valiant_queene: (Avengers)
So, I saw The Avengers yesterday. I wanted to post something about it then, but if I had, it would have been comprised completely of exclamation points and capslocked gibberish.

Confession time. My top twenty-five favorites movies are Disney movies, 50s musicals, and black and white films. Except for the fact that I have a small weakness for superhero films. Especially Marvel.

So, when The Avengers came out on Friday I was excited. I mean I was supersonic squealing, jumping up and down in my chair excited. I've enjoyed all the past Avenger movies, except for any of the Hulk movies which I should see I suppose.

Captain America (LOVED IT!)
Iron Man (loved it)
Thor (so wonderfully awful it made me laugh)
Iron Man 2 (enjoyed it, but not quite as much as the first)

To have all of these in one movie? I was giddy with joy. But also slightly hesitant, because I didn't want it to fail to meet my expectations.

It didn't fail. It blew them out of the water. Everything about it was wonderful. It made me laugh. It made me cry (and the last time I cried at a movie was the end of The Fellowship of the Ring, actually Deathly Hallows now that I think about it, but before that was Fellowship). It made me clap out loud in the theater at the end. It made me squeal in fright (which bugged the heck out of Melete, I can tell you).

Anyway, long story short. If you enjoyed any of the Marvel movies above, The Avengers is worth a see. Also, if you do see it, stay through the credits. There are two clips (THANOS! OMG) that are worth watching.
