‘Avengers: Endgame’: A Hero’s Redemption Part 5

Thor has lost a lot over the years. First, he was banished from Asgard and had Mjolnir taken away from him. Secondly, he lost his brother, Loki only to find out that he had lived and was now on a hellbent mission to take over Earth and be “king.” Then he lost his mother to a secret attack from some dark elves. Then he thought he lost Loki yet again in the fight against Malekith! Then he lost his father, Odin, who finally got weak and died which followed him officially losing Mjolnir as his super-evil sister Hela destroyed it. He was forced to watch his home, Asgard, get destroyed. He lost half of his people, watched his best friend, Heimdall die, and watched for the last and final time his brother Loki die. (Oh, and Jane dumped him.)

Thor’s story has not been easy but despite all of this loss he still remained a hero which this post will highlight. Enjoy!

To understand the full scope of Thor’s depression in Avengers: Endgame we have to go back to the end of Infinity War when Thor nearly killed Thanos. He thought he had saved the day, that Thanos had been finished, but his aim wasn’t true, and Thanos would end half of all life despite his greatest efforts.

The guilt and regret that ate away at his very being sent Thor into a downward spiral of deep depression but just when it seems Thor’s fall from glory is absolute he finds a way to pick himself back up and be the hero that we all know him to be.

Movie Review Flashback: Is ‘Parasite’ Worth Winning Best Picture?

There is a popular phrase spoken by individuals who are seeking stardom; ‘Fake it ’till you make it.’ Translated: Pretend to be something greater than you are until one day you actually are great. That is the basis of Parasite and how the consequences of the ‘Fake it ’till you make it’ strategy really looks.

Let me be clear. Parasite is not the best movie I’ve seen but it is worthy of its 99% score on Rotten Tomatoes. The story is very clear.

A poor family in South Korea manages to infiltrate a rich family by working for them, providing themselves a better way of life. What transpires is a dark imagining of the consequences of deception and how the phrase ‘skeletons in the closet’ gets taken to the next level.

It truly is an artful film that concludes in, spoiler alert, a lot of blood. Whose blood, I won’t tell, but things get pretty ugly. Continue reading Movie Review Flashback: Is ‘Parasite’ Worth Winning Best Picture?

Could Jannah and Her Fellow Stormtroopers Have the Force?

A few years ago we were introduced to a character unlike any other in the Star Wars movies, a stormtrooper who became a rebel. Not only was he different than most characters in the franchise but he would wield a lightsaber into battle and have some serious Force-sensitive tendencies.

Since 2016 after having watched The Force Awakens quite a few times I began to wonder, is Finn Force-sensitive? Sure enough, it was confirmed to be the case in The Rise of Skywalker. Now I’m beginning to ask another question; are Jannah and her fellow rebellious stormtroopers also one with the Force? Continue reading Could Jannah and Her Fellow Stormtroopers Have the Force?
