What’s Your Favorite Leia Moment?

It’s another Sunday and that means it’s time to visit another segment of Who’s Your Favorite? Today, however, is rather special for Star Wars fans around the world because it is the late-great Carrie Fisher’s birthday (she would’ve been 62.) So, to honor the woman who has brought so many smiles to people across the globe, she is the subject of today’s Who’s Your Favorite?

Now, Leia has countless memorable moments during her time in this franchise but I’m going to take at least one exciting moment from each film that she’s graced for this list. Enjoy!

1. A Rogue One Surprise

Rogue One brought some fantastic surprises near the end of the film as it swiftly led into A New Hope‘s story and one of those shocking reveals was CGI Leia. Not only was it brilliant but it proved that technology could be used in truly exciting ways for future Star Wars films.

Who’s Your Favorite X-Men Character?

Considering that I’ve been watching so many X-Men movies lately I had to revisit this post for this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? Enjoy!

(My X-Men knowledge is still somewhat limited so I will be listing the characters I am most familiar with.)

Cyclops

cyclops

Cyclops has always been a cool character because of his interesting eye beam ability and the same can still be said from this most recent rendition of the character. While I never knew that much about the X-Men I still knew who Cyclops was when I was a kid and that shows the impact this hero had on me as a child. I can’t wait to see who will bring him to life this time around.

Nightcrawler

Nightcrawler-Kodi-Smit-Mcphee

Nightcrawler is pretty cool, actually. His teleporting abilities are pretty fantastic but it’s when he turns into a deadly wrecking machine that he really gets his chance to shine. I’ve only seen him in the newer X-Men movies so I’m interested to eventually see him in the older X-Men films as well.

Mystique

Mystique is easily one of the coolest concepts of a character in the superhero world. The fact that she’s this shape-shifting alien-ish sort of being is remarkable and it’s what makes her so intriguing. I like to think of her as the blue Black Widow.

It should be interesting to see what sort of cameos we may see as she shapeshifts into current or previously deceased MCU characters when she appears in later films.

Who’s Your Favorite ‘Star Wars’ Dad?

Star Wars is heavily wrapped around the basis of family and it’s Father’s Day! So, I’m asking you my fellow Star Wars fans, who’s your favorite Star Wars father? Here is my list of the galactic dads of the franchise.

Galen Erso

Galen Erso

Galen Erso is one of the secret heroes in the Star Wars universe as he purposely sabotaged the Death Star to eventually get blown up. He risked his life creating the diabolical plan and had to sacrifice so much to get it done. While he isn’t on the poster of Rogue One he was easily one of the film’s biggest contributors.

Darth Vader

Darth Vader just might be one of the most iconic movie fathers of all time. He may have played the part of the villain for the majority of the original trilogy but through all of those wires and that cold exterior was a heart of gold that couldn’t be denied. He helped end the reign of the Empire as he killed Palpatine and even though he died he perished doing what was right and that is why he’s such a great character.

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ or ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’: Which Movie Is Your Favorite?

Marvel has made plenty of entertaining films that have left fans of all ages clamoring for more but there are those rare gems in the franchise that are truly outstanding movies. Marvel is heralded for its incredible use of humor and Guardians of the Galaxy and Thor: Ragnarok is among the funniest installments in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But what makes them so great isn’t just the numerous amount of jokes but the truly enjoyable storyline and characters. Both of these films with its laugh-out-loud humor and vibrant colors brought a standard to the Marvel’s funnier installments and have become ultimate fan favorites.

That’s why, for this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? I decided to make this the topic. Here’s a closer look at each film’s similar aspects. Continue reading “‘Thor: Ragnarok’ or ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’: Which Movie Is Your Favorite?”

Which Marvel Heroine Has Your Favorite Outfit?

Why do we love Marvel movies? Is it the storylines, the phenomenal action, or is it the superheroes? It’s probably the superheroes, right? But what is it about these heroes that we love so much? Of course, we love their superpowers but if a hero looks wack then that superhero’s going to have a hard time grasping our undivided attention. And that’s why for the next few week’s segments of Who’s Your Favorite? I’m tackling the topic of outfits through Marvel, Star Wars, and DC Comics. I hope you enjoy! 🙂

(This post will stick to Marvel heroines that are only in the MCU. That means no X-Men or Deadpool characters.)

The Ancient One

The Ancient One isn’t awesome just because she’s a powerful sorcerer but her yellow robes make her stand out in the most appealing way.

And the hood’s pretty awesome too.

Nakia

Nakia is of the River tribe, hence her green clothing. Her Wakandan warrior garment is feminine yet fierce and perfectly represents Nakia in the most exciting way.

And for formal events, she’s breathtaking in this beautiful dress that’s still vibrantly representative of the Wakandan river tribe.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is a good Star Wars film with plenty of great moments. It’s a riveting adventure from beginning to end and truly captures the essence of what Star Wars films are all about. But what makes it such a fun installment to the franchise? The film’s various scenes of course. From beginning to end this movie deals out incredible moments that will bring a smile to any casual Star Wars movie watcher’s face. So, on this week’s segment of Who’s Your Favorite, I’m asking you what your favorite scene in Solo is? Here are the film’s most important moments.

The Speeder Chase on Corellia

The film doesn’t waste time getting to the action and the speeder chase that takes place as Han and Qi’ra strive to escape Corellia is beyond awesome. It features Han’s incredible piloting skills before he got his hands behind the controls of a ship complemented with an upbeat musical score that made the scene even more riveting.
