The story and themes that Nolan induces into his film are meant to make the audience think more after the movie closes.


True, but that doesn't necessarily make the movie more enjoyable for all viewers. Me, I like most of the Marvel movies better than The Dark Knight. I know I'm in the minority, but I'd rather watch a lighter-toned movie over and over than a long and exhausting one.

Got back from the Marathon not too long ago. It was only 5 movies (they cut out Hulk), but its ok. I still had a good time and our theater wasn't too crowded. They handed out the special glasses to the IMAX and RDX folks but a guy was kind enough to give me a pair as we were leaving :)

It was fun getting to know other ppl in the theater and talking about what we liked, didn't like and generally nerding out :)

We didn't get ANY previews at all...I was kind of disappointed cuz I wanted to see TDKR preview :( but oh well.

@ITDEFX - Which AMC did you go to? It looks oddly familiar


AMC tyson's corner mall, VA

Although it was just the previews, I feel like kinda jipped that they showed previously viewed trailers instead of the newest ones. That's been happening a lot in my area...like I would get to see the newest trailers ONLINE and get the old trailers infront of new movies that weekend.

I would have loved to seen the reaction to the expendables 2 last night. I am sure everyone would have cheered at Arnold's "I'm back!" line...the reaction would have been worth it... heck even the GI Joe 2 trailer should have been on here.

Either theater owners are becoming lazy or studios aren't pushing the trailers fast enough.

Sucks for anyone coming the last hour before the movie starts trying to find a good seat...everyone around me was lying to people coming late saying "that seat is taken" next to them. But I guess that is what you get for coming in late to one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year.

Sucks for

Movie was fantastic, 3D was fantastic, and Scarlett Johannson was fantastic.

Also glad Cobie Smulders got some good (if limited) action scenes.

WOOO!

Agreed - different strokes for different folks. I prefer Nolan-esque type of films but I'm not sure TDKR would be a bigger box office smash over the Avengers. Whenever somebody chimes in with a different comic movie in the Avengers thread there's bound to be a debate to arise.

I'm taking work off today to watch Avengers, bitches :D

So after seeing it, I can honestly say that it's my favorite super hero film. Whedon really did an excellent job playing with each character/actor's strengths. I loved just about all the dialogue,

I'm going to steal this line from someone else, but...

For the 1st time in a long time, I actually felt that I was watching a real superhero comic book movie.


It's not a suspense thriller, it's not trying to be dark and edgy. It was just a fun comic book film.

I loved how each character had their own signature moment in the film.

Spoiler


Me and my friends came out of the movie planning to see it again 8-)

Oh yeah, saw it in 3D and while it really didn't do much for the 1st hour of the film, the last hour or so with all the battles is a must see in 3D!

I still can't believe that there's no movie tie-in game. WTH is up with that? The concept that was leaked a few months ago looks pretty cool.

I really loved the movie and will see it again and will continue to see marvel movies well into the future.... but I'm concerned the more casual movie-goer and less of comic book enthusiats will give up on them after a certain point. Anyone else think the superhero movie bubble is due to burst sooner or later?

Maybe the Hulk is just better with other big characters around.

Or maybe they need to make a Hulk movie that's not about him running away from the government.

Also Ruffalo>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Norton.

here is a question for you comic nerds...
If the Hulk is now part of the Avengers....does that mean he is pardoned and no longer being hunted by Gen. Ross and the military?

I thought they made it clear that SHIELD was tracking him and keeping tabs on him, but not hunting him?

Yes I remembered that scene and I did remember that they were preventing other groups from finding him..so I assumed she was talking about Ross and his team......... But see now everyone knows where is Banner

Yeah, I have to disagree there -- I was expecting (and sort of hoping for) a tie-in game, but I don't like what I see in that trailer.

Also Ruffalo>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Norton.


Absolutely. I had no idea who Mark Ruffalo was before hearing he was cast as Banner, but I fucking loved him in this movie. He did an excellent job.

I didn't see them at my theater, but I did the marathon, so they probably held them for people gong to the single movie.

During one of the bathroom breaks, I saw an Acura/Avengers tie-in going on in the theater next door. It was a screening of The Avengers, and everyone that went in got a canvas bag with some sort of keychain and a mini poster. One of the people in my theater came back with one in hand, and said they had extras -- the theater cleared out as people went to snag them. Sadly, they were gone before I was able to get one :cry:

Mark Ruffalo was super charming in 13 Going on 30, which is a surprisingly good female take on the movie Big. Definitely worth a watch, especially with a significant other.

Yeah he was fantastic. Hulk stole the show, but Ruffalo nailed it with his quiet intensity.

My local theater was one of them that had the all day marathon and they gave those out to the first 100. I was tempted to keep mine wrapped up to sell but I'd rather have used them. I enjoyed the movie, especially the after credits scene. It was an interesting movie in the fact that you could hear a pin drop during one scene and then a split second later have a roaring cheer go through the crowd. There were also some premovie 2 minute items shot with Coulson not really explaining the characters but giving a short little rundown of the character and his thoughts. There was also a van out in front of our theater all decked out with the SHIELD logo and what not. Wish I would've gotten a picture.

Thanks for everyone using spoiler tags!!!! Avoided all the spoilers but pumped this is sounding so good. Missed seeing it this afternoon after getting stuck in traffic and have plans tonight so it's 1st viewing in the morning for me. I don't go to the theatre very often haven't been besides junk the gf/dates wanted to see since Captain America IIRC, I guess i'm a Marvel guy lol.

Sucks no game along with this movie, i'm a sucker for super hero games they are usually dumb fun.
