    A very distinct sound. Fitting I think.

    Want to make sure, but did your theaters play the Don't Spoil the Endgame video before the movie?

    I don't think it did. It went from the last preview to the very beginning with
    Hawkeye teaching his daughter how to shoot the bow and arrow.

    Much, much better than I thought. Insane, actually.

    Never cried that much at a movie before. Damn.

    Not sure what to say exactly. Gotta let it set in.

    Unless they do universe shattering events like Secret Wars, probably not. And it’d take another 10 years to build up to that anyway. So for all intents and purposes, we won’t be seeing an epic like this for a long long time. If there is ANY movie to beat stupid ass Avatar (though it was nice at the time), it HAS to be this one. I’m seeing it with my dad on Tuesday and then in May to get my second IMAX poster, and then hopefully a fourth time in Dolby. I hope it crosses $3B, I’m doing my part. Whatever it takes

    Very poetic, definitely intentional. Definitely sad :/

    Saw the movie and...OOF. Extremely mixed feelings about this one.


    First hour was slow and boring as hell. Good character moments, but it just felt like scenes just kinda... happening with no natural flow. Also many strange music choices and out-of-place humour.


    Second hour kept jumping from scene to scene, making things unecessarily hard to follow. I'd rather they just do one scene at a time. Also, I'm very certain there are many logic holes that probably will not hold up if one were to really sit down and think about it.


    Third hour things FINALLY get great....even if it was a huge clusterfuck of a fight, it was filled with many memorable scenes and was overall a satisfying payoff.


    Also, very mixed feelings on some of the characters' endings. And there are characters who i really wanted to see that are barely in the movie.


    Idk, i know i liked the movie as a fan of the franchise, but i cant help but feel like this was 3 completely different movies in one. Still many, many good individual scenes, enough for me to give it a positive review, but the whole is less than the sum of its parts.


    Def need to rewatch. I'll leave it at 4 stars for now. Nowhere near the 5-star masterpiece I've been reading about IMO, but i might change my mind.

    It'll have controversy, unfortunately.

    Some people (if you consider their kind people) will bitch about Captain Marvel getting some good shots in and that brief scene of female heroes protecting Spiderman. Anything that involves women making a difference is "PC" and "SJW" to the "incel" types and far-right extremists

    I'm not.
    I myself think the film was somewhere between being 'just ok' to 'it was...good'.

    Certainly not 'great' by any stretch of the imagination. At least to me.

    I would have also preferred bucky. I love the black and metallic suit. But the scene was still very touching. I'm still so flashed how awesome the movie was.

    Yeah about
    Thor’s antics...took me out of the loop of the movie...I couldn’t take him seriously as he behaved like a buffoon when the stakes were high.

    I actually got bored with his antics...

    As for the Hulk...his role in the MCU is getting downplayed with each passing movie. Maybe it’s understandable as Universal owns the movie rights for mean green? I don’t know but the Hulk feels like a green teddy bear...and not in a good way.

    Yeah, that how I more or less feel. The first hour (?) to the final battle. IMO for some to compare it with TLJ is crazy but I won’t go out on a limb and say it’s a masterpiece.

    I would need to watch it a couple of times before deciding where it stands.

    I'm aware this will mark me as a movie goer and Johnny-come-lately to Captain America, but if I'm honest I don't think MCU!Bucky would even want to do it. He's a man out of time, like Steve, but he's had nearly no time to acclimate with the same sort of support structure and goal orientated life that Steve did. He's tired, he's done his time in country and suffered. I think he just wants to back to Wakanda and raise goats. Or maybe back to Brooklyn. Sam Wilson on the other hand, is young both in heart, mind and body. He still has his drive, he has experience. He will be a good Captain America. Don't get me wrong, I am sad as shit to see Chris Evans go, because his Captain America is sitting pretty next to Christopher Reeve's Superman. Standard bearers for the character within the genre and medium

    Yeah, story wise it makes more sense. I just like the other look better. But maybe they give him a suit that combines both elements. They usually change things a bit for mcu anyway. Which is good, otherwise I would just watch rehashed stuff I've already read.

    I really would've like to see Cap return all those stones back. Especially the Soul Stone since it involved the Red Skull. Plus, how would you even put that back? Just throw it?

    Before Cap went back to return the stones, Hulk said something about returning all the stones or else there will be alternate realities. I wonder how he handled the timeline where Stark and Lang failed and Loki took the cube and disappeared. Maybe that is one branch he couldn't cut off. 2012 Cap wasn't in the lobby, so maybe he prevented Loki from getting his hands on the cube.

    The scene where all the women showed up felt odd to me. Like I get it, weird how they all showed up at once, but Captain Marvel really didn't need any of their help.

    I wonder if the whole Black Widow movie was just to throw people.
