The Title for the Han Solo Film Has Finally Been Revealed

It’s been months since the untitled-Han Solo film started production and now, finally, it has a name. Here it is.

Is this title that surprising? Not really. In fact, it’s so predictable my sister knew this was going to be the name of the movie earlier this year. I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing. I mean, this film is strictly about Han Solo and so shouldn’t the title have something to do with his iconic name? Yes, but my only issue with this title is how it looks.

Rogue One looked like this.

As you can see the font is much thinner and it just looks more appealing. Then you’ve got Solo, A Star Wars story and the words are just so bold and yellow, it slightly looks childish. I think they could’ve definitely done a better job. I do understand that the titles kind of give a feel for the movie. Rogue One was a much more dire, serious Star Wars film and so it makes sense that the title would be this brown color. Judging from the title for Solo it’s going to be a lot more comedic and lighter than your usual Star Wars film. I hope this isn’t yet another sign that LucasFilm might’ve bitten off more than they can chew with this Han Solo film.

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

Black Panther Has A New Trailer!

February is not a month where movies are known to be to anticipated but this February is going to be an entirely different story with the arrival of Black Panther’s standalone film. I am beyond excited. Black Panther stole the show in Captain America: Civil War with his beautiful feline suit and his vibranium claws and now his movie looks so amazing. Check it out.

A Spoiler-Free Review of War for the Planet of the Apes

When War for the Planet of the Apes was coming out in July I actually didn’t want to see it. I had seen the last one and it wasn’t that great so I figured this movie wouldn’t be too good either. Then I heard so many fantastic reviews about it that I just decided maybe I should watch it after all. So it became available on Digital and I finally watched it. Here’s what I have to say about it.

This is hands down the best Planet of the Apes movie that has ever been made. First of all, the CGI was mindblowing. I mean look at this picture. This is Caesar, played by the legendary Andy Serkis, and he’s a CGI character, yet he looks about as real as the humans in the movie. There were so many close-up shots of monkeys’ faces in the movie, mainly Caesar, that I was just watching the movie stunned. The CGI never wavered, the apes never began to look fake, it really was impressive and downright stunning to see all of these expressions and actions the apes made and it just never felt artificial.

Where Does Spider-Man: Homecoming Rank in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Yesterday I wrote a review about Spider-Man: Homecoming and I absolutely loved the film but how does it stack up against the other Marvel films that have come before it? Well, this is what I’m going to find out and I hope you enjoy.

1. Captain America: The Winter Soldier

I loved Spider-Man: Homecoming, it was a pretty flawless movie. There’s something about The Winter Soldier, however, that really makes me happy. I watched this film four times in the movie theaters and now, three years after it came out, it still reigns supreme in terms of what Marvel can do. The storyline is simple yet complex, Robert Redford’s portrayal of Secretary Pierce was spot on, Bucky’s arc throughout the movie was one of the better plotlines in Marvel so far, and this was the first movie that Captain America really shined in.

Another reason why the movie was so good is its lack of heroes with super incredible abilities. Captain America, while he retains superhuman strength, speed, etc, he isn’t as powerful as someone like, say, Thor, or even Spider-Man for that matter. And then Black Widow is only a Shield agent, she’s not a superwoman, and that gives the movie a grit that most of the Marvel films don’t have. And Falcon is also a rather regular human besides the awesome exoskeleton. That’s why I love this movie. I’m waiting for the day to come for a Marvel film to finally dethrone this one but it still hasn’t happened yet.

2. Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man: Homecoming is undoubtedly the second best Marvel movie ever made. It’s funny, it’s original, and it’s simply a great film. The plot twists were shocking, the characters were fun and engaging, the storyline was impeccable, and it all led to Spider-Man officially becoming an Avenger, which is so exciting.

There are other great Marvel films like Doctor Strange, Captain America: Civil War, the first Guardians of the Galaxy, but this movie was so cute and perfect that there was no way I wasn’t going to rank this as the second best Marvel movie made so far.

So, this is where I rank Spider-Man: Homecoming in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I thank you for reading and I hope you have an absolutely beautiful day.

My Review of Spider-Man: Homecoming

I’ve just recently watched Spider-Man: Homecoming and this is what I have to say about it. This movie. Was. Amazing!!! Marvel really outdid themselves with this Spider-Man film. I had seen nearly every trailer, I had seen all of the tv spots and advertisements, but I never imagined that this movie would be as good as it was.

Spider-Man is a fan favorite, and for good reason. He’s a nerdy kid who obtained outstanding abilities from a radioactive spider and ended up becoming an incredible superhero who saves his hometown from all sorts of diabolical villains. Spider-Man is so famous that even way before I knew anything about the difference between Marvel and DC Comics I knew who Spider-Man was.

There used to be this DVD I would watch, it was a cartoon called The Amazing Spider-Man, and I would watch it all of the time. There was Dr. Octopus, my favorite Spider-Man villain, the Green Goblin, and a whole bunch of other sinister villains. I loved it. I didn’t, at that time, know any other superheroes except for Superman and Batman. And even though I wanted to watch the actual Spider-Man movies I never could because there was just way too much suck facing in those films.

And then Sony just recently made two new Spider-Man films starring Andrew Garfield as the wall-climbing superhero and they weren’t that great. I only saw the second one with Jamie Foxx as the villain and while I did like Spider-Man the rest of the movie was terrible.

Then in 2016 Marvel partnered with Sony and a new Spider-Man was born.

My Favorite Part of The Last Jedi Trailer

It’s the last day of the week and this has been a great week for Star Wars fans. The Last Jedi trailer debuted this Monday and I’m still losing my mind over it. There were so many fantastic shots in that trailer that it’s pretty much a perfect trailer, but there is one section of the trailer that happens to always make my heart thrum with excitement and I am here to talk about it. Enjoy!

What I loved the most about this trailer is that it happened to surprisingly showcase a lot of footage involving Kylo Ren. Kylo Ren is such an interesting, complex character and I love that this trailer showed that this next Star Wars film is going to continue evolving his story.

The Porgs Are Stealing Everybody’s Hearts in the New Last Jedi Trailer

I’m one of those Star Wars fans that doesn’t like Ewoks very much. Ewoks destroy my brain. They’re not cute. They’re just very annoying teddy bears with sticks and rocks. So when I heard that there would be these cute creatures called Porgs living on the planet, Ach-To, with Luke I was excited and skeptical. I’m totally cool with cute new creatures in Star Wars but the question was, would these Porgs be the new Ewoks.

When the behind-the-scenes clip debuted this July I got my first close up look at the Porgs and I was pleasantly surprised.

The Porg looked very, very adorable and I was confident that these new alien creatures wouldn’t be the bane of my existence like the Ewoks are. And so then Entertainment Weekly had a special spread on The Last Jedi back in August and it gave me another look at the Porgs.
