BATMAN & Harley!! Review (A few spoilers)



By Corey Floyd

While the DCEU is trying to get their act together their animated movies have always been a hit. They have been dark, violent, gritty film series. Recently they lightened up with an old school Batman & Robin DVD featuring the Adam West. Then I saw a trailer for Batman and Harley.

I got very excited the animation style was a homage to the Batman: Animated series which is also celebrating it’s 25th Anniversary this year. Wasn’t sure if this was gonna be a serious romp or not but I was ready nonetheless. Also, everyone loves Harley we can’t get enough of her. So why not do a feature where she works with the dark knight in her own special way  

The movie Villians Poison Ivy & Floronic Man (Walmart brand Swamp Thing) trying to turn the entire world inhabitants into a plant Hybrid. Batman and Nightwing are on the case and realize they will need Harley’s help since they are longtime friends and a formidable team when they worked together.

This feature had its fair share of meta jokes. Nightwing finds Harley working at a restaurant where the female servers are dressed as scantily clad villains and heroes and

of course she dresses as …………………..herself.

 There was also a great fight scene between her and Nightwing which she won. What followed was what I can only describe as a 50shades of Harley between her and Nightwing.  
Despite some very adult scenes here and there, this was a fun cartoon. It also had a great scene that played back to some Golden and Silver age villains at a bar where Harley graced us with a musical number. There also a message about climate change and taking care of the environment. To be honest I felt like Bernie Sanders was about to show up.   Related image Kevin Conroy returned as the voice of the bat and Loren Lester as Nightwing / Robin. We had a different Harley this time Melissa Rauch played her voice. Which fits perfectly since she is Bernadette on THE BIG BANG THEORY  here’s a sample https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GyAkev_nv0A . It was an awkwardly funny movie. It felt more like one of those serious/funny
episodes from their last season.

Was it odd? Yes. Was it funny? Yes. Will I watch it again? Hell YES!! make sure you go out and grab your copy for your collection. I have to give this movie an A. It gave me something new from the material that I already know about. It was also very funny which was unexpected also the after credit scene I was done. Here a clue: WIPEOUT

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…
