San Diego Comic-Con 2014

Today is officially the fourth day of this years’ Comic-Con. Yes, I am officially four days late to the party.

What is Comic-Con about? It is basically a convention for geeks aka “THE SUPER BOWL for NERDS” [as Stephen Amell kindly said]. Every year this convention takes place in San Diego, California, and you can buy tickets to go and take part of this great community. You can cosplay as your favorite character and go to different panels and see your favorite actors and interact with them, etc.

I haven’t kept track of this years’ Comic-Con like I do every year. However, I am fangirling so much over every picture that comes up on my dashboard. I honestly cannot remember how long it has been since I have fangirled so much! I mean, all the feelings that are running through me when I see all these amazing actors from movies and tv shows that I love.

Until now, the lucky people that attended Comic-Con had the chance to see the trailers for Mockingjay, the new season of Arrow, a sneak peak at the new season of Game of Thrones and they also met the casts of Game of Thrones, The Avengers, Teen Wolf, Arrow and many more.

So now, I am going to put a whole lot of pictures from what happened at Comic-Con so far. Just so you know, they are not in a specific order and I will provide you with the links if you need/want them. Also, these pictures are not mine!!!

And here is a funny article about Comic-Con.

These are some of the stars that made an appearance at Comic-Con 2014. I promised myself that once I get a job and can be fully responsible of my actions, I will go to Comic-Con. I am not ashamed of saying that I am a fangirl and that I love movies and tv shows more than a normal person. It is one of those life goals that I plan to achieve and cross off of my list.

Hope you liked this random post, and let me know if you are excited about Comic-Con and if you want to go or have already been.

Until next time, stay geeky,

New TV Show- The Flash- Pilot Episode

 

I was having a chilled night at home, and decided that I wanted to watch something, opening my usual TV Series streaming link, I see that they have the pilot episode for THE FLASH! Of course, the fangirl in me went crazy and loaded it the next second.

If you didn’t know, The Flash is a new TV Series, from the producers of Arrow-another amazing show. Arrow and Flash, were created as Comic books at first, after which they decided to make these TV Series, and with a bit of luck we could get a movie with a lot of these superheroes.  I unfortunately have never read a DC Comic book, or any comic book for that matter. [I believe that out there are animated cartoons with the DC heroes and other movies, but I might be wrong.]

The TV Series is programmed to come out this October. However, they released the pilot episode yesterday for some reason. Not that I am complaining.

From the very beginning I had goose flesh because I was having huge expectations from the show, and I was not let down at all!

The pilot really manages to mess with the viewers mind, in such a way that they know for sure that you just have to come back this October to watch the next episode.

The CGI [computer generated imagery-or special effects] , in my opinion is perfectly realized. I of course, saw probably all the superhero movies recently released by Marvel, so I can say that I can spot bad CGI.  

As for the actors, I can only tip my hat to the producers. Every freaking actor is perfect [especially the actor playing the main character] for their role, and it also does not hurt that they are easy on the eyes :D. As a girl, I can confirm that once again, every actor is beautiful.

As far as characters go, they seem to have a good base. And what I mean by that is that they have a good story line behind them. In the first episode we are introduced with Barry Allen’s  past. Well, not much of it, but enough to give us a sense of his past. And also, it shows how he becomes this super human. In the pilot we also are faced with some villains. I want to say something about someone, but that will spoil your view and I will restrain myself, but after I’ve seen the ending, I wanted to yell I KNEW IT! [BTW, with that ending, they will make sure that you come back in October to see why and what is going on- to be honest, I was confused as well.]

Just as Arrow, the plot of the new TV Series The Flash, manages to keep you on the edge of your seat. Of course, for those who read the comic books it might not come as a surprise, but for those “noobs” like me, is very enticing.

Another thing that reminds me of Arrow after watching this episode is the humor. Throughout the episode I found a couple of moments where I could just hear myself laugh out loud. There were not many moments as such, but I really think that the series will have its dose of humor.

Besides the humor, there were also some emotional scenes. I don’t want to give anything away, but I wanted to highlight the fact that this series will not only be fun and action packed, it probably will also be an emotional roller coaster, which is amazing! A series that manages to have so many elements combined, is sure to be a success.

I do not regret spending 47 minutes of my life watching The Flash. It is definitely one of the better choices I made this week. However, I wish October wouldn’t be so far away. But with this pilot, the creators really managed to capture my attention and they made me make a note in my calendar for when the next episode is out. I really think this show will be a hit!

I recommend it to everyone! I mean, if you love an action packed, humorous and also emotional TV Show, this is for you! I knew I would like it even before I even saw this episode, but now, I am sure that everyone that likes to spice their lives with a bit of fantasy will love this series!

Here is the extended trailer for the show [I couldn’t find the short one, but I am sure that you will enjoy this as well]. Enjoy!

*DISCLAIMER* 

I was not paid to make this review. I just saw the pilot and wanted to express my honest opinion on it. I felt the need to mention this, so that my review won’t be taken down for no reason.

Until next time, stay safe,

Lexi xoxo!!!

Movie review “Thor: The Dark World”

Thor-2-The-Dark-World-Logo

On this fine Sunday, I decided to go see a movie with my father and best friend. What we decided to see? Well that is easy! Thor, of course. How could we miss this great opportunity to see a Marvel movie on a fine day like today. The only drawback of this decision was that this movie fucked up with my emotions completely!!!

I will try to not give out anything of the movie plot, and only talk about it generally. Though I am still announcing that there might be spoilers, considering that I don’t know your understanding of a spoiler. So *SPOILER ALERT*:

When I arrived at the cinema I was expecting an Action-Drama movie. It’s not that it wasn’t, but for this movie you will honestly need to take some napkins with you.  I couldn’t believe that an action packed movie will ever make me cry, let alone my father. You should have seen my face when my father told me that he cried.

But let’s start with the beginning. I have yet to see a movie that I didn’t enjoy, and even though at some movies I have some negative comments,  for this one I have only good things to say.

The movie introduces you directly into the story and starting with  great narration and extraordinary characters. Also, I do not like 3D movies if they are not animations, because the details tend to overpower the 3D scenes. And it is just a waste of money to see a 3D movie if it doesn’t have any really intense scene that will look good in 3D.

The amount of work that was put in details when this movie was created is astounding. The CGI work throughout the whole movie was marvellous. And the fact that the movie was in 3D made it even more impressive. I saw every little speck of ash and dust and even the smallest rock on the ground had every detail that it needed in order to look real. I have seen, maybe all the Marvel movies, and I knew that they had amazing CGI work, but it wasn’t always so great combined with the 3D aspect. And by that I mean that they either made the details look amazing, or the 3D very spectacular, but I don’t think they ever had such a great combination of the two before.

Also, the plot of the movie was insane! I won’t tell you anything that happened but I will say that I had to collect my jaw from the floor at some point in the movie, cried like a baby after that and by the end I was soooo very angry.  I would have definitely liked a tear alert so that I could have grabbed some napkins when I was buying my beverage. I haven’t read any of the comic books, seeing that  we don’t have them, but if this is how Stan Lee originally wrote Thor, well…my god, this man is a freaking genius! I think he knew that the audience will be a sobbing mess right in the middle of the movie.

And yes I am one of those people who love Loki more than Thor. Why? The way Tom Hiddleston acts in every movie, makes me love him as an actor and made me love Loki. And…well… he tore my heart out in a scene from the first movie:

tumblr_m9empvmYYl1rb0cxho1_500

Loki: So, I’m no more than another stolen relic? Locked up, here, until you might have use of me!

Odin: Why do you twist my words?

Loki: You could have told me what I was, from the beginning! Why didn’t you?

Odin: You’re my son. I wanted only to protect you from the truth.

Loki: What? Because I…I…I…I’m the monster that parents tell their children about at night?

Odin: No! No!

Loki: It all makes sense now. Why you favored Thor, all these years! Because no matter how much you claim to love me, you could never have a Frost Giant sitting on your throne of Asgard!

Yes, that is why I love Loki more than Thor.

As I wasn’t expecting the great combination of details and 3D art, I also wasn’t expecting so many jokes and laughable matters in an action-packed movie.I mean there are funny scenes in all Marvel movies, but I think this one had the most. And that is another aspect that I absolutely love about this movie is the funny-ironic lines between the two Gods [you know them], that made the movie even better than before.

The cast was crazy good. I know I am raving about this movie, but it really was good! And that is why I just have to talk about the cast. I just don’t know what to say about them other than: they were amazing. I am going to enumerate the best in my opinion: Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster and Sir Anthony Hopkins as Odin. I think that the amount of talent these four actors have combined is equal to a ton of mercury, and that is a lot! They played their roles perfectly, you could see that they gave their best in playing these amazing characters, and their great acting really affects one’s [my] emotions. I don’t have anything bad to say about these extraordinary people, other than that they are great actors and they did a hell of a job with this movie. And of course the awesomeness of this movie is due to the whole cast that includes the director, the stunt men and everyone that participated in creating this movie.

The huuuge amount of action, combined with drama and so many comedic scenes, the gripping plot and the amazingly talented cast make this movie a total worth seeing  masterpiece. I recommend it to all people that love Marvel and a good action movie. Cannot wait for the next one 😀 !

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

I cannot conclude my review without thanking Mr. Stan Lee for creating these amazing stories that bring happiness all over the world into the lives of children and not only . Thank you!

P.S. Do not forget to stay for all the credits!!! Marvel always has those post-credit scenes that you really don’t want to miss 🙂 !

Until next time,

Lexi xx 🙂
