Avengers Assemble
 
Joss Whedon you are my hero. Most epic movie!

Taak Farst 04-27-2012 07:23 PM

I plan on seeing this, If I can find a cinema near me that is actually screening it in 2D. Ridiculous when 2D becomes the sought-after alternative...

Miltiades 05-02-2012 11:50 AM

I saw the movie myself last friday. Loved it! The action-y bits were quite impressive, but nothing's better than the heroes giving each other a hard time. Hehe. Was a bit worried all those heroes in one movie wouldn't really work, but it really did. It does help if you've seen the previous Marvel movies, of course, but it does work on its own.

Gotta say, Hiddleston's Loki is an amazing villain. I hope he sticks around for Thor 2 and Avengers 2 if that ever happens.

Negative Sun 05-02-2012 06:26 PM

Yeah Hiddleston was amazing. One of the best Marvel movie villains ever. Mark Ruffalo was a great Hulk too they handled his character really well. Yeah those movies will definitely happen I'm sure and I can't get enough of them! I hope Whedon will have a hand in Avengers 2 though.

This. Easily the best super hero film I've ever seen, so completely action packed and hillariously funny in places. The script was amazing.

There are four Marvel Studios flicks confirmed and scheduled. Iron Man 3 on 3rd May 2013 followed by Thor 2 on 15th November 2013. The Captain America sequel is penned for 4th April 2014. The fourth film (scheduled for 16th May 2014) has yet to be titled but could very well be the next Avengers film. Or a Mark Ruffalo Hulk.

Taak Farst 05-05-2012 03:57 AM

I'm with leXX, this is honestly one of if not the best superhero movie i've seen. It was fantastic and very well done. Top marks!

Shem 05-05-2012 03:14 PM

Saw the move last night. I must say:
spoiler:
The Hulk and Loki fight was one for the ages. I never laughed so hard during a fight scene.

Alexrd 05-06-2012 02:11 PM

Just saw it. I was entertained, but it was in no way a masterpiece as many people say.

Very overrated movie.

Miltiades 05-06-2012 02:26 PM

Biggest opening weekend ever for The Avengers. That sequel is now pretty certain, if it wasn't already. :D

Totenkopf 05-06-2012 04:16 PM

Saw it this afternoon. Loki makes a great ragdoll, 'nuff said.

Astor 05-07-2012 04:57 AM

I liked it. I thought the 3d was a bit lacklustre, but the film itself was great.

.:Lord Revan:. 05-07-2012 10:30 AM

Best superhero movie ever!!!

This being the very first movie I bothered to pay the 3d premium for, let's say I was very underwhelmed and shall never do it again.

Thanatos9t 05-10-2012 04:16 AM

The movie was not filmed in 3D but was converted post production.

^ This.

Was a big meh for me. Plot was predictable as duck, especially the conflicts between the heroes, as were the fight scenes (except Hulk vs Loki - that was pure gold).


I agree that Loki was a great character, however. I also liked Mark Ruffalo's representation of the Hulk.

I agree. It was all too forced. Specially some one-liners/jokes.

That's true, Mark was great.

Lynk Former 05-12-2012 11:04 AM

A lot of the criticisms are well founded even though it is a pretty entertaining movie. The thing I liked most about it though were the smaller character interactions, like Stark and Banner's scientist geekouts.

Also, Milt... your link must be lying, cause after all... piracy is killing Hollywood.

Negative Sun 05-12-2012 06:09 PM

Criticism is not well founded...it is a comic book adaptation, not a Shakespeare play. And it is the pinnacle of comic book movies, end of.

Who said it needs to be a Shakespeare play?

Lynk Former 05-12-2012 06:12 PM

Who said comic book adaptations are immune to criticism?

I like the Nolan Batman movies better... this was just Iron Man and Friends... which is great, cause I loved both Iron Man movies... but it's still a valid criticism.

I love the Nolan Batman movies too he's done an amazing job with them. This movie though (if you're a comic book fan) ticks all the right boxes for a flawless comic book adaptation because it has so much detail and love for the genre in it. But it also keeps it accessible for people not too familiar with the genre and a newer generation of fans whilst blending together a lot of established characters in a well thought out manner. TBH I don't see Nolan doing that, he's good at what he does, Whedon did an epic job with this one.

People saying "oh the story is so predictable blablabla" are just criticising for the sake of it, it's a Marvel movie what did they expect? It's like going to watch a Pixar film and moan about it being animated 3D, utterly pointless :thmbup1:

Lynk Former 05-12-2012 07:30 PM

I don't know about the others, but the predictable part for me was the fact that Iron Man would do 98% of all the cool stuff... and he did. So yeah, to me, the criticism is valid :p Just take the fact that not everyone is going to gush over the movie and think it's the greatest thing ever.

Sorry, but that Pixar comparison is a bad strawman. Why shouldn't Marvel movies be criticized for the story (or anything else) like the rest?

I see too much hypocrisy on some reviews I've read when they disregard character development and story, rate it a 9/10, and at the same time criticize other superhero movies on those parts. They let their fanboyism speak louder.

I liked it, but I was a bit disappointed that they chose to focus on Iron Man, especially when at times he's been a massive **** in the comics. And I get that this an adaptation, and he's still one of Earth's greatest heroes, but after reading some of the more notable ones it's difficult to see him solely as the playboy-genius-billionaire.

Miltiades 05-13-2012 06:55 AM

Iron Man isn't my favorite, so yeah, was a bit disappointed as well by the focus on his character. I would've wanted more Thor. :)

Q 05-13-2012 11:53 PM

Saw it. It was worth watching, but I think that Spiderman 1&2 and the first two Nolan Batman movies were better.

Notable moment:

Prime 05-15-2012 04:05 PM

Not worth seeing in 3D. Very fun movie though...

@Thread: Somewhat related: Kotaku - These Avengers Action Figures Look so Real You’ll Think They’re Tiny Actors


Horey shet.

Negative Sun 05-21-2012 07:34 PM

That Loki one is badass!

Q 05-23-2012 02:38 AM

Those figures are incredibly realistic. The Chinese manufacturer must've enslaved some real artists.

They've come a long way since the Kenner Star Wars action figures that looked nothing like the characters.

Pho3nix 05-23-2012 05:42 AM

Yeah but those are on another caliber than "regular" action figures... they probably cost a minimum of a couple hundred bucks at least.

Q 05-23-2012 05:54 AM

Yeah, Star Wars action figures were $2.50-$3.00 when I was a kid.

They're worth quite a bit more, now, if they're unopened.

Taak Farst 05-23-2012 12:37 PM

Loki - $219.99
Thor - $199.99
Captain America - $214.99
Nick Fury - $189.99
Hawkeye - $189.99

Iron Man one hasn't been released yet.
I think it's probably for the best for all males out there that Black Widow ISN'T a part of this collectible series.

Q 05-23-2012 12:41 PM

Wanna bet there's a life-size, inflatable version?

I wouldn't pay that much for those figures unless they transformed into three different modes and had a genius level of engineering going into their transformations... :carms:

Pho3nix 05-23-2012 06:04 PM

I would maybe pay that much if they were... sexual... figures









I'd get Black Widow

Q 05-23-2012 07:43 PM

You mean "anatomically correct"? :p

Look's like she's actually going to be the next one in the line:

Show spoiler


Hot Toys has done one of her in another series, but it's obviously not as realistic as the one above is going to be:
