XX movie review (Spoilers)




By Corey Floyd

Title: horizontal line


Hey, guys if you remember some time ago I told you guys about as an upcoming movie that was an anthology series where female directors directed all the stories. The trailer looked very promising. It came out in limited release but I was determined to check it out.  I don’t know how to put this but this was not a good start for the year.
I Honestly feel bad about doing this but they gave me no choice. Over the last few years we have been hit up by anthology horror movies and so far, it has not been bad VHS, Tales of Halloween, Christmas Horror Story, and things have been good. So I thought I would get more of the same or maybe a lil extra since one of the directors has some good movies under her belt.
Karyn Kasuma most known for directing Jennifer's Body did a good job with her contribution “Her only living son” which was about her troubled son who is fighting his inner demons while wondering about his biological father. When he turns 18 he realizes that his father is the Devil the actual Devil and he appears and the room gets darks it's the only good story in the film. One is a comedy about a wife hiding her dead husband. Who she didn’t even kill it was an accidental overdose. She spends the rest of the piece trying to hide the body and it's comical than suspenseful and she decides to pay off the entertainment guy to give her his panda suit so she can prop him up in a chair during the party. It’s not scary it’s not even funny.
Then there was a piece about a road trip that made a pit stop on Native American land that turned one of them into a bloodthirsty creature. I’ve seen more creativity In an episode of Goosebumps. The actors in each piece did a good job the effects work was solid nothing to call home about but the storytelling is what killed it for me. The only thing this movie is good for is killing time.

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…
