Captain America: Civil War

The Avengers have really captured the group superhero fighting!!

The storyline was great, the action was even better.

In this installment of the Captain America we begin with the team at odds over signing a document that would prevent the from acting on impulses to fight evil. This comes about when innocent civilians end up dying.

 

Okay about his…hello how many innocent lives have been lost in the last ten movies the Marvel? Its only now an issue when a prominent figure happens to die…..

Adding to this is the realization that Buckey is alive and still a threat…or is he?

The Captain feels an obligation to keep his friend safe and this in turn splits the Avengers….and a civil war ensues!!

All that aside..we meet some new crime fighting heroes!!! Like Black Panther and Spiderman. Yes Spiderman is back….and he’s a different character!! A younger kid that is reminiscent of Tony Stark….

Trailer

Its a great movie!!!

 

D is for David!!!

This past year we lost a legend who took risks with his music, acting, and even in his personal life.

I had the pleasure of watching and enjoying the Labyrinth in my childhood. If you haven’t seen it, you need to. I can watch this movie anytime….and the music …his voice gets stuck in my head!! He owned the King of the Goblins!! Here’s my favorite song.

Then he resurfaced in my life in the 90’s with Nirvana’s remake of his song, The Man who sold the World….made me remember all the work he’s done in his life.

 

I know it’s short, but I hope you enjoyed a trip down memory lane!!

Star Wars, the new one

Fear my Jedi Powers bitches!

This pretty much sums it up. There is an article floating around about how the main character Rey could easily have been replaced with a boy. What are your thoughts? I haven’t read the article just a comment one of my friends left. It made me think about the film. They are right. There are only a few spots where it would be awkward. I am not going to say much about that…I am not into spoiling movies, I hope I don’t

So anyway, it was a great film, better than I had imagined. I had to force myself to watch the three original movies and the three new films  liking the third one because it filled in the missing gaps, as to why Vader became the way he did and Leia and Luke were separated.

This new installment fits right in. I enjoyed it. Perched on the edge of my seat in shock, excitement, and happiness. Familiar faces brought a smile to my face, although I was a bit saddened that I didn’t see any Ewoks, the wookie sufficed.

It’s a great movie and I have to admit I was petrified when I heard they were going to make another Star Wars. Equally as scary was learning that Disney now owned the rights…YIKES. Although I have to point out that here lately Disney films/ pixar have taken on a more realistic point of view…I just didn’t want the character to become lost or cartoonish…

Han’s Solo…Prince Leia, Luke, and the new Vader, who got his but whooped by his ….oppssee almost let it out…Anywho…it’s going to make for an interesting next two films. I can’t wait. I want them to come out like…NOW!!!

What did you think?

And what’s up with there not being any Rey toys?? I would think Matel would be all over that shit!!

Oldies but Goodies

Did you know that Kevin Spacey is a crooner?

How awesome is that? Okay I am sure I knew this somewhere in my memory, but just recently I have fallen into this Dean Martin, Cole Porter, and Frank Sinatra kick at work. It reminds me to relax and remember the good things in life. It wasn’t that life wasn’t busy back then. It was, but people were different. I guess in some sense their world was dived for them and they just merely went thru the motions. Now there’s no decision made for you. I mean you still have the basics….like if you a minor you go to school and don’t drink, stuff like that. What I am talking about it is more of the social constructs. They are a lot looser than they were back then.

I hope that makes sense.

Enjoy some Kevin Spacey…as he takes us on a trip…By The Sea

Catching Fire…review

So when Catching Fire came out, I was mad at Katniss for the way she was treating Peeta, just as I was in the book. Here was a guy who put everything on the line, including his heart to fight for this chick. A chick who makes it clear that she can take care of herself.

I was pissed that the game maker had decided to do another hunger games with the victors. Talk about a slap in the face. It was brutal and mean. I understand the logic behind President Snow, he wanted to get rid of her, but had to be tactful about it. Killing her would just piss off a bunch of people. So why not make a game of it.

That’s what he did. But again there were plans at play that he didn’t know about. He was outsmarted again and Katniss was freed and Peeta sacrificed to the Capital. Anyone knows that in any great love story there will be a plot twists that keep us on our toes.

What I would like to point out is that even thought I had read the book and knew what was going to happen, I was still shocked to see it played out. It hit another part of my psyche. If a book made movie is done right it will illicit this kind of response.

So when the ending credits ran, I was again anxious to see the next installments.

The Hunger Games: Review

When I first heard that Jennifer Lawrence was cast as Katniss Everdeen I didn’t see it. I had known that Lawrence was used to playing bad ass girl characters, with her role in The Poker House, and Winter’s Bone. She is tough and a damn good actress. I was excited to see how things turned out. After the movie I remember feeling giddy with excitement. I can’t wait for the next movie to come out. Not only was her part good, but the role of Peeta Malark was casted well with Josh Hutchinson. Over all I gave it a five out of five. Art of me wishes that there was more violence and gore, like the book, but I understand why the directors decided to go that route. It’s so they could get more viewers without having to have the added drag of R ratings.

That being said, I don’t feel that the story is appropriate for grade school children. I mean it’s just too much, they don’t need that. Let them read Charlotte’s Web or The Box car Children. No need to bring in blood and gore, they get that enough at home.

The Avengers:Ultron, Spoilers!

I was not dissapointed in this installment of the Avengers. My favorite character temains to be Captian America! I thought Black Widow was gonna hook up with the Captian not the Hulk. 

I was so glad that Eagle Eye didn’t get killed. I mean he has all those kids!! I was sad to see the speedy guy die, but glad that his sister didnt die! 

I enjoyed the snide comments ans how easily it was to break apart the tight knot group! I enjoyed the action sequences, but they looked more like a video game at the beginning. 

Overall I give it a 5/5! What about you???
