Dammit Trailers!!!!

By Corey Floyd

Okay, we all get really hype when we see a new Trailer for a movie right? Of course, we do. When something we have only been hearing about and seeing set photos of finally reveals itself in a trailer, you are ready to give them your money. Then over the next few months, they put out more trailers and everything is cool. Until they start giving away too much in the trailer and it just leaves me pissed off. I’m pretty sure I’m not alone here. Today I am going to talk about some of these offenders...
A few weeks ago, we were graced with an action-packed trailer to Kingsman: The Secret Circle. We see the Return of Eggsy and Roxy and Merlin. We see that their base has been destroyed. We also meet the US version of the team with Channing Tatum and Halle Berry as well as an intense chase scene and a dude with a Bionic arm.  

Just take my money!! We are in there September 22nd. Last five seconds of trailer ruined the suspense.  I will still see it but now I’m not as excited.
Our next offender Transformers: The Last Knight. I know a LOT of you already have grievances with this series. But I’m not gonna get into that, at least not today. In the first trailer, we are blessed with a monologue by Anthony Hopkins hinting that this war has been going for a long time. We are shown scenes of WW1 as well as Knight of the round table. We also see Mark Wahlberg doing whatever hell he does (probably working out) and we see that Josh Duhamel has returned to the fold with some military buddies. One of the final scenes of the trailer is Optimus Prime apologizing and attacking Bumblebee the photo up top is the last thing you see. I was sold do i expect a great story not really but you had me in suspense.
The next trailer revealed that he missed.
Why must you Hollywood people mess up?   You had people especially kids on the edge of their seats. Then today they put out a new trailer. Where they did it again!!! Look for yourself    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uD5IJvKcbEQ . I’m so frustrated because there are some studios out there that know what they are doing when it comes to making a good trailer without giving away good parts. MARVEL STUDIOS is a great example. I cannot recall a film where they give everything away in the trailer from Marvel. If you can hit that comment section. Somewhere in Hollywood there are people with no idea how to make a proper trailer that makes you want to see a movie that doesn’t give away a plot twist (Terminator Salvation). Or mislead the hell out of you (Suicide Squad). Even JJ Abrams knows how to do a proper movie trailer (even if Star Wars 7 was just episode 4 all over again). What happen to being a little mysterious like Paranormal Activity. Don’t do a misleading trailer like Godzilla when you have Cloverfield. Don’t make a trailer look like a comedy when it’s actually a drama. Studios stop being scared and showing everything in a trailer (Amazing Spiderman 2, Lucy) to the point that seeing the actual movie is a chore.  You must find balance. That’s it for me today I will leave you with a clue about my next movie review, it also happens to be a great example of a movie trailer too.

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…
