The Avengers 2012 - Movie Review (Marvel Reviews)The Avengers, starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Clark Gregg, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Tom Hiddleston, and Stellan SkarsgÄrd and it was directed by Joss Whedon and it's about The god of mischief Loki, he has come down to earth wanting to rule mankind by bringing his army and the Avengers come together to fight against that.



I was really worried about so many characters, so many huge larger-than-life characters in one movie, can they make the story cohesive? can they make the scene like a whole movie? not just a whole bunch of different movies just mashed into one? yes they really can I adored this movie, I was so pleased with it, I could easily geek out right now and say this movie was so awesome, the action was so cool, the special effects and everything were great, and what makes this movie so good are the characters they are so fleshed out, each char…

Captain America is about this little guy with a big heart is named Steve Rogers, he's played by Chris Evans, he wants to be in the army but he's a little shrimpy guy and no one really believes in him except a few people, he really just wants to fight for his country and everything, he ends up getting signed up for this program, its kind of a guinea pig for this new idea where he gets pumped filled with this chemical stuff and becomes a super soldier, through various ways he becomes known as Captain America and he has to fight against evil and this villain Red Skull played by Hugo Weaving.
This film lot of fun with Captain America, my thought is it was a great superhero film,  one of the things is reall…

Dark Season 3 | Things You Might Have Missed & Easter Eggs (Part 2)

Image
I've been rewatching the final season to add to my notes, and today I have 33 details that you might have missed. I think 33 is the right number, but it's a big number, so I want to jump right in, this will be a 2 part article.  Click here for part 1



number 16 is one that goes back even before 1888, we learn about the origin of the gold watch, several people asked why'd the blind man, who turns out to be Gustav Tannhaus, had the watch in the scene where he's killed by the Unknown? the answer is that the watch was passed down from his father, Heinrich Tannhaus, who originally bought it for his wife who was named Charlotte, she died and this led to the formation of Sic Mundus because Heinrich wanted to learn about time travel to try to go back and save her life. the name Charlotte and the idea of time traveling to save a departed loved one will continue on in the Tannhaus family throughout the generations. 
number 17 is about Magnus, when he's in front of the cave in t…

Dark Season 3 | Things You Might Have Missed & Easter Eggs (Part 1)

Image
I've been rewatching the final season to add to my notes, and today I have 33 details that you might have missed. I think 33 is the right number, but it's a big number, so I want to jump right in, this will be a 2 part article.

Number 1 is that everything's mirrored in alt Martha's world, I've seen a lot of people asking about why the scratch on Martha's cheek moved from side to side in different scenes, the answer is that the creators use this as a mark to indicate which world we're in, it's not just that either everything is mirrored including the interiors of the homes and the exterior of places like the cave, this leads to believe that they essentially flipped the shots after filming them, and what's crazy about that is they would have to dress the sets in reverse, think about this shot with Magnus and Martha and how all the print on the stuff in the background and his tattoos would have to be reversed to achieve the effect, in the origin world t…

Greyhound - Movie Review (Apple TV Plus)

Image
Greyhound was directed by Aaron Schneider and stars Tom Hanks and it's on Apple TV Plus, from a screenplay that Tom Hanks wrote early in World War two and experienced US Navy captain must lead an allied convoy being stalked by Nazi u-boat wolf packs.

This film was initially pushed back and then eventually because of the pandemic, it is now being dropped on Apple TV plus, Hanks wrote the script as I said, the last time he wrote a movie was Larry Crowne a film he also directed, he also wrote and directed That Thing You Do, so this is not the first time he's ever written a screenplay but this is the first time he's written a screenplay that he did not direct, this is also the first time that Hanks has ever tackled writing a film of this nature, his previous two films were very light-hearted movies whereas this is more of a somber film about the horrors of war, unfortunately, nothing about this movie really connects, the characterization being one of the weakest elements, there…

Dark | Netflix Season 3 - How Did Claudia Know? | Ending Theory

Image
Through the lens of the limited understanding of the theoretical physics of time travel and quantum mechanics, The are three questions to be asked about Claudia 1. How did she know about the origin world? 2. How was she able to set things in motion to change the outcome in Adam and Eva's worlds? And finally, how could Jonas and Martha stop the car crash in the origin world if that's what led to their existence in the first place? 


The answer to the first question, how did Claudia know about the origin world is something I feel pretty confident about, Claudia's motivation has been presented as wanting to save her daughter Regina who gets cancer in Adam and Eva's worlds, The oldest version of Claudia has been a mysterious character because prior to season 3 we didn't know what she was really trying to do, and what made her that way in the 33 years of traveling she did after surviving the apocalypse in the bunker, Season 3 provided those answers, she is in fact trying …

Project Power - Movie Review (Netflix 2020)

Image
Project Power is a new Netflix film starring Jamie Foxx, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Dominique Fishback and it's about a pill that gives its users unpredictable superpowers for five minutes hits the streets of New Orleans, a teenage dealer and a local cop must team with an ex-soldier to take down the group responsible for its creation.

The spec script for this movie originally just called Power went through a bidding war and you can understand why, a pill that gives you superpowers for five minutes when you swallow it, you don't really know what your superpower is going to be, you could burst into flames, you could blow up, you have no idea, you could become impervious to bullets, it could be anything which seems like it could be unlimited potential for a really exciting action film set in a world with unlimited possibilities, unfortunately despite that great idea this film takes that idea and puts it in the most generic plot ever.  Jamie Foxx is searching for the corporation tha…

Dark Season 3 Ending Explained | Dark Netflix Review

Image
This is your spoiler warning, If you haven't finished watching the entire Dark series this video won't be for you and with that out of the way let's get into it. 





So, at the end of episode 7, Adam is basically all of us, He thought he had it figured out but it turns out he was wrong, His plan to wipe out the world involves destroying alt Martha who is carrying their unborn child and the god particle in one go, Adam believes their child must be the origin of the knot because it is the origin of the time-traveller family tree, He uses the force of both apocalypses through the portal to destroy her, It's almost comical as he closes his eyes and waits there to cease to exist, He holds them closed for a bit, takes a breath, and then nope, nothing, he's still alive and his face resembles what mine probably looked like through most of the middle of this season, Claudia then arrives to explain what happened, She tells Adam that Eva used something called quantum entanglement…
