    Yeah I mean I'd struggle to kind of back up with examples why Captain America felt like a leader, or worked as the 'leader', but the way the film was paced and its kind of tone just swept you up into 'buying' a lot of things I wouldnt have as easily digested with another film. Im not saying it did this cheaply, or at the expense of internal film logic or anything, it just worked for me.

    Although I havent seen Captain America the film, so I dont know if he is different or they underutilised him or something, but I immediately liked him, even my BLOOD FOR OIL friend who'd never seen any Marvel film before (maybe spiderman, i think thats marvel?), ended up loving him.

    Smulders looks like Maria Hill to me but I can't say she at all projected Hillosity

    but i have an irrational and abiding love for How I Met Your Mother so it didn't bother me

    The only thing that bummed me out about this movie was that I saw it in Vmax and it didnt fill the whole screen, the sides were cut off, which I thought was weird for a new film, I asked the projectorer dude and he said it had something to do with the ratio of the film and their screen not matching up? It annoyed me to no end until I got used to it, thinking of seeing it in 2D on a smaller screen next

    My only issue with the Avengers movie that isn't plot related was the 3D. You could see this film in 2D and it would not detract from the experience at all.

    Plot related spoiler issues (and this is serious spoiler stuff so don't even think about looking if you haven't seen the film:

    Nah I think Red Skull has been the best comic book villain we've had so far in the movies.

    Loki is, however, by a wide margin, the best movie villain we've had so far in the movies, so he wins out.

    So why did this movie get released everywhere else way earlier than the US again?

    Oh shiiiiiiiiiiiiiit with the Iron Man red lasers

    That minute and a half of action where Tony and Rhody rip that Hammeroid force limb for limb is probably the best coreographed super hero fight possible in that time frame. It's brutal, vicious, and FAST. I believe it was story boarded by Genndy Tatarkosky too.

    Yeah it was pretty goddamn beautiful. Definitely made up for the awful action in the first movie.

    Seen lots of claims that it's to fight piracy - that Europe will watch American cam vids, but America won't watch European cam vids. Why they didn't just release it on the same day world wide is a mystery. >.>

    Although, I do love the lil' role reversal going on at IMDb and other movie boards. Usually there's a general "don't come on here if you don't want spoilers" attitude. Right now it's "stop posting spoilers, it's not fair!"

    This Alex Ross thing you talk about interests me greatly!

    Is there any way you can expound on that topic?

  • BlankzillaBlankzilla The Year 198X Being Xtreme to the MaxxRegistered User regular
    Basically a lot of people, me included, think that Ross can do figure drawing just fine but his work has no sense of motion to it whatsoever and thus is poor comic art

    comics aren't meant to look like still images, the art is supposed to flow and feel "alive"

  • BlankzillaBlankzilla The Year 198X Being Xtreme to the MaxxRegistered User regular
    Also I would like to point out that in the last 5 or so years Marvel has put Thor, Iron Man and now (probably) the Ultimate X-Men in Oklahoma

    Yeah they might be in for a shock when the US haul isn't quite as spectacular as they thought because, you know, spoilers and such.

    I really, really doubt people aren't going to buy tickets to the Avengers because the goddamn plot got spoiled

    people want to see the Avengers because it has all the Marvel superheroes teaming up and wrecking shit

    not because of it's daring plot twists and deep narrative

    I doubt the average moviegoer has suffered spoilers
    And even if they have, it wouldn't make them not see the movie

    It's all about the funny dialogue and amazing action

    See I am starting to do a lot of research into what makes great comic book construction as an art form! Although I am not a fan of either Marvel or DC superhero comics (obviously), what I do like is understanding the underlining of the medium as a whole.

    I am well aware of Alex Ross' artwork, but have actually seen very few of the actual books that he's worked on. I've only glanced through a few, but so far the only one that comes to mind is one of those terrible super-crossover yearly events, and I recall it being kind of a pain to go through.


    Is there any way you or another person could PM me a more thorough insight on it by chance?
