Reboots that should happen!!!




By Corey Floyd

Well, it’s that time again. Time to talk about reboots. I know we don’t like them as a whole but if done right you can have something great a few of these shows or movies. The following have been canceled or bombed at the box office due to someone dropping the ball and hopefully someone can pick it up.

Black Dynamite! Was only on Adult Swim for 2 seasons. The show is based on a movie starring Michael Jai White parodying blaxploitation films of the 70’s. The cartoon as an extension of that. Bringing back the cast of the film to play themselves in animated form. It was a very funny series but I don’t think the humor fell on a lot of people. The show was definitely was targeting a black audience which may have had a lot of it humor lost on people who don't know the culture. It was also not slotted well in conjunction with other shows such as.

It’s content also could get very offensive. They did not hold back when it came it making fun of celebrities. From Michael Jackson being an Alien drugged up Elvis Presley.

 Maybe they can blast the team into the present and have new adventures. Just a thought.

Drawn Together was the ultimate offensive experiment. The took MTV’s “real world” premise and made it a cartoon. They took seven cartoon types and parodied them to an extreme. For example, Princess Clara is a Disney Princess type. She sings songs and animals come out of the woodwork. But here’s the deal she’s a homophobic racist.

There an Asian battle card monster named LING LING. He is the ultimate Asian stereotype that even comes with his own language.

Both are voiced by the legendary Tara Strong.

 That’s just a sample of what type of savagery and talent that was behind this show. It was short lived due to their barrier-breaking 4th wall shattering content that even comedy central executives believe they went too far. I would like to see the return of this show due to the new cartoons that are out that can be made fun of. From my little pony to Steven Universe and to the world of Anime. Here a clip to give you a better clue https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YU_O1TBu3Cw . I would love for this to come back.  Just think of the cameos.

Boondocks needs to come back.But we need  Aaron  McGruder back at the helm as head writer. When it was announced that he was not the writer for the 4th season as a fan I was disheartened but I had hope. The first episode was kinda funny.

Throwing a mean left hook at the music industry that has been about more gossip than substance. The rest of the season came off mean-spirited and unfunny. Rodney Barnes & Angela Nissel two producers decided they could write this show.
 
It was just awful. As a matter of fact, there’s an episode that ran a GOOD TIMES gag to the point it wasn’t funny. To be honest, it wasn’t that funny, to begin with. If you check out youtube they have been the season for streams of the Boondocks on for the last 3 weeks so hopefully, you see it.  Somehow Drawn Together a show written by white guys ( not that there is anything wrong with that )did the joke so much better see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ESx1rGlai0Q .

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…
