Avengers: Infinity War Trailer Review

Marvel has never disappointed and judging from the Avengers: Infinity War trailer released at the end of last year they are not about to start. In the trailer we see Thanos arriving in New York City, some of our favourite heroes and heroines seemingly fall off their pedestal and possibly, the climactic battle for the universe takes place in Wakanda. The crossover seems to be the ultimate showdown that has been complemented by a ten-year cinematic journey. The trailer has debuted new characters, new looks and most importantly new information about the Marvel universe, and at the same time raised some burning questions. While this review might not give all the information down to the detail, here are some of the things you should expect.

The change in costumes

In the course of the trailer, it’s obvious that some characters have upgraded their looks. Vision, in the trailer, seems to have switched from synthezoid to human using the infinity stone. Peter Parker seems to have taken Tony’s offer and embraced the Spider Iron suit. The costume looks like a crossover between the comics and the Ben Reilly’s saga near the end of the Clone Saga. If this does not make sense, you have some catching up to do. The new costume links Spiderman: Homecoming, by the way, they can still put in the clone saga reference in the movie, and we will still be excited about it. That’s the amount of goodwill Spiderman: Homecoming has garnered for Marvel. Since the first footage of the Infinity war, there have been speculations about Captain America’s beard. In the movie Cap may or may not have a beard, but we’ll see. Thor has not exactly changed his look, but the eye patch at the end of Ragnarok can be seen here too.

New characters

In one of the scenes, The Black Panther seems to be fighting an alien known as the Outrider. A breed of alien trained by Thanos to be assassins. They first debuted in Jim Cheung’s and Jonathan Hickman epic Infinity Crossover. For the very first time, Proxima Midnight has been introduced into Marvel’s cinematic world. Proxima uses a spear which does not miss and kills on contact, which probably makes her one of Thanos’ Black Order. We see the badass fighter throwing the spear at Cap who promptly catches it. She is married to Glaive who is second in command to Thanos and one of the members of Thanos’ the Black Order. Glaive is untouchable as long as his golden arc stands. In the trailer, we see someone forcing the infinity stone out of Vision’s forehead; there is a high chance this is Glaive. The trailer also gives us an insight into some new teams which could only mean one thing; the Avengers characters will be changed.

Thanos and The Gauntlet

Based on the little information we have from the trailer, it is hard to predict his plan, Collect all the infinity stones and use them against the Avengers or for other reasons. In one shot we see Loki handing over the Tesseract to Thanos, from the first Avengers movie, the Tesseract is the space stone. That’s what Loki grabbed at the end of Ragnarok from Odin’s vault. Thanos drops the stone on the gauntlet alongside the power stone. The Mind stone is soon going to be on the gauntlet too which means things could get more interesting than we expect.

The Verdict

In the next two Marvel movies set to be released, there are some characters who will be eliminated, and some tears will be shed as promised by the producers. Despite this significant change bound to happen, they will still be left with a world the audiences knows and loves. They will probably introduce new characters that will have over twenty movies in line. What about Thanos? The resolution is set to be epic, but there is a high chance that Thanos and Avengers will unite to fight judge Arshem.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle: Movie Review

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is the second installment of Jumanji, with the first installment having been produced in 1995. Set in the deep jungle, it was written majorly by Chris McKenna and directed by Jake Kasdan. Its release in late 2017 revealed stars such as Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Nick Jonas, Karen Gillan and Bobby Cannavale.

Movie’s Beginning

The movie starts with a teenager receiving a board game that his father had discovered on a beach. Since no one played board games anymore, his father had cast it aside, but it miraculously turns into a video game (that the teenager loves).

The teenager and three of his schoolmates at Brantford High School are detained together as punishment for various misdemeanours. It is while clearing the school’s basement that they find the multi-player  video game and hit start playing. They are then immersed in intense gameplay and find themselves in a deep jungle.

Character Development

Each of the four main characters assumes an avatar. Spenser is portrayed as a tough, well-built explorer called Dr. Smolder Bravestone while Fridge is a zoologist named Mouse. Bethany is a male cartographer depicted as an overweight character while Martha is a beautiful martial art expert and war commando.

The movie is set deep in the jungle where the characters come across alien villains. Each has to use his or her power to either distract the villains or defeat them all together in an effort to win. There are menacing drums that characterize life in the forest. Towards the end, the drumming signifies that there could be another installment of the game series in future.

Great family movie

Anyone looking for comedic fun will find it at Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. It is especially great for older kids, thanks to the funny Black. In fact, people will be surprised at how family-friendly it is. On the flip side, some parents might be a little startled by some unnecessary sexual scenes and references such as the previously female Shelly having to use a penis to urinate.

The movie borrows ideas not only from its predecessor, but also carefully, yet likeably from other films in history. The result is an impressive piece that leaves you with eagerness to the next minute. Viewers will not be glued to the screen for the entire 124 minutes, but they will definitely find it a great watch on a boring weekend.

The inclusion of large animals such as horrible hippos, rhinos, and giant snakes helps keep excitement in the movie. It’s setting is in an unreal world affords the movie the epic feel. Children below 13 years may either fail to understand it or find it unpleasant altogether.

Verdict

A modern family will find the amusing just as teenagers on a weekend sleepover will love it. Directors have to be credited for the great cinematic appeal throughout the scenes. Some people will find it rather taking too long to accomplish its objective.

The movie is generally good for viewers of all ages. A rating of 7 out of 10 may feel like a little bit exaggerated. Luckily, the fact that all these movie stars morph back and forth their natural selves saves it from scoring a 6. Catch it at your nearest theatre.

Lindsay Lohan Continues Her Batgirl Campaign

Did you just say Lindsay Lohan is campaigning for her role as Batgirl in the upcoming thriller? Wow! That sounds remarkable. Nonetheless, just drop you eye glasses for a minute and have a look at Lindsay Lohan twitter account. It is a picture of less than a hundred words and a thousand actions. She is already in and she may get the role sooner than we can imagine. She is already in the train heading to Movie Theater, haters wake up lets pursue her ruthlessly.

 

What is her background like?

Lindsay Dee Lohan is not such a popular figure when it comes to lovers of soap operas but wait and see her take on this Batgirl role by storm. Born and raised in America, with one sister and a brother, the Lohan’s, she is a popular singer and a fashion designer. Imagine at only 12 years old she was in Disney blockbuster, The Parent Trap, and this paved many ways for her until the recent movies.

Rumors

You may think it is the imaginary term “gossip” about Lindsay, no it’s her song. This is one of the worst reasons to give someone attention when they twit informing you that they got rumor about Lindsay. This sense of mystery makes her a perfect facade for the job. I lend her 4 out of 5 points in her aspirations to role play and on account that she can “rumor” in the Batgirl role and leave us thrilled.

Would you twit her?

Whether true or not that Lindsay simulated us into believing she is looking forward to play Joss Whedon’s Batgirl role, I mean no harm stating that she would need serious class lessons from both haters and fanatics at equal and reliable measures. I or maybe you also, have no idea at this point if anybody is seriously being considered for that role in the production team. Can anyone twit Lindsay and let her clarify on this? Seeing, her tweet being retweeted a little over 2,200 times, she seems to have some supporters. It may seem jeering, but with a twitter follower count of nearly 9 million, it is fairly promising.

Any points to score?

The tag, Harry Potter, is a household name in American, Britain and European nations and it’s a growing trend in Africa. In 2017, the acclaimed “Batgirl” scored her first masterwork goal in the UK comedy entitled Sick Note alongside co-star actor Rupe Grint of the infamous Harry Potters house. With such a resume, why would Warner Bros Company not hire her? No one cheers failure unless foolhardy, and I may ridicule Lindsay since I don’t recognize her, but gazing at her profile makes me drool with joy and await to say “hi” or ‘guten morgen’ to her facial expression.

A Yes or No for the Batgirl

Does anybody understands the pain of seeing his or her parents’ divorce? In 2007, that is what bowed Lindsay, and she went ahead to take up the responsibility of nurturing her siblings. It’s not such a good obligation since one can lose social moments and it might have destroyed some social cells in her body, my thinking. Again, she naturally plays out as unpredictable and a hard to deal with character making her perfect batgirl.

Is this the end of Chris Hemsworth as Thor?

Chris Hemsworth has over the last decade become a household name in movies. Having starred in a number of movies, the actor has made exemplary progress in science fiction. After the signing with Marvel, the writer has managed to achieve extraordinary success as the character Thor. Having gained a great number of fans, it has come as a disappointment that the actor’s role as Thor in Avengers 4 will be his last. This will mark his completion of his contract with Marvel. Upon this revelation, the public, more so his fans have been left to wonder if this will be the end of Marvel’s Thor.

Chris Hemsworth’s Marvel Contract Is Ending with Avengers 4

Avengers 4 is one of the most anticipated movies this 2018. This is owing to the movie sequel’s plot with Thanos as the main villain. The movie promises Thanos being the greatest villain the Avengers have ever faced. This movie in the same breath marks the end of an era in the Marvel universe. With most of the Avenger’s characters facing the potential completion of their roles in Marvel, the movie may very well mark the end of the Avengers. Thor has been one of the main characters in the Avenger’s team and will most definitely be missed if he leaves behind his role as the character Thor.

What’s next?

There has been chatter however following last year’s release in marvels Thor: Ragnarok. being the third in the Thor sequel and predicted to be the last, rumors indicate that Marvel may be thinking of releasing a continuation of the same in Thor 4.whether this will come to be is a wait and see in the not so near future. To the fans, the end of the contract has been a disappointment especially in the characters comments on interview questions. Chris Hemsworth has been quoted stating that his contract is over and he won’t is playing the character again. This has made most fans wonder whether his time with Marvel has not been pleasant hinting at an uninterested Chris Hemsworth. The character can however not be counted out just yet. The actor Robert Downey Jr was also considered having left his work with Marvel as the iron man after the end of his contract. This was however short-lived as he made his appearance back into Marvel in Avengers and holding on to the much-awaited infinity war. The question now burning at the back of most Marvel fans mind is what is next. What is next for Marvel and what can we expect in the coming years now that most of the characters may not be coming back.

Chris Hemsworth has been a great actor as the character Thor without a doubt. It is difficult to imagine anyone else playing the same role. His contract binding him to six films is now at an end with the release of Avengers: infinity war. His role as the son of Odin and God of thunder may be in its finality but until further notice, this cannot be known for sure. For most Marvel fans, the hope is that Chris Hemsworth’s character stays alive as they face Thanos in the hope that he will reappear in the near future. In case he survives Avengers 4, it is highly likely that we will see Thor again, Chris Hemsworth, however, is another case of wait and see.
