Ranking 2017’s WWE Pay-Per-Views from Worst to Best

Liam Hoofe ranks this year’s WWE PPVs from worst to best…

WWE has had a very interesting 2017. The year will best be remembered for some of the most bizarre booking decisions in recent history and for having far too many PPVs for it to handle, but from an in-ring standpoint, the year hasn’t been all bad.

With so many PPVs to contend with, it seemed only natural that there would be the occasional stinker. The company did manage to put on some great shows as well, though, so let’s take a look back at all 16 of the year’s events, and rank them from worst to best.

16: Battleground

Imagine if someone had told you last year that a WWE pay-per-view was going to close with The Great Khali and Jinder Mahal walking up the ramp, while the latter celebrated with the WWE title. 2017 was a strange

13 horror films for people who hate horror films

Chris Thomson Oct 29, 2017

Have a collection of horror films that are great, but might still let you sort-of-sleep at night...

It’s fair to say that not everyone gets along with horror films. For every horror aficionado who revels in being scared witless or seeing a hapless victim have their insides rehomed, there are plenty who would rather chew gravel than spend two hours in the company of their worst fears and nightmares.

Somewhere in between is a bizarre middle ground (which is where I sit) of those intrigued by the thought of horror films, but in practice spend half the film ingesting their own fingernails or testing the structural integrity of the arm rests.

If you’re not a huge fan of horror but still fancy dipping your toe in the water, here are 13 horror films perfect for those who don’t like horror films...

Morbido, Mexico’s Top Genre Festival, Turns 10

With Roger Corman, the trailblazing “Pope of Pop Cinema” no less, as its guest of honor, the Morbido Film Fest marks its 10th anniversary with great panache.

From Oct. 26 to Nov. 5, Latin America’s premier genre film fest aims to lure the best and boldest of the genre universe. Past guests of honor have included John Landis whose direction of Michael Jackson’s iconic music video “Thriller” was feted at last year’s opening ceremony, where dancers re-enacted Jackson and his dance troupe’s much-lauded moves. The festival’s extravagant opening ceremony sets the tone for the rest of the festival, says Morbido Group CEO-founder Pablo Guisa Koestinger, who as master of ceremonies and host, goes through a variety of costume changes himself throughout the fest.

In the past nine editions, guests of honor from 29 countries included such luminaries as Joe Dante, Hideo Nakata, Elijah Wood, Richard Elfman, Takashi Murakami, Michael Nyman and Jaume Balaguero.

Ten Classic Scary Movies For Halloween

I have known for years, many people will not watch black and white movies, of any kind. It has to be color and no older than 10 years, preferably movies made this year, or last year. I have had people look at me with astonishment when I tell them I not only watch black and white movies regularly but even silent movies. I’ve had people admit they didn’t know movies were being made in 1927, much less 1915.

So for this Hallowe’en, when movie geeks thoughts turn to scary movies here is my personal and eclectic list of great, old, scary movies, filmed in glorious black and white.

10. Nosferatu 1922

The Great Grand Daddy of all Dracula movies, and the template for every vampire movie ever made, the first, one of the best and still creepy, even if you’ve seen it repeatedly. A silent masterpiece by Fw Murnau and with

Jennifer Lawrence Shares ‘Degrading’ Harassment Stories: Producer Told Her She Was ‘Perfectly F-ckable’

Jennifer Lawrence Shares ‘Degrading’ Harassment Stories: Producer Told Her She Was ‘Perfectly F-ckable’
Jennifer Lawrence revealed her own experiences facing harassment when she was just starting out as an actress during a powerful speech at Elle‘s Women in Hollywood event in Los Angeles on Oct. 16, where the actress was one of eight honorees. Lawrence remembered the “degrading” requests made by producers for her to lost weight during one of her earliest auditions.

“When I was much younger and starting out, I was told by producers of a film to lose 15 pounds in two weeks,” Lawrence said. The actress was told that another young woman had already been fired from the role for not losing the weight fast enough.

The Essential Vampire Films

In readiness for Halloween, Tom Jolliffe takes a look at the essential Vampire films…

With that thing coming up that takes place on the last day in October. You know the one? Yeah, candy sales go through the roof, your house gets egged and toilet papered. Meanwhile you sacrifice a chicken over a Ouji board in the hope of getting Kevin James to stop making films. It never works and you just unleash hell on Earth (or to put it another way, a new Kevin James film comes out). With that in mind, I thought it’d be a good time to look over the best Vampire films around.Why Vampires? Well I was watching a film (that will appear on this list) and had a brainwave.

Ghost Stories review – Martin Freeman and Paul Whitehouse shine in dreamlike spookfest

Co-directed by Andy Nyman and The League of Gentlemen’s Jeremy Dyson, this three-part portmanteau horror turns out a disturbing, atmospheric fable

Ghost Stories is a barnstormer of an entertainment, a fairground ride with dodgy brakes. It’s an anthology of creepy supernatural tales in the intensely English tradition of Amicus portmanteau movies from the 1960s, such as Dr Terror’s House of Horrors, or the Ealing classic Dead of Night. Each story is made individually stranger and tinglier by the way the film allows you to notice an overarching narrative between them, becoming increasingly visible through the uncanny accumulation of coincidental detail.

The film’s writer-directors Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson have adapted it from their colossally successful stage show: Nyman is the actor, writer and magician who has devised productions for Derren Brown; Jeremy Dyson is the actor, comedy writer and co-creator of The League of Gentlemen. I

‘Battle of the Sexes’: How the Camera Captures the Subversive Politics of the ’70s
In an award season dominated by biopics and politics, “Battle of the Sexes” serves the first volley with its deep dive into the sexual revolution and the women’s movement of the ’70s. When tennis star Billie Jean King (“La La Land” Oscar-winner Emma Stone) beat blowhard Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) at the Houston Astrodome in 1973, she not only struck a blow for equality and respect, but also gained the confidence to pursue her sexual identity as a lesbian. Therefore, the sports/biopic directed by the husband and wife team of Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (“Little Miss Sunshine”) captures a game-changing moment that resonates today in Trump’s America.

And in visualizing the era, Oscar-winning cinematographer Linus Sandgren (“La La Land”) went at it without a whiff of nostalgia. “Basically, Jon and Val wanted to make a film like it was made in the ’70s on real locations in a contemporary fashion,

William Friedkin Challenges Darren Aronofsky to a ‘mother!’-Inspired Bible Debate — Listen

William Friedkin Challenges Darren Aronofsky to a ‘mother!’-Inspired Bible Debate — Listen
“Do you believe in God?” William Friedkin recently asked this question to Darren Aronofsky after a screening of “mother!” at the Director’s Guild of America in Los Angeles. “The Exorcist” filmmaker was struggling to understand what exactly Aronofsky was trying to say about God and the Bible in his polarizing new movie, and let’s just say Aronofsky’s views don’t exactly line up with Friedkin’s.

The two directors have known each other for quite some time, but “mother!” has brought a little friendly contention into their relationship over their opposing religious beliefs. The DGA recorded their conversation for its Director’s Cut podcast, and it’s absolutely fascinating to listen to them debate about their viewpoints.

‘mother!’: Darren Aronofsky Reacts to ‘F’ CinemaScore, Says ‘Some People Are Not Going to Want to Listen’
“mother!” isn’t exactly cleaning up at the multiplex, not that Darren Aronofsky seems terribly let down. His enigmatic thriller scored a rare “F” from CinemaScore, a dubious badge of honor shared with movies both good (Steven Soderbergh’s “Solaris”) and bad (“I Know Who Killed Me”); the writer/director has responded to that failing grade on Kpcc’s the Frame, expressing neither surprise nor disappointment.

Aronofsky, who most recently directed “Noah” and “Black Swan,” calls his movie a reflection of the way currently things are in the world — so of course it isn’t winning audiences over en masse. Here are his full comments:

“What’s interesting about that is, like, how if you walk out of this movie are you not going to give it an ‘F?’ It’s a punch. It’s a total punch.

‘Woodshock’ Review: Kirsten Dunst Is Way Too High on Her Own Supply in First Movie from Fashion Icons Rodarte

‘Woodshock’ Review: Kirsten Dunst Is Way Too High on Her Own Supply in First Movie from Fashion Icons Rodarte
The debut feature from fashion luminaries Kate and Laura Mulleavy (of Rodarte fame), “Woodshock” begins with an agonized weed dispensary worker rolling a joint, lacing it with poison, and lighting it up for her terminally ill mother. Pot is legal in California, but dying with dignity is not, and so this sort of thing has to be done on the sly. Theresa (Kirsten Dunst) is devastated that it has to be done at all — and disturbed by her role in facilitating it — but she can’t bear to leave her mom in such pain.

The corpse isn’t even cold before Theresa begins to break down. Grief always carries the trimmings of psychosis, but this is something else — she’s not just mourning, she’s practically living a Polanski film. And things don’t really get any better for her after she’s responsible for a mix-up at the office

Ex-tna stars join WWE, Braun Strowman WWE return leaked? – WrestleTalk News

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Earlier this year, Luke Harper looked to be set for great things following one of the hottest feuds in WWE: The Viper In The Family storyline between Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt. Flashforward several months later, and all three of those men are arguably considerably worse off. Nice one, House of Horrors match.

With Bray now on Raw and Erick Rowan being weird with a gas mask, Harper is trying out a new gimmick: Family Man, where he talks about his beautiful wife, wonderful child, yadda yadda.

And boy, has he got a corker of a first feud: Aiden English.

Harper has a long-running gimmick on twitter where he posts the day of the week, every day without exception, with the message “You know what that means.” After creepily stalking Harper at a Smackdown house show,

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Randy Orton helped create a new wrestling meme from outta nowhere at the weekend, when he retweeted a critique of the indy match formula – handshake, drawn out move exchange, this is awesome chant, strike exchange, dive, no sell Indy strongstyle, dive, more strikes, no sells, dive, flippy floppy sequence, dive, etc.

This initially drew responses from a seemingly angry Tjp, a surprisingly agreeable Ricochet, and a merchandise potential realising Will Ospreay.

The Viper didn’t strike again until Bubba Ray Dudley jokingly tweeted about his own version of the ‘…dive’ – a belly flop from the top rope.
