I sat for three hours watching the final Avengers installment last night. It is the geeky thing my daughter and I do together. The hype is correct. If you have to use the bathroom or refill your snacks, go while Hulk is eating lunch or when the New Jersey card flashes. You’re welcome.
In celebration of what I sincerely think has been a wonderful franchise, my daughter and I have been passing memes, rumors, trailers, and fan-made videos back and forth for a few months. Yes, we are that geeky. And I will even admit, one made me tear up. I am emotionally invested in this thing. Get over it. I went to the film with no make-up to avoid raccoon eyes. It was a wise choice.
One of the best things I have discovered trading content back and forth with my daughter is Ryan George’s Pitch Meetings. He creates videos for Screen Rant and they make me laugh out loud. The great part is I am laughing at myself for loving the whole Avengers franchise as much as I do while fully embracing some of the more outrageous parts of it.
plays dual roles in what he calls “Pitch” videos. He plays the
screenwriter and the studio executive. In their back and forth, they discuss
the plot and the characters. If you don’t like spoilers, don’t watch his video
until you have seen the movie.
In the hilarious back and forth, Ryan points out the absurdity, the plot holes and the inconsistencies from the movie he is discussing. He ruthlessly mocks several franchises in this format such as Star Wars and DC, as well as stand-alone films. His pitch video for The Last Jedi is a scream. Especially if you hated it as much as I did.
And because everything is super-easy, barely an inconvenience, Ryan has kindly compiled all the pitch meetings for the Avengers series into one continuous video. It is a time saver if you need to be reminded of key storylines, characters or significant events before seeing the movie.
It is also laugh-out-loud funny if you are a lover of the franchise but still capable of a little self-deprecation. So, if you are not going to be able to see the movie for a few days (LOSER), this might just keep you entertained in the meantime. If you love the movies and poking a bit of fun at them, Ryan’s a worthwhile follow.
I’ll just be over here waiting for the Endgame Pitch Meeting to post……
