Thanos May Have Met His End, but ‘Avengers: Endgame’ May Not Be the End of Thanos

Avengers: Endgame is easily one of the greatest cinema achievements ever made, bringing about the end of an eleven-year story that left a shiny red bow on the Marvel franchise…so far. With both of my viewings of the film, there were cheers, tears, and plenty of surprises. One of those surprises was Thanos’s involvement in the film.

Thanos would end up playing a smaller role than he did in Avengers: Endgame but his intimidating presence was still as palpable as ever. He would end up giving The Avengers a run for their money as he tried to fulfill his new plan; wiping out the entire population in the galaxy and create a new one. Basically, he tried to make himself a god, for real.

His plan would be foiled by the heroic ventures of The Avengers, namely Iron Man, and he, like the rest of his army, would be turned to dust.

Movie Review Flashback: I’ve Seen Half of ‘The Hunger Games’ Series and I’ve Got Mixed Feelings

When The Hunger Games train arrived a few years ago I happened to miss it. I didn’t see a single film or read one of the books but today I finally got a chance to see The Hunger Games and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. I was excited. I knew the movies and books had become somewhat a cultural phenomenon and I wanted to finally know what the hype was all about.

I turned The Hunger Games on, kind of expecting it to be a disappointing movie experience and immediately I was riveted. There was something about the movie that drew me in and got me invested in these characters that I didn’t know but immediately wanted to know.

Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) was the type of heroine that I love to read in YA novels. She was fierce, unafraid to speak her mind, and unsurprisingly tough and efficient. I immediately liked her.

Peeta was a great character that I grew to like over the course of the movie. He was sweet and kind and I actually started to care about him.

By the time The Hunger Games arrived, I was just as afraid as Katniss at the very thought of the brutal competition. Like I said before, the movie was riveting. It made me cry, it made me gasp, but most importantly it made me happy. I felt relieved to finally see The Hunger Games and to learn that it was actually good.

I’ll give the film a 92 out of 100 and 4.5 out of 5 stars because I enjoyed it that much.

The Chosen One: Chapter Thirty-Seven

Sally

Ora snuck through the grasslands along the edge of the lake, using the moonlight to light her path. Up ahead on the lakeside a village sat bedazzled with lanterns that lit up the town beautifully. She entered the town and made her way to a house located deep within the village.

Casual dwellers of the village spoke when she passed by and she would reply with a simple nod. Her focus, however, was on finding her friend.

She finally reached the home she was looking for; a one-story house that was made in the same fashion as her home. Sneaking up to the back window she tapped on the glass, waited a few seconds, and then tapped on the glass again.

The window opened and out poked her friend, a brown-skinned teenage girl with long black braids and pale brown eyes named Sally.
