XX movie review (Spoilers)




By Corey Floyd

Title: horizontal line


Hey, guys if you remember some time ago I told you guys about as an upcoming movie that was an anthology series where female directors directed all the stories. The trailer looked very promising. It came out in limited release but I was determined to check it out.  I don’t know how to put this but this was not a good start for the year.
I Honestly feel bad about doing this but they gave me no choice. Over the last few years we have been hit up by anthology horror movies and so far, it has not been bad VHS, Tales of Halloween, Christmas Horror Story, and things have been good. So I thought I would get more of the same or maybe a lil extra since one of the directors has some good movies under her belt.
Karyn Kasuma most known for directing Jennifer's Body did a good job with her contribution “Her only living son” which was about her troubled son who is fighting his inner demons while wondering about his biological father. When he turns 18 he realizes that his father is the Devil the actual Devil and he appears and the room gets darks it's the only good story in the film. One is a comedy about a wife hiding her dead husband. Who she didn’t even kill it was an accidental overdose. She spends the rest of the piece trying to hide the body and it's comical than suspenseful and she decides to pay off the entertainment guy to give her his panda suit so she can prop him up in a chair during the party. It’s not scary it’s not even funny.
Then there was a piece about a road trip that made a pit stop on Native American land that turned one of them into a bloodthirsty creature. I’ve seen more creativity In an episode of Goosebumps. The actors in each piece did a good job the effects work was solid nothing to call home about but the storytelling is what killed it for me. The only thing this movie is good for is killing time.

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…
