Thoughts on DC Legends Of Tomorrow



Review written by Antoine Johnson aka Tony Newport
writer and artist for Amerime Media 1/22/16


What can I say? as a fan of both shows Arrow and The Flash I can say that this is one of DC's ballsiest  shows to date. I'm completely caught up into the lore of these characters, their origins, their struggles, and the things they had to do to get to where they are. I wonder if the many people who have stopped watching or never seen DC's Arrow will The Legends Of Tomorrow be a show that they can get into and not feel lost and confused? 

The CW thought they were clever by scheduling a recap episode of the characters to draw you into the show without prior shows knowledge and expect you to care instantly for them and be excited. I remind you that they have been advertised for over a year now and yet the question still remains, do people even care? I say they should be because how many times do people really need an origin story shoved in every show we get? Not many! Hell, the show Gotham is nothing but Bruce's origin in real time.

Legends of Tomorrow may have a lot going for it in the respects that, as a solo show, it can stand on its own.You may disagree, but hear me out, I've watched every episode of Arrow since its debut and followed reactions of most people who had mixed feelings about the show with every season that goes by. What got people interested again was the introduction of the Flash. Now the Flash is a show that stands alone on its own because he's a well-known character that everyone knows and the main focus of the show is him being the only hero. With Legends, on the other hand, contains some of the best side characters finally getting their chance to shine. Do I care to see this... yes I do! Do you care to see this? maybe after the little explanation of the pilot I'm pretty sure you'll want to get to know these characters more. 

Even though the pilot does little to explain the characters because they assume you should know them by now, it  goes a long way to explain the plot. The show creators thought that the only character we really need to know is Rip Hunter because he's the driving focus that brings the new team together. As far as the team, we learn their differences and their respective reasons for joining (well done Greg Berlanti and friends.) The chemistry between most of the characters makes you believe that they know each other and it's nothing new to them even though it is. Even if you're someone who's new to the series, this blogger believes that you should give it a try. It's a hero/villain team unlike anything we've seen so far, and I find it interesting and I think you will too.

Casting Thoughts By Corey Floyd

Recently John Boyega was seen at Marvel Studios and no one has heard anything since. My thoughts were in the air but an artist Boss Logic made something that got me thinking.   Now hear me out I know it sounds crazy but now that I see it in front of me it’s not crazy at all. We have seen the body transformations from Marvel before. John is in good shape but he’s not in Marve shape in a few months he could be the next Blade. Now I know there a few thousand of you out there yelling “Wesley Snipes is the only Blade blah blah blah “ I like Wesley I really do but at 55 I don’t see him moving like he used to and it’s time for younger blood. He wasn’t even moving like his old self in Blade Trinity.
I’m digging into Iron Heart again. Now a while back I had a few choices on the matter you can check them out here http://www.amerimewire.com/2017/05/whos-next-part-two.html but after watching Black Panther I have a new idea. What if Shuri became Iron Heart? It’s not a far-fetched idea. What if Sta…

Made in Abyss Discussion

BY LUIGGI CAVANNA The Final Episode
“This anime season was a little bit underwhelming”, those were my thoughts at the beginning of the season if I recall correctly. I did talk about three different shows of this season in my blog “The Anime Season So Far”, but let me say that “Gamers” didn’t quite recover after episode five, and “Tsurezure Children”, even though stay consistent, was still just a romance anime and if you are not into romance you were shit out of luck. So aside from two-day specials like “Owarimonogatari” or recurring anime like “Boku no Hero Academia” there wasn’t much out there, except for…



Of all the shows from this season, “Made in Abyss” was the one I waited for, every week, with the most anticipation. This show left such a mark on me that I have to talk about it, so I decided to create another segment like “The Anime Season So Far” and name it “The Final Episode”. In this segment, I’ll take a second look at one anime near the ending of a season, in which I’ll discuss…

BIG MOUTH!!! LOL ( Spoiler Free)

By Corey Floyd




About  a month ago I came across a trailer for Big  Mouth. It comes off as a cartoon about a group of kids hitting puberty. Which is sweet, awkward and Innocent. But then I heard that Nick Kroll ( The Kroll Show, the League) and John Mulaney I knew this was gonna be some wild stuff. This show is a very wild ride and I loved every minute. Let me break down why this is the show you need to see.
The cast consists of some of the funniest people on television. As I already mentioned Kroll & Mulaney are writers as well as two of the main characters Andrew & NIck. Jessi Klein ( writer for Inside Amy Schumer) plays Jessi ( I know right) a young woman who has just hit puberty and not sure what to do and you meet her her new friend. Missy voiced by Jenny Slate ( Bellwether from Zootopia) who is the most level headed of the group. Then you have the wild card Jay played by Jason Mantzoukas ( Sad sax guy from regular show,  Eagle wing Kroll show) he lives in a house of aggress…
