Big Summer Movies Part 3. (Part 1)

From last time...

See you next year.
That'll have Avengers 2.
That should be interesting.

Well, here we go....

Avengers: Age Of Ultron (2015)

First, let's recap phase 2...
  • I got my favorite seat at the theater yet again. :D
  • All the kickass of Winter Soldier, and as fun as Guardians.
  • I've seen some spoiler-free reviews say it's not as good as Avengers 1. can't break it down into math, they're just different from each other. And that's a good thing. 
  • If I HAD to's a close tie with Winter Soldier, which I already liked a smidge better than Avengers 1. 
  • A good capper to phase II, but we're still getting "Ant-Man", as a bonus.
  • The new characters kick ass over all.
  • Speaking of Kick-Ass, Ultron-Quicksilver is great, but like everyone says, he was better in "Future Past". Not so much so that Ultron-Quicksilver stinks or anything though. 
  • Scarlet Witch is great.
  • Vision is awesome, but could have used more of him. But we no doubt will in "Infinity War".
  • Don't stay all through the credits, the mid-credits scene is all you get, but it kicks ass.
  • The humor is all through this one.
  • Everyone gets a shining moment, and Hawkeye gets a lot more to do than in the first.
  • The lineup is indeed changed at the end, and if you want it spoiled, the new roster most closely resembles that of "Avengers: United They Stand".
  • Someone brought a tiny little kid. People, don't fucking do that. Minimum age is 12, and even they might get antsy at all the talking in this one. 
  • It delivered what I wanted after Avengers 1 ended. More character fleshing out, and getting right down to business.

Anyhoo, even if you don't end up liking this as much as Avengers, it's still fucking awesome.
You'll have to be a pretty jaded turd not to enjoy it.

Said in the "Winter Soldier", review...

Might just be the best Marvel to date.
"Age Of Ultron", will probably crush it though.
Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans have hinted as much from their reaction to the script.

Ehh, didn't crush "Winter Soldier", but goes toe-to-toe.
Definitely up there.

I...think that's all I can say without spoiling things.

The End then.

Up next, Mad Max: Fury Road.

Oh!! Right!!
Also, the "The Force Awakens", trailer came before the flick.

I've watched it online a trillion times, so it slipped my memory, but it was awesome to see it on the big screen with high quality stereo.
