    Age of Ultron

    I went last night and knowing that the first one would be the standard, I wasn't all that disappointed.

    Some really good stuff (Hulkbuster fight).

    So, who is the red-skinned guy they cooked up?

    My references are to the original books (old) so I'm out of the loop on that guy.

    I enjoyed it. I was slightly disappointed but that was only because I had unreachable high hopes for it. I was disappointed in a couple things but not terribly disappointed.

    A fewe high points are Hawkeye, Vision, and the humor that Spader brought to Ultron. The tag scene midcredits was good. There is no end of credits scene. Don't wait around.

    I am either going tonight or tomorrow. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D has been dropping a lot of references to Avengers over the last couple of weeks. I will be interested to see how much their storylines have come together.

    At the very end of the episode Tuesday night, Coulson was talking to Maria Hill and told her it was time to bring in the Avengers.

    Dude, the Vision came around in 1968. That's as old-school classic Avengers as it gets.

    Is Ulron a robotic version of L. Ron Hubbard?


    If you can take advantage of a situation in some way, it's your duty as an American to do it. Why should the race always be to the swift, or the jumble to the quick-witted? Should they be allowed to win merely because of the gifts god gave them? Well I say, "Cheating is the gift man gives himself." -Charles Montgomery Burns

    "Ulron"? Is that the Chinese knock-off version?

    Ulron's classic book, Visionetics, at one time nearly took the world by storm.

    Re: Age of Ulron

    Great movie, it was impossible to reach the standard set by the first Avengers, and the mixed reviews tempered my expectations quite a bit before I went in. That said, I was entertained. I loved Ultron's origin, but was a little disappointed by how cartoonish they made his character by giving him all these quirky one-liners. Almost reached Mandarin levels of disappointment for me, but he was still a decent enough villain. Why Marvel can never make a truly menacing villain is beyond me.

    If anyone is ever considering it, I would not see this movie in 3D. Although I saw the movie in 2D, I think I would have left the theater hurling into a trash can if I saw it in 3D. The film just wasn't made for it. Do yourself a favor, save the extra cash and see the 2D showing.

    I'm taking at least one of my boys this weekend. He's really looking forward to it.

    Re: Age of Ulron

    I saw it last night, really enjoyed it. Don't know if it's as good as the first one, but then few comic-book movies are.

    Being a big fan of the X-Men (although my interest level has dropped somewhat recently with the decline in quality of the comics, IMO), it was really interesting to see what Whedon did with the Quiksilver and Scarlet Witch characters and their origins, and I thought it was handled about as well as it could be handled.

    It really is too bad that the X-Men are owned by a different studio and corporation than all the rest of the Marvel characters. A couple of years ago there was an X-Men Vs. Avengers crossover storyline in the comics that was just amazing. A movie version of that would have been just as epic as the new Star Wars movies.

    Saw it last night. Pretty good action scenes and humor in this one.

    Re: Age of Ulron

    I haven't seen the movie yet, but had a dream last night that I was part of the Avengers. We were battling James Spader, who was an Iron-Man type character - he had a powerful alien suit that he could put on/take off as he wanted. With the suit on he was evil, but with the suit off he was neutral/chaotic and helped us out. It was like a mashup of Ultron and Reddington.
