NTSOE: Stranger Things

Well, I thought this would be a fun little thing to share. Just to remind everyone that NTSOE is still alive and well… And also on Project Derailed! GO THERE NAO!

But once you come back, you should listen to Nick, Fiona, and I discuss Stranger Things. Believe it or not, I wasn’t much of a fan.

Change in Schedule for Tanner Reviews

So, considering that school has started again and with the way that my schedule has been going, I have decided to change up when I make posts on Tanner Reviews for the first time in two years.

From now on, posts from Tanner Reviews will be posted on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays instead of the traditional Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday! Thank you all for continuing to follow me and my website and I am really looking forward to several more years with Tanner Reviews.

Tanner Reviews SummerSlam

SummerSlam_2016Well, here we are again. I noticed quickly that my WrestleMania 32 review was quite popular back in March. However, I did not want my website to become dedicated to wrestling since this is a movie and video game review site first and foremost. So doing a review on all big WWE events would feel… Well excessive. But there are the Big Four to consider, the four biggest matches in WWE’s yearly line up, WrestleMania, SummerSlam, Survivor Series, and Royal Rumble. So I decided that I would cover the four of them instead to reach a nice and happy medium.

Overall, I have to say that 2016 SummerSlam was good. It certainly was one of the better events on the WWE card this year and left us with some amazing feel good moments as well as some good matches to boot. There were some problems with the night, but overall, the pros outweigh the cons. So we are going to look at all the matches on the card and see how they went down. The Pre-Show matches will be covered, but to a lesser extent then the main card. Continue reading

Top Ten Most Unpopular Pokemon

Well, considering that I just wrote about my favorite Pokemon of all time, it did get me thinking… There are some Pokemon out there that are loved by everyone. Those special Pokemon that just have the look that generates amorism among the community. They are your Growlithes, your Umbreons, your Charizards, and your Greninjas… But there are some out there, that are not enjoyed by others. There are some Pokemon out of the 721+ that people just do not like. It is bound to happen that there will be some that are loved and some that are hated… So this list is to commemorate Pokemon that are not enjoyed by the community of players, the Most Unpopular Pokemon.

I will say that this list will be a Top 10 list, however, some sections will feature multiple Pokemon, due to the fact that their infamy is shared among an evolution tree or for the same reasons. So with that said, here are a few honorable mentions before you reach the infamous ten. Continue reading

Top Ten Favorite Pokemon

So considering the resurgence of Pokemon in my life, I realized that I never did a list of my favorite Pokemon of all time. So why not start today? These are my all time favorite Pokemon!

Now I will stress a few things. First and foremost, this is my own opinion, obviously, and do not have a direct correlation with the greatest Pokemon. If you want that, go check out that post I made about three years ago. Second, my childhood centers around first and second generation Pokemon. As such, this will be first and second generation heavy. Sorry, thems the breaks. With that said, let’s start with some honorable mentions. Continue reading

Tanner Reviews Suicide Squad

Suicide_Squad_(film)_PosterSo, after months of speculation, claims that it is going to be bad because it is in August, and experiencing the precursor that was Batman v. Superman, I have to say that Suicide Squad is alright. On a story level, the movie is not good at all and the cinematics are standard affair. But all things considered, I didn’t hate the movie and left with a general feeling of semi-satisfaction. So I guess I can chalk this one up as a shittier grittier version of Guardians of the Galaxy. There is surprisingly a lot to talk about this movie though on both the good and the bad side so at least there is that as well.

Five Reasons Why WWE Studios is the New Cannon Films

For those of you unaware, Cannon Films was a beautiful little movie making company that was prevalent in the 1980’s. Focusing on creating B Movies on an A budget, Golan and Globus were able to make a massive number of cult successes that spanned from the horrendous schlock of The Apple, to buying old movie rights to make sequels such as Death Wish 2, to creating action fighting movies like one of my favorite of all time Bloodsport, and finally even dipping into the realms of fantasy with Masters of the Universe. Cannon Films were truly a treasure for anyone who enjoys watching good bad movies. A lot of them are  bad, but they can all at least be memorable for their badness and for the most part can be enjoyable.

Cannon Films went under, for the most part, back in the late 80’s to early 90’s. But as time has worn on, there seems to be a new studio that has risen up to take their place and that studio is WWE Studios. It is weird, I know. But if you look at the parallels between the two you will see a striking number of similarities to the point that I dare say that we may have a new Cannon films for a new generation of movie watchers. Without further ado, these are the five reasons that WWE Studios is the new Cannon Films. Continue reading
