Conclusions

I must say I enjoyed the GRUNT out of this movie. It was just great. It silences the mouths of those who try and justify lazy writing. It forever shows that continuity completely counts. It demonstrates the beauty of a well done ensemble piece. I hope that it sets a standard for excellence that other movies try and emulate. Let me also say that I think that Avengers is the culmination of many years of effort, starting back with the success of the Blade and X-Men franchises. It’s such a seamless blend of story, action, and special FX. I haven’t been this impressed with the world the movie was constructing since The Matrix.

I cannot wait to get Avengers on DVD, and I can’t wait to see the sequels. Two enthusiastic thumbs up for this movie!

…..and you guys say I never like anything. HAH. 🙂

    Happy to be the first comment regarding this amazing film!

    This is straight from a DC Fangirl here. Marvel, you have completely won me over now, WELL DONE.

    I don’t have much to add, you pointed out every single bit of awesomeness that this film contained. I could go on forever, but, I’ll just point out a few things.

    RDJ should just put “Stark” in his name now, I can’t see him as anybody else now. I even heard back when they were filming Iron Man, that he would even say, “No, Tony Stark wouldn’t say that.”
    “What is this, Shakespeare in the park?” Haha!

    Also LOVED Ruffalo as Banner, he is it, no one else. I described his version on K-Site as the meek scientist that has the underlying current, ready to spark. I felt that the entire film. I also liked his sense of humor, “I wouldn’t be here if I couldn’t handle pointy things.”

    One of the best things was how there was a balance between the comedy and the drama/action. The comedy was peppered in just the right places without being overdone and campy. Hulk randomly punching Thor and grinning crookedly had me rolling. All those little things like that. Of course always Tony, “Bongo drums? Huge bag of weed?”

    The flaws you pointed out, very good ones because I hadn’t looked at the Loki/Thor angle like that but you’re right! I definitely noticed the insta-Hulk after he says “I’m always angry.” and picked up on that.

    DC, yeah, you have a LOT of catching up to do, good luck. JLA? HAHAHA….

      Thanks for your comment!
      And yes, I just watched this whole thing with the attitude of, this is literally probably the best superhero team movie that we will ever see. I doubt they’ll get Fantastic Four right, and I doubt we’ll actually ever even see an actual JLA movie. So, I’m looking forward to this sequel, and only wish that Joss could’ve done the Wonder Woman movie.

    I agree, and as much as I liked TDK, it in no way comes close to this. The beer goggles are off. I watched this film and from the opening scene, instantly knew nothing to come would surpass it. I’m chomping at the bit for this sequel too, it’s got a perfect set up. IM3 trailer shows already the after effects of Avengers on Tony.

    Been a Whedon fan since at least Buffy, he can do no wrong in my eyes. Love the idea for Cobie as WW, I could totally see that.

    Maybe we could start a petition to get him to do that one? Or even consult? Heh…
