The Avengers (2012) with spoilers, and new things on the internet

You know, I was going to write a whole post about the specifics of stuff I loved about The Avengers. You’ve already seen my spoiler-free gushing (assuming you have done your homework properly). I thought about the stuff I would say – the coolness of Black Widow’s “terror” scene with the Hulk; the coolness of Banner and Hulk; the scenes that went on just a little too long, like the argument on the helicarrier; Coulson’s awesome moment; differences between Whedon’s and Favreau’s directing… but mostly just recapping the greatest moments.

But then I thought about it some more. I want this one to be a 2-way conversation. For some reason most of you don’t comment here on the blog. I’ve found that you’re more likely to comment on Facebook. So I’m going where you are more comfortable for this. I’ve created a Facebook page for Caddickisms, and we’ve already started discussing the film in a couple of posts. Please… join in!

(When I get around to it, I’ll try to make the link between the Facebook page and this blog a bit more seamless.)

I recognize, though, that there may be some of you who don’t like Facebook, and want your spoilers. That, also, is cool. My suggestion is that you go visit Lee at his new blog. He has said much of what I love about the film, and also links to a great post about the relationship between Stark and Banner. Good stuff.

    I wonder if integrating Facebook comments into the blog might help facilitate that? I was sorely tempted to just use Facebook comments for the new blog myself but I like how clean the native comments are on the screen.

    I was thinking the same thing, on both counts. I’d kind of prefer not to mess with the uniformity of the comments. I may just put a widget in or something, unless there’s an option I haven’t considered yet.

    Yay, more places to add spoiler-filled praise for a well-deserving film. I hope my comments to Lee’s new blog pass the house rules ;)

    Personally I thought the rule that you had to add “Lee is awesome” in every third comment was a bit over the top, but hey, it’s his blog…

    Oh, that reminds me…

    “Jeff is awesome!”

    Sorry I forgot.
