CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

Ngayon lang ako nanood ng movie na kailangan akong kalmahin habang nasasinehan. Mabuti na lang at singlaki ko ang kasama ko at hindi siya nasasaktan tuwing napapasuntok ako. Pati mga nasa harap ko, nakatikim nung magbukas sila ng cellphone na nakakaagaw ng atensyon sa screen. Enough na siguro yung review ng Captain America: Civil War.

Iyun lang. So far parang pinakapaborito ko ang Captain America franchise. At dahil sa Civil War, I felt compelled to create these Marvel Heroes Trading Cards and their Live Action Movie counterparts. Enjoy.

Yup, effort yan. Pero worth it. Favorite ko naman nung bata ako ang Avengers at si Spider-Man na madalas kong pato pag naglalaban ng text when it was pronounced as teks pa. Ito ang ilan sa mga naitago kong memories nung kabataan ko. click here

At to close, para naman sa posters ng Movie. Ito naman ang Capatain America Civil War Posters. Divided We Fall.

I told my friend that he shouldn’t judge the beauty of the book with the presentation of this movie. It didn’t highlight the most important things in the book.

1. The love story did not work. Katniss would have been torn between Peeta and Gale, but Gale seemed to be in a one way love affair with the girl. Katniss was always thinking of Gale all through out the game. Her internal conflicts were not experience in the duration of the movie. Peeta was a good speaker, but he did not stand as an underdog. That was Peeta’s strength. However, he came a little arrogant in the film. Gale’s few moments in the book was enough for you to hold on to him. It should have been shown that Katniss did the lip lock with Peeta to get another gift from the sponsor. It wasn’t all about love. Because that would really hurt Peeta in the finale, when Katniss told him that everything was a show.

2. The idea that this Hunger Games was wrong was not delivered. This was a prelude to a war, for crying out loud. This would light up a revolution. This is the start of something big. Yet it failed in providing that very important introduction.

3. I would have been bored if I haven’t read the book, i think. It had a very shaky start. Figuratively and literally. The camera was hand held, playing with an independent film-esque look. However, the shots became firm when the characters got in the Capitol. But it never translated in the story telling.

4. The actors could have given more. Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss) was competing with Twilight’s Bella in the Anxiety Attack area, though it was understandable that Katniss would have been in that situation. She was about to die. However, there could have been more dimensions to that. I know Jennifer could do more than that as seen on her previous films. We’ll get to that later.

5. The director does not have Twilight’s director’s talent of capturing the strength of the boys/men’s looks.

6. The production design was admirable. The set gave away clues on how the people were living in their conditions. The districts looked like concentration camps from wars. They dressed like the prisoners of the Nazi days. The Capitol on the other hand had the grandeur of all the mighty civilizations. Egyptian motifs were seen a lot. The building had the elegance of the Roman Empire plus the futuristic imaginings of Atlantis. Kudos as well to the designers and Make-up department.

7. The most amazing experience was watching the other movie goers got shocked with the “Hunger Games” i could hear, “oh my gods” and “ohh,” “no,” “the kid…” It was like having people from the Capitol behind me. The director was very successful in that aspect.

8. Finally. Let’s have a look at the familiar faces.

Katniss Evergreen. Jennifer Lawrence. Oscar nominatee for Winter’s Bone but we could betterremember her in X-Men First Class as Mystique.

Peeta Mellark. Josh Hutcherson. From Little Manhattan. To Zathura.

Little Manhattan i hate you series
Zathura where Josh was with the Twilight girl Kristen Stewart

Gale Hawthorne. Liam Hemsworth. Not so worthy, yet. compared to his brother Thor.

Cato. Alexander Ludwig. Doesn’t ring a bell? He’s the boy from The Seeker and Race to Witch Mountain. Started as a child star as well.

Alexander Ludwig in the Seeker the Dark is Rising. He was considered for the role of Peeta.

And finally. To surprise you all.

Clove. Isabelle Fuhrman. She’s none other than Esther. the title role in Orphan

That’s all. I am really sad to say this, but i think i enjoyed the first Twilight film over this one. But i will still recommend the film because i really, really love the book.

Hindi ko alam kung sino ang artist nito, pero ang ganda ng atake sa mga character ng Batman. Nakita ko lang ito sa Tumblr at sa tingin ko, maganda itong preparasyon sa darating na Batman movie, Dark Knight Rises

Can’t Wait for the Avengers

Wala pa mang Captain America, excited na ako sa “the Avengers” na nekshir pa ipapalabas. Ang totoo, more than the X-Men, I am an Avengers fan. I remember my first Marvel Comic Book, Avengers na silver ang cover na emboss ang drawing. Astig much. Hindi ko nga lang matandaan ang title. Nawala na kasi iyun nung lumipat kami ng bahay. Naiwan ko sa kisame.

Pero this time, hindi ko makakalimutan itong first Avenger Movie. (Hindi na ito yung bida si Uma Thurma na kina-excite ko nung uanng panahon. Totoo na ito). as a reminder, here are some pre movie posters. Lumabas yata ito sa Comic Con.

Hawkeye, (hawki nung bata ako, as Psylocke is pislak)

Ona, i mean Black Widow

Nabuo ang mga posters/postcards na ito sa mga kamay ni Ryan Meinerding, Marvel Studios Co-Visual Development Supervisor with Charlie Wen
