       One thing that bugged me, though... They included the scene of Hulk catching Iron Man in the trailers, so we already knew what would happen when that scene came. Kind of a let down.   
       I haven't kept up with television or anything, so I hadn't even seen the trailers for the movie.

    Hey MPAA, Look! When you produce a movie that isn't absolute shit it sells well! Imagine that!

    And yet they're still going to bitch about piracy.
    Uncle GabeN was right, god damnit why can't everyone just listen to him.

    I read tons of Marvel comics as a kid and I've been dying to see this.

    I'm honestly not surprised it's doing so well. I hear people talking about it all over the place. And considering how many popular movies have led up to this, it's understandable.

    The Avengers had a nice mix of action and comedy. Parts of it made me laugh harder than some full-out comedy movies.

    I considerably never watch television. I just watched them when they came out on YouTube.

    You can use the spoiler tags to post spoilers you know. You don't have to hide vague sentences that are not actually spoilers..

       "I AM A GOD, AND SUCH FIGHTING IS BELOW ME, AND I-"

    Hulk then proceeds to beat him senseless like he's Bam-bam.

    People have apparently been raving endlessly about Hunger Games, but when I finally saw that, I was disappointed, especially in comparison to the hype.

    Avengers made up for it, though.

    i can understand people seeing a film because of a large marketing campaign, but this entire thread is filled with 'best film ever 11/10'
    out of alot of the places on the internet, i thought fp would be blaming this film for the death of cinema or some hyperbolic garbage

    I usually don't go for movies, but this was absolutely fantastic. I saw Captain America when it came out and I was impressed, but this absolutely blew me away. Definitely go see it.

    I was honestly surprised how well they managed to weave the aliens into the storyline and the payoff when they finally appear was a great visual treat as well. Robert Downey Jr. was also great in his role as Iron Man and so was Stellan Skarsgård even though his role was pretty minor.

    I usually hate super hero movies. They're always stupid and uninteresting to me.

    But Avengers was fucking incredible and I have not a single complaint. Super hero movie or not it was great.

    For all the movies that come with a huge hype and come to a huge wave of disappointment, The Avengers had a huge hype and actually lived up to the hype. One of the best movies to come out in years.

    Avatar is worth buying it on Blu-Ray, if you have a very nice TV. The quality and visuals are fucking amazing, other than that, it's eh

    As for Avengers, I haven't seen it yet, probably will wait on it. I'm not into the super hero shit

    My friend randomly invited me to come see this with him last Wednesday even though I had never even considered watching it before.
    I am so fucking glad I went, one of the best movies I've ever seen.

    Going to see this next weekend. The only other movie that I saw leading up to this was Captain America, am I going to be totally lost during this movie?
    The only film I saw beforehand was the original Iron Man, wasn't a problem for me.

    Do you guys really honestly think it was amazing? I understand that it's down to personal preference, but to me it seemed like a stock standard superhero film. It didn't do anything new for the genre. What it did do, it did competently (the action scenes were fun).

    Hulk was well implemented though. That puny god thing and the 'hulk... smash' part were good.

    Compared to Spiderman or the Nolan Batman movies, it was completely forgettable for me. Well done on the money though, I suppose it's well enough earned.

    No, the only two things I think you'll get confused about is the villain and its origins (if you don't read Thor comics).

    Also, you get to see what happens when Thor's hammer hits C.A.'s shield.
    That moment struck me as really un-Thor-like. I mean, if that kind of power is released when the hammer hits the shield, it would have obliterated CA if it had actually hit him. An unprovoked, possibly fatal attack like that doesn't seem like something Thor would do at all.

    Come on i loved avatar and i know its basically Pocahontas and Atlantis The Lost Empire combined but I still loved it.

    Edited:

    Yep it was stupid move that they don't bring back Tobey Maguire they would have earned even more money for sure.

    Another thing that bothers me is that a crapload of people hate on spider-man 3 because of the things like venom dies too fast or emo peter I'd personally say it was equal as spider-man 2.

    None of the Spider Man movies nor the Fantastic Four movies nor the X-Men movies are a part of the current Marvel Movies canon, and so none of those characters will appear as Avengers at any point.
    Also, Tobey McQuire is no longer Spiderman after the abysmal third movie. That's why they have the new kid playing Peter. Its a complete reboot, even going back to how he had to use the mechanical web shooters.

    Yea i guess but i liked the third movie more than 2 -.- oh and please the new guy can go suck on a sock I prefer my spider-man to be un-serious.

    J. K. Simmons isn't in there either which will probably won't make me want to watch the movie that's for sure.
