Courtney's Favorite Movies
A fun, well-written and well-acted movie! There was a danger that it the movie would end up like a shallow intersection of flat characters (like a Valentine's Day or New Year's Eve for superheroes) but not on Joss Wheadon's watch. Joss Wheadon has grown as a storyteller since his Buffy days, and since he was great back then, he's even more amazing now. The talented actors bring a rich depth to their iconic characters. I was worried that Scarlett Johansson would be the weak link of the movie, but even she was great (I shouldn't have even worried, Joss Wheadon knows how to handle is strong woman warriors). Marvel's Avengers is so much fun to watch and quote with your friends! Best line of the movie? "He's adopted." So. Awesome.
One of the best movies ever! I have no complaints. And I'm not biased because I watched Firefly after seeing this movie. The story is awesome (Joss Whedon is a freaking genius, no surprise) the characters are so likable and the special effects are terrific! I can't believe Nathan Fillion isn't super duper famous. Seriously, he kicks all sorts of ass. So beyond wonderful!
