‘Teen Titans Go! to the Movies’ Expectedly Brings The Laughs

Even though I’m an adult there are still certain cartoons that I love to watch and one of those cartoons is Teen Titans Go! This cartoon focused on the DC Comic teen heroes consisting of Batman’s infamous sidekick, Robin, the boy with a beastly ability, Beast Boy, the half-robot, half-human hero with a favorite catchphrase (“Booyah!”) Cyborg, the alien princess with powers from another world, Starfire, and the half-demon girl who uses her dark powers for good, Raven. These five get into all sort of laughable mischief and aren’t afraid to make a song or two along the way.

They have become so popular on Cartoon Network in fact that this summer they received their own movie which came out in actual movie theaters worldwide. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find time to go and watch it when it was in the movie theaters but with it arriving on Digital I was determined. And, I’m glad to say, it was just as fun and hilarious as I expected it to be.

A Fun Twitter Poll About Rey

A couple of days ago I tweeted a fun twitter poll about one of Star Wars‘ greatest new characters; Rey and to my great surprise it got a lot more traction than I expected. It was a day-long poll so it’s over with but what was so incredible about the poll were the results. And so, I wanted to share those results with you all because it’s just fun.

So as you can see from this tweet I asked everyone in which film did they prefer Rey and look at those numbers! The Force Awakens just barely managed to edge out The Last Jedi. Isn’t that awesome?

A lot of times I say that Star Wars fans are divided about these current trilogy movies straight down the middle but there is never an actual statistic to back that claim but this proves that point immensely.

I was so fascinated by the results of this poll that I felt that I had to share it with you all and I hope you enjoyed. Next week I will introduce another Star Wars but this time I’ll make sure to write a post about it that day so you all can get in on the action as well. 🙂

If you were to choose which movie you thought Rey was the coolest which movie would you pick? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day. May the Force be with you.

(And by the way, I pick Rey from The Last Jedi.) 🙂

More News Involving ‘The Mandalorian’ Has Arrived!

It seems that Deadpool actress, Gina Carano, is set to join Pedro Pascal in a lead role in the upcoming live-action series. Of course, this hasn’t been officially announced by Star Wars yet but with The Hollywood Reporter breaking the news it definitely seems legitimate.

Oh, I’m getting more excited for this show by the second. What do you think of this news? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

‘A Wrinkle in Time’ Is More Than a Beautiful Movie

A Wrinkle In Time was one of the most anticipated films early in the year but when the film received terrible reviews it quickly became something I didn’t care to see. But, thanks to Netflix, I decided to watch it yesterday and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised.

One thing I knew going into this film was that it is undeniably gorgeous and this was elaborated many times in the course of the movie. But the beauty of the film, surprisingly, wasn’t the main aspect of the film that pulled me in. It was, in fact, the story.

A Wrinkle in Time is a film, at its root, that is about accepting one’s faults and letting those imperfections shine in the most beautiful ways. That concept leads to the movie’s lead character, Storm Reid’s Meg.

Meg is your typical insecure tween girl. She gets bullied at school which makes her feel hateful toward her image in the world. She doesn’t want to give in to the sadness that lives within her because of her father’s disappearance so she shuts everyone else out and treats everyone in a cold manner. She doesn’t allow herself to be the powerful warrior that she can be because she believes she’s not good enough. But during the course of her wild adventure with her adopted younger brother Charles Wallace and her newfound friend Calvin, she learns to love herself and feel confident in the incredible person that she is.

The Lead Actor for ‘The Mandalorian’ Has Been Revealed!

Just last month the live-action Star Wars show set to appear on Disney’s upcoming streaming service, Disney+, wowed fans around the world with an exclusive image featuring the show’s mysterious lead character and the release of the name; The Mandalorian. But now the man behind the mask has been revealed and of course, I’m here to share this exciting news with you all.

Pedro Pascal, who you may know for his lead role in the critically-acclaimed Netflix series, Narcos and his role in the Emmy-winning series Game of Thrones, has been announced to play the lead in The Mandalorian. Um, how awesome is that?

First off, he looks like he’d be an awesome Star Wars character. Secondly, it looks like Disney is continuing the trend of diversity by casting the lead as a man of color for the series. That’s always exciting. And third, because he is such an incredible actor he will bring a delightful grittiness to this bounty hunter series.

This is GREAT news and now I am even more excited for this show.

How do you feel about this news? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

My Five Favorite Stan Lee Cameos

Marvel, the superhero franchise that has changed the movie industry as of late. Every current franchise, even Star Wars, has modeled their productivity after Marvel’s booming success. And the man helping oversee this incredible operation was Stan Lee.

Stan Lee helped create the world of superheroes that I have grown to love so much over the years. But he didn’t let his work go unattended. He made sure to remind us all that he was the one who brought these incredible characters to life as he made cameos in nearly all of his Marvel movie and tv projects. He even made an animated cameo in Big Hero 6 which I just recently found out was part of the Marvel brand as well.

And these cameos have become some of the joy of watching these films. We don’t know where he’ll appear or what he’ll be doing but whenever his cameo arrives it brings a smile and maybe even a laugh to anyone watching.

So, to commemorate this man that can only be heralded as one of the greatest creative minds of the past century, I’m going to share with you my five favorite Stan Lee cameos in the MCU. I hope you enjoy.

5. Avengers: Age of Ultron

Stan Lee’s cameo in Age of Ultron was hilarious, to say the least, as he played an old man (obviously) attending the Avengers party. In this movie, he asked Thor for a sip of his special Asgardian alcohol and it did not bode well for him. It was a very funny cameo and it makes me laugh every time.

Rule 3: List 7 Seven Fun Facts About Yourself

Okay, here are seven facts about myself that I’d love to share.

  1. I love to run. There’s something about the exhilaration of smelling and feeling the air while running that’s unbeatable.
  2. I love ‘Star Wars’ as you all know. 🙂
  3. I love to read. Reading was my first passion as a young girl. A book can take you to another world that sometimes even movies can’t. And that’s why I still enjoy the pleasure of sitting down and reading a good book every now and then.

  5. I’ve been to New York City over twenty times. At one time the Big Apple was one of my bucket list destinations but now I know the city backward and forward and I’m very proud of that.
  6. My favorite dessert is ice cream (with cheesecake at a close second.)
  7. I can read a 500+ page book in two days (and I’ll enjoy every word of it.)

So, those are the seven fun facts I wanted to share about myself.
