Marvel’s: The Avengers, Really?!

Marvel’s: The Avengers, Really?!

I watched the movie since the review is crazy and any person who had seen the movie has a high regard with it.

The Avengers is a star-studded movie. Biggest stars in the entertainment industry such as: Robert Downey, Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlett Johanssen as Black Widow, Jeremy Renner as HawkEye, Samuel L. Jackson as Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill (Robin of How I Met Your Mother TV Series) and not to mention Tom Hiddleston as Loki, the antagonist.

I have watched some movies with a super sized casting but it seems to me that I find it boring because I expected more but only end up disappointed. I don’t watch trailers or read movie spoiler, that’s why I was surprised to see Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. So where did Edward Norton go? I got curious. Marvels: The Avenger movie might came from a comic book, but I didn’t expect it to be so comical. Like when Loki, considered as a God from a different planet with special powers just got stunned by a full fisted Hulk. It’s so hilarious I laughed my heart out! It’s a laughingstock scene!

And there goes my maybe. Maybe, Edward Norton doesn’t like the role of being a clown in the movie. I collected Edward Norton’s movies from 1990’s and up and it’s all serious movies and he’s a serious actor, no shits! After watching The Avenger, I searched for an answer and here it goes, courtesy of moviecultists.

Some would say he’s a hard-to-direct actor, a pre-madonna. But I don’t think so, he’s just a serious actor/artist who loved to make flawless movies, that’s why he’s speaking out his mind, banging out ideas whenever there’s something need to be change in a scene. So good for him on not pressing the idea of him as The Hulk in the Avengers movie and bad for the Marvels company for getting a bad reputation because they said it’s all about the money issue that’s why they didn’t get Edward for the movie.

Wicker Park Movie (2004)

Wicker Park Movie (2004)

Along with the loneliness and pang of pain Matthew felt is the search for his long time ex-girlfriend to whom he had excommunicated for couple of years. The agony of pain seeking for an answer of why it ended without any valid reasons made him miserable with each detective act he played searching for the girl he knew he loved and still love. Only to realize that’s somebody’s trying to tear them apart.

This is a remake movie of L’Appartement (1996) a French film. Actually I saw the L’Appartement before Wicker Park. Single ladies would love to fall in love in the name of love if they would watch this Wicker Park Movie. Josh Hartnett portrayed the role perfectly that you would wish you were the girl in the scene and turned it into reality. That’s how I felt while I’m watching the Wicker Park Movie all over again and again! Obsessions and fighting for the love of your life is what’s the Wicker Park Movie is all about.

Hayzz.. the need to fall in love, watch this Wicker Park Movie ladies. I love you Josh Hartnett!  😀

Memento

Memento

This movie Memento sounds crazy to me. I have to watch it twice to get the idea of the movie. It started backwards, then flashbacks which is even crazier without a subtitle embedded.

Memento directed by Christopher Nolan, starred by Guy Pearce as Leonard Shelby the guy who has a short term memory loss and who can’t make new memories; and Joe Pantoliano as  Teddy who was his guide/police/benefactor.

Leonard kept tattooing his body, taking photos from a polaroid camera and taking notes for important facts reminding him of what have become of his life after “the incident”. His wife was raped and somebody hit his head damaging his brain to not function normally and made him have a short term memory loss. I never thought it exists until I read it on wiki, but usually its factor is because of STD, another topic to ponder upon. Anyway, where was I… He can remember his past but after “the incident” he can’t remember anything or cannot make new memories which only made it sad because a lot of people took advantage of his weakness. They do him as a puppet but in the end, he killed the one pulling his strings.

This Memento Movie is something I could not forget easily, it’s a mind-twisting movie. Also reminds me of what’s life is really all about and thanking the Above for giving me a normal fully functional body.

Gone with the Wind (1939)

Stars: Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh

Category: Romance, War & Drama

I’ve been always told that Gone with the Wind Movie (1939) is one of the most beautiful movie of all times and has gathered a lot of Academy Awards for best actor, best actress, best director, best picture and etcetera. So one day, together with a friend and my husband watch the movie.

It’s about a story of a strong headed, unlady-like woman who would do anything based on her instinct to chase her happiness and ambitions. Not knowing that her will to be on top destroys every person that she loves especially his husband.  And she let them passed her by only to realize that they’re the most important being in her life. As the saying goes “You’ll never knew someone’s worth, until they’re gone”.

it can be applied to anyone whose being ambitious and forgets to keep feet on the ground. mmm i knew a lot of people just like her. and in the past I’m almost like her too. Good thing I have my baby, she made me realize that the world is a happy place with a real simple contentment in life. She neutered me. A good movie to watch, there’s loads of moral lesson in this movie!
