Who’s Your Favorite Chris?

As you may know, there are four prominent Chris’s in Hollywood, all of which have starred in superhero movies; Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pratt, and Chris Pine. These four Chris’s have been in our eyeballs in some of the biggest blockbusters of all time for years and yet everyone has their favorite Chris. That’s why I thought it would be the perfect topic for this week’s Who’s Your Favorite?

Chris Hemsworth

Before Thor in 2011 Chris Hemsworth wasn’t a household name. The Australian actor, however, would immediately rise to Hollywood fame as he took a superhero popular among Marvel fans and brought him to the big screen in a faithful adaptation of the character. Plus, plenty of people were captivated by the actor’s impressive physique, which has been on full display in his various shirt off scenes throughout nearly every movie that he has ever been in.

Now, eight years later, he’s still providing people plenty of joy with his role as Thor in the Marvel movies and his recent role in Men in Black: International. Continue reading Who’s Your Favorite Chris?

The Dark Knight Lives (TWENTY-EIGHT)

Blake Lively could not seem to shake the fact that he had seen Mr. Goldman before. In Gotham Park, he had stood a distance away from the stage but there was a disturbing familiarity to Mr. Tom Goldman that had his brain throbbing with frustration.

He tried to let go of his worries as he stood in the lobby of the orphanage that the Wayne Manor now housed. Behind him, he could hear the voices of children permeating the walls of the mansion. It brought him memories of when he used to be an orphan. Those years of his life hadn’t brought the fondest memories but…there were memories that he recalled with joy.

To Alternate Beginnings

My first crack at fan fiction arrived via The Last Jedi. Last February my first fanfiction series was created. It was called My Version of The Last Jedi. The rest is history.

At the time, I was peeved by some of the decisions made in The Last Jedi so I decided to tell my own story. It would conclude in a trilogy that featured Episode X: The Chosen One and my newest member of my Star Wars fanfic family, Episode X: The Reckoning.

Now, as I sit back knowing that The Rise of Skywalker could’ve been SO MUCH BETTER I’ve decided to rewrite the trilogy finale in the way I imagined would’ve been awesome.

This revision will feature ideas and similarities to the actual movie while still telling a different story than the one we were given. I’ve already begun to work on it and I am excited to begin sharing it in the near future. Stay tuned for the story’s poster.

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

A Movie Ranking: Oscar Isaac

Over the past few years, Oscar Isaac has become one of the most prominent actors in Hollywood. Of course, my first introduction to him was in Star Wars: The Force Awakens when he appeared as the dashing Resistance pilot with a bit of a Han Solo streak and piloting skills that utterly wowed me. After that, my interest in his work has definitely grown.

There are several movies of his that I haven’t seen that intrigue me and one day maybe they’ll be on this list. But for now, he’s my subject for this week’s A Movie Ranking. Enjoy!

6. Triple Frontier

Ben Affleck, Pedro Pascal, Charlie Hunnam, Oscar Isaac, and Garrett Hedlund in Triple Frontier (2019)

If you’re looking for a movie that’ll get you through two hours on a boring day Triple Frontier is the film to watch. It’s basically Ocean’s Eleven meets Lone Survivor and Sicario. It’s an interesting enough concept to keep you engaged in the movie but it’s not good enough to watch multiple times.

What I found funny though was that Oscar Isaac’s character was nicknamed Pope. Take away one P and he’s Poe. Lol. Continue reading A Movie Ranking: Oscar Isaac

The Dark Knight Lives (TWENTY-SEVEN)

Harley Quinn and Pamela Isley were awaiting The Penguin’s arrival. They couldn’t believe it. His plan had played out just like he envisioned and now Gotham was ready to have him as their mayor. Him! Mr. Goldman. It was almost laughable.

When The Penguin arrived in his secret underground lair Harley Quinn was the first to reach him.

“You did it!” she giggled. “Ha-ha! You did it.”

The Penguin walked past her, a scowl on his face. Pamela stopped him, placing a hand on his arm.

“What’s wrong?” she asked him. “Isn’t this what you wanted?”

He looked at her, his expression perturbed. “Yes, I wanted this. But there’s a glitch in my plan.”

Harley’s eyebrows scrunched. “Glitch? What are you talking about?”

“Robin,” he told them. “Robin has seen my face. Remember, when he was here in our captivity? He saw me? He talked to me? If he contacts the new Commissioner or the news my plan is ruined.”

Harley crossed her arms. “You should’ve let me kill him.”

He whirled, swinging his cane. Pamela stopped the cane with a sprig of ivy that she conjured from the stone floor.

“She’s right you know,” Pamela told him. “You thought he would die in the river. He didn’t.”

He snatched his cane away. “I know my mistake!” He stepped toward her. “But you and Harley were supposed to kill him last night.”

Pamela’s jaw clenched.

“How were we supposed to know he was going to have friends?” Harley replied frustratedly.

The Penguin looked at her. “He is a liability to my plan. As long as he is alive…”

Pamela nodded. “We’ll find him. And we’ll get rid of him. We promise.”

The Penguin snarled. “Hurry. Time is of the essence!”

Harley Quinn saluted him mockingly. “Yes, sir!” she yelled before turning to leave the underground cavern.

As Pamela turned to follow her, The Penguin grabbed her wrist.

“It would do you well to find him, otherwise…” he whispered menacingly.

Her eyes flashed with anger and her right hand curled. He choked as she conjured a swath of ivy around him, lifting him from the ground by his throat.

“You can pretend to have authority over everyone else but don’t you dare threaten me,” she told him. “I’m not someone you want to get on your bad side.”

With her warning plain in his ears, she released him before leaving the underground cavern, her heels clicking against the stone. Rubbing his neck, he stared after her, his teeth bared in anger.

“I know your weakness, Pamela!” he yelled after her.

She stopped momentarily.

“Don’t forget that.”

She looked back at him one last time before exiting the cavern.

Watching ‘A Bug’s Life’ For the First Time

One of the best things about Disney+ is discovering new movies or television shows to enjoy. As a child, one of my favorite films was Antz so A Bug’s Life has always been a film I’ve wanted to see. My sister and I finally watched it the other evening and I LOVED it.

I’m a Pixar fan. This movie reiterated why.

It was so funny, so full of life, packed full of lovable and sometimes terrifying characters, and by the conclusion, I was beaming with joy.

A Bug’s Life was far better than I expected and a true testament to great and engaging storytelling.

I’m giving this movie 95 out of 100 and 4.5 out of 5 stars. It’s not perfect but it’s darn-near close to being an impeccable movie.

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