The Evolution of Thor

Thor was, for a long while, one of my least favorite Avengers simply because he was kind of lame, if I’m being honest. I knew Thor from the cartoons and the God of Thunder was quite epic in those cartoons but when I saw the live-action version of the character he just didn’t seem very cool to me, at all. First of all, he was too pretty to be the character in my opinion and he just didn’t ooze that stern epic quality that I had grown accustomed to knowing when it comes to Thor but throughout the years I’ve grown to like him more and more and now when he returns in Avengers: Infinity War I am legitimately excited to see him. So, as I count down the days until the release of the epic blockbuster, here’s the story of his evolution throughout the years. Enjoy!

Thor (2011)

I remember going to go see Thor in theaters back in May of 2011 and I was excited to see it then but when I walked out of that movie theater I was extremely disappointed. The story of Thor becoming, well, Thor wasn’t what I expected and it just wasn’t a great movie. Now I did highly enjoy the first part of the movie when Thor was still in the other realms of the galaxies but as soon as he crashed to Earth the movie slowly began to turn upside down for me. After a while I was just waiting for the film to end. But in terms of Thor’s story this film presented him with one of his greatest challenges as he had to discover what it meant to eventually become the king of Asgard. Still, unfortunately, this movie was pretty boring and it wasn’t a great debut for the God of Thunder.

A New Trailer and Poster for ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Has Arrived

Last night during American Idol the second trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story finally debuted and for the most part, I enjoyed it. Check it out:

So, here’s how I feel about this trailer and what it means for the movie.

The Negatives

I LOVE Star Wars as you can probably tell from my blog but I’m also very picky as well. I love Star Wars when it’s great and I only like Star Wars when it’s kind of mediocre. This movie seems to revolve in the realm of being great and mediocre at the same time and this is why.

1. The Music

Music is highly important for movie trailers. Music mainly illustrates the tone of a film but it also can make or break a trailer. I feel that the music for this trailer both made and broke this trailer. In the teaser the music was my favorite aspect of the trailer, along with the visuals of course. In this trailer I like the music at first with that country-western tang at the beginning and then it gets a little, well, fast paced and regular. I’ve seen many trailers with this action-based music and for the most part those movies usually turned out to be alright but not great. Now this is Star Wars we’re talking about and I know this won’t be the actual music of the movie but the fact that they put it to the trailer is a tad bit worrying.
