In case you haven't been watching TV, reading the papers, magazines or my blog, or you have just been away on Mars, this is the opening weekend of Marvels The Avengers!!!
Last Saturday, I got the pleasure of interviewing Tom Hiddleston (Loki) and Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill) It was a huge deal for me. How often to you ever get to sit in a room with celebrities??
We interviewed them at the beautiful Trump Soho Hotel. Check out the views from the suites we were in.
I was very impressed with these views, but I was even more impressed with this one!!
Yes you see it correctly. That is Mr. Robert Downey Jr!!!! He was staying at the hotel. I saw him come in when we first arrived, and then as we were leaving, he was too!! He was so close, I could have reached out and touched him!! Of course I wouldn't. I am a professional!!! (LOL)
Oh, and we did have an interesting first. We got the pleasure of seeing a topless photographer. I have to admit, she must have gotten some pretty good shots. Who wouldn't be looking. All though everyone who did had a "What the?" face!!!
Then we were off to the red carpet.
We were brought inside, and got to see some of the celebrities arrive. I love these pictures below. They not only show the actor celebrities, but they show our everyday hero's!! The cast of the movie actually dedicated it to all of the responders of 9/11. I thought that made the movie extra special.
Now what did I think of the movie?? I will sum it up in two words.... IT ROCKED!!!!
I love all the super hero movies, but this one topped them all!!! There was action and a ton of humor. I spent most of my time watching the movie laughing!!!
The characters all worked so well together (even when in the movie they weren't supposed to be!!)
I especially liked what they did with the Hulk. Usually when he is the big green monster, he doesn't have a lot of control. In this movie, he does much better. He actually made a couple of jokes!!!
Now there was one thing in the movie that really ticked me off. I don't want to spoil anything, (I know I am annoying) but this one scene was not needed, and actually made me yell "NO!!" when it happened. Because I am taking my family tomorrow to see the movie, and I know some of you haven't had a chance to see it yet, I am not going to ruin it for you, but I hope you see what scene I am talking about, and are just as angry as I am.
Other then that one scene, I absolutely loved the movie, and I highly recommend it (and I am not just saying that!!)
Don't forget, the movie opened today. I hope you all get a chance to see it, and please let me know what you think!!!
