Dual Movie Review - Marvel's The Avengers and Battleship

Within the past two weeks my wife and I have saw Marvel's The Avengers and Battleship in the theater. Just quick little review of both.
The Avengers ... is freaking awesome! I did not expect it to be that good. You know when movie is good, when everyone claps at the end, that it is the sign of a truly good movie. Again, very good movie, they did a good job giving all the heroes their face time. My favorite from past movies is Iron Man, and he did not disappoint in this movie. But I think the mac daddy in this movie is the Hulk ... ah, let me correct that ... is "The Incredible Hulk" because he was that awesome. For the female perspective, my wife really liked it too. This is a definite watch in the theater, and a buy on disk when it comes out.

I made the mistake of seeing Battleship before The Avengers, having heard nothing bad about the Avengers and having two many expectations for Battleship, I was personally disappointed because at the time I felt that Avengers was probably a better movie and should have watched that instead. These are two different movies and I am not comparing them, I am just enlightening you to my mindset as I watched them both and you can make your own conclusions.

File:Battleship Poster.jpg Battleship, I have been waiting and excited to see this movie ever since I saw the trailer a few months ago. That being said it ended up being a little bit different than I was expecting; it was still a good movie and is a helluva feel good movie, you will smile to yourself, your heart will swell up, and if you have every served in the military or been close to someone that has you may even get goose bumps. It is based off the game Battleship, and as hard as it may be for you to wrap your head around, they actually did a good job portraying it and not making it too cheesy. Good special effects and overall a well done movie. If you have already seen The Avengers, then check it out in the theaters, if not I would say a good buy movie/great rental, myself I will be buying it on Blu-ray when it comes out. Female perspective, my wife thought it was "just" alright, her feelings were not anywhere near close to mine

If I can only see one? If you can only see one in the theaters, see The Avengers, but definitely don't forget to check out Battleship on disk when it comes out, if was still a good movie, but for the time being if you are going to watch one in the theater, watch Avengers. ct
