    I think I prefer all of the individual Marvel films bar Iron Man 2 to this.

    I was bored this afternoon, and I have an unlimited card, so I thought I would give it a watch in 3D too. The 3D is alright throughout (from someone who hates 3D), it only looks a little shit on some bits in the final 3rd.

    Perhaps you should put in for the job to direct the sequel then ...

    Just what were you expecting of this film Mr. Aargh?

    Ah, I didn't think it was amazing but because I'm not a film writer and director my opinion is wrong.

    Enjoyed this but it's not as good as some people make out, felt slow at times and could easily have lost 20mins to make it tighter, went a bit A Team'ish towards the end with big explosions and people getting out of wrecked cars unscathed!

    Nah, your opinion is yours, but I feel you'll find yourself in a minority with this one. It was awesomeness personified as far as I'm (and many people are) concerned. The best superhero film I've ever seen, quite frankly.

    The balance of all the different characters coupled with the superbly directed action sequences are all it needs to get it to that level. Coupled with the the humour and, well, you've got something pretty special.

    Oh and for a post-process 3D film, the 3D was very nicely done.

    But apparantly you are extremely qualified to say that people who think the film was more than '2 hours of people punching each other' are wrong.

    People can't have an opinion on something without any other opinion being wrong these days.

    Where did I say other people were wrong? I haven't seen anyone actually say why it was more than that to them anyway.

    You irritating smear of retard.

    By rights, this really should have been a complete mess, but Whedon nailed it. Nobody felt underused, great performances all round, lots of spectacle & some genuine laugh out loud moments.

    Really pleasant surprise & a thoroughly entertaining couple of hours.

    The humour, the brilliant action sequences, the skillful handling of an ensemble cast, and the fact that Donner's Superman has always been massively overrated.

    I'm having a hard time deciding which I actually prefer more - Avengers or Dark Knight. Both are awesome, and totally different in tone. I think they're sort of equal for me atm, for different reasons.

    vs the lack of character development, no interesting threat, lack of motivation from the threat and a collection of the most 2 dimensional heroes ever assembled.

    Lack of motivation? Did you watch Thor?

    Admittedly the film sort of relies on the audience having watched the previous films, but it it quite explicit about Loki's motives nontheless.

    Superman is a shit, unrelatable character. Too powerful.

    Whereas Thor, the God of Thunder and The Hulk who can beat up the God of Thunder are entirely relatable.

    Did I watch a completely different film to see the character motivation in this film?

    Thor = fish out of water.

    Hulk = someone who is constantly battling their inner feelings.

    One thing Marvel has always done better than DC is that they give their characters flaws that make them relatable.

    Just got back from my second viewing. This time in 3D. What a fucking crock of shit 3D is. Except when it uses the proper cameras from the start.

    As for Superman being shit, the first two Superman films are ace. And the John Williams theme is better than the ones for Raiders and Star Wars.

    Edited by beastmaster at 00:23:17 29-04-2012

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    But who is also so damn powerful that there is no credible threat so any time he is in peril is a huge deus ex machina.

    Superman = feelings of alienation and being the last of his kind, constantly struggling between the choice of having to live with phenomenal powers yet yearning to just shrug off his Kryptonian side and just be part of humanity.

    See, I can summarise characters in pithy sentences too.
