What I Hope To See in a ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Trailer

Since the trailer for Eternals has come out fans have been clamoring for the first official teaser of Spider-Man: No Way Home and while I’m pretty sure we won’t be getting the teaser (then again, maybe we will) there is a chance we’ll see it sometime this month ahead of the premiere of Black Widow. So, until then, here are some things I really want to see in the teaser.

My Favorite Marvel Superhero, Doctor Strange!

There were rumors that we’d be getting Doctor Strange as the new mentor-type character in this third Spider-Man installment and I want to know if that’s true or not. Of course, he may simply be in a post-credits scene but I would love it if he does play a sizable role in the actual film. Especially considering how much fun it was to see them interact in Infinity War.

Jamie Foxx is a great actor and yet he was turned into what I feel is the worst adaptation of a comic book villain ever in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. His design was atrocious and it distracted from his part in the story. I hope to see his return in the teaser with an updated design that isn’t so aesthestically displeasing.

Considering that this will be nothing more than a teaser I don’t know what else to expect. Apparently Alfred Molina is returning to reprise his role as Doctor Octopus so we should see what happens with that but besides that tidbit of information I am very much in the dark about this movie and I can’t wait to see what it’s going to be about.

Watching ‘Soul’ a Second Time

Last year on Christmas Day families with a Disney+ subscription were invited to watch what I feel was one of the best pictures of the year, Soul. When I saw it the first time I was positively blown away by its wit, it’s charm, and most importantly, it’s brilliance. Ever since I watched it roughly two months ago I have been planning to rewatch it and that’s what I did this morning. Wow, wow, wow.

I’ve seen a lot of great Disney movies but Soul is honestly one of the most thought-provoking and imaginative films the studio has ever produced. Unlike most Disney movies, Soul honestly doesn’t feel as catered to children as other movies. The jokes are targeted towards adults who have experienced things and the subject material of the movie will go over a child’s head. And yet, it can bring an entire family together for its simply magnificent animation that tells such a beautiful story and its lovable characters.

I honestly cannot express enough how much I love this movie! It’s beautiful in every sense of the word and is one of Disney’s crowning achievements.

If you haven’t watched it yet I highly recommend it. It’s, in my opinion, the best picture of 2020,

My Review of ‘Soul’

Disney/Pixar did it again! They made another great movie. Soul just may be the smartest Pixar movie since Inside Out as it deals with the afterlife, our personal journeys, and just what makes life worth living.

Jamie Foxx and Tina Fey lead viewers on a spectacular adventure with some of the best and most creative animated moments I’ve seen from a Pixar movie. The characters were hilarious, there were some legitimate laugh-out-loud moments, but as is always important with Pixar’s movies, it hits the heart as well.

My Review of ‘Project Power’

Sometimes I just don’t get it. Project Power, a Netflix original film starring Jamie Foxx and Joseph-Gordon Levitt, is actually a really good streaming service movie but it’s barely gotten any shoutouts or praise.

Imagine Taken meets Beats meets a rated-R DC Comics level superhero story. That’s Project Power. It could’ve been corny but it wasn’t. Everything made sense, the characters were likable, and even though the movie ended predictably it was pretty darn enjoyable. I found myself laughing quite a few times but most of the time I was stunned into silence by the film’s rapid-pacing and dire circumstances.

No, Project Power is not the best movie I’ve ever seen but it’s a pretty great Netflix movie. I’ll give it 95 out of 100 and 4.5 out of 5 stars. If you’re bored and at home with a Netflix subscription check this one out. I have a feeling you might like it.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.

Jamie Foxx Will Be Playing Electro In the Next ‘Spider-Man’ Movie!

Yes, you are hearing correctly. Jamie Foxx will be reportedly be reprising his role as Electro in the upcoming Spider-Man movie and I am ecstatic! Don’t get me wrong, I thought that he had the worst portrayal of a comic book villain in a comic book movie ever! but I trust the MCU and I know this is going to be awesome!

This is also making me very excited because this practically confirms that the Sinister Six will be in this next movie and the thought is exhilarating!! Oh my goodness, I’m getting so excited!

‘Just Mercy’: How Could This Movie Not be Nominated for Best Picture?!

I watched Just Mercy for the first time on Juneteenth on TBS. I’m going to be honest. I was bored at first but then…once the story got moving it didn’t let up. Just Mercy is a depressing yet empowering story depicting the struggles of the common black man and how we find ways to overcome the prejudice that tries to beat us down. It’s an even more poignant film when you look at the world around us at this very moment, at the people of all races who are finally standing up and saying enough is enough.

Just Mercy on several occasions had me crying as I stared at the screen, either horrified by what I was witnessing or inwardly cheering at the triumphs that so many of my people don’t get a chance to enjoy.

It was a beautiful story, led by two brilliant performances by Jamie Foxx and Michael B. Jordan, both of whom got snubbed at the Oscars and the Golden Globes despite giving some of the best performances of their lives.

Selma, a story told a million times through documentaries and personal accounts was nominated for Best Picture six years ago. So how could a movie that tells the story of a relatively unknown African-American whose deeds are just as impactful as Martin Luther King’s not be nominated for Best Picture also?
