With Banner/ The Hulk how self contained is the appearance?

One person has given it an 'F'?

Boy, do I feel really sorry for that person.

I had figured that making the poll public might curve thy "for spite, fly by 'F' voter".

I mean hell, even the 2 "negative" reviews at RT aren't really that bad in context.

Maybe Xavier-Stora still felt it looked cheap, like he did two years ago. *shrug*

I refuse to believe that it'll be anything other than immensely entertaining and fun.

The EW article was a riot to read, BTW. Very funny and very few spoilers.

Just don't make him angry

I believe a random episode of the '70 show is all that you need!

I can't say I'm familiar with the poster. He thought other Marvel films looked cheap? Two years ago the film was only in preproduction. The other thread lasted 22 months and covers that whole development span. Did he think spy photos and the such made the in development film look cheap? I don't recall his posts in the thread off hand.

Maybe he can answer. An 'F' grade just seems contrary.

For perspective I'm no big fan of Avatar but I'd never grade it an F.

No clue. I just had a quick look over his posting history and noticed those remarks in the old thread.

Ah, I see what you mean. He was saying comments about "cheap" as recently as first of April. That's just a disconnect.

Re: AVENGERS: Grade, Reviews, Discuss, DVD & Sequel **SPOILERS**

I'm not reading the spoilers cause I want to save myself something for the initial viewing. Just knowing they exist means you guys have clearly latched onto several things that I can't wait to see next week!!

So, since it's mid-week release how has it fared? I'm assuming these numbers include any Tuesday midnight figures as well.
Walt Disney Pictures and Marvel Studios have provided us with estimates of the overseas box office for Marvel's The Avengers so far. The Joss Whedon action adventure has earned an estimated $73.1 million in its first Wednesday through Friday of overseas release from 41 territories...
Pretty impressive, 3 days, 41 territories and $73.1m!!

Well, that was pretty spectacular, not to mention very funny. Smarter than I expected, too, even though Whedon does fall back on one or two obvious tropes when it comes to certain scenes involving Iron Man or the Hulk. I'm giving it an A Minus for now, but that's by no means an indication that I had a lukewarm reaction to the movie. To me, anything higher is encroaching on "Stone Cold Classic" territory and I'd need a second viewing to nudge me that way. I think it's the best of Marvel's franchise-starters, including those for Spidey and the X-Men, and that it manages to be both the best Iron Man movie and the best Hulk movie to boot.

Angry fans attack a female critic over a negative review of The Avengers.

I'm curious what you mean by this line. Do you mean that they are the two that get the most screentime? Or that the movie just does them justice?

I'm more interested in this movie for more of Thor and Cap. So far we've only gotten one movie each with them and I just want to see their characters reacting to new threats/challenges.
