As far as I remembered, the last Avengers movie ended on such a happy note with the heros part ways and go on with their life. The suddenly this movie started off with a war, was I not surprised. But then, Avengers was about neverending wars, the evils keep coming one after another.
The thing that keeps me being loyal to Avengers movies besides the usual awesome action scenes is the humor. I love how they always managed to slip in several funny parts despite the seriousness. I find that interesting because a too heavy movie could keep the peoples away because a movie was supposed to be, besides sending a message, in my opinion, a stress-reliever. Because that what people say, when they are stressed, they want to watch a movie and in my opinion, Avengers succeed in that part. Eventhough it is categorized as an action film, I actually enjoyed and had fun watching it.
Back to the movie, it is not the first time where a crisis happened to the teamwork within the Avengers but I am actually quite frustrated with Iron Man in this movie. I mean, could a man ever be this stubborn? (ーー;) I am no scientist nor a genius but really, is he for real think that robots could keep peace in this humankind world? But then, it just shows that Avengers are, after all, humans (except for Thor, that is) where they are not perfect. And the fact that Hawkeye have such a perfect family in secret all this time. I am just glad that Captain America always balance out everything at the end. Oh, and the new Avengers! Totally digging the twins since they appeared eventhough too bad one of them didn't last that long.
My rating: ★★★★
To be honest, I have never watched the earlier series of Fast & Furious, therefore I am not familiar with the story and the characters but there was many people around me that had say this is a must-watch and an amazing movie so I decided to give it a go. I had to say, my friends were not lying.
It was not hard to grasp the role of each characters even for a first-timer like me as they make it quite easy to understand the situation. The action scenes in this movie was among the most amazing scenes I have ever seen in my whole life ＼（Ｔ∇Ｔ）／ The drama parts was not be underestimate too as it managed to made me cry a few times (and I hate to do it in a cinema, really （。-＿-。）) The scene where Letty got her memories back, when Brian talked in the phone with Mia, and not too forget, the flashback at the end of the movie (this part really gets me like T_T) The director have done such a good job that I need to give him a pat in the back.
I remember we took quite a time to came back to reality after it ended and stayed in our seats. It also made me think that I really need to watch it again from the first series because I thought this was the last one. But then, they just announced that there would be Fast & Furious 8 in 2017. Oh well, need to get prepared for it /goes and downloading all FF series/
My rating: ★★★★★
Nowadays, there was too many movies where the plot involved Earth destructions, so I was quite happy when this movie doesn't have the same obvious plot. I never read the novel so I did watch without nothing a thing, and I like it that way because, well, who love spoilers? （￣ー￣） To describe in in simple words, it was about a group of boys who was trapped in some kind of place surrounded with tall walls around them. It reminds me to the the first Hunger Game movie, if you know what I mean. Trapped in a place where they have to find ways to survive, except without the killing each other part. Then, a part of the wall open in certain period but it was full of maze that needed to be solved, and that explained the movie's title. One thing that I really love about this movie is the handsome and hot characters (bless the casting director (´∀｀)♡). Recognized Will Poulter from The Millers, then there is Dylan, Thomas Sangster, Kihong Lee, Chris Sheffield and more. This really deserved the movie bunch of fangirls, I had to say. In terms of action, it was okay on some parts but it was quite lacking as the creatures(?) died quite easily. I mean, the old Gladers have spent years on running away from it then the male lead arrived, accidentally went into the maze and bom! he managed to killed one. Well, isn't that not so interesting. Either way, with the arrival of the last and the only female Glader, I'm looking forward to what the sequel movie will prepare for us.
My rating: ★★★
