No, only a few excerpts. It's mostly about the concept art. It's a beautiful book!

BW and Hawkeye were good at fighting the aliens because they were both elite assassins, they were top-tier military personnel trained and honed to do these very things...
No, BW's handguns were one of the very few issues I had with the movie. A 12 second scene where Stark whips up a "repulser pistol" in the helicarrier lab and tosses it to her, and her combat effectiveness suddenly needs 100% less suspension of disbelief.

Her physically taking out the aliens and appropriating their staff-blasters I was fine with. That's your highly trained agent. But there's no difference between her 9mm and the one's the cops have. If her two pistols could do that much damage, then a squad of, say, Navy SEALS would have taken out the entire army of Chitauri foot soldiers in half an hour. It is the one thing that makes the Chitauri look completely defeatable.

Her pistols gives us a real life benchmark to measure the Chitauri against. That's where it goes wrong. Cap's athletics and Hawkeye's arrows are off the real-life scale and we can imagine them to be as powerful as the plot requires. A 9mm is always a 9mm.
The guns were SHIELD-issue, which probably means they were actually much MORE than a normal 9mm. Probably had depleted uranium rounds, special propellant, etc.

What is with Amazon's exorbitant preorder price for the Avengers DVD? What bullshit. Looks like I'm walking into a physical store on this one.

Amazon's current pre-order price, at 30% off, is for $153USD for the 10 disc set.
If you bought 10 BluRay films at $20 a pop that would be $200.
If you bought 10 Blu Ray films at $15 a pop that would be $150.

Where is the outrage?

Maybe because you aren't getting 10 films. You're getting 6 films, plus 4 discs of fluff extras that generally come with the Blu Rays anyway.

It's obviously a preference thing but a good many people pay for that fluff. They offer bare bones versions and 2 disc sets. So people clearly pay for that extra disc of content cause the 2 disc versions sell.

If it bothers you that much then wait till Black Friday...probably be a good sale on it then.

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

I'm well aware of it. But the point is when you break it all down you're paying $25.50 each for the 6 films. Which is just about what you'd pay for them if you bought them seperately at your local Target or Wally World. Ergo there is no discount.

And it was Set Harth that was outraged. I was just suggesting a reason why.

No need to be outraged. Disney isn't forcing anyone to buy the Blu-ray set.
