Throwback Friday: Heimdall Is The Unsung Hero of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

I still haven’t gotten over the fact that Avengers: Infinity War was such an amazing movie. After my most recent viewing, I realized something that was rather obvious but I didn’t think of until now. If it weren’t for Heimdall sending Hulk to Doctor Strange things would’ve been a LOT worse.

Tony Stark would’ve been hanging out with Pepper completely oblivious to the fact that Thanos would be arriving to end life as he knew it.

Bruce Banner wouldn’t have called Captain America which means Cap, Black Widow, and Falcon wouldn’t have saved Vision and Wanda from Thanos’s minions. Wanda Maximoff would’ve probably been killed and Vision’s stone would’ve been taken then.

And Doctor Strange would’ve still been captured by The Maw but he wouldn’t have had Iron Man and Spider-Man to rescue him which means…well, it wouldn’t have been pretty.

All in all, if you think Avengers: Infinity War is depressing without Heimdall’s aid at the beginning of the movie things could’ve been a LOT worse.

I thank you for reading my simple observation and I hope you have a great day.

I Miss Marvel

When Avengers: Endgame concluded I knew I had seen the end of an era. An etch in a stone that had been such a part of my life for so many years. And even though Spider-Man: Far from Home was the MCU film to officially bring Phase 3 to an end it still feels as if Endgame was the last true Marvel Studios movie.

Now, everything is a blank. The story has to start over. Black Widow isn’t a sequel to a previous film. It is a prequel that is taking us back to shortly after Captain America: Civil War, leaving me still feeling a bit abandoned considering that I don’t know what the heck is going on moving forward!

After watching several Marvel movies over the weekend and concluding my partial marathon with an emotional viewing of Captain America: The First Avenger last night, I truly feel the ache of the loss of these Marvel films.

For so many years, we’ve gotten MCU movies at a steadily increasing pace. Of course, by now we would have gotten another film in Black Widow if not for the deadly virus COVID-19 and that only makes waiting for another Marvel movie even more agonizing.

Gosh, I can’t wait until The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and WandaVision later this year. I need to see my superhero peeps because honestly…I miss them.

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

You Won’t Believe How Many Disney Movies are in The Billion-Dollar Film Club

Disney has solidified itself as one of the most beloved companies in the world, delivering powerful films that continue to wow and inspire people of all races across the globe. And these movies happen to make a lot of money!

While reading the list of billion-dollar movies on IMDb I couldn’t help noticing that Disney movies take up 23 of the 42 films on this list and so, I had to share it with you. Enjoy!

42. Aladdin

Aladdin would become Will Smith’s highest-grossing film at a whopping $1,012,437,181.

40. Zootopia

I would never have known that Zootopia is part of the billion-dollar club, which is very interesting. But I’m not surprised. It was a good movie.

My Top 20 Favorite Scenes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Part 4

Okay, the moment has arrived for me to share my top 5 favorite scenes in the MCU. So, with no further delay, here they are.

5. The Peter Tingle

Every superhero has their moment. You know. That moment when they realize their full potential as a hero and become greater than they already were. In the last bout against Mysterio and his killer drones Spider-Man finally fits the missing link to his abilities; his Spidey-sense or as they call it in these films, the Peter Tingle.

It’s a scene crafted from epic proportions as Spider-Man, with his eyes closed, takes down Mysterio’s drones in a musicless rampage of awesomeness that puts goosebumps on my goosebumps every time. I love this scene! Continue reading “My Top 20 Favorite Scenes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Part 4”

My Top 20 Scenes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Part 2

Yesterday I shared the first five scenes in my top 20 favorite-scenes-in-the-MCU countdown. Now, it’s time for the next five. Let the countdown commence.

15. Captain America’s Startling Reawakening

capthefirstavengerending

Steve Rogers a.k.a Captain America was thought to be dead but instead, he was frozen in time and thawed out in the 21st century. Say what you will about Captain America: The First Avenger. This is one of my favorite movie endings for a superhero movie ever. It’s such a fun way to introduce Captain America to our futuristic world and, for a bonus, it features Nick Fury too. Love it!

14. “What the f–?!”

Speaking about superhero movie endings, this is also one of my favorite. Part of Spider-Man’s story and the daily challenge is to keep his aunt, friends, and the world from knowing who he, Peter Parker, really is. Marvel Studios has thrown that scenario out of the window and it’s fitting, considering that Tony Stark broke that secret-hero narrative in Iron Man. This is a world where the heroes are known and that makes Spider-Man’s story a little more complex than before.

13. Who Can Lift Mjolnir?

From the first time I watched this scene to the last time I watched this scene, it has always managed to make me laugh.

12. Gamora’s Death

There isn’t much tragedy in the MCU. Avengers: Infinity War is full of it. This scene has always been haunting and even though Gamora was essentially revived in Endgame, it still hurts.

11. “And I am Iron Man.”

Avengers: Endgame isn’t the best superhero movie that I’ve ever seen but it has moments that are downright unforgettable, this being one of them. I knew Iron Man was going to die but at least his death arrived via the most epic sacrifice ever conceived in a superhero film. I love this scene and yeah, I cry like a baby every time too.

Oh, snap, tomorrow arrives the next five scenes for this countdown.

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

My Top 20 Scenes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Part 1

 The Marvel Cinematic Universe is packed to the brim with lovable moments but I have tasked myself with the difficult assignment of trying to pick my top 20 favorite scenes in the MCU. However, I’m breaking it into a four-day countdown dismantling all twenty scenes into four posts leading to my eventual final 5 favorite scenes. So, with no further delay, here we go!

20. Ronin’s Reveal

Endgame had a lot of surprises, namely one of them being Hawkeye’s updated and much cooler alias, Ronin, which he adopted after he lost all morality and turned into a crime-fighting killing machine following the loss of the family he loved. Even though this is the only scene when we get to see Clint Barton as Ronin in action I positively LOVE IT! Continue reading “My Top 20 Scenes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Part 1”

Movie Review Flashback: My Favorite Portion of the ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Teaser Trailer

Three days ago Marvel Studios surprised everyone with a sudden debut of the Avengers: Infinity War teaser trailer. It was absolutely incredible and still makes me happy every time I see it. I’ve seen a lot of trailers in my time but this one was really epic. Here’s another look at it.

Anyway, the teaser was Marvel-ous and I’m here to talk about my favorite portion of the trailer because this teaser was so good I couldn’t just pick one clip. So, I’m going to talk about the clips that really stood out in the last half of this trailer. Enjoy!

The Hulk-Buster Returns!

First, I loved this Iron Man suit in Avengers: Age of Ultron. It’s really one of the only things that can actually defeat The Hulk in a one on one fight. Two, it’s the beginning of the phase of the trailer that’s just beyond epic. The music, when the Hulk-Buster appears, sounds so amazing it gives me chills every time.
