  1. What's these "Special Engagements in 70mm and 35mm" showings of Dunkirk? Is it just Nolan trying to work some hipsters into thinking its in some way better than a regular showing?
  2. Fan cam of the Infinity War trailer (contains nerds whooping, cheering and clapping)
  3. He'll never been on the level of Bowl-Cut Kid
  4. I had it recently with the Great Balls of Fire main event. I was doing a bunch of shifts at work earlier in the week so wasn't able to watch it until the Thursday. I stayed away from websites that might have had the result, stayed out of any relevant topics on here etc. So I sits down to watch it on the PS4 and no sooner has the bell rung for the Wyatt/Rollins opener...it skips to the last five seconds of the show and there's Lesnar with the belt. Sure it was the result I imagined it would be, but you just never know. I'd never had any skipping issues with the network on PS4 before, and the one time I avoid a result for any length of time and it went & fucked up. It kept skipping to the same point no matter how many times I tried to watch the show, had to resort to watching through chromecast in the end
  5. So that's where they got the idea for the Punjabi Prison
  6. Similar story up, Hybrid Theory was fucking massive for its time and whether you liked them or not, you can't deny its impact. No other metal band were selling 30 million copies of a single album at the turn of the century. Like I say I was never a fan personally, and outside of what they put out as singles I wouldn't be able to say whether that's a Linkin Park tune or not if you just randomly played me one. I don't think I've heard anything of theirs since 'What I've Done' (at least not knowingly), but I know they were still put out material at a steady rate and from what I've read they had pretty much free-reign on their material which is always a good thing, for a band to make the album that they want to make.
  7. It'll probably end up on the Series 7 soundtrack
  8. "I did my time" Former US football star and actor OJ Simpson has been granted parole after nine years in a Nevada prison. "Thank you!" said the 70-year-old, bowing his head as the board approved him for release. Simpson, who was acquitted for a double murder in 1995, has been serving time for armed robbery, assault with a deadly weapon and 10 other charges. He is set to walk free in October after being convicted of a 2007 confrontation at a Las Vegas hotel. The former Hall of Fame running back was found guilty in 2008 - exactly 13 years to the day after he was famously acquitted for the killings of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman. He and a group of five others stormed into a hotel room to confront two sports-memorabilia collectors and seize items that he claimed belonged to him from his career. The hearing for Prisoner 1027820 took place at the Lovelock Correctional Facility, a medium-security prison in the Nevada desert. Simpson told parole officials that the objects he took from the Las Vegas hotel room were later ruled by officials to legally belong to him. "I've spent a conflict-free life," the prisoner said to the board. However, Simpson admitted spousal abuse in 1989 after police responded to a domestic violence call at his home. According to police records, his wife had run from the house screaming to officers: "He's going to kill me!" On Thursday, Bruce Fromong, who one of Simpson's victims in the robbery, testified in favour of his release. "I've known OJ for a long time," said Mr Fromong. "I don't feel that he's a threat to anyone. "He's a good man. It's time to give him a second chance. It's time for him to go home to his family, his friends." Simpson appeared to dab a tear during Mr Fromong's testimony. The prisoner told the commissioners he had helped establish a Baptist prayer meeting in prison, adding: "I could have been a better Christian." The prisoner also rejected suggestions he had an alcohol problem. "I've done my time," he said. "I've done it as well and as respectfully as anybody can. I think if you talk to the wardens they'll tell you. "I've not complained for nine years. All I've done is try to be helpful… and that's the life I've tried to live because I want to get back to my kids and family." In 2013 the Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners granted him parole on some of his convictions, but for not the more violent charges. The prisoner's daughter, Arnelle Simpson, choked up as she told the parole board: "My experience with him is that he's like my best friend and my rock." She added: "He is remorseful, he truly is remorseful."
  9. Blimey, that's a bit of a shocker. Was never a fan of Linkin Park even in my nu-metal teenage days (I was a Limp Bizkit guy), but you can't deny that they were massive at the time and at the forefront of an interesting time for the genre. Very sad news indeed
  10. Pretty much. Bullet Club do it too with the hand gesture and everything, and as they're the hip cool thing to 'dem wans', you've got them doing it after every 2 count. It did find its way onto the main shoes for a bit too, but I think that's died down now.
  11. Me and a mate had a conversation about this very thing recently, though we didn't use Marvel as the example, more about movie scores I general. Avatar is the biggest movie of all time, yet I bet there's very few that could hum the main theme back to you. John Williams' themes are engrained into popular culture, and no matter what you think of his work you can't deny that the majority are instantly recognisable as he's got his own style. Similarly with guys like Danny Elfman and Hans Zimmer until he stopped trying when he worked on Nolan's Batman films. Infact, that's probably to blame more than anything else. Minot saying its a great score or anything (it isn't by any stretch), but that's what they've tried to recreate The only Marvel one I could do is the main from movies Guardians of the Galaxy (from 0:35)
  12. I know we mentioned in the RAW thread after The Drifter cut open open Balor, purely by accident of course, but that two people is as many matches that Oney Lorcan has messed up. I'm sure he isn't doing it on purpose and accidents happen and all, but he really does need to calm it down a bit in general. Great opener and the main event was good, but I don't think it was ever in doubt that Drew was winning that one. No Way Jose foiled by the ringrope forcefield stopping him giving Almas a pasting, babyfaces really act daft sometimes. And "1...2...SWEET", it was mildly amusing the first time it happened around Mania time, you expect stuff like that. 4 months on, it's just infuriating. That and "women's wrestling! Clap clap clapclapclap..."
  13. Yes it was. And that's the thing, you didn't see Roy Slater, but that was clearly just Ed Sheran
  14. So is Elias Sampson a "dangerous worker" now that he's hurt Finn? Everyone else seems to be
  15. TNA: "phew! thank god that's over" (in Cheif Wiggum's voice) It's not that I wanted to see the promotion go under, the more promotions there are around for up & comers to ply their trade can only be a good thing in the grand scheme of things. The thing that needed to go was the TNA name and the awful reputation that it had accumulated over the years. Years of wasted opportunities, broken promises and horrendous decision making. If Panda Energy didn't take care of the financials for so long, they would have gone under years ago. Fucks knows how much the Carters/Panda Energy have lost on it over the years. The promotion just always seemed to have ideas above its station, failing to realise that it was in reality nothing more than a large indie fed. The move to Monday nights for the so called second Monday night war should have been the realisation that they were nowhere near the level they thought they were. What was it? 10 weeks before they moved it back to Thursdays? And some of the people they had on the roster at that time too- Sting, Kurt Angle, RVD, Jeff Hardy, Ric Flair, Booker T, Mick Foley, Kevin Nash, Hulk fucking Hogan! All massive names in the industry, some of the biggest names infact, but the majority were past their prime and from an era that was long past its shelf life. It wasn't so much the WWE alternative as it was the Discount WWE. They just couldn't get the absolute basics right times. Faces booked in advantageous positions in massive gimmick matches for example, that's the most blatantly obvious no-no in wrestling booking! Why would any get behind a set of good guys who have the advantage over the baddies? That's booking 101. Then there was giving things away for nothing than trying to make money from them. AJ Styles v RVD- a PPV worthy World title match. AJ was the ultimate to the indie fans at the time and was the TNA World Champion at the time too. Then you've got RVD, who had debuted six weeks earlier disposing of the icon Sting within seconds in his debut match then got a pasting in the post-match, another thing TNA were great at doing- making the faces look like totally gimps. As TNA was seen as a potential "new ECW" to hardcore internet fans, he was a great fit for them. So a match of the (former WWE Champion) guy who was "held down" and who wasn't give a chance to main event against the Internet golden boy who shit five matches? Well it's a no brainer, we could a series between those two for months on PPV, and AJ's the heel champion so everyone will get invested in an RVD face title chase... nah, we'll just announce it on free telly that it's happening tonight and have RVD win at the first attempt. And there it was, thrown away on free TV with no build whatsoever. The reputation/name it had was just so fucking toxic, it needed to taken out back and put out of its misery
