2 outta 3 aint bad

So spiderfriends I’ve seen 3 of the four super hero movies that come out this summer.The first two extremely enjoyable with one of them being a huge surprise and the third one being a minor disappointment.

Thor was a good flick it was fun, enjoyable and not dumbed down for the kids. I and my nephew both enjoyed it quit a bit. It was your basic superhero movie. Kat Dennings was great in it and they didn’t over use her even tho she was only there for comedic relief. Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston were great as Thor and Loki. I do wish the Warriors Three were used more but it is a Thor movie and not a movie about them.

The movie that surprised me the most is X-men First Class. Because of the previous 3 X-men movies I did not have high hopes for this one. In fact the only reason I went to go see it is because Avary wanted to see it. It was amazing. If I would have seen it before hand I wouldn’t have brought Avary to it because a decent portion of it is in German and Russian, but he still enjoyed it.  James McAvoy who played Charles Xavier and Michael Fassbender who played Magneto were amazing. It was such a character driven story and they take such care of the characters that you forget about the 3 previous X-movies.  The affects are great and it was good to see Banshee. I was also pleased that they started with Beast before the experiment went south. Seeing as he is the only one in the movie who was in Xaviers first class it was nice to see that he was handled well. Avary and I both really enjoyed this movie, even tho there wasn’t much action it was an extremely great superhero movie.

As far as the Green Lantern it was a decent pop corn flick. It was dumbed down some for the kids and there was more drama than there needed to be. When your power is a ring that can bring anything you can imagine to life you need to do more than a race track, gun, and two planes. You can see what they were trying to do but it didn’t work. I was pretty disappointed in it but Avary really liked it. A friend of mine made a great point that Ryan Reynolds would have played Kyle Rayner better than Hal Jordan. Seeing as Kyle was more of a joker and that’s what Reynolds plays best. Also the villain was a bad choice maybe if they chose The Manhunters or had Sinestro go evil in it, instead of hinting at it in the end.

 
So all that leaves is Captain America : The First Avenger. I am really looking forward to this one. It has a Rocketeer feel to it that I’m really liking. Plus there is this amazing poster that Paolo Rivera made! This poster REALLY does it for me. I love it, and now I’m even more excited to see it. This advertisement definitely worked!

    Oooo, now I’m really excited to see Thor and the X-Men movies after reading your blog (for one thing, I didn’t know that Kat Dennings was in Thor–love her)! Captain America, too.
