I loved the random beat downs as much as the epic one.
Love the movie. Hulk easily stole the show. Just about everything he did was geek out moment for me.

Help Save Ant-Man
In a WW II war movie, the battles are fought by real, terrified people and a soldier can be killed with a bullet. One bullet.
In The Avengers it's demi-gods, super-soldiers, hulking behemoths, and men in advanced mechanized battle armor fighting waves and waves of generic CGI alien hordes who look like they're firing pea shooters.
There's no jeopardy and you never feel like any of the heroes are in peril.
As someone on the boards already said (I'm paraphrasing): the constant CGI fest is like watching someone play a video game who won't hand over the controller to you.
I think the scope of battle and its aftermath were adequately conveyed.
"On working through writers block"
So I was standing in my garden at three in the morning with a glass of whisky, smoking furiously and swearing at the sky, reduced to waiting for the thunder bolt to hit when...
Did i bring up the bit where, just in the background, one of the big ship...snake things is flying by, and hulk is hanging off it's mouth punching it in the face?
I loved that so much.
Marvel definitely pulled it off and does deserve praise from their fans. But that doesn't mean the film is perfect and beyond critique. I think the climatic battle drags a bit.
To add to my nitpicks for nitpicks sake: I also think the film takes a while to get going, and doesn't explain Loki's motivations very well.
There's a couple more for you to put in your book.
I think Loki's motivation was explained a couple of times in the movie , he was meant to rule and he was supposed to be king. He couldn't have asgard so he settled for earth which is why he made the deal with "the other" so that he gets to subjugate the earth with an alien army and he will give them the cosmic cube or tessaract in return.
