Here Are the Best Looking Movies Coming This Fall

Fall is coming and that means the fall movie season is at our doorstep and I have to say, the upcoming films set to arrive at the back half of 2019 look amazing. So, on that note, here’s a lineup of movies you may want to set your calendar date for.

IT: Chapter Two

Twenty-seven years after their first encounter with the terrifying Pennywise, the Losers Club have grown up and moved away, until a devastating phone call brings them back.

Like horror? Interested in the IT franchise? Well, not only does IT: Chapter Two look wet-your-pant scary but it actually looks pretty good. This will be one to watch.

Arrives September 6 (in IMAX.) Continue reading Here Are the Best Looking Movies Coming This Fall

‘Avengers: Endgame’: A Hero’s Redemption Part 3

Captain America is one of the most heroic characters to ever be brought to the big screen but, like all great heroes, he does have flaws. What flaws you may ask? Well, there aren’t many, but his dogmatic view of the world can clash with others, leaving people feeling like he’s a bit of a stuck-up pretty boy.

Captain America: Civil War was the first time his views came into direct conflict with his fellow Avengers and it led to him becoming a fugitive/Secret Avenger. It was during this time that he became more hardened and unwilling to play by the rules but when the world needed him he didn’t waste time returning to the forefront to save the day. Unfortunately, his fracturing of The Avengers in Civil War led The Avengers to get defeated by Thanos, hence the Infinity Snap.

His redemptive arc in Endgame isn’t as blatant as Black Widow or Nebula’s but there’s still a common thread between most of these heroes that once again reiterates the brilliance behind the writing of Avengers: Endgame. So, on that note, let’s get to Captain America’s section of this series. Enjoy! Continue reading ‘Avengers: Endgame’: A Hero’s Redemption Part 3

QI’RA: Chapter Six

Nienye’s Story

Nienye loved the exhilaration of battle. At home on Takodana hunting in the dense forests with his father had been a daily pleasure. The sheer adrenaline flowing through one’s veins while taking on a Jorker; a fierce boar with lethal tusks and spike-covered skin, was a feeling unlike any other. One day, when his father was too ill to join him, he left to go hunt alone. That day a bunch of mercenaries arrived at his village looting and pillaging. No one in the village survived.

I’ve Been Nominated for the Liebster Award!

It was a casual Tuesday afternoon. I was watching an old episode of Beat Shazam when I suddenly got the urge to check my Twitter and I soon discovered that the wonderful, super kind blogger Undercover Superhero nominated me once again for an award. And so, as always, it’s time to list some rules, share some facts about myself, answer and ask some more questions, and nominate more bloggers. Yippee!

‘Black Panther’ Resides In Its Own Corner and That’s Why It Is Such A Great Movie

After recently watching Black Panther for the first time after owning Avengers: Endgame on Blu-Ray I was quickly reminded why this became the first superhero movie to garner an Oscar nomination for Best Picture. This movie is SO good, written with a deceptively complex storyline that pleases both the masses and the most snobbish critics. So, because I had such a fun time watching this film last night, I decided to revisit a post I wrote about it last year that perfectly sums up how I’m feeling right now. Enjoy!

The main reason Black Panther was so successful is that, while it definitely feels like a Marvel movie, the writers didn’t incorporate too much of the MCU into the film, which they easily could’ve done.
