4 in 1 Movies we watched - Iron Man 2, Robin Hood, Prince of Persia, Sex and the City 2

Why 4 in 1? 

Well, because of my absence here for a month all the movies we've watched within the time I'm not here will be in this entry. I must say week after week, very good movies came out so imagine us being at the cinemas every week! :) But I don't think I can make this entry long enough to get into details but I'll try to give in as much as I can. 

First - Iron Man 2

Robert Downey Jr. once again came back for the sequel of Iron Man and still he looks amazing for his age. Iron Man was really becoming famous then after Tony Stark admitted publicly that he is Iron Man. At the start, there are several negative impacts that came about, his issues with the government who wanted him to hand in his Iron Man armour, he also discovered that the palladium in the arc reactor keeping his heart beating has begun to poison his body - which led him to appoint Pepper to become the new CEO of Stark Industries. With all the arrangements done, the character of Natalie played by Scarlett Johansson came in. Then while he is Monaco, he faced Ivan Vanko played by Mickey Rourke - who was able to make an arc reactor of his own with the help of the blueprints from his physicist father Anton Vanko.

With those happening, Justin Hammer played by Sam Rockwell took the advantage after he saw Ivan at the racetrack trying to defeat Iron Man. He got Ivan out of the prison and hired him to make Iron Man suits so they will be able to overpower Tony Stark at his own expo. Tony got all drunk on his birthday party and had given Lt. Colonel James Rhodes played by Don Cheadle no other way but to use the other suit Tony made to make him stop. So after all the bad happening he was approached by Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D played by Samuel L. Jackson, then he found out that Natalie is also a part of that group. They gave Tony his father's chest full of old belonging hoping to help him out with the palladium problem. So during the expo everything happened there - all the fight scenes with Tony and James who worked together to bring down Ivan. Then the rooftop kiss with tony and Pepper. XD how sweet can it be? So Iron Man became the consultant for S.H.I.E.L.D and Tony and JAmes has been awarded with Medal of Honors by the government.

Second - Robin Hood

This is a bit short. Robin Longstride as we all know played by Russell Crowe, has been with King Richard while he was out conquering other places. Not until the king's death he was able to return to England thru the king's crown together with his friends Will Scarlett, Alan-a-Dale and Little John. He promised to a knight that he will return his sword to the knight's father in Nottingham right before the knight died in front of him. while in Nottingham he was able to meet the wife, Marian and the father of the knight, Walter. 

Little do King John know, Godfrey betrayed his own country and has let the enemies into their grounds. But eventually he found out before it's too late and since King John is weak and has no idea on fighting, so in order to have the people unite and fight with him, Robin kinda helped him out and they came to an agreement which in the end King John didn't approved of which ticks a lot of people off. England won because their enemies backed off but without the unity of all the people including Lady Marian and the kids who fought he wouldn't have gathered that much people to battle. After the agreement has been disapproved, Robin from the Hood has been declared an outlaw - which the story showed the history why he became an outlaw.

Third - Prince of Persia (The Sands of Time)

okay, I have to admit that I'm a fan of this since I was a little kid! I've been playing Prince of Persia I think when I was still in grade 4 with the old pc system. Dastan played by Jake Gyllenhaal is a street kid and later on the king saw him and adopted him into his family. The story depicts interesting events but it all leads down to one purpose of his uncle which was to get hold of the dagger and the sand that could bring back time which he shouldn't have saved his brother - the king. All the kings that happened in the story returns back to the time they conquered the city of Alamut with Princess Tamina at the sacred room praying and Dastan telling his brothers Garsiv and Tus everything he found out while they got inside the city. The dagger was given back to the princess for safekeeping and they eventually learned things about each other after his brother announced that Dastan and Tamina should get married.

It's actually better if you could watch the movie, it's really good! All the scenes and effects are great!

Fourth - Sex and the City 2

So this is the movie I watched last night, amazing! Triple F!! Fun, Friendship and Fabulous! 
I love the movie very much, at first I thought it was a prequel to the movie but actually it's a sequel. At first it just showed how they met and who they were before but after that the storyline is already focusing on the present. Imagine the movie with a very nice gay wedding, yes! there is and you just have to watch to find out who got married. Smith also was in the movie which is the reason how they got to travel to Abu Dhabi, all the adventures that happened while they were there taught them a lot too when they got home especially for Carrie. One of the ex also guest in the film and had made an impact to a relationship, positive or negative? It's for you to find out, it's just the first week. And you can really see that even if the going gets tough but as long as they're together they can surpass it all. That's how true girlfriends are! :)

Not to forget, I love the clothes and the heels. The sense of style in fashion is still there even if they fly to another country with strict traditions, just take a look at them wearing heels while in the desert. From the start til the end, there's no boring part in the movie. I'm loving this from the series up to the movies.

Now, I'm reaching this part to end this long overdue entry again. I wasn't able to blog last May since we're really busy with work, everyday at least we'd get to work overtime just to finish everything in time for the deadline. Right now, I'm trying to make a logo for my new online shop. I will be opening it on facebook and linking it to my multiply and ebay account for feedbacks and references of new future buyers. I do hope that it will do good! :)
