    As he gets to say that he's 'Very European' while doing said uppercut, I could see that working.

    Is it just me, or have they gotten the build for Brock vs Taker all backwards? So far, Taker has pretty much got the better of Brock in every single encounter... stabbing him with the contract pen, chockslamming Heyman, scaring Brock with his spookyness (making him scream like a little girl). Does anyone actually believe Brock stands a chance a breaking the streak? They should have bit the bullet, and gotten Brock over like a real monster, have him outsmart/get the better of Taker in the lead up, and then just have Taker overwin at Mania. Perhaps they're just writing it off this year (as it's not the main event), and will do something like that next year (with Bryan?!) Oh, and as mentioned previously... if anyone thinks that Mania is ending any other way than a 5 min long shot of the entire stadium on their feet chanting YES~!, with Bryan on the turnbuckle holding the titles... then you're out of your god dam mind :-) Not even WWE are stupid enough not to have that happen. Surely? (Prediction: the Bryan vs HHH will be a near 5* match, while the triple threat being a solid 3 with the atmosphere taking it to a 4 star)

    For sting to be beaten at Wrestlemania after a 3 month build? No way thats ever going to happen.
  4. Also went to see Looper last night Wasn't as blown away by it as I hoped I was going to be. Sure, it was a decent film, but I just didn't enjoy it as much as I wanted to. It seemed extremely slow in the second act... pretty much as soon as he got to the farm the pace of the film slowed significantly. The acting was pretty great (certainly from JGL and Blunt, Willis not so much), but it's almost as if the director had two films ideas, couldn't decide which to make, so tried to do both at once. And, for me at least, failed to excel at either. The first was a hard sci-fi about time travel and the inherrent possibilty of time paradoxes, the second is a thriller about a guy wanting to protect his family from people that want to hurt them. All the TK stuff was completely unnecessary imo... I'd actually forgotten about it when we first see the kid about to explode, so had to ask my mate what the f was going on. That kid seemed insanely smart, and would have had a solid motive for disposing of the Loopers, so I don't see the need for the TK nonsense. All comparisons to 12 Monkeys, Source Code, Terminator or Moon are overblown imo... it's not in the same league as those films.
  5. Wow. oh, and "Hello to David Morrissey"

    A great man ~! I watched it this morning after the grand prix, and my god was it great.... the walk to the ring, the reaction, the fight, the finish, the face turn, the post match interview, the interview with ariel, the muscle flex and the "put them in a ball, turn them side ways and stick them up his [candy] ass". Tremendous stuff.
  7. lol... what a thread. Bamber officially cares 737.5% more about ska that everyone else does.

    Lesner vs Dos Santos is off. Brock has had another (recurring) bout of diverticulitis. I'm worried this could this be the end of Brock in UFC... it was a hell of an effort for him to come back from the last time he had it, another 8-12 months off and it could be too big a task. Such a shame.

    In the space of two posts this thread went from dead to 5*.

    Velasquez vs Dos Santos = 500,000 buys being optimistic Velasquez vs Lesnar = 1,000,000 buys easily Don't forget which way Dana's bread is buttered.

    If you have any interest in MMA and UFC... you gotta check out this (free) radio show: http://www.f4wonline.com/content/view/17619/ Back story... Gray Maynard is a UFC lightweight fighter, just won his last fight against Kenny Florian (sorry Liam) and has an upcoming title fight against Frankie Edgar. Mike Sawyer is a MMA journalist who has ragging on Gray for a long ass time about him being a boring fighter and how he is unable to actually finish fights (having gone 7 fights without finishing a fight). This show is an interview performed by Mike with Gray, starts off amicably for the first minute or so, before Gray turns on Mike and starts crewing him up. Later turns into a discussion on how to fight to win, rather than how to fight to have fun fights. Great great radio.

    tbh... the state Silva's career is in at the moment (a bunch of really crappy wretched fights, and an absolute pasteing before a lucky last gasp choke), I'd do anything that Dana tells me to. But he won't. 'cos he's a prick.
