Review: The Avengers

Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D. brings together a team of super humans to form The Avengers to help save the Earth from Loki and his army.

This was it, the one movie that brought them all together, every super hero to form the original Avengers. The long awaited movie was very much worth the wait, and Samuel L. Jackson played Nick Fury perfectly, a hard ass with a tough attitude. The story depicted depicted a threat in front of them they did not expect or know how to handle, but they came together as a team to face it, and the best part is the trailers gave nothing away. I don’t want to ruin the story for anyone, but one of the best parts for me is that they didn’t over do it with any specific character, and they had a lot of them, you have seen their movies so you know who these guys are, and even if you haven’t read the comics the story comes across perfectly. 142 minutes of pure joy, the action was nonstop from the beginning, I loved the S.H.I.E.L.D super fortress, there were a lot of tense moments and the comedic parts were played out perfectly which I loved. If you have seen the movie, you should definitely watch it.

The Avengers – Trailer HD

Joss Whedon brings together the ultimate team of superheroes in the first official trailer for Marvel’s The Avengers – out Summer 2012

The Avengers Trailer is Out and it looks BAD ASS! I can’t wait to see this movie, I’m not going to see anymore trailers other then this. I have been waiting to see this trailer for a while now and its well worth the wait. Iron Man, Hawk Eye, Black Widow, Thor, Captain America, and The Hulk all in one movie, its going to be Epic.

Review: Captain America – The First Avenger

After being deemed unfit for military service, Steve Rogers volunteers for a top secret research project that turns him into Captain America, a superhero dedicated to defending America’s ideals.

After so many Marvel movies they saved the best for last, Captain America did not disappoint, action packed true Marvel Movie. Chris Evans played the part of Steve Rogers perfectly, I loved how they made him look weak it really made people think twice about him, and I really loved the feel of the movie in the 40s and a little creative freedom always helps. There were a few cut scenes while watching it in Kuwait but still it was worth watching and I did enjoy even with the migraine that I got from watching in 3D, seriously I would have been happier watching it in 2D. Huge Weaving was the perfect Red Skull, he portrays the bad guy so well and I have always been a fan especially since Mr. Smith (The Matrix). Fantastic mix of characters and actors, there was never a boring moment, and an amazing story, and the best part is the movie gives you small bits to make you think of how they relate to the other movies, loved the last part of the movie too.

Minimalist Marvel Posters

I always enjoy how people can interpret the symbols of Comic Characters and this artist took that to another level with a lot of Marvel Characters. Very cool work and Galactus being one of the more imposing looking posters, I would mind having this up on a wall in a certain patern, it would look cool.

Marko Djurdjevic Comic Art

Marko Djurdjevic is the founder of SIXMOREVODKA concept art studio. He has done some awesome redesigns for Spider-Man and The Fantastic Four in the past, but here’s a collection with a lot of his other work, which is all very cool stuff. His stuff has this old school classic Alex Ross kind of feel to it.

Marko is one of those artists that really know how to bring out the real look of the characters. I love what he did with the spiderman suit it looks like a new age spiderman with the fantastic four. Sometimes I prefer the new modern looking comics but these realistic looking designs are amazing as well, I can never get tired of comics.
