HAMMY’S TOP 10 GREATEST EDGE MATCHES

A few days ago, Randy Orton and Edge competed in “The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever.” Not my words, by the way, but the words of the WWE! Why promote anything as “the greatest ever?” It just places a huge burden on the participants to deliver something phenomenal. Regardless, it was a very good bout…even great…but the greatest ever? Questionable. Continue reading

HAMMY’S TOP 10 MATCHES THAT SHOULD BE IN THE WWE NETWORK’S ‘BEST 100 MATCHES TO WATCH BEFORE YOU DIE’ LIST

In my humble opinion, the WWE Network’s ‘Best 100 Matches To Watch Before You Die’ List is solid. It may lack diversity in the form of women’s matches (I’ll do a Top 10 Women’s Matches soon!). It may favour WWF/E matches over WCW/ECW/other promotion’s matches that you can find on the WWE Network. But in terms of match quality, it’s hard to argue with the list (of course, I did, and click here for my ‘Top 10 Matches That Don’t Belong on the WWE Network’s ‘Best 100 Matches To Watch Before You Die’ List’). However, there are some glaring omissions. You can’t fit everything on there, of course, but I’ve picked out ten matches that, without a shadow of a doubt, should be on the list! Continue reading

Review: Vox Lux (2018)

I usually just do quick reviews here, but no quick review could do ‘Vox Lux’ justice. Well, I suppose it could. I could use just two words: pretentious garbage. That’s it! That’s the review! However, that’s vague and unhelpful. The film has been running through my head now for a couple of days…did I miss something? Did the message fly over my head? Is it some genius masterpiece that I didn’t understand? Maybe…but maybe not.

HAMMY’S TOP 10 REPLACEMENTS FOR MATCHES THAT SHOULDN’T BE IN THE WWE NETWORK’S ‘BEST 100 MATCHES’ LIST

Yesterday, I compiled a Top 10 List of matches I don’t think belong on the WWE Network’s ‘Best 100 Matches To Watch Before You Die’ list (click here to check it out). My reasons for disapproving of each choice were (obviously) in that list. But what use is that to my dear readers if I don’t suggest alternatives to watch instead of those overrated/terrible matches? So here, I’ll simply name the match I disliked and offer a replacement (and a few sentences about why I chose it). I’ve limited my suggestions to matches including one or both participants of the listed match, or a match that involves the stipulation of a listed match (for example, a Steel Cage match for a Steel Cage match!). So, without further ado, here are my suggestions! Continue reading

HAMMY’S TOP 10 MATCHES THAT SHOULDN’T BE IN THE WWE NETWORK’S ‘BEST 100 MATCHES’ LIST

One of the most popular features on my blog are my reviews of the ‘WWE Network’s Best 100 Matches To Watch Before You Die’ (click here to check it out yourself!). I’ve been meaning to expand on the section for a while, including a list of matches that should be on there amongst other things. Now, that’s a tough one, with over thirty years of not only WWE content, but with content from WCW, ECW, and other wrestling companies on the WWE Network as well. I’m not as familiar with the other companies as I am with WWE (a twenty-plus year loyalist here!). Continue reading

Quick Review : Rush Hour (1998)

A buddy cop comedy relies on the chemistry between the two lead actors. And the chemistry between Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker is phenomenal in the first entry of the ‘Rush Hour’ franchise. As per usual in Jackie Chan films, the plot is neither here nor there, but the comedy hits almost every time. Sometimes it tries a little too hard…but that can be forgiven. Continue reading

Quick Review : Super Mario Bros (1993)

How do you adapt a video game. Not like this, not like this at all! I’m convinced this was another movie script rewritten with Super Mario Bros references. What in the holy hell does this film have in common with the video game? Of course, it’s quite hard to adapt a game that was basically about running to the right and jumping on enemy’s heads. But how did the writers come up with this plot? Continue reading

Quick Review : Detective Pikachu (2019)

There aren’t many films in recent memory that jog from absurdity to absurdity (and take it in their stride) like Detective Pikachu. It tries to balance film noir with Pokémon to a confusing, yet sometimes enthralling, degree. The word-building is exceptional. The majority of the Pokémon are brought to life just as Pokelovers (myself included here!) would imagine, full of life and vitality. Rime City is a wonderfully constructed world, with more imagination and eye-popping visuals than most big budget blockbusters and muster up.

So cute!

But eye candy is not enough to distract you from the increasingly silly plot, which flies off twists and turns every ten minutes or so. There’s at least two or three films’ worth of material here (much like Batman vs Superman, actually). Most thought-provoking material pops up for a few minutes, only to be relegated by the next ludicrous revelation. Not only that, but the human characters are so much more duller than the Pokémon.  Worth watching for the visuals…but not much else.

Hammy’s Rating: 2/5

Quick Review : Metroid Fusion (Game Boy Advance)

It had been eight years since an entry in the Metroid franchise…but then, lo and behold, in 2002, we were gifted not one, but two, Metroid titles! Metroid Prime is the more popular/critically acclaimed, and for good reason…but Metroid Fusion for the Game Boy Advance is just as worthy of attention as the sublime Metroid Prime. Metroid Fusion is a direct sequel to Super Metroid, and also returns Samus (for the opening act) to SR-388, the world she explored in Metroid II. Continue reading
