I Think I’ve Discovered An Infinity Stone Connection

Joe and Anthony Russo helped answer a lot of questions that people had about Avengers: Endgame but one thing they never cleared up was a particularly strange moment that happened toward the end of Infinity War. Let me explain.

After Thanos does the Infinity Snap, hence wiping out half of all life, he goes to this otherworldly realm where he sees his daughter Gamora at the same age she was when he first met her. Gamora asks him a simple question.

“Did you do it?”

He responds sadly, knowing that his mission was only successful because he killed her, “Yes.”

Gamora seems on the verge of tears, not upset because he killed her but instead it seems she’s disappointed. Disappointed in the idea that he would be willing to sacrifice something he loved so dearly to do so much harm.

This sequence has always intrigued me because it felt like there was a deeper meaning to that scene and yet Endgame didn’t help elaborate on that scene, nor did the Russo Brothers. And yet, I think I’ve found at least a piece of the answer to this strange scene. Continue reading I Think I’ve Discovered An Infinity Stone Connection

Captain America: Secret War (Post-Story Chapter)

Far away, in the night sky, past the planets of our known galaxy, a simple orange and blue ship are casually flying through space. Continue reading Captain America: Secret War (Post-Story Chapter)

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.

My Ranking of the Marvel Movies Two Years Ago

Two years ago I wrote my first post highlighting my ranking of the Marvel movies. At the time there were only fourteen films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. To think that a simple two years would add so many movies to the list is truly mind-boggling.

Here’s a look back at how I ranked the films at that time. Enjoy!

(I had a lot to say in 2017 so this will be a long read.)

14. The Incredible Hulk (2008)

I love the Hulk. He’s one of the strongest and most entertaining superheroes in Marvel. His standalone film, however, was not so great. There were a lot of corny moments and it wasn’t a well-written movie. On top of that, Edward Norton didn’t even look like he would turn into The Hulk. The villain was the best part of the movie because at least he was threatening. The fight between The Hulk and the villain at the end is, to a certain degree, entertaining but overall the movie is a C-. Continue reading My Ranking of the Marvel Movies Two Years Ago

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ or ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’: Which Movie Is Your Favorite?

Marvel has made plenty of entertaining films that have left fans of all ages clamoring for more but there are those rare gems in the franchise that are truly outstanding movies. Marvel is heralded for its incredible use of humor and Guardians of the Galaxy and Thor: Ragnarok is among the funniest installments in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But what makes them so great isn’t just the numerous amount of jokes but the truly enjoyable storyline and characters. Both of these films with its laugh-out-loud humor and vibrant colors brought a standard to the Marvel’s funnier installments and have become ultimate fan favorites.

That’s why, for this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? I decided to make this the topic. Here’s a closer look at each film’s similar aspects. Continue reading ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ or ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’: Which Movie Is Your Favorite?
