Interesting. I wouldn't have thought there would be a large female audience.

That's just sad.

Or perhaps someone just doesn't like said movie. Even today I'm not a fan of Titanic or Avatar. Don't care if I ever see them again. Does that make me... well... maybe...

I still say the Ewoks would bring the smackdown on the Na'vi.

Yeah, I had a relapse and watched that too. That's the last trailer/clip/interview I will watch until I see the movie... I promise... really I do.

That's awesome, Wytchone! Take and post some "real time" pics with your cell phone. Let us live the experience vicariously thru you. Time to assemble.

My birthday is today. The new girlfriend surprised me with opening day tickets. At my age, I'm not a big fan of crowding in with that many people but hey...this movie is worth the exception. Bonus: She likes the Three Stooges and does a pretty mean Curly. I think I'm in love.

It's just NFG. THIS MAN cannot be "Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.".


...because before he was Nick Fury, he was "Sgt. Fury", and he fought the Axis powers in WW2.



He was born in 1908, and was in his late 30's when fighting in WW2. I remember this firsthand, in the late '60's I lived for each new issue of "Sgt. Fury". I remember his final battle, after he lost his eye, and sent his commandos to escape, while the gallant Sgt. Fury, with a blood-stained bandage around his eye, single-handedly fought a rear guard action to cover their escape, attacking a Nazi armored column using his bazooka.

It ain't right, they cannot re-write history that way. Sgt. Fury would be 104 years old today.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultimate_Nick_Fury

General Nicholas Joseph "Nick" Fury is a fictional character published by Marvel Comics. A reinterpretation of the character Nick Fury, one of the most notable differences between the two is that the mainstream Nick Fury is an Italian American colonel with graying brown hair, while this Nick Fury is a bald African American general, whose likeness specifically based upon that of actor Samuel L. Jackson (with the actor's permission). Jackson has since taken up the role in several Marvel movies set in the established Marvel Cinematic Universe, appearing in brief post-credits scenes in Iron Man and Thor; two scenes in Captain America: The First Avenger; and in a supporting role in Iron Man 2. He reprised his role as Fury in The Avengers, as a main character in that film. This Nick Fury has a substantial presence in all the Ultimate Marvel comics, appearing first in Ultimate Marvel Team-Up and Ultimate X-Men and later reappearing regularly in Ultimate Spider-Man and finally securing a regular, recurring role as the General of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the leader of the Ultimates, a re-imagining of the Avengers.

THIS is why SLJ as Fury is considered A-OK. THe rebooted Fury first appeared in print in 2002. Notsure if it was Kevin Feige or Jon Favreau who opted to go with the "modern" version or not in IRON MAN, although Marvel had an AVENGERS movie on the brain before that.

hehe well to each his own and I have absolutely no problem with that. Again the only thing that bothers me is the hypocrisy of certain people or reviewers. Another example, Armageddon. When the movie came out it was the worst film ever. When the blu-ray came out the same reviewers praised it as an all-around, edge-of-your-seat, larger-than-life spectacle. That's the kind of attitude that I despise. One day it's cool to hate it, the day after it's cool to love it. That's probably the same kind of people who tell everywhere how much Transformers sucks but they saw it 5 times. idiots.

I know what you mean, and I agree. Shh, I'm a Michael Bay fan. Admitting that here is like putting a big honkin' target on my back. Sure, his movies are easy to rip apart, but so what. I think everyone needs a little Bayhem in their life.

I really have a hard time dealing with people like that. I'm a Bay fan and I'm never afraid to say it. Sometimes I say it to other critics I meet and right away they judge me. My problem with them is, they don't represent the 90%+ people out there who enjoy the movies they bash. Are they only writing reviews for snobs? If a film's only goal is to give you an adrenaline rush, and it accomplishes it's goal, then I'll grade it as such. I wouldn't fail The Fast and the Furious because the acting was bad. I also wouldn't give it an A+ because it gave me an adrenaline rush. There has to be a balance, and many people judge others in condescending ways because they don't understand this. Your own opinion is one thing, but don't look down on those who don't follow it.
By the way, I've always loved Armageddon. I get so wrapped up in what's happening that I forget about the scientific flaws and I ball my eyes out at the end. That's effective film making.

That's crappy! Being in a packed theatre with no AC can be a really uncomfortable experience.

Well said. His movies are always entertaining and worth seeing on the big screen, so at least he has that going for him when so many others don't.

AC working again finally. We just got informed they had 4 screen's for Avengers @ midnight, now up to 10. All sold out no less. They gave free refills on all sizes of popcorn & drinks. Other then the ac issue its been a very nice experience. 15 min till start now. Woot!

Hollywood owes us for the tragedy of 2011 and it looks like they're ready to pay up . You have to stay to see the extra scene about three minutes into the credits . Of all the villians to pick . D-BOX coding is awesome for the film . Summer is off to a great start .

Im going to go with it was a temporary case of maddness :P I was ready for 12 hours of fun but at 15 it was pushing it

FYI if you dont know it but there are 2 clips after the credits.

People have said it before movie is full of hype. It also lives up to the hype(if you are not a Superhero movie fan, you will still enjoy it).

Yeah, I always seem to get "dust" in my eyes at the end of Armageddon too. Should make the wife clean better.
