Re: The avengers what did you think?

Just saw it in IMAX 3D, and I LOVED IT!

I will definetly be going to see it again, but in 2D, primarily because of cost, not as a reflection of the quality of the 3D.

To the rest of the world who have yet to see, this I think, or should I say hope you love it, because Marvel are really firing on all cylinders now, and I pray for more output from them in the coming years.

Suit up!

Re: The avengers what did you think?

Have to agree with the above, IMAX 3D was awesome. Full cinema, lots of laughs, tons of action. One bit early on with Banner that scared the bejesus out of me.

It's a home run, don't worry about it letting you down or overhype, just go there and enjoy it, you will!

The second half of The Avengers is filled with such fantastic action, it indeed has more action than all Marvel movies combined. Joss Whedon crafted the team conflict so well and balanced it out with such brilliant humour.

And though some characters managed to steal the show, Whedon showed the importance of every character and gave them their moment to shine on multiple occasions. As a comic fan there were times while watching Avengers I couldn't believe I am getting to see these comic characters come to life all together like that.

And one of the best things about opening day is the enthusiastic crowd, who cheered right from the title sequence and during every character's intro scene.

There is a moment in the film where Alan Silvestri's awesome main Assemble theme music kicks in during that surround shot of the Avengers, I had almost tears of joy during that brief moment. Also the audience really cheered at that scene (among many others).

And the 3D for The Avengers was really impressive, also maybe it was cause of the proper bright light conditions. It is one of the best live action 3D experience I had.

Ok guys I watched it again last night and here's my take on the Banner grabbing Loki's 'boomstick of destiny' deal.

When Loki is captured and escorted by SHIELD soldiers in the Helicarrier, there's that slo-mo scene where he stares at Banner and he smiles at him. Banner is staring back and at the end of the scene, he takes off his glasses and has to rub the bridge of his nose, showing that Loki puts a spell on him at that point and it slowly starts to make him lose until he goes Hulk on the Helicarrier. Him grabbing the spear during the argument helps to show that he's losing control in an uncanny manner.

It's not entirely clear if the spear plays a role in all this. When the spear was glowing while everyone was arguing in the room, it was to signal to Hawkeye the Helicarrier's location. Now maybe the spear and Loki's spell go hand-in-hand to influence Banner into losing control, but if so I believe its effects are only on Banner and not the rest of the team. It would downplay the tensions among the individual Avengers if they were all cast in some spell by the spear to cause the infighting, and I'm sure Whedon wants to show that these guys all don't get along even without some mystery magic cast on them.

One part that threw me off a bit during the infighting scene was when Cap and Stark were still going at it, and Stark shakes his head inexplicably in the middle of the argument. It almost seems like he also felt the effects of Loki's spell but he may also just have been shaking his head at something that Cap or someone else said. I'm watching the movie again next Thursday, I guess I'll have to give this another look :)

I saw it 3 times yesterday. Can't get over how much I loved it. Widows 'hair-butt' makes me laugh each time. I must concentrate on her breasts next time.

The only issue I had was Loki calling Widow a 'mewling quim'. At first I thought I'd mis-heard, but I hadn't. I thought it was an odd decision to have that level of vulgarism in this type of movie...unless it was trying to highlight just how deranged Loki had become...

Is Thor's full sleeved outfit the same as his original movie suit? Also, not really a spoiler, but does he ever wear his Helmet in the flick?

Re: The avengers what did you think?

Laughed so hard at this and the cheap shot on Thor!
Same here brah!!

First time I honestly think Bruce Banner and Hulk had some screen presence!!! Ruffalo has made the character his !!! And he didn't make me want to gouge both my eyes out with stanley blades made from pepakura!!!

And thank F**K Stark has gone back to the circular arc reactor !! Something about that triangle reactor that made me think of carney folk....

What did everyone think of the "usual after the credits" peek?

Re: The avengers what did you think?

Liked it, but didn't love it. The 3D was good, but I would have been fine watching the movie without it. I actually liked Bruce Banner/Hulk the most. I thought they struck the right balance between Banner and Hulk.

I thought during the scene with the spear Loki seemed to be listening to what was being said and possibly had some form of influence over Banner similar to in the extra scene at the end of Thor where he seems to be controlling Selvig.
also the bracelets Stark put on, i think, are leading into them using the Extremis storyline in IM3.
but other than that IT'S FREAKING EPIC with a capital OMG!
can't wait till Sunday so I can go see it again!
I seriously, seriously doubt that there will be any form of extremis in this reality. even with thor and hulk its a little too far fetched...

excellent point! I hadn't really remembered that part till you mentioned it, I really need to go see the movie again...

I heard it. I giggled. its such an un used word that I suspect a lot of people probably missed it or didn't get it. thankfully my two housemates boys didn't get it :D

I saw it last night and was seriously impressed, it lived up to my expectations for which I am glad as I was very excited to see how these characters would work together, personally I loved Captain Americas new outfit, it definitely worked better on screen than how it appeared in stills, I thought the scene where Cap takes on Loki was great! Great to see Thor back as well, his exchange with Loki was well done and pretty funny when Iron Man sweeps Thor away to fight with Loki left standing there! Will definitely be seeing it again

Guys, here in Italy, we've seen only the thanos scene. There was no other scene later on, or after the titles whatsoever.
Can someone please describe it please?

I think this is about the 'rumoured' additional credit scene the RDJ mentioned on the red carpet. As far as I know, it doesn't exist, it was a joke...

Re: The avengers what did you think?

Just got back and loved it, so did the girlfriend, great action, great humour and by far the best film I've seen for quite a while. However never again will I bother with 3D, it just detracts from the film for me and spoils the enjoyment. I really dont see the need for it anymore and will always go 2D from now on.

GO SEE THIS MOVIE

Seriously enjoyed the movie, big time. And Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner is a win!
