✰Avengers: Age of Ultron review✰

Hey! So, I saw Age of Ultron on Thurs. I have quite a bit to say on the subject. Before we get started, let me say a few things. 1- I went to a double feature, and didn’t get much sleep the night before, so I was tired during the movie. If I wasn’t so tired I think I would have enjoyed it more. 2- I did enjoy the movie. There were a lot of things I didn’t like, yes– but overall I liked the movie. 3- I was reading people’s reviews and rants about AoU on tumblr, so a lot of my ideas are not from me.

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD

Now, I think I’m going to start with what I didn’t like about the movie.

The main thing I didn’t like was what Joss did with Natasha’s character. In CA:TWS, she had a lot of character development. In AoU, that was all stripped away to make her a flirty love interest. I don’t mind that she is in a romantic plot, but she was acting totally out of character. Some of the time, like when she was with Clint, or when they were all fighting, she seemed like herself. But with Bruce she was different. I think I would have minded the love story less if they had hinted at it before, instead of just throwing it randomly at us. And Bruce falls on top of Nat,,, it’s just– ew.(I mean her boobs were in his face. It was too much) I don’t want to hate on Brucetasha shippers. If you ship Brucetasha, that’s completely fine! And it’s not only because I ship Clintasha, although that is part of it. But it’s the fact that Natasha’s whole role in the movie was to be Bruce’s love interest. Out of all the Avengers, of course it’s the female who gets captured, and of course Bruce rescues her, even though Clint was the one who found out where she was. Again, I have read other’s opinions on this subject and I am using them in this. This next thing especially was not a thing I thought of. She says she’s a monster because she can’t have children. All her scary, dark, traumatic past, was the fact that she was sterilized. Not the fact that she killed innocent people, or anything else. Some normal women can’t have babies either, and that doesn’t mean they’re monsters. She had to be the one to calm the Hulk down. And she wanted to run away with Bruce? That was probably the most ooc thing she did in the movie. It does not seem like she would do that. I am sorry if you are offended by any of this. Feel free to give your opinions in the comments!

Clint’s family. The main reason I didn’t like this was because I ship Clintasha really hard. But it also just came out of nowhere. They could have at least mentioned it in some other movies, but they just threw it in here.

I didn’t like the flashbacks as much as I thought I would. I understand that Thor’s was leading to Infinity War and Ragnerok, but I wasn’t really a fan of his flashbacks. I also wasn’t a fan of the fact that Thor didn’t have that big of a part in this movie, either. And Natasha’s backstory– I wanted more of it. It also focused on “graduation day” a lot, instead of things like her having to kill other girls in the Red Room. I did enjoy getting to know more of her past though, the part with the ballet was cool.

I hated that Pietro aka Quicksilver died. I understand that it fueled Wanda, but still. This was the first movie he was a part of, and he died it in. I really enjoyed his character, and I wish there had been more of him.

Now, let me talk about the things I did like.

Clintasha. Clintasha obviously wasn’t romantically canon in this movie, as much as I wished it would be. But it was platonically canon, and I could imagine it to be romantic. At the start, Clint gets shot and Natasha calls his name and goes to him, which gave me shippy feels. Also after Wanda messed with everyone’s heads, and Natasha was acting different because of it, and Clint had his arm around her… And how she interacted with the kids was great. They were even going to name their kid after her… God, I ship them so hard. Also when he was recovering and she joked about how “pretending to care about him really brought the team together” or something along those lines and he smirked and ughhhhh. Feels. At the very start of the movie when he got shot, and she called his name, and he said he didn’t have a girlfriend, I hoped Clintasha might have a chance. Sadly, I was wrong.

I loved the party scene, that was one of my favorite scenes in the whole movie. The team joking around was great. I loved how Helen Cho was saying she’d go if Thor went. And I love how Maria coughed and said “testosterone”. And I loved how Tony and Thor were comparing wives. I mean, it’s not like they’re objects to be compared, but I was glad to know they still existed.

I love love loved when Steve said “language” and everyone kept teasing him about it, that was one of my favorite parts of the movie. And when Tony was hoping there would be a secret door.. I loved all the comedy in this movie!

The twins were pretty awesome. The movie didn’t really mention the fact that they were held away in cells, which we saw in CA:TWS, but their characters were amazing. I was a big fan of Pietro, and him and Clint are one of my fave brotps. Wanda messing with everyone’s minds was cool, and I liked how aware she was of everything. She knew things about everyone, obviously because she was messing with their brains, but yeah it was cool.

Ultron was an awesome villan. He was truly weird and creepy and crazy. The fact that he attacked Jarvis, and how much he could learn in the first few minutes of his “life”. I thought he was a cool villain, definitely a villain I wanted to hate.

Vision was pretty cool, him and Thor being buds was pretty awesome. Caped crusaders right there. I hope we’ll get to see more of him in future movies, I want to see more of his character.

Well, that’s all I have for now. Feel free to comment what you thought!

☺︎☻Top Ten: AoU moments (from trailers, TV spots, and clips)☻☺︎

Hey! I’ve been super excited about AoU lately! We already got tickets, and we’re going to the double feature! Anyway, in anticipation of AoU, I made a new post category- Top Ten. So, I post my top ten of something, and I have 50 words or less to explain why I chose that.

In this post, I’ll be saying my top ten moments from AoU clips, trailers and TV spots!

 

10. Maria

I’m so excited that Maria is going to be in this movie. I wish we would get to learn more about her, but I doubt that will happen, at least not in this movie. Either way, I’m glad she’s in this movie!

9. Steve ripping a log in half with his bare hands

This was actually from a leaked clip, I think. It shows how strong Steve is, and it’s pretty badass. So yeah, this was just pretty dang awesome.

8. Team jumping

The team re-assembles! It’s nice to see them being teammates, especially since we know that in this movie Ultron and the twins tear the team apart.

7. Steve and Nat being bros

Basically when he drops his shield, and she throws it back to him. And then when he throws her the shield so she can use it to attack an Ultron. Steve and Natasha are probably my brotp, and it’s cool to see them being awesome and working together.

6. Clint speaks

Clint actually gets to be himself, sans mind control. (Well, Wanda might mess with his brain part of the time, but..) Sadly, him having a wife, along with Brucetasha, rips apart my otp. 🙂 But I’m glad he gets a bigger part— he deserves it.

5. “I just slipped.”

Steve is just so sassy when saying this. Tbh, to me he sounds kind of ooc, but it’s still funny that Steve is saying that after throwing a motorcycle. So yeah, it’s pretty cool.

4. Bruce’s shrug + “murder bot”

Bruce referring to Ultron as “murder bot” was pretty funny. This scene was tense, so it’s not like it was the best scene, but. Also when Tony says they weren’t close to making a murder bot, where they? And Bruce does that adorable shrug, saying yeah, we were.

3. Pietro and Wanda’s accents

ACCENTS. 😍 slAy ME PIETRO. That accent was the greatest. I really shouldn’t be falling in love with a character from only seeing trailers, but *shrugs*. Wanda’s accent is great too. As if I wasn’t already in love with almost every Marvel character, now I’m in love with even more.

2. Domestic!Avengers

Def one of my fave AoU parts. The lifting Mjolnir scene, before being so rudely interrupted by Ultrons, is my fave. It’s like fan fiction came to life. It was great to see them just chilling. I hope we’ll have even more of that in the movie.

1. Natasha’s past

I definitely think Nat deserves her own movie. But, if they won’t give her that, it’s good that they at least show us some of her past. She is one of my all-time faves, and I really want to know more about her, and her past. I’m so excited!

 

So, those are my top ten moments from what I’ve seen so far of AoU. What are yours? Tell me in the comments 🙂 Until next time,

✰New ~Avengers: Age of Ultron~ Trailer!✰

Before I start talking about the trailer, here’s a link in case you haven’t seen it yet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZoO8QVMxkk    So, check that out and then come back. I’ll be talking about it while putting approximately the time in the video the thing happens, so you can follow along. Okay, let’s get started. (I’m watching the trailer without sound, so I wouldn’t be commenting on sound stuff) Warning- Possible spoilers and slight language ahead. 

0:03- Hawkeye is moving people out of the way. In the first Avengers movie, he helps civilians out of a bus as well. He’s(one of) the Avenger(s) who makes sure the civilians are safe. Some people may think it’s because he’s a crappy superhero who can’t fight, but c’mon. He’s nice. He’s saving people. If aliens or robots invaded where you live, you’d want to be safe, right? And who would make sure of that? Hawkeye.

0:05- This is thought to be Scarlet Witch. And according to another blog, this could reference possible tension between Hawkeye and Scarlet Witch. (From a cool blog: ihearthawkeye.wordpress.com)

0:09- What is this?

0:13- My brother pointed out the Avengers symbol on Cap’s shoulder. BUT LOOK AT MY BABY. He looks scared or worried. Frankly, I’m pretty scared for this movie. I don’t want anything to happen to any of the Avengers. I don’t cry at movies, but this could be the exception, as the trailer brings intense feels. If the trailer makes me so emotional, the movie is going to be worse.

0:15- HAWKEYE! It’s going to be so nice to actually get to know his character more in this movie. It’ll be nice for him to actually get some screen time for once.

0:20- ULTRONNN. Yikes.

0:23-  Okay, but can we talk about how gorgeous Nat looks here? Damn. But it seems like there might me something going on between Bruce and her, which worries me. I ship Clintasha, so I’d much rather Nat end up with Clint.

0:28- Bruce seems to be having some problems in Age of Ultron. Like, a lot of problems. Here it looks like he might Hulk out.

0:31- In Agents of SHIELD, Fury burned his eyepatch, but I guess he got a new one.

0:33- Who is this??

0:35- I was looking in the background and I saw Nat’s red hair. I like red hair.

0:36- Tension between Thor and Tony, yikes. I spotted Clint in the background, yay! Every time I see Clint it’s nice. Yay for more Hawkeye screen time!

0:38- So is this Scarlet Witch fighting Tony? I figure at the start of the movie the twins are bad, but by the end they turn good.

0:39- (I don’t have sound on, but I remember this line) I’ve seen this line in a lot of edits, lol. “We have no place in the world.”

0:40- Fetus Nat !! Poor baby though, getting tortured. But I’m excited to see her past on screen! She really deserves her own movie. Damn you Marvel. (Nah, nah, I still love Marvel, don’t worry) The first few times me and my bro watched this trailer we couldn’t tell who it was, but then I realized. (Her eyes, for some reason, made me think it was her.) Those bangs tho. But wow, she is the most beautiful woman everrrr. She is absolute perfection, ahhh. (Btw, I think I’m bi, lol.)

0:48- A lot of clips show a snowy setting. Does Marvel have a thing about snow and cold? First the Winter Soldier, now this? And they never actually release the movies in the Winter, xD. (At least it’s not winter in the US when they release them)

0:52- Big ass guns. Really though, butt shot. Yay for objectification of women!!1!

0:53- That hair flip.. 😍  Words can’t describe her beauty.

0:54- Andy Serkins again. (He was also in an earlier trailer) Rumors say that he’s a link to Black Panther.

0:57- Steveee don’t get hurt bby..

1:00- The clip of Hulk and Nat is a little longer this time. Again, Brucetasha seems pretty possible. 😰

1:03- NOOOO Thorrrr 😭  Are his powers malfunctioning?

1:05- Scarlet Witch? She looks badass 😎

1:06- More tension between the babies 😟

1:12- The science bros..

1:14- At least we still have a tinge of Marvel’s usual humor.

1:19- I wonder what happened to Bruce..?

Well, there you go. My thoughts on the trailer. This movie will be the end of me. Cri.

2.07: Is the Hulk scaring Nat?? Or if not, why is she so scared??

2.08: ScienceBros.. 😥

2.18: THOR AND CAP DEAD???!!!???

2.22: Okay, creepy!

OKAY so wow. MANY FEELS. Also in the non-extended trailer, we see Bruce in a straightjacket. What is happening to poor Brucie? I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS. Here’s a leaked clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w75cwgEjnQ4 <– In that clip Tony and Steve argue, and Steve rIPS A BLOCK OF WOOD IN TWO! And I’ve heard people say that he rips it when Tony references home, and Steve doesn’t have a home… hhhh But also apparently they’re at Clint’s farm… so Clint has a farm.. which gives me ideas for Clintasha fan fiction, and I’ve seen some already. Well, that’s all for that… excuse me while I die
