MARVEL STUDIOS SUCCESS

            You better know that comic-book movies are all the rage right now. They are making the most money and are usually the best all around film. But the studio who has mastered the formula is obviously MARVEL studios. What is the formula? The secret is plan  a head. In 2010 President of Consumer Products for MARVEL said he has the master list for their movies planed out as far as 2017 and they were going to tagline it around the phrase "Avengers Assemble." Since that time Captain America, Thor, The Avengers, and most recently Iron Man 3 have all come out. You can tell there plann has been working because Avengers is the 3rd highest grossing film right infront of Iron Man 3.
    Kevin Feige recently sat down with WIRED and Kevin (the president of production at MARVEL) told them "I could arguably say that we're planning for the year 2021. Will that happen? I dont know. But what we planned for 2015 in 2006 is happening." Moving forward, they want us to establish relationships with the new characters other than the core 5 we have right now. Kevin later stated that "Five years ago, looking ar our plan, we knew that if Avengers was going to work, the movies had to stand alone. Now we have to prove to the studio that we're more than just theses five characters, these five franchises." And it seems like that they have stuck to their word because we are going to see a Guardians of the Galaxy on August 1st, 2014 and Ant-Man on November 6th, 2015.
    You can tell Marvel has lots of confidence in their films because Captain America:The Winter Soldier comes out on April 4th, 2014. This film comes out really close to 2 other superhero films. X-Men days of Future Past which comes out on May 23rd, 2014 and The Amazing Spiderman 2 on May 2nd, 2014. Lets see if Marvels success can continue. The first Amazing Spider-man made $752million dollars world wide, Captain America made $368million, and X-Men:First Class made $353millon. Comment down below if you think The Amazing Spider-man franchise will continue its reign or will Marvel dominate the spring with Captain America:The Winter Soldier. Comment down below your 2014 spring movie winner. 
    Feige has been recorded many times this year saying that the studio needs to keep crafting movies that are different. He is sticking to that word because in the future we will see a Guardians of the Galaxy, Ant-Man and Dr.Strange coming in the near future. I just wonder what they are going to do through 2021. Im really hoping for a Black Panther. After all he is one of the founding Avengers and the "theme" for Marvels movies is "Avengers Assemble." Comment down below which film you would like to see before 2021. I really dont think it will end then.

Percy Jackson:Sea of Monsters review

     The latest installment in the Pecy Jackson series The Sea of Monsters came out. This movie fallows Pecy Jackson a demi-god (half god half human) on a quest to save his beloved home Camp Half Blood, the only place in the world where Demi-gods are save. But when the wall that protects the camp is broken every Demi-god is in danger.  Then they figured out they need to retrieve the golden fleece from the Sea of Monsters (or the Bermuda Triangle. ) So Mr.D sent out Clarisse to lead a quest towards The Sea of Monsters. But Percy is not on this quest. Later on Percy figures out that there is a prophecy about him. Then he leads his own quest to The Sea of Monsters with his friend Annabeth, his satyr friend Grover, and his new cyclops brother Tyson. But when Grover gets captured there quest not only is to get the Golden Fleece before Luke (who wants to unleash Kronos) but to save Grover. 
     I love the Percy Jackson books. And I completely have forgotten what happens in the 2nd book. So I didn't re-read it so I didnt compare the movie to the book like I did with the first one. You don't need to read the book before you see the movie!
     Ok. Lets start off with the few negatives this film has. Let's move on to the positives.
     Now let's talk about how genius this film is. Lets start off with the little things. The music was great. For every scene it was appropriate. The director did a really good job for picking the songs/music to set the mood. They way the film started was awesome. It explains to you the whole demigod and camp half blood thing so you can understand the film with out reading the books. Then there is a flashback to make you understand even more. But when it comes to the present day the movie starts off how I like every movie to start. Action. And even better the chemistry between the characters! The first real thing that stands out is the chemistry between Percy and Clarisse. The real rivalry between the 2. And then between Tyson and Percy. I love it when you can feel what the characters are going through.  They did an excellent job casting. The new characters they brought in we awesome. The played the characters exactly like they should've by making the main and important characteristics of each of them to stand out. The story was creative. The way the director made it so the main points of the book are the main parts of the movie was pure awesome. 
     Over all this film is one of my favorite of the year. It is fun and they did a good job for making this enjoyable for Percy Jackson and non Percy Jackson fans. Over all I give this film a A, a 4.7 or a 9.5.
