The Dark Knight Lives (TWELVE)

After the crime scene was swept for clues as to who had murdered the mayor and next to no evidence was discovered the police officers, reporters, and news channel vans began to dissipate, moving on to juicier events happening around Gotham.

Robin and Lynx, however, were some of the few people to still hover around the courthouse, looking for any sign of a clue as to the murderer’s identity. It took them until twelve in the afternoon, underneath a morbid grey sky, before they found a single clue. Continue reading The Dark Knight Lives (TWELVE)

The Dark Knight Lives (ELEVEN)

An elderly African-American man climbs the steps to the courthouse in the wee hours of the morning. The sky is just beginning to become a navy blue color, revealing the arrival of sunrise but the streets are still alight with the glow of the lampposts. The man is a judge and his name is Thomas Mayer.

He’s the most prominent judge in Gotham. In short, he was hated by most who lived in Gotham, for his strict ways kept crime low in the city, and with crime came loads of money. Even the wealthy businessmen and women in Gotham had shady dealings in the black market, making Judge Mayer someone they’d rather have eliminated. But Mayer didn’t care if he was hated. In fact, he loved it because it meant he was doing his job properly. Continue reading The Dark Knight Lives (ELEVEN)

‘Star Wars’ Heroes vs. Villains: Who’s Cooler?

Star Wars has been a classic tale of good versus evil since it arrived over four decades ago in the form of A New Hope. You had the lovable heroes; Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Ben Kenobi, and the droids, C-3PO and R2-D2. And then there was the ultimate villain, Darth Vader, who emitted menace as soon as he walked in a room.

Over the years the Star Wars franchise has kept up that narrative of the heroes versus the villains in new, exciting ways. Lately, the movies have tried to blur the divisions between the protagonists and antagonists to keep viewers guessing but at the end of the day, there is still the dark side and the light. It’s fascinating stuff.

But then there’s that constant question: who’s cooler? Well, that’s what I’m here to find out. Enjoy!

Finn’s Greatest Moments

The Force Awakens is one of my favorite Star Wars movies because it introduced some truly fantastic characters; Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren, Daisy Ridley’s Rey, Oscar Isaac’s Poe Dameron, and John Boyega’s Finn. Finn was such a lovable character. He was adorable, sweet, kind, heroic, and he was different than other major Star Wars characters that came before him considering that he was the first stormtrooper who went good. In The Last Jedi he was even more heroic and that makes me even more excited for his involvement in Episode IX. So today on this segment of Greatest Moments I’m sharing with you all of my favorite moments from Finn. Enjoy!

1. Defecting

FN-2187 could’ve easily been like every other First Order stormtrooper, a mindless human robot who follows any order, atrocious or not, but he decided to be different, he decided to do what is right, and as he was given the order to slaughter all of those helpless Jakku civilains he didn’t. He lowered his gun despite knowing that he could’ve easily gotten shot right there on the spot and that takes a lot of bravery.

2. Saving Poe

This was another incredibly brave plan off of Finn’s behalf. He was within hours, maybe minutes, of getting his mind wiped and transformed back into the mindless murderer that the constant story of the stormtrooper is but he came up with the brilliant escape plan to save the Resistance pilot, Poe, hijack a TIE fighter, and get away from the evil First Order as quickly as possibly. Of course, the plan didn’t exactly transpire as he would’ve liked but it was still an impressive attempt at desertion.
