The Avenger's Movie Review

Before you begin reading this, I want to let you know that I loved 
this movie. I didn't expect to enjoy it, but I did, especially in 3D.
The following is a guest post review from Dadda monkey:
I had the honor of watching The Avenger's recently in IMAX 3D.  I
have to say it was an outstanding movie.  The movie was obviously 
designed with 3D in mind, so I would suggest seeing it in this 
format if possible, but I'm sure it will be just as awesome in 2D.
     In my opinion Joss Whedon (Director/Screen Writer) has come
a long way.  This wasn't a teen script meant to capture the 
imagination of all those Buffy fans out there, it was a great piece of 
work that even Stan Lee would be proud of.  There was a lot of 
action in the movie, but something I didn't expect was the amount
 of humor. 
Robert Downey Jr. did an excellent job as Tony Stark, yet again.  I 
was laughing throughout a good portion of the movie, and to my 
surprise, so was my wife.  She wasn't a fan of any marvel super 
heroes and I'm not sure if she's ever laid a finger on a comic book, 
but she genuinely really liked the movie as well.  There were 
several times I looked over and noticed her laughing or sitting on
the edge of the seat.
    In all, the movie was excellent and I would recommend it to 
anyone as a great movie to watch, even if you don't like Comic

Kindle Fire

Dadda monkey gave me a Nook for Mother's Day last year and I really enjoyed reading it, but it's extremely limited in other areas. So when friends raved about their Kindle Fires, I kind of wanted to try one, but felt it was unjustified since I already had an e-reader. However, they'd talk about watching movies on it among other things that I just couldn't do with mine. So when the price on a refurbished Kindle Fire dropped, we took a chance and bought one. It's fantastic! I haven't watched a whole movie, but the kids have watched cartoon episodes and the screen is great. I've already read about 4 books on it and buying books is so much easier (and most times cheaper) than it was on my Nook. Anyways, for today only, they've dropped the price on a refurbished Kindle Fire; and it also comes with a 1 year warranty. I recommend you hurry and get one for yourself before they sell out. We picked one up for Dadda monkey today so he could have his own.
