After watching the first two episodes of this series, I can tell you one thing for sure. This series is the best in the Marvel Cinematic Universe hands down. Moon Knight is a very complex and exciting character. The fact that he obtained his power from an Egyptian moon god, in itself, is quite fascinating. When you add his two identities, Marc Spector and Steven Grant, it becomes even more intriguing. But what makes this character and series an absolute masterpiece is that each identity has it’s own superhero identity as well and they both are actually avatars of the moon god Khonshu. The comic is actually more mind-blowing than even I imagined, however, this adaptation of the source material has been done seamlessly. Oscar Isaac proves why he’s a great actor with every scene, especially, when you finally see him change into Marc for the first time. Ethan Hawke is a bit of a surprise addition to this series but, so far I like how they’ve expanded the role of Author Harrow. He was previously the avatar of Khonshu, but now appears to be some type of cult leader with the powers of the Egyptian goddess Ammit. Let’s just say that you truly have watch it to understand what’s going on here. And I cannot wait to watch the rest of this series!

My only complaint is there are some instances where the CGI could be a little better but other than that it’s a must see.

I give this series at 9/10 (4.5 out of 5 stars). Well Alright!

“Swan Song” Movie Review

Random Reviews by EJBJ

Swan Song is a 2021 American science fiction romantic drama film written and directed by Benjamin Cleary and produced by Mahershala Ali, Rebecca Bourke and Jonathan King. The film stars Ali, Naomie HarrisAwkwafinaGlenn Close, and Adam Beach.

Swan Song was released in select cinemas and on Apple TV+ on December 17, 2021.

When a loving husband and father Cameron Turner is diagnosed with a terminal illness, he is presented with the option of sparing his family grief by having him replaced with a clone. Turner is torn about whether to discuss the option with his wife.

This movie leaves a lot to the imagination, but what it does give you is more than enough to realize that this is a beautiful story with amazing actors. Awkwafina is hilarious as always. Naomie Harris is breathtaking in her role. Mahershala Ali’s performance as both Cameron and his clone Jack is simply one of the best performances in a science fiction romance, I’ve ever seen in my life. He even makes you forget that his choice to not inform his wife and son that he has a terminal illness and decided to clone himself is a moral and ethical dilemma in itself. You can see how conflicted he is by this choice, but by the end of the movie you realize why he did what he did. It showed that his love for his wife was quite literally everlasting.

Swan Song is a must see film and I highly recommend it if you’re a fan of science fiction, romance, and most of all Mahershala Ali.

I give this movie at 10/10 (5 out of 5 stars). Well Alright!

Universal Pictures released Nobody theatrically in the United States on March 26, 2021, and in the United Kingdom on June 9, 2021. The film has grossed $57 million worldwide and received generally positive reviews from critics, who praised the action and Odenkirk’s performance.

Bob Odenkirk as Hutch Mansell

This movie was an action-packed thrill ride. It was so unexpected but also fun to see Bob Odenkirk as an action star.  From what I understand the movie was pitched as John Wick as Bob Odenkirk and they absolutely delivered on this premise. Odenkirk really did do an amazing job selling the role.  He was believable as a deadly assassin posing as a mild-mannered family man. I really loved him in Breaking Bad as Saul Goodman. His comic timing and ability to transition to dramatic scenes and moments is top tier in my opinion. Nobody begins and ends with his performance as Hutch Mansell.  My only complaint with the film is that it didn’t include more of Hutch’s backstory with his brother and father played by RZA and Christopher Lloyd respectively.  I give this movie a 9/10 or (4.5 out of 5 stars). Well Alright!
