Batman v Superman Was….Okay…

Batman vs. Superman was easily one of the most anticipated movies of 2016. Everyone was talking about this movie, since it was declared in 2013. And it definitely lived up to its hype, especially for those who follow the comics actively. Batman and Superman are by far the two most admired and famous superheroes in the Justice League. They are generally known to have respect for each other, but in this movie they will be fighting against each other. The prospect of two superpowers coming against each other was the main reason behind the hype.

Before Batman Vs. Superman, ” Man of Steel ” was released and it was a huge success. It made millions at the box office. Hence, it was quite obvious that Zack Snyder will be chosen as the director once again to continue his success. Henry Cavill played the role of Superman brilliantly in the “Man of Steel”, and was selected for the role once again. The decision turned out to be great, because he gave one of the best performances of his career in this movie. Ben Affleck was chosen to play the role of Batman. Previously, Christian Bale played Batman brilliantly and won the hearts of millions of people. Eyebrows were raised when Ben was chosen for this movie. Thankfully, he answered back to his critics in style. The Batmobile used in this movie also pleased many fans. Looks wise, it is much better than the previous ones. And also the weapons are more high tech and powerful.


The movie revolves round a very simple plot. After the highly intense battle which happened in the ” Man of Steel” movie, Superman was not really a very popular figure. The general public blamed him for the death of so many innocent citizens and wanted to get rid of him. Batman also considers Superman as a threat and tries to do everything in his power to kill him. Meanwhile another guy named Lex is planning to kill the entire human race. The movie is about the battle among the three powerful guys.

The Batman vs. Superman full movie costed around $250 million to be made. It is quite obvious considering the special effects used, the high tech costumes and so many battle scenes. The entire movie was mainly shot in Chicago and Detroit. However, $250 million looked like a small sum of money, considering the kind of success it had in the box office. So far, it has collected around $871 million.

Finding Dory is FInally Here!

“You must follow your dreams, you must believe in yourself, and everything is possible with determination” I believe this is the theme of finding Dory full movie. Finding Dory might not be the movie Finding Nemo was , but it’ s one of the animated comedy adventure movies that is eager to please just anyone who has a look at it; wider character than finding Nemo, the right amount of humor as well as sentiment. The film is swimming upstream just like Nemo 13 years ago, going to a record of $ 130M+ for the weekend.

 

Finding Nemo was all about cooperation but Finding Dory is about self –reliance which makes the characters a little entertaining for the kids.

Dory a young fish is seen with a very good coping mechanism, always trying to find help whenever she can, try to forge ahead when help isn’t available and in her own terms and coping mechanism she succeeds. The firm is also trying to show the parents love for their kids and the lesson that kids will always remember what their parent teaches them.

The emotional power in finding dory full movie comes from Dory’s memory loss. This is a part that makes the film exceptionally smart when compared to Finding Nemo. Dory is able to deal with her memory loss, know how to deal with ‘people’ despite her forgetfulness, things she learned from her parents. She is able to meet a host of wonderful friends, some cranky but very kind hearted like the Octopus and a near-sighted whale. Dory’s story literally keeps the full movie buoyant and very kid friendly thanks also to the vivid visuals and its quick pace.

Unlike most Disney films, finding Dory has no villain, but the fact that Dory struggles with her loss of memory and her fear is scary enough to leave her as a Hero in the end. She is a wonderful character, does the unexpected and her friend values her in their own way. This is probably one of the greatest lessons on this film that sometimes we take for granted those friends who seem to be too idiosyncratic, but most at times these are the friends who make our life active, fun and adventurous.

 

Finding Dory is another wonderful Pixar’s series, with its protagonist darting the beautifully realized beach, and as an audience you can feel the scene; the grit of the sand and ‘taste’ the salt water. The story may not be original for some people, but the standard kid message is they have to believe in themselves, try new things and be self-reliant.

Suicide Squad: Savior or Death Knell of the DC Extended Universe?

August 5 brings us the newest (and third) entry in the quickly expanding DC Extended Universe (DCEU): Suicide Squad. The first two Zack Snyder-helmed installments, Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, dealt primarily with characters well known in popular culture: Superman, Batman, and Lex Luthor with a little Wonder Woman thrown in for good measure.

This time around, though, the characters are less familiar to the world at large and include, among others, Deadshot (Will Smith), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman), Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney), El Diablo (Jay Hernandez), Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), Enchantress (Cara Delevingne), Katana (Karen Fukuhara), and Slipknot (Adam Beach). Together, they make up a team modelled on The Dirty Dozen: the worst of the worst imprisoned super antiheros who take on impossible and improbable missions for the government via A.R.G.U.S. (Advanced Research Group Uniting Super-Humans), under the direction of Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), in order to reduce their sentences.

Warner Brothers has a lot riding on the success of this movie. The rival Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) consists of thirteen movies already released, all the way from Iron Man (2008) to Captain America: Civil War (2016), while Suicide Squad is only the third movie in the DCEU. In addition, while most of the MCU-related movies have been generally both well reviewed and commercial successes, Suicide Squad’s immediate predecessor Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was weak in both areas. Plus, with the soft opening and lukewarm reviews for the recently released X-Men: Apocalypse, itself the ninth installment in the X-Men suicide squad 5series since 2000, an understandable sense of comic book fatigue could be setting in for critics and movie goers alike. Warner Brothers has an ambitious schedule for rolling out at least an additional eight DCEU movies over the next four years so it’s critical Suicide Squad, the complete movie, is a commercial success to provide forward momentum.

David Ayer was an intriguing choice to be Suicide Squad’s writer-director. While not known for big-budget CGI movies, he did write the gritty Training Day, which earned Denzel Washington an Academy Award for Best Actor, along with writing and directing the stylized Harsh Times, End of Watch, and Fury. (Or to put it another way, no matter what, he’s no Joel Schumacher directing Batman & Robin.) The cast, led by Will Smith and Oscar-winner Jared Leto as the Joker, is especially strong as well. From the footage released online, the movie appears to have a well-developed dark sensibility and perverse streak despite its PG-13 rating. (After all, if we learned anything from slogging along through Paradise Lost, it’s that being bad is more fun than being good.) Finally, with three strong female squad members—Harley Quinn, Enchantress, and Katana—Suicide Squad could give them the chance to do things the MCU hasn’t been able (or willing) to do with its near myopic focus on Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow.

Whether or not Suicide Squad can meet the Herculean task of kick starting the DCEU (again) is the kind of $250M crapshoot only Hollywood is willing to take. However, good or bad, it looks worth seeing just to watch all the moving parts and how well (or not) they fit together. Last line, I’m pumped to watch suicide squad!

My Captain America: Civil War Expectations

This is a rather… different post from us, but we’re just so excited to see this movie, we had to post this here! Keep an eye out for our next post, I think you’re all going to love learning about the icebergs and iceberg preservation!

Captain America: Civil War (also known as “Captain America: Civil War online“) is a follow up of the Avengers: Age of Ultron. It picks up right where it left off as a new team of Avengers continue in their efforts to guard humanity. After yet another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, there is political pressure to install a government body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps; one led by Tony Starks, in favor to support government oversight and accountability and the other led by Steve Rogers, advocating to remain free to defend humanity without any government interference.

Captain America
If you have read the Civil War crossover comic book arc, then you know that Captain America was driven underground and was viewed as a fugitive by Iron Man and S.H.I.E.L.D following his resistance to the new legislation. Captain America led a resistance movement opposing Superhero Registration, which led to attacks and battles with Iron Man and his allies. We are not yet sure how close the film will be staying close to the comic book, but we do hope that the basics are featured!
Iron Man
What will drive the movie? Following the source material, we expect that the dynamic between Captain America and Iron Man will do so. In the comics, Tony Starks makes himself the leader of the Superhero Registration Act and is in direct conflict with Captain America. We are looking forward to epic battles between the two.

Black Panther
Marvel’s studio revealed that Black Panther would be playing a major role in this film. Fans are curious whether the role Black Panther will be playing in the same will be similar to the part in the comics played by Spider-Man. Can we expect the Black Panther to be caught in the middle of the dispute between Iron Man and Captain America? If so, this would be very interesting with Black Panther torn between both sides!


The Winter Soldier
The Winter Soldier was confirmed to be an important part of Captain America: Civil War. After we were left hanging during the second Captain America movie, we cannot wait to see what he has in store for us now that he knows that he is Bucky Barnes. It is implied in Captain America: The Winter Soldier that Bucky killed Tony Stark’s parents as part of a mission for Hydra. We hope that Captain America: Civil War provides a dramatic plotline where Tony discovers Bucky killed his parents. Tony will no doubt want to end Bucky, and this will not go well and is going to cause an additional conflict between Captain America and Iron Man.


Black Widow
We have to admit that Black Widow a.k.a Natasha Romanoff was one of the best parts of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. We know that she will be back for this film. We are not sure of the specifics of her role, but we do know that she is still a member of the Avengers. Since we are aware that she has very close relationships with both Iron Man and Captain America, which side will she choose? It will be quite the conundrum for her – will she be anti-registration or pro-registration? Will she choose? Will her decision cause more problems? Cannot wait to find out!

War Machine
The War Machine a.k.a Rhodey is now a full-fledged Avenger. He is a hard one to predict where his loyalties will lie when it comes to the conflict regarding Superhero Registration. On one side, he is a teammate with Captain America on the Avengers, but he has ties with Tony Stark’s that go way back. Some of us expect him to side with Iron Man due to their long friendship. It will be awesome to see Iron Man and War Machine, two guys in metal suits fighting side by side!

Preserving our forests

What is a Forest?

A forest can be defined as a large area of land which is covered with trees, and or other woody vegetation. Forests are the dominant terrestrial ecosystem which covers the earth and is distributed globally.

It is sad to note that currently, forests are disappearing at a very alarming rate all over the world.

Importance of Forests

It is vital to know that forest systems offer an array of beneficial natural services. Forests assist in purifying the air. The trees in the forest utilize the Carbon Dioxide in the air and Give out purified oxygen for breathing. This clearly puts out that if there are no forests, then the air that we breathe will not be pure. If there are no trees to metabolize the Carbon Dioxide emitted daily means that the air will be polluted.

Forests also help in cleaning the water. This is achieved through precipitation that is filtered through forests. They help in the prevention of impurities from gaining access into rivers and also streams. Through filtration of the water on various levels of the soil, toxins, sediments and other substances are filtered from the water thus the water ends up clean

Forests are also pivotal in the reduction of global warming. Since Carbon Dioxide presence is the main factor that causes global warming, presence of forests would clear this out. The trees would Utilize the Carbon Dioxide in the air and give out oxygen. This would then go a long way into reducing the global warming menace that is associated with deforestation.

It is also important to keep in mind the fact that forests are habitats of different varieties of birds and animals. Tampering with this natural resource results to an imbalance in the ecosystem and can cause worse effects even to the people living next to where the forests were.

How to Preserve Forests

The first and easiest way to preserve forests is by planting more trees. At this point in time, deforestation has been practiced in many places all over the world. However, by planting more trees, this problem can be rooted out. This will also go a very long way in preserving the natural habitat of birds, animals and also other communities who live in the forest up to date.

Everyone should also take it upon themselves to preserve the forests. This could be done by joining forest preservation societies whose aim is to preserve this natural resource. When many people come together with one idea of preserving the forests, the impact is always big.

Finally practicing Forest tourism can also save our forests. This is also known as ecotourism and it includes visitation to natural areas with an aim of educating the traveler on various trees, birds and even animals he or she might encounter in their natural environment which is the forest. This is a very beneficial venture and it can sustain the economy of those living around natural forests just by them conserving it.

Preserving our oceans

An ocean is generally defined as a body of saline water that composes much of the planet’s hydrosphere. The oceans cover almost 72% of the world’s surface. These include The Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, Southern and the Arctic Ocean.

There are numerous problems which are man-made that come to light very frequently which harm the environment, specifically the ocean. When it comes to acting on preserving the ocean, it is mostly presumed to be near impossible for a person or a small group of people to preserve the ocean on their own.

Few Common Practices That Harms the Ocean

For one to think about preserving the ocean, he or she should first point out the common practices which go a long way in destroying the ocean which is a much needed resource.

  • Accidentally or at times intentionally leaving behind nets and any other fishing materials in the ocean which end up harming the sea life. Most end up dying after they are trapped due to either exhaustion or suffocating. This makes it hard for them to get to the surface of the water for air thus they end up dead
  • Use of poison to fish also damages the ocean. In certain areas such as the Philippines, fishermen traditionally pour cyanide into the ocean to catch fish easily. However, such methods end up killing other sea life like plants and even the corals that form the reefs.
  • Waste such as sewage and garbage finding its way to the ocean harms the ocean leading to decomposition of the organic matter that destroys the ocean’s ecosystem.

 

These common practices mentioned here are just but a few of what man does to the ocean which results in its pollution thus hazardous. These are some of the things that should be avoided to preserve oceans and the marine life in them.

How to Preserve the Ocean

Paying attention to the idea of configuring civilization and figuring the ideal practices, it becomes very easy to preserve the ocean which is a very important resource. This can be done by getting the regular people to be involved and kick-start the journey of change. This can be done by educating the fishermen and to the owners of the local groceries into storing varied types of sea food. They should be taught on not to overfish one species of fish.

The local inhabitants should also be careful on what they throw away to the ocean to avoid pollution of the marine ecosystem. Fishermen should also be advised on not leaving their fishing gear out in the ocean as it endangers the sea life that live in the ocean.

It is important to make the people realize the value of the ocean and also of the life in it, either plant or fish. We should safeguard the ocean for our own good and for the future generation. Preserving the oceans should be one of our main priorities as it’s the home of vast sea life.

 

Ecosystem preservation

What Is an Ecosystem?

An ecosystem can be defined as a community of living organisms called producers, consumers and decomposers. It can also be explained as a complex set of relationship among the living resources including fish, animals, plants, trees, birds, water, soil, micro-organisms and people. In Summary, we can define an ecosystem as all the living things in a given area, interacting with each other, and also with their non-living environments such as weather, sun, soil, climate and the atmosphere.

There are different types of ecosystems namely: Forest, Grassland, Desert, Tundra, Fresh water and Marine Ecosystems.

How to Preserve Various Ecosystems

It is important to preserve wild ecosystems through organic agriculture. This can be done both through a direct and an indirect effect. This is achieved by preserving up to 70% of land as wild ecosystem thus making it to give extensive economic value for both the society that is involved and also for agriculture. This organic Agriculture is the use of no chemicals in farming, thus growing plants naturally with no chemicals at any stage.

The Ecosystem can be preserved by protecting the rain forests. This is vital seeing that the earth’s elegance is at risk due to deforestation and arrogance that people are treating nature with.

Another way of protecting the ecosystem is by being part of the green movement. Currently, there are numerous organizations whose main aim is to preserve the environment. These Green Movements target at maintaining a balance in the natural order. This is mainly a group of enthusiasts who love nature and prefer to preserve it in the best way there is possible. Most of the members go about this by informing and educating other people on issues concerning the environment, making them to be aware on how the dangers facing the ecosystem would impact them. This makes them enjoy the basis of conserving the natural habitat.

One can also preserve the ecosystem by using the open space conservation method. This involves leaving some pockets of space that is open where people can get adequate room to share nature. This can be wildlife, sunlight, grassland or even wood land. Just as long as there is open space where nature is left to endeavor on it’s own without any human interference.

On the other hand, marine ecosystem can be preserved by the carbon trading mechanism. This is where the setting off of the carbon is advanced thus preserving the sea animals from suffocating from inhaling too much carbon that is at times let directly into the oceans and seas, which are homes to numerous sea life.

Another way of maintain the native ecosystem could be through fencing off certain areas and setting them aside such as museums and national parks or game reserves. Within these places, the existence if the living organisms should be left to thrive on its own as nature would have it. There should be no external interference from people to try and control the ecosystem at any cost.
