My review on Batman Bad Blood



Fresh into the new year DC Comics has given us the third installment of Batman’s animated movie, “Bad Blood.”  It contains the story of Batman and the family since the first movie “Son of Batman” and follows a few months after the events of the previous movie, “Batman Vs Robin.” The last couple of movies has not been about Batman. Instead, it focuses on the supporting cast, and charges them with the ominous task of carrying a movie without their main star, and the question is, can they? 

This movie is not shy on the action.  From beginning to end it throws fights at you left and right.  It can feel a bit dizzying at times with all the various fight scenes, but after a while, it settles to the point where you can still know what’s happening.  The more I watch these movies, the less Batman it becomes.  Sure he’s there, but he doesn't do much.  Cassie Kane, Dick Grayson, Damien Wayne, and newcomer Luke Fox is the meat and potatoes of the movie.

Obviously, as in any team based movie, they can’t seem to work together at first.  With some well-done trust exercises, they get their act together and step up to handle their job.  There are moments of character and origin building throughout to introduce lesser known characters without feeling forced.  Except the villains, there was no explanation of who they were. Only true fans and comic nerds would know who they are, and even then it doesn't matter.  In the end, it’s worth the watch.  Granted that you will have to watch “Batman Vs Robin” to explain Damien's appearance in the far east.  Other than that it’s a good look into the bat family as a whole.  Watching them earn their ranks and the respect of Batman is definitely a movie that bat fan have to watch, and in the end, it sets up good for the next movie down the line.

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…

BIG MOUTH!!! LOL ( Spoiler Free)

By Corey Floyd




About  a month ago I came across a trailer for Big  Mouth. It comes off as a cartoon about a group of kids hitting puberty. Which is sweet, awkward and Innocent. But then I heard that Nick Kroll ( The Kroll Show, the League) and John Mulaney I knew this was gonna be some wild stuff. This show is a very wild ride and I loved every minute. Let me break down why this is the show you need to see.
The cast consists of some of the funniest people on television. As I already mentioned Kroll & Mulaney are writers as well as two of the main characters Andrew & NIck. Jessi Klein ( writer for Inside Amy Schumer) plays Jessi ( I know right) a young woman who has just hit puberty and not sure what to do and you meet her her new friend. Missy voiced by Jenny Slate ( Bellwether from Zootopia) who is the most level headed of the group. Then you have the wild card Jay played by Jason Mantzoukas ( Sad sax guy from regular show,  Eagle wing Kroll show) he lives in a house of aggress…

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…
