BATMAN & Harley!! Review (A few spoilers)



By Corey Floyd

While the DCEU is trying to get their act together their animated movies have always been a hit. They have been dark, violent, gritty film series. Recently they lightened up with an old school Batman & Robin DVD featuring the Adam West. Then I saw a trailer for Batman and Harley.

I got very excited the animation style was a homage to the Batman: Animated series which is also celebrating it’s 25th Anniversary this year. Wasn’t sure if this was gonna be a serious romp or not but I was ready nonetheless. Also, everyone loves Harley we can’t get enough of her. So why not do a feature where she works with the dark knight in her own special way  

The movie Villians Poison Ivy & Floronic Man (Walmart brand Swamp Thing) trying to turn the entire world inhabitants into a plant Hybrid. Batman and Nightwing are on the case and realize they will need Harley’s help since they are longtime friends and a formidable team when they worked together.

This feature had its fair share of meta jokes. Nightwing finds Harley working at a restaurant where the female servers are dressed as scantily clad villains and heroes and

of course she dresses as …………………..herself.

 There was also a great fight scene between her and Nightwing which she won. What followed was what I can only describe as a 50shades of Harley between her and Nightwing.  
Despite some very adult scenes here and there, this was a fun cartoon. It also had a great scene that played back to some Golden and Silver age villains at a bar where Harley graced us with a musical number. There also a message about climate change and taking care of the environment. To be honest I felt like Bernie Sanders was about to show up.   Related image Kevin Conroy returned as the voice of the bat and Loren Lester as Nightwing / Robin. We had a different Harley this time Melissa Rauch played her voice. Which fits perfectly since she is Bernadette on THE BIG BANG THEORY  here’s a sample https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GyAkev_nv0A . It was an awkwardly funny movie. It felt more like one of those serious/funny
episodes from their last season.

Was it odd? Yes. Was it funny? Yes. Will I watch it again? Hell YES!! make sure you go out and grab your copy for your collection. I have to give this movie an A. It gave me something new from the material that I already know about. It was also very funny which was unexpected also the after credit scene I was done. Here a clue: WIPEOUT

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…
