Who’s Your Favorite Chris?

As you may know, there are four prominent Chris’s in Hollywood, all of which have starred in superhero movies; Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pratt, and Chris Pine. These four Chris’s have been in our eyeballs in some of the biggest blockbusters of all time for years and yet everyone has their favorite Chris. That’s why I thought it would be the perfect topic for this week’s Who’s Your Favorite?

Chris Hemsworth

Before Thor in 2011 Chris Hemsworth wasn’t a household name. The Australian actor, however, would immediately rise to Hollywood fame as he took a superhero popular among Marvel fans and brought him to the big screen in a faithful adaptation of the character. Plus, plenty of people were captivated by the actor’s impressive physique, which has been on full display in his various shirt off scenes throughout nearly every movie that he has ever been in.

Now, eight years later, he’s still providing people plenty of joy with his role as Thor in the Marvel movies and his recent role in Men in Black: International.

Chris Pine

There’s a lot of entertainment to know Chris Pine by. Whether you’re familiar with him as Captain Kirk in the Star Trek films or Steve Trevor in Wonder Woman, his role in the destined-to-be-nominated-for-an-Emmy series on TNT, I Am the Night, his impressive musical abilities in Disney’s Into the Woods, his role in the Oscar-nominated film, Hell or High Water, and his small but totally awesome role as Peter Parker in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

Yeah, Chris Pine has done a lot.

Chris Pratt

You may not know this but there was a time when Chris Pratt wasn’t considered a Hollywood hunk. Far from it, in fact, for he was a rather big fellow. Big, horizontally. But, after losing some weight and getting into top superhero shape a new man emerged, causing plenty of surprise for moviegoers around the world as he strolled into our hearts as the lovable yet obnoxious Peter Quill/Star-Lord.

And it didn’t stop there.

The very next year he starred in the Jurassic Park reboot, Jurassic World, as Owen Grady, a keeper of dinosaurs and ultimate motorcycle-riding bad mamma-jamma. Starring in other films such as the beloved The Lego Movie, the steamy sci-fi thriller, Passengers, and the classic cowboy action film, The Magnificent Seven, Chris Pratt has made his mark on Hollywood.

And with his role as Star-Lord continuing on and his upcoming role in the cute new Disney movie, Onward, we’ll have Chris Pratt to enjoy for many more years to come.

Chris Evans

If you’re not aware, Chris Evans was a superhero long before he became Captain America. He starred as the fiery superhero, Johnny Storm, in 2005’s Fantastic Four and 2007’s Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Four years later he would take his superhero resumé to the next level as he starred in the movie that would change his life forever; Captain America: The First Avenger.

For eight years Chris Evans has inspired us and brought millions of fans so much joy as the patriotic superhero, Captain America. But he’s also managed to impress as a doting uncle in the critically-acclaimed film, Gifted. While his role as Captain America has unfortunately come to an end there’s no doubt that he will always be in our hearts.

So, of these four Chris’s, who’s your favorite? For me, my favorite is definitely Chris Evans. Not only is he a hero onscreen but he’s just as much a hero offscreen as he constantly stands up for what’s right. I love that. 😊

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

‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ vs. ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’

Two years in a row I have gone to see a summer blockbuster focusing on a popular franchise focusing on monsters and both times I came away from those movies extremely disappointed. Jurassic World was an enjoyable film and I figured its sequel would be better. It wasn’t. Godzilla was horrendous while Godzilla: King of the Monsters was actually better than its predecessor. But, at the end of the day, both of these sequels have been pretty awful and I watched them. Ha, hilarious.

But, which monster movie is better? Well, I’m going to base it off of three criteria; storyline, characters, and action. In the end, we will see which movie reigns supreme. Enjoy! Continue reading ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ vs. ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’

Here’s the First Look at Disney’s ‘Onward’

I love Disney movies. From the classics like The Lion King to the newer Disney/Pixar films like Frozen and Coco Disney makes me happy on so many levels. And now Disney is bringing out a new film to obsess over; Onward. It stars Marvel alumni, Chris Pratt, and Tom Holland, in a fun new adventure that I can’t wait to see. The first teaser appeared last night during the first game of the NBA Finals and I couldn’t wait to share it with you all. Here it is.

Oh, this is going to be fun. I can already tell. It’s set to come out next March and I have a feeling it just may be the next Frozen. We’ll see.

Oh, it’s so cute. I love it already. 🙂

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

A Six-Year Poster Evolution: Star-Lord

Star-Lord, the leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy seems like a rascally scoundrel with a bombastic attitude at first meeting but there’s a lot more emotional depth to him than meets the eye. Having only one parent to provide for him as a child made losing his beloved mother as a child all the more heartbreaking. He never wanted to show weakness or emotion due to Yondu’s reckless upbringing so he hid all of his sadder emotions behind a careless facade whose main goal was getting rich and finding chicks.

Star-Lord’s kinder side, however, would lead him to becoming a galactic hero and definitely one of my favorite characters in the MCU. Here are his character posters. Enjoy!

Guardians of the Galaxy

With Guardians of the Galaxy being Star-Lord’s debut this poster had to show him in a very heroic light and as the clear leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy so it’s no surprise that this poster looks so awesome. With his blasters in hand and the serious expression on his face Star-Lord looks like a hero fighting alongside to save the galaxy.

Throwback Friday: The ‘Jurassic’ Franchise Has Become A Fallen Kingdom

My introduction to Jurassic Park for the first time ever was in IMAX during the film’s anniversary. Since then I have grown to love the Jurassic Park movies. The Jurassic World movies, however, have begun to turn the franchise into an empty husk of what it once was and so today, in this week’s segment of Throwback Friday, I’m taking a look back at my review of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. I hope you enjoy.

I went to watch Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, hoping that the alarming Rotten Tomatoes score (a rotten 51%) wasn’t completely accurate and that I would end up actually liking the film. Wrong! This movie is clearly the worst film of the year I’ve seen so far and for so many reasons.

MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD! I’m about to relay to you every reason why this movie was so lackluster in quality in detail so I advise you to discontinue reading this now if you don’t want to know any of the details of this film. Thank you for heeding this warning.
