#4/13 of my Marvel Movie Challenge. I must be really grateful to Marvel because for some reason, they always release Marvel movies a week earlier here in Asia. Luckily, I was able to watch the third installment of Captain America, namely, Civil War, last April 29. Just a run-through of the story: The Avengers’ actions have already caught the attention of the government and decided that they should be watched. The government presents an “Accords” that if the Avengers sign this, they would be under the government’s control. Captain America/ Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is not willing as this takes away their freedom and thinks of “What if they needed to be in a place and the government does not allow them?”. On the other hand, Iron Man/ Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) agrees with the government. This forms the Avengers to divide into factions: Team Cap and Team Iron Man.

Most probably you guys must have watched Deadpool and Batman v Superman right now, but I’ll still post my review of the two films. With Deadpool’s comedic side and BvS’ sort-of dark side, there is no doubt in saying that Marvel and DC are definitely two contrasting worlds. Just because one is opposite from the other doesn’t mean we have to pick which is better. Most movie critics rigorously compare the two franchises from each other, but why favor one if you could just love both? Yes, with that being said I will be writing about my positive insights on these two films, my love for Marvel and DC, and as well as my anticipation for Civil War!!
5/10 of my Disney Movie Challenge. 3/10 of my Marvel Movie Challenge. Okay, this post was supposed to be made like 3 months ago. But I have been so busy, as I said in my previous post. However, I am committed to my movie challenge, and for the very few who haven’t watched this movie yet, then hopefully this review would help.
“Don’t judge a book by its cover.” A common saying but one that everyone should live by. Most of us tend to look at people at the outside, and neglect the person’s characteristics that aren’t visible to the eye. Here’s a story about a special someone who could shrink in size, yet despite being small, can manage to be a hero. This movie is Ant-Man, which premiered in theaters last July.
Everybody loves superheroes. And recently, Marvel Studios is rising to the top with its different superhero movies such as Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Avengers and many more. Although the last film of Phase 2 of The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is already shown in theaters (Ant-Man), no need to worry because MCU has its plans until Phase 3, which extends until 2019!
3/10 of my Disney Movie Challenge. 2/10 of my Marvel Movie Challenge. Every Marvel fan waited for 3 years to be able to watch the sequel of Avengers which was released in 2012. Today is finally the day we’ve been waiting for! May 1st marks the premiere date of the second installment of Avengers with the subtitle, Age of Ultron (AoU). However, other parts of the globe were very lucky to have the movie premiered at an earlier date, which was why I was able to watch it with my family last weekend. I know many fans still haven’t watched the film so I wouldn’t give out any spoilers. I would just simply state the concepts and gist of what happened in the film, and my critique of it.
For the 2nd time the new and improved Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) hits theaters when The Amazing Spiderman 2 (TASM 2) had its premiere here in Manila last April 30. Luckily I was chosen by Sky Cable, our local cable network, to join the premiere block screening they were sponsoring at the Newport Arts Cinema at Resorts World Manila.
