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

I just got back as well. Epic. Totally epic. Lived up to the hype. Not going to give a detailed review, I just want to gush a little. Every character had their moments and the dialogue was sharp (thank you Whedon). One of the complaints I have about the other Marvel films is that the action feels lacking towards the climax, but in Avengers it never lets up. I was very sad when it ended and I can't wait to see it again.

There was a moment when I was just sat in the cinema thinking 'I'm watching Captain America, Iron Man, Bruce Banner and Thor arguing. Holy shit'.

So many positive reviews.. I can't wait to see it next week.

But a question now. What kind of Hulk do we get here? The usual or a smart talking one?

The usual, but not as uncontrolled as in his own movies.

On top of that he'll make you cry from laughing.
He's pretty much the secret star of the movie.

Oh, and for the record: I watched it and it was awesome. In Whedon, we trust.
A+

I am psyched by all these positive reviews and at the same time, I'm chomping at the bit because I have to wait another week!



Guess I'll go read my new issue of Entertainment Weekly - awesome cover! That will have to hold me until next Saturday.

I'm starting to wish I had the money to fly to one of the countries it opened in so I can see it right friggin' now. I'm gonna be going crazy for the next week.

Ditto!
Just got home and pulled it out of the mail.
Great cover, I'm just hoping the article is spoiler free. Sometimes EW gets lax on those things.

Heads up for those that are weak for spoilers.

The post credits scene is up on youtube for now.


All I can say in a cryptic way is

I now have hope that Darkseid in future Superman movies can be realized.

That was a fantastically fun ride. All the heroes got their moments, good and bad, and came together in a very fun ride. The teaser villain was so cool, I hope the folks at Marvel can live up to it. Far more fun than Nolan's Batman films.

A video parody - Marvel's The Avengers (on a budget) - Kinder spoilish - but rather funny.

Yep, which I'm really glad about because Hulk has always been in my top 3 Marvel heroes. It's great that he's actually been in a successful film now!

Some of my favourite moments -



Actually that list could go on and on.
