Purple is the colour. I used to like purple. Still do. I think it’s a great colour. This TV show doesn’t have any humour in it whatsoever. It is serious, grim and dark full of drinking and swearing (actually not swearing but let me tell you, the comics have the f word in almost every bubble).

Jessica is an ex superhero troubled by her past demons. The demons being a mind controller called Kilgrave who used Jessica’s body for every dirty desire of his. Basically this show is Jessica vs Kilgrave.

It is shown on Netflix from Marvel. Same as Daredevil. But there is a huge difference. I liked this show (but not as much as Daredevil. I loved Daredevil). I’ll be honest, the only good thing in this show is David Tennant who plays Kilgrave. He does such a good job. You know in the show whenever someone tells him that he was violent or he murdered people or he raped them. He always declines and it makes you as viewer think well maybe he is telling the truth. And there’s one instance where he says he loves Jessica from his heart and you start to believe him knowing that he is a psychopath. That’s how good and manipulative David Tennant plays Kilgrave.

The girl who plays Jessica does a good job too of being a grumpy girl. She never smiles through the series. She is extremely rude and very like the Jessica from comics. Except for the swearing and smoking. Those two are a must for Jessica. I wish they would include her saying fucking in every sentence and smoking ciggys all around. That would be amazing.

The sex scenes were bad except one. The fight scenes were rubbish all the way through. There wasn’t any thrill involved. They was mystery though which kept you going watching all the episodes. Daredevil was like a mini cinematic movie in every episode. This show just feels so bland compare to that.

But the last scene was superb. I really loved how the ending all turned out to be. Anyway, I don’t think this is worth a re watch but still good.

We normally watch the superhero movies in the cinema. So I decided to go and watch this as it had been a while. I knew what to expect from this one though. Tons of space battles and stuff which I’m not a big fan of. The only other space film I watched in the cinema was Star Trek: The wrath of Khan and Star Wars: Episode I back in 2001.

As I said I am not very much a fan of space battles yet I seem to like them too somehow. Because this film brought back my childhood memories when we used to watch Star Trek on the TV all the time. I guess I am a confused soul when it comes to space films. Like them or not?

First of all, the film is filled with 80s music which is not everyone’s cup of tea. Star Trek (2013) was filled with classical music which was pretty much OK with me but still sounded a bit out of place. The music is good but probably good for those people who listened to it back in the day. This really explained why there were 40 to 45 olds in the house. So really you had to be a late 70s  baby to get the music. Unless you’re just into the music anyway. Anyway, moving on.

Let me just quickly go through the story because it is not very much impressive. Peter Quill steals an orb which he wants to sell but the orb is special and some forces are behind it, seeking it. Ronan the accuser and Thanos are interested. The whole film revolves around this stone which is very powerful and could destroy the whole galaxy.

The story is a bit lame but what make this movie is the characters. It is the characters who you fall in love with. We have a lot of characters here. Peter Quill, Gamora, Rocket, Drax, Groot, Yondu and even Ronan if you are a fan of him.

Every character gets enough screen time and you simply fall in love with them. The comedy was just near perfect. There were quite a few laugh out loud moments which made me laugh too, I’m surprised. The romance between Peter and Gamora is just perfect. There is a part where Peter gets close to Gamora and they begin to dance. I just loved that. I love Zoe Saldana and the way she portrayed Gamora, she gets 10/10. It is because of her I came to watch the film. In the end I will list my top five characters/moments.

The action was good. The space battles were really good. You know what is going on and who is who. Yondu and his arrow rocked. And I mean really rocked. He had so much less screen time but he was awesome. The least appealing character to me was Peter Quill himself. I know it sounds weird but I didn’t much like him. I think Rocket, Gamora and Groot literally stole the show.

I would rate this movie 8/10 if you can get past the 80s music. It was alright. I don’t mind. Now for my top five characters/moments. Starting from the bottom:

5)Groot: He was awesome. Innocent yet somehow clever too. I loved the end bit especially. Such a nice scene (no spoilers) it made my insides move with emotion.

4) Rocket’s comedy. Really he was the star of the movie. Keeping the movie alive with his talking and yapping. Missed him at the end but he played his role alright.

3) Yondu: This bad ass space pirate got less screen time but he rocked it man. Especially with his arrow and whistle and that bad ass accent, he’s at number 3.

2) Gamora played by Zoe Saldana: I love Zoe. Loved her in Star Trek and she came back. I already tweeted that she is made for superhero movies. She is a superb actress and I’m really a big fan of her. One of the scenes in this movie was a romantic situation between her and Peter. And the way she looked with her purple streaked hair, just perfect. The romance was well shown but a kiss at the end would have been lovely. Or did they kiss? I didn’t catch it.

1: You can guess. Go on. Yes, it is Thanos himself. He gets a little cameo and let me tell you, he fucking rocks it. He is such a motherfucker sitting on that seat. He owned that scene. It is a shame you only get to see him only once. Ronan is a pussy compared to Thanos. We want to see more of Thanos.

This movie was certainly better than the likes of Thor 2(I didn’t like that one). It was just almost perfect. 8/10, yo.

Thor: The Dark World

I went to see this in cinema and I wasn’t really looking forward to seeing it as I’m not a big fan of Thor. Even though I liked the first film and not because of Loki. It was because it had some kind of story to it.

The Dark World lacked that. And it also lacked character development. Things once again start with Loki and finish with Loki leaving us with an unsatisfied ending (I’m talking about the twist. It was so stupid).

When the trailer came out, I was like oh no Loki again. But his acting was good out of all of them. Thor and the rest was just average. The part where Thor’s mother defends herself was probably the best part out of the whole film.

All that Lokiness and then throw a bit of crap alien invasion for the story and you have a very unsatisfied film. Should have stick to one thing.

5/10.

And the post credits scene. Didn’t really make sense. What the hell is going on?

I went to watch Iron Man 3 last night and I was blown away by how amazing it was. Iron Man was awesome whereas Iron Man 2 kind of dipped down for me. I mean Machine vs Machine is kind of over rated.

This was awesome. A whole new concept. I am just glad this was not just another machine vs machine film. Something different and awesome. I won’t spoil it. Let’s just say it is something that will make you jump out of your seats.

Robert Jr was amazing. I mean he is Iron Man, the perfect one. There wasn’t much humour throughout the whole film because it was more of a darker toned film because we get to see Tony not in his normal being. Plus tradegies happen which makes Tony even more vulnerable but he fights his demons. He really does try. Humour wise I think it was really rushed at the end. Literally every line Tony says was funny which I really enjoyed. The ending scene was remarkable. At points it made me jump out of my seat.

I really loved how it all ended and how Tony wrapped up the trilogy. Yes, call it a trilogy because it is in the news that Robert might not do more Iron Man films because his contract has ended. Even my opinion is that this film has surpassed all the levels of awesomeness and it just could not get anymore better. Yes, start a new trilogy with a new actor which would be really hard because Robert is Iron Man and Marvel would think twice for doing it.

I’m going to give it 8.3 out of 10. Some emotional moments in there too so brace yourselves. Even more better if you have watched the previous two films too.
