The Avengers: Movie Review


The Avengers
By: Lakwatsera Lovers

First we would like to thank Zed for the tickets we won on their fan page. The long wait is over as The Avengers finally rocked the big screen. The idea is ambitious putting a lot of big stars and superheroes in one movie.It is a big gamble but making this possible is like a dream come true to all comic book lovers, kids and movie addicts. 

With the world being threatened by war plotted by the evil brother of Thor, Loki. Nick Fury (Samuel Jackson) brings together a group of superheroes who can help to save the world in total annihilation. The team consists of super soldier Steve Rogers also known as Captain America (Chris Evans) ,the playboy chick magnet billionaire Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), The demi-god of thunder Thor (Chris Hemsworth), The brilliant scientist Dr. Bruce Banner/Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), the sharpshooter Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and the sexy assassin Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson). And together they are called the Avengers. 


A lot of questions was lurking in my mind before watching this movie like who will emerge as the lead superhero as most of them have been solo leads in their own film? Will they have enough screen time and enjoy the battles with all of them with only one main enemy?  Well the answer is yes, putting all of them is one of a kind non stop action superhero movie. Imagine seven comic book heroes all together fighting to save the world was insane and freaking awesome. 


The good thing about this is before they teamed up they also had altercations with each other resulting to hero vs hero battle scenes that you'll enjoy. There are also some hilarious moments that made us laugh hard inside the cinema so you better watch it because were not giving out some spoilers. All of the characters were significant as all of them played a big role and performed brilliantly. Really well made film as you cannot ask for more aside from a sequel. Just one tip stay in your seats after the movie and wait for the post credit scene. It's funny how kids reacted after the movie outside the cinema posing like their favorite avenger making me reminisce my childhood days.   


Overall The Avengers is a must watch movie as it really brought out the best, squeezing so much action, fun and excitement in a two and a half hour running time. No bathroom breaks and no cellular phones as every second counts in this film.

Avengers Assemble!

 Lakwatsera Lovers rates it a perfect 10 out of 10 stars. 

Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Samuel Jackson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scartlett Johannson and Tom Hiddleston

Rock legend Pepe Smith, Letter Day Story collaborate on “Salamat"



Rock legend Pepe Smith, Letter Day Story collaborate on “Salamat"

PINOY ROCK ANTHEM “Salamat”, one of the most unforgettable hits of legendary OPM band The Dawn, gets a charged-up tribute with its latest revival by the up-and-coming rock idols of Letter Day Story, which also features Pinoy rock icon Pepe Smith. The official music video is now on YouTube.

Letter Day Story members were naturally excited over the prospect of working with Smith for the recording of “Salamat”. All of them, Dex Yu (guitars and lead vocals), NotNot Vinzons (guitars), Oli Agustin (bass and vocals) and Ej Arabit (drums), said they felt honored and thrilled.

  "RECORDING 'SALAMAT' helped us connect with our OPM roots.  We realized that without artists like Pepe Smith and bands like The Dawn, Pinoys would not be rocking today," says  Letter Day Story bassist Oli Agustin. The music video was shot in NUVALI, an Avida Land property in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.

Drummer EJ Arabit of Letter Day Story recalls being star-struck by the thought of recording "Salamat" with Pepe Smith. "We were glad that he didn't have any star complex. Parang jamming lang talaga," he says. The music video was shot in NUVALI, an Avida Land property in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.


Letter Day Story guitarist and vocalist Dex Yu considers it a high point in his unfolding musical career to be able to record and shoot a music video for "Salamat", a cover/revival recording by the band with Pinoy rock veteran Pepe Smith.

 
GUITARIST NOTNOT VINZONS of Letter Day Story hams it up for the camera with his love/thank you note. Vinzons and the rest of Letter Day story shot their music video for "Salamat" in NUVALI, an Avida Land property in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.


Siyempre, Pepe Smith na yan eh. Kung wala siya at ang ibang members ng Juan dela Cruz Band, wala sigurong Pinoy Rock ngayon. Wala rin kami,” said Dex.

Their version of “Salamat” retains the very relevant and very Pinoy message of the original but also creates a more contemporary sound that brings the OPM classic to a new generation of fans. The music video was shot in select areas in NUVALI, a sustainable and environment-friendly development by Ayala Land in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.

The positive response of younger fans to the revival of “Salamat” and its music video shows that there is a hunger and a need for OPM. We are happy about this because supporting OPM is one of our advocacies as a company,” said Tess Tatco, Avida Marketing Head. Property developer Avida Land helped produce the “Tunog Natin” album to revive interest and appreciation for OPM among a new generation of Filipino music lovers.

Salamat” as recorded by Letter Day Story and Pepe Smith is one of the tracks in the compilation album, “Tunog Natin: Songs From Home” that features an all-OPM selection of ten classic and new Filipino songs.

THANKSGIVING is a recurring theme in the music video of  "Salamat", a cover/revival recording by the band Letter Day Story with Pinoy rock veteran Pepe Smith. This scene shows a tree that's festooned with various thank you notes. The music video was shot in NUVALI, an Avida Land property in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.

PINOY ROCK ICON PEPE SMITH and Letter Day Story frontman Dex Yu rocked the house at the Red Letter Day event in Trinoma. Red Letter Day is an Avida campaign that promotes the spirit of gratitude among Filipinos, allowing them to say 'Thank You' to their loved ones in creative ways. 



 
A simple song can express thanks, love, heartache and joy. OPM will always be relevant because it becomes our common language—something that binds us together. Through Filipino music, we are able to communicate with one another despite our differences, and find a common identity,” she said.


Tunog Natin: Song’s From Home” is a great showcase of Filipino musicianship. Artists who took part in the album include OPM legends Joey “Pepe” Smith; Jim Paredes; Medwin Marfil of True Faith and Gloc-9; as well as pop divas Faith Cuneta and Arnee Hidalgo. OPM’s most promising young acts also joined the album, including Sheng Belmonte; Princess Velasco; Letter Day Story; boyband 1:43; Myrus; Tanya Markova; Kiss Jane and Tricia Garcia. 1990s alternative rock icons Mcoy Fundales and Barbie Almalbis complete the line-up.

Avida breaks ground in North Point

Avida breaks ground in North Point

Avida Village North Point is surely an ideal place to build a dream home. Soon, this dream will take shape as Avida Land officially held its second groundbreaking ceremony in this 18-hectare development last March 17, 2012, signalling the start of the second phase of the site development. 

Located inside North Point, the only fully integrated master planned community in Negros, the project is set to be a place for a lifetime of beautiful memories for its future residents. After the project’s official launch and groundbreaking for the first phase of houses last year, Avida once again broke grounds on site, this time to commence the construction of the amenity area starting with the clubhouse. 

 “We are truly excited to finally start construction of the clubhouse, because it is something that has always been a vital part of a community as it serves a venue for gatherings and celebrations, be it with friends, relatives or neighbours,” said Pol Tanco, Avida’s Project Strategic Management Group Head of Avida Land for VisMin. With this amenity, residents will get to enjoy the same quality of living experience that homeowners already living in Avida communities across the country are enjoying. “And since Avida Village North Point is a low density community, which assures that there will always be time and room for every resident to enjoy these amenities year round,” he added.

The clubhouse is scheduled for completion by November 2012, while the basketball court will be ready by the second quarter of the year.

Avida officers led the groundbreaking ceremony.

Family-friendly amenities

The amenities of Avida Village North Point is the hub of community life, future residents can look forward to taking a dip in the pool; celebrating a party or a personal milestone in the clubhouse, which is equipped with a function hall. There’s also a mini football field for enthusiasts who wish to play a game and exercise.

Children, on the other hand, can frolic in the kiddie pool or spend fun-filled hours in the play area. For a quiet, meditative time, homeowners can stroll on the wide open spaces or wander in the garden teeming with trees and plants.

These features notwithstanding, Avida has made sure that prospective homeowners will be able to afford and acquire a home through a wide-range of flexible payment terms and a streamlined processing and approval. They can choose from four modern, classy and practically-designed model houses. These have a starting price of P1.7M and will surely fit would-be homeowner’s needs and budgets.

  A rendition of the soon-to-rise clubhouse.
 
Accessible and well-planned

Avida makes it a point to develop their projects in close proximity to commercial hubs and vital areas such as schools, hospitals and churches. Ayala Land’s first mall in Western Visayas, which is the North Point Community Mall, is set to open in the fourth quarter of 2012 and is just five minutes away. This means convenience, accessibility and less expense on the part of future homeowners.

Known for their zest for life and sociable nature, Negros will find delight in Avida Village North Point’s emphasis on smartly planned, well designed amenities and houses. Backed by Ayala Land, a well respected and established name in real estate industry, the project prioritizes the safety and comfort of its residents—from planning to construction to turn-over. And just like in other Ayala developments, Avida Village North Point will be managed by the Ayala Property Management Corp.

Accessibility, quality materials, emphasis on safety, modern-day amenities and affordability all in one integrated community: these are the things that Avida Village North Point offers future residents so they can have peace of mind while living an idyllic life in a secure, safe and beautiful community.
