Henry Cavill Should Be the Next James Bond

After the last James Bond film comes out featuring Daniel Craig a new James Bond will have to be crowned and there’s been a lot of debate on who should play the iconic character. Some think Tom Hiddleston, who you may know for his role as the God of Mischief, Loki, should be the new James Bond. Rumors began circling that Idris Elba would take the role and become the first black James Bond. Those rumors have recently, however, been debunked. And then there are, of course, other British-born actors that could take the role but I think the next man to play the iconic James Bond should be Superman himself, Henry Cavill, and this is why.

1. He’s Handsome

The first aspect that every James Bond needs to have is the looks. Well, Henry Cavill definitely has those in abundance so that’s not going to be a problem. 🙂

Who Won The Summer?

The season of summer isn’t officially over yet but the exciting blockbuster season has unfortunately passed. And wasn’t this quite the summer? We had two Marvel movies, a Star Wars film, another terrifying Jurassic flick, the return of a Pixar classic, and a thrilling Mission: Impossible movie. This was quite the busy blockbuster season and so today I’m going to share with you my ranking of these films from worst to best. Enjoy!

6. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

jurassicworldfallenkingdom

When I saw Jurassic Park for the first time five years ago I didn’t realize how incredible it was going to be. Since then I’ve become a Jurassic fan. I’ve seen every film, I’ve watched Jurassic Park a number of times, I’ve grown to enjoy Jurassic World at home, and I actually like Jurassic Park: The Lost World.

When it was announced that Jurassic World would be getting a sequel I couldn’t wait to see what it would be about. The first film in this new trilogy seemed pretty enjoyable so there was no way the sequel could be that bad. Wrong!

I walked away from that film utterly disappointed for a number of reasons.

  1. Every scene in the movie was something I had seen in a commercial or trailer so I knew what was going to happen.
  2. The story wasn’t enticing at all. Seeing Chris Pratt and Bryce-Dallas Howard trapped in a mansion overrun with dinosaurs is not as exciting as it sounds.
  3. There weren’t any stakes. I’m still waiting to see a Jurassic film that has some serious stakes connected to it. And even with the dinosaurs ( MAJOR SPOILER ALERT AHEAD!) getting released onto the North American continent at the end the movie it still didn’t feel dire in the slightest.

Who knows. Maybe the final film in the trilogy will be the best Jurassic movie ever made but it is clearly my least favorite blockbuster this year.

Ranking the ‘Mission: Impossible’ Films from Worst to Best

I saw Mission: Impossible-Fallout a week ago and I can tell you, it’s still blowing my mind. I’ve seen a LOT of action movies but I’ve never seen an action film quite like this before. It was astounding to watch and an absolute treat. But this doesn’t dissuade from the other Mission: Impossible movies’ awesomeness. For over two decades Tom Cruise has taken the character, Ethan Hunt, to new locations, new heights (literally,) and new insane obstacles that seem, well, impossible to complete. And yet Ethan Hunt still finds ways to save the world, even if it comes at the last. Possible. Second. It’s the best!

But how do these films rank in this action-packed franchise? That’s what I’m here to share with you. Enjoy!

Mission: Impossible II

I watched Mission: Impossible II a few years ago and while it did possess one of Tom Cruise’s most jaw-dropping stunts in the franchise the movie was really, really bad. There was WAY too much slow-motion and a little bit too much smooching for my liking. It was so bad in fact that I’m kind of surprised they made a third Mission: Impossible film…but I’m glad they did. 🙂

‘Mission: Impossible-Fallout’ Is Undoubtedly The Best Action Movie Ever Made

This past Sunday I finally got the chance to see Mission: Impossible-Fallout and I was beyond excited. The critics were claiming it to be one of the greatest action movies ever made and, surprisingly, the Rotten Tomatoes score was gradually climbing over the past week. I had to see what all the praise was about. I can honestly tell you it’s true. Mission: Impossible-Fallout, in my humble opinion, is the greatest action movie that has ever hit the big screen.

Literally from beginning to end this film delivers thrills and suspenseful moments left and right while still being able to provide an understandable and compelling story. Think of all of the great action movies you’ve ever seen (SpeedMad Max: Fury RoadDie Hard, and The Fugitive, just to name a few.) This movie is better than all of them combined!

I mean this movie has edge-of-your-seat, heart pounding, chill-inducing, giddy-laughter creating, eye-widening, I-can’t believe-this-movie-is-this-good kind of action in it.

This Is a Super Exciting Movie Week!

This movie summer season has been jam packed with exciting blockbusters from Avengers: Infinity War and Solo: A Star Wars Story to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and Ant-Man and the Wasp. Now Mission: Impossible-Fallout is set to hit theaters tomorrow! and I honestly couldn’t be more ecstatic. I am a huge Mission: Impossible fan ever since I saw Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol for the first time. I mean, watching Tom Cruise climb the Burj Khalifa skyscraper in Dubai was downright breathtaking.

Now critics are saying this is the best Mission: Impossible movie yet and are also claiming it to be one of the best action movies ever made! Oh my goodness, I’m practically bursting at the seams with excitement for this film.

The New Trailer for ‘Mission: Impossible-Fallout’ Promises Action, Action, and More Action

Every few years there’s a new Mission: Impossible movie to enjoy and this summer’s sixth entry into the spy thriller franchise looks to be the most action-packed installment yet. Here’s the trailer.

I saw Mission: Impossible-Rogue Nation in the movie theaters three years ago and it was positively awesome. This film seems to have taken that sense of exhilarating action to the next level as this trailer contains nonstop action throughout its two minute and thirty-three second run time and that is super exciting. It’s summer time and that means it’s blockbuster season and who doesn’t love thrilling blockbusters? I know I do.

I also like that this trailer provided a better insight into the new characters such as Henry Cavill’s CIA agent, August Walker, who is supposedly the main villain in this film. (Ha! That evil Superman theory is going to come true after all. Lol.)

And it seems that the stakes are kicked up yet another notch as Ethan Hunt’s arch nemesis, Solomon Lane, returns to enact his revenge. *rubbing my hands* Exciting.

All in all, this was a great trailer and now I’m beyond excited to see this film. Especially in IMAX. It’s going to be 100% amazing.

Here’s the official poster for the movie and I love it. It perfectly fits the tone of the movie and it’s just a well configured layout of a poster. It actually may be my favorite poster of the franchise so far which is definitely a good sign for the movie. Did I mention I can’t wait to see this film? 🙂

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

Here Are My Favorite Trailers from Super Bowl LII

One of the reasons why I was so excited to see the Super Bowl was for the trailers. I’m, as you can tell from my blog, a huge movie lover and so to be able to see so many fabulous movie trailers in one night is a blast for me. Today I’m going to share with you all of the trailers from the Super Bowl that managed to blow my mind. Enjoy!

Skyscraper

I’m not a big fan of movies with Dwayne Johnson in them. They’re usually super corny and films that I just don’t want to see but I have to say, this one interested me a little bit. The story is intriguing and, if executed right, could be really enjoyable. I would totally go see this if I’m having a boring day and I just want to see an action flick.

A Quiet Place

The first time I saw the trailer for this movie was during Justice League and it frightened the mess out of me. The theater was so densely quiet and I was trying to figure out what was going on. I am not a horror film fan whatsoever. I mean I used to cry at Michael Jackson’s Thriller when I was a young child for crying out loud, that’s how much I don’t like scary stuff, but this movie’s plot is so terrifyingly interesting I want to see it.

What is it that they have to stay quiet about? What is going on? I like that the trailers are providing enough tantalizing imagery while keeping the secret of what the horrific villain, or villains will be. That’s great marketing because the only way I’m going to find out who it is their hiding from is if I go see it in the movies. Smart move, Paramount, smart move.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

This trailer had me immediately engaged due to its horrifying beginning. I mean that’s the worst way to wake up right? *shudder* Then as the trailer goes along it slightly veers away from that horror aspect that the trailer began with but it still had me engaged.

What this trailer conveyed to me was that the creators behind the Jurassic Park franchise have realized we, as viewers, don’t exactly care about a story. We want dinosaurs! The more and more dinosaurs you have the more enjoyable the film will be for everyone watching the movie in IMAX and this Jurassic World movie is no exception. They’re going to make sure that they have you watching the movie afraid at every turn, at every monstrous growl rumbling through the theater, and at every open dinosaur maw filled with racks of knife-sharp teeth about to eat someone. I appreciate that because that’s the only reason why I enjoyed the last one. It was a monster movie and I enjoyed every bit of the screaming humans and roaring dinosaurs rattling my brain in that IMAX theater andI know I’m going to have a great time again watching more screaming humans and more roaring dinosaurs in this sequel. 🙂
