What Wally Pfister said about Avengers:

"What’s really important is storytelling. None of it matters if it doesn’t support the story," Pfister, who won an Academy Award for "Inception," said when asked about the most crucial part of shooting a film. "I thought 'The Avengers' was an appalling film. They’d shoot from some odd angle and I'd think, why is the camera there? Oh, I see, because they spent half a million on the set and they have to show it off. It took me completely out of the movie. I was driven bonkers by that illogical form of storytelling."
I do see what he's been saying after watching it a few times. There are some odd composition shots, like when they're all arguing an they show the staff upside down seeing them, and Nick Fury from an angle in the beginning.

The shot of them arguing with the camera moving around weirdly was for story telling and not just to look cool though. It gives the scene a dreamy vibe and it focusing on the scepter is indicating it's influence on them.

I didn't like the dutch angles though. They used too many of them in the first Thor as well.

Wally isn't perfect anyway. The guy can't frame an action scene for ****. Although i really like most of his compositions. The Joker leaning out of the cop car... Batman standing in the rubble with Dent's coin. Class.

People think dreams aren't real just because they aren't made of matter, of particles. Dreams are real. But they are made of viewpoints, of images, of memories and puns and lost hopes
