CAN BATGIRL SAVE THE DAY?!

By Corey Floyd
It was announced that DC had been reaching out to Joss Whedon to direct a Batgirl film. Joss Whedon for those who might not be in the know has been one of the biggest nerds of the 2000’s from 2 hit shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and Firefly. He also was at the helm for both Avenger movies. Off these titles alone I feel he is more than qualified. Hopefully he writes the movie as well because let’s be honest the DCEU biggest problem is writing and Zack Snyder. With that being, it also raises the question. Is Zack Snyder throne at DC in trouble? In my opinion he needs to step down. Watchmen and 300 were great don’t get me wrong but it’s been a pretty slippery slope since. BvS was at many points just plain terrible. I don’t about everyone else but I might go see Justice League on a Half price Tuesday. I think his stance has never really been solidified when it comes to doing films well so someone should at least show him how it's done.
Meanwhile back in the casting chair who should play the part? Well I do have a few Ideas. Okay let’s start with the obvious Emma Stone. Despite her winning an Oscar for a really crappy movie (LALA LAND) she has proven that she can act. She can funny, compelling, lovable and downright hated. She has proven her worth in films like “ZombieLand,” “Easy A,” “The Help” and “The Amazing Spider-man” plus she’s like the Number one draft pick in most of Hollywood’s eyes.  
  Another pick is Jane Levy. Some may know from her role as Mandy Malkovich in Shameless or Mia In the 2013 Evil dead remake. I get a Killing Joke vibe from her or from at least from what I’ve seen in her performances. I think she could do that character arc. But as for an intro movie, honestly, I’m not sure. But apparently, she has a huge fan base that thinks she can do it.
 Zoe Kravitz is my third option. Now here at Amerime Media we like to give everyone a fair shot. So, if you think Batgirl can’t be black do let the door hit you in your ass on the way out. Zoe has shown that she is a star. She has been consistently working since 2007 and has been part of some big films, X-men First class, Insurgent, Mad Max Fury Road, The Lego Batman Movie, and Fantastic Beasts and where to find them. She is Everywhere and this is where she could go next. I believe she has the guts to wear the cape.
 I would be an idiot If I left out Chloe Grace Moretz. She has proven time and time again that she can do it all. She has been working in the business since she was 7 and now at 20 she has already taken her career everywhere and back. She has been in kid projects such as Disney’s Bolt where she played a Young Penny. Then she has also played a tortured high school student with special powers in Carrie 2013 (the movie flopped but that’s because it’s been done too many times but it was actually a good film). Of course, most of you might know her has Hit Girl From the Kickass franchise so I guess seeing her as Batgirl just got a little easier. Those are my picks. Have some of your own?

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…
