not a complete list tho

@hntrgurl13 !!! that song is actually really nice! i like it o: i can totally see it with stan and ford, ive got vague ideas from it, but nothing complete. ill add it to the list tho! maybe ill be able to think of something the more i listen to it. thanks!

okay, now that it’s out in the states, i can post what i didn’t like about aou:

  • black widow is terribly mischaracterised
  • the romantic subplot between natasha and bruce was really uncomfortable and unnecessary.  it comes out of the blue and takes up way too much screentime.  it’s really cringeworthy and awkward
  • the entire film was really rushed, and while the main plot was pretty good, it was still rushed.  it shouldn’tve been ‘age of ultron’ it was more like ‘ultron tries to fuck shit up and dies right after he’s made’
  • joss whedon just like.  really really wanted to make an ultron film.  so they rushed it.  it wasn’t the time for an ultron film imo.
  • like hank pym hasn’t even been introduced, ant-man hasn’t come out yet, so they made it so tony and bruce made ultron.  which they didn’t.  it was hank.  but in this movie, they made tony and bruce make him.  even tho in iron man 3 he gave up ‘tinkering’ and started to move past his fear and from hiding behind his inventions.
  • god it like retcons so many motivations in iron man 3 and the winter soldier.  scarlett johansson had the idea to wear the arrow necklace because even tho she’s a badass spy “she’s a woman” and “has relationships outside of her work”… the russos okayed it, feige must have okayed it… but then in aou they throw in lines every two seconds like “oh they’re just besties :)  best friends :)  bros :)  bffs :)”
  • and like tony, who has severe ptsd and anxiety, was all happy to play around with the glowstick of destiny?  the sceptre loki tried to use to brainwash him, and failed only because of the arc reactor that’s no longer in his chest now?  and he was completely fine and excited to tinker around with it?  and we’re expected to believe this?
  • clint has a family suddenly?  even though they’re really adorable it’s just like.  out of the blue.  and really hard to believe.
  • they introduce a beloved avenger just to kill him off and not have that much repercussion.  clint and wanda are just like aw i’m sad :( for a scene or two.  then it’s all good.  
  • and like he’s dead in the first movie he’s been in… they didn’t even give the audience a chance to properly fall in love with him.  it was like ‘i’m gonna kill someone off but it can’t one of these big moneymakers everyone’s already attached to.  bye quicksilver.’
  • baron von strucker was killed off like it was nothing.  like all that leadup and we just see some security footage of a dead body.
  • the soundtrack was 99% reprises from the first avengers film.  like, there’s a difference between having a main theme/song and entirely recycling a score.  the soundtracks to im, im2, and im3 are distinctly different… same for tfa and tws… thor and tdw… meanwhile they literally put exact songs from the first movie’s score in aou.  lazy.  callbacks and main cues = fantastic.  entirely recycled = no.
  • it just seemed so rushed and lackluster.  tbh the first ten or fifteen minutes were better than the “climax,” if you could call it that

like, it’s wasn’t the worst movie ever.  i liked seeing my fave characters together again.  i liked seeing them work together in the beginning of the movie, teasing each other.  i liked the lullaby.  it was cute.  i liked the party, sans the awkward bruce and nat interactions.  i LOVED rhodey <3!  loved the pepper and jane mentions, like “sorry marvel couldn’t afford paltrow and portman lol.  we love them anyway.”  i liked natasha’s witch induced flashbacks.  i liked clint actually getting to talk.  i adored vision.  i loved wanda and pietro.  i was so happy to see tws captain’s orders cutie working on the helicarrier.  i liked science bros.  tony got a lot of fantastic lines.  and omg “jarvis is my copilot” yes

but the movie just wasn’t good.  it wasn’t good enough for them to slap the marvel name on.  it was really lackluster and didn’t fit the franchise smoothly.  tbh whedon seems to be getting frustrated with the confinements of working in such an interconnected universe, and he’s really taking it out on the quality of his work.  it’s insulting.
