First and Final Frames of TV Series

There have been some great TV shows over the last 25 or so years. A lot of us know how they ended but some of us may not remember how they began or vice versa. I’m not sure whether or not it was intentional but some of these shows contain a sense of duality when you compare how they began with how they ended. A vimeo user named Celia Gomez explored this in a video which compared the first and final shots of the greatest TV shows over the last 25 years or so and you’ll quickly notice how similar many of them actually are.Either watch it for that or for the memories.

Captain America: Civil War Clip *Spoilers*

Captain America: Civil War is coming and what more do I really have to say. I posted some clips to the film recently here, but fortunately enough for you, I’m not done. I have another clip for the film here featuring most of the members of Team Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) including Tony Stark/Iron Man, Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp), Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and T’Challa/Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) all taking on The Winter Soldier/Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan). While the previous clips I posted may or may not have been spoilers (I haven’t watched them because you can never be too safe), I don’t feel the same about this one because it is merely a fight scene and you should all not be surprised. For those who are still unsure, please continue to the next page.

Doctor Strange Teaser Trailer

Very exciting stuff since this trailer just premiered. I have to say that I am very excited for Doctor Strange and it is on my list most anticipated movies of 2016. I will say that I know little to nothing about the character other than he has mystical powers. The reason for my fascination happens to be the star of the film, Benedict Cumberbatch. He is one of my favorite actors and not one who I would usually associate with Marvel movies. I am curious about how he’ll handle this type of movie. The film also features other great actors who I would not associate with Marvel movies either including Tilda Swinton and Chiwetel Ejiofor. After watching the trailer, my excitement is justified and I am at least glad that it is coming relatively soon. Doctor Strange releases November 4th, 2016.

Captain America: Civil War Clip *Spoilers*

It’s so close now!! Captain America: Civil War is less than 3 weeks away. If would like to read about anything I’ve posted in the past about Civil War, click here. Since we are getting closer to the release date, more content is being released where today, a 50-second clip of the movie was released. I haven’t watched it (just copied and pasted) so I can’t say whether or not it contains spoilers. This clip features the Avengers debating whether or not they should sign the Sokovia Accords and  surrender their right to choose which conflicts they participate in. While Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) is in favor of this, Captain America (Chris Evans) is still apprehensive about being controlled thus putting the team on opposite sides. Because of its potential spoiler nature, please continue to the next page to see it.
