Promos By Hyphen: Is This The End? (Fallout)

I decided after Money In The Bank that it was time that I stopped supporting the current WWE product. Last Monday, I was in a state of, not anger, but definitely apathy. I deleted the WWE App from my phone. I made sure my WWE Network subscription wouldn’t auto-renew come September. I started unfollowing WWE-ran accounts on my Twitter and unliked some pages on Facebook. I even unfollowed a wrestling site that I’ve relied on for news since 2008.

TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION: Honor to the End

Transformers Age of Extinction

Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) – Directed by Michael Bay – Starring Peter Cullen, Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Titus Welliver, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Sophia Myles, Li Bingbing, T.J. Miller, John Goodman, John DiMaggio, Ken Watanabe, Reno Wilson, Mark Ryan, and Frank Welker.

I have a saying that I like to use when a movie connects with something inside of me: “I feel like this movie was made just for me.”

Judging by the extreme negative reaction to TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION, this might be the one time that saying is actually true.

Unabashedly and non-ironically, I love AGE OF EXTINCTION. This is the TRANSFORMERS movie I’ve been waiting for since the first one, a big, loud, thunderous movie that puts the Transformers (well, Optimus Prime, at least) out front and makes them the entire point of the movie, instead of rendering them as sidekicks in their own…

Atomic Drops: MONEY IN THE BANK (2014): Fandango Loves Triangles

Money in the Bank 2014

Money in the Bank (2014) – TD Garden (Boston, Massachusetts) – Main Event: WWE World Heavyweight Championship Ladder Match (vacated title): John Cena, Randy Orton, Alberto Del Rio, Bray Wyatt, Roman Reigns, Cesaro, Sheamus, Kane – Announcers: Michael Cole, John Bradshaw Layfield, Jerry “the King” Lawler; Pre-Show: Renee Young, Booker T, Alex Riley, and Christian.

MONEY IN THE BANK 2014 barely qualifies as a decent episode of RAW. The first true PPV clunker of 2014, MONEY IN THE BANK featured way too much filler and two Ladder Matches that were far too crowded and far too predictable. Jerry “the King” Lawler couldn’t remember if the WWE Network cost $9.95 or $9.99 a month, but it doesn’t matter because if MONEY IN THE BANK is the only thing the Network had to offer, I’d have felt like I overspent.

Luckily, MITB 2014 isn’t the only thing the Network has and at…

Sorry I haven’t written. I started my annual WWE Year End Awards column but it’s sat unfinished for a month or so. I hope to have it done before next month’s Battleground PPV. But what I’m really here for is to not complain about a man I once praised, but the product in general.

In Defense of Michael Bay Movies

Originally posted on Atomic Anxiety:

Michael Bay

Before heading to the theaters to see TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION, I wanted to watch the first three Michael Bay TRANSFORMERS movies to see if I still felt the way I did upon watching them the first time: I loved the first one, hated the second one, and thought the third was okay.

I watched TRANSFORMERS last night and I still love it, even with all of its Shia LeBeouf-ness, and it got me thinking about the kinds of movies Michael Bay makes. The internet is awash with Bay bashing because the internet loves nothing more than an easy target (and Bay is certainly a self-created easy target), but for all of the talk of how EXTINCTION will surely suck, it’s still going to fly by $100 million at the domestic box office on its opening weekend.

That’s a whole lotta people going to see a movie the internet would…
