not so long ago that I saw and reviewed Avengers: Age of Ultron on here. My opinion hasn't really changed on watching it on DVD. But the reason I DID want to watch it was in context with Batman v Superman, because that picture's defenders often tell me that Age of Ultron was just as "bloated", and nobody bitches and moans about THAT movie. First of all, they do complain about the bloat in Age of Ultron, I believe I did myself if you read my original review. Second, and after watching AoU again it's very clear to me, you really have no business comparing the two movies' bloats as if they were equivalent. For one thing, while I would do away with the visions (hey, in BvS too!), what some consider bloating, i.e. the party scene, the farmhouse, are the best parts of the film for me. Because at this point, I'm invested in these characters and their personal moments are more important to me than the action beats. I can't say that about the deep end of the pool that is BvS. And speaking of action beats, AoU is actually well balanced, with a natural rhythm of action and non-action scenes alternating, while BvS has no flow to it, setting things up for what seems like forever, then exhausting its audience in the last act with non-stop action. So while AoU is far from the best Marvel film (I again lay a lot of that at Ultron's feet, I think he would have been a lot more terrifying if he hadn't had Tony Stark's humor programming), in no way is it in the same class as DC's most recent. Sorry to turn this into a backdoor review of BvS, but that was the context in which I watched it. The DVD has a featurette about the various locations used in the film.
Somehow, all these entries share a theme, can you guess what it is?
