This is how Metacritic describes this movie:

Starring: Ariana Grande, Cate Blanchett, Chris Evans, Gina Gershon, Jennifer Lawrence, Jonah Hill, Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Rylance, Matthew Perry, Melanie Lynskey, Meryl Streep, Ron Perlman, Timothée Chalamet.

Movie Facts:
Debuts on Netflix on December 24, 2021.

Summary: Kate Dibiasky (Jennifer Lawrence), an astronomy grad student, and her professor Dr. Randall Mindy (Leonardo DiCaprio) make an astounding discovery of a comet orbiting within the solar system. The problem — it’s on a direct collision course with Earth. The other problem? No one really seems to care. Turns out, warning mankind about a planet-killer the size of Mount Everest is an inconvenient fact to navigate. With the help of Dr. Oglethorpe (Rob Morgan), Kate and Randall embark on a media tour that takes them from the office of an indifferent President Orlean (Meryl Streep) and her sycophantic son and Chief of Staff, Jason (Jonah Hill), to the airwaves of The Daily Rip, an upbeat morning show hosted by Brie (Cate Blanchett) and Jack (Tyler Perry). With only six months until the comet makes impact, managing the 24-hour news cycle and gaining the attention of the social media obsessed public before it’s too late proves shockingly comical — what will it take to get the world to just look up?!

CC Looking For Something | An Event & Cate Blanchett At The BP Library

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day, and I was staying at a mostly glass house-like building with all of my family except for my brother CC’s family; but I am not sure if we were just staying there on vacation or if this was a rental or what it was exactly.

My brother CC had some of his friends over, I remember him talking about looking for a certain object, and I remember walking around looking for it as I tried to see how much privacy we had from the outside of the building.

A Seafood Restaurant And A Mutant Sneaking Into A Secret Military Base?

Source: IMDb

The end of this dream involved me and my brother GC being in a city, and we were on our way to a seafood restaurant.

I planned on buying a seafood platter, we possibly arrived at the seafood restaurant, but then we needed to leave somewhere before we could even order so I tried to decide if we should order our food and leave and come back to get the food later or if we should leave and then come back and order the food.

I was afraid that we would be gone too long if we ordered it first and that they would give the food to someone else or throw it away, but I possibly decided to order the food and then leave anyway because there were a lot of people and I did not want to have to wait again but I can not remember.

The dream jumped to something else even though I was still in the dream (I am not sure if I was seeing this in my mind or what happened exactly), it jumped to a scene of a woman with superpowers who was probably a mutant like in the X-Men franchise, and she seemed to be sneaking into a secret military base where there were experimental advanced aircraft et cetera (this was probably inspired by me watching episode 6 of Ancient Aliens (Season 13) last night).

The woman looked like a younger version of either Cate Blanchett or Tilda Swinton, I remember her sneaking into a hangar where there were some advanced aircraft, but then a younger version of Professor X (Charles Francis Xavier) sent a message to her telepathically either from the future or from the present or something.

Professor X felt or knew that the woman would likely be arrested or killed so he wanted to stop that, probably because she would have an important role to play in the future, and he knew or could see the older version of her who looked like an older Cate Blanchett or Tilda Swinton; and maybe he could see some possible futures involving this woman, and he wanted to help stop her from getting herself put in prison for a long time or forever or being killed because she had a lot of potential that would be wasted.

The woman heard his message in her mind but I am not sure if she was going to follow his advice of leaving the secret military base before she gets caught, and that is all that I can remember of this dream.

The end,

What is it?

The 2017 American superhero movie Thor: Ragnarok.

Teaser

Trailer

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok,” Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok–the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization–at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela.

But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger–the Incredible Hulk!

Final Thoughts

This movie was definitely made to be fun and comedic with some over-the-top action, it did not connect with me really so it is one of those movies that you watch and have a bit of fun but then mostly forget about, but I did laugh a few times and the characters were having fun.

The end,

Mystery On The Orient Express | Hercule Poirot | My Grandmother DE | A Video Game & Russell Tovey | Watching A Film With An Actress & Quentin Tarantino Invites Me To Dinner | A Lucid Dream & Almost Having A Wake Induced Lucid Dream (WILD)

I had an interesting night of dreams last night and I almost completed Seepurple’s lucid dream challenge last night, I did a reality check in my dream and I realized that I was dreaming but I tried to move too fast before relaxing first so that I could ask a dream character/the dream itself about the future/my future/the dream/myself/et cetera and so I woke up from the lucid dream accidentally because the dream became too unstable, and then I almost had a wake induced lucid dream (WILD) but I got a phone call about a job interview next week and so that woke me up right when I was about to have a WILD.

Dream 1

All that I can remember of the first dream is being inside of what looked like Walmart, I remember shopping, and I was mostly in the grocery section; and more things happened in the dream, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.
