6 Movie Characters Who Are Great Role Models

The kids of today are more influenced by fictional characters than in any time in history. That’s because our society has somehow come to the conclusion that in order for our children to grow up properly we must give them their own personal viewing device (cell phone), at the earliest sign of puberty, so that they never have to be separated from instant entertainment.  So, for that reason, and because I just like thinking about these kinds of things, I’ve decided to create a list of some of the best fictional role models for kids in today’s entertainment. For my list, … Continue reading 6 Movie Characters Who Are Great Role Models

Who is Ant Man?

Another Marvel superhero comes to the big screen this week. He’s Ant-Man, a name that is not exactly a household name like Spider Man, Superman or Batman. Marvel Comic book fans will instantly identify Ant-Man as one of the founding members of The Avengers. That fact alone gives us an important clue as to why Ant-Man is being deemed important enough to be given his own big-budget movie. We can expect to see him joining Iron Man, Captain America and the rest in upcoming Avengers films. It’s already been confirmed that Ant-Man will be in the upcoming film, Captain America: Civil War, … Continue reading Who is Ant Man?

Marvel vs DC Epic

This is only a fantasy movie, but it’s a really fun fantasy, so why not indulge a little. What if there were a movie that pitted Marvel superheroes against DC superheroes? I don’t think it will every happen, but the trailer below allows us to dream a little. It’s created by fan, Alex Luthor. It’s very well made with sharp editing, great music, and clips of probably every superhero that’s hit the big screen in the last 10 years. There are even a few who, I’m pretty sure, have only appeared in trailers, no actual movies yet. There’s even one … Continue reading Marvel vs DC Epic

Guardians, Not The Same As Avengers

The new movie, Guardians of the Galaxy is about a group of heroes, adapted from a Marvel comic book series, much like another group of heroes from Marvel Comics, The Avengers. I have yet to see Guardians, but it’s receiving high praise from critics with a 91% at rottentomatoes.com. For the sake of comparison, The Avengers received a 92%. Guardians of the Galaxy has the polished look, plenty of hype, and strong reviews, setting it up to be another big superhero movie for Marvel, much like The Avengers back in 2012. The similarity between the two teams of heroes stops there. The … Continue reading Guardians, Not The Same As Avengers

Avengers Spoof

The Avengers is one of my favorite movies of all time, but I also love a good spoof. I couldn’t resist watching this Honest Trailer of The Avengers. It’s very funny and most of the jokes are pretty much right on. I laughed all the way through it. Watch and enjoy … and then go watch The Avengers again because it really is a great movie.
