AVENGERS Gag Reel is Superhero-larious!

The Internets were all lit up this morning when I went to check the various movie news sites, with a new gag reel from none other than the Mega-Blockbuster Marvel Movie The AVENGERS!!!

I think gag reels are awesome. It’s a great way to show the fun side of film making, and also to get a glimpse into some “behind the scenes” type situations, like Captain America not being able to pull on his parachute!

Check out the gag reel below courtesy of DailyMotion.com. I did notice some sites were already taking this down however so watch it while you can!

Also, you can listen to the Cinema Recon review of The Avengers here on Episode 05/13/12!!!

The Avengers is Officially a Big Thing

In case you have been living under a rock that is wedged between two larger rocks and you don’t have internet access beneath said rock, The Avengers has officially released in the US today.  Already taking in $300+ million worldwide and having received rave reviews, it is safe to say this movie will set a few records.  If there was ever any doubts, they can be put to rest now: The Avengers is already a success.

Cinema Recon will be seeing the behemoth superhero adventure tonight at the AMC Van Ness in San Francisco.  It’s not a question of if you’ll see it, so I’ll ask, when are you going to catch it?  Did anyone go to the early showings?  Tell us what you thought!

Hey, has anyone seen Spidey or Wolv…oh, right

New Avengers bubble gum reveals EVERY SINGLE DETAIL ABOUT THE PLOT!

Well, if there is one thing Hollywood is good at, it is squeezing every single last dime out of something until the well has completely run dry. Then even after that, they take the bricks from the well and sell them too. Then, they sell the rights to look at the spot where the well use to be. After that, they start working on the second well, The Well: Return of the hole in the ground (starring Morgan Freeman most likely, or Bill Paxton… Bill Paxton would be good too I guess).

Within the last week or two the barrage of leaks has started with pictures and details from all the toy companies, costume companies, etc., on all the superhero toy lines that are on their way off the production lines to help market the movie and to help make them another buck. And while I’m not necessarily irked about  that, everyone loves toys, but Jesus there are a lot of toys out… You can see the Avengers Legos here, or the Avengers board game here, or the Dark Knight Rises action figures here, or the Star Wars action figures here,  or the G.I. Joe Retaliation action figures here, or the Avengers action figures here, or the Amazing Spider-mans Lizard Halloween costume here, or the… holy shit you get the point.

But what really pisses me off, is all these articles say “See the action figures here! Caution toy images contain plot sploilers!!!” …. really? … REALLY? How much can an action figure contain plot spoilers!?!? What is this the 1998 movie Small Soldiers? Are the action figures running around telling everyone how the movie ends? What could we possibly be learning about a 2 hour long movie from seeing a couple Lego building blocks! But upon looking at the images even more I guess they are right, I mean, I’m pretty pissed knowing that Captain America is going to have a hole in his head the whole movie….

Vroom vroom.

I want more satchels dammit! And… and stitching… yeah!

Ok so if you have listened to any of the past shows you have probably heard us talk about the new Avengers movie, and the cast, and our thoughts, etc. You have also probably heard me talk about how I think they have completely ruined Captain Americas credibility by the updates they have made to his costume! Captain America: The First Avenger was a a pretty awesome movie overall. And what made that movie for me, what really grounded it, was the fact that his costume was believable. It was very heavy duty, looked like it was made out of very thick, tough fabric, you could see the stitching on it, it had lots of straps and satchels and shit all over it. It looked like a real, hardcore world war whatever army costume. It was bad ass.

Now fast forward (or if your Captain America just stay frozen in ice) to present day. Cap gets busted out of ice, says word-up to Sam Jackson, enjoys a stein of fine lager with Thor, joins The Avengers, and then gets the lamest costume out of all of them! What a rip off! This guy is Captain God-Damn America people, Show some respect! His new costume is all nice and bright and shiny, no more heavy fabric, and don’t even get me started on the lack of satchels!

I’m just afraid that they are taking a step in the wrong direction and actually reverting back to the costume of the early Cap movies… or not, maybe I am making too much of this. All I know is that when all the Avengers are facing impending doom, backs to the wall, and they need Captain America to gather all the magic power crystals or whatever the fuck ever, and run them over to Iron Man so he can place them in the ACME machine to break the avengers free and save the world all while still using his hands to punch bad guys in the face… he better have enough damn satchels.

Has anyone seen my satchels??? I could have swore I left them up here.

The Hulk IS Mark Ruffalo IS Derek Zoolander!

A few months ago, we commented on how Mark Ruffalo seemed to be doing his best Zoolander impression.

Now, thanks to a wonderful screen by screen recap of The Avengers Superbowl trailer by io9.com, we have a great shot of The Hulk giving us his best “Green” Steel pose:

This is by far our best view of The Hulk yet.  After seeing him cause a ruckus and stand amongst the other Avengers in the explosive new trailer, I for one am pretty excited for what’s in store.  Still, a side by side by side comparison shows that The Hulk is going to need a bit more work turning left:

Ruffalo, on the other hand, has got it nailed

Cinema Recon will no doubt be front and center when The Avengers releases May 4, 2012.  You can check out the extended Superbowl trailer below!
