The Monsters Are Here in the New Trailer for ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’

It’s a busy month for next year’s biggest blockbusters as the studios start preparing us for 2019. And now after Marvel excited us with trailers for Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame it seems that Warner Bros. wants to get into the game by releasing a new trailer for its monstrous second installment in the Godzilla series. Here it is.

I watched Godzilla four years ago in the movie theaters. I didn’t enjoy it, which was a bummer considering that I was excited to see it. I was hoping that maybe this sequel would make me feel differently.

This trailer was compelling at first and for the most part, it’s a decent trailer with plenty of potentials but the trailer lost me after I saw actor Thomas Middleditch in the film. There’s nothing particularly wrong with him as an actor but I just can’t unsee him as the VERIZON guy. And because of that I probably will not go and watch this movie. It may turn out to be one of the greatest blockbusters of the year but because the VERIZON guy is in it…I just can’t do it.

How did you feel about this trailer? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

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

Was the Mid-Season Finale of ‘Star Wars: Resistance’ Worth It?

Nine weeks, ten episodes, and we have finally reached the midway conclusion of the first season of Star Wars: Resistance. The question is; was it worth it? Yes, and no.

This week’s episode Station Theta Black was exciting to a certain extent and yet it didn’t grab my attention as much as I would have hoped a Star Wars finale should. It featured Poe Dameron and Kazuda Xiono on a top-secret mission for the Resistance and while it did also include Captain Phasma into the story I just was a tad bit bored.

Maybe I’ve given up caring about this series ever since the dismal episode two weeks ago (The Platform Classic) but it just seemed that the episode was trying to be worthy of a finale rather than just being good.

I loved Poe Dameron’s involvement in the episode because, well, it’s Poe! but unfortunately, he wasn’t even able to make this a finale worth getting pumped about. It was so mediocre in fact that I don’t even care in which direction the series may take once it returns because I’m honestly not that interested.

Now, if the second portion of the series starts to feature Kylo Ren, General Hux, or maybe even Snoke into the mix then maybe I’ll finally start getting excited about this series. Until then my reaction to Star Wars: Resistance is meh.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day. May the Force be with you.

‘Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures’ Continues To Impress With Its Latest Shorts

Disney released a new animated series focusing on some of the most iconic Star Wars characters and their most memorable moments and five more entries in the series have arrived. So, of course, I’m here to share them with you. Enjoy!

Chewie vs. Holochess-Let the Wookie Win

I liked this short but I didn’t love it. Chewbacca is, more than anything, a very nice character but if you’ve never watched Star Wars before this short makes it seem like he’s mean. I don’t know if I exactly that.

Chewie can have his moments but he’s nowhere near as ferocious as this short makes him seem.

‘Hostiles’ Is a Compelling Tale of Friendship and Forgiveness

I love a good Western. I always have. And after watching No Country for Old Men my intrigue in fantastic Western flicks has grown. So, yesterday, I watched a film that was said to be an enjoyable movie last year and that was Hostiles. This movie stars Christian Bale in a gripping story about a retiring soldier named Joe who is faced with the final task as a soldier to escort a group of Indians to their home. At first, the prospect of escorting the Indians to their reservation was repugnant to him, especially considering that the Indians’ leader, Chief Yellow Hawk, had brutally killed his friends in the past. But after he reluctantly took the job (he had a greater incentive when he was threatened to be court-martialed) the movie’s story began.

Hostiles is very much a film about companionship and the power of forgiveness. Each major character had faced some sort of tragedy and had perceived notions of those around them because of those tragedies.

SLIGHT SPOILERS AHEAD!

Breathe, Just Breathe, the ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Trailer Just Dropped!

Remember the other day when I posted about a rumor that the Avengers 4 trailer was going to drop on Wednesday and then it didn’t? Well, I did share with you all that there were also rumors that it would drop today on this glorious Friday but, of course, they were merely that; rumors. Well, it seems that finally the rumors have come true and the Avengers (Endgame) trailer is here. So, hold yourself together, take a deep breath, here it is.

Okay, okay, okay. Marvel is awesome and this is why. They gave us a teaser and yes, it was a teaser. They know we are clinging to every word, every shot, so they gave us abso-lute-ly nothing! I love it! But, because there is legitimate footage before me, here are the five things that stood out to me the most in the trailer.

1. Tony Stark Is In a Desperate Situation

Iron Man is in desperate need of aid as he floats through space deprived of food and water. Tony obviously feels that his end is imminent, reminding us of the direness of the situation that we were left with at the conclusion of Avengers: Infinity War. He’s seen recording a message to Pepper just in case she somehow gets it, sticking to the theme that has remained throughout the franchise of Tony’s immense love for her.

The Women of ‘Mission: Impossible-Fallout’

Ever since the first Mission: Impossible 22 years ago this franchise has become a favorite of anyone who loves a good action movie. Now the franchise has six movies and with its latest and best installment yet this franchise is easily one of my favorites of all time. But what really made Fallout stand out was its incredible inclusion of women in the film.

Up to this point we have only ever seen, at the max, three women in a single Mission: Impossible film and most of the time those women are killed off before we can get a good grasp on their character (remember Keri Russel’s character in Mission: Impossible III?) Fallout didn’t do that. In fact, it gave us an all-time high in terms of its inclusion of women with four awesome females who stole the show and took control of their various situations. So, I’m going to celebrate these women and all of the importance they brought to this film.

Erika Sloane

Erika Sloane, the newest director of the CIA, is a boss! She’s so awesome. Her character doesn’t appear often in the film but when she does she steals the show with her authoritative personality and Angela Basset portrays the character perfectly. Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt isn’t usually intimidated by anyone but there is definitely a respect he holds for her that is beautiful to observe.
