Uh, wow.



George Michael weighed his options. Maeby had chastised him for not taking risks, and what would be a bigger risk than perpetuating a lie about software just to ignite the passions of a woman? Of course it would be a lie, and since Maeby wouldn't know it was a lie, he wouldn't appear to be taking a risk. Perhaps the bigger risk was to tell his father he was lying, that he came up with it because he wanted his father to leave so he could enjoy what remained of his senior year. After all, he wondered, wouldn't that be the course of action taken by an overtly sexual man, a man who owns a pair of matador pants? He had not responded now for 41 seconds according to his unfailing internal clock, and it was time to come clean.

Enormous and exhausting. I saw it today in case I had to prepare DolphDrew Jericho Tracker before he sees it tomorrow, and I'm glad I did. We're gonna have a lot to talk about on the drive home.

But I got something I have wished for in a Marvel movie since 2011.

At one point I said it was the greatest movie ever in the theater. I don't think I'm wrong.

I haven't seen Citizen Kane in a while, but I don't think Kane had any of the infinity stones in his Xanadu warehouse

This was not a happy movie.

I guess I kinda knew that going in, but ....damn.

It works as a piece of the puzzle, but as a standalone film it's not something I'm sure I'd rush to see again.

As a stand-alone film, it is pretty much hot garbage.

As a spectacle of cinema that encompasses ten years of world-building, holy shitballs!!!

When Bucky is the first one walking out of the woods and says Steve up until Parker's I'm Sorry to Stark, that whole sequence was just jaw dropping. The lights came on at the end of the movie and it was dead quiet. I legitimately didn't know if there was going to be a post-credits scene, but of course there was, and it was probably done the only way it could have been.

I like that this sets up the original six Avengers (w/ Rocket!) vs Thanos. I also like that Thanos got everyone on Titan except Stark, who he promised to protect.

And Stark... this was the moment he had been dreading since Avengers 1, and it came with all the force and terror that he anticipated, and as much as he tried to prepare everyone, they weren't ready. They couldn't be ready. Loki played the "we have a Hulk" card (which, based on how tore up the Asgard ship was at the time, it seems he waited a bit too long to play), and they still weren't ready.

I liked that Heimdall explained how Banner gets to Earth. (I look forward to Thor 4 starting with a flashback to Korg and Valkyrie conveniently running out for groceries in Grandmaster's Yacht just before Thanos shows up. They can meet up with Sif.) Cap's heroic entrance. Quill struggling to pull the trigger and ultimately pulling it too late. Wanda pulling the trigger on time and it ultimately not mattering. (Impressive that she did the one thing thought impossible - something made from the stones can destroy the stones...)

So of course with all the new avengers signed on for so many movies seemingly gone, we know they have to come back. Which means that the ending will be undone. They should have held off showing T'Challa, because after BP's massive success there is no way he's not coming back, but still. Bucky got me. I didn't realize he had been such a favorite of mine but when he went, I felt it. After that it was just more "not him/her too!"

This was not Avengers 3. This was not really an Avengers movie. It should have been called Thanos: Infinity War or something. Because the next one is going to have serious consequences as the old school Avengers pay them to bring everyone they lost back.

A light-hearted Ant-Man movie is going to feel weird after this, but I look forward to Captain Marvel setting the table for what is to come.

Wow.

It's like I'm always saying, this post by lotjx is 100% correct. This is also probably the most charismatic movie of all-time.

Also maybe original movie Avengers + ersatz original shoot Avengers Ant-Man and Wasp?

Yeah, BP and Spider-Man disintegrating were almost a huge relief for that reason. It was too terrible. Like, Gamora is coming back from the Soul Stone for sure and I even kind of think White Vision is getting rebuilt by Shuri, because they went out of their way to say how worth saving he was. But even if we know all the stakes are getting fixed, Spider-Man going out was still the worst thing that's ever happened to me at the cinema. None of the deeply shook kids in the audience seemed to grasp that they had sequel immortality either. Good gravy that was ballsy. I've never been at one of those post-credit stickarounds where literally no one left. Everyone just sat there sad waiting for some good news.

Ever since the Ragnarok cliffhanger I've been so sad thinking there's no way they could slaughter the whole ship because it would undercut all the stakes of that movie if they went through all that for nothing. But of course they never had a chance, and the PTSD Thor arc has the most dramatic weight of the whole movie. Maybe Loki is right and the sun will shine on them again.

Saw it at midnight first chance possible along with a sold out theater.
People cheered when their favorites appeared.
Cap and his crew got a HUGE pop. Probably helped by the already classic Avengers theme

And then shit hit the fan. And destroyed the fan. And everyone else. Holy FUck. It was beautiful and brutal.
It was everything I dreaded and wanted.

Ofcourse it will be reversed (but I hope they can only reverse those that drifted away. But I didn't expect them to go there.

Kudos by the way for Dr. Strange (doing the Reed Richards thing and exploring all futures first) for giving up the stone after all. He said he'd protect it with everyone's life.
But then he learned that the only way for them to WIN (not stop Thanos from getting the stones) was for him to sacrifice it and himself.

Fuck this was good. Saw it twice now, will go see a third time.

I think Strange is up to something, and this turn of events might be the beginning of the one way he saw out of 14 million to ultimately beat Thanos. What makes him truly a hero is the possibility he knew he was the half of the universe that would die first.

On a second viewing, Strange's comments to Tony about "endgame" and "this is the only way" seem loaded. Whatever rules might apply to the stones and reality is exactly what he seeks to outsmart just to prove he can.

My impression was that Dr. Strange’s one scenario involved Tony Stark in some way, so he knew that saving his life (and making sure Thanos spared it) was literally the only important objective for him. Even at the expense of him getting the time stone.

Makes sense, since I think Iron Man’s done after the last movie, and he’ll probably have to do a heroic sacrifice. Maybe Cap, too, which would be poetic if they went out together.


Awesome payoff to everything. Thanos delivered.

Yeah, serves me right for starting a thread, right? Got me again. A 10 episode season does make more sense...as much as things can make sense these days...so I think they're really done now. (Last week's double would be eps 8 AND 9)
