Dunkirk Movie Preview

Dunkirk is an upcoming war film, written and co-produced by director Christopher Nolan. Set during World War II, it focuses on the true story of the 1940 Dunkirk evacuation. Nolan wrote the story with the intention of telling it from 3 perspectives, land, sea, and air. The producers made efforts to create suspense through the details, as the script contains little dialogue. Dunkirk is set for a July 21st 2017 release.

The main premise of this film focuses on Operation Dynamo and the efforts to evacuate the Allied soldiers from Britain, Belgium, Canada and France that were surrounded by the German Army on the beaches of Dunkirk in the early stages of WWII.

The film will star: Fionn Whitehead, Tom Hardy, Harry Styles, Tom Glynn-Carney, Jack Lowden, James D’Arcy, Barry Keoghan, Kenneth Branagh and Mark Rylance.

In my observation this movie appears to draw certain parallels to an older film called The Battle Of Britain. Not only in the fact that the events of the Dunkirk evacuation almost immediately precede the Battle Of Britain, but also that the two films seem to share a similar vibe as well. Perhaps Director Christopher Nolan drew inspiration from The Battle Of Britain, and used it as a point of reference for Dunkirk.

Spider-Man

Spider-man has been my favorite superhero since I was 11 years old.

He appeared as a comic book character in 1962 created by Stan Lee, the creator of the Avengers like Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, the Mighty Thor, and Captain America. Even the X-Men.

 Spider-man started out as a normal nerdy high school teenager named Peter Parker. He lived with his Aunt May and Uncle Ben growing up in Queens, after his parents died in a plane crash.

He had a difficult life fitting into high school, dealing with bullies like Flash Thompson and Peter’s family never had much money.

One day his life changes forever, he and the other students are on a field trip to a science lab for tech research. Once there, a spider that got exposed to gamma radiation came down and bites Peter.

At first he thought he was dying, but instead it gives him spider powers that make him a different person.

When he starts using his powers, he couldn’t handle it at all, he was selfish with it. He was reckless at the time.

Peter realizes that the spider that bit him was radioactive.

He developed web shooters that shoot out of his wrist to catch objects.

His Uncle Ben then teaches him lessons about responsibilities and tough choices by figuring things out and getting advice from a person or suggestions. Even inspiration. Uncle Ben told his nephew he was different from the world.

While he was looking through his magazine, Peter thought he could get money by using his powers. He read that anyone who stays and beats the wrestler in 3 minutes wins. He made a homemade costume and a mask to hide his face to go into the ring.

He won against the brute wrestler, but he got just a bit of the money. He was upset about it, he just wanted to have fame. He didn’t even bother stopping a burglar that robbed the fight promoter’s office. The police officers didn’t catch him on time.

They asked Peter why they let him go, he said “It’s not my problem. It’s yours.”

When he got back home and saw police cars surrounding his house. He learned that his uncle was shot and killed by a burglar who broke into his house.

Driven by vengeance, Peter decides take down the burglar by switching his old homemade costume to a new fancy costume. He traps him in the warehouse and beats him.

When he looked at his face, he realizes that the burglar was the same man who robbed the fight promoter’s office and killed his Uncle Ben. Peter restrains him in webs and the police took him away after.

Feeling guilty and responsible for letting a burglar loose and having his uncle dead, he finally learned what it means to be a man and decided to use those powers for good after hearing his uncle’s powerful words “With great power, comes great responsibility”.

And now the legend was born, Peter Parker took the name SPIDER-MAN.

Justice League(2017)(Preview)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to preview the upcoming 2017 movie Justice League.

This movie takes place months after the events of the movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

where Bruce Wayne(Batman) and Diana Prince(Wonder Woman) form a team of superpowered Meta-Humans

comprised of themselves plus Arthur Curry(Aquaman), Barry Allen(Flash) and Victor Stone(Cyborg)

to defend the Earth from the Apokoliptian General Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons as the Justice League.

General Steppenwolf seeks three MotherBoxes residing on Earth. One of which is currently merged with Cyborg,

both making up his physical form as well as giving him his cybernetic powers. MotherBoxes are powerful cubed Minicomputers So intelligent that they’re almost alive.

General Steppenwolf comes from the planet Apokolips, which is a dictatorial world brimming with FirePits

that is ruled by General Steppenwolf’s nephew known as the omnipotent Darkseid. In conclusion, this movie I believe will be as big a hit as the 2012 film: Marvel’s The Avengers and is due to IMAX theatres on November 17, 2017.
