:iconxenomorphplz:WELCOME TO TRISTANTHEJAWSFAN'S MOVIE NEWS!!!! :iconjawsplz:


In Theaters:

-Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
Captain-America-The-Winter-Soldier-Shield-Wall by Tristanthejawsfan

    Okay, let's talk some Avengers. Been a while since I did an in Theaters review, but trust me... there's alot more on the way. Now, I've seen all the cinematic Marvel Studios films from Iron Man (2008) all the way to this one. I'm a fan who appreciates the series as the fastest growing movie franchise today. With 9 films within the span 6 years. I recognize that some installments are better than others, but people have to understand, I'm going to be examining these films as films and not compare them to the comicbook counterparts. (But that doesn't mean I can't recognize bad films. :shh: The X-Men film reviews will get there. ;)) But I don't have the time to go back and review the other installments right now. I will do that when we start getting closer to Avengers: Age of Ultron. ;) But anyway, I was excited to see this one, and at the time before seeing this one, I thought Iron Man and Avengers were the best of the series... This movie topped both of them for me. How? Well I'll get there, but first, the plot:

    After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy—the Winter Soldier.
    Now, let's get into this film. First of all, I'd like to applaud the two Directors the Russo brothers. For a pair of TV Directors, I am DAMN impressed with what they were able to do with 170 million dollars. And knowing that they are signed for Captain America 3, I gotta say, looking forward to it more than Batman vs Superman. :D
    Firstly, the action. My god! This one has the most kinetic, most exiting, best choreographed action scenes of any of the Marvel films yet. And that is why Marvel got these two directors. Usually if a film has more than one director, it becomes a mess. Not the case here. Every fight from the opening ship fight, to Cap's brawl with the Winter Soldier in the streets is amazing. He kicks ASS throwing his shield here.
    Now that I've mentioned the film's action, what about the plot? Actually, it's also really damn good! The plot twists are incredibly engaging, and some of the surprise attacks in the film actually make me jump when they start. It has thought provoking questions that people living in America today can really relate to, and I think that works beautifully to the film's benefit that it is about America. And for once, it feels like we are seeing a real threat that works in the plot. (As opposed to Dark Elves who want the Universe dark because... they just do. :XD:) Now before we end, I will say that without spoiling who it is (in case you didn't know) the villain in this film is great!
STRONG Recommend! Best of the series and up there with The Dark Knight, X-Men First Class, and Spiderman 2. 9.25/10


What I'm Watching:

Everything I'm watching is for the series! :XD:





Spiderman Film Reviews:

-Spiderman 2 (2004)

Main Image-36882 by Tristanthejawsfan
    It's been a while since I saw Spiderman 2. Like, 3 years. My memory told me that it was the best of them. And it is! 
It has the right blend of drama, action, and humor. But before I get to all that, I think a plot description is in order:
    Two years have passed since the mild-mannered Peter Parker walked away from his longtime love Mary Jane Watson and decided to take the road to responsibility as Spider-Man. Peter must face new challenges as he struggles with "the gift and the curse" of his powers while balancing his dual identities as the elusive superhero Spider-Man and life as a college student. Peter's life-long yearning for M.J. becomes even stronger as he fights the impulse to abandon his secret life and declare his love. In the meantime, M.J. has moved on with her life. She has embarked on an acting career and has a new man in her life. Peter's relationship with his best friend Harry Osborn has been overshadowed by Harry's growing vendetta against Spider-Man, whom he holds responsible for his father's death. The relationships Peter holds most dear are now in danger of unraveling as he clashes with the powerful, multi-tentacled villain Doctor Octopus aka "Doc Ock". Peter must now learn to accept his fate and harness all his superhero talents in order to stop this diabolical madman in his octagonal tracks.
    First of all, this is a film that I watched countless times as an 8 year old. Why? Dock Ock.
I freaking love the look of those arms, and as a kid, I wanted those arms! :XD: Although, looking at it now, he's not a great villain. Here's the problem for me, Raimi spends more time on the hero than the villains. Pretty much the opposite of what Burton did with the Batman films. However, I'm okay with it here. (That'll change when we get to 3. ;))
    Tobey Maguire's back as Peter Parker, playing the character in the middle of really a sort of mid-life crisis. He starts to lose his powers throughout the film because of his own self doubt. Which again, is kinda the opposite of what I did with XenoGirl #4. Unfortunately, this is one of the few rare cases where there's a good movie and I don't really have much to say that hundreds of others haven't. This one's an easy recommend. I give it an 8.75/10
The next film however, I will have a thing or two to say about. ;)





X-Men Movie Reviews:

-X2: X-Men United (2003)

340606 by Tristanthejawsfan
    Alright, as much as I loved the first X-Men film, and as much as I love this one, First Class will remain the best of the series. But we'll get there. :eager: Let's just get the plot out of the way:
    When a shocking attack by an unknown assailant possessing extraordinary abilities points to the work of a mutant, the political and public outcry for a Mutant Registration Act is renewed. Leading the anti-mutant movement is William Stryker (Brian Cox), a wealthy former Army commander and scientist who is rumored to have experimented on mutants. Stryker's mutant "work" is somehow tied to Wolverine's mysterious and forgotten past. As Wolverine searches for clues to his origin, Stryker puts into motion his anti-mutant program beginning with a full-scale military offensive on Xavier's (Patrick Stewart) mansion and School for the Gifted. Magneto, newly escaped from the plastic prison he was incarcerated in, proposes a partnership with the X-Men to combat their common and formidable enemy, Stryker.
    Now with this one, they make use of my favorite X-Men from the comics. NightCrawler. He gets a great intro with him busting into the White House to assassinate the president. Although he's a good guy and is being forced to do it. The other X-Men are all pretty good. Wolverine, Mystique, and Magneto steal the show and are great in there roles. Patrick Stewart is still good in the role of Professor X. But he kinda takes a back seat in the film. So do Cyclops and Storm who kinda get the shaft. But Jean Grey does do some exciting things. Every character kinda gets their moment. But one thing I can say, Stryker makes for a great villain, and a worthy threat for friend and foe to team up against. :) The scene where there are troops infiltrating the Xavier Institute is very eerie and gets tense as it builds up. The film was almost rated R for some of the brutal scenes of Wolverine slashing up the troops and taking them down. Like the first film, it feels like a chess game the way things build up towards the climax. (Funny cause the starting move of a chess game is called the gambit. :XD:) The moral themes of the first film are still apparent in this film as they should be. All in all, this one's an improvement and was that best of the series.
High recommend, and an 8.5/10



Will post Godzilla reviews tomorrow. ^^; So many films, and so little energy.

Some of you may have noticed the folders in my Gallery titled "XenoGirl Volume 1" and "XenoGirl Volume 2".
If not, then you might've noticed the title of this Chibi Deviation:
Natasha Xander/XenoGirl (Volume 2) Chibi by Tristanthejawsfan
You guys may be wondering what the difference is between the two Volumes and why I split the series up like this. Well let me explain. 

The first Volume, XenoGirl 1-4, is mostly about Natasha Xander and her mental dilemma of being unsure of who she really is inside. XenoGirl or Natasha? It also establishes new characters/villains each installment to add to the roster for the 2nd Volume. Such as:
-The Queen
-The Predator
-Ash
-and Catherine Yutani
Volume 1: XenoGirl #1: The Chitinous Teen by Tristanthejawsfan XenoGirl #2: The Queen by Tristanthejawsfan XenoGirl #3 by Tristanthejawsfan XenoGirl #4 by Tristanthejawsfan

It ends in #4 with Natasha embracing her role as XenoGirl, but she will still live her human life as often as she can.

Volume 2 on the other hand, is rather different. It will be stuffed with more than just 4 more XenoGirl installments. There is a Fly-Girl vs XenoGirl story to bridge the two Volumes that features :iconsymbioticfedorageek:'s awesome OC Rebecca Harris AKA Fly-Girl:
 Rebecca Harris AKA the Fly-Girl by SymbioticFedoraGeek 
Story: XenoGirl vs FlyGirl by Tristanthejawsfan
Because if you guys haven't realized yet, XenoGirl shares the same universe as Fly-Girl and :iconsymbioticfedorageek:'s series "Venom: Evolution". But anyway, other differences with Volume 2 are the following:
-it's gonna be darker (particularly when we get to the final installment)
-it's gonna get bigger (Long Live the Queen :shh:)
-it'll be about other characters than just XenoGirl
There will also be a spin-off about her evil, inhuman, highness, The Queen:
Quinn Weyland/The Queen Profile(Bio in Descrip.) by Tristanthejawsfan

I recently posted the 5th installment of the XenoGirl series, and the first of the 2nd Volume:
XenoGirl #5 by Tristanthejawsfan
To be honest, I kinda rushed the ending and I keep noticing things that I should've added, so I will be adding alot to it within the next week. Trust me, it'll be better. ;)
But anyway, those are the differences. Will there be more XenoGirl after #8? That's for another day to discuss in the future. ;)
PS: I will be doing 8, that's right, 8 film reviews this weekend. Which films? I think it's a little obvious if you know what's in theaters and what I've been reviewing lately on my review Journal:
