Iron Man 3 – My Version

By RiggzWednesday - April 24th, 2013Categories: Movies, Originals, Rant, Ugh... Topical

Iron Man 3

So, pretty much as soon as Avengers ended, I came up with, what I thought would be, a pretty good next chapter in the Iron Man saga. As the details and trailers were released for the official third Iron Man film, I was a little disappointed. Admittedly because my idea had been ignored, but also because I felt like opportunities to expand and connect the Marvel Movie Universe would be missed/lost. I’m not the biggest Iron Man comics fan in the world (far from it), so I’d never deem myself as an authority on the character, but I’m incredibly tired of just watching him face-off against robots that look identical to himself. Let me know if this sounds like something you would’ve liked to have seen:

Kenny Omega – The Greatest Pro Wrestler of All-Time?

By RiggzWednesday - August 8th, 2012Categories: Awesome, Rant

 

Growing up, I loved Pro Wrestling. And by “growing up” I mean it was considered a serious career option for me until… well… a couple months ago, I asked Kiddo if I could enroll in a wrestling training camp, not too far from where we live. So yeah, it’s still one of my great passions, but I don’t take the time to watch it any more, probably because as ridiculous as it remains, it isn’t nearly the spectacle it used to be. I still long for an unruly affair where evil clowns had identical half-pint sidekicks, and a tax audit could mean a steel briefcase to the skull. Even though, things might’ve gotten a little more serious in the U.S. (thanks for nothing Randy Orton) there are still those that want Pro Wrestling to be fun.

Leading the charge is Kenny Omega, my new favorite wrestler. Let me count the ways…

The Mystery of the [Amaaaazing] Cosplay Ranger

See that guy above? He’s my hero and it isn’t because we both share a history. We do. He’s my hero because he’s amazing in the strangest way possible.

Your 30-Minute Pachinko “Gameplay” Clip of the Day

By RiggzWednesday - July 11th, 2012Categories: Awesome, Rant, Video Games

People that know me, know that I love slot-machines, not because there’s potential, albeit small potential, to win a ton of money, but because they’ve practically evolved into full-fledged video games, featuring touch-screen action phases and even chairs with embedded Bose speakers. This same evolution has apparently happened in Japan, with Pachinko standing in for America’s dirty slots.

The video above is amazing. I have no idea what’s going on… but a little research reveals that the theme of the game is an anime series from the 70s called Combattler VThe game is so chaotic that I think I died  six times within the first ten minutes of the video.

Some of my favorite moments below…

ICE AGE Unbound: What the Franchise is Really About

By RiggzWednesday - June 20th, 2012Categories: Movies, Originals, Rant

I’m not ashamed to admit that I’ve seen all of the ICE AGE films up to this point*. With ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT on the horizon, I feel it’s my duty to inform Blue Sky Studios that I won’t be skipping Scrat’s latest outing, neither should you, and here’s why…

Stop SOPA – CatRoommate Blackout

By RiggzTuesday - January 17th, 2012Categories: News, Rant, Ugh... Topical

“We’re dicks! We’re reckless, arrogant, stupid dicks. And the Film Actors Guild are pussies. And Kim Jong Il is an asshole. Pussies don’t like dicks, because pussies get fucked by dicks. But dicks also fuck assholes: assholes that just want to shit on everything. Pussies may think they can deal with assholes their way. But the only thing that can fuck an asshole is a dick, with some balls. The problem with dicks is: they fuck too much or fuck when it isn’t appropriate – and it takes a pussy to show them that. But sometimes, pussies can be so full of shit that they become assholes themselves… because pussies are an inch and half away from ass holes. I don’t know much about this crazy, crazy world, but I do know this: If you don’t let us fuck this asshole, we’re going to have our dicks and pussies all covered in shit!”

Occupy Sin City

By RiggzMonday - November 14th, 2011Categories: News, Rant, Ugh... Topical

A couple of thoughts…

1) While I admit the Occupy *insert place here* protests have become fairly muddled in terms of what they’re actually protesting against, the overarching “rich are getting richer / poor are getting poorer” theme IS one that, I think, everyone should be concerned with (unless you’re already rich, in which case, kudos). As with any social movement, as the popularity grows the more everything tends to look like a large bandwagon or fad.

Bite-Sized Reviews – Month of July

By RiggzTuesday - August 2nd, 2011Categories: Movies, Rant

I watch a ton of movies for various reasons. In an effort to keep track of everything I’ve seen, I started writing them down. Then titles became reactions and reactions became “reviews”. Since I have them all lying around I figured I’d just do one big post here, in no particular order other than, arguably, the most popular first. Enjoy! Or don’t…

Catroversial! My Thoughts on Rebecca Black

By RiggzTuesday - March 15th, 2011Categories: News, Rant, Ugh... Topical

Okay, so it’s not like I write stuff for this website every single day, so generally when I do it’s because I think the content of a particular post is irresistibly funny and I want to share it or because a fairy hit me with the spark of creativity and I can’t help myself. This fits into neither criteria. It’s “topical” and “opinionated”. Pretty much the kind of stuff that most sites post to get some quick traffic, before everyone inevitably moves on to whatever the next hot topic happens to be. This is not my intention. TELL YOUR FRIENDS. I just couldn’t help myself.

As I’m sure most of you are aware, a song/video has been circulating the internet, garnering itself a ton of attention, mostly, for how terrible it is. I’m not here to dispute it’s worth (it’s terrible), but I am hoping to clear up some of the polarized opinions on the matter.

The BEST Predators Review [Spoilers]

By RiggzWednesday - July 14th, 2010Categories: Awesome, Movies, Rant

So, I saw Predators this weekend. My personal opinions of the film are of minor importance here, so I’ll just rush through and say that the movie wasn’t a travesty like AvP, but still doesn’t hold a candle to the original. Pandering to the current mindless movie-going audience is partly to blame, but beyond that some of the movie is poorly constructed and clearly doesn’t understand why people are still enjoying Arnold’s action movie today.

That being said, the movie is getting great word of mouth. Something that doesn’t usually happen with mediocre movies. I don’t understand this and a lot of times it makes me feel all alone in the world (though an empty apartment and a girlfriend living 3000 miles away doesn’t help either). Luckily, like a knight in shining armor, a hero steps forward to show me that I’m not alone. And even though the internet reminds me daily how many opinions differ from my own, there are still others out there who share my point of view. One such other goes by the name “RG“. He’s a first-time commenter, responding to a post at Topless Robot. And he’s written the BEST Predators review ever.

And WHY THE F*CK WAS LAURENCE FISHBURNE FAT? He must be one hell of a scavenger.

I KNOW! Please read the full spoiler-filled review below.
