, the ending still sucks.  Completely anti-climatic.

Wanted - D: Temur Bekmambetov S: James McAvoy, Angelina Jolie :  I'm an unapologtic fan of action movies, especially those featuring gun play.  I remember getting really pumped up for "Shoot 'Em Up" and being very disappointed with the lame gun fights in that movie.  Well Wanted turned out to be exactly what I was hoping I would get.  There are awesomely absurd action sequences in this film that I was giddy.  You've probably heard a lot about Temur (of Night Watch and Day Watch fame) as a visionary and I wouldn't go that far.  There is a lot of Matrix and Fight Club to the film.  But sometimes you just want to see some wacky and well made and this is what it was.  A fun ride that I enjoyed greatly.

2:29pm: I just saw a couple of movies
I thought I'd feel you in with some movies that I've seen lately. 

1. Come Drink With Me - This is an early Shaw Brothers effort from legendary Chinese director, King Hu.  The lead in the film is Cheng Pei-Pei. You might know her as the Jade Fox in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.  I don't think it's one of the better Shaw Brothers from the time, it still is an important movie in that he changed the way filmmakers shot the actual kung fu.  This was one of the first films to use a more style similar to Chinese Opera.  I'm glad I saw it though because I'm always interested in the history of different genre films.

2 North by Northwest - I so dearly loved this movie.  It might be a little on the long side but you can tell Cary Grant is just have a wonderful time.  He got some great dialogue from Earnest (Sound of Music, Black Sunday) Lehman.  I think it's fun to know that the movie came about only because Hitchcock really wanted to make a film where the ending too place around Mt. Rushmore.  Unlike most high concept films of today, they took great care in making sure they made a great movie thoughtout.  One of the more fun Hitchcock films.

3. Reform School Girls - I remember seeing this when Gilbert Gotfried was hosting USA Up All Night.  Great trashy women's prison B movie.  Just a fun movie that would probably be worth seeing with a group of people and some drinks.

2:13pm: Who IS this man?
I love diet ginger ale.  I especially love the Canada Dry version.  I guess I'm not the only one.  However, I think there is somebody out there fucking with me.  The last two times I went to Dominicks by the Costco, they has barely been any Canada Dry.  For the longest time there was always a ton of it.  Last week they were running buy two, get two free.   Except all that was left was two.  That's right, I couldn't get my free ones.  So I was excited about this week because I assumed there would be more. NO! There was only ONE this time.  There wasn't even cans available.  I think somebody is fucking with me and it's driving me insane.

3:06pm: JTron
Sometimes I just casually glance at jtron live journal and I have no idea what the heck his talking about.  It's not so much that I don't understand his journals.  It's just I have no idea where he finds these things.

15th June 2007

9:00am: I actually have some thoughts today
Hey everybody.  I mostly use this live journal to keep up the haps with my peeps but there are stuff that has gone down since the last time I posted.  

1. Super hearty congratulations goes out to Deborah Hearst who kicks ass and is now an award winning address for her role in "Fat Pig."  I feel even more dumb for missing out on on the play.  She's talented enough where I believe we'll see her in other things.  Rock on, Deb.

2. One of my great friends, Fraser, is getting married on Saturday.  I've known him for a few years now and one of my best friend aquisitions.  I remember him telling me that he thought I didn't like him when I first met him.  I was surly back then.  I'm more...agreeable now.  I also learned that we're going to be in the "party loft" at the reception.  Everybody on the ground below is going to be jealous of the fun we're going to have. Mazel Tov, Fraser.

3. One of my best friends in the whole universe and the man that helped usher in the post-college era recently went down with surgery to remove colon cancer.  In typcial Rob fashion, he Kawada kicked the fuck out of the tumor and he's doing really well.  I don't know what I would do if the tumor would have kicked out at 2.99999 but it stayed down and that's the important thing.

4. However, my friend Jesse's dad cannot say the same for his cancer.  I've heard that Jesse's dad is a mench and an over all great guy.  Jesse took the train out there on Tuesday and I hope his time with his dad is rewarding.  I don't pray all that often because when I do I want it to mean something and I'm praying for Jesse's pop.

5. I've been with Andrea for a year and two months and it's been an amazing year and two months.  I'm not a mushy guy even though we might be the cutest couple ever but I can't describe how much I love this girl.  She's amazing.

6. Also, big ups to all my friends who have never let me down.  I love you all.

8:51pm: Grindhouse
It apears that I'll be seeing Grindhouse at the Davis Theatre Friday at 3 with Jesse, Mike and Emily.  Yay!!! I also can't think of a better theater for seeing it since it's one of those non multiplex type.

20th March 2007

10:28pm: Kung Fu Jew
I'm watching Forced Vengeance with Chuck Norris.  In it he plays an adopted Jewish man who knows Kung Fu.  I have my new role model.

29th January 2007

9:38am: I'm back from Florida.  It was awesome.  I also came back to a dead roach.  Hopefully that is the last roach I see, dead or alive.

I'll post more when I feel like it.

23rd January 2007

9:31pm: I saw it and I'm going to fucking kill it if only I can find it again.  How the fuck do these things disappear??!?!? Stupid roaches.

6:15pm: Coolest Guitar Hero thing ever
http://www.scorehero.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3592&sid=3cf8e0777f8f639f0f6ce38e96cfa03d

This site explains how you can take a real song and put it in guitar hero II and play.  So far I've seen videos of Don't Stop Beliving and Welcome to the Jungle.  As soon as I can figure this all out, I'm creating Back in Black.
12:53am: My First Cockroach
I see it out of the corner of my eye.  It's moving really fast.  I had no shoes on. I'm afraid of bugs.  I couldn't find anything.  I find a shoe.  I lose cockroach.  I can't find cockroach.  I'm so fucked.

6:34am: Drinko
http://www.freep.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070112/FEATURES01/701120344/1026

I played this game on New Year's Eve.  Andrea got it for the holiday.  The basic premise is instead of winning money at Plinko, the greatest Price is Right game ever, you win shots.  However, nobody can get drunk at this game because it takes too damn long in between shots.  Before you can even finish a beer you'll be bored out of your mind.  So it's really just a moot point and should have been pulled because it sucks.

10th January 2007

10:08am: Upcoming events

 - I'm going to write, I swear, an article for the AAW website today.  It's going to be about the break out wrestlers in AAW in 2007.  So far I'm predicting Zero (or Jay Ryan if they end up calling him that), Bryce Benjamin and Shane Hollister as the breakout stars of 2007.

- I'm taking a que from that guy on the DVDVR board and I'm going to do a Win/Loss record for every wrestler who wrestled on an AAW card.  I'm going to do the same for IWA.  That will be for the year 2006.  Then I'm going to track all that throughout the year of 2007.  It'll be a yearly thing.

- Also, I'm going to have finished the complete 1986 - 2006 Wrestling Observer "Matches of the last 20 years" list.  It'll be broken up by fed, PPV, TV shows, etc.  There will be many different ways I'm going to do it. It's going to be a giant pain but rule at the same time.  

2nd January 2007

10:27am: Happy New Year
I had an enjoyable New Years Eve spent winning pop culture trivial pursuit, drinking lots of beer, and singing duets with Andrea to the tune of Hello by Lionel Ritchie.  Good times.  Here are a couple of bullet style points.

- My internet new year's resolution is to quit reading the non-stick wrestling folder at the DVDVR.  I will use Purotopia more because I want to get back into Puro and Antelope friggin' rules. 

- I've been working on a Dave Meltzer star ratings database.  It's just his 3 stars and higher matches and I'm going to have stats on it at some point.

- I won Guitar Hero II, I'm not sure that it has the repeat playability the first one has but I enjoyed it.  Pscyobilly Freakout turned out to be fantasticly hard.

1:07pm: Even a Jew can celebrate Christmas
I just had a delightful time in Cleveland this weekend hanging with Andrea's family.  I partook in Holiday cheer.  But I'm sure you want to know what I got.  

1. A nice framed picture of the Chicago skyline from a really neat angle.  When you come over, you can see it.
2. Latke Larry - It's a silly toy that has Jerry Stiller's voice singing a song about Latke's.
3. Def Leopard's Greatest Hits

AND THE MOTHERLOAD 

Guitar Hero II including THE WIRELESS GUITAR!!!!!!!

Merry Christmas Everybody

10:42am: Best of the WWF in the 90s
I've decided that I'm also going to do the best of the WWF in conjunction with the best of WCW.  MOstly because there are only 81 matches and I've got a lot of them on tape already and it's nice to change them up every now and then.
10:32am: Pre work Wrestlewatching
#198 - Alex Wright vs. Ultimo Dragon - Clash XXXV (8/21/97 - TV Title) – Was anybody aware that Dave Prazak does a perfect imitation of Alex Wright's "rave dance?"  Ask him to do it next time you see it.  The other interesting thing tied to this match is that WCW had the first ever video package to let people know that he's Ultimo Dragon and not Ultimate Dragon.  Ultimo is spanish for "the last Student of Bruce Lee."  Bet yo udidn't know that!  BTW, this match was ok but it was great.  But that's what happens near the end of these lists.  One of the people involved in the voting happened to vote for this match so it's included.  Certaintly not bad but not enough to keep my interest.

3:10pm: ATTN: Buffy, The Vampire Slayer fans

I was checking out the Music Box and I see this listed...

Sing-A-Long Buffy the Vampire Slayer


January 12 & 13 at Midnight. Advance tickets will be available soon through Ticketweb. Please check back.

I don't have a fucking clue what the hell this is.  My obvious guess is they're showing the musical episode from season 6.  If you haven't seen season six yet, I highly suggest you watch it and learn the musical.  This is going to be an awesome thing.

10:45am: Random WCW from the list
I have watched some matches and these are my thoughts. 

#104 - Barry Windham/Curt Hennig vs. Chris Benoit/Dean Malenko - Uncensored '99 (3/14/99 - Tag Titles) -  I was under the impression that the tag title finals between these two teams were also on the list.  Its not but it happened at Superbrawl IX.  The tournament was double elmination.  Benoit and Malenko lost once while Windham and Hennig didn't have a loss.  That meant Malenko and Benoit had to win two back to back to win. Suffice to say, they didn't but it was a good match.  This was the rematch but it's a lumberjack strap match where the lumberjacks have straps.  The interesting thing about these matches is that, whether it's because Hennig and Benoit don't get along or what, but there are numerous times were it looks like a fight.  Adds a nice bit of realism into wrestling you don't see.  I sometimes like when a wrestler has a hard time getting somebody into a move or the other guy fights a little bit harder than normal.  Makes you believe what you're seeing isn't a choreographed specticle.

#112 - Fit Finlay vs. Steve Regal - Nitro (4/96 - Parking Lot Brawl) –  Speaking of matches that seem real.  The Finlay/Regal matches from this time period are legendary in these parts because of how stiff they are.  While the parking lot brawl wasn't good in a wrestling sense, it was amazing as a specticle.  These two beat the shit out of each other while slamming the other through car windows and stuff like that.  Think the fight in Lionheart but directed by Walter Hill. 

#146 Eddy Guerrero vs. Dean Malenko - Starrcade '97 (12/28/97 - Cruiserweight Title
) -  This was a good match, as you can expect from these two.  It starts off a little slow but then it builds into a nice match.  It felt like a nice sequal to their ECW matches that everybody raves about.  Just good hard work for them on a show that had the worst finish ever. 

#19 Juventud Guerrera vs. Blitzkreig – Spring Stampede ’99 (4/11/99) –  Spring Stampede 1999 was an excellent show top to bottom.  I haven't rewatched the other two matches that are in the DVDVR list but I did watch this one.  Generally considered the third best opening match in PPV history (the other two are Pillman/Liger via Superbrawl II and Owen vs Bret via Wrestlemania X)  This one almost felt like the precurser, the blueprint, if you weeel, for the X DIvision you see today.  It's no wonder Jack Evans almost was the new Blitzkreig.  It's almost a shame that Blitz never got the chance to really make an impact in wrestling but I guess he had other things he felt like doing.  FInish is also great because it's a top rope Juvi Driver.  Its as sick as it sounds.

7:01am: Disappointing winner
The Red Eye today held their own silly election based around which a person would prefer to do for nightlife. Examples would be if somebody prefers to order from the beer list or the martini list or how they prefer to get their grove on (DJs or Jukebox). The disappointing result is that people prefer backing track karaoke over live band karaoke 59.7% to 40.3%. I'm not surprised, however. These are a couple of reasons why I think it wins.

1. More places offer backing track karaoke over LBK.
2. BTK will just naturally have more song selections.
3. More songs for girls to sing.
4. Singing with a live band scares many people because it tends to be such a large focal point for the singer
5. Sometimes the hosts can be assholes to bad singers so it has to scare some people off.

But I'll always prefer LBK because it's much more fun and a real band always sounds better than the shitty background music used on karaoke discs.

7:57am: Jesse is going to kill me
I got a haircut yesterday. I got it cut too short on the back and sides but the top is still kinda long. The cool thing is, my hair will grow back out but it's going to be short for a while. Sorry man.

7:55am: Top WCW matches of the 90s - Beach Blast 1992
8) Ricky Steamboat vs. Rick Rude – Beach Blast ’92 (6/20/92 – Ironman Match) - It has been years since I've seen the 30 min ironman match between Steamboat and Rude. If you're unfamiliar with ironman matches, the winner has the most falls in a set time period. Most seem to be 60 mins but this one was only 30. I think those make for tighter matches because wrestlers don't have to spend chunks of time filling in 60 mins worth of wrestling. What makes this match great is how smartly booked it is. For instance, Rick Rude goes off the top rope to deliver a devestating knee to the back of the head. Rude, at this point, is already up two falls to nothing. Because off the top rope moves are illigal, Rude gets DQd. But Rude calmly picks up Steamboat and small packages him to get the two fall advantage back. Since the move was so deadly it allowed Rude to gain a more unfair advantage because Steamboat is basicly motionless. The match is also great because of just how awesome the finishing sequence is. Steamboat gets a head 4 to 3 with only a few seconds left. Rude then goes into all sorts of ways to get Steamboat down but nothing will work and the time expires.

23) Sting vs. Cactus Jack – Beach Blast ’92 (6/20/92 – Falls Count Anywhere) - This was a ton of fun because it's always great to see a motivational Sting working a match he would normally not be wrestling in. As Fraser pointed out, it's a shame Cactus' first big push in wrestling also came at the time that Bill Watts got rid of the "pretty blue mats" on the outside. Thus, Cactus having to do all his sig spots to the concrete could not have helped his body at all.

187) Scotty Flamingo vs. Brian Pillman – Beach Blast ’92 (6/20/92 – Light Heavyweight Title) - Definately one of Scott Levy's best matches ever. It was amazing to Fraser and I just how long they gave both guys to tell a story. The other major surprise was that not only did Scotty Flamingo win the belt in the match, he did it 100% clean. Say what you want about Watts, there wasn't a whole lot of cheap wins under his reign.

There was a Steiners vs Gordy/Williams match but we really didn't watch it. I did see a lot of back drop drivers and suplexes so I look forward to re watching it soon.
