Scarlett Johansson @ The Avengers
Great movie. Not because of Scalett (but it helped) but mostly because of Iron Man (aka Stark). He is too fun. There are some great scenes with Hulk as well. Probably the one with less sense of humor is the Captain America.
When you watch one of these movies you are not expecting a great story (the story is the usual one). You are watching for the action and probably the special effects. For The Avengers you can count as well with tons of jokes. I think I laugh more with this movie than with some known as Comedies. Very good work. 10 in 10 at IMDB.
Getting back to the girls (you know me), I am waiting for the Black Widow movie. It needs to come out. Please! We want an action movie with Scarlett as main character. This is specially needed because Marvel doesn’t have that many woman heroes. I think this would make is justice to woman. And of course, we men, like to see Scarlett jumping around. Nevertheless, I need to say that Pepper (Gwyneth Paltrow) and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) are sexy woman.
Yeah, I agree. It is kind of strange that for the Thor movie I post this picture. But to be sincere, I tried to capture one before, but I was too slow. This was what I get but I didn’t dislike it. So, here it is. Not really a Natalie Portman fan, but she is cute, and this picture shows her beauty. Taking the chance to talk about girls, I also liked Jaimie Alexander as Sif.
Well, but the movie… while the other two (Captain America and Iron Man) are more Sci-Fi, this is more Magic. That is kind of weird. Also, it is kind of weird to expect Thor as a super-hero in Earth, when he ends the movie in Asgard. Nevertheless, I wait to see how they connect in The Avengers.
There is a fragile connection to Iron Man, as Stark is mentioned, and some connection with Captain America (but only after the credits). If The Avengers were already been planned, I think the plot could be better written.
Not sure if I liked this more than Captain America or the other way around. They are two different kind of movies, and probably I have a preference for human Super-Heroes. Nevertheless, will give 8/10 @ IMDB for Thor.
Oh, btw, Natalie Portamn reminds me of Stana Katic (Kate Beckett in Castle).
Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)
Yeah, I couldn’t resist on posting here a screenshot with all these girls.First of all, a disclaimer: I am not a fan of Marvel Comics (the original books), but I am enjoying Marvel attack on the cinema. But I had in mind that Captain America didn’t use a gun. But probably I am wrong.
Regarding the movie, it seems that Marvel is in its origins stories. If I watched a few time ago X-Men First Class, where some heroes are presented in their beginning stories, here again, we learn how Captain America is born. Yet again, not sure if this is the official story, but that is not that relevant.
Regarding the movie itself, it is not bad, but it is not good. I think more could be done. Too much time is used in the Captain America dances, making it kind of boring (specially if you recall that the movie is 2 hours in length).
Nevertheless, there are some interesting scenes, there are some jokes, and Hayley Atwell is around. My vote is 8 @ IMDB. Next, Thor. I need to prepare for The Avengers. But unfortunately it seems we will not have the Black Widow movie :(.
Edit: I forgot an interesting fact. I loved the idea of adding Stark as a scientist, and showing a science fair, etc, making it somewhat parallel or related with Iron Man. Well, at least, my understanding is that Mr. Stark that appears in this movie should be Iron Man’s father.
