‘Justice League’ After a Second Viewing

I haven’t seen Justice League since I went to watch it in IMAX in November of 2017 but after Aquaman, I have obtained an almost troubling desire to watch this movie again. For weeks I have waited to see it and finally, last night, I got to watch it.

My review of Justice League last time wasn’t a scathing review of a terrible film but rather a delighted account that highlighted the film’s strengths rather than its weakness. However, after seeing how incredible Aquaman was and then watching Justice League it definitely was a bit jarring to see the striking difference between the two films. Simply Aquaman is great, Justice League is not.

I found myself slightly cringing whenever Bruce Wayne was on the screen because he looked terribly wooden and slightly if I’m being honest, bloated.

‘Captain Marvel’ Has Some Exciting New Character Posters

One of the exciting things about a movie coming out is the marketing campaign leading to the film’s release and that means character posters. Not only can you now pre-order tickets for the movie but today a bunch of awesome character posters was released for the film. So, on that note, here they are.

Agent Coulson

Clark Gregg in Captain Marvel (2019)

Agent Coulson returns to the MCU with his role in Captain Marvel and I can’t wait to see how important that role will turn out to be.

Monica Rambeau

Lashana Lynch in Captain Marvel (2019)

Monica Rambeau, an Air Force pilot buddy of Carol Danvers before her accident, gets a character poster, highlighting her importance in the movie.

The Mission Is Far From Over

With Mission: Impossible-Fallout becoming one of the best movies of 2018 it was clear that more films of this delightful franchise would be made but it seems we may be getting more Mission: Impossible films sooner rather than later.

I am very excited to share the thrilling news that both director/writer Christopher McQuarrie and Tom Cruise are indeed returning for two more Mission: Impossible movies which is set to release in the summers of 2020 and 2021. How awesome is that?!

To think that we’ll be getting two! Mission: Impossible movies in the next two-three years is very, very exciting indeed.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.

‘Star Wars: Resistance’ Returns With a Compelling Episode

After a five-week hiatus Star Wars: Resistance returns with a cute little episode titled: Bibo. This is its synopsis: Neeku adopts a strange sea creature and gets way more than he bargained for when it brings chaos to the platform.

While this isn’t one of the best episodes in this season I did find it to be more enjoyable than most of the episodes in the first half of the season. The humor was okay, the character developments were interesting, and the action in the show was some of the best we’ve seen so far.

And while this is a bit of spoiler I have to share it with you all because I thought it was rather awesome.

There was this massive sea creature called a Rokkna and it was amazing. There aren’t many times when we get to see gigantic fantastical creatures in this franchise but this was one of those rare occurrences and I highly enjoyed that aspect of this episode.

No, this episode wasn’t my favorite in the series so far (Signal from Sector Six still holds the top spot for me) but if this is just the beginning of what’s to come in the coming weeks then the second half of this season is going to be very enjoyable indeed.

I’m giving this episode 85 out of 100 and 3 out of 5 stars. I would’ve given it a higher score but unfortunately, its blatant predictability stole from the episode’s quality.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day. May the Force be with you.

Black Widow’s Ten Most Awesome Moments

If you read my post yesterday you would know that I have recently watched Iron Man 2, a Marvel movie that I don’t often find myself watching. That, of course, is the film that introduces Black Widow for the first time in the MCU and it seems that the more I see her character the more I love her. So, on that note, I’m going to celebrate her awesomeness by displaying the ten moments that have made me love her.

10. Defeating Hawkeye

Hawkeye may not be one of the most powerful Avengers but his skill set is very high…which makes Black Widow defeating him all the more exciting. Their brief duel in The Avengers is easily one of the best scenes, to me, in the film and the way she defeats is so quick that he doesn’t even see it coming.

And not only did she win their duel but she also knocked Loki’s mind-control out of him. That’s pretty cool.

‘Iron Man 2’ Just May Be the Most Important Section of Iron Man’s Story

Tony Stark has been a part of the MCU since its inception a decade ago and that means he has the longest arc to his character. He has graced eight! films in the MCU and every movie adds something extra to his story but after recently revisiting Iron Man 2 for only the third time ever I realized that this film is kind of important to Tony’s character arc.

Iron Man is Tony’s origin story. We learn how he becomes Iron Man, we are introduced to his incessantly bombastic personality, and Pepper Potts is established as his love interest. It’s heralded as one of the greatest superhero movies of all time because it started something that would ultimately become a worldwide phenomenon; the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

There are some who think that Iron Man 2 was a step backward for the franchise and Tony Stark but I happen to love it for all of the above reasons. And, after seeing how Tony’s story has evolved, it feels even more relevant.

Is It Just Me or Is The New Trailer for ‘Star Wars: Resistance’ Kind of Epic?

If you’ve been following my blog you know that every Monday after the premiere of an episode of Star Wars: Resistance I have written a review of that particular episode. And, if you are familiar with those reviews most of the times they haven’t been exactly pleasant.

Star Wars: Resistance is catered to a younger audience which I am totally okay with but I don’t think that should justify the show for being highly unentertaining. I have, however, followed the story diligently and have patiently the restart of the first season.

The first episode is supposed to premiere this Sunday in the United States and while I wasn’t excited at first I’m rather thrilled to watch it after this trailer. Here’s the trailer.

I honestly wasn’t even going to watch the trailer but I’m so glad I did because it’s kind of amazing, from beginning to end. If this trailer is any indication of what’s to come Star Wars: Resistance is going to get a lot more interesting real soon and I. Can’t. Wait!

Seeing General Hux telling the First Order his raging speech just before the destruction of the New Republic highlights that the second half of this first season will eventually reach the timeline during The Force Awakens. That is an exciting prospect indeed because the second season will probably feature these characters in the timeline during the events of The Last Jedi…and beyond?

Who knows where this story is heading exactly but I’m ready to be taken along for the ride.

How has your view of Star Wars: Resistance changed after seeing this trailer? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

I. Love. MOVIES!
