1  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Mad Max Returns in Fury Road on: May 18, 2015, 05:48:03 PM

Quote from: farley2k on May 18, 2015, 05:36:49 PM

Loved it!  It was the best action movie I have seen in a long time. 

I do think they could have cut one or two scenes, gotten a PG-13 rating and not hurt the story at all.   I am not in favor generally of toning down "R" scenes if they are important but I don't feel like any of the stuff that was really violent was crucial.

I'm in favor of directors making the best movie possible without gunning for a specific rating, and just going with whatever rating the board gave them.

So tonight was my last night of hard sparring and training, so of course I got hurt. Possible grade 2 calf strain. My fight is two weeks out, the timing is horrible.  I see a doctor on Monday, and I hope this isn't as bad as it feels.

There was one person in my group that didn't enjoy Fury Road, and it was for a legit reason IMO.
During one of the last released trailers for Fury Road, there is a dude playing a flame throwing electric guitar during a destructive car chase.
If you think this is ridiculously awesome, you will most likely enjoy the hell out of this movie. 
If you think that a scene like that would be ridiculously stupid, probably not going to enjoy Fury Road.

Best movie I have seen in a damn long time. While I enjoyed The Road Warrior, I didn't care for Mad Max (original) or Thunderdome.  No prior viewing of the past movies necessary to enjoy Fury Road. 
The action, oh my god the action. This is a clinic on how to do an action movie. I'm trying to find something to nitpick, but I honestly can't come up with anything. 
I am watching this again this Friday, I can't wait.

One of my students is a manager at the movie theatre in Fort Benning, so I get to see it tomorrow!!! Can't wait, and just from the word of mouth this movie looks to be "THE" action movie of the year so far.

Great movie, was not bored once and the time flew by for me.  Love these kind of movies that stays with me and keeps me thinking about it for a few days after watching.

Thanks. That was the last M&M I played. Loved World of Xeen. Hated the undead dragon that chased you around the clouds. Tongue Still finished the game.

Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor - I only played this more because I had to do a review. UGH.
Condolences on Steel Battalion Purge.  I played the demo for literally 30 seconds. Deleted it instantly after.

I fight again May 30th in Mobile, Alabama in a Sanshou Competition/Tournament
http://www.ksfworld.org/#!ksf-events-and-locations/c24vq

If I do well, I will be fighting up to 4 times in a day.  Not sure my body can handle it to be honest.  Also my students at my MMA gym has almost tripled and I'm a bit butt hurt that I can't train as much as I would like. 

From this:

Yeah, but who's willing to call you out on it?

Possibly you, with them guns you are sporting now.  biggrin

I'm not sure I can break his mammoth-sized arms.  Purge would just Hulk smash me. 

Anyways this trailer had me intrigued.  Arnold Schwarzenegger's in a indie in which he looks like he is actually stepping up his acting (speculation based on watching the trailer)

Film is called Maggie and I'm getting a Last of Us kind of vibe.

Next time I travel, I wouldn't mind swinging by for a beer and possibly a spider-related prank (I'll be sure to wear protective gear to keep me from being and unprotected punching/kick bag).

I'm sorry Purge, I couldn't read your post due to your enormous bicep from your profile pic covering everything.

But yeah, if you're ever in the area, swing on by.  Wear a cup, spider pranks get the "Johnny Cage" move from me slywink

Great job on the training Kato - Glad to see your eye-related disability doesn't impede your depth perception slywink

(there's a penis joke in there, I'm just not willing to touch it).

You've got a well-balanced cut to you, and your back is fantastic. I'd suggest when you're forced to retire from fighting that you go into body-building - mind you, your height might be a detractor (I'm 5'9" so it's not harsh judgment from the privileged)

Thanks Purge! I work hard and I'm glad it pays off, especially when people cant believe my real age when they see me.  I only have a limited time to do this, but so far not losing any speed due to my age.  Glad that strength is the last thing to go since that is what has been my advantage in all my fights so far.

So the date of your original fight has come and gone. For some reason I thought it was April 26th.

Did your original fight happen or because you took that impromptu fight, did you skip it?

When is your next fight either way.

Took the short notice fight with the intention of passing on the New York match.  At the end of the day, New York was going to be a difficult one to do logistically. Also, I would have been alone with no corner. 

My next fight is only 5 weeks away and is a local one (finally).  So my family and friends will be there to video record me being victorious or failing miserably.  It is a kickboxing tournament in Mobile Alabama with kickboxing rules, so that means no elbows and knees frown

Watched episode 1 though 7 early this morning and so far loving it. The Netflix model works well for street level marvel heroes since the budget doesn't have to be on a blockbuster type level.  Can't wait for Iron Fist!

The black guy is my friend and training partner Matt, i was able to record him since he fought right after me.  I really need to bring someone to tape my fights next time.

Edit: sorry about the poor recording. I didn't have a seat and couldn't stand anywhere else frown

Break a leg!  His preferably. (Its just an expression, I'm told)

I actually tried to do that during the fight.  My opponent never bothered to check any of my kicks. After I landed the first leg kick hard, he looked at me in horror and I knew he didn't want to be there anymore.  
4 hour drive, 66 seconds in the ring, 6 legs kicks for a TKO in the first.  Dude was out of shape and he looked scared.  Felt bad. I think his whole family came out to watch him fight. Drove home. High fived the wife and drank a little vodka leftover from Harkonis's last visit.

Congratulations, Kato!  So did he verbally quit?

Also, did you taunt his moms and pops after you leapt to the top of the cage?

Not verbally, he just sat down and raised one hand signaling to the ref he was done.  

The family was in the second row and were booing me so I faced them, took out my mouthpiece and smiled smile

Luckily I ignored the voice in my head to take his soul

Lol, so I'm fighting this Saturday on less than two days notice.  4 guys from my gym were supposed to fight this weekend and 3 of them got injured this week.  Really bad luck for them, maybe they should stop sparring each other with chainsaws attached to their gloves slywink



Luckily I'm already at weight so this should work out.  I'm more worried about being an official corner man for my training partner.
