Discussion in 'Marvel's The Avengers' started by Thread Manager, Apr 21, 2012.
This is a continuation thread, the old thread is [split]379579[/split]
Since the worldwide April release is in about a month, and reviews are usually released a few weeks before, we should get a few early reviews in the coming weeks.
So this is just getting ready for that.
just to repost thelodimide's (apologies if i spelt that wrong) post from the other thread.
WARNING about the MTV one, i heard it ruins every plot point in the movie, but I'm not reading it as I want to hold out, so be careful if you do read it.
LOL it's ok no need to apologize
Here's another from huffingtonpost.com posted yesterday
Channel 4 in the UK are gonna be doing a feature on the Avengers tomorrow at about 11.10am. So they will probably do about a twenty minute segment showing the trailer with cast interviews.
Yay, thread manager!
So far, so good with the critical reviews. I do expect the US embargo will be lifted soon, like maybe the Friday or Monday before TA's domestic release.
Well a few big US sources have broke the embargo anyway. Wouldn't be surprised if more do. And if they continue to be glowing, i doubt Marvel/Disney will have any reason to complain.
Damn, hopefully earlier than that. I want to read most of them before I see the film.

Really liked that little video collage they did. I especially enjoyed the use of this little piece here for The Avengers part.
Man I love the score for Hulk but never realized it was Elfman. How the hell did I miss that?
It was quite the distinctive score. It really is unrecognizable compared to most of the stuff we're used to hearing from him.
Great score indeed.
My favourite comic book movie score, right behind Burton's Batman 89 one.
Ah, fresh thread! We can only hope that this one stays on topic and doesn't get derailed by people with rusty axes to grind.
The Yahoo UK and needcoffee.com reviews posted in the last thread are very good.
I posted the yahoo one on the other thread, you should put spoiler alerts
Yeah, I guess the critic reviews on the domestic front might start trickling in next week. I really just want The Avengers to release a critics' blurb ad that doesn't automatically start with some random review that I've never heard of.
I'm thinking we'll be seeing a TV spot with blurbs from THR and Variety very, very soon.
BTW, Morningstar - fantastic Fassbender avi!
So this has a 96% score on Rotten Tomatoes but the one review that is supposedly rotten gave it a 3/5, is that really rotten?
Thanks. Dat Fass!
I wouldn't consider it rotten, I think anything above half way should be considered positive. But the critic themselves chooses whether it should be rotten or fresh.
It's about as high a score as you can give and still choose rotten (I believe the reviewer gets to choose how it is marked on the site).
Also the review if you read it is not really that negative.
Thanks a lot for that, I didn't even know!
On a side note, I've booked my IMAX tickets to watch this next Saturday with my girlfriend & my younger brother. They're both looking forward to it as much as me
Yeah that mtv review is just bad karma all the way. Hopefully the "reviewer" is paying the price, though since we are talking mtv I doubt it.
I'm surprised the # of reviews on rt hasn't budget since yesterday.
I'm guessing there's going to be a lot more on April 26 since some countries are already showing the film on the 25th, expect some negative reviews as well.
"Marvels The Avengers earns glowing reviews"
Recap but great BUZZ and promotion!!!
The reviews are more glowing than those examples might sugest.
