Who Is The Greatest Pilot In The Galaxy?

There are a lot of fantastic pilots in Star Wars. In fact, a great pilot is always an essential character to have as a part of any crew in Star Wars. Without one, you’re missing a key aspect of being able to get out of trouble if need be.

Throughout my time watching this franchise there have been many remarkable pilots. Han Solo. Luke Skywalker. Wedge Antilles. Anakin Skywalker. Poe Dameron. Rey. Kylo Ren. And there are many more. But of these pilots who is the greatest? It’s one of the hardest questions I have ever asked myself of this franchise.

So, I will judge these pilots off of three criteria. 1: Evasion. 2: Target Destruction Rating. And 3: Sweet Moves.

To make this post as minimal as possible I will decipher who the best pilot is between these three finalists; Han Solo (of course), Poe Dameron (this is also not a surprise), and Anakin Skywalker. All three of these pilots have shown us their skills multiple times over multiple situations and so it gives me more room to judge. (But I would like to give a quick shout out to Kylo Ren and Rey who are also fantastic pilots in their own right.)

Okay, let the judging begin.

The Cast of ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Gets A Little Interesting

With the trailer dropping for Avengers: Endgame last week the film’s imminent arrival truly feels concrete and while there wasn’t much to get excited about from the surprisingly underwhelming teaser it looks like teases for the film’s storyline can be found elsewhere; in the casting list.

SPOILER ALERT AHEAD! These new entries in the cast are heavy spoilers for the movie so if you’d rather stay in the dark I suggest you stop reading now. Thank you for heeding this warning. 🙂

‘Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures’ Continues To Impress With Its Latest Shorts

Disney released a new animated series focusing on some of the most iconic Star Wars characters and their most memorable moments and five more entries in the series have arrived. So, of course, I’m here to share them with you. Enjoy!

Chewie vs. Holochess-Let the Wookie Win

I liked this short but I didn’t love it. Chewbacca is, more than anything, a very nice character but if you’ve never watched Star Wars before this short makes it seem like he’s mean. I don’t know if I exactly that.

Chewie can have his moments but he’s nowhere near as ferocious as this short makes him seem.

Who’s Your Favorite Marvel Heroine?

The MCU may have an abundance of awesome male heroes but over the years there has also been a rise of incredible heroines who manage to steal the show simply by their commanding presence. But which of these fascinating, crime-stopping, alien-annihilating ladies is your favorite? Here’s the list.

Mantis

Mantis is extremely lovable because of her sweet and innocent personality. She’s played a smaller role than most of these other heroines but her presence is undeniable and she is an asset to the team.

Nebula

Nebula hasn’t had the easiest journey but she has found a way to endure. She fought by Ronan’s side in Guardians of the Galaxy and after being reunited with her beloved sister she turned down a different path; one of revenge and redemption. How her journey will end, no one knows, but she will play an integral role in the fight against Thanos.

The Women of ‘Mission: Impossible-Fallout’

Ever since the first Mission: Impossible 22 years ago this franchise has become a favorite of anyone who loves a good action movie. Now the franchise has six movies and with its latest and best installment yet this franchise is easily one of my favorites of all time. But what really made Fallout stand out was its incredible inclusion of women in the film.

Up to this point we have only ever seen, at the max, three women in a single Mission: Impossible film and most of the time those women are killed off before we can get a good grasp on their character (remember Keri Russel’s character in Mission: Impossible III?) Fallout didn’t do that. In fact, it gave us an all-time high in terms of its inclusion of women with four awesome females who stole the show and took control of their various situations. So, I’m going to celebrate these women and all of the importance they brought to this film.

Erika Sloane

Erika Sloane, the newest director of the CIA, is a boss! She’s so awesome. Her character doesn’t appear often in the film but when she does she steals the show with her authoritative personality and Angela Basset portrays the character perfectly. Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt isn’t usually intimidated by anyone but there is definitely a respect he holds for her that is beautiful to observe.

My Full Analysis of the ‘Captain Marvel’ Trailer

As you may know the second trailer for Captain Marvel dropped the last night, wowing viewers around the world. The trailer, however, still managed to keep the movie’s overall plotline a secret while still providing us with enticing shots and awesome implications for what we should expect from the film. I appreciate that. Trailers are supposed to intrigue the moviegoer into watching the movie, not share with us the entire plotline, spoilers and all. And that’s what this trailer did in a phenomenal way.

While there wasn’t anything overly telling in the trailer I’m still going to share with my full analysis of the trailer and all of the things that stood out to me. Enjoy!

1. Nick Fury

This is just as much as Nick Fury’s origin story as Captain Marvel’s as we get to see him in his earlier stages working at S.H.I.E.L.D. I love how the trailer highlighted his naivety, a trait that usually isn’t associated with the stern, one-eyed Nick Fury that we have grown to know. Seeing a younger Nick Fury whose experience with superheroes and their frightful enemies is absent is an exciting prospect for the film and an exciting setup for Nick Fury and Captain Marvel’s potential reunion in Avengers 4.

It’s Official: Scarlet Witch and Vision Are Getting Their Own Series

Disney has announced a few exciting new live-action series for the company’s streaming service in the past month and it seems like the good news isn’t coming to an end, as it has been officially announced that there will be a series focusing on yours truly, Scarlet Witch and Vision. This sounds so exciting for so many different reasons.

First off, they’re both very unique and powerful but they’ve never been given the chance to enjoy the spotlight. By the time they got any recognition with Infinity War, they were both dead.

Secondly, the story could easily focus on these two characters in a prequel sort of fashion as the series follows their story together in the years between Civil War and Infinity War. That could be very interesting for so many reasons and it can show us the full evolution of Vision and Scarlet Witch’s compelling romance.

Of course, Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany may not actually reprise their roles for the series (I’m hoping they do) but whatever the case, I can’t wait to watch this film. Wow, I think Disney+ is going to be a very fun streaming service to have.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have an absolutely spectacular day.
