The King is Back: The Black Panther

Black Panther

It will be just less than a week before we go on judge the most awaited Avenger, the Black Panther.

From the trailer you can see the majestic Wakanda. Well we did see it from The Avengers: Age of Ultron movie, but more on the urban side of the kingdom. Now we are like in Asgard. Evidently we can see the technological advancement of Wakanda and it’s rich culture and majesty.

What excites me here are the two different Black Panther suits. A gold one and a violet one seems like vibranium-powered suit? Perhaps, maybe let’s see if this is explained in the movie. The detail of the suit is so awesome that only bad-ass-kicking feline would only wear. Also a notable appearance again by Klaw, the vibranium-obsessed scientist is in the movie (again) but only with one arm. That we all know it was amputated by Ultron in Age of Ultron.

Fans has really high hopes from this film that the bad-ass kitty will not disappoint us. Ok, DC Universe, your move!


Marvel Trailers: Cloak and Dagger

Cloak And Dagger

I think this is the first time I will have something to say about a trailer. I never did that it in an Avenger trailer or a DC Trailer which is more worth reviewing yet here I am.

What interests me with these two, is that they are the only superheroes that are connected at some point. In the comic books, Cloak is dependent on the light produced by Dagger. It interests me on how they would put or interpret the “hunger” issues of Cloak.

Tyrone (Cloak)  and Tandy (Dagger) were both runaways met in “stealing” incident. Later on, they became friends and inseparable since then. They got their powers from a drug, I am just not sure on how they got their powers on this new series.

These two are both underdogs compared to the glorious Iron Man, Hulk and Thor but hopefully they will have their own mark on the Marvel TV Universe.

The question is that will they merge with the existing Defenders’ series?

What do you think of this new tandem on TV?

The 2018 Post: It Is Not About Me

Guys, It’s 2018 what can I say, we all moving so fast, we are growing, learning under one sky. It just really kills me the fact that I am getting older and my daughter shoes are already size 7 and I am size 8. They are growing so fast!

Really, what is about this post? It says it’s not about me. It’s not about me, but about the world outside the “me” word. What is about being selfless? What is about service? These are the things I think about lately, things that are not really “me”. What can I do to others and given a situation would I do what needs to do for the people around me?

It came to me the realization during a mass, the priest preached,

“we are measured not to the good things we do but the things that we don’t”.

These words by the priest struck me that doing good is not enough. Given a situation that we did not do something about the people around us, then we are also committing something bad if not a sin.

Matthew 25:34-40

Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

Hate is not the opposite of love, it’s indifference. Sharing and service are the once I need to improve this year. I think more and more people need care and understanding. It is really a challenge to every individual, not just on those people active in religious community, but really it’s like a cancer in the society that we do not care anymore for our brothers and sisters.

This year, I pray to our Lord to have enough strength to extend more of my gifts to my brothers and sisters that are in need.

Have a blessed day to all.
