I Saw A Superhero Movie

I know. It’s shocking.  I actually went to see the second Avengers movie.

Grant wanted to see the movie, and it was our anniversary, so I was nice and went a long.  That and I’m a huge fan of the actor who did Ultron’s voice. 😀

I’ve been seeing reviews of this movie going around the internets…and I’m at a loss. Everyone seems to love it.

Why? Why? I don’t understand.

I didn’t hate this movie, I really didn’t (unlike Thor which I really hated),  my feelings were more like meh.  Sure there was some mildly funny parts.

FuryRabbits Alright fine this was freaking hilarious, though I was seemed to be the only one in the theater who thought so. 😀

The plot was just the same as all the other superhero movies.

Bad guys comes, bad and good fight each other, enter buildings collapsing, things blowing up, good guys win.   Oh, and the cliche, waaay over used “they are trying to turn us together but we are a team!”  The End.

*Sigh*  I was bored.  The plot wasn’t moving, I wasn’t engaged.  I mean we all knew no one important was going to die.

See this is one of my problems with the superhero movies that come out today.  There’s never a chance someone important might die, or a chance that the good guys might loose.  If I know they are going to win…then what’s the point? I don’t feel for them, I don’t care if they fight the bad guy.

Another one of my frustrations with this movie is the character development.  Which was hardly there! Gah.  I mean the two new people they brought in, sure they had a sob-story  (which wasn’t very convincing) but we didn’t really get to know their characters.

Sooo…they wanted Stark dead, but they didn’t really seem too angry about it? I’m getting mixed signals here guys.  And don’t get me started on the romances that appeared out of nowhere. Yes I have seen the first Avengers and a few others of the movies, how else would I decided I dislike superheros? Lol

There was one character that I did really like. And that was Ultron.  His character was well done, I mean I think it could have been done better, but he was a good character.  I almost wanted him to win.  Why?  Because he was a rounded character.  We knew what he wanted, he showed and told us what he wanted.  He was funny, I enjoyed that.

Stark: What’s the vibranium for?

Ultron: I’m glad you asked that, because I wanted to take this time to explain my evil plan.

He was a unique bad guy because he didn’t hate humanity.  He honestly didn’t, he was ”helping”.  Granted his helping was misguided, but I enjoyed that about his character. “I know you’re good people. I know you mean well. But you just didn’t think it through. There is only one path to peace… your extinction.”   At one point I even felt sorry for Ultron, the part when he was Black Widow and he says something to the effect of “I have no one else to talk too.”   I thought that was a really good line, especially since now the bad guy monologue makes more sense. 😀

I guess I’ll wrap up here, since this post is getting really long.   So yeah guys, I’m a lot of people are going to disagree with me.  I’m sorry.  I just don’t like superheros I guess.

 

edit: who else saw that Andy Serkis was in this movie?

  1. I can’t believe that you didn’t like Thor! The actor, Chris, is amazing and played his part amazingly well. Though I must say his brother’s part was just as spectacular.

    That Catholic joke was funny! My dad and I laughed. Guess it takes one to know one kind of joke?

    No the plot was not the same. Each movie has its only story; however in the end by one way or another they are connected. You see that through the characters, the cub, and the tidbits that they show after the ending credits. One must stay to watch those.

    Uh…Quicksilver died and I would say that he is pretty important.(getting off the marvel. My dad and I watched Hercules last night, the one with The Rock. Yes the good guys one. But! One of the main heroes died!) (back on topic).

    The Scarlet Witch comes back in the third Captain America movie, so there is still time to get to know her. As for her brother, well he died.

    Stark dead? Who wouldn’t! He can be very condescending sometimes. As for the romance…its a movie its going to happen! As for Hawk eye having a family, that I did not see coming. I always thought him and Natasha would be together, but she seemed to know all about his secret family.

    Advice: relax, enjoy the movie. a movie is meant to take one out of reality, not put them back into it.

    • I hate Thor! Lol. He’s an insult to Norse Mythology and his character development is unbelievable.
      Yes, that’s probably true! Only catholics, or former catholics in my case will get it. lol

      I’m sorry I just don’t agree, it was the same as the others. Sure they through a new tid bit here and there, but the overall plot? No. It was boring. It was the same. I knew what was going to happen before it happened. That’s boring.
      Yeah, I know Quicksilver died, but we didn’t know him! Not really, what are his likes, his dislikes, what is his sense of humor? We don’t know, he wasn’t important enough to the story for us to know. In good story telling, someone important should die, like Thor, or Captain America, or Stark. Someone that you know and lik. These movies just have sucky story telling in my opinion.

      I love Stark, he’s hilarious. He’s got my sense of humor. But what I meant by that was, they should have done a better job showing us that the twins hated him for what he did. But I wasn’t convinced.

      I understand romance happens, it does. I just want it to be believable. It came out of nowhere, and it was unconvincing. Romance is supposed to make you think “Aww, I love them. I want them to be happy together.” Instead it was like “…oookay?

      A movie is supposed to be enjoyable. A movie should make me feel something, make me happy, excited. Its supposed to be make me cheer for the good guys. If it doesn’t do that how am I supposed to enjoy it? Your advice doesn’t really work.
      I’m sorry we disagree on this. Glad you enjoyed the movie though. 🙂 The music was pretty good.

      • There based of the comics for the most part and those go on for ever. I’m not sure if the writer of Thor had Norse Mythology in mind when he wrote it. I remember watch a documentary on Netflix about comic books. You should look it up. On of the comics had its hero killed. People were pretty pissed of about it. I don’t remember which hero it was. If you want to watch a movie where a hero dies watch Hercules, with The Rock.

        • Yeah, I never read the comics, as I don’t like superheroes. But I’m trying to read all the books in Grant and I’s libarary and he has the entire Spiderman series. So yeah.
          Actually, I looked it up, but the writers of Thor did base him off of Nose Mythology. That’s cool, I will have to look for it, I love documentaries. 😀 Okay, I’ll try to find Hercules too.
          I don’t just want people to die, I want a story that’s not cliche, a story that surprises me at the end.

  2. I haven’t seen it yet…mostly because cinemas + me = anxious mess. hee. (Why do they have it up so loud?!) ANYWAY. I do love all the Marvel movies (except Thor and the first Captain America, omg, no to both…*hides*) but I heard this one wasn’t particularly funny! And I CAN’T ship Black Widow nad Hulk! NO. I ship Black Widow and Captain America.

    • It’s an okay movie. I’d even watch it again (for Ultron). Yaaas finally someone agrees on Thor and Captain America. 😀 Why do you not like them?
      I thought Age of Ultron was funnier than the first one, but that could just be me. 😉
      I like the actor who plays Hulk, so I didn’t mind shipping them…the relationship was just so hurried that I couldn’t ship it very much.
