BATMAN & Harley!! Review (A few spoilers)



By Corey Floyd

While the DCEU is trying to get their act together their animated movies have always been a hit. They have been dark, violent, gritty film series. Recently they lightened up with an old school Batman & Robin DVD featuring the Adam West. Then I saw a trailer for Batman and Harley.

I got very excited the animation style was a homage to the Batman: Animated series which is also celebrating it’s 25th Anniversary this year. Wasn’t sure if this was gonna be a serious romp or not but I was ready nonetheless. Also, everyone loves Harley we can’t get enough of her. So why not do a feature where she works with the dark knight in her own special way  

The movie Villians Poison Ivy & Floronic Man (Walmart brand Swamp Thing) trying to turn the entire world inhabitants into a plant Hybrid. Batman and Nightwing are on the case and realize they will need Harley’s help since they are longtime friends and a formidable team when they worked together.

This feature had its fair share of meta jokes. Nightwing finds Harley working at a restaurant where the female servers are dressed as scantily clad villains and heroes and

of course she dresses as …………………..herself.

 There was also a great fight scene between her and Nightwing which she won. What followed was what I can only describe as a 50shades of Harley between her and Nightwing.  
Despite some very adult scenes here and there, this was a fun cartoon. It also had a great scene that played back to some Golden and Silver age villains at a bar where Harley graced us with a musical number. There also a message about climate change and taking care of the environment. To be honest I felt like Bernie Sanders was about to show up.   Related image Kevin Conroy returned as the voice of the bat and Loren Lester as Nightwing / Robin. We had a different Harley this time Melissa Rauch played her voice. Which fits perfectly since she is Bernadette on THE BIG BANG THEORY  here’s a sample https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GyAkev_nv0A . It was an awkwardly funny movie. It felt more like one of those serious/funny
episodes from their last season.

Was it odd? Yes. Was it funny? Yes. Will I watch it again? Hell YES!! make sure you go out and grab your copy for your collection. I have to give this movie an A. It gave me something new from the material that I already know about. It was also very funny which was unexpected also the after credit scene I was done. Here a clue: WIPEOUT

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…
