Movies centering around an apocalypse of some sort are a dime a dozen. Every year there’s always a handful of films that come out within this genre, as well as plenty of televisions shows spanning every network and streaming service. While there are standouts such as 28 Days Later, Mad Max: Fury Road, and The Walking Dead, nothing is particularly unique about these movies/tv shows anymore. So, how did 2011’s The Divide stack up? Spoilers ahead!
Due to being an impulsive person at times, I decided to see Thor: Ragnarok last night instead of waiting until Wednesday when schedule to see it with mom (sorry ma). I am thankful though that I get to see this marvelous film again, but it is an experience that needs to be seen again.
If I am being completely honest with myself, and it’s taken a while for me to be; the previous Thor movies were…subpar. Of course, the first movie was essentially the one that got me into the MCU. There had been Iron Man and that was great, but it was Tom Hiddleston’s performance as Loki that captured me. But, that was it. I always found myself fast forwarding to the Loki parts in the first one and The Dark World was….boring.
For some unknown reason, whenever I think of the film Wind River, I want to start singing ‘Moon River’ by Andy Williams. No idea why; it just happens. Wind River is a film by Taylor Sheridan, who is also responsible for such thrillers as Sicario and Hell or High Water. This latest film stars Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen, in very snowy Wyoming. The plot centers around the two attempting to solve the murder of a young woman on Wind River Indian Reservation.
