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!? 😀

Another sad movie, but very informative and explosive. Required much attention, but the subject matter was fascinating, requiring less effort to stay engaged with the story.

Left me feeling sad that so much injustice and wrong-doing exists in our world. I lost my faith when I discovered I was homosexual and could not make my learned spirituality jive with my lifestyle. A friend of mine taught me how to seek a god of my understanding, and ever since, I am whole. The anonymous program taught me that spirituality is personal; that I need not be a sheep to be in line with a god of my understanding.

John SlatteryI thought Mark Ruffalo’s performance stood out from the rest of the cast and I now have a new crush on John Slattery. That man is a frikkin’ hottie! I am familiar with Liev Schreiber, Stanley Tucci and Billy Crudup, but for the life of me I could not place the names, especially with the make-up on Liev.

Good movie!
