Movie Marathon Break

I hope everyone is enjoying their Eid break, I for one am back to work but the streets were empty this morning so I’m assuming some people took the week off which is smart. This Eid break for us was simply about being lazy and completely relaxing, so with all those movie lists we had a few insane marathons, some guys passed out, some guys made it through and some watched more then me. This is just going to be a simple wrap up and some we have watched before but they were too good to pass up.

The List Of Movies We Watched:

The Avengers – Watched it twice, this movie is amazing
Battleship – Transformers but with Aliens, lots of fun
The Dictator – Damn its a funny movie

Freelancers – Think Training Day with Denzel Washington, and put in Robert De Niro, and the main character this time is 50 Cent, but also Forrest Whittaker is in it and he is pretty good. I was impressed with 50 cent, he wasn’t terrible, he had a slight mumbling problem but the movie was pretty intense, I liked it.

Three Stooges – We wanted to laugh and thought to put in this movie. It was a bit too kiddy for our taste so we stopped the movie about 30 minutes in and switched to something else. So skip it.

A Thousand Words – The new Eddie Murphy family comedy, and it wasn’t too bad, it felt a little like Dr Doo Little but this time he faced a life altering situation, and its the usual Eddy Murphy style. If you like Eddy you like enjoy the movie, its one of those easy light movies to watch.

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.
