Bottom Line: THE AVENGERS is my new favorite movie ever and the first I have seen with real actors (just like my dad saw STAR WARS when he was my age). I was really excited to see it – but am now sad because I can’t see it for a first time again. It was a little dark in the beginning but then got really, really cool. It was awesome and I can’t wait until my dad gets the Blu-ray so we can watch it at home every night. We’re going to see it again next week. It was awesome – can I say 'awesome' twice?
