Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag was the first game I played on my XBOX One several years ago (it came in the package deal.) For years I had used the Wii as my gaming system and it was fun, for the most part. Playing Mariokart until I dropped, The Legends of Zelda game, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, Super Mario Smash Bros, you get the picture. I played the Wii for a LONG time and it was fun. But as I got older I wanted to play games made for older people. That led me to eventually having the XBOX One in my teenage years.
Like I was saying at the beginning of this post, the first game I ever played on my XBOX One was Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and it blew me away. Yeah, the graphics weren’t the absolute best in the world but it was beyond a blast to play.
I grew to love Black Flag for its exciting adventures, the fighting matrix, the storyline, everything about the game was super fun and instantly made me an Assassin’s Creed fan. In fact, it’s such a massively wonderful game that I never finished it.
Along with the XBOX One package deal was another Assassin’s Creed game called Assassin’s Creed: Unity and that made me even more of a fan of the series.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been around for ten years and it doesn’t look like the franchise is coming to an end anytime soon. With Avengers 4 about to bring a conclusion to a 22-movie storyline, a new journey is about to begin and that means new heroes will have to arrive to save the day. But who will those new heroes be? I’m not going to pretend that I’m an expert on Marvel characters (I am not) but I have done some research and discovered some very cool characters that could be central pieces to this evolving story. So, here are the characters I would love to see debut in the upcoming Phase 4 of the MCU.
1. Hawkeye (Kate Bishop)
The older Avengers’ reign is coming to an end (quickly) and that means we need new heroes to take their place. With Spider-Man’s debut in Captain America: Civil War the idea of the Young Avengers coming to fruition could easily become something very special and Kate Bishop/Hawkeye is a perfect candidate for that youthful organization.
It’s also perfect because her storyline is simple. She grew up idolizing Hawkeye (he was her favorite Avenger) and decided when she got old enough to follow his footsteps as a bow-wielding superhero. Sounds great if you ask me.

Harry Potter is filled with awesome characters, fantastical creatures, and plenty of awe-inspiring magic. But, in terms of characters, there are a LOT of them that I could put on this list. So, to keep it simple, I’m just going to list the three main characters; Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, and Ron Weasley. They will be the subject of this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? I hope you enjoy!
The famous Harry Potter. The boy who lived, the chosen one, Harry has been destined for greatness ever since he was born and his journey was not only miraculous but inspiring as well. He’s heroic but that didn’t mean he never had doubt in his abilities or his goodness. The road was rocky and often frightening at times and yet Harry still managed to defeat the odds and save the Wizarding World from Voldemort’s evil.
Harry is one of the greatest heroes, in my opinion, of all time.

Last night I was a bit bored so I decided to find a brand new movie to watch. I came across this film, The Three Amigos, and decided to check it out. I’m glad I did. The Three Amigos stars three Saturday Night Live legends; Steve Martin, Chevy Chase, and Martin Short, in a comedic western focusing on, well, the Three Amigos.
The story is set in 1916 and begins by showing a young Mexican woman and her younger brother (I assume) looking for help. A man by the name of El Guapo (played by Alfonso Arau) has her small town under his control and she’s trying to find somebody to defeat El Guapo. As she goes into a church to ask for help she notices that they are playing a movie that features The Three Amigos. She becomes inspired and sends The Three Amigos a telegram promising them one hundred thousand pesos if they defeat El Guapo.
The Three Amigos, however, are simply actors who end up getting fired because their Three Amigos sequel was a box-office failure. In sudden need of work they get the telegram promising a hundred thousand pesos if they stop El Guapo but instead of understanding what the telegram is actually asking of them they think it’s another acting gig. Can you see where this is going?

Last night I saw, for the first time, The Fifth Element which came out in 1997. I’ve been hearing about this movie for years but it wasn’t until yesterday that I actually sat down and watched the film. As I was watching the movie I was flabbergasted by its strangely creative content and the vision that Luc Besson has concocted for this film. I almost fell asleep at the beginning of the movie because I thought it was kind of boring but I managed to stay up and watch the entire film from beginning to end.
While the overall movie clearly wasn’t the best science-fiction film I’d ever seen I still somewhat enjoyed it. But, as I’d say, about thirty minutes into the movie one of the main characters, a perfect being sent to protect Earth named Leeloo was brought to life. When she found herself in containment she, of course, ran away. It’s at this moment where my mind was blown in utter shock.

A teaser poster for the highly-anticipated live-action Aladdin set to come out next May debuted a couple of days ago and last night, during the Thursday Night Football game, the teaser for the film premiered. Here it is.
Um…chills. Aladdin is hands down my favorite classic Disney film next to The Lion King and so seeing it brought to life on the big screen is utterly magical. I loved the music, I loved the sheer beauty of the world I remember seeing over and over again as a child, and the rumbling voice of the entrance (I forgot what it’s called) sounded AMAZING!
They definitely provided us just a tease of what’s to come but I can’t wait to see this movie. I think it’s going to be perfectly magical, as it should be.
What did you think about this teaser? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below. I thank you for reading and I hope you have a magical day.
The last two Star Wars films have featured gorgeous locations that feature fancily dressed characters and fascinating aliens. But, between Canto Bight and Dryden’s yacht, First Light, which one would I rather go to on a 5-star Star Wars vacation?
Canto Bight is a place of beauty and sheer fun. There’s a giant casino, spas, restaurants, it’s basically the nicest place to be in Star Wars. And while it is a very fancy place it wasn’t as amazing as I had expected it to be. It was a beautiful location, there’s no doubt about that, but nothing about Canto Bight really piqued my imagination in the way that I thought it would.
Now, First Light is gorgeous. The golden colors, the strange looking windows, I’ve never seen a yacht in Star Wars before but it’s kind of amazing.
I’m undoubtedly a fan of First Light way more than a fan of Canto Bight. Maybe that’s because the scenes featuring Canto Bight but it just never hit my wow button even though I thought it would.
Which fancy location do you like more; Canto Bight or First Light? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day. May the Force be with you.
