Some of you may not understand when I say that no matter the quality of the films that in my eyes the Avengers series is one of the greatest cinematic marvels (LOL) that I have ever experienced.
It’s not a sentiment everyone agrees with, and that’s fine. Casual work friend Matt certainly didn’t agree when he made his feelings known; that one superhero film is the same as another, and that what he considers art has been bled dry from modern film making.
Okay. Cool. Agree to disagree.
But what cannot be argued is that these films have struck a chord, and that the masses enjoy them for a reason. Part of what makes any work great is that it meets the audience halfway. It could be argued that what an audience brings to a film is equally important as what the film delivers in order to convey its message.
I can’t speak for everyone else. All I have is my own meandering experience, and my experience is that of a former fifteen year old child delving into comic books for the first time.
