I’m Sorry To Say It But I’m Not Excited for ‘Wonder Woman 1984’

Two years ago I couldn’t wait to see Wonder Woman. It was the first time a female superhero from DC Comics was being featured in a standalone film and after Gal Gadot stole the show in Batman vs. Superman I just knew it was going to be awesome. Wonder Woman was disappointing, to say the least, and its sequel doesn’t seem to be doing too well either. It was supposed to come out in June but was pushed until next June, which was a bit of a bummer.

Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor is coming back, which doesn’t make sense considering that he died.

And the movie is set in the 80s’ which means we’ll get cheesy 80s’ references, famous 80s’ songs, and who knows what other 80s’ nonsense that’ll distract from the movie just being a good Wonder Woman movie.

Honestly, I wish I could say I’m buzzing with excitement to see this film but honestly, I’m not. Yeah, I’m eager to see the teaser, whenever that’ll be. (Rumors are saying it’ll arrive in December alongside The Rise of Skywalker.) Yeah, I’m definitely going to go see it next year because why not? But I’m nowhere near as interested in the film as Black Widow, unfortunately.

Missed seeing the first official poster? Here it is. Continue reading I’m Sorry To Say It But I’m Not Excited for ‘Wonder Woman 1984’

A While Later

An ancient Naboo Royal Cruiser equipped with coveted artillery and a painted surface so black it looked invisible against the blackness of space sat a good distance away from a planet whose surface was an almost sickening grey color. Continue reading QI’RA: Chapter Four

‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Biggest Flaw is Its Overbearing Goal to Be Complex/Dark

I’ve just participated in a marathon of The Dark Knight Trilogy spanning a week long and today I finally finished The Dark Knight Rises. It was fun but it was nowhere near as entertaining as either The Dark Knight (which is one of my favorite movies of all time) or even Batman Begins. Why? How could the finale of an incredible superhero trilogy fall just a little flat compared to its predecessors? Today, after watching this film for the fourth time in my life, I think I finally have a definitive answer.

The Dark Knight Rises is a great superhero movie which is apparent with its 8.4 out of 10 star rating on IMDb but what it lacks that The Dark Knight has in such abundance is an easy-to-follow, simplistic storyline.

The Dark Knight follows the growing madness of The Joker and his schemes which takes Batman on quite an emotional journey. There are stunning plot twists and fantastic character developments that leave the viewer riveted.

The Dark Knight Rises tries to build on The Dark Knight’s perfect storyline with an equally complex one and ends up becoming a movie that’s too morbid for its britches. We get it. Christopher Nolan wanted to end the trilogy with a bang but it’s swallowed up in an overly long film that takes its complexity too seriously, leaving one bored and slightly disinterested.

Poe Dameron or Finn: Who’s Your Favorite?

When The Force Awakens arrived J.J Abrams had one thing in mind; make iconic characters as lovable as the Original Trilogy characters. Rey, Finn, and Commander Poe Dameron were born from this goal and we did fall in love with these heroes who were doing whatever they could to stop the forces of evil. Now, nearly four years later, the finale to their story is fast approaching and Finn and Poe are at the helm of this Skywalker saga finale.

They have become more than determined allies, they have become best friends and I can’t wait to see this friendship evolve throughout The Rise of Skywalker. So, I thought it would be great to have them be the topic of this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? On that note, let’s take a closer look at their journeys so far.
