    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.

    Freakin' Awesome...
    Great chemistry between the actors/characters helps selling the movie/story...

    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.

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    His chin looks like a string of clitorises.

    Clitori?

    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.

    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 -

    The guy playing that computer game on the helicarrier.

    Captain America leaping over the cars like Spider-Man.

    Hulk v Loki.

    Hulk punching Thor.

    "I'm always angry"...BOOM.

    Actually that list could go on and on.

    But -

    Was anyone else left cold by Coulson's death? There were a few gasps in the audience but for some reason I didn't find it that shocking.

    He got Wash'd. Typical Whedon MO and I don't think I hate that.

    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.
