Clemson Has Made It Through The First Round

This was an underwhelming game. NC State was completely outmatched in every aspect. It’s a shame they weren’t able to make it any further but I must congratulate Clemson for their win today. Tomorrow they’ll be going against #14 Duke and according to how they played today they probably won’t be able to beat the Blue Devils.

Next up Wake Forest plays Boston College. I’ll see you at the half.

NC State vs. Clemson: The Halftime Report

Clemson is winning by double digits with a score of 39 points. NC State unfortunately can’t find their groove and only managed to accumulate a score of 28 points. The last minute of the half was very fun to watch with NC State trying to close the gap. Clemson managed to only extend their lead with an astounding block and a quick three that really drove it home how determined they are to win this game. Will NC State be able to bounce back? Probably not. This is basketball though and anything can happen in this amazing sport.

I’ll be posting again when either Clemson or NC State wins. Enjoy the rest of the game!

The ACC Tournament Is Here!

It’s a week into March and men’s college basketball is zooming towards March Madness. Before the fantastic two week tournament there are of course the tournaments for each conference. The thing that makes the ACC so tough is the unpredictability. The worst team in the ACC, if they’re having a good day, can sometimes beat much better teams. It happens all the time and that’s what makes the ACC tournament so fun to watch. Of course everyone can say UNC will probably get to the championship or maybe a team like Florida State but sometimes their dreams can be dashed by an unsuspected underdog who’s maybe the worst in the ACC.

All week I’m going to be posting live throughout the ACC tournament so if you want to know any updates or maybe my opinion on the outcomes of each of these games stay tuned to my blog.

Right now the first game has NC State playing Clemson. There’s a little over three minutes left in the first half and Clemson is winning with a score of 27 points. NC State has 23 points at the moment. I will write about how I think the game is going so far during halftime. You won’t want to miss it.

The Top Ten Suits of Marvel’s Superheroes

Every year since 2010 there has been at least one Marvel movie to grace the big screen and with each movie comes new superheroes with fresh, innovative suits that seem to get better than their predecessors. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe a.k.a MCU there are currently over twenty superheroes and each hero has either one suit or multiple versions of their iconic character. I’m going to list my ten favorite suits from the MCU.

Don’t Miss #17 Duke @#5 UNC Tonight!

It’s three days before the ACC Tournament and what better game to preview the tournament than the classic rivalry between UNC and Duke. Last time they met this regular season Duke won. Now am I a die hard UNC fan so the loss was painful. Especially that our team was and still is so much better than their roster this year. Tonight UNC will be playing in their beautiful hometown of Chapel Hill giving them a strong chance to redeem themselves after that upsetting loss a few weeks ago.

The game will air on ESPN at 8:OOpm and as you can see…am I excited! Hopefully they’ll easily win this match as their rank suggests. I’m cheering for you UNC! Go Tar Heels go!

The Top Ten Star Wars Villains

I love Star Wars for many reasons. I love the characters whether they’re significant or not, I love the vast array of interesting planets, and I love the stories throughout all of the movies (maybe not so much for Attack of the Clones but that’s another topic.) Throughout all of the Star Wars films there is always a villain or villains and these notorious bad guys are part of the reason Star Wars is so great today.

Take the Star Wars merchandise for example. When I walk through Target and I see something affiliated with Star Wars who is the person usually on the products…Kylo Ren. His hooded masked face and his red lightsaber are so easily recognizable you don’t even have to look twice to know that the product has something to do with Star Wars. That’s how memorable the villains are in this sci-fi goliath. Now of course some aren’t as prominent as Kylo Ren and that’s where my list of the top ten Star Wars villains begins.

10. Director Orson Krennic

orson-krennic_4c6477e2
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Director Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn) Ph: Jonathan Olley �Lucasfilm LFL 2016.

Director Krennic barely made my top ten for a very valid reason…he’s kind of lame. If weren’t for villains like the corny General Grievous or the posh Count Dooku he would definitely not be in this list. Let me explain my reasons a little further.

Krennic does possess a very beautiful outfit. That white cape of his is so illustrious and gorgeous it’s really the only reason why he’s on my list. If you think about his role in Rogue One he really didn’t do anything that special. Yes he ordered for Jyn Erso’s mother to be killed as well as Galen Erso’s assistant scientists but besides that he wasn’t very villainous. The real villain of the movie was Tarkin and that makes Krennic the white cape wearing lacky that he was. If you think about it, were he not to have that grand white outfit would he even be memorable…no! And that’s why he’s tenth on my list.

9. Captain Phasma

phasmas-blaster-rifle_59308fd3

Captain Phasma is an awesome villain for a couple of reasons. First of all she’s the first and only (for now) female villain in Star Wars. That already makes her very special. Then she’s the first stormtrooper with chrome armor and a cape making her only that much cooler. The only reason why she’s not higher in the list is because she, unfortunately, was in The Force Awakens for only about six minutes, and that’s being generous. I’m pretty sure after The Last Jedi she’ll be higher in the ranking.

8. General Hux

general-hux_078a3f89

General Hux probably wouldn’t have made my list if he hadn’t had that wrathful, thunderous speech about annihilating the New Republic before watching Starkiller Base shoot its ginormous red laser into space with a look of stone cold pride upon his face. That scene right there is why he’s number eight in my list of villains.

7. Snoke

snoke_72696f58.jpeg

Snoke is very mysterious. Every time I watch The Force Awakens I think to myself, “Who is Snoke?” He seems like somebody who’s been around for a while but what really makes him puzzling is the fact that Leia, Han, and probably Luke know who he is yet they didn’t try to stop him converting Ben Solo to the dark side. Who is this evil mastermind of the First Order who sits on a throne and tells Kylo Ren stuff? I don’t know and I can’t wait to find out. His mystique is what puts him at seventh place. If he’s as frightening as I think he has the potential to be he’ll definitely rise in the ranks of infamous villains.

6. Jango Fett

databank_jangofett_01_169_884cefab

Jango Fett is so cool there was no way I wasn’t putting him in my list. His silver armor, his jet pack, his two blasters, that’s everything someone needs to either be a tremendous hero or an astounding villain. The Attack of the Clones could’ve been so much better if it had just been about Obi-Wan and Jango Fett because they had the best scenes of the entire movie. Jango Fett was another one of those characters who died too early in the prequels. Why introduce a character that impressive only to kill him off. That’s like if Kylo Ren had actually died in The Force Awakens. That would’ve been a waste of character development. Jango Fett will always be one of the coolest villains in Star Wars despite the fact that he was so underused.

5. Grand Moff Tarkin

databank_tarkin_01_169_97d0a95c

Grand Moff Tarkin is one of the most conniving villains in Star Wars and after Rogue One his status as a merciless mastermind of the Empire has been reinforced. Tarkin is a very memorable villain for his stone cold visage and his determination to make the Empire the most powerful faction in the galaxy. He absolutely deserves the fourth spot in my list of Star Wars villains.

4. Emperor Palpatine

Emperor Palpatine is pure evil. I mean look at his picture. I shudder just looking at him. And his plan to wipe out the Jedi and take over the galaxy was so immaculately planned it’s terrible. He knew everything that was going to happen before it happened. The entire fate of the galaxy was wrapped around his little finger from when he became the Supreme Chancellor to when he was Emperor. If it wasn’t for Luke Skywalker’s resolve and Darth Vader’s sudden decision to become a good guy again the galaxy would’ve probably never torn itself from his tyrannical rule.

3. Darth Maul

Darth-Maul_632eb5af.jpeg

Darth Maul is definitely one of the most ingenious characters of all the Star Wars films. He’s still the only force wielder to have a lightsaber with two blades on each side of the hilt making him extra special in the long list of Sith and Jedi in the movies. His fighting style is rooted in a martial arts sort of vibe that’s really astounding and memorable. His look with the red and black face, yellow eyes, and the spikes spouting from his head give him a frightening appearance. He’s unfortunately another one of those grand characters whose use in the prequels was under utilized. And even though he’s a character in the Star Wars: Rebels show and made an appearance in Star Wars: The Clone Wars I don’t watch the cartoons so he’s still dead to me. It’s such a shame and really unfortunate.

2. Kylo Ren

kylo-ren_fa163069

Kylo Ren is beyond awesome. His outfit is frighteningly beautiful, his rugged lightsaber is unlike any other in the films, and his story is very, very intriguing. The only reason why he’s not number one is because he’s literally a Darth Vader wannabe. If it wasn’t for Darth Vader he wouldn’t be as cool as he is. I am very excited to see him in The Last Jedi. Maybe he’ll be even better than in The Force Awakens and if so he’ll definitely give Darth Vader a run for his money as the coolest villain. Until then he’ll remain a close second.

1. Darth Vader

darth-vader_6bda9114

And, unsurprisingly, Darth Vader is my favorite villain in Star Wars. His breath is one of the most iconic things in film history. I didn’t know how petrifying that sound can be until I watched Rogue One. That last scene with him was so mind blowing no other villain in Stat Wars so far can surpass him.

So these are my ten favorite villains in Star Wars. Maybe in the upcoming films there will be new baddies to rise in the ranks but until then this is my list. I hope you’ve enjoyed my post.
