It's the movie we need, but not the one we deserve.
Watched it again last night, it seemed to move a lot more quickly this time. I could actually watch it over and over again. I might go and see it a third time, which I've never done for another movie.
Just under 17 hours now for me.
I predict very little work getting done today.
I insist that all movie criticism should come from those lacking basic critical thinking skills. It's more fun that way!
Armond White is always fun to read - he won't stay on the reservation. Ebert, as always, is the best movie reviewer working (and fuck all the guys who do it for free).
Bugger, this wasn't in the Hong Kong version.
I enjoyed the film. Not perfect. I wasn't with it heart and soul but I loved seeing it all come together. It was fun, I liked the big bangs and the action is pretty beautiful, the shots of Heroes fighting alongside eachother was very pretty. I also liked that unlike Transfromers I could see what the hell was going on.
BTW, someone told me there is an F-bomb in this. Where was it?
The only thing I remember is Scarlett saying "Baise moi", which i think translates as "F* me", when they send her to get Banner
Ahhhh, Armond White. You always deliver.
According to Google Translate that is a yes.
Marvel's The Avengers has pulled in $281m in 8 days of International release so far. With today's totals, not tallied till tomorrow it should be over $300m on opening day in North America.
I think it was "Bozhe moi" (Russian for "O my God", and used a lot in comics). "Baise-moi" is French.
Spoiler: cussing in The Avengers.
As for the f-bomb, or rather q-bomb, Loki calls Natasha a "mewling quim", which is an archaic and highly misogynistic equivalent of "whiny c***". Also, I think someone used the word "bastard" as a pejorative.
I suppose that could be it too, though the way the scene played and how she reacted I could see her saying "F* me" more than I could see her say "Oh my god"
I assure you it does not sound as "baise-moi."
Actually I heard a review that said it was Loki who said something that sounding like a F-bomb sounding. I guess that was it.
Perfect timing with Amazing Spider-man and the Avengers
I miss those videos. I also liked the use of Spidey in that one.
Virtually every grade is in the "A" range. That's pretty surprising.
I just got back from a midnight showing, and I'll say I can die a happy and contented man. Spectacular. I had a ball. I saw some of my favorite superheroes kick every kind of ass possible on the big screen together. Oh man. I need to go see it again, like right freaking now.
Well if the world really ends in Dec 2012 atleast we all got to see The Avengers!!
It's been kicking arse here. So far it's made around $23 million in 8 days. And I reckon it will make more this weekend, it should be able to beat all the other movies that are screening at the moment.
I wanted to attend the midnight screening. Heck, on the day was so pumped. And then the next day saw it again. It's so amazing.
Tomorrow, planning attending FCBD ... and hopefully get an Avengers comic that is offer. Heck it's just gonna be a fun day, as everything is ready.
