we can't giggle, it's a crime scene.

"We need a plan of attack!" "I have a plan. Attack."
TV - Boardwalk Empire

ALL RIGHT, LET'S DO THIS SHIT. I am still loopy and tired and having a legit nutty but I will try to get my thoughts together because this shit needs to be discussed. First, the marathon was OUTSTANDING. OUT. STANDING. Best $40 I ever spent. I showed up over two hours early and was horrified to see a considerable line already formed on 42nd Street, but then they let us in right away and it turned out there were three separate theatres, so I got an awesome spot (back row, center), not to mention some awesome swag:

And the manager guy later told us that they added the other two because ours, the first, sold out in three days. A-YEAH-YEAH! So I hung around and ran into some friends (and made a Starbucks run, meriting an entirely unbefuck-given response from the cinema staff) and then at 11:30 it finally started and we were just PUMPED. Adorably, Coulson did intros to every movie and we cheered every single time. And we cheered every time he showed up in each one of the movies. And every time Stan Lee showed up. And any time anything badass happened at all. Basically it was the most amazing audience I've ever had, outdoing TDK and all of the HP films and even Grindhouse, which 'til yesterday had been my #1. :') Mostly guys, which disturbed me a little at first--like, because of Tumblr I sort of forget that sometimes straight boys are nerds too and I was like "...oh, right. Well, I guess you can come too." Stray thoughts on the various films (which I have of course all seen before):

  • Iron Man: LAWD HAMMERCY Downey is so hot in this one. Christ. I mean, I know, duh, but with the slightly grown-out hair and the black sweater/jeans combo and the hammer (CAN HE JUST ALWAYS BE HAMMERING STUFF IN A TANK TOP PLEASE GOD) and sdkfsjdfksdfjks YES. And I still find the arc-reactorectomy scene, where Stane is growling in his ear when he's all O____O and paralyzed to be oddly and profoundly sexual. And I'm not even sorry about that.

  • The Incredible Hulk: Eh. It just doesn't quite work. It just feels really separate from the rest of the pack to me, and not just because of the change in actor. I love Ed Norton, but...eh. Maybe it's because of the flashback montage at the beginning setting up the whole plot. Or that Tim Roth is not fuckin' 39. (I'm just kidding. You know ilu, Mr. Orange.) But I do love that the big fight scene was in Harlem, since uptown gets ignored a lot in movies--and hello, Michael K. Williams!! Didn't notice your cameo before! I shot forward in my seat and the woman next to me went "IT'S OMAR!!" And I forgot that Phil Dunphy's in it. And despite it being probably the weakest movie, we roared in delight at "HULK...SMASH!"

  • Iron Man 2: How did I not notice the hilarious fake-tanning stains on Sam Rockwell's hands the first time? That's amazing. He kinda stole the movie, tbh. And Scarlett's wig is a hoooot mess, though I love Natasha. (The bros in front of me were offering such insightful comments as "I would plow her," leading me to finally snap "She was married to Ryan Reynolds. You have NO CHANCE." Dang.) And I like Favreau shamelessly giving himself a fight scene. Also, Downey, baby, I love you so much, and you REALLY cannot speak French. At all. That was so adorable. And can I just restate my love for Fav's fondness for Gilligan Cuts? Because they're awesome.

  • Thor: EEEEEEEEE. ♥ I've seen this one second-most number of times after IM because of Hiddles reasons, though I never realized how many ridiculously tilty shots are in it. Like, shit is just suddenly at a 45-degree angle for kinda no reason. But, OK. Hawkeye's cameo got a HUGE response, way better than my stupid-ass original audience a year ago. (It's Sunday! Sunday's my real, true, legit Hiddlesaversary! More on that later.) And Loki's first appearance definitely got the best reaction out of all the villains, which warmed my heart.

  • Captain America: D'awwww, omg, I had even more Steve-feels this time around. (Guys in front of me: "AMER-ICA!!" Me, resignedly: "Fuck yeah." They also kept doing the "HAIL HYDRA!" I was like, really?) He's just so damn earnest and precious and '40s and eeee. ♥ "Where is the little man from?" "Brooklyn" got a HUGE cheer (NYC I love yoooou ♥), as did his jumping on the grenade. How I adore that moment. Also, Sebastian Stan and his face. And adorable JJ Feild! With his ears! Just so, so cute. *squiggly feels*

  • ...oh, and there were 20-30 minutes breaks between each one, and I brought lots of food. And I won a prize!! They did trivia and I got the first question (!) and it was about the tesseract and I nailed it, obvs, so I won a prize. (The Captain America toy in the pic above.) \o/ BALLIN'. And people were already lined up for regular midnight shows when I went into the lobby around 6:45. O_____o Wow. That's devotion.

    AND THEN IT WAS FINALLY MIDNIGHT AND THE TRAILER STARTED AND WE GOT...a Chris Pine romantic dramedy. Really, tho. >___> That was lame and everyone booed (heh), but then we got Lawless and I was like EVERYONE SHUT THE GODDAMN HELL UP IT'S GARY OLDMAN and they did (basically it's Deep South Boardwalk Empire, yes? EXCIIIIITE) and we cheered for Prometheus the instant we saw "from Ridley Scott," and best of all, The Amazing Spider-man got a wildly favorable response--people haven't seemed to be too excited, and I REALLY am, but I guess they're coming around. "Oh, you've found my weakness! It's tiny knives!" PETER. ♥ But we did NOT get TDKR and I am not at all okay with that. >___________< The one big disappointment of the night. But then the movie. THE MOVIE!:

  • Loki's entrance. Oh my fucking balls. As soon as I saw his crouched figure I just had my fists at my mouth and then we saw his crazy-ass eyes and we cheered and I was like AAAAHDSFSKDFJKDSKLFJ and then he started killin' bitches right away and holy god I love him SO MUCH

  • And then mind control!! Was not expecting that! And I'm not even sorry to say that it took about four seconds for my brain to go to the "OH GOD I want really dark Clint/Loki fic BASICALLY NOW" place

  • And, OK, let's do this by character, first, Tony (because he'd be mad if I didn't): ADORABLE. I was sitting there thinking that I'd enjoyed his chemistry with Pepper more in IM1 than IM2, so I wasn't sure how I'd feel once they were Officially Together, but it totally worked; they kept up the banter and the cuteness and everything (and I enjoyed that she was barefoot in both of her scenes to make him look taller. Heh). I loved that she's actually friends with Coulson and Tony's little jealous moment (hee), and I liked that we actually acknowledged that he wasn't a good match for the whole Avengers plan. Going in I was not quite expecting that the entire plan had been scrapped, obviously, but that was kinda smart! And then I LOVED his arc and his interaction with the others and his bad people skills and his anger at Coulson's death (MAMA NOOOOOOOO we'll get there in a sec) and his "WE'RE NOT SOLDIERS!"--oh, my heart. And then oh my godddddddddd, when he was flying up into the--well, in a minute. But I just loved him so hard in this. ♥

  • Natasha is SUCH A BOSS. I loved how she was smart enough not to be overly cocky but badass enough to know her own skills, and that phone call with Coulson was priceless. I loved her trying to calm down Bruce when he was transforming; she has a human, gentle side while still being an epic asskicker. AND I AM SHIPPING HER & CLINT. THIS IS MIRACULOUS. A legit, nearly-canon het ship where no one's related and no one's dead and nothing is horrifying! Well, not extremely. Not by my standards! (Their whole thing with the used-to-run-jobs-together and the hired-to-kill-me-but-then-didn't is...like, scarily relevant to my interests rn. Because of stuff.) AND THEN SHE PWNED LOKI WITH HER BRAIN. THAT WAS AMAZING. First of all, "mewling quim"?! Is that not basically a fancier way of calling her a cunt?! With that terrifying delivery--I literally yelled "WHOOOOA" out loud because, like, oh my god. I loved it. And then she's just like 'lol bye bitch' and walked away and Loki's like D:< and holy shit, BOW to the queen.

    (I mean, by my standards that's a perfectly functional relationship. Downright cuddly.)

  • Oh, this is disorganized. CLINT! CLINT AND HIS ARMS! Clint and his firing arrows behind his head! Clint and his quiet angst when he realizes he killed a whole buncha bitches! (And the eye. THE EEEEYE. DDDD:) Awww. ♥ I was a little bummed he didn't get more developed, but he had such a lovely chemistry with Natasha; I feel like we learned a lot about them by the way they interacted. Also, arms. Did I mention...?

  • And Bruce!! I legit watched the audience fall in love with him over two hours. It was beautiful. When he first showed up he didn't get a big cheer like most of the others did and I was like :\ :\ because I stan for Mark now [that's the rule; you're nice to me personally and you get tenure] and I just loved him right away with his fidgety hands and his messy hair and his professorly jackets--and then he sprang some angst on us! I legit had my hands over my heart when he said he'd tried to kill himself. Oh, baby. :'( But then he just got more & more awesome (LOL THE VESPA) and "I'm always angry" got a resounding cheer. AND THEN HE PUNCHED THOR. I CAN'T. AND THEN LOKI--I actually missed the line "puny god" because we were carrying on too loudly after that. Amazing. Just amazing. (When I was on the train home a guy got on and saw my shirt and my swag and my blissful expression and was like "You saw Avengers!" and I was like "shit yeah I did!" and he's like "You know who stole the show?" and I loyally replied "Loki!" and he was like "naw, man, the Hulk!" And that made me happy because he really needs more love. D'awww.) And his bonding with Tony--science bros!1 "Finally, someone who speaks English!" Awesome.

  • And Steve! STEVE! My darling Steve! He was just so proper and gentlemanly and leadery--he basically turned into fuckin' Lt. Spiers and just ran shit, and everyone just went with it because he is awesome. Oh my god. Just watching his movie right before this and seeing his transform from Just A Kid From Brooklyn to a legit leader and hero...amazing. And everything with Tony--OH GOD, MY STEVE/TONY FEELS. I'm sorry, wasn't the line "take that away, and what are you"? Not "take that OFF and what are you"? UHHH...JUST SAYING. With the close-glaring and the unnecessary touching and the finally-learning-to-work-togethering--

    is all I'm saying, basically. ♥_____♥ ("Please tell me no one kissed me." Someone in the audience pointed at Steve and yelled "HE DID!" ...OK, fine, it was me.)

  • And Loki. My wonderful, magnificent Loki. With his scarf and his wicked smiles and his swag and--y'know, at this point the only way to tell the difference between Tom and Loki is the laugh; one is "AHAHAHA" and the other is "EHEHEHE." That's basically it. Well, that and the occasional murder spree. Oh man, the scene in Albuquerque Germany with the "KNEEL!" and the outfit and the "there are no men like me." (If he'd added "Just me" I would have LOST MY SHIT ENTIRELY.) The reunion with Thor was not what I expected--like I was thinking we'd get some big "!!!! DDDDDD: YOU ARE ALIVE, BROTHER" thing and then we'd get to the smackdown, but no! Thor is a throat-punch-first, feels-later kinda guy. I respect that. And it still got to me, with the "Did you mourn me?" "We all did." :( Awww, bros. And he got to be funny, too! "Are you ever not going to fall for that?" "I'm not overly fond of what follows," "This usually works," "...I'm listening." (I DIED.) And "I'll have that drink now." Honestly, we cheered just as much when he was doing something awesome as when he got his ass handed to him. I actually love that we saw his strangely human side, because we did that with Thor too and it makes him a more accessible villain while still being a badass god. Like, he's also a petulant, snarky kid brother. Oh, my sweet Hiddles. As I said in September, you're my favorite. Like HANDS DOWN.

  • (Oh hell, this is getting long.) And where do I even begin with the humor? "Doth thy mother know thou weareth her drapes?" "I don't see how that's a party," "...he's adopted," "Monkeys? I do not understand..." "I do! I got that reference" (OH MY GOD I'D WATCH AN ENTIRE MOVIE OF THAT), "full-tilt diva," "Hulk--smash" (we brought the roof down on that one, appropriately enough), Coulson being a Cap fanboy, just...everything. I'm sure I'm forgetting things, but it was just glorious.

  • AND LET'S TALK ABOUT THE SON OF COUL FOR A SECOND. OK, well, we knew everybody wasn't gonna come out alive, and there were howls--and I do mean howls--of "FUCKING WHEDON!" and similar when Agent Phil got...Washed. Because he's a life ruiner. I really didn't know until yesterday how deeply beloved that character was, and I thought about it today and realized that entire element of the movie would not have been possible without Clark Gregg's charisma. He's not a hugely essential character, technically, and with a lesser actor, it would not have worked at all to hang that much of the story's emotional weight on his death. But because he's so great and the fandom just fell in love with him so much, we totally bought that they'd all be motivated to assemble, as it were, to avenge him. AND THAT IS FUCKING AWESOME. YOU'RE THE MAN NOW, DOG. :') And I think the most badass line of them all might have been "Move away, please." MOVE AWAY, PLEASE. Polite to the very end. And "oh, that's what that does." I LOVE IT. WE SALUTE YOU, PHIL. (Dude on the train: "But I didn't like that they...*makes stabbing motion* Even the biggest dude--the hardest black man there was like 'Man! He was the good guy, man!!'" LOL NYC ♥)

  • ...but the trading cards, tho--did Fury seriously put blood on them just to make a point?! That's cold. I love that he's more than a little morally gray, but wow. O____o Crafty, but mean. I got my eye on you, Nick

  • And I also really wanted more of Maria, especially as exasperated!co-parent with Phil, because that trope is hilarious to me, but she did get some awesome moments, to be sure

  • And then just, like, THE ENTIRE BATTLE SCENE, with Cap and Thor teaming up and Hulk pwning Loki and all that wonderfulness, culminating in Tony, of all people, pulling a Heroic Sacrifice, and Jarvis offering to call Pepper (AAAHHHHHHH MY FEELS) and Hulk saving him (d'awwww) and then, uh, reviving him with a pretty simple method. HEH. Just one badass moment after another. \m/

  • BUT OKAY, THE CENTRAL PARK BIT: I was there, like, ALL DAY, and I absolutely did not see Loki bound and gagged, let alone the goddamn tesseract. So I dunno when they shot that, but well done, yo. I did know that there was some teleportin' going on, since they stood in a circle and turned on big fans and Joss yelled "AAAAAND...DISAPPEAR!" and they all looked upwards, but they totally hid the other stuff. They definitely shot some dialogue for that scene, too--Tony says "hey, c'mere," to Bruce, I think, and they talk about something or other and there was...something else (gimme a break, it was eight months ago), but I guess they either cut it or they were just screwing with us. Hey, either way, Best Day Ever.

  • AND THEN THOSE OTHER SCENES: holy shit, the reaction to Thanos was one of the loudest of the night. We were so pumped. It was awesome. (And then Tom accidentally tweeted about it and went "DELETE DELETE I DIDN'T DO ANYTHING" and I was like 'for Chrissake, you're a Cambridge man. Get it together.') And then the shawarma. HEE, OMG, THE SHAWARMA. "I dunno what it is, but I wanna try it." It is my headcanon that Loki was sitting off out of the shot pouting because they were like "No! You don't get any! 'Cause you're a jerk! Go sit over there!" and he's just all sad in the corner. This is fact.

  • Oh, and I forgot to say--my insane Epileptic Trees theory was that Nick Fury was hiding something under his eyepatch, because his Evil Dark Veins of Doom increased in evil darkness as the movie went on. I swear they did. And that's a repeated motif in the other movies, so I thought it was a thing. But, er, apparently not.

  • And then when it was over I wasn't tired AT ALL; I was jazzed up on pure adrenaline and I was like "THIS MOVIE, I LIKE IT! ANOTHER!" but then we had to leave and I got to bed around 4:00 and slept in and went to work a bit late and spent all day in a nerdy haze of happiness. And now I wanna see it again. Like, I really really wanna see it again like NOW. I'm feeling all withdrawal-y and twitchy and jittery and I swear I learned about this in middle-school health class. I JUST NEED THE CRACK AGAIN OKAY

    (and now I'm watching SPN oh my god what the actual devil is happeniiiiiiiiiiing)

    OH AND MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU. And tomorrow is Free Comic Book Day, so don't forget to get on that shit.

    Quick question!

    At the Marathon, were there a whiny nerdy man crying about not getting the 3D glasses? Because my 3 friends were at the marathon and one of them was extremely embarrassing.

    Ha! Not that I saw, but I was there mad early and then just sat in the back reading until my friends came. ...But I'd say it's likely, yes.

    ("Please tell me no one kissed me." Someone in the audience pointed at Steve and yelled "HE DID!" ...OK, fine, it was me.)


    also when Steve was all up in Tony's grill like "TAKE THE SUIT AWAY, WHAT ARE YOU?" someone in the audience may or may not have chirped "NAKED!" And that someone may or may not have been me~~

    I'm writing my post rn but I couldn't wait til I'd done to read yours, AS USUAL your feels are my feels. BUT I have to say PARTIALLY JUST LIKE "FOR REAL I SWEAR I REMEMBERED THIS ON MY OWN, NOT JUST CAUSE YOU BROUGHT IT UP IN YOURS, I SWEAAAR" that I was really !!!!!WHOA! at "mewling quim" as well. AND YES, it is completely 100% an Elizabethan equivalent of cunt. (Not that they didn't say cunt then too. Country matters! /Hamlet)

    WELL, COME ON. For a second I thought they were gonna legit go there and I would have DROPPED DEAD OF HAPPINESS, but I suppose we can't have it all. And THAT IS SOMETHING I'D LIKE TO SEE BECAUSE REALLY


    omg that line/moment/scene with Natasha was just RIDONKULOUS and intense and I loved it skdsjfklsjdjfkds (I'm seeing people on Tumblr going "what did that mean?!" O lawd.) He just took so many levels in batshit and enraged and awesome in this. Even just the "ENOUGH!!" to the Hulk was...kinda giving me ladyboners, ngl. >____> OMG YAY YOUR POST <3

    (and tbh I'm kinda sad they changed the title of Lawless from The Wettest Country. Because...heh.)

    Yay for May the Fourth be with you and free comic book day (thanks for the reminder).

    I havent seen Avengers yet so Im skipping the spoilers. Im seeing it Sunday..UGGG two more day :/


    That means I'll actually have to get out of bed tomorrow. That's annoying. But there's a cute little comic store near me & I bet there will be nerds there squeeing about the movie, so. :D

    YES YES YES to ALL the things and ALL the emotions. I would like to leave a coherent comment of opinions/thoughts, but it's not possible because I can barely not mash the keyboard with my emotions. No words with how incredible this movie was. Agreed on all accounts. Every single one, and our theater responded the same way to everything - it made it so much fun to go at midnight with everyone else who was just as pumped and understood everything.

    The shawarma. I can't even. I'm overwhelmed. Everything is magnificent and perfect.

    And then when it was over I wasn't tired AT ALL; I was jazzed up on pure adrenaline and I was like "THIS MOVIE, I LIKE IT! ANOTHER!" but then we had to leave and I got to bed around 4:00 and slept in and went to work a bit late and spent all day in a nerdy haze of happiness. And now I wanna see it again. Like, I really really wanna see it again like NOW. I'm feeling all withdrawal-y and twitchy and jittery and I swear I learned about this in middle-school health class. I JUST NEED THE CRACK AGAIN OKAY

    Exact same thing. In my 3-hours of sleep haze I tried to leave the house in my Captain America shirt with a blazer and heels (it makes it an outfit, I swear!) and my friend/colleague who slept on my couch in order to see the movie at midnight, vetoed fangirl comic nerd in favor of not getting fired. Fair.

    Agreed on all accounts. Very well said. The analyses and the feelings, all the things. Cheers!

    Just ALL OF THE FEELINGS. ALL OF THEM. I was on such a buzz the entire time because everything was exciting and the audience was pumped and there wasn't a single boring moment. \m/ And that sounds like an awesome outfit; any place that would fire you for wearing that is clearly not awesome. I should've just stayed in my arc reactor shirt, really.

    can't wait to see it againnnnnn













    *rolls on the floor*

    Bruce snuck up on me. If you would have told me I'd leave the theater with a slew of Hulk-shaped feelings, I probably would have laughed, but Mark absolutely nailed it. Even the way he moved seemed self-conscious and hyper-aware of his body at all times. And the bullet line, uggg. I thought it was interesting that everyone approached him in a way that acknowledged that he was a threat - Nat with their little dance during his "recruitment" (if you want to call it that), S.H.I.E.L.D. with its prison. That's what drew me so much to his and Tony's dynamic, I think; Tony seemed to treat him with less wariness than curiosity, imo.

    "Please tell me no one kissed me." HA, this is exactly what went through my mind during that scene! But I spent the bulk of the movie appreciating everyone's chemistry with everyone and whispering "now kiss" under my breath. Such are my priorities.

    But most importantly, NATASHA ROMANOFF, ALL MY BLACK WIDOW FEELINGS. She was priority numero uno going in for me, and I thought Joss did her justice. He really worked the ensemble, so that everyone felt important to the mission and had actual things to do. This was especially important for Nat, who was being accused of being a love interest or your basic eye candy from day one, boo. NATASHA COULD TAKE YOU ALL.

    YAAAAAAAY THIS MAKES ME HAPPY. ♥ I've never been a huge Hulk fan--like, I never thought there was much to the character; he gets really big and smashes stuff and that's kinda it, but Mark brought so much depth and really made me care about Bruce as a person and...awww. He and Tony were just great together; they're both brilliant science dudes, and yet their personalities are SO different. I love it.

    Man, when we got that shot of Steve, Natasha and Clint from behind I practically yelled "STILL GUARDING ASSES, MAN." Because wow, everyone in this movie could get it. Priorities indeed. \m/

    THAT IS SO TRUE. She had some awesome moments in IM2, but she didn't get much development as a person. But now! Now she's awesome and complex and funny and badass without being a caricature. Whedon once again proves he can write awesome ladies with no trouble, and I approve so hard. Love it.

    Funny story, pardon the slight...off-topicness? I was playing Fable 3 & in the game your character has an evil brother. I kept thinking I recognized his voice and a few seconds later I realized it was Michael Fassbender! :D Made my afternoon.


    He does have a lovely voice. He can do evil so very well. He should do it more!


    Everyone's saying that Bruce is going to gain the most new fans out of this and I think they're totally right. Mark rocked it and his bromance with Tony and taking out both godly brothers at points during the film, he was definitely so epic omg and Mark is just the cutest.


    ahaha that gif where it looks like Chris is texting Tony has always been, like, Johnny texting Tony because Steve wouldn't do that and Johnny so would to troll Tony. But then again I also don't have feelings about Tony and Steve other than leading comrades so that could be it too. XDDDDD

    I'm sad to see Son of Coul and I love how much his character has grown and that he's become so beloved but come on, we all saw his death coming, didn't we? Even though Joss trolled us and said he was safe - he was the obvious choice. Plus it made for some great scenes and motivation afterwards.


    YES YES I AGREE and I am so so happy about that. :DDDDDDDDDDDD (Though apparently Tom gained a whole bunch of new followers recently. And then tweeted spoilers about Thanos. WAY TO BE, HIDDLESTON. WAY TO BE.) That just warms my heart beyond words because he's so great & I know he was worried about being the new guy and everything. D'awww, it's great when nerds are welcoming.

    HA, oh man, there's gotta be Johnny/Steve/Tony fic out there, right? Just pure comedy where Tony's like "oh my god am I hungover or are there two of you" and Johnny's like "LOL THIS IS HILARIOUS" and Steve's like :\ and...yeah, I need this. Crossovers everywhere!

    I...I...I just didn't know. I heard lots of rumblings that Hawkeye would be the one to get it, though I didn't quite believe that, but I guess I definitely should've known after they had him do the marathon intros and stuff. Once I saw how much everyone adored him, then I should've been like "oh fuck, he dead." BUT NO, I dared to have hope. ;_____; WHEDONNNNNN

    I need to see it again I need to see it again I NEED TO SEE IT AGAIN WHY IS THIS MOVIE LIKE CRACK klsdkfjslkfjskjfskjfkl



    I have no words, obviously. Except that I'm kinda jealous of your swag, 'kay?

    It was WONDERFUL. Most epic day ever. And I thought I'd get restless or tired or antsy BUT I DIDN'T I was just like "THIS IS AWESOME, next movie plz!" *bounces* (And they said they might do a Batman marathon for when TDKR comes out and I was like DO NOT TOY WITH MY EMOTIONS THAT WAY. But I'd so do that. I did six movies; I can handle three!)

    Ha, that was fab. :D I gotta hang up the poster, though I'm running out of space in my room. Too much nerdery.

    God, a marathon would've been AMAZING but at my little country cinema this wouldn't have sold well, soooo... I got a good audience at least, watching TA for the first time. And yesterday I went again, and it was even BETTER, because they were all cheery, and there were more people and YAY!

    ... JJ Feild is in CA? I need to see that movie, but somehow it's never worked out so far. I'm ashamed of myself. Steve was so adorable in TA and my best friend next to me (who loves action movies with hot guys but isn't into superheroes etc at all, said when we first saw him in his uniform, "God, that man has a gorgeous ass!" XD)

    Trailers, we got The Hobbit, and the new Spider-Man, a short one for TDK and that one with Guy Pearce, uhm... Lockout. The Hobbit! We cheered. *g*

    I also didn't see the whole mind control thing coming and was like, "But... but.. that's Hawkeye! That doesn't work!!"^^

    Heee, about Pepper always walking barefoot - that's exactly what my friend said, too! XD And yeah he was so great again (as always), RDJ had some awesome scenes (his fantastic conversation with Loki, "You want a drink?" and the "performance issues" XD).

    I don't care much for ScarJo but I loved her Natasha! That phone call at the beginning is so funny, and her and Clint, I started to ship it too, it kind of works, and YES how she pwned Loki!

    I loved Bruce after he interacted so well with Tony, like "Yeah, another science bro!" I think almost everyone wasn't sure about The Hulk, how that would work, but he had some of the best scenes in the whole movie! Him and Loki, that's always the biggest laugh, it's so wonderful and hilarious. :D

    I also now see the Steve/Tony ship and have started to read fic. I regret nothing.

    Hiddles got also a lot of the laughs, he was just such a FUN villain! And that's important, a fun villain is always so much better. *g* and his evil smiles, I immediately thought, "Yeah tumblr is right, you ARE a little shit!".

    Yeah agin, the humor was fantastic in this one. So many great one-liners and exchanges. I loved Tony's realisation of, "He wants flowers and parades, he wants a monument with his name on it... son of a bitch!" God, we laughed.

    I tell you, I was pissed off at Phil's death, because it seems that this always happens in franchises I love. They did it in PotC4 with groves, and now this. Coulson was of course much more loved than Groves was, I think, and it's incredibly lucky for this movie that gregg is so amazing and that the fans embraced his charatcer so much. But dammit, was I pissed off!

    And what is it with that after credits scene of the team sitting around and eating? We didn't see that one!

    So uhm yeah, fucking fantastic movie!

    He is in CA! He's kind in the background and doesn't show up for a while, but now that I've see Third Star and I love him I totally noticed. :D And he's adorable! I really love that one; I highly recommend it. It really works as a general movie as well as part of the Marvel series, imo. But then again, I have all sorts of feels for WWII stories. ♥

    UGH JEALOUS of your trailers. I actually have a movie-critic friend (who was at the marathon) who legit stans for Lockout, so he would have flipped if we'd had the trailer. XD It looks ridiculous, and yet I really wanna see it because I love Guy Pearce, ngl.

    I don't care much for ScarJo but I loved her Natasha!
    I think I like her now. I really didn't before either, but I decided I had to change my ways because I could not be that asshole who likes ALL of the boys & dislikes the one girl in the cast, esp. since I like the character, so I resolved to change and now I think I dig her. And I ship her hardcore irl with Renner, because those two are clearly hittin' it. And that's fabulous.

    STEVE/TONY SDKLFJDSFKSDFJKLJFD I LOVE THEM OMG and I was so glad they got awesome banter! :D I love the idea that Howard was fanboying him and Tony's like "...really, this guy?" Hee. But of course the real Cap fanboy is Coulson. D'awwww.

    He was definitely much more smiley this time around. It was awesome. He really does menacing extremely well, especially considering what a ridiculously nice person he is irl. And HA, yes, "full-tilt diva"! :D I loved that whole scene--it was funny and clever and had some great Tony/Steve problem-solving, so it was all workin' for me.

    Aww, man, I forgot they killed Groves!! (That was my reaction with Norrington. MAMA NOOOO) I swear the fans' reaction to him affected the entire landscape of the script, and I LOVE that, but also nooooo. HOWEVER, I am holding onto hope that Fury may have been massively trolling them & he's still alive. It could happen!! This is a comic book!

    And hee, yes, they're all just sitting around eating shawarma and not talking and looking vaguely bored. It's the deadpan-ness that makes it hilarious. XD I think there are videos floating around of the cam version. (I maintain that Loki was there too out of camera range, just all pouty and mad.) NEED TO SEE AGAINNNNNN

    I find it so amazing that you went to see all the movies at once again, but tbh I find it even more awesome that you had theatres who offered that <3____<3 Nothing like that over here...*sigh* And all the awesome stuff you got!!!
    Still not over the amazingness of the movie. I wanna squee about it all day long and watch the funny interviews of the cast (which I am basically doing most of the time lately...lol)

    That was just AMC being awesome. ♥ I'm really starting to love them; they have an excellent rewards program and they also don't have a Fandango surcharge if you use your card (Er, I go to the movies a lot.) They said they might do another one for The Dark Knight Rises and I was like OMG YAS DO THAT I WILL GO TO THERE. Fingers crossed! And that cast...oh man. Cast!friendships are sorta my fave thing ever anyway, so when it's people I already love in a movie that I loved...yeah, all of the feelings. :DDDD

    i wish they had done the Marvel marathon over here. i so would have gone :(

    BUT OHMYGOD THE AVENGERS! ASJKDHALKSJDHKAJSDH!! i've exhausted my ability to form sentences about this movie tbh. i just can't anymore. TOO MANY FEELINGS!

    I QUITE UNDERSTAND. More theatres should've done one! I think they might in the future, since this one was way more successful than they thought it was gonna be--they told us that they picked one big theatre and thought that would be enough, but it sold out in three days and they had to add two more. :D Apparently they underestimated our nerdy commitment! If they do one for Batman I'm totally going.


    I finally saw Avengers on Sunday :)

    Ack, lord have mercy I love RDJ as Tony Stark. They just need to keep making Ironman movies.

    And Bruce!! I legit watched the audience fall in love with him over two hours Ha! yes. Im not the hugest Bruce Banner/Hulk fan but I did legit fall in love with him <3 Im glad the gave Mark some lines too as Bruce before he Hulked out ;)

    Sou of Coul- :( I didnt see that coming. I will totally miss him! Rip my heart out Joss!

    He is just so insanely perfect for the role. It's kinda ridic. He understands the dude far too well. And yeah, I mean, I've always found the Hulk to be kinda simplistic; he doesn't really have any awesome powers or anything, but they really explored his layers in this one and I loved all of it.

    THAT'S WHAT HE DOES. HE RUINS LIVES. DDDD: GAH. But there are theories...!

    But I do love that the big fight scene was in Harlem

    THIS IS A TOTAL LIE. IT'S IN DOWNTOWN TORONTO! And it's the most blatantly In Downtown Toronto sequence I have ever seen in my entire life. The blatant, blatant shot of Zanzibar (which is one of the most iconic visuals from that strip of Yonge Street... and also a strip club) kills me.

    I was rewatching a clip of Natasha's fight see on oh boy, that wig. That's some middle school production madness on her head right there.

    I enjoyed Tony/Pepper a lot more in IM than IM2, but they were so adorably precious and domestic in this one ♥.

    If you would have told me before this movie that I would come out stanning Natasha and Bruce i would have laughed in your face, but here we are! RUFFALO: ALL UP IN YOUR MOVIE WITHOUT A LEAD-IN APPEARANCE SNATCHING EVERYBODY'S WIGS.

    "I do! I got that reference" (OH MY GOD I'D WATCH AN ENTIRE MOVIE OF THAT)

    It could have done with a TON more of Steve vs. The Gosh Darn Future, but I suppose they're saving that for his solo sequel. He was still my precious earnest bb ♥.

    Hee! But--the Apollo Theatre! Awkwardly crammed in to every other shot to establish that it was totally Harlem, yo! *sigh* But, ya know, we can pretend...kinda. :D That movie is a bit of a mess. It has some great moments, but watching it right after Iron Man...c'mon.

    NATASHA AND BRUCE. ♥~ Everyone doubted them, and were they awesome? YES I THINK SO. Man, I loved their first scene together, and the bit after the explosion when she's trying to calm him down and keep him from Hulking out and dfksjfkdlsjf GAWD I THINK I MIGHT SHIP THEM TOO. What even. Stupid flawless movie with all the chemistry all over the place!

    I heard tell that there's a good half-hour of deleted scenes, mostly involving Steve, including scenes of him ~getting used to the world and also some kinda reunion with Peggy (!!!!!!!!!!). THIS NEEDS TO BE TRUE. Idk for sure, BUT IT NEEDS TO BE.

    I CAN FINALLY READ THIS FUCKING POST BECAUSE I SAW THIS MOVIE LAST NIGHT. i'm still jazzed up thinking about the epicness. seriously. so all i can really respond with is:

    because his Evil Dark Veins of Doom increased in evil darkness as the movie went on.


    :DDD I think that's the main reason why everyone says they need to see it again--because the first time you're just SOEXCITED.GIF going in and then it actually stays awesome and gets more awesome and you just can't pay attention to everything because of all the feels. \8D/

    ...but no, seriously, what was up with that?! That wasn't just regular scars, right?! I totally thought I saw a change, and that happens in several of the other movies for various evil reasons. That is my theory. >___>
