    Honestly, the last thing I was doing was listening to the music. I can deal with it not being John-Williamsesque.

    The Thanos reveal at the end of Avengers may lead into Guardians of the Galaxy. I can see an appearance Thor or Loki or even Sif and the Warriors Three in a GotG movie. Especially if they pick up on Thanos' in terest in the Tesseract. I'm sure Hemsworth signed a multi-multi-film deal ala Samuel L. Jackson, so it wouldn't be out of the question.

    Superman is blue and red, has a cape and an S. It seems they got all the important stuff right there too.

    As much as I absolutely love this movie I do have to register my disappointment at one thing. I can only really remember the main theme from the score. After the fantastic job that Alan Silvestri did with Captain America, this one just doesn't measure up.

    Hope you guys will forgive me for not wanting to wade through 40 pages of messages, but hows the 3D in this one?

    I'm not a fan of the process, but if it really adds a lot to the film, I may take the chance and pay the extra $4.

    The 3D is excellent for post-converted. I found it actually a little too good. Way too overstimulating for me. There's enough to see, adding an extra dimension is almost too much of a fantastic thing. At least for me. I'm pretty hyper though. :D

    This is priceless. The Department of Defense refused to cooperate with the Avengers because S.H.I.E.L.D. works for Homeland Security!

    Waaa waaa waaa! :rommie: Bureaucratic infighting over fictional organizations. Our tax dollars at work.

    More like not working... we probably saved money. ;) Anyway, as I read it the DoD didn't like the way SHIELD took orders from an international organization, which would be different from DHS.

    Anyone else think Thor's reset-button got hit as far as this movie's events are concerned? Consider that everyone else's character got a bit more developed but with Thor his coming back is pretty much hand-waved with an "Ohhh. Odin spent a lot of money to get you here." (or something.) And then at the end the Tesseract is used to bring Thor and Loki back to Asgard with only lip service played to Jane Foster.

    It seems like it was like "Uhhh... We need Thor to come back for the movie, but we also need him back stuck in Asgard at the end in order for the next movie to deal with him getting back to Jane/Jane getting to him."

    I mean Captain America emerges as a leader and adapts more to life in the 21st century, Tony Stark grows up a bit more (and risks his life to save NYC), Banner gains yet more control of The Hulk and shows himself more of a hero and even Black Widow gets some development. All of this will translate into their next movies. But Thor? Nope. Reset button. He came to Earth for a few days, helped save the world, then he went back home more-or-less like nothing happened.

    Summed it up perfectly. Thor's reset button treatment was the only thing that bothered me about The Avengers.

    This movie was fucking awesome. Holy shit. I do wish that Thor had a bigger part, especially since his frickin' brother is the main villain, but other than that I think every character was used the perfect amount of time. I admit I didn't remotely give a shit about Black Widow in "Iron Man 2," but she became one of my favorite characters in this movie.

    Honestly, I hope that Jane addresses this in the next Thor movie, and I hope he gets a big slap in the face for not visiting her.

    Then he can drop her silly ass and hook up with Sif.

    I do hope Jane addresses this with Thor. But slapping him? I think she'd be a little more grateful to him than that. He was a little busy saving the planet and everybody on it, including her... ;)

    Oh I gave plenty of shit about Black Widow in Iron Man 2 (mostly for superficial reasons) and in this movie those superficial reasons came back 10 fold but were also compounded by the great use of her here.

    I don't see why so many are down on ScarJo and her in this movie I thought she did a good job with everything she was given. She was great in the "interrogation" scene.

    I had no problem with her in either Avengers or Iron Man 2.

    Same here, (aside from superficial reasons) I really liked her in Iron Man 2. In this movie I thought her best scenes were the interrogation scene, her scene with Loki, scene with Hawkeye and her scene in "recruiting" Banner. I guess, really, all of her key scenes seemed very well done and played by her.
