I know, I know... I've not posten anything for literally AGES (years, at least) and now I just do it to squee.

Squee is better than whining, or ranting, though! :D

The Avengers!!! OMG why didn't I see this at the cinema?? Why Why WHY??

Now I want to see all the movies leading up to this fantastic explosion of an epic movie, and then watch The Avengers again! I'm not embarrassed to admit, I've watched the movie three times within the last 24 hours, and I want to watch it again now.

Soooo many great scenes, fights, great dialogue, extremely Whedon'esque humour and one-lines that have you both go *facepalm* and OMGLMFAO!!!, really really good characterisation and an unexpectedly fantastic balance between the different 'superheroes' and their 'roles' in the group.

I love Hawkeye, even 'bad' Hawkeye. He's just badass. He would kick Haldir's arse, and I adore Haldir! I want a movie about Hawkeye. I can't remember the comics, I was more of a DC reader than a Marvel reader <.<

I love Black Widow, she blows my mind and is like Charlies Angels and James Bond rolled into one. And just when you think there's absolutely no actual humanity left in this super secret badass hero, you see it right there, in her face and reactions. Very, very well played!

Hulk... oh Hulk. I think I've fallen in love with this character all over again after more or less ignoring his last two movies. He's just ... HULK!

Stark is just Stark, our beloved superhero Diva, and I just love how he in a scene starts out describing Loki, realising how similar they are (in some areas) and thus realising Loki's plan!

Agent Coulson *deep sigh* he's my personal superhero, and will always be.

Captain America is EXACTLY as he should be (and now I want to watch the Captain America movie, because I haven't and I'm kicking myself for that!!!!) and I adore how naturally it comes to him to be a hero and a leader, and the stark (hhahahahah) contrast between him and Stark, which in the end works for them.

Thor actually got a bit on my nerves this time, which is odd since I love the Thor movie.... I don't know why, but the best scene with him (for me at least) was when he and Hulk just demolished a huge Alien 'vessel' and they're standing next to each other, and Hulk just knocks him right out of the ballpark with a casual left *smash* (did I mention I love Hulk??? LOL). Alright, I do like him for being somewhat naive and trying to turn Loki back towards the good, which is also extremely in character. He just didn't really capture me this time.

Last, but not least at all, Loki. Oh oh Loki, you poor misguided soul. So much anger and resentment and nowhere to put it, without those little ants of humans and your stupid big brother foiling your well-laid plans again and again! No fair! He made a really good run for it, and for the longest had the 'ants' (humans) exactly where he wanted them. But - like any 'good' villain - got too cocky and didn't really account for one thin...


Best lines:

Thor: He is my brother!
Black Widow: He killed 84 people in two days!
Thor: *mutters* He was adopted.

Pilot: Target acquired... Target engaged.......... TARGET ANGRY!
Hulk: *demolishes fighter plane and uses ejector-seat pilot as bouncy ball*

Loki: I have an army!
Stark: *total deadpan* We have a Hulk.

Hulk: Puny God.
Loki: *whimper* (this really had me gasping from laughter... I'm easy to amuse, I know)

Captain America: Hulk... Smash!
Hulk: *bigass grin*

(you see where this is leading, yeah? HULK just ruled this movie, from behind, sneaksily like an elephant bull in a china shop)

I could go on, but I should consider bed. I'm sorry for longish squee'y post, but I couldn't contain it any longer! LOL

Love you all.

  • Joss really did an amazing job, didn't he? Any other director, and Black Widow would have been scenery. Instead, she actually got to steer scenes herself.

    I have to say that for me, the movie's become about Loki, but I've only gotten to watch once (though at least that was in the theatre...). I can't wait to see it again. I desperately want to own it, but first, job...

    Sounds like you had a great time watching, though. :D Welcome to the club. ;)
    • Joss really, really nailed it with this movie and I agree, Black Widow could easily have become yet another (lethal) pretty scenery, and could also easily have become a 2-dimensional character without much depth. Instead you get small glimpses (or well, we THINK we do, because who knows with her!!!) of the person behind the 'mask'.

      Loki did steer a lot of the movie in his direction, and Tom did a fantastic job portraying him. I want to smack him, throw him into an abyss and cuddle him all at the same time! LOL

      I have had so much fun watching this and I'm still laughing at the same things as I did the first time around. Not because I'm that silly, but because it's just that damned funny!

      Loki's little post-Hulk-impact-whimper kills me. Every. Single. Time.

      Of to the sofa, a cuddle blanket and Avengers on my screen again! LOL

    I ended up seeing Avengers 5 times in the cinema. I got the blu-ray the other day and watched it twice more *G* In other words: no shaming!

    It really is the best superhero movie so far. It just works on all levels. Not least that it manages to do great characterisation for EVERYONE! I think Cap's characterisation is even better than in his own movie! (Which I like just fine, but it's a bit one-string sometimes.) Tony and Steve are my guys, I must say. They began eating at my brain last year and, well, there's writing, and now apparently RP too ;-)

    But yes. Watch the other ones! (IMO, the Hulk movie isn't all that good, but I really do like Captain America. That and the two Iron Man are my faves, and the second Iron Man really only because TONY!)

    • You, roleplay??? Nahhhhh... surely not!? LOL

      Well, the Iron Man movies are already favourites of mine, and are totally rewatchable (and will be watched again)!!

      I was thinking mostly of the Captain America movie which I hadn't seen at all, and then rewatch Thor (watched it twice and even though its terribly cheesy in places, it's still a good movie), Hulk (half-watched once and can't really say it stuck with me at all) and the Iron Man movies.

      And now I'm going to cuddle up with a warm blanket and watch Avengers again LOL. Afternoon off, rainy day, sofa calling my name loudly! But I doubt I'll at any point fall asleep, it's just that good a movie!
  • Welcome to the madhouse!

    That movie has gone through fandom like a dose of [insert appropriate simile here].

    I have been tempted by Hawkeye and Loki (not together though) myself...

  • hubby got free tickets to this movie. we loved it. i checked all of the othermovies out of the library. captain america movies is good.

    "puny god" = best line ever. hulk reminded me of our dog with her ropetoys while flipping loki around
