First off, Civil War! Phase 3's first movie is Civil War!!
Then, then, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange! Though it's not final yet and after he said 'probably not' at one point because he was gonna be Hamlet!
And now my week is complete (despite it just being Wednesday) because the scene they released with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is, in fact, the one they showed in Comic-con!
WHERE EVERYONE TRIES TO LIFT THOR'S HAMMER!!
Well, half of everyone. That, I know now.
I embed said video below. The rest of the vid is mostly footage from the
leakedreleased trailer from last week.
[Cumberbatch and Hiddles in the Marvel universe!! Internet, start imploding at the thought! Now, if the 'Batch becomes J'onn J'onzz... he will officially win the (comic book) world.]

The official trailer just
leakeddropped! Usually I have awful timing and only get up to speed, like, a week later or something.
It seems that the official trailer was supposed to air during next week's episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but this was all over the Interwebz yesterday.
Marvel's reaction to this was:

HA HA HA!
and they relented and followed up with the official release (embedded below). Do watch in (H)HD!
Two-and-a-half minutes long, we finally get to see Ultron as portrayed by James Spader (having been teased in that awesome multi-character poster released some months ago), and he sounds fantastic at being foreboding and malevolent (I guess all that talking on his part in The Blacklist really helped). I cannot wait to see/hear him (heard he also did the motion capture) when Age of Ultron finally opens.
*Disclaimer: Still dependent on whether I've the cajones to go through paying RM30 for something that might make me nauseous.

[And I finally could be bothered (screw grammar!) to release this post. Soooo overdue; includes some movies I didn’t get around to reviewing yet.]
I'm actually pretty proud of myself, when it came to watching movies last year. Out of the 16 on my list, two (#13 and #14) got pushed into 2014, and two others (#2 and #10) I did not watch.
2013 Movie List
- Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters
- Warm Bodies
- Jack the Giant Slayer
- Oz: Great and Powerful
- G.I. Joe: Retaliation
- Iron Man 3
- Star Trek Into Darkness
- Man of Steel
- World War Z
- Monsters University
- The Wolverine
- 300: Rise of an Empire
- Sin City: A Dame to Kill for
- Thor: The Dark World
- 47 Ronin
So 12 above and 1 outside of list, and I watched 13 movies in 2013 ohwowaccidenttotesneat.
2014 movie list will be up in a bit (and by 'a bit', I mean 'tomorrow or something').
[Blogger's note: This post has been so delayed that I finally saw Warm Bodies and Monsters University on pay-TV. Reviews eventually! And no, this doesn't count as meeting the list; meeting means going to the theatres or at least, watching it in the year it's released in.]
[Splitting posts is not cheating. Not really, anyway.]

Going through hashtag search showed me QUITE a number of repeats, though from different people. I hope I've gotten all original ones.

It’s purely by accident that I discovered this trending Twitter hashtag.
And I’m very glad I did.
One of my major, major loves (aside from bitchin’) is movies, and I’m having a huge blast going and guessing my way through the tweets. For some reason, Titanic, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Star Wars and Forrest Gump are very popular choices, although I did see some good ones relating to Captain America.
This hashtag adds to the long list of things that make me want to get Twitter, but I’m still resisting! But I can’t help but participate in this one, though. In keeping with tradition, my contributions are below 140 characters. Answers are below each description line, blacked out, so please highlight.
- Surfer dude carries out father’s legacy, targets matricidal detective. #ExplainAFilmPlotBadly
- Batman and Wolverine try to one-up each other while Alfred and Black Widow take sides. #ExplainAFilmPlotBadly
- Extraterrestrial securing preservation of own species, constantly thwarted by humans using time travel and plot holes. #ExplainAFilmPlotBadly
Men in Black 3
- Buddy cop movie perpetuates stereotypes of blacks being really, really loud, and of Chinese doing kung-fu. Does this three times. #ExplainAFilmPlotBadly
Rush Hour films.
- Aliens make old people young again or something. #ExplainAFilmPlotBadly
Cocoon. Okay, maybe I jumped the shark with this one.
Argh, temptation! I'm seriously pumped about this one :P
