Tolkein Movie Shows Horrors of War

The Tolkien movie is based on of the life of the great author J.R.R Tolkien and his experiences that led him to write the Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit. It is a mix of real life and fantasy. It describes his formative years leading up to his involvement in World War One. He died in 1973, coincidentally the same year as Pablo Picasso. It describes his friendship with C.S Lewis, the author of The Chronicles Of Narnia. It also shows his experience at war and it blends fantasy elements into the real world battles, like dragons bellowing fire, knights in armor, and orcs. This movie gives a new deep understanding of his life as a whole. J.R.R Tolkien said that he gained the inspiration for his books from going to war in World War One and the horrors that accompanied it. I am hoping to watch this movie…

Breaking Bad Sequel In the Works?

Breaking Bad is considered by many to be one of the best TV shows of all time, and with the series ending almost six years ago in 2013 it is no surprise that many fans have been left begging for more. And the fans have gotten more… kind of. Currently a spin off show named ‘Better Call Saul,” focusing on Walter and Jessie’s lawyer six years before he meets them is currently in its fourth season. The problem is with “Better Call Saul” is it’s not a true prequel or sequel, it’s just a spin-off. If there was a prequel, there’s not much room to work with since Walter was just nerd and a chemistry teacher, and Jesse was just a low-level drug dealer struggling with addiction before he meet Walter. But now fans have some hope. Recently Aaron Paul (Jesse Pinkman) has confirmed that a sequel movie is in…
