Seen :Falling Inn Love; on Netflix yet?

Seen "Falling Inn Love" on Netflix yet? 

Enjoy New Zealand's beautiful scenery and sweet love story. The village and the people who lived there were delightful. It makes you want to live there. So what if it was somewhat predictable. The main characters were attractive and made you want to root for them. With a happy ending, the story was simple, entertaining, and satisfying. Overall, I enjoyed the film because it was devoid of profanity and swearing.

Gabriela Diaz's (Christina Milian) design firm in San Francisco closes the week after she and her boyfriend break up. She enters a contest to "Win an Inn" overlooking New Zealand's countryside after being inspired by a potent concoction of wine and Wi-Fi. She discovers The Bellbird Valley Farm, which has a crumbling facade, a floorboard-treading goat, and a meddling neighbor who covets the space, thousands of airline miles later.

She teams up with Jake Taylor (Adam Demos), a Kiwi contractor and volunteer firefighter who observes much of her city-girl culture shock, in order to renovate and sell the property quickly. She's hesitant to leave him, the inn, and the welcoming community that nurtured her creative side once the final fixtures are hung.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

 Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has already been in theaters for three days and has earned the Marvel Cinematic Universe's fourth highest opening weekend worldwide. The Benedict Cumberbatch-led film is a sequel to the 2016 film that introduced the MCU's first sorcerer.

In 2016, Doctor Strange joined the Marvel Film University and swiftly rose to prominence as one of the most prominent characters. In Avengers: Infinity War, he played a pivotal role, and in the final Spider-Man, he effectively supplanted Tony Stark as Peter's mentor.

 At the same time, we didn't learn anything, with the exception of the first film on Stephen Strange. He never did anything but react to what happened. After six years, the continuation of his own story is finally here, and with it comes the chance to say a little more about this - even by Marvel Cinematic Universe standards - unusual character.

The film is directed by Sam Raimi, who rose to prominence after starring alongside Tobey Maguire in the Spider-Man trilogy.

The concept of the multiverse"  is the second thing we can finally learn more about due to the new comic book. The well-known comic-book motif slowly crept into the MCU. Many fans expected the universe to provide a means to destroy Thanos before the release of Avengers: End Game, therefore speculation about him began before the film.

Although it did not happen, the "multiverse" was seen in Spider-Man: Homeless. Only here did this concept become an official part of the MCU, albeit only in the form of characters from alternate universes visiting the main one. The new Doctor Strange is the first Marvel film in which the main protagonists travel to alternate realms.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is set after the events of the previous comic Spider-Man: Homeless as well as the WandaVision series. Strangea has a bizarre, reoccurring nightmare, but she pays little heed to it. When Americas (Xochitl Gomez), the girl from his dream, appears in real life, everything changes. America has the capacity to roam freely between realities, which is why she is plagued by bizarre monsters attempting to revoke her power.

Wanda Maximoff, another extremely powerful superhero, will emerge from the efforts to resolve Strange's plight (Elizabeth Olsen). Those who have seen the trailers or at the very least the posters for the film have remarked that it looks different than Avengers: Endgame. The WandaVision series from last year expanded on her narrative.

For the first time, the MCU expects viewers to be familiar with not only the plots of prior films, but also the entire series. Otherwise, he'll have no idea how Wanda became Scarlet Witch, the character depicted in the upcoming film's posters. Wanda's intentions can only be understood if the audience is familiar with the series.

WandaVision is now officially a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As a result, it's not surprise that the series' events are linked to the film. There are nine half-hour to hourly episodes in the series. As a result, the overall viewing time is comparable to two medium-length Marvel films, which is not a significant time commitment.

However, it is no longer enough to see all of the Marvel pictures; we must also see the series if we are to completely comprehend what is happening in the new movie. In addition to WandaVision, Phase 4 of the MCU saw the release of the series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Hawkeye last year. Both include six pieces that are about hourly. This, along with VandaWision, is a significant amount of time to dedicate to the university. And the MCU is still growing with new movies.

He was always a fascinating protagonist.

Although Marvel University boasts a large number of superheroes, most of them fight in the same way. While someone fires energy blasts, more magical rays, and another throws lightning, the end result is usually devastation, super-powerful blows, and some iconic victory (or defeat).

In the instance of Doctor Strange, however, this is not the case. His battles have always been more unique. It's not all about space gates, mirrors, and other cool spells. Strange frequently manipulates space, time, and reality. His character brings something new to the MCU, which is especially evident in the new film Doctor Strange in a Multiverse of Madness. Strange must devise new strategies to deal with an adversary that is once again superior to him.

Even this, though, is not without flaws. Sam Raimi chose to give the film a minor scary feel while keeping it accessible to young audiences (officially in our country from the age of 12). On the screen, for example, we see Wanda or Strange, who resemble zombies but not to the extent that zombies should. Or witness ghosts that appear to be frightening but aren't. As a result, strange scenes startle a 12-year-old child while boring an adult.

Is it possible to be better than Spider-Man?

If you thought last year's Marvel movies were generally boring and unimaginative (and we agree), the new Strange will finally deliver.

The topic of whether he is better than the latest Spider-Man: Homeless is intriguing. We believe so. Although Spider-Man included a unique aspect in the form of actors from earlier Spider-Man films, it was otherwise a standard Marvel film in which numerous negatives had to be defeated.

Doctor Strange goes even further, offering a unique perspective on the entire universe and pushing it even further, making the "multiverse" a part of it.

Tom Cruise unveils the title of Mission: Impossible 7. And the trailer is there but not seen

 With the pandemic, making a film and bringing it to theaters has become a mission impossible . After numerous postponements , however, Mission Impossible 7 has a new launch date, even if not just around the corner: the theatrical release is in fact set for July 2023, in more than a year. And in addition to having a date, now finally the film has an official name, that is Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part 1 .

It was revealed by Tom Cruise through a video message broadcast on the occasion of CinemaCon, an industry event held in Los Angeles where film studios come together to show projects in progress and those ready for debut. The emphasis falls not so much on the "showdown", as on that "part 1", which refers to the eighth film in the series, whose filming is busy right now Cruise: the release is scheduled for 2024. The title, barring surprises, should therefore be in this case Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part 2.

A trailer for Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part 1 was also screened in the frame of CinemaCon , but at the moment it has not yet been released online : and therefore we must be content with the description of who has had the opportunity to see it. In the first scene there is the protagonist Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise, in fact) on a plane flying over a canyon in South Africa. The scene is accompanied by a mysterious voice that admonishes: " Your days of struggle for the greater good are over. You have to choose which side you are on".

Ethan Hunt, therefore, will be called upon to make a strong ethical choice. The other actors besides Cruise who appear on screen during the trailer are Ving Rhames, Rebecca Ferguson (with a blindfold covering one eye), Henry Czerny (a return from the first Mission: Impossible) and Vanessa Kirby.

The trailer, as we can imagine, is all about the spectacular action, which is the fundamental figure of the saga: daring escapes on foot, chases by motorbike but also (for the first time) on horseback, blows from orbi on running trains and the already famous stunt scene in which Cruise launches a Norway motorcycle off a cliff: a sequence that the actor called " by far the most dangerous thing I've done in my life ".
