      Just watched SPvtW. I dig that movie a lot. Hilarious flick. As for the Avengers, I definitely want to see it, but I'm wholly content with waiting for DVD release, or re-release. I've never been a huge fan of superhero stuff. Comics, books, outerwear, movies, phone apps, haircuts, tattoos... Whatever. I'll get around to it, though.

      There is something else I need to see first, anyway, just on GP.
      I'm really just here for the pancakes.
      I'm Sorry Hachi... I love you.

      Streamed Thor last night on Netflix and completely agree. Complete throw-away role. She was mostly just annoying in the movie, brought nothing. And yes, we saw Avengers/Ironman and are now backfilling with Thor, Capt America and Hulk

      Behold Thanos!



      ** EDIT ** Apparently this was included with some, but not all, of the screenings. Having not seen the film yet, I was unaware.

      Pretty sure this was at the end of the credits in every single showing. I never heard anyone say that it wasn't.

      Yep, totally agree - she was probably the one major thing that I didn't like with Thor. I finally saw Captain America on Netflix last night (it's available for streaming now) and thought it was OK. Still haven't seen The Avengers.

      That was poor writing and directing. You really can't blame Natalie Portman for that. In her other two recent roles, she was really good in No Strings Attached as a romantic comedy fluff movie and she won a best actress Oscar for a serious dramatic part in Black Swan.

      Finally saw this last night. Not sure if it's because I never read any of the comics or saw most of the setup movies, but this movie did almost nothing for me. I was the most odd combination of awesome (action scenes, effects, costumes) and dreadful (villans, forced comedy, schizophrenic editing, plot) I think I've ever seen in a single movie. It was half $200 million blockbuster and half Sci-Fi channel miniseries all at the same time.

      I dozed off halfway through with my 5.1 system at peak volume.
      Gentlemen, you had my curiosity. But now you have my attention.

      The problem is that the movie doesn't stand alone. You had to have seen Ironman, Ironman 2, Captain America, and Thor first.

      Right. But given how much $ it made here and overseas, I have to assume large percentages of those who saw it did not see all the setup movies. The action scenes and special effects were truly blockbuster level and well done, which may be what generated the wide appeal. The negatives just distracted from the positives too often for me.

      I don't think you would have enjoyed it even if you'd seen the setup movies
