Just came back from my first screening of Endgame, in 3D.

What an absolutely breathtaking movie that was. The theater was as taut as a bowstring the entire time, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many people cry in public at the same time.

The people who make the new Star Wars movies should have to sit down and watch this to study how to give characters a proper sendoff.

There are some very interesting choices in terms of plot and pacing and what could have been wall to wall fan service felt earned at every point.

I’m going to see it again tomorrow night and look forward to more people seeing it so I can discuss it.

I've read the spoilers for Endgame just to know what happens to the Guardians characters.
The MCU just ended up boring to me (and I would put most of the films of it I've watched below the new Star Wars films).

To be fair I haven't watched Infinity War, but I was pretty tired by then (I have watched all from Iron Man to Spider-Man Homecoming).
Only exception for me are the Guardians films. Love them so much.
It's just not for me I guess.

It's likely I end up watching these last films if friends make me watch them, if they impress me I'll say so.
Shinji: "Sooner or later I'll be betrayed... And they'll leave me. Still... I want to meet them again, because I believe my feelings at that time were real."
Ryuko: "I'm gonna knock ya on your asses!"
-Asuka: THINK IN GERMAN!!! -Shinji: Öh... Baumkuchen...
Hayashida: "As game developers, our work is special. All of us here can put smiles on very many people's faces with our work."
"In any case, it (Kill la Kill) is the greatest work of fiction ever written and should be taught in schools." -Squigsquasher

It was… three hours of empty fan pandering. If you’re all in on this universe it’s the greatest experience possible. If you think the universe is just fine or not good the film doesn’t invite you in.
I don’t have many positive things to say about this film or what comes next so I’ll just back out & let people enjoy this movie.

And yet we had to be apprised of your indifference.

Since you won’t be regaling us with any further detail, I went out and looked up the negative reviews. The movie is good, so they’re hard to find.

I’ll put all my comments behind a spoiler tag.

SPOILER: Show
https://www.filmfreakcentral.net/ffc/2019/04/avengers-endgame.html

This is my favorite review so far. I particularly love this part:

There's a moment in the midst of battle when it seems as if every single woman who has ever appeared in a Marvel film unites behind a contrived Powerpuff pose. It's desperate and forced, but there you have it, Marvel's very own "No Man's Land" sequence--or so they hope.

I just love it when a man tells how me how to enjoy female characters. I guess I’m not allowed to see myself in them because it’s “forced” according to a man.

Anyway, I knew I could count on Armand White to deliver the goods:

https://www.nationalreview.com/2019/04/ ... olescents/

Infantilization is the MCU game plan. A serious publication is obligated to point out similarity to the free-college, no-student-loans, socialized-medicine political promises that stoke immaturity. Also note how Endgame secularizes religious allegories. The end-times premise is hollow, just an excuse for the usual sci-fi, CGI destruction. Even Thor’s junked-up Norse myth and Black Panther’s purely cosmetic Afrocentricity join the trend of ignoring spiritual faith and trivializing national heritage.

You millennials and your fucking hope for a better tomorrow! In my day we ground ourselves down to accept that life sucks and this is the best we can do and we liked it!

“Striking a Powerpuff Girls pose,” does this person know about superheroes? Powerpuff Girls poses are literally half of their job. (Gangreen Gang poses if they’re a vigilante.)

What's the problem, exactly? He saw it, he's allowed to say what he thought and that it wasn't for him. He kept it to a brief comment and not a wall of text rant, too!

Seriously. Don't be one of those guys.

Armand White has to be one of the worst critics around. I know he's going to say something stupid and he still manages to surprise me. :lol:

As for the other review
SPOILER: Show
Isn't it funny how nobody cries contrivance when Cap, Thor and Tony just so happen to be the only 3 Avengers close enough to the surface to fight Thanos in the climax? And that Ant Man *just so happens* to dig the others out right in time for the big assembly? I wonder what the difference is...?

And then of course there's the inevitable "yeah but Wonder Woman!" No man's land worked so well because it's the first on-screen appearance of Diana as Wonder Woman (in this movie) and manages to perfectly encapsulate Wonder Woman's character while also being a neat action sequence. You're going to have trouble getting that to work for other characters because they are not Diana, who is a hopeful and inspirational figure. Well, except Cap and Superman, I suppose.

I saw people trying to make that same comparison with Captain Marvel, but they always seem to ignore that Carol and Diana have wildly differing personalities and different messaging to go along with that.

Also that Lady Avengers scene was absolutely a nod to A-Force and they better make that a movie now. :lol:
Someday I hope that we'll be reunited if that is what's destined to be. Perhaps we'll discover that elusive bible. And then we will finally be free!

I’ve read a bunch of Armand White’s reviews and I honestly can’t tell if they’re supposed to be satirical. They look like they should.

Regarding the plot of the movie, I do wish they'd had one more scene showing how
SPOILER: Show
2014 Thanos' ship got to the present when they didn't have any more Pym particles. I was left with the impression that Thanos had his people reverse engineer them and the temporal GPS since we saw Nebula give him the phial, but having a scene clarifying that would have been nice.

My assumption was that

SPOILER: Show
Thanos just reverse engineered the Pym-Stark quantum tunneling tech and Pym Particles and already had the “return” coordinates from Nebula’s wrist device. Nebula just hadn’t to open the door from her side.

I keep reading that he’s actually a talented actor. I’ve never seen a movie he’s in, though.

Also I once confused him for James Franco, which is deeply embarrassing.

I’m actually deeply relieved that it’s only Robert Patterson, because I initially read that as “Pat Robertson” plays The Batman, and that would have been genuinely unnerving. I don’t need Batman putzing around the manor muttering “Joker is gonna form a gay and lesbian occult to cause a hurricane 9/11 Katrina right over Gotham city.”

On the contrary, I feel that is exactly what we need.

Damn, I should stop pitching better movies every time a possible train wreck is announced.

To be fair, I think that the casting of Robert Patterson might actually work. Time will tell, I guess.

That's my problem I only remember him in harry potter and as the sparking staking abusive vampire boyfriend, twilight aside though I have not seen him in anything else since that, not saying he couldn't be good but he is the last choice I would have thought of pitching for a DC role like this.
