Some quick opinions.
Avengers: Age of Ultron:I saw The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and although it was overall enjoyable, I found it to be weaker than the first one. I know I'll be hated by nerds everywhere for this, but I was never sold on Ultron as the villain. James Spader's performance was great, but the character had a very underwhelming buildup, and he kind of fell too far into the "machines > humans" cliche. One thing I loved about the first Avengers was that it reused a villain, meaning that it could just get to the Avengers without needing to introduce a new bad guy. I can't help but feel Avengers 2 would have benefitted if Ultron was at least mentioned in a past film. It also didn't flow as well as the first one. The original Avengers was two and a half hours, but it was enough fun throughout that you either didn't notice or didn't care. But Age of Ultron can feel slow at times. There's also just way too many characters, and some previously established character relationships feel randomly retconned.
Of course, this is only going by one viewing, and comparing it to a movie I've seen multiple times over the last three years. Maybe if I watch it again my opinion will grow, but for now I feel that it was a fun, action packed movie that falls flat when compared to its predecessor.
Yooka-Laylee:Although the announcement that the "spiritual successors" to Banjo and Kazooie would be the less inviting pairing of a chameleon and a bat, once I saw more of it I was sold. I'm a little embarrassed to admit this, but Yooka-Laylee is actually the first Kickstarter project I've backed (if the Toejam and Earl Kickstarter is still up I'll totally donate to that!). It looks like everything that Nuts & Bolts should have been. I was willing to pay as soon as I saw the footage, but once I learned that the score will be composed by both Grant Kirkhope and none other than David Wise (my favorite gaming composer) my money magically disappeared from my wallet and went straight to Kickstarter!
