    Avengers: Age of Ultron 2015

    ★★★½ Rewatched 10 May, 2015

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    OK, this film's not perfect and there were some disappointing and/or annoying parts, but here are my thoughts now:

    The good:
    - James Spader. Nails all his lines.
    - VISION <3
    - The one-liners. Joyous.
    - Brony sciencing montage
    - Thor. Thor being badass. Thor getting sh*t done. Thor bringing the lolz. THOR. BRING ON RAGNAROK.
    -Mjolniry goodness
    - Nice bit of reverse fridging
    - Almost balletic…

    Perfection. The only problem with this film is it reminds you of the pointlessness of Jackson making The Hobbit trilogy : P

    Special mention to New Zealand.

    Much awesome visuals. Many time travel. Wow.

    (I am prepared to overlook the problems I had with the plot and the characterisation because (a) Hans Zimmer, (b) the robots and (c) that water planet was mm mm terrifying. Good job, CGI dudes and dudettes)
