So, I know that there’s been a lot of negativity surrounding the DCEU, but I’ve been enjoying the ride so far. My problems with it aside, Man of Steel was a decent start to this movie universe and I’m one of the (purportedly few) people who really loved Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Suicide Squad was a bit lackluster, but still a pretty fun action flick. Earlier this year we had Wonder Woman, which everyone seemed to love. Now we have Justice League. (Some Spoilers)
As you probably gathered from the last “Match This!”, I’m a big fan of the WarGames format and was quite excited about the NXT show featuring it. What I didn’t know then was that my favorite match wouldn’t be the main event or either title match.
The Road Warriors (Hawk and Animal), Paul Ellering, Dusty Rhodes and Nikita Koloff vs. The Four Horsemen (Ric Flair, Tully Blanchard, Lex Luger and Arn Anderson) and The War Machine (The Big Boss Man)- WarGames match, NWA The Great American Bash Tour July 31st, 1987
It’s very rare that I come across something that really inspires me. When you have a story to tell, it eats away at your insides. You want to share your idea with the world, but you’re also afraid that the world may reject it. It doesn’t matter though, it’s a part of you, no matter the circumstances. I feel like that’s what it means to be an artist, whether you’re trying to make a movie, write a story, or paint a picture. It is an extension of you and who you are. These feelings overwhelmed me as I watched Brigsby Bear.
Though I can’t remember what movie I went to see, I’ll never forget the reaction to one of the trailers that played before it. For about two minutes, they watched the trailer for Devil, as they had the others. That was until a name appeared on screen: M. Night Shyamalan. At that point, the audience began to boo and laugh.

Guillermo Del Toro is an amazing writer and director. I am hard pressed to think of one of his movies that I didn’t enjoy. Of course, some are stronger than others and, in my opinion, Pan’s Labyrinth is his masterpiece. I remember when I first saw it in the theater, walking out and knowing that I had seen what a movie should be.
