The Avengers

This year started off with a bang with the record breaking blockbuster “The Avengers.” This film could’ve been a disaster but with Joss Whedon behind the lens and his skill with ensemble casts and love of the genre he really did a fantastic job with this film. It takes everything that we loved about the films that led up to it, smashed it together and turned the dial up to 20! And what a wild ride it was. Whether it was seeing the team fully assembled, New York City amidst an alien invasion, or Hulk whipping Loki around like a rag doll, the movie gave just about everyone something to cheer for. And the final scene was a true geekgasm for comic fans everywhere and set the stage for what is looking to be an even better Phase 2. The sting of the Blu-Ray special addition being pushed back is still fresh, but as we draw closer to April, it fades and my hands are anxiously waiting to hold my own version of the Tesseract.
