The Dark Knight Lives (NINE)

Gotham Park; it was located in the center of the city, the safest part of the city, making ventures to it after nightfall welcoming rather than frightening.

Katherine Kane exited a cab, walking through the park’s iron gates that read GOTHAM PARK overhead. Her hands were stuffed in her pockets to keep them warm against the bitter evening cold and white vapor seeped from her mouth. The bricked walkways were still wet from the brief storm that had shadowed Gotham and the well-lit park was eerily silent. Continue reading The Dark Knight Lives (NINE)

I Want to See Doctor Octopus in ‘Spider-Man 3’

Before Tom Holland’s rendition of the iconic Spider-Man, I was never a fan of the character. The villains, however, that’s another story.

From Green Goblin to Kingpin to Doctor Octopus and Venom, Spider-Man has some of the greatest comic book villains of all time. I’ve just recently been introduced to The Vulture and Mysterio thanks to Spider-Man: Homecoming and Far from Home as well as The Prowler and Scorpion thanks to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and they are just as fascinating.

Spider-Man 3 will have to deliver on an even greater villain for Peter Parker to have to face with of course a big-time actor to fill that role and that antagonist I want to see on the big screen is Doctor Octopus.

Ever since I was a kid watching the old Spider-Man cartoon Doctor Octopus has been one of my favorite villains of all time. It would simply be wish fulfillment to see this character on the big screen, in IMAX, played by some fantastic actor who’ll bring Doc Ock to life in a way I’d never thought I’d see.

Throwback Friday: The Five Best Scenes of ‘The Last Jedi’

The new trailer for The Rise of Skywalker is almost upon us. Like with all new movies, there’s a time when we don’t know what’s going to happen in the film or what to expect. And then, months after seeing the movie for the first time, we get the chance to watch it over and over again and the memories of mystery surrounding the film are gone.

Here’s a look back at a post I wrote after just buying The Last Jedi on Blu-Ray early last year. Enjoy!

Okay, so I’ve just recently owned The Last Jedi and after seeing the movie eight times now I am more blown away by the film than I was after I went to see it in the movie theaters all those months ago. The story is impeccably designed, the character development is riveting, the cinematography is beautiful, the action is phenomenal, and overall it’s undoubtedly, to me, the best Star Wars movie ever made. It even surpasses the genius of The Empire Strikes Back which is now boring in comparison.

(Present day: Too bad this elation dissipated. Rogue One has returned to being my favorite Star Wars film and The Empire Strikes Back has reclaimed its title as my 2nd favorite film in the franchise. I now have The Last Jedi sitting in 4th place just behind The Force Awakens, which is still pretty good.)

The only setback of this movie’s entertaining quality is the difficulty I’m going to have a hard time discerning my five favorite scenes from the movie because there are so many fantastic scenes it feels unfair to leave some parts out but I’m going to try my best. Continue reading Throwback Friday: The Five Best Scenes of ‘The Last Jedi’

QI’RA: Chapter Forty-Six

Nienye’s Sentence

Sitting in her room aboard Dryden Vos’s yacht, First Light, Qi’ra couldn’t believe T-38 was dead. She had taken the cyborg for granted and now that her voice was missing, that her presence was no longer felt aboard this yacht that she called home, she now realized how much he had grown to need T-38’s companionship.

Now, without her, there was a deep void. A void that Nienye had created. She couldn’t believe it. She trusted Nienye. She even had admitted to herself that she was in love with him. Only for him to stab her in the back and T-38 would end up becoming the consequence of this deception. Continue reading QI’RA: Chapter Forty-Six
