The Avengers 2012 Movie Quotes

Rhalph and I were finally able to watch The Avengers in 3D! Thanks to him for securing tickets at IMAX in SM Southmall. If you’re going to watch The Avengers, I am telling you that the IMAX 3D experience is totally worth it! The cinematography, digital effects, and even the musical scoring are superb!

With Thor and Captain America

With Thor and Captain America

I enjoyed the movie even though I have not watched all the Marvel films and read a single Marvel comic book. Nevertheless, I appreciate the movie… and indeed, we have gone a long way as compared to the movies in the 1980s.

With Hawkeye and The Incredible Hulk

With Hawkeye and The Incredible Hulk

Here are some of the very memorable movie quotes:

Loki: [Hulk and Loki fighting. Everything stops.] I am a God! I am not going to be bullied by a…
[Hulk grabs him by the legs and throws him around.] *blag*blag*blag*blag*

The Hulk: Puny god!

Thor: He’s my brother.
Natasha Romanoff: He killed 80 people in 2 days.
Thor: … He’s adopted.

Steve Rogers: Stark, we need a plan of attack!
Tony Stark: I have a plan: ATTACK!

Loki: Ah, the super soldier of the great war.
Steve Rogers: Trust me, it wasn’t that great.
Loki: Mine will be.
[Attacks Captain America]

Tony Stark: When they come, and they WILL come, they’ll come for you.
Loki: I have an army.
Tony Stark: We have a Hulk.
Loki: I thought the beast had wandered off…

Tony Stark: Let’s do a headcount: Your brother, the demigod; a super-soldier, a living legend who actually lives up to the legend; a man with breathtaking anger management issues; a couple of master assassins; and you’ve managed to piss off every single one of us.
Loki: That was the plan.
Tony Stark: Not a great plan.

Natasha Romanoff: [on the phone, tied to a chair] Give me a minute…
[starts beating up people]

Loki: What have I to fear?
Tony Stark: The Avengers. It’s what we call ourselves. Earth’s mightiest heroes, that type of thing.
Loki: Yeah, I’ve met them.
Tony Stark: [chuckles] Okay, we’re sure to get traction on that one…

Steve Rogers: Falling in line’s not really my style.
Steve Rogers: You’re all about style, aren’t you?
Thor: You people are so petty, and tiny.

Tony Stark: He was an idiot!
Steve Rogers: He was doing his job!
Tony Stark: For taking Loki alone, he was out of his league!
Steve Rogers: Is this the first time you’ve lost a soldier?
Tony Stark: We are not soldiers! I am not marching in Fury’s fight!
Steve Rogers: Neither am I! He’s got the same blood on his hands as Loki. Right now we’ve got to put that aside and get this done.

Natasha Romanoff: Doctor, we need you to come in.
Bruce Banner: What if I… say no?
[soldiers surround Banner’s cabin]
Natasha Romanoff: I’ll persuade you.

Nick Fury: It’s called the Avengers Initiative.
Tony Stark: I thought I didn’t qualify. I was considered, what was it… volatile, self-centred, and I don’t play well with others.

[at San Diego Comic-Convention]
Nick Fury: [narrating] And there came a day, a day unlike any other… when Earth’s mightiest heroes found themselves united against a common threat… to fight the foes no single superhero could withstand… on that day, The Avengers were born.

Tony Stark: Dr. Banner, your work is unparalleled. And I’m a huge fan of the way you lose control and turn into an enormous green rage monster.
Bruce Banner: Thanks.

Steve Rogers: Hulk? Smash!

And my favorite of all the lines in the movie…

Tony Stark: No offense, but I don’t play well with others.
Steve Rogers: Big man, in a suit of armour… take that away, what are you?
Tony Stark: Uh… genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist…
[Thor laughs]

Can’t wait to watch sequel of this great movie! 🙂 Did you enjoy The Avengers as well? 🙂

Tuna Tomato Pesto Pasta

It's Time to Cook with Jean Monique!

It's Time to Cook with Jean Monique!

This is the second recipe that I tried last night. I only have less than an hour to prepare so here’s a quick and simple pasta recipe that is really delicious. If you love pesto and tomato sauce, then this one is perfect for you.

Tuna Tomato Pesto Pasta

Tuna Tomato Pesto Pasta

*Makes 8 servings

*10 minutes preparation time

*30 minutes cooking time (includes cooking of pasta)

Ingredients:

  • 1 pack 450 g spaghetti noodles
  • 500 g Italian-style spaghetti sauce
  • 1 pouch 150 g tomato paste
  • 1 pack McCormick Pesto Mix
  • 1 cup grated cheese
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large can corned tuna

Instructions:

  1. Cook pasta according to package instructions.
  2. Prepare the sauce while waiting for the pasta to be ready. Combine spaghetti sauce, tomato paste, and pesto powder mix in a saucepan. 
  3. Saute corned tuna in 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add to pesto tomato spaghetti sauce mixture. Simmer while stirring occasionally.
  4. Toss together the cooked pasta with the spaghetti sauce mixture. Top with cheese before serving.
Here are some substitutions that you can make:
  • You can use 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained and sliced, instead of tomato paste.
  • You can make your own homemade pesto sauce. Here’s what you’ll need:
    • 1/3 cup pine nuts
    • 2 cups or 40 grams fresh basil leaves
    • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • 6 cloves garlic, crushed
    • 1/2 teaspoon iodized fine salt (or 1/2 tablespoon iodized rock salt)
    • 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese
  • Here’s how to prepare the pesto sauce: Grind pine nuts using a food processor or blender. Add basil, olive oil, garlic, salt, and Parmesan cheese. Process until mixture becomes pasty. (If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a mortar and pestle to mix all these.)

That’s it! So easy to prepare, right? 🙂 I assure you that even kids will love this! I hope you’ll enjoy making this dish as much as I did.

Let me know how it goes when you try this recipe. Til next time!

Fresh Mushroom and Corn Soup

It's Time to Cook with Jean Monique!

It's Time to Cook with Jean Monique!

I tried 2 new recipes last night. The first one is fresh mushroom and corn soup, and the other one is tomato pesto pasta. It took me an hour to prepare both dishes. But it was all worth it in the end when I saw how my family loved what I served for dinner. 🙂

Just want to share a healthy soup recipe for you to try.

Fresh Mushroom and Corn Soup

Fresh Mushroom and Corn Soup

This dish is so light and healthy yet satisfying and flavorful.

*makes 8 servings

*5 minutes preparation time

*20 minutes cooking time (including heating broth to simmer)

Ingredients:

  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • 1 pack fresh oyster mushroom
  • 1 can young corn sliced into small pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. In a stockpot, dissolve 4 Knorr chicken cubes in 8 cups of boiling water. Stir continuously.
  2. In a pan, saute mushroom and corn in olive oil until cooked.
  3. Add cooked mushroom and corn to the broth. Simmer for 2 more minutes.
  4. Season with salt and pepper. Add butter. Serve while hot.

So easy and so healthy, right? You can substitute fresh young corn instead of canned. You can also use other types of mushrooms such as champignon and Shitake. I think this will also taste good if you use Shitake mushroom together with beef broth. You can also add carrots for a more colorul approach.

Let me know when you have tried this recipe or if you’ve made variations. Happy eating!

xoxo,
