The A V E N G E R S directed by Joss Whedon

Right off the top I have to say I'm in low-level shock that I actually just watched a major motion based on Marvel Comics' Avengers.

It's been a long time since I watched a movie that left me wondering how they did it, but I've got to say I'm still wondering as I write this..

Joss Whedon has somehow managed to direct or produce the two best movies so far this year...
..and to think Warners pulled the plug on his Wonder Woman project ...yipes

Regardless, I suspect that the bar has been officially raised...

..if not by the overall awesome-ness of the entire thing, then definitely by the fact that the Hulk beats the living shit out of Loki.

Very very impressive.

My daughter ,Hannah, who paid for me to go, thinks maybe 10 times in the theater will dofor her. I have to own it! O my what a perfect movie. favorite moment, Hulk buddy punching Thor, and the line"I'm angry all the time"
Note Mr Wedon includes a key and often forgotten character, in the form of Harry Dean Stanton's commissionaire, the unflappeable sage, "Buddy you've got a condition" and helpful....that's us

Well said, Poster Girl - so glad you saw it ..and with Hannah - awesome.

Hulk kinda stole the show, and you know me - I love Harry Dean..
