Dammit Trailers!!!!

By Corey Floyd

Okay, we all get really hype when we see a new Trailer for a movie right? Of course, we do. When something we have only been hearing about and seeing set photos of finally reveals itself in a trailer, you are ready to give them your money. Then over the next few months, they put out more trailers and everything is cool. Until they start giving away too much in the trailer and it just leaves me pissed off. I’m pretty sure I’m not alone here. Today I am going to talk about some of these offenders...
A few weeks ago, we were graced with an action-packed trailer to Kingsman: The Secret Circle. We see the Return of Eggsy and Roxy and Merlin. We see that their base has been destroyed. We also meet the US version of the team with Channing Tatum and Halle Berry as well as an intense chase scene and a dude with a Bionic arm.  

Just take my money!! We are in there September 22nd. Last five seconds of trailer ruined the suspense.  I will still see it but now I’m not as excited.
Our next offender Transformers: The Last Knight. I know a LOT of you already have grievances with this series. But I’m not gonna get into that, at least not today. In the first trailer, we are blessed with a monologue by Anthony Hopkins hinting that this war has been going for a long time. We are shown scenes of WW1 as well as Knight of the round table. We also see Mark Wahlberg doing whatever hell he does (probably working out) and we see that Josh Duhamel has returned to the fold with some military buddies. One of the final scenes of the trailer is Optimus Prime apologizing and attacking Bumblebee the photo up top is the last thing you see. I was sold do i expect a great story not really but you had me in suspense.
The next trailer revealed that he missed.
Why must you Hollywood people mess up?   You had people especially kids on the edge of their seats. Then today they put out a new trailer. Where they did it again!!! Look for yourself    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uD5IJvKcbEQ . I’m so frustrated because there are some studios out there that know what they are doing when it comes to making a good trailer without giving away good parts. MARVEL STUDIOS is a great example. I cannot recall a film where they give everything away in the trailer from Marvel. If you can hit that comment section. Somewhere in Hollywood there are people with no idea how to make a proper trailer that makes you want to see a movie that doesn’t give away a plot twist (Terminator Salvation). Or mislead the hell out of you (Suicide Squad). Even JJ Abrams knows how to do a proper movie trailer (even if Star Wars 7 was just episode 4 all over again). What happen to being a little mysterious like Paranormal Activity. Don’t do a misleading trailer like Godzilla when you have Cloverfield. Don’t make a trailer look like a comedy when it’s actually a drama. Studios stop being scared and showing everything in a trailer (Amazing Spiderman 2, Lucy) to the point that seeing the actual movie is a chore.  You must find balance. That’s it for me today I will leave you with a clue about my next movie review, it also happens to be a great example of a movie trailer too.

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…
