Assassin's Creed was a good movie!!


By Corey Floyd


Back in the final months of 2016 Assassin’s Creed was released in theaters. Now I must admit I did not go and see it theaters despite the good trailers that were all over the place. It was still a movie based off a video game. We have seen repeatedly that video games and Hollywood don’t mix. 

Let’s look at few House of the Dead, Super Mario, BloodRayne and Resident Evil all horrible films. So naturally I fed into the stigma and I wasn’t alone the movie made 240 million on a 125 budget technically a success but it has a 17% on the “sacred” Rotten Tomatoes website.

 Last week I finally sat down and watched the film for myself. I enjoyed it. First of all, you have Michael Fassbinder as the main character.  HE DOESN’T DO BAD MOVIES!!! I double checked. It was very true to what we experience in the first several games but it covered the Spanish Inquisition. 

The animus in the film made more sense than the ones in the game. The animus in the film actually moved around with the patient and allowed them to actually move they way they were moving in the memory sequence. It ties into the game seamlessly. I don’t want to give it away but I do urge people to watch this film. I understand how the subgenre has been ran through the mud in the past but this gives new hope that it can be done properly.

 Besides ………… they are doing a sequel to the film and I’m looking forward to it. If you’re a fan of the series you’re a fan of the film this I guarantee. Go out grab a copy.  Grade B+

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…

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…

Top 10 masks in comics by Braheim Comic Boss Gibbs

Ok, Edna, I understand why no capes easy to grab, villains can choke a hero out with his own cape, and don’t get me started on the fashion aspect of them they’re so Detective Comics am I right?  But, what about mask they definitely make more sense. With just eye covers your whole secret identity is safe from prying bad guys that want to do bad things. So you can continue taking the kids to soccer practice or living you billionaire playboy lifestyle. I’m looking at you, Bruce, Tony, and T'challa. Now that we’ve established that mask is essential to longevity in the superhero gig here are my top ten masks in comics. These mask strike fear or annoyance in everyone they come across friend and foe. In no particular order.
