MOVIE REVIEW: SABOTAGE

If you are expecting director David Ayer’s latest drug cartel-related action movie to soar like his previous efforts, you will be left cold and disappointed. Sabotage follows closely the exact template of story and style that makes End of Watch and Training Day a critical acclaimed, small hit but the Arnold Schwarzenegger starrer is clearly the odd one in the list here. Bogged down by extreme absurdity, plodding storyline and on-the-treadmill action, Sabotage is not as interesting or as engaging as it should be. After all, it was Skip Woods (A Good Day to Die Hard) who pen this.

WHAT HAPPEN AFTER CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER?

When the production for the Captain America sequel was announced during the San Diego Comic Con back in 2012, those who are familiar with the Marvel property should be able to recognize the significant of its subtitle, The Winter Soldier. The comic fans knew what is coming but little do they know that it eventually becomes something as big as this.


I have watched the latest Marvel’s offering and I can summarize from my review that this film is indeed, a game-changer and is one of the best Marvel movies so far. But going into the cinema blind should be avoided. For a starter, you need to watch Captain America: The First Avenger. But in case you have already did so and is still left with some unclear thoughts, fret not as I am going to examine and to conclude my findings on how Captain America: The Winter Soldier will affect the franchise in the future. In this post, I will be discussing on:
1. Infinite gems
2. Mid Post Credit Scene
3. The Whereabouts of SHIELD Agents
4. Post Credit Scene
5. How Marvel's Agents of SHIELD relates to the future of MCU

MOVIE REVIEW: CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

Hollywood’s tendency to exploit political allegory into their major plot of any given film (read Robocop) can be as risky and ballsy as this latest attempt from Marvel Studio to inject a game-changing development into the whole Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). In this sequel of Captain America’s solo journey film, it is vivid that Marvel Studio is willing to oppose the need for being too comfortable with the conventional MCU comic storyline. Much like last year’s Iron Man 3, the standard bar has indeed raised to a different level and game set. But of course, in between those high almighty preaches and lines about political twist, conspiracy theory and espionage affair; Captain America: The Winter Soldier remains parallel with the spirit of patriotism and typical alignment of any given MCU movie.

MOVIE REVIEW: FOR ALL THE MOVIES IN FEBRUARY

Alright, Green Tea Movie!! went into sleep mode recently due to the hectic workload on my studies and on my works. First of all I am sorry if there are absolutely lack of updates on this blog. But here I am with a simple blog post that will deal on the movies I have watched on the month of February and are not featured as a review after all. Here are the full list of movies I have watched last month:

I, FRANKENSTEIN
Skipped to be watched on the first day of February. My short review at this FB link.
1.5/5

AH BENG: MISSION IMPOSSIBLE
I guess the creative team behind My FM's annual lunar new year movie is getting drier and lousy again. Another cash cow with low substances.
2/5

HELLO BABIES
Mildly amusing but otherwise it is just yet another typical Chinese New Year movie with ridiculous plot and setting.
2.5/5


ROBOCOP
A remake/re-imagine that has potential to be bigger. My short review at this FB link.
3.5/5

THE JOURNEY
The best local production in years is blessed with more down-to-earth story about various issues on cultural differences and love.
4/5

GOLDEN CHICKENSSS
It may not boost the glory from the former installments but this third movie about the life of a prostitute is still fun-to-watch and is glittered by mild sexual innuendos.
3.5/5


THE LEGO MOVIE
"Everything is Awesome". Indeed. My short review at this FB link.
4.5/5

THAT AWKWARD MOMENTS
As if the title does not make itself clear enough, what can be? My review at this FB link.
2.5/5

ENDLESS LOVE
A bad Valentine's movie. My review at this FB link.
2/5

BEIJING LOVE STORY
An anthology of love story that all happen in Beijing at the same time frame for some specific reasons but it leaves an after taste of undesirable effects.
2/5


POMPEII
Volcano versus Jon Snow. You know who will wins. My review at this FB link.
2.5/5


THE MONUMENTS MEN
How big stars can screw a movie? Here's how. My review at this FB link.
2/5


PHILOMENA
Could be in the rank of fifth in the Oscar race. Judi Dench and Steve Coogan are amazing. My review at this FB link.
4.5/5

Have not watch
From Macau to Vegas
Huat Ah! Huat Ah! Huat!
Vampire Academy
The Book Thief
Snowpiercer

Not interested
Bullets over Petaling Street

FULL LIST FOR SUPER BOWL XLVIII TRAILERS AND SPOTS

Looks like for many of us on the East part of the world, we are still celebrating the Lunar New Year while those in the Stateside will be tuning to their tubes for the showdown between Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos in this year's Super Bowl XLVIII. Forget about Seattle steamrolled Denver on the final. As a tradition, advertisers including movie studios will be using slots available to treat and introduce the audiences with plenty of product commercials. The slots, cost about $4 million for every 30-second of commercial, will be available in front of approximately 120 million American viewers. Enough of the brief introduction, let us look at the movie trailers and spots which are featured in this year's Super Bowl right after the jump. Note: Robocop is not included as we have watched it in Malaysia, releasing over the weekend.
