Beyond The Mat

BeyondTheMatCame across the documentary Beyond the Mat on YouTube (here) so I had to watch it.  Have seen this once about 12 years ago.  Should tell you what this documentary is about if you don’t know.  It tells story about wresters outside the ring.  I came out back in 1999 but was filmed over three to five years before that.  So this was back when the WWE was still the WWF.  It was all same  time when they were really big with the attitude era.  After watching this again and seeing how much things have changed but all so stayed the same.   Back then is was kind of unheard of to see behind the scenes.  Was kind of ground breaking.  Do believe this documentary has made wresting better.  They don’t try to hide as much from the fans any more.  All so the fans get a better understanding what it is like to be a wrestler.  Pretty sure every wrestling fan has seen this but if not check it out while it is still up on YouTube.

The Expendables 2 Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , on November 22, 2012 by getbent57

TheExpendables2Going to start off saying I was very disappointed with the The Expendables 2.  Was hoping for a fun over the top action movie the way it was billed to be.  In an action movie the story is guaranteed to be some what silly.  But this one was really bad.  It was all over the place.  I chalk that to some pretty bad editing.  There are a lot of scenes that flow.  It felt like it was missing stuff.  It gets worst near the end.  Then there is the CGI.  It is really bad.  It looks so fake making it stick out like a sore thumb.  Have seen better CGI in online videos.

I say don’t waste your time and money watching this movie.  You might be saying, but there are all kinds of famous action movie actors all together in one film.  But that does not save it.  This a pass.

AWOLNATION – Soul Wars

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , on November 21, 2012 by getbent57

It has been over a year since I have posted a AWOLNATION song.   Enjoy these guys music so I thought I would share another one.  This is another great song, Soul Wars, off their album Megalithic Symphony.  While there is no official video there is on right off their YouTube page.   It has the lyric over a slide show.

GameOfThronesSeasonTwoDVDGood news we have a release date for season two Blu-ray/DVD of Game of Thrones.  At first was thinking it would be March but it is much sooner than that.  The day is February 19, 2012.  Well that is still far way but not too far.  Will be buying a copy on Blu-ray.  It comes with a bunch of extras.  Not to sure what they are yet.  But sure they will be good.   Can’t wait to see these episodes again.  Just might have to watch the first season all over again as well to.

Need For Speed: Most Wanted Demo

NfSMostWantedGave the demo a try for Need for Speed: Most Wanted – A Criterion Game a try.  Have not been a fan of the Need for Speed games for years.  But now that Criterion has taken over the franchise it has to help.  Enjoyed the demo very much.  It was the most exciting demo I have very tired.  All the cars, the environments, sound track and the announcers voice pull you in.  But after a new minutes it looks all very familiar.  If you have played Burnout Paradise it is pretty much the same.  Of course with a new coat of paint and tweaks.  This is not a bad thing since that game was awesome.  I am pretty sure if it didn’t have the Need for Speed title it would have been called Burnout Paradise 2 or something like that.  Strongly thinking about picking this up at some point.  Highly recommend giving the demo a try.

Arrow

Now that the six episode of Arrow has aired thought I would talk about it again.  After watching the pilot episode I had high hopes for this show and they came true.  By the end of each episode you are left wanting more.  What I really like about this show is how each episode is different but all so cares the storyline though out.  It has you asking questions, answers them and it has you asking more.  Another strong thing going for it is, it is not watered down.   Do believe there are eleven episodes for season one.  So this kind of makes it the half way point.  Hope they keep going down this path and bring it back for second season and more.  This show is in my top ten list of can’t miss.   If you have not check it out yet do so asap.  You will not be disappointed.

American Chopper Is Ending

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , on November 17, 2012 by getbent57

One of my favourite show is ending again, American Chopper.   The show has changed some much over the years.  It became less about the motorcycles and about about the drama.  But now that they are all some what friends I guess there is less drama so no show.  How ever they are going out with a big live show.  Like last year they are having a build off again.  This time it is called Chopper Live: The Revenge.   Paul Jr., Senior and Jesse are back but this time there is one new group.  Team Fast N’ Loud.  These guys have their own show on Discovery as well.  Have not seen their show but have seen a few previews.  The dates for Chopper Live are December 10 and 11, 2012.  I am guessing they are going to so what they did last time.  Have run down of each bike on the first show, open the voting and then on the next show the winner is picked.
