‘Black Widow’ Is A Fitting Piece To Natasha’s Puzzle

Black Widow was a movie Marvel fans had been asking for for years but we ultimately thought we would never get it. We finally did get it…but it was after already knowing that Natasha Romanoff dies in Endgame, souring the prospect of her film because we knew the outcome wouldn’t lead to more movies featuring her. Her movie was only going to be a puzzle piece to her overall story.

So did I expect the movie to be good, yeah, but did I expect it to be great, not really. To my elation, it was great.

‘The Fountain’: I Couldn’t Stop Crying

After doing a recent post ranking all of the movies I’ve seen featuring Hugh Jackman one of my readers suggested I should watch The Fountain. Considering that I have begun to really enjoy watching Hugh Jackman films, especially ones that involve him not playing the hero, Wolverine, I decided to give it a look. Oh my goodness, wow.

First off, The Fountain is definitely not for everybody. Its one hour and thirty-six minute storyline features Jackman and his co-star Rachel Weisz over three different timelines in a strange plot that tackles the idea of death and the afterlife.

The movie was a bit odd at first, well honestly, it was odd all the way through but its story was solid enough to process and boy I just couldn’t stop crying after a while.

Maybe it was Clint Mansell’s hypnotically solemn score that had me bursting into tears as he imbued each scene with such emotional impact. Or maybe it was simply the powerful performances by its star actors, Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz, who managed to imbue so much feeling into their scenes together. Or maybe, simply, it was the film’s emotional storyline that continued to gnaw at me.

Gosh, I’m still wiping tears while I write this.

Thank you Eric Foley for recommending this movie to me. It was exceptionally weird and so perfectly written that I have to applaud its brilliance. It’s a movie I will never forget.

I’ll give this movie 95 out of 100 and 4.5 out of 5 stars. It wasn’t perfect but heck, it was GOOD.

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

An Exclusive Look at ‘Black Widow’ Highlights More Taskmaster and More Widows

Black Widow is coming out in a few months and while our minds have been preoccupied with Star Wars for the last few months, Marvel is trying to remind us that, yoo-hoo, they have a new movie coming out soon.

Last night we got an exclusive minute-and-a-half long look at Black Widow and I have to admit, I was very impressed. Here it is.

This movie is going to feature so much Widow action! Black Widow, Yelena Belova, Melina Vostakoff, the Widows that are hunting them down. It’s going to be AWESOME! And beyond all of that, there’s Taskmaster, a villain who looks like they’re going to be quite the formidable antagonist.

If the teaser trailer didn’t get you excited I’m sure this exclusive look may have done the trick. I’m so ready!

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