The Avengers

There’s probably been a lot of chatter about this movie on the bloggers sphere and tonight it’s my turn. I should be writing, I’ve got three deadlines looming and I can’t say that I’m not a little freaked out by it all.
I’ve been trying to take the pressure off and I’ve been succeeding, I write because I love it and I can’t picture doing anything else with my life. Anyway back to the point.
This movie ticked all the boxes for me, it had sexy men in it and it satified my inner fan girl. I couldn’t drag my eyes from the screen, there’s was one, really brief moment when the whole team stood together and all I could think of was Joss Wheldon has done an amazing job. I used to read a lot of comic books and never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I’ll see Thor and the Hulk fighting. It was like he was able to successfully morph a comic onto the big screen and we know how easy it is for Marvel to fuck it up.
The breakout characters for me was the Hulk and Black Widow. The Hulk kicked arse and Mark Ruffalo (probably not how you spell his last name) was perfect as him, the transition scenes between Banner and the Hulk were seamless and organic, you could believe that this green beast stood with his follow Avengers. The Black Widow was interesting, manipulative and stood on her own two feet in a group of kick arse men.
It’s obvious that this is a film made for the fans by a fan. I can’t wait to see the sequel. Now back to work, those deadlines aren’t going to meet themselves.
