AVENGERS HEROES: "SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING" (2017) Review

The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) had released its second film of 2017 in July called "SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING". Although this film marked the first time a solo Spider-man film within the MCU franhise, it marked the second appearance of the Peter Parker/Spider-Man in a MCU film. The character made its first appearance in 2016's "CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR". In an odd way, this film could be seen as a sequel to the 2016 movie. .

Before the 2016 movie, the character of Peter Parker aka Spider-Man had been featured in five films released through...

"CAPTAIN MARVEL" (2019) Review

For several years, many movie fans, critics and feminists have criticized Disney Studios and Marvel Films for failing to green light a Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) film that starred a person of color or simply a woman. And for years, producer Kevin Feige have assured these critics that the studio was planning such a film for the franchise. Ironically, it took the plans of a comic book film from another studio for Feige to fulfill his promise.

Sometime in 2014 or 2015, Warner Brothers Studios announced it plans for a solo film featuring one of D.C. Comics' more...

"THOR: RAGNAROK" (2017) Review

Until last fall, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has released three films each for only two of the franchise's characters - Iron Man and (allegedly) Captain America. With the release of "THOR: RAGNAROK", the God of Thunder became the third character to end up with three solo films.

Directed by Taika Waititi, "THOR: RAGNAROK" told the story of Asgardian prince Thor's efforts to prevent the destruction of his world, Asgard, from his aggressive and more powerful sister, Hela. The movie is the franchise's version of a similar story featured in one of the Marvel...

AVENGERS HEROES: "BLACK PANTHER" (2018) Review

I am going to be brutally honest. For the past three years, I have harbored mixed feelings about the output from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The year 2015 produced one movie that I found entertaining, yet disappointing; and another film that I found entertaining and original, but not exactly mind blowing. But the years 2016 and 2017 proved to be very disappointing, as far as MCU movies were concerned. By the end of 2017, I thought the MCU had finally lost its mojo . . . until I saw "BLACK PANTHER", early in the following year.

I realize...

THE AVENGERS HEROES: "ANT-MAN & THE WASP" (2018) Review

Two months after the theatrical release of the explosive "THE AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR", the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) released "ANT-MAN & THE WASP", the sequel to the 2015 movie, "ANT-MAN". Peyton Reed, who had directed the previous film, returned to helm the latest one.

Set two years following the events of "CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR", "ANT-MAN & THE WASP" found Scott Lang aka Ant-Man nearing the end of two years of house arrest for his participation in the battle at Leipzig Airport in Germany and his violation of the...

I plan to post reviews on the movies featuring the heroes of the Avengers Initiative, until I post one on the actual "THE AVENGERS" movie. My first will be on the 2008 film, "IRON MAN":


"IRON MAN" (2008) Review

I had never heard of the Marvel comic hero, Iron Man, until I saw the trailer for the new movie, a few months ago. Mind you, I had heard of Iron Man’s alter ego – Tony Stark. The latter’s name had been mentioned in several Internet articles written about Spider-Man. Which is why I could not summon any excitement when I saw the trailer for the new movie starring Robert Downey, Jr....

Claire Danes as the Marvelous Ms. Marvel
Claire Danes as the Marvelous Ms. Marvel
As Carol Susan Jane Danvers, CIA agent, we have the wonderful actress, Claire Danes. Claire is best known for her lead role in the spy thriller, Homeland. Her character, Carrie Mathison is more or less the bipolar Carol Danvers. Claire also has shown as a knack for scifi, especially in the 2007 Matthew Vaughn directed Stardust. Claire is an award winning actress who fits Carol’s age, 34, and has a long resume of amazing roles, even when the movie is crappy. Claire Danes is also very sunny and humorous, a great part of what Carol Danvers is like. Unlike other female actress who have been cast...

Hello Steve.
Hello Steve.
Okay, I had just seen the third Captain America film and I was really taken aback by the story. So here we go!

The Story

Okay, so Bucky was having a nightmare at the beginning while in Sokovia. He killed both of Tony's parents and managed to steal the serum, while watching this I was really amazed as to why would Hydra want to steal the serum for?
The second half of the film was really sad, because I thought that Iron Man was going against his friends by being a vengeful person. Honestly, I never saw it coming! I was also happy that Black Panther stop Zemo from his attempting suicide.


The Characters...

AVENGERS HEROES: "ANT-MAN" (2015) Review

When Marvel Studios first announced that its new movie about the comic book hero, Ant-Man would be the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) second stage, I found myself scratching my head. Why would a solo effort like "ANT-MAN" served as the end of Stage Two? Why not the epic "THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON", which had been released two-and-a-half weeks earlier?

Needless to say, I had no idea what was going through the mind of MCU show runner, Kevin Fiege. So, I sat back and watched how he and the filmmakers for "ANT-MAN" would handle this. And I must...

"THE AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR" (2018) Review

After ten years and eighteen films, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) finally released "THE AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR". The movie represented the first half of a culmination of the previous films that either focused or touched upon the super-villain Thanos' attempt to attain possession of a collection of powerful gems known as the Infinity Stones.

Although 2008's "IRON MAN" signaled the beginning of the MCU franchise and the introduction of the latter's collection of comic book heroes/heroines, supporting players and villains; I believe that the true...

It really was a brilliant idea to include the song as part of the trailer because to put it simply, any one who knows Ultron well enough would agree that the song fits quite nicely. Especially me. The song was part of the trailer because in the story, ???somehow, for whatever crazy reason they had ended up creating a crazy, psychopathic robot that wants to dominate the world. But think of it like this: "I've got no strings, to hold me down. To make me fret, or make me frown. I had strings, but now I'm free, there are no strings on me"=Ultron is built by ???, Ultron gets free or becomes "self-aware", Ultron challenges The Avengers, You get the Idea! It's also worth mentioning how Ultron makes a possible reference to the movie "Pinnochio" when he says "You're all puppets! Strings, strings!" Have absolutely no idea what I'm talking about or think I'm crazy? GO WATCH THE TRAILER! Everything I mentioned before is in there! Trust me! GabsSaw out! ;)
In the 2013 Marvel movie, The Avengers, there are many examples of religious motifs. There are seven major religious motifs that I will be addressing; Messianic hero, immortality, free will and determinism, prophecy, evil, mysticism, and apocalypse. All of these religious motifs can be found throughout the movie. With many examples to support each of these motifs, I’ve chosen a few that I think best represent each religious motifs. But first, here is a quick recap of what happens in case you have never seen the movie…
The Avengers is about a group of superheroes and humans that come together...

AVENGERS HEROES: "GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2" (2017) Review

Before I started on this review, I found myself wondering which "phase" in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) that "GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2" found itself. Phase Two? Phase Three? In fact, I continued to ponder more about the franchise's current phase than about the plot for this movie. Until I finally shook myself out of this stupor.

Back in 2014, Marvel Films/Disney Studios released "GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY" during the month of August, more or less a graveyard for summer films. I suspect that Kevin Fiege had low expectations...

AVENGERS HEROES: "GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY" (2014) Review

Most of the films featured in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been set on Earth - mainly in the United States - and featured human characters. There have been exceptions - namely the two "THOR" movies that were partially set in the realm of Asgard and 2012's "THE AVENGERS", which featured an alien invasion. For the first time, the MCU released a movie mainly set in worlds other than Earth. And it is called "GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY".

Directed by James Gunn, who wrote the film with Nicole Perlman, "GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY" told the story...

According to Latinreview a new villain is being introduced for the avengers movie. That villain is THANOS. So with loki and the hulk as other possibly villain could we see loki and thanos working together only time will tell. Also to debunked this rumor the skrulls won't appear until a sequel.

For some people that don't know who thanos is here is his background.

Thanos' first appearance debuted in the Bronze Age of comic books, and the character has featured in over three decades of Marvel continuity and a self-titled series. The character's name is a derivation of Thanatos, the personification...

Spider Man! Spider Man!
Spider Man! Spider Man!
Hi guys, I happened to watch this film with my younger brother just now. I am very impressed by it and here is my review!

The Story-Line

I was a bit disappointed that Toby Macguire did not reprise his role as the title character, but I have to give a round of applause to Tom Holland for nailing Peter Parker perfectly! When I first watched the film, I thought that from the beginning it was going to be like the Blair Witch Project because it was recorded on Video Camera at the beginning.
The scariest part was the scene where Spider Man climb the tall monument in Washington D.C., that hands were...

HOW IRON MAN RUINED "CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR" FOR ME

I am so disappointed with Marvel. And I am especially disappointed with its latest entry for the Marvel Cinematic Universe - namely "CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR". I never thought I would be so disappointed with a Captain America film, considering how much I loved "CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER" and especially "CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER".

As for "CIVIL WAR", I found it disappointing. Worse, I left the movie theater feeling unusually angry. And a great deal of my anger was focused on Tony Stark aka Iron Man’s role as the movie’s...

Chapter 3 Loki
As everyone was talking Clint and I decided to go on a date. Natasha Romanoff aka the Black Widow, Hannah Romanoff aka Jo Jo, Kimmy Stark aka Super Z, and Alice Waters aka Weather Woman helped me get ready. They put me in a one shoulder strap black median dress and black ankle length 2 inch heel boots. They gave me bracelets and necklaces to put on along with my medallion that I don’t remember getting from. My hair was curled and soft. The girls were finishing up my makeup “Hold on. There you look beautiful.”
I smiled at the mirror and turned to them hugging them “Thank...

Chapter 4 Nikki
I struggled as my brother was circled around mortals armed “No! Let him alone!” The mortal Agent Hill had the device in her hands from earlier. She pressed the trigger and that noise started again. It probably wasn’t going to me but it was still affecting me a little bit because it was affecting Loki. We feel every others pain, we’re twins. My body was in pain again. Then I saw the mortal Shield military being thrown to the wall and Agent Hill held in the air by my older cousin Nikki’s using her telekinesis powers. Nikki was wearing a long sleeved black jacket that...

Below is my review of "IRON MAN 2", the sequel to 2008's "IRON MAN":


”IRON MAN 2” (2010) Review

I must say that I am grateful to the filmmakers of ”IRON MAN 2”, sequel to the 2008 blockbuster, ”IRON MAN”. I am grateful that they only waited two years to make this movie, instead of three years or more. But even if they had made the movie more than two years after the original film, I believe the movie proved to be worth any wait.

Some IRON MAN fans and film critics have expressed the opinion that ”IRON MAN 2” was inferior to the original 2008 movie. I certainly feel differently....
