Wouldn't he be more of a Thor fan?

Tyrosine: chewielouie:

But hey, does the hellicarrier's cloaking device also hid it from radar? I mean that thing is huge. What about its heat signature? And it didn't sound all too quiet. What's the use of something so big, slow and audible?

fusillade762:

Whoa there, slow down. I'm still grappling with the idea of an aircraft carrier that FLIES.


In a movie featuring a magic cube that can seemingly give unlimited energy, two characters loosely borrowed from Norse mythology one with a magic spear and the other with a magic hammer, a guy in a flying metal suit, another guy who can transform into a superhuman monster five times his size, etc., etc. THIS is where you lose the ability to suspend disbelief?

Let it go. It was a couple hours of well done brain candy. Just sit back and enjoy the ride.

/Also, I'm not a comic book fan, can someone explain why they borrowed Thor and Loki from the Norse, but messed with their traditional origin stories? Was there a reason for this or were the original comic book authors just lazy and forgot to fact check?


Stan Lee was taking a lot of drugs at the time.

/Kirby's wife was tough to keep up with.

Besides any discrepancies can be explained away by the Norse men of the marvel universe just not being accurate.

Or... much less elegantly with "Ragnarok Cycles"... Don't ask.

/very confused


Yes, open captioned screening. The writer of the article is an idiot.

There were five other movies explaining that shiat. The part I missed was the point of needing a flying aircraft carrier to be invisible. Is the answer "so commercial passenger planes will hit it?" SHIELD had no motivation to hide from anyone; in fact, they spent the whole movie looking for people.

Oh, and why doesn't the paint ever chip on Captain America's shield? Is the paint vibranium, too? And if it's virtually indestructible how did they attach a handle to it?


What's the melting point on that bad boy? They had to heat it to mold it, yet it survives, nay, reflects any energy blast.

Technically, Captain America's shield is made from a mixture of Vibranium and Adamantium. The makers of the recent Captain America movie decided to not mention the adamantium in the shield so as not to confuse people seen and recognized it from X-men, but are not comic nerds.

Wow, subs. Seeing the exact same "Hulk talk" headline joke over and over sure is funny.

You need to find a theater that doesn't cater to the proletariat.

receive nasty lawyer's letters from Fox who probably has the rights to use the word "adamantium" in movies as part of their X-Men license.

FTFY.

MagSeven: I would have loved captioning. I saw the midnight opening and missed a few lines because people were cheering too much during certain scenes. I also might be getting old because even when the crowd was quiet a few lines were lost to me in the digital mix as well.


I saw the movie last weekend and I just got home from it today.

True story.

As soon as the movie started the entire theater broke out into the largest orgy I had ever seen. It was hulk-a-mania f)ck fest from hell. biatches were screaming 'CAPTAIN AMERICA' while getting pulverized in the ass by giant black dudes pretending to be Thor. We couldn't leave the theater because there were 20 evil green ninjas blocking all the exits.

We didn't need no bullshiat subtitles. We LIVED that movie RAW and in the FLESH you weak ass biatch.

Let's just call it the "audio mix" - the proliferation of words like "digital" and "reference' in consumer marketing have stripped them of all meaning. But I agree - I hate when I'm straining to hear dialogue, only to be deafened by sfx.

And what are the odds that this genius thought pulling the fire alarm would trigger the sprinklers?

Maybe. It's been used in a lot of other instances without suit of law.

* Armor and weapons in The Elder Scrolls games.
* Weapons and armor in Ancient Domains of Mystery computer game. Adamantium ore can also be found.
* In the fictional Warhammer 40,000 universe , in which it is used highly by the Space Marines and the Imperial Guard, in their weapons, armour and vehicles. While still retaining its mythical properties as portrayed, there are even more powerful substances which border on the magical or impossible.
* Armor in Master of Orion II.
* Weapons in Master of Magic. Built of adamantium ore, a terrain bonus.
* Handclock of Atomic Betty.
* Ores and plates in MapleStory, which can be forged into adamantium weapons and armor.
* Armour and weapons in the RPG Guild Wars series.
* Rope in Untold Legends.
* In the Final Fantasy video game series to create incredibly powerful weapons and armor, including in Final Fantasy I to make that world's version of Excalibur. Also, there is a recurring monster in the Final Fantasy series called the Adamantoise, a giant turtle with an impenetrable shell made of adamantium.
* In the novel Gridlinked, the protagonists find an artifact composed of adamantium that was a prison for an energy being. It was commented that since humans only knew how to crystallize the metal that a race who could fashion objects out of it must be much more advanced.
* In the Warcraft Universe, the black dragon Deathwing had adamantium plate scales welded to his body by goblins. In the MMORPG World of Warcraft, a player can receive an armor piece called "Ornate Adamantium Breastplate".
* In "Heroes of Might and Magic IV" you could get a legendary item called the "adamantium breastplate"
* In the film Lost In Space the alien "spiders" were described as having shells of adamantium (however, they could be easily destroyed by gunfire or rocket engines).
* Refined Adamantite is used in Everquest 2 as an ingredient in making tier-7 relic armor.
* In Galactic Civilizations 2, one of the higher armor technologies you can research is adamantium.
* One of the armor types in the game Outpost 2, although never used by any of the included missions or units.
* Adamantium, used in Bram Stoker's 1894 novel Dracula to describe the vampire form of Lucy Westenra.
* The Golden Age: A Romance of the Far Future, John C. Wright
* In the game RuneScape: Also called adamantite or, informally, addy. A type of metal, obviously hard; a high level material. It is an ore, which can be smelted into adamantium bars and then forged into weapons and armor. It can be found trimmed.
* in one episode of Samurai Jack Aku created robots made of adamantium. Jack's sword was unable to cut through them without added strength, first provided by a cybernetic arm and then by the mystical power of his ancestors.
* Metal weapons in Titan Quest RPG Game


But with so much money involved in the Avengers I can see why they didn't bother.

Until they open one of those Alamo Drafthouses in my area, I'm going to stay away from the theaters. Before the Avengers, the last movie I saw in the theater was Captain America (had 4 hrs to kill between meetings) and before that, some Ben Stiller movie. I only saw Avengers opening night because my GF wanted to see it even more than my own geeky ass did. I've got a pretty decent set up at home and I've really grown to despise any crowd that isn't drinking heavily. Theaters that don't show plays or host musical acts and I have fallen way out of love.

In that case, I withdraw my position. One other unlikely thing that might have occurred is that perhaps the writers forgot about adamantium in the shield.

skinink: I can't be the only one who likes to watch DVDs with captioning on, because sometimes you really can't understand what is being said by the actor.
If I was the dude I would have taken the free tickets. Actually I found out most complaints can net you a free ticket because it's the easiest way for the manager to get you to scram.


Plus it gives them another opportunity to sell you popcorn and soda, which is where they make their money anyway.

My family tends to watch movies with captions on at home all the time, even if it's something we've seen already. There's an annoying trend in Hollywood to have quiet scenes where you can't hear what the actors are even saying because it all sounds like mumbling.

Heh. I can remember once my mom was watching some old movie where a bunch of cowboys were being chased through the streets by dinosaurs. She was like "That's silly, why don't they just go inside? The dinosaurs wouldn't be able to get them".

I guess it runs in the family.
