bp_2015_05_13It’s my annual tradition showing cherry blossoms in a comic produced slowly enough that the real life blossoms have been shed before the chapter actually ends -o-

Anyway…

I saw Age of Ultron over the weekend. After quite a bit of promotional build-up, I was pretty disappointed by how sloppy the plot was. Thor’s insight seemed pretty arbitrary. The Scarlet Witch’s reasoning for non-action early in the film was as baffling as her expectation of the result. (I’m trying hard not to create spoilers.)

Aside from the plot problems, it’s another Marvel Studios movie where the villain isn’t all that threatening. It’s a recurring weakness, and it’s really a shame. I expected Ultron to embody more menace. This could be the push I need to give up interest on Marvel and DC super hero properties.
