What’s Your Favorite Leia Moment?

It’s another Sunday and that means it’s time to visit another segment of Who’s Your Favorite? Today, however, is rather special for Star Wars fans around the world because it is the late-great Carrie Fisher’s birthday (she would’ve been 62.) So, to honor the woman who has brought so many smiles to people across the globe, she is the subject of today’s Who’s Your Favorite?

Now, Leia has countless memorable moments during her time in this franchise but I’m going to take at least one exciting moment from each film that she’s graced for this list. Enjoy!

1. A Rogue One Surprise

Rogue One brought some fantastic surprises near the end of the film as it swiftly led into A New Hope‘s story and one of those shocking reveals was CGI Leia. Not only was it brilliant but it proved that technology could be used in truly exciting ways for future Star Wars films.

My Partial Review of ‘Ocean’s 8’

This past summer a star-studded all-female cast tackled one of the greatest heist series in recent memory–the Ocean’s movies–with their own take on the classic heist tale. Sandra Bullock stars as Danny Ocean’s sister, Debbie Ocean, and the rest is history.

I tried to watch this movie last night but it was so boring I couldn’t even finish it. One of the reasons why I love the Ocean’s trilogy is because of the unique cinematography and the directorial view of Steven Soderbergh. Ocean’s 8 doesn’t have that in the slightest.

The music isn’t good, the plot is horrendously boring, and like I said before, I couldn’t even finish it. The screenwriters thought they were writing a smart script but it came off as stale and dry. The characters weren’t thoughtfully written or memorable.

All in all, once again a remake starring an all-female leading cast failed to deliver. It seems so strange that most popular films starring men never seem to suffer from bad writing or stale plot points. From Ghostbusters to Ocean’s 8, however, these all-female reboots are simply embarrassing to behold. Hopefully the next Terminator movie, which is boasting three female leads, will be the first female-led film with a legitimately fantastic storyline.

I’m giving this film a 71 out of a 100 and 2 out of 5 stars. This movie is the definition of boring.

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

Who’s Your Favorite X-Men Character?

The X-Men are an awesome array of unique characters with incredible abilities. It’s only until recently that I’ve begun to actually care and pay attention to the different heroes and I have to say, they’re pretty awesome. Their movies aren’t as great or easy to follow (timeline-wise) as the MCU movies but if you like superheroes there are tons of heroes to get behind in this franchise. With this many cool characters to enjoy there will always be debate of who’s the best of the X-Men. And that’s why they are the topic of this week’s segment of Who’s Your Favorite? Here are the characters.

(My X-Men knowledge is limited so I will be listing the mainstream characters that I know.)

Cyclops

Cyclops has always been a cool character because of his interesting eye beam ability and the same can still be said from this most recent rendition of the character. While I don’t know much about the X-Men I knew who Cyclops was in my younger age and that shows the impact this hero had on me as a child.

Mystique

mystique

Mystique is easily one of the coolest concepts of a character in the superhero world. The fact that she’s this shape-shifting alien-ish sort of being is remarkable awesome and it’s what makes her so cool. She’s also a great fighter as well. All in all, Mystique is pretty cool.

How Does The ‘Captain Marvel’ Teaser Compare to the ‘Wonder Woman’ Teaser?

The teaser for Captain Marvel came out last Tuesday, shocking the internet and making a whole bunch of Marvel fans super excited to see the highly-anticipated arrival of one of Marvel’s most powerful heroes. But, as I’ve grown to love the teaser more and more I can’t help but wonder what the Wonder Woman teaser was like when it first came out. So, I decided to share with you all a post comparing the two highly-anticipated trailers and discover which one is better. Enjoy!

Here Are Some Other MCU Characters That Should Get Their Own Show

Rumors circled a few days ago that Loki and Scarlet Witch would be getting their own shows on Disney’s new streaming service, Disney Play. But which other Marvel characters should also get their own television series? Here are some ideas.

Blade

Blade hasn’t debuted in the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet but what wouldn’t be cooler than to see this awesome superhero get his own series on Disney’s streaming service, Disney Play. It could be raw but contained enough for a PG-13 audience, it could feature some awesome MCU character cameos, and it could focus on a completely different corner of the MCU that we haven’t seen before. Sounds pretty awesome to me.

Here Are 5 Things That Excited Me About the ‘Captain Marvel’ Trailer

The trailer for Captain Marvel came out two days ago, blowing away the internet with its short but concise trailer that teased a lot of awesomeness. Now that I’ve gotten my head around it and have been able to really evaluate the trailer I’m going to share with you the five things that stood out to me the most from this rather epic teaser. Enjoy!

1. The 90s’ Vibe

One period of the MCU that is practically a blank playing field is the 90s’ which makes this the absolute perfect time to introduce Captain Marvel to the world. She is such a powerful and important character that it seems a little strange that we haven’t heard of her until now but this movie will tell us why she’s been absent until this point.

It’s really awesome, however, seeing Carol Danvers in this time period that I don’t know anything about. The clothes, the Blockbuster store, there are going to be so many awesome references to the 90s’ and I just can’t wait to be taken along for the ride.
