‘She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’ Is Getting Better Each Week!

A few weeks ago despite having enjoyed She-Hulk: Attorney at Law I had it squarely in last place among the MCU Disney+ series. And yet, as the weeks have gone by and the episodes have become more and more enjoyable I can now say, almost definitively, that I like this better than Moon Knight and Ms. Marvel. And this week was kind of the icing on the cake.

‘Deadpool 3’ Is Official And I’m So Excited!

Wow, this just popped out of nowhere. Ryan Reynolds just shared on social media that Deadpool 3 is officially in the works and guess who’s joining him?! Hugh Jackman, baby!

Yep, you heard correctly. Hugh Jackman is back to reprise his role as Wolverine and I couldn’t be happier. A few years ago this would’ve felt strange considering his epic swan song in the literal Oscar-winning movie Logan back in 2017 but now that we have the multiverse the idea of Deadpool and Wolverine starring in a movie together just sounds right.

Well, that was a fun surprise on a seemingly quiet Tuesday.

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

I’ve Seen ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’

*sigh* I was really excited to see this movie. I mean, really excited. Ever since it came out I had heard so many rave reviews about this film that I’ve been waiting for the chance to see what all the hype was about. Well, I just watched it and I have thoughts…`

I have the perfect way to describe this film. Imagine the wacky plots of Regular Show mixed with the multiverse/crude humor of Rick and Morty paired with the heartwarming message of a Disney film. That is Everything Everywhere All at Once.

It’s a story about a woman who must save the multiverse from a great evil. To explain more would be to start delving into spoilers so I will not do that. What I will say is that the film is weird and its humor, while at times legitimately funny, wasn’t my style. I’m one of those people who isn’t a fan of Rick and Morty so you may understand why I wasn’t a fan of this movie.

‘The Rings of Power’ Will Be a Masterpiece…We’ve Just Got to Get There

We’re five episodes into The Rings of Power and that counts as five hours of storytelling and yet the series has been met with a lukewarm reception so far. There are either people who are enjoying the film for its gorgeous visuals, slow-burn dramatics, or its sweeping score. And then there are others who find the show tediously boring or are not fans of the divisive diversions from canon. We’re not going to even delve too deep into the people who are still mad because the show had the audacity to make Galadriel a warrior (which J.R.R Tolkien described in texts about her in the First Age) or to include Black characters in a fantasy world they wanted to claim as all-white.

For me, the first two weeks of viewing were fun but I was still skeptical about the story. The first two episodes undoubtedly sucked me in with their impressive visuals and apparent attempt at setting the groundwork for what could be one of the most epic series ever made. The third episode took a couple of viewings to really embrace. I liked the addition of Numenor and its cast of characters but it almost felt like it was too much to take in at once. Then the fourth episode happened.

‘Avatar’ Is Literally Mindblowing in IMAX 3D

13 years ago when Avatar entered the theaters and shocked the world with its jaw-dropping CGI-created world and characters I was 12 years old. I remember watching the film at home and being dazzled by how pretty the movie was but overall, I wasn’t impressed. I didn’t see the film again until about a decade later when it was playing on television and I decided to revisit it.

As a movie buff, I saw the movie with different eyes. I realized how impeccable the screenplay was, I absorbed the beauty of the film and its characters in a way I never had, and I was impressed by the movie. But I still wasn’t certain if people would get hyped for its sequel after such a long wait.

I’ve recently revisited the film a couple of times and with every viewing the movie seems to get a little better…and then I watched it in IMAX 3D yesterday.

‘She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’: Another Week, Another Fun Episode

First off, there was no Daredevil which I totally expected and was perfectly okay with. Secondly, this episode wasn’t as funny as last week’s episode but it was still fun and delightfully goofy. Third, this might be the shortest review I’ve ever had of a series episode before but I don’t have much to say other than that ending gave me WandaVision vibes and now it feels like the series is starting to get into villain territory. And that, of course, has me intrigued to see what’ll happen in next week’s episode (where Daredevil will, once again, not appear.)

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