Who needs A reboot? Part 1

Amerime Media

By Corey Floyd

Reboots there’s been a lot of them, right? Spider-Man has been rebooted 3 times in fifteen years each one an improvement. On the other hand, we had Fantastic Four which wasn’t terrible, it was good enough to get a sequel that was just awful. It was rebooted into the worst film of 2015 it was a failure on several fronts. It would be a stretch to even call it watchable.  With the Power Rangers reboot coming our way there are a few movies.  I think should have a proper facelift. 

Tank Girl you’re up first! A British comic book that started in 1988 about a post-apocalyptic world where water is so rare is used as currency there's a heroine named Rebecca who becomes a fighter against the evil corporation holding the world’s water for power and she drives a crazy looking tank. It was adapted for film in 1995. It was a disaster only grossing a little over five million with a budget of 25 million. Now that we are living in a time where female comic book characters need to come in all shapes and sizes I feel like this would be a great addition to the times. Plus, with the comics vulgarity and violence, we could be looking at a female response to Deadpool.  I’m not sure but director  George Miller could do. Actress wise this is gonna sound weird or at least it does to me but it’s between Miley Cyrus, Yolandi from Die Antwood (Chappie) or Kate McKinnon (SNL).

Second Robocop. I know they did that already. But did they? That was something but it was not Robocop. I’m not sure what that was.  But it was not a Sci-Fi action. It was a political drama with action. What the hell was Samuel Jackson wearing on his head! If you really think about it every movie post Pulp Fiction if he has a hairpiece the movie is odd and hard to watch Formula 51, Jumper, The Man, Robocop. I think they need to start back to the basics just update the material. Bring back the weird commercials that are so close to being accurate it’s scary, practical effects (mainly blood splatters) bring that back keep it rated R don’t water it down. I have no idea for actors but I would have Tim Miller direct.

This will be part of a series of blogs I will drop throughout the year so if you have an idea for a reboot drop us a line.

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.
1 Scarecrow:
The man that induces fear, Dr. Ichbod Crane this is one sick puppy Just never hope you have to see him for a psych evaluation. He will find out what you fear most and use his fear toxin make you do his bidding or meet your worst nightmare. He has even sent…

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…
