Will Rey have a double bladed lightsaber? We’ll wait and see. Maybe a Jedi version of the really bad Sith lord from Episode 1.

The fast paced style of lightsaber combat from episode one can make it’s way to the big screen once again. Some viewers of Episode Seven had different ideas on the fight between Kylo Ren and Rey.

The next steps for the Star Wars Universe are another great story and larger questions answered.

Final Batman vs. Superman Trailer Sparks Movie Predictions

The final Batman vs. Superman Movie trailer released today gives long awaited fans the trailer they needed. Zack Snyder’s interpretation of the DC Comics world maybe exactly what viewers expect.

Dj7OV3h - ImgurNew footage gives us an insight on what may have changed and what questions are still left for viewers to solve.

 

We see an older Alfred Pennyworth played by legendary actor Jeremy Irons remotely guiding the Bat-Wing to a old factory filled with armed men. Batman, played by Ben Affleck, jumps through the second floor window to better set the element of surprise to the armed foes on the third floor. Batman comes crashing through from below our henchmen and unleashes a fury of martial arts to clear the room. His execution however isn’t perfect as he begins to say “I’m getting slow at my old age Alfred”.

A scene much similar to this introduction is set in Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns when Bruce Wayne decides to take the mantle of Batman again and finds himself in an abandoned house with armed bank robbers. This reveals the possibility of a mature Batman in Snyder’s film and an experienced Bruce Wayne.

Unlike previous trailers, this final sneak peak  focuses on the Characters themselves rather than their beliefs.

Wonder Woman demonstrates her strength by leaping head first into fire and revealing herself to the world’s greatest detective Bruce Wayne. Actress Gal Gadot wares a luxurious white dress in a scene with Ben Affleck and then battles a mysterious enemy in modern amazonian armor. These two legendary actors suit up in their roles and display great feats of strength.

The now well known Henry Cavill portrays a conflicted Superman crossed between people who welcome or fear his power. His silence in the final trailer leads to further questions on why Superman seeks to eliminate Batman’s vigilante justice.

Further reference to Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight series reveals instances of familiarity and possible foreshadowing. A government inspired Superman is set an cold war era in fear of nuclear destruction. A nuclear missile sent to the island of Malta Maltese is stopped by Superman, ultimately draining him of his powers and blocking the bright yellow sun. Besides his armor, this incident might explain why Batman can block Superman’s punch in the trailer.

Possibilities of a similar incident is revealed in the short scene of Superman surrounded by what appears to be indigenous people. Viewers wonder; could a fearful government send superman to handle scenarios beyond the white house? and are they always clean jobs?

Jessie Eisenberg recreates the villainous Lex Luthor who is a known rival to Superman. His intentions are ultimately to see both Superhero legends battle for social superiority, but Lex’s superior intellect may sway all viewers.

The overall theme that is sensed with the great direction of Snyder includes originality vs modernization. As some viewers recall (Spoiler Alert until next Paragraph) Superman killed General Zod to save some trapped citizens during an destructive super power battle.

Batman’s notorious one moral rule of not killing anyone and Superman’s incident (refer to spoiler if you want to know) can be the peek conflict between these characters. Not everyone is accustomed to the idea of super heroes killing even if it is necessary. The moral lines of Heroes is the greater conflict of the film, but how these issues are overcome is worth the wait.

Netflix Suggestions for your lonesome Valentines Day

Valentine’s day is almost over and, for most people, their night will consist of Netflix without the chill. For the best night of self indulging and reminiscing, watch the following two Netflix movies.

Lila and Eve
This suspenseful tale of vengeance for a grieving mother is perfect for an emotional thrill. When our mother finds the perfect mentor at a women’s healing center, she beings to search for answers on her son’s murder. Fighting crime on the dirty streets along with her inner demons makes for a great action drama film.

Like Sunday like Rain
A touching tale of a brilliant boy and young woman will fiddle at the heart strings and get the mind flowing in symbolism. After a bad break up and getting fired from her job, Elanor becomes an in home nanny for the rich but emotionally separated boy, Reggie. The brief month spent together allows them to learn more about each other and themselves. Reggie’s diverse knowledge and Elanor’s interpersonal skills makes each interacting meaningful.

Tell me what you thought! Is it 4 star worthy? Comment below

Netflix Suggestion : Turbo Kid

[subscribe2]

image

If you want to be thrown into the apocalyptic world of 1997 then Turbo Kid is the right movie for you. This retro themed survival story introduces us to a young boy raised in the mist of chaos. Robots and Nuclear warfare ended civil life on earth and left only a few scraps of people alive. Running across a new girl and some dangerous people sets up our Kid to discover his true calling. To be a superhero.

This movie released in 2015 but has Netflix worthy qualities. You might laugh, cry, jump for joy, or just enjoy the director’s take on the wasteland. Either way, It’s a lot better than taking a risk on three star movies with Nicholas Cage (No offense Cage, mucho respeto).

See for yourself and leave some comments! I hope to continue suggesting more movies as soon as i figure out how to make gifs and create slideshows.

First CT101 Course w/ Online Journalism

This Communications Technology course should aid in creating a proficient website and accessing skills to continue online work. Also enrolling in an Online Journalism course allows for multiple source ideas and blog postings. Most news websites if you take a look don’t have an appealing format for the everyday reader. In my Journalism course, we discussed the format of the http://www.huffingtonpost.com/ and determined it to be a mess of links. Of course they are a reliable source for news, but we must be able to analyze well known websites and learn from all aspects. I want to learn how to add slide shows and gifs to articles or other writings posted onto my website. Those skills will really help in the future; beyond this course.
