I Finally Watched ‘Back to the Future’!

There are some iconic movies in history that I still haven’t seen; one of them being before today Back to the Future. I knew the film was essentially the best time travel movie of all time and I knew that it was iconic but I never felt the urge to watch it. But finally, I mustered up the determination to see why the heck this movie was so beloved and boy did I have a ball.

Movie Nights at Seventh & Tryon: Back to the Future - CLTure

Back to the Future is so much fun from its opening seconds as you try to figure out what you’re looking at before taking you on a rollercoaster ride that seems to never stop. I find myself laughing, cringing, screaming, cheering, and yes, the anxiety was real toward the end. And just when it seemed like everything was over the movie continued to be outrageously entertaining, sucking me into another fantastic adventure that will continue in the sequel.

I’ll watch the second film tomorrow but for now, I can honestly say I’m glad I saw this. It was really, really fun!

I’m giving this movie 4.5 out of 5 stars and 95 out of 100.

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

‘TENET’ At Home

Okay, so I have now seen Tenet a total of three times and I plan to watch it again today one more time just because. Christopher Nolan is an ambitious filmmaker but his latest project feels just a bit too out there.

I have tried my hardest to understand this plot and all of its machinations but what I have learned, thanks to someone who did all the hard work for me and then wrote they had discovered on Esquire (read the full post here) is that Tenet is like one of those unwinnable games of Solitaire.

If you don’t want to give up and start a new game you can undo over and over again, create every combination you can possibly think of, and still end up stuck somewhere. So basically, Tenet introduces the theory of the grandfather paradox; a theory in which people interested in time travel wonder what happens if you kill your grandfather does that mean you don’t exist anymore.

It’s an intriguing theory that has no answer, leading in an endless loop with no answer. So, that basically is the premise of Tenet. It’s clues lead to an endless paradox that has no answer but a bunch of hidden meanings within its context. So now that I know there is no right or wrong answer to this confusing pile of what-the-heck! my new mission is to understand just exactly what is going on with the whole inversion thing.

I am still having a hard time comprehending just exactly what the whole inversion thing and how it affects the stories of Neil, Sator, Kat, and The Protagonist. Once I’ve figured that out, I think I’ll enjoy this movie a whole lot more.

Despite the obvious confusion, Tenet still has its appeal. The cinematography and classiness of the film makes it stand out among Nolan’s movies who doesn’t often go for the fancier stories that ooze Bond-like charm. Plus, the action scenes are still spectacular, even at home. But once again, I still feel the same way about Tenet that I have since the beginning; it’s got charm and bluster but it’s incomprehensible storyline is inexcusable.

4/5 stars.

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

Throwback Friday: The Newest Trailer for ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Proves In a Subtle Way That There Will Be Time Travel

Today I watched Captain America: The Winter Soldier and a certain scene reminded me of a post I wrote a couple of months ago. It was the scene when Steve Rogers goes to visit Peggy (this scene made me super emotional by the way.) As I watched it, trying to hold back tears, I decided then and there to revisit that certain post I wrote in March for this Throwback Friday post. Enjoy!

Since the trailer for Avengers: Endgame dropped I have watched the trailer at least ten times. And with each viewing, my analysis of it has changed. While most trailers hide secrets in the background of important shots it seems that this trailer is hiding Easter eggs in plain sight.

Such as the mention of time travel. Now you’re probably saying to yourself, “Time travel? Who said anything about time travel in the trailer?”

Well, no one actually uttered the words time travel in the trailer but it is heavily implied through Peggy’s monologue through the first half of the trailer.

The Newest Trailer for ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Proves In a Subtle Way That There Will Be Time Travel

As you probably know it is the same words Peggy says to Captain America in The Winter Soldier when he went to see her: “The world is changed, and none of us can go back. All we can do is our best. And sometimes the best that we can do is to start over.”

There. Did you see it? That right there was the mention of time travel. If you still missed it let me pinpoint the exact moment that is practically pointing a gigantic red arrow at the fact that there will be time travel to some capacity in Endgame.

It’s when Peggy says, “And sometimes the best that we can do is to start over.”

Why, of all quotes in the MCU so far, would they put that quote in this trailer? For one reason. To show anyone who has an open eye (or ear in this case) that The Avengers will have to travel back in time to save the world or the galaxy in this case.

When I realized this Easter egg this morning I had to share it with you all because it was such an exciting discovery. Tomorrow I will write two more posts about the Endgame trailer that you definitely won’t want to miss.

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

Here Are 5 Things I Can’t Wait to See in ‘Avengers 4’

I know it’s early to already start talking about Avengers 4. I mean, we haven’t even been given the title yet. But as the months draw closer to the film’s imminent release and my excitement grows I can’t help but share with you all the things I can’t wait to see in the film. So, on that note, let me share with you what I’m excited to see in Avengers 4.

1. Steve and Tony’s Reunion

steveandtonysecretsrevealed

The last time Steve Rogers and Tony Stark were in the same room it wasn’t pretty. After Tony discovered Steve had kept the awful truth of Tony’s parents’ death a secret from him he felt that he was betrayed and severed all friendly ties with his fellow Avenger, Captain America. With their friendship fractured Tony was totally prepared to never speak to or see Steve Rogers ever again but with the threat of Thanos upon Earth he was forced to confront the reality that he may need the patriotic hero’s help once more.

Unfortunately, we didn’t get to see that reunion in Avengers: Infinity War but that means when they finally do see each other again in Avengers 4 it’s going to be that much more heartfelt. Especially after the devastating events of the Infinity Snap Tony will probably be relieved to see that Steve didn’t disintegrate. I’m predicting many sniffles in the movie theaters during that heartwarming reunion.
