XX movie review (Spoilers)




By Corey Floyd

Title: horizontal line


Hey, guys if you remember some time ago I told you guys about as an upcoming movie that was an anthology series where female directors directed all the stories. The trailer looked very promising. It came out in limited release but I was determined to check it out.  I don’t know how to put this but this was not a good start for the year.
I Honestly feel bad about doing this but they gave me no choice. Over the last few years we have been hit up by anthology horror movies and so far, it has not been bad VHS, Tales of Halloween, Christmas Horror Story, and things have been good. So I thought I would get more of the same or maybe a lil extra since one of the directors has some good movies under her belt.
Karyn Kasuma most known for directing Jennifer's Body did a good job with her contribution “Her only living son” which was about her troubled son who is fighting his inner demons while wondering about his biological father. When he turns 18 he realizes that his father is the Devil the actual Devil and he appears and the room gets darks it's the only good story in the film. One is a comedy about a wife hiding her dead husband. Who she didn’t even kill it was an accidental overdose. She spends the rest of the piece trying to hide the body and it's comical than suspenseful and she decides to pay off the entertainment guy to give her his panda suit so she can prop him up in a chair during the party. It’s not scary it’s not even funny.
Then there was a piece about a road trip that made a pit stop on Native American land that turned one of them into a bloodthirsty creature. I’ve seen more creativity In an episode of Goosebumps. The actors in each piece did a good job the effects work was solid nothing to call home about but the storytelling is what killed it for me. The only thing this movie is good for is killing time.

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…
