Casting Choices (WHO’S NEXT continued)



By Corey Floyd


It has been confirmed that Will Smith will be playing Genie in the live action adaptation of Aladdin. As much as I love Will Smith I’m not loving this casting choice. Which lead me back to the lab and had me thinking about who I would have as the Genie. I also began to think about who could play other characters as well especially since the DCEU is probably gonna keep rolling on.  So here are a few of my casting pics. If you haven’t seen any of these before checking it out here.

As I said earlier I’m not 100% on board with Will Smith as the genie. But I do have a solution. Image result for dj khaled gif
Yes DJ KHALED. No, don’t close out this blog!!!! Hear me out if you have paid attention to this man you realize that he one of the funniest people out there. He’s energetic and handles himself great in all situations. His social media is hilarious and with his style and flair, he could make his own genie while Will Smith will automatically be in Robin’s shadow.

Next Up!! Virgil Hawkins aka Static Shock. This character made quite a few waves back in the day on Kids WB. He made a great appearance in the ill fated second season of Young Justice. With the CW fall lineup including Black Lighting I can help but feel Static will be behind the corner. So, of course, I have an idea or two.

My pick is Shameik Moore. Most of you should know him from the hit film DOPE and ill fated Netflix original The Get Down. I feel that he needs another chance to grace TV and after his energetic performance in The Get Down  that he could light up the screen as Virgil. Image result for jaden smith gif
Ugh! Fine if he continues to give compelling performances like he gave in The Get Down as well he can make a good Static too.  If he could only stop Trolling.  Related image
I’ve said this before but I am personally sick and tired of Arnold as the the Terminator. He has a good run I will not deny him that. After seeing Terminator Genisys it really is time for him to Hasta la vista. They had a better explanation on why he looked old than the actual plot of the film. By the way I hate Jai Courtney. But seriously he just doesn’t have it anymore. He doesn’t have that threatening look anymore, There’s no intimidation there he’s just too old it’s time to retire the T-800.  Meet the new Image result for brock lesnar
T-900.  Meet Brock Lesnar one of the most decorated fighters Heavyweight fighters in the world. He is currently the WWE champion.  He is also the perfect candidate for being a new Terminator. He doesn’t have to talk just look badass and kill. Look at this here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5SjD-KcSkE he already has guns down. James Cameron don’t you think it’s time for a upgrade? I certainly do. It’s time to take the series to

My last one for today would be DC’s Black Spider.  There has been several people who have the title but I’m covering Eric Needham. He’s a vigilante like Batman but he’s a killer. In the new 52 he’s actually a very competent assassin you use tactics similar to the league of shadows. Has not had many outings but he is very relevant in the new 52 a member of the suicide squad. Since the film had a more than modest take in the box office there will be a sequel despite “mixed” reviews. So naturally they need someone to fill in this live action character.
 
My suggestion is Michael Jai White. He’s already played a few characters before. Some my remember him as Spawn which is currently on Netflix. He also played Jax in the Mortal Kombat web series from Machinima. With his infamous Martial arts background I feel like he could be a shoo in for this character. He’s also a very funny guy, he is the man behind Black Dynamite so if they want humor from him in the movie he can do that as well.

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…
