WARNING: Spoilers Ahead!

I love this movie! This is my favorite of all of the Marvel movies (as of now)! 

This movie follows Steve Rodgers as he adjusts to modern life. He goes on missions for S.H.I.E.L.D., but he still tries to live a normal life. The story is multi-dimensional, but it can really be boiled down to this: Hydra is in S.H.I.E.L.D. And the Winter Soldier is helping them. I won't say who the Winter Soldier is, because it's just too exciting.

The acting in astounding! Chris Evans as Cap, Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, and Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill are all amazing. New characters introduced are Sebastian Stan as the Winter Soldier and Anthony Mackie as the Falcon (one of my favorite Marvel heroes!), and they both are on par with the rest of the cast.

The action is incredible. It's fast paced, but easy to follow, and is filled to the brim with excitement!

I loved every bit of this movie! I highly recommend that you watch it. It's a thrilling action movie with a good plot.

Thor: The World of Anti-Light

Hello people of the Interwebs!

Today's review is of Thor: The Dark World!

WARNING: Spoilers Ahead!

This film is... okay. There's nothing offensive about it, but nothing really special about it. It once again follows the story of Thor and Jane, as they try to stop the evil Dark Elf, Malakith, from obtaining the evil substance: the Aether, which can be used to bring the universe back to darkness. The Aether is inside Jane, and they need to make sure that Malakith doesn't get it, so Thor breaks Loki out of prison to destroy Malakith, which ends up backfiring. And that's all you really need to know. Except that Loki dies. Except he doesn't, and he takes Odin's throne. That's all.

The acting is good. Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Natalie Portman as Dr. Jane Foster are fantastic. Tom Hiddleston as Loki is amazing as always. All of the other Asgardians are good. Dennings and Skargard reprise their roles of Darcy and Dr. Selvig. Now, this next opinion is extremely biased. Christopher Eccleston as Malakith. I loved him as the Doctor in Doctor Who. He was, in fact, my first Doctor. And the Doctor is such a different character from Malakith. So I must say, he is "Absolutely Fantastic"! (Tee hee)

The action was more interesting in this movie than in the first. In the last battle between Thor and Malakith, there are portals opening up all over London. The visuals of them transporting between Earth, and the Dark World, and other of the nine realms. 

There are a few funny moments, and some okay story lines. All in all, it's worth seeing at least once.

Titanium Alloy Man! (The Third and Final Installment)

Hello people of the Interwebs!

Today's review is of Iron Man 3!

WARNING: Spoilers ahead!

By gosh, this movie is awful. Well, not strictly awful, just really bad. And not really the acting, or the action, just the story and plot twists. I'm not going to lay the story out, as I've done previously. However, I will explain some of the more upsetting plot points.

First, let me ask you something. Does the following story line sound familiar to you: A normal guy is a huge fan of a famous guy, tries to work with him, gets shot down, becomes a villain. Well, do you have your answer? Incredibles. No, I'm not complimenting your amazing deduction skills, I'm saying that it's the plot of the Incredibles. 

Also, the villain that you see for the entire movie is not even the villain! He's an actor that's been hired to portray the "Mandarin". Just lazy, I'd say.

As for the acting, same spiel. RDJ is great, Paltrow is great, and Cheadle is great. The other actors are good,  but not the best. Guy Pearce playing Aldrich Killian and Ben Kingsley playing Trevor Slattery (the actor playing the Mandarin), are probably the best of the supporting cast.

The action is good, not great. It's still fun, though not the best.

I'd recommend against ever watching this, unless you've already watched the first two movies, and want to wrap up the story.
