Assassin's Creed was a good movie!!


By Corey Floyd


Back in the final months of 2016 Assassin’s Creed was released in theaters. Now I must admit I did not go and see it theaters despite the good trailers that were all over the place. It was still a movie based off a video game. We have seen repeatedly that video games and Hollywood don’t mix. 

Let’s look at few House of the Dead, Super Mario, BloodRayne and Resident Evil all horrible films. So naturally I fed into the stigma and I wasn’t alone the movie made 240 million on a 125 budget technically a success but it has a 17% on the “sacred” Rotten Tomatoes website.

 Last week I finally sat down and watched the film for myself. I enjoyed it. First of all, you have Michael Fassbinder as the main character.  HE DOESN’T DO BAD MOVIES!!! I double checked. It was very true to what we experience in the first several games but it covered the Spanish Inquisition. 

The animus in the film made more sense than the ones in the game. The animus in the film actually moved around with the patient and allowed them to actually move they way they were moving in the memory sequence. It ties into the game seamlessly. I don’t want to give it away but I do urge people to watch this film. I understand how the subgenre has been ran through the mud in the past but this gives new hope that it can be done properly.

 Besides ………… they are doing a sequel to the film and I’m looking forward to it. If you’re a fan of the series you’re a fan of the film this I guarantee. Go out grab a copy.  Grade B+

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…
