Man of Steel (2013)


Alright, as requested, here is the review of the movie — The Man of Steel.  The movie opens with Super Man being born as the first naturally born baby in centuries.  His parents named him Kal El.  The counsel of Krypton is being informed by Jor El that their planet’s core is unstable.  When Zod attacks the counsel and takes Jor El hostage, a fight breaks out.  Jor rushes home to infuse his son with all the genetic codes of Kryptonians before sneding him to Earth.  Zod is charged for the murder of Jor and treason.  He is sentenced to imprisonment in the Phantom Zone.  On Earth, Kal El is known as Clark.  He is an outsider who often gets picked on.  He also has trouble controlling his abilities.  One day a tornado hits town and his adopted father, Jonathan Kent, is killed a mishap Clark could have easily prevented.  His adopted father stopped him from making a rescue attempt as the world is not ready to accept a superman.  After that Clark leads a nomadic life taking up jobs under false identities.  One day while working with a U.S. army team on an excavation, he finds the ship is from Krypton.  Using a key downloads his father’s personality and speaks to him.  He then gets his super suit which has the trademark “S”.  It means “hope” in his world.  Soon after Zod attacks Earth and Super man defeats him by snapping his neck as he was threatening a family of humans.  Afterwards superman becomes a reporter as it is one of the jobs where he can go into danger zones and which most people would not look twice at.  Some key differences include the movie’s theme song, the more violent Kryptonians and Super Man not wearing the classic undies.  The movie is very cool and is well-filmed I am looking forward to the sequel with Ben Affleck as Batman.  10 out of 10.

Avengers (2012)


Today on Starlord’s Quadrant, I am reviewing one of the best movies of all time–The Avengers or Avengers Assemble (in Britain).  The movie starts out with an unnamed character and the trickster god, Loki, planning on taking over the Earth.  We are then shown S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement Logistics Division) being attacked by Loki who then steals the most powerful object in the universe–the Tesseract, a.k.a. the Cosmic Cube.  Loki also mind controls Agent Barton, a.k.a. Hawkeye.  In response to the attack, Nick Fury (the director of S.H.I.E.L.D.) activates the Avengers Initiative.  Agent Romanoff (Black Widow) is sent to Calcutta to recruit Bruce Banner, the Hulk, to trace the Tesseract through its gamma radiation emissions.  Coulson recruits Stark to have him review the information on the Tesseract.  Loki is later captured by Captain America, Black Widow,  Thor and Stark as Iron Man.  While in the S.H.I.E.L.D Helicarrier, Loki causes the Avengers to bicker, leading to Loki’s escape and the apparent death of  S.H.I.E.L.D.’s top agent Coulson.  During the chaos, Hawkeye is released from mind control and the team  bonds again.  Now that the Avengers is on the frontier of war with Loki and an intergalactic army known as the Chitaturi, they put their differences aside and gear up.  After the amazing fight, Loki is taken back to Asgard to pay for his crimes.The Avengers disbands but not before enjoying some shwarma.  It is also revealed that Thanos is the mastermind behind the attack.

Thanos will be appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy; Coulson will return in The Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.; The Avengers will return in The Avengers Age of Ultron.

A great movie that deserves many sequels. 20 out of 10.
