I had Money in the Bank on in the background this morning and it seemed like a decent show. That’s two for two when it comes to WWE having shows in front of crowds and me enjoying it. I don’t think I’m willing to brave a 3 hour Raw though.
I actually watched the Dynasty Warriors movie on Netflix last night and I didn’t hate it. They did a reasonable job of recreating the madness of the games into a movie setting, with big Musou moves and bodies flying aplenty. The Romance of the Three Kingdoms series obviously has an absolute cluck-tonne of characters and there are only so many you can include in a 2 hour movie without it getting ridiculous.
As a result, they mostly focused on the main Shu guys and Cao Cao, with Wu pretty much taking a backseat in a “Yeah, Sun Jian and his family also exist” role. I’ll be interested to see if they try making another one and whether Wu will feature more in that one. You’d think the Battle of Chibi would make a good set piece for a movie due to all the stuff with the fire boats and Zhuge Liang trying to summon up the wind, so that could be something to build the sequel around.
