TV SHOW: Marvel’s The Defenders Teaser

Last Tuesday we were lucky enough to come by a little short teaser disguised as an elevator camera footage showing us the four heroes from Hell’s Kitchen (Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Danny Rand). Even though the video was rather short for my taste, I can’t complain over my excitement after watching this four characters finally in the same space.

Jessica, Luke, Matt (who is not very good at hiding his identity to be honest) and Danny enter the elevator and wait while Jessica spots the camera and breaks it.

But there’s more to it. On the right corner we can see a date of release and on the upper left corner the numbers 23.253.120.81. that if you write them on the browser it directs you to the New York Bulletin, Daredevil’s Karen Page (and Ben Urich on the first season) place of work.

But what interests more about this page are the covers archive were we can see some news that apparently viewers missed.

The Character Book Tag

Photo May 27, 4 57 38 PM.png

Chloe from (Over) Analysing Literature left this tag open and I thought it looked like fun so I’m gonna do it and hope I don’t end up rambling about the characters because I feel like a proud mom when I talk about them. Alright let’s do it!

In fair warning I haven’t been reading lately so my answers might have no sense or talk about old books I read.

1. Who is the most tough and awesome character?

Hmm… this is hard. I’m between Harry Potter and Katniss Everdeen. Funny thing is these two protagonist are the ones which I had most trouble liking at first place but have to admit they’re awesome and tough.

Harry lost his family when he was a baby and had to go through all those years of abuse by the Dursleys. Then he got to hear how great his parents were and how they had been murdered by a dark wizard who seemed to be after him. When he founds Sirius, his godfather, he feels like he might have a  chance of having a family and then Sirius dies.

Harry went through a lot, I mean, he came back from the dead! And he did all this being just a kid. He’s pretty much awesome because he’s a great wizard even though he seemed to have no idea what he’s doing most of the time, he goes with whatever idea comes first and it always works. I don’t think I need more excuse,  he defeated Lord Voldemort when he was just a baby!

Katniss was used as a political symbol being just 17 years old, she started a revolution that change millions of lives… AND SHE WAS JUST 17! At 17 I was failing almost every subject of high school. Plus she did all that for her sister and in the end her sister dies…

2. Which character do you most dislike?

This is also hard… I have a feeling every question is going to be hard for me. I didn’t finish this series but Sebastian from The Mortal Instruments was a piece of sh*t.

3. If you could date a fictional character,whom would it be?

RICHARD GANSEY III… he, he. Or Blue Sargent, she’s the best. When I was young I had a major crush on Ponyboy from The Outsiders… or Mr. Knightley from Emma… I could go on.

4. If you could change a character in any way what would it be?

I don’t know, I guess that while reading I have a lot of comments towards the characters and their personalities but after I finished the books I just see the bigger picture rather than that aspect of their personality.

5.What character made all the wrong choices which didn’t add anything to the story?

Noah from I’ll Give You the Sun… I do get he was really young and had a lot on his shoulder so I don’t really blame him but he did make some bad decisions that could have been avoided.

I could also mention Macbeth here but his wrong choices added a lot to the story.

6. Which Character do you love to hate?

I guess I could go with Alex from A Clockwork Orange. Honorable mentions: Lord Voldemort from Harry Potter, Joseph Kavinsky from The Dream Thieves, Don John from Much Ado About Nothing, Nick Bottom from A Midsummer Night’s Dream (I don’t know I just can’t get to like that character)…

7. Favorite sidekick character with the most heart.

Noah from The Raven Boys 🙂

I want to stop mentioning Harry Potter and that’s why I’m not saying Ron or Hermione.

8. What is your favorite fictional romantic relationship?

*Sweats because she wants to keep mentioning HP characters* Gansey and Blue from The Raven Boys, they’re so different yet you get the feeling they go well together. They know they’re not going to find what they’re looking for in each other but it doesn’t mean they can’t find it hand in hand.

Also: Scarlet and Wolf from The Lunar Chronicles, they’re so cute!!! Ronan and Adam from The Raven Cycle too.Chloe mentioned Gilbert and Anne from Anne of Green Gables and I absolutely agree. Beatrice and Benedick and yeah alright I’m sorry I have to… I love Ron and Hermione and Ginny and Harry.

9. Who do you think is the strongest character?

They’re a lot of characters that would enter in this area. I mean all the protagonists are usually really strong characters. I could mention Oliver Twist because he was just a kid and he went trough a lot but I read the book a long time ago (like 8 years ago) and I don’t remember that much of it.

10. Best protagonist?

I feel like Blue Sargent is the proper answer here. Usually it takes me a while to like the protagonist but I loved her from the first chapter (My precious feminist baby!). Also Lou Clark from Me Before You was a character I undoubtedly liked. Charlie from The Perks of Being a Wallflower… It’s really difficult choosing one.

11. Whom do you tag?

Everyone! If you want to do it, do it. If you don’t, don’t. Your choice!

 

Top 10 Instrumental Movie Scores

I don’t know if somebody else does this (probably yes) but I usually have a lot of instrumental music in my phone. I have classic and scores from movies. They’re great when you’re walking the dog, a simple task transforms itself into defeating pirates, aliens or men itself. While you sweep the floor one instrumental song of two minutes can make you shed tears.

I love movie scores, they have so much power in motion pictures. I always imagine how movies would work without it, I probably wouldn’t cry so much while watching them for sure. I thought I could do a list of my favorite movie scores (up to now.) If you know them tell me what you think or if you have another one let me know.

  • Peter Pan (2003) by James Newton Howard

peter pan ost

Probably the first soundtrack I ever downloaded. This movie had such an effect on me. Everything about it is beautiful. “Fairy Dance” was always my favorite soundtrack, sadly spotify didn’t let me hear it and when I bought an iPhone it was the same with Apple Music so I ended up buying the song on iTunes (something I never do ha)  and even today I have “Fairy Dance” in my music.

  • Amélie (2001) by Yann Tiersen

Amelie ost

It took me two times of watching this movie to love it but only one to love the soundtrack. I also have some of the songs in my music repertoire.

  • Pirates of the Caribbean by Hans Zimmer

pirates of the caribbean ost.JPG

I’m putting the World’s End CD cover but every movie soundtrack from this franchise is gold. Hans Zimmer is so talented. I have “One Day” from the third movie saved. The fourth movie has some really badass soundtrack too, “Mermaids” is so good!

  • Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (2001) by John Williams

harry potter I ost

Umm… I cry every time I hear a song that comes from this album so I don’t have any songs in my phone cause I’m sure I would cry while walking the dog and while going to classes. Actually if the movie had no sound I would still cry because everything about the first movies of Harry Potter makes me cry.

Hearing this soundtrack feels like being introduced into the Wizarding world for the first time all over again. Everything is magical and you can really connect with Harry’s feelings, so naive and curious above all this world the movie is introducing you and him.

(Don’t even get me started with Hedwig’s theme)

  • Finding Neverland (2004) by Jan A. P. Kaczmarek

Finding_Neverland_(soundtrack)

This movie is so lovely! The soundtrack sounds so sweet and innocent, playful at times and heartbroken at others. I think I have three songs from it saved in my phone.

  • Man of Steel (2013) by Hans Zimmer

man of steel ost

When people recommended me this movie I was like “Nah… I’m not into Superman at all” Well I saw the movie last week and I was so wrong (AGAIN) Man of Steel is such a good action movie, it makes me look at Zack Snyder (director)  and the DCCU (DC cinematic universe) with whole new eyes. I mean, technically “Batman v Superman” did but Man of Steel strengthens my thoughts about it.

The soundtrack was obviously perfect and possibly one of my favorite superhero movie ones. Damn Hans… back at it again with the good score.

  • Romeo and Juliet (2013) by Abel Korzeniowski

romeo and juliet ost

I think the reason I watched the movie was because of the score. I found it in some 8tracks playlist and saved it in my music and a little later decided I should probably watch the movie. The movie is okay, the soundtrack is great.

  • Star Wars: The Force Awakens by John Williams

tfa ost

I could also mention the other movies but this was the first Star Wars movie I watched on the big screen and the soundtrack stuck with me all december 2015. Well… maybe it was because I saw it like four times in theaters but whatever.

It brings me so much nostalgia hearing this score as if I was alive in the 70’s hearing for the first time about Luke Skywalker and the force.

Simply perfect.

  • Cinderella (2015) by Patrick Doyle

cinderella ost

Cinderella had a big message in the movie, “Have courage and be kind” I think every time I hear the songs of this album this message rumbles inside me. You can hear instrumental songs and not imagine the movie like “Romeo and Juliet” I mentioned before but with Cinderella’s score every time you hear a song is like you hear the movie’s story all over again and is so sweet.

  • Batman v Superman by Hans Zimmer

bvs ost.jpg

I just can’t get enough of Zimmer. Like I said in (Sort of) REVIEW: Batman v Superman The most fantastic thing about this film (besides Wonder Woman) is the soundtrack. With Hans Zimmer’s score this movie was a work of art and it also enters in my favorite superhero movie scores.

Some honorable mentions: The Phantom of the Opera, Thor: The Dark World, Batman Begins (yep, Zimmer again) Pride and Prejudice, Stardust. Also Doctor Who has some awesome scores I have all the companions theme songs saved. (and Doomsday for when I want to cry really, really hard. Murray Gold is talented as hell)

 

 

 

Civil War Trailer! (I’m dead)

Captain America Civil War second trailer is here and I thought it would be fun if I share my fangirl thoughts (not serious thoughts though because if I get serious here I’m going to start crying because everything seems so sad and awful)

OK! Let’s go.

They start naming us some cities the Avengers had destroyed by trying to save everyone. I always think of this, how does the economy in USA manage with all these city destruction?! But then again what do you expect if aliens invade our planet they can’t be like “Oh Cap be careful with that building, don’t touch that street sign…”

But then they show Sokovia…

And my baby Wanda gets sad because she lost her home and her brother #PietroLives2k16.

And It’s nice to see that Steve notices because I know it’s probably nothing and Steve is just a good person but I like Wanda’s and Steve’s friendship in the comics and I don’t know this was nice.

So then blah, blah happens (and by that I mean important stuff). They show Bucky and then we get these dramatic looks every superheroe movie deserves.

It’s funny because I always joke about Civil War being a soap opera about Steve and Tony breaking up because Steve’s ex, Bucky, returns. This helps my case.

Look at this. This is real love

[“Can You Feel The Love Tonight” starts playing]

One of the reasons (of the 1000 reasons) I’m excited about this movie is T’Challa. Black Panther seems like a great addition to the mcu.

Photo Mar 10, 7 35 17 PM

Photo Mar 10, 7 35 23 PM

Here he seems to be going after Bucky while Cap runs after him (or with him?), the dream. huh?

Bucky seems to have the “I don’t give a fuck” attitude in this movie. Brainwash is a bitch. He seems unstable and confused af. My poor son. We also get to see this scene again. You know, the one everyone was so “omfg” and “Bucky has no chill” about it because it looked like he was about to shoot Tony in the face in the middle of the street, to keep the list of wrong impressions Tony is getting from  Bucky going (besides the fact that Bucky possibly killed his parents)

He seems to have another target though and Tony stops him with his cool technological thingy. He’s like “Dude! wtf!”

Photo Mar 10, 7 38 16 PM

This though I don’t know if he is the one who shoots Rhodey.

Photo Mar 10, 7 39 00 PM

WTF! Same, Tony, same

Photo Mar 10, 7 39 32 PM

I tell you something. If Rhodey dies in this one, I’ll riot.

Poor Tony, look at him, he looks broken. How could you Steve?! [Violins start playing]

Photo Mar 10, 7 39 43 PM

More dramatic looks here and there

Nat kicking some ass as usual.

Steve says to Tony that this doens’t have to end in a fight and Tonys’s like…

Photo Mar 10, 8 18 42 PM

“Fuck you, Steve”

Photo Mar 10, 8 18 56 PM

“Yes it fucking does, Steve. We’re getting payed for that”

Then Black Panther finally has his chance to fight Bucky. Yay!

“Excuse me, I’m trying to beat the shit out of someone here”

More Natasha because she’s one of my favorite marvel characters ever and I lover her so much.

Then Marvel breaks wandavision even though it didn’t even started

Photo Mar 10, 8 44 25 PM

Is it just me or this part is super kinky? Just me? Oh well, kinky af!

Photo Mar 10, 8 44 35 PM

“Gimme all”

Then we get to see my son and favorite marvel character. Purple Arrow!

Photo Mar 10, 8 44 45 PM

I’m kidding I love hawkeye so much, he really is my favorite comic character but I don’t know how to feel about Jeremy Renner. I usually love the actors who portay the marvel characters but Renner is quite problematic. I try to like him, I really do. He portays Clint well though at least with what they give him (not to much)  I once read in tumblr that being a fan of  clint barton in the mcu was kind of like being the parent of the kid playing tree #3 in the school play. It’s true I hate what they do to Clint in the mcu but oh well…

This tiny friend!

I love Paul Rudd, I used to have a picture of him on my wall. I love that he got to be in the mcu. It made me love him even more. Poor Ant-Man he got called probably thinking they wanted him in the Avengers and now he’s in the middle of this.

Everyone here about to get it on (not in that kind of way we wish they would)

Photo Mar 10, 8 45 46 PM

And then… Tony gets tired of this shit and decides to go with plan B.

Photo Mar 10, 8 56 16 PM

And we all are like “who’s he calling, omg, so excited!”

Photo Mar 10, 8 56 22 PM

And here we lost our shit

Us: ASDFGHJSJDHSHS

Steve: What the shit? oh sorry, What the heck?

Natasha: Not impressed…

Photo Mar 10, 8 56 28 PM

Us: OMG! IT’S HIM! THIS IS IT! HE’S HERE

Steve: Hey, rude! that’s mine.

Nat: Still not impressed.

Photo Mar 10, 8 56 35 PM

It’s fucking Spidey! He even talks!

Marvel decided to stop being so evil and show him. I lost my shit in this moment I was like “BCFJAWEDBCEHGRVCSEJBFW<KA” I’m so excited to see Tom Holland, I have a lot of faith in him.

If you read this I hope you enjoyed. I was so bored today so I though why not…

As for what team I’m in. I always thought I was neutral. I don’t like to see my parents fighting. But these trailers are really making me go with Tony. He seems really vulnerable. I’ll stay neutral though. But my son Hawkeye is in team Cap… but my baby Nat is with Iron Man… UGH! I hate marvel for doing this and splitting my family.

See ya
