When I was growing up I was a huge fan of Sonic the Hedgehog. I’ve played them all. My personal favorite was the Sonic 3 Sonic & Knuckles Combo. It gave you the greatest Sonic experience ever plus knuckles that you could make HYPER KNUCKLES & HYPER SONIC even tails had a weird super version where magical birds protected him , it was odd but still cool. Then Sonic landed on the dreamcast it was awesome. Even met a few new characters.

and one that should have never happened. Image result for big the cat gifAfter this point things got weird, Sonic Riders: a Hover board racing game. Then this happened
a SHADOW game where he has a gun plus multiple endings? Image result for shudders gif
We thought things couldn’t get any worse. Until 2006
it was at this moment I was done. I gave up on Sonic. There were more lackluster and half ass games. There was one where a night sonic turned into a “Were-hog”Image result for sonic werehog transformation gif
the sad part was the daytime missions were actually good but an overall failure. But when I started  hearing about Sonic Mania there two big things that came up. Once upon a time there was a website call newgrounds.com (IT’S STILL AROUND CHECK IT OUT) on this site there was a Sonic flash game. It’s amazing honestly if you can go to their site and try it. But anyway one of the makers of that game is also behind  Sonic Mania. After playing for a few hours all I can say is You will not be disappointed.

There's also some difficulty in these stages. A few of them actually had me stuck and I need a friend to come over and play as Tails. Best Co-op when your partner is invincible. Also Tails is still able to carry you places.  Image result for sonic mania stage gifImage result for sonic bonus stage gif Also these Bonus stages have returned.  Time to go Super Saiyan I mean Super Sonic. The replay value is super high. (ATTENTION PC GAMERS !!!! THE PC VERSION COMES WITH DENUVO!!! I REPEAT DENUVO!!!!!!) This is a huge win for SONIC fans A+. Now I'm looking at you Sonic Forces. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9tDMLXn99P4  Well I'mma say GOTTA GO FAST!!!Related image

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…
