Hi, I'm The Rock, but you can call me 'The'.
 
2005-02-01 10:51:01 AM
'roid rage maybe?
 
2005-02-01 10:51:37 AM
It's not like it's not true. Even I could beat up Tobey Maguire, and look at me!
 
2005-02-01 10:55:27 AM
Tobey Maguire was hired to play a role, which he did very well. I don't think Dwayne could've played the same role in Wonder Boys or Cider House Rules.

That being said, Dwayne is a genuinely nice guy.

Can you say 'latent homosexuality'?

/just gayin'
 
2005-02-01 10:57:23 AM
I bet Tobey can't do 'the people's eyebrow' either.
 
2005-02-01 10:57:36 AM
Some farker to provide NSFW link to Tobey, Leonardo, and David Blaine in 5...4....
 
2005-02-01 10:57:59 AM
I also believe that the everyman role of Peter Parker would be more believable if it were played by some musclebound, steroid taking freak.

Detroit Piston Ron Artest? Really? Someone should've told those Piston fans he was one of their own even though he had on that Pacer's uniform.

Tobey has a big dick. The Rock is a big dick. Tobey wins.
 
2005-02-01 11:09:12 AM
Can you smell what the Rock is cooking? Yeah, that's right he's opened up a can of biatchy dishing-ass, Rona Barrett style!
 
2005-02-01 11:09:21 AM
Oh golly I'm so much more concerned as to which Hollywood star could kick my ass. I REFUSE to go see a movie without at least one star in it that could kick my ass. The weak one's acting is the WORST! Facktard.
 
2005-02-01 11:18:04 AM
At least Peter Parker got bit by a radioactive spider.

I laugh at all the female action heros.

Don't get me wrong, I think Jennifer Garner is as hot as they come, but unless the first shot got me in the balls, and even then, her first shot would be the last... and I'm an average schmuck. I just can't buy these flicks where chicks smack guys around.
 
2005-02-01 11:20:50 AM
Musclebound? The Rock has slimmed down considerably since he quit wrestling full-time.
 
2005-02-01 11:24:34 AM
Hey, the Rock could call me a rooty-poo candy ass anytime.

I wouldn't pay to see him perform Shakespeare, but Lord that man is purdy.
 
2005-02-01 11:24:56 AM
You can actually picture that moron sitting in a theatre and leaning over to his plastic date, "Oh please! I could totally kick that guy's ass!"

*flex*

KnumbKnuts: I just can't buy these flicks where chicks smack guys around.


Hear hear. I blame this all on Charlie's Angels. Now all of a sudden, Jennifer Lopez can go to the gym for a couple weeks, come back, and mop the floor with a guy twice her size? Come on.

TwistedTenacity:

...the everyman role of Peter Parker would be more believable if it were played by some musclebound, steroid taking freak.

The Rock has, to my knowledge, never done steroids. He's a naturally large Samoan, and shows no signs of 'roid use that are present in other WWE characters (e.g. Eddie Guerrero's bacne). The fact that a guy is big, does not automatically qualify him as a steroid user.

What about GI Jane? I totally bought into Demi Moore kicking some Viggo ass.
 
2005-02-01 11:54:02 AM
Good, I was SO sick of the Undertaker/Jake Gyllenhall feud.

I know at least four women that could hand your ass to you on a silver platter, with all the trimmings. And one is five foot two.
 
2005-02-01 12:57:57 PM
dude I would kill to see a movie starring the Rock and Vin Diesel as arch nemesises.

one would have Arnold as his mentor and one Stallone.

And Jean Claude and Seagal as cameo villians

NOW SERIOUSLY WHO WOULD NOT SEE THIS MOVIE.
 
2005-02-01 01:01:56 PM
"Sperminator II"? With that cast, I guess I'd rent it.
 
2005-02-01 01:29:06 PM
I don't know if the Rock has done roids but he does have pectoral implants and has had titty lipo.
 
2005-02-01 01:29:55 PM
The day the "Rock" actually becomes a "star" is the day Paris Hilton wins an Academy. The guy will probably always have movies but his limited acting ability and bad script choices make him a straight-to-video "star" by 2006 at best. The guy is an awful actor.
 
2005-02-01 01:31:08 PM
Man, those Samoans are a surly bunch.
 
2005-02-01 01:31:43 PM
The Rock may be large, but Tobey can ACT.

Not smelling any Oscars for the Rock anytime soon.
 
2005-02-01 01:31:47 PM
erickallen I totally missed that when I read the article. That's funny.
 
2005-02-01 01:31:53 PM
Duh. Maguire is an actor, NOT an athlete. The Rock is an athlete, NOT an actor.

Actually, since he's in wrestling I guess he's ALSO an actor.
 
2005-02-01 01:32:35 PM
I personally don't pay to see any action flick until the star of the movie has proven himself by beating me in a fight. They know where I'm at, but they're scared to show up.

"I loved 'Spider-Man,' but I'm not too sure Tobey Maguire could kick a lot of people's asses."


Unless Tobey Maguire was playing a comic book character THAT HAD SUPERHUMAN POWERS, YOU FARKING WWE RETARD !!!


Jeebus, I would so love to see Ivan "The Polish Hammer" Putski put the slapdown on The Pebble Rock.

Obdicut:

'Kay, I don't want to get into a pissing contest or anything, but I seriously doubt that.

And yes, I've had women in my kung fu and capoeira classes. All of them could probably put the average guy's lights out, so don't take me as a sexist or anything. But the whole "ass-kicking chick" trend is kinda lame, unless it's done right.

Uma Thurman kicking ass was believable, because we saw how well-trained she was, in Kill Bill. Zhang Ziyi and Michelle Yeoh tearing a strip out of a guy's hide is believable, because their movies portray them as having trained for years.

Movies like Charlie's Angels do not do that. They seem to make the assumption that women are genetically predisposed to being able to overpower a man.
 
2005-02-01 01:33:25 PM
Spider-Man is going to kick someone's ass tonight.
 
2005-02-01 01:33:37 PM
I laugh at Spider-Man! Laugh!

 
2005-02-01 01:34:11 PM
The Rock really is the most electrifying man in sports entertainment, but he's a little off-base picking on Maguire ... Peter Parker is SUPPOSED to be a skinny little nerdlinger!
 
2005-02-01 01:34:26 PM
Hmm...why doesn't he compare himself to someone who plays...oh...say Conan for instance! Spider Man isn't supposed to be a brick! Rock is retarded.

iollow...on the nose.
 
2005-02-01 01:34:41 PM
The whole Spiderman schtick is predicated on the wimpy kid factor. I think the artist Alex Ross said some similar things about Spidey, how he's not a real hero or something equally silly. There're those who get it and then there are those who think superhero = massive muscles.
 
2005-02-01 01:34:45 PM
Catchr Will there be any shirts worn in your proposed movie?
 
2005-02-01 01:35:20 PM
CatchrNdRy: Dude, I'd go see it. And I'd be cursing myself all the way to the theater.
 
2005-02-01 01:35:50 PM
The rock is rock hard for the rock, and speaking in the 3rd person. The rock really loves that...
 
2005-02-01 01:35:52 PM
Yeah, well I guess the 'small wimpy dude who gets super powers' concept is a bit of an agonizing stretch for the Rock's wet-matter.
 
2005-02-01 01:36:16 PM
Jesus Christmas....the Rock never got ahold of a Spiderman comic book in his life? Does somebody whisper his movie lines to him or does he actually read the scripts?
 
2005-02-01 01:36:24 PM
Somebody needs to tell Rocky that movies are fake. Kinda like wrasslin.

You, sir, are a God.

Somehow that is HIGHLY unlikely, which ones have you seen no holds barred kick the shiat out of someone?

Women aren't capable physically or mentally to do such.. and pound for pound MUCH weaker than a man the same weight.

You've obviously never seen "The Rundown" ... Best. Action movie. EVER. And hilarious to boot.
 
2005-02-01 01:37:37 PM
Perhaps the Rock would like to audition for the part of Eddie Brock in Spiderman 6?
 
2005-02-01 01:37:59 PM
With Christ At Midnight In The Slums Of Chicago

Wins the thread. You are the new people's champion.

Now THAT is a GREAT IDEA!!!
I think that you would have to have your masculinity revoked if you didn't see that movie.
: )
 
2005-02-01 01:38:13 PM
Don't get me wrong I love the Rock
And his movies full of schlock
 
2005-02-01 01:38:44 PM
Wunnuy,

The Rock isn't that bad of an actor, he does pretty good considering he's a newbie... granted I wasn't really impressed with his earlier work, but for the kind of movies he's doing you don't need a lot of acting experience or ability. But, non-the-less, i'm not sure you are an authority to weather The Rock can act... show me your credentials.

On a side note:
I would love to kick Leonardo Dicaprio's Arse... He was definitely not believeable in Gangs of New York.

And that is all I have to say about that...
