Serious Mitt Romney will not insult American ears with scatological references to his opponent other than to seriously question the BS defecated by BO on the public discussion of serious issues.
If Mitt Romney does mention horses and bayonets we are sure it will be in the context of the military geopolitical posture of the American military and how to finance that military.
If Mitt Romney utters language in regards to “binders of women” it will be a serious discussion of the need to provide economic opportunity for women as he did when he was governor of blue state Massachusetts with it’s overwhelming opposition party culture and massive population of opposition party legislators.
Certainly Mitt Romney will be serious in his appeal for votes. Not for Mitt Romney double-entendres. Mitt Romney will not make an insulting appeal for votes asking women to lose their political virginity to him.
So there's politics and now onto movies.
"The Avengers" is an awful film. Now that it out on DVD, hopefully people can grasp just how bad.
Tits and Tease is what it should have been called.
Scarlett Johansson was the worst part about the film. I'll save her for last. The best part about the film was Mark Ruffalo who played Bruce Banner (The Hulk). He provided genuine laughs and also some complexity and humanity. He can hold his head high.
I'm not a Robert Downey Jr. fan and didn't care for him in the Iron Man films. But, to give him credit, he's got a better performance here. He seems more comfortable and less hyper. I actually enjoyed him in this film.
So for Mark Ruffalo and Robert Downey Jr., I can recommend it.
Jeremy Renner tried to give a performance in a role that never got written (Hawkeye) and Chris Hemsworth is only convincing as Thor if Natalie Portman is in the film apparently. (She's not in "The Avengers.") Chris Evans? I don't think they'll be able to update Captain America in a solo film. He worked in the WWII film. In this film, he seems hopelessly ridiculous.
The first part of the film is wasted on a set-up that doesn't pay off.
The rest of the film?
Flat out boring.
You can see it once and probably enjoy it. But that's it. It is a vapid and empty film.
It promises to deliver and never does.
Then there's the awful Scarlett Johansson. How many drugs has she done?
She looks so much older than 27. She looks like she's in her forties.
And she's forever showing her tits. Scenes are filmed just to show her tits.
She places the Black Widow. She's a joke. She's shooting pistols at invading aliens. What the hell is that?
So are the many police officers in the background.
There's no reason for her in this film except that they wanted to show some tits.
They could have had Scarlet Witch or any other female member of The Avengers with real powers.
Instead, they have a bad character -- if you're taking on aliens and super bad guys -- played by a really bad actress.
Jessica Alba played Sue Storm in "The Fantastic Four" and "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer." She was reduced to nothing by the screenwriters. And she was also used for her looks.
But Jessica Alba made Sue human and believable.
Scarlett Johansson is just a sad joke. She's given one lousy performance after another since her one great bit of acting in "Lost In Translation."
This is a really bad movie. And while Jessica Alba probably had to settle for window dressing, Johansson is a big enough name that she can demand better. Not only did she not do that but she also was unable to do a better job in the role than Jessica Alba could.
I don't think Jessica Alba is a bad actress but I do think it's very telling that she's a better actress than Scarlett Johansson.
Going out with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
