Shape Of Water Movie review By Corey Floyd

The Shape Of Water caught my attention back in the summer when I was 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) is mute from a childhood trauma  she is …

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…

A Roller-coaster of Emotions, A Dragon Ball discussion by Luiggi Cavanna

This week while talking to a friend about anime of the year, mainly because of the announcement of the second season of Made in Abyss, we somehow ended up talking about Dragon Ball Super and how Dragon Ball “is bad now”. The past episodes of Dragon Ball Super have caused an uproar in the community. The fans have gone from, “this show is trash!” to “oh my GAH the animation is so great” and finally “what’s going to happen next?!!”. So during my discussion with my friend,I explained how literally the show has been like this for years! So I’ll take this opportunity to have a little conversation with you guys about how nothing has changed in Dragon Ball.

Let me explain that I watch Dragon Ball Super sparingly, so I literally had to go on a small chocolate chip cookies fueled marathon of Dragon Ball episodes to write this. When I reached the episodes that cause the community to go on the rampage, I felt nothing! It was Dragon Ball being Dragon Ball, let me explain in more detail.
Power leve…
