    MMA & Boxing 20: D.C. Stands For "Double Champ"

    Cain.. now that is interesting, he isn't officially retired so who knows. Would love to see him against Jones.

    I agree, that was a much better match. Great work by her. I had come to believe that Cyborg was unbeatable in the women's field but if anyone could do it it was Nunes. But she made such short work of her as well. Agreed with your assessment of Gustaffson, but sadly his last few fights ( and he's only done very few anyway) have not been that great either, he certainly didn't seem to be get better after the first fight with Jones. Even though he lost that, still maybe his best fight.

    NBA 2018: Fear the Deer

    yeah and a 57 point game this week to top it off.

    Favorite books/series about elves?

    The point is that that there are many, many books about Elves which were not written by Tolkien or by tie-in authors. That list shows quite a few of them, despite you find it questionable.

    Watership Down 2018

    I've not read the book and have not seen the original adaptation. I will see the older ( and excellent looking) adaptation soon. May even read the book because there is quite a lot packed into this BBC/Netflix adaptation that was really intriguing. So with that preamble, let me say I thoroughly enjoyed this adaptation. I thought it was very, very good and fulfilled my expectations. Very atmospheric. I loved some of the characters. I got used to the look of the animation ( only the animation on the rottweiler was weird to me, the rest was ok). Not knowing the story definitely gives one a totally different experience to having read the book, I know that from experience. But voice acting and overall look of this one was very nice, great story. Now onwards to see the original film with that haunting music. I have a feeling it may be even better. BTW on the Bigwig moment, I agree that if in the book it was his own idea, that is even better. But still he had his great moment in this adaptation as well, he actually fought Woundwort to a standstill.

    Gustafsson just went down so much easier than I expected to. Its a bummer.

    HBO's Sharp Objects

    I was gonna point out how wrong you'd have to be on that. But then I checked myself, and googled it. Kidman's 51, which is what I was expecting. But Adams is 44, that is definitely older than I thought she'd be ( mid-late 30's is what I figured).

    That is strange because there are hundreds of books out there focusing on elves that are not tie in or by the Prof.

    Assassin's Apprentice Opinions?

    As much as I loved the first trilogy, I loved the second just as much, in a different way because it has a different feel for several reasons. Third series also very exciting.

    NBA 2018: Fear the Deer

    I like him a lot actually. I love the whole "The Beard" look and the way he's just an awesome player. He scores from every angle, he's a phenom really.

    There's simply no other challenge for Jones in this LH category so either Cormier comes back to LH or they fight at heavyweight. I'd definitely want to see that fight. It's still a rivalry despite two clear losses. I also agree with those who say that Cormier needs to do this before his career is over, and he may only do one or two more fights as it is.

    NBA 2018: Fear the Deer

    Yes he is and he has been on a great roll lately. Something like 9 games in a row with more than 35 points, believe Houston now has 9 in 10 consecutive games with him leading the charge ( Paul is out again). It's some sort of record apparently.

    MMA & Boxing 20: D.C. Stands For "Double Champ"

    Cause its the only fight that makes any real sense and garners any real excitement there. Definitely the fight to see.
