Top 10 Films Of 2012…So Far

Note: “The Avengers” was NOT SHOT in 3D but I will say it’s one of the best conversions I’ve ever seen. The same company who converted “Titanic”, Stereo D, converted this film and it looks very solid. Also, the film was NOT SHOT in IMAX. Whedon did not use 70mm film to shoot this movie. Therefore, you’re best bet is to see it in a regular 3D digital theatre. Just as a reference point, an evening show 2D ticket is $12, a 3D ticket is $16 and an IMAX 3D ticket is $18. I say go for the $16 3D experience. (Prices for AMC Theatres in Tyson’s Corner, VA)

There is an action scene in this film that lasts less than ten seconds which is worth paying the entire price of admission to experience. I still have tears in my eyes from the epic nature of that sequence. All I will say is that it involves Hulk and Loki. While “The Avengers” is flawed, a bit too long and convoluted, the action scenes will easily evoke nerd tears out of any comic book or action movie fan. I don’t understand why this movie is even called “The Avengers”. They should have just called it “The Hulk” because he steals every single scene he is in. Until I sat in that dark theatre a couple of weeks ago, I found myself oddly worried about Mark Ruffalo taking on the iconic role. The part has never truly been mastered considering Eric Bana’s version is one of the worst movies of all time and Edward Norton’s version was decent. Though, the problem is that I never truly felt an emotional connection to those actors playing Bruce Banner. Ruffalo brings this bad-ass yet very subtle and sweet vibe to the Hulk where you actually care for him in human and super hero form. Through performance-capture technology, Ruffalo was able to give the Hulk character an arc that we can truly believe in. I honestly just wanted to give Hulk a hug after the movie was over!
