Welcome to Hammy Reviews! Read my views on various TV shows, films, and the WWE (don’t let the latter put you off!). A list of my favourite TV shows would include Doctor Who, The X Files, Battlestar Galactica (the modern one), and 24. Film-wise, the only genres that don’t do much for me are muscials and rom-coms. A list of my top ten films would include Gladiator, Black Swan, The Fly, Robocop, The Raid, The Empire Strikes Back, Spider-Man (2002), The Terminator, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
I could go on, but I won’t. Please bear with me, even if you are put off by wrestling! Yes, wrestling is not the most popular of things. Any time I mention my affection for wrestling the usual reaction is ‘it’s fake.’ Well, of course it is! Isn’t Game Of Thrones? Isn’t the latest blockbuster? There’s a disdain for wrestling that I find strange. It’s a relaxing distraction, like most things on TV! It’s larger-than-life, often ridiculous, but sometimes it can grab you like the best TV show. But I digress…
This is simply a space for my views on films, TV Shows, and WWE. My reviews of the WWE Network’s 100 Best Matches to See Before You Die will be a regular occurrence, until I finally see all 100! I’ll also be reviewing WWE NXT every week and the monthly PPV/Special/Whatever it’s called now. I’m always up for discussion and debate, so feel free to add your comments to reviews. Whether you agree or disagree with me, it’s always good to talk. Or so 02 keep telling me.
The picture of the arena of the Colosseum is my own, by the way. I visited Rome with my fiancée in 2014 (I want to go back; so much I didn’t see! Like the Pantheon…). The TV screen/cinema screen is the modern Colosseum, where the people gather round to distract themselves from reality. As Promixo said in Gladiator, ‘We mortals are but shadows and dust. Shadows and dust!’ But we become part of something when watching a film, the TV, or reading a book. We are entertained. Reality becomes an abstraction. And if you are not entertained, what is the point?
So enjoy my thoughts…or at least be entertained by them!
