We Already Got A Death Wish Remake, It Was Called Death Sentence

The Forgotten Degree

Yesterday, it was revealed that Eli Roth would be directing a new Death Wish film, starring Bruce Willis in his second, old guy, revenge flick (if we’re counting the Red franchise).  Admittedly, there is a lot to like about that news. As Eli Roth branches into more studio fare, he still has his own distinct style when it comes to filming unspeakable acts of violence. And hopefully, this role will knock Bruce out of his catatonic state enough to get a convincing performance out of him. But what struck me as odd, is that no one really brought up the 2007 film Death Sentence, which was essentially the Death Wish remake we never knew we wanted, and is highly under appreciated. If only because it was ahead of the curve on the current state of action affairs.  Continue reading We Already Got A Death Wish Remake, It Was Called Death Sentence

WRASSLIN’ STATE OF MINED: Dean Ambrose Cashes In, Styles Stacks the Deck, and Bray Wyatt Returns (June 20th, 2016)

Taking No Chances

And just like that, everything falls into place. It may seem like the obvious choice now, and it was pretty evident for most leading up to the Money in the Bank ladder match, that Dean Ambrose HAD to win. Not just from a meta, we want our guy to win, standpoint, but even in story. Going all the way back to The Shield’s debut and following months, Dean was tagged as the breakout star. The unstable, slightly squirrely guy, that captivated with his idiosyncratic behavior. Then, it was Roman. Then Rollins, all the while, Dean got pushed further and further back. The 3rd wheel who couldn’t quite keep up with the other two, but not for a lack of effort. Dean needed to win in order to stay relevant, and given the circumstances, he was the only one that could win. This story needs to be told, and we knew it was only a matter of time. So WWE, likely tired of this sure fire feud being delayed by injury, is fasttracking it. Not for Wrestlemania, not for SummerSlam, we’re getting The Shield 3-Way at Battleground.  Continue reading WRASSLIN’ STATE OF MINED: Dean Ambrose Cashes In, Styles Stacks the Deck, and Bray Wyatt Returns (June 20th, 2016)

WRASSLIN’ STATE OF MINED: The Shield Reunited, AJ and Cena Sign on the Dotted line, and Possible Trombone Sex (June 14, 2016)

Do You Remember The Times?

Monday Night RAW did something tonight. I’d throw a “well obviously” in there, but there have been weeks when the powers that be want to make sure we feel every bit of their three hour show. With the buildup to their biggest “2nd tier” PPV, Money in the Bank, they’ve done a great job of spacing things out a bit for the big matches. No finer example than keeping Reigns/Rollins off TV for a week, and then basically dedicating an entire show to how great The Shield was. In essence, reminding us why we give a damn about this match outside of the WWE championship. Talk shows in a wrasslin’ ring are typically more hit than miss, but this wasn’t about the Asylum, it was about the inmates, which is why it totally worked.  Continue reading WRASSLIN’ STATE OF MINED: The Shield Reunited, AJ and Cena Sign on the Dotted line, and Possible Trombone Sex (June 14, 2016)

Second Pete’s Dragon Trailer Shines A Light On Elliot

I Remember Movies Like This

Pete’s Dragon didn’t make the biggest impression when its teaser dropped a few months back. The original, while well regarded, isn’t part of the current nostalgia demographic. Just a little too old, and not a well remembered as say, Mary Poppins, an iconic Disney film which also married live-action with animated characters. So, the first trailer holding so much back, creating a sense of mystery, may have painted the wrong picture for those unfamiliar with the original film. Not the case with the second trailer. We see Elliot. We also get a good look at what could be a potentially great family flick.  Continue reading Second Pete’s Dragon Trailer Shines A Light On Elliot

WRASSLIN’ STATE OF MINED: The War of Words Begins Between AJ Styles and John Cena (06/06/2016)

It’s All Been Done (And Said) Before

Is it just me, or has RAW been fairly lackluster given the amount of great, individual parts at WWE’s disposal. I’ll get to the ladder sitting session in a bit, but just think about the 1A feud on our TV’s for a second. The Face of TNA for over a decade, is making a run at Star Spangled Cena, with assistance from The Bullet Club. Yet, i’m only excited because I know i’m supposed to be. I guess I keep waiting for the other shoe to fall, hit me in the face, and tell me i’m on a episode of Swerved(which I have been, btw). So the story itself isn’t grabbing me, but it’s not for lack of trying. It actually may come down so a subconscious ting of familiarity.  Continue reading WRASSLIN’ STATE OF MINED: The War of Words Begins Between AJ Styles and John Cena (06/06/2016)
