Holy fuck! That's amazing!

I wish I could see it one more time in theaters but I'm low on money and I prefer save to watch Prometheus in a couple of weeks. Now we'll have to wait for the DVD/Blu-Ray I hope it brings a lot of cool special features.

So is it pretty much established canon now that the only solution they need to beat somebody is to piss off Banner and just have him rage mode the problem away? It sucks but to me it seems like everyone is completely overshadowed by The Hulk now, and anything that's a problem for him is either going to be gimmicky or should just completely annihilate the rest of the team, barring Thor.

Sorry Spidey, your movie won't be as great as The Avengers. But I hope it'll be entertaining at least.

This movies is so over hyped. Yeah it's good but based on all the praise it didn't meet my expectations, story or action wise. I left feeling dissapointed and I'm pretty sure Spider-man or Dark Knight rises will be better then The Avengers. It was pretty much a straight forward plot with no real twist and no sense of suspense.

So you're saying: "plot twist=good movie", then you must be a huge fan of M. Night Shyamalan. I know the Avengers plot was kind of generic, but that doesn't mean it was a bad movie, it's the way that the story is told (using great actors, cool and witty dialogue and the cgi effects and the visuals serving the story and not the opposite) that makes The Avengers a great movie.

Sorry to hear that you felt this way. Most people find this to be an excellent film. It is currently the third largest grossing movie of all time. Maybe you should try watching it again?

everything he said was correct and all these statistics prove are that the majority of people have sub-par taste in cinema, which isn't surprising anyway

Haha, no. You missed the part where I said it was a good movie just not number 1 movie of all time good. It was too predictable and the action can't hold a candle to movies like The Raid Redemption and thats saying a lot considering the Avengers is based off comic book super heroes. The story wasn't THAT great yeah they had their moments like when the team was in a heated debate with each others ethics but aside from that the trailer pretty much told me everything I should expect. And the action wasn't very inspired it was all flashy but left no real impact aside from the Hulk. They treated the action scenes like a joke which did well from a comical stand point but there was barely an action scene that left me in awe.

Nah I paid enough attention the first time this movies cashcow is the fact that this is the first Marvel movie featuring multiple popular heroes nothing more nothing less. Also I was wrong about The Amazing Spiderman being better, I like The Avengers a little more.

I don't Know what pisses me off more the fact that Titanic made the list or the fact that it's 3D counterpart was some how better then the original.

It is still in theaters if you want to check out the true 3D effects. DVD never does 3D justice.

Avengers 3D wasn't really impressive. I watched it in 2D the second time and it was better that way, especially the battle between Cap, Thor and Iron Man; that scene was pretty dark in 3D.

I agree that scene was dark, but the majority of the film in 3D was bright and vivid.
