Thor and Friends

DISCLAIMER: Oo na, in love ako kay Thor kaya ‘yan ang title. :p Hello, this is my post about The Avengers. 😀

The long wait for the epic superhero mash-up movie was worth it! I saw it last Saturday and I’m planning to see it again! I’m sure a lot of you have seen it twice or even more! Director Joss Wheddon did a superb job in making all of the Avengers shine. Well… Iron Man’s easily the superstar but we can blame his rockstar attitude for it. :p

I have no plan to write a review because I’m sure everybody knows it’s a huge success. It’s made already more than 100million pesos here in the Philippines.

Let me just share my thoughts/reactions for each and every major character/or the actors that played them. 😀

THOR – The story of your solo movie was boring (sorry, baby) but you are still my favorite Avenger because of your absofuckinlutely hot body, sexy dirty blond locks, not-so-easy-to-understand-but-mesmerizing-anyway accent, and intense sense of entitlement. I looooooove yoooooouuuuuu.

CAPTAIN AMERICA – Oh captain, my captain… your altruism is endearing. I loved the scene when you rescued the old man from Loki’s crazy wrath. I hope that in the next film, you will already have a new love interest. I hope it’s not that blonde waitress that thanked you at the end of the movie.

BLACK WIDOW – Scarlett’s appearance was the first that put me at the edge of my seat. The escape scene was remarkably entertaining. Hehe @ “let me put you on hold!” You are my girl crush. ❤ Your unspoken relationship with Hawkeye is intriguing but I don’t really care much about him. I’m not a fan of Jeremy Renner. :\

NICK FURY – Always delightful but definitely eclipsed by Agent Phil Coulson in this movie. I shed tears when Nick Fury brought out Coulson’s bloodstained vintage Captain America cards.

THE HULK – Mark Ruffalo displayed the shyness and reluctance I expected from Bruce Banner. And since this movie is for kids and kids at heart (PG 13), I think he’s a better choice than Ed Norton. Also, I have loved Mark Ruffalo since 13 Going on 30. The Hulk, I guess is the fave Avenger of kids. I’m basing this on how the kids became happy-noisy when he was tossing Loki around. Actually, kasama ako sa tawa ng tawa sa scene na ‘yon. :p

LOKI – Tom Hiddleston’s an excellent power-hungry, revenge-driven psychogod. I think he’s the best of The Avengers cast. I look forward in watching him in Henry V and Thor 2. He played author F. Scott Fitzgerald in the Woody Allen film Midnight in Paris.

IRON MAN – Take Iron Man out of The Avengers and it will be crap. Take Tony Stark out of the suit and he will still be smashing in his Black Sabbath shirts. I take back what I said about Tom Hiddleston being the best. It will always be Robert Downey Jr. 🙂 Here’s a clip of Iron Man vs Thor… Kinikilig ako!!!!!!!!! http://themovieblog.com/2012/clip-thor-vs-iron-man-in-the-avengers-movie/

The Avengers is, without any doubt, a crowd pleaser even to us non-comic geeks. Even Ted Mosby knows this and said, “Kids, in the summer of 2012, your Aunt Robin decided to join the Avengers.”

Captain America > Thor

Hands down, Captain America’s storyline is much better than Thor’s. The story of the first avenger reminded me of Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds because of the World War II setting and the main protagionist’s band of kickass bros.

Reminders stop there. of course, there is less violence in this movie. And of course, there are parts here that will just make you go “Awwwww…”. Parts when Steve was still a scrawny soldier-wannabe. Wait for the grenade scene. if you don’t go “awww” then there’s something wrong with you. Says who? Says me.

Chris Evans did a good job as Steve Rogers. Even better than Chris Hemsworth as Thor. But of course, Hemsworth bags the award for having the hottest Avenger body. He he he!

Loved seeing Stanley Tucci as Dr. Erskine and Tommy Lee Jones as Colonel Phillips. Sabi nga ng friend namin na si Maj, si Tommy Lee Jones daw ang Eddie Garcia ng USA. :p Brit actress, Hayley Atwell was flawless in her role as Agent Carter, the Cap’s love interest. Bagay talaga sa kanya ang red lipstick. 😀

Hugo Weaving as Red Skull was so-so. He was more sinister as Agent Smith in the Matrix than a Super Nazi nemesis of the first avenger.

I have nothing more to say about this movie except it’s a must-see. It’s worth to watch in the theatre. AND do not be a moron and leave right after the scene with Nick Fury and the Cap in the gym. Wait for the post-credits.
