My Ten Favorite Movie Endings

I’ve seen a whole bunch of GREAT movies in my time but there’s nothing more memorable than an awesome ending. A movie can be really good but if the ending is sub par then the movie ends up being sub par. So, I’m here to share with you the ten movie endings that have utterly rocked my world, in fascinating, thrilling, and sometimes chilling ways. Enjoy!

The Empire Strikes Back

The Empire Strikes Back is easily one of the greatest Star Wars movies (and sci-fi films) ever made. Every time I watch it I am simply awed by the fact that it came out in 1980 because it is still, to this day, one of the best renditions of special effects ever created in a movie. From the asteroid field chase to the Cloud City sequence this movie is filled with incredible moments but the ending of the film is literally the cherry on the sundae.

The movie is already really, really good but the ending is simply magical for me. It has made me cry, covered me in super goosebumps, and just taken my imagination to other places. It’s definitely one of my favorite endings.

Here Are Some Characters Who Might Not Have Survived The Snap

Infinity War¬†ended with quite a shocking conclusion as Thanos managed to obtain all six Infinity Stones and wipe out half of the universe (emphasis on¬†half of the universe.) I was of course shocked to see some of my favorite heroes turn into brown ash such as Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, Black Panther, etc. but recently I’ve begun to wonder who else may have been wiped from existence after the terrible event. So, I’m going to share with you all of the other characters that might have disappeared as well. Enjoy!

Wong

Wong made a brief appearance in¬†Infinity War¬†where he fought alongside Iron Man and Doctor Strange against two of Thanos’s children. He, of course, survived that encounter but can we be sure that he survived the snap? Nothing is certain.

Who’s Your Favorite ‘Lord of the Rings’ Character?

The Lord of the Rings is, in my opinion, the greatest fantasy novel ever made and the same can be said for the movies as well. People have tried to bring fantasy to life in the way that Peter Jackson did in the early 2000s’ but no one has reached the pinnacle of epicness that he did with those films. I’ve seen each movie combined at least three hundred times over the years, that’s how much I love them. Part of the reason why these characters are so amazing is because the characters are so ridiculously cool. So, on this week’s segment of¬†Who’s Your Favorite¬†I’m here to ask you which of these awesome characters is your favorite? Here they all are.

Um…Is Tom Cruise Going To Become Green Lantern?

If you didn’t know (’cause I just found out yesterday evening) DC Comics is working on bringing a new¬†Green Lantern¬†movie to theaters in 2020 which would be its nine year rebirth after the incredible DC Comics flop version of¬†Green Lantern¬†seven years ago which starred Ryan Reynolds. Ryan Reynolds, however, teamed up with Marvel to play the role of Deadpool and that would turn out to be a SERIOUS upgrade. But, as the newest¬†Green Lantern¬†film starts getting ready for production the casting ballot is out and it seems that Tom Cruise may become the man for the job.

Armie Hammer, who you may know for his role in the Oscar-nominated¬†Call Me By Your Name, is supposedly in the running to play the role of Green Lantern in this upcoming superhero revival but it’s been reported that the production company wants a big name actor to potentially play Green Lantern. And that’s where Tom Cruise comes in.

He has been approached about the rumor and he says he will gladly take on the role, on one condition which is that he doesn’t want Green Lantern to die in the movie. If they don’t kill off Green Lantern then he really may take the role! Can you imagine that? Tom Cruise taking his resum√© to the next level by playing a DC Comics superhero? That sounds kind of awesome but it could also be a tad bit ridiculous at the same time.

Marvel has been geniuses behind their casting for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man. Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange. Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther. Tom Holland as Spider-Man. The list goes on and on. DC Comics, however, hasn’t made the best casting decisions except to cast Henry Cavill as Superman (he truly looks like Superman) and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.¬†Tom Cruise as Green Lantern could be a really awesome decision or a really bad one at the same time.

And to validate that this may actually happen the director for the past few Mission: Impossible movies, Christopher Mcquarrie, has been in talks with the production of the Green Lantern movie. So, yeah, we may really see Tom Cruise become a superhero within the next couple of years. Wow!

How does this news sound to you? Would you like to see Tom Cruise play Green Lantern or do you think that would be a bad idea? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

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

Should Anakin Skywalker Make An Appearance in ‘Episode IX’?

For the past two¬†Star Wars¬†movies in this current trilogy rumors have circulated that Anakin Skywalker would make an appearance in the films. In¬†The Force Awakens¬†they went far enough to create concept art showcasing Anakin Skywalker who would have appeared in Rey’s vision. He, unfortunately, didn’t make it into the end product of the film.

In¬†The Last Jedi¬†it was rumored that Rey would experience in one of her Force-training exercises a vision where one of the sea monsters (that Luke ended up milking) was living in a cave and it would transform into Anakin Skywalker. (That sounds reminiscent of Luke’s vision in the cave on Dagobah.) That also didn’t end up happening.

That rumor from¬†The Last Jedi¬†seemed all the more palpable because Hayden Christensen showed up at some¬†Star Wars¬†conventions last year, which he has’t done in a while.

No rumors have started circulating about Anakin making an appearance in¬†Episode IX¬†but if this is supposedly the Skywalker saga finale shouldn’t he be in it in some form or another? It’s already rumored that Darth Vader is going to make a cameo appearance so maybe he won’t show up after all.

Do I think he should be in the movie? Yeah, why not? I would love to see a Force Ghost Anakin Skywalker talk a little bit of sense into his deranged grandson, Ben Solo. I think it would be positively awesome. And one thing J.J Abrams knows how to do is to deliver a lot of fan-service moments that’ll make us all very, very happy.

What do yo think? Do you think Anakin should return in¬†Episode IX¬†or should he remain absent? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

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

The Five Best Moments in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

For a long while I couldn’t figure out which moments in¬†Avengers: Infinity War¬†I loved the most because there are so many incredibly AWESOME parts in this movie that it’s hard to decide. But after seeing this film over ten times now I feel that I finally have distinguished the moments that make the happiest in this superb superhero flick. So, of course, I’m here to share them with you. Enjoy!

1. Iron Man vs. Thanos

Tony Stark has feared the arrival of Thanos for years. He’s gone through PTSD after the Battle of New York, he made Ultron because he wanted to create a defense mechanism that would help protect the world from Thanos’s eventual arrival, and finally, in¬†Infinity War, these two characters that have known of each other from across the cosmos have themselves a one-on-one duel. It’s awesome!

Iron Man gets in quite a few licks with that incredible nanotech suit of his but at the end of the day Thanos is truly the most powerful villain in the universe and that becomes quickly obvious as he defeats Tony. This scene makes me so happy every time I watch it because to see these two goliaths on opposite sides fight each other is pretty cool indeed.

Marvel’s Evolution in the Past Six Years

After recently owning Avengers: Infinity War I decided to have a Marvel marathon, starting with The Avengers. It was kind of fascinating seeing the movies literally evolve and get better over the course of the years and it was so awesome in fact that I want to share my experience with you. Enjoy!

2012: The Avengers

When¬†The Avengers¬†came out six years ago I remember being blown away by how awesome the movie was. The fact that it brought all of these heroes together in such a cohesive way was marveling. Now when I watch it I get nostalgic seeing the beginning of these characters’ relationships and their involvement in this franchise. Iron Man, at that time, was the only character to have two solo movies but everyone else was just finding their footing.

The Battle of New York is still a blast to watch even after all of these years and it’s great movie.
