Hellboy Reboot REALLY!!

By Corey Floyd
Just about three months ago Lionsgate made it very clear that there would not be a third installment to the much loved Hellboy franchise with Ron Perlman as a demon with a big red hand. The two original movies total gross 262 million but their combined budget were around 145 million. The profit margin isn't what the studio status quo for comic book movies should be making, but over the years the fanbase for it grew. Even had some very good animated DVD films starring the same cast from the film.
The reason I am writing this is because I feel like there was a great deal of disrespect given to Perlman and Del toro. I think Del Toro is a very special breed when it comes to directing visual wonders. It could be a complex story like Pan's’ Labyrinth or simple robot vs Kaiju fight like Pacific Rim he does it seamlessly. Oh well, let’s say hello to our new Hellboy.
Meet David Harbour look familiar? He’s on the 80’s nostalgia hit Stranger Things as Sheriff Hopper. Well get ready for him to look a lot like this 
Here’s where things get interesting. The director is Neil Marshall. Neil Marshall has had a lackluster run at the box office. He was the director behind flops such as Doomsday, Centurion, and Dog Soldiers. His only box office success was The Descent and since it had a Budget of only 3.5 million I guess the only place you can go is up. He was missing from the scene from 2010-2014. He started to reappear but directing Television episodes of some very popular series Game of Thrones, Constantine, and Westworld. I guess they think he is ready to do a film again. I think he should stay in his TV lane. Oh, and the writers does not give me overall confidence.  Now the shining light of the Team is Mike Mignola the creator of Hellboy so that’s good, but here’s where things get suspicious. Andrew Cosby has only written for a few shows on the SciFi channel Eureka and Haunted which were okay shows not great. Christopher Golden has written for several unsuccessful Buffy the Vampire video games (I remember them so awful). The only redeeming quality is two of the producers worked on Del Toros Version. Recently they have called the movie Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen and they have made it very clear that it will be rated R. 

I feel like they are insulting Del Toro again as If he doesn’t do rated R. The studio made him reshoot several scenes and tone down the violence because the original cut was rated R.
Have they seen Blade 1 & 2? It's the type of thing that could work in a TV reboot. 

If you don’t know what I’m talking about go here http://amerimemedia.blogspot.com/2017/04/who-needs-reboot-part-2.html?view=flipcard . I’m just saying that things don’t look too good right now for HB. All i can say now is I’m sorry to Guillermo and Ron this is on us this time, we didn’t know how good we had it.

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…
