#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.

7/10 of my Disney Movie Challenge. Fantastic Four is an iconic superhero group that has been made known into the film industry since mid-2000’s. Because of the original movie’s success, Disney and Marvel teamed up and decided to remake the movie with a fresh cast, newly improved special effects, and a somewhat different presentation of the plot. The new Fantastic Four film was released in August 2015. The question is, is the new film as fantastic as the original?
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.
Whether you’re a kid or a kid at heart, Disney never gets old. That is why 2015 is considered awesome for us Disney Geeks since around ten Disney movies will be out in the cinemas. I was lucky to watch “Into the Woods” tonight since it only premiered in my country this week, and the movie inspired me to set up a challenge for myself, and feel free to join me if you want.
1/10 of my Marvel Movie Challenge. If the “Avengers” are earth’s mightiest heroes, outer space has its own. They are the Guardians of the Galaxy, and the Marvel-produced film was released last July. To be honest, when I watched the trailer for the first time, I was like “Who are these creatures? Are they some kind of mediocre Avengers wannabees? And why are they using 80’s songs?” But when I found out that the movie was a huge hit, curiosity (and Chris Pratt) made me watch the film.
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.
