on events over the past couple of weeks, The Miz and Wade Barrett are feuding
over which WWE Superstar is in the better movie or which one is the better
actor. Or maybe theyíre feuding over what is the better movie snack. For those
that arenít aware, The Miz is the lead actor in the latest WWE Films direct to
DVD movie The Marine 3. Wade Barrett plays Henchman #4 in the theatrical
release Dead Man Down starring Colin Farrell and Terrance Howard. Neither
man should really be crowning himself the next Dwayne Johnson based on these
projects. <>

I have not seen any of the
Marine movies so I canít really comment on The Mizís performance. Though, I
will say, bragging about being a star in a movie that may already be in the
discount bin at Wal-Mart isnít saying much. I did see Dead Man Down and thought it was good, but too slow
paced. The big shocker though is
that the newest addition to the WWE Films library is also one of their
best. <>
The Call, starring Halle
Berry opened this past weekend and placed number 2 at the box office with an
estimated $18 million. While the previews had me thinking this would be an
uninspired paint by numbers action movie, it turned out to be a pretty tense
thriller. The bigger surprise was
the actor playing the partner of the main cop, who knew David Otunga was a good
actor? I initially didnít recognize him because he wasnít wearing a bowtie or
holding a thermos of coffee. <>

Now donít start thinking
Otunga stole the movie, as his role was only slightly bigger than Wade
Barrettís role in Dead Man Down. Even so, if thereís going to be a feud over
whoís the better C-level actor in WWE today, then David Otunga should come out
on RAW tonight and demand an Intercontinental title shot at Wrestlemania.
There have been some feuds started over odd happenings (Edge/Booker T. fought over a Japanese shampoo commercial, Chris Jericho/Kane fought after Jericho spilled coffee on Kane) but I think feuding over who is the better actor in a movie few people know about and less people saw has to be up there with some of the flimsiest reasons to fight.
