Ronnie Coleman: The King

Yeah buddy!

A lot of people think of Arnold Schwarzenegger when it comes to bodybuilding, but Ronnie Coleman won My Olympia eight years in-a-row and earned the nickname “The King” as the best bodybuilder in history. He has bigger than anyone before him and everyone who has come after.

All the years of hard training and heavy weights took a toll on his body. It was hard to watch him hobbling around in this film.

If you’ve never watched Pumping Iron, watch that first.

Black Panther

Another fun movie from Marvel. With most of the action set in Africa it had a different and refreshing feel compared to their other movies. My favorite character was played by Danai Gurira, who you may know as Michonne from The Walking Dead.

Today I’m listening to the soundtrack on repeat.

Bright

Netflix really hyped this for the last month or two. I guess they had to when it is the most expensive movie they’ve produced.

I don’t think I’ve watched a movie with orcs, elves, and magic set in a modern-day location like Los Angeles. I enjoyed it and am glad to see they’ve already ordered a sequel.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

People’s reactions seem to be all over the map after watching The Last Jedi. I enjoyed it. It’s a really fun movie. I don’t remember the last time I watched a two and a half hour movie without feeling bored or uncomfortable at all. When I got in my car I remember looking at the clock and thinking it was off; I couldn’t have possibly been in the theater that long.

Everything you said about this movie is wrong. If you walked out of the movie disappointed, listen to this podcast. Hopefully it’ll help you appreciate the film a little more.

I think a key point they make is Star Wars is for kids. We’re grown up kids now, but there are new generations of children being introduced to this universe with each movie. We keep getting older, but there are always going to be children watching their first Star Wars film.
