    Lots of folks that I know love Galaxy 2; a lot of them like it better than Galaxy 1, which I don't. Then again, different circles like different movies more or less. No worries.

    Movie #16 - Spider-Man: Homecoming

    Initial reaction: it was okay, probably would like it more if I was a Spider-Man fan - entertaining though

    Fave scene: Spider-Man talking to the suit lady, Iron Man ripping him a new one, scene with Donald Glover telling Spider-Man he needs to get better at that part of the job, scene in the car

    Holland did great I thought, Keaton too.

    Spider-Man has never been my thing so I definitely won’t be watching this again. But it was entertaining at least.

    I appreciated Peter’s unbridled enthusiasm for helping folks even if it got him into trouble. It was endearing.

    I did not see that twist coming so that was pretty interesting.

    Liked the diversity of the cast, which was refreshing.

    Next movie: Thor: Ragnarok (hear this is pretty funny, can’t wait)

    I wasn't a huge fan of The Winter Soldier either. People say it was great but it was just OK for me.

    Movie #17 - Thor: Ragnarok

    Initial reaction: Mixed feelings - was funny for sure but felt kinda disjointed/forced at times

    Fave scenes: Dr Strange messing with Thor by moving stuff around, the battle between Thor and Hulk, when Thor would throw rocks/items at Loki to see if he was a hologram

    Not gonna lie, I gasped when the sister crunched his hammer.

    Speaking of sister, where the F did that storyline come from? Is she in the comics or did the writers just pull her and her backstory out of their butts? If the latter, I thought that was kind of lame. And she had all of her soldiers in the basement just waiting to be revived? Cmon. And Odin waited until his deathbed to tell them?

    Loved the haircut on Thor.

    There were moments that were actually funny, and moments where I thought they tried a bit too hard to be funny.

    Loved seeing my boo Loki again. Dare I say that he actually did a good deed at the end? I saw him eye the blue cube when he was getting the horn thingy to put on the fire. I’m sure he took the blue cube, that weasel!

    Still love Heimdall.

    Super sad to see Asgard go up in flames. I hope Earth is ready for the them.

    Jeff Goldblum calling it “ass-place” and “ass-guard” and Thor getting all mad yelling back “ASGARD!” lol

    I was totally shocked to see Hulk and had no idea he was in this, so that was a cool surprise. Ruffalo did a great job with his scenes.

    Overall: Liked it cuz its Thor and Loki, but didn’t LOVE it.

    Next movie: Black Panther

    In the comics, Hela is Thor's niece and Loki's daughter. They never had a sister until 2014 when a Spawn supporting character named Angela was actually gifted to Marvel by co-creator Neil Gaiman and revealed to be a daughter of Odin who had been kidnapped as a child and brought up as an assassin.

    I can see why, it did have more of a family theme than the first. It was good in that way.

    So a bit of over sharing but my dad left before I was born. I really understood where Peter was coming from in the movie

    Movie #18 - Black Panther

    Initial reaction: Liked it!

    Fave scenes: First and second BP/Killmonger fight scenes, Okoye being a badass

    Very interesting to learn more about Wakanda and Black Panther history.

    Crazy watching TChalla get thrown over the cliff!

    I really felt for Killmonger in terms of his feelings for Wakanda. They never came back for him. They essentially created his radicalism. Killmonger is a great name btw (for a murderer hah).

    Loved the tech and visuals in this movie. The Blank Panther suit where it absorbs the energy? Freaking badass!

    Speaking of badass, Okoye is my new fave bad bitch. Nakia was cool too.

    I’m glad BP realized Wakanda had a duty to help others and to share their resources.

    Killmonger’s final line about wanting to be buried at sea with his ancestors so as to not be in chains was brutal emotionally.

    Next movie: Avengers: Infinity War (ohhhh snap, i think ish is about to get real!)
