Avengers: Age of Ultron (Action 2015)

Haven't been back in the theaters for a while, but a good Marvel movie is always worth it in my opinion. Here's the funny thing with most comic book films. The first time you watch one, it all seems like the coolest thing since sliced bread because the stories go so fast, action is everywhere, and they purposely throw humor into the mix. But then six months later, only after you have had the opportunity to watch parts of it over again, do you notice how artificial most of it truly is.

So yeah if you liked the first Avengers, then you'll certainly enjoy this one...it's just more of the same with more characters and hijinks, but it was indeed entertaining. Was it a thoughtful piece of cinematic art? No, but I'm sure if it had been, I would've fallen asleep within the first hour since the action was the only thing keeping me awake. I'm so not used to bypassing midnight while watching a movie anymore.

This film, along with all of the spin-offs are all building up to the Infinity Wars; should be an exciting new series.
