Why Spiderman: Homecoming Is The Superhero Movie You’ve Been Waiting For


When talking about Spiderman, I am one of those who is a fanatic and always thrilled.  That’s why, though I was alone watching this movie, I still enjoyed it.  It was my first time to watch in cinema with no one beside me.  But, I tell you, it was such an amazing experience.



Well, so much for my babbles.  Here’s my review about Spiderman Homecoming.

Spider Man has just finished his first mission with the Avengers, and he’s craving for more adventures. So a 15- year old kid, Peter Parker, who’s trying to get a hang of his powers, is now back on the big screen.

Spiderman: Homecoming, starring Tom Holland and directed by Jon Watts , highlights what the Spidey guy can do even if he’s just a teen. Here are the reasons why a movie enthusiast like you shouldn’t miss Spiderman: Homecoming.

·         Passionate Casts
Spiderman: Homecoming is a fun movie to watch this summer. Thanks to the absolute blast conveyed by Holland and the supporting cast of Jacob Batalon, Laura, Harrier, and Zendaya. A few scenes with Tony Stark also steers the film in excitement without having to be an Iron Man-centric piece.


·         Enjoyable For All Audiences
The movie isn’t just for kids. It’s also for kids at heart, for everyone, literally. The movie theatre becomes an amusement park that’s full of adrenaline rush while balancing humor and sensory stimulation. Bring your kids to the movie house now, moms and dads!

·         Vulture is Surprising
Michael Keaton plays Adrain Toomes, aka Vulture, a powerful small-time nemesis. It’s far from the classic theme of destroying the city or defeating the Avengers. His business is to open a gate for invaders to create a grand scheme. Well, he’s both terrifying and sympathetic.

·         “Mostly” Grounded
Spiderman: Homecoming showcases a city where the Avengers are a daily part of life. What gets the chill for the Spidey is that he is winningly vowed by his own powers and capabilities. He’s not that good at everything that shoots out of his costume, so he keeps on saying “Awesome” with new stuff he discovers. Well, we can’t blame the kid; he’s just 15 years old.


·         Genuinely Funny
Homecoming gets the humor right all throughout. A big thanks to the script writers and casting. Tom Holland plays the hilarious scenes well. In fact, the very funny Michael Keaton also shares some good laughs, which add to the heart and soul of the film. The movie is genuinely funny and you won’t want to miss the laughs out.

·       Tom Holland himself is a Spidey Sensation
The young charming English actor, Tom Holland, is everything that Spiderman ought to be. He’s handsomely awkward and he looks young enough to be a high school student. His natural charm and effortless youthful look makes him the best guy to don the red spider costume. For Peter Parker die-hard fans, here’s one of the facts about Tom Holland that you probably don’t know. He’s a good dancer, no surprise we can see he has the grooves and moves.


·         Stimulating Twists
Marvel has proved that Spiderman is well and good in their hands. The surprising and interesting twists at the end will mean a new touchdown for more Spidey movies. Well, could it be a new takeoff for Marvel and DC’s filmic fights? Which universe wins when it comes to twists? That’s a good marvel versus DC thing to watch out for!

Topping off, Spiderman: Homecoming is the superhero movie you’ve been waiting for.

Despicable Me 3 Review: Gru and His Hilarious Minions Return To A Life Of Crime


With a mixture of elusively European shaping, a storyline that combines humor and emotion, Despicable Me 3 proves once again it can be an entertainment charm for the kiddos and classic laugh lovers. Showing that there’s life outside Pixar and Disney, Despicable Me 3 is a hilarious piece of product that will bring out good laughs in you.

Despicable Me 3 follows the story of Gru, (voiced by Steve Carrell) as he and Lucy (Kristen Wiig) got terminated from their employment, leading their lives into an unsure place until one day Gru heard about his unknown twin brother, Dru (also Carell), who desires to form a relationship with his long-lost brother. But Dru’s secret plot gave the chance for Gru to revenge on Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker), the popular super villain who’s behind Gru’s termination from his job.


Aside from how Gru attacks the scenes hysterically, there’s another hilarious twist. The minions end up with their own mini adventures, an adventure that climaxes with the scene-stealing of the funny ones in jail.  I can say that the decision to separate the Minion’s adventure from Gru is a wise idea, as it allows the yellow bastards to exist as their own mini movie without having to detract from the core storyline. I love how funny the characters are in their moderate doses, and I am once again thrilled that something fresh has become a part of the entertainment lexicon. Kudos to directors Kyle Baldas and Pierre Coffin, and to the writers, Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul!


Although the story is a bit predictable, it’s fun, entertaining, and kid-friendly. The 1980’s humor and silly Minion jokes make me laugh too much. The double character of Carell, one dark, and the other bald, is indeed formulaic. The twin material is endearing, funny and is very easy to comprehend even by the youngest viewers. And the movie’s scoring by PharrelWilliams is enriched by 1980’s hits such as Madonna, Nena, and Michael Jackson.


As for the movie’s villain, I can totally say that Parket’sBratt is a memorable antagonist. His voice perfectly matches an indignant middle-aged man who wasn’t able to come to terms with all his fall from celebrity. And Despicable Me 3 wasn’t just for kids. The sight gags and classic jokes also appeal to our Gen X and Y parents. The moviemakers toned down the risky minion focus since the second movie, which turns out to be for the better. Yes, this movie lacks something, the reason why it does not go in par with the standards of the first movie. But still, it’s a great Despicable Me movie, as it promotes lessons about loyal friends, siblings, and families.


Whoa! Overall, I love the subplots keep the story spinning merrily. Thanks to the charming and hilarious nature of the silly characters and their genuine kindness, Despicable Me 3 is still entertaining enough as a decent sequel of the two chapters.

Lastly, the hollow sweetness at the heart of the movie makes me want to watch another Despicable Me movie anytime soon.

Why I’m In Love with Wonder Woman and I Rate Her 95%?


Finally! The DC Extended Universe found the cure to its troubled repute! And it wasn’t done the Superman way. It was done the Amazonian way. Thanks to Wonder Woman!



The troubled balance between DC’s philosophy and trilling actions has now been restored by a muscular origin story that defines the real heart of the genre. Previously, DC Extended Universe has tried to amaze us with some skeptical and somewhat hostile movies, you know… with Superman, Batman, and the Suicide Squad. But DC finally got it right! Wonder Woman delivers a welcome respite with Israeli star Gal Gadot, who was able to take the avatar of truth and justice into a newer height.


Before she turned into a Wonder Woman, she was an Amazonian princess who was trained to be an unsurmountable fighter. Raised on a cushy island paradise, Diana found out an intense massive conflict in the outside world from an American pilot who chased on their shore. She was convinced that she can put an end to this threat.



Despite being a superhero original story, the tale of Wonder Woman is no similar to the super soldiers and street vigilantes in other movies. Even Thor who travels from his space palace to a trifling town in the midst of nowhere is totally different from Gal Gadot, who leaves her paradise to take on a world full of adversity.

The philosophy is stirringly different from the other DC heroes. Signature heroic items such as tiara, bracelets, and lasso unfold all throughout. The origin has been recapped again and again to give justice to the ridiculous parts, but it powerfully moves forward into an amazing exposition.

Wonder Woman symbolizes a couple of crucial balancing pieces: adventure and angst and humor and seriousness. But the most stunning balancing act is portrayed by Diane and Steve over whether Ares mythology is real, and whether or not the magical hidden Amazon islands have any place in the outside world. The special effects are intense but not tiring, the big actions are delightful, and add to that the wonderfully made climaxes. Gadot successfully carries out every part of the movie, even the sloggiest ones.

Director Patty Jerkins has capitalized on Gal Gadot’s athleticism, choreographing battle scenes as if they were modern ballet. Yes, slow-motion can be numbing in this milieu, but when it was augmented by Junkie XL and Hans Zimmer’s powerful theme, it delivers an epic quality in every sequence.

All in all, Gadot is simply amazing. No. She is MARVELous. She’s totally bold, commanding, and everything needed to bring back the DC Extended Universe back to the star! Superman, Batman, and the Suicide Squad shares the same question: What does heroism mean? Wonder Woman finally answered it!


Yes, Wonder Woman has proven to be a physically and resonate character that won me 5 stars! It’s a super refreshing superhero formula that we haven’t seen in the DC Extended Universe yet. I personally recommended it to my friends and GIRLFRIEND!

What I Love and Worry about the ‘Power Rangers’ Reboot



When I was a kid, I used to scream ‘Go, go, go Power Rangers’! Yes, I am an avid fan of Power Range, and I would lay all my cards on the table. First off, I would say that Power Rangers flirt with jittery materials, such as the leaked- nude subplot, and the teen heroes uttering the word ‘shit’ many times. But I won’t say that it’s a cash grab at all. Personally, I have witnessed its ups and downs.
Power Ranges, a reboot after 20 years, is an attempt to create something new, while paying reverence to the original Fox’s kids show Might Morphin Power Rangers. Unfortunately, director Dean Israelite didn’t find a pretty way to balance the new and the old.


Power Ranges revolve around the story of five ordinary teens, who are destined to become extraordinary upon learning their idle town, and the whole world, is on the throes of an alien threat of evil sorceress called Rita Repulsa. Picked out by destiny, these 5 infamous ordinary heroes quickly find out that the safety of the world is in their hands. But first, they need to overcome their real-life conflicts before it’s too late, and band together to form the mighty Power Rangers.

The good thing about this reboot is that it invests a serious amount of time in grabbing the audience to resonate to its human aspects, and it succeeds in most parts. It’s refreshing to watch a movie that leans hard into the human needs. One of the most amazing moments is when the chosen five are sitting around a campfire and getting to know each other.



Another thing that makes Power Rangers worth watching is the cast. All our five new heroes are played by newcomers, and we can really see the contagious enthusiasm that they have shown. Their heroic sense of willingness and curiosity makes it amiable at the heart of Power Rangers.

If you missed the "Morphine Time", here's the video that will surely bring nostalgia in your end.


However, as the scene turns into ‘discovering of your own powers’, the movie starts to get a bit stale in its midway point.

Despite all the great fireworks, this film often looks like it would be way better if it’s at home, and not on the big screen. It’s a bit claustrophobic, and the low budget toku twist of the TV series is taken over by the alien tech designs, and the coolness of those frantic costumed marital arts battles is replaced by shaky cam and GCI slow motion.


If this movie took a bit more risks and expounded on some aspect of the mythology it clues at, it could have been a more worthwhile movie with a stronger appeal. However, at the very least, if you’re looking for a baggage-free superhero movie, with a feeling of nostalgia of your childhood’s Might Morphin heroes, this reboot won’t disappoint you at all. And if you’re a long time Power Rangers avid fans, you would love this movie than mock it. 



Imperfections aside, Power Rangers can be a cool introduction of a cinematic hero movie to the younger generation without Marvel’ credits.  I will give this movie 9/10 stars.

You can leave your comments below once you are done watching the Power Ranger 2017 movie.

These ‘Oh-Wow’ Super-Realistic Versions Of Your Favorite Pokemons Will Surely Blow Your Mind

Sometimes, it can be so hard to remember that the Pokémon is just a cool game meant for children’s entertainment, especially that those little pocket monsters have now evolved into super-realistic versions. Get ready to be mind-blown! Here’s a selection of Pokémon characters redesigned by artist Joshua Dunlop in a series of images he dubs ‘Pokémon Zoology’.

Bulbasaur

Everyone loves the Bulbasaur! This small frog monster could be more marketable in this form. The artist rendered it a light-green blue body to make it look realistic. Add this to the blue-green spots, and look at the fiery eyes, and tell me that it’s not adorable. Well, every one of us would surely love seeing this monster evolve into a realistic Ivysaur or Venasaur.

Charmander

Who among you would love to see Charmander turn into a hypsilophodon with a tail on fire? Everyone surely does! Well, this image is not actually like the lizard Pokemon monster, but there’s no doubt about it- it’s one of a kind impressive! It looks like no monster can beat Charmander now! And wait ‘til artists see more of the Kanto native to have a cool painting of this monster.
Squirtle

Your well-loved turtle Pokémon looks really awesome in its long curled tail. And while you’ll be amazed when it moves on its two feet or on its all fours, the real-life version looks stunning with its toes and fingers on its flippers. This is indeed a legit cute real Squirtle.

Eevee

Let’s enjoy a real-life version of the cute mammalian monster with a brown fur and a bushy tail with a cream-colored tip. This image of our favourite ‘Eevee’ looks like it’s evolving into a powerful Flareon. Just state at its eyes and you’ll get a scary but still cute look from her, with its big ears of course and the lovely pink paw pads. The artist didn’t even forget the furry fur-collar.

Poliwag

Who won’t forget the adorable water-type monster who has trouble walking on feet due to lack of arms? Well, she may get unbalanced, but this real-life version of Poliwag looks interesting. It may look a bit of a penguin, or a tadpole, whatsoever, but it is really incredibly mind-blowing. We love the spiral on its tummy!

Oddish!

You want Oddish! Well this real-life version of the grass type monster Oddish looks surprisingly cool. Mind you, it’s not a veggie, so don’t put it in your garden salad. The artist really nailed in coming up with this real Oddish monster! Kudos to him!

Jigglypuff

The fluffy Ballon Pokemon, Jigglypuff shows us its furry side in its real-life version. Its round-ball shape and pink skin add to its well-sketched rubbery skin looks really amazing. Wait, everyone surely loves the tuff on the forehead. Or is that a fur?

Diglett

This real-life version of the Ground-type Pokemon looks incredibly realistic in a vivid artistic background. The blend of brown skin and its cute brown eyes show how lovely Diglett can be if it was a real Pokemon monster.

Butterfree

This artistic resemblance of Butterfree only proves one thing. Its purple body really looks too good. Everyone surely looks forward to more real-life version of this insect-type monster. Oops, what about waiting for its evolution in Mega Butterfree real life? That sounds exciting!

Pikachu

Your favorite classic Pikachu really looks stunning in this super-reality version. Get to see Pokémon’s main monster start as a cute and little creepy bunny rabbit. It’s as if it creatively sprung from the modern-day Pete’s Dragon with a bonded cabbage on its tail. Well, Charmander has to get ready, Pikachu got tail on fire!


If you can’t get enough of Pokémon, then these real-life versions of your favorite pocket monsters will surely leave your mind blown!

Kung Fu Yoga Review: Jackie’s Peppy Bollywood Dance Moves Save The Day



Have you grown up watching action superstar Jackie Chan’s endearing goofiness and comic timing in his action comedy movies? Or have you missed his expert kung fu moves? Unfortunately, his latest movie with Indian actor Sonu Sood, entitled ‘Kung Fu Yoga’ didn’t do all the beats, except for his fancy Bollywood-style dance moves.

And this is such a pity because Chan is known as an expert jokester. And many JC avid fans thought that this mixture of Kung Fu and Yoga in one movie, with Hindi-China yada yada, is supposed to be a barrel laughs for everyone. But the jaded kung Fu moves were obviously hardly labored, and they’re a yawn.


Here, Jackia Chan is an India Jones- themed archeologist hunting for valued Indian treasures with the help of younger assistants in this reunion movie with director Stanley Tong. When a lovely Indian professor, played by Disha Patani as Ashmita, approaches him with a map of Indian treasures from the Magadha Dynasty, Jack decided to do the exploration with his helpers.

The story starts with an animated comic that displays a war between the warriors from the Tang Dynasty and the villain general Arunasva. Next, there’s a cartoonish portrait of, like, 300 BC stuff. And frankly speaking, moviegoers and critics think that the movie makers should have chosen a better tittle than ‘Kung Fu Yoga’. Aside from a vague mention of Yoga’s breathing techniques, the movie has actually nothing to do with yoga.


The adventure takes the cast from one unusual destination to another, from an encounter with wolves in Tibet, an action-packed car chase with a lion in Dubai and hungry bunch of hyenas in Rajasthan. And of course, there’s the group of human villains equipped with raging guns. A bit of the movie is taken in Dubai just to give us a cool car chase with Jackie having an unexpected guest lion at the back seat. The crashes and roars may have ensued, but they’re all a big yawn for moviegoers. Even the bunches of clichés about India are frankly more wearisome than funny.

On the good side, the only time this Indiana-Jones styled movie comes to life is a cool item with all the casts and some extras. A vigorous closing dance sequence, following an underwhelming and sober climax, pays tribute to Bollywood dance numbers. His preppy Bollywood dance moves prove two things. Chan can break a leg. And a dance and song choreographed by Farah Khan still prevails. And oops, by the way, don’t expect to see customary bloopers on the closing credits.


Kung Fu Yoga | Song | Jackie Chan, Disha Patani Action-Comedy Movie


Rounding off, Kung Fu Yoga is chastely intended for Jackie Chan fans who want to witness how he bonds with Indian actors and actresses in an Indiana Jones style movie. Sad to say, this movie is definitely not his best performance ‘coz we all know what he has already proven. Watch this movie only if you are in the mood to enjoy some humorous action sequences and gestures. And of course, give it a try if you want to see how Jackie Chan can sportingly shake a leg in a Bollywood-style dance number.
