Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 Review (Spoilers!!)

By Corey Floyd
Friday night I played no games and hauled ass to the theaters to see Guardians of the Galaxy volume 2. I was not disappointed. This was a great sequel. The movie starts with the gang all together fighting a huge tentacle monster and Baby Groot still voiced by Vin Diesel and now motion captured by him as well playing music and dancing around the battlefield while giving everyone else a moment to give an intro to the film almost like a 80’s sitcom. Of course, they are victorious and return to a race called the Sovereign a race that thrives on perfection and Gold. The Leader of their Planet is a woman named Ayesha.
Elizabeth Debicki (Victoria from “The Man from U.N.C.L.E”) plays a badass yet again. Meanwhile our Team of Heroes is still having a little trouble getting along Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper) purposely causes friction between himself and the team and Ayesha after he screws her over in a deal. She found herself with only one course of action, to shoot them out of the sky. In an aerial dogfight that looked and sounded like Galaga things were not looking good for our heroes then you see a guy flying by and in a wave of light all the ships were destroyed. I had to admit I thought it was the Silver Surfer for like 40 seconds. After a hazardous Crash landing we come to find out it’s not the Silver Surfer (DAMN you FOX) its EGO (Kurt Russell) and his assistant Mantis (Pom Klementiff) to reveal that his is StarLords father. Meanwhile on the other side of the Galaxy when run into Yondu played the awesome Michael Rooker. I want to take a second out to tip my hat to this guy. He has been the bad guy of bad guys since the start of his career, he is the best at being bad. We find him having a quiet existential moment when he sees another Ravanger as he goes to greet him we see Howard the Duck (Easter egg) and we see Sylvester Stallone. Yondu goes to greet him and we find out his name is Stakar Ogord and they are not friends. Come to find out that the Ravagers are like a fraternity with different chapters and Yondu’s chapter has been ex-communicated. Apparently, they have a rule about no kidnapping children which we know he has done because that is the origin of StarLord’s story.  At the same time his leadership is currently under scrutiny after his fellow space pirates feel that he has gone soft especially when it comes to Starlord. Meanwhile the team meets Starlord’s dad EGO played by SCI FI royalty Kurt Russell who regales them about how he been searching for his son and want to show him his origins. Ego is a living Planet, literally!

For the sake of the story he has the ability to make a humanoid form. This is where i stop myself. I’m not going thru the whole damn film you need to see it. But I will say that this film takes a very dark turn. There’s a mutiny among the Ravagers that leaves a lot of them fall to Yondu favorite tune. Which reminds you a lot of Xmen Quicksilver scene.

 We find out the EGO is a total savage him and Thanos should be friends besties even. We also get a glimpse at a very serious StarLord that was eyebrow raising to say the least.  Of course, there is
. The movie overall was without a doubt better than the original. We also get the best Stan Lee cameo to you that make me believe more that he might be the MCU watcher.  We see that Gamorra and Nebula eventually bury the hatchet after an all-out gun & fist fight of course. By the end of the movie we see a lot of seeds being planted and star cameos out the Ying Yang and gave a big nod to the original comic book Guardians as well as Doctor Strange. This was great action comedy from the MCU. Of course all of this is accompanied by a great soundtrack. Make sure you go out there and watch this one. Now it just means we are 2 movies away from the most anticipated film from Marvel Infinity War. Don’t forget! I AM GROOT!

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…
