So. The Avengers. I feel like I should do a full on review but I have a hard time making it past OMG!!! THAT WAS THE BEST THING EVER! WHEN DO I SEE IT AGAIN????

Some incoherent bullet points.
- Given the number of characters, I was blown away at how well balanced the movie was.  In terms of screen time and story development it was dead on for all the characters really.  I know there was speculation when Loki was announced as the baddie that this would really be Thor 2, but we got just as much storytime and character development for the rest of the gang too. 

- Joss Whedon and Mark Ruffalo have succeeded in finally making me LOVE an onscreen Hulk.  I did not expect this. I already like Mark Ruffalo as an actor, but I never expected him to slot so well into playing Banner.  Plus the comic relief with Hulk was just off the charts.  And Tony gets a science nerd twin to play with!

- Yes, I was saying "Fuck you Whedon" when Coulson died, but I still think it worked great for the story.  *sniff* I'll totally miss Phil though.

- Can we talk about Maria and Natasha???  They were both equally as badass as the boys and we didn't have to go through the whole "I have to be super kick-ass to prove that I'm just as capable as the men."  They just were badass.  Period.

- Speaking of Natasha, seeing her in action really makes me want them to bring Bucky back to the movies as the Winter Soldier.  PLEASE!!!

- I'm seriously ready to watch all the movies in this franchise until the end of time.  And I'll definitely be going back for multiple viewings of this one.  Possibly even this weekend. :)

Just got home from seeing it in regular view. I am SO sneaking off before work tomorrow to see it in 3D.

The Hulk was fantastic. Ruffalo did an incredible job, and the CGI that turned him into the Big Guy managed to keep the acting job. Which, if you think about it, was pretty effin' incredible.

And when Hulk picked Loki up and used him for a wrecking ball? I nearly wet my pants, I was laughing so hard. Wasn't that scene right out of a Looney Tune somewhere? I keep thinking I've seen that done before.
