No, sorry, I got that backwards.
And entirely wrong, for the sake of joke.

For the two of you out there who actually watched Battleship. Can you reactivate the Missouri?

Well, first off, I am not a comic fan boy by any stretch of the imagination, so that being said, I may have been a bit underwhelmed due to lack of knowledge.

However, Captain Rogers had no 1911, the conflicts between the characters seemed forced, the resolution of Hawkeye being brainwashed seemed contrite, and the whole underlying tension between the Avengers just seemed forced as well. That being said I still enjoyed it.

I like the character development between the main guys. I didn't however like how Hawkeye got taken from the good guys almost at the start of the movie and then almost at the end of the movie was brought back. I was hoping we see more of him in action but not as a mind controlled bad guy.

I didn't like how the stand off scene where it ended with Banner holding the staff was going. It seemed like no one was questioning why they were suddenly at each other's throats and why they stopped arguing when it was over.

It was nice to see Captain America pick up a gun and shoot however brief that was. If we look at the context of just the movie character without the knowledge of the comics, we do wonder why Captain America stopped using a gun especially brought into battle where aliens are shooting at him. It just doesn't seem to work when in one movie he used a gun and another he stopped. I was hoping for scenes of him being amazed at how firearms have advanced since he was asleep.

And I still found it odd that Black Widow went into battle against an alien invasion with just 2 Glocks and not full size Glocks, subcompact Glocks. In the comics, she uses full size assault rifles on occasion. One issue cover had her posing with a FAL. I would of loved to see that in the movie.

In the comics Hawkeye was trained by Captain America, but that was the original story

G.I. Joe 2 pushed back.

Yeah the movie seemed way to angsty for my tastes.

I just watched Avengers awesome throughout sure the hawkeye thing was annoying and could have been done better but it was awesome.

Men In Black 3 was pretty good; better than the second one, in my opinion. We made the mistake of seeing it in 3D, though, which was just a waste of money (I didn't even really notice the 3D)

We ran by HEB afterwards to pick up a few things, and I snagged Open Range off of the impulse rack while checking out

Just saw MIB 3 and it was good for the most part, especially the ending and Josh Brolin playing young K. But it seems like the characters didn't age well or grew up for the most part. Will Smith is trying to act like he acted in the 90s with Agent J and a lot of the jokes in the beginning just aren't that funny.

We also see a bunch of Kris TDI Vectors in an armory

Also watching Hatfields & McCoys. Someone want to do this series?

Yay, more Channing Tatum...
