Avengers Redux, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Try the Theater

It may sound odd, but I haven’t been to a theater in about four years. The last movie I remember seeing was Wall*E, back when Jena was too young to really enjoy or remember it, shortly afterwards we ran into some major money troubles and have only recently gotten to the point where I think we’ve just about fully recovered. I was originally going to title this blog “How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Theater” so that should give you a little preview of how things went. We went down to the local AMC twelve screen, the only theater in our relatively small midwest town outside of a single screen theater that shows mostly independent movies so we could watch the Avengers.

FTMN Poll: Post-Credits Scenes

Post-Credits scenes, sometimes they’re cool, sometimes they’re ok, and sometimes they’re not there at all. How do you feel about them? Do you always sit through the credits regardless, or do you find out beforehand if you need to sit through them? If you stay and there’s no scene, do you feel cheated? If you leave and find out there was an awesome end scene, does it annoy you? And do you have a favorite one that you’ve seen?

I know the Avengers had not just one, but two post-credits scenes. There’s one right after a few of the main credits, and there’s yet another one after all of the credits. Do you think it’s overkill? Personally I enjoyed staying until the end, at least until I had a daughter. I haven’t tried staying to the end since then but I imagine it will be a struggle. And of course, there’s always home video where you can just skip past all the credits and cut straight to the bonus scene. Share your opinion, vote, leave a comment, tell me what you think. Tomorrow I’ll have my review of more cheesiness with Howard the Duck and on Wednesday I’ll share the story of what happened when I went to the theater for the first time in about four years. Until next time, this has been Bubbawheat for Flights, Tights, and Movie Nights.
