Wanna visit Gotham?

For the record, my favorite superhero is Batman. So I was so excited to see this advertisement. Even though it is for the promotion of the upcoming film (which I am not sure if I will be seeing it, but then who knows!) it is still so amazing. Come on, why not have a city with that name heh? It would be so cool. Imagine having a set built like Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Castle, where you can go and see the city in its all glory. I am not sure if they already have one somewhere. But until then, enjoy the promotion 🙂

Pingu

During the movie Big Hero 6, they showed the trailer of ‘Penguins of Madagascar‘.  My nieces and nephew, especially my first niece absolutely loves Penguins. Once when I showed her my photos of penguins from my trip to Monterey Bay Aquarium she was so delighted by it that she wanted me to take her there or to Antarctica (because I told her that a lot of penguins lived there) and I have promised her that I will, as soon as she is ready to board a plane (as of now, she is afraid of planes and she wants to travel everywhere by train). They are also a fan of the Pingu (she calls all penguins as pingu infact) because of the older TV show that used to come. And now because of Nickelodeon, they are aware of ‘The Penguins of Madagascar‘ too. I hope my brother takes them to this movie when it is released in my place. They are gonna love it, I know. And the effect of the recent Monty – The Penguin ad and this upcoming movie, I bought them (one for my nieces and one for my nephew) a Penguin bag for the Children’s day (Nov 14). My siblings called up to inform that the kids loved it and my nephew even promised me that he will name the pingu Monty 😉 even though he wondered why he should call the penguin anything other than penguin (a valid question of course!) and my first niece was generous enough to say that she would give it to her younger sister if she was interested to have the pingu bag for herself and that she would be happy to settle for the pink one. That was so sweet of her, because I was so worried that they are gonna start a fight for it. I am not sure if I will be joining my friends for that movie, which they are already planning but you never know. One last piece of information. Do you know that Benedict Cumberbatch is giving the voice for ‘Agent Classified’, the wolf, in this movie and that he can’t pronounce the word penguins correctly ? At least that is what this episode of Graham Norton shows tells us.

Trailer Rant

I am so tired of having to watch this trailer of Transformers 4 Age of Extinction, again and again. Why!!! Why do they force me like this. I had to see it when I was in the theater watching some other movie and YouTube shows me this whenever I try to load some video. I Don’t Like Transformers series 😥
The first time someone took me to the first movie in that series, as a surprise mind you, I had such a severe headache and I really really wished I was a violent person. I just couldn’t bear it. And I did not watch any other sequels of that. And last week one of my friend suggested that we go to this because her son wanted to see it, I almost shrieked and told her that I just can’t do that even if she questions my friendship and I have had been to some very very dumb and stupid movies with her. One of my friend was saying that he was seriously considering to un-friend all his friends from his Facebook account who praised this movie and asked him if he was going to watch it. And the sad part is I like Mark Wahlberg and felt really very bad that he is in this movie.

The other movie which keeps playing in the trailers is ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘. How many times the Avengers and all super heroes are going to get together to save the Earth, oops sorry this time it is the Galaxy. Oh God!!! Don’t they get tired of saving the Earth, the Universe, the Galaxy, the Milky Way all those things. I liked it when it was just Superman, Spiderman (to some extent), Batman but now there are quite a bunch of people half of whom I don’t know and I don’t want to also. The more the crowd the lesser each one’s importance isn’t. I am not able to concentrate on one super hero/heroine now. Too much heroism going on, I can barely understand. I am so not eager to watch this too. I really hope they do end up saving the Galaxy and stop there and not continue with something else beyond it. I know lot of people like it and its cool and fine but again too much for me.

Having said all of this, even though I am particularly not really happy to see a sequel to it, I am kind of expecting ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes‘. Yeah sort of weird isn’t. And the only one reason I can say is that I like animals and one particular Caesar in this , so much that I am ready to watch this when it comes in theaters. I loved the first one (not the old one, but the Rise of the Planet of the Apes) and Caesar’s acting in that. I had tears in some scenes. Too good. OK, time to sign off the rant and the day. Good night.
