MOVIE REVIEW: The Avengers

Wil Avitt's picture

Ok, here we are, The Avengers. Director Joss Whedon's culmination of everything Marvel Studios has been working toward for the past five years, since 2007's Iron Man ended with a cameo in which Nick Fury offered to Iron Man membership into something called the Avenger Initiative. The Avengers, or Avengers Assemble as it's being called in the UK, presumably to distinguish it from the 60's British television series and 90's movie of the same name, currently holds a 94% approval rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes and is being touted as the comic book movie of the year, and quite possibly the decade. By the end of its opening weekend it has beaten out Harry Potter for the opening weekend sales record by more than $30M. So what did I think of The Avengers? I could sum it all up in a single word: disappointing.

Well, it is finally here and we are interested in your thoughts. The fist real trailer for the upcoming Avengers movie, that I think (because I don't want to look it up) is being released next summer.

MOVIE REVIEW: Thor

Wil Avitt's picture

In the past decade since Bryan Singer made superhero flicks a marketable comodity with the first installment of the X-Men franchise, I have only been disappointed three times. The first was Hulk, the second was Superman Returns and the latest comic book movie, Thor (AKA Thor: The Mighty Avenger) has become the third. Please, do not confuse disappointed with dissatisfied. I didn't hate any of these movies, but in every case I was left with the notion that they could have done better.
