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+

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…
