The first half of this film is great but the second half really lets it down. What I am struggling with is whether it is that Age of Ultron is a good but flawed film or that in comparison to Marvels other recent films (Cap 2, Guardians) it just doesn’t match their quality. Ultron was a good villain, if an underused one. The avengers where handled well for the most part, hawk eye was especially well done. I’ll go into more detail below but give it a try, got trailers and images below. Check it all out and give me a like and a comment at the end.
“I was designed to save the world. People would look to the sky and see… hope. I think I’ll take that first.”
Well my new feature seems to be doing well, got a lot of likes and comments so I am happy. My actual predictions however could have been better but overall I was surprisingly close on the numbers. The Purge through me off this weekend with stellar numbers and The Internship very much like the film itself disappointed. So check out the final results this weekend and I’ll be back on Friday for the most anticipated release of Man of Steel.
This is a new feature I am thinking of implementing each week. I know a lot of my followers are stat addicts and being a movie blog I tend to keep an eye on box office figures. The figures can be very important to films, not only for studios but for viewers who want a sequel or to avoid one and if you just want to know your favourite film is doing well. Hopefully good films making money will be a new trend. I’d appreciate any feedback as I am trying it out before the big weekend of Man of Steel’s release.
Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog is a 2008 musical tragicomedy miniseries in three acts, directed by Joss Whedon and produced exclusively for Internet distribution. The musical is really quite good and I liked the story as well, not much of a musical loving guy but I don’t mind the odd one that I appreciate and a comedic take on super villains can’t really be missed. The series came out over 4 years ago but I only saw it recently and so I will not be presenting many spoilers and any I am will have a bold warning. The visuals weren’t that bad considering the lack of any real budget and that nobody got paid for this until about a year after it was made. I found the cast to be fantastic and got the comedic take on the superheroes and villains rather well, so I will say well done to Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion, Felicia Day and Simon Helberg. I am a fan of their work and as they did this for free I am happy they have all gone unto other successful projects.
Five friends go to a remote cabin in the woods. Bad things happen. If you think you know this story, think again. From fan favorites Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard comes The Cabin in the Woods, a mind blowing horror film that turns the genre inside out. That’s the description released by Lionsgate, so does it live up to its hype? Yes, yes it does.

Well I went to see the cabin in the woods recently and so I can safely state that yes it certainly does and I give it my recommendation for people to get to the cinema and watch that film as soon as possible.
