Thor (Chris Hemsworth) returns to Asgard to find his brother, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), up to his same mischief and quickly dispatches him before dragging him along to find their father, Odin (Anthony Hopkins). With a little help from Earth’s new Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), they manage to find him–ailing. With his last words he tells them of their sister, The Goddess of Death, Hela (Cate Blanchett)! Unlike Thor or Loki who are satiated with Earth and Asgard, respectively. Our Thunderer has to enlist the unlikely help of The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), friends, and a surprising new ally to avoid Ragnarok and save his people.

Cate Blanchett as “Hela”

This film is definitely action-packed! Thor took on some major villains in Hela and Surtur, and his rival, The Hulk. With the former it’s always the god of thunder going up against other forces of nature; in the case death and destruction! It is honestly a foreshadowing of the even more powerful villain he will face in Avengers: Infinity WarThanos! You will love Cate Blanchett as Hela, she screams Cruella De Ville meets all-powerful goddess. Surprisingly, the film was really funny! You will love the one liners, reads, and banter of all the characters. You just be sure to catch it in theaters everywhere today–and stay for two additional scenes post-credit! Let us know what you think of the film afterwards by sounding off in the comments’ section below!

Movie Trailer

[VIDEO] “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom| Watch the Final Trailer!

It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment.  Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles.

When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event.  Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission.  Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.

With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful series in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before.  Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

Stars Pratt and Howard return alongside executive producers Steven Spielberg and Colin Trevorrow for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.  They are joined by co-stars James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Justice Smith, Geraldine Chaplin, Daniella Pineda, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall and Isabella Sermon, while BD Wong and Jeff Goldblum reprise their roles.

This final trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is EVERYTHING! We surmise that this threat that could harm the planet as a whole is none other than a super volcano! Super volcanoes are large volcanoes that if they should erupt could put enough soot and ash in the atmosphere that the Sun would be blocked out for years! I guess we will have to see how Owen and Claire are going to fix/solve this dilemma! Happy viewing!

Justice is “Blindspotting!” Daveed Diggs (@DaveedDigggs) Tackles Police Brutality in New Film!

The American dream is a notion–or well promise–to all people within in our country of peace, safety, justice and most of all equality. However, if you are a Black Man there are time and situations when that notion might as well be a fantasy. Hamilton star Daveed Diggs definitely has this understand down to science as he tackles police brutality and injustice in his new film, Blindspotting!

Blindspotting centers on Collin (Daveed Diggs), an ex-con adjusting to life outside of prison–and with limited freedom–thanks to probation and a legal curfew at his halfway home. He passes his few remaining days focusing on work, while working alongside his eccentric best friend Miles (Rafael Casal). Collin’s attempts to keep his head low and stay out of trouble hit a snag when he witnesses an officer gun down an unarmed Black Man. He does his best to put it behind him but Miles’ antics combined with his growing PTSD began to haunt him like none other. Colin’s crisis of conscience and rage all climaxes to an event you will never see coming!

This film deserves every award on the books! We are not surprised that Daveed is amazing in this film. Anything he touches is GOLD. Even more surprising is that he wrote this moving film with Rafael. Blindspotting is a movie you will laugh, cry, and have to watch again and again because it is just that deep. As a Black Man, or even a person of color in this country, you will relate to Colin and his shortcomings.

Honestly, we need more films–mainstream and independent–to tackle this topic. Indeed, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was right, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Be sure you catch Blindspotting anywhere it can be found. Daveed and Rafael, kudos, kudos, and KUDOS!
