The Marvel Cinematic Universe expanded a little more this week with the release of its latest superhero film and the completion of a trilogy with Thor: Ragnarok!

This time around our favorite god of thunder and Avenger, finds himself in the middle of another family feud with the fate of The Nine Realms and the universe itself in danger!

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!

[REVIEW] Riveting! The Truth About Jordan Peele’s “Us” (@UsMovie) is SHOCKING!

The American horror film genre has always been crazy, but seldom has been it been BLACK! Award winning director, screenwriter, and comedian, Jordan Peele has been changing the color of the genre with Get Out and now, Us! Us, starring Black Panther alumni, Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke, centers on a Black family visiting their summer home who soon finds themselves in danger from their doppelgangers (n. an apparition or double of a living person)! The family must outmaneuver these unexplained duplicates and fight for their loves. The origins of these apparitions is so sci-fi it will defy logic!

Grade: A-

What We Liked

-The concept of fighting your doppelganger! They say you are your own worst enemy. This was definitely the case in this film.

-The origins of the doppelgangers. Beware of playing God!

-Lupita Nyong’o taking on the final girl moments of the film.

What We Loved

-The bumbling nature of Gabe Wilson (Winston Duke) was maddening, but hilarious.

-The use of rabbits as a motif of duplication and cloning

-The acting of the cast. They really played two separate people. From their make up to their demeanor, and even how they moved was so believable it will leave you wondering do you have your own doppelganger.

-The symbolization of the golden scissors in “un-tethering” people from their doppelgangers.

-The ending and explanation as to why the attacks started and the truth of Adelaide Wilson’s (Lupita Nyong’o) origins.

What We Hated

-We really wanted to see a typical Black Family’s reaction to something like this. Their response seemed very stereotypical and “Caucasian” of the horror film genre.

We have to say we are extremely happy to see Toy Story 4 on the horizon. We really wish it was a weekly series–wishful thinking, we know. Still, we love the trailer and this may very well be their biggest adventure yet.

Annie Potts as “Bo Peep”

The film seems to run off the same motif of girl power as so many films have over the last couple of years with the return of Bo Peep SAVING Woody no less. We often wondered what happened to her between the second and third Toy Story films. Fanfare alleged she was either broken by Andy’s (the toys’ former owner) sister or simply given away. The trailer, however, alludes she was lost and seems to be thriving, however.

Toy Story 4 hits theaters nationwide this summer on June 21, 2019!
