Because Mr. Mousie is the best husband known to man, his present to me for Mother's Day was to get a babysitter for us to go to see The Avengers. (It is turning into a tradition of sorts - last year it was Thor).

LOVE! LOVE!!!!

I was especially impressed how Joss managed to have so many main characters and give them all character development, depth and individual voices.

1. They had Tony/Pepper. EEEEEEEEE!!!! I don't know why I ship them so, but I do.

2. Tony Stark was my favorite character in this and, of course, I drool over Thor who is always awesome (btw hooray for continuity mention of Jane), but the biggest shock was Captain America - I found him rather underwhelming in his own movie but I totally fell utterly in love with him here. He's just so good guy it hurts. Is there going to be Captain America 2? Say yes, please.

3. I really liked this take on the Hulk. Mark Ruffalo might be my favorite Hulk even over Edward Norton because he just owns the laid-back scientist with the ever-present edge of desperation (and view of hulk as this other, not him at all). I have zero interest in the hulk but I do love Banner.

4. Last but not least. I desperately need Hawkeye/Black Widow fanfic. I mean, come on, they hit every OTP kink I didn't know I had! Oh God, please tell me it's out there!

So, link me to your thoughts and any good Avengers fic, please!!!

We just got back from Captain America, which wasn't bad but didn't grab me as much as the Iron Man movies or Thor (those I adored). Didn't help that (a) Chris Evans is not really my cup of tea (b) love interest was boring - I spent most of the movie slashing him with his BFF (c) come on, make the Nazis the antagonists, not some Nazi-type group.

I am usually not a picky action/superhero fangirl (I loved GI Joe) but this was merely OK.

Two best things about the movie? After the credits, they show a teaser for The Avengers and I want want want want! Any movie that has Samuel L. Jackson, Tony Stark AND Thor in it, is getting my fangirl money and hormones asap.

Second thing? They showed a trailer for John Carter (which used to be 'John Carter of Mars since it is based on Edgar Rice Burroughs book of the same name, but I guess they thought it would be unhip or something) and I would have been making grabby hands at the screen if possible. Read the book ages ago and enjoyed it - I am very prone to cheesy Victorian/Edwardian adventure novels. Plus, any movie that stars Taylor Kitsch (what an appropriate last name!) as a long-haired angsty warrior wearing little more than leather straps has my vote of approval. Trailer:



Not so good? The trailer for new Spiderman. Ugh! The first of the three Raimi Spidey movies was less than 10 years ago, why on earth does it need a reboot? Also, it looks horrible and the leading man is just - no. Tobey Maguire was perfect in the role despite not looking like my dream man. This guy is the blandest thing since sliced bread, perfect for the boring trailer. People in our theater actually laughed at it, which doesn't bode well.
