I was eating dinner yesterday watching SPIKE TV, and caught the trailer for the Avengers. So far, I've only seen the Iron Man films. My sister saw Thor last year, but I didn't on account because a lot of critics said that it was a pretty sub-par movie with no oomph.
I enjoyed Iron Man 1 and 2. I think I'll give the Avengers a shot.
I've been hearing nothing but good things about it... the one quote that stood out on RT is something like "Avengers isn't over-whelming or under-whelming just whelming...". Never heard whelming used just by itself thought it was kinda clever, the internet is smart sometimes.
I'm oddly looking forward to it. I'm normally so anti-comic book filck but these actually range from decent to good. I really, really liked the Ed Norton Hulk flick. I dug Iron Man 2 and Captain America. Didn't really care for Thor. I dig Jeremy Renner (even though his get up in this flick looks like a cheap Halloween costume to me) so I'm actually moderately excited to see this.
I saw an interview over the weekend with the director, Joss Whedon. While I am very firmly in the anti comic book films camp, the interview really made me want to see the movie. He was very funny and had some interesting comment on the directions he took the movie in, why, and such. Very cool.
Well I saw this on the weekend and enjoyed it a lot, but it hasn't really stuck with me since
I really couldn't reliably tell you too many details about it now. A lot of action. A couple of laughs
The team never really fit together
Not a bad film, but nothing you haven't seen before.
I finished seeing this flick with my girlfriend last night and was very impressed. The GF isn't really into the comic-book genre and even she enjoyed it. Well paced, actually funny in many scenes. I'd probably see this again. It's that good.
