Ah, nice cause Tony does allude to that but since I missed her line it seemed new to me when Tony mentioned it during his conversation with Cap.

Loki's expressions helped sell a lot of his scenes but that one was particularly hilarious.

Also true. He's so caught up in his bravado, pride and speech which Hulk doesn't care to listen to like some would and just let him finish he thus proceeds to interrupt him in that great manner.
His WTF look indeed finishes the scene in a glorious manner. No teleporting when you're caught flat footed!!

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

Just seen it.

I don't see what the big deal is. It was kinda long and drawn out, and the action sequences are kind of "superhero movie as usual" and the actors all looked like they were phoning it in and...and I can't keep typing this stuff with a straight face. Let's see..my real reaction was more like...

OH MY GOD!! THIS MOVIE WAS THE AWESOMENESS!! IT'S THE SUPER AWESOMENESS!! THE WORD "AWESOMENESS" IS NOT AWESOME ENOUGH TO DESCRIBE THE AWESOMENESS OF THIS MOVIE!!! SCREW NOLAN'S "BATMAN!" COMPARED TO MARVEL'S THE AVENGERS, NOLAN'S BATMAN IS GAY!!!

Yeah...sumthin' like that...

As usual, my gut reactions which are filled with spoilerage:

- On the strength of this movie, I hereby officially forgive Joss Whedon for "Firefly/Serenity" and "Alien: Resurrection." (But he's still on my excrement list for Dollhouse, cause that was just too stupid a concept.)

- Multiple nerdgasms when the Helicarrier took off. And stealthed itself. Multiple. Nerdgasms.

- I always say the measure of a comic book movie is how much it reminds me of the comics, and the thing I love most about the separate Iron Man, Thor and Captain America movies is that the creators actually spent five seconds trying to make the movie heroes like the comic ones. Here, Thor twirled his hammer, Cap threw his mighty shield, Hulk smashed and Iron Man was "fightin' and fightin' with repulsor rays"! Again. Multiple. Nerdgasms.

- BTW, way back in the other thread a couple people complained about Black Widow, like "what could the supermodel girl in the spandex with the stupid gun possibly do in a movie like this?" All she did was kick bad guy ass, whether it be Russian weapons dealers, rogue SHIELD agents or alien supersoldiers.

- Then again, she didn't do that great against the Hulk. Then again, where else could you have seen Black Widow versus THE HULK? That's like a fanfiction nightmare plot.

- Loki versus Hulk. (Tee-hee!) Loki: "I AM A GOD!" Hulk: "Me play bouncy." SKBIFF! SKBAP! SWAKKO! SMACKSMACKSMACK! (tee-hee)

- Coulson? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

- Something minor, but I thought of this because I thought the same thing watching Thor: I think it's kind of cool how Loki sometimes sheds the Asgardian threads and walks around looking like a venture capitalist from Norway.

- I'm hoping for Scarlet Witch and Ultron next time around. (Yes, I saw the credit scene. I can dream can't I?)

A+!!!!

Cobie Smulders was way hotter than Scarlett Johansson.
Not sure I'd compare and contrast ScarJo and Smaulders, though, because they're both beautiful and incredibly talented actresses who really get to hold their own in what otherwise is a 'boys movie'.
True, but Johansson was supposed to be the star, yet it was Cobie Smulders that had my attention.

And I must ask why? She was just as flat and boring here as she is in "Mother."

The massive city battle was much more impressive than any of the "Transformers" movies final acts(Downtown LA, Middle east, Chicago)

What probably helped is that there weren't 10ft tall lumps of metal colliding into each other.

I've always liked Cobie ever since I first saw her on the short-lived Veritas: The Quest. I find her attractive and I just thought it was nice to see her in action in a superhero movie. Funny that Whedon got her for this since he once said, jokingly or not, that she was his choice for Wonder Woman.

Likely one of the many reasons his Wonder Woman never got made...

I can't wait till A beaker full of death makes his rant about Black widow's costume not being comic accurate
