My Favorite Disney Songs

One of the reasons why I love animated Disney movies so much are the classic songs that fill you with happiness and cover your arms in goosebumps. Those songs are what make movies like The Little Mermaid and Aladdin so incredibly memorable and enjoyable. Without these glorious songs I don’t think those movies would be quite as magical as they are still to this day. So, since I was thinking about Disney songs today, I’m going to share with you the ballads that make me the happiest and urge me to sing along. Enjoy!

“Under the Sea”

Who doesn’t love “Under the Sea?” I have never seen The Little Mermaid and yet this song is so amazing and fun to sing that I know it almost entirely by heart. Especially the last section of the song. It’s absolutely brilliant and it reminds me every time I hear it why I love Disney so much.

“When You Wish Upon A Star”

This just might be one of the most beautiful Disney songs ever created, for its inspiring lyrics and melodic tone is legitimately lovely. This is definitely one of my favorite Disney songs.

Movie Trailer Flashback: ‘Black Panther’ Has A New Trailer!

February is not a month where movies are known to be to anticipated but this February is going to be an entirely different story with the arrival of Black Panther’s standalone film. I am beyond excited. Black Panther stole the show in Captain America: Civil War with his beautiful feline suit and his vibranium claws and now his movie looks so amazing. Check it out.

There are so many things that are right this trailer but I’m not going to talk about every single thing because then this post would be about three thousand words long, but I will elaborate a little on how awesome this trailer is. So, let me start elaborating.

1. The Visuals

This is definitely one of the more visually enticing films Marvel has made. There so many shots in this trailer that were absolutely incredible. From Black Panther’s ship passing through what looked like the barrier surrounding Wakanda to him walking through a gorgeous field in Africa with the sky a brilliant array of pinks and blues and purples. Watching this movie in IMAX is going to be a serious treat.

2. The Action

This movie is already proving to have some of the best action scenes out of any of the Marvel films. And the cool thing is Black Panther is not the only one to have some incredible fighting scenes in this movie. The Dora Milaje, King T’Challa’s female bodyguards, seem to have plenty of time in this movie to display their jaw-dropping skills. I’m so excited!

3. The Technology

Wakanda might’ve hidden from the world but it didn’t matter, for their scientists and engineers have created a place unlike any other. The technology in this movie is enough to rival Tony Stark. There are gadgets, beautiful ships that are piloted with only the use of the hands, suits that can materialize out of thin air, it’s going to be mind-boggling watching this film.

The Overall Trailer

I’m just simply ecstatic to see this film. I loved the fact that even though this trailer had so many awe-inspiring shots and moments I still have only a vague clue of what the movie is about. That is always exciting to see because that means there’s a reason why they’re not showing a lot.

I hope you enjoyed this trailer as much as I have and I can’t wait to see it in February. Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day.

‘The Last Jedi’ Is Really Kylo Ren’s Movie

The other day I watched The Last Jedi (mainly because I wanted to see the Praetorian Guard part again) and as I was watching the movie I realized that while the movie, of course, focused on every character the overall heart and soul of the film was provided by Kylo Ren. Rian Johnson has said many times that Kylo Ren was the character he was most excited to tackle and you can totally tell. He provided a compelling storyline to the Star Wars villain that helped incorporate him into the trilogy in a fascinating way while most of the other characters weren’t treated with as much care and attention. And I love that!

When J.J Abrams introduced this new villain in Kylo Ren I liked him but he ultimately felt too much like a ripoff of Darth Vader’s iconic character. He needed a little more substance and identity so that I could look at him and not immediately see this Darth Vader-wannabe. His best scenes in The Force Awakens were the scenes that involved him without his helmet because not only did we get to see him as his true self but Adam Driver is such a fantastic actor that you want to see his face and his emotions when he’s experiencing things. Rian Johnson knew this so he had Kylo Ren destroy his helmet within his first five minutes in The Last Jedi. Brilliant! That was the first step to his ultimate transformation and a sign that this movie was going to approach this character much differently. Continue reading “‘The Last Jedi’ Is Really Kylo Ren’s Movie”

The 14 Coolest Additions to ‘Star Wars’ in the Last Five Years

Star Wars is a wonderful franchise filled with fantastical things and the last three years of Star Wars movies underneath the Disney brand have presented some pretty cool creations. So, I’m going to share with you the fifteen coolest additions to Star Wars in the last five years (this is sticking only to the movies.) Enjoy!

1. Porgs

porg

I have to admit, I love porgs. When I first saw them I was seriously hoping that they wouldn’t be another version of Ewoks but, thankfully, they’re not. They’re actually really adorable. I immediately knew I was going to love these cute creatures when it showed them toying with Luke’s lightsaber after Luke chucked it. They were SOOO cute…and funny. I wasn’t sure if I was going to jump on the Porg bandwagon or not but yeah, I’m a Porg fan.

2. First Light

First Light

Have you ever wondered what a yacht in Star Wars would look like? Well, look no further than Solo. The second standalone Star Wars Story introduced the film’s major gangster antagonist in Paul Bettany’s Dryden Vos aboard his ultra-fancy yacht, First Light and I can positively say it is mind-blowing. I’ve seen a lot of cool vehicles in Star Wars but this is easily one of the most awesome vessels in the franchise.

Marvel vs. DC: Whose Outfits Are Better?

Marvel Studios and the DC Extended Universe have taken the superhero world by storm with their incredible films that have generated billions upon billions of dollars and while the superheroes that have helmed these films are usually really enjoyable and easy to get behind sometimes their incredible outfits help make them that much cooler. And so, because the DC Universe has only six major superheroes in their roster so far I’m going to compare their suits with six of Marvel’s best-outfitted heroes. Enjoy!

Superman vs. Doctor Strange

Superman’s outfit is basically the classic design but what makes this suit stand out are the metallic accents to the waist area. It makes the suit look alien and it provides a slightly epic feel to the overall outfit. Now I’ve never been a huge fan of Superman because of his suit; the red cape just never appealed to me, but I will admit that Henry Cavill wears it well and makes it not look as corny as it used to.

MV5BMjE5NDc5NzUwNV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMDM3MDM2NzE@._V1_

Doctor Strange’s outfit is also highly inspired by the original design from the comics and that’s why it’s perfect. The high collared red cloak provides an impeccable sorcerer sort of look and the dark blue robes and several belts also make him look different in a very good way. There is no doubt who I think wins this round.

Marvel: 1 point

All the Ways ‘Solo’ Has Impacted the Way I See ‘Star Wars’

After watching Solo: A Star Wars Story nearly my entire view surrounding Han Solo and Chewbacca’s stories has changed, as this standalone film has filled in gaps I didn’t even know I wanted to be answered and provided me tantalizing ideas for the future of Star Wars as well. So, with no further delay, let me relay to you all of the ways Solo has changed the way I look at these movies. Enjoy!

How Han Got His Name

hanandqiraride

Oh my goodness, undoubtedly one of the coolest moments in Solo for me was learning how Han got his iconic name, Han Solo. I always figured that the name was probably made up because the idea of someone having the name Solo didn’t exactly quantify as a legitimate last name to me. I thought that maybe Han called himself that after realizing that he didn’t have any friends, except for Chewbacca, but to learn that an Imperial recruiter provided him the title, Han Solo, is simply one of the coolest things that have ever happened in Star Wars. It was definitely much cooler than when Emperor Palpatine named Anakin “Darth Vader”. Continue reading “All the Ways ‘Solo’ Has Impacted the Way I See ‘Star Wars’”

The Proof That Poe Was Regarded As a Villain in ‘The Last Jedi’

Over three weeks ago I wrote a post about who I felt was the true villain in The Last Jedi and at the end of the article I felt that, due to the movie’s events, Poe Dameron was the true antagonist of the movie and for several reasons. One of the biggest reasons why however is that Poe got hundreds of Resistance fighters killed due to his reckless actions. He wanted to be a hero several times and every time he thought he was doing something great he only made things much, much worse. Of course Kylo Ren is the main villain of the trilogy but for the majority of The Last Jedi he was treated as a partial-protagonist rather than the villain that he was in The Force Awakens. And now I have legitimate proof that Poe was regarded as one of the antagonists of the film. Look at this poster. Continue reading “The Proof That Poe Was Regarded As a Villain in ‘The Last Jedi’”
