Fan Art Wednesday

It’s Fan Art Wednesday and it’s time to share two new pieces that are utterly mind-blowing. Enjoy.

1. Gandalf and the Balrog of Morgoth

Spoiler alert, I’m a The Lord of the Rings fan. I have been since I was a kid. I can definitively say I’ve probably seen The Fellowship of the Ring over a thousand times in my lifespan. That’s how much I love these movies, particularly this one, and this scene is one of the best in cinema. So epic, so emotionally incredible, so well-acted…just amazing.

My sister brought this scene to life in such an imaginative way, providing a different perspective to what was already an incredible moment.

2. Approaching Darth Vader’s Castle

Kylo Ren is one of the best characters conceived in Star Wars, even despite his lackluster conclusion in The Rise of Skywalker. And yes, the final film in the Skywalker Saga failed to deliver what would’ve been one of the greatest moments in the movie; Kylo Ren going to his grandfather’s castle, Darth Vader’s castle.

My sister brought this missed opportunity to life in a way that wowed individuals, including me. I can’t get enough of this piece. It’s simply stunning.

Make sure to follow my sister on Instagram at UzuriArt where you can see more of her impressive pieces on a daily basis.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have an amazing day.

‘Little’ Is the Wholesome Comedy That I Expected

I love a good comedy and last year’s Little was one that caught my eye. The concept–an uber-mean and wealthy boss is turned into a kid and has to deal with life as a child, was interesting enough to make me want to see the film. Yesterday, that is exactly what my family and I did and we loved it from beginning to end.

Yes, the movie is predictable but there are some legitimately funny moments throughout the entire film. The writing is well-done, the pop culture references are spot-on, the movie veers into Corny-ville every now and then, but at the film’s conclusion, my family and I couldn’t hide the happy tears that were beginning to form in our eyes.

Sometimes a good movie doesn’t involve a complex storyline with plot twists and tear-jerkingly emotional scenes that add to the already-riveting drama. Sometimes a good movie is one that simply makes you smile from beginning to end. Little did that for me.

I’m giving this movie 91 out of 100 and 4 out of 5 stars. It wasn’t perfect but it sure was entertaining.

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

The Dark Knight Lives (FIFTY-NINE)

Pamela Isley and Harley Quinn liked The Penguin but they weren’t his loyal compatriots. They were simply his partners and sometimes, as partners, they needed to put their foot down.

The Penguin wanted to kill Robin. They understood that. But before him sat a true opportunity to shock the city in a way that would truly leave everyone shaking in their boots. The Penguin was on a straight-and-narrow path but he lacked a vision for the legitimate psychological domination of Gotham. Continue reading The Dark Knight Lives (FIFTY-NINE)
