VENOM 2018!!! I'm not buying it





By Corey Floyd



Last week Sony announced that they are doing a Venom film to be released in 2018. Now this sounds good, but I took a deeper look. According to my sources they are not even in preproduction. The only names attached to the project are a couple of screenwriters and a producer. Dante Harper is writing for Venom. His credits are a bunch of behind the scenes documentaries, so I guess he’s gonna be doing that. The other writer attached is Jeff Pinkner who wrote the Amazing Spiderman 2. He is also the executive producer of the DARK TOWER film, and has written the upcoming Jumanji sequel starring the Rock. Now this writing team doesn’t sound too bad, but I must admit the producers do makes this sound a lot better. We have Avi Arad most known for his work under Iron Man and the first two X-Men films. To be honest, he has been more involved in comic book related entertainment than anyone else in the industry. The other producer is Scott Rosenberg, most known for “High Fidelity,” “Con - Air,” and “Gone in 60 seconds.”
This is a pretty wild mix, right?
Sony said that Venom will not be part of the MCU. I doubt that. I think they need to play ball. Overall, I’m not buying a 2018 release. Like I stated earlier, they are very far away from just basic pre-production, casting etc. I see this as a 2019 thing. If they try to rush this movie, I predict that it will be a huge failure.  But hey, I could be wrong. (I’m usually not tho… lol)

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…
