However, I think The Avengers did a great job of pulling all the characters together and was very happy with the final product.
Are you a comic reader? While two intelligent people can have completely different opinions, I figure that a comic fan might love or hate something based more on the consistency to the comic books.

Yes I liked it, definitely the best Punisher movie but that's not saying a whole lot. Not a kid's movie though at all.

The real trick with the Avengers was hiring Joss Whedon to write and direct it.

Not really, I mean, I've read comic books and when I was much younger I collected certain ones. I wouldn't say I was any kind of comic book fan or anything.

Sometimes I think it's just a matter of not expecting much. Particularly with the Thor movie, I had heard such terrible reviews. When I decided to watch it on Netflix one day I came away thinking, "Yeah, that was okay!"

Pre-conception.

Not discussed often among us humans, but it is HUGE!!!!

Pre-conceptions can easily make or break an experience. If I feel that a car ride is going to be LONG as eff, it usually gets me there before I know it.

Then going back, I say "That ride wasn't so bad!!!!" and it takes for EVER.

I agree. When I go in expecting the worst, I'm often pleasantly surprised. When I go in expecting greatness, I am too often disappointed. Perhaps this is telling me that most things are swimming somewhere in the middle of a crowded pool of mediocrity.

I did not read those comics, but as a Whedon fan I was let down.

I actually thought that both ironman and Thor and captain America were good films. The Hulk sucked twice. The avengers was awesome. . .
They are of course adaptations of comic books. I think a lot of people miss this and think less of the films because they are too comic bookish.
