My mom wanted to see "Avengers: Age Of Ultron" for mother's day (yeah, seriously) and it wound up being kind of fitting because there was a ton of subtext about motherhood, having children, etc.  I'd heard some complaining from some people about the fact that Black Widow had been sterilized during her training and that this cheapened her character because "she can't do the one thing a woman CAN do" but, you know, it fit the movie real well.  I don't want to go into more detail until we've all seen the flick and can talk about it openly, though.

One thing that was bugging me throughout the movie was just HOW much CGI was in the movie.  Even scenes where they're all walking around Avengers tower talking, it's several shots digitally stitched together with extended backgrounds and whatnot... it makes the early flicks where Iron Man is just building cr*p in his garage or Thor chillin' in New Mexico seem insanely quaint.  I think I might have been hyperaware of this, though, because right before we left I had been looking at shots from Ghost In The Shell, which was an insanely visual movie that showed off without really feeling like it was showing off.

One thing I was actually surprised by was how sarcastic and human Ultron is.  I knew that "James Spader is a robot" but the character literally WAS "James Spader is a robot."  I was not expecting that slight difference.  But it definitely made him stand out more.
