The Peanut Butter Falcon movie review by Sydney

A truly inspiring story , THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON is the story of Zak, a young man with Down syndrome, who runs away from a residential nursing home to achieve his dream of being a student at the professional wrestling school of his idol, The Salt Water Redneck. A unique turn of events pairs him on the road with Tyler, a small time outlaw on the run, who becomes Zak’s unlikely coach and ally. Together they embark on a wild adventure together and cross paths with Eleanor, a worker at the nursing home, who was charged with finding Zak and bringing him back there. But no one had ever asked Zak what he wanted to do, so he threw the car keys into the river and she was forced to go with them on a homemade raft down the river. Their journey was certainly wild. In my opinion, the movie should be 100 stars because it was a perfect example of the struggles some people face every day. One of the things that was so amazing about the movie was the fact that one of the actors had Down Syndrome, which made the movie even more fascinating.Image result for peanut butter falcon

I think there should be more opportunities in the movie,t.v. and music industries for people with challenges.  The movie offered a unique insight into the world of people with special challenges. There are many different kinds of people who don’t often get a chance to really be heard. If only people would stop being prejudiced and really listen, the world would be a better place.

Super Mario Bros. (Movie)(Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review the movie Super Mario Bros. This movie was first released on May 28, 1993.

 

In the beginning of the movie, the meteorite that hit the Earth 65 million years ago caused our reality to split into two separate, parallel dimensions. The first of the two dimensions is the one where we reside and the other one is where surviving dinosaurs in fact evolved into human forms reside (the dinosaur’s dimension is comprised of one city that is surrounded by miles of endless desert).

 

In this movie, Mario & Luigi (the Mario Brothers) travel to the dimension where the dinosaurs reside in order rescue Princess Daisy as well as defeat the evil Koopa (a T-Rex in human form) who intends to conquer the Mario Brothers’ dimensions as well as devolve the entire human race into monkeys.

 

The main cast of characters in this movie are Bob Hoskins as Mario,

John Leguizamo as Luigi,

Samantha Mathis as Princess Daisy and Dennis Hopper as President Koopa.

 

In conclusion, I found this movie to be a miraculous achievement in turning something as classic as a Super Mario video game into a live-action movie version of itself. Thus it goes to show you, if you in fact truly believe then anything is in fact possible.

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review the movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: Turtles in Time. This movie was first released on March 19, 1993.

 

The story-setting for this movie takes place two years after the events of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Secrets of the Ooze while mostly centering in Japan circa 1603 (Feudal Era).

 

In this movie, April O’Neil is unexpectedly pulled through time to Feudal Japan via an ancient scepter which the TMNT must now use to follow after her in order to bring her and themselves home. While in Feudal Japan, they assist a rebellion in their fight against the warmongering Daimyo, Lord Norinaga.

Mitsu (Human)(the Rebellion’s Leader),

Kenshin (Human)(Lord Norinaga’s son),

Lord Norinaga (Human)(Daimyo) and Walker (Human)(Main Villain).

 

In  conclusion, I found this movie to symbolize and enforce the concept that is Cultural Exchange to a chronologically “Cowabunga” celebration of “Turtle-Power” proportions.

Spider-Man: Far From Home {Movie Review: Spoiler Warning}

Image result for spider man far from home

This review will be a few spoilers:  if you haven’t seen the film, don’t read this review…if you saw the film, read the review.

 

I really enjoyed the film, I like that we get to see Peter moving forward with his life, even though that he misses Tony Stark/Iron Man and confessing his feelings to Michelle “MJ”. 

 

My favorite scenes that I did not expect is Quentin Beck aka Mysterio, who is a former employee of Stark Industries…it was revealed that Beck created B.A.R.F., a prototype system that was introduced in Captain America: Civil War and another character who encountered with Obadiah Stane from the first Iron Man, comes back, he works with Beck. the visual effects were stunning, the scene where Mysterio using the illusions to trap Peter, messing with his mind. One part in the illusion scene is when a Zombie Iron Man crawling towards Peter: that scene was a surprise and shocking.

 

There were a few moments in the film, the friendship between Peter and Ned was great: hope we get to see their friendship continue in the next film. The final battle was an amazing scene. 

 

2 scenes that was a surprise and a game-changer: Peter, MJ and the whole people of New York, watches the news report that featured a doctored footage recorded by Beck, during the battle of London. but that’s not all: the video was released by the controversial news website: The Daily Bugle.Net, the one and only…J. Jonah Jameson played by J.K. Simmons. Here’s the real blockbuster: Beck reveals Spider-Man’s secret identity, it had Peter in a mind blown shock.

 

This is the first time seeing J.K. Simmons’ J. Jonah Jameson in the MCU, hope we get to see more J. Jonah Jameson.

 

Another scene is that former S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury and former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill are revealed to be Skrull’ Talos and Skrull’ Soren, who has been impersonating the real Nick Fury and real Maria Hill, also it was revealed that the real Nick Fury is on ‘vacation’ on a Skrull spaceship.

 

After watching the movie. There’s a lot of questions to be answered is what will happen to Peter, now that the world knows he’s Spider-Man and whatever happened to the real Maria Hill, while the real Nick Fury is on a Skrull spaceship.

 

Could this mean that one of the characters are secretly a Skrull, but will find out in the upcoming Marvel films in the future.
