As the doldrums (doldrums!) of August push ever onward, ever forward -- what are we in, the 70th day of this month now? -- it becomes more and more of a struggle to find something interesting to say about the movies. "Why don't you write something about The Avengers 2?," someone suggested. Trouble is, we don't know much about The Avengers 2, apart from who's directing it and when it's coming out. So! Since I'm supposed to write about The Avengers 2 -- even though I have nothing to say about The Avengers 2 -- maybe this is a good time to check in with our old friend, Chitauri Warrior.
This morning, I was given orders to "write something about The Avengers." Here's the problem: I have nothing left to say about The Avengers because everything that could possibly be said about The Avengers has been said. Most people like The Avengers. Some people didn't like The Avengers. Alas, that's the way our planet works.
