My Fun Weekly Twitter Poll Has Gone Live!

Another seven days have gone by and that means it’s time for another weekly Twitter poll. Today I’m straying from the topic of Star Wars and focusing on another, more pressing subject; the Avengers: Endgame trailer. The highly-anticipated teaser has already broken records, becoming the first film to ever get 289 million! views in a single day. And so, because it was such a hit last Friday I couldn’t help but make it the subject of my weekly Twitter poll. Here’s the tweet.

Feel free to help contribute to the conversation if you’d like. Of course, I can’t vote (because I made the poll) but if I could I would vote Kind of Excited. The trailer had its exciting moments but overall it was a lot less impressive than I’d imagine it to be.

And if you need to be reminded about the trailer here it is.

I thank you for reading (and potentially contributing) and I hope you have a beautiful day.

Who’s Your Favorite Marvel Hero?

One of my first segments of Who’s Your Favorite was Who’s Your Favorite Marvel Heroine? Well, it’s time for the male heroes’ turn and there are many of them. There are a wizard and a radioactive spider-ling. An Iron Suit-wearing-billionaire and a patriotic super soldier. A King with a catsuit of vibranium and a God of thunder. The list goes on and on. And that’s why they’re the topic of this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? Enjoy.

Doctor Strange

Doctor Stephen Strange wasn’t the exact superhero type. He was obnoxious, self-centered, and egotistical. Those don’t exactly seem like the traits of an Avenger. But after losing the function of his hands in a horrendous car accident he would become one of the greatest heroes in the world.

War Machine

Colonel Rhodes is a soldier and so it’s no surprise that he would do anything in his power to protect those from harm. Even after a frightening injury he still was willing to suit up and face Thanos’s forces knowing there could be lethal consequences.

Iron Man, Captain America, or Thor: Who Has the Best Trilogy?

There are twenty movies in the MCU so far but there are only three trilogies which belong to some of the franchise’s most important characters; Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor. Their movies have spanned eight years and debuted tons of different characters that have become prominent inclusions to the overall story but which trilogy is the most fun to watch? Well, that’s what I’m here to share with you all. Enjoy!

The Iron Man Trilogy

Iron Man was the first hero to debut in the MCU and his standalone films have been fun to watch. Iron Man is still heralded as one of the best superhero movies ever made but the other two haven’t had the same critical acclaim. Now, personally, my favorite film of the trilogy is Iron Man 2 for its fun story and great characters. Iron Man 3, however, feels a bit disjointed from the overall story.

At first it seems like a great movie as it features Tony’s PTSD but that storyline is forgotten in other films following Iron Man 3. And the end of Iron Man 3 makes it feel like Tony Stark’s story is finished and yet he shows up later on in Age of Ultron. It’s all so confusing.

I Want To See Another Thor Movie

Thor. Oh, the mighty Thor. At one time he was my least favorite Avenger. He was always too serious. He never cracked a joke. He never fit in right with the team. And he was made out to be epic but he felt the exact opposite for me.

I guess Taika Waititi realized that no, Thor isn’t exactly epic, but he’s really funny and actually has a great personality behind that austere facade. And so, he revamped the God of Thunder in Thor: Ragnarok and my view of Thor has been changed ever since.

Now when I see Thor he makes me smile because he is all kinds of awesome. He’s hilarious, heroic, powerful, cool, etc. I’ve love Thor.

Thor is so great in fact that I would be kind of sad if the Russo Brothers killed him off in Avengers 4. I get it, we’re going to see some of these classic Avengers perish in this next film but Thor’s so cool now. I’d be a shame to get rid of him just when he became really awesome.

And besides, I’d LOVE to see at least one more Marvel film with Taika Waititi as the director featuring another wild adventure with yours truly; Thor. It could be so much fun. It could once again star Tessa Thompson as his newfound Asgardian buddy, Valkyrie. Maybe Bruce Banner could come along again for the ride. And then maybe we could see some other new characters that could make the movie a complete blast.

I’m not familiar at all with the Thor comics so I don’t know which new villains he could face but I’m sure it could be really cool.

Like I said before, Thor is awesome, and I definitely think he needs at least one more film. What do you think? Should Thor return for another movie or should his story end in Avengers 4? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

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

 

The Five Best Moments in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

For a long while I couldn’t figure out which moments in Avengers: Infinity War I loved the most because there are so many incredibly AWESOME parts in this movie that it’s hard to decide. But after seeing this film over ten times now I feel that I finally have distinguished the moments that make the happiest in this superb superhero flick. So, of course, I’m here to share them with you. Enjoy!

1. Iron Man vs. Thanos

Tony Stark has feared the arrival of Thanos for years. He’s gone through PTSD after the Battle of New York, he made Ultron because he wanted to create a defense mechanism that would help protect the world from Thanos’s eventual arrival, and finally, in Infinity War, these two characters that have known of each other from across the cosmos have themselves a one-on-one duel. It’s awesome!

Iron Man gets in quite a few licks with that incredible nanotech suit of his but at the end of the day Thanos is truly the most powerful villain in the universe and that becomes quickly obvious as he defeats Tony. This scene makes me so happy every time I watch it because to see these two goliaths on opposite sides fight each other is pretty cool indeed.

Ranking the Marvel Trailers From Worst to Best; Part 1

There have been twenty movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far but at one time all we knew of these films were their exciting or somewhat disappointing trailers. Trailers tell you everything about a movie’s quality and that’s why I’m ranking them. But because there are, well, twenty trailers to rank I’m breaking it up into a two-day series. Enjoy!

20. The Incredible Hulk

Like The Incredible Hulk this is clearly the worst trailer of them all. Maybe I’m being a little biased because I know the movie isn’t that good but still, it’s kind of lame. It could’ve been a good movie but unfortunately it isn’t.

19. Captain America: The First Avenger

Captain America: The First Avenger is a boring origin story, pure and simple. The story is well told but the movie is poorly made. In the hands of the Russo Brothers it might have been a completely different film but in those days Marvel hadn’t entirely gotten their footing yet. It definitely is #19 in my opinion.

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ At Home

I haven’t seen Avengers: Infinity War in months so imagine my excitement when I bought and watched it last night in the comfort of my house. It’s always interesting watching movies for the first at home on the small screen because it’s different than watching the film in a giant, loud movie theater. The sound may not be as good or the CGI might look terrible. Or maybe the movie isn’t as good as you remembered it to be because there isn’t any IMAX to make the film decent.

Well, I can tell you that it was an amazing experience watching it at home. For months I have watched the Marvel movies such as Black PantherCaptain America: Civil WarThor: Ragnarok, and Doctor Strange with the excitement that these individual stories all leads to Infinity War. I watched Ant-Man and the Wasp several weeks ago and its constant levity helped tone down that ultra serious tone Infinity War had blanketed over the entire series. But after seeing it again last night I realized just how incredible Infinity War is.
