The True Story of WrestleMania


Recently I have watched The True Story of WrestleMania. This DVD tells about how the idea for Wrestlemania came about, how hard it was to get it started, and what would have happened if it would've failed.

As the DVD goes along, we find out that every year the show was going to be bigger and better than the year before. This is what happens when the brain child behind this event is Vince McMahon. Yes, he is the genius who brought this event to the people.

The first couple of years (85-87), it had to be watched on closed circuit TV. Why? because PPV wasn't around then. Made sense. Also made more money for they comapny.

Ever since 1985, WrestleMania, has become more extravagant every year and will continue to do so. I say this deserves an 8

Many different kinds of movies

This post is coming from something a friend of my friend Alex posted on facebook. His comment had to do with kinds of movie. I never really thought about it, but, there are different kinds of movies that come out in bunches. Some of those movies are: sports, video game, and movies based on TV shows.

The only reason why I decided to use this topic as a blog is because it is interesting, and gives movie goers something to think about.

Some sports movies that can fit into this blog are: Rudy, The Bad News Bears (Walter Matthau), Rookie of the Year, and countless others. I just chose those ones because they were the first ones that came to mind. I know, they are the ones that you may not like. Me, I like them. Why? Because, they get you to fall in love with the main characters in some way. That's my opinion.

Right now the video game movies that come to mind are Street Fighter, and Mortal Kombat. Again, I chose these, because they are the ones that I saw and found enjoyable. Go ahead disagree, it's your right.

One TV show that was made into a movie that I enjoyed was Masters of the Universe based on the He-man cartoon. What made this movie so good was that it was so awful. Oh yeah, I was five when I first saw it.

That's Jenga


On Friday March 18, 2011, I the author of this blog, saw the Simon Pegg/Nick Frost written movie Paul. There are some things that I did like about it and some that I didn't.

One of the first things that I liked was the cast, which consisted of Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Jason Bateman, Sigorney Weaver, and Seth Rogen as the Voice of Paul. The cast well assembled in my opinion with the exception of Rogen who I am not a big fan of.

Second thing that I like was the story. Why? It was well written, it certainly filled the 100 minutes, and it kept you watching the screen the entire time.

One thing I didn't like was the comedy moments. To me the attempt was there, but it didn't stick. Maybe it's just me, or maybe my sense of humor got up and left.

I give this movie a 5 1/2

These Guys Are a Bunch of Jackasses


I know not many people are fans of the Jackass franchise, but I find it funny. Many people might actually ask, "these guys actually made a movie?" Three to be precise.

I'll admit the stuff they do in movies is stupid, but it is hilarious. Am I saying the stunts of Jackass and Jackass 2 are smart and intelligent? No, but they seem to be thought out.

I know the thought out comment doesn't make sense, but in a weird way it does. Yes, I know there will be people who will be up my ass for that statement, but that is how I feel.

Also, I found the first two Jackass movies were funny. After I watch the third one, I'll write about that. On a scale of 1-10 I give Jackass an 8 and Jackass 2 a 8.5

I Saw This Movie in 3-D


Yes, this is another one of my painstakingly boring Saw Blogs. OK, so here I am to talk about it anyway. I know many people will be thinking "Oh God, not another blog."

This had to be the best and most interesting movie out of the seven. One of the many reasons is because, it had the only trap that was held outside. Do I know why that stands out to me? No, but I am not really sure how to say it.

I guess it is because of the return of some old Characters, the traps being even more gruesome, the rivalry between Jill (Jigsaw's widow), and Hoffman (a corrupt police detective).

Another reason why Saw 3-D was interesting, was the return of Dr. Gordon from the Saw film. Was this a smart move to bring him back this late? Yes, and no. Yes, because you kept wondering what happened to him. It wasn't smart to bring him back this late for the same reason.

I mean it was smarter to hold out on Gordon coming back this later. Why? because it's like did he survive? did he die? will they find him? I totally agree with this choice. Why? Because you knew he was going to come back, but when. Also, if he was coming back, it made you think is Gordon going to carry on Jigsaw's work?

Unfortunately, I'm not gonna say everything. Go see it.
