Before a movie comes out I always like to predict what’s going to happen in a film and I’m so GLAD I ran across this post I wrote back in May of last year. It’s kind of fascinating and that’s why I wanted to share it with you for this week’s Throwback Friday. Enjoy!
As I’m sure you all know by now-
(If you don’t know then discontinue reading this NOW because there are MAJOR spoilers ahead.)
-a lot of people died in Avengers: Infinity War. I mean, a LOT! So many in fact that it’s kind of obvious that they’ll be brought back in the next Avengers film but here’s the question: How can they be brought back from the dead to return to fight Thanos in a last battle worthy of this Avengers finale? Well, that’s what I’m here to theorize and I hope you enjoy. 🙂 Continue reading Throwback Friday: Here Are the Ways the Dead Heroes in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Can Return in ‘Avengers 4’
The new trailer for The Rise of Skywalker is almost upon us. Like with all new movies, there’s a time when we don’t know what’s going to happen in the film or what to expect. And then, months after seeing the movie for the first time, we get the chance to watch it over and over again and the memories of mystery surrounding the film are gone.
Here’s a look back at a post I wrote after just buying The Last Jedi on Blu-Ray early last year. Enjoy!
Okay, so I’ve just recently owned The Last Jedi and after seeing the movie eight times now I am more blown away by the film than I was after I went to see it in the movie theaters all those months ago. The story is impeccably designed, the character development is riveting, the cinematography is beautiful, the action is phenomenal, and overall it’s undoubtedly, to me, the best Star Wars movie ever made. It even surpasses the genius of The Empire Strikes Back which is now boring in comparison.
(Present day: Too bad this elation dissipated. Rogue One has returned to being my favorite Star Wars film and The Empire Strikes Back has reclaimed its title as my 2nd favorite film in the franchise. I now have The Last Jedi sitting in 4th place just behind The Force Awakens, which is still pretty good.)
The only setback of this movie’s entertaining quality is the difficulty I’m going to have a hard time discerning my five favorite scenes from the movie because there are so many fantastic scenes it feels unfair to leave some parts out but I’m going to try my best.

This is hilarious! Looking back at this post that I wrote last April about Captain Phasma playing a role in The Rise of Skywalker is actually really funny. At the time, I was so heartbroken that Captain Phasma, one of the coolest characters to appear in this franchise, was gone that I refused to believe the obvious fact. Now, seventeen months later, looking back at this post is actually quite the comic relief. So, for this week’s Throwback Friday, here’s a look back at why I was so certain that Captain Phasma would play a role in The Rise of Skywalker. Enjoy!
The Force Awakens introduced some exciting new characters to the Star Wars universe and one of those incredible new additions was Captain Phasma. I remember seeing some concept art for The Force Awakens in the early months of 2014 and one of the most interesting pieces of art was the one that highlighted Phasma in concept form. It was literally one of the coolest things I had ever seen. Then, when I found out that this incredible new stormtrooper was a woman I was like, “WHAAAT!” She was so awesome!!! And then I watched The Force Awakens and I was like, “Huh?” There was so much hype surrounding that character and she ended up playing a ridiculously minor role that quite possibly didn’t need to be in the movie. She was simply eye candy for the film and a chance for Disney to say they introduced the first female villain to a Star Wars movie. Continue reading Throwback Friday: I’m Convinced That Captain Phasma Isn’t Gone
2019 has been a fun year for movies but what’s been even greater have been all of the movie announcements for films coming in the next few years, mainly in the Disney department. Next year things are going to slightly slow down and give us a breather from the onslaught of blockbusters but 2021 is going to be absolutely incredible! Let me show you all of the outstanding things to look forward to in 2021.
Five Outstanding Disney+ Series
In Spring of 2021, we’ll get to see what happened to Loki after he used the Tesseract to escape capture when The Avengers went back in time. With this character finding redemption in Avengers: Infinity War the love for the God of Mischief has only grown and I can’t wait to see what mischief Loki can find himself in.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales was one of the movies I happened to miss this summer so when it was available to watch digitally I was so excited. This was a movie I actually wanted to see so imagine how disheartened I felt when it got subpar reviews. People didn’t say it was bad but they didn’t say it was great either. So I watched it apprehensively. I figured it would be enjoyable, to a certain extent, because Disney doesn’t make absolutely terrible movies, but would it be able to stack up to the success of some its predecessors? And I’m glad to say I came from the movie with a nod and a smile on my face. It was good, it wasn’t great, but I did like certain aspects of the film. So, with that, let me start this review.
This new Pirates of the Caribbean film had one of the more compelling stories of the series. The main gist of the film was that when a Spanish captain who despised pirates with every bit of his being was defeated by a teenage Jack Sparrow he, in the event of turning into a ghost of sorts, vowed to get revenge on the rascally pirate. And so when a British ship fell into his domain he killed everyone on board except for Henry Turner (Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann’s son) and told him to relay a message to Jack Sparrow that “Death” was going to find him.
Now, this was a great portion of the story that gave plenty of implications that this would be the best Pirates of the Caribbean movie yet. Here was the thing though. This storyline was slightly lost in the midst of a whole bunch of other plotlines for the movie.
