Thoughts about the MCU after Infinity Wars

Posted in entertainment, Random, Special posts by Fated Blue on May 3, 2018

Watched one of Pewd’s recent videos and he made a commentary on the MCU.

Pewds said it’s unbelievable that after almost 20 films, people are still getting excited over a new movie or a new character reveal. It’s unbelievable how people don’t notice that almost every movie is just a reskin of the previous ones. He is also frustrated how it affects the number of films he could watch during its screening, with almost every cinema showing just one movie for two weeks, forcing “other” fans to wait for the Blu Ray release of these other films.

And I agree.

Movie Review: The Avengers 2012

Posted in entertainment by Fated Blue on April 29, 2012

I had my doubts about this movie being awesome since most movies with a plethora of Hollywood stars don’t usually mix together. That didn’t escape this movie but it wasn’t really an issue since the whole story made up for it (and whopping 2.5 hours to boot!).

I’m not gonna go around and proclaim stuff I have no idea about. So let me just get this out of the way: I’m no fan of comics, Marvel or DC. It should go without saying that I am simply a guy that likes to watch superhero movies with all the action, SFX, CGI, and all the crazy powers I can only dream of having.

Despite my skipping “Thor” and “Captain America”, this movie was always in my movies-to-watch-before-the-world-ends-on-December-12-2012 list. I don’t exactly know why but it must be the fact that I enjoyed watching Robert Downey Jr.’s movies so much and I’m not just pertaining to his Iron Man movies. Plus, Scarlett Johansson is there and I really like her character as much as I like watching her act that character out. Nothing like a sexy assassin to boost up movie ratings.

It could be the curiosity of just how could ordinary people with abilities enhanced by mere mortal technology fight on par with gods. But as the movie progressed, it would appear that the gods of the Marvel universe aren’t really capable of displaying god-like omnipotency, save for a few select characters you’ll find in this link.

I’m not sure as how far the Marvel franchise is willing to go with this movie. The Marvel universe is simply too big even if you did isolate the franchise on the “Avengers” type of story line. But for starters, this movie was a good opening.

MOVIE REVIEW: Robin Hood 2010 – The beginning we all should’ve known

First things first: I watched this film right after I completed ALL the pre-employment requirements requested by my employer. I figured I deserve to watch a film to reward myself for all the efforts I exerted within the past 7 days.

I chose this film simply because it was a Russell Crowe movie. Not to mention him teaming up with Ridley Scott. If you don’t know how good their combination is, just look up the epic film “Gladiator” and you should be enlightened as to why I had a damn need to watch this.

The movie was about the story we all should’ve known: How Robinhood became the man he was before becoming the legend.

Summary: The movie’s story telling was great but needed more action. It can bore those who really looked forward to archers doing their archery and swordsmen doing their swordsmanship in battle based on the trailers shown. I actually was very satisfied with the film but I felt that had there been an extra 10-20 minutes more of action or at least 15 minutes less of story telling, this film would’ve been very big. Still, I was very happy to have watched such a strong film among others known for only their popularity.

Movie Review: Sherlock Holmes

The official movie poster

I am now a complete fan of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s “Sherlock Holmes” because of this film.

I have little to say about this film, some bad but mostly good. This review will be short.

Review:

I really liked watching this film. I found it witty, funny, and topped with a sense of adventure. It’s been a long time since I saw a detective movie (not to mention seen one in a theater). I never read any of the stories/books but I do know that Sherlock Holmes is the ideal detective one can know.

I liked the way the film touched on the science of magics and tricks back in the era of coal and steam. I also loved the way it adds the darkness of religion and the symbols it uses. Since I’m a fan of such occult subtleties, this was a big plus for me.

The movie was a must watch all in all with a certain problem that I think I’m not the only one suffering from: Robert Downey Jr.’s British accent.
