Kick-ass and a bunch of other movies...

...were viewed by moi.

Let's start off with the main highlight:

Kick-ASS. Doesn't the title speak for itself?
Okay, lets start off. Kick-ass is awesome. Kick-ass is funny. Kick-ass is kick ass!
What originally was a comic not many heard about (or at least I didn't) was re-created into an epic movie directed by Matthew Vaughn, who is a British director - he has made us guys proud.

The story is about Dave (Aaron Johnson), who also turns out to be British, and how he's obsessed with comic books. He's unpopular in college and falls under the "geeks" faction. He has two mates who also are into comics. The one thing he wonders is why superheroes exist in fiction but not in reality. You don't require powers just like Batman - the thing is Bruce Wayne is fuckin' rich, Dave is just a middle-class guy. It finally becomes a hero, rather stupidly, known as Kick-ass. He goes around fightin' crime and on his first experience gets shanked hard by some thugs. He luckily survives but he had to get his dad to not know about his double identity - and ends up naked at hospital. From there onwards, people spread rumours about him being gay. However, he is in love with Katie (Lyndsy Fonseca), who still thinks Dave is gay. They become friends since Katie feels sorry for Dave due to his sexuality. Meanwhile, Damon Macready (Nicolas Cage) aka Big Daddy, is training his daughter to become a superhero herself. His daughter is Mindy aka Hit-Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz), who I absolutely love due to her swag. She isn't the average girl who's into ponies and barbie dolls - she's the sort of person who utters a naughty word in every sentence and goes around carrying a knife.
