The only thing I'd agree with is the backwards headbutt, unless they were going for a ponytail whip thing. Other than that I though it was cool!

Uh... no. You know those parodies where someone slaps someone else, and you can tell that the actors hand was nowhere close to the others face? Yeah, that's what we see here. 'ScarJo' headbutt impacts are about 3 ft away from the other actors. Then we come to the CG chair flip.

This is a prime example of my problem with casting 'ScarJo'. She doesn't look like she can hurt a fly. But hey - we see some boob jiggle in the fight, and that is supposed to make it a awesome.

Is this really what passes for a good fight with you guys? Really?
Well, she has bigger and more jiggly boobs in the comic books , and I believe "comic books" is the key phrase here.

If we were looking for a realistic fight the whole movie would be utter bullshit.

For a comic book super spy, Scarjo does a fine job representing and this fight was great.

And yes, Coulson taking it in stride is one of the things that make him awesome.

It would have been good if it was at all believable. Her pathetic head but to the guy behind her was the first sign that this scene would suck.

Actually, no it wasn't. This scene sucked because it is so badly cliche.


You obviously have no interest in this movie and only want to take every possible opportunity to knock it down. Why are you here?

^That's not bad, actually considering that the canon character goes from grey to green and back to grey within a few issues.

I really enjoyed the clip. And I agree, Coulson's reaction was great. You can tell he's just patiently waiting for her to finish so he can tell her what's going on.

Maybe overkill, but I'd have loved it, if he'd checked his watch and started humming 'The Girl from Ipanema'.

It looked like the scene went on after the clip ended, so there could be more Coulson in it.

Love the fight clip, although when she broke the chair I half-expected her to stake one of the guys with a broken chair leg.

It's thanks to Whedon that I have reasonable hope that most of the time the characters won't be entirely stupid when they open their mouths.

about the scene itself, it seems that even before any dialogue happens - as soon as we see the wide shot of her in the chair - we know exactly what is going to happen in the scene. There was a time when this material (a woman who's tied in a chair but can kick ass and get free herself without worry) might have been surprising and fresh, but not here.

As for why I am here.. because the summer film season has big sfx, and science fiction films that should be fun and engaging.. but this summer in particular, there is not one single fresh idea at all. Iron Man 2 was just a commercial for this film, and this film can only collapse under the weight of all the stars and all the cliches.

I'm actually pretty stoked to see Hulk...I happen to think he looks awesome from what we've seen so far.

he looks like a cg version of the comic hulk crayoned over the footage. Certainly nothing remarkable here.

Did Joss Whedon kill your dog, or something? Why are you determined to piss on every single thing about this movie that you can find? If you don't want to see it, then just leave the thread alone. There's no need to make the rest of us miserable.

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

^ Well said and I whole heartedly agree. It's all well and good about disagreeing and not liking something, but to carry it on all this time? It'd also be another thing if someone changed their mind as well...but that isn't the case at all. By now we all get Flying Spaghetti Monster's point. He isn't a Joss fan and doesn't like the approach to this movie. Point made. .
