Comic Book Movie Mania in The Philippines

I was very happy that 3 comic book movies were shown for 3 weeks straight.

KICK-ASS was definitely a KICK ASS movie! It was actually an improved version of the comic book. I’m just sad that it didn’t do as well in the box office. But hey, it trended on Twitter! Plus Hit-Girl just rocked in the movie! Mark Millar is just an awesome comic book writer! He really wants to make his fans happy!

THE LOSERS was also a straight out fun action movie. I thought the cast was well thought of. The casting team did an awesome job getting Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Clay. Zoe Saldana just solidified herself as a new geek goddess. She was just plain bad-ass!!! I thought Cougar was well casted too and Chris Evans as Jensen was surprisingly entertaining. The “Don’t stop believing” sequence was excellent!

Finally IRON MAN 2. Now we all have HIGH expectations on the movie. It may not have been as awesome as the first flick but it was still awesome in its own right. The addition of Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer, Scarlett Johansson as The Black Widow and Mickey Rourke as Whiplash gave more spice to the movie. Don Cheadle was an excellent replacement for Rhodey plus the War Machine sequence was marvelous!!! Ahhhh… fandom… Nerdgasm at its best! Of course, Robert Downey Jr. just carries the part of Stark so well and Gwyneth as Pepper is just sweet. What I did love about the film was the incorporation of Matt Fraction’s Invincible Iron Man elements. Only the geeks will get it and be happy about it and it was a job well executed!!!

It’s awesome how the Philippines gets all 3 movies on time. Iron Man 2 ahead even!!! It’s all about fighting piracy 🙂

It’s good to be a geek 🙂
