Captain Marvel: Review

By Paul Anthony

D.C. first big hit was Wonder Woman for their DCEU and Ironically enough Marvel released their first woman led heroine film. Which marks the first film for Marvel Studios. Let’s disregard the Marvel film Elektra since it was a Fox’s film which completely bombed and in my eyes hurt the heroine genre but now we know things have changed since then.

We knew going into Avengers: EndGame that Captain Marvel would be the X-factor to fight Thanos, well at least that is what marvel seems to be making us believe. If that is truly the case which I believe is the case, they needed to build her up, which would make sense to have her film come out way beforehand instead of 7 weeks before Endgame. With that being said they needed this film to be good and lets say Marvel didn’t disappoint us.

Like many first movies in what will be a series, it was a origin movie of sorts. This may be played out, so Marvel had to make it interesting and they did exactly that. We get carol with her powers already and on the StarForce team, what we don’t see how she got her powers and joined the team. This created a little of a Mystery which helped the plot of the film. Now instead of wasting a whole film they made it into one scene it worked out well.

The acting was on par with the other Marvel film, they do a great job with casting, Brie Larson fits the mold and made the role all hers. She spent time getting into the shape and with the sarcasm and good heart it felt different but she wasn’t the only cast member to stand out, we had Samuel L. Jackson as a young Fury and Jude law and let’s not forget a rookie Agent Coulson played by Clark Gregg.

As I watched this film it did feel like Captain Marvel and Captain America were the same person and film both were weak but had the will to keep fighting the good fight and in the end the hard work paid off. If Captain Marvel is the X-Factor this film needed to show her off what she is fully capable of. They exactly did that, from the start she was not afraid of using her powers and as the movie went on she only got stronger and more confident. The effects for her power was spot on and even the hand to hand combat was good.

We knew this movie was going to be a hit and barely a week in the movie has gross over 450 million dollars and the numbers will continue to go up though April is looking like a tough month, so the film will need to make its money this month. In the end I am giving it four stars and recommend everyone to go see it!

Tampon Stunt Gone Wrong

By Paul Anthony

We all love Wrestling and we all know what it is about and how everything is planned out and predetermine. What makes wrestling so great is when the planned is executed it is such a great thing and its hard to tell if the stuff is scripted. However some stunts can go overboard or be down right gross. We now got to witness a stunt that was truly gross and that stunt was a tampon going into someone’s mouth.

No you didn’t misread that I did in fact say a tampon. Priscilla Kelly, who some will remember was in theĀ  WWE Mae Young Classic Tournament just last year which mind you she lost in the first round and that pretty much was it, once again the headlines claimed her to be a WWE star which is far from the truth so let’s not get it twisted, this has nothing to do with WWE. Anyway in a Match last month Kelly decided to shove what to be a bloody tampon in her opponent mouth. How do we know it was a tampon? Besides the fact she took it out of her crotch and treated it as a tampon, yes we have good evidence it was a tampon. Not long after the match the video went viral and it gave Kelly the fame she was seeking but as popular as she become, some people aren’t happy about it and rightfully so.

Both WWE and TNA have been giving the women’s wrestling the push they deserve and by having them main Event PPVs and WWE even did their own female PPV, the women have shown they don’t need to be eye candy material to put on a good show and have the fans behind them, so why didn’t Kelly factor this into her planning. Sure the crowd loved it and started to chant Holy Sh*t and you sick f*ck.

The fans who were there may have loved it but most of the wrestling community are pretty much disgusted by her stunt. Names like Gail Kim, Road Dog and Jim Ross are people who are against her and sure she has her supporter in Tommy Dreamer. Now this is the first time I have heard of her and I am sure this will take her career to new heights and get her more bookings because promoters love to draw crowds and right now all eyes are on her. As for her future in WWE well even though they are big leagues of sorts she probably doesn’t have a future with them but then again never say never. If Kelly is smart she will wise up and use the smart light to get better but we will see.
