Throwback Friday: I’m Convinced That Captain Phasma Isn’t Gone

This is hilarious! Looking back at this post that I wrote last April about Captain Phasma playing a role in The Rise of Skywalker is actually really funny. At the time, I was so heartbroken that Captain Phasma, one of the coolest characters to appear in this franchise, was gone that I refused to believe the obvious fact. Now, seventeen months later, looking back at this post is actually quite the comic relief. So, for this week’s Throwback Friday, here’s a look back at why I was so certain that Captain Phasma would play a role in The Rise of Skywalker. Enjoy!

The Force Awakens introduced some exciting new characters to the Star Wars universe and one of those incredible new additions was Captain Phasma. I remember seeing some concept art for The Force Awakens in the early months of 2014 and one of the most interesting pieces of art was the one that highlighted Phasma in concept form. It was literally one of the coolest things I had ever seen. Then, when I found out that this incredible new stormtrooper was a woman I was like, “WHAAAT!” She was so awesome!!! And then I watched The Force Awakens and I was like, “Huh?” There was so much hype surrounding that character and she ended up playing a ridiculously minor role that quite possibly didn’t need to be in the movie. She was simply eye candy for the film and a chance for Disney to say they introduced the first female villain to a Star Wars movie.

What’s Your Favorite Padme Look: Part 1?

There are a lot of beautiful and imaginatively inventive outfits that are made for characters in cinema but it’s kind of obvious that Padme has the greatest wardrobe of all of the characters. From The Phantom Menace to Revenge of the Sith, Padme’s style is outstanding with a capital O and so very extensive that her segment will take three days to study. So on that note let’s look at her outfits in The Phantom Menace.

Classic Red Dress

So perfect, so illustrious, so powerful, Queen Amidala demands your attention in this fascinating getup. This was the look she wore for the first time we saw her in The Phantom Menace and it was very apparent that this woman, this young queen, was a boss.

Throwback Friday: Movie Rumor: The ‘Black Widow’ Movie May Be the MCU’s First R-Rated Film

The long-awaited Black Widow movie is currently filming and rumors are circulating that Disney is considering making this film the first R-rated entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

While this may seem a bit shocking to most I’m actually not surprised. The Black Widow movie is supposed to be a prequel that will surely highlight Natasha’s role as an agent for the KGB before she joined S.H.I.E.L.D and, considering the brief flashes of information regarding her past, it’s very dark. Natasha has tried and succeeded in leaving the atrocities of her past behind but if we are to fully understand that darker section of her life the movie should be rated R so nothing can be held back.

Of course, we have grown used to the MCU providing family-friendly content and it definitely seems jarring to think that there would finally be a film that’s catered to adult audiences only but it makes all the sense in the world. Natasha’s past is dark. The writers shouldn’t water down what could be a truly incredible story of redemption for one of the world’s most feared and ruthless assassins to appease children.

Now, do I want the Black Widow movie to be rated R? Um, I love that this franchise has kept everything PG-13 up to this point but if it’ll help Black Widow’s movie be as great as it can be then I’ll gladly accept the R-rating. Besides, Black Widow’s story in the comics has never been catered to children anyway so…

I thank you for reading and I hope you have an amazing day.

Padme’s Ten Best Looks

There are a lot of beautiful and imaginatively inventive outfits that are made for characters in cinema. Star Wars is a field day of unique but practical looking clothing that gives each character their own identity and Padme’s clothing, throughout the prequel trilogy, was stunning, to say the least.

As a child, my sister and I would discuss which outfits were more beautiful and marvel at the gorgeousness of Padme’s dresses. Even now, I still find myself staring at Padme’s wardrobe in sheer awe. No Star Wars character has come close to having a ravishing clothing collection as beautiful as hers. But not only were the clothes but the hairstyles and accessories paired with each dress or jumpsuit were just as impressive.

Today I would like to share with you my ten favorite looks from Padme Amidala. Enjoy!

 

10. Wedding Dress

When Padme Amidala got married it was pretty much a big deal and she was going to make sure she looked more beautiful than the very environment surrounding her. This dress flatters her beautifully and the hairstyle is just as magnificent.

And from far away it’s even more spectacular, flowing so perfectly with the lovely head covering melding with the dress. This dress makes me wonder what Leia’s wedding dress looked like. Continue reading Padme’s Ten Best Looks

My Introduction to the ‘ALIEN’ Franchise

A couple of years ago ALIEN: Covenant entered theaters and because of this I became very curious about the movie that started this frightening franchise. Now my first encounter with the horrific specimen wasn’t in the form of the movie. It instead was because of a game.

Several years ago I got Mortal Combat X for my wonderful XBOX One. Through the months the game introduced new characters and one of them happened to be Alien. When I saw this terrifying creature I was excited. It was a new character to play on the fighting game and I am proud to say I am very good at him. I had no idea I was playing a character that inspired a generation of filmmakers to try and recreate the same sense of horror in science fiction, whether that be in a movie or a video game. When I found out Alien was a movie character I was definitely intrigued but I wasn’t completely interested in watching the film. Then I saw this new ALIEN flick coming out that May and my curiosity began to boil. Continue reading My Introduction to the ‘ALIEN’ Franchise
