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

My Ten Favorite Female Villains

There have been many women in films but rarely do you see a compelling female villain. I have seen countless male antagonists who have stolen the show with their creepiness or their sheer awesomeness but being able to enjoy a female villain in a movie is so very hard to find. But today I’m going to list the female baddies whose wicked ways are shone in the most delightful (or horrifying) fashion and have grown to be some of my favorite characters. Enjoy!

10. Red Queen

Alice in Wonderland wasn’t the best Disney movie ever made but one thing I distinctly remembered about the film for years after seeing it in the movie theater nine years ago was the Red Queen. Her putrid behavior and her striking look were unforgettable, standing out amidst a mostly lackluster film that I pretty much erased from memory until I saw it for the second time a few months ago.

Helena Bonham Carter’s performance as the Red Queen wasn’t Oscar worthy but I’ll never forget her incessant screaming for her beloved Jabberwocky anytime soon. Continue reading My Ten Favorite Female Villains

This Segment of ‘The Last Jedi’ Perfectly Sums Up Leia’s Entire Journey and Her Constant Triumphs

I’ve watched The Last Jedi over twenty times and one of the most important scenes in the film is actually one of the quietest moments in the movie. And that scene which I am referring to is when Leia is shown sitting by herself in the cruiser, Ninka.

Throughout Leia’s involvement in Star Wars, we haven’t often seen her grieve even though she has obviously experienced so much loss.

She lost nearly her entire crew aboard the ship, Tantative IV, to Darth Vader and his stormtroopers. Then she had to watch her home planet of Alderaan get obliterated before her very eyes (and her mother and father along with it.) Who knows what tragedies she saw in the battle against the Empire during those unknown years between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. She had to endure seeing Han Solo getting frozen in carbonite, nearly dying in the process. And then, even after the Rebellion defeated the Empire, the hardships she would face were far from over.
