The Award Goes To… Deadpool?!

by Corey Floyd


It’s that special time of year in Hollywood where they announce the nominees for

the Golden Globes. This is the playoffs in Hollywood and the winners here mostly go on to

the Academy Awards. So surprise surprise when I heard Deadpool was up for best picture

in a comedy or musical and Ryan Reynolds has been nominated for best actor in a comedy

or musical. This is a very big deal. In my opinion this has definitely shaken up the comic

book movie bubble.

This the first big nomination for a comic book movie that is not about visual effects. I don’t

count Heath Ledger Oscar for the Joker cause they already announced he was gonna get it

before the show because he died. For years comic book movies have only been shoe in for

visual effects but now a movie has passed that threshold and has been nominated for best

picture and on top of that the lead is up for best actor. This is also a huge deal for 20th

Century Fox who has been on the losing side of the Marvel war with shaky story lines and

and average movie earnings from the last few X-Men films and the disaster of a Reboot for

the Fantastic Four. Which bring me to another point this nomination should be a big

wakeup call to Fox movie executives to not meddle with the creative process of these films.

During production of Deadpool there were constant stories floating around about

executives trying to add their two cents to the creative process. Usually causing disarray

confusion and ending in a terrible film Fantastic 4 for example. The Director Tim Miller,

writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick and Reynold stood their ground. Ironically that

probably what lead them to just a 58 million dollar budget but when life give you lemons

you make 783 million dollar profit. This Tim Miller first big nomination from his first full

length feature film. He is most commonly know in the gaming community for directing

cutscenes for games like Mass Effect and a few short animated films. He went from the

minor to the big leagues fast and knocked it out of the park. Hopefully this nomination can

bring him and Reynolds back on the same page since he’s not directing Deadpool 2 due to

some unknown issue between him and Reynolds Maybe he can reconcile knowing that

they made history again. But that’s Hopeful thinking.

This is a Huge win just being nominated for Reynolds who has been working on this

film for years in development hell. The funny part about his performance in the movie is if

you have ever seen a comedy with Reynolds in it you see that nothing much has changed

since 2 Guys a Girl and a Pizza Place. Seriously look at all of his comedic roles up to

Deadpool and you will agree. The only difference is how much money it made. But Kudos

all the same Reynolds.His category does have some heavy hitters he’s going against Jonah

Hill, Colin Farrell, Hugh Grant and Ryan Gosling. Im cheering for the Merc with the Mouth. I

he does win I would love to see him accept his award like this.

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…

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.

KIN (movie review) by Corey Floyd

I saw the trailer for KIN a while back. It had my curiosity. Black kid finds a gun that looks like it's from a Decepticon. He tries to protect his family... Hey, it looks better than the robot dog movie that you're already ignoring for obvious reasons. Anyway, I was lucky enough to see a screener of the film the other night and drank a few red bulls so I could bring a review to you.
Eli is a young ambitious kid who is mourning the death of his mom. While salvaging the abandoned buildings of Detroit he finds an Alien Weapon. Naturally, he keeps it secret from his strict blue-collar dad, played by Dennis Quaid. Quaid tries to instill values into his youngest son (Eli) while his eldest son Jimmy returns home from prison. Jimmy can't be apart of the family until he repays his prison debt to the local crime boss Taylor Balick, played by James Franco.
I don't wanna give too much of the plot away... sorry. But... I can say that the movie is worthy of your hard earned dollars. T…
