The Avengers

****Spoiler Alerts****



What didn't I love about this movie???  Joss Whedon is the man for this movie.  I have loved him since Firefly.  He is all about character development and made it more than just some cheesy oneliner cookie cutter movie.  I saw how the characters were real and came to life, like Tony poking Bruce to see if Hulk appears.  How Steve is the brainy military man out of the group.  I also didn't know anything about Hawkeye before the movie, he is really bad ass.

There are great geek references like one of the ship controllers playing Galaga instead of working.......called out by Tony.  Then we actually see the controller playing Galaga...AWESOME!!!!  And Tony referring to Hawkeye as Legolas.  The humor in the movie was great, especially after Hulk makes his appearance in the battle scenes with Thor and Loki. 

In the beginning I see them poking fun at each other and pin pointing each other's weaknesses.  Then with the death of Agent Phil you see them bringing out the best in each other.  Great contrast! The turning point is clear and emphasized with silence.  I know what's coming and just can't wait to see them all tear it up on Loki and his army.  I was more than satisfied......cigarette anyone?

I hope there is a sequal, by Joss Whedon and it looks like there might be one.  I don't know who that was at the end of the movie, but I'm guessing Red Hulk.

Superhero Fascination

So when did it all start?  For me it was with a handsome man with strong down home values and a red cape.   This pumped up physical strengh contrasted with his humble and integrity driven personality.  You can't help but admire him and want to be a better person for wanting to be like him.  AAAaaawwwwwwww, I couldn't swoon enough over Superman.  So of course I was too little to know about posters and merchandise so I did the best I could.  I would cut out black and white pictures from TV guide with the article and tape it to my bedroom wall.  Talk to it every night like he was listening to me.  Because at 4 years old you believe the essence of Superman must be in that picture, right? And so it was, the beginning of my superhero fascination.

Soon there was Wonder Woman, Batgirl and Supergirl, which I have been all of these for Halloween, some more than once.  My babysitters, Grandma and Grand Aunt, were forced to watch this Wonder Woman show with me every afternoon.  I don't think they really understood my obsession.  My Mom and Dad at work and me playing around, jumping off of the couch, chairs and sometimes table as Wonder Woman.  There were even a couple time I saved the innocent.  My poor Grand Aunt endured my fantasy by letting me tie her up with belts and rope to a chair just so I, Wonder Woman, could come and save her.  My Grand Aunt never told my Mom for fear of me getting in trouble.

Ahh, the memories.
