D-Rock's Spooktober Film Festival GRAND FINALE!

Image
Well, the day has finally arrived! And to celebrate, I'm going to go through every scary movie I've watched this month. You see, two years ago, I decided I wanted to watch as many scary movies as possible in the month of October. It was--I can't stress this enough--awesome. And ever since then I've made this quest a yearly tradition. This year, I decided to make it a little more fun by live-tweeting a few of these--at least when I had the energy for it. However, there are a whole bunch of movies (and some TV shows!) I never got to talk about for my adoring public here at Vundablog. So I decided I would make a list of every movie I watched this month and say a little something about each one. Because I know how important it is to you all to know what I think about all the movies I watch. So let's do this...

TOOL - "Fear Inoculum" Review (Stream-of-Consciousness)

Image
It's finally here. After 13 long years of waiting, we have finally been graced with a new Tool album and if it was possible for this to live up to the hype, it has done so. The album dropped on iTunes around 9:30 last night for those of us who pre-ordered it and I immediately listened to the entire thing in headphones and took notes with the intention of synthesizing those notes into a standard review. But nothing about this is standard. This is a culmination of Tool as a band. So I wanted to do something a little different. Something a little more in the spirit of this album. So I decided to take my notes, polish them up a bit for readability and post them as is to give a sense of the stream-of-consciousness experience I had listening to this album for the first time. I hope it works as well in practice as it sounds like it will in theory. Enjoy!

D-Rock Reviews Slipknot's New Album, "We Are Not Your Kind"

Image
I don't care how ridiculous people think it makes me sound: I'm proud to have been a fan of this band for the past 20 years since their debut self-titled album was unleashed. I'll never forget the moment my best friend handed me his headphones and said "check this out" with a slightly evil smirk. It was like nothing I'd ever heard--unbridled energy; angry and frustrated and disgusted and desperate and powerful. When the world was introduced to Slipknot, most people thought they were a complete joke--a flash-in-the-pan gimmick that would be here today, gone tomorrow. But it's twenty years and six albums later and this band has firmly established themselves as elder statesmen of heavy metal music and future Rock and Roll Hall of Famers. With "We Are Not Your Kind," the nine-piece ensemble of chaos and beauty has not only done it again but has actually established themselves as a band that is still continuing to get better at what they do. They…

Kliq Bait: Top Five NJPW G1 Climax 29 Finals Matches We Want to See

Image
It's that time of year again! The G1 Climax is one of the most famous and respected professional wrestling tournaments in the world today and this year, I, D-Rock, was there live and in person (with my sister-best-friend Renee!) as the G1 kicked off in the U.S. for the first time ever with a very special Night One show in Dallas, TX. Now, as the G1 progresses and we see some separation happening in the standings, it's inevitable that we start thinking about who we could see meet in the finals of this prestigious tournament. There are so many stories to be told and so many great matchups to choose from (especially with newcomers like Moxley and KENTA in the mix), it was excruciatingly difficult to choose five (well, sort of...) but these are the five(ish) matches we here at Vundablog would LOVE to see in the G1 Final:

The Rhodes to AEW: "The Road to Fight for the Fallen" Episode 1

Image
-The first segment features AEW Vice President of Business Operations Nik Sobic talking about Tony Khan and the Madden shooting and the VAAC. According to Sobic, Tony Khan has had the idea for AEW in his head for over three years now, which I thought was pretty cool and interesting. Makes me wonder how the idea has evolved and what his vision may have been then and now and what Cody, Matt, and Nick may have brought to that vision. 
Sobic also speaks a bit about the August 2018 shooting at the Jacksonville Landing where a gamer opened fire on fellow gamers in a Madden video game tournament, killing three (including himself) and injuring ten others. He talks about how it affected the Jacksonville community and how Tony lives just a few blocks away and how important it was for them to use the proceeds from Fight for the Fallen to give back to the Jacksonville-based Victim Assistance Advisory Council (VAAC), which, in the words of Tony Khan, "helped so many people during that incred…

The Rhodes to AEW: "The Road to Fyter Fest" Episode 3 Breakdown

Image
-The first segment is Brandi Rhodes announcing that All Out sold out in 15 minutes and 137,600 people tried to buy tickets which is pretty impressive even if it is mostly ticket seller bots buying the tickets. Bots aren't buying up New Japan tickets in those numbers, for whatever it's worth. Brandi also announces that the AEW Women's Championship will be unveiled at All Out--interestingly, she didn't say a champion will be crowned at All Out which makes sense considering the AEW champion wouldn't even be crowned yet if they did that. Should be very interesting to see whose names start being brought up for the women's title. Of course you have to think Awesome Kong, Nyla Rose, Britt Baker, and Kylie Rae are at the top of the list. Riho and Yuka Sakazaki might well be in the conversation depending how their match with Nyla goes at Fyter Fest. Brandi also has a match with Allie at Fight for the Fallen two weeks later so expect to see their names in the mix. Now t…

The Rhodes to AEW: "The Road to Fyter Fest" Episode 2 (and 1)

Image
We're trying out a new feature here on Vundablog--possibly temporary or perhaps rolling into an eventual weekly feature once AEW on TNT premieres--where I (Derrick) will be doing some short little breakdowns of the AEW "Road to..." videos. I've been following these pretty much from what I would deem the official beginning of the AEW canon timeline, beginning with "The Road to Double or Nothing." Those videos were excellent, if you want to go back and watch them on the Nightmare Family YouTube channel. I especially can't recommend highly enough episode 13 where Dustin Rhodes is revealed as Cody's opponent. Just brilliant stuff.

One of the things I (and many others) find so compelling about these short webisodes is that they are, to some extent, the first real preview we've gotten of something like what an AEW television show could look like. Of course, the actual show could very well lean more toward a conventional pro wrestling show format with…

Continuing our analysis of what could influence the themes and cinematography of Episode IX we watched the 1978 film Midnight Express, written by Oliver Stone. A still from the film was found Vic Mahoney's office wall. She was the 2nd unit director for The Rise of Skywalker and her moodboard has provided quite a bit of material about the film.

Top 10 NXT TakeOver (and Arrival) Matches of "All Time" (the past five years, basically)

Image
Welcome to Part 1 of our very special WrestleMania Weekend preview of a piece I have been working on for months upon months now: my top 50 wrestling matches of all time. It's going to be a WHILE before this beast finally comes to fruition as it is currently still in the research stage (I have a pretty good idea of what the top 50 are going to be, there's just a few matches I still want to watch before I start the writing process) but I'm so excited about it that I wanted to give folks a little sneak preview and with WrestleMania Weekend upon us, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to do so in a way that also simultaneously celebrates the biggest weekend of the wrestling calendar.

All ten of these matches will be featured in the final version of the top 50--and some of them might be higher than you think! It's staggering to think about the fact that NXT has only been around for five years and has only done about 30 TakeOvers (and one Arrival) and yet they've alr…
