Palpatine Returns! Was it a Good Thing?

The Rise of Skywalker would bode the end of the Skywalker Saga. Meaning, J.J Abrams and co-writer Chris Terrio had to find a way to tie in all of the previous eight films into one film. One such character that could’ve easily brought the three trilogies together was indeed Palpatine/Darth Sidious who was believed to be dead in Return of the Jedi. But after hearing his infamous cackle at the end of the teaser trailer for The Rise of Skywalker, it seemed clear that Abrams had something fantastic up his sleeve. Unfortunately, that would not be the case.

DC Comics or Marvel: Which Franchise Is Your Favorite?

Superhero movies. They have become an expected delight to look forward to every year. And the two arbitrators behind this movement is DC Comics and Marvel. For decades these franchises have released films that have inspired generations of fans and brought joy to millions and they are continuing to do so. In just a little over a month, Captain Marvel will be hitting theaters and there will surely be plenty of individuals, including me, rolling into theaters to see it. And that’s why I wanted to make this the topic of this week’s segment of Who’s Your Favorite? Enjoy!

DC Comics

When I think of DC Comics the first superhero that comes to mind is Batman but before Michael Keaton made Batman cool in the late 1980s’ there was Christopher Reeves’ iconic portrayal of Superman. I’ve seen Superman maybe once or twice in my younger years and while I don’t remember the film very much I still can grasp in the recesses of my brain the magic of the movie. Specifically, the scene when Superman–to bring Lois Lane back to life–uses his incredible ability to turn back time by flying around the Earth multiple times. You could say my mind was blown!

16. The Mummy

When I heard they were remaking The Mummy I was kind of skeptical at first but then I heard that Tom Cruise was playing the lead and I got excited. Tom Cruise has been making fantastic movies for decades. There was no way he could star in a film about some explorers who run into real-life mummies and the movie end up becoming a fail. How terribly wrong I was. From the first trailer, I saw I knew this film wasn’t going to be as good as I had hoped but this movie wasn’t just boring or corny. It was poorly written, the plot was terrible, and it was painful watching Tom Cruise and Russel Crowe, who are both great actors, stoop down to the level of this horrid film.

I was hoping I was going to enjoy this movie but I ended up disliking nearly everything about it. This is undoubtedly the worst movie I’ve seen this year.

John Skywalker and Keeli Calrissian heard the news and couldn’t believe what they were hearing. On the way back to the city, Poe Dameron and Trish had been captured by a group of agents known as the Kaa. The Kaa was part of the forces brought on by The Whisper and apparently, they had located the underground eutopia and their friends were the victims of this discovery.
