Big night on Monday Night RAW tonight. We've got a Fatal Four-Way for the new Universal Championship. Finn Balor won the title at SummerSlam but quickly had to relinquish the title due to injury. Matches were then had last week to determine who would wrestle tonight for the championship and it's Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, Big Cass, and Roman Reigns.
I wrote up a little breakdown/preview for the match tonight. I could just copy and paste it here but I'm all about those clicks. Go check it out.
The Bollmeyer Matinee Movie Tour rolled on yesterday despite summer ending. Made a trip to the theater to see War Dogs, the movie based on a true story about two guys in their 20s from Miami bidding the sell arms to the US government. The backstory behind the movie may be better than the movie itself. After watching the movie in the theater I went home and Googled some of the information behind the movie as I'd never heard of this before.
I won't spoil the movie for anyone still planning on going to see it but basically this guy drops out of high school and finds his way working for his uncle selling firearm weapons. He eventually starts his own business doing the same thing and recruits his high school buddy. Apparently during the Bush administration there was a public website where anyone could bid on providing the US government with the military equipment they needed. These guys started doing that, got big enough where they were making international deals, and then find their way into trouble. All based on a true story. It's crazy.
The movie itself is solid, but unspectacular. The movie never drags but it never really sucks you in either. My biggest problem with the movie is you can see the potential conflict plot twist coming a mile away. I won't spoil it but it's just sitting there for about 30 minutes like a hanging curveball. I prefer movies where I don't see it coming. But overall it was solid. Great surprise performance from Bradley Cooper, who's starting to build quite the Hollywood resume. And a great showing from some actress I'd never heard of, Ana de Armas. I'm not sure if she's new or I'd just never heard of her before but I'm all-in on her now.
I have HBONow or HBO2Go or whatever you call it and not the actual HBO channel. Which means I have to wait until I get home from work today to watch the series finale of The Night Of. So don't spoil it for me if you've seen it already but here's my prediction.
Naz ultimately is found Not Guilty. I think it could go either way though. I'm leaning Not Guilty but it's only like 55/45 in my mind, I wouldn't bet any actual money on it. The tone of the series makes it seem like Naz is found Guilty and goes back to prison for years and is miserable. But since we are assuming he didn't actually kill that girl, it would makes sense that HBO would fill in the gaps for us in the finale to show who did kill her. Was it the 2nd man on the street that night? Or was it maybe her creepy stepfather? Or maybe it actually was Naz?
But there seems to be a lot of loose ends that could be answered, and with only 1 episode left I'm afraid they all won't get answered. I haven't heard, maybe there is a second season in the works? I hope not, I would like to get a definitive ending on this in the finale. Recap coming in The Three Count whenever I end up watching it.
