Jack is Back!!! Samurai Jack that is.

By Corey Saltytruth Floyd

It was a long time coming but Samurai Jack has returned to cartoon network. If you follow us on Twitter (and you should) @Basick_D_B was live tweeting and for good reason.  Believe it or not, the photo in the article is Jack. 

We are reintroduced to our hero looking like he is fresh off Fury Road sporting Samurai style armor and a motorcycle with spikes on the wheels. He takes out a few hundred drones with his machine gun and staff. Oh yeah, 


They haven’t gone in what happened to it exactly but the episode did cover one interesting aspect of the story. It has been 50 years since the last time we saw him yet he hasn’t aged a day and on top of that throughout the episode, he is haunted by visions of his family dying and calling to him for help it was really creepy. 

But it still had its light side he took on an assassin robot that was voiced by a Sammy Davis Jr. ( google him if you don’t know what I’m talking about) that used music as a weapon. Fun, creative, as well as intense battle,  took place. We did not see AKU during the episode but I did heard his voice. The animation is slightly upgraded from the original. 

You can see the details of each frame. By the look of the credits seems like 85% of the original team working on this I suggest you guys check it out. I won’t be going episode by episode on this but after the season it will receive the good, the bad, and the SALTY but so far so good.

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…
