Three Marvel Movies on a Saturday Night

Last night I kind of went on a Marvel binge. It was totally random, I wasn’t expecting it, but it was so much fun.

I began the evening (after watching Tarzan for basically only the third time in my life and crying my eyes out) by watching Doctor Strange, a film that has become my go-to Marvel flick. Watching it was fun, especially knowing that we’re finally getting the sequel next year and that the said sequel will include Wanda Maximoff. What a fascinating thought.

It’s also very exciting knowing that we will see Mordo again but this time around he will be a villain. I really feel a bit of a Steve/Bucky vibe between Strange and Mordo. They started as friends, will become enemies, but I can see them becoming allies again in the future against a greater evil.

And don’t forget, we’re getting America Chavez’s MCU debut in that movie too.

My Top Ten Favorite Marvel Female Characters: Updated

Marvel has a lot of characters and all of them have their own charm. To write these sort of ranking lists pertaining to the MCU is so much harder for me than something like Star Wars because I love so many of the characters but for now, I’ll give it a go. Enjoy!

WandaVision' Broke the MCU's Reality and It Was Very On-Brand

Agnes a.k.a Agatha Harkness was an instant favorite of mine when she waltzed into Wanda’s life in the first episode of WandaVision and as the series continued and the mystery only deepened she only became more and more fascinating.

By the end, when she revealed herself to be a witch by the name of Agatha Harkness I just really, really enjoyed the character. I’m so relieved that they decided not to kill her off because I want to see her again in the future.

‘WandaVision’: An Analysis of ‘Breaking the Fourth Wall’

I was honestly worried that the seventh episode of the series was going to leave me underwhelmed and wishing for more but honestly, it was perfect. It offered just enough tantalizing tidbits to leave me satisfied and it left us with a cliffhanger that’s going to be a gas!

(You see what I did there?)

But anyway, I’m here to talk about the episode, its most fascinating moment, and what we could expect with these last two episodes. Enjoy!

SPOILERS AHEAD!

A Sunday Movie Extravaganza!

Okay, yesterday was eventful because I watched SO many movies yesterday. I’m talking watching movies from 6am to 9pm before finally passing out into la la land (I’m meaning sleep, not the movie, lol.) It was such a random movie day that I wanted to share miniature versions of my experience with each film that I watched yesterday. Enjoy!

The First Movie: The Last Samurai

If you’re new to my blog you may not know this but The Last Samurai is one of my favorite movies of all time and it’s my personal favorite Tom Cruise film.

This movie, set in the 1800s’ and documenting the last days of the awe-inducing Samurai through the eyes of American Captain Algren (Tom Cruise), is an absolutely beautiful movie. Its sweeping score, composed by Hans Zimmer, carries the emotion of the film incredibly, leaving me in sheer awe (and goosebumps) every time I’ve ever watched this film. Ken Watanabe would get his only Oscar nomination for this movie as he portrays the leader of the last Samurai, Katsumoto.

Honestly, this movie needed more accolades, including a Best Picture nomination because it is utter perfection. Unlike The Great Wall which clearly follows the narrative of the superhero white guy (Matt Damon, in this case) who seems to know more and be more skilled at everything than the actual Chinese, The Last Samurai never tries to act like Tom Cruise’s Captain Algren is the savior of the samurai and I appreciate that.

He is merely a spectator and a friend who happens to share in this historic event alongside Katsumoto.

And yeah, every time I have ever watched this movie it has made me cry buckets. But unlike most movies which have super emotional scenes at the end of the film, The Last Samurai‘s emotional moments start with roughly forty minutes left in the film, hence leaving me sporadically crying my eyes out for forty minutes straight. So, as can be expected, when the movie ended and I was left wiping the waterfalls protruding from my eyes, my head was throbbing. What a way to start the morning right?

10/10 stars
