Editor’s note: Back in May 2012, The Avengers actually kicked off this website. For this special Marvel Week occasion, we’ve decided to update the review a bit. But don’t worry, the message is the same: The Avengers is fantastic, and everyone should see it.

Avengers 3

It’s four in the morning, and never before have I been this damn giddy in my life. Every worry has been lifted off my shoulders and the last four years of waiting have not been wasted. Marvel’s The Avengers is an absolutely brilliant and entertaining movie.

Captain America: The First Avenger had the heavy responsibility of setting up the building blocks for Marvel’s most anticipated film, The Avengers.  The film could have been a serious mess of story lines and a cheesy origin story.  Luckily, the film never strays into the realm of completely unbelievable or messy. It does justice to the tale of Captain America, American hero and builds a solid foundation for The Avengers.

Hello and welcome to Marvel Week!  With the release of Thor: The Dark World a week away, we here at Those Review Guys are a little more than a little excited for the newest Marvel Studio’s adventure into the realm of superheroes.  In order to hold us over until the release of Thor, we have decided to have a Marvel movie marathon.  And, of course, a movie marathon turned into a week long review extravaganza!

Currently, Avengers is listed as having the biggest opening weekend in US history, is ranked third on the global all times films list, and has raked in a total of $1,359.4 million worldwide. In the middle of a summer of superhero films, the question is which one is going to win out in the end. And right now, Avengers has the lead.

Superheroes vs. Superhero, sequel film vs. sequel film, huge blockbuster hits vs. huge blockbuster hits, Marvel vs. DC, Iron Man vs. Batman, Whedon vs. Nolan…..the list goes on. While the comparison seems obvious, I am here to say this: Why are we comparing the two films? (more…)

The Amazing Spider-Man, directed by Marc Webb, is Sony’s reboot of the Sam Rami’s 2002 Spider-Man film. Despite trying to distance itself from the original film by having a more realistic and darker setting that it seems that superhero movies are heading towards after the success of the recent Batman movies, The Amazing Spider-Man feels too similar for fans like myself who really liked the original.
