Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)

I’ve seen a lot of movies, but I can’t think of one that has left me feeling more conflicted than Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

There are so many things to love about this movie- the action is stellar, the acting is phenomenal and it’s just an all-around fun ride. But there are also some really tough subjects covered in this film that made me question what I was watching at times.

Captain America is a superhero that was first seen in the 1940s. He has had many adventures over time, and this latest movie is one of his most exciting yet.

When Marvel Studios released the first teaser for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, there was a lot of speculation as to what it could mean.

Many people thought that this would be the last installment in the Captain America franchise because he had fulfilled his duty and saved the world from HYDRA.

However, this movie is about Steve Rogers (Captain America) trying to find his place in an ever-changing world.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is an action-packed and thrilling movie that will take you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. You’ll laugh, get angry, feel suspenseful, and cry while watching this film.

It has many great actors including Chris Evans as Captain America, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, and Robert Redford as Alexander Pierce. This is the sequel to the 2011 movie Captain America: The First Avenger.

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014)

The Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is a 2014 American science fiction film directed by Matt Reeves and written by Mark Bomback, Rick Jaffa, and Amanda Silver. It stars Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman

The story takes place 10 years after Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes (2011) where human society has been devastated following a pandemic that killed many people around the world.

The film features an ape leader, Caesar, who has to deal with human survivors who are struggling to find a cure for a plague that wiped out most of humanity.

If you’ve seen the original Planet of the Apes and thought to yourself, “Hey this would make a great summer blockbuster!” then the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is just what you need.

This movie has all that action, suspense, and drama that I was looking for when I went to see it in theaters on opening night.

How To Train Your Dragon 2 (2014)

The sequel to the Academy Award-nominated animated adventure How to Train Your Dragon, this film takes place five years after Hiccup and his dragon Toothless established a peace treaty with humans.

While Astrid, Snotlout, and the rest of the gang are challenging each other in dragon races (the island’s new favorite contact sport), the now inseparable pair journey through the skies, charting unmapped territories and exploring new worlds.

Along the way, they meet new friends, including a female Night Fury named Light Fury – as well as uncover a secret that could threaten Dragons everywhere!

The next installment in the How to Train Your Dragon movie franchise is out and it’s a doozy. The plot follows Hiccup as he leads his people on an epic battle against the dragon-fighting tyrant, Drago Bludvist.

I’m sure you’re all familiar with the first How to Train Your Dragon movie. If not, I’ll fill in any blanks: there was a boy named Hiccup who had an unfortunate run-in with a dragon while he was out fishing one day.

He managed to bring it down and killed it by stabbing his sword through its heart before he could be eaten alive. The film ended on a triumphant note as Hiccup was accepted into the Viking tribe after proving himself worthy of being called “Dragon Slayer”.

After a long day, it’s easy to forget what you did. It’s even easier when those days are so similar that they all blur together. And yet, there is something in every moment of our lives that keeps us going on and on: hope.

Hope for tomorrow, next week, or the future – regardless of how we define it – will always exist because without it there would be nothing left.

The couple are divorced but still lives in the same apartment building in Vienna. They spend one night together talking about how to handle parenting on their own for the first time while sharing some wine.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, a movie that was released in 2004, is a story about Harry’s third year at Hogwarts. He has to contend with Dementors, which are guards who suck the happiness out of people when they get too close.

The wizarding world is also on edge because Sirius Black escaped from Azkaban Prison (a place where dangerous criminals are kept).

The Harry Potter series is an international phenomenon. There are many reasons for this, but one of the main ones is how easy it is to relate to the protagonist.

One reason for this may be because he’s a teenager so all readers can connect with him on that level.

Another possible reason is that we see his journey from being a little boy at home with the Dursleys up until he leaves them behind in order to go off to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Harry Potter has been through a lot in his young life. He’s seen the death of one family member, and he’s also lost another to an almost certain fate. His guardians are all either dead or missing.

This makes him feel alone and scared at times but it never stops him from doing what is right for others. Harry is always fighting against the Dark Arts, which was once led by his father who now resides in Azkaban prison as its most famous inmate – Sirius Black!

Dawn of the Dead (1979)

Dawn of the Dead (1979) is a horror film directed by George A. Romero and starring David Emge, Ken Foree, Scott H. Reiniger, and Gaylen Ross as four people who battle zombies in a shopping mall after they have risen from their graves.

It’s been called a “visceral, ground-breaking, and artistic masterpiece” by the American Film Institute. It has become one of the most popular cult classics in film history. It has spawned four sequels and two remakes.

And it was all started with an idea from George Romero that he couldn’t get out of his head – zombies as a metaphor for our culture’s disconnection from life itself.

In the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse, survivors find refuge in a shopping mall. The undead horde outside is relentless and just as clever as they were when they were living.

They break through barricades, climb ladders and swarm upstairs all in an effort to get at their prey. Our group of heroes is holed up on the second floor with nowhere left to go but down into the basement-the only place that’s been proven safe from zombies so far!

Bride of Frankenstein (1935)

The 1935 movie Bride of Frankenstein is one of the most iconic horror movies ever made.

The Bride of Frankenstein is a 1935 film about the story of Dr. Frankenstein’s monster and his bride.

The original title was to be “Frankenstein Created Woman”, but Universal Studios objected on grounds that it would give away the plot, so the title was changed to “The Bride of Frankenstein”.

The Bride of Frankenstein is not a sequel to the original Frankenstein (1931). It was originally conceived as a remake, but the studio decided it would be more profitable if they made it into a sequel.

In that sense, there are many differences between this film and its predecessor. The story begins with Henry Frankenstein’s monster being destroyed in an experiment at Dr. Pretorius’ laboratory in Marienbad while trying to create another life form for Dr. Pretorius and his assistant Fritz.

A lightning bolt creates electricity which sets off an explosion and causes flames to engulf the lab, destroying everything including all evidence of their work on creating life from dead flesh.
