Captain America: Secret War (THIRTY-FOUR)

Sam Wilson paced. He always paced when he was in a cell. He didn’t know why. He just didn’t like the idea of sitting still. Wanda Maximoff was the exact opposite. She sat completely still, her unblinking gaze facing forward and her knees drawn up to her chest. Her expression was so blank sometimes Sam would pause and intently look at her to make sure she was still breathing. And every time she was.

Being in a cell without the aid of sunlight left one disoriented. Sam believed it had been twenty-four hours since they Dr. Frost had come to see them but he wasn’t sure. For all he knew, it could’ve been only four hours. He was certain about one thing though. He had been in here far too long.

He walked over to the glass and punched it again. Shaking his hand free of the pain he shook his head with annoyance. They needed to get out of here. They had to get out of here.

Another Stunning Classic: ‘A Place in the Sun’

A year-old podcast featuring two of my favorite people in Hollywood, Spike Lee and Alec Baldwin, led me to two great Oscar-winning classics; Lawrence of Arabia and A Place in the Sun.

I watched Lawrence of Arabia a few months ago and it’s safe to say, I was blown away. It’s undoubtedly one of my favorite movies of all time and probably the prettiest film I’ve ever seen…on top of that.

A Place in the Sun may have gotten beaten by An American in Paris for Best Picture (and I’m not mad with that decision) but it did take home six Oscars, and for good reason. This movie had my emotions jumping all over the place!

Montgomery Clift and Elizabeth Taylor were (and still are) deemed Hollywood’s “most beautiful couple” and I’m not surprised. In their prime, they were beautiful people who helped make this film even more enchanting. The story, though, left me reeling as its story continued to evolve until the conclusion which had me on the verge of tears. When the movie went off I was so pleased with the result but actually quite upset too. Geez, this movie was pretty entertaining.

I’m giving this movie 97 out of 100 and 4.5 out of 5 stars.

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

Yes! Finally! Marvel Studios has given us a tangible look at something new and it isn’t The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (😭) but instead is WandaVision (😁).
