Chilling Adventures of Sabrina part 1 (Review)



 Around this time last year, Netflix said they were doing a new Sabrina The Teenage Witch series. I was thinking… cool we need a new funny Sabrina show with a new talking cat and fun Aunts.

Then I saw that first trailer. Whoa!
I didn’t think this was going to be a fun romp into magic. After further scrutiny, I found that It is actually based on a Comic book with a much darker tone. This is not for the little kids!! This is a 16+ show so please don't let the younglings watch.
Both shows start the same it's almost her 16th birthday and she needs to make a choice of staying in school with mortals or going to school with other witches and learn her craft. But in this case, she has to give her soul to Lucifer literally. Let me break down the Spellman clan with a little help from the sorting hat. First, there's Aunt Zelda old witch and waspy witch very high brow aka Slytherin house.


Then we have her sister Heilda. The sweet one always nice and friendly. The opposite of her sister. That's why they get along for the most part. Even when she's mad she still uses restraint and kindness.
                                                             Hufflepuff Cleary.


Remember Salem the wisecracking cat? Well in this series he's just a familiar that doesn't talk. All the quips go to Ambrose Spellman. But the Salem of the old series does share something with Ambrose. A fitting punishment, he's not a cat but he has been stuck at the Spellman estate for 75 years due to a few bad choices. He helps where he can, gives good advice and is always ready to say I told you so.
                                                              Hello Ravenclaw!!!


Then we have Sabrina. But she’s no Gryffindor. She's not even sure if she wants to be a witch. Especially if it means selling your soul and leaving your friends behind. She would then go to a new school and make new friends or enemies 
. It gives a fresher angle to the double life conundrum that has plagued a lot of superhero characters over the years. It's not the whole season it's only part 1 and I'm clamoring for more. I'm also waiting for the inevitable crossover with Riverdale on the CW which is already dropping a hint of magic in the air. Sorry guys I don't want to go into details of the show cause it's not even done yet. But It's something worth watching. If you want a creepy good time with interesting characters and good visual effects both practical and CGI this is right up that alley. But please remember this IS NOT THE SABRINA YOU REMEMBER!!!!  If you can handle something new I'm sure you'll love it.

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…

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…

Top 10 masks in comics by Braheim Comic Boss Gibbs

Ok, Edna, I understand why no capes easy to grab, villains can choke a hero out with his own cape, and don’t get me started on the fashion aspect of them they’re so Detective Comics am I right?  But, what about mask they definitely make more sense. With just eye covers your whole secret identity is safe from prying bad guys that want to do bad things. So you can continue taking the kids to soccer practice or living you billionaire playboy lifestyle. I’m looking at you, Bruce, Tony, and T'challa. Now that we’ve established that mask is essential to longevity in the superhero gig here are my top ten masks in comics. These mask strike fear or annoyance in everyone they come across friend and foe. In no particular order.
