✰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!

✰New merch!✰

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a normal post, hasn’t it? Well, wait no longer. Recently I got some new Marvel merchandise. I saw a post on Tumblr, someone said they got their first piece of AoU merchandise, a box of Cheez-Its. Naturally, I wanted some too. And now I have some! The Cheez-Its have designs on them. There is a design for each of the main six Avengers, excluding Hawkeye. There is also a design for just the Avengers symbol. Hawkeye is included in a game on the back of the box, though. Here is the post I saw, if you want to check it out: http://marvelrepresent.tumblr.com/post/110603481790/today-i-bought-my-first-piece-of-official I haven’t start eating them yet. I’m hesitant because they’re so cool and I don’t want them to be gone.

I also got a Groot POP! bobblehead. It’s really cute and cool! Now I have Groot, Steve from CA:TWS, and Coulson POP! bobbleheads. So that’s cool 😄

Lastly, I am now the proud owner of a Captain America necklace. (It’s his shield) I already had a chibi Captain America necklace which is really cute, but I love this new one even more. I wear it almost every day! I love it way too much, lol.

I’m really excited for AoU to get closer, I want more merch. I really wanna get some posters and stuff, but other than the Cheez-Its I haven’t seen any AoU merch.

Anyway, that’s all for now!

✿Agent Carter 1×01 + 1×02: Pilot + Bridge and Tunnel (Also: Ant-Man trailer)✿

(I couldn’t figure out the correct name for the episode, so the title of this post may change later.)

Hello again, agents! After a short hiatus, I’m back and ready to blog! Agent Carter premiered yesterday, and it was AMAZING! It was a two-hour premiere, so I’m not going to go over the plot-line. BUT, I still have quite a bit to say. I absolutely love Peggy Carter, and Hayley Atwell is an awesome actress. I love how the character defies gender stereotypes, especially since there were so many more back then. Colleen seemed like a nice character, so I was sad to see her go. But what I like about Peggy is that she kicks butt, but she isn’t an emotionless character. I love Melinda May, but she is very stoic, not to say that is a bad thing.(I have been told I’m stoic) But Peggy can kill people, and throw their expectations right back in their faces. When her friend dies, though, of course she’s going to cry about it. It seems that some female badasses these days are strong and kickbutt– which means they can’t have emotions. Or at least that’s what the creators of those characters seem to think. So I like the fact that Peggy is tough and has emotions. It sucks for Peggy, though, dealing with all that sexism. It sucks for all the girls back then, and all the girls now. (Although I think things are somewhat better now.) Angie(The girl working at the diner), had to deal with harassment, and she was just trying to do her job. Angie seems like a nice friendly character, and I kind of ship her and Peggy–oops. I like Daniel. He doesn’t expect a whole lot from Peggy, but overall he seems like a nice guy. And I adore Jarvis! He kind of reminds me of Alfred from Batman. Jarvis is funny and nice, and I love his accent. I also hope we see some more of Howard. And I loved the references to Captain America.

Well, that’s all I have to say for now. You can expect another post or two coming later today. Bye for now!

✰Flu shots✰

So, today I got a flu shot. My arm is sore right now, ugh. You should probably know that I hate shots. I do not like anything medical-related, and I’m sort of a hypochondriac, so I’m always afraid I’ll have a reaction to the shot. I also have anxiety, and I sometimes get panic attacks over stupid things. Anyway, I wore my Captain America shirt(Well, one of them.). I wore it last year too, which was the first year I didn’t cry when getting the shot/before the shot. I thought that Steve would be brave in the situation and stuff. It’s kind of stupid, I know. But the MCU is really important to me. Steve and Fitz are very, very, important to me. I wish Fitz was real, so I could hug him, and help him, and be a friend to him. I almost declared him my favorite character of all time, but then I remembered Steve. The main reason I like Steve so much is because he’s nice, caring, and selfless, and I admire that. If only real guys were like them…

(I’m not trying to say guys aren’t nice and selfless, but I’ve never loved a real guy like I love these characters.)

✰Buddies✰

So, I’m in an art class, and the teacher knows that I’m pretty dang obsessed with Captain America. So she told me of a boy she teaches. He’s 9 years old, and obsessed with Captain America. He carries a Captain America shield around everywhere. In his art class, he’s doing a whole lesson on drawing shields/targets, and he gets to design his own shield. My teacher said she was telling me because she wanted me to know that I wasn’t alone in my obsession xD.

If I ever met that boy, I’m sure we’d be buddies.    ☆
