Certinly one of the best Bond films for me. A very well directed movie that is almost always a feast for the eye in one way or another. The action and chase scenes are highly engaging and scattered through the movie in moderate, fullfilling doses. The dialogue is quaint. The performances of are magnificent. Creig played Bond better than ever, Dench got a lot of time for her character and used it with much skill. The supporting cast was also very strong. If that all was not enough, we are treated to one of the best Bond songs and one of the best Bond villains.
The movie has a few kinks to work out, like being fairly predictable or unBondish at times, but overall it is nothing that detracts from the overall experience too much. This movie in many ways is everything that a modern Bond movie should be, at least in my eyes.
Money in the bank 2015 is here to continue a streak of rather unimpressive WWE PPVs of 2015. I really have not enjoyed most of it that much to be honest.
To start it off we have a money in the bank match. I will say it right now that the only realy problem I have with this math is Sheamus winning it. Nobody wanted him to win then and nobody wants him to cash in now. The sad part is that Neville, Dolph Ziggler or even Roman Reigns could have really benefited from it very much. Sadly WWE creative decided to put their trust into Sheamus God knows why. At least the match itself did not suck too much.
Ryback vs Big Show for the intercontinental championship was a wasted match. It only lasted 5 minutes before The Miz interrupted it. The sad part is that these 5 minutes we had were actually pretty entertaining, especially for 2015 Big Show. The match was not given an opportunity to playout like it should and it ended up being just a waste of time.
Up next Cena and Owens had a match to try and save this PPV. Let me say it right now, Cena has been consistantly participating in some of the best mathes and feuds of 2015 and this match did not dissapoint. Every star brough their A game in these 20 minutes of awesomness. Yes, Cena won and nobody really wanted to see that but at least Kevin Owens still came out of this match looking really strong. Without a doubt one of the best WWE matches of 2015.
The New Day vs The Prime Time Players was a joke. A titles match with a clean pin that lasted only 5 minutes. There is really no excuse for it. It was not just short but also pretty mediocre in on itself which is a shame because both teams can put on a terrific match, which they actually will go on to do in the future but not on the night of this PPV.
The Main Event was Ambrose VS Rollins in a ladder match for World Heavyweight Championship and it was unbelivably boring. It was drown out, at times sloppy and just not capturing. Dean could not sell his leg injury properly which made thing even more ridicilous. The biggest problem I have is that this match was not just boring, it was also VERY LONG. The match lasted 35 and a half minutes. I mean most of Wrestlemania matches don't even take this long. I don't even remember if I finished this match or just walked away after about 20ish minutes.
Basicly overall there was a single truly worthy match on the entire card and while it was one of the best matches of the year, the rest of the show sucked pretty bad with either short and uniteresting matches or drawnout boring ones. I can't give this PPV anything more than a 4 for everything I already mentioned above.
Oh Royal Rumble 2014....I don't think I ever heard as much booing on a single PPV in my entire life and honestly for all the good reasons for most of the time.
The PPV actually got off on a very strong start. We had ourselves a wonderful 20 minute match of Daniel Bryan VS Bray Wyatt. It was easily one of the best matches of Brey's carrier as well as the greatest match of the night. The crowd was on fire mostly because of their love for Daneil Bryan and it added to an already greatly choreographed match. Sadly this could be the only truly good match of the entire PPV
Brock Lesnar vs Big Show was a fluke. Big Show was injured going into the match so we did not get much wrestling at all. The actuall match lasted around 2 minutes. The rest of the time we had to look Brock Lesnar beating on Big Show with multiple chairs. I disliked the booking on this thing to be frank. Not a single good thing came out of this excuse for a feud.
Randy Orton vs Cena was when the booing of the night really started and it is hard to blame the fans. People have seen Orton Vs Cena more times than WWE cares to admit. This feud needs to die and be forgotten once and for all. To top it off the match itself was certinly not among the best in Cena vs Orton library. To tell you the truth the fans chanting stuff like: "Boo", "We Want Divas", "Daniel Bryan", "Insert Wrestler's name they would rather see", "This is Awful" actually made this match more bareble. At least Orton knew how to work with it and got some legitimate heel heet. Still the match was a wreck.
Then there was the cherry on top of the cake that was the FU to the fans - The Royal Rumble match.Now the first half was actually really good. The booking was smart, we had a return from Kevin Nash, the wrestling itself was good for a royal rumble match. Still somewhere in the middle fans got tired of waiting for Daniel Bryan to show up....little did they know. The longer match went on the more negative the crowd became. Finaly when the 30th participant was revealed to be Rey Mysterio, the fans started booing their lungs out. I mean poor Rey got more booing in this match than he ever had in his entire career. With fans being rightfuly angry WWE decided to do even more spitting in our face. The one person that people did not want to win royal rumble was Batista. If WWE would have went for Dolph Ziggler, Romany Reigns (which they did the next year and the push failed miserably because of the wrong timing) or even Sheamus, the fans would not have been so angry. I mean who wanted to see Randy Orton VS Batista at main event at Wrestlemania? Still Batista won to much outrage.
Excluding the exellent opening match this PPV was a trainwreck through and through. The most booing you will ever hear in one PPV and a huge spit in the face of the fans. To tell you the truth the only thing that makes me want to give this PPV a good rating is the first match but one match is not enough by far especially because this PPV is not just bad or boring, it is outright offencive with WWE throwing a middle finger to the fans in the worst possible way. For this reason I can not for the life of me give this PPV more than a 3 and even 3 is kind of pushing it when only 20 minutes of a 2 hour and 45 minute PPV are worth watching.
Wrestlemania is a darn solid Mania that is sadly suffering from two mediocre main events.
The Mania XXI starts with a solid match between Rey Mysterio and Eddie Guerrero (RIP). A great way to start off the years biggest PPV.
Following that we have the first ever "Money in the Bank" match and it is a casebook case of a great ladder match. We have wonderful talents like Chris Benoit, Chris Jericho, Christian, Edge and Kane all laying one heck of a smackdown on each other with CHris Benoit being a standout for putting his body through what looked like unimaginable amount of legit pain. On top of the match just being enetraining, it really helped cement Edge as an opportunistic R rated superstar we all love today.
Undertaker vs Randy Orton was considered by many one of the first truly great Undertaker WrestlMania matches and for all the good reasons. Young Randy really showed off his talent in this match with the "Legend Killer" gimmick really adding spice to the entire storyline. I also do not really need to tell you that Undertaker in his younger days (sort of he was about 40) was great. A great addition to the PPV
The next match of Kurt Angle vs Shawn Michaels was undeniably match of the night For 27 and half minutes Angle and Michaels constantly show you how to make an unforgetable match. It is thrilling, tense, very technical and organic. An instant classic.
Then we had a one minute of Big Show vs Akebono sumo match.....boy I sure did not need to see Big Show wear a sumo uniform. Hello Nightmares. Seriously though, I would complain about it being uninteresting and unneccery (which it is) but the whole match lasted like a minute and did not really take away from the show.
Now the next match is where the PPV really dissapoints and it does so at the worst possible way: dissapointing main events. First we have a Cena vs JBL match. Now Cena has a potential to pull off some great matches and if you disagree then we have been watching different WWE all that time. JBL I don't really care about, honestly. Sadly this match is one of the first prime exampes of sucky Cena matches. Cena gets beat up for 7-8 minutes then suddenly busts out AA and STF and wins. Uninspired, boring and dissapointing. I mean main even was shorter than the freaking kick off match, clocking on only 11 and a half minutes.
The second main event was not as much of a dissapointment, but was still nothing special. Triple H vs Batsita was a decent match all in all. I myself do really like Batista and have a softspot for Triple H (especially his theme songs and intros). This main event clocked in at a healty 21 and a half minutes. It is everything you expect from a decent-solid HHH vs Batista match.
So to top it all off this wrestlemania has a great kickoff match, a legendary first time "Money in the Bank" match, a solid Mania Undertaker match, an alltime classic of Angle vs Michaels, but really loses the momentum during both of the main events which is kind of a big thing. To tell you the truth if the Mania's main event was Angle vs Michaels while Cena's and Triple H's matches were somewhere in the middle, I would gladly name it one of the best WrestleManias ever, but sadly having the two ending matches being rather dissapointing and not up to standarts really hurt it. I do still consider it to be one heck of a great WreslteMania. I still give it a 9 for delivering at least 3 classic matches and a few decent ones on top of that.
A classic Summer Slam of a golen era of wrestling. It is a joy to watch with all the colorful and entertaining wrestlers, even if the wrestling itself does not always live up to standarts.
First we had a fairly decent tag team match between Legion of Doom and Money INC
Nailz vs Virgil sort of happened.
Shawn Michaels vs Rick Martel was good....well when they were wrestling anyway.
Ultimate Warrior vs Randy Savage was wonderful. It was a pure joy to watch these two legends in one ring.
Undertaker showed off his awesomeness vs Kamala
And last but not least by any means, we have on of The Greatest Summerslam main events and one of the reasons why I love this event so much. Bret Hart vs British Bulldog for the Intercontinental Championship. The storyline behind it was great, the wrestling was pure genious (it was Bret Hart after all), the match was suspensful, the crowd was on fire and the ending really sealed the deal on this match as one of the greatest matches in Summer Slam history. This match truly makes this PPV. While the Main Event was a classic, I still can't give this PPV a rank higher than 8, because most of the other matches did not really surprise me as much.
Elimination Chamber tries to break of the mediocre PPVs WWE has been putting out since WrestleMania and mostly succeds.
The tag team elimination match was a bit of a trainwreck but an amusing and fun trainwreck nonetheless. We also see New Day retain the title and good for them.
Then there is a fantastic match between Cena and Kevin Owens (Steen). Both wrestlers really brought their A game in a magnificent match. Kevin Owens even get to beat Cena, which does not happen way too often. Match of the night for sure.
Neville vs Bo Dallas sucked is all I have to say.
The second elimination chamber match was really slow and awkward. Not entirely awful but certinly with a bunch of problems....one of them being Ryback winning the intercontinental title.
Dean Ambrose vs Seth Rollins bored me to death. Honestly...the match was barely watchable. I was this close to just turining it off and calling it a day.
Basicly this PPV proveds a few decent matches, a one fantastic match and a couple sucky ones. I still had a great time. I give it a solid 7 for Cena vs Owens and a few other entertaining matches.
After an awesome WrestleMania WWE set out on a streak of ''Meh'' PPVs starting with Extreme Rules 2015.
First there was Neville wrestling Wade Barret for a thousandth time in a who cares match.
Then there was a street fight between Dean Ambrose and Luke Harper, most of which happened off screen which is a shame because if Dean Ambrose is good at something then it is the no disqualification matches of all kinds. Dissapointing is what it is.
Dolph Ziggler vs Sheamus in Kiss my buttcheeks match. It was nothing special. The ending made me sigh after thinking that I will have to continue watching this feud for another month.
The New Day got the titles from Cesaro and Tyson Kidd in another great Tag Team Match. I do love Cesaro and Kidd and I hated to see them lose the title, but the New Day proved themesleves to be a very entertaining act in the future so all is forgiven.
Cena continues to punish Rusev for beating him that one time at Fastlane in an OK match.
Roman Reigns and Big Show deliver a huge surpirse by giving us the best match of the night. A thing that almost nobody expected.
Seth Rollins vs Randy Orton bored me to no end, which is a shame because it was a main event after all.
All in all some good matches to be seen, but also quite a few mediocre and uninteresting ones too. I do feel comfortable giving it a 6 for being just an above average PPV.
Despite stories leading up to it being pretty uninteresting, the event itself was actually really really good.
After Cesaro and Kidd got the titles the Tag Team division got much better and it shows in this Mania's match. It was energetic, gripping and had me on the edge of my seat. Every team did a great job in here.
Andre the Giant memorial battle royal got me a bit dissapointed, as I wanted to see Sandow emerge victorious but instead got Big Show. I still had moderate fun with this match, especially the last minutes of it.
The intercontinental ladder match also provided some good times with my boy Daniel Bryan deservingly winning the title.
Randy Orton and Seth Rollins had a solid one on one match with a memorable RKO that will be remembered as one of Randy's best.
Triple H vs Sting caused some mixed reactions between the fans and I still think that Triple H winning resulted in nothing interesting and seemed like another of these moments when Triple H buried wrestlers just to look cool. Still it was nice to see nWo and DX at the same ring at the same time.
John Cena finaly defeated Rusev and got the title in a farily entertaining match. Cena's future US title reign will give us some of the best wrestling matches in months to come.
I did not really dig Undertaker vs Bray Wyatt too much to tell the truth. The match seemed rather trivial to me.
And of course who could forget the amazing ending of Seth Rollins finaly cashing in his Money in the Bank after such a long time. Plus we got to see my boy Brock Lesnar throw around Roman Reings like a ragdoll, so that's good.
All in all a great WrestleMania through and Through and a highly enjoyable PPV. I am comfortable giving it a solid 8.
This PPV is bad....really bad. As the matter of fact I still consider it to be among the worst PPVs ever. It was a long and boring smackdown episode. Just a filler PPV leading to Wrestlemania XXXI
There was an incredibly awkward and dissapointing match between Goldust and Stardust, a rather stale tag team match of team authority vs Ziggler, Rowan and Ryback and a stupid match between Wade Barret and Dean Ambrose which resulted in nothing and a drawn out, boring segment of Triple H challenging Sting.
There were a few positives, like Cesaro and Tyson Kidd winning the Tag Team titles from the Usos and a sort of decent main event with Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns, but sadly it was not even nearly enough to make it even a decent PPV. The fact that the crowd is dead most of the time doesn't help it too.
I can't really give this one more than a 3. A staight up bad PPV.
A mixed bag of a PPV. On one hand we have a royal rumble match, which was not just highly dissapointing, but also really boring. The thing was a drag to sit through. We also have an Usos vs Miz and Mizdow tag team match, that I did not really care about.
On the other hand we have a fantastic triple threat match between Seth Rolling, John Cena and Brock Lesnar. I'm not gonna lie, this match was actually the thing that completely sold me on Seth Rollins. The match is easily "Match of the year" contender.
Basicly despite a quite bad royal rumble match, there is still fun to be had with this PPV. I do think it deserves a 6 out of ten just for the triple thread match alone.
Buddy Cop genre at it's finest.
A beautiful, touching and personal story of an underdog. An all time classic.
One of the most beautiful and breathtaking movies of all time, with one of the greatest movie soundtracks of all time.
One of the most thought provoking, deep and gripping movies I have ever watched. My all time favourite movie.
The movie about a bad guy, who at the end wasn't bad enough.
I am a huge fan of both graphic novel and this movie. They are both unique, funny and visiualy pleasing. Scott Pilgrim VS the World may just be one of my most rewathed movies.
The show is just plain wonderful. Magnificent character designs, catchy and touching songs, funny humor (at least by my standarts) and the characterisations, my God the characterisations! This series is a gem, pun intended.
