Who’s Your Favorite: Tony and Pepper or Steve and Peggy?

When it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe romance may not be something that immediately comes to mind but the relationships built and established in this franchise are some of the greatest we’ve seen in cinema. And, at the top of the romance list, are two couples that have melted our hearts over the years; Tony Stark and Pepper Potts and Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter. These love stories were present all the way until Avengers: Endgame, with both stories concluding in two very different yet very satisfying ways.

For this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? I figured this would be the perfect topic, considering that the next few weeks will probably be filled with Star Wars content considering that the final trailer will drop tomorrow night. Enjoy! Continue reading Who’s Your Favorite: Tony and Pepper or Steve and Peggy?

A Movie Ranking: Will Smith

Will Smith is one of the few actors I can say I’ve never seen a bad movie involving him. No, not all of the films are the best movies I’ve ever seen but he chooses his films very well. I’ve seen so many of his movies, some even very recently, and because of his newest film, Gemini Man, which literally comes out today, it makes perfect sense to celebrate the renowned actor for this week’s A Movie Ranking. Enjoy!

QI’RA: Chapter Thirty-Eight

The Kiss

Qi’ra had never felt more special in her life. As she exited the Senate Building with the sword in hand everyone they passed glanced at her with shock. No weapons, besides the authorized personnel throughout the building, were allowed to have weapons in the vicinity, making her all the more intriguing.

She loved the feel of its weight in her hands. There was something unspeakably powerful about the sword that, as she held it her grip, gave her the guts to pursue her plan of eventually bringing Maul down and showing him who was boss. Continue reading QI’RA: Chapter Thirty-Eight

Will ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ Be the Most Romantic Installment in the Saga?

George Lucas described his epic space opera as being very similar to a soap opera and honestly, his words seem more palpable than ever.

In the Prequel and Original Trilogy, the romantic relationships were very simple. There was Anakin Skywalker and Padme Amidala and Han Solo and Princess Leia. The Sequel Trilogy has been a barrage of romantic possibilities. With different writers telling different stories between these characters, and each film not cementing a romantic relationship, The Rise of Skywalker is looking to be a romantic minefield of relationships that’ll have to play along with the adventure and drama which will ultimately culminate into, what the actors and J.J Abrams are saying, will be a “satisfying” conclusion.

Could this be a problem for the overall story of The Rise of Skywalker? I mean, just look at this slideshow. Continue reading Will ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ Be the Most Romantic Installment in the Saga?
