The Avengers (Bruce Banner - the Hulk & Thor)

Bruce Banner: In case you needed to kill me, but you can't I know I've tried. I got low, I didn't see an end so I put a bullet in my mouth and the other guy spit it out.

Security Guard: Are you an alien?
Bruce Banner: What?
Security Guard: From outer space, an alien.
Bruce Banner: No.
Security Guard: Well then son, you've got a condition.

The Avengers (Captain America - Steve Rogers)

Tony Stark: He was an idiot!
Steve Rogers: He was doing his job!
Tony Stark: For taking Loki alone, he was out of his league!
Steve Rogers: Is this the first time you've lost a soldier?
Tony Stark: We are not soldiers! I am not marching in Fury's fight!
Steve Rogers: Neither am I! He's got the same blood on his hands as Loki. Right now we've got to put that aside and get this done.

Natasha Romanoff: [discussing attacking Loki] But he's a god!
Steve Rogers: Ma'am, there's only one God, and I'm pretty sure he doesn't look like that.

The Avengers - The Re(al) - view

Nick Fury: There was an idea to bring together a group of remarkable people, so when we needed them, they could fight the battles that we never could...

A lot of super hero movies have come and gone since 2009's The Dark Knight, but unfortunately none have even come close till a super-dude named Whedon, Joss Whedon stepped up to direct a movie that brings four established super heroes (who each own their franchises), one bad-ass super sniper, a skilled spy, Nick Fury, Agent Phil Coulson as the super - suit! And Loki!!!

The action is overwhelming and super-awesome, but the interaction is genius as the screenplay brings the best out of all the characters' personalities, movies and then some. This was a movie that was aimed to be fun and it exceeded expectations.

I can hammer on the script, cinematography and special effects for the rest of this review but I'd rather concentrate on the characters as, in the words of Todd Jorgenson, The Avengers is the equivalent of a super hero all star game.

The Avengers (Tony Stark - Iron Man)

Day 3 

Tony Stark: Let's do a headcount: Your brother, the demigod; a super-soldier, a living legend who actually lives up to the legend; a man with breathtaking anger management issues; a couple of master assassins; and you've managed to piss off every single one of us.
Tony Stark: Not a great plan.
Loki: That was the plan.
Tony Stark: [to Bruce Banner] You really have got a lid on it, haven't you? What's your secret? Mellow jazz? Bongo drums? Huge bag of weed?

The Avengers Week

This week is all about the hottest movie on the planet (at the moment), and It's going to comprise of a Re(al) - view and several quotes (there are so many memorable ones - the screenplay is that good!) + pictures.


Steve Rogers: I wanna know why Loki let us take him. He's not leading an army from here.

Bruce Banner: I don't think we should be focusing on Loki. That guy's brain is a bag full
of cats. You can smell crazy on him.

Thor: I care how you speak. Loki is beyond reason, but he is of Asgard. And he is my

Natasha Romanoff: He killed eighty people in two days.

Thor: He's adopted.

Thank you, Joss.
