Hugely entertaining.  Looks pretty slick in 3-D.  The theater where I saw it was recently renovated and they now have seats with push-button recline / foot rest functions.  There I was, lying back with my feet up.  Just like home.  Except I wasn't in my underwear and slippers.

And there's an inside joke related to Pulp Fiction that made me smile . . . but pay close attention or you'll miss it.

Saw it on Saturday and really enjoyed it.  Loved seeing the familiar sites when they filmed a large part of it here in Cleveland.

I liked it. A good time at the movies.

It strikes me that this current crop Marvel movies serve about the same function today as James Bond movies did for past generations. They're action-oriented big budget spectacles set in a (somewhat) consistent good vs. evil universe. They are less adult-oriented than Bond, but the plots are still pretty dense. They're not great art but they're consistently high quality and entertaining; they feel like movie "events."

I am in the minority in saying that I've enjoyed the stories that focus on the individual characters more than the AVENGERS team up.

They really need to make a standalone movie about the Black Widow. She's a more interesting character than any of the other Marvel movie heroes except maybe Tony Stark. And a movie can't have enough Scarlett Johansson in tight black pants for my tastes.

Much better than I expected. I'd say it's up there with Avengers.

Going to see this on Thursday night, before the Easter Weekend shuts down most of the independent cinemas.  Really looking forward to this!

And the moneymakers just keep on making more money.

It earned somewhere between $96.5 and $101 million its first weekend. A record for April and beating or equaling the combined opening take of the two previous films combined, which earned something like $99 million between them. And beating back a challenge from "Rio 2," which opened this past weekend, it is the first time in sometime that a film was the #1 grossing film at the boxoffice 2 weeks in a rolw.

And the Walt Disney Company is raking it in with both hands. Not only is Marvel now a division of the Company (the $4 billion price tag now looks like a bargain,) so after costs are extracted, it looks like the film will turn a profit, but the Company is also the distributor of note for most of the world. And the money is in distributing a film not producing a film, which often lose money at the boxoffice, as the distribution fees charged are upfront and off the top, before a profit is made.

And you can expect if not another "Captain America" film, which seems likely with the success of the two previous films, but Marvel thinks it can put out 5 films a year, featuring the various Marvel characters. And there are alot of Marvel characters. The Company had their interns go thru all the Marvel comics to see how many characters there were in the Marvel universe, and when the interns were finished, the number of characters stood at somewhere around 8000.

Thus, we shall see what we shall see.

I haven't seen the film, nor do I have any interest in seeing it, as I normally, as in this case, refuse to watch sequels and remakes. Besides my interest lies not in films themselves, but in the financial and business aspects of films. Thus, here are some more monetary statistics.

A decline at the boxoffice of 56% from the 1st weekend, still the film managed to earn $41.4 million at the boxoffice. For a total boxoffice to date of $159 million. That is just the domestic gross. Internationally, the film has earned $312.7 million internationally and is on track to be one of those sequels which earns more money at the boxoffice than the original. None of which is going to come from me, but I think we as Americans have to get use to the idea that with the international boxoffice becoming more important for the success of the film, American filmmakers are going to gear films more and more for the international audience.

#2 at the boxoffice was the sequel "Rio 2," again which I have no interest in seeing, but it earned a more than respectable $39 million at the boxoffice, especially as the original earned $39.2 million its opening weekend. And again, the international boxoffice gross for the original was higher than the domestic boxoffic gross.

And after several years of decline, last year was a good year for films at the boxoffice, and this year at the boxoffice is on track to be even better than last year. Which is all to the good for the American economy, as American films is one of the few American products, where the U.S. makes more in exports than it makes in imports.

More on the business and monetary side of films as it becomes available.

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

If that is the aspect of film that interests you, cool beans.
For me, only one question matters with a movie.
Did it entertain me?

If the answer is "yes", I don't care if it's a DTV piece of shlock from the Asylum or the blockbuster film of the year.
If I am entertained by it, it gets my money.

Saw this over the weekend. Was very entertained. I think overall they are doing a good job with these movies. I thought this was 100 times better than Thor The Dark World. I didn't catch the Pulp Fiction reference though.
