Who needs A reboot? Part 1

Amerime Media

By Corey Floyd

Reboots there’s been a lot of them, right? Spider-Man has been rebooted 3 times in fifteen years each one an improvement. On the other hand, we had Fantastic Four which wasn’t terrible, it was good enough to get a sequel that was just awful. It was rebooted into the worst film of 2015 it was a failure on several fronts. It would be a stretch to even call it watchable.  With the Power Rangers reboot coming our way there are a few movies.  I think should have a proper facelift. 

Tank Girl you’re up first! A British comic book that started in 1988 about a post-apocalyptic world where water is so rare is used as currency there's a heroine named Rebecca who becomes a fighter against the evil corporation holding the world’s water for power and she drives a crazy looking tank. It was adapted for film in 1995. It was a disaster only grossing a little over five million with a budget of 25 million. Now that we are living in a time where female comic book characters need to come in all shapes and sizes I feel like this would be a great addition to the times. Plus, with the comics vulgarity and violence, we could be looking at a female response to Deadpool.  I’m not sure but director  George Miller could do. Actress wise this is gonna sound weird or at least it does to me but it’s between Miley Cyrus, Yolandi from Die Antwood (Chappie) or Kate McKinnon (SNL).

Second Robocop. I know they did that already. But did they? That was something but it was not Robocop. I’m not sure what that was.  But it was not a Sci-Fi action. It was a political drama with action. What the hell was Samuel Jackson wearing on his head! If you really think about it every movie post Pulp Fiction if he has a hairpiece the movie is odd and hard to watch Formula 51, Jumper, The Man, Robocop. I think they need to start back to the basics just update the material. Bring back the weird commercials that are so close to being accurate it’s scary, practical effects (mainly blood splatters) bring that back keep it rated R don’t water it down. I have no idea for actors but I would have Tim Miller direct.

This will be part of a series of blogs I will drop throughout the year so if you have an idea for a reboot drop us a line.

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…

A New Def Jam game maybe? Roster Ideas by Corey Floyd

over the past month or so DefJam has been throwing some hints that they might make another fighting game. About two console generations ago (ps2, Xbox, GC) there was a game from EA BIG called Def Jam Vendetta. It was a wrestling style game but with hip-hop artists. DMX would literally kick your ass. Redman & Method Man was the best (and still are) tag team ever. It was a hit !! The follow-up fight for NY was a great sequel with even more artists in fighting form. Then the third one was garbage, hot garbage simmering in garbage juice. It bombed hard. Now it looks like we might get another. Bosslogic even came up with a title. Today I'm gonna come up with who should be in it. Some old, some new, some more gals, and some new dudes.


1. Missy Elliot Missy Elliot has been in the game for a long time. Somehow despite all of her hits, she has never been given the title of queen of hip-hop. In the game, she could be the queen of mean. Give her a footing style that matches her out of thi…

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…
