I bought it, watched it, and I like it. I like the dry humour that keeps the movie from getting too soapy :P And I like James Spaders "Ultron"-performance. He makes him human, almost more than the real humans.... I really wanted to see him as the "bad guy", but instead I felt pity for him, he's almost like a child that has been badly misled and now isn't able to find his way back and has gone completely out of control, because he takes his programming literally , and he's trying to aspire perfection at any cost.

Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner is also well played. One can see the struggle in his face every time, how despises and fears his other self. All in all I can say that IMO the movie is well-played and well-done, even though there's a little too much CGI for my liking at times (reminds me of Viggo's comment on ROTK). For me, it was worth watching.

Now, next on my "to buy"-list is "Guardians of the Galaxy". Has anyone seen it?

Haven't seen Ultron yet, but have seen Guardians. I liked it, and I'd watch it again, just for Groot!

Just finished watching the second season of Agent Carter, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns March 8th :D .

"We made some strong choices with Natasha in this movie and it’s a tricky arc that she has to play in the film. You always want to surprise people, you don’t want to make choices that are easy. I always said what I loved about Breaking Bad is that Vince Gilligan always wrote himself into the hardest corner. I would watch an episode and go, ‘I have no f—king idea how he’s going to solve this next week,’ and he would solve it. That’s compelling narrative, that’s compelling storytelling to me. We made a similar choice with her on this film, but it’s tricky because you have to monitor constantly throughout the filmmaking to make sure you’re getting the subtleties of the arc and what she’s doing."


Captain America: Civil War co-director Joe Russo on developing Black Widow’s storyline.

Translation…. “We’re fixing the garbage that Joss made of her character arc and it’s gonna be epic”

(via softpunkbucky)

Ditto the above, but man, I really hope this doesn’t mean they’re going to kill her off. :(
