Captain America Civil War Movie Review

May 11, 2016 in Entertainment

 

captain america cival warWow how can I begin to describe the experience of watching this movie, because let me tell you it was an experience. First of all if you were like me growing up I always wanted to see some superheroes going against each other and see how they would fair against each other. This answer most of my questions, from the very beginning it is a action pack movie that hasn’t disappointed the entire Marvel tread of movies. I mean to see the Black Panther vs. Captain America, Black Widow vs. Arrow, Spider Man vs. Winter Soldier and so many more battles that keep you entertain throughout the entire movie.

I really enjoyed how they divided the Avengers from the very start and my only disappointment would have to be the absence of Thor but you need to read about the history through the comic books to see why they might have went that route. But the entire fighting scene were awesome there is one running scene that keeps you on the edge of your seats. The appearance of Spider Man and the way he held his own against the worlds mightiest was second to none for my favorite scene. Specials effects were great and you must also pay close attention to the entire story line to fully appreciate all that is going on.

If you haven’t seen it then I suggest you take the family, it’s a movie everyone will enjoy kids of all ages and adults as well and don’t forget to stick around for after the critics it’s worth the wait. I added the trailer below just so you can glimpse at what I’m talking about.

Im a kid at heart. So yes I play with toys plus I have four kids to play with.

My First Time at Monday Night Raw #WWEDads #WWEMoms

March 29, 2015 in Entertainment / Uncategorized

Not to long ago I was able to live one if my life long dreams and that was to go to Monday Night Raw.I mean I grew up watching Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior, The British Bulldogs and my ultimate favorite tag team partners, The Legion of Doom but I was never fortunate enough to actually see them live so when. I got the chance to go with my family. I had the time of my life and the environment was awesome. I gave my six year old green light to scream as loud and as long as he wanted and he took full advantage. MY oldest son and I bounded as we enjoy the superstars of today like John  Cena , Randy Orton,Mark Henry and several more. I suggest that if your son really likes Wrestling there isn’t an age limit to take them to one of these actual live event. Now I have two girls and two boys and the girls were really into it as well I honestly thought that they were not going to enjoy themselves but what ended up  happening was that they were screaming and having a blast with us all. Also asking question about who is who and believe it or not brother and sister were bounding as well. I was so pumped up in the arena I mean it was everything I imagine it would be.What you don’t see on television is the interaction that all these guys do with the audience and the extra time they take to give high fives to everyone, I am making plans to go Wrestle Mania make sure you come and join us. For more Info check out www.wwe.com/events

No hace mucho tiempo tuve la oportunidad de vivir una de mis sueños ir a Monday night Raw (Lucha Libre). Crecí viendo Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior, The British Bulldogs y mis favorito grupo The Legion of Doom. Pero nunca tuve la suerte de ver lo en vivio por lo que cuando. Tuve la oportunidad de ir con mi familia y pasé el mejor momento de mi vida y el ambiente era increíble. Le di a mi hijo de seis años luz verde para gritar fuerte y le encanto. Mi hijo mayory yo conectamos por ser fans de las superestrellas de hoy como John Cena, Randy Orton, Mark Henry y varios más. Sugiero que si su hijo le gusta mucho la lucha libre deven de llevar los, no hay un límite de edad para estos eventos. Ahora tengo dos niñas y dos niños. Honestamente pensé que las  niñas no iban a divertirse, pero lo que terminó pasar era que estaban gritando y teniendo una explosión de emoción. Tambien estaban preguntando sobre quién es quién a su hermano. Era todo lo que yo me imagine que sería .Estoy haciendo planes para ir a Wrestle Mania asegúrese de venir y ir con nosotros. Para mas informacion www.wwe.com/events

New Series : TRANSFORMERS: Robots in Disguise

March 27, 2015 in Entertainment / Uncategorized

I remember every Saturday morning waking up to watch cartoons. It was a tradition for me and my older brother. In the line up of shows was Transformers. I loved every second if it. Im so excited that Cartoon Network has unleashed TRANSFORMERS: Robots in Disguise on Saturdays at 6 p.m.(ET/PT). The latest installment is filled with great humor and lots of fun adventure for fans of all ages. Thanks to Cartoon Network for letting me relive my childhood once again. Also for letting my family and I experience it before anyone else.

Recuerdo cada Sábado me levantaba  por la mañana  a ver muñequitos  . Era una tradición para mí y mi hermano . Unos de los muñequitos era Transformers . Me encantó cada segundo . Estoy tan emocionado de que Cartoon Network ha desatado Transformers: Robots in Disguise los Sábados a las 6 pm (ET / PT) . El nuevo programa esta llena de gran humor y mucha diversión y aventura para todas las edades . Gracias a Cartoon Network por dejarme revivir mi niñez, una vez más . También para dejar que mi familia y yo tengamos la experiencia de ver lo antes que nadie.

The new series begins as Bumblebee must step up to be a leader in the years after we left the Autobots in Transformers Prime. Summoned by Optimus Prime to save Earth from a new Decepticon threat, Bumblebee puts his light-hearted mettle to the test after assembling a rogue team of young Autobot action heroes. Bumblebee must balance his job fighting off evil with being equal parts squad leader and coach to a rascally band that needs constant coaxing to learn how to work together. The results are comical when the cool rebel Sideswipe, elite guard cadet Strongarm, bombastic dinobot Grimlock and overly-excited mini-con Fixit must balance keeping the team together with chasing and capturing their new enemies in every episode packed full of action, fun and adventure.

La nueva serie comienza cuando Bumblebee tiene que comensar ser un líder en los años después de salir de los Autobots en Transformers Prime. Convocado por Optimus Prime para salvar  la Tierra de unos nuevos Decepticon. Bumblebee debe equilibrar su trabajo luchando contra el mal con ser partes iguales jefe de la escuadra y el entrenador a una banda de pícaros que necesitan persuasión constante para aprender a trabajar juntos. Los resultados son cómicos cuando el Sideswipe rebelde fresco, elite cadete guardia Strongarm , Grimlock dinobot  que es excesivamente excitado, y mini  Fixit debe equilibrar mantener al equipo junto con perseguir y capturar a sus nuevos enemigos. Cada episodio esta lleno de acción , diversión y aventura .
