OMG! I thought I had the original movie, The Avengers (2012). I even called my nephew to inquire, but kids nowadays don’t know how to communicated live. As I set to watching this movie, I was even more convinced due to the humor in the movie, that I remember hearing being mentioned in other’s reviews.

Anyway, my first impression was too fake – the CGI animation, if that’s what it was. Then I got a good laugh and continued. It was okay. The humor kept me laughing and there was an ultimate fighting action scene that did engage me, but the plot was nothing new: good versus evil.

There was one scene early in the film where the Hulk is returned to David Banner (Mark Ruffalo) and he is shirtless, exposing a hairy chest. Yum! I have a bad habit of being lazy, so I try to find the scenes after the fact and I couldn’t find the scene this time. 🙁 Wah, wah, wah! 😀

So, I still have not seen The Avengers (2012). I suppose I will have to put it on my list of movies.

I must admit that I was intrigued with the introduction of the twins: Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). For a moment, I thought I might be watching Justice League, which I am less eager to watch because I don’t think the movie includes the Wonder Twins: Zan and Jayna. OMG! I just discovered that I have been under a serious delusion: the Wonder Twins are associated with Super Friends, not Justice League. Doh! Okay, now I will add Justice League to my movie list.

Exciting action, humorous. My favorite line: Can’t remember, can’t locate online, but it was from Iron Man to Captain America and involved holding something!? 😀

I had seen Snow White And The Huntsman and loved it for the awesome scenery and costume design. Once again, The Huntsman does not disappoint in this area. Even the idea of using character development to create a new story is so original and enjoyable entertainment.

I’ll admit the story was a little confusing for me, as I kept forgetting this was pre-Snow White. Still in the end I think the story has a glitch in it which precludes the foregone conclusion of Snow White…maybe not…can’t think about it too much.

Love this movie!
