The Avengers - What a great movie.

I like the theater, I think its one of those lost beacons, like a time capsule...  A shell of what was meant to be a greater vision, still remarkable contents, but fading from the forefront of memory. 
When I have the time and money, I enjoy the luxury of the theater, it really is a pleasant experience... not everything is "meant" for the theater... but for the most part a great time is sitting in a theater and watching a great film... 

What I was thinking was "how about The Avengers..." 

As I pulled into the movie theater I remember looking at the building and saying to myself, "Well, I wanted to see The Avengers... but at the same time, why do I have this feeling that I am gonna lose $10.00 and 2 hours and 30 min..."  Almost reluctantly, I went in... 


There was practically no one in the theater... heck, even the man behind the counter looked surprised to see me. 

I paid for the tickets and went to the showing, the Avengers in 3D at 10:00 p.m... 

I sat down. 

I never got up for over 2 hours and 30 minutes...

What a great movie!  (sorry, no War Machine though) 

Taking out the nerd inside of me, I made several attempts to argue with myself, in the way "this was supposed to go like this", or "what about this part of the story line"... but every time, I just sat back and really watched the show... and enjoyed. 

Taking in the events of the previous films, "Iron Man", "Thor", "The Incredible Hulk", and Captain America, there was really nothing that needed to be "caught up" with.  The film stood on its own and packed a wallop.  Did I miss Edward Norton as Bruce Banner, of course I did, but interestingly enough...  I got over it...  actually I got over it really quick. 

Elements of the film hit home everywhere... Action was abounding, history and story for the fans, epic fantasy, intrigue. and suspense, even a little romance.. it just kicked butt! 

In total there were about 10 people in the theater and not one of them walked away upset.  I remember going outside the theater after the "final" scene played...  Two guys, obvious fans of the Marvel scene... Jesting back and forth about the when the Hulk finally came out... or when Loki, (and you know who), revealed themselves...  There was really nothing bad to be heard of... simply amazing stuff! 

I don't know what is next in store for the Marvel Movies...  I am a little skeptical about "The Amazing Spiderman" and I really wonder if Robert Downey Jr., and the rest of the crew will be back for "The Avengers 2"... 

But in the same regard all I gotta say is... 

Hulk... Smash! 

Signing off.
