5 Reasons You MUST Go See Avengers ~ Yes, Even YOU

I know what some of you are thinking. “I don’t like Comic Book Movies”. Let me tell you, this is more than a Comic Book Movie!

I “like” a lot of movies. I even find myself occasionally “really liking” a movie. But rarely do I fall in “LOVE” with a movie. I only say I LOVE a movie once in a blue moon. I think people way over rate many movies out there. I promise never to do that to you. I’m a tough critic on movie Love.


By far one the best freaking movie I’ve seen. Definitely top 5, maybe higher.  You will not regret your decision. I’m not going to do a movie review. Others do a way better job than I. But I will share my five reasons those of you who don’t think you want to see the movie, why you should.

Here is why (in no particular order)

1.  Avengers is more than a comic book movie – You do not need to be a superhero fan to watch this movie. This movie falls into the group of movies that make you feel good. The type that makes your heart warm when people triumph over adversity. You feel good the whole movie. If you did like comics as a kid, then it makes it just that much better. But definitely not a requirement.

2. Non stop action from beginning to end.  One of the few movies that truly need to be seen on  the big screen – Few movies are must see on the big screen. This is one of them. The action scenes are fantastic. Done big. And explosive. You don’t need to see in 3D (we didn’t) and trust me, you get a great experience. It truly is non stop. You are engaged from beginning to the end. I promise.

3. You don’t have to have seen the other movies ~ If you didn’t get a chance to see the other movies they put out prior to this one, don’t worry. You do not have to see them. I had seen Iron-man and Hulk, but not Thor or Capt America. I do not feel it hurt my viewing pleasure. Do not let this stop you. If anything, it has made me want to go watch them now.

4. You will laugh your ass off! – Ok, the biggest surprise. This movie is freaking hilarious. Not funny bad, but sarcastic one liners, great banter between the characters. I laughed my ass off the whole movie. Josh Whedon wrote a fantastic screenplay. Even if you aren’t a great fan of action movies, the comedy is spot on. I laughed so hard!

5. Finally ~ This guy…..

Every good movie has a scene stealer, and in this movie it is by far Hulk. He has two of the best scenes in the movie that leaves the audience cheering and yelling. Yes, the entire theater is  hooting and hollering and clapping in unison. Not many movies do that. I’ve only been in a handful of movies that cause an audience to cheer. The Hulk is worth seeing the movie alone for.


Like I said.



I promise you will feel great when you watching and when done. I promise it is worth the $6 – $10 you will pay to go see it.


Have you seen it yet? Did you love it? No Spoilers… only innuendos so we don’t ruin it for anyone….

Thursday ~~ Yawnnnnnn

Welcome to Thursday! Otherwise known as Is it Friday yet?

Or as Tristan MacManus on Dancing with the Stars would call it… Turdsday…  (funny only if you hear his pronunciation of his “THs”)

Yea, Thursday’s are a day to go to the dentist, the DMV, post office, all those painful things that remind us it’s not Friday yet.

Let’s see what we can drum up for Thursday….Be right back, need to go visit Google.

  • The name Thursday is tied to Thor the Norse God of Thunder (now you know who to blame for why Friday takes to long to get here)
  • We already know that Thanksgiving is always the fourth Thursday of the Month of November (Yawnnn)
  • Quakers traditionally refer to Thursday as ‘Fifth Day’ to discount the pagan origin of the English name ‘Thursday (I’m going take a wild guess they didn’t see the movie either)
  • Thursday’s is the traditional day of elections in the UK (thought I’d give ya a shout out since I said ours were on Tuesday)  😉
  • ’It was widely believed in High schools in the US in the 60’s, that if someone wore green on Thursdays it meant that they were gay (Hell, every gay person knows it’s Saturday!)
  • Most bars have a special today called Thirsty Thursdays due to the catchy title.  (Personally, I think it is to kick off your drinking weekend early)

Ok, that’s all for Thursday. Make sure to check out the last 3 days if you are a new reader or missed them. We will tackle Friday tomorrow…
