Are you new to Joss Whedon, then? His inter-personal dialogue *always* crackles like that, dude.

Edit: what B$ said.

I'm not new to Whedon (saw all of Buffy), but I was never really in tune with his style, or knew what to look out for and expect..

I never get on with Buffy, but Firefly won me over BIG time.

If you haven't watched the 14 eps and the Serenity flick, bro, you really should

Firefly for sure! Such a good series. He wrote Astonishing X-Men as well which I really enjoyed.

Yep, I'm no Marvel fanboy but that was good fun.

There were a few low-tier franchises running about (Bow-and-Arrow Man, Russian Karate Girl, The African Pirate etc.), but they didn't distract too much.

The Halo aliens at the end were pushovers, as has been noted, but that's the same as every single movie like this.

Anyway, good flick. Schwarma.

Dollhouse too. I sure hope Avengers finally levels-up Whedon like he deserves. Studios continue to shit all over his work by canning it.

Also hearing amazing things about Cabin In The Woods.

Yeah I agree, the man deserves a lot more than he has gotten in the past.

I loved Dollhouse, haven't watched it in awhile so I'll probs pick it back up again.

Cabin In The Woods looks insane!! Looking forward to that one fo sure.

Absolutely fucking incredible. Joss, I had no doubt you'd do them justice, but you excelled even your own standards.

Hulk - hilarious!

The Avengers broke all sorts of records in the US

Highest grossing opening weekend ever
First movie to break $200m in opening weekend
Fastest to $100, $150 and $200m
2nd highest opening day ever (including Midnight Screenings) (behind the last Potter)
Highest opening day ever (excluding midnight screenings)
and some others

Bring on The Dark Knight Rises, the bar has been raised!

Enjoyable action film. But not the sort of movie I'd watch often, if ever again. Lack of depth compared to something like the Dark Knight. These are kids films on steroids, a lot to look at - but that's it really.

Really, it's a summer blockbuster action flick. Not exactly the height of cynicism.

I haven't read the thread, do people think there's something deep about this movie?

I thought we were all doing pretty well not bringing up comparisons between the two, really, I had, but you had to go and get childish.

A deep film never rates as well as a good, fun, "doesn't take itself too seriously", action flick. A movie like this is rare these days, where you can go and have a lot of fun and feel like you've spent your cash well.

Yeah don't deny that, and thanks for not jumping down my throat y'all with your responses.

Last time I saw it was 9 on IMDB. My comment was really in response to that which I should've stated.

Dude, compare it to other non-Nolan hero flicks, nothing else comes close. I think the 9 is justified. It's a ballsy action fest that does exactly what it says on the tin.

Saw this last night. Loved every minute of it. Entertaining and engaging the whole way through. I have had no interest in Marvel my whole life, and do not know the background of over half of the characters, but still really liked seeing the combinations of superheroes fighting with and against each other. Brilliant! Did not expect all the laugh out loud moments, made for an even more enjoyable watch.

Want to go see again

Check out the lead up movies before you do see it again imo, it will make things much clearer on the history of the characters.

The order for the movies is

Iron Man
The Incredible Hulk
Iron Man 2
Thor
Captain America
The Avengers

Pretty much, they just want attention, so let's not give it to them.

I've been reading about Joss umming/awwing about a sequel and to be honest, nobody else could do this justice but Joss. I fear that if he passes, they'll give it to a second rate hack to lower costs, increase profits... but the stupid thing is that this has proven that if you bring in quality directors, you make a bajillion dollars.

Joss for Avengers 2 or else. OOORRR EEEEELSE......
