The Avengers

If you like comic book movies, go see it, because it is pretty much everything a comic book movie tries to be. Joss Whedon really knocked this one out of the park. I hadn't realized how long it was going to be -- it's nearly two and a half hours -- but I hardly noticed. It keeps moving, the funny scenes are genuinely funny, and while a comic book can't completely avoid cheesiness, there isn't any part of the movie that is embarrassingly cheesy, and that is an accomplishment in itself.
