WHAT'S ON THE HORIZON?

By Corey Floyd
Over the past few weeks, we have been bombarded with movie trailers. There is no doubt that each of them will be rolling in dough, but it makes me think well what’s next? I know there’s no trailer for it yet but I know it’s coming. After this, you will too. If you don’t know what’s going on in our cover photo let me fill you in. These are just a few of the new faces in the next Kingsman movie. Halle Berry, Channing Tatum, and recent recipient of a star on the walk of fame Jeff Bridges. They gave us a teaser trailer yesterday if you haven’t seen it yet https://youtu.be/93LSJWrL8DY there ya go. No idea what the story is but i do know these three stars are part of an American group called the Statesman. I really enjoyed the first movie I’m excited to see what next.

Back in 2013, Guillermo Del Toro gave us a simple childhood fantasy of giant robots fighting giant monsters and looking cool while doing it in Pacific Rim. It’s been four years and in 2018 it be back. The film is called Pacific Rim: Uprising. Del Toro wrote and produced but will not be directing. Steven DeKnight will be directing. This will be his first theatrical outing as a director. But his career in television does give me confidence. He has been an executive producer on Smallville, Dollhouse (which was criminally underrated), and a season a Netflix’s Daredevil. Now Charlie Hunnam will not be returning but we will have John Boyega (Star Wars 7&*8) and Scott Eastwood (Suicide Squad) as main characters. I think as long as we have more badass robots fighting more giant monsters everything will be ok. 

Last but not Tomb Raider. A few years ago a reboot to the Tomb Raider game franchise landed giving us a younger Croft and a grittier world. Needless to say, it was a hit. After putting out 2 hit games the movie studios started to think “hey a reboot could work here too”. Our new Lara Croft is being played by Alicia Vikander. This 2016 Academy Award winner will be playing the lead.First time I saw her was in Ex- Machina as Ava and I loved her in the man from U.N.C.L.E. What worries me more than anything is the director and writer. Director Roar Uthaug does not have many movies under his belt. His only successful I heard of is The Wave it had a budget of 6.1 million and grossed 11.5 so I guess that’s good, it also holds an 83% on Rotten Tomatoes so maybe he has the skill. The writer Geneva Robertson-Dworet only has one credited piece known and it was a short film. Meanwhile, they have been hired to write several big name productions in the future such as Gotham City Sirens, Dungeons and Dragons (eyes roll),  Sherlock Holmes 3 and M.A.S.K, not the green CGI mask I mean

. I Think I just lost confidence in video game movies again. But you never know then again remember the G.I JOE movies.

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…
