Commentary: The Avengers (with Sofa Dogs!)
Join John Pavlich of Sofa Dogs and me as we walk thru The Avengers (the loud American one, not the weird British one). We fail to remember what happened in Thor, discuss the structure and character motivations, and general enjoy it. John accuses me of being negative because I think the idea of an Iron Man suit that shoots out of a wall, chases down a falling Tony Stark, opens itself, and somehow puts itself on him while he’s falling is a dumb idea. He also has to explain Loki’s plot to me, but I remain dubious. (What is his plan for Hulk again?)
I’m watching the Blu-ray. Start the film after the logo fades to the tesseract (0:00:28), on the countdown.
