Thor is the 4th movie released in the Marvel Cinematic Universe movie series. It stars Chris Hemsworth as the might Thor, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, and Tom Hiddleston as the mischievous Loki.
I was dreading rewatching this movie. I remembered there was a Thor movie that was absolutely horrible. The dreadful movie wasn’t the first Thor movie. It was the second Thor movie, Thor: The Dark World.
Thor tells the story of the fallen god of thunder. He has been cast out of Asgard by his father, Odin (Anthony Hopkins). The world of earth doesn’t believe he’s truly the god of thunder.
He has to convince those around him of his true identity while battling to get back to Asgard. In his absence, the Frost Giants try to invade Asgard and kill Odin. Read more...

The First Strike
On June 2nd, 1984, Columbia Pictures shocked the world with the first installment of the Karate Kid franchise. It resonated on several deep levels for many Americans both young and old. Young Daniel moves to California from the East Coast with his single mother. He realizes there is a huge divide between the middle-class and upper-class communities despite their close proximity to each other.
Daniel (Ralph Macchio) gets into an ongoing conflict with one of the rich kids at his high school, Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka), when he befriends Johnny’s girlfriend Ali Mills (Elisabeth Shue). Read more...
Monster Hunter is a movie (you can watch it on Amazon Prime) based on the Capcom video game series of the same name. I remember playing the original Monster Hunter game for the Playstation 2. It was an interesting game, but it has very little to do with the movie.
Later entries in the Monster Hunter game series have more to do with the movie. I’m sure this excites those who have followed the series more than I have.
Still, with that in mind, I really enjoyed Monster Hunter. The action was fast, and it brought me into a world I never knew.
Monster Hunter finds a team from the United States Army transported to a strange, new world full of mythical creatures. There, they discover there’s more going on than they believed.
Sadly, not all of the Army members make it out alive… Read more...
I love to watch movies hated by critics. Many times, these movies are more enjoyable than the critically acclaimed movies of our time. If nothing else, they are more fun.
One such movie is 20th Century Fox’s Daredevil film.
Many of 20th Century Fox’s films are decried by critics. Most of the X-Men movies have been poo-pooed by critics. The Fantastic Four movies (did you hear there’s a new one being produced by Marvel?!?) were hated. Daredevil fell in with these films.
The hate for the Daredevil movie hit especially hard after Netflix did a great series for Daredevil. I also highly recommend that version of Daredevil.
However, I have always loved the Daredevil movie. It was fun, entertaining, and kept my attention.
I don’t know about you, but I think I may love this Daredevil movie. If nothing else, Daredevil provides many leadership lessons. Read more...
Now, The Little Things could mean a lot of things. This one is for the movie The Little Things starring the always amazing Denzel Washington (check out his great movies on Amazon) as Joe “Deke” Deacon, a Kern County Deputy Sheriff who is sent back home to Los Angeles. He is there to collect evidence for a pending court case. His simple task became much more complicated as he begins to try to solve a complicated case involving a serial killer.
He runs into old friends and friends who have become hostile. He also runs into Jim Baxter (Rami Malek from Bohemian Rhapsody), a great up and coming LASD detective.
The two begin investigating the case together, though separately. Their investigation leads them to Albert Sparma (Jared Leto who played the Joker in The Suicide Squad), their top suspect. Read more...
