‘Justice League’ vs. ‘Thor: Ragnarok’: Which One Wins?

I recently watched Justice League and, surprisingly, I enjoyed it immensely. The story was easy to follow, the action was epic, and it was a great way to bring the six superheroes together. Now that I’ve seen both Thor: Ragnarok and Justice League I am going to determine which movie I enjoyed the most. Enjoy!

The Characters

The Justice League

When you bring together incredible heroes such as Wonder Woman, Superman, Batman etc. it’s always going to be amazing and Justice League wasn’t an exception. The characters, while they were great, a few were a little less awesome than others, mainly Aquaman. When The Avengers came out in 2012 nearly every superhero had their own debut film, except for Black Widow and Hawkeye but they were co-stars of those other movies. Wonder Woman, Superman, and Batman are the only characters in this team who have had their own movie. That means it’s always going to be kind of hard to introduce three new characters in the span of only two hours while trying to keep track on one story line about preventing the end of the world. I’m frankly surprised the new characters were developed as well as they were.

Thor and Co.

While “The Revengers” clearly aren’t as epic as the likes of the Justice League I happened to really like these characters. Thor, after Thor: Ragnarok, has become one of my favorite Avengers because he finally was given the chance to shine with his comedic personality. The Hulk is just…The Hulk. You can’t really do anything with him except make him a giant green rage monster, who can talk, and that’s what makes him great. Valkyrie has become my favorite female hero in Marvel because she’s just that awesome. And Loki, surprisingly, was very lovable in this movie. He wasn’t being the jerk that he normally is. I mean, he kind of was, but it was nice to see him on the side of the good guys this time around.

All in all, I loved Wonder Woman and Cyborg in Justice League but everyone else was okay. When I came away from Thor: Ragnarok I loved every single character equally and I can’t wait to see them all again.

It’s Only Eight Days Away!

The countdown until The Last Jedi is growing smaller! I am ecstatic. There are only eight days left until I finally will be able to sit down in that movie theater and see if any of my theories will have come to fruition. It’s only eight days until I can watch the complete version of Rey training with her lightsaber. It’s only eight days until I see the reason why this movie’s advertising has disturbingly been bathed in red. Like I said before, I am jumping up and down with joy because of my excitement. I mean it’s literally one day away from being only a week left until the movie premieres and I can’t wait.

Okay, here’s the teaser for today.

This is simply a feelgood tv spot. The iconic Star Wars theme makes this one of the lightest teasers so far. There isn’t an intensity to this teaser like some of the other ones have had and that’s nice to see. Sometimes you need that levity so this movie won’t feel like the most dire film in the entire saga. And it’s always awesome to see new footage with Luke Skywalker.

And the Character Today Is…

Captain Phasma!!!! I love her so much and they did her just the way they did Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back. She returned in this film much shinier than she was before. That’s so awesome. I already thought her chrome armor was beautiful but to see it shiny is even better. I’m really hoping that she does have more of a role in this film and I won’t be disappointed a second time. It really would be upsetting if we had to wait two years for her to come back and she’s still a minor character. I do know one thing though. She will have part in some of the action scenes in The Last Jedi and that’s exciting.

Well, that’s my post for today. As I write this it’s getting closer and closer until The Last Jedi and I am losing my mind with excitement.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day. May the Force Be With You. 

 

My Review of ‘Justice League’

I heard the critics and all of their opinions on Justice League. They said it wasn’t a movie worth watching, that it was a huge step backwards from Wonder Woman, and I believed them, that’s why it took me until yesterday to see it. And now that I’ve seen it I’m so glad I did. I have to admit, I enjoyed Justice League immensely. I watched the entire film, credits and all, thinking at any point that the movie was going to turn south and I was going to regret ever coming to see this superhero flick but it never happened! The story was simple yet cohesive, the characters were great, and yes there were flaws but overall I had a great time watching this movie. So, on that note I’m going to tell you all of the things I did and didn’t like about this film. Enjoy!

SPOILER ALERT! If you haven’t seen Justice League yet and you would rather stay in the dark about the movie’s premise and outcomes I would advise you to discontinue reading this now. Okay, I thank you for acknowledging this warning. Now to the review.

It’s Now Nine Days!

The countdown is shortening and I can’t quite believe it. It’s only nine days left and I am positively ecstatic. It’s so close now that I’m not even theorizing or even trying to figure out what’s going to happen in the film because I know all of my answers will be answered in a matter of days. That’s thrilling.

So, this is the teaser I’m highlighting today.

I loved this teaser because anything with new footage of Kylo Ren is always exciting. And Rey is so sure of herself in this teaser. She knows she won’t betray Luke’s trust but will she stick to that promise? Thankfully I only have nine days to find out.

And the Character I’m Celebrating Today Is…

Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo! Whenever there’s a new female character in Star Wars I always get very excited. Especially when they appear different than any other woman in Star Wars. I remember when I heard rumored descriptions of Laura Dern’s character as a pink-haired high positioned member of the Resistance. I was so interested in seeing who this character was. And the pink hair is just so awesome. I’m glad to see the creators of this film thinking outside of the box with these new characters and it once again confirms my excitement for whatever the new trilogy will be that Rian Johnson creates.

Well, that’s my teaser and character for today. I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastically wonderful day. May the Force Be With You.

The Ten Day Countdown Until ‘The Last Jedi’ Begins!

Yes, it is the time and I can’t believe it. The day has finally come where it’s literally only two hands worth away from The Last Jedi coming out. I am stunned. It feels like yesterday when I wrote a post celebrating the four month mark. Now it’s just ten days! Wow. So, to celebrate the beginning of this glorious countdown, I am going to talk about a different teaser and character every day until December 15. Enjoy!

This tv spot is not only one of the best so far but it’s great because it’s only ten days until I’ll be able to see this film in all of its wonderful glory and I am beyond excited. This tv spot is also very good because the music is unlike anything I’ve ever heard when it comes to Star Wars. It’s also kind of creepy whatever’s happening to Rey in this teaser. Who’s calling Rey? Is it Snoke, is it Kylo Ren, or is it something else entirely? I can’t wait to find out.

What’s The Most Awesome Stormtrooper?

Stormtroopers are a staple in Star Wars. You could say they’re more popular than the lightsaber. Throughout the Star Wars films there have been tons of different versions of these white clad soldiers and I’m here to discover which rendition of the iconic stormtrooper I think is the greatest. Enjoy!

The Kashyyk Clone Troopers

These are my least favorite troopers because they don’t look that great to me, simple as that.

Scout Troopers

These troopers have never really stood out to me. Their style is frankly kind of ugly, if I’m being honest. But they’re okay, I guess.

Clone Troopers

While I do love the Clone Troopers the reason why they’re my least favorite is because they’re mostly CGI. There is, of course, the actor who played Jango Fett who wore the clone trooper armor but instead of getting extras to make a more believable clone army they took the lazy approach and just CGI-ed the army. It’s disappointing and it is the unfortunate story of the prequels.

The Ten Best Scenes in Marvel

Over nine glorious years Marvel Studios have accumulated seventeen films and counting and the amazing thing is most of them are pretty good. Last week I wrote a post about my five favorite scenes in Star Wars and after an Avengers: Infinity War teaser debuted last Wednesday it got me thinking, “What are my favorite scenes out of all of the Marvel films so far”? Well, I’m about to share with you the ten scenes that have really made me love Marvel’s fantastic superhero flicks. Enjoy!

10. When Thor, Bruce Banner, and Valkyrie Escape Sakaar

Thor: Ragnarok was one of the best Marvel films made so far and my favorite part of the film was when Thor and co. had to escape Sakaar. First, it was fabulous seeing Valkyrie in action. She could fly a ship pretty well but when she decided to take on their attackers with her bare hands the action scene became just that much better. And then when Thor joined her they became the ultimate Asgardian duo. It plastered a smile on my face and became one of my favorite scenes in Marvel.
