The Avengers On Acid

25 May

I went to go see Marvel’s Avengers in 3D last night with the spouse.  To say that I’m not really a comic book type girl would be an understatement. Although there was a time in College when I had a Girls Kick Ass sticker on the back of my SUV and wore a Wonder Woman shrunken tee.  I went in knowing the basics about all the characters, The Hulk, Captain America, Thor, and the others I jut used context clues and figured it out. It’s a pretty non super hero following friendly film. Even though aliens, heroes, and bombs are not my thing I still enjoyed it. There were even points when I was looking at Scarlett Johansson and thinking, I could totally shoot a weapon like that and kick alien butt. I guess, Zumba and the elliptical make me feel qualified to be a super spy. I also strongly believe that Mark Ruffalo was put in the movie just for myviewing pleasure. I made a vow about 10 seconds into his first scene that I will see every single movie that man ever makes for the rest of his life. Because of his astonishing acting skills, of course. Robert Downey Jr. was hilarious, but when I look at him my first thought is, I really really hope he stays off the crack and my second thought is how good he looks for an older guy in tight fitted clothing.

I left the movie realizing how much I truly miss the movie going experience. Even though I have seen a dozen studio lots and I know all about special effects, I still enjoy the ride. I also decided that 3-D is definitely not my thing. I was actually panicked and had to practice deep breathing for the first 5 minutes, then I was nauseous through the first half of the movie and left the theater with a monster head ache. If  I were the type of person who had ever tried acid in high school, I would say that the 3-D adventure must be quite similar to what it would be like for me, just a crazy guess. The last decision I made was that I need to keep going to the gym everyday. Even though I will never be as ripped as any of those actors, I am paying a bloody fortune at my gym and I am going to get my money’s worth trying to look like a super hero.
