Captain Marvel Preview : not your average superhero

It may have taken nineteen movies to get there but get there it has and the MCU’s first female-led solo entry is on its way towards establishing a major new character set to be its face in phase 4 and beyond (sorry, Natasha, sorry, Wanda, we were kinda rooting for you ladies for a while). With the small matter of the aptly titled Avengers Endgame marking the “end of an era” after a decade long’s worth of interconnected storytelling, cinephiles and longtime fans of this successful –verse are hoping Cheeseburger (her callsign in the comics) can pick up the baton left behind by her male counterparts to lead the MCU into—who knows, another decade’s worth of stories, maybe? But let’s not look too far yet. There’s still an issue of introduction and an establishment of her character and world to navigate first before she goes to town on Thanos in Endgame. Here’s what we know about Captain Marvel, and what to expect.

The Taking Of Pelham 1 2 3 (2009)










It could have all gone wrong in this movie, one silly mistake, or the wrong course of word play action would have led to a catastrophic loss of lives in this train hijacking sequel, in a way, nice job was done, smart. The only problem was that it felt like a walk in the park (I wouldn't say total), too easy, and yeah I've agreed to remarks on how shallow the movie is, or how it isn't deep I don't really feel so. Here we have Walter Garber,played by Denzel Washington, a father and a husband, and the bad guy  played by John Travolta. The movie is based on a novel. The movie is great has an awesome feel, the tension is great.

But honestly the part of the movie confusing to me was that I couldn't decide if it was an emotional drama, or a thriller, because thriller wise there was nothing really new and I know it's an old movie but still, back then, could still say the same I mean a rat climbed into your pants?. That didn't seem like a way to derail the whole plot.

If we go to the characters and emotional aspects of the movie, it was awesome, not really in sections but in the whole ride. Denzel is this simple man haloed angel while John Travolta is the unrelenting devil, I think he even played a much better part because the whole life of the movie depended on him which was shown on how it came to life on getting Denzel to admit on the bribe, nothing like throwing a little dirt on our angel but his intentions were moving.

Emotionally it is a brilliant movie, but the plot seemed too basic...nah, I'm not saying write it off? But more could have been done, but hey its your typical hostage situation again and what was the point of the camera thing if it wasn't going to be used in any way? They should have scratched that and also the whole deadly Nascar'99 stuff didn't get to me but hey if you're looking for some personal intense hostage situation? This is one movie to consider. The emotional hieghtness was good, made up for the plot and when he came home with the carton of milk?...aaww.

Avengers 4 Preview : What and what not to expect

Was it not late last April that the latest instalment of the Avengers franchise, Infinity War, stormed into theaters and cinema outlets around the world, winning the praise of casual moviegoers and the majority of the critics, as well as rewriting the box office records to become the fourth highest grossing movie of all time evidenced by BO receipts to the tune of $2.04bn and the highest grossing movie based on a comic book property? Yes, although it feels just like yesterday.

The world marveled (pardon the pun) as the combined might of the disparate Marvel Cinematic Universe franchises took on the unstoppable Mad Titan Thanos (played to dastardly perfection by Josh Brolin) on his mission to claim all of the Infinity Stones towards “Snapping” half of all Life in the universe from existence, and wept as they failed. Thanos won, and several of the heroes we’ve grown to love over the past decade of MCU storytelling bit the dust, literally, sending the mega-franchise down a …

Me Before You (2016)

If it isn't the hippie, naive and cheery Lou played by Emilia Clarke in this movie that doesn't turn your heart to hot butter, then I don't know what would.

Sam Clafin as Will Traynor (so moody) and Emilia Clarke as Lou, The game of Thrones mother of dragons serves as the care giver to the quadriplegic hunger games star. Now the thing is I'm not a fan of the whole moody, reject-ey, persistent-until-i-melt-your-heart mushy stuff, but this movie just does it in a brilliant way I mean he lives in a castle, how dreamy is that?.

The Chemistry is Heavy, setting is awesome but what I loved most were Lou's outfits, like a washing machine exploded. Typically Hilarious.

Our moody hero, Will Traynor, at the start of the film is seen to be an enthusiastic achiever with a hot girlfriend until he's involved in a motorcycle crash that leaves him paralysed from the neck down.

Lou is our damsel, so lowly, she lives in a dingy apartment owned by her parents and she also has a b…

Paper Towns 2015 Movie

Nothing like having a hot girl climb into your freaking window and offer you the night of your life, well, not that kinda night in a sense, just a little more outdoors. The movie is based on the novel 'paper towns' by the famous author John Green.

This is another tear inducing teenage melodrama kicked of by Margo Roth Spiegelman (Cara Delevigne) to teach a lesson in self discovery to her florida high school mates via an eventful road trip. Did someone just say road trip?. The movie centers on Quentin (Natt Wolff) who has known Margo since she was Buck -toothed and little, until he grew up to be a nerd and she turned into a roman goddess...yeah, that's bad for you man but hey there's still hope for you Q, so imagine his surprise when one night before the end of the school year, she spider-womans her way into his bedroom and challenges him to take her out on his folks car saying "Basically, this is going to be the best night of your life".

Well our ambitious g…
