One thought to “Episode 259: ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ ‘Adult Beginners,’ our 2015 Summer Box Office Challenge draft”
AOU did move forward the MCU’s overall story with the infinity gauntlet a little. Aside from that it had a retarded love story and some fun action.
And I agree, doesn’t look like it has much rewatchability. The first Iron Man, second Captain America and Guardians of the Galaxy have the most rewatchability in my opinion. Avengers was the most fun the first time but even that one loses a lot of luster by the third viewing.
