Post Show: Summerslam 2008

In what was forseen as a weak card for a Summerslam event, WWE managed to pull off quite an exciting show, all things considered. My predictions sat at 57% (4 of 7), lower than expected. In a surprise move, they decided to put the two non-championship matches on top as the main events. Highlighted in bold are the winners of the matches:

MVP Vs. Jeff Hardy:
Shelton Benjamin ran in for some interference. Jeff missed the swanton on MVP, and MVP capitalized with the yakuza kick. This was surprising, but I was happy as MVP is my favourite wrestler in the WWE brand. I hope they push him now into a main event program with Triple H.

Santino & Beth Phoenix
Vs. Kofi Kingston (c) & Mickie James (c)
:
Greatness! Santino and Beth as champions will have limitless comedic opportunities. I can't wait.

Mark Henry (c) Vs. Matt Hardy
through DQ:
Match ended after 2 minutes after Tony Atlas interfered. DQ finishes suck on PPV, but at least they did it to the match that would have brought the card down. They teased a Hardy tag team reunion when Jeff ran in to make the save.

CM Punk (c) Vs. JBL
:
Though I placed my bets on JBL, I'm glad CM Punk won. JBL now looks like a big fat geek, after already being stomped on during Raw this past Monday. They seriously have to build CM Punk as a legit upper carder. He still looks like a mid-card chump holding the belt.

Triple H (c)
Vs. Great Khali
:
In a match that was better than expected.

John Cena Vs. Batista
:
Fun match. The frustration in the face of Batista during the match furthers his decent into heeldom. Can't wait. I think the guy is boring as a face. Having big hulking monsters as heels are usually more effective.

Edge Vs. Undertaker (Hell in a Cell)
:
Crazy match, but easily match of the night. It was madness. After the match, Undertaker left the ring, only to turn back and chokeslam Edge off of a ladder. Edge fell through the canvas and fire and brimstone was seen erupting from the gaping hole. Cheesy but fun.

That's it for now, lata geeks.

REVIEW HAIKUS!!!! (#3)

It's time for another edition of Review Haikus; a feature I like to write when I'm too lazy to write out full reviews~!!! The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 Tony Scott schlockfest~! All his movies seem the same. A needless remake. Denzel's a bad-ass. Given up on Travolta. 1 of 2 ain't bad. Public Enemies Well? Disappointed. I expected more from Mann. The pacing felt off. Acting was good though. Man-crush on Depp and Bale. 5 more syllables! Saw VI Yes, another Saw. Harder to tell them apart. Blood, guts, bad story. Why more Saw movies? Each movie makes less and less. End this series now. ====== Later geeks!

Sam Raimi's Dragging Someone To Hell!!!

It's great to see Sam Raimi back in his form with his latest entry Drag Me To Hell . Simply glorious, it is a horror geek's dream. This is the Sam we all know and love from Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness , before he got all caught up in the comic book geek universe of Spider-Man . After 10 years (from the first time I watched Evil Dead 2 ), he has remained my favourite film director... although he did try my patience with Spider-Man 3 . I know this euphoria that I'm feeling now will be short lived, as even as I type this review, Raimi is already at work on the pre-production of Spider-Man 4 (yay?). So what is there to say about Drag Me To Hell ? This is the way a summer movie should be, touching on all those senses that make movie going an actual experience. There were thrills, chills, laughs and cheers; the way things should be! Drag Me To Hell tells a story of a young loan officer named Christine, who in an effort to advance her own career, has to turn down a

Lt. Aldo Raine wants his scalps!!!!!!!!!!!!

I missed The Inglorious Basterds during its theatrical run and it's a shame too because I'm a fool for Tarantino movies. But I finally got to see it this weekend and I'm happy to say that I mostly enjoyed it. I don't think it's his best movie, but it was damned entertaining. The Inglorious Basterds takes place during World War II and tells its story by following three different groups of characters: from Lt. Aldo Raine and his squad of soldiers infamously known as the Basterds, Col. Hans Landa, a Nazi colonel better known as "The Jew Hunter", and from a young Jewish girl named Shosanna, who had her family murdered by Col. Landa. We follow the Basterds in their Nazi killing business (and business is good) as they lay out a plan to take out several high ranking officials all at once. We follow Shosanna as she operates her theater and lays down her own plans in exacting revenge on the Nazis. And of course, the "Jew Hunter" is hot on their trai
