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!!!

 

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???

Fun Fridays~~~

Today marks two weeks since I hit upload on my novel. Woot…Sales are stead at 1-2 a day and steady.  I cound this a victory. It’s a hard business to break through the reader barrier. So we shall see.

But I wanted to step away from business and discuss fun! We all need a break right? Here are just a few Jimmy Fallon Lip Sync battles to break up the monotonous of your day!

And BOOM Harry Potter can rap!!!

Z is for Zoe!!

Wrapping up

My month long journey of blogging from A to Z, my final post is about Zoe Saldana.

Center Stage was the first movie that I had ever seen Zoe in and knew she would be around for a long time. Not to mention she’s flawless!!

Then she was in Crossroads with Britney Spears and Taryn Manning. The movie sucked, but it was a rite of passage for anyone that grew up in the 2000’s.

Drumline followed this, where she again showed off her dancing abilities.

For me, I lost track of her and it wasn’t until she appeared in Star Trek that she resurfaced.  Great movie!

Her most notable role is Neytiri, an Avatar. The movie was amazing and full of cinematography firsts.

Since this, she’s been in Guardians of the Galaxy, which is a hilarious film about a band of misfits that are thrown together and make history errr….save history from destruction.  Great soundtrack as well!

Apparently she is working on 7 upcoming projects, can’t wait to see what’s in store.

S is for Saoirse and Scarlett

Both of these actresses are acting chameleons! They can be comedic, serious, depressing, and even mysterious. They have even taken risks which in most cases wound up in their favor in the end.

I first saw Saoirse Ronan within the hit film, The Lovely Bones. Have you seen it? It’s an equally if not more powerful book. It’s about a young girl who goes missing and it’s later discovered that she was killed by a neighbor. It brings to question the idea of life and death and the bridge that connects the two. Not to mention the cinematography skills are amazing in this film.

Then she busted outs onto the scene with the movie Hanna, which if you haven’t seen it, you should. It’s awesome, I hope they make a sequel. Also another fun fact is that the Chemical Brothers did the music for the entire film. It’s filled with action and twists and turns in the plot that leave the viewer guessing what is going to happen next.

Then she was in the movie The Host, which based off of the book written by Stephanie Meyer, you know that chick who wrote Twilight. It was a decent film, but I felt it was lacking something.

Moving on to great and talented Scarlett Johansen, seems to have been acting forever. Did you know she has a music album out?

The first movie I remember seeing her in was Lost in Translation with Bill Murray. Great movie, very interesting concept too. This was followed by The Girl with the Pearl Earring, which I do believe I saw first now that I think about it…Anywho she can play anything you throw as her.

Then she stared in a great family film entitles, We Bought a Zoo!! Amazing movie, I mean I think almost every movie Matt Damon is in is an instant his.

Then she became an instant hit with The Avengers movies, making appearances in Captain America’s films as well.

She played a controlling woman in the comedy Don Juan.

Most recently she played in this sci fi film about being able to access 100% of her brain. Lucy? It was alright…

What is your favorite film by these ladies?

R is for Robert

To infinity and beyond…no wait that’s Buzz Light Year.  Iron man would no doubt say something obnoxious and sarcastic like, “psssh..the moon, “ Okay this is super weak.  But you get the idea. Iron man is a complete jerk, with a big heart. That’s why Robert Downing Jr. is the perfect person to play him.

I’ll admit over the years he’s had his bad days and then super drugged haze days, but I am a firm believe that people can change. I mean the mans been acting since the 70’s!

I especially love him The Avengers, but I’m biased to Captain America.

Stepping away from his super hero persona, lets discuss his other roles. Such as the ass kicking Sherlock Holmes! I mean wow, he was pretty amazing in this role as well.

But I haven’t had a chance to check out his newest movie, The Judge. Any one see it? Is it good? It looked good.

P is for Paul

I’m referring to the comedic Paul Rudd.

“As If” if that doesn’t give you a hint, then you didn’t grow up in the 90’s.

I have probably watched this movie, oh about a thousand times or more.

He is one busy actor, appear and acting all over the place. I didn’t even recognize him in Romeo and Juliet. Did you?

He plays the guy Juliet’s parents want her to marry.

Flash Forward to the mid 2000’s, he made two great films. Our Idiot Brother and Wanderlust.

But my all time favorite film of his is This is 40! Hilarious film.
