Throwback Friday: A Bunch of New Movie Trailers Have Arrived at San Diego Comic-Con

It’s San Diego Comic-Con week and the trailers for the future’s biggest hits are dropping left and right. Because this is Throwback Friday day, I thought it would be so much fun to look back on what exciting movie trailers dropped last year. Enjoy!

As you may know, SDCC has arrived and debuted movie and television news for the past weekend. This is always the most exciting time of the year for me because there is so much news that arrives surrounding films that I’m eager to hear about. Well, yesterday Warner Bros. debuted a bunch of trailers to get us excited for their movies arriving either later this year or early next year and I’m here to share them with you all. Enjoy!

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

If you were at all bummed out by that eensy-weensy sneak peek of Godzilla: King of the Monsters that was revealed the other day well this official trailer was released yesterday and I have to say, it definitely looks decent. I watched Godzilla four years ago thinking it was going to be positively awesome and it was very disappointing indeed. I mean, it was absolutely horrendous, which was a bummer because I’ve always wanted to see a really good, modern Godzilla movie.

Well, this film definitely looks like it’ll be better than that movie as it clearly shows more monsters and plenty of jaw-dropping destruction that’ll look amazing in IMAX. I’m pretty sure the story will be sub par but the action will probably be worth the admission fee and that’s enough to make me want to see this movie.

Throwback Friday: Why I Love My Local Indie Theater

I love movie theaters because every single one is different. The AMC theater in Times Square is nothing like the AMC theater in Disney World. Two theaters under the same franchise in the same town can be completely different. So when I went to my local indie theater for the first time to watch a beautiful documentary called The Eagle Huntress I was excited. You see, I had never been to such a small theater. How would my experience be, I kept asking myself. Would I like it?

I was pleasantly surprised. At the ticket counter, unlike regular movie theaters, there are special shirts specifically for the theater that you can buy. The popcorn bag sizes are cute and petite compared to the usual giant bags of popcorn. The soft drink sizes are also a lot more reasonable than a small soda you would get at AMC. There was local candy that I could get as well as the obvious candy choices like M&M’s.

The service was great; everyone was very friendly and helpful. That’s something you don’t experience in regular movie theaters. The theater only had three studios but they were very impressive. Two of the studios were large enough to fit about sixty people while the third studio that I went to could only hold about thirty people. The studios and the theater’s bathroom were very clean which is always nice.

As nice as this theater was I still love regular theaters because that’s where you can go see blockbusters in IMAX which is one of my favorite things to do. It’s refreshing to watch indie films though because they aren’t like normal blockbusters where something is exploding every twenty or so minutes. They instead are good movies that you really have to listen to which I love. If it wasn’t for my local indie theater I would’ve never known about Ahshopan’s great story in The Eagle Huntress. I can’t wait to go see another wonderful documentary or a lovely indie film that manages to engage me in its quiet storytelling.

I will always love IMAX theaters for the wonderful memories they have given me all of these years but my local indie theater now has a special place in my heart.

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

Throwback Friday: These Are the X-Men Characters I Want To See in the MCU

With the MCU moving to new horizons for Phase 4 and Disney acquiring Fox it’s inevitable that we’ll see the X-Men in the near future. In fact, technically the X-Men have already graced their presence in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver’s role in the franchise. How the X-Men will join the fray and which new actors will play these iconic characters is still a mystery but it’s an exciting mystery nonetheless.

And that’s why today, for this Throwback Friday post, I’m sharing with you all of the X-Men characters I’m most excited to see make their presence known in the MCU. Enjoy!

Magneto

I didn’t realize how cool Magneto was until my most recent viewing of X-Men: Days of Future Past. It was then that I realized how awesome this character actually was. I think Magneto would be such an epic character in an MCU setting and I’m hoping Kevin Feige is thinking the same as me.

Throwback Friday: Should Rey and Poe Have A Romance in ‘The Rise of Skywalker’?

The Last Jedi was supposed to answer Star Wars fans’ simmering questions left behind by The Force Awakens but it didn’t and now we’re still pleading for answers. Nearly everything surrounding this sequel has been a mystery (even the romance!), leaving one to wonder just how J.J Abrams is going to find a way to cram all of the answers to our questions in one film.

In terms of the romantic aspect of the film, people are immediately gravitating to several potential romantic pairings; Finn and Rey, Finn and Rose, Rey and Kylo Ren, Finn and Poe, oh the madness won’t end. But one potential couple no one is exactly talking about is Poe and Rey. It’s very far-fetched that the two characters may grow romantic feelings for one another but hey, anything is possible.

The reason for this potential romance is because of the brief exchange between Rey and Poe at the end of The Last Jedi. Now for me, I didn’t see anything between the two characters as they introduced themselves that sparked my future-couple spidey sense but a lot of people are wondering if they might end up becoming something more than just rebellion buddies. Personally, I think having them become a couple would be a terrible idea for several reasons.

One, Rey is just too awesome for Poe (sorry Poe.) Continue reading Throwback Friday: Should Rey and Poe Have A Romance in ‘The Rise of Skywalker’?

Throwback Friday: Should There Be An All-Female Avengers Movie and Who Should Be In It?

Over the years there has been a fascinating increase of female superheroes in the MCU. There has been such a rise of awesome heroines in this franchise in fact that Tessa Thompson, who plays the role of Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok, said that there should be an all-female Avengers movie. A group of actresses even went as far as to approach the top people in Marvel about the idea. And now, after that incredible scene in Avengers: Endgame featuring every (alive) heroine the thought of an Avengers movie featuring only women doesn’t seem so far-fetched after all. So, should there be an Avengers movie that highlights our favorite heroic heroines? Um…yeah!

We’ve seen progress in how women are portrayed in superhero movies. Wonder Woman got her first solo film in 2017 which featured not only the first female superhero to get her own movie but it had a female director at the helm as well. It ended up making just a little north of $800 million, proving that women could drive people to the movie theaters. Ant-Man and the Wasp wouldn’t collect as much money as Wonder Woman but it garnered highly positive reviews, many citing Wasp as a fantastic co-lead to Paul Rudd’s humorous Ant-Man. And Captain Marvel proved that Wonder Woman‘s success wasn’t a fluke as it made over a billion dollars at the box-office this spring.

Why shouldn’t Marvel take things to the next level by introducing a movie featuring a group of heroes that consists of only women. We saw what that could look like in Avengers: Endgame and it was legitimately awesome. But who should be a part of this heroic team? Well, that’s what I’m here to share with you. Enjoy!
