‘John Wick: Chapter 3-Parabellum’ Is a Truly Fantastic Action Movie

I love a good action movie and John Wick: Chapter 3-Parabellum is undoubtedly one of the best I’ve seen.

A couple of years ago I watched John Wick: Chapter 2 and it wasn’t bad but I wasn’t thoroughly impressed. I only watched half of the film and never chose to finish it. Parabellum never suffers from a boring plot or lack of action sequences. The stunts in this movie are phenomenal, the characters were exceptional, and boy, was it everything I wanted and more.

Let me warn you though, John Wick: Chapter 3 is not for the faint of heart.

The Dark Knight Lives (SIXTY)

Gloria Ramirez couldn’t believe what she was seeing through Robin’s eyes. Pandemonium erupted as masked hooligans from what appeared to be the sewers appeared, driving headlong into the procession and murdering innocents left and right.

Robin responded not with a response but instead by swinging down from his perch, vaulting into the melee and using his staff to whack bad guys left and right. Screams of terror permeated the scene. There were gunshots left and right. Police officers were joining the fray, attacking the violent gang of thugs.

Gloria rose from her seat.

“I have to help him,” she said. Continue reading The Dark Knight Lives (SIXTY)

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)

Disney’s New Era of Storytelling Will Be Something To Witness This Decade

Disney loves franchise world-building. It’s what has made the House of Mouse a powerhouse in the last half of the 2010s’. In fact, last year was one of Disney’s best years at the box-office with films becoming billion-dollar hits left and right.

Captain MarvelAvengers: Endgame would become the highest-grossing film of all time nearly making $3 billion, AladdinThe Lion KingSpider-Man: Far from Home, and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, these were all of the Disney films that made over a billion dollars last year. And Disney isn’t slowing down.

This decade is almost staggering to think about when it comes to the stories we can expect this decade and leading the charge is Marvel, Star Wars, and the Avatar films.

Marvel is almost dizzying to think about when it comes to all of the entertainment we can expect in just the new few years. Continue reading Disney’s New Era of Storytelling Will Be Something To Witness This Decade
