Dave is driven by the passion of revenge due to the fact he was move out from one place to another because penguins.

Review

An extreme happy go lucky movie, Penguins of Madagascar features the ever ready Skipper(Tom McGrath), Kowalski(Chris Miller), Rico(Conrad Vernon) and Private(Christopher Knights) and this time they will fight off an extremely pissed squit. Their fight against the evil Dave were supported by The North Wind; an undercover crime fighting organization which is led by Classified(Benedict Cumberbatch), Short Fuse(Ken Jeong), Eva(Annet Mahendru), and Corporal(Peter Stormare).
As the penguins comes under the North Wind protection – according to Classified, Skipper decide that they can do it way better and start going after Dave themself. However their on the go attitude were not really accepted by The North Wind.

It’s an extremely fun movie for the kids and adults with jokes hitting at the right time. We totally enjoyed ourselves to watch a full Penguin movie instead of the other animals.
However the end of the movie was a little let down – the final battle between Dave and the Penguins. It somehow felt like a crossover from Minion 2. All and all, the Penguins was awesome as how they were in the previous Madagascar movie. 

Plot: 7/10
Review:7/10
Imax/3D: Not much of 3D going on, so we would recommend you watch it on 2D.

Fast & Furious to not end at 7

The tragic death of Paul Walker has impacted alot on the Fast & Furious franchise but could the movie go on without him? The answer is yes, Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley has revealed that, far from 7 marking the final chapter, she believes that they still milk the franchise for another 3 more movie with Justin Lee most probably directing the next one.

In an interview, when she was asked whether the franchise could sustain without Walker? “I believe it can,” says Langley. “We think there are at least three more. Paul is, and always will be, an integral part of the story, but there are many other great characters, and it’s also an opportunity to introduce new characters. I think it’s still a growing franchise. We’ll see what happens with Furious 7, obviously, but our box office has grown over the past three or four films and internationally, in particular. So we think that there’s more to mine there.”

Fifty Shades of Grey Official Trailer #2

AVENGERS 2: AGE OF ULTRON – Official Extended Trailer #2

Another trailer was release online today and shows more of our mystery Korean Lady who was with Thor and in a away confirms our assumption and also much earlier appearance of Ultron before what we presume the soft battle between the Avengers and Ultron. But however the additional 15-20 sec scene didn’t have any additional leak. Enjoy it!

Fantastic Four’s Doctor Doom is….

Toby Kebbell  is Doom. The character of the arch enemy of Fantastic 4 are not only has been change, but his profile aswell. At an event to promote Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes on Blu-ray, Collider got the actor behind the mask – or whatever he ends up wearing – talking about the character.toby-kebbell-doctor-doom

I’m excited to see it too,” says Kebbell. The only thing I can tease you about is what I worked on most was the voice because nobody – even in the cartoons, when I was watching them I was like, ‘so where’s he from?’ There’s a mild change. He’s Victor Domashev, not Victor Von Doom in our story. And I’m sure I’ll be sent to jail for telling you that. The Doom in ours: I’m a programmer. A very anti-social programmer. And on blogging sites I’m ‘Doom’.”
A Doom who is not a original Doom. How is that even possible. Marvel’s Fantastic 4 has been criticized heavily ever since the new character line up been announced. Would this be another doomed movie or a masterpiece? We hope Josh Trank knows what his doing.

Victor Wong Wai Tsung

I would like to watch THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES because
It will surely be an epic and awesome night,
As Together we trek towards one last fight,
First is the destruction of Smaug in flight,
Hurting when seeing Thorin Oakenshield succumb to Dragon Sickness’s blight,
Though initially divided by one’s own claim and birthright,
Against a common foe in the end do they all unite,
Which is where we are captivated with delight,
As they ultimately prevail against Evil’s might,
Even though sacrifices, loss and sorrow we share of their plight,
It is nevertheless an experience guaranteed to be out of sight!!!

 

1st Prize

If epic action movies ever had to take an exam, The Battle of the Five Armies would ace it and to watch the last the Tolkien series done by the talented, Peter Jackson.

2nd Prize

Lo Xin Qi
I would like to watch THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES because as Thorin requested: “will you follow me, one last time?” my answer is, “yes”. Saying goodbye to the last movie was like agonising torture but the real emotions will hot me in days to come and who let the dragons out *roar roar roar roar*, I want to know what happens when they release the dragons!
