the_avengersMarvel Studios presents Marvel’s The Avengers-the Super Hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins.

My Review

There’s one thing I had to vent about this movie. Why do they have to kill off Agent Phil Coulson? They could have killed Cobie Smulders’ character Agent Maria Hill instead. Clark Gregg’s character Phil Coulson was the anchor on all the Marvel comic superhero movies.

This movie was long. At times, it dragged trying to set the background on all the characters. Fans should already be able to pick the story line quickly, therefore, the introductions are not required especially Pepper Potts and Jane Foster appearances.

I absolutely loved Tony Stark’s snarky comments and Hulk’s smashing. Captain American doesn’t have much room to explore, with that said, I can’t wait for Captain America 2 movie. I can do without Thor. Chris Hemsworth just doesn’t sit well with me. Now, I am scared that he will ruin the next movie for me, Snow White and the Huntsman.

I guess I have high expectations on the movie and was sorely disappointed.

We Bought a Zoo

0

We Bought a ZooThis holiday season, acclaimed filmmaker Cameron Crowe (Jerry Maguire, Almost Famous) directs an amazing and true story about a single dad who decides his family needs a fresh start, so he and his two children move to the most unlikely of places: a zoo. With the help of an eclectic staff, and with many misadventures along the way, the family works to return the dilapidated zoo to its former wonder and glory.

My Review

This movie was predictable, touching, family-friendly movie and well within my expectation.

Desperately needed a change after his wife’s death, Benjamin Mee decided he needed a change. With his daughter’s help, they found a perfect house to start a new life. Dylan Mee (Colin Ford) found friendship he desperately needed at the place he least expected from Lily Miska (Elle Fanning). I was absolutely fascinated with his drawings even though they were a bit dark in nature but nonetheless they were really great. Maggie Elizabeth Jones played the adorable Rosie Mee left a memorable impression.

The only thing I don’t like about this movie was that writers trying to force a romantic relationship between Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson’s characters. They should have just leave it alone in honor and gratitute of Matt Damon’s late wife who left an enormous amount of money to help with the cash-strapped zoo.

My kids definitely had a blast watching all the animals in the movie. The movie is based on a real life zoo. Go to Dartmoor Zoo website for more information or maybe adopt an animal there. I am hoping to visit this zoo if I do get a chance to visit UK in the near future. I originally thought the zoo located somewhere in the midwest of USA. I was so wrong 🙂
