Re: AVENGERS - movie Discussion, News, Interviews, Pics till release 2

My point is that the scene didn't even need to play out. As soon as we saw her in the chair surrounded by bad guys, we already exatly what would happen, how it would happen, and we already know, before the action takes place, that we are going to just accept that she ill take them out despite the fact ScarJo probably couldnt bench press forty-five pounds.

But that's only part of the point.I'm not going to worship the alter of Nolan, but, with Batman Begins he took material that was indeed familiar and at least made it seem fresh, depsuite the fact that it actually wasn't.

But Avengers looks like a paper thin money grab, with no subtlety or craftsmanship. Hey that can be ok, too. I'm a fan of the first Transformers film. But that was quite a few years ago, even the sense of fun that that film brought to the table has worn thin in films that have tried to replicate it in the intervening years.

I am just offering an opposite point of view. This film should be marginally entertaining. Just accept the fact that there's no story, no drama, nothing in here that would turn a good science fiction film into a great one. It's summertime, and to the extent that I wnat to have fun, I'll enjoy it. I don't know, I just find it pointless to get all worked up about it. Same with TDKR. Looks like it will be just as overcooked as the last film.
No more adventures! I'm not going that way!
