I only watched one movie this week and it was the only movie that I needed to see. To say that this is now one of my favorite movies wouldn't even do my excitement and passion justice. I sat in my seat, squirming, bouncing up and down, and beaming with joy as I endured one of the greatest cinematic experiences of my life. Yesterday, I watched THE AVENGERS.
My little sister will be the first to tell you that I'm kind of a nerdy girl. The most recent time she proclaimed it, she walked into my bedroom, eyed my shelf and started naming off the items that were on it. "Green Lantern, Spider-Man, the Mach 5 from Speed Racer...you are such a nerd, Jessi." As she rolled her eyes, I just beamed with pride. I love superheroes. While I've always had a huge geek crush on Spider-Man, over the past few years my fascination with all of the other superheroes has only exploded. I can't have enough of Iron Man, Thor and Green Lantern, just to name a few. I sleep on Spider-Man sheets and fall asleep staring at a Spider-Man movie poster. And although my main man wasn't a part of The Avengers movie, it was still absolute perfection. Well, obviously. I can't stop gushing about it to whoever is within earshot.
This movie is hilarious. While I love the characters they play, the actors themselves are brilliant together. They all just seem to glow, and I laughed til I cried. I genuinely adore these characters and they just happened to have damn funny things to say.
After all, who doesn't love a superhero? Anyone who doesn't have even a slight interest in superheroes is a liar. They are some of the most fascinating "people" that we "know." We all admire something in them and they are all human enough that we can somehow relate to each one of them. Whether we're cocky, dorky, brainy, or strong, we can relate to superheroes, we respect them, and therefore, we will always love them. So thank you Avengers, for keeping the nerdy girl alive and well within me.
