My thoughts on The Avengers movie from last week. Saw it twice on the same day. Hoping to watch it for the third time on the weekend.

SPOILERS: Who The Hell Was That Guy At The End Of THE AVENGERS Anyway?
A great write up on the character.

I don't see the point of watching a movie twice in the same day. I mean you've seen it before and you know whats going to happen. Granted that you'll catch some stuff you haven't noticed before like jokes or plot points but why not wait till the DVD/Blu-ray is out to see it a second time? It will be more refreshing and you wont be sick of it by that point. Also if you see it multiple times in the cinema it costs more money when you can watch it at home for no extra cost on re-watches.

EDIT: I understand that you would have to do that if you were going to do a review on it.

God I wish I stayed after the credits, but I had no idea that there was anything else! frown

I love the theatre experience and if I really enjoyed the movie I don't mind paying for it a second time to enjoy it again. I usually wait few days before I watch it again, but with Avengers I couldn't wait to see it again. Saw it first day first show in the morning with a big group of friends, then late night went with another friend to see it again.

Besides, The Avengers is one of those rare movies where the whole theatre is gonna enjoy the movie with huge cheers, laughs and applause. It's that communal experience that I enjoy for certain movies. No state of the art home theatre system can match that.

And it will be few months before Avengers hits Blu-ray/DVD, I didn't want to wait that long to see it again.

You get more than just the movie when you visit the cinema. You also get the presentation environment, which is likely several scales above what you have when you watch a DVD at home.

Obvious trolling is obvious.

Short version: Whedon knocked it out of the park.

Thank you.

On an unrelated note, when is the wedding planned for between you and Mr. Whedon?

I prefer watching it at home because sitting on a uncomfortable seat for 2 hours and getting leg cramp does not help me enjoy the movie. The only good things about the cinema experience is the popcorn and the big screen (but it's not as good when your sitting at an angle straining your neck).

Usually there are comfortable push back seats and plenty of leg room at most multiplex theatres. Yes, the large screen and enhanced sound is the real advantage of a theatre.

I enjoy popcorn, but it's ridiculously overpriced at theatres. Of course theatres have been selling them at those high prices for years, so that they can profit and sustain their business. During certain movies, I find eating popcorn (or any other food in the theatre for that matter) a major distraction, especially those munching loudly close by.

I actively avoid eating at the cinemas. I eat outside before or after the movie. I go to the theatre for the movie experience, to enjoy food I will choose a restaurant. Yeah I know I am pretty weird and too serious about all this.

You must get there about five minutes before the movie starts. Getting there early guarantees the best seats!!!! Take some buddies and then ditch 'em ten before to go piss, then get back in time, no seat lost if that's what concerns you. Always sit in the middle towards the top. No neck craning in any direction. I will have to wait to review Avengers myself until next weekend AND IT WILL BE SO HARD TO WAIT THAT LONG.

That's a problem for me in Aberdeen as we're supposed to sit where the cinema people want us to sit.

I really think The Avengers should have it's own thread.

I cannot explain how awesome this film was. I could talk about it all day long...

Don't worry, there's plenty of time to see it!

My thoughts:


I'm VERY excited to see Thor 2 and I'm sure there will be another Avengers. Thor 2 starts filming this summer in London. I hope they have a Los Angeles unit, cause I would LOVE to be an extra in that. It would be a dream! Hopefully my agency will post a casting call for it.

Oh wow. Somehow, the movie managed to exceed my already-high expectations. I seriously wasn't expecting it to be funny or anything. Probably the best movie I've seen in quite a while.

Thor had the best introduction to the film. It was just wonderful. And I think Loki is hot. I'm a girl I'm allowed to have these thoughts.


It seriously was a geek-gasm film. I loved it, I'm going again tomorrow.

Oh no doubt UL, that was a very hard movie to make and Joss Whedon did it flawlessly. And what I love, it was fucking funny. The Hulk + Loki = best scene in the entire movie (and that's hard to say since the movie was damn good).

I think I'll seriously get it on Blu-Ray when I can (and that's something I hardly ever do) because it was that good.

One very mild complaint though:

The only gripe I had is that we were originally gonna see it in 2D but that show was sold out so we went to the next showing that was in 3D. The 3D isn't bad but it's completely pointless and half the time I took off my glasses and could watch it just fine. I'm not shilling out another 4 dollars to see a movie that wasn't made for 3D again. I hate 3D it offers nothing.

My thoughts:




Also, strictly speaking, Thor would be able to kill Tony Stark if it took his fancy, suit or not. Guy once blew up a planet by punching it. He's ridiculously strong, but he holds himself back a little with mortals.

Hulk is probably the best match for Thor, in terms of raw strength.

I agree with your opinion on both Thor's entrance and Loki in general.

Marvel's The Avengers (2012) - Box Office Mojo

Domestic weekend estimate is $200 million. Could be more or less when the weekend is actually over.

International is already at $441 million. Worldwide total will be $641 million.

This movie deserves it all.

Nothing too special about it, my guessing is they would have frozen to death long before the wolves got them, but movie magic seems to have drawn it out.

@Beanoz: GAY. If us 'Mericans had to be seated, we'd throw a fit. Naturally. BEcause we're entitled to fight over the best rows. big grin

@Nixorbo: Yes we do. Yes we do. It's been ingrained into my very being to be there at least a half hour early. That way I can annoy patrons with my excitable chit-chat.

Thor (2011)

Just saw this last. Tonight I'll watch Captain America. Anyways, THOR. Not quite as many dutch angles as I was guessing would be used since someone around here mentioned a gratuitous use (and I've forgotten who that was and I'm too lazy to bother looking). Good movie, I felt I could've used a bit more back story for Thor/ Loki but my GOD Tom played his role like a champ. It helped that Thor was hot. That masked the niggles I had with this movie once it was over. I'd watch it again (as opposed to Green Lantern, which I could probably never see again and be happy).

Thor seemed so dumbed down for this movie and it kinda annoyed me. When I saw Thor(the film) I felt like, Why does he really need any of the other Avengers? He's CRAZY powerful, he's essentially a god! It seemed a little odd that he was having trouble against a man in an Iron suit. But I guess you're right, he makes adjustments when he's on earth. But you'd think when all the craziness happens and they're in a battle he would step it up a bit.

Also, Thor is crazy hot flirt And Captain America is growing on me a bit too. smile He's so cute and wholesome and simple, not like the others.

Also, I can't believe you think Loki is hot! lol. Clearly Thor is the better looking brother. But hey, I guess we all have different tastes.
I second the fact that this was a nerdgasm film, and I can't wait to see it again!

Blasphemy that you don't think Loki is hot! BLASPHEMY. Thor may be the buff guy, but he's totally a ladies' man. Loki's quiet, reserved, and when he's not out destroying things I'm sure he could be quite nice. Let's also not forget how he speaks. love I do agree with you about Captain America. He's the kinda guy you'd actually want a relationship with as opposed to a wild fling. Now why aren't real guys like this in America anymore.... Right, because it's more fun for guys to be like Stark. laff

As for Thor's apparent lack of skills on Earth... What if like the Earth affected his powers? Kinda like a mild Kryptonite or something? Who really knows? They could give that excuse if they felt like it. Not that I really care how stupid Thor's character may be in terms of realism so long as I get to see sexy guys on the screen for a few hours. flirt

Ok ladies let's just agree, we would probably have sex with all of the Avengers, even Bruce Banner (but he would be last). We are all right about every thing. Captain America is the sensitive one, Ironman is the ladies man, Loki has the voice of a Shakespearean god, Thor is nice and buff, and Bruce Banner is sympathetic. Oh and Sam Jackson is you know a badass mofo.

the avengers was awesome. It's defintely gonna be in my top 5 films.

My favorite moment was getting to see the new Acura NSX. smile They stopped making them in the late 90's and they're re-releasing it, and it's their super car. I'm very excited about it.

seeing Pepper potts in those daisy dukes was also another good moment.

I agree to those terms.

Captain America

What the fuck did I even watch? I didn't really like this movie! I was shocked! Maybe with another watch I'd be less annoyed... No, wait, some things were too stupid for me to believe in, like HTF Captain America didn't age after 70 years of being frozen or whatever. I guess if you fill in some BS story of how he was cryogenically frozen. Some fight scenes were pretty bad. Some punches didn't "land" in a convincing manner. I disliked the villain, because he felt too cartoonish and that's coming from someone who believes in a LOT of cartoonish villains as being realistic/ believable. That being all said, the film could've been as short as Thor, and gotten away with it. I mean, I can't call it the worst Marvel film of all time but it's not a favorite. But then I'm not a huge Captain America fan either, so that probably doesn't help. The futuristic bits that revolved around the sacred blue cube of destruction felt so... out of place in the 1940s setting to me. That alone was probably what made this movie feel a bit... wrong. Scrap that, scrap the villain and try a different one and I think the film would be ten times stronger.

Sorry guys, 60/100. I don't know if I could sit through it again. I arguably disliked it more than I did Green Lantern, and that film was pretty abysmal at times.

Steve was superhuman because of the Super Soldier Serum, that combined with being cryogenically frozen reduced his aging considerably.

Remember the following scene when Steve is drinking.

Steve Rogers: Dr. Erskine said that the serum wouldn't just effect my muscles, it would effect my cells. Create a protective system of regeneration and healing. Which means um...I can't get drunk. Did you know that?
Peggy Carter: Your metabolism burns four times faster than the average person. He thought it could be one of the side effects.
