Day forty-nine: Avengers: Era of Ultron (April, 27)

Joss Whedon was still with me the day after In Your Eyes with the new installment in the Marvel's franchise by Universal: Avengers: Era of Ultron.

Except for the first and last fight scenes, I wasn't overly impressed. It was a nice chapter in a spectacular series of movies, but not overwhelming, as I as expecting. Maybe it was the wrong day to see it. And the wrong screen - I chose one by the movies' time, but I missed a bigger screen in order to really enjoy it. Yeah, maybe it wasn't the right day, because a good action's movie doesn't subordinate itself to those aspects. 

However, as I said: those fight scenes were amazing - they brought a big smile to my face. Some jokes are getting old, though, even if there are some good ones, as always. The relationship between the Black Widow and Hulk looked goo in the trailers, but it flunked big actually, absolutely against the character's nature. At last, the absence of two feminine characters was annoying - due probably to avoiding increasing the the already crazy budget with more payments or cast availability. I understand the practicality of that, but sounded ridiculous all the references to them. But the ever attempt to relate some scenes, as a picture, to the comics was great. And that is a big accomplish, even in the wrong time and place for me.

PS: I'm really missing Daredevil


  1. I'm not a fan, but I will say this: I started watching Daredevil on Netflix and it is a whole hell of a lot of fun :) Foggy is adorable and the fight scenes are quite spectacular.

    1. Daredevil is amazing. Too good in every aspect. A relief and a hopeful expectation for other Marvel's productions.

  2. Celina is making plans to see it next tuesday. The hype is way too high.

  3. Pier was overly crowded today because the many Avengers' screenings. It was surreal even. But I've read many contrary reviews and seen a lot of unsatisfied fans.
