My Top 20 Posters of the Last Decade: Part One

Posters are some of my favorite things in the world. They make a film or tv show look so cool through marketing alone and there are twenty posters that I find simply awesome. Enjoy!

20. A Riddle for The Batman

Part of the reason why I am actually excited for The Batman tomorrow is that it has had some interesting posters. And this one in particular, simplistic yet bold, pits the antagonist versus the protagonist in a truly fascinating way. What a way to utilize The Riddler’s iconic question mark.

19. Meet Disney’s Newest Heroine, Raya

Before I ever saw a teaser for Raya and the Last Dragon I knew I was intrigued about the film simply because of the film’s title. A Disney movie about dragons? Sign me up! But when this first poster dropped, depicting a mysterious, confident warrior, I was instantly entranced. Sure enough, my gut feeling was correct. This was undoubtedly my favorite animated movie of 2021 and one of my favorite animated films in the last few years.

18. A Poster to Remember

I remember when I saw this poster for the first time. I saw it in a movie theater and as I stared at it, trying to decipher the letters that made up the film’s title, I was utterly transfixed by its striking beauty. Still to this day, I haven’t seen a better poster for a sci-fi film than this one. It’s telling a story, a powerful one at that, and it’s beyond impressive.

17. The Guardians of the Galaxy

James Gunn knew exactly what he was doing when he made this movie, all the way down to the very marketing of the film itself. This poster is beautiful, from its color to its composition, everything about this poster makes me smile whenever I see it.

16. Captain Marvel Shines

Captain Marvel may have not been one of the best MCU movies but its marketing was stellar. I remember the day this poster came out. I couldn’t stop gawking at it because it was that extraordinarily beautiful. Brie Larson looks utterly powerful in this showstopper of a poster, with the golden beam of light bouncing off of her suit so impressively. Even now as I write this post, I can’t help marveling (pun totally intended) at this stunning poster. It’s impeccable.

So, those are the first five posters. Next stop, 15-11. I’m so excited!

The Ten Best Movies in the Last Decade

Great movies, they’re hard to find. Yes, there are plenty of good movies that pop up through the years but a GREAT movie that keeps on giving for years to come…that’s hard to find. I know I probably should’ve done this post last year at the beginning of this decade but oh what the heck. I’m doing it now.

Here’s my list of the ten best movies in the last decade. Enjoy!

Inception (2010)

The Untold Truth Of Inception

In 2010, two years after Christopher Nolan’s incredible newest cinematic masterpiece, The Dark Knight, he returned with a mind-bending sci-fi action-thriller that took imagination to a whole other level.

With an all-star cast featuring Leonardo Dicaprio, Marion Cotillard, Tom Hardy, Ken Watanabe, Cillian Murphy, and more, Inception found the perfect balance between mindnumbingly trippy and incredibly entertaining, resulting in one of the greatest movies of all time.

Interstellar (2014)

The Surprising Science Behind The Movie 'Interstellar'

It’s honestly no surprise that Nolan would have two entries on this list considering that’s he one of the best filmmakers of all time. Interstellar would be the first Nolan film I would ever see in theaters (in IMAX by the way) and it was an experience I’ll never forget.

Interstellar is the epitome of a space-adventure movie while managing to infuse so much heart into the story that you’ll be an emotional wreck halfway into the film. And if you’re not crying your eyes halfway into the movie you definitely will be destroyed emotionally at the end.

Interstellar is honestly the best science-fiction film since 1968’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.

My Favorite Father Figures in Entertainment

It’s Father’s Day and that means it’s time to look at some of the greatest father figures in cinema. Enjoy!

Scott Lang a.k.a Ant-Man

There aren’t a lot of fathers in the MCU but the most prominent and consistent father/child relationship is Scott and Cassie Lang. Scott cherishes his daughter more than anything in the world and his daughter wants to be just like her dad. It’s an ultra-cute dynamic that has continued over the course of three movies (Ant-Man, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and Avengers: Endgame.)

Now, it’s very likely that the next Ant-Man film will see our first superhero father/daughter team-up which is truly an exciting prospect!

Where Does ‘TENET’ Rank Among the Christopher Nolan Movies I’ve Seen?

I can proudly say that I have seen every major Christopher Nolan movie and each film has been one to remember. From his all-time great Batman trilogy to what I feel is, next to 2001: A Space Odyssey, the greatest space movie of all time, Interstellar, his movies are impactful and will leave you thinking about them long after seeing them.

TENET is no exception. It’s been nearly a week since I watched his latest mind-boggling feat in cinema and as I see tv spots of Nolan’s newest excuse to go to the movies I can’t help feeling a swell of happiness knowing that I was able to witness the incredible film in a movie theater.

But, despite my enjoyment of the movie, where do I rank it among Nolan’s films? Let’s find out, shall we?

1. The Dark Knight

This is what I would call literal perfection. His first movie featuring the dark knight was the best Batman film ever made with an origin story that felt dark, grounded, gritty, and a far-cry better than Batman from 1989.

His second film in the trilogy would feature a story that was not only brilliant developed but also boded the greatest comic book movie villain onscreen appearance of all time. Heath Ledger’s Joker was so haunting and downright unforgettable that the actor would receive a posthumous Oscar for his role, and deservedly so.

I cannot get enough of this movie.

Counting Down My 20 Favorite Trailers: #2-‘Interstellar’

Interstellar was the first Christopher Nolan movie I had ever seen in the movie theaters. It was because of this trailer I’m about to show you that my family and I went to see it on a beautiful but late Thanksgiving night six years ago. So, with no further delay, here’s the trailer.

Perfection is the word I will use for this trailer and here’s why I choose such a sacred word in the English language.

  1. 98% of the trailer consists of shots and moments from the first hour and twenty minutes of the movie. Only two shots are shown from the second half of the film and those shots refrain from any spoilers whatsoever, leaving viewers with a chance to be truly surprised going into the film.
  2. The tone is somber but laced with hope due to a powerful combination of emotion and music that leaves one on the verge of tears and with chills over their entire body. I mean, that music is insane! In IMAX, it injects itself into your very soul and left me on more than one occasion absolutely determined to see this movie. I’m glad my family and I actually did go see it, for it is undoubtedly one of the best sci-fi movies I have ever seen.

This trailer leaves much for the imagination but it doesn’t hold back from providing plenty of awesomeness along the way.

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

I’ve seen a lot of children’s movies in my time and there are quite a few that I have grown to love but I have never seen a children’s film as perfectly constructed as this one in my life.

I watched this movie a long time ago in 2010 but I had completely forgotten nearly everything about the film. One day I was watching Freeform and when it came on I decided to watch it for only the second time in my life. Oh my goodness, I didn’t know what I was getting myself into.

This movie had me crying so many times I couldn’t believe it. I was crying at the beginning, I was weeping in the middle, and I was utterly balling at the end. This is easily the best children’s movie I have ever watched by a landslide.
