Unconventional Love…. Movies

By Corey Floyd
Title: horizontal line

I hate Crappy love movies. I mean seriously they are the absolute worse. I would rather watch Fan4stic all day with the sounds on max. Okay, I’m lying about the last one but they are so predictable. Let's keep it real Titanic, The Notebook, the ugly truth. We all see them coming so predictable but in the wave of love movies, there are a few that stand out. They are really good and took a lot of different turns. I honestly didn’t think the ending would be what is was. 
Judd Apatow’s Knocked Up is one of the most surprising love stories I’ve seen. You have Allison played by Katherine Heigl is a busy reporter for E! And she has a crazy night on the town and runs into Ben Stone played by Seth Rogen a frugal. After a few drinks, they find themselves having a one night stand. Allison glad she doesn’t have to see him again until she realizes she is pregnant with his child. Now they are trying to date each other and learn about each other world their friends it leads to some pretty funny and very real situations and this film covers the entire pregnancy up to the birth but does their relationship? I won’t go any further because I want you guys to go out there and check it out it’s currently streaming on Hulu.
Ironically Seth returns in this blog with Zack and Miri make a porno. Now this one was written & directed by cult director Kevin “Silent Bob” Smith. Zack(Rogen) & Miri (Elizabeth Banks aka Rita Repulsa in new Power Rangers) are longtime friends that share an apartment together. Their finances are not in the best of shape and after hanging without with a gay porn star Played by Justin Long Zack has the Idea of making a porno and selling to make money. Yes, since this is a Kevin smith movie you will at least see 2 of his Clerk buddies in the movie but not as their characters. Okay so the raunchy level is extremely high on this one but so are the laughs. There are also a few moments of brutal honesty that you find in more comedies than any drama. Check it out it is currently streaming on Netflix.

Last but my personal favorite is Top Five. Out of my three selections, this one is the most recent. But it’s my favorite because it’s a meta film. Chris Rock plays Andre Allen a comedian who got super famous from movies who now want to do serious roles. Sounds familiar? (Cough Eddie Murphy) He is currently getting married to a reality show star played by Gabrielle Union who is the living embodiment of everything wrong with “reality” TV. As he goes throughout his day promoting his drama film about a slave revolt in Haiti he forced to do an interview with Chelsea Brown played by my personal bae Rosario Dawson. I love this movie. The cameos are awesome, Whoopi Goldberg & Tracy Morgan just to name a few of them. Also, this movie hits a major moment that I will tell you cause you most won’t get it. His movie about the Slave revolt bombs causes everyone went to see the latest Madea movie, now remember how Birth of a Nation came out in September and it was about a slave revolt but no one went to see it. The same week Madea’s Halloween came out ranked in $30million. Now how is this a love story you may ask? Well, you need to see it cause it's definitely in my top 3 it is currently streaming on Amazon prime. This is Amerime Media wishing everyone happy Valentine’s Day!

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 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

“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…
