Age Of Ultron Extended Trailer Analysis

avengers-2-Age-Of-Ultron

Since the trailer that was going to be unveiled during last night’s Agents of SHIELD was “leaked” they had to show something to make it up to the fans or more so the network, so we got a look at an extra scene from Age of Ultron that lead into the trailer. We see the Avengers team hanging out in the Avengers tower all trying to pick up Thor’s hammer Mjölnir (we will get to that bit in a moment) and then we see Ultron or the destroyed Iron Man AI armor that will turn into Ultron come out and make the string speech and lead into the trailer. It wasn’t a whole lot aside from comedy but we did get two small pieces of information. Read the rest of this entry

The-Amazing-Spider-Man-2

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has gotten a good amount of hate from the people of the interwebs (see what I did there?) and that is part of the reason I didn’t see it in theaters.

Guardians-of-the-Galaxy-second-movie-trailer

Guardians of The Galaxy, one of the best comic team I have ever read and the current box office hit released as of tonight and I got lucky and was able to see the first showing and of course review it. In the trailers we had seen no one knew what to really expect from this movie. It looked to be a mix of comedy, action, and story telling and boy did it succeed in accomplishing every one of those and then some. It had it’s sad moments, awesome moments, and a lot more comedic moments than I expected. Needless to say I haven’t laughed that much during a movie in some time. Now let’s dive deeper into Guardians of The Galaxy in my spoiler free review!  Read the rest of this entry

Why I Love Comic Books

comicbooks

 

I’ve been into comics since i was a little kid but i slowed down for quite some time. Recently I started getting back into them and i wanted to share my love for them as well as maybe persuade some of you to pick up this fun hobby.

Comic books have been around for a long time and have had huge impacts on modern life, entertainment, and literature. There are 3 types of comics: regular comics, trade paperbacks, and graphic novels. A comic book is a regular usually small book that is a part of a series usually in the range of $4. Trade paperbacks are more book like in size and contain a bunch of comic books in a series usually split into 2 volumes usually around $30+. Graphic novels are a lot like trades but they usually do not contain a series of comics. Instead they are single stories but with chapters and are a lot longer than regular comics. These can range from $15-$40+. My personal favorite are graphic novels or trades because i dont like going through the trouble of chasing down all the comics in a series to find out what happens next. There are also online comics but i dont like those because i like to have the physical book.

Now i love comics for many reasons. First I love the idea of superheros, it really makes your mind imagine what it would be like if we had real superheros. There arent only comics featuring superheros either, there are ones about soldiers in the military, regular people with hightened abilities, and a lot more. There are movies, toys, and video games to go along with the comic book characters so collecting and enjoyment is endless. Another reason is i HATE reading books. I just cant sit their and read a book consisting of hundreds of pages of just words after words after words with no pictures to look at in between. Comics on the other hand have slightly less words, and awesome exciting story, and tons of action displayed in the beautiful art on every page. This leads me to my next point; the art is amazing! If the cover catches my attention i will probably buy it thats just how i am. The art inside and out is awesome and some times gory to add to the realism (hence why they arent for kids its hard to find a children-friendly comic book). Even after i finish a comic i still enjoy the art and even re-read it from time to time.

Now there are many other things that make comics awesome but i just named a few basics. Now a lot of people seem to think comic books are dumb, childish, stupid, etc. but those are the people who have never read them! Dont be afraid to go to your comic book store and ask for some help finding a good place to stop. Happy reading!
