Yep, it’s happening. Paramount is making a new Star Trek movie which is set to come out in 2023. I can’t believe I’m kind of excited but after watching the Abrams trilogy, which I enjoyed more than the Sequel Trilogy (sorry Star Wars), I have to admit. I’m kind of pumped.
Who will the movie star? No idea, but I hope it’s good.

I love a good mystery and The Silence of the Lambs is the best one conceived on the big screen with Anthony Hopkins’ unforgettably iconic Hannibal Lecter and Jodie Foster’s perfect written heroine, Clarice Starling starring alongside one another in a thriller worth watching.
While trying to find something to watch on HBO Max I ran into Prisoners, a haunting thriller starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal that came out in 2013. It sits at #200 on IMDb’s Top 250 movies and learning this I had to check it out. Here’s the synopsis.
I knew this show was going to be good, that was a no-brainer, but what the fourth episode of this series just delivered was fantastic on a whole other level. We’re on the latter half of the show and that means things are starting to go down. Character development is on full throttle, the action scenes aren’t just fun but are actually starting to mean something now, and just like the Captain America movies, the tone of the show has completely shifted. I don’t know what’s going to happen next or how this show will end with only two episodes left but I’m here for the intense and emotional ride.
The MVP of this week’s episode, however, is undoubtedly Wyatt Russel a.k.a John Walker. He gives a heck of a performance as the new Cap and exploring the character’s flaws. It’s very clear that this new Captain America is NOT Steve Rogers and that Sam Wilson is the exact opposite, or more appropriately, the perfect person to embody the role as the new Captain America. I know that at some point Sam is going to take on the mantle and this show is building to that moment. When it happens, I’m probably going to shed a little tear.
Loki is coming and I am excited. Unlike with WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki is the series that I know the least about. With WandaVision I knew the series was going to be inspired by the House of M storyline in the comics, for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier I understood that the series would focus on Sam’s journey into becoming Captain America and would feature Isaiah Bradley, a black Super Soldier whose legacy was lost to history due to racism. But with Loki I have no idea what comic it’s based off of or where the story could go and that makes it SO intriguing to me.
So, today, I decided to share five things I want to see in Loki. Enjoy!
Thor and Loki have had such an interesting relationship. It’s been tumultuous but it’s also been heartwarming and a key element to the God of Thunder’s story. He’s also one half of the Loki sandwich, meaning Thor is just as much a part of Loki’s story as he’s a cog in Thor’s journey.
So, if we’re getting a Loki series, it only makes sense that we would see Thor at some point in the show. In fact, we literally hear him mention Heimdall and his brother in the first trailer so…let’s do this!
Loki is one of my favorite characters in the MCU because he can be just so darn fun. He’s funny, devious, he always has a trick up his sleeve, and yet behind this mischievous facade is a man with a deep reservoir of feeling and compassion that comes into play time and time again through the MCU. By Infinity War, he had gone back to his brotherly ways and literally risked everything in his attempt to kill Thanos.
When he was choked to death by Thanos I actually got teary because I was so fond of this character and then Marvel Studios said, “Surprise! He’s not dead yet.”
Turns out Endgame brought Loki back to life, albeit in a weird way, and we will get a chance to see that in the next Marvel Disney+ series after TFATWS and The Bad Batch in Loki.
According to the latest trailer, he’s been assigned by the TVA (Time Travel Agents, I guess) to help them get the alternate realities back in line…and a whole lot of mayhem is likely going to ensue.
The trailer showed us plenty of Loki being mischievous as ever and I’m really hoping this show allows the Asgardian to be a royal, non-apologetic pain in the rear end without particularly giving him a hero streak because that would be fun to watch.
Think about it. This Loki is the one from the time of The Avengers, the version who hasn’t lost his mother yet and is still in pure villain mode. This Loki is not only the most devious but he is also the most willing to mess stuff up and I. Can’t. Wait!
Do you want Loki to stay villainous throughout the duration of the series? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

I love watching Best Pictures. I’m trying to see all of them, in fact. Yesterday while filing through television channels with my family we happened to stop on Showtime and playing was The Deer Hunter.
I think about forty minutes of the film had already started but it didn’t matter because the movie stopped us in our tracks. We could tell instantly that it was going to be a film worth watching but we didn’t know how great our intuition was going to be but we found out very soon.
The Deer Hunter is no walk in the park. It is a deeply emotional film that deals with the Vietnam War and its devastating impact on some of our finest Americans. In it stars Robert de Niro, Christopher Walken (Walken would win his only Oscar for ), and Meryl Streep who were all nominated for Oscars for this movie.
The Deer Hunter is a film that’s going to stick with you and yeah, it made me cry quite a bit actually. Watching this, I suddenly realized how much weaker a film like Da 5 Bloods actually is, which also is set in the Vietnam War. Yeah, Da 5 Bloods is a well-written movie but The Deer Hunter far exceeds it emotionally.
There aren’t a lot of Best Pictures that I have seen that deserve Best Picture but this one did. It’s a phenomenal movie.
I’ll give it 100 out of 100 and 5 out of 5 stars.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
