Dungeons and Dragons The Hit You Didn't Expect

Dungeons and Dragons can be a lot of things. It could be a 48-year-old tabletop game, the premise of almost every fantasy story ever, great video games, and finally a hit movie. Keyword finally because there have been several movies with the title Dungeon and Dragons in them and none of them were good. Thanks to Stranger Things and Critical Role getting more people into the game as well as the hit show Vox Machina, the stage was set for this 151-million-dollar attempt. How did it turn out?


 



The story is about Edgin played by one of the Chris. It's Chris Pine ( Captain Kirk) who plays the Bard and wants to go on an epic quest with his adopted Barbarian sister Holga who is played by Michelle Rodriguez (Letty from fast and furious). Along the way, they pick up their wizard master in training Simon played by Justice Smith (The Get Down, The Quarry). Last but not least The changeling Druid Doric is played by Sophia Ellis ( IT chapters 1 & 2). The cast has amazing chemistry. They feel very natural in their element. I know Michelle has played D&D with Vin Diesel. Maybe as a cast, they spent a few hours playing the game, maybe Vin was their DM? 





I am NOT gonna spoil this one but I will say this. You don't have to be a fan of D&D to enjoy this movie. If you are a fan you will love all of the easter eggs characters and nods to the source material. This is a beautiful-looking film. The nine-figure budget was used wisely. The writers/directors are quite the duo. Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daly have been behind films we hold near and dear to our hearts. They are behind Horrible Bosses 1&2, Spiderman Homecoming, Vacation, and Vacation Friends. These guys are a dynamic duo who I hope is gonna be around for years to come. This film is a great family-friendly movie. This was a fun movie and I can honestly say this could be a franchise. I look forward to more adventures in this world. This was for newcomers and fans. It was an honor to finally see this adaptation knock it out of the park.

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 matc

Scissor Seven on Netflix Stream or Skip

STREAM OR SKIP?   Scissor Seven is a Chinese animated series that was streamed in 2018 with the name of Killer Seven. As soon as Netflix streamed this show at the start of 2020, it became a hit globally! With the increasing popularity of Anime, Netflix has created a whole Anime library for anime fans. Scissor Seven is the first Chinese anime being streamed on Netflix. It’s a serious debate on whether to call it an anime or not, but I won’t get into that discussion for now.   Why Should You Watch Scissor Seven? If I needed to coat only a single thing in the list of why you should be watching it that would be the COMEDY! It is hilarious! Seven might not be the best killer, but that Goofy-head is the best entertainer for sure! It is a hilarious satire on the whole hero business, as we can how Seven is nothing but a Professional Goof! Scissors is his ultimate weapon on which he uses his telekinetic abilities. Every Hero needs a sidekick, here our sidekick is an angry bird with
