Kong: Skull Island was SO COOL!

So today I decided to drive to the cheap theater in Irvine to see a movie that already came out more than a couple months ago. That movie was Kong: Skull Island. I didn't have much interest in the movie because I never was interested in King Kong. And the first time monster franchise I ever got interested in were the Godzilla films. So I skipped Kong when it came to mainstream theaters. But when I realized that this film is second in the MonsterVerse that started with Godzilla 2014, I decided to go see it. And you know what, I was pleasantly surprised! I actually really enjoyed this movie. This movie is about a team of soldiers and scientists that go on an expedition to Skull Island, where King Kong rules and where lots of other monsters live. When the team gets split apart, they find an old World War II pilot that was stranded on the island for 30 years. and with his help, they try to find a way to reunite and then escape from the island. That's basically what the movie is

John Nelson Darby and the "Rapture Gospel"

So let me get this straight. Jesus is supposed to come again to take us out of the earth any day before a 7 year period of time known as the great tribulation begins, where the antichrist rules the whole world, creating a one world government. Then Jesus comes AGAIN to establish his earthly millenial kingdom. And after a thousand more years have passed, we get judged at the great white throne judgment, and then the new heavens and the new earth are created. Great! But there's one problem. That's not the biblical view! There, I said it! I don't believe in the pre-tribulation rapture viewpoint that has infiltrated Evangelical churches. And these churches still teach this today. *takes a deep breath* Alright, let me slow down and let's start at the beginning. I have plenty of gripes and issues with this viewpoint. This is a viewpoint that's known as Dispensational Premillennialism. You hear this view all the time from Evangelical Christians. I used to assume that i

Initial thoughts on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Guardians of the Galaxy is one of my favorite movies. It was one of the few Marvel movies I really enjoyed enough to want to watch it again and again. It had a good mix of lighthearted comedy and serious moments and it had an amazing story and characters. It was an all around great film. When I heard that a volume 2 of Guardians of the Galaxy was coming out, naturally, I got really excited for the film. I had the pleasure of seeing it at a luxury cinema since I thought it would be really worth it. So did it deliver? First I'll talk about the story. The story takes place where the first Guardians of the Galaxy left off. In this movie, the guardians of the galaxy are hired by a race called the Sovereign to guard their precious batteries. But then Rocket steals the batteries they were sent to guard, resulting in an all out space battle. After they escape, they discover Peter's father. I don't want to continue explaining the story since it will spoil a lot, but Peter's

Reviewing Jurassic World (Again!)

So back in January 2016 when I first started my YouTube channel, one of the first movies I ever reviewed was a movie called Jurassic World. I saw it the weekend it came out in the movie theaters and I just loved it so much. I went to go see it a few more times after that. I thought it was really cool and it made me love dinosaurs more than I ever did before. But let's analyze this movie and talk about it in more detail. In a nutshell, this movie was good from a visual and storytelling standpoint. I really loved the way the dinosaurs looked. It was always cool to see them on screen. Especially when action took place. But the action and dinosaurs weren't the only thing I enjoyed. I really enjoyed the characters too. The characters that stuck out to me the most was Chris Pratt's character, owen grady, and also Aunt Claire and the two kids, Zach and Gray. I really felt attached and connected to these characters. Like I could relate to them. The good messages in this movie was
