    I saw Battleship yesterday and It was ok, but Avengers was totally a better adventure. Something felt missing from Battleship.

    I saw the Avengers and I totally enjoyed the movie. The movie has many moments where one can point to and say that was GOOD! But to me the most enjoyable part was when the hulk grabs a hold of Loki and does what every person would love to do to an enemy. I won’t spoil it for those who haven’t seen it yet. BUT IT MADE ME LAUGH!!!! The movie lives up to the hype.
