    I was bored.

    Iron Man was good in it though.

    I always thought the avengers were corny as hell. But when the word of mouth is 90% positive it's worth the money. I guess I'm gonna have to check it out.

    It is corny. Its just well made corny. Joss Whedon took what he had to work with and made a great movie with it. Its not Schindler's List. Comic book movies are inherently silly by their very nature, including Dark Knight. If you aren't down with that save your money 'cause its never going to be anything else.

    I saw it about a week ago and I have to say I'm kinda itching to see it again.
    Funnier than I expected and I was pleasantly surprised by the Hulk too, after that horrible business with the Ed Norton film.

    Definitely one of the most enjoyable films I've seen this year.

    Not sure what you mean by that? The fact he was gone or the Norton one was a mess? Because, I found the Norton film enjoyable but the previous Bama one a mess.

    Yeah I wrote it kinda weird. Don't get me wrong I like Ed Norton and I enjoyed The Incredible Hulk too.
    I meant the way he was dropped by Marvel wasn't the most pleasant, and I was expecting Hulk's portrayal to be awkward because of it, not sure why.

    But god yeah, not sure what was going on with the Bana one, not as bad as I had read it was (by a marginal amount, mind you) but still....just...no...

    I don't mind movies where you get to leave your brain at home, but there is a thin line between leave your brain at home and leave your dignity at home. It's the difference between Indiana Jones #3 and Indie Jones #4. Joss Wheadon is the kind of guy to know the difference.

    I had pretty low expectations going in, even if I do love Joss Whendon, and I have to say I came out having really enjoying the movie. Was it a masterpiece-- not really, but then, how could it be? Having said that, it was still a heck of a lot of fun.

    More likely there will be a Mega Crossover with ten different films all in one summer and you have to see them all or you won't know what the hell's going on. i.e. Secret Wars, Infinity Gauntlet, Civil War, etc. As long as they don't do Atlantis Attacks....

    I don't know if it's my favorite movie. But I'll say this; Avengers was the coolest movie I have ever seen.

    When I was watching it I honestly felt like the people who would describe Star Wars for the first time back in the 70's and continue to talk about it for decades. I don't know if it will be like that, but you better believe I'll be talking about it forever! lol

    I just got back from watching it and enjoyed it. Didn't feel like 2 1/2 hours. And yes I even watched all the way through the credits (and I meal ALL the credits)

    I saw it on Imax 3D (because non 3d wasn't available) I have to say the 3D wasn't really worth it. The movie itself was. Plus I hate having to put on glasses over glasses...it's annoying.

    "The Avengers" is now the record holder for the biggest second-weekend number too. Thanks to its $628.9 million 19-day international haul, "The Avengers" is now one of only 11 movies to climb past the $1 billion mark worldwide.
