Went to the midnight showing of The Avengers. I got maybe four hours of sleep as a result and I feel kind of hung over, but I enjoyed the movie a lot. It was a lot of fun and I think they did a really good job of giving all the principal characters a chance to shine in things that they respectively do best.

I'm a bit disappointed in how much Black Widow's characterization revolved around Hawkeye, but I appreciate that they never made the relationship overtly romantic, and I did like some of the things she got to do during the film. I also thought Mark Ruffalo did surprisingly well as Bruce Banner - who knew?

Very, very quotable movie. Lots of snark from everyone, as can only be expected when Joss Whedon's involved.

Cut for one brief but high-impact spoiler. )
