Movies

Ah, but that's why I referred only to the first film, which presents, oh, maybe fifteen principal characters.

Plainly AVNGR is meeting some people's standards; but I've never read any of the comics, so I don't know if the source material has in it somewhere a deep premise where interest and interesting characters can take root, or only a "transformers" premise where it's the fun of watching big stuff threatened and damaged, but babies and puppies are ultimately rescued.

Who would've figured that Whedon would be such a failure at filming the action sequences? Or developing any characters at all? goodvibe61 May 13, 02:05

from the creator of Firefly? mickpix May 13, 02:20

Finally, someone else understands. {nm} Dave3626 May 13, 02:22

Tempted to call some people here stupid.. idrom May 14, 05:10

It truly is a dull film. Especially the first half hour. But we're in the wrong... It's a hit :-) {nm} JMT-NL May 13, 03:51

Bet you guys will love Battleship {nm} austpow May 13, 08:38

haha... the thing is: I really liked Battleship. Saw it two weeks ago (NL). Superior to Avengers IMHO {nm} JMT-NL May 13, 08:43

Yeah, Avengers was boring and otherwise terrible. Only the climax had any life and it was also the most generic part of the film. {nm} jmr May 13, 09:58

I haven't seen AVNGR, but the number of characters wasn't a barrier to the success of "The fellowship of the ring," for example. {nm} second gary May 13, 06:17

LOTR was also 7.5 hours long theatrically spread over 3 movies. :) {nm} Posting Police 2k May 13, 06:21

Nut monkeys. I keep forgetting to undo that handle. {nm} Paul2k May 13, 06:22

They have their own movies? {nm} PRodQuanta May 13, 08:03

Well, except for Robin Hood and the spy {nm} PRodQuanta May 13, 08:04

DC fan? Bitter much? {nm} kydem May 13, 13:26

Not at all. Bitter in that the movie was very disappointing? Yes. I have nothing to gain or lose from it. But disappointed that it was weak. {nm} goodvibe61 May 13, 22:58

Failure at filming action sequence? How? (some spoilers) nicadmous May 14, 10:56
