Who's Next? Part Two

By Corey Floyd

A few months ago, I talked about potential casting choices in future comic book based films. If you haven’t seen it check it out here http://amerimemedia.blogspot.com/2017/03/whos-next-part-1.html?view=mosaic . Now I’m ready to return to the casting gauntlet with a few more roles and who should play them. None of these are set in stone by any studio just a few thoughts on who can play who.
  
First in our lineup is Edward Nigma aka the Riddler. He is part of Batman rogue’s gallery known for using more brain and a lot less brawn truly a match of intellect for batman. Since Cory Michael Smith is covering the more psychotic side of Riddler in the Gotham series I want to focus more on the methodical side of him. There has been a huge fan push for Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons to play him. I don’t think I would work out well because Sheldon is too damn annoying and the portrayal would become comedic. I think Matthew Gray Gubler from Criminal Minds would work out very well.  Besides he’s already played him in the Assault on Arkham animated movie (better than Suicide Squad check it out). Let’s be honest at least DC animation is right on the money more the DCEU this choice would be great. He has already shown on his hit show that he can be smart and dangerous without touching a weapon.  

My next Idea is Adam Warlock. 

For those of you who watched the extra credit scenes from Guardians of the Galaxy. You know that they hinted at Adam Warlock in the next Guardians film. The next stage in evolution for The Sovereign. Naturally is going to be different from his original origin. I was scratching my head about this one for a while but I think I have a winner.

Jared Padalecki from the long running Supernatural series is a sure bet in my book. He has shown a lot of growth as an actor in this series and maybe it’s time for him to return to the silver screen just like Warlock he can be a good or bad guy plus he has the potential physique already has the hair. His first two adventures in film were not the best projects (Friday the 13th reboot & House of Wax reboot) but maybe third time's the charm. Maybe we can throw Jensen Ackles in as the new John Blaze too.

My Last choice is a hard one because there are no official announcements so call this wishful thinking.

IronHeart aka Riri Williams the teenage prodigy. I feel like when they announce the next phase for marvel studios this will be one of the steps being made. Not saying that they will Kill off RDJ’s Iron Man but perhaps he takes a leave of absence and a certain young lady builds her own. Now I have a couple of choices here so here me out. My first choice is Amandla Stenberg. Most remembered for her role as Rue in The Hunger Games she has been consistently working on film and TV. Her current film Everything shows a display of an innocent side (warning this film will come for your tears). While the real attitude she gives off in real life will transition very well to screen. She is at the perfect age to cast for this role, it would be just like hiring Tom Holland as Spiderman.

My other draft pick is Skai Jackson. Who, at such a Young age, has a work history challenging some adults in Hollywood. She's already been called the next big star. She has a very strong fan base thanks to her roles on Nickelodeon & Disney. Either choice would really work out. I think Disney would love to have one of their stars from the little screen make to the Big screen and still be under their roof.


Of course, all these picks are just my opinion. I assume you have a few of you own don’t be shy hit us up on FB, Instagram & Twitter.

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…
