THIS IS A SPOILER-FREE Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan REVIEW. SO GO AHEAD COMFORTABLY!

The latest series by Amazon Prime Video, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan is here now, for a while, since it premiered with its first season, last month. Starring John Krasinski (A Quiet Place) as a CIA operative who gets on a mission to stop a terror activity, the show offers a different approach to the character of Jack Ryan, one of the famous characters by Tom Clancy, who was a famous American novelist.

It’s the sixth live-adaptation of Jack Ryan and in the past, actors like Harrison Ford and Alec Baldwin have portrayed the role in the 90s.

Though the episodes in the first season of the show are directed by different people, the main theme and story keep you hooked with the characters.

Especially, John Krasinski, who plays the title character shines here too, after mesmerizing everyone with his exceptional performance both as an actor and director in this year’s early release, A Quiet Place.

Krasinski knows how to hold both the innocence and brave emotions, in his character, while dealing with challenging situations going through the plot. He has a thing of his own which separates him from previous portrayals of Jack Ryan by actors like Harrison Ford and Alec Baldwin.

With each episode you see him grow as a person and as a responsible part of his organization too, who is an analyst initially but turns into a fighter, soldier at the end.

Along with Krasinski, actor Wendell Pierce, who plays James Greer, makes the story even more interesting with his own short tale and his hardships in life. He makes a strong impact in many of the scenes with Krasinski when he tries to teach him helpful lessons. At first, there is a tension going on among the two, but then they get to know each other when being sent on a mission together-their bond catches your interest.

Other than the ‘two good men’, the bad guy, that is, Suleiman, played by actor Ali Suliman, is also compelling and leaves his own impression as one of the better villains in any show, in the recent years.

His own personal sorrows and tragic backstory keeps the viewer both with him and against him. That’s a good thing about any villain in a movie, TV show, or a web series-he should be able to make you empathize with his actions and ideology.

The show keeps it as simple as possible and thus, the complications of other supporting characters are less too. Still, Abbie Cornish (playing as Doctor Cathy), Dina Shihabi (playing Suleiman’s wife, Hani) also have an important part which helps in the progression of the story.

As is already mentioned above, the episodes are directed not one but various people, yet your involvement remains intact in Jack Ryan’s missions and how he tackles each danger with his wit, intellect, and smartness.

Yes, there are problems with the show which can be seen mainly in character development, especially towards the end of the season.

Overall, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan is a fresh take of a character who has been seen multiple times in the past. But the way this one takes it with simplicity and gripping story building is great to watch.

WATCH: The Curse of La Llorona Trailer will give you shivers

Warner Bros. Pictures has just recently released the official trailer for their new horror flick, The Curse of La Llorona. The film is based on a ‘weeping woman’, as one character calls her in the trailer, La Llorona, who haunts small children. And the trailer does succeed in giving you shivers on some moments. And for those who are thinking otherwise, this movie is not related to The Conjuring universe. Just because it’s distributed by Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema and produced by James Wan.

But still, nothing official has been revealed regarding its association with James Wan’s The Conjuring series. It may or may not be connected. But its timeline and story setting are very similar to that of other Conjuring films, like Annabelle. The Curse of La Llorona is based in the year 1973, in Log Angeles.

Who knows if later on, it’s revealed that this one is, in fact, another entry into the blockbuster franchise established by Wan, since 2013. There have been 5 movies in total so far in the horror series, with the last one being The Nun, which was released last month, in September, and became the biggest grossing film in Conjuring universe ever-despite not being very good at reviews. It was all purely due to the tag of being a part of that franchise.

Well, The Curse of La Llorona movie is directed by Michael Chaves and stars Linda Cardellini, Patricia Velasquez, Tony Amendola, Marisol Ramirez, Sean Patrick, and Raymond Cruz in crucial roles.

The film will be releasing next year, on April 19 2019.

Captain Marvel now gets a new origin story in comics ahead of the big-screen debut!

Captain Marvel now gets a new origin story in comics ahead of the big-screen debut!

The orthodox method of superhero movies adapting stories from their comics’ counterparts has now become a thing of the past. Because now, comics are adapting their stories-and even changing the existing ones-to cater to the storylines of films based on them. Another recent example of this is the Captain Marvel film under MCU, by Marvel Studios. Previously, Nick Fury’s look and story was also changed in the official comics after his big-screen appearances in MCU movies.

Marvel Comics has officially changed the origin story of Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel in the comics prior to the MCU flick’s theatrical debut next year.

If you don’t know anything about Captain Marvel’s origin, anyway, then you must make yourself a bit acquainted with original story.

Originally, going by the comics (since 40 years), Carol gains her powers from the Psyche-Magnitron device, that exploded and made Carol’s DNA fuse with that of Mar-Vell’s.

But in the latest fourth issue of the Life of Captain Marvel, it’s been totally altered by comic book writers Margaret Stohl, Carlos Pacheco, and Erica D’ Urso.

SPOILERS AHEAD: IT’S RELATED TO CAPTAIN MARVEL FILM

The Life of Captain Marvel’s fourth issue reveals that Carol’s mother, Marie Danvers, is a member of the alien race, Kree. Which means that Carol is a Kree-human hybrid. And when the psyche-magnitron went off, it activated her abilities. But here, her DNA didn’t fuse with Mar-Vell’s, implying that she did not receive her superhuman powers from a man. They were there inside her all this long, being received from her mother, which got triggered after the explosion.

Marie herself explains in the new comic, that Carol’s powers are “not borrowed. Not a gift. Not an accident”. Further, the comic also reveals that Marie’s name is actually Mari-Ell and Carol’s name is in fact, Car-Ell.

So, this new change will be seen in the movie for sure.

Captain Marvel has been teased by Marvel Studios’s head Kevin Feige, as the most powerful superhero in the MCU history so far. And it’s okay, in a logical sense, if some changes are done for making the story slightly much better. Because what’s the relevance of adapting a comic book into a movie if the same plot is shown on the big-screen too?

Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, Captain Marvel-the 21st entry into the MCU-will be releasing on March 8th 2019.

If you haven’t watched the official first teaser trailer for the movie yet, you can watch it below.
