Movie Review: The Avengers (Jason’s Take)

Most fans of the source material will be flocking to theaters this weekend to see The Avengers, the epic culmination of characters and storylines spanning five films, with a mix of excitement and apprehension. But with so much that could have gone wrong, I’m happy to say that writer/director Joss Whedon got so much right, crafting an experience that’s truly greater than the sum of its parts. This film is popcorn cinema at its finest and its going to make so much money.

Movie Review: The Avengers (Bill’s Take)

Like the old saying goes, any great team is more than the sum of its parts.  That concept is illustrated brilliantly in The Avengers, which escalates the scope and characterization of Marvel’s movie universe into the stratosphere and delivers the most entertaining, most satisfying and what might be the greatest comic book movie ever.

Movie Review: The Avengers (Adam’s Take)

The Avengers can be seen as the antithesis of Spider-Man 3.  Whereas Sam Raimi’s much-maligned blockbuster suffered from too many villains in one film, The Avengers has to spend much of its two hour and twenty minute running time just introducing its main characters and getting the audience up to speed.  Luckily, writer and director Joss Whedon manages to keep the pace high and even the periods of long exposition don’t wear out their welcome.  Most of the dialogue is exactly what we’ve all come to expect from a Marvel film; witty banter, tons of one-liners and sexual innuendo, etc.  Robert Downey Jr., whose role as Iron Man kicked off this whole event four years ago, gets probably the most screen time of anyone and delivers every line, funny or not, with conviction.

TV Korner: Mad Men 5.7 – “At the Codfish Ball”

This week’s episode of Mad Men was full of disappointments.  No, that doesn’t mean that I was disappointed with the show; it means that almost every character was severely unhappy about something.  The balance that “At the Codfish Ball” struck among the many different storylines was incredible and it ended up being a solid, if somewhat subdued, episode.
