So yes I went to the midnight showing of Avengers and it was definitely worth it. I can't remember the last time I went to a midnight showing honestly, it's been a while but I really enjoy going to them. I think they are so much fun it's just a shame I work at 6:30am every weekday. Yikes.

We have some family in town who wanted to go and I was like what the heck, it would be fun so we bought our tickets. We had a late lunch/early dinner at 3 and I was feeling so tired and really regretting buying those tickets, thinking wow, I am way too old for this (at my ripe old age of 20) so around 6 I laid down for a nap. I was asleep till 9:30! I got up, took a shower and ate a little food and then I slept again until we left just around 11:30. And thank heavens I did. I was able to wake up for my 6:30 shift, no problem and I feel fine. Definitely a little jittery from the energy drink I had this morning. But not as tired as I expected to be by any means. Yay for not being a complete zombie!

But back on topic of the movie. I am going to do a detailed movie review, because, why not?

So the Avengers in the movie are Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, The Hulk, Black Widow, and Hawkeye.

Captain America is considered the first Avenger, and I really loved his outfits in this movie, like his non uniform outfits. Particularly the one at the end of the film, tan slacks, a small checkered blue shirt and a brown leather jacket. I at first didn't like Chris Evans as Captain America because I felt he had too much of a baby face and that Captain America needed to be more chiseled, but he grew on me.

Robert Downey Jr. is perfect for Iron Man, honestly who cold do a better job? I have never been disappointed with him in that role.

Thor, oh that big man of muscle. He is spot on. He really seems like he is plucked out of some gooey romance novel with his long hair, massive arms, and dreamy voice and accent... Oh and blue eyes. Dream. It is crazy to think how beefed up for the role he got. Do you remember him in Star Trek? Go back and watch the first 10 minutes, that dad who sacrifices himself, that's him! He looks soooo different. So impressive!

I have not seen the most recent Hulk movie with Edward Norton, although I am a big fan of him, but not of the Hulk character at all. I find it very odd the he did not play Hulk in this movie, he turned down the role so they brought in someone new entirely, Mark Ruffalo, who did a good job, but I always think of 13 going on 30 when I see him, and I feel like he plays in a lot of chick flicks... But again he did a good job, and Hulk really kicked butt in this movie and certainly redeemed himself as a character.

Black Widow is played by Scarlett Johansson. She is such a babe, I really do love her. I can't think of a movie I have seen her in that I have not enjoyed. Although I wish we had a bit more of a background on her character. Which of course if I knew the comics, that wouldn't be a problem, but... Like I'll ever actually read those.

And finally Hawkeye who I feel I know nothing about. His character really is quite cool, but I just wish we had more of an idea of who he was, or had at least been familiar with him by seeing him in earlier movies, like Black Widow. She played a small role in the last Iron Man, but she was obviously something serious. Supposedly Hawkeye is in a bit from Thor but I will have to re-watch it... Obviously he wasn't in it enough to be memorable. Oh and I particularly like the Lord of the Rings reference...

All in all the movie was good and up to expectations. There was some constant fighting between the boys all trying to be "alpha male" which got a little old, but it was action packed, comical and well done. I would actually like to see it again in theaters, which it has been a long time since I have felt that way about any movie and it is definitely one what we will buy once it comes out.

  1. I'm glad you liked it! I love Iron Man and Jason really wants to see this but I wasn't sure if it was worth seeing it in theaters. We'll have to go!
