I got my first paycheck yesterday(FINALLY!) and I decided to treat myself today. I wasn’t able to celebrate the mother’s day with my mom since it wasn’t her day off and she has work to do. And so instead, my cousin and I went to the mall to watch two movies: The Avengers and Dark Shadows.
Please please please, do not laugh because I only watched this movie today. I know that I shouldn’t have waited too long to watch it. But hey, better late than never right? Anyway, I really enjoyed it. I am a big fan of superhero movies and this one is a really good one. Since Captain America, I have been waiting for this movie to come out. Some people found The Avengers boring and I must say, I don’t understand why. It’s action-packed, the CGI and effects were brilliant, plus it wasn’t lacking on the humor department either. My only guess is that those who did not enjoy it are people who aren’t actually fans of superhero movie or big comic readers. I guess they were just people who watched the movie to be “in” and part of the fad. To me, the movie was great and the actors did very well. I particularly am drawn to Stark’s sarcastic and witty humor, Loki’s pain, and Hawkeye and Black Widow’s tandem. I enjoyed the movie very much.
Johnny Depp + Helena Bonham Carter + Eva Green + Tim Burton.
Uhm duh. What could be a reason not to watch this movie? This combination is perfect enough to drag me inside the movie house. Okay, so to the movie. Actually, I wasn’t much confident as to how the movie will go since it’s a vampire film. I was afraid that it would be like Twilight and all those trashy vampire/werewolf movies. Well, I am glad I still watched this one. It wasn’t a one-of-a-kind movie since Barnabus Collins, like any other vampire, is a blood-thirsty, manipulative and vengeful creature. But what made me like it is how time plays a different factor. In a lot of vampire books and series, the main character is usually immortal and lives through years and years. In this one, Barnabus was buried for two centuries and when he was finally awoken, he experience somewhat like a culture shock for his life and world was very different with the one he was awaken to. And also, the movie was hilarious plus Eve Green’s hot rack caught everyone’s attention. Good movie, usual Burton gothic picturesque, but not actually the best of the Burton-Depp tandem.
