Reboots that should happen!!!

By Corey Floyd


Well, it’s that time again. Time to talk about reboots. I know we don’t like them as a whole but if done right you can have something great a few of these shows or movies. The following have been canceled or bombed at the box office due to someone dropping the ball and hopefully someone can pick it up.

Black Dynamite! Was only on Adult Swim for 2 seasons. The show is based on a movie starring Michael Jai White parodying blaxploitation films of the 70’s. The cartoon as an extension of that. Bringing back the cast of the film to play themselves in animated form. It was a very funny series but I don’t think the humor fell on a lot of people. The show was definitely was targeting a black audience which may have had a lot of it humor lost on people who don't know the culture. It was also not slotted well in conjunction with other shows such as.

It’s content also could get very offensive. They did not hold back when it came it making fun of celebrities. From Michael Jackson being an Alien drugged up Elvis Presley.

 Maybe they can blast the team into the present and have new adventures. Just a thought.

Drawn Together was the ultimate offensive experiment. The took MTV’s “real world” premise and made it a cartoon. They took seven cartoon types and parodied them to an extreme. For example, Princess Clara is a Disney Princess type. She sings songs and animals come out of the woodwork. But here’s the deal she’s a homophobic racist.

There an Asian battle card monster named LING LING. He is the ultimate Asian stereotype that even comes with his own language.

 That’s just a sample of what type of savagery and talent that was behind this show. It was short lived due to their barrier-breaking 4th wall shattering content that even comedy central executives believe they went too far. I would like to see the return of this show due to the new cartoons that are out that can be made fun of. From my little pony to Steven Universe and to the world of Anime. Here a clip to give you a better clue . I would love for this to come back.  Just think of the cameos.

Boondocks needs to come back.But we need  Aaron  McGruder back at the helm as head writer. When it was announced that he was not the writer for the 4th season as a fan I was disheartened but I had hope. The first episode was kinda funny.

Throwing a mean left hook at the music industry that has been about more gossip than substance. The rest of the season came off mean-spirited and unfunny. Rodney Barnes & Angela Nissel two producers decided they could write this show.
It was just awful. As a matter of fact, there’s an episode that ran a GOOD TIMES gag to the point it wasn’t funny. To be honest, it wasn’t that funny, to begin with. If you check out youtube they have been the season for streams of the Boondocks on for the last 3 weeks so hopefully, you see it.  Somehow Drawn Together a show written by white guys ( not that there is anything wrong with that )did the joke so much better see .

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…
