1.Captain America: Civil War


When I first heard about this film, I was really excited because it will feature new superhero’s.

Information about Captain America: Civil War

This film is produced by Marvel studios. First, I will tell you about the actors of the film. This film cast includes Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Emily VanCamp, Tom Holland, Frank Grillo, William Hurt, and Daniel Brühl. 

This film is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo. You can say that It is the sequel to Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It held its world premiere in Los Angeles on April 12, 2016, and was released in the United States on May 6th, 2016, in 3D and IMAX 3D.

Trailer

Let’s talk about the trailer of the film. The first trailer of the film was released in November 2015. In the trailer we can see some new characters besides Captain America and Barnes. We can see most of the Avenger’s characters in this film. Barnes is the old friend of Captain America. If you don’t know the whole story, please watch previous films and catch up. 

Well, this film caught the eye of the audience because title says it all, a civil war. In previous marvel movies like Avengers and Avengers 2, we have seen a common enemy. But in this movie we see superhero fighting another superhero. It’s very interesting to watch the fight between two superhero teams.

The Story and Review of Captain America: Civil War

So now I will tell you about the story of the film. In the beginning, we see Barnes tied up on a chair in Hydra facility which is controlled by some country's military force. A man comes up to Barnes and read some code words which some triggers the switch inside Barnes. Then Barnes is given a mission which he completes successfully. Well, in the present day as shown in the film, some Avengers characters are trying to stop an attack on the institute of infectious diseases. This is the first battle scene in the film where we can see Captain America in action. Elizabeth Olsen in trying to save Captain America, accidentally blows up the whole building. This is the turning point of the film. She starts feeling guilty. And news starts broadcasting Avengers as a threat. 

There should be accountability for the action of Avengers. So some Avengers agree to work with government, including Iron Man. But Captain America refuses the agreement. So the government gets the tip on the location of Barnes. Captain reaches to him first and try to convince him. But military breaks in. so another fighting seen starts. Here Panther appears on the scene and starts fighting Barnes. I was blown away from the entry of the Panther. It was epic. So in the end all get arrested. So a man come into a prison and read those code words to Barnes. Barnes turns into a fighting robot and break through the prison. Captain believes that its not Barnes’s fault, so he defends him. Now Captain and Iron Man start recruiting new members for their teams. We can see Spider-Man on Iron Man side. In this movie Spider-Man is much younger.  We can see the Ant Man. 

The fight between Captain’s team and Iron Man’s team happens at the airport. I must say this fight is epic. Barnes escapes in the end. Barnes goes to places where it all started. Captain follows Barnes. The rest of the team of Captain goes to prison. Iron Man gets the location of Barnes and fly to the place. Now this is a very important scene. The man who first time triggers the soldier in Barnes was also there. He shows a video to Iron Man in which his parents got killed by Barnes. This scene was very emotional for Iron Man. Iron Man lost his mind and wants to kill Barnes. So fight starts between Iron Man versus Barnes and Captain. In the end Iron Man comes to his senses and stop fighting. Captain America disappears from the Avengers, but he says in the movie that he will be there where he will be needed.

Final Thoughts

I think this is the best movie of 2016. It has everything. Action, comedy and thrill. The story of the movie is also strong. I would totally recommend it to everyone.

2.Deadpool

Deadpool is a very different type of superhero movie. We might not even call it a superhero movie. 

Information about Deadpool

The main cast includes Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T.J. Miller, Gina Carano, Leslie Uggams, Brianna Hildebrand, and Stefan Kapičić. The film is directed by Tim Miller and written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Deadpool premiered in Paris on February 8, 2016, and was released on February 12 in the United States.

Trailer

Now let’s talk about the first trailer of the film. The first trailer of the film was released in august 2015 by the 20th century fox. In the beginning of the trailer we can see Wade Wilson is suffering from cancer. We can also see Morena, Wade’s girlfriend. He is worried about his cancer and wants to get better so he can spend more time with his girlfriend. 

As we can see in the trailer, Wade is drinking in the bar. A mysterious looking guy comes to him. He says that he can make Wade better and somehow he can cure his cancer. The offer seems unreal to Wade. Wade thinks the mysterious man is messing around with him. But Wade accepts his offer. In trailer can see an experimental lab facility. Wade is laying on the bed. This mysterious man promises Wade that he can give him super powers. 

We see a doctor who is treating Wade. Then in the trailer we see an explosion. After that, trailer gets a lot cooler. Wade is now Deadpool and we can see his new costume which is in red color. It would not be wrong to say that his costume looks a bit like Spider-Man. But it’s still unique in a way. Wade wears swords on his back. In the scene we can see Wade sitting on the bridge. He is in a good mood. He is humming and drawing a cartoon sketch. I got a smile while watching this scene. So Wade jumps from the bridge into the car of robbers I guess. 

He starts fighting. The bad guys are firing at him and he is also firing back. Another thing we can see from the trailer is that Wade lives with a blind lady. And after the experiment Wade face got so messy. It’s hard to look at him. So by living with the blind lady he feels comfortable in the house. The trailer ends with the fighting scene and cool song.

The Story and Review of Deadpool

Now let’s move on toward the story of the movie. I will discuss it in detail. We will also get to know some other super characters in the movie. Wade is an ex special forces guy. He goes to a bar and meet a pretty woman. Her name is Vanessa. So they go home together, and have a one-night stand. Their one-night stand changes in relationship. They fall in love with each other. But later Wade is diagnosed with cancer. He gets very depressed. He wants to live with the love of his life. So he goes to the bar and starts drinking. 

A mysterious man from the secret organization comes to him. He claims that he knows Wade condition and can help him. He says that he can cure him and give him abilities which will cure his cancer. Wade hesitates first. But thinking about his girlfriend, he agrees to the man’s proposal. So Wade is taken to an unknown location. There he found himself in a laboratory. He sees around and freaks out. Here in the laboratory he meets Ajax and Angel Dust. Wade doesn't like them much. So Ajax injects him with a serum. Wade gets tortured daily for serum to work. We see lots of torture scenes in the movie. I advise you not to watch this movie with your kids. 

Many of the scenes are very violent. And also because language is not suitable for kids. So it’s made mostly for adults. So in the end Wade gets his powers, but he also gets disfigured permanently. He tries to escape from the lab and succeed. He tries to contact his girlfriend, but due to his disfigured face, he hesitates. So he meets his best friend weasel. They decided to take down the people who did this to him. In the process Wade gets interrupted by two X-men Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead. They convince Wade to join X-men, but he declines the offer. Ajax and Angel Dust abduct Vanessa and tell Deadpool to meet them at a decommissioned helicarrier in a scrapyard. So Wade battles with the villain along with his friends Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead. Wade rescues Vanessa. And we get happy ending.

Final Thoughts

I don’t think that I have seen anything like this one before. I liked this film. Action is awesome in the movie. I would recommend it to adults.

3.The Angry Birds Movie


We all are familiar with the game angry birds. We have played angry birds on our cell phones and also on our computers. The game got so popular, especially among the kids. We can see different angry bird’s toys in the shops. Angry birds is a game in which, a bird is launched in the air using a catapult. The bird flies through the air and lands on the different objects. Objects may contain pigs inside them. In the game we have given a certain number of birds and we have to complete a task of destroying pigs. 

If we are able to destroy all pigs using a certain number of birds in a single attempt, we can move on to the next level. I played this game for a long time. I can say that it’s quite addictive. Now there are so many versions of angry birds available. You can play the game in different environments. I like the space version. I recommend that if you haven’t played this game yet, try it. Now let’s move on towards the movie.

Information about The Angry Birds Movie


It’s an animated movie and is directed by Clay Kaytis and Fergal Reilly and written by Jon Vitti. Let’s talk about the cast of the movie. It includes Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad, Danny McBride, Maya Rudolph, Kate McKinnon, Sean Penn, Tony Hale, Keegan-Michael Key, Bill Hader and Peter Dinklage. It was released in the United States on May 20, 2016. Now let’s talk about the trailer of the movie. The first trailer was released in September 2015.
 
Trailer


In the beginning of the trailer we see an island. In the next scene we see an angry bird of red color. He is sitting beneath the tree and eating a sandwich. Some female birds are sitting in the park and they are passing flirty signals to Red. Red thinks that female birds are flirting with him so he also responds to their signals. But few seconds later we see another bird sitting on the tree above Red. The signals were for that bird. That bird jumps from tree to the face of Red and moves towards female birds. This scene is hilarious. I laughed so hard. 

So in the next scene we see Red sleeping in his home. Suddenly a flower pot falls on his head. He goes out to check. He finds a kid bird playing soccer. So he kicks the kid bird instead of a ball, another, hilarious scene in the trailer. So Red finds himself in anger management class along with other mates. In trailer we can see a ship invading the island. From ship appears a green pig. Pig tries to make friendship with birds. And in the end of the trailer we see angry Red again taking on cardboard of bird.
 
The Story and Review of The Angry Birds Movie


Let me tell you a brief story of the movie now. Well the story starts with the Red. Red is seen getting late for a job. When he reaches the house of the customer, he accidentally breaks the egg. So he is sent to anger management classes. He makes friends in the class Chuck and Bomb. After a while, a ship arrives at the bay of bird’s island. From the ship comes a green pig. He became friends with the birds. But Red gets suspicious. So he with his friends goes to the ship and accidentally found a room full of pigs. Red tries to convince the whole island that pigs are deceiving them. But the birds start partying with the new found pigs. 

Red, Chuck and Bomb decide to go to the mighty eagle nest. When they reach the mighty eagle nest, they see an old eagle with a big belly. They get shocked. Eagle refuses to help them. When they return to the village, they see pigs stealing their eggs. So everybody was sad. Their eggs were gone. Red suggests that birds should attack piggy’s island. So birds invade piggy’s island. Birds use catapults to attack the piggy island. So fight starts. Meanwhile, mighty eagle also comes to the aid of birds. I can’t describe the whole action scene in the end. Fighting between pigs and birds was unbelievable. Even airplanes were used in the attacks. You have to see it yourself. In the end of the movie, everybody appreciates Red and they live happily ever after.
 
Final Thoughts

First time I saw this movie; I couldn’t control my laughter. I laughed so hard. In my opinion, this was the funniest movie of 2016. If this movie can’t make you laugh, then I don’t know what will.

Po is looking at the panda and wondering, who is that guy. So the new panda tells his name Lee. And he says that he is looking for his son. He tells Po that he lost his son many years ago. Po tells that he also lost his family many years ago. So both of them exchange some sentences and then walk away from each other. The villagers take a big sigh like they know the relationship between the two but both pandas didn’t realize it.

Soon both pandas get familiar with each other. Meanwhile, the valley gets attacked by Jade statues of old master controlled by Kai. Po goes with his father to learn the art of chi. Father first says that he will teach him chi but relax first. But in the end Po finds out that father doesn’t know the art of chi. The Kai attacks the temple and destroy it. Also, steals the chi of Shifu and others. 

Tigress escapes and tells the Po everything. The village panics, but Po decides to train them. When the Kai attacks the panda village, they manage to hold on the Kai army. Po uses Wuxi finger hold on Kai to send him back to the Spirit Realm but fails as it only works on mortals. So both the Kai and Po go to Spirit Realm and fights.
