  1. I saw it Friday and thought it was fantastic. Usually 2 1/2 hour movies drag, but there wasn't a single filler scene and the dialogue was great. Definitely want to see it again!
     
  2. Thank u so much ;) He had a blast and we all enjoyed the movie.
     
  3. I can't wait to see this movie! If I can't get anyone to go with me I'll go alone for all I care!
     
  4. I saw this yesterday and fell asleep during the movie! *embarrassed* BUT, I had a good reason - I am suffering from jet lag.

    From what I saw when I awoke, the movie was entertaining and surprisingly funny. I'm seeing it again next week :biggrin:
     
  5. I saw it yesterday and loved it! I dont read comic books so I was wondering if someone can tell me whats the next movie going to be in the series.
     
  6. Me too- I'd pay to see it again. Damn, I only saw the 1st clip at the end.
     
  7. So happy that you enjoyed the movie. :biggrin: Up next from Marvel Studios is Iron Man 3 on May 3, 2013 and Thor 2 on July 26, 2013. It is also very likely that The Avengers sequel will release the first week of May 2014. HTH!
