Let the Hunt Begin Monster Hunter World Review By Luiggi Cavanna

This game is like Dark Souls meets.. WAIT! where are you going? I was just joking don’t go!! I’m sorry but I had to make the joke, come on. To be fair there’s a lot people that are new to this franchise that might make that comparison but don’t just go get your hunting horn and try to squash them just yet. This is good, we have new people interested in this game and that was the goal that Capcom had in mind. This game made so many drastic changes from previous sequels to attract more people in the western market and at the same time kept most of the formula that made Monster Hunter the game that it is. Monster Hunter is back giving us a perfect balance between old and new that honestly (spoiler alert for the rest of the review) seems perfect to me.
Welcome to Monster Hunter World!!
I have to say, Monster Hunter World is a breath of fresh air for the franchise. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Monster Hunter, but it was in serious need for an update to some of the mechanics and is also nice …

Gaslight gets Greenlight! Movie Reveiw (some spoiler) By Corey Floyd

Gotham by Gaslight was a one shot made back in 1989. It shows a 19th century gotham and of course a 19th century Batman.  It was super popular and have received a sequel. Both were written by Mike Mignola most know for the Hellboy series. Now we fast forward to 2018 were it has been adapted into animated movie. It was directed by Sam Liu who has been under for the confusing take on The Killing Joke. That hiccup has been forgotten with this trip to another timeline.   In this story Gotham is being plagued by the most infamous serial killer of all time Jack the Ripper. In this tale of “Who did it” we see a lot of familiar DC faces.  Selina Kyle (above) is still a badass being played by Jessica Carpenter.      We get a surprise easter egg with not one but three Robins as wayward orphans  who play a small role in the film.  The film starts with the death of one of my favorite villains (OOPS SPOILER!!). If you have never heard of this film your gonna have a real good time watching it it…

Shape Of Water Movie review

By Corey FloydThe Shape Of Water caught my attention back in the summer when I wrote an article covering trailers shown at San Diego Comic Con.   http://amerimemedia.blogspot.com/2017/08/movie-trailers-from-comic-con-by-corey.htm I was very excited to see this film. One, it’s a Guillermo Del Toro film, and two, I thought it was a orIgin story for ABE SAPIEN from the Hellboy franchise. The likeness is uncanny



  and the same actor is playing both roles. This movie had a lot of layers to it. This was a love story & spy thriller written by Del Toro &  Vanessa Taylor. I had to travel far and wide to see this film. It came off like a new creature of the black lagoon.  Which reminds me that he was the offered the job of directing “Creature of the Black lagoon “ for the Dark Universe franchise but declined to do this instead. Smart choice indeed.  The human characters represent the outcasts of early 1960s society.  Elisa Esposito (played by Sally Hawkins)

The new 8 Bit Heroes (Movie Review)

By Corey Floyd
I really enjoy watching documentaries and docufilms, and if you couple that with the old school nostalgia of 8 bit video games, you've placed me directly in heaven. The virtual pearly gates opened up for my team and I when Joe Granato sent us a link to his movie "The New 8bit Heroes," and asked us if we could review it for PAX SOUTH. As fate would have it, mother nature covered Philadelphia in a mountain of snow (about three inches lol) so my team and I brought out the hot chocolate and snacks, bundled up with blankets, and had ourselves a movie day.

This movie was sent to us early, but we snagged a link so you beautiful people can enjoy it too. You can buy it ===>HERE<===  NOW WE'RE GOING TO GO BACK,  WAY BACK, BACK INTO TIME!  The New 8 Bit Heroes is a story not driven by corporate greed, but childhood wonder and imagination. As children we have big fanciful dreams that we often abandon as adults. Thankfully this didn't happen to Joe. On a…

Top 9 masks in Anime

By Rin Banditt & Corey Floyd
Kidd Bandit and I were sitting around the the other day talking about anime & stuff while she was working on a mask. We began to ponder who has the best mask in anime. So, after talking about it like adults, and screaming at each other like toddlers... we came up with the top nine masks. Of course this is only our opinion, feel free to comment with your two cents. We are only covering masks in the world of anime or manga, masks in any other genre will be saved for another day. 10. Seiko Kimura - Danganronpa at the bottom of our list is the most simple mask, but the same cannot be said for the character. She wears her fashionable flu mask to hide her braces. As the “Ultimate Pharmacist” she uses pills to power herself up. Sadly she doesn’t survive the show, but her look was noteworthy nonetheless . 9. Lorenzo Cuticle Detective Inaba     This face is something, it can be as scary as it is cute. Lorenzo is an assistant with Don Valentino who is very prote…

BRIGHT was TIGHT !!!! BY Corey Floyd

Months ago when Netflix announced they were doing a film with Will Smith I was excited. Then that Death Note movie happened. 
let's just say I lost a little confidence in Netflix. But I did not lose hope when I heard David Ayers was directing that calmed my nerves then the trailer came out and I had questions. Luckily the answers came the other day while watching Bright. 

Bright gives a world where the tales of fantasy like elves, orcs, magic etc are in our modern time. They don’t  go into details so that gives leeway for more storytelling and I appreciate that. Will Smith plays Daryl Ward a very tired LAPD officer with 5 years left to get his pension. All he has to do is survive which is pretty difficult since he just survived being shot by an orc with a shotgun. His partner is Nick Jakoby played by Joel Edgerton (the Gift) he is the only orc in the LAPD.
Daryl like most of the Humans in the film do not like orcs. It gives a social commentary on the current racial climate by maki…
