The good thing about living in Asia is that we sometimes get to see big movies a few days earlier than in other countries. Me and the kids have just seen Avengers 2: Age of Ultron last Saturday. It was definitely worth the wait. Not to worry, I’m not spoiling it for those who have yet to see it this weekend.
Although it did skew the timeline for us when we watched the latest episode of Agents of Shield. After watching Colson and his team, I finally figured out why the Avengers 2 movie started out the way it did. Apparently, the recent episode of Agents of Shield was a prologue for the Avengers 2.
But this blog post is about the so-called least favorite Avenger — Hawkeye. Personally, I see him as part of the team and I can’t envision it without him. I guess others feel he is not as cool as the rest. After watching and listening to him sing in The Tonight Show, I’ve grown to like him a bit more. Here is Hawkeye’s funny version of Ed Sheeran’s Thinking Out Loud. Hope you have fun with it as I did :-))
Ok, I’m on geek mode again and I just saw the official trailer of Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. While we are not actually comic aficionados, we still love superhero movies. At present, Marvel is hogging the Hollywood and tv limelight with most of its characters now on screen. I do feel like Stan Lee is getting more famous than most of them :-). And many would argue that Batman may have a bigger fanbase than Superman. Is it really possible for Batman to defeat the Man of Steel? ( Read more )
Just saw the latest and final trailer of Avengers Age of Ultron and I can’t wait to see it when it’s released on May 1. My kids and I feel like we’ve been waiting for Avengers 2 forever. Now that I’ve seen the trailer, I wish I hadn’t. It gave some things away the other 2 trailers didn’t. I don’t normally watch trailers to avoid any spoiler, but I couldn’t help myself.
I do think the voice of James Spader as Ultron is spot on. I recognize his voice and it sounds as menacing and evil as it should. This is what the production of The Hobbit should’ve done to Benedict Cumberbatch as Smaug — wouldn’t have known that was him if they hadn’t advertised it. As for James Spader, didn’t even think he had a good voice for a villain. Anyway, here’s the new trailer for fans like me that can’t wait . . . . by the way, I still love the first trailer better — sort of makes up for the silent shawarma post-credit scene of the first movie. Nothing like watching your superheroes chilling and acting idiotic like the rest of us. ( Read more )
