Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Trailer Reactions

I am not sure what it is but there is something about dinosaurs that never fails to bring out the kid in me. Maybe it is the fact that I always imagined what it would be like to own a velociraptor and have it be a protector of the house… If only Blue were real.

Getting back to the point, this trailer is pretty awesome. It appears as if our characters return to Isla Nublar after learning that there will be a volcanic eruption that will destroy all life on the island. Seeing as how Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) and Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) were the two people who had such a crucial part in the building and development of original Jurassic World, they are the ones who want(?) to go back and save the dinosaurs. Might just be me but after the events of the first movie, I would be a little hesitant to return to that island, with wild dinosaurs running around and what not but what do I know?

Avengers: Infinity War Trailer Reactions

So if you were living under a rock for the past 20 hours, the highly anticipated “Avengers: Infinity War” trailer dropped this morning and had social media fanboying out like never before.

Honestly, after a trailer like that, I cannot really blame anyone for the complete insanity that ensued afterwards. This trailer is breathtakingly awesome and left me with goosebumps.

Beginning with the “There was an idea…” monologue from Nick Fury, this trailer is absolutely relentless and shows absolutely everything that fans wanted to see. We see virtually every Marvel character to date (hey Hawkeye, where the hell where you man?!) and each of them is dealing with their own set of unique circumstances.

Tony Stark is contemplating life. Bruce Banner is crashed through the floor of some building. Vision and Wanda Maximoff are falling in love. Thor is watching from afar. Peter Parker is being a kid… That all changes when the biggest, baddest villain to date, Thanos, appears in downtown New York.

I do not want to spoil the trailer for anyone who has not seen it but the shots and scenes afterwards are just phenomenal and look incredible.  Continue reading “Avengers: Infinity War Trailer Reactions”

10 Horror Movies That Affect You Long After Watching

Finding a well-made horror movie is a rare occurrence in the entertainment industry today. As of late, it seems as if production companies have forgotten what it means to produce quality horror and scares and instead focus on providing cheap jump scares such as the ones found in 2017’s “Bye Bye Man” that target the teenage audience.

Most of the time, society and Hollywood, for that matter, seem to forget what good horror is. This list looks at 10 horror movies, across different decades, which take simple concepts and turn them into something terrifying that keeps the audience on edge after viewing.

All of the movies within the list are made for mature audiences due to graphic content. Additionally, it will contain spoilers so proceed with caution.

A Clockwork Orange (1971)

The oldest entry in the list but perhaps is still one of the most relevant. A Clockwork Orange focuses on the story of how the government would like to change the violent and sadistic behavior of a thug named Alex through aversion therapy. While it works for a bit of time and can no longer stand the sight of violence, events progress in the movie and eventually lead Alex to hitting his head. Upon waking, he finds out violence no longer has an effect on him.

It makes one question whether it is okay and moral for any individual to attempt to change who one is by using different forms of therapy and just how much power the government should have over people. While different in techniques and reason, it could be argued that the aversion therapy that is used within the movie is similar to some of the therapy techniques used in conversion therapy (link 1).
