Worth seeing !
Joss Whedon has done it again with this sequel to the first Avengers movie and it is as witty and thrilling as the first, if not more.
The cinema was full down to the very last seat next to mine , which was occupied by a little girl who wouldn’t stopped complaining about how boring the movie was . (I’m pretty sure she was the only one who felt this way. I tripped her on her way to the toilet . Not sorry )
In this sequel , the Avengers team up once again to go against new baddie Ultron ; a super computer determined to destroy Earth. The same old special effect tricks are applied , buildings are blown up, destroyed, etc, but it doesn’t get boring.
There were some new faces and we get our first look at the new set of Avengers including the Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and Vision (played quite well but all too briefly by Paul Bettany) .
All in all, a great experience minus that annoying child.
Next on my watch list is next years’ Batman vs Superman movie . Why do we have to wait so long for these things?
In other news , we have started our next house project.
The mission? To get our cat to build a garage.
He’s doing quite well so far.
I remember having a conversation with a friend a couple of months ago ( I remember everything ) about the definition of a ‘hipster’ and what it means to be one. If you have been living under a rock and still don’t know, please go to Brickwood coffee house in Clapham Common here in London for a visual demonstration of ‘hipster’.
Exhibit A – our water
It’s not good water unless it has mint floating so close to the opening that you can’t actually get the water to pour out. Lovely . Frustrating, but lovely.
Exhibit B – Jars fecking everywhere.
I’m pretty sure somebody had to empty a gazillion tin cans of golden syrup just so my cutlery could be comfortable.
Exhibit C – Beanies
This was my favourite. Beanies hung up with wood pegs. There was a ‘For sale’ sign up there but we all know that there is an endless supply of beanies somewhere in the basement probably.
Needless to say , I loved all of this . My banana bread even arrived with espresso butter. I have no idea what espresso butter even is but I finished it without question. You don’t ask questions in these places.
