Iron Man 3

Iron Man 3

This Iron Man is about how Tony Stark’s past has come back to haunt him when the Mandarin, an international terrorist appears. With it come many things. Tony has anxiety attacks because on the memory of what happened during his time with the Avengers where he sent a nuclear missile into a portal into a different area in space (Sorry if you didn’t see the movie Avengers yet but really that is literally over a year old). A.I.M. activity is also popping up when a man blew up a Chinese theater. Tony Stark is facing more enemies now than before with A.I.M, the Mandarin, and his worst enemy yet- himself.

I really liked this movie although a few things in there were not correct according to the Marvel world. For instance Iron Patriot was really supposed to be Norman Osborne (the Green Goblin). There is also something about the Mandarin that was not accurate (I can’t tell you that one). Although the errors were pretty big it was an amazing moving. I would give it a 10/10. I really liked the story-line and the ending was epic.

You have to see this movie. They also make a brief hint at Rescue( Pepper Potts). What I like best about the movie was the middle and the end because the beginning was decent, but not that exciting. Things pick up around the introduction of the Mandarin. There’s just something in the air that makes you feel revved when he shows up.

Madagascar 3 brings back the old New York City Zoo gang. The characters names are Alex the Lion, Gloria the hippo, Marty the Zebra, Melman the giraffe, The penguins, and the chimps. In this movie The gang is stranded in Africa and are trying to get back home. The penguins ditched the gang in the airplane they built and flew to Monte Carlo with the chimps. Some how the gang ends up getting to Monte Carlo and find the penguins in a casino gambling their lives away. The gang tries to get to the penguins through the roof by having the lemurs shut off the lights. The plan doesn’t go well and the casino people end up putting the place on lock-down with only the animals inside. The humans call animal control a little bit after the gang escapes with the penguins, the chimps, and the lemurs. The gang ends up joining the circus and rides a train all the way to Europe. Ben Stiller plays Alex the lion, Jada Pinkett Smith plays Gloria the Hippo, Chris rock plays Marty the Zebra, and David Schwimmer plays Melman the Giraffe. I rate this movie 5 stars because it is family friendly and very comedic.

Movie Review- Batman The Dark Knight Rises

Movie Review- Batman The Dark Knight Rises

The Movie Batman The Dark Night Rises is the last movie in the Batman Dark Knight trilogy and probably the best DC comics movie I have seen. Featuring actors like Christian Bale( Batman), Anne Hathaway( Catwoman), Tom Hardy( John Blake), and Morgan Freeman( Luscious Fox). It is about Batman who returns to Gotham after he has gone missing after being accused of Harvey Dent a.k.a Two Face and how he goes against Bane-a super villain with the power of superhuman strength, with the help of Catwoman, John Blake, Commissioner Gordon, Luscious Fox, and, of course, Alfred. Batman also has to overcome his emotional problems.
In this movie the directors, writers, and producers went all out with wonderful music that sets the mood just right, perfectly acted out scenes, and of course all of the twists and turns that happened in the movie just at the right time. Like my previous post on the play I was nervous going to see this movie because of the shooting, but I think a lot of people are moving on from the incident, but if not you can just get it when it come out on DVD- just make sure to pre-order because it probably will be very hard to find!!! This movie was just marvelous and I would recommend it to anybody that likes comics and action movies. I think that DC  made a right choice choosing Bane for the villain.
Ever since I was a child I hoped there would be a movie involving Bane. My biggest DC dream, besides fighting alongside Batman and Robin, would be to befriend Bane. I also think Christian Bale like always played Batman perfectly.  I would recommend you see this movie in an IMAX theater. I don’t believe that this is the best that DC can offer and I cannot wait till DC releases Man of Steel. I give The Dark Knight Rises 5 stars.  Directed by Christopher Nolan.

X-men :First Class Review

The “X-men First Class” movie is about the X-men series before it all happens, when Professor X was just Charles and when Magneto was just Erik. It is about how X-men started and why Magneto hates Professor X. This movie is full of action. When you watch it, it’ll explain all the stuff that you don’t understand in the other movies. (X-Men, X-men:The Last stand) For example, like why Beast is blue, Why the government hates mutants, and more. I give this movie a 8 out of 10. The movie made me laugh, and made me wonder what was going to happen next.
