Movie Review: THE AVENGERS

"Superheroes. Get your superheroes."

In case you haven't watched your TV or listened to your radio or read any entertainment magazines recently, The Avengers have finally assembled--the Marvel Studios culmination of seven years and five previous movies, inevitably leading to this super-est of super hero franchises, The Traveling Wilburys of comic book movies. It's an oddly mixed bag of high concept spectacle and witty banter, where multiple stories collide like a disaster movie. (That's not to say that the movie itself is a disaster.)

Month in Review - April 2012

For me, April is always dominated by the ten days of the Florida Film Festival. I've written at some length about it already, so I won't expound anymore than to merely say it is a simultaneously exhilarating and exhausting week-and-a-half of movie watching. I watched some great movies, met a couple of very nice filmmakers, and experienced it for the first time as a somewhat legitimate member of the press.
