What’s Your Favorite Leia Moment?

It’s another Sunday and that means it’s time to visit another segment of Who’s Your Favorite? Today, however, is rather special for Star Wars fans around the world because it is the late-great Carrie Fisher’s birthday (she would’ve been 62.) So, to honor the woman who has brought so many smiles to people across the globe, she is the subject of today’s Who’s Your Favorite?

Now, Leia has countless memorable moments during her time in this franchise but I’m going to take at least one exciting moment from each film that she’s graced for this list. Enjoy!

1. A Rogue One Surprise

Rogue One brought some fantastic surprises near the end of the film as it swiftly led into A New Hope‘s story and one of those shocking reveals was CGI Leia. Not only was it brilliant but it proved that technology could be used in truly exciting ways for future Star Wars films.

The ‘Eastrail 177’ Trilogy Is One of the Underrated Best Comic Book Trilogies of All Time

It wasn’t until about a couple of weeks ago that I watched Split for the first time. I had seen the commercials, my mother watched it and said that it was surprisingly good, and when my sister and I finally saw it to say we were horrified is an understatement.

Split, which follows the story of three teenage girls abducted by a man who has twenty-three personalities, is one of the best thrillers I’ve ever seen. The film doesn’t mess around with boring details or a storyline that chooses to take its own time before getting to the nitty-gritty. No, this movie keeps you on your toes from the very beginning and doesn’t let up the gas until by the conclusion you are staring at the screen in sheer horror.

After Split, we had to see where the story was going to go in last year’s finale of the trilogy, Glass. Unsurprisingly, Glass was just as riveting, in an albeit quieter fashion. We get to see M. Night Shyamalan’s (the writer/director of the trilogy) main characters–David Dunn (Bruce Willis), Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson), and Kevin Crumb (James McAvoy)–come together in the trilogy finale in a story that leads to the very unexpected.

The ending is a bit controversial among fans of the trilogy who were expecting the norm but honestly, I think this trilogy created by M. Night Shyamalan is a work of art. Continue reading “The ‘Eastrail 177’ Trilogy Is One of the Underrated Best Comic Book Trilogies of All Time”

Ranking the Romantic Moments in ‘Star Wars’; from Worst to Best

I remembered this post I wrote last year and decided to revisit it with a much-needed update. Enjoy!

21. The Secret Wedding

While this is clearly a beautiful scene (I mean come on, Naboo’s gorgeous) I skip it every time. Padme is absolutely stunning in her wedding attire and it’s supposed to be a heartwarming scene but I’m just not a fan of Hayden Christensen and Natalie Portman’s smooching scenes. Ugh. Hence, my least favorite romantic moment. Continue reading “Ranking the Romantic Moments in ‘Star Wars’; from Worst to Best”

A Movie Ranking: Daniel Craig

Daniel Craig has become an actor whose films I’ve started to enjoy and I thought it would be fun to highlight him for this week’s A Movie Ranking. So, let’s start this ranking.

5. Lara Croft: Tomb Raider

I saw bits and pieces of this film over a month ago and I was like, “What’s this?” I love the recent Tomb Raider game and the newest Tomb Raider movie isn’t great but next to this it looks like The Avengers compared to Justice League. Continue reading “A Movie Ranking: Daniel Craig”

Updated: My Ranking of the ‘Star Wars’ Films

The Skywalker Saga has come to an end and who knows when we’ll be getting another Star Wars movie. So, this will be my final ranking for a while now that I have The Rise of Skywalker to add to the collection. So, with no further delay, here goes.

1. Rogue One

This still cannot be topped. Featuring a gritty story that didn’t play by the rules, Rogue One is practically a condensed Star Wars: Rebels spin-off in movie form. It even features Darth Vader in a really exciting way at certain points. Continue reading “Updated: My Ranking of the ‘Star Wars’ Films”

With every updated ranking post that I have ever written The Incredible Hulk will always be in the last place.

22. Thor: The Dark World

While Thor: The Dark World has become somewhat more interesting since its inclusion in Avengers: Endgame, this movie’s still pretty terrible.
