Thoughts on DC Legends Of Tomorrow



Review written by Antoine Johnson aka Tony Newport
writer and artist for Amerime Media 1/22/16


What can I say? as a fan of both shows Arrow and The Flash I can say that this is one of DC's ballsiest  shows to date. I'm completely caught up into the lore of these characters, their origins, their struggles, and the things they had to do to get to where they are. I wonder if the many people who have stopped watching or never seen DC's Arrow will The Legends Of Tomorrow be a show that they can get into and not feel lost and confused? 

The CW thought they were clever by scheduling a recap episode of the characters to draw you into the show without prior shows knowledge and expect you to care instantly for them and be excited. I remind you that they have been advertised for over a year now and yet the question still remains, do people even care? I say they should be because how many times do people really need an origin story shoved in every show we get? Not many! Hell, the show Gotham is nothing but Bruce's origin in real time.

Legends of Tomorrow may have a lot going for it in the respects that, as a solo show, it can stand on its own.You may disagree, but hear me out, I've watched every episode of Arrow since its debut and followed reactions of most people who had mixed feelings about the show with every season that goes by. What got people interested again was the introduction of the Flash. Now the Flash is a show that stands alone on its own because he's a well-known character that everyone knows and the main focus of the show is him being the only hero. With Legends, on the other hand, contains some of the best side characters finally getting their chance to shine. Do I care to see this... yes I do! Do you care to see this? maybe after the little explanation of the pilot I'm pretty sure you'll want to get to know these characters more. 

Even though the pilot does little to explain the characters because they assume you should know them by now, it  goes a long way to explain the plot. The show creators thought that the only character we really need to know is Rip Hunter because he's the driving focus that brings the new team together. As far as the team, we learn their differences and their respective reasons for joining (well done Greg Berlanti and friends.) The chemistry between most of the characters makes you believe that they know each other and it's nothing new to them even though it is. Even if you're someone who's new to the series, this blogger believes that you should give it a try. It's a hero/villain team unlike anything we've seen so far, and I find it interesting and I think you will too.

Valerian and the city of 1000 planets(A Salty Review)

By Corey Floyd This summer we have been hit with a lot of movies as usual. But one of them I had so many questions about. This movie was Valerian. It’s based off a graphic novel. The film was written and directed by Luc Besson the mind behind The Fifth Element, Taken series and Transporter series. With a stellar trailer with beautiful visuals, you would think this was a cinematic slam dunk right?   While this film is very heavy with beautiful CGI visuals that tell a narrative without words when the main actors step they drag this film from the depths of space to a crappy SYFY movie. Our main character  Major Valerian is played by Dane DeHaan. Most people should remember him from The Amazing Spider Man 2 as Harry Osborn and Andrew Detmer from the hit film Chronicle. His co star is Cara Delevingne. She was the woman who played the Enchantress in the universally panned but financially successful Suicide Squad. I have a few problems with these two that affect this movie in a big way. Despit…

Not a Single Potato Chip was Eaten! Thoughts on The Netflix Death Note Adaptation.

By Luiggi Cavanna
Let me start with that this is not so much as review but more of comparison between the Netflix original and it’s source material. For a review go check out our local movie critic, Corey Floyd, he wrote an insightful review on this movie. Now let’s get on with this train wreck.
Two will go in just one will come out... LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!
I’m going to say this, if you like the manga/anime, you are going to HATE this movie! This is coming from a guy that wrote a blog about how we should give the live action adaptation a chance and that we shouldn’t hate before it comes out. Well it is out now, so we can hate on it.
L: “Man this movie is ASS!”
Ok! Let's start dissecting this ugly specimen by comparing the characters of the movie with their anime counterparts. What better place to start than with the main protagonist Light!
I’m going to need a drink….. And I don’t drink!!
Oh boy this is going to be something! The Light from the source material was an incredibly smar…
