Hello there, today I'm reviewing Marvel Civil War. The Marvel Civil War is a series of graphic novels documenting the lives of some famous and not-so-famous superheroes...and villains. The whole idea of this series is based of the real Civil War, hence the name. The idea I'm talking about is friends turning on other friends, etc. For instance, Captain America and Iron Man have a long fight because they are on different sides of the Civil War. That is not the only example. Throughout the series Deadpool turns on Cable, and Spiderman has a humungous fight with Titanium Man. There is something in the Marvel universe called the Superhero Registration Act which is a law that forces superheroes to give all their secret info to the government. This starts a large civil war in the superhero community. Some people do want to register and some don't. This series' concept is cool and the writing is superb. Many of the books were written by modern comic revolutionary Brian Michael Bendis who is one of my favorites. Inside each Civil War book you'll find mini-stories that are sometimes tie-ins, meaning they appeared in other comics first. All in all, these books are one of the best modern series marvel has cranked out yet.

Namor is a half atlantean, half human. He has the mutant power to fly and because of his human side he can breathe air, and because of his atlantean side he can breathe water. He is relatively stronger than humans and can swim way better than any human can. He carries a large sea trident as well.
Aquaman is a human. His mother died when he was a baby. His father devloped a home under the sea and taught young Aquaman how to breathe underwater. He later taught himself how to speak to fish and other marine life. After that due to nuclear radiation he developed a disadvantage: he had to be in water at least once an hour.
They are both equally skilled at swimming. Aquaman is slightly stronger. Namor can fly and has a trident.
Aquaman has to be in water at least once an hour, Namor doesn't. If the battle between the two were on land, Namor would win. If the battle were in water Aquaman would win.

Hello there, today I will be talking about superman, one of the most iconic superheroes ever. He is one of DC's biggest accomplishments, next to Batman. Superman has all the ideal powers, powers that marvel sort of of stole from them. For instance superman has laser vision, so does cyclops. But whatever they're both cool. Also superman has super strength, the ability to fly, x-ray vision, and is impervious to pain. I give superman a 8.2/10, because he has all the essential powers.

Hello there, sorry I haven't been posting stuff as much lately. I had to go back to school. Replacing State of the Day I have Superhero of the Day.
Spiderman's secret identity is Peter Parker. Peter Parker gets bitten by a mutant spider and strange things happen. He is resistant to pain, he has super strength, and he can stick to walls. Thinking this was an chance to make money he performed on television and was a short lived pro boxer. One day after a match a masked robber ran down the hall, with a chance to stop him Peter did nothing. The same robber went on to kill his uncle Ben. Determined for revenge he built himself a pair of web shooters and went out fighting crime and looking for the robber. In 2002 they made a Spiderman movie.
The movie was very good just not correct on some of the things that happened. This superhero gets an 8.7/10.

Hello, today I’m reviewing A View to a Kill. This movie was the second best Roger Moore movie, next to Live and Let Die. It is about a horse-trainer who is injecting steroids into the horses and implanting microchips in them. He also plans to wipe out silicon valley so he is the leading producer of microchips. Bond foils his plan and fights him atop the famous Golden Gate Bridge, winning. This was the last of Roger Moore’s movies as James Bond. I give this one a 9.1.
Hello, today I’m reviewing Octopussy. This movie was about as good as For Your Eyes Only. It is about a ceramic egg that gets auctioned to a man who’s associated to jewelry smugglng. James Bond switches the egg and has Q implant the fake with a tracking device and microphone so Bond can spy on the smugglers later known as Octopussy. The head of the corporation Octopussy eventually turns for good after she finds out the man who bought the egg at the auction is helping the Russian army implant a bomb that will blow up tracing back to the U.S.A. Overall I give this one an 8.7.

Hello, this is a review of For Your Eyes Only. It was definitely better than Moonraker. A Greek with the ATAC, a british device gets blown up by a bomb launched by a Greek heroin smuggler. It is bonds job to find the smuggler and retrieve the ATAC. The smuggler does get killed, by another Greek smuggler of cashews who throws a knife at him. Bond gets a hold of the ATAC but throws it into the water… This movie reminded me a little of From Russia With Love with the whole” Bond has to get a hold of a certain item." Overall I give this one 8.6.

Hello, this is a review of Moonraker. It was probably the worst of all the Roger Moore movies I’ve seen. It was still good but not what I expected. The title got me thinking a. it’s going to take place mostly on the moon or at least in space.
They did go in space but it was at the end. A really cool thing though was the laser fight and James Bond’s wrist dart shooter. Jaws dies in this one too. Overall I give this one a 7.2.
P.S. If you want to scare somebody... find somebody you live with and tell them ghosts are haunting our house. Then when the person isn't looking tie 4-5 strings to the door in your house in the room the other person is in. Then pull the strings. Depending on where you are it will either slam the door or pull it open.

P.S: I didn't have nightmares...
NOTE: If you live with someone else in your house or multiple, ( even better), that are familiar with this movie this is a funny trick. Grab a pair of big scissors or fabric scissors and cut four little holes in a shirt that you don't need anymore. Put the shirt on and in the places were your skin is exposed and put fake blood in the holes, if it drips don't worry that's more realistic. Also if you don't have fake blood just lying around you can buy it here:
Also if you want to do it the fun way here is a link to a recipe for fake blood:

Hello, this is a review of The Spy who Loved Me. This was a good movie. In my opinion not as good as Live an Let Die or The Man with the Golden gun. It was the first James Bond movie to feature Richard Kiel as menacing Jaws. James Bond has to foil the villains plan of launching nuclear missiles at various large cities. He does and destroys his “Atlantis”, an underwater base, all well getting away in a comfortable escape pod with the spy who loved him, Agent XXX or triple x. Overall I give this one an 8.5.

Hello, today I'm reviewing Evil Dead. This movie is about 5 teenagers who end up in a forest haunted with zombies after accidentally playing a tape recording that brings back the dead. This movie only has 5 characters and 1 setting and it was pretty low budget. Sadly the Zombies weren't as scary as i thought they'd be. The acting was good especially at the end. The last half hour has almost no dialog what so ever, it's all acting. Also the shaky camera moving through the house effect was cool. Scary-scale: 3.2. This movie didn't scare me.

Hello there, I am reviewing The Man with the Golden Gun. This Bond movie for me was pretty much like Live and Let Die but not as good. It has some highlights like when Bond shoots that guy in the crotch. The movie is mainly about Bond trying to avoid master assasin Francesco Scaramanga's many attempts at killing him along with his sidekick Knick-Knack, played by Herve Villechaize. There is a memorable car chase in which Bond jumps an AMC over a river. It was pretty killer. Also the golden gun was pretty cool because it's made of household items. I'd give this one 7 out of 10.

Hi, this is Live and Let Die A Review. For starters this is about one thing, three guys getting killed. One in Harlem, one in New Orleans, and one in San Marino. That brings in an interesting voodoo idea. This movies good, except for the first part with racist mentions of the Ku-Klux-Klan and James Bond racistly dissing some people. But if you forget about the racism the first part is great with a car chase, Bond knocking some guys out with a ladder, and a trapdoor in a bar. This is also the first Roger Moore and I'm trying not to like him as much as Connery but it's hard, he's good. The bad guy is Mr. Big he's the man that had the three agents killed, he sucks. But he's cool! Also at the end Bond has a boat chase and jumps a highway in the louisiana bayous. That was rated as the 3rd best stunt in James Bond history. That move wasn't liked by sheriff big southern cop guy (not real name, I forgot, I'll just say that.) Sheriff big southern cop guy is actually a returning character, so bye that's all I got.
He killed 4 people
He made out 3 times
He got in 3 car chases
There were 7 explosions
There was one Yaphet Kotto
Bell bottom factor: 6 (At least one person per 2 scenes was wearing them.)
