The Movie and My Cents

When it was showing in the cinemas before, I was not able to watch it. I could not remember the reason why I wasn’t able to watch it, but I believe it was because I chose to watch another set of movie than How to Train Your Dragon 2. Now, when I come to think of it, it was such a waste that I didn’t choose this movie as the first choice.

Anyway, I was able to watch How to Train Your Dragon 2 last 2 weeks ago, together with my younger siblings with a wide, flat TV screen at home. And man I must tell you, it was such an amazing movie! I couldn’t imagine how awestruck I was while watching it with my brothers and sisters. Yesness, How to Train Your Dragon 2 nailed it! I will not be ashamed or embarrassed to recommend this movie to people like you, because you see, it is worth the time effort!

MIGHT CONTAIN SPOILERS BELOW! READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 really stirs the emotions in you. Especially when it comes to Hiccup and Toothless’ relationship. I’m really touched by the way they value each other, you know. Aren’t you? Well, it has the hope and inspiration when it comes to friendship. It has the promise and hope for the future, and for having faith in someone you really love. This movie is really worth the time and money!

Hiccup

Hiccup here is already a grown up man. He’s grown up handsome! Really. Such cool animation. Hiccup still enjoys the adventurous life, he isn’t yet confident to take over his father’s role–of becoming the next town Chief. Due to his mother’s absence since birth, Hiccup feels like there’s still a missing part in him.  Midway, Hiccup meets his long lost mother. That’s the point where Hiccup finds his real identity, his completion of his incompleteness. It is revealed in How to Train Your Dragon 2 that Hiccup actually inherited his mother’s talent and passion about dragons.

Toothless

Toothless here is stronger than ever. He is usually grumpy about Hiccup’s adventurous lifestyle, especially whenever Hiccup drops down to fly–because he’s often meet with danger.  I find that cute with Toothless you know, it is really obvious that Toothless is concern of Hiccup’s safety. In the nearing end of this movie, Toothless challenged the Alpha dragon just to protect Hiccup–of course Toothless won. Then he became the next Alpha. Hooray to Toothless!

It is also revealed in this movie that there are hidden powers in Toothless which have not yet discovered. Now, now, I’m looking forward to How to Train Your Dragon 3, ahhaha. I want to believe that there’s next! Toothless is yet to grow up and grow bigger, you know, or meet a new Night Furry.

Movie – Big Hero 6

This movie simply rocks! I love Big Hero 6, and if you haven’t watched this, wew, you missed a half of your life! Kidding. But yes, you really need to see this movie and be encouraged! I’m craving to watch Big Hero 6 again and again! The characters are well-portrayed and the graphics–the graphics are super cool.

Wait. I love Hero’s big brother! Really. Tadashi Hamada is such a sweet, caring, loving big brother! But something happened to him that I wished it didn’t happen…but oh well. It’s worth the watch!!!

Marvel: Guardians of the Galaxy

My sister and I, along with our young uncle watched the Guardians of the Galaxy last Friday. It was indeed a relief that we were able to catch up the last show, because other cinemas didn’t offer it anymore. My first cent is that I dropped my mouth open!

Guardians of the Galaxy Opening Scenes

The movie opening starts with Star-Lord during his younger years, his real name is Peter Jason Quill. He lost his mother young due to cancer, and Peter was abducted by aliens right after his mother died. Since then, Peter grew up outside of his birth terrain. As the movie rolls Peter is seen dancing with his favorite song from childhood years, and well, that’s where Mr. Sony comes in. Lol. The Guardians of the Galaxy movie sure has nailed it–they got Sony on the big screen, from the beginning even to the end.

The opening scene started quite dramatically due to Peter’s mother’s death, I even almost cried, but when Peter grew up into a man in the outerspace, that’s where the fun begun.

The Brief Plot

Peter, who insists to call himself Star Lord, stole an orb from an abandoned place. This orb by the way is the cause of his galaxy adventure in the movie, which leads him to meet Gamora, Raccoon, Drax and Groot–yay for Groot fans! That orb is said to be the most powerful tool in the galaxy, it can destroy one planet in a blink of an eye, the main reason wherein it’s being chased out–especially by bad people like Ronan–the antihero of this movie.

Star Lord, Gamora, Raccoon and Groot met and involved themselves into a public fight which eventually put them into prison, and in that prison they came to meet Drax. Their fate got intertwined and they battle to escape out of the prison, led by the smart Raccoon.  They soon found out the great powers of the orb which Peter had in his hands, and they battle to hide it from Ronan’s reach. Of course, at the end, they won it over.

The thing is, HUMORS in the movie were everywhere! And I could not stop laughing myself out loud every time Groot talks–“I am Groot.” That’s his every day speech.

Movie Overall Rating

I’ll give this movie a nine stars out of ten. The humor, the plot, the graphics and actions are well organized. I must applaud at the director and actors of this movie. If you’re looking for action movies with humors, sense of lines, good plot, excellent graphics, and space and aliens–then Guardians of the Galaxy movie is the right deal for you. Give it a try! Buy the DVD and watch it. You won’t regret.

Movie Trailer

The movie trailer speaks the awesomeness of the Guardians of the Galaxy, but really, you will understand what I’m saying here more if you watch the movie!

My Personal Message

Well, how many Marvel Heroes do movies have to portray? How many heroes do we need in order to be satisfied? Hundreds? Number it. But this movie only shows that humans are in need of a Savior.

Transformers! Age of Extinction: Review and Pictures

Transformers Age of Extinction Poster

Transformers Age of Extinction Poster

We watched Transformers Age of Extinction the other day, and my overall comment was, “SPLENDIDLY AWESOME!”

I have gone to watch this awesome movie first, and I wasn’t able to watch How To Train Your Dragon 2 (which makes me quite sad by the way), but, Transformers Age of Extinction was splendid movie! Worth the money and worth the time–3 hours! I watched the full last show and I got home really late.

May Contain Spoilers Ahead

The graphics was really good, excellent in some degree. The story started first when the dinosaurs of years ago were killed, turned into metal–similarly with the Autobots–by some aliens boarded on a huge ship, and the ship was so big that it seemed like a city!

Anyway, that same ship, those same aliens boarded on it, had secretly partnered with humans in exchange of Optimus Prime. The humans in this movie was now in the aim to eliminate all the Transformers, especially Optimus Prime, because humans thought that as long as they’re living there would be wars.

Optimus Prime was so pitiful in this movie, I must seriously say. Okay, at least in the first few minutes–or at least an hour–he was almost a junk. Couldn’t even fight greatly like he used to before. He revealed anyway that it was the humans who ambushed them after the war in Chicago. Yeager was the one who saved Optimus Prime from his junk condition, risking his life and his daughter’s. Yeager and his daughter’s life, including his daughter’s secret boyfriend, was at risk the moment Yeager decided to help Optimus Prime and other autobots. Poor autobots, they’re going to be extinct in the Age of Extinction.

By the way, there were important lines in the movie that was really good, some of them were inspiring. The action scenes were splendid, the fighting flow and graphics was awesome, although some scenes were real quick to my eyes. I couldn’t say anything bad to the Transformer’s graphics in this movie, it was really the work of a genius, an artist!

Optimus Prime and BumbleBee

I must say that among autobots, there are two consistent transformers that I forever like–that’s Optimus Prime and Bumblebee! In the Transformers Age of Extinction, they made Optimus Prime hunkier here, he’d become a “macho” than the previous Transformers movie, well, that’s just based on my observation, don’t know with the others.

Bumblebee’s car design was again changed, modified into something even more cool, more yellowish! Well, he often changed his design when he didn’t like it.

I think the relationship between Optimus Prime and Bumblebee was like a father and son thingy, because it was always Prime who would discipline Bee. And well, Bumble was the youngest in the group, so he really need Prime’s discipline the most haha! Oh yes, Bumblebee here is SUPER cute, especially his dog robotic eyes. Until now I couldn’t seem to move on that he’s super awesome in the movie. Lol.

Plotholes of the Movie

Everything was splendid except for the fact that I kept on wondering why “those aliens who partnered with humans” wanted Optimus Prime. I kept on wondering why they came on Earth just to get Optimus and when they finally got him, they left the humans alone without war, just Optimus. But when other autobots and Yeager saved Prime and brought him back to Earth, “those aliens” came back to Earth again and now determined to kill Prime instead of just kidnapping him. Oh well.

While the fighting scenes were going on, my brain couldn’t stop wondering why they wanted Prime, and who was the “Creator” that they kept on telling him, who made Prime and so on. It wasn’t explained in the movie (I think it would be explain on the next one) but to someone like me who often is sensitive to plotholes (or confusion) like this, I just couldn’t help it.

The master of those aliens said to Prime, “You were created for a purpose. But you sided with the humans. You’re a disgrace to our kind,” something like that you know, and it made me remember the Dragon Ball Z, where Son Goku was sent to Earth for a purpose to destroy it, and yet Son Goku sided and lived with the humans. Could it be that Optimus Prime was the same? Nah. Couldn’t know. But I was considering the same plot…it might be possible.

Anyway, I’d never stop watching Transformers, and still hoping more Transformer movies to come. Haha. I love mechas, robotics, action, and futuristic machines the most. Now that I’m done with the Transformers, I’ll wait patiently for the Hunger Games “Mockingjay” — haha.

Mockingjay, you’re being watchedlist!

 

How to Train Your Dragon 2 with Toy Freebies!

Toothless Toy in How To Train Your Dragon 2

Toothless Toy in How To Train Your Dragon 2

Yesterday I went to McDonalds just to buy the “Happy Meal” because it has a free toy of different dragons from the recent movie How To Train Your Dragon 2, and it’s still showing by the way. Of course, only one toy per happy meal. But you see, I didn’t waste my time and immediately buy a McDonalds’ meal just to own this little “Toothless!” Oh yeah, I felt like a kid yesterday, really.

So far I’ve only watched the trailer of How To Train Your Dragon 2. Sadly, I haven’t watched the movie in Cinema yet, but I’m planning to, hopefully I can still catch up. The movie trailer says a lot about it, that without even watching the full movie yet, I can still say that Toothless and Hiccup are one of the best pairs that one should surely enjoy watching! You can watch the movie trailer below.

The Characters

I think Hiccup the older version here in the movie is still cool, has the looks yes, but oh well, I’m quite disappointed that he’s no longer cute. I think I like the younger Hiccup because he was cuter then. Anyway, Toothless is still cute and very humorous in his own way so, it’s still okay with me hahaha. Reviewing this movie makes me feel like I’m a total kid, despite my age, and it’s better not to ask me how old I am haha.

There’s a new female character added in the story, and I don’t know yet what role she has. I’m really going to watch the movie, and then, I will review again ahahaha.

There’s a new revelation to me for this new movie, and that’s…the voice actor behind Stoick the Vast, Hiccup’s father, is actually Gerald Butler--my ultimate favorite actor!!! I like almost all of Butler’s movies, my all time favorite is the “Phantom of the Opera, 2004 Movie” and the “300.” I was really like, “Seriously?!” Why did I just know that now? Okay, because I just Google the cast just today. Ugh. Now that I now about it, I’m even more excited to watch How To Train Your Dragon 2, and even replay the first movie with my younger siblings. Okay, don’t laugh at me now.

Toothless Toy from McDonalds

And yeah, since How to Train Your Dragon is very famous among the kids (including me and other adults) this has been franchised by some companies, McDonalds to name. I’m really happy that they have freebies of dragons from the movie, but you have to buy them a meal though, and the amount isn’t that much.

I went to the McDonalds counter (in Abreeza Mall–a shopping mall here) and bought the toy, and the funny thing was, most of the buyers were kids. Right after I took my take out meal, plus the freebie toy of Toothless, I went to Toshiba store in the second floor.

I was asking about the laptop bat’s price, and the crew asked me while staring at my Happy Meal and Toothless toy, “Is that for your younger sibling, Ma’am?”

I immediately shook my head and embraced the toy, as if I was so defensive, and replied, “No, no…no! This is actually mine. Not for kids. Just mine.” He laughed at me, and I realized how embarrassing my reply was, looking at my age you see. I felt like my face turned red last night, haha. But oh well, it was true anyway, I bought the toy for myself. You see, Toothless is not just for kids, haha.

Oh well.

Still, I felt like I was a kid yesterday. Better not do that again.
