Or, We All Done Did It (At One Point or Another)

You know, when rewatching these movies, I always get the impression that my opinion is going to wildly change from what it was originally. It’s happened with TV shows, music, authors, comic books, even the occasional person or two. When it comes to movies though, those I’ve written articles for in particular, it seems like I’m pretty set in my ways. I liked Bride of Frankenstein back then, I like it now. I thought The Crow was dumb back then, and I think it’s dumb now. Not sure why, maybe I’m more critical of film than I am any other medium on a subconscious level, thus I hold it to a high standard. Filtering out the bullshit, in a fashion.

Y’all Been Zapped Lightning Round 712

aaaaa
By Errick Greenlee

Y’all know the drill by now.  If you’re new, you’ll get it.  Take nothing seriously unless it vibes with you. If you find something offensive, it’s because you’re a jive sucka who doesn’t know how to take tasteful jokes or you can’t handle #realTalk…#RNS….#100…gun emoji.

Lightning Round And Pound

aaaaa
By Errick Greenlee

And we’re back.  Welcome to the Lightning Round.  Don’t try to figure anything out.  It’s not so much a rant as it is a broken train of thought.  Or maybe you just can’t see the tracks.  Treat all the paragraphs and separate thoughts and don’t wonder what my problem is.  I have no idea.

Thunderlists: 5 Batman Villains I’d Like to See in Arkham Knight

I’m a big fan of Batman, and not too long ago I bought and played through Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City. Good, solid games I have to say, not without their flaws of course, but the good things about those games generally outweighed the bad I’d say. I haven’t read or seen much of anything about the upcoming game in the series, Arkham Knight, but since there’s only a month or so to go before its release, I decided to make a little list about a couple of characters I’d like to see in said game. This is really off the cuff, like I said I have barely any knowledge about Arkham Knight and who is in it, but I haven’t written an article in a while and I wanted to get back into the groove. This is the result.

God help us all.

Do you ever see something that just makes you so happy that you don’t know how to describe it? That was an apt way to describe me while watching Kevin Owens make his WWE “main roster” debut during the May 18, 2015, episode of Monday Night Raw.

Predicting the 2015 NBA Playoffs: Conference Finals

Second Round Results: 2-2 (8-4)

Two Sundays ago, the Bulls were seconds away from forcing overtime in Game 4, an overtime period that I’m convinced they would’ve won to go up 3-1 on the Cavs. Now they’re at home after giving up in Game 6 and about to lose their best head coach since Phil Jackson. Seconds away. Final four time.

Uneducated Guesses About the 2015 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs: Conference Finals

Second Round Results: 4-0 (10-2)

I’ve been guessing these series pretty well, but I still don’t know enough for you to trust me. Final four time.

Eastern Conference

#1 New York Rangers v. #3 Tampa Bay Lightning – Rangers are hot now. Should beat Tampa Bay in 5.

Western Conference

#1 Anahiem Ducks v. #3 Chicago Blackhawks – This will be a slugfest. I have Chicago in 7 games, but I’m regretting this as I write only because I feel like I’m putting the failed hopes of the Bulls on their shoulders now. Don’t hate me Blackhawks fans. I just want the Chi to win in general. Unless it’s the Bears. Or the White Sox. Even I have a soft spot for the Cubs.
