Finally saw Avengers: Age of Ultron!

I really liked it for the big, confusing mess it was. Major spoilers under the cut ...

All in all, good movie! I was very pleased.

So, The Avengers rocked, and that is all. I've seen it twice already! Trying to explain the reasons to rational people has been impossible. So I'll just list for you my Top Five Reasons Why The Avengers Rocked:

5) Scarlett Johanson as Black Widow. Both the actress and the character held their own. I loved how Black Widow was the only girl on the team. When I was a teenager, I created my own comics and dreamed of writing for Marvel. But more importantly, I dreamed of being the only girl superhero on an all-boy team. Make of that what you will. 

4) Agent Coulson. He's appeared in all the Avengers prequels. He's the ultimate bureaucrat. And he's so cuddly. I can't find a video without spoilers, so just take my word.

3) Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk. The Hulk was the only pre-Avengers movie I haven't seen. But please believe, if he'd've been Bruce Banner instead of Edward Norton, I would have been first in line.

2) Loki! I do like a villain who takes joy in his work. I credit Joss Whedon for Loki.

And the thing that made me weep ... you're going to think this is weird ... I can't believe I'm writing this ...

1) The Avengers spent a good 30 movie minutes laying waste to a fair-sized city.

No, come back! You don't understand! Look at the picture above. Nary an issue of the Avengers comic went by where our heroes and heroines did not significantly lower the local property value. Alien creatures slammed into airports! Giant monsters battered with train cars! Skyscrapers punctured with laser beams! And every issue contained a panel much like this picture, right down to the rubble-strewn streets. I told you I wanted to write for Marvel! They were total geniuses over there.

Sigh. Well, in other news, I'm happy to report I am still in the game over at the Snupin_LDWS challenge! There are some awesomely talented writers participating; it's a bit intimidating, but I have to say I'm learning a lot from them on the art of the drabble.  Please drop by, read and vote this week!
