Pirates 5 ... Meh (Spoiler Alert)


By Corey Floyd

Last week I sat down and watched the latest Pirates of the Caribbean film: Dead men tell no tales.  After the last movie was just plain boring I have been on the fence about this one. What kept my attention was the movies antagonist Captain Salazar played by Javier Bardem( No Country for old men & Skyfall).

Know he plays a ghost with a very big chip on his shoulder. He after Jack for killing him years ago. Know Jack could avoid him by just staying on land cause ghost can only return to land once every ten years. If you remember the rules from the original Trilogy. Of course, there's a catch if he finds the Triton of the ocean he can go anywhere. Of course, Johnny Depp has returned as Captain Jack Sparrow. Nothing new to his character at all.  You also meet Henry Turner Will & Elizabeth’s, son. They also have a cameo in the movie. Which is nice. Oh yeah, Barbosa is in the movie too. I apologize to you guys cause I wasn’t feeling it. It is an improvement from the last one but I don't care enough about any of the characters except for Barbossa.
  
Even then at the end of the movie he dies. Oops!! Well, I did say spoiler alert. Plus you find out he has a daughter who just happens to be on this adventure with them the whole time.This movie just didn’t do anything for me. In my opinion, they should have just left it at three. They told several complete stories, you saw great character arcs and Barbossa and Davey Jones are far better antagonists than Salazar and Blackbeard. Plus the Visual effects were just okay.

Davey Jones was way more intimidating and actually had some depth in comparison to Salazar plus his look is iconic in my eyes they took every nasty about the bottom of the ocean and put it in on being.
Lets keep it real look at this and tell me Jones wasn’t the better bad guy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vp1rS_UAvjs . Sorry this was a Bad movie I get it we love Johnny Depp. The man gave us gold for years and Never got a Oscar for it so now he is just hamming it up hardcore now. But maybe I should look at the writers too. One writer Terry Rossio has been credited in all 5 movies but it's mainly for character creation and the screenplay was written by Jeff Nathanson. Who has not been on any good films besides Catch Me If You Can. The other films were quite sketchy as well such as , Indiana Jones Crystal SKULL, Speed 2 , Rush Hour 3 , and The Tower Heist. Sadly he has already been hired to write the next POTC movie so get ready for more of the same. Not me tho this is getting a F from me. Save your money watch Wonder Woman and if you don’t see  I will review it Thursday. Meanwhile POTC: Dead men tell no tales was DOA.

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…
