Who needs A reboot? Part 1

Amerime Media

By Corey Floyd

Reboots there’s been a lot of them, right? Spider-Man has been rebooted 3 times in fifteen years each one an improvement. On the other hand, we had Fantastic Four which wasn’t terrible, it was good enough to get a sequel that was just awful. It was rebooted into the worst film of 2015 it was a failure on several fronts. It would be a stretch to even call it watchable.  With the Power Rangers reboot coming our way there are a few movies.  I think should have a proper facelift. 

Tank Girl you’re up first! A British comic book that started in 1988 about a post-apocalyptic world where water is so rare is used as currency there's a heroine named Rebecca who becomes a fighter against the evil corporation holding the world’s water for power and she drives a crazy looking tank. It was adapted for film in 1995. It was a disaster only grossing a little over five million with a budget of 25 million. Now that we are living in a time where female comic book characters need to come in all shapes and sizes I feel like this would be a great addition to the times. Plus, with the comics vulgarity and violence, we could be looking at a female response to Deadpool.  I’m not sure but director  George Miller could do. Actress wise this is gonna sound weird or at least it does to me but it’s between Miley Cyrus, Yolandi from Die Antwood (Chappie) or Kate McKinnon (SNL).

Second Robocop. I know they did that already. But did they? That was something but it was not Robocop. I’m not sure what that was.  But it was not a Sci-Fi action. It was a political drama with action. What the hell was Samuel Jackson wearing on his head! If you really think about it every movie post Pulp Fiction if he has a hairpiece the movie is odd and hard to watch Formula 51, Jumper, The Man, Robocop. I think they need to start back to the basics just update the material. Bring back the weird commercials that are so close to being accurate it’s scary, practical effects (mainly blood splatters) bring that back keep it rated R don’t water it down. I have no idea for actors but I would have Tim Miller direct.

This will be part of a series of blogs I will drop throughout the year so if you have an idea for a reboot drop us a 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…

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…

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…
