Age of Ultron

Recovered, a year after the fact, from the Facebook Dredge:

Non-spoiler, throwaway comments on "Age of Ultron":

Not only does the werewolf get the girl, but damn! What a girl he gets. (This refers to a longstanding local discussion which plays into a movie subplot.)

There is a moment, about 2/3 of the way through, when we laughed longer and louder than we ever have in a movie before. Ever. It wasn't really all THAT funny, but it was just absolutely PERFECT. (It involves Thor's hammer; you'll know it when you see it.)

The big, "Setback" battle at the end of the first act was muddy and much too long. This made me nervous. Fortunately, this problem was unique to THAT battle.

I have been in love with Natasha Romanov since about a decade before Scarlett Johansson was born, and I continue to be impressed with how well Marvel and Johansson are bringing her to the screen. (Taciturn, solitary, loyal, ruthless, violent, damaged, and (peculiarly) ethical is NOT an easy path to walk.)
