Singleton + Writer + Book Lover + Moviegoer = Screen Spinster

Welcome to the loneliest blog on the web. I have no words of wisdom to espouse. (why does espouse sound so much like spouse? Is that word trying to rub it into my spinster brain?) Anyway, I don't own a cat. Never will. I don't cook, nor do I sew or knit, but I do spin a yarn (tale) from time to time. I have no domestic talents, I am not a domestic engineer/goddess, nor do I want to be. I'll sometimes post my views on scripts, (mine & yours or theirs) movies, television shows and maybe theatre, along with my own musings usually in the style of a poem. So pull up a rocking chair, sit back as your cherry pie bakes and stay a while if you like.

Movie Review: The Avengers

I was one of the few people left on the planet who still hadn't seen The Avengers, not because I wasn't interested, but because I wanted to avoid the crowds as much as possible. But on a Thursday night at 5:20 I went (a crowd eventually showed up. Who'd a thought?) and I really liked the film.

It's a fun summer flick. For an ensemble film it really hits all the right moments with its characters. I felt I really got to know the individual avengers (without having to watch the other films) and that the screen was shared well by all of them.

If you like superhero films then go see it. If you like witty banter then go see the film. If you like well edited action sequences then go see the film. If you're a Joss Whedon fan (like I am) then go see this film.

P.S. Stick around for two scenes during the end credits.
