Supergirl – the TV series (2015-present)

Supergirl
~ TV-PG | 43min | Action, Adventure, Drama | TV Series (2015– ) | Creators: Ali Adler, Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg; Starring: Melissa Benoist, Mehcad Brooks, Chyler Leigh, and many more – see IMDB for details. ~

A spin-off tale of Kryptonian survival, just as when Superman (Kal-El) is expelled to safety from the destruction of Krypton, so too was his cousin Kara – who was sent to protect him. They were separated as Kara accidentally gets delayed in the Phantom Zone and is unable to watch over Kal-El. She finally arrives and is adopted in a similar sense as young Clark Kent. She grows up as Kara Danvers and slowly discovers her abilities, purpose, and history. She is exposed to the Department of Extra-Normal Operations and recruited to fight alien invasions, crime, and attacks – as another champion super heroe saving the planet. A great super-heroe story in epic mirroring of Superman from a femal perspective and heroine tale. I am loving the series.

Rated: 4.75 of 5 stars. ~ Review by Leaf McGowan/Thomas Baurley, Technogypsie Productions ~

Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen (2009: R)

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (PG-13: 2009)

* Director: Michael Bay * Starring: Shia LaBeouf … Sam Witwicky; Megan Fox … Mikaela Banes; Josh Duhamel … Major Lennox; Tyrese Gibson … USAF Master Sergeant Epps; John Turturro … Seymour Simmons; Ramon Rodriguez … Leo Spitz; and many more.

The continuing saga of those extra-terrestrial vehicle-transforming-electronic-alien race that live amongst us hidden. For those who’ve seen the previous movies and comics, its about the story of Sam who was selected as a caretaker of these aliens. But Sam is grown up now. He’s ready to head off to college and the Transformers want to go with him. He says no, and he realizes he can’t escape them. The early hidden race of decepticons are rising and awakening their brothers “The Fallen” and cause havock in Shanghai. Unfortunately, even though the autobots are in league with the U.S. military, a presidential envoy believe the existence of the autobots on our planet is what is causing the trouble and asks them to leave. But the Decepticons are not about the autobots, but rather something about Sam and a mystery of ressurrection for the Fallen. Its a crazy adventure of transformation sorts. Rating: 4 stars out of 5.

Avatar (PG-13: 2009)

* http://www.avatarmovie.com/index.html * Starring/Cast/Staff: Sam Worthington … Jake Sully; Zoe Saldana … Neytiri; Sigourney Weaver … Dr. Grace Augustine; Stephen Lang … Colonel Miles Quaritch; Joel Moore … Norm Spellman (as Joel David Moore); Giovanni Ribisi … Parker Selfridge; Michelle Rodriguez … Trudy Chacon; Laz Alonso … Tsu’tey; Wes Studi … Eytukan; and many more.
An epic tale of “Fern Gully: The Last Rainforest” all grown up and laden with steroids. One of James Cameron’s most spectacular feats ever! This movie had moved me on so many levels it isn’t funny – ringing true on cultural preservation, environmental protection, the war, spirituality, otherworldly creatures, and about corporate greed that is destroying the planet upon which we live. It is definitely more of a wake-up call than its animated predecessor “Fern Gully” produced. The acting, the drama, the action, the visuals, the art, and the concepts were all mind-blowing. Add in the 3-D and IMAX experience and what you have is a psychedelic wet dream. The story takes place in the far future, where America, over-run by Corporations, desperate for natural resources for its dying planet, has travelled light years away to a distant planet that holds a presence resource “Un-OBtanium”. This highly valuable mineral, is in the core of the planet “Pandora” which is inhabited by an alien “Faerie”-like race known as the “Na’vi”. The humans struggling without being able to breathe the air of Pandora, unable to handle the violent lifeforms that don’t want them there, and attempting to acculturate a native humanoid-like people to their ways places their mining expedition on the brink of failure. So they take the paraplegic identical twin brother of one of their research scientists who formerly died, a Marine, to this planet to help convince the Na’vi to move to another part of the forest so they can get their precious mineral. Over-riden with corporate greed, the executive Parker, refuses to let the biggest deposit of unOBtainium alone, even though its underneath the Na’vi’s most sacred tree and settlement. The science department developes a way for humans to merge their minds into the bodies of Na’vi hosts called “Avatars”. Through this innovation, Parker and Dr. Grace Augustine (Sigourney Weaver) feel they can become part of the Na’vi tribe and communicate to them to “move” from this location – peaceably. A gun-toting colonel is set to just kill off the race. Sully has 3 months to become one with the Na’vi and achieve a peaceful solution. Of course, the Na’vi are too spiritually tied to the land, the trees, and their village to move. Sully bonds with the Na’vi and falls in love with Netiri causing the restless Colonel to move forward with his mad plans to exterminate the Na’vi. Warfare breaks out as Sully becomes one with Na’vi and helps them defeat the evil humans from their greedy plans. This is a must-see. One of the most amazing movies ever produced. Rating : 5+ stars out of 5.
