The Fault In Our Extinction: Transformers: Age of Extinction Movie Review!

Fast Cars, Explosions here and there, Aliens become the hunter and the hunted, Plus the beautiful city of Hong Kong? That’s what Transformers: Age of Extinction was for me. It was just THAT awesome.

I don’t want to say too much on the movie, because i don’t want to give out spoilers. But i would like to tell my view of what i’ve seen. And what i’ve seen with Transformers was incredible. If you haven’t checked out the trailer yet, do click the link here to watch the trailer from Youtube.

First of all i just wanted to give kudos to Mark Wahlberg for doing such an awesome job at this movie. His acting was awesome, It wasn’t too corny, and it was probably a little weird to see him in a nerd-like father living in Texas, but it was somewhat a pretty good job. The cast was also fantastic and of course to top it all off, Stanley Tucci was also amazing. On his first scenes on the movie, i saw some of his portraits on the wall and kind of reminded me about Steve Jobs. And then the movie went along and he kept talking about design, and inventions and how he wanted to make the world a better place and all i could think about was that awesome apple guy who also tried to make this world a better place.

And who can also forget the girls on the movie? Nicola Peltz was no Megan Fox or Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, but she definitely proved herself on the role of Mark’s daughter. And also i’m not sure if you all noticed, But we had some pretty hot girls for Stanley’s Assistants. We have Melanie Specht, Victoria Summer and of course Abigail Klein. Oh and did i also mention Resident Evil: Retribution’s Bingbing Li was also here? 🙂

So alot has happened to Transformers: Age of Extinction, and i am satisfied with what i saw. Although the concept of human failure and ignorance is still evident, it’s kinda sticking out since Transformers 3. It’s sort of being (if not always) the only storyline for the Transformers Series. To be honest, i haven’t really payed much attention to Transformers as a kid, and i have vague memories of childhood as sitting down and watching Beat Wars: Transformers, but that’s basically it. So i guess it’s an added factor if you’ve been with Transformers from the very beginning. Also, don’t bother staying up to wait for a secret ending. There wasn’t any. But nonetheless, you didn’t watch it for the secret ending, you watched it because of this:

Ooops. Spoiler Alert. :)

So i’d recommend this movie for all those who want to see a Maserati, Pagani, Lamborgini and of course a yellow Camaro all in one movie, Robot aliens fighting each other and mankind as we know it and just the simple pleasure of watching things explode. Enjoy watching!


The Amazing Spiderman: Thoughts on the Web

If you haven’t heard anything about the movie, you can find some info here.

We saw the movie, unfortunately in 2D only, so that means less web-spinning action for us. But it’s safe to say the movie would have been awesome in 3D. A lot of movies being shown in theaters these days try their best to include 3D scenes as much as possible, so the audience can enjoy the best out of the film. The Amazing Spiderman had alot of scenes involving 3D action, much more than the Spiderman Trilogy had (since 3D was still slowly being released to the public at the time of the Spiderman Trilogy) which was a downside for all of us 2D’ers. But nonetheless, the movie had epic scenery, and the fight scenes were cool. Personally, i think Andrew Garfield had much more spunk in being Peter Parker compared to Tobey Maguire.

And the thing i loved most was Stan Lee’s scenes where he always had to be part of every marvel movie. At some point, i kept looking for him in every Marvel movie, and i was fortunate enough to laugh and snicker a bit when i saw him as a School Librarian with Headphones in this movie. 🙂 so it’s really something to look forward to his roles as well. 🙂

Something interesting enough, there was a secret ending here. I thought secret endings only existed in Avengers – Related Marvel movies, but i was proven wrong by this movie. If you have been with Peter Parker from the start like in the comics, you may have an idea who Dr. Conner was talking to. So i guess from the secret ending it’s safe to say that there is a Spiderman part 2. 🙂
