Posted in entertainment by Fated Blue on November 20, 2017

Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, Suicide SquadWonder Woman, now we have the fifth installment in the current DCEU in Justice League.

868376

Gotta be honest with you, I completely shut off everything about the film. Trailers, interviews, ads, early reviews, EVERYTHING. I didn’t want to be spoiled, I didn’t want to expect anything except a superhero movie with Batman and Wonder Woman in it.

And I got it.

Book Review: Firebird Trilogy by Claudia Gray

Posted in entertainment by Fated Blue on November 19, 2017

Cover Firebird Trilogy

It took me months to get to and finish both Ten Thousand Skies Above You and A Million World With You (Firebird #2 and #3 respectively) because me trying to balance both being a freelance writer and gamer just didn’t leave a lot of time for book reading (much to my shame).

Anyway, I will keep this review as brief and spoiler-free as possible. If you want a quick summary, I’m definitely recommending the trilogy to Sci-Fi fans who don’t mind cheesy romance. I like romance and all, but sometimes it gets too cheesy and if it wasn’t for Claudia Gray’s style of writing – simple but not lazy – I would’ve quit on this series.

And oh yeah, praise the cover designer or illustrator of the series! One of the most eye-candy books I’ve ever owned!

Movie Review: Wonder Woman 2017 – “Best DC Film Since Nolan’s Dark Knight”

Posted in entertainment by Fated Blue on June 3, 2017

I watched this film as soon as the nearest theatre allowed me to watch it and I loved it.

I’ve been hyped since Batman V Superman and right now I’m telling you: Wonder Woman is the best DC film since Nolan’s Dark Knight.

Right now I’m giving it a solid 9.5/10.

9.5 out of 10 is the highest grade I’ve given any DC film since Nolan’s Dark Knight.

For the current DCEU movies, I gave MoS a 6, I didn’t think BvS was crap so I gave it a 7, and Suicide Squad, 5.

Movie Review: LOGAN (2017)

Book Review: Library of Souls (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children #3)

Posted in entertainment by Fated Blue on October 10, 2016

Library of Souls(This is a late post as I’ve finished the book since September first week)

(Click the links for my reviews on books 1 and 2)

The thing I like about Ransom Riggs’ Peculiar series is how he manages to introduce a familiar story without making the reader liken it too much to something else. While his series received multiple praises and even got commended for being “the next Harry Potter”, you can’t help but be thankful for the author’s original take on what a peculiar gang of kids would do if they had weird powers.

I liked books 1 and 2 so it went without saying my expectations from the last of the trilogy would be pretty high. I now realize I expected a little too much.

Movie Review: Suicide Squad

Posted in entertainment by Fated Blue on August 7, 2016

Suicide_Squad_Wallpaper_1680x1050Batman v Superman started the franchise this year and it got pretty mixed reviews. Critics didn’t like it but fans say critics were too harsh. I reviewed it and personally, I liked it. Now comes Suicide Squad, the franchise’s first villains-turned-hero film ala Deadpool (well, technically Deadpool’s an antihero).

Like a curse, Suicide Squad met its own BvS critics. Fans reacted and even went on as to petition the shutting down of a popular film-review website. Fans like me weren’t deterred so I went ahead and formed my own opinion about the film and here is my review.

Movie Review: Captain America – Civil War

Posted in entertainment by Fated Blue on May 22, 2016

Civil War movie

I reviewed Batman v Superman last time and I got two scores for the normal fan and the comic book fan.

Anyway, I’m into the whole Avengers bandwagon thing now since I’m one of those normal fans who are looking forward to how it all ends. I already watched the Iron Man movies, the Cap A movies, and of course, the two Avengers films. I also watched Guardians of the Galaxy but I skipped Thor, Ant Man (heard it was cool/a B+ movie), and will be skipping Dr. Strange despite him possibly having another infinity stone.

Again, I’m not a total fan of Marvel or any of its franchise. I’m not even really into DC myself save for Batman. So this review is just what a casual MCU fan thinks of the movie.

This is a pretty late review as I watched it last May 1. Too much time writing stuff for my website and for my job. It’s also mostly spoiler free except #2. (more…)
