Presented by The Cold Slither Podcast Network Welcome to an all-new Classick Team-Up! For this 18th episode, Classick provides a recap of. So the first time I went in to meet Chartoff and Winkler, I was there on . and he said, “Yes, acting - it's just a child's game played by grownups. Rocky III Thunderlips. () Hulk Hogan's Hulkamania (Video Game) Hulk Hogan (voice) Jake 'The Snake' Roberts: Pick Your Poison (Video).
Keigo is usually in other the receiving end of one of these he once lampshaded it. Makes sense since he's a Masked Luchador. Yamcha uses an elbow drop when fighting Boss Carrot's gangsters. As a boy, Krillin used an elbow drop on a mountain lion that attacked him. Master Roshi considers using a cobra twist or figure four leg lock on Goku but discards the idea on account of Goku's size. He later uses grappling techniques to great effect against Tenshinhan. He later uses the same move during their fight in the 23rd, but this time Tenshinhan keeps Goku from completing the lock At which point they engage in a brief contest of grappling techniques.
Instead of martial arts, Broly uses moves like lariats and slams.
Being about 90lbs soaking wet, she has some trouble lifting Otonashi and smashes him into the ground in the wrong way a number of times.
The Gundam AGE-1 Titus literally is a Humongous Mecha Wrestler, wielding no weapons but instead having beam emitters on its knees, shoulders, and wrists to enhance its bare-knuckle brawling abilities. Kureha from Mayo Chiki! This is justified in that their mother is a professional wrestler. Lucy does this from time to time.
Her Edolas counterpart takes it Up to Eleven. In an omake chapter, Natsu's idea of swimming pool horseplay is German-suplexing Lucy he calls it a "brain-buster". Mio and the Principal from Nichijouboth times Played for Laughs.
The latter even German Suplexed a fucking deer! Sieglinde Jeremiah of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Vivid is fights like this in close combat, utilizing arm drags, submission moves, and crater producing power slams to cripple her opponent.
It's later revealed that these are actually among the least powerful moves in her skill setas the actual techniques of the Jeremiahs were meant to rip armies apart with their bare hands, literally. In episode 7 of Is This a Zombie? In episode 8 of Dog DaysJaune locks Gaul in a juji-gatame.
Gaul manages to counter and lock her in a figure four leglock. In A Certain Scientific Railgun: Mikoto often punishes Kuroko with a suplex or submission hold. Kuroko herself performs an impressive missile dropkick on poor Touma in the parent series A Certain Magical Index.
During the Agitate Halation arc, Touma gets attacked by an angry mob, and counterattacks by mowing them down with several clotheslines. In Kill la KillMako punishes her brother Mataro by putting him in several holds and even uses the Muscle Buster on him. Bear in mind this is not a Shonen manga or anything even close, it's an H-manga about a tutor trying to have mutual though unallowed sex with his year-old student and having to go through her family first.
In Heavy Object Quenser and Heivia at one point end up escorting a princess's maid. When a group of soldiers who had wronged the princess show up the maid demonstrates her love of wrestling moves on them. This would be funny if not for the maid having been put into Powered Armor to protect her; thanks to that each move splatters the victim.
Tanukichi in Shimoneta is repeatedly put in humiliating submission holds by Anna. As a result he becomes experienced enough to dish out some moves of his own. In one of the most impressive examples, Big Bad Lucemon piledrives one of the heroic Digimon so hard that it blows the moon they are fighting on into little pieces The Main character of Violence Jack uses a Vertical Suplex on Mad Saurus in one chapter, and later used a German Suplex to defeat a sumo wrestler, and killed a second with an Argentinian Backbreaker Rack Comics Riley Freeman is a fan of chucking folding chairs at people, the way Sabu does.
Naturally, the action in WWE Superstars mostly revolves around the characters using wrestling moves on one another, considering the characters are based off of real-life WWE Superstars. As described herein their early stories, Batman and Robin would sometime use wrestling moves with good effect, and have even inflicted a Curb-Stomp Battle on two professional wrestlers. Interestingly, their main hint of wrestling skills is that they rarely get to grapple, as they prefer to strike and they're good enough to maintain the preferred range.
Classick Team-Up! # RetroCon and “Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie” Recap – The CSPN
In a variation though, Batman and Robin are noted to use "real" shoot wrestling techniques such as double-leg takedownsas practiced in Greco-Roman wrestling, collegiate wrestling or MMA, rather than the stylized pro wrestling techniques typical of this. Though it depends on the writer, Bane seems to be more of a brawler than a wrestler. However, his signature Bat-Breaker is indeed a wrestling move.
In recent issues, without Venom to give his signature move its crippling and even sometimes lethal effect, Bane has resorted to using other wrestling moves on the caped crusader, such as a modified camel clutch, and even a bridging fisherman's suplex.
Shinji, who is staring the fight from far, barely can believe it, and Misato and Ritsuko argue that Rei must have taken it from Final Fantasy VI. Legendsthe Cute Bruiser Fumiko often displays some moves, notably an elbow drop she uses at one point, and a full body throw in flashback. During the battle for the Element of Magic, Snips and Snails perform a simultaneous clothesline to knock Rainbow Dash down.
Film In Blade IIBlade executes a perfect vertical suplex on one of the enemy mooks, driving him through the glass floor. Meanwhile, Nomak pulls off a massive flying elbow on Blade in their final throwdown.
Donnie Yen incidentally, the stunt coordinator on Blade II flawlessly demonstrates how a German Suplex is done in the movie Flashpoint during a fight in a Chinese marketplace. Any movie featuring a wrestler will often feature that wrestler's signature move somewhere in the film. Many films starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson have him use the Rock Bottom, his old finisher from his wrestling days, at some point.
The most noticeable example is during the fight against the football players at the beginning of The Rundown. However, this was averted in Rock's later films, including Gridiron Gang. He pulls out the Rock Bottom after a long time in Furious 7and any potential Narm is replaced with pure and concentrated awesome by the fact that he's doing it to Jason Statham.
In The MarineJohn Cena chokeslams one of the villains to his death. Unlike with Dwayne Johnson and the Rock Bottom, there's less Narm here because Cena doesn't actually use this move in wrestling, and the camera angle conceals the fact that he's much shorter than wrestlers, like The Undertakerwho do.
Roddy Piper used many wrestling moves in his films, the most iconic being the famous fight in They Live.
Gail Kim uses a lot of hurricanranas and headscissors for her role as the assassin Nadia in Royal Kill. Of course the fact that Nadia isn't actually real and just a figment of Adam's imagination might justify it. Trish Stratus gets in a Stratusphere or two in the action film Bounty Hunters. Batista powerbombs someone to death in The Man with the Iron Fistsand is commonly seen fighting like a wrestler in Guardians of the Galaxyparticularly during the prison break.
He doesn't powerbomb anyone in the latter movie, but has expressed a desire to do so in a future installment. In actual films about wrestling, this might count as a subversion, lampshade, or Shout-Out to the fans.
Superman himself pulls off a suplex in the Superman: Doomsday movie against the titular villain and drives him into the ground. With a short timeout to punch each other some more on the way down. Doomsday himself used a piledriver on Superman earlier in the fight. Even Jet Li got in one during Kiss of the Dragon when he performed a "wrong" i. The Duloc brawl in Shrek. He leaps into a small horse paddock and pulls off a series of wrestling moves on the attacking Palace Guardsgetting progressively more ridiculous.
The chair, give him the chair!! Shrek even poses and cups his ear to the crowd a la Hulk Hogan. In Cursedthe main protagonist geek-recently-turned-werewolf uses several Narmtastic pro wrestling moves while trying out for the school wrestling team, including a backwards suplex in which his opponent is obviously helping him. Urban also appears in The Chronicles of Riddickin which his character kills a good guy with a brutal over-the-knee backbreaker.
Riddick himself, meanwhile, kills a mook by suplexing him onto a stalagmite. In the climactic sequence, B. Baracus executes a scoop slam on Pike, before dropping him directly on his neck mid-move. Needless to say, wrestling moves are included. He responds with an eye rake.
Later in the film, he powerbombs an opponent. He also dropkicks a guy for insulting his mother. AfterlifeChris Redfield uses a spear on Albert Wesker.
However, Wesker has Super Strength and Nigh-Invulnerabilityso it only knocks him back about a foot. Jaguar Paw delivers a rather nasty spear to Middle Eye in Apocalypto. Parodied in Scary Movie 3where Cindy and her boss get into a fight in the background because he won't let her tell the public about the murdering videotape. Not many of the American moves in evidence, but the gang fight scene in A Clockwork Orange is very much in the manner of a hardcore pro wrestling match Indiana Jones attempts a dropkick on a giant Thuggee mook.
It did not stick. Appropriately enough, the mook uses a German suplex. In both Iron Man 2 and The AvengersNatasha Romanov as Black Widow frequently employs the Frankensteiner headscissors takedown with a backflip to battle opponents. This is actually based on the real Russian Martial art called Sambo.
She just added some American-style moves to complement her high agility. It's a blink-and-you-miss-it moment, but Cap pulls a perfect German suplex on the Winter Soldier during the bridge battle.
Infinity Warto compliment his Good Old Fisticuffs fighting style, Thanos uses a few wrestling moves, like chokeslamming Spider-Man or catching the Hulk in a Gorilla Pressfollowed by bodyslamming him. The bathroom fight in Mission: In Wrath of the TitansAres uses a suplex on Perseus. Perseus uses a spear on Ares and then chokes him into near-unconsciousness with a sleeper hold. Well - here's Stallone with both Saturday yesterday's and Sunday today's Drink up!
Now, a lot of women have been known to not love the game of baseball, and to not know how to spell the name of a baseball player that passed away sixty years ago is a forgivable crime, so give the young lady a break, all you dictionary demons….
What were your reasons for changing certain aspects of James Cameron's Rambo 2 Script which has been available on the internet for a while now? In retrospect, do you regret your decisions? Was Cameron ever in talks to direct? I realize his speech at the end may have caused millions of viewers to burst veins in their eyeballs by rolling them excessively, but the sentiment stated was conveyed to me by many veterans.Best of Alaska Thunderfuck - RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars (Season 2) - Logo
Do you have any plans, now that you have put nice guy Rocky to bed, to play a serious villain in a movie? I mean a right nasty piece of work. God knows I saw enough of that growing up.
I notice there's a strong "faith and values" push in the marketing for "Rocky Balboa. Good old-fashioned Christian values, nothing wrong with that.
Over the years, there have been some controversies about your screenwriting credits. Critics say you didn't write enough of "F. T" to earn writing credit. James Cameron says you added the heavily-criticized political angle to his original "Rambo: First Blood Part II" script. Chuck Wepner says you stole his life story for "Rocky. Would you do anything differently, or do you think the controversies are overblown? Second of all, I suppose James Cameron has a point, but in his original draft it took nearly pages to have any action initiated and Rambo was partnered with a tech-y sidekick.
So it was more than just politics that were put into the script. There was also a simpler story line. And finally, Joe Eszterhas wrote a script that was nearly pages and was more of a novel than a shootable screenplay.
A great deal of work was done by myself, along with Norman Jewison, to hammer it into shape, but Joe had conceived a great concept. Having been a life alone Stallone fan, it is safe to say I have seen all of your theatrical movies at least once if not times. Eye See You was your best performances and movies since Cop Land.
When I tell people to check out a great missed movie from Stallone, I always suggest "Eye See You", but I can't understand why this movie never made it to the theaters. It's shame that more people didn't get a chance to see this movie in the theaters. A film is a very delicate creature. Any adverse publicity or internal shake-up can upset the perception of - and studio confidence in - a feature.
For some unknown reason the original producer pulled out and right away the film was considered damaged goods; by the time we ended filming there was trouble brewing on the set because of overages and creative concerns between the director and the studio. The studio let it sit on the shelf for many months and after over a year it was decided to do a re-shoot. We screened it, it tested okay, Ron Howard was involved with overseeing some of the post-production… but the movie had the smell of death about it.
Hey Sly, Bruce Foster once told me this story and I want to know if it's true. He told me he met your brother Frank in a bar one night some 30 years ago. Frank said, "Let's go over to my brother's place. Frank introduced you to Bruce, who noticed that the windows in the apartment were painted black. When asked why this was, you said something about writing a screenplay that was going to make you a star and wanting no distractions.
Did you really paint your windows black while you were writing "Rocky"? But make no mistake about it, my writing was pretty atrocious in the beginning and my style left a lot to be desired. For example, I would begin writing at The writing never amounted to much, but I memorized all the words to the album.
Stallone, I have read your book Paradise Alley quite a few times and I really enjoy it. I have not yet seen the movie as I can't find a copy in any video stores here in New Zealand. What I wish to ask is, Is the book based on the movie or is the movie based on the book? As well as this I would also like to ask what do you think, in retrospect, of the book and the film?
Oh and by the way, I can't wait for Rocky Balboa to come out! I wrote the book first, then the screenplay. So the first time I went in to meet Chartoff and Winkler, I was there on an acting job. They wanted to make it, but the other cretin that I had optioned it to was so obnoxious, so overbearing, that the producers wanted nothing to do with me or the screenplay. The door of opportunity was wide open and I had nothing to carry over its threshold.
And how much longer or different was it? I remember it was re-submitted to the MPAA multiple times in an attempt to get a PG rating which it never got but the film remained truncated and had an especially brief final fight between you and Armand Assante.
The clone stuff felt seriously compromised too. I think, from what I recall, the whole project was troubled from the beginning. It was sort of like a feathered fish. Some of the design work on it was fantastic and the sets were incredibly real, even standing two feet away, but there was just no communication.
