There is something awesome about a great voice. Some people are known for it: Barry White, Isaac Hayes, James Earl Jones. I have to admit that Darth Vader is one of the greatest movie villains of all time, not because of how he looks, but because of how he sounds. And in my opinion, you can add a couple great voices to that list.
Ever since Iron Man hit theaters I have had a thing for JARVIS. That calm demeanor just always kind of got me. And with Avengers: Age of Ultron, you can add James Spader to that list. He is the voice of…wait for it…Ultron, and he is superb. Now don’t get me wrong, I love me some Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. and Jeremy Renner, but like many movies, the bad guy gets some great lines, and Ultron is no exception. In case you are not a complete Marvel Fanboy like the hubby or Fangirl like yours truly, Ultron is a Psychopathic homicidal robot that wants to wipe out mankind. Created by Tony Stark as a defense against the Unknown dangers in the universe, he very quickly goes off the deep end and starts gunning for the Avengers, and everyone else on Earth. But he does it in such a calm logical fashion, that it seems even crazier than if he was cackling like some mad lunatic.
Once again Marvel has delivered with a fun, sometimes serious, sometimes funny, action packed movie. I can’t wait to go see it again.
