Planning on seeing to Tuesday. Sucks that Hulk still stands out as much as he does in every movie (CGI). Maybe in ten years they might actually get him to look "real".

I just watch Jamunji for the first time in years, and I will never ever complain about CGI in a any movie ever again.

Also, I do want to see this film.

I was waiting the entire time for the catchphrase and they never used it. Aside from that and a few other minor things, it's the best Marvel movie by far. I've already got a chub for the next one.

Only a few people could of pulled this off with the required tone and balance. Whedon one of them. Totally deserves the plaudits. Superhero movies of this variety have a new barometer.

Very well said.

My sensory needs have been satisfied!
I wonder how Ironman3 will go since it's being partly filmed in China, along with a Chinese partner company. :-/

Also...I wonder who had the idea of putting a Black Sabbath - Never Say Die shirt on Tony Stark. Very cool.

I saw it yesterday and it was good. Not super insanely earth shattering....but good. I'll probably get it on blu ray. I didn't stay for the credits much, did they like a scene pointing to the next film?

Just got back from seeing it. Incidentally, I had just rewatched all of Firefly last week, and could easily see Whedon's hands all over the Avengers.
Really liked the movie. Although the whole subplot was really sketchy. As in, it made no fucking sense at all; unless someone borrowed the DeLorean from Back to the Future.

You missed out on one badass villain reveal.

Marvel is nothing but superpowers shit. X-men (minus first class), spiderman, fantastic four all sucked on screen. Nolan's Batman and watchmen are some of the best superhero movies ever, including the first Superman. You obviously haven't seen The Dark Knight. Ledger brought a character to life that didn't rely only on superpowers to be cool.

None of those were made by Marvel, they didn't have the rights for them. Marvel Studios itself made Thor, IM 1 and 2, Captain America, The Avengers as far as recent films go. You're attacking them for films they didn't make.

Also, I did see TDK, and other than Ledger, I thought the film was meh... Bale sucks as Batman.

Also Batman DOES have a superpower, it's called plot-armor. Look that up.

Mostly agree with this, except for Spiderman. The first Spiderman is still the best of the three (even though more seem to think the second is). The worst part about it was the silly Goblin outfit, but overall it was one of the top superhero movies. And him having powers isn't what made the movie so good either. The X-Men movies however (sans First Class...) really did suck ass. They were all horrible. Same goes for the Wolverine movie.

The best movies based off of Marvel characters are Spiderman 1&2, Iron Man, Captain America, First Class and The Avengers. Thor was "ok", but not necessary viewing by any means.
DC had the first two Burton movies, the Nolan movies (what do these have in common?) and the first two Superman movies. The Watchmen however trumps most of them, and still did piss poorly at theatres.

I have to say I've enjoyed all of the movies leading up to the Avengers and the Avengers itself a great deal.

Well, I just thought when he said "nothing DC has put out is better than Marvel's worst," -- That was either a big trolling statement, or something seriously stupid. The Nolan Batman films (not just TDK) are pretty grade-A, imo. I'm not exactly super stoked on Bale being Batman, I think Batman in those movies could have "more attitude" like Keaton did, but he's still good. He plays a good Bruce Wayne, which is almost as important of a character as Batman.

Sorry Captain Beard, I was talking about movies with Marvel characters. If Marvel didn't actually produce them then my bad, I guess we can say Marvel doesn't produce "the shitty ones."

and dude...most superhero movies, comic books in general have plot-armor. You'd think Magneto would annihilate everyone pretty quick? Why not? Plot-armor

I think Bale is a ridiculously kick ass Batman.

I'd go as far to say sensational.

I don't actually mind Bale as Batman, but I think he's much better as Bruce Wayne, while I couldn't stand Keaton as Wayne, yet loved his Batman. I think the biggest issue with Bale is the "scary demon voice" he's always doing. It's not scary as much as it sounds like Scooby Doo with strep throat. It's also supposed to actually just be something in the neck of his suit pressing up against his larynx to disguise his voice. But it doesn't make it any less annoying.

I agree, his voice is annoying but I don't hate as much as some because it's a good disguise. If someone is Batman, he outta have an annoying raspy voice to conceal his identity. What else is he going to do, growl like Mikael Akerfeldt? I bet he sounds like that because every other raspy voice disguise Nolan tried to make him do probably sounded worse. lol
