We hit up 2 cities that have the worst rating on Zillow we’ve ever seen. First up some psychic shenanigans cause one girl to die, another to cough up her own guts, and for the gates of hell to be opened in City Of The Living Dead. Then infected zombie types run out of a helicopter and start drinking people’s blood in Nightmare City. We also talk about the Ghoulies Franchise, Jeff Goldblum, and have a big spoiler filled discussion about Spider-Man: Far From Home at the end of the show.
This week Noah and Doug take a look at a few more prison movies. First up we see how many eggs we can eat in Cool Hand Luke. After that we’re stuck in Midnight Express. Also we chat about eating healthy, The Twilight Zone, The Night Eats The World, and Deep Star Six.
Everyone has that one piece that is missing from their personal collection. You might have seen it once or twice in the wild or maybe it’s overpriced… For me that was the Electronic WCW Monday Nitro Arena from ToyBiz.
I got this wrestling ring for Christmas back in 2001, if I recall correctly. I remember using it as my main ring for my BCA figs. I just loved the whole look to the stage and if you had a Sting figure you could lower him in the ring.
Like some things from childhood they just disappear, sold at an yard sale, or thrown away. I have no idea what happened to my original ring.
When I started to seriously collect some of my favorite childhood wrestling merch the WCW Monday Nitro Arena was on the top of my list. And when I came searching the price everyone wanted for a complete in box was around $300-$400 and an incomplete or loose ring juggled in price from $100-$150 those online prices was to pricy for me and I didn’t want to hunt around trying to complete it.
While going through my saved searches on eBay and buying WWF Hasbro figs I came across a listing for the Nitro Arena – complete in box for under $200 and I couldn’t pass this opportunity up to have this ring in my collection.
Three weeks later… Thanks to the doofus taking his time shipping it out, I can now put this white whale to rest.
As the listing said, it’s complete in box. The box itself has minor damage but I’m fine with that and it did come with every piece. I’m so happy to have this wrestling ring in my collection, it brings back so many fun memories when I used to play with my figs in the living room.
With all that being said, checkout my unboxing…
After an unforeseen family emergency the show this week was almost canceled, but Doug grabs an old familiar friend to site down and talk about two Jim Jarmusch films. First up is the newly released zombie film The Dead Don’t Die. After that we check out what vampires do in Only Lovers Left Alive.
This week Noah is out so we are joined again by indie horror filmmaker superstar Tony Wash as we talk about some messed up movies about horror that comes out of TVs. First up we get an alien visitor in Terrorvision. After that zombies chase us down in The Video Dead. After that we talk about Brightburn, Black Mirror, and tell stories about Charles Band. All this and more. To find out more about the movies Tony Wash is involved with visit scotchworthy.com.
With the summer headed our way we decided to do an episode about those heroes we call Ice Cream Men. But what happens if their intentions are evil? First up Clint Howard shows us how to hide eyeballs in ice cream with The Ice Cream Man. After that we head over to Masters Of Horror to find out what happens if you accidentally kill the ice cream man in We All Scream For Ice Cream. We also talk about Splash Too, Good Omens, Godzilla: King Of The Monsters, and clowns vs. mimes.
This week we decided giant animals was a subject that needed to be explored. What we didn’t know was that football players HATE giant animals. First up we look at some giant rabbits in Night Of The Lepus. Then we eat some weird stuff bubbling up out of the ground in Food Of The Gods. We also discuss the new Rambo trailer, Slasher, and Brightburn.
This week we look at some famous stories with a twist. First up is the King Of Cartoons in Blacula. After that Bernie Casey becomes Dr. Black, Mr. Hyde. We also talk about racism, Black Moon Rising, and John Wick Chapter 3.
A lot of this PPV was hit and miss for me. I loved the near perfect match between Cody and Dustin Rhodes, it was a bloody mess that reminded me of Austin-Hart from WrestleMania 13. Cody got the win but he had help by Brandi and a couple cheap shots to throw Dustin off his game.
The whole match was a emotional rollercoaster. Dustin hit Cody with Cody’s own finisher and having him kick out at two made the crowd go bananas. Earl Hebner was officiating said match and that kinda brought me out of the match at times. He still has that swinging arm when counting to three and he is up there in age and he seemed to be stumbling around too.
Hangman Page won the Casino Battle Royale and you talk about WWE type booking. Put over your own company guy that’s friends with bookers. Also, I’m not all that sad that PAC cancelled his match. I wanted MJF to win the battle royale, he’s the best on the mic and one heck of a worker. Put him against Jericho or Omega and said match would get five stars.
Young Buck and Lucha Bros. probably had match of the night outside of Cody-Dustin. The Bucks went over but Penta & Fenix never gave it. Sure it was a spot fest at times but I enjoyed every bit of the Bucks fighting from underneath.
Jericho-Omega was good, I liked this match better than their first in New Japan. This match felt like there was something to lose, where in New Japan it just a hardcore match seeing who can last the longest. Jericho won and he and Hangman Page will face off for the AEW World Championship in the future… But! the surprise from tonight came after the Jericho-Omega match when Jon Moxley came from the crowd and took out Jericho and a referee with a double arm DDT. He then had his sights on Omega, but Kenny fought back until they both wound up on the Double or Nothing stage where Moxley hit a double arm knocking him out.
This entire episode is Noah’s fault. All of it. First up we check out the horrible movie Death Bed. After that Joey Lawrence tries to save us from some sentient electricity in Pulse. After that we talk about What We Do In The Shadows, Small Town Crime, and Mutant.
This week we’re hanging out at the grocery store. First up we work overnights with Ted Raimi, Sam Raimi, and eventually Bruce Campbell in Intruder. Then we get stuck with a bunch of crazy people and monsters in The Mist. We also talk about Small Town Crime, the new Ted Bundy Movie, and the BIG difference in every adaptation of IT and the book.
Apparently in the 80s the only good place for teenagers to get laid was in closed department stores after hours. We take a look at two films that takes advantage of that and sends some slashers in to keep the kids company. First up we look at some blocked memories in The Initiation. After that we play some games in Hide And Go Shriek. Also we chat about Star Wars, Freddy’s Nightmares, and Friday The 13th.
Bryan and Doug sit down to chat about the newest box office juggernaut Avengers: Endgame! The review is very spoilery right off the bat so make sure you’ve watched it before listening.
This week we’re taking a stand against bullies. Kind of by bullying them back. First up the ghost of Bruce Lee helps us fight a Russian Van Damme in No Retreat No Surrender. Then we learn to Wax Off with Daniel in The Karate Kid. Also we talk about some kung fu movies, Death Wish 3, and give our spoiler free thoughts on Avengers Endgame.
Yes people, there will be spoilers. Duh!
After seeing Avengers: EndGame twice in one day I can say I’m ready for a third viewing. EndGame was filled with so much emotion. The death of Black Widow and Tony Stark… I knew someone was going to be sacrificed when Widow and Ronin went to retrieve Soul stone. But death aside, Captain America was the MVP of EndGame. Between his mirror match, being worthy, and squaring off with Thanos I can watch those scenes all day long. His ending and passing the shield to Sam was perfect. One expectation I was waiting on was seeing Pepper Potts suit up and become Rescue. I always enjoyed her in the comics when she put that suit of armor on.
The battle at the end when all the portals opened would have been a great opportunity for Wolverine to walk out and fight alongside the Avengers. One scene that hit me right in the feels was Thor speaking to his mother, if I had one more chance to speak to mine, I would… Oh! and overweight Thor, I’m down with that. Because I got myself a Thor body as well. Karen Gillan got a bigger part for starring in EndGame and I’m proud of her, she cut her teeth in Doctor Who and babyface Nebula is fine by me.
So, do you think Disney will rerelease all the MCU movies with a new edit and edit in all the time travel scenes into said films? They better be loaded with complete new extras or commentaries because I’m not buying these movies again.
Captain Marvel was good I’m glad she didn’t get much screen time. Opening and ending was about right for her. And with Brie Larson getting heat for her comments, might not be long before she’s dropped from the MCU… At one time it was rumored that Katherine Langford (13 Reasons Why) was going to have a role in EndGame, I was hyped for that news and thought she was going to be in it until I didn’t see her in the film. Looked it and come to find out it was a rumor.
Out of the whole MCU Civil War is my number one and EndGame came close to knocking it off. I love the airport scene in Civil War and the battle in EndGame rivals it, but I been waiting on Stark-Rogers to fight ever since I read Civil War years ago and that’s why it’s still holds up to me. Call it a emotional attachment, nostalgia, call it whatever you want. Woo! Nothing can touch that airport clash of heroes.
I been hearing people complaining about how there wasn’t a mid or end credits scene. The story is over people, this ten-eleven year story had a conclusion and there shouldn’t be a scene to setup something new. You’ll get your post credit scene in Spider-Man: Far From Home… maybe. Just enjoy the movie for what it is.
With all that being said! I enjoyed every minute of the movie and hope in the future I can see these characters again in a supporting role when it’s time for the New Avengers to take the spotlight… It all started with me sitting in a theater in 2008 watching Iron Man and ending it the same way I started, sitting in a theater. Massive.
This week we’re going to jail. Well technically a juvenile detention center. But we watch as some boys cause chaos in Scum. Then we hang with Sean Penn as we beat some people with some sodas in Bad Boys. After that we chat about The Raid, the new Pet Semetary (spoilers), and finally Golden Girls. Yes for real.
We’re having a few bad nights. First up is a trip to the mall in Night Of The Comet. After that we start talking about slugs in Night Of The Creeps but we end up talking about Night Of The Creeps, Monster Squad, and Slither. Also we chat about Michael Bay movies, the new Disney Streaming Service, Shazam, and Dark Side Of The Ring.
This week we’re taking a look at some crazy Asian movies. First we head to Japan and try to make sense out of Ichi The Killer. Then we hop over to South Korea and get kidnapped for 15 years as we experience Oldboy. After that we chat about US, Shazam, and talk about this season of the Walking Dead.
WrestleMania 35 is in the books and my last tweet said it all for me, “This years Mania was a whole lot better than last year.” Some matches didn’t last like I wanted them to, Joe-Mysterio I was looking forward to but it became a squash match and Joe won in minutes. The match was probably cut for time.
The main event was everything I was looking for between Lynch-Flair-Rousey. Sure the crucifix pin is questionable, guess I’ll have to wait until RAW or SmackDown to see what happens. Charlotte Flair told a great story during the match being the Queen and telling herself this is her WrestleMania. Rousey took some brutal bumps but she keep going doing her five moves of doom.
The Doctor of Thuganomics made his long awaited return and that to me stole the show up to that point. I knew someone was going to interrupt Elias but wasn’t expecting Cena.
So… Ryder and Hawkins defeated the Revival… Woo! Woo! Woo! So happy for those two. Also, Tony Nese defeated Buddy Murphy to become the new WWE Cruiserweight Champion.
AJ Styles and Randy Orton was my match of the night. I said this before and will say it again, AJ Styles hasn’t had a bad match since coming to the E. And he pulled a good match out of Orton.
Shane McMahon and The Miz was an insane match. Triple H and Batista had one hell of a fight. I enjoyed it. Oh! and the whole Fury Road entrance was the worst ever by Triple H. That CGI video package was bad.
Yes, the Divas of Doom (Beth Phoenix & Natalya) didn’t win the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships. I was really hoping they would because I’m a huge Beth Phoenix mark. But The IIconics won and I’m happy for them, they have been doing great work on the mic.
Seth Rollins defeated Lesnar with three curb stomps and a low blow. The match was quick in and out. Seth got the job done.
Kofi Kingston and Daniel Bryan had one hell of a match. There was a few times I thought Bryan was going to win but Kofi did it and it was awesome!
Kurt Angle lost to Baron Corbin. I knew Angle was going to do the right thing and let Corbin get the win. The match was just right for Angle.
Carmella, and Braun Strowman won their battle royal matches. The Usos won and kept their SD Tag Team Championships… Drew McIntyre lost to Roman Reigns, McIntyre should’ve won. And Finn Bálor defeated Bobby Lashley to become the new IC Champ. This match was one side and the Demon looked great.
Bret Hart (JAKKS Classic Superstars series one) For a while I stopped collecting figures, I still had my Bone Crunchers and a few Titan Tron figures but when I saw Bret Hart at Target I had to buy it. Because the Hitman is my favorite wrestler.
Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake (Hasbro series one blue card) This figure is so colorful and captures everything I think of when I picture Beefcake. Pink and black tights and having his right hand in a scissors pose. I don’t even mind his jumping action feature.
Greg Valentine (LJN Wrestling Superstars series two) LJN figures gets lot of love and hate because the poses the wrestlers were in. I had so much fun with Valentine between a punch to a close line, even a Japanese arm drag.
Kevin Nash (WCW Smash ‘N Slam ToyBiz) Probably the best looking Nash figure to that point. Black and red outfit, comes with a referee that’s wearing a watch, and Nash does the power bomb action motion.
Test (JAKKS Summer Slam ‘99 Fully Loaded 2) I’ve always been a Test fan and finding him out in the wild was awesome. He came with a push broom but it’s the little details that mattered to me like his shoulder tattoo, I’m glad it was added to the figure.
There you have it the class of 2019. It was hard picking some of the figures specially during the JAKKS BCA era, there was so many figures around that time… If you like what you just read visit Doiner.com for action figure reviews!
