    Love the opinions on this show

    Awesome, but I disagree completely about Iron Man. You somehow turned a blind eye to that movie’s shitty stuff, the only reason it was a more coherent film is because it was able to focus on a single hero, there are too many to follow in this one, and yet Joss made it work. But both Iron Man and the Avengers are fun, not serious action movies. And of the two, this was superior in both fun and action.

    Remember the last fight with Jeff Bridges in Iron Man and tell me that was not stupid (worst part in my opinion)

    Anyways love the cast, just remember your nitpicking isn’t limited to the movie you’re talking about, but also the ones you compare it to. Also it’s hard to take Yoshi’s critic-mode seriously knowing he can watch and enjoy the prequels. Just sayin…

    Well spoken sir. I agree wholeheartedly with nearly all of that.

    I say the style of the review should reflect the style of the movie. This movie isn’t a slow methodical collection of buildups, it’s a fun ride that doesn’t blow it’s wad too quickly, and maintains healthy balance of characters while not delving too deep into any one aspect of film-making. This movie should have been reviewed like Ricky-Oh style.

    Usually I nitpick just as much, this time I was able to chill, I know they were too, but I suppose if Dave, Jitter and Yosh just hi-fived each other over how great it was, that would make for a pretty lame flix episode. They could have gone ‘goodfellas’ just a little though, for the sake of how awesome this movie was.
