Funny Theories of Characters in Movies

Posted on by

With every successful and popular movie, there are always theories. Often times, fans come up with certain theories about some characters. For instance, fans had theories about Max in Fury Road. One theory was that he was actually the Feral Kid from The Road Warrior. The only thing is that there are a lot of pieces of evidence that go against this theory. One theory has recently been thrown around. This theory is that Cable is actually an older Wolverine. While at first glance, this theory might be rather strange, there have been comic stories where Cable was actually a future Wolverine.

 

In the X-Men movie universe, Wolverine has died in Logan. However, one thing that has been stated about the production of Logan is that the story takes place in a future time of an X-Men universe. Meaning that it is not necessarily a direct sequel to Days of Future Past. One thing that Marvel and X-Men are establishing is the idea of multiple universes. Therefore, Cable may very well be an older Wolverine in Deadpool. This can also explain his shorter stature than in the comics because Wolverine of the comics is supposed to be rather short unlike Hugh Jackman who stands at least 6’2″.

 

As of right now, there is no telling which direction they are going to go with the Marvel characters. A lot of people are saying that the version of Cable that appeared in Deadpool 2 is very close to the future Wolverine version. Also, Josh Brolin has the presence and the intensity to play a role as Wolverine. Either way, this is a very interesting theory that they may or may not explore in future films.

OSI Food Solutions: Make It Innovative

Posted on by

Professional foodservices offer a wide range of products and services. Just about every continent has a top-tier food provider, but the United States is home to one of the best. OSI Food Solutions is the world’s largest food processor, but it wasn’t always like this. The company started out as a small meat locker back in the early 1900s. It was family-owned and operated by the Kolschowski family, and Otto Kolschowski was its actual founder. During this particular time, the company focused on providing fresh meats to the public. As the decades past, the small meat locker had made a name for itself, and it began to grow at a considerable rate.

As of today, OSI Food Solutions work exclusively with numerous high-profile names, including Burger King, Yum, Starbucks, Subway, Pizza Hut and Papa John’s Pizza. Ray Kroc, former-CEO of McDonald’s, made a deal with the Kolschowski’s during the 1950s. OSI would become one of McDonald’s major meat suppliers. This relationship would continue to this very day. What kind of foods does OSI offer? The answer to this question is very simple. OSI Food Solution’s offer a plethora of foods such as fritters, pizza, soups, chili, cooked smoke sausage, cucumbers, onions, tomatoes, fresh dough products, flatbread, cheese, pasta, beef patties, meatloaf, meatballs, turkey products and many others.

In 2016, the company was presented with one of the industry’s most affluent awards. The Globe of Honor Award went to OSI Food Solutions because it demonstrated excellence in environmental management. This excellence extends from the board room to the shop’s floor. OSI was just one of about 18 companies that has won the award for 2016. In addition to that, OSI Food Solutions has won this award multiple times, including the years of 2013 and 2015. OSI Food Solutions has made it to the top and all that it has to do is maintain its dominance.

Why You Should Try High-Intensity Interval Training

Posted on by

A lack of time is one of the main reasons that people give for skipping their workouts. However, if you do high-intensity interval training, then you will be able to get more work done in less time. In fact, HIIT training allows you to get a full workout in less than 10 minutes.

There was a study done that compared people who did a traditional workout to people who did HIIT training. The people who did HIIT training would exercise at a high-intensity for one minute. After that, they would rest for one minute. They repeated this for 10 minutes.

The people who did a traditional workout pedaled for 45 minutes. The study authors found that people who engaged in HIIT training enjoyed their workout just as much as those who engaged in traditional exercise. HIIT workouts can be a struggle, but they are not necessarily more difficult than working out for a longer period of time.

Matthew Stork was one of the study authors. He has suggestions for people who want to make their HIIT workout more enjoyable. He recommends that people listen to music while they work out. Studies have shown that people who listen to enjoyable music while they work out are more likely to think positively about their exercise sessions.

Studies have also shown that people who are new to HIIT will enjoy it more than other new types of exercise. Matthew found that people who completed their HIIT training in the lab also completed it outside of the lab.

The Decisions Infinity War Writers Have Made and Decisions They Wish They Could’ve Made

Posted on by

Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFreely have stated that it was a challenge to write Infinity War for plenty of reasons. For one thing, they had a hard time working with the huge number of MacGuffins for the film. One thing that they have admitted was that it was hard enough to work with one MacGuffin. To have to deal with six of them brought forth a unique challenge for the screenwriters. They have eventually decided on what is known as a smash-and-grab approach for the film. Also, fans have noticed that Thanos already has one of the Infinity Stones at the start of the movie. For those that are looking for a reason, it is that the sequence that would’ve shown Thanos acquiring that stone would’ve done nothing to help the movie.

 

One other thing that the writers have revealed was that the original ending was much different. For one thing, the snap of the fingers was not meant for the ending of Infinity War. It was originally going to be saved for the next film. The original ending would’ve made it feel like too much of a cliffhanger. Therefore, the snap was moved to the end of Infinity War so that the film could feel like its own complete film. Avengers 4 is going to explore the consequences of the snap.

 

Had they gone with the original plan, the film wouldn’t have been anywhere near as good as the one that was released. Even though the film would’ve likely been a good film, it would not have had the effect that the final version had on the audience. Infinity War has turned out to be one complete emotional journey with the next film looking to be another complete emotional journey.

Exercise Reduces The Risk Of Heart Attack In Middle-Aged People

Posted on by

A new study done by the John Hopkins School of Medicine showed that middle-aged people who exercise can reduce the risk of heart failure by 33 percent. Researchers also found that people who do not exercise increase their risk of heart failure.

It is important to note that this was an observational study. The researchers did not examine the link between heart failure and exercise. They also stated that the results of the study do not necessarily prove that exercise prevents heart failure. However, there have been countless studies done to confirm that exercise can greatly reduce the risk of heart disease.

Experts recommend that people exercise at least 150 minutes per day. You do not have to go to the gym to get a great workout. You can go for a walk or put on some music and dance. You can also ride a bike. It is important to note that some exercise is better than no exercise at all.

Heart failure is a condition that affects 5 to 6 million people in this country. It occurs when the heart cannot pump enough blood to meet the body’s demands. There are several treatments available for heart failure that can reverse the condition or prevent it from worsening. This includes medication, surgery and lifestyle changes. In many cases, lifelong treatment is needed to manage heart failure.

High blood pressure, diabetes and the use of certain medications can increase the risk of heart disease. Sleep apnea can also increase the risk of heart disease.

When Studios Should Back Up and Let The Creative Team Work

Posted on by

There are plenty of bad movies being made to this day. A lot of them are very disappointing for reasons that should’ve been taken care of a long time ago. This reason is studio interference. One would think that with incidences like Alien 3, Blade Runner and other studio films that they would learn their lesson. However, as Solo: A Star Wars Story shows, this is not the case. There are still tons of films where studios barge in and mess with the production. They often do it for the most ridiculous of reasons. However, their decisions a lot of times tarnish what might’ve been a decent film.

 

With Alien 3, the studios have done a number on the film. What was released was a very disappointing follow up to Aliens. Then a little more than 10 years later, an assembly cut of the film was released, and many would agree that it is vastly superior to the theatrical release. As a matter of fact, it was on par with the first two films. A similar thing was said about Batman V Superman. The director’s cut was vastly superior to the theatrical release. Another fact to look at is that with some of the most successful films like The Dark Knight, the creative team was given free reign.

 

While some of the examples are strong indicators that a studio should back off and let the creative team handle the production of a film, there have been cases where studio suggestions might have actually improved the film. One example is Mad Max: Fury Road. The studio heads looked at an early cut of the film and liked what they saw. They then ordered reshoots for the film.

Trainer Is Honest About Fitness Journey

Posted on by

Getting in shape is a difficult task for many. However, a fitness trainer has some tips that will make this journey a lot easier. You will need to throw away your scale. Weighing yourself every day may seem like the best way to meet your goal. You may actually be setting yourself up for failure if you do this.

You may get frustrated if you do not lose weight as quickly as you like. You may also feel as though your self-worth is tied to the number on the scale. It is better for you to judge whether you are losing weight by seeing how your clothes fit. It is also important to remember that scales do not take into account your muscle tone, water weight and hormonal changes.

You also have to commit to working out. It can be difficult for you to squeeze a workout in your schedule when you so many things in your schedule. However, you have to make working out one of your top priorities.

There are several ways that you can do it. For example, instead of going to happy hour after work you out. You can also take a walk during your lunch break.

Most people want to work smarter instead of harder. However, if you want to get fit, then you will have to commit to doing both. You will also need to look at food as fuel and not your enemy. You do not have to completely eliminate sugar, fat or carbs from your diet.

Director Change Couldn’t Save Solo: It Probably Even Hurt It

Posted on by

Many fans are aware of the troubled production which Solo went through. They were also aware of the director changes that have been made. One of the interesting aspects of this story was that the directors who started on the film were responsible for the success of The Lego Movie and 22 Jump Street. Therefore, they were a logical choice to bring the character of Han Solo to life for his own solo outing. However, there were a lot of creative differences and other production troubles that occurred which has resulted in the firing of the directors and the replacement with Ron Howard.

 

Given that this was a last minute decision, Ron Howard had the task of reshooting almost the whole film. The result was a film that was very disappointing. This goes to show that when making films, it is important to make sure that everyone is on the same page. It is also important to avoid rushing the production. One thing that is very disappointing about this is that this is more common than one would like to admit. Other projects that have been messed up because of creative differences were Batman V Superman, Suicide Squad, and Justice League, with the director change happening with Justice League.

 

Solo has been released in theaters to disappointing reception. There might be talk about an alternate version that has been mostly shot with the original directors. However, Solo was probably never going to be a big time Star Wars film like the other films before it including Rogue One. Solo: A Star Wars Story is now playing in theaters with Star Wars Episode IX getting ready for filming.
