Better In The Dark – Episode #160.5: The Many Shades of Heroism – Ant-Man, Edgar Wright, and the State of the Superhero Film

BITD 160 Point 5 Photo

Tom and Derrick’s look at Edgar Wright’s departure from Ant-Man becomes a freewheeling discussion of what Marvel is doing right, what DC is doing wrong, and whatever the hell Fox and Sony think they’re doing. Along the way, The Boys Outta Brooklyn review Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, curse Frank Miller, bless Mark Waid, and struggle to fill the plot holes in The Nolanverse! You know you wanna know why Derrick loves Brett Ratner, so get to clicking! (And don’t forget to follow us on Twitter at @BITDShow!)

Life During Wartime: Raw vs. Nitro 1996 (Week 1)

If you’ve ever taken even a cursory glance through the history of the WWE and pro wrestling in general, you’re probably aware of something which has become known as the Monday Night Wars. For those of you that don’t know, and can’t look it up on Wikipedia or anything like that, the Monday Night Wars was a period of time (I’d personally say 1995-2001, but it could be argued that tensions were pushed even earlier) when Vince McMahon’s World Wrestling Federation was in direct competition with World Championship Wrestling, which was owned by Ted Turner but operated by Eric Bischoff, while promotions like ECW and Smokey Mountain Wrestling went on in the background.

I’m never going to complain too hard about a movie with this many actors that I like doing the things I like to watch them do, but EXPENDABLES 3 is not a very good movie. As an experience, it’s fine, well worth the price of a matinee ticket, but as a movie, it’s not very good. It’s overstuffed with characters; the fun in an EXPENDABLES movie is seeing all of these famous actors together, but this is the third movie and the filmmakers still think they can get away with just starfucking our eyeballs.

It’s not enough.

There are so many people in the…

Atomic Drops: SUMMERSLAM (2014): The One in 21 and 1

SummerSlam (2014) – Staples Center (Los Angeles, CA) – August 17, 2014 – Main Event: WWE World Heavyweight Championship: John Cena (c) vs. Brock Lesnar (with Paul Heyman) – Announcers: Michael Cole, John Bradshaw Layfield, Jerry “the King” Lawler; Pre-Show: Renee Young, Booker T, Alex Riley, and Ric Flair.

I never thought I’d see a night like SUMMERSLAM 2014.

I am not surprised that Brock Lesnar defeated John Cena to become the WWE World Heavyweight Champion due to the simple fact that I could not see the WWE devaluing Lesnar’s victory over the Undertaker at WrestleMania XXX. What I am surprised about is how it happened, which was a near total and absolute beat down.

The WWE turned the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match into a squash match.

And it was terrible.

And it was incredible.

And it helped make their match into one of the most memorable Championship…

I spend a lot of time in these columns groveling at the Creative team’s feet when something I’ve hated for months (years?) makes me a do a 180. But yet again, they’ve managed to do it.

They’ve made me care about Brock Lesnar.

Please note that I am not here to protect your fragile spoiler-fearing mind. Those SPOILERs right above here is it – everything else is fair game, though I will hold off spoiling the final post-credits scene for a few days because everyone deserves to see that one fresh.

“He called me vermin! And she called me a rodent!” Rocket yells, his voice equal parts shaking in anger and quivering in pain, as his finger points to Drax and Gamora. We’re in the middle of the movie and the early stages of Peter…
