  • Hello Everyone!

  • Welcome back to TutorABC's MovieNotes!

  • I'm Alan,

  • and today we're going to be introducing another exciting movie called

  • The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

  • 它中文名字叫《復仇者聯盟2:奧創紀元》

  • So let's take a look at the trailer,

  • and we'll talk about some of the things in it.

  • All set up, boss.

  • Actually, he's the boss.

  • I just pay for everything,

  • and design everything,

  • and make everyone look cooler.

  • Avengers, how can you possibly stop me?

  • Show him what we've got.

  • Time to work for a living.

  • It just slipped.

  • Hey, big guy.

  • It's all in the swing.

  • If you step out that door,

  • you're an Avenger.

  • You didn't see that coming?

  • All right. It's time for some fun.

  • So in an action movie like this,

  • there aren't a lot of confusing or difficult words,

  • but there's a lot of little things, uh, that we can talk about.

  • So the first one,

  • someone says, at the very beginning,

  • "We're all set up"

  • That's three separate words: 'all set up.'

  • Now you might understand what that means.

  • It just means 'We're all ready.

  • We've prepared everything, and we're ready to go.'

  • So the next phrase that might be a little bit confusing is

  • "let's show 'em what we've got."

  • What does that mean?

  • Maybe if you're playing at a basketball game

  • or some kind of competition,

  • and you're going to

  • show someone what you've got,

  • it means you're gonna show them how good you are,

  • or what kind of skill you have,

  • but here, uh, it's like they're in war,

  • so they're going to show off their abilities,

  • they're ready to fight.

  • The next thing:

  • two very tiny little words,

  • he says "it slipped."

  • What does that mean?

  • If you say that,

  • 'it slipped,'

  • It means that you dropped it.

  • If you've dropped your phone before,

  • maybe then you know you take it out of your pocket,

  • and you say 'it slipped'.

  • It means it slipped out of your hand,

  • so you'll hear this a lot.

  • So the next one is

  • actually one that we might also use in sports.

  • One of the characters has a hammer,

  • and he does this action.

  • What is that?

  • In English, we call that 'a swing

  • So for golf, your golf swing

  • or your tennis swing,

  • anything with a racquet or a club,

  • maybe baseball also,

  • we call that a swing,

  • so it's a verb and a noun,

  • so keep that in mind as well.

  • So the next thing we hear someone say is

  • 'to see that coming.'

  • You said

  • "I didn't see that coming,"

  • what does that mean?

  • Well, if you didn't see something coming,

  • maybe like a bus or a person

  • it means you didn't know that it was coming towards you,

  • but you can also say this,

  • 'I didn't see that coming,'

  • to mean 'I didn't expect it'

  • or 'I didn't think that that would happen.'

  • So it can be a literal thing,

  • or it can also be maybe something that's kind of figurative,

  • so 'I didn't think that that would happen.'

  • So we can see all of these phrases in the movie 'The Avengers'.

  • I hope you enjoy it.

  • Have a look at it

  • and we'll see you next time at TutorABC's MovieNotes.
