Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 Review (Spoilers!!)

By Corey Floyd
Friday night I played no games and hauled ass to the theaters to see Guardians of the Galaxy volume 2. I was not disappointed. This was a great sequel. The movie starts with the gang all together fighting a huge tentacle monster and Baby Groot still voiced by Vin Diesel and now motion captured by him as well playing music and dancing around the battlefield while giving everyone else a moment to give an intro to the film almost like a 80’s sitcom. Of course, they are victorious and return to a race called the Sovereign a race that thrives on perfection and Gold. The Leader of their Planet is a woman named Ayesha.
Elizabeth Debicki (Victoria from “The Man from U.N.C.L.E”) plays a badass yet again. Meanwhile our Team of Heroes is still having a little trouble getting along Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper) purposely causes friction between himself and the team and Ayesha after he screws her over in a deal. She found herself with only one course of action, to shoot them out of the sky. In an aerial dogfight that looked and sounded like Galaga things were not looking good for our heroes then you see a guy flying by and in a wave of light all the ships were destroyed. I had to admit I thought it was the Silver Surfer for like 40 seconds. After a hazardous Crash landing we come to find out it’s not the Silver Surfer (DAMN you FOX) its EGO (Kurt Russell) and his assistant Mantis (Pom Klementiff) to reveal that his is StarLords father. Meanwhile on the other side of the Galaxy when run into Yondu played the awesome Michael Rooker. I want to take a second out to tip my hat to this guy. He has been the bad guy of bad guys since the start of his career, he is the best at being bad. We find him having a quiet existential moment when he sees another Ravanger as he goes to greet him we see Howard the Duck (Easter egg) and we see Sylvester Stallone. Yondu goes to greet him and we find out his name is Stakar Ogord and they are not friends. Come to find out that the Ravagers are like a fraternity with different chapters and Yondu’s chapter has been ex-communicated. Apparently, they have a rule about no kidnapping children which we know he has done because that is the origin of StarLord’s story.  At the same time his leadership is currently under scrutiny after his fellow space pirates feel that he has gone soft especially when it comes to Starlord. Meanwhile the team meets Starlord’s dad EGO played by SCI FI royalty Kurt Russell who regales them about how he been searching for his son and want to show him his origins. Ego is a living Planet, literally!

For the sake of the story he has the ability to make a humanoid form. This is where i stop myself. I’m not going thru the whole damn film you need to see it. But I will say that this film takes a very dark turn. There’s a mutiny among the Ravagers that leaves a lot of them fall to Yondu favorite tune. Which reminds you a lot of Xmen Quicksilver scene.

 We find out the EGO is a total savage him and Thanos should be friends besties even. We also get a glimpse at a very serious StarLord that was eyebrow raising to say the least.  Of course, there is
. The movie overall was without a doubt better than the original. We also get the best Stan Lee cameo to you that make me believe more that he might be the MCU watcher.  We see that Gamorra and Nebula eventually bury the hatchet after an all-out gun & fist fight of course. By the end of the movie we see a lot of seeds being planted and star cameos out the Ying Yang and gave a big nod to the original comic book Guardians as well as Doctor Strange. This was great action comedy from the MCU. Of course all of this is accompanied by a great soundtrack. Make sure you go out there and watch this one. Now it just means we are 2 movies away from the most anticipated film from Marvel Infinity War. Don’t forget! I AM GROOT!

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…
