Hello friends :)….well, I’ve been contemplating doing a review on the new Avengers’ movie. But I don’t want to be biased. I actually really liked the movie despite some of it’s flaws. My hubby and I saw it for his birthday. I grew up on comic book characters. It was nothing for me to pretend to be a super hero. I Loved X-Men and Batman. I doodled my own comic strips during school hours. They all starred me….cough* and I usually had some kind of magical horse or the ability to shape shift. My arch enemy was Snake man. Anywho, so for you to get a good review with both the good and bad side of the movie you’ll have to go here:

Anytime you have super heroes and bad guys you’re going to have violence. Really I don’t see how it’s any different than old western shows my parents watched. The heroes just have better weapons and so do the villains unfortunately. The Avenger’s comics have been around since the 60’s and have evolved throughout the years.

My biggest issue with the new movie is the cursing. If you want to see the Avenger’s without any cursing then you can check out the cartoon on Netflix: The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. It combines story lines from over the years and will definitely please fans. My other issue would be the way women dress. It’s not so bad in cartoon form and my family has enjoyed watching the show. We also had this issue with the old star trek show. We skipped the parts when alien girls came out. I guess society thinks all women dress this way. Seriously, if you’re a super hero wouldn’t you want an outfit that makes it easier to fight bad guys? Yeah, I’m thinking camo…

Thor doesn’t bother me so much since according to the comics he’s not really a god but rather an alien that’s stronger than humans. My favorite part of The Avengers movie is when the Black Widow tells Captain America Thor and Loki are kind of like gods and then Captain America says “There’s only one God and I’m pretty sure He doesn’t dress like that.” I wanted to stand up and shout. Seriously….awesome line.

Anywho, our family doesn’t have cable and it’s rare to find shows on Netflix that we all enjoy. In the beginning we had the old Star Trek series & so guess what we were for the Fall Festival…well, except Chris…he was William Wallace (Braveheart)

Then we enjoyed Cosby until they took it off of instant :(. Now we have the Avenger’s cartoon and all three of us like it. I guess I have this in common with my guys…I love super heroes. I’m a total nerd. So in a ways the Avenger’s bring us together….and who knows what we’ll be this fall festival…..he he he (evil laugh)

God bless and Remember The High King Lives! ~Amber Dover
