    Just finished watching the first two, and I have to say that I'm more than just a little impressed You weren't kidding about the two best chase sequences, especially the second one in Moscow. The filming methods, camera angles, even the actors and the way they responded to each other was conveyed extremely well! I've yet to see the third one but I did have the feeling from the beginning that Landy would be an ally to Bourne because she's never struck me as the vengeful type, but someone who likes to have answers, just like Bourne. The exchange between him and Neski's daughter was really heavy too. I have to agree with you about Joan Allen as well, she's been really good in the second movie. On to the third now

    From what I gather, CM Punk wants to stay in the WWE. He likes wrestling in front of the large crowds and he likes [most] of his co-workers. He also dislikes TNA and getting re-accumulated money-wise to the Independent circuit would be pretty tough. The main problem is not because he's being buried, since his contract status is the reason it's happening in the first place, but because the WWE wants the rights to his name. Ever since the Montreal Screwjob and the time Alundra Blaze dumped the WWF Women's Title into a trashcan on WCW Nitro, McMahon refuses to push possible departing workers. While I don't think that method will encourage guys to re-sign, most understand. Anyway, Punk obviously doesn't want that. Punk is a much better businessman than the WWE gives him credit for and there also the possibility of wrestling post-WWE even if he re-signs. If I were the WWE, I would suck it up remove it from the contract. They let Del Rio keep his naming rights, is Punk less important? Of course not.

    Letting Punk walk due to that would piss me off something major. He's the perfect performer. He doesn't have to yell or scream and be over the top to get a reaction from the crowd like Cena and he doesn't have to do. . .whatever the hell Orton does to get a reaction.

    I'd imagine Sin Cara's botches are due to the schedule. Mid-card WWE performers are on the road about 300 days out of the year due to un-aired house shows and autograph signing events. That's why most finishers in the WWE aren't as impressive looking compared to Indy promotions, the work schedule leaves more of a chance a botch that could cause a major injury. Sin Cara, being a high-energy flyer, would probably take more of a beating than a technical ground guy like Bryan or Rhodes, so fatigue would be an issue more-so for him. It's why the WWE bailed on the Cruiserweight Division. Chavo getting that major concussion from Kidman's SS Press was the last straw. Hopefully, SC can adjust as he gets used to the schedule.

    I think that Riley has already made his face turn, he gotten quite the pop the last two weeks for putting his foot up Miz' ass two weeks in a row. Now all they to do is move him to SD were he belongs. This could go down as one of the pointless drafts in history if he stays on RAW after that entire troll session with Cena.

    Yeah, sadly the Diva's Division is nothing but eye candy. My anger with the Women's division reached it's peak when an interview with Tough Enough contestant and reigning Miss USA Rima Fakih popped up on another forum I frequent:
    Quote:
    Jeffrey Harris: How did you get the chance to be on the show? Was it previous appearance and association with WWE when you crowned Sheamus King of the Ring?

    Rima Fakih: Before that, they were at a pageant. Sometimes there are scouters trying to reach out to find divas or something like that. And I saw from far way, that's the WWE logo. So I was like "Why do they have a WWE logo?" So I ran up to them. And at the time, they were coming out with applications for people who want to do Tough Enough. But when I expressed interest and told my organization; they got me to host a few events and I had already entered to be one of the contestants on Tough Enough. So like everyone else, I had to go in and audition. And the producers and the people doing the show when they heard Miss USA, they were like, "What?!" And they warned me when I got there, "You're going to be picked on. You sure you want to do this?" Like nobody thought I could do it, and that made me want to do it more.
    Source. That's just a slap in the face, there are plenty of pretty wrestlers that have been in the business for years. As much as I love her, I blame Trish Stratus. She was a model brought in replace Debra and Terri Runnels as eye candy, but managed to care enough to put in the effort and make herself a credible wrestler. Vince saw that and thought he could do that with every model they brought in and tried to cut the "middle man" out in wrestling experience. It worked with Michelle McCool, but she was a collegiate volleyball standout at a top tier university, so she already had athletic ability. Kelly Kelly hasn't improved a bit in 4 four years. I wonder why Gail Kim came back, it must have been the money. . .

    There's a small hope in me that R-Truth could beat Cena at Capital Punishment. I know the WWE has made bone-headed moves, but even they have to realize that the top faces holding the titles at the same time is not good, right? Right?

    I hear that Shelton Benjamin has been doing some dark matches lately, it would good to see him back.

    Sorry for the long VM.

    I looks likes the WWE is turning Christian heel, which I think is a good move for him. He was getting some major heat after hitting Orton with the belt. It's been a while since he's been heel in the WWE and most of it was spent as a comedic heel with Edge and as Captain Charisma, but will keep him relevant in the title picture more-so than following Orton around as the #2 face. The problem presented will be that Smackdown will be even more top loaded with heels. The top faces are Randy Orton, Sin Cara, Daniel Bryan, & Ezekiel Jackson. Great Khali was just turned a week ago. The heel side is loaded now with Khali joining (possibly) Christian, Mark Henry, Sheamus, Jinder Mahal, the Corre, Cody Rhodes, DiBiase etc. Actually, the word I'm looking for is "overloaded".

    I like Daniel Bryan and he could hopefully be a title contender if Vince likes him enough, but right now he is feuding with Rhodes. Sin Cara is exciting but I have a feeling that the WWE would be hesitant to push him due to the amount of botches on his part. Ezekiel Jackson has the size, but his mic skills are yet to be determined and his skill set is pretty limited (not that has stopped the WWE before). Maybe the WWE will remember that Alex Riley was drafted to Smackdown and he'll move when his feud with Miz is over. They also should have moved Bourne to Smackdown when they had the chance, he would have more room for growth. I have a feeling that WWE will give Mark Henry a title run for his loyalty towards the company for the last 15 years like Kane.

    The Money in the Bank PPV is in a month and a half, so I expect one of these guys to win.

    All the titles other than top-tiers titles are pretty irrelevant nowadays. I remember when the Light Heavyweight and European titles were still around had more meaningful storylines between D-Lo Brown, Jeff Jarrett, Chris Jericho, Val Venus, Test, and Rikishi than the IC and US titles of today. When was the last time Kofi had a meaningful feud for the US title? It just changes hands like whatever and no one really cares anymore. Remember the Hardcore title? The 24/7 rule with Crash Holly was hilarious.

    Sadly, Vince McMahon will probably look at Kharma's pregnancy as another reason to keep the Divas Division down. She had made the the division interesting for the first time since the angle where Mickie James was obsessed with Trish Stratus six years ago. Look at the lackluster 2-minutes matches presented to the TV shows while the real wrestlers (Beth Phoenix, Gail Kim, Melina) are relegated to house shows and WWE Superstars and Nattie is stuck as a manager and getting beat by the Bella twins. And now McCool is on sabbactical.

    At least R-Truth is getting a title shot. He is probably the most interesting thing going on in the WWE other than Tough Enough. That, and whether Punk will stay or not.

    I hear you. Any anime show in particular you want to recommend? I'm totally open to watching older anime. Some of my favorites are pre-2000.

    And yeah, I'm disappointed in Kanade's total domination. There were more noteworthy and deserving female characters, I felt.

    Disappointing ugh[then again by the results last round everywhere except Russia disappoints me especially Africa ]. At least I know Kanade won't be in japan saimoe, or best moe this year

    Though 2011 anime winter[aside from Madoka and Wandering Son which were great] was generally meh to really disappointing [dragon crisis, IS, and Yumekui Merry especially], though Spring is considerably better in number of good to great shows I quite enjoying this season's variety of good shows, but summer looks to be on par with winter[only 3~4 shows look to something to watch for me].

    Oh doing a panel at anime con, good luck I hope you don't get out shown by some in the crowd on knowledge like I've seen before . And feel free to give me a link to it.

    I've watched all of those, except Rose of Versailles. You have a lot of older series listed there. Perhaps the newer style of anime just doesn't interest you as much. But 0's, really? Isn't that just a little bit too harsh? You don't seem to be in too high of spirits atm, has ISML finally consumed your soul?

    From someone who was ISML staff last year, I can say China and Taiwan alone were at times 60% of the voters. I don't know where it is this year since I ragequit the staff.

    Really? Kaiji S1 was one of my favorite anime of the season (gave it a 9), but imo, Kaiji S2 is working to be one of the few 10's I've ever given. I explained why in my post here...if you're interested. It's at the bottom.

    I'll be looking forward to it, then.

    Hey. I stepped down from the WA club, but that's because I'm graduating in like 2 months time.

    That's a shame because to me 2011 seems like the best year since 2007 for me. Last year for example was absolutely horrid. This year, we had Madoka Magica, Wandering son which I thoroughly enjoyed and this season we have Steins;Gate, Tiger and Bunny, Anohana and Hanaksu Iroha which are all pretty decent. Next season Natsume Yuujinchou 3rd season and Bunny Drop is coming out so looking forward to that. Not sure what series in 2010 other than the Bungaku Shoujo and Eve no Jikan movies I enjoyed, which is why I consider it a horrid year.

    Retro anime huh. Unfortunately my eyes have trouble watching anything pre-2000 unless I either grew up with it or it's called Cowboy Bebop/Outlaw Star or something sci-fi. Guess I'm spoilt by today's animation standards.

    Glad your club is going well in Adelaide.
