Default The Avengers

Not a movie I'd see, but it's projecting to make half a BILLION dollars worldwide in like, a handful of days. Good grief!

I'm not an MBA or expert on Disney business dealings, but from what I gather many of you are both. So are the people who were carping about Disney buying Marvel - and having done so "too late" - going to take this as a panacea? They paid $4 billion, I believe, and will make a good chunk of that back on BO receipts alone for this one movie.

I don't have a dog in this fight so don't really care, but it's looking like a good investment!

We went to a 4:50pm showing yesterday which sold out. It's a great movie and I recommend seeing it (we saw the 2-D version.) It does look like it's going to do very well, which should help Disney following the John Carter fiasco. (If you do go see it, make sure you stay for the credits.)

So glad I read this. We are going see it this afternoon, followed by dinner at our favorite Mexican place (Happy Cinco de Mayo!). We usually try to remember to stay for the credits, but sometimes we forget. Thanks for the reminder!!!!!

Finally, a movie that gets the Hulk right! I loved this movie!:

And stay to the very end of the credits. There are 2 additional scenes, many folks left after the first!

Ahhh, we left after the first scene during the credits. I had a feeling we should have stayed all the way till the end.

Thumbs up Two thumbs WAY WAY UP!

Not gonna lie, I am NOT a huge superhero-movie-person. Save the Dark Knight, I couldn't care less if I ever saw another one again. But I went out and saw this one as an excuse to not study for my finals, and I would go see this movie again. I absolutely adored it! DBF makes fun of me for getting so into movies that we see, but this movie literally had me laughing out loud, and (almost) crying, and with my fists clenched during fight scenes. It was absolutely incredible and deserves every penny it makes!

Funny enough, it wasn't until today that I realized that Disney makes the Marvel movies... Don't hold it against me, I said I didn't care for super hero movies! But learning this made me really excited! Just another great thing to love about Disney!

We also went this weekend. I'm not a huge fan either as far as superhero movies go, but wow, that was really good!! Now my boys, huge fans, said it's the BEST superhero movie they've ever seen, and are going again! We also stayed but only caught the first extra scene. Actually I think most of the theater left then! My son just said the second scene was just showing them eating in a restaurant, and nothing was said, so not too much missed I would imagine. GREAT MOVIE!

I watched the Avengers in the cinema with my younger brother and we both enjoyed it! It's I guess one of the best blockbusters in 2012!

Default I had a theme-park experience watching a movie!

My DH and I recently celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary and did NOTHING. So a few weeks later we decided to make a date of it and see The Avengers. We also splurged and bought D-Box seats with the 3-D.

I had a blast! We had never done D-Box before and it was the perfect movie for it. During a couple of flying scenes I lifted my feet off the ground and it felt a bit like Soarin'! It was the closest thing to actually being in the movie.

My teenagers have seen this movie multiple times and now I know why. Really a fun ride.

Saw this on Sunday and loved it, although I feel like I need to watch Thor and capt America to get some backstory, since I am not a comic fan. When I saw Joss Weadon in the credits I knew it would have some funny in it - great movie!

My family and I saw thsi movie on Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed it! All of the characters were entertaining, but Robert Downing Jr. had the best lines. And our favorite scene was where the Hulk punches Thor sideways out of the blue.

No, it wasn't an exciting scene, but funny just the same, since they were eating in a Shawarma restaurant.

And made even funnier at how they were all stuffing themselves and moaning because they were so full.

I LOVED this movie! And yes, I would recommend seeing Thor and Captain America. Both are good in their own right. Thor manages to take a ridiculous character and origin story and make it seem almost believable (as opposed to the recent Green Lantern movie, which I thought was really awful). Captain America is great because it's set during WWII America and had some good cinematography. Can't wait for the next round of movies and the next Avengers! In the meantime, the new Spider-Man and Dark Knight Rises should fill the comic book void.
