I don’t have a baby of my own, but I have been around babies… Nevertheless, I may not be the right person to weigh in on this. I’ll put aside the debate concerning, “The baby wants my phone, so I got him a toy phone,” (ie, the baby should play with baby toys or we should fool the baby into thinking they are playing with my toy) and instead just concentrate on the idea that the baby is playing with an Iron Man phone.
This… This just doesn’t seem right to me for a reason I can’t put my finger on. I am very curious about the phone as it appears to be one of those call the characters deals. What do they say?
“This Hulk. HULK SMASH!!! … Why baby cry?”
“I am Thor, God of Thunder! My enemies and the enemies of earth shall feel mjolnir’s wrath! I will smite all those that threaten peace, justice and afternoon nap time!”
“Hey, it’s Iron Tony! I mean… Sorry, I’m already drunk.”
You get the idea.
After our first two episodes, I suddenly had a desire to mix it up and bring you a fully scripted skit that tells the story of what happens when two people disagree on a movie and things get out of hand. Why? Why not, I guess. I imagine everyone is going to see Iron Man 3 anyway, and I get the feeling that it’s not going to be the sort of film that merits a lot of discussion, so whatever – I decided we should just punch each other instead of talking.

Sure, I’ve seen Christmas stockings with characters on them before, but it has always been someone cute and cuddly – not fucking Iron Man posed to do something violent. Maybe I can get one with Captain America punching the Red Skull in the face on it…
I finally got around to seeing The Avengers this weekend, and a good time was had by all. At least half of the audience clapped at the end, which doesn’t usually happen in a movie theater, but it was that kind of flick – people wanted to stand up and cheer. After living with these characters for five movies, maybe this is what the audience always wanted; but if you didn’t see Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America, I don’t blame you if you were thoroughly confused.

If you haven’t seen the new Avengers trailer, check it out:
Crazy, right? Even the characters in the movie are surprised when that big thing chasing Iron Man comes around the corner.
I guess we’ll find out what the big fucking thing is and how they beat it this summer!
SPOILER: It probably doesn’t kill all of the Avengers.
Oh, and I guess the movie is called “Avengers Assemble” in the UK because when you say ‘The Avengers” in the UK, they think of the spy-fi TV show and not of Marvel’s swash buckling comic book heroes.

Superhero movies are sprouting up faster than I can keep track of, and by the end of this summer, who knows how applicable this list will be, but I just can’t wait that long. So, in no particular order, I most humbly present to you my incomplete list of The 10 Best Superhero Movies of All Time. Read the rest of this entry

After watching the Avengers TV show trailer, I don’t think this is going to work. I’m sure it’ll be better than Marvel Superhero Squad, but will not be able to reach the bar set by Justice League and Justice League Unlimited. The fundamental problem might be that the show is being produced for Disney XD, which makes sense as Disney now owns Marvel. Here are some issues I’m seeing:
The animation isn’t looking so good. Did you see Captain America’s shield spinning? It looks… weird. I guess it’s rotating too slow for how fast its moving. It’s not just that, though… there’s something a bit off.
The theme song is TERRIBLE. Take a page from Justice League’s book and go with an instrumental. This song rocks.
Just the little bit of dialogue I heard was HORRENDOUS.
However, they’re going with a strong, traditional line up:
Ant Man/Giant Man
The lineup pose at the end of the commercial seems to imply that Iron Man is leading the team, which isn’t especially traditional, but whatever.
I’m not willing to kill the show yet – I’ll give it a chance, but I’m setting my expectations low, and I advise everyone else does the same.
