Yeah, I'd say skip the extra cost of the 3D - £11.40 our tickets cost!?!! And I barely used the glasses - especially after my friend sat on his and broke them and I gave him mine! ;D
I didn't know at time - though it wasn't hard to guess watching it - but it sounds like it was retro-fitted into 3D after being filmed normally, so aside from the full-on CGI stuff, the 3D looks more like lots of two-dimensional things spaced at varying distances - quite rubbish.
Definitely if you get the chance, watch Iron Man, Thor and Captain America (and Iron Man 2) and then Avengers again. It should link up far better.
Yeah, I really want to now, especially the Iron Man films, 'cause Robert Downey Jr. was funny. I think of all the lead-up films I could have watched, the two Hulk films were probably the least effective in setting up for this one.
@ Simey - I think the best of the lead up films was the Incredible Hulk with Ed Norton - it was surprisingly awesome. And I am pretty sure the two hulk films are independent of each other...
I'm happy to agree to disagree on that.
I think I'm in a minority of just me and my brother, but I really like the first Hulk film and thought the second one was quite dull. And of the three recent Hulks, I reckon Edward Norton was the miscast one. But, as I say, I don't find much agreement with me on those films.
I think you're kind of right: when Hulk didn't do that well, I think they went for a semi-beboot - the second film picks up Banner where the first one left him, but they don't stay faithful to the events of the first film as far as the backstory of the second goes.
Don't get jealous - no clue why it's that way round this time, but it's normally vice-versa.
Hey - who's gonna get The Dark Knight Rises first!?
Lastest movie I saw isn't a blockbuster. It's a French comedy-drama called Intouchables (it will be released in English-speaking countries under the name of The Intouchables). It tells the true story of a rich tetraplegic who hires a young offender to help him as a caretaker. It's not one of those movies where the actors bluntly declare their emotions, as we often see with this type of story. The whole thing is more subtle, there's a lot of funny moments and it is very enjoyable. It's one of those feel-good movie, just like Forrest Gump was IMO.
It is not out yet in English-Speaking ountries, but I know the Americans will get it on May 25. As for the UK, I don't know when it will be out.
French-French. The movie was released in Europe back in Fall 2011 and it has only been two weeks since it crossed the pond to reach me. I personnaly know a tetraplegic (he's even on our city council) and a lot of things shown in the movie is similar to his own life (apart from the fact that he didn't need an offender as a caretaker!).
Sounds really good if it can realistically deal with such a difficult subject whilst having plenty of humour too. Impossible to imagine what it must be like to have tetraplegia, but for someone to deal with it to lead a full life to the point of serving as a councillor is very inspiring.
