Marvel’s Infinity War was so damn Good…I’m mad now

Marvel’s Infinity War was so damn Good…I’m mad now

You ever witness something so good that it makes you think about how trash EVERYTHING else is? That’s how I felt watching Infinity War. My criteria for a great movie is very simple and I’ll break it down with these three questions:

Is it re watchable?

  • HELL YAH! From start to finish this movie was filled with Easter eggs (connections to the comic books and movies) with so many characters bunched together following different story lines this movie plays it like an elegant flute. This movie is the Superhero version of the Expendable with less corny lines old lines.

Is it original?

  • Yes, the ending is so original my mouth was more open than Teanna Trump (google her ūüėČ ) on a casting couch ! This ensemble cast displayed different stories BUT Thanos was our protagonist, he is the anti hero that links all of our Superheros together and that is why it is so original. The last movie that perfected the anti hero was Sweeney Todd the Demon Barber…and Infinity War was better.

Will it last?

  • Definitely. It’s very simple, when you watch a movie or any piece of art the way it makes you feel at the time is different when you revisit it. BUT, the core of how it made you feel will always be there. Think about the first time you saw Lion King (the greatest movie ever made), if you were to watch it today you would see it in new eyes but still love it because it stands the test of time. Infinity Wars is THAT good. It explores fatherhood, mentor-ship, abandonment, sacrifice, empathy, evil, rationality, comedy, romance and even has some soap opera elements.

Downfalls?

  • It seemed a bit long, they could have cut out some scenes, but Its understandable because the MCU is interconnected.
  • Lots of Cameos that were not needed…you’ll see why

Final Thoughts

  • This is a must watch for any comic book fan, superhero fan, movie fan or a regular joe who doesn’t give a fuck about Marvel.
  • Infinity War goes to a rare spot that very few Superhero movies go, a wild ride that everyone should take.
  • 9/10

WTF happened last night?

WTF happened last night?

If you and countless football fans stayed up last night to watch the draft…imam clap for you…we got a show!!! And in typical Dallas Cowboy fashion it was long, elaborate and highly questionable. But I won’t waste your time, when I finally shut off the TV after watching 4 hours of draft coverage¬†I had one thought in my mind “WTF DID I JUST WATCH?”! I was on the edge of punching¬†a wall and getting a beer to celebrate (but I live in Ottawa and all the bars are dead at 1130pm). Here is my quick analysis of what happened last night. Winners, Losers, Surprises and Predictions, lets GET IT!

Winner

Baltimore Ravens

Simple, the main need was a Wide Receiver because we had the worst passing offence in the league, Joe Floppo Flacco was averaging 5.7 yards per attempt last season…my 7 year old sister can do that. Instead of taking Calvin Ridley or DJ Moore he grabbed a big Tight End, Hayden Hurst, who is projected to be the next Travis Kelce. Since our Offensive Coordinator is addicted to check down plays why not grab a big 6’5 260lbs guy to take it in the middle (no homo).

NO ONE believes in Flacco anymore, last season was his worst statistically…this is the first season I believed those “Joe isn’t Elite” memes that NFL fans love to use. It’s simple, we can’t win with him so Ozzie¬†came up to grab¬†LAMAR “THE FUTURE” JACKSON! Biggest steal in the draft! Lamar has the drive, skills and hustle to take us to another SuperBowl and a great Mentor in Robert Griffin III, my prediction is that we trade Flacco at the end of this season, RG3 and Jackson battle it out for the starter spot. Since RG3 is the football Derrick Rose, he’ll get merked and the Lamar Jackson era will begin.


Honorable Mention

New York Giants: Saquon Barkley is going be the best Running Back they’ve had since Tiki Barber, rookie of the year candidate, you heard it here first.

San Diego Chargers : Derwin James and Casey Hayward…just imagine that secondary…maaaan I feel sorry for AFC West trash QBs and Wide outs…my gawd…

 

Loser

New York Jets

Sam Darnold doesn’t like the Jets he never wanted to be there, Josh Rosen was literally right there…Sam Darnold is gonna be Mark Sanchez and that is not a good thing. With 4 WHOLE ASS QUARTERBACKS on the depth chart the New York “we’ll find a way to fuck up” Jets decided to get a 5th one. Terrible decision…why not get a strong O-Lineman? Why not support your terrible defence by grabbing a reliable Defensive End…Bradley Chubb was right there. I just feel bad for Todd Bowels, he’s going to get fired for¬†this headass decision…Sam Darnold has BUST written all over him.

New

Honorable Mention

New England Patriots:¬†Yes I said it…the Pats did not need a Running Back and¬†on top of that they didn`t get a reliable¬†one. Sony¬†Michel¬†will not succeed in¬†Belicheik`s system, that`s a fact, they should have got Guise from LSU.

Bengals :….wtf did they do?

Surprises

  • Baker Time in The Land? He is not Johnny Manziel but the mans has the potential to be, especially with the homie Josh Gordon and JR Smith in the same city, I give it 3 months till we have a cocaine and hooker scandal. Baker has the potential to be great but so does everyone in the first round, he needs leadership and guidance, two things the Browns have NEVER had. We might be looking at the Brown’s 29th QB change¬†since 1999…
  • Shaquille Griffin getting Snubbed! He is clearly a first round Linebacker and to see 3 guys that play his same position get drafted beforehand was shocking and pathetic. Let the man BALL
  • Lamar Jackson as the last pick ! To be real I’m not complaining too much cause I love him on our Ravens but I expected mid 1st round or even going to Arizona
  • Josh Rosen slipping ! He was predicted to be a top 5 pick and even the 1st overall pick on some boards, to see him slide to 10th was almost as bad as seeing Jackson slide to 32

Predictions

Only Jackson and Mayfield actually become elite/pro bowl Quarterbacks, Rosen, Allen and Darnold remain 2nd string guys or go to the CFL.

The Cleveland Browns become relevant in 2 seasons and take the AFC North title.

Saquon Barkley or Calvin Ridley win Offensive Rookie of the year

Bradley Chubb walks away with Defensive Rookie  of the year easily

 

 

Rampage – Movie Review

Rampage – Movie Review

Its spring and we already know what time it is. Studios are looking for that HIT, a blockbuster and they are desperate. Let’s keep it real, most of the movies that we will see in the next three months are gonna be absolute doo doo cakes but I can confidently say, Rampage is not one!

Most of the time trailers are very misleading but this was not the case, from start to finish this was a goofy action movie that accomplished its task, edge of the seat action. From the first scene to the dramatic explosive ending this movie was a fun ride. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson came in and played Dwayne Johnson, but George stole the show. Start to end. This movie will give you King Kong on steroids vibes and its actually funny. My only critique for this movie is that it was predictable, from the begging we saw the end coming. This can be attributed to the fact that most Action/Monster movies are predictable but they could have had more fun with it. My boy Dwayne should have became a gigantic monster too fam (he basically does at the end [and no that aint a spoiler]).

Overall this movie is 4.5/5 stars and it is a must watch for Johnson fans and all fans of fun movies. It’s gonna kill at the box office, just watch.
