Tournament of Hotties: Cosplayers- Round 1, Part 2

Welcome back to the Tournament of Hotties, where some of the most, talented, creative, and hottest women of all time will battle it out to see who is the hottest! Check out part 1 here.

Now let’s see what other hotties we can find.

Kristen Hughey

Vs

Yaya Han

Let’s start with the beautiful blond bombshell, Kristen. She seems to be more into modeling than cosplaying, but there’s plenty of both to go around.

As you may have noticed, this beautiful babe’s body happens to fall under the category of perfection. Incredibly sexy curves, big boobs, perfect, round and firm butt. Her only downside is that her face isn’t all that great looking. It’s not bad at all. In fact, she’s beautiful. But it’s not anything head turning, but hey, her body is more than capable of doing that.

Next up is the gorgeous Yaya Han. Kristen has put up tough competition with her flawless body. Does Ms. Han have what it takes to stand against her?

Wow. Dang…what a beautiful, gorgeous, sexy woman.

Another flawless figure here, who also happens to be well endowed in the chest and glute areas.

So which of these two gorgeous women is hotter? The answer is pretty clear.

Yaya has a much more beautiful face than Kristen. But Kristen has a much better body, somehow. She is far more shapely, curvy, toned, however you want to look at it, Kristen’s body is far superior.

As far as boob sizes, they seem to match pretty well, both of them falling into the “big as heck” category. Yaya’s may be bigger. Both of them have incredible looking butts, though Yaya doesn’t seem too fond of showing hers too much. Due to her toned body, Kristen’s is likely more firm and shaped, and she has a lot of pictures evidencing this.

Both fully dressed in nothing revealing at all, Yaya is the winner, but being as scantily clad as we’ve seen them, the clear winner is Kristen.

Leanna Vamp

Vs

Joanie Brosas

Wouldn’t you know it? Two more ridiculously hot cosplayers. Aw shucks…

Let’s take a look at the sexy, dark, Leanna Vamp!

Woo mama! Her cosplay’s seem to be more focused on just being sexy as possible, rather than super accurate, which is how most people would prefer them, I imagine. This girl is just dripping out sexiness. Her face, hair, body, all beautiful. Her boobs, big, but she’s not much in the butt department it seems. This may be due to the fact that she is so skinny. Too skinny even. This makes her cup size much more impressive however. Her very thin body is well toned, which makes the too thin appearance forgivable, and very, very sexy. This woman is astounding to look at, no doubt.

But Joanie Brosas is no pushover. Returning for her second Tournament of Hotties, let’s take a look at her body.

This woman is astoundingly gorgeous. Her face is both adorable and beautiful. That long, sexy hair just takes my breath away. Her slender toned body and long legs are angelic. You just want to run your hands down all of her curves, and let’s be honest, all of her.

Her cosplays aren’t very impressive compared to most of the other women in this tournament, but her style is really to see just how little amount of clothing she can use to make a costume, so she typically leaves very little to the imagination. She seems to love underboob exposure, which is fine by me.

Speaking of her boobs, they are very tiny, and she doesn’t have much of a butt, either, but this seems to work for her, for it is proportionate with her very slim and long body.

So the hard question- which of these slender sex muffins is hotter?

Leanna’s body is thinner and more toned. The thinness actually hurts her, for she is too skinny.

Joanie is also very thin, but like the perfect amount. And while her body isn’t as toned as Leanna’s, it still is, almost to perfection, and the look compliments her wonderfully. Her curves are much more prominent, for Leanna is so skinny, she hardly has any. Again, Joanie’s perfect weight gives her the curves God intended her to have.

When it comes to face and hair, Joanie obliterates mercilessly. She is far too gorgeous. There is hardly any woman on Earth that is as pretty as her, I imagine.

Joanie seems to have just barely better butt cheeks, while Leanna destroys her in the boob section harder than Joanie beats her with her face.

 

This is a tough choice, but one woman outshines the other…

Tournament of Hotties: Cosplayers- Round 1, Part 1

Ahh Cosplayers…………………………….

Oh sorry, got a little dreamy there. When I first heard of cosplayers, I thought they were a bunch of absurd geeks that would go to comiccon dressed in a crappy costume of some super hero or video game character. Then I saw a few legit costumes people handmade, and I was blown away by their talent, and how they could actually bring a virtual character to life. And you can’t look at amazing cosplay without quickly stumbling upon the many women who dominate the online field of cosplaying. And I learned a few things very, very quickly…

These women are

1.) The hottest woman of all time…largely due to photo doctoring and tons and tons of makeup, naturally, but who cares…

2.) They are incredibly talented at what they do, making it harder to decide which you would rather look at, the intricate detail of their costumes, or every detail of their usually hugely exposed bodies.

3.) There talent and allure is so great, you find yourself wishing you could bang all your favorite video game and movie characters. Which is bizarre. Even the male characters…these women can turn someone as manly as Thor or someone, into the sexiest thing you have ever seen.

So at first I just found a couple girls, until I realized they are everywhere! Most of these women also do modeling, because if you’re that hot, why wouldn’t you, so we will see a lot of modeling shoots aside from their cosplay in the upcoming tournament.

So without further ado, let’s start what might be the steamiest tournament of all time!!!

Jordan Carver

Vs

Jennifer Van Damsel

Well I’m hooked right in just from that first picture of little red riding hood. So we will start with her…the fabulously busty Jordan Carver!

This woman isn’t your traditional cosplay. From what I gather, she is a model hailing from Germany, who does mostly themed, lewd photo shoots. As you are about to see, she has a flawless body, and bigger boobs than anyone I have ever known…okay, probably not, but they are massive nonetheless. And all her shoots focus around these watermelons. Now gaze upon them and try not to get too hypnotized!

So these are her “cosplays,” which as I said, are mostly just sexy photo shoots in some little get ups, and she gets slowly undressed throughout them.

Now I will give you a taste of her more basic modeling jobs…

So as you can tell, most pictures makes her boobs the center of attention, and part of me wonders if this is because they are trying to distract from her single flaw. Her face isn’t all that great looking. But any sane person would never or need to look above those marvelous flotation devices.

Next up is the beautiful Jennifer Van Damsel!

What a stunning woman! Her body is toned to perfection, her butt incredibly firm, and judging by some of her poses, she’s proud of it too. She too has a decent sized chest, but compared to Jordan, she looks flat as a steamrolled squirrel. But her face is very beautiful.

Decisions…decisions…Who in the world is hotter?

If judging solely on bust size, Jordan would probably win the whole tournament right now. But boobs aren’t everything. Jordan doesn’t seem to like to show off her butt. I have only ever seen one picture of it in a pair of jeans…that I can recall anyway…So while Jennifer falls flat in the boob department (heh), she wins in the butt aisle, as well as succeeding in have a more toned body. Like I said, it’s perfect, which is pretty amazing to say, considering how perfect Jordan’s body is. Jennifer has a more beautiful face too. Both of them have very lewd photos, so we get to so most of what they have to offer.

Sorry, Jordan…it was close…very close. But where as Jordan put all her eggs in her boobs, Jennifer offers everything to you, and every part of her is wonderful.

 

Stella Chu

Vs

Kate Sarkissian

Well it looks like we have another tough decision to make, which is both a fabulous and terrible thing…

Starting with Stella, the Asian beauty with a nice butt, judging from the first picture! Let’s investigate more into this claim, shall we?

This cosplayer is absolutely gorgeous. Her face is beautiful, her body perfect. She definitely has the smallest boobs out of the three contestants so far, but they are big enough. Her pictures show off her body well, and I can’t see a single downside to her.

So how does Kate stack up against her?

So it turns out this is an easy decision. Kate’s body is far better than Stella’s. Perfectly toned and curvy, big breasts, jaw dropping in everything she wears. She is also an incredibly talented cosplayer to boot! She’s just better in every category. Sorry Stella

My Top 10 Years In Gaming

Over the years I have created top 10 lists for my favorite games on most of the systems I own. Then I did a best of the best list, and a top 10 developer/publisher list. Now, I am going to take a look at all the games that made those lists release years, and see which years happened to produce my favorite games the most often, so I can find out my top 10 favorite years in gaming!

 

Okay, so as predicted, this one is like the development list, and there is a whole lot of ties, so that there is actually only 9 rankings. So every year that produced some of my favorite games will be honored in this list…at least for now!

#9

There are two years that tied for ninth, with one game from each year.

1989

1990

 

#8

Four years tied for the number eight spot with two games from each of these years.

#1

We don’t have a clear winner here. In fact, four years tie up for the number one spot!

2013

2011

2002

That’s all for now. Maybe one day this list will become more clear cut.

 

 

 

 

 

Rambo Series Ranked/Rambo: Last Blood Review

I never thought in my life that a new Rambo movie would come out. The third one released about a year before I was born, so for a very long time, I thought that was it. I remember always thinking, ‘I wish they would make five, so that they could be even with the Rocky series.’

In 2008, the impossible happened. A fourth one came out, along with it, the possibility of another sequel, but eventually it tapered off, Stallone basically saying he was too old for a fifth. And then one day, nearly 11 years after the fourth one came out, my brother informed me that he was indeed making the film, and showed me some set photos.

I was floored. It seems in less than a week, I will get my wish at long last. Five movies to match Rocky, even though thankfully that series has increased in number as well. But I am not  going to wait for a sixth one, for that just isn’t ever going to happen. I am satisfied completely with the fifth one. The trailer alone makes me confident this movie is going to be intense and incredible. I just watched it again, and it gave me chills

So to celebrate this monumental occasion, I will be ranking all the movies from my least favorite to my most favorite.

So away we go!!

 

#4 Rambo

rambo

This movie is incredibly moving and emotional, due to the fact that it very accurately portrays war in third world countries and the cruelty of humanity. Each weapons effects on human bodies is realistic and brutal, which really brings into light how horrible war is and why Rambo tries his best to get away from it.

While I find the movie to be utterly fantastic, it also has a bit of disappointing parts in it. I wasn’t thrilled that Rambo wasn’t doing pretty much everything on his own, despite the fact that I really like all the mercenaries he works with.

I also don’t like that there isn’t any cool stealth kill parts like they have in the first three. That is definitely missed.

The final thing that bugs me is that during the finale scene, Rambo just sits behind a machine gun mounted on a truck the whole time, which is cool, because he shreds up all kinds of stuff, but it is also boring in a way.

 

#3 Rambo III

rambo 3

This movie is a masterpiece. It’s got intense action throughout most of the movie, and even has Colonel Trautman doing a bit of fighting, which is something many people have wanted to see I’m sure. While Rambo does receive a bit of help in this one, it really just focuses on him, and actually the help hinders him at times.

Rambo faces his most vicious and largest enemies yet, fearlessly taking on an entire army that culminates into the best finale in the series. He drives a tank into a helicopter for God’s sake. This move is the epitome of 80’s action.

#2 Rambo: First Blood Part II

Rambo-First-Blood-Part-II-Soundtrack-2CD

If the third one is a masterpiece, this  is just a little bit more so. The action, the hate, the betrayal, the message… Everything about it is amazing. And when Rambo starts to fall for someone, she dies immediately, as if the movie is punishing itself for daring to be anything other than awesome. The “Murdock, I’m coming to get you,” scene is one of the most badass scenes in history.

#1 First Blood

rambo first blood

This one is just slightly more of a masterpiece than 2 & 3. The whole calm, sad Rambo being pushed to take on a whole town theme is amazing. How he takes down every cop in the woods, incredible. Showing off his survival skills in said woods and in the mine is fun to watch.

I really like that a lot of the movie is just music and not a whole lot of talking goes on. Trautman’s ridiculous warnings to Teasle really hype up Rambo’s deadly skills. Just every second of this film is either tense, action packed, or awesome in some shape or form.

 

As a whole, this series is one of the best out there, despite it’s ridiculously inconsistent titling. I could watch these every day, they simply blow me away like all the stuff Rambo blows up in his life. I am completely confident that the fifth will be able to stand among these four incredible films. I already like it better than the fourth one just from watching the trailers!

Last Blood Review

The movie is pretty darn incredible. I’m just going to go right out and say it. It shows Rambo in a new light, a brighter one, if you will. One where he is actually content with life, which is something we have never seen before. And then by the end of the movie, we have never seen him so angry. For now, he’s not fighting in someone else’s war. This time, it’s just personal…and it’s awesome.

The first 2/3 of the movie is more like a super violent Taken, and then the last third is just everything you love about Rambo to the extreme. The ending is mind blowing. If you like hardcore action, then this will float your boat, I’m sure. If you are someone who doesn’t like unnecessary violence, well then don’t watch this.

The music is great as well. They take all the themes from the other movies and adjust them to the mood of the scenes going on, so that it actually reminded me a lot of the Rocky series, and actually succeeds in enhancing the emotions being felt or the themes being represented in each scene.

Interestingly enough, being as Rambo is a quiet, hardly talking maniac of death and destruction, this is probably one of Stallone’s best performances. The emotion he gives off, the hate, the rage, the hurt…all excellent. You can practically see an aura of rage floating around him like he is a Super Saiyan by the end. Again, this really enhances the viewing.

Some parts of it are a little slow, but that’s because they are plot building, and I was itching to see Rambo go nuts. And he does. Believe me. It’s worth the wait.

They never describe how Rambo is actually related to the girl who refers to him as “Uncle John,” nor how she is related to the other woman who lives with them. This isn’t really a big deal, but the viewer is pretty much left to assume a whole lot about them, but overall, it’s not really important. The movie makes this clear. All you need to know is the young girl, Gabriella, is like a daughter to Rambo. And this Gabriella has the most beautiful, big brown eyes that kind of make your heart melt. This is fortunate, because she does a lot of crying, and those eyes just make it so much sadder, on top of her being adorable and crying is something you never want to see her do.

As for ranking this…I don’t know…I really don’t. It’s definitely better than 4, but I can’t really say where it falls among the first 3. Sometimes it’s my favorite, sometimes I like it less than 3 or equally as 3. I would just consider it a masterpiece like the first 3.

Watching this made me realize how different all 5 films are. Each brings your attention to a different real world problem, and never really holds your hand doing it. They never hold back from the violence that exists in this world, showing you the cruelty of humanity, something Rambo tries to separate from himself and protect others from. This is a constant theme in the entire series, Last Blood being no exception. And with the advancements in technology, the fourth and fifth film are especially effective in showing how destructive people and weapons can be.

So what I have learned is that the Rambo series doesn’t need to be ranked. They are all so entertaining, educate you in a brutal way, and have an interesting, tortured soul he turns into a volcano of fury and then murders everyone in his way as the lead role. And a credit to this film, there is a slight 80’s action movie feel to this film at times, which is a nice throw back to Rambo’s roots.

Bottom line, if you love Rambo, you are going to love this. If you like action movies, you will like this. If you are expecting a movie with a deep twisting plot, involved, fleshed out characters, and a deep sense of meaning that will leave you feeling like a better person…then you clearly have never seen a Rambo movie before. These films have always been about awareness of global issues and intense action entertainment. And this one delivers on that.

 

P.S.

It’s better the second viewing.

 

 

 

Top 10 Worst Eminem Songs

In my opinion, Eminem is by far the greatest rapper to ever live. I’m just going to say that flat out. If you disagree with that, okay. Makes no difference to me.

But nobody is perfect. While 99% of Eminem’s songs are good to incredible, he has slipped up a few times over the years. So I thought it would be fun to compile a top 10 list putting a spot light on his 10 worst songs (in my opinion).

 

-Okay, it was actually hard to find 10 bad songs, so I have to stretch it a little bit.

#10

“On Fire”- Recovery, 2010

This song isn’t bad at all. I actually like it. I just don’t really like the chorus that much, and compared to the rest of Recovery, this song jumps out as the worse by far.

#9

“Jimmy Crack Corn”- The Re-Up, 2006

Again, this isn’t a bad song whatsoever, I just don’t love the rhythm he raps with in the first verse, even though it is reminiscent of the actual Jimmy Crack Corn song. And it has 50 Cent on it, and I absolutely hate him, so that doesn’t help. The chorus is a tad annoying too, but nothing that really hurts the song.

#8

“Yellow Brick Road”- Encore, 2004

Yet again, this isn’t a bad song. It’s just kind of boring. He tells a story about his origins at a slow pace with an unexciting beat under it. This is all fine, it’s not one of his best, and again, it was hard to find actual bad songs.

#7

“Maxine”- Infinite, 1996

I expect you’re tired of hearing this, but this is not a bad song either. The issue is that half the song is a phone call with Maxine, who is a prostitute basically, and you can barely hear anything she says. And I guess just rapping about a whore isn’t great source material to me. But yeah, it’s still a decent song.

#6

“Ass Like That”- Encore, 2004

This song isn’t horrible either, it’s just okay. And weird. It has some indian beat, and he raps with a slight indian accent or something. The lyrics are kind of all over the place as well.

#5

“Untouchable”- Revival, 2017

This song borders on being bad. It just has not a lot going for it. I don’t really like the beat, the chorus is maybe okay. But the main body just sounds messy at times, especially at the end of the song. It’s also weird that he talks in the perspective of a black guy, which makes it difficult to take the song seriously.

#4

“Nice Guy”- Kamikaze, 2018

I don’t know what he was thinking with this song. The song features Jessie Reyez more than Eminem, and she has the worst voice I’ve ever heard. It is scratching on a chalk board in human form. She is a terrible person and should never sing again.

But anywho, it’s a very short song, and half of it seems to be intentionally weird and bad, which makes it almost forgivable. It’s pretty obvious they didn’t take the song seriously or put a whole lot of effort into. So basically, they should have just cut it, cuz intentionally bad is still bad.

 

 

#3

“Mosh”- Encore, 2004

This has a slow, marching beat to it. So like Yellow Brick Road, this is a very boring song. And Em gets all political, complaining about war and whatever, which doesn’t really suit him. On top of that, the song isn’t catchy at all, there isn’t any great rhymes. It’s just…ugh…

These next two…these are really the only two songs I can truly say are absolute terrible.

#2

“Rain Man”- Encore, 2004

What was he thinking with this one? This song is just stupid. It’s like he wrote half a song, went into the booth and just muttered a bunch of stuff in between to make a full song. It’s just 5 minutes of bad. But it does have one of his most offensive lines of all time in it, which is both hilarious and really mean.

#1

“Big Weenie”- Encore, 2004

This song makes Rain Man look good. That’s how bad it is. I have no idea what he was trying to accomplish with this one. It has no purpose, there is no message. He just says random things,  the rhymes aren’t great, the beat is slow and boring. There’s nothing redeeming about this song at all.

There you have it. I probably would have been better off doing a top 5 worst songs, since I like most of the ones on this list, but oh well. 5-10 bad songs over a 20+ year career is a pretty good record, I’d say.

 

 

My Top 10 Developers/Publishers

Over the past few years I have made top 10 lists for my favorite games on most of the consoles I own. I have recently ranked the #1 games from each list against each other to decided the best of the best.

But now it is time to pick the 10 publishers/developers that most often appeared in those top 10 lists, #1 being the company that most often made it.

I can tell you my top three developers by personal opinion right now, but I won’t. I am curious to see if those three make the list and in what position.

So here we go, the 10 most recurring companies that made games that made my top 10 lists! Okay…So there was a LOT of ties, so it turns out every developer/publisher that has made the games in my top 10 lists will make it here, so think of this as more a celebration to all these companies that have brought us such wonderful games! I thank you all!

I always update these lists if new games make the top 10’s, which really doesn’t happen often, but when it does, I will update this list as well, which has the potential to change this entire thing drastically. Who knows what the future will hold? If this list does change, that just means I have discovered some truly incredible new games!!

Sylvester Stallone- I Thank You For A Lifetime of Entertainment

This guy. This crazy action star. This crazy not action star as well. He is an amazing writer, fairly decent actor, and master of the entertainment biz.

I grew up in the 90’s, and what I watched was the usual Nickelodeon shows, Hercules and Xena, and FRIGGIN AWESOME 80’s ACTION MOVIES!!!!!

Stallone, Schwarzenegger (thank god that’s in spell check, cuz didn’t know how to begin spelling that), Steven Seagal, Mel Gibson, whatever other movies that involved machine guns that never ran out of ammo and enormous explosions. Though oddly, I’ve never seen a single Die Hard movie.

But it was the Stallone movies that were always my favorite. Demolition Man, The Specialist, Tango & Cash, Cobra. It didn’t matter what, I just love them. But above all, I absolutely love the Rambo series. I still consider them some of the best action movies ever made. Seeing the fourth one opening night was the best movie-going experience I have ever been to. The sold out theater was so full of energy, some of the crowd in red bandanas, everyone in love with the same series as myself. We cheered at the awesome parts, shouted quotes from the older movies; it was like going to a convention all about Rambo.

Then, when I thought his career was over, he brings us a truly incredible trilogy. I am of course talking about the Expendables. Again, these are some of the best action movies out there…all three of them. And what’s more, he gave us something every 80’s and 90’s kid always hoped for. A movie with Stallone and Arnold (not trying to spell his last name again) kicking butt side by side. But he didn’t stop there. He brought in all these action stars from over several decades and actually did a great job balancing screen time for them all. Stallone and Jason Statham are the main characters, so they get the most obviously, but there is plenty of other time for everyone else.

Did you ever think you would see Jet Li fight Dolph Lundgren? How about Steve Austin beat the hell out of Stallone? This is a dream come true, and all done in the style of 80’s action with modern cinematics.

But there is one franchise that sits above all Stallone’s feats. You know I am talking about the Rocky movies. The film that made Stallone world renowned. This movie and it’s five sequels are just phenomenal. I actually have a post where I rank them all.

They are my favorite films of all time. And having him in the Creed movies is just as wonderful, again all these years later, he is still giving us the characters we grew up with, that we love. They age as we age, making it easier to connect with them. We get to watch them deal with struggles throughout these characters lives. We grow and learn with them. It’s just a fascinating experience.

And Stallone, on the downhill slope to 80, is doing it to us again. I am of course talking about Rambo 5, or rather Rambo: Last Blood. When my brother told me that he was making this, I went through the roof. Then the trailer came out, and I went through the clouds. Right away, I gasped, “This looks like it was going to be the best one.” The second trailer solidified that feeling.

I of course will reserve judgement until I see the movie, but damn. What a way to go out. Though I assume Stallone will give us more, and maybe even a Rambo 6 when he gets bored in his late 80’s.

It scares me to say that. If you are like me, you worry about when actors you love get old. I have now lived through this with all my favorite action heroes now senior citizens. But I can’t imagine a world without Sylvester Stallone in it. The movies he comes with out with are always my cup of tea. When he dies, it will be like losing a family member. I know that sounds weird, but it’s the truth. I felt the same way when Han Solo died. I was upset over that for like three days! Stallone will take me a lot longer to get over, because we will lose the actor himself, Barney Ross, Rocky Balboa, and John Rambo. All of them, dead. I have never met the actor and it’s pretty safe to say I never will, but all the characters he’s played, I feel like I know so well. It is going to be a devastating time.

But anyway, that’s kind of depressing talk, so for now, I am going to be anxiously waiting for Last Blood to come out on Sep. 20.

But I just want to say thank you Sylvester Stallone. My life would literally not be the same without you in it.

What Are You Supposed To Say When A Girl Asks You If She’s Pretty?

Hey gentleman, have you ever been asked by a girl/woman if you think they are pretty or if they have gotten less pretty or fat or something?

If you have, and you were foolish enough to answer, then you know there is no right answer. You will always come out a horrible person after this question.

I’m not talking about girls asking you if you think they’re pretty in a flirtatious way, and from someone interested in dating you. I’m talking about friends of yours who just ask for their own self worth or however you want to phrase it.

In high school, I learned the consequences of answering these questions. I remember a time one of my best friend’s girlfriend, who I was close friends with, asked me if I thought she was pretty, (or some other version of attractive) and I, being a naturally honest person, said that yes she was. I probably would have said yes as to not hurt her feelings, but the fact was she was indeed a beautiful girl, so I said so.

And her response was that I was a creep and that she was my friends girlfriend and I shouldn’t be looking at her like that.

Okay…my bad…?????

This same girl, a few months later, asked how I thought she looked in an outfit she had worn that day. And I stupidly told her she looked hot, thinking that’s what she wanted to hear, and because frankly, she looked hot in everything. Also, I was half joking, because as I said, we were close friends, and I thought I could get away with saying this.

The result was her backing away from me, a disgusted look on her face and told me I’m not supposed to say that and that she was going to tell her boyfriend…

Okay, sorry…

Another girl asked me later on if I found her attractive. She wasn’t unattractive, but nothing head turning, and learning that saying yes is a bad idea, I said “no.” I got yelled at and I don’t think I ever talked to that person again.

Sheesh…

Another time, my sophomore year, I was in a class with my friends girlfriend, the same one who I talked about first in this post. She introduced me to a friend of hers, female, and the three of us became good friends throughout the year.

I was in between girlfriends and just had enough of women for the time being. These two were hounding on me on who I thought was hot and who I wanted to go out with, and the fact was, I didn’t want to date anyone and didn’t care who was hot or not, and that’s exactly what I told them. And of course, they both asked if I thought either of them was hot. Both of these girls were attractive, like 8/10’s, but I just shrugged my shoulders and said I didn’t care.

Well, they both got mad at me for not telling them I thought they were hot. They bickered with each other and argued with me, but I just sat there, not saying anything and only half listening. Eventually, they reconciled by saying, “Well at least he didn’t say we were ugly,” and everything was fine after that.

Effing shoot me…

Years later, when I was in my early 20’s I think, a girl I had worked with for years was sitting alone in the break room when I walked in for my lunch. We were friends, but had sort of drifted apart at this point.

Now, first a tad of background. This woman used to be absolutely gorgeous, a 10/10 if you will. We were very flirtatious when we were younger, but she always would shut me down, saying I was too young for her (she is four years older), but then a week later it would start all over again.

Eventually, as she moved into her mid 20’s, she let herself go and gained a lot of weight and just looked a mess usually. So that day, when I walked into the break room, she asked me if I thought she had gotten as fat as this other girl who worked there, who was not attractive at all.

Her exact words were along the lines of “I know I’ve gotten fat, but I don’t think I’m that fat, do you?”

I looked at her for a second and said, “I wouldn’t know anything about that and I’m not dumb enough to answer that question.”

I had wised up, you see? Or so I thought…

She got mad at me for not answering the question. She insisted that I tell her the truth, but I refused. She asked me some more questions about her and the other girl. I can’t remember what exactly, but it was something along the lines of, “well who is better looking,” and “who has the better…” I did not answer any of these questions. We hadn’t flirted in years at this point, so maybe she was trying to bring up something as to why that wasn’t so anymore, despite her having a boyfriend and I think I was engaged at the time, so duh…why would we be flirting?

Anyway, I didn’t answer any of her questions, and went to have my lunch elsewhere. She got mad, and I think that may have been the last or one of the last times I ever talked to her.

WTF!?!?!?!?

There is no winning with women! What are you supposed to do? What are you supposed to say? It’s ridiculous. This is a battle you will not win.

Does anyone else have similar experiences out there? Or ladies, what do you truly want to hear?

 

 

Robin Hood (2018) How Is This Considered A Bad Movie?

The wife and I just watched this movie, which is one I’ve been dying to see ever since I saw a trailer for it last year. But it was only in theaters for a few weeks and we missed it. Turns out, it’s short ride in theaters was because it bombed in the box office. This alone confuses me. If it’s pulled from theaters, how’s it going to ever make money?

Anyway, I bought the bluray, and it turned out to be better than I could have hoped for! They even left it open for a sequel, but because it lost so much money, that got canned, which is super upsetting, because we were extremely excited for one.

But this movie just further imprints upon me how distant my views for all things media are compared to the rest of the larger world.

Movie critics gave this a next to zero score, and regular viewers didn’t give it much more.

I personally would give it a 9.5/10. But then, I’m just looking to be entertained, I don’t expect everything that 90% of the rest of the world is hoping/looking for.

I don’t care about reviews or what other people think…at all. But I’m tired of being shafted out of sequels because of box office numbers and bad critiques and all that. Terrible movies that do great in theaters are good movies and vice versa. Yes, I am aware we live in a business world and making money is truly all that matters, but come on!

Going back to Robin Hood, I just can’t imagine how anyone would watch this and come out saying, “Man, that sucked!” unless you don’t like action movies at all.

Which speaking of, the action is top notch. It has unique/incredibly awesome action scenes, doing some crazy stuff with bows and arrows that is just super fun to watch.

The style of the movie is pretty interesting as well. They made the scenery, costumes, attitudes, weaponry, personalities, and dialogue with the typical stuff you would expect from a time period for Robin Hood, but combined it with a lot of styles and workings from today, resulting in a truly fascinating world.

And on top of that, the characters are all done in the same fashion in a way. You have all the classic Robin Hood characters, tweaked just enough to be both familiar and fresh. And they are a lot of fun to watch, especially since the acting is so good from literally every actor/actress.

The story gets the same treatment. It is actually an origin movie of how he becomes Robin Hood, which to my knowledge is a new one. And in a world filled with origin movies (I’m talking about you, Marvel) this one is by far the best. Yes, it’s not super hero related, but the premise is the same. And most of Marvels origin movies are crap to okay at best. I know they are not really comparable movies on a lot of levels, but as for action movies, Robin Hood blows away most in it’s genre.

So I think Robin Hood is one of the best movies ever made to be honest, and my wife thinks it might be her favorite movie of all time.

So I’m just really curious, what the heck do people look for in movies that this gem would be considered bad?

Side note: Apparently there is a King Arthur movie similar to this that got just as bad reviews. I very much want to check out this movie as well!
