A Special Fan Art Thursday

It’s been a day since Loki but my thoughts are still very much on the God of Mischief’s elating episode and the series so far. Today, in honor of the series’ first three glorious episodes, I’m sharing some fan art inspired by each episode from the incomparable Uzuri Art. Enjoy!

The first episode of Loki really beat our favorite mischievous Asgardian down bit by bit until he was a crying, disheveled husk of himself. This piece encapsulates his “I don’t have time for this. I’m a God” personality in a nutshell.

Throwback Thursday: Finishing ‘Sherlock’: A ThrillIng Ride from Beginning to End

I think Benedict Cumberbatch is my favorite actor now and it’s because of this show.

My first introduction to Cumberbatch was via Star Trek: Into Darkness where he played the villain, Khan. I remember seeing him for the first time in the trailer and thinking, “Wow, he looks cool.” My father took my sister and me to see it and while I pretty much don’t remember anything about the movie or Cumberbatch in the film his impact in the trailer, alone, struck me.

The second movie I saw that featured Cumberbatch was The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug where he voiced Smaug who, by the way, I feel is the greatest onscreen dragon of all time.

His voice rumbled through my very soul as I watched the film for the first time at an IMAX midnight showing with my family. He was, in short, amazing! He brought such a grandiosity, a sense of menace and real threat to Bilbo and the dwarves that he was one of the reasons why I still happen to enjoy The Desolation of Smaug whenever I get far enough to see the dragon.

‘Mulan’ And All of Its Flaws

Mulan is now available free of charge to all Disney+ streamers and so I thought it would be the perfect time to revisit the film after my second viewing yesterday (I was one of those people who paid $30 to see it early) and share my thoughts with you all.

In short, as a little girl, Mulan was my favorite Disney princess. She was brave and fierce, qualities in which inspired and wowed me. When I heard they were doing a live-action version I couldn’t be more excited, especially when they chose to forego songs to make it a more epic experience. I was like, “Heck yeah, let’s do this!”

And yet now, after a few viewings, I only see the flaws in Mulan instead of the good and boy are there a lot of flaws. So, let’s get to them.

My Evaluation of Episode 3 of ‘Loki’

Oh, there’s so much to talk about. Usually, I wait until tomorrow to talk spoilers and what-not but not today. Today, I have to talk about the episode now while the juices are flowing.

With that being said: SPOILERS FOR EPISODE 3 AHEAD!

Okay, here we go.

Our First Look At the New Suits for ‘Shazam: Fury of the Gods’ Is Here!

Shazam! was the surprise that I wasn’t expecting in 2019. I saw the trailers, I watched the tv spots, but I didn’t think the movie was going to be that good. Then I saw its shocking 90% Rotten Tomatoes score (I think it was 92% at the time) and my family and I went to go see it in IMAX. Suffice it to say, we loved it!

And the plot twist of all the kids becoming Shazam heroes was a surprise I wasn’t expecting. We all clapped with glee in response.

Since then, I’ve watched the movie several times. In fact, I was watching Shazam! last night on TBS. It’s such a fun movie with such a lovable cast and storyline. Unsurprisingly, besides The Batman, it’s the DC Comics movie I’m most excited for and right now they’re filming.

Because the director, David F. Sandberg, understands that there will be photos of the film leaking online he went ahead and shared our first look at the new suits for our Shazam family. Here they are.

Yep, that’s an upgrade ladies and gentlemen! And in case you don’t see the difference…

I Finished ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ The Other Day…But Why Was It So Hard?

I’ve been trying to finish Solo: A Star Wars Story for over a year now. Here’s the drill.

The first step to watching Solo is experiencing extreme boredom. Once I am extremely bored I always manifest the idea: “I’m going to watch Solo today.” There are usually three places I end up stopping; after the train heist (which is the best part of the movie), when they reach Kessel, or during the Kessel Run. If I make it past the Kessel Run sequence I’ll finish the movie.

When I watched Solo for the first time in theaters three years ago I was pleasantly surprised. The movie was actually pretty entertaining. But after subsequent viewings I began to dislike the movie more and more.

Don’t get me wrong. It’s not bad. In fact, it’s a solid Star Wars movie. But there is one common denominator that makes it a challenge to finish (and enjoy) this movie…and that is Alden Ehrenreich.
