The Hobbit Character Profile: Tauriel

By Jake M.

Middle Earth, a world well known to fans of the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, features a vast variety of characters including elves, dwarves, humans, and hobbits. My favorite character is less well known to the average fan because she’s not written into the story in the books, however, moviegoers might recognize her name. Her name is Tauriel. She’s an elf that lives in the region known as Mirkwood which is part of the Woodland Realm. Her character role is well developed and empowering which is a fresh look for a series that is dominated by male characters.

She is introduced to us in The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug, the second film of the Hobbit Trilogy, after she rescues Bilbo Baggins and the dwarven company from the giant spiders of Mirkwood. Her story is largely based around a love triangle between Kili, one of the dwarves, and Legolas, the son of Thranduil, the King of the Woodland Realms. She first shows affection towards Kili while the Dwarves are imprisoned in the palace and will develop a deeper relationship with him after rescuing the Dwarves a second time and tending to Kili’s wounds. She is forbidden by Thranduil to have a relationship Kili because he is a Dwarf, which ends up pushing her closer in love with the dwarf. Legolas, who is also interested in Tauriel, develops an uneasy friendship with her, after he takes his father’s side. Aside from the love story, she is also a sharp shooter with a bow and master sword wielder. Though her story ends after Kili’s death in The Battle of the Five Armies, the final movie in the Hobbit Trilogy, she is a much needed character. The open-endedness of her story gives headway to potential fanfiction pieces for writers like me.

Batman: NINJA(Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review the newly released movie Batman: NINJA. This movie partially takes place in modern-day Gotham City while mostly taking place in Japan’s feudal era.

 

The heroes in this movie are Bruce Wayne/Batman (Vehicles: BatMobile/BatWing/BatCycle/BatArmor), Damian Wayne/Robin (Batman’s son), Tim Drake/Red Robin, Dick Grayson/Nightwing, Jason Todd/Red Hood, Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Alfred Pennyworth (Batman’s Butler).

 

The villains in this movie are Gorilla Grodd (Powers: Super-Genius Intellect/Mind Control), Harvey Dent/Two-Face (Crime Boss), Slade Joseph Wilson/Deathstroke (Assassin)(Weapons: Twin Pistols/Twin Katanas), Pamela Lillian Isley/Poison Ivy (Mother-Nature Incarnate)(Powers: Manipulation/Control any & all PlantLife), Oswald Chesterfield Cobblepot/The Penguin (Maestro of a million criminal Umbrellas)(Weapons: Weaponized Umbrellas), Antonio Diego/Bane (Assassin/Mercenary/Super-Soldier)(Powers: SuperHuman Strength/Extreme Resilience), Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel/Harley Quinn (Ex-Psychiatrist/Joker’s Right-Hand Henchwench)(Weapons: Pistol/Giant Mallet) and The Joker (the Clown Prince of Crime/Batman’s ArchEnemy)(Weapons: Joker Toxin “Laughing Gas”/Acid-Squirting Flowers/Million-Volt Hand Buzzer/Razor-Sharp Playing Cards).

 

In conclusion, I found this movie to show off Batman in Japanese Animation as well as at one of his most greatest & historically heroic moments to date “No PUN Intended”.

Inuyasha the Movie 3: Swords of the Honorable Ruler(Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review Inuyasha the Movie 3: Swords of the Honorable Ruler. The events of this movie takes place between episodes 136 & 137 of the Inuyasha TV series.

 

In this movie, we learn the complete details concerning the death of Inuyasha and Sesshomaru’s father Inu no Taisho as well as the fame and history behind Inu no Taisho’s swords Tessaiga and Tenseiga as well as So’unga which is exclusive to this movie alone.together they are known as the Swords of Supreme Conquest.

 

The three swords in question are as followed: Tessaiga-Sword of Man(This blade can fell a 100 enemies in one stroke), Tenseiga-Sword of Heaven (While this blade cannot harm the living, it can however kill the living dead, save a 100 lives in one sweep and heal/resurrect someone who has been killed most recently via a one-time deal) and last but not least, So’unga-Sword of Hell (This blade can open the gates of hell and summon a 100 dead souls as well as convert thosed felled by this blade into soulless walking dead) Also, unlike Tessaiga & Tenseiga, So’unga is in fact possessed by the spirit of an ancient, evil demon thereby serving as the movie’s antagonist.

 

The cast consists as followed: Inuyasha (Male)(Half-Demon)(Protagonist), Kagome (Female)(Human Priestess in Training), Shippo (Male)(Fox Demon), Sango (Female)(Demon Slayer), Miroku (Male)(Monk), Kirara (Female)(Two-Tailed Cat Demon), Totosai (Male)(Demon Swordsmith), Sesshomaru (Male)(Demon)(Inuyasha’s Older Brother) and Jaken (Male)(Demon Priest).

 

In conclusion, I found this movie to have key emotional scenes such as Inuyasha finally meeting his father Inu no Taisho for the first and last time. Also, this movie teaches us that when we humans have someone we must protect, does our strength & will grow exponentially.

Darkest Hour Movie Review

By Jake M.

During winter break my family and I saw the movie Darkest Hour (2017). The star of the film, Gary Oldman portrays British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. The film highlights key decisions Churchill must make, such as whether to go to war with Nazi Germany or negotiate, plus his handling of Dunkirk. The movie also focuses in on Churchill’s personality giving the audience a detailed look of who Churchill was outside of politics. It’s a history buff’s galore.

Churchill came into power during a tumultuous time with leaders like Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler carrying out ethnic genocide and European occupation. The prior Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain’s foreign policy of appeasement was failing and Winston Churchill was tasked with convincing parliament and the British citizens that a military campaign was the only way to win against European fascists. He also had to conduct a well organized rescue operation at Dunkirk.

Gary Oldman, the highly revered actor, is a household name with a vast variety of roles. Millennials know him best for his roles as Sirius Black in the Harry Potter Series and as Detective Gordon in the Dark Knight Trilogy. He also played a role in the 2014 film Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, directed by Matt Reeves. Older fans might recognize him from iconic 1990s films. Roles include: Lee Harvey Oswald in JFK (1991), title character in Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992) and Ivan Korshunov in Air Force One (1997). Oldman’s résumé speaks for itself and his role as Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour won him the academy award for best actor.

Darkest Hour offers something different for everyone. If you’re a history enthusiast you’ll definitely feel right at home and if you are a fan of Gary Oldman you won’t be disappointed. My biggest takeaway was the beautifully executed portrayal of Churchill and the costume design. I’d give the movie 10 stars.

Thor Ragnarok Review by David G.

Image result for thor ragnarok korg

Thor:Ragnarok was a Marvel movie that came out November 3rd. Thor:Ragnarok had numerous funny scenes that made me laugh but the funniest scene which was my personal favorite was the scene when Korg is seeing an illusion of Loki dissipating and his reaction is to charge at it, (nonchalantly) shouting “P1$$ OFF, GHOST!”
