PiercingMetal Thoughts: Honestly I don’t think I have anything left to say about this film other than I am surely excited to be seeing it after all the trailers. I have avoided the last couple that they’ve been showing on television because I am at the “too much already” point with trailers and starting to think they are spoiling more than we might like but I digress. I loved the first “Avengers” film and have been pleased as punch with all of the offerings that Marvel Studios have been putting out there. Are you readers with me on this? I mean come on, how awesome was “Guardians Of The Galaxy” and how thrilling was “Captain America The Winter Soldier”? Great stuff but now back to “Avengers: Age Of Ultron”. Sadly I am not seeing the film on opening day based on my having a rocking show by Vamps from Japan later on tonight along with a heavy weekend itinerary right after that. My plan is to see this on Tuesday with my buddy Skeleton Pete at our usual spot of the Union Square Regal Cinema.
More about the film can be found via its official Wiki entry but unless you want the whole movie spoiled for you I would hesitate doing so until after you have gone to the movies. If you don’t care then by all means be my guest. That is all I have right now. Please let me know your thoughts about the film and if you are seeing it but please do NOT post any spoilers here as that will suck for all of the folks that did not get to see it immediately. Oh yeah and don’t forget that tomorrow is “Free Comic Book Day” so find your local shop and make sure that they are participating so you can get some free stuff.
