    A Jester and a Clown

    We had a lot of great films that has come out in the year of 2019. We had Avengers Endgame, John Wick 3, Yesterday, and so on. But between the big summer films that were dominating this year, there were two films I couldn't forget. One film is about a man who has a mental disorder who’s living in a terrible condition, and the other is about a poor soul who is abandoned and is alone in an isolated place for a long time. These two might sound the same, but the only similarity is the characters the two films mostly focus on. These two characters I'm going to talk about is Arthur Fleck and Spinel.

    A Filmmaker's Review: 'Malcolm X' (1992)

    Let me just say this. When I finally did watch this film all the way through, I had been wanting to for many years after only seeing the first half an hour or so a few times. Visually, the film is absolutely stunning, the acting is brilliant and the way it has been filmed coincides with the time in which it took place. On that point, the thing I really like about the film is that in some aspects, certain sections are filmed like news reports from the 50s and 60s with the cameras running after the people they're filming etc. and the various tracking shots on large scale marches.

    My dad and I are both classic movie fans, it's one of the few things we bond over. We have a ritual of meticulously combing TCM’s weekly schedule and recording anything that sounds interesting. It started last summer; I was too depressed to go outside, and instead sat for hours, near-vegetative in front of the TV as Ben Mankiewicz talked about movies I’d only heard referenced in passing. I like a little bit of everything; my dad, as of late, watches anything related to WWII—typical middle-aged white dad fare—and that’s really where it starts.

    4 Questions We Need Answered in 'Stranger Things' Season 4

    4 Questions We Need Answered in 'Stranger Things' Season 4

    The third season of Stranger Things was one wild ride and probably the craziest adventure the series has taken audiences on so far. One would think it would be hard to top Demogorgons and giant monsters from another dimension. But the Netflix series outdid itself with a compelling narrative involving the Mind Flayers' unique return and a fun, 80s inspired Russian secret lab conspiracy beneath StarCourt Mall. Yup, the latest season was pretty crazy in how it unveiled many things about the Stranger Things Universe, notably that Russia knows about the Upside Down and have discovered many gateways into it. This leads to so much speculation on where the next season will take subscribers.

    Soap Hub is reporting that TMZ recently announced that Soap Opera veteran Tyler Christopher had been arrested for being drunk in public. The information that was reported indicated that the actor had been doing too much partying for his birthday, but obviously this was a cover story. Christopher's former General Hospital cast mate Nancy Lee Grahn is speaking out with a different reason for what transpired. The actress who portrays Alexis Davis on the ABC daytime drama reveals that the man who was her TV cousin Nikolas Cassadine has a terrible disease and is at risk of losing his life. This sounds like the actress has serious concerns regarding Christopher.

    Joker

    As the Joker movie (that no one in any way asked for or wanted) comes out, I think it is important to take a look at comic book Joker’s origins and story lines. The Joker first appeared in the debut issue of Batman in April of 1940. He was originally supposed to be a single-issue villain but was editorially spared by Whitney Ellsworth. In his original comic book appearances, the Joker is introduced as a psychopath with a sadistic sense of humor. It was not until the 1950s that he became more of a prankster.

    Captain Spidey: 1 Year Later

    Captain Spidey: 1 Year Later

    Greetings, Vocal readers. This article is for all the Spider-Man fans out there. On this day a year ago, the most amazing thing happened to me that it almost didn’t become a reality. I’m talking about one of my cosplays: Captain Spidey. On November 21, 2018, I got my very first Spider-Man suit from Zentaizone, which sells different kinds of suits, including Spider-Man suits. It took me a while to customize my suit and choose my measurements, such as the size of my waist, feet, and arms. Luckily, I got the hang of it and ordered it. I had to wait a few weeks for my suit to arrive. On the day it was supposed to arrive to me, there was a problem. It was sent to my old address as opposed to my new address. So I had to go to the leasing office of my old apartment complex and pick up my package. I opened my package and when I tell you, my eyes lit up. I couldn’t believe that I now owned a Spider-Man suit. I posted pics of it on my social media pages and did a live stream, receiving positive feedback.

    Are your Spidey senses tingling? Good, because this article is about our friendly, neighborhood Spider-Man. I recently asked people to submit their photos to me on Facebook, showing off their favorite suits. They were amazing and I can't wait to show them to everyone. I'm more of a DC fan, but I do respect Marvel fans and I watch more Marvel movies than I do DC. The first Marvel cosplay I debuted last year was The Human Spider from the 2002 film, Spider-Man. I attended a Halloween festival in my area two weeks later, wearing that same outfit. Then the day before my birthday, a loss that crushed Marvel fans everywhere: the death of Stan Lee. Finally, I received something amazing: my first Spider-Man suit. It arrived in the mail before Thanksgiving and when I first tried it on, I was giddy and couldn't wait to show it off to my friends. So I posted pics and videos on social media and received positive feedback. Over two weeks later, I went to see Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and yes, I did see that movie in my Captain Spider-Man suit. I've now had my suit for almost a year and have been going to cons and other events in it since. I do plan on buying another suit soon, most likely, Miles Morales. I didn't know that there were around 40 different kinds of Spider-Man suits before today.

    Captain Jack Sparrow is probably the most famous fictional pirate seen in generations, pushing infamous figures like Captain Blood and Treasure Island's Captain Flint right out of the limelight. While the drunken antics and wild shenanigans of the crazed captain have become iconic to Johnny Depp's portfolio, fans have been asking for years whether a character that creative (and downright strange) could really be spun out of whole cloth.

Though not as many people have read the originals penned by creator Ian Fleming (who was sort of an insane badass in his own right), the books have survived, and even thrived for decades now. For all that time there has been one, burning question in the minds of many franchise fans; who is the real James Bond?

If, however, you feel completely clear about that, then let’s carry on into our focus on three very different adaptations of Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. We will be looking at: the 2015 film entitled Victor Frankenstein, which pays close attention to some of the events in the book, and uses the same atmosphere. The next film we will look at is the famed Rocky Horror Picture Show, which takes concepts from the book, and changes the ideas surrounding it, including genre and character. The final adaptation we will concentrate on is characteristic adaptation, which we will find in the MCU character of Iron Man as Victor Frankenstein.

    The whole world splits into two sides whenever a comic book movie hits the theaters and we really can't blame people for it. The rivalry between Marvel and DC dates back to the 1960s when Stan Lee released the Fantastic Four comics. Today, the rivalry is still intact with both these companies releasing epic blockbusters and busting down the box office time and again. However, some movies really just has it all and irrespective of the company behind them, they are appreciated by fans all over the world. Joker is one such masterpiece.

    Why Most Black People Hate the 'Harriet' Movie

    Why Most Black People Hate the 'Harriet' Movie

    The movie Harriet was supposed to be a historical biopic documentary film that was publicized as an homage to the great pioneer of the underground railroad Harriet Tubman, but was portrayed as something else. The movie was co-written by Kasi Lemmons and Gregory Allen Howard, but the way the movie was written ticked off people in the black community for several reasons. Harriet was portrayed as a female sex slave of her slave master "that was giving up the goodies up and down the underground railroad." Well, first off, British actress Cynthia Erivo (who does not like black Americans and is outspoken about it) was selected to play the lead role in the portrayal of Harriet Tubman. Erivo being selected as the lead did stir up a negative buzz because of her negative thoughts and remarks about black Americans that she has stated in interviews and posted on her social media. Erivo is a stage actress who had a debut role in the Broadway classic The Color Purple alongside Jennifer Hudson, who portrayed singer Shug Avery. Erivo is also a Tony Award-winning actress. Black America was trying to figure out how and why the directors and writers of the movie chose Erivo to play Harriet Tubman? Erivo is an accomplished stage actress, but seems to look out of place on the silver screen. Also, the black community wanted to see Harriet Tubman portrayed by a black American actress that respected the culture.

So I'm looking forward to seeing another year. In this article, I'm talking about Power Rangers, specifically #MorphinMonday. This hashtag, which has well over 1,000 posts on Instagram, holds true to Power Rangers fans everywhere. About two months ago, I attended Arkansas Comic Con and Jason David Frank was one of the guests during that weekend. I was fortunate enough to not only do a photo op with him, but also shook his hand and said it was nice to meet him. Before attending this con, I've never met any Power Rangers star, but I did just that and knocked off an item from my bucket list. It was an exciting experience, because this was a guy that I grew up watching. In case you haven't seen my Arkansas Comic Con review and how my meeting with Jason David Frank went, I'll post a link to it at the end of this article so you can read it yourself.

    Well, after such a controversial and big episode last week, entering into this episode is quite the experience. And wow, what an episode it was. First off, Jamal was voted out; decent move, though I did want to see Dan get booted after that whole thing. Anyway, back at camp, I'm proud that Janet didn't quit. I hope she wins it all. She is the strongest person in the game emotionally and it's great she didn't quit. Then, a rat crawled in Karishma's mouth, freaking her out. And then, she slept in and didn't do any work. Not a good move for someone on the outs. So, it seemed obvious that she'd get booted out. But then, she found an idol. Looks like she won't be gone anytime soon. But she showed up an hour later, only to fake sick to make the excuse. But, then Lauren, Tommy & Noura said they'd call over the doctor for her. But, she refused and said she felt better after drinking some water, though Noura was quick not to believe that. But for now, that doctor situation seemed to be avoided.

    'Wonder Woman: Bloodlines' Managed to Make a Wonder Woman Fan Out of Me

    Here we are again with the DC animated universe. I do not even have the slightest idea of how profitable these movies are but honestly, if these movies ever get the mainstream push that the DCEU gets then they will elevate this market to a level never seen in superhero animation. Now I am not saying that Wonder Woman: Bloodlines would be the movie to do it but it certainly would bring well-deserved attention to the DCAU(Dc Animated Universe). By no means is Wonder Woman: Bloodlines a bad movie, but if a few things here and there were changed it would go from good to great. THIS IS A SPOILER REVIEW MOSTLY BECAUSE I DON'T THINK THE STORY IS WHERE THE MOVIES SHINES SO IF YOU WANT TO EXPERIENCE IT ON YOUR OWN BE WARNED.
