‘She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’ Was Really Funny Today

The last few weeks of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law have left me feeling mixed about the show. This week’s episode, however, was the first one that felt like maybe the story was finally hitting its stride.

With another guest star appearance from Wong and plenty of interesting characters, this episode felt fun/funny to watch.

What was most promising about this episode was its entertainment value. This undoubtedly was the best episode so far and if this trend continues (and I’m saying this knowing Daredevil is coming which is going to be awesome) this show, by its conclusion, could be really good. It’s not meant to be something as profoundly defining as Loki or as psychologically interesting as Moon Knight but it will mark its place in the MCU as a welcome addition to the franchise.

And this week, thankfully, made me like Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk again.

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

Halbrand: Unraveling the Mystery

There are a lot of characters in The Rings of Power. So many, in fact, that we haven’t even met all of them yet in the first couple of episodes. But there’s one character that is one of the most intriguing in the series so far and that is the original character created by J.D Payne and Patrick McKay called Halbrand.

From the very first image that was released featuring Halbrand, it was obvious that he was the new Aragorn-type human character in this story. There weren’t many details to grasp from his character, considering that the writers have steeped his story in mystery. Now that we’ve seen the first two episodes and have met Halbrand my theory on where his story could lead in this show has become more and more apparent. So, let me share that theory.

The theory that I first entertained was that he was, in fact, Sauron in disguise. This would’ve been an interesting dynamic if he had befriended Galadriel only to eventually betray her. Her disdain for him would’ve been even deeper and therefore that connection would’ve become something far more interesting than we originally thought. But I have a better theory, one that doesn’t involve Halbrand being Sauron which would honestly be kind of lame.

‘The Rings of Power’ Was So Good!!!!

Last night I watched the first two episodes of The Rings of Power and it met every one of my expectations in an absolutely stunning fashion. The beginning starts a little differently than maybe expected but what it sets up is a storyline that makes Galadriel’s dogged determination in this show feel warranted and comprehensible.

The first two episodes are perfect because they made us care about every single storyline and the characters that inhabited these varying sections.

Galadriel is on a mission to find Sauron and she will not be denied. Not until she has found the very evil who took her brother’s life from her.

‘She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’: Cameos Are King in Episode 3

Last week’s episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law was the very epitome of underwhelming. Thankfully, this week was a lot more enjoyable. For the first time since the show’s premiere, this series felt like the comedy it marketed itself as. It was silly from the start all the way to the end with another post-credits scene that will stick in the minds of all who choose to watch this show.

She-Hulk is not the best thing to arrive in Marvel’s Phase 4 but it definitely has a chance to be its most memorable installment. Plus, it’s nice to see so many people enjoying the series as a whole thanks to its hilarious addition of wild cameos. This show is simply fun and sometimes that’s all we need.

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

‘Samaritan’ Actually Was Much Better Than I Expected

Last night I watched Sylvester Stallone’s newest film, Samaritan, with my family and I have to admit, I enjoyed it. I was ready to not like this movie but as the story continued I found myself invested in the characters and the drama that was unfolding.

The worst thing about this movie was the film’s villain who looked like a near carbon copy of the vampire David from The Lost Boys. His presence in the film was really distracting because of how bad the script was surrounding the antagonist and the actor who portrayed him so terribly.

All in all, Samaritan isn’t a brilliant film but it is an enjoyable matinee movie that I think is worth watching for roughly two hours. And the plot twist in this film was legitimately gasp-inducing.

I’m giving it 87 out of 100 and 3.5 out of 5 stars.

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

My Weekly Short Story: The Sunlight Through the Trees

When Pil tried to remember her years as a toddler there weren’t many memories to grasp onto…except for one.

It was small and seemingly insignificant. A memory laced with laughter and smiles, the occasional huff of a horse, the incessant creaking of rolling carriage wheels, the soothing sound of her father’s warm voice, the comforting touch of her mother’s soft hands, and a bright yet distant light.

This dappled light seeped through the trees that rushed overhead like promises from a fairy; a glowing warmth that kissed Pil’s small round face and made her believe anything was possible.

This memory seemed insignificant but for Pil, now seventeen years old, it was a treasure to hold onto for the rest of her life.

I. Love. MOVIES!
