The MCU's Next Thanos
The MCU has given Marvel fans one spectacular movie after another over the course of the last decade and a half. Along with that run of amazing films, Marvel Studios has also given us one of the greatest villains in the entire history of cinematography.., Thanos. The "Mad Titan" storyline was over 10 years in the making and the final payoff was not only well deserved but also one that will be remembered for decades. However, now that the character's reign of terror within the MCU has come and gone, fans are dying to know who the next "boss villain" be for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The following is a list of 3 prime candidates who could go on to fill that role.
A Letter To My Dad
Dear Dad, About a month ago, I entered a writing competition where I was supposed to write a letter to my hero. After a ton of consideration, I decided to write a letter to myself in 10 years but I had also planned to write a letter to my other hero, a letter to you...
The Tale Of You & Me Part 3: Together Again
Dear Greta, Once again, it is time for me to continue telling our story. When we last left off, it was reaching the end of our first time apart. Throughout the years, I have joked every now and again about being the king of self-destructive behavior. While I may have always said it in a joking manner, I wholeheartedly believe that I have the bad habit of sabotaging anything good going for me in my life. It's undoubtedly one of my worse habits and something that I have recently been trying to address. Unfortunately, my self-destructive tendencies applied to our relationship as well. There's no way for me to sugar coat it Greta, I fucked up. I broke your heart and I was absolutely sure that we wouldn't ever be together again after I did. Although, life can have the habit of surprising us, this time the surprise came in the form of a message that I received from you.
Cobra Kai: Hawk's Redemption
Season 4 of Cobra Kai came and went quicker than we'd hoped. By the season finale, we were left with plenty of cliffhangers to ensure that fans would be looking forward to season 5. One character ark that was left at a good place was Eli's or, as we know him, Hawk. We've seen Hawk go from a defenseless nerd to gaining his confidence, to becoming a villain, and then to finally becoming a hero. We're going to be covering the entire trajectory of his character ark throughout seasons 1 through 4. So if you have you aren't completely caught up, you should be warned, there are massive spoilers ahead.
A Letter To Myself In 10 Years
Dear Carlos, I wanted to enter into one of the many challenges that Vocal offers its writers. The challenge that I entered required me to write a letter to my hero. However, I wasn't sure who I considered my hero to be. Initially, I was trying to choose between either Jordan Peterson, Elon Musk, or Mr. Beast. Although, after seeking advice from my family, I was given the idea to write a letter to you... or should I say to us.
Jordan Peterson's Best Lessons
Right around the time my ex-wife left me, I stumbled onto a speech by a former psychology professor from the University of Harvard. They say that God puts people in your life at exactly the time that you need them and that's how I felt about Jordan Peterson. Although he became widely known for his controversial stance on transgender pronoun laws, he is also famous for the amount of help his speeches have been for young men my age. His words were so powerful that I had to go out and buy his book 12 Rules For Life immediately. So, for the sake of sharing his lessons with others who may need them, these are the greatest things I learned from Jordan Peterson.
5 Horror Movies Hollywood Needs To Reboot
Over the course of the last decade, Hollywood has rebooted movies from nearly every genre. These reboots are either hit or miss, in other words, they're either extremely successful or absolute flops. One could make the argument that out of all the movie genres, the best reboots have come from horror movies. Childs Play, It, Holloween, and, most recently, Scream, all have had a significant amount of success in the box office. The latest technology in cinematography is to blame for that. Given how successful those projects were, one can't help but think about some other projects that have a significant amount of reboot potential. Under the right circumstances, these movies could certainly be home runs if they were to be rebooted today.
The Tale Of You & Me Part 2: Breaking Your Heart
Dear Greta, It's time for the second part of our story. This is a period of time that, at one point or another, we both wished never happened. Unfortunately, not only did it happen but it's a major chapter of our history. On my 18th birthday, we went on a trip to Orlando with my family. Neither of us knew it at the time but this was one of the last good memories the two of us would make for a while.
Thank You, Gabriella
It's been months since I last heard your voice... 4 years since I've held you in my arms. I want to begin by letting you know that I'm sorry I let you down. The last 4 years have amounted to the biggest failure of my entire life. I've lost out on so much time with you and I'll never get it back. Gabriella, I also need you to know how much I've missed you. Don't think for a second that I've gone a single day without thinking about you at least twice. The final thing I want you to know is thank you. This may be hard for you to understand but I owe you my life. I had to go through something that changed my life forever. Something that could've taken me out of the game for good. It could've... but it didn't and the reason for that is you.
Thanos Tried To Be A Hero
The MCU has had many great villains throughout its existence. Killmonger, Hela, Ultron, all of them were villains that captured our attention with ease. However, there is no greater villain than the Big Bad himself, Thanos. One could even argue that he is up there with Darth Vader and Voldemort for greatest movie villains of all time. The thing is as good of a bad guy as he was, it has been pointed out that his long list of horrible actions might have been carried out with the greater good in mind. Now that The Eternals has come and gone from theaters, we have been given further evidence to support this argument. Sure he may have snapped half of all life in the universe out of existence but was it all in the name of saving all life in the universe. Imagine that, one of the greatest movie villains of all time was trying to be a hero.
I Survived Addiction (Part 1)
Addiction... mental illness... the two go hand and hand. I have struggled with mental illness my entire life. Anxiety, PTSD, depression, I've struggled with them all. It has never been easy but for most of my life, I've managed to maintain a happy life in spite of my mental illnesses. That was until something happened in my life and I completely lost sight of who I was. Life hits hard sometimes... and on this particular occasion, it hit me harder than it ever had before. In the immediate aftermath, I was under the false impression that I was at my lowest point. I didn't think my situation could possibly get any worse. The problem is that I was mistaken and as time went on, my "lowest point" continued to get even lower. Every time I thought I was at rock bottom, I quickly discovered that there was another level below me. Throughout all of this, my anxiety, PTSD, and depression became too much for me to bear. I didn't know who I was anymore, all I knew is that I was broken and I wasn't sure what I could possibly do to fix things. So I gave up... and made the worst decision I had ever made in my entire life. The decision to begin using drugs to suppress the intensity of my mental illness.
