The Avengers

Yes! Finally it’s out! The Avengers gag reel. Pre-released by Marvel, thankfully, it gives an insight that shows that these guys (and gals) indeed had their fun. Continue reading

After a day at the office I took a look at a new sci fi mag in a bookstore and even though I haven’t bought it a tiny little blurb caught my eye and I just *had* to take out my new smart phone (yepp, it’s still smarter than me ;)) and surf the net to look something up…well…you really draw a certain amount of attention on yourself when you laugh out loud in public places… *enter innocent whistle here*
Why I had to laugh?! Watch for yourself…
Hulk Smash Loki: The Avengers Epic Battle

A little warning upfront: This is long. It has four pages in word.

As mentioned (several times *coughs*) before, Loki is the character I’ve taken most interest in when it comes to the Marvel movieverse. Even though the other characters are very interesting and come along with a lot potential, the adopted Odinson, especially since he is supposed to be the villain you shouldn’t root for, has a presence one can’t resist. Certainly I couldn’t.
Even more so as he’s not your typical villain, the one who’s evil, period. Actually, one could claim him to be simply misled and looking for love… or a hug, as Tom Hiddleston says himself.
I’m usually rather straight when it comes to my likings – there really has to be a good reason for me to not root for the hero at the end of the day. I might like the bad guy somewhere along the way through a story, but in the end, I’ll always wait and hope for the right one to win.
With AVENGERS, and then also THOR, it was different.

After watching THE AVENGERS, I knew I couldn’t just leave it at that. Such an awesome movie deserves research on my end – meaning, I wanted to know more about the background.
Buying THOR was never a question; not of ‘if’ anyways, and also not really of ‘when’. Well. I think I did it, like, two days after I’d been to the cinema? 😀 Around the same time I bought a BD player… and thus also the THOR Bluray. Yep. Gooood decision.
Watching the movie with a friend, we both agreed that we definitely have to brush up on our knowledge about Norse mythology. I admit that I initially had my problems understanding the movie. So I unfortunately (I’m so not kidding. Coughs.) had to watch the movie again. And again. Aaaaaaaand… again. I even watched it with Audio Commentary by Kenneth Branagh. I just can’t get enough of it. Damn it being so awesome. Continue reading

Watching THE AVENGERS for the first time was kind of like being thrown into cold water. I really had my problems understanding the whole thing. The only characters I knew were Tony Stark & Pepper Potts, Nick Fury & Phil Coulson, and Natascha Romanoff. The Hulk I knew from stories, but nothing more. Everything else was new to me.
So when you have a movie that starts with a strange experiment, with a guy being called Hawk(eye) and sitting under the ceiling, with a scientist who’s obviously important and works on said experiments, and with another guy suddenly appearing after a bit of lightning, you of course get confused.
That was my first impression, of the beginning at least. My first general impression of the movie was: Can’t say I get it all, but it was definitely a nice watch. And I would watch it again. Continue reading
