The Avengers (2012)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0848228/

People, don't be put off by the advertisements, this is a good movie. If you think it's another big budget, mindless, eye candy full of special effects you're wrong, this is an excellent adaptation of the comic book series. It's not the Avengers we grew up reading, rather more like the up to date Ultimate Avengers comics line. I'm sure most of you have no idea what that is but that's okay, the story is mostly self contained, you don't have to be a comics fan or had to have seen the other Marvel movies. The fight scenes and special effects are excellent but the best parts are the interaction between the characters, particularly when they're arguing. One scene reminds me of the Blake 7 bridge dialogues. It's written and directed by Joss Whedon (Buffy, Angel, Firefy) who knows how to write for groups of characters and gives all the heroes a chance to shine, even the non powered ones. He makes it believable as to why people who don't like each other would team up. He would be my choice for writing a B7 re-launch.
