Saw "The Avengers" on DVD

The Superhero team movie called "The Avengers" came out on DVD, so we rented it Friday night. I (Rob) am a huge superhero and comic book fan, although my favorite heroes are in the DC Comics line: Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Flash, Wonder Woman... 
 The Avengers features Nick Fury,  Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America (a favorite of mine), Hawkeye and Black Widow.  The story is about how Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D. (a gov't organization to protect the country) brings together a team of super humans to form The Avengers to help save the Earth from the norse God gone mad - Loki and his army.
   As much as I loved seeing all of the heroes together, I have to give this movie a "B." The infighting between heroes was overdone, but the origins were hinted at, and done well. The costumes were great, although why Chris Evans (Capt. America) dyed his hair is beyond me (it made him look odd for this movie for some reason). We both enjoyed the movie, though. Our favorite part was the very physical confrontation where the Hulk slammed Loki back and forth on the ground. We laughed out loud. :)
 

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
