Fantastic flick. I laughed a few times till my sides ached. You all know the scenes.


I heard about the 2nd post credits scene, but they don't have it for the european release, and I can't find it on youtube.

Saw The Avengers over the weekend, and like many here absolutely loved it. One of my favorite movies ever.

And this is precisely why I hate the Oscars...... clearly this is an epic movie, shattering box office records, people obviously love it... and outside of some technical awards for sound or special effects, has ZERO chance of winning an award.

Take a look at the list of all time top box office LINK and look at how many "geek" movies are on that list.... they dominate the list. Avatar, Harry Potter, Transformers, LOTR, Pirates of the Caribbean, Avengers....... These are clearly the movies people want to see... the ones they are willing to pay money to see, even multiple times, in the theatre. It's ridiculous that in a movie this epic, with writing this phenomenal, there will likely be no recognition from the "Academy".

The biggest 2nd weekend take in history. It is on pace to break the all-time box office champ, Avatar, but that may be a tough milestone to make.
It is currently the 11th biggest money maker. It may have already exceeded The Dark Knight. By the end of next week, it should be about the 4th biggest grossing movie in history. And that's after less than a month in world wide release.
Not looking like it's slowing down either. They could have made it crappy and it would have done well. They made it awesome and word of mouth is propelling it to EPIC.

Yeah, Superhero movies just don't get much respect from the Oscars.

Dark Knight should have won best picture. But then there is alot of politicking that goes in the Oscars and Christopher Nolan doesn't take part in those games.

Dark Knight was hands down the best film of 2008 - and wasn't even nominated!

The Oscars don't matter anymore. There are plenty of different awards based on FAN voting and recognition that are climbing in popularity and credibility. Best Picture may be the big thing (for now), but if I were Whedon, I'd prouder of the shitload of awards coming my way from the MTV Movie Awards and other Fan-based competitions like the Crying Monkey Award at the Beijing Film Festival

Aye, I'm with you. I loved all of the LotR movies, but I think MaCtFSotW (LOL) should have got something.

Not in the slightest.

This.
Nolan's Batman is better, but Burton changed Batman forever. You have to look at the Burton Batman movies in historical perspective to truly appreciate them and see what they did for Batman, DC, and Comic book movies in general. They took a child's comic and made them in to proper mature entertainment.

I wonder how much Whedon is making off this movie?

If it's a percentage, I'd bet he's making more than enough to soothe the pain of Academy rejection a bit.

It is a summer popcorn movie, nothing more. Every summer there are one or two just like it.

The Academy goes for "artsy" films, not popcorn action flicks

I'm also not crazy about The Dark Night. I loved The Avengers.

Saw it 3d at the Alamo last week (on travel). Took the wife and crew to it on Mother's day. Even our 14 month old seemed to enjoy most of it (but the Hulk scared him a little when he roared.

fwiw it worked out better than I had planned, as since I saw it once, I could take the baby when he got upset to the lobby and did not feel like I was missing much. That said - Ended up spending $85 on this movie - actually not too bad. I bet I spent $65 taking my step-daughter and a friend to hunger games after they loaded up on snacks.
––
anyway, favorite Superhero movie to date. Really enjoyed it.

Good movie.

Samuel L Jackson sported a M&P full size.

Everyone else had Glocks (Scarlett Johansson, Nick Fury's 2nd in command, and the NYPD from what I remember). I didn't see any other M&P's.

Interesting..............I wonder how much that cost S&W.

And this is precisely why I hate the Oscars...... clearly this is an epic movie, shattering box office records, people obviously love it... and outside of some technical awards for sound or special effects, has ZERO chance of winning an award.

Take a look at the list of all time top box office LINK and look at how many "geek" movies are on that list.... they dominate the list. Avatar, Harry Potter, Transformers, LOTR, Pirates of the Caribbean, Avengers....... These are clearly the movies people want to see... the ones they are willing to pay money to see, even multiple times, in the theatre. It's ridiculous that in a movie this epic, with writing this phenomenal, there will likely be no recognition from the "Academy".


Return of the King won for 2003 - and arguably shouldn't have, not against Master and Commander.


Thats because it won for all three films. More politics...



The Oscars don't matter anymore. There are plenty of different awards based on FAN voting and recognition that are climbing in popularity and credibility. Best Picture may be the big thing (for now), but if I were Whedon, I'd prouder of the shitload of awards coming my way from the MTV Movie Awards and other Fan-based competitions like the Crying Monkey Award at the Beijing Film Festival


I winder how much Whedon is making off this movie?

If it's a percentage, I'd bet he's making more than enough to soothe the pain of Academy rejection a bit.


Enough to fund a Serenity sequel?

beat me to it.



Forget a sequel. I want the series picked back up like the movie does not exist. Not going to happen but we can dream.

not possible. all of the actors are 12 years older now and some are quite a few pounds heavier **cough** mal **cough**

watched it for the 2nd time this past weekend, fantastic movie. The comedy was unexpected but welcomed. Proves that people will still pay good money for a good product. Hollywood needs to stop blaming torrents and file sharing for their low box office receipts and put out a better product.

all of those claims the MPAA makes about low receipts due to torrents is BS. hollywood has been taking in record amounts over the last few years even with the economy taking a dump

Saw the Avengers over the weekend in 3D. Great movie. Definite buy on BluRay.
That said I'm tired of these 5mins of credits and the little tidbits at the end. Movie was already over 2hrs even though time flew by.

As for TDK. I thought the movie stunk myself. Tried watching it again and still didn't like it and think Ledgers death is what made it more popular.

A note related to Hollywood profits...

Captain America BluRay was 35 dollars at Target today.

Mark my words, soon we will hear of some rep from the MPAA commenting about declining disc sales and trying to blame it on torrents, when they are too thick to realize their pricing structure is asinine. You can't assume a BluRay makes a movie worth 5-10 dollars more, or make a movie 3D and think it's worth an extra 10 dollars on top of that. People just won't buy.

at least the more meaningful of the 2 scenes happened only a couple minutes into the credits
the 2nd one is kind of meh anyway and not worth waiting for

I thought the last scene at the end of the credits was funny, but they should have done more, because of the long wait through all the credits.

Wasn't she a smoking hottie? I hope her character is recurring.

hope so too

I took my seven year old and he was fine.


We took our son which is 3 almost 4 and he loved it. He was on the edge of his seat the whole time, despite not feeling well with a stuffy nose.

The Thanos bit has me worried. He's legendary villian in 616, but he wasn't really the same in ultimate. Hope they at least do an amalgum. The infinity gems would probably be too much for a movie, but it would be cool. Can't remember if there's an adam warlock in the ultimate universe. Bar none my favorite villian. Ultron 7 on is my runner up.

Wonder if that ones almost a wink at the rumors of RD Jr being the anonymous net poster who's spilling the beans on other Hollywood types skeletons over the last year.

There was a thread about it a while ago
