A little documentary suited for guitarists

8.4/10

Kinda wish they'd have picked someone different than Jack White but it was still all good.

Looks interesting.

Jack White is an underrated musician.

I recommend it man. It's not that I hate Jack White. I just don't particularly care for him. Can't really get into more than three or four of his songs. And them just throwing him in there with two huge legends (Page more so than Edge) is just different.

White's story growing up is pretty cool though. He's definitely a unique character.

I actually only really know one song; 7 nation army.

It's such a good song.

Although I prefer Audioslave's cover of it to the original: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZmVPD1qak2c

Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale



7.5/10 A little disappointed in it after wanting to see it for about a year and a half. But it was still entertaining and short enough to not overstay its welcome.

They only acted in that. Was written and directed by David Zucker of Airplane! and Naked Gun fame.

Avengers = 9.3/10

Don't want to give away too much, but it was awesome except for some of the cheesy forced comedy. ( ) This is an absolute must see for anyone who like superheroes.

Before the movie, they showed a trailer for the Amazing Spider-man, from the trailer it looked pretty intense. It also seemed funnier than last trilogy (like spidey is supposed to be.) Can't wait for this one.

Marvel's The Avengers - 8/10

Loads of a cool action and funny. Though i'm never going to give in to the idea that it's ok for writers/directors to tell 1/4 of a story and call it complete just because there were some previous books/sequels/back stories that they assume all the viewers already knew about. If i didn't know most of these characters stories already, i'd feel pretty lost, and this would just be a big action movie with little substance.

But if you do know everyone's story (even as far as to recognizing Maria Hill) then it's a pretty fun watch that leaves you wanting more by the end of it. I can't imagine watching it more than twice though. It's the type of movie that's basic (for obvious reasons) so after you get over the thrill of seeing your favorite heroes, one-liners, and sweet action, there isn't much reason to get into it anymore; and you're left praying for a sequel.

See I disagree completely with you on that first point.

They need to STOP devoting so much time and energy to origin stories. Just a little bit for a character, and then establish them through the narrative. Otherwise the movie drags. And that happens in this movie. The first act drags severely.

If you have a well developed/established character like these ones or say Harry Potter and such you shouldn't have to tell their stories to catch up everyone else.
