One would think there’s an ongoing theme to this comic. From cover to story and that is a “race”. The…

May 12, 2017 2:38 pm I liked that they treated this as a standalone movie rather than tying it into the cinematic universe. It just feels i could watch it again and not worry to much of what came before or what's coming next. I've the same fear as you Connor cause these Marvel movies are looking all the same, Guardians being the exception. On the positive the visuals are stunning and characters well acted (I expected more from Mantis, what she really is and not the butt of jokes). On the negatives the jokes are somewhat forced especially Taserface scene was just to painful to watch. Also they just played into the audience expectations regarding the humor, soundtrack and groot. In the end they didn't show us anything new here. Loved the Watchers and Stan Lee. (I did think he was a Watcher and these scenes just made me happy). Also-- so happy Yondu got his proper mohawk.
August 8, 2015 9:47 pm I'd be shocked if Stan Lee made a cameo on this.
May 1, 2015 8:32 pm ok I think I missed that bit (Vision scoping out Thor's cape). thanks Connor. You know I was hoping Hulk would say a few words while he was moping in the Quinjet when he left the team. Still hoping for the Intelligent Hulk movie in the near future.
May 1, 2015 8:20 pm I thought James Spader did an excellent job on this. Never thought Ultron to have such personality but it makes sense in the movie. The only thing i really hate and did not understand about the movie was Thor's vision in that well thingy. What was that all about? Also I am usually okay that the movie counterparts should look similar to what they look like in the comics but when Vision conjured up that cape i thought to myself, why would he need a cape? Maybe if Vision came out of that chamber with a cape already attached to him then I'd reason out that Ultron because of his insecurities wanted to be like a god (just like Thor) hence the addition of the cape. Overall still enjoyable. The action scenes were great and i actually liked this film better than the first one.
August 3, 2014 3:58 pm They could set The Runaways in the 90's with the sensibilities of Saved by the Bell or like Parker Lewis Can't Lose.
August 3, 2014 3:23 pm There was that coccoon again in the end credits behind Howard. An easter egg for Adam Warlock perhaps? It showed up in Thor 2 as well.
May 25, 2014 8:11 pm Did anyone notice the seamless levitation scenes here (pertaining to Magneto and Storm's). You kinda expect a tug from wires watching these films but these were done perfectly. Anyway, glad to hear Ron's voice again. He should make more guest appearances.
May 9, 2014 7:51 am I was annoyed that Talia's character was diminished to a damsel in distress, Deathstroke's voice acting was just annoying and Batman was making out in the cave with Talia while his son is being beaten to death by Deathstroke. WTF DC?!
May 4, 2014 6:50 pm Superior Spider-Man was great. Can't believe none of you guys followed it.
