Why Jason Momoa Is the Right Aquaman


Why Jason Momoa Is the Right Aquaman

Jason Momoa plays Aquaman in the upcoming DC comic book-based movie. Do you plan on going to see it? Undoubtedly, something tells me that Aquaman will please fans. I expect the movie to generate at least $300 million at the box office. Maybe, $500 million is within reach.

I watched a few Aquaman trailers and I’m impressed. Jason Momoa is the right man for the job. Plus, Amber Heard is a fine addition to the cast. Seeing those two on the silver screen together is a treat. Moreover, look for Nicole Kidman to demonstrate why she is at the pinnacle of success in the film.

Aquaman made an appearance in Batman V. Superman. I had a problem with accepting Ben Affleck as Batman, although I believe Henry Cavil is the right Superman. The point is Jason Momoa is the right Aquaman.

Still, don’t limit Jason Momoa to just one movie. I’ve become more familiar with Jason Momoa’s work over the past year. He is an incredible actor with an amazing filmography. Conan the Barbarian with Arnold Schwarzenegger is an all-time favorite. I believe Jason Momoa did the remake justice.

I highly recommend Conan the Barbarian (2011) because it is one of Jason Momoa’s best movies. One man shouldn’t have all those muscles. But he works out hard in the gym. They say hard work pays off and Jason Momoa gets it.

Somehow, he finds a way to star in Hollywood’s biggest productions. Case in point: Game of Thrones. Ever since Game of Thrones, he has made a name for himself.

Did you know Jason Momoa is legally married to Lisa Bonet? That means Zoe Kravitz is his stepdaughter. Talk about a small world.

In closing, I wonder what’s next for Jason Momoa. Will he settle down as a legendary superhero? Or will he star in riskier and more challenging productions? We’ll see…

Why Avengers Is the Ultimate Brand


Why Avengers Is the Ultimate Brand

Last summer Avengers: Infinity War was released in theaters. I was lucky to watch the blockbuster movie. Avengers: Infinity War was probably the biggest and best movie of Summer 2018.

It had everything you could want in a film: action, romance, suspense, drama, and a little comedy. I highly recommend seeing any Avengers movie. Marvel does it the best.

Now, Robert Downey Jr. showed why he is time and time again the number 1 actor in the world. Plus, Scarlett Johansson shined bright like the diamond she is. And Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, and Chris Pratt proved why they have Hollywood’s favorite first name.

In a sense, Avengers: Infinity War was the ultimate movie. Moreover, Avengers is the ultimate brand because the movie franchise is comparable to Star Wars and Star Trek. In fact, I think it’s better than Star Trek.

Give the director kudos because managing all those actor’s egos must have been extremely challenging if not a nightmare. Also, the cinematography was on point. I loved all the characters. There was lots of color and excitement.

You see, Avengers goes beyond the movies. Like Star Wars, it is woven in the fabric of popular culture. It is worldwide appealing too. It is more than just America.

The genius behind Avengers, itself, is that the franchise is movies within a movie, TV within television and well-defined characters within themselves. In other words, you can count on your kids wanting to dress up as an Avenger on Halloween. There are so many choices. Doesn’t everybody want to be a superhero?

In closing, Hollywood is changing. The movies are more daring. It is not enough to merely follow the formula anymore. You’ve got to tweak the script and challenge the status quo.

Without question, Avengers set the bar high every time. All their movies are top notch quality. They create superior original entertainment.

Avengers: Infinity War reminded me of being a blend between X-Men Apocalypse and Days of Future Past. Avengers, as a Marvel brand, takes you on an adventure. What is more, the journey is a dream come true for comic book fans. That’s why Avengers is the ultimate brand.

Why You Should Watch Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee


Why You Should Watch Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee

Have you seen Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee? After much deliberation I decided to watch the collection on Netflix.

At first, I was on the fence about watching the show. I didn’t know if it was worth my time. However, something told me to give it a chance.

I love to be entertained. Entertainment is a great influencer on the world. And comedy is the great equalizer.

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee appeals to those who like comedy, cars, and coffee.

So, what’s it all about?

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is exactly what the name suggests. Comedians get in a car and get coffee. Moreover, they have fun, light, and laidback conversations on their way to drinking a cup of Joe together.

I’ve seen a ton of episodes and here is my take on the TV series. Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is unique to television because unique comedians drive around in unique cars and have unique experiences.

Right now, I’m watching the last episodes because they are more relevant. Eventually, I will get around to watching the first episodes.

So far I’ve seen Ellen DeGeneres, Tracy Morgan, Dave Chappelle, Zach Galifianakis, Brian Regan, and Dana Carvey. This show is turning me into a believer.

I believe Jerry Seinfeld is a genius. I expect this show to last forever. Much of the show is filmed in Los Angeles.

Jerry Seinfeld does all the driving. Netflix does all the filming. The giant comedian teamed up with the giant Hollywood conglomerate. Who’s next…Starbucks?

Comedians themselves are interesting characters. They have awfully good stories to tell. Their lives are observed under a microscope.

Comedians are creative creatures. These lively entertainers do what doctors can’t do in some cases. In a world of so much uncertainty and heartache, comedy helps sooth the pain and heal the wounds. Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is just what the world needs, and what the doctor ordered.

Migos Vs. Wu Tang Clan

Migos Vs. Wu Tang Clan

Let’s discuss new school vs. old school. Migos Vs. Wu Tang Clan is an interesting comparison. The Migos belong to the new edition and the Wu Tang Clan are original gangsters.

Both groups have similarly creative names and make unique music. Migos is short for amigos- the Spanish word for friends. And clan means a group of closely knit and interrelated families.

Who doesn’t like listening to Migos? These Hip-Hop artists have been active since 2008, but not until recently has their music topped the charts. Migos, consisting of Takeoff, Quavo, and Offset, are commercially successful and relevant. Their songs have been showcased by Spotify, Apple Music, and more. 

Who remembers their extremely popular iPhone commercial?
Migos are new school with an old school vibe. The Walk It Talk It music video generates good vibrations. Migos are modern-day Beach Boys if the surfer singers could rap.

Wu Tang Clan’s music was commercially successful and stays relevant. Google made the widely popular Shimmy song commercial a couple years ago. Moreover, C.R.E.A.M. (Cash Rules Everything Around Me) is Wu Tang Clan’s most famous song because money equates to success and relevancy. Still by no stretch of imagination- are they a one hit wonder.

Without question, Wu Tang Clan have made their mark on music history. Complex has complied a list of Wu Tang Clan’s 100 best songs. The rappers maintain a strong influence on a generation of music artists. Also, the band of brothers illustrate the importance of brotherhood.

Could you imagine a Migos and Wu Tang Clan collaboration? I’ve learned to not rule out anything. Plus, music is the common denominator.

Whoever Migos joins forces with, whether it’s Drake or Pusha-T, the group creates transformative music. Perhaps the difference between Migos and Wu Tang Clan are that Migos is mainstream and Wu Tang Clan is niche.
