Over the last dozen years, we have seen a surge of Superhero movies and for the most part things are going pretty well. It would be better but you know DCEU can’t figure things out yet. But one thing stayed constant. Video game movies suck! Except for the first Resident Evil movie they have all sucked. At least until Assassins Creed came out. Despite popular belief this was a good movie. See here . There were some Independent Halo films. Forward Unto Dawn gets a lot of praise for its storytelling and Halo Nightfall Introduces us to Mike Colter who some of yall know as Luke Cage. Both were not bad they were just lacking the Big Budget overtop action that we need plus Master Chief.

There is already a very strong fan base worldwide. The animated feature Halo Legends displays Halo stories animated several different ways by teams from around the world much like the Animatrix from the early 2000’s. That further proves that this game series has a devoted cult following.
They want to make it so bad. Above you is a scene from Edge of Tomorrow. These are the power suits they use in the film in action you get a Halo vibe from them. Matter of fact here was the original concept art for the armor it might look familiar.
The crazy thing is we were very close to having Halo movie in 2009 with Peter Jackson at the Helm. No one to this day knows exactly what happened. They even found a good director Neil Blomkamp. Who had already made a short Halo film on his that rocked YouTube hard. But of course, there’s always something. Before a budget could be discussed for the project it was canned. Studio politics were to blame. Lucky Peter saw talent in Neil and gave him a chance anyway that’s how we got District 9 and Chappie. But where does the leave the Master Chief? Well I checked the IMDB on Halo and there not much there sad to say. There no release date there are no actors, producers, or a director. But there are two writers, Stuart Beattie and Alex Garland. Stuart Beattie is known for character and story writing for the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra. Alex Garland is known for writing Screenplays such as Ex- Machina, Dredd and 28 Days Later. This is a very interesting duo with their names attached to a diamond that is currently coal. I will remain optimistic.  If comic book movies are being taken seriously video games should be the next move.  I just don’t want it to be GAME OVER before it starts.

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…
