So I went and saw the Avengers on opening weekend and holy s#@%!! It was amazing! One of the best movies to come out this year! It completely earned all the money it made opening weekend, shattering box office records by bringing in a haul over over $200 million in just the first three days.
I wish I had been able to long into my website right after seeing it so I could have written up a review right then, but I have been having some website issues and couldn’t log in. And since most people have seen it already, allow me to simply highlight some of the best parts.
1) Each character got about the same amount of screen time, and I loved every single one of them. Joss Whedon created yet another kick-ass female character in Black Widow, and he gave her the most human moment in the entire film. With an entire cast of male heroes, her character stood out from the crowd and I loved her character. She’s my new favorite superhero. =D
2) The story, while simple, never got dull or boring. There were only two main battles but they were intense and full of twists and adrenaline that left me sitting on my seat wondering what was going to happen.
3) There was a casualty in the movie that I did not see coming, and it made me very sad, but at the same time I am glad they did it, because with the amount of destruction and damage in this film it would have been entirely unrealistic if everyone had made it out alive. And surprisingly it wasn’t Joss Whedon’s idea to kill the character! *cough* Wash *cough*
Those are really the main highlights of the movie, at least that I can think of right now. But I think one of the best things about this movie is what happened during opening weekend. Joss Whedon, who is always so humble even in the midst of huge success, came out on his website Whedonesque and thanked all of his fans for making the Avengers such a huge success. What an awesome guy, right? *tear*
Thank you, Joss Whedon, for being amazing, and for creating what will probably be the biggest hit film of 2012!
Recently in an interview Joss Whedon was asked who would win a fight between Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the Avenger’s Black Widow (Natasha Romanoff). Since he knows both characters extremely well, having created and written for the Buffy the Vampire Slayer television show and writing and directing the upcoming Avenger’s movie, he answered with this:
Buffy would go easy at first, but as soon as Natasha popped her with a Widow Sting, she’d start bringing some slayer brawn to the fray. Natasha’s fast, but a couple of good connects and she’s wobbling, possibly something broken — she whips out her glock and now Buffy’s dodging — right where Natasha wants her. Natasha shoots the cable holding the steel barrels and they tumble onto Buffy, nearly burying her — Buffy just arcs out of the way, grabbing the splintered cable and swinging directly onto Natasha, a bullet grazing her cheek as her feet land hard on the Russian’s shoulders, sending her back flat – crack! – on the floor, Buffy wrenching the gun away and tossing it, fist ready for the final strike. Natasha, struggling to stay conscious, says the fight’s over. Buffy agrees, but Natasha explains: She poisoned Buffy hours ago. That waitress that brought her salad …? Natasha smiles. The poison is dormant — ’til it’s activated by adrenaline. Buffy’s eyes narrow. “Too bad I didn’t use any.” Wham! Natasha’s out for the count, and Buffy’s heading — slowly — to Willow for a mystical cleanse.
That’d be my first guess.
The man is amazing. And that is why I shall forever be a fan of his.
There seems to be a new trend out lately as people get more and more into watching movie trailers online. Companies are now releasing teasers of a trailer to draw in more interest before releasing the full length trailer for a movie.
They did it with the new Total Recall, and now they are doing it with Looper, a new scifi flick starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis.
Looper has a very interesting concept behind the movie: what would happen if you had to travel into the future to kill your future self.
Check out the teaser below:
The full-length trailer comes out in three days, so keep any eye out.
The newest trailer for Prometheus came out today and it is so epic and inspiring!
After the first trailer for this film came out, there was a lot of speculation that it was a prequel to the Alien Saga, especially since the project is helmed by Ridley Scott himself, the man who directed the original Alien movie. With this new trailer, I think it’s pretty obvious that it is, but it also looks like it is so much more than that.
