Top 20 Most Hated Wrestling Matches of All Time

So seeing as how I have created lists on my favorite movies and video games of all times. I thought it would be fun to do some for wrestling as well. So, seeing as how this is going to be long, I am going to keep this short and say that I am going to do two lists. My favorite WWE wrestling matches of all time and my most hated WWE wrestling matches of all time. Sound cool? GREAT! So with that being said, let’s start off with those matches that I ABSOLUTELY cannot stand! Please keep in mind that these are matches that I personally hate with a burning passion. While this will coincide with matches that are terrible, because I have good fucking taste and anyone who says otherwise is a dirty liar, the matches will be ranked on how much they drive me nuts as opposed to their general badness. With that said, let’s start with some honorable mentions. Continue reading “Top 20 Most Hated Wrestling Matches of All Time”

Tanner Reviews San Andreas

San_Andreas_posterAlright, I tried to review this during the summer and it didn’t work out so hot. That is what I get for my schedule, even in the summer, being shit. But now I can give it the critical review that it deserves! I can’t say that I am at all surprised by what I saw. It isn’t so much a bad thing as it is an expected thing. San Andreas is one of those movies that was tailor made for the summer blockbuster. It is a flashy, high action disaster movie that is intended to give you that sweet sensation of adrenaline before you go on with your day. While it may not have a sustained longevity in our memories, San Andreas is still solid on its own merit.

Ray J Gaines (Dewayne Johnson) is a rescue technician and helicopter pilot who is currently in the midst of a divorce with his wife Emma (Carla Gugino). One day Emma, her and Ray J’s daughter Blake (Alexandra Daddario) and her new boyfriend, Daniel Riddick (Ioan Gruffard) take a trip to San Francisco on the day that the San Andreas Fault begins to shift, creating a 9.1 Earthquake that begins to tear the state of California a new asshole.

In the chaos, Emma is able to call on her dad who quickly jumps to the rescue in amazing vehicle stealing action as he tries to find his way into San Francisco to save his wife and daughter from the collapsing city. Continue reading “Tanner Reviews San Andreas”

Tanner Reviews Furious 7

Furious_7_poster… You know… I wrote a review a couple of years back about how the Saint’s Row franchise just wasn’t my thing and it never would be my thing. I just didn’t like the premise or the nonsensical gameplay, though freely admit that I could see the appeal and never truly faulted it for existing. Now, I find myself starring into the same problem in a different medium. The Fast & The Furious is a franchise that I have never liked. The movies have gained traction over the years, but as a kid when they first came out, I always just saw it as testosterone car fueled wank material where people who had a thing for big, fast, and loud cars could beat off to races and action sequences. Then, over time, the movies evolved into something bat shit insane and action packed… But I still can’t force myself to like them. I admit that Furious 7 may be a good movie and I see so many examples of the excellent film making that went into it, but I still have to chalk this up to something that just isn’t for me.

Top Ten Greatest WWE Champions

20130815_642x361_Titles_WWETitleAnd so we come to the end of this special with the big belt, the WWE World Championship. I have to say that this list did not come lightly. There have been some legendary names that held this belt and at the end of the day, there are many wrestlers who simply are not going to make the cut due to the fact that there were just better wrestlers to choose from out of the litter. But overall, I took the ten wrestlers who made the belt amazing and those whose careers were shaped because of it. I know this list is going to be controversial, so let’s get started.

From the Vaults: Doom (Film)

Doom_movie_posterToday we open up the doors to The Vault to talk about video game movies. Looking back at the history books, I am not sure there is a good video game movie out there. Mortal Kombat was fun for all the wrong reasons, primarily being a camp fest with little bore and a lot of hair style product. Super Mario Bros. was bad in all the good ways, being one of the most awesomely terrible movies that you can ever watch. The fact is that there is no good video game movies AND if any of you say Resident Evil, I will strangle you! That series sucks so fucking hard and proves that nepotism is alive in well with Milla Jovovich being the star of an action series!

Video game movies are bad for an entire score of reasons. First off, video games are like books. They tell a story, a very long story, that cannot be told within the time frame of a movie. Even eliminating game play, most video game stories run upwards to 3-5 hours. Also, unlike books that try to stick to the premise of the book for the most part, video game movies typically take on an ENTIRELY DIFFERENT concept, even to the extent that the only thing that is the same is the names of characters and the name of the movie (thank you Resident Evil). There are numerous reasons, but for now let us focus on another instance where a video game movie just didn’t get what we came to see, Doom.
