Avengers: Age of Ultron Review (Spoilers)

Friday May 1st

My Boyfriend Tom and I saw the new Avengers movie. The Avenger: Age of Ultron.

I would give the movie a B+. It was full of action, and I had a few good laughs. The story-line kept me on my toes. I don’t think I ever turn my head away.

I liked Vision. I felt like Ultron sounded a lot like Tony Stark. I like how you learned a bit more of the avengers. It tells more of their stories. It made them feel more human. I feel for Natasha.

******Spoiler Warning**************

It would have been an A review but there was a piece missing.

I felt that there was a hole in the story when Thor when away. I felt the director’s decision to take out Loki’s scene was wrong. I think it needed that piece for the audience to see that it was just a dream.

There was also no clip at the very end of the credits and I think it was stupid, because Marvel has been doing that for most of their movies now. Why stop?

After we got out of the movie the theater was promoting Comic Book Day. They had actor playing the different heroes. . . It had Tom’s day when he got to take his picture taken with Thor and Loki.

My Review for the short story: “Killing Matt Cooper”

Title: “Killing Matt Cooper”
By John Cassian

It’s a suspenseful story of love vs. lust. It’s about a man trying to find a loving understanding: hoping to have someone accept who he is, who he really is. However after being denied, it creates a monster within his own darkness.  

I believe this story demonstrated that we all have a dark side. I think some just express in physical ways. It just shows us what humans are really capable of doing.

The story kept me on the edge. I normally don’t like open ending, but I believed it ended open enough to allow me to use my imagination.

Extra notes: This story is rated X and has extreme sexual material and extreme violence.  There is some foul language. However the rating is more adult situations. This is not for the sensitive reader.

I give this story 3 ½ pages. . . The story kept me on my toes.

New Story Review Corner

I had an idea. . . I was thinking of making a small review corner on my writing blog. I have been reading the book The Marshall Plan for Novel Writing and it says to read my genre. However I have learned I write in several genres: Paranormal; Occult; Vampire; thriller; drama; and mostly Horror. My favorite authors are Anne Rice and Stephen King.

What I was thinking was to read short stories or pieces of novels and give them reviews on my blog. I thought that if maybe I review a few others, then others would see and they could review as well. When I ask for feedback, I want to know if my characters are likable, and relatable. I want to know if my story is actually interesting. As a story-teller and writer, I basically want to know am I really bringing written art to the world or am I just wasting time? I want to know if there are others who want to read my work.

 

Fellow Writers. . . what I need for a review

  1. Title
  2. Pen name (Name you are publishing with)
  3. A link to the title, e-mail, or place where others can get your work.
  4. Webpages or other way that other people can ask questions about your work

 

  • I want no more than 50 computer pages 8×11.  No more than 25,000 words
    (If it part of a novel, then send me up 50 pages of most interesting part.)
  • You can add a picture. (No more than what wordpress allows, my blog is on word press)

 

This is how I plan to write my review.

  1. Title and author
  2. I want to write as little as one to two or as much as four to five sentences of summary.
  3. Then I will write some about the character/dialogue.
  4. Then I will write something about the storyline.
  5. Extra notes: if it made me emotional or I was able to relate. If it has adult material I would mention it here.
  6. Rating of 1to 5 pages. (5 pages is like 5 stars or a grade of an A.)
  7. Link to actual story.
