Who needs a reboot? Part 2


By Corey Floyd


Reboots?!  Whether or not you like them they are here and show no sign of leaving. If you have been following me you should recall I’ve talked about this before. You haven’t seen that one? Well http://amerimemedia.blogspot.com/2017/02/who-needs-reboot-part-1.html?view=magazine. Your back? Great, anyway i am going to continue on this journey down reboot road because there are a few films that could definitely use a fresh coat of paint for a new audience. I think these titles could definitely do the trick.  

It has been 13 years since we have seen Blade. No, I do not count that failed attempt at a TV show with Sticky Fingers as Blade (shudders). When the first Blade movie came out in 1998 we most of us have no idea it was a comic book movie as well as its sequel and Wesley Snipes flourished as the vicious anti-hero. Recently the rights of the character have returned to Marvel but there's no talk about what they are doing with him. Last year they added Ghost Rider to Agents of Shield and it worked out really well. But I don’t think that would do him Justice. I also don’t believe that movies would be in his future either. The first 2 films were very dark, violent, sexual, and extremely Bloody. He is the type of character you cannot water down for the current MCU. This makes me want to see the show as a Netflix original series. This could work they don’t have to abandon their style. Keep it as violent as it was before plus a team up with Daredevil sounds awesome in my head. But at 54 I don’t think Snipes will be up to working at today’s pace. I could be wrong.
   

Recently Mortal Kombat had an online series that was very good. Of course, it was overshadowed by the stellar game series. But the series showed that it can be done right if you get the right people. There has been talk around the industry that someone has been writing a script but I haven’t found anything concrete. Just the name Dave Callaham. He wrote the Expendables and DOOM (shudders). Hopefully, that is just a rumor. But seriously the web series gave a great story and better fight choreography than Iron Fist. In the right hands, you can make this a respectable film franchise. I could see Lions Gate producing it. Think The Raid meets Saw. Flawless Victory Indeed.


 Yup! I said it The Mask. It has been 23 years since the surprise box office hit has been in theaters. (No Son of Mask does not count!!) Clearly, in the right hands, you can have a hit. This time around I think it’s time to bring the story back to its ultra-violent roots. As much as I and the rest of the world enjoyed the more family oriented Mask of old I’ve been itching to see the real Mask from the comics. Believe it or not, the differences are not that extreme just think of a Mask scene from the movie but at the end of his antics, the person is dead. I can see Neil Patrick Harris as Stanley Ipkiss or Eddie Redmayne (Fantastic Beasts). Since he has the loveable face and he has played very lovable characters as of late it would be an interesting turn . If the follow the narrative of the comic. You're in for a completely different story

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…
