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 Comics on Marvel iPad Application

I have been reading comics again since the iPad came out and I can’t download them fast enough. Some series I go through them and love them, and some of them really suck. Surprisingly one my favorites right now is Black Panther & The Immortal Iron Fist but I finish those within two days at the most, UnCanny X-Men was pretty good as well. Civil War was fantastic but I hated the ending, not what I expected. Thor is really good as well, I’m just hoping they release more of his series. They release new comics every two to three weeks but sometimes it still just isn’t enough in my case. I’m looking forward to reading Captain America, and I haven’t even opened up the DC Comics Application yet.

Review: Planet Hulk

A whole new world of hurt! He was a monster, impossible to control, too dangerous to ignore. So Earth’s mightiest heroes exiled him into outer space. But now THE INCREDIBLE HULK crash-lands on the distant planet SAKAAR, ruled by the tyrannical RED KING. Sold into slavery, the Hulk becomes the planet’s mightiest gladiator—but his new masters get more than they bargained for when he forges a bond of brotherhood with his fellow fighters: crafty insectoid Miek, ruthless rock-man Korg, ex-shadow pirest Hiroim, and the noble-born rebel Elloe. Unlike Earth, the desperate people of Sakaar believe a monster is just what they need. But will the Hulk be the one to save their world…or destroy it?

Hulk ripping monster after monster apart, whats not to like, the story is interesting that the Hulk develops intelligence unlike what we are used to seeing. I always think of the Hulk as an unstoppable raging machine that gets stronger as he gets madder, but this time around he serves a different role on a different world. The animation is pretty good and the story is entertaining, but I keep hoping for more from the new Marvel DVDs.

Planet Hulk – Trailer 2009

Marvel and DC Movies have been great over the past couple of years, and I can’t wait for the next one to come out. This time around they have come with the Planet Hulk which revolves around the Hulk being talken off the earth because he is a danger to people, so he manages to get out of his restraints and crash land on a planet that turns him into a gladiator of sorts. With an incredible battle in front of him, the Hulk fights the meanest and toughest monsters, lets see what he does to get out of this. The other part of this comic story is the return of the Hulk to Earth but hopefully that will be released after the success of this animated movie.

Review: The Incredible Hulk

The Incredible Hulk has always been an interesting comic from Marvel, a good guy with uncontrollable power who always causes collateral damage while trying to do the right thing. I enjoyed the first movie they made even though it was a bit slow, but it follow the comic book theme down to the letter. In this case it was a little different, you come into the movie from the get go, and the disaster has already occurred. Edward Norton plays the Bruce Banner, and plays him excellently, then there is Liv Tyler who plays Dr Elizabeth Ross, Bruces’ very good looking girlfriend, at least in this movie. The action is nonstop and you really enjoy the movie, the movie is in pretty good condition in Kuwait there were a few cut scenes but it was always intimate scenes so it didn’t take away from the movie too much.
