Finally saw Avengers, nine months after everyone else.

Like, that wasn't bad? But it wasn't great either? idek. As with Inception, I'm sort of not understanding some of the shipping that dominates fandom, the film was a good twenty minutes too long, and someone needs to hit Joss Whedon with the 'not as clever as you think you are' stick.

But overall it was OKAY and now I can go see Iron Man 3 without feeling too left out.*

Except that I can't be arsed to see IM2. Oops.

* I am not actually dubious about Shane Black as we love Kiss Kiss Bang Bang in this household and will not hear much said against it.

I didn't like the Avengers as much as everyone else seemed to, especially the actiony parts at the beginning. I was kind of bored and not sure what was going on. But I liked the casting and the character-y parts.

Heh, I feel like I will prolly never see Avengers, tho that is partly that I have v. little attention span for movies & I am thus likely to spend it on things I actually want to see.

You are missing precisely nothing in skipping IM2. In fact, you would probably regret the precious minutes of your life ruined by watching IM2. I know I do.

Yes, this. I don't hate IM2 as much as a lot of people do, but it's not necessary to understand IM3.

This is good to know! Because I haven't seen it either, and I would make sure to see it between now and IM3 if necessary, but I'm short on time, so if it's not good anyway, I won't bother.

I haven't seen either Avengers or Iron Man 2! I have plans to see IM3 with friends next weekend, though, so I guess I will try and watch IM2 before then. Maybe I will try to watch the others, too. (I feel like I should watch Thor and Captain America before Avengers? idk)
