For about twenty years he fought to overcome monsters and reach his destination. Similar to contemporary odysseys, his destination is only reached once he learns the lessons along the way. As Odysseus recounts his travels from Troy we are introduced to several monsters. In modern society monsters represent terrifying, horrible creatures, but in Greek mythology these fantastic creatures come in all shapes and sizes (Monsters and Imaginary Beasts). Sometimes they are fabulous beauties and other times they are horrible demons.
It is sort of like a car moving through heavy traffic, speed up, slow down, and then speed up again. It is an immensely skillful sci-fi adventure, combining the usual elements: heroes and villains, special effects and stunts, chases and explosions, romance and oratory. It develops its world with more detail than the first movie was able to afford, gives us our first glimpse of the underground human city of Zion, burrows closer to the heart of the secret of the Matrix, and promotes its hero, Neo, from confused draftee to a Christ figure in training. This particular sequel ends with a cliffhanger so, to find out what happens, you have to watch the third installment, “The Matrix: Revolutions.” Still, it is worth watching, if nothing else, for the great fight scenes, a great car chase, and great special effects. In "Reloaded" we find that Neo has progressed in his powers.
In "The Avengers," he brought the attitude back; where the viewers first fell for Stark, the Smart - Millionaire - Playboy whose superpower was in a special heart-metal sheath. Also, Steve Rogers stars as Captain America, whom was introduced last year as a soldier who was frozen deep in the ocean; only to be revived in a generation out of his time. His retro wholesomeness and good values rub with Stark's ego and stubbornness, making the movie even more humorous. These two are assembled by Nick Fury, played by Samuel L. Jackson, and the agency, known as “S.H.I.E.L.D.”, when an interplanetary god named Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston, arrives on Earth and wreaks havoc on the planet. Loki is greeted by his sibling, Thor, from the planet Asgard.
Movies like, "Terminator 2", "Deep Impact", "2012" or one of my favorites, "Armageddon". In each movie, the world is going to, or is coming to an end in one way or another. In each movie as well, it seems like there is always an American hero waiting in the wings to save the day and or mankind. This is just another example of Americans supporting the "Chosen Nation" myth. In the movie "Armageddon", a huge asteroid was on its way to destroy the Earth and everyone that lived on it until an American telescope saw it in space and an American oil driller saved the day!
Other scientists say that the repositioning of the world’s landmasses was disastrous for dinosaurs. As continents heaved upward, ocean currents were redirected and global sea levels fell. The Interior Seaway, which once divided North America in half, simply drained away as the Colorado Plateau rose thousands of feet. Though all these theories are well supported and make a lot of since, I think the continental drift theory is the better of them. First, an asteroid explosion so big to wipe out all the dinosaurs most likely would have made a bigger impact on the Earth.

This lights a match on a world set to explode with the repercussive force of a hand grenade. The data on that phone uncovers a bone chilling plot set to take place on American Soil. With the count down begun the seals take off, jet setting to terrorist hot spots all around the world, searching for a shipment of suicide vests said to be entering America across the Mexican border. The seals link up with the Mexican task force and hit a cartel controlled milk factory sitting on top of a tunnel network, leading right into the heart of America. This was one last mission in a time where the only easy day was yesterday.
The directors have kept in mind that what makes a successful villain is that they look the part, be insanely brilliant, and push the protagonist to the edge. The first and most obvious characteristic that makes an amazing movie villain is their appearance. When is the last time there was a movie villain that look like a normal human that left a lasting impact on cinema? The most iconic villains are either cripplingly disfigured or hidden behind a mask or the shadows, and the 'Big 3' of horror villains, Freddy, Jason, and Michael Myers, personify this perfectly. In fact, in a recent survey when asked what was most frightening, surveyors were split 50/50 between a facial deformity and a man in a mask.
