Guest post: Aurora Martinez on The Avengers

This week's guest blogger from the Tasha Turner Virtual Blog Tour is Aurora Matinez.  For her "normal" blog post introducing us to her blog, she's decided to review a top movie Take it away, Aurora!

I recently went to see the movie, Avengers. It is the story of several, flawed heroes thrown together to fight against the ultimate super villian.  The star star studded cast was brilliant with:

  • Chris Evans as Steve Rogers (Captain America), the super soldier
  • Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark (Iron Man) the bright, selfish, philanthropist in an awesome suit
  • Chris Hemsworth as Thor, demi-god, lightning master and ruler of Asgard
  • Jeremy Renner as Clinton Barton (Hawkeye), Assassin who's deadly with a bow
  • Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanov (Black Widow), Assassin
  • Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner (The Hulk), the genius and scientist
  • Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Thor's brother, nemesis and leader of the invading alien armies
  • Clark Gregg as the dorky, Agent Coulson
  • and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, the one-eyed leader of the Avengers
  • with Joss Whedon directing.
 I absolutely had to name the entire group because without each actor shining in their prospective roles and the direction of Joss Whedon, this movie could have been a cheesy flop. However, with this group of people the movie was riveting, action-packed and full of character growth and the surpise humor of witty lines. I recommend this for everyone who loves action or sci-fi. I have never even opened any of Stan Lee's comics that contain these characters, yet I have become a huge fan of them all and will be seeking out the comics.

As for the digital affects, they were completely flawless and could not be determined from the actual sets and actors. This movie receives the highest marks that I can give... 5 Nerds.

About the blogger:

I have always been a writer. When I first learned to write in Kindergarten, I wrote about pigs who "groo" wings and became "butterfys." I knew way back then that I would have a love affair with writing. I have no great dreams or illusions of becoming a best selling author but I do hope that my stories connect with people of all ages, genders and races. All it takes is a good story to unite people who wouldn't normally be on the same side.
