Today watch... Ant-Man (2015) Armed with a super-suit with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, cat burglar Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, plan and pull off a heist that will save the world. Qell I hate to say it... but it took me a couple of watch to get the fuss about ant-man... firat watch ... I didn't really like it, but after watching for a second time and was able to see how much work went into it when things shrink I came to respect it. And the humor grew in me as well. So it gets away from the group of superheroes that we have been getting and tells us a much more personal story.... And Micheal Douglas kills it in every bit he is in #antman #paulrudd #evangelinelilly #michaslpena #marvel #steelbook #nzmovieclub #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #bluray #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like

Today watch ... Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) Tony Stark creates the Ultron Program to protect the world, but when the peacekeeping program becomes hostile, The Avengers go into action to try and defeat a virtually impossible enemy together. Earth's mightiest heroes must come together once again to protect the world from global extinction. I remember taking a friend who walking in basically walked in saying she didn't like superheroe movies and walked out converted and could stop singing the avengers praises... mission accomplished.... Anyway this movie sets the seeds for on of the best villains in a later movie and has one the faceoffs that fans have been asking for since the start.... the hulk buster... Anyway the avengers movies keep been very consistent and really enjoyable... #theavengers #theavengersageofultron #robertdowneyjr #markruffalo #chrishemsworth #chrisevans #scarlettjohansson #jeremyrenner #nzmovieclub #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #bluray #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like

Today watch... Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) Seven strangers, each with a secret to bury, meet at Lake Tahoe's El Royale, a rundown hotel with a dark past. Over the course of one fateful night, everyone will have a last shot at redemption - before everything goes to hell. Yeah I really enjoyed this one, great cast, great music and a really cool little storyline.... But just like the director most famous work "cabin in the woods" you may spend the first half of the movie wonder what the hell is going on. But when it clicks for you (hopefully it does), it is something original that we need to get away from all the reboots and franchises we are getting lately, but you are going need so patience espically as they go over the same part of the story many times. And don't expect all the answers at the end and it is a fun time. Also it not a action packed movie so sit back and relax. And that voice... seriously amazing. #badtimesattheelroyale #nzmovieclub #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #cinema #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like at Event Cinemas Whangarei

Today watch...Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 (2017) After saving Xandar from Ronan's wrath, the Guardians are now recognized as heroes. Now the team must help their leader Star Lord (Chris Pratt) uncover the truth behind his true heritage. Along the way, old foes turn to allies and betrayal is blooming. And the Guardians find that they are up against a devastating new menace who is out to rule the galaxy. Not quite as good as the first one, but that is setting the bar really high. But they the guardians know what they are doing know and they play it for all it worth.... Maybe the best open sequence in a marvel movie and let's face it have Kurt Russell makes everything cooler. But they new there strength is with baby Groot and the family dynamic they have built up, so they worked with it.... although the hyperspace jump made me laugh like hell... and also the end credits get ready for 5 post credits scenes.... I think James Gunn was going for the record... Anyway will be interesting to see where they go from here now the director has changed, I am a little worried as it was his humour that made the movies so great. #guardiansofthegalaxy #guardiansofthegalaxyvol2 #chrispratt #zoesaldana #vindiesel #bradleycooper #davebautista #marvel #nzmovieclub #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #bluray #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like at Northland Region

Today watch ....Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) After discovering a mysterious orb in another part of the galaxy, Peter Quill from Earth, is now the main target of a manhunt led by the genocidal villain Ronan the Accuser. Being hunted across the galaxy, Quill gets lumped together with a group of misfits that need to learn how to get along before they can become the "Guardians of the Galaxy". Before going into the movie... Gosh darn it marvel... you are really scrapping the the bottom of the b class heroes list hero nobody heard of with these guys... a gunslinger raccoon and a talking tree... and directed by a guy who used to direct Torma films... this is going to suck.. Me coming out of movie... That was friggin awesome!!! Boy was I wrong about that this one... in my defense I had a really bad week and the day I saw this was the same day that Robin Williams died. So for it to make me that happy, it was no small matter.... And one the best soundtracks that marvel every done Still one of my favorites in the mcu.... All I can say is .... I am Groot.... #guardiansofthegalaxy #chrispratt #zoesaldana #vindiesel #bradleycooper #davebautista #marvel #nzmovieclub #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #bluray #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like

Today's watch...Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) As Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world, he teams up with a fellow Avenger and S.H.I.E.L.D agent, Black Widow, to battle a new threat from history: an assassin known as the Winter Soldier. Ok serious marvel wha are going to give black widow her own she seriously steals every movie she in... Anyway the captain America movies are one of the few series that got better as they went along... although this might be a little bit to violent for the younger viewers and the political plot might be a little boring as well... But for everyone this is a great movie and one of my favorites of all the marvels.... and trust the best are still to come... #captainamerica #captainamericathewintersoldier #chrisevans #scarlettjohansson #marvel #nzmovieclub #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #bluray #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like at Kamo, New Zealand

Today's watch... Thor: The Dark World (2013) When Dr. Jane Foster gets cursed with a powerful entity known as the Aether, Thor is heralded of the cosmic event known as the Convergence and the genocidal Dark Elves. Well it had to happen sooner or later... A Marvel movie I didn't really like... don't really know what happened here, but nothing really moved me and nothing special really happened... only reason to watch it, is so you get one of the best cameo jokes in a later film.... But it does have one redeeming feature... one of the best one shots special features in the special features that will make the fans really happy. #thor #thorthedarkworld #chrishemsworth #tomhiddleston #natalieportman #marvel #nzmovieclub #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #bluray #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like

Today watch...Iron Man 3 (2013) When Tony Stark's world is torn apart by a formidable terrorist called the Mandarin, he starts an odyssey of rebuilding and retribution. Well in part 3... hold on.... Witty snarky conversation between buddy's Smart kid who knows more than the adults Set at Christmas.... This is a Shane Black movie....it is ... it is Sorry silliness over This one a little bit of a hard one as on one side you have maybe one the most divisive iron man movies but it is a important one as this where marvel started to trust there directors a little more and let them make it there own movie... this will become more important in later movies. But we do have one biggest and most controversial twists in a marvel movie (so much to keep the fans happy they fixed it in a one shot) and if you don't like Shane Black movies will this is not for you. But it good to see Tony out of the suit and still been a hero... and it has a great post credit scene as well. Anyway give it a chance... it is a important movie in the mcu but it does annoy some people.... #ironman #ironman3 #robertdowneyjr #doncheadle #gwynethpaltrow #guypearce #shaneblack #marvel #nzmovieclub #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #bluray #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like

Today watch .... Venom (2018) When Eddie Brock acquires the powers of a symbiote, he will have to release his alter-ego "Venom" to save his life. I had to give myself a night to digest this one. I didn't walk out with the feeling of anger aka Suicide Squad but I wasn't fan buying over it either.... this one is strictly ok, but nothing special... although I did have a few good laughs and the post and end credits where really good I would be be happy to see as a cheap day movie which this was. I think it would have been better if the kept it a hard ar rated movie and made him the Villain as originally intended eating heads it would get as much hate... but the pg 13 version he not that scary.... #venom #tomhardy #michellewilliams #marvel #nzmovieclub #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #cinema #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like at Event Cinemas Whangarei

Today watch...The Avengers (2012) Earth's mightiest heroes must come together and learn to fight as a team if they are going to stop the mischievous Loki and his alien army from enslaving humanity. Definition synergy noun the interaction or cooperation of two or more organizations, substances, or other agents to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects. Yep, that abouts sums it up, separately they would never of been this, but together they k locked it out of the park.... one of my favorites in the mcu, only just beaten recently.... Don't think about just go want it... the new hulk is Brilliant, espically when he fighting Loki #theavengers #robertdowneyjr #chrisevans #chrishemsworth #markruffalo #scarlettjohansson #jeremyrenner #tomhiddleston #marvel Insta - #nzmovieclub #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #bluray #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like

The look on my face when I read that the original drunken master is having it 40th birthday today... man time flies.... still remember crowding around a 14 inch TV in 1997 when someone brought in a well used rental VHS copy of this and it blew my mind... although maybe over shadow by part 2 it is still a important film as it was the start of the whole comedy king fu genre #drunkenmaster #drunkenmaster40th #jackiechan #kungfumovies

Today's watch... Thor (2011) The warrior Thor (Hemsworth) is cast out of the fantastic realm of Asgard by his father Odin (Hopkins) for his arrogance and sent to Earth to live among humans. Falling in love with scientist Jane Foster (Portman) teaches Thor much-needed lessons, and his new-found strength comes into play as a villain from his homeland sends dark forces toward Earth. Thor: [walking into a pet shop] I need a horse! Pet Store Clerk: We don't have horses. Just dogs, cats, birds. Thor: Then give me one of those large enough to ride. I have no idea why that but makes me laugh everytime but it does... Yeah it tries to be Shakespearean but when you have one of the most famous Shakespearean actors directing... well that a given It got a lot of hate from the critics but I really enjoyed it, see a character so might brought down to earth (pun intended) just worth for me. And we get the last of the big names of the series introduced Loki, Hawkeye and Thor. Anyway I enjoyed it anyway... #thor #chrishemsworth #anthonyhopkins #natalieportman #tomhiddleston #stellanskarsgard #marvel #nzmovieclub #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #bluray #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like

Today's watch... Iron Man 2 (2010) With the world now aware of his identity as Iron Man, Tony Stark must contend with both his declining health and a vengeful mad man with ties to his father's legacy. Again more of the same from Tony Stark as we saw a couple of days ago, but we get to meet a few fan favorites characters here, Fury, Warmachine and a scene stealing Black widow. Maybe not as strong as part one, but when it gets to the ending action set piece it delivers big time. Anaway the dominoes are getting all into place for what we are all waiting for. #ironman #ironman2 #robertdowneyjr #gwynethpaltrow #doncheadle #scarlettjohansson #samuelljackson #nzmovieclub #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #bluray #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like

Today watch...The Incredible Hulk (2008) Bruce Banner, a scientist on the run from the U.S. Government, must find a cure for the monster he turns into, whenever he loses his temper. Ok let's gets the positive things out the way first... it is better than the Ang lee hulk... they got rid of emo hulk and just let he well ...smash... Anyway this was the hardest movie of the MCU for me to find but I found Edward Norton ok but not really invested in the role, Liv Tyler has some parts that looks like she forgot how to act in some places and the only one who seem to trying is the bad guys which where really good. Maybe I have always found the hulk character better when he has team mates to work with than solo... but the next time we get to to see him, it will be the best he ever been... #theincrediblehulk #edwardnorton #livtyler #timroth #marvel #nzmovieclub #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #bluray #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like

Today's watch... Iron Man (2008) After being kidnapped by a powerful terrorist organization, brilliant industrialist Tony Stark narrowly escapes using an iron suit he crafted from scrap metal and spare parts. Upon returning home, he devotes all of his time and resources to perfecting the iron man suit, and using it to fight evil, sometimes in the place where he least expects it. Come on sing a long ...you know you want to ....has he lost his mind... No... ok then.... I Will be humming I'm the corner by myself... Maybe the best regardard of the early marvel movies, basically perfect casting and some of the wittiest dialog coming from a snarky Mr Stark puts this above the superhero movies that came before it... Trust me nobody expected this to be as good as it was... most people where expecting a flop and we would never hear from Ironman again... boy we where so wrong.... Anyway still holds up well 10 years after it was released... although some movies improved the marvel formula this was the first and it gets my respect for that . #ironman #robertdowneyjr #terrencehoward #gwynethpaltrow #marvel #nzmovieclub #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #bluray #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like at Northland Region

Today watch .... Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) Steve Rogers, a rejected military soldier transforms into Captain America after taking a dose of a "Super-Soldier serum". But being Captain America comes at a price as he attempts to take down a war monger and a terrorist organization. If you are wondering I'm watch the marvel movies in recommended timeline order not real ease order... so first up good old captain America.... It is a good origin story but not my favorite captain America movie... but it is light and breezy and good popcorn fodder.... even Tommy lee Jones looks he having fun... cracking some of the best one liners in the film. Anyway a good start to marvel season... #captainamerica #captainamericathefirstavenger #chrisevans #tommyleejones #hayleyatwell #marvel #nzmovieclub #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #bluray #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like

Today's watch... Terminator Salvation (2009) In the not too distant future, John Connor is a key member of the resistance against the machines that have taken over the Earth. From the recordings his mother has left him, he knows he has to find Kyle Reese and send him back to Earth if the future is to occur as it should. Reese is just a teenager now, on the run like many other humans. While in the company of another survivor, Marcus Wright, Kyle is taken prisoner by the machines and transported to Skynet's headquarters in San Francisco. Connor sets out to rescue him but is shocked by Wright's true nature. Not all is at it seems to be and success is far from guaranteed. This one got alot of hate when it came out but I still enjoy it cause of three things 1. It tried something different with the future settings 2. It had so great new robots and 3. The story was half easy to understand unlike genisys... so it not all bad... check it it out if you can keep in mind it no way meets the standard of 1 & 2. That setting the bar a little high, remember McG is directing this one. #terminator #terminatorsalvation #christianbale #samworthington #moonbloodgood #antonyelchin #nzmovieclub #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #bluray #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like
