SN: New “Avengers: Age of Ultron” trailer and how excited we are for Civil War

I really enjoyed the first trailer for “Avengers: Age of Ultron” despite being one of the rare people who didn’t really enjoy the first installment. The third trailer surpasses the first with tension, cliffhangers, and overall more serious tone.

They keep making them fight each other. They fought each other in the first one, now they’re still fighting each other. Soon they will really be fighting each other ever since it was declared that “Captain America 3” would have a foundation built by the “Civil War” comics.

I loved the “Civil War” comic series and I’ve never hated Tony Stark more than I did in that franchise. The base of the storyline is the Marvel Universe gets into a civil war after Tony Stark helps support a bill that would make all superheroes have to reveal their identities. Captain America is against this, sees it as dangerous, and thus we have our two civil war generals.

Well that was a fancy title-teaser. Really not much to say here. I think we are all excited, this teaser doesn’t perpetuate that excitement, nor allow it to fade away.

Film Review: Rush

daniel-bruhl-a-bordo-della-ferrariFilm Review: Rush

A considerable amount of races occur in Ron Howard’s “Rush,” a biographical sports film about the famous rivalry between Formula One drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda. With so much story to tell in such little time, it is impressive what Ron Howard and his crew have managed to make of this sports fable. (more…)

Status: After being screened to some high praise, particular of Daniel Bruhl’s performance, it’s hard to see Ron Howard’s “Rush” not making it. Though critics are giving it out-of-the-park reviews, they are still all-around positive. It may be all this film needs if it has a successful box-office. Universal doesn’t have many other films in the mix this year.

Film Review: Snow White and the Huntsman

Film Review: Snow White and the Huntsman

Kristen Stewart is Snow White and Charlize Theron is the evil queen in Snow White and the Huntsman. If you are like me, at this point you are pretty burnt out on Snow White adaptations. The reason people re-adapt fairytales so often is because they are fair game to adapt, well most of them at this rate.
