Kevin’s Blog: Almost Live, Definitely Half Assed Review of #WWE #Raw

Sleepy_Puppies

My dogs crashed out early which is strange enough in itself. When you add an open front door to the equation, I’m really confused. Time to start this review though before I inevitably have to take them on another spin. Let’s roll.

I wasn’t paying attention to Twitter today so I had no idea they worked an angle on it. John Cena tries to climb aboard the Daniel Bryan bandwagon with his promo. Brickie comes out without the Brad Maddox part. Ryback comes out to merchandise. Doesn’t he know it’s summer? I’ll give the marketing department an F on this one. John, it’s two dollars that Ryback owes you. Vickie almost cracked a smile at the granny panties on a pole match. Ryback decides to go with a last man standing match. Mitchell Cool had “sources at the scene” when Heyman & Lesnar went to WWE Headquarters. It was a scary situation according to Jerry Lawler’s sources. Why couldn’t hey get real words? Real sources. They work for the WWE. It happened hours ago. You used Twitter to announce this angle. All of the information should be out already. The angle destroys itself.

Randy Orton is taking on Damien Sandow because the WWE liked their match on Smackdown. Sandow had good points but a terrible rhyme. Awkward commercial break as Orton is in the middle of a drop kick. RKO. The crowd goes crazy. Fair enough match but whatever. I dig the moment of going to the announcers but having Big Show KO Orton. Cool called it out then they went to replay.

My lady thinks it’s bull shit that she didn’t get to see Chris “Jerry” Jericho and his light up jacket last week. I agree. The traveling dancing circus are going to help Jericho judge Fandango‘s dancing. Lawler makes an awful ballet joke. R Truth comes out for more dance. Fandango leaves after R Truth wins on the score cards. This gimmick is ridiculous. So is this Lesnar angle. Just another partial answer segment. I don’t get it. I’m not more invested in the answer.

Daniel Bryan is challenging Ryback again. Ryback turns him down. Kane steps up. Ryback rules. Another solid segment. Dolph Ziggler is taking on Alberto Del Rio again. Why did I watch Smackdown? Jack Swagger decides to show his mug with Zeb. Dolph gets kicked in the head off a missed enziguri. Jack Swagger gets to look really good. Ouch, it looked like Dolph & Alberto took head shots with the ladder. Upon further review, sell job by Ziggler. Del Rio looked like he took one in the noggin.

Jeremy’s One Paragraph Movie Review: Men in Black 3

Men-in-Black-3When the first trailer debuted for this movie it was groan inducing. Oh look Will Smith is being sarcastic and shit again. Is that a gruff Tommy Lee Jones? Wait, what the hell is Josh Brolin doing in this movie? The most important question though was ;  was another Men in Black movie really necessary? Was anyone clamoring for a follow up after the disaster of Men in Black 2? So, going in to this expectations were low and part of e really wanted to hate this movie. Well, despite all of that, Men in Black 3 was pretty entertaining. Sure it is full of flaws and was a little too proud of its cleverness (Lady Gaga is an alien? No way!) but it was at least fun. It ran the risk of losing the audience though as the set up took a it too long but once the time travel aspect is enacted the movie takes off at a rather brisk pace. The film also has the positive creative direction to barely explain the time travel rules while at the same time minimally giving the audience an idea of what they can and can;t do. make sense? Well welcome to Men in Black 3. Just go with it and do not think of what is going on for maximum enjoyment. -Jeremy
