Captain America: Secret War (THIRTY-ONE)

Shuri held a beautiful necklace made out of lion’s teeth and vibranium beads in her hand, tears rolling down her cheeks. Her brother had made it for her on her twelfth birthday. It was still the greatest birthday gift she had ever gotten.

And now he was captured, forced to bend to the doctor’s will even though Shuri knew, with every fiber of her being, that he wished he could fight back. But how? How could they defy this terrible foe that had already defeated them with unnerving ease?

I Have a New Best Friend: His Name is ‘Sherlock’

I’ve been looking for a new series to binge-watch like I binge-watched Star Wars: Rebels and it just so happens that this particular series is the seven-year-long running BBC mystery, Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch in the titular role and Martin Freeman as his trusty right-hand man, Dr. Watson.

I’m one episode in from the first season and I’m already in love with this show. The modern take on Sherlock Holmes is marvelous, Cumberbatch is so much better at playing this character than Robert Downey Jr. (sorry Downey Jr.), and I’m just really loving the entire vibe of the show.

The cinematography, the witty screenplay, the suspense and strange crimes. This seems like it’s going to be a lot of fun to watch over the next few weeks and as I complete each season I will share my thoughts on the season and what I’m excited to see next.

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

The Five Greatest Trilogies/Quadrilogies, According to IMDb

Movie trilogies. They don’t show up often but when they are done correctly, they can be some of the greatest stories ever told. Here’s a look at, according to IMDb, the five greatest trilogies of all time.

5. The Avengers Quadrilogy

Marvel Studios has had its fair share of enjoyable content but its Avengers movies are some of the best comic book movies ever made.

The Avengers bodes a solid 8/10 stars rating on IMDb and even though it has been pushed out of the Top 250 movies on the site, it still sits as one of the highest-rated comic book films on IMDb.

Avengers: Age of Ultron was garnered a lot less favorable by viewers around the world, dropping to 7.3/10, which is still a pretty good score all things considered.

Avengers: Infinity War, however, has the highest score of the four films with a whopping 8.4/10 rating and I’m not surprised. It has some of the best character interactions in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a bunch of delightful action sequences, some hilariously humorous moments, and it’s super emotional. It was this film that made Endgame earn 1.2 billion! dollars in its opening weekend alone, which would thus give it the legs to go on and becoming the highest-grossing movie of all time.

And Avengers: Endgame‘s score is not shabby either with a nice 8.3/10 score on IMDb. It isn’t thought of as highly as the third installment in the Avengers story but it’s still considered to be a worthy ending to an epic moment of storytelling.
