As most of you probably know, Silver Linings Playbook was a movie from 2012 that garnered enough praise and critical acclaim to be nominated for an academy award for best picture. What you probably don’t know is that in 1997 Richard Nixon rose from the dead, robbed a Starbucks in Covington, Kentucky and used the money to buy a racehorse and win the Kentucky Derby. One of these facts I just told you is true and one is false, but each one seems equally believable to me since Silver Linings Playbook is one of the worst movies I’ve seen in years. In this new series on theringcrewshow.com I am going to break down the worst aspects of movies I hate and try to pinpoint exactly why they’re awful.Read More
Like it or not it’s that time of the year. The time where the air gets chilly, the leaves change color and Hell in a Cell rears its ugly head. I think our very own Dubya said it best: “Hell in a Cell used to happen because it was the only way to settle a longstanding, heated feud. Now it happens because it’s October,” but is 2012’s pay-per-view offering truly a waste of your heard earned money that could be spent on the new decapitated Sin Cara t-shirt? Let’s find out.Read More
It’s Bond’s 50th anniversary this year! (only 4 more years and he’s as old as Roger Moore was when he was offered sex from a 17-year-old in For Your Eyes Only). When we think of Bond we think of a suave, cool, daring gentleman who always saves the day in the most dignified way possible, but that’s not always the case. Bond has pulled his fair share of boners in the last five decades and I’ve compiled a list of what I think are the biggest offenders.Read More
This is an addendum to my previous New Super Mario Bros 2 review. Just a few things after playing more of the game to mention, not a re-review.
New Super Mario Bros 2 has been living in our 3DSs for a couple weeks now. We’ve all had the chance to defeat Bowser, grab some of that sweet sweet gold and make up our minds whether the Mario series has hit the skids or if it’s just as fun as ever. Have I changed my opinion on the game in the last fortnight? Well , sorta.Read More
Years after the 3rd nuclear war, when radiation renders the ground infertile and the air toxic to all but the most mutated of the mutants. Deep below the surface of the earth in a lead-lined bunker built hundreds of years ago for some billionaire CEO long dead. Behind 4-inch-thick steel doors, past mounted gun turrets and laser barriers designed to ensure it’s keeper remains protected for eternity. In the center of this iron womb, where the last surviving member of the human race dwells, Shigeru Myamoto sits, making his latest Mario game; and it will be good.Read More
Fun, funny, exciting, if maybe a bit too self-referential.
I really liked Expendables 2, probably better than the first one. This movie hooks you in with an amusing gimmick but manages to be a very solid and well thought out action flick as well.Read More

The WWE’s fourth pay-per-view of 2012 starts off recapping the latest feud between Randy Orton and Kane. The falls count anywhere match starts out and spills out of the ring and backstage rather quickly. Randy and Kane battle backstage and into the bathroom, then into the greenroom where Zach Ryder joins in the fray. Randy and Kane battle back to ringside here the announcer’s table is quickly ravaged, Randy beats Kane with a chair for a bit, then RKO’s him on it and wins the match.Read More
At The Ring Crew Show, we’re all about putting over the independents. We understand that even though mainstream entertainment is engaging, polished, accessible and very easy to get into, without smaller more rough-around-the-edges companies we would be losing endless amounts of creativity and that unique spark that innovates and improves all the things we love. So when I found a little game called Legend of Grimrock on the virtual shelf on Steam, I just had to give it a peek.
And thank god I did.Read More
