Sorry about the last few weeks being a bit quiet… been really busy.. but I’ll talk all about that in another post..
Movie: Avengers (2012) –
I went down to the Movie theaters on the 2nd day that the new Avengers movie had been released, I had fairly high expectations for this movie, and I must say it lived up to those expectations. I’m happy to report that everything established in previous movies pays dividends in a big way. It’s not that anyone needs to see those other Avenger solo films before seeing this gem but it certainly adds depth and texture to this amazing product.
I have got to tell anyone who will listen that this is one of THE best adventure movies I’ve ever seen. There is only one word to really describe this movie; “AWESOME!”. One of the MANY things I loved was the tension and flat out conflict that arises between team members. It’s not a two dimensional “team wonderful that bands together to fight crime”. Most don’t like each other at fist and there is so much texture to be played. That is great because so many of these characters are larger than life. They have egos and the “heros” aren’t used to working with other people or even playing by the rules. Stark, Thor and Banner all work “the other side of the fence” so to speak. Check out IMDB, writing a proper review for this movie will do it no justice.
I urge everyone to see this movie, as you will all be mind blown!
