WHY NO HALO MOVIE!?

By Corey Floyd


Over the last dozen years, we have seen a surge of Superhero movies and for the most part things are going pretty well. It would be better but you know DCEU can’t figure things out yet. But one thing stayed constant. Video game movies suck! Except for the first Resident Evil movie they have all sucked. At least until Assassins Creed came out. Despite popular belief this was a good movie. See here http://amerimemedia.blogspot.com/2017/03/assassins-creed-was-good-movie.html?view=magazine . There were some Independent Halo films. Forward Unto Dawn gets a lot of praise for its storytelling and Halo Nightfall Introduces us to Mike Colter who some of yall know as Luke Cage. Both were not bad they were just lacking the Big Budget overtop action that we need plus Master Chief.

There is already a very strong fan base worldwide. The animated feature Halo Legends displays Halo stories animated several different ways by teams from around the world much like the Animatrix from the early 2000’s. That further proves that this game series has a devoted cult following.
They want to make it so bad. Above you is a scene from Edge of Tomorrow. These are the power suits they use in the film in action you get a Halo vibe from them. Matter of fact here was the original concept art for the armor it might look familiar.
The crazy thing is we were very close to having Halo movie in 2009 with Peter Jackson at the Helm. No one to this day knows exactly what happened. They even found a good director Neil Blomkamp. Who had already made a short Halo film on his that rocked YouTube hard. But of course, there’s always something. Before a budget could be discussed for the project it was canned. Studio politics were to blame. Lucky Peter saw talent in Neil and gave him a chance anyway that’s how we got District 9 and Chappie. But where does the leave the Master Chief? Well I checked the IMDB on Halo and there not much there sad to say. There no release date there are no actors, producers, or a director. But there are two writers, Stuart Beattie and Alex Garland. Stuart Beattie is known for character and story writing for the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra. Alex Garland is known for writing Screenplays such as Ex- Machina, Dredd and 28 Days Later. This is a very interesting duo with their names attached to a diamond that is currently coal. I will remain optimistic.  If comic book movies are being taken seriously video games should be the next move.  I just don’t want it to be GAME OVER before it starts.

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…
