The Avengers (2012)


Steve Rogers: Thor, what's his play?
Thor: He has an army, called the Chitauri. They're not of Asgard or any world known. He means to lead them against your people. They will win him the Earth. In return, I suspect, for the Tesseract.
Steve Rogers: An army. From outer space.
Bruce Banner: So he's building another portal. That's what he needs Erik Selvig for.
Thor: Selvig?
Bruce Banner: He's an astrophysicist.
Thor: He's a friend.
Natasha Romanoff: Loki has them under some kind of spell. Along with one of ours.
Steve Rogers: I wanna know why Loki let us take him. He's not leading an army from here.
Bruce Banner: I don't think we should be focusing on Loki. That guy's brain is a bag full of cats. You can smell crazy on him.
Thor: Have a care how you speak! Loki is beyond reason, but he is of Asgard and he is my brother!
Natasha Romanoff: He killed eighty people in two days.
Thor: He's adopted.

Movies it Took me Multiple Viewings to Appreciate

People who added this item 4260 Average listal rating (2747 ratings) 8.1 IMDB Rating 8.3


I think it was the pacing that threw me, and the fact that I was 9 when I first saw it. But I rewatched it as a teenager, and was able to appreciate it as the masterpeice it is.

I just didn't get the twist the first time. But for some reason the second time it suprised me so much more, even though I knew what was going to happen.
