I'm cosigning what arutha1000 except for the part where the Avengers riff sucked ass.  I actually thought that riff was AWESOME.

So consider this a ... 65% cosign on what he said.  No, wait, I also think that it's very likely we'll eventually get a Dark Knight Rises riff.  That seems to be in the cards.  So really this is just a ... 58% consign.  No, that seems low, let's say 62%.  Yeah ... that works.

But the avengers was completely mediocre.

Well, that's certainly your opinion and you're entitled to it but the Avengers had incredible box-office performances, good reviews and pretty widely satisfied fans of the MCU.   It was hard movie to riff because there's little in it TOO riff.  There's little bad or dull about it.  Compare it to Twilight with the bland acting, the over-the-top acting and the long pauses not to mention the stupid decision making by the characters and just the overall blandness of the cast.  There's a lot to go on in there.

The most they has to riff on with The Avengers was, what, RDJ's quips? Loki's overacting? Thor being a "dumb hunky blonde" stereotype?  The movie doesn't offer much material to pounce on.

Yeah, the riffs about him needed to back up to see things better were well placed.  And how specific the arrow attachments were.  And, well, just about all the Hawkeye riffs were pretty darn good.

That'd be a good quip if there'd been more than 3-4 BB riffs in the past half fucking year. Ya'll mofos don't have to agree that there should be more BB riffs but you can't act like there's been a ton of them lately.
