    Alright, so I just got back from an early screening (US).


    HOLY SHIT.


    Hulk smashing Loki around was probably the best scene. I don't remember who said it before, but Joss Whedon should just do everything from now on.

    i wanted galactus because fuck the fantastic 4
    I want Ultron. Mainly because I want Ant man and Wasp.
    I also want the Maximoff twins but that would make the roster a bit large, also Fox probably owns the rights to Mutants if they own the rights to the Xmen movies.

    The Delusion of Marvel’s The Avengers

    Previous Marvel Comics superhero movies such as Iron Man, The Hulk, Captain America and Thor were like roughly cut puzzle pieces that looked odd and unfinished by themselves–pretend-movies derived from already established brands. Most of them, particularly Jon Favreau’s dung-colored Iron Man, were poorly directed. Now, fitted together in Marvel’s The Avengers, the superhero tales still don’t quite cohere: instead, each superhero’s traits and powers have been simultaneously inflated yet streamlined (Scarlett Johannson’s Black Widow, barely a cameo in last year’s Captain America, is almost a character here) with the sole intent to overwhelm, not merely entertain. That’s why a corporate brand is part of the title.

    A live-action version of the comic book series about “Earth’s Greatest Super Heroes,” Marvel’s The Avengers is promoted as the ultimate Comic-Con–the franchise of franchises, the movie for which contemporary audiences have been trained to anticipate and genuflect. This whopping sales campaign manipulates immature, undeveloped adolescent taste into the mistaken notion of cultural fulfillment. The Avengers is neither good nor important, yet the more it consummates Marvel Comics’ current strategy to secure the adolescent comic book/graphic novel/video game market, it illustrates Hollywood’s shameless insufficiencies.

    To discuss The Avengers as a story–or even a thrill ride–is delusional. Best to tally some of the actors’ deceits (which parallels the media’s complicit self-deception) as they trivialize the emotional satisfaction that is supposed to come from modernizing myth and legend.

    The Captain America role traps Chris Evans, who was a great tease as the Human Torch, in an uninteresting anachronism–now a truly faded idea of American Exceptionalism. Same holds for the Halloween freakazoids Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Bruce Banner/The Hulk (a CGI’d Mark Ruffalo). Jeremy Renner’s archer Hawkeye seems to be auditioning for Katniss’ evil twin brother in The Hunger Games. As villainous Loki, Tom Hiddleston, who was so moving in Spielberg’s War Horse and Terence Davies’ The Deep Blue Sea, comes closest to giving a performance. He suggests the intense young aspirant Peter O’Toole, though without the glorious voice–and no story details to frame his petulance, just a pretext for the superheroes to fight his plan for world domination. The film’s only probable hero is zillionaire gadgeteer Tony Stark who Robert Downey has finally learned to make his own–using hipster witticisms that lend this basically unhip movie some erratic self-satire.

    Only a capitalist icon with Stark’s endless resources makes sense to an audience of semi-illiterate consumers catered to by the leisure industries and discouraged from interest in characterization, theme or ideas. That’s why Sam Jackson’s Nick Fury can simply watch action from the sidelines, occasionally firing off a gun shot or epithet, pretending to be a leader in his ghetto eye patch. (Insert convenient Obama analogy here.)

    Director Josh Wheedon brings TV squalor (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) to his big screen debut. Wheedon doesn’t have Zack Snyder’s personal style (the elan that at least made Watchmen and Sucker Punch thoroughly idiosyncratic and fitfully compelling). Wheedon directs impersonally, which is to say he manages the proceedings as one runs a fast food joint. This analogy ought to appall the very fast-food patrons who flock to The Avengers yet cannot accept that an artistic enterprise should be more than ground patties of optional substance. Like Wheedon, they can’t tell the difference between art and conviction-less product.

    This proves the brainwashing that has happened to pop audiences in the generations since comic books and TV stole their imaginations from cinema and literature. Much of this tragedy has to do with the impact of television (Wheedon’s background) which has destroyed popular understanding of narrative complexity. Each superhero should represent overcoming some social or personal difficulty (like Eric Bana in Ang Lee’s underrated The Hulk); now they’re just gimmicks. Wheedon simply makes the action go on and on. He has no sense of dramatic build or rising to a peak. He overloads the spectator with one climax after another (imitating Michael Bay angles, particularly the same skyscraper-devouring turbine F/X from the last Transformers flick).

    Unlike the lyrical teen fantasy Chronicle or Neveldine-Taylor’s daring Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance which addressed life, death, morality, Marvel’s The Avengers has little to say other than “Buy me!” Millions of mentally hijacked moviegoers will respond like Pavlov‘s dog, barking “Wow!”


    If you really feel the need to give this guy hits:

    Some schmuck notorious for loving the really awful movies (called norbit one of the years best) and hating the really great movies (see above). It's funny how he's able to justify his reviews.

    Those that don't think he's legally retarded think he just says the most absurd things to get the website he reviews for tons of hits. He gets too much attention, really.

    Edited:

    Basically just take the opposite of whatever score he gives. If he posts a really negative scathing review, you know you've got a winner.

    When I saw this last week a guy came into the cinema dressed in a full Captain America costume. He got a big round of applause, was awesome.

    Come to think of it there was a great atmosphere in there, loads of people with Marvel related shirts obviously excited to see the movie. Was dead silence in there for the entire movie.

    When I saw this there were a large portion of the audience who came alone and looked very sad and lonely.

    Watched it at the cinema today with a group of people that had already seen it once, telling me it was the best film ever ect ect.

    I really enjoyed it all the way through and thought it was great, but it's not the best film iv'e ever seen by a long chalk (best superhero film contender for sure). Everyone i was with seemed horrified by what i said.

       I had to laugh though, some little kid near the back let out a "yes!" as ironman made it back through the portal just as it closed.

    loki said something about    odin needing a lot of energy to send him back to earth. I don't find that weird, but it bothers me that they gave the idea that it'd be almost impossible for him to come back, at the ending of Thor.

    I was just under the impression that he couldn't get back straight away. Even without the Avengers I would have still thought he'd eventually make it back to Earth.

    That wasn't her was it, otherwise she wouldn't have needed those guards to come in and subdue him, plus it wasn't Johansson.

    She was in Iron Man 2 though.

    That guy really knows how to make enemies. In the end, when you criticise, for example, the characters or the story,
    you need to consider that it's a comic movie and that the comics are very old.

    And I think he reached the goal he wanted to achieve, with this negative review: Attention.

    Went to an early employee screening in IMAX 3D of it last night, didn't get out of the theatre until 3, didn't get to sleep until 4, and had to wake up at 6:30 for school.

    I regret nothing.
