A Quiet Place Review By Corey Floyd


horizontal line

A few weeks ago I came across a trailer for a quiet place. It looked like a typical family film but then a kid got mauled for playing with a toy car. Okay, you have my curiosity. Then I saw John Krasinski was in it with a killer beard. Naturally, I was a huge fan of the prankster from the office so I knew I had to see it. Whenever you get funny actors playing serious parts you get gold.

The movie takes place somewhere in mid-America about 2 years after an alien attack. To keep the mystique of the creature there is no origin story behind it. Only a few things are known about them. They are blind and they kill anything that makes a sound. So John and his family live out there days surviving in silence. His wife is played by his real-life wife Emily Blunt so their chemistry is natural. Her character is pregnant and it looks like she could go into labor any minute. The kids fit in with no problem it actually adds more to it since their oldest daughter is deaf and uses a hearing aid. The most important member of the cast is sound. The is very little sound and dialogue throughout the film so it’s a very visual experience. Luckily I was a viewing with very few theater eaters and cell phone douchebags. Every scene tells a story from the quiet walks on sand that they put down to get around everywhere to the board game with soft handcrafted pieces so the children can have a small attempt at a normal life. Since one of their kids is deaf ASL ( American sign language) is used for most scenes.


The cinematography is breathtaking and the sound engineer role is just a pivotal as the director. The Director is John Krasinski who had only directed one other film prior as well as a few episodes of The Office. He also Jacked, that plus the beard I can help see him as a live-action snake for Metal Gear Solid. You might have noticed that I have shown you any pictures of the creature. That is intentional I love the design of the creatures so much I think you need to get your butt to the movies and see it. I will say this if you think the Demogorgon from Stranger Things was nasty this is like his cousin that he doesn’t talk about. Its completely CGI and I understand why. I don’t think practical would have got this right. The 17 million dollar movie has already made its money back and some. I agree with the rest of the critics best horror movie of 2018. I'm glad I went to see this instead of truth or dare. I give this a 4.5 out of 5. I hope when you see this there's not some jerk making too much noise.

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…
