"Iron Man 2" Review

Posted by Maki On 2 comments

Rating: 4.2/5.0
 Because I am an avid Marvel fan, I watched this movie in 2D Digital Theater. And I am so satisfied! At first, my purpose for watching Iron Man 2 is just for entertainment. I did not expect too much because it might be an overrated movie again. But I was astonished by the smooth blend of special FX, fight scenes and humor. Iron Man 2 is Iron Man x 2!

Yes, you heard it right! Unlike other Marvel movies which focuses on the character development and comics storytelling, Iron Man 2 attained a new level of humor that will surely make you laugh on most part of the movie!

I do not want to provide spoilers because this movie can really speak for itself.So I will just mention the outstanding performances of the cast. Robert Downey Jr. portrays Tony Stark/Iron Man in a remarkable way, you cannot ask for more! What about Don Cheadle who did a good job wearing that War Machine suit! He complements Stark well and I guess Marvel's decision to take him instead of Terrence Howard is a good one. But wait, we should not forget Scarlett Johansson's role as Black Widow. She looks amazing and sexy with her costume. Black Widow's fight scenes which include her rey-mysterio-move simply entertain the audience. Of course this movie will not be complete without the villain, Mickey Rourke who portrays Ivan Vanko/Whiplash did a great job as well. The tattoos on his body are ferocious and he also added some humor in the story. Yes, a powerful yet not-so-serious villain!

Overall, this movie is the best so far  this year. It is a must see movie especially on digital theater because you may want to experience the vibrations on your seats when Iron Man and War Machine team up against Vanko. But there is just a little downside in the movie because in my opinion the fight scenes of Iron Man and War Machine as tag team are so limited.

Nick Fury's appearance is also a clear indication that The Avengers are going to be seen altogether in the near future! Ehem 2012! 

A little tip for those who will watch this movie on cinema, do not leave until you see a sneak peek of the next Marvel movie. It will be shown after all the credits are finished. So check it out!

Whiplash

Black Widow

War Machine

"Dancing with the Stars" leads all TV Series

Posted by Maki On Wednesday, April 28, 2010 0 comments



Survivor: Heroes v. Villains tops TV ratings on Canada last week, but US viewers say otherwise. "Dancing with the Stars" danced its ratings all the way to the top, beating favorites like American Idol, The Mentalist, Glee and Survivor. On the TV networks, Fox got the most number of TV viewers with an average of 9.2 million.

Here is the top 10 list of most-watched TV series last week:

  1. “Dancing With the Stars” Monday, ABC, 21.1 million
  2. “American Idol” Tuesday, Fox, 19.7 million
  3. “American Idol” Wednesday, Fox, 18.8 million
  4. “The Mentalist” CBS, 15 million
  5. “Dancing With the Stars” Tuesday, ABC, 13.6 million
  6. “CSI” CBS, 13.4 million
  7. “Glee” Fox, 13 million
  8. “Survivor” CBS, 11.9 million
  9. “The Big Bang Theory” CBS, 11.7 million
  10. “CSI: Miami” CBS, 11.7 million

Here are the average viewers of different networks during prime time:
  1. Fox, 9.2 million
  2. CBS, 8.4 million
  3. ABC, 7.4 million
  4. NBC, 5.7 million
  5. The CW, 1.7 million
The battle of different TV series will surely rise this week because some of them are on their last few remaining episodes already. But as what TV experts say, "TV ratings are so unpredictable." 










Giving Russell the hidden immunity idol is a bad move, trusting him to be your ally is worse and trying to trick him is worst and fatal. Unfortunately, this series of undesirable and risky actions is the summary of what JT has done on the last two episodes. 

No doubt JT plays Survivor well, he even got a million in Tocantins, but he encountered a different scenario in Survivor: Heroes v. Villains. He did not have any ally as trustworthy as Stephen and he played against the most dangerous duo in Survivor history, Russell and Parvati. 

Here are some interview questions and answers after he was voted out last Thursday. Courtesy of BuddyTV and People's TV Watch.

Were you consciously revisiting your Tocantins strategy of forming an alliance across tribal lines?

I don't feel I was revisiting my strategy from Tocantins. I am always looking for openings in the other tribe. I felt like Candace was going to be gunning for me and I had to make a move.

Could you tell anything about the Villains' tribal dynamic from watching how they interacted during the challenges?

After Rupert kept announcing the fact that he thought there was a woman's alliance, the Villains began playing it up.

What did Rupert ultimately decide about Sandra's conflicting version of events? Did you ever convince him that she was lying?

I don't think Rupert ever talked with her again. She didn't want Russell to see her talking. None of us ever got to talk. 

Did you stay in the endurance immunity challenge as long as you could have?

I did stay as long as I could. I tried not to let it show. That challenge is made for people with small feet. I knew when Parvati stepped down, something was up. 

You seemed to like James, but he came across as a bully this season. What further insight could you offer us?

James and I hit it off really well. We have a lot in common and share a similar work ethic. James is not a bad guy at all. He just didn't like the drama.

Can you share any fun stories from Ponderosa?

I would definitely say to check out the Ponderosa clips. They will be something fun to move your hips to. Me, Coach & Courtney! What a team! 

You seem to think being Southern guys bonded you with Russell.

I did fall a little bit for that but I don’t feel like I was as confident as it appeared on TV. We actually knew Russell was not with us when we made it to tribal council. Although we didn’t believe Rupert like we should have, we did know that Russell was not with us and they had one idol for sure. We figured they had one but we never counted on the second.

How shocked were you to see Parvati had two idols?

We were really stunned. We kind of shipped Russell off perfectly thinking we were voting for Sandra because we knew he wasn’t with us and we wanted him to vote Sandra and us to vote Jerri, and we fooled him but we had no idea Parvati had two idols and she would give one to Jerri, so when she gave it to Sandra, we were like, “That’s great. Russell went back and told them,” but as soon as they took the other one out, I knew I was gone.


Was it Rupert’s idea that there was an all-female alliance at the Villain’s camp, or were you thinking that too?

It was when Tyson went home that I thought to myself that I knew the girls were teaming up and taking out the big players. Then, when Rob went home, I was like, “Certainly something is going on.” I tried so hard to get in contact with someone over there to find out what was going on. I never would have expected it was Sandra in trouble as opposed to the only guy left. I was just a victim of Russell’s game!

So how did the note-writing to Russell come about? 

Amanda's luxury item was colored pencils and a little notepad, so we did have stuff there [to write with]. But there’s a lot that went in to the note. It almost looked humiliating watching it, but … we only sent the note to be safe because we didn’t know if we had to throw it to Russell, or hide it for him to find it. We didn’t know how we were going to give it to him … Chances are, if he’s not with us, everybody’s gonna see this, but who cares. That was our thinking. The whole tribe wanted to be there for the letter and put their two cents in. It looked more like solely my confidence in Russell, which wasn’t the case.

Was there something or someone you had in Tocantins that could have helped you this time around?

There’s no doubt! If Stephen had been there this time, we would have thought this move out a lot more, for sure. I didn’t have anyone I could really trust.

Had you been gunning for Parvati since the start?

She is a strong strategical player and guys always seem to fall for Parvati’s sexiness. I wanted Parvati gone as soon as I knew she was on the show!

No one knew Russell’s game. Would things have been different had you known?

Who knows? No one can say but there’s definitely one thing for sure — he wouldn’t have gotten a free idol from me!

"The Mentalist" leads Thursday TV Showdown!

Posted by Maki On Sunday, April 25, 2010 0 comments

Entertainment gurus said that Thursday is TV Series Day! If you want to see several TV series battle for ratings then this day is a perfect one. Let us now see the results of this week's showdown!




According to Nielsen's data, here are the list of top shows: (Show - Number of Viewers)


8 PM:
  1. CBS: Survivor: Heroes v. Villains - 11.8 million
  2. FOX: Bones - 8.8 million
  3. ABC: FlashForward - 5.7 million
  4. NBC: 30 Rock - 4.2 million
  5. NBC: Community - 3.9 million
  6. The CW: The Vampire Diaries - 3.3 million
9 PM:
  1. CBS: CSI - 13.3 million
  2. ABC: Private Practice - 7.4 million
  3. NBC: The Office - 6.4 million
  4. FOX: Fringe - 5.9 million
  5. NBC: 30 Rock - 5.2 million
  6. The CW: Supernatural - 2.7 million
10 PM:
  1. CBS: The Mentalist - 14.8 million
  2. ABC: Grey's Anatomy (rerun) - 4.4 million
  3. NBC: The Marriage Ref - 4.3 million
Overall, The Mentalist got the largest number of audience with 14.8 million. CBS topped this week's Thursday ratings in all hours from 8-10pm while CBS comedies got one of their lowest ratings this year. 

Well, the spoilers are all correct and this episode finally shows how Peter confronted Walter on his true identity. The situation should have been better if Walter said it himself instead of Peter knowing it through that bridge-crossing-universe event.








Shape shifters are also part of this episode as they plotted the transfer of the guy named "Mr. Secretary" from the other universe to ours. This all occurred through the bridge-crossing-universe event. The story became more interesting now that the transfer was successful. So what will happen next? Why did they transfer one man if they can go for a whole army? What will be the role of Mr. Secretary? Will Mr. Secretary be Nimoy? Well, we just need to wait for the answers on the next episodes.

"The Back-up Plan" Review

Posted by Maki On Saturday, April 24, 2010 0 comments


Rating: 3.2/5.0
This movie starts in the doctor's office with Zoe (Jennifer Lopez) getting an artificial insemination, then the taxi encounter with Stan (Alex O'Loughlin) follows right away. After those two events, you can skip the rest, go directly to the ending and you will have the same story.

This movie even took 40 minutes to get my complete attention! I spent the first few minutes concentrating on my popcorn and mountain dew. Then the date night scene started the fun and after that, I'm bored again. You can even take a nap and still understand the story. Why? Because the story goes this way, get pregnant-argue-reconcile-argue-reconcile-give birth.

Jennifer Lopez is awesome on some scenes but it does not mean that she did a great job overall. She made me laugh for three times (Yes, I counted it!) but I will surely forget those scenes after watching Iron Man 2. The movie is also predictable. Just watch the trailer and add the usual ending of a romantic comedy and poof, you got the whole movie! 

If you want to have fun then watch the movie but do not expect too much from it. Bring some foods because you will surely need it. Promise!

Movie Description:

After years of dating, Zoe has decided waiting for the right one is taking too long. Determined to become a mother, she commits to a plan, makes an appointment and decides to go it alone. That same day, Zoe meets Stan - a man with real possibilities. Trying to nurture a budding relationship and hide the early signs of pregnancy becomes a comedy of errors for Zoe and creates confusing signals for Stan. When Zoe nervously reveals the reason for her unpredictable behavior, Stan commits fully and says he's in. Never before has love seen a courtship where a wild night of sex involves three in a bed - Stan, Zoe and the ever-present massive pregnancy pillow. Or, where 'date night' consists of being the 'focal point' at a near-stranger's water birth which does for kiddie pools what "Jaws" did for swimming in the ocean. The real pregnancy test comes when both of them realize they really don't know each other outside of hormonal chaos and birth preparations. With the nine month clock ticking, both begin to experience cold feet. Anyone can fall in love, get married and have a baby but doing it backwards in hyper-drive could be proof positive that they were made for each other.

Survivor S20E10: Going Down in Flames

Posted by Maki On Friday, April 23, 2010 0 comments


Parvati strikes again!

Everyone thought that the merge will be the biggest event this episode. But everyone is surprised because Parvati used not one, but two Immunity Idols on one of the craziest tribal councils in the history of Survivor! Sadly, the casualty is J.T. But the good thing is that he didn't go home with empty hands because he still have the "Dumbest Survivor Ever" crown!

There are still lots of stuff to discuss about this episode. One is Russell Hantz' Farmville strategy! Plant the Russell seed on your head and you will be plucked out of the game later on. 

"I swear on my kids that I am on board with y'all" - Russell
This statement shows that Russell did not feel a complete control of the game. He did a Fairplay kind of thing by using family members to deceive others. Well, you can't blame him because it's all worth it!



What about Amanda? We all know that Parvati stole the million dollars from her in Micronesia. Maybe, that is the reason why she is trying her best to outwit Parvati early in the merge. But Amanda's acting job is simply awful! Even Sugar will not believe her for that! Look at her face when she was lying to Parvati, come on Amanda you have better acting skills than that. With what she did to Parvati, I think her head is already on  the chopping block.   

Well the Villains has a 5-4 advantage now but we do not know how will Sandra act on the next days! So lets just wait for the next episode of Survivor: Heroes vs Villains!

Confirmed: Whedon to Direct Marvel's The Avengers

Posted by Maki On Thursday, April 22, 2010 0 comments


The long wait is over because finally, Marvel Studios in the final negotiations in tapping Buffy the Vampire Slayer architect Joss Whedon to direct the movie, The Avengers. This movie will be a huge treat for Marvel fans because of the inclusion of Marvel's all-star comic team. Leading the superheroes in the movie is Iron Man. The audience will also see Captain America, Thor, and the SHIELD leader Nick Fury. Later additions of other heroes can occur so you should watch out for that!

But before the release of this movie, Marvel fanatics should also watch out for the last four Marvel movies under Paramount Studios. These are the Iron Man 2 which will be shown this May, Captain America which will be started this summer in Europe, Thor which is in the production stage and Runaways which details will be released later by Marvel Studios.

Whedon has a huge plan in maximizing the potential of this movie. He is not a beginner in creating similar movies but this one is his biggest directing project so far. Marvel even plan to include the individual superhero movies as an intro for The Avengers. If this will happen then we can expect a more interesting and exciting movie with a little flashback of the past.

The tentative release date of The Avengers is on the first weekend of May 2012. So if you really want to see this movie then you should better mark your calendar.

Another breaking news for Star Trek fanatics. We will surely miss one great character who portrayed Mr. Spock in Star Trek movies, Mr. Leonard Nimoy.

Leonard Nimoy, 79, will have his last appearance on the sci-fi series Fringe. He will be playing the important role of William Bell. The Fringe cast expressed their overwhelming gratitude on Nimoy's role on the blockbuster TV series. But do not worry because you can still see Nimoy on reruns of Star Trek and replays of his movies. 

Nimoy is a professional actor and director for 60 years already. So I think he really did enough and it is time for him to enjoy a private life. He is also a successful poet, musician and photographer. He was portraying Mr. Spock since 1966.

Unfortunately for Mr. Spock fans, you will not see Nimoy anymore on the next Star Trek movie which will be released on 2012. 




More noise for Glee at Gay Media Awards

Posted by Maki On Sunday, April 18, 2010 0 comments


My classmates keep on talking about Glee. They are all amazed of the characters and the storyline. Some even skipped an important meeting for our graduation just to see the Glee's latest episode last April 14. They say that Glee is for everyone. Some can even relate to the story and they are really proud of it.

As an award for Glee's recognition on gays, Glaad media awards named it as the Best Comedy Series in US. They say that Glee portrays the gay community in a positive manner. Glee Creator Ryan Murphy also announced that Kurt will enter a gay relationship as the series go on. I am excited to hear my friends' reactions about this topic.

It is evident that people nowadays are open to same sex relationships. If Glee has gay partners, Grey's Anatomy has plenty of lesbian relationships. Most countries accept that this kind of relationships really happen. But on some parts of the world, wherein people are still conservative, some scenes pertaining to this issue are being removed when shown on TV.

They say that the world is evolving and we need to accept the fact that changes do occur. I will not be shocked if there will be more gay and lesbian portrayals on TV series and movies in the future. I will also not be surprised if more awards similar to Glaad will rise and represent the gay community.


Erik of Survivor Micronesia wears the crown of "Survivor's Dumbest Move". But now, it is not the case anymore as JT gave Russell Hantz a hidden immunity idol last episode!

Giving Russell the hidden immunity idol is like handing him the million dollars. Russell is dangerous without the idol and he is so deadly when he has it (Samoa witnessed it all). Now that he and Parvati have individual immunity idols, they can control the whole game until the end. The King and Queen of Survivor will be too dangerous on the next episodes so we better watch them out.

But something can still happen especially that the merge is coming next week. Will Amanda flip and join Parvati? This is a decision that she should make wisely. Remember that she was defeated by Parvati on jury votes last Survivor Micronesia. But if she choose otherwise then her head can be on the chopping block because she is a runner both on China and Micronesia. She has what it takes to stay until the end.

I guess lets just wait for the next episode because this can be the turning point of this season. I hope no one will do another dumb move because we should let JT feel his crown for some more.
