Monday Movie Review

Avengers: Age of Ultron
This was mine and the boy's first movie together in months, and what a movie it was! I love these Marvel movies, so it wasn't a surprise that I really enjoyed this one as well.

I think what's so neat is how this whole universe of movies fit together. Not only that, but there's the tv show too. Which honestly is one reason why we had to see it this weekend, because I'm sure this week's episode of S.H.I.E.L.D will refer back to the movie, and we didn't want any spoilers.

I especially loved the interactions with all the superheros, but do think there could have been a little less action. Although considering it's a superhero movie it's pretty much expected.

According to the boy, they cut cameos of Pepper Potts, Jane Foster, and Agent Coulson. While I do agree they weren't really needed, I still would have loved to have seen them. But maybe they'll be in the deleted scenes once it's out on dvd.

Definitely a lot of fun. And if this is the only movie I wind up seeing this summer, I think we made the right choice.


  1. Glad to see this was good. I think we'll probably see it sometime.

  2. I enjoyed it, too. They also cut out a Loki scene.

  3. I wish they would have kept Coulson! I did love it. I'll be seeing it again.

  4. You definitely have to be more discerning in what movies you see once you have kids and rare movie dates!

  5. We really enjoyed it, although I was surprised by the Hawkeye and Black Widow storylines after it had seemed Avengers and Winter Soldier were setting them up to be a couple. I liked how Agents of SHIELD really tied in and I wish there had been some way to have the characters riding on the helicarrier or something - although I guess they think Nick Fury is still dead so that couldn't happen!
