A Quiet Place Review By Corey Floyd

A few weeks ago I came across a trailer for a quiet place. It looked like a typical family film but then a kid got mauled for playing with a toy car. Okay, you have my curiosity. Then I saw John Krasinski was in it with a killer beard. Naturally, I was a huge fan of the prankster from the office so I knew I had to see it. Whenever you get funny actors playing serious parts you get gold.
The movie takes place somewhere in mid-America about 2 years after an alien attack. To keep the mystique of the creature there is no origin story behind it. Only a few things are known about them. They are blind and they kill anything that makes a sound. So John and his family live out there days surviving in silence. His wife is played by his real-life wife Emily Blunt so their chemistry is natural. Her character is pregnant and it looks like she could go into labor any minute. The kids fit in with no problem it actually adds more to it since their oldest daughter is deaf and uses a hearing aid. The m…

Suicide Squad Hell to Pay (Spoilers)

By Corey Floyd

The DCEU is on life support. That's not an opinion that’s a fact but thankfully DC animation is constantly gracing us with hits here. The first suicide squad animated movie Assault on Gotham was amazing. They used the Gotham game series as the aesthetic for it and it was everything you wanted from a villain led film.
Then we had … yeah, I’m not gonna go there. So let’s get into Hell to pay. First of all the look is very different from the last one. The first film as I said before used the Arkham game series to model all the characters from or at the very least style them like the game would have. This one has adopted the style seen the rest of the DC animated movies. Also, this is NOT a sequel. I know right !!! I say this because Amanda Waller has a slimmer look closer to the film version and Killer Frost is introduced to the group like it's her first time. They also toned down her very sexualized body from the last movie.    The new look is better. Tara Strong ha…

Jessica Jones Season 2 Review!! By Corey Floyd

Jessica Jones Season 2 has wrapped up. It was a lot to take in. Jessica is the first Defender to return to their show I was curious what direction they are going. A lot of shows spends their second season going forward this one kinda goes forward but you have to go back. The show returns with Jessica back at her craft catching cheaters and being an asshole. She also tightens her relationship with Trish. Meanwhile, she has dreams about her accident from her childhood.  Trish begins to investigate her past and uncovers that she was experimented on and that's how she received her powers. We find out that there are others who have abilities like this husky guy named Whizzer who was the speedster. Say his screen time was short he was killed off fast but he did leave a very good quote “With great power comes great mental Illness. “ Which in my opinion is way better than the original.  While they are trying to figure out who did it Will Simpson returns and now his strength enhancer is an…

Netflix, Cut the SHIT!

By Corey Floyd

Netflix, you have been doing really well for the past few years. You've had some great original series; House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, and a great show with Chelsea, but today I can’t help but notice you have been dropping the ball and letting Hollywood play you for fools. Buying meh movies for big money is a problem.  If you noticed the cover of this article has a poor done CGI Woody Woodpecker on it. No, its not fan art, sadly it’s one of the streaming services recently added movies. These ten-million-dollar crap jobs are not even good enough to keep kids distracted in my opinion. Not worth the keystrokes to even review. I hope they did spend too much money acquiring this cause it’s not worth it.
The Cloverfield Paradox was Netflix shooting itself in the foot. The other two films in the franchise were mysterious and excellent. They were also great from a business aspect with low budgets but and big profits. This franchise is from Paramount and something wen…

Let the Hunt Begin Monster Hunter World Review By Luiggi Cavanna

This game is like Dark Souls meets.. WAIT! where are you going? I was just joking don’t go!! I’m sorry but I had to make the joke, come on. To be fair there’s a lot people that are new to this franchise that might make that comparison but don’t just go get your hunting horn and try to squash them just yet. This is good, we have new people interested in this game and that was the goal that Capcom had in mind. This game made so many drastic changes from previous sequels to attract more people in the western market and at the same time kept most of the formula that made Monster Hunter the game that it is. Monster Hunter is back giving us a perfect balance between old and new that honestly (spoiler alert for the rest of the review) seems perfect to me.
Welcome to Monster Hunter World!!
I have to say, Monster Hunter World is a breath of fresh air for the franchise. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Monster Hunter, but it was in serious need for an update to some of the mechanics and is also nice …

Gaslight gets Greenlight! Movie Reveiw (some spoiler) By Corey Floyd

Gotham by Gaslight was a one shot made back in 1989. It shows a 19th century gotham and of course a 19th century Batman.  It was super popular and have received a sequel. Both were written by Mike Mignola most know for the Hellboy series. Now we fast forward to 2018 were it has been adapted into animated movie. It was directed by Sam Liu who has been under for the confusing take on The Killing Joke. That hiccup has been forgotten with this trip to another timeline.   In this story Gotham is being plagued by the most infamous serial killer of all time Jack the Ripper. In this tale of “Who did it” we see a lot of familiar DC faces.  Selina Kyle (above) is still a badass being played by Jessica Carpenter.      We get a surprise easter egg with not one but three Robins as wayward orphans  who play a small role in the film.  The film starts with the death of one of my favorite villains (OOPS SPOILER!!). If you have never heard of this film your gonna have a real good time watching it it…

Shape Of Water Movie review

By Corey FloydThe Shape Of Water caught my attention back in the summer when I wrote an article covering trailers shown at San Diego Comic Con.   http://amerimemedia.blogspot.com/2017/08/movie-trailers-from-comic-con-by-corey.htm I was very excited to see this film. One, it’s a Guillermo Del Toro film, and two, I thought it was a orIgin story for ABE SAPIEN from the Hellboy franchise. The likeness is uncanny



  and the same actor is playing both roles. This movie had a lot of layers to it. This was a love story & spy thriller written by Del Toro &  Vanessa Taylor. I had to travel far and wide to see this film. It came off like a new creature of the black lagoon.  Which reminds me that he was the offered the job of directing “Creature of the Black lagoon “ for the Dark Universe franchise but declined to do this instead. Smart choice indeed.  The human characters represent the outcasts of early 1960s society.  Elisa Esposito (played by Sally Hawkins)

is mute from a childhood tra…
