Absolutely loved it. Can't wait to see how the next phase plays out after these events. And cool seeing the kid from IM3 at the funeral.

Gotta admit, the opening sequence to the main battle where Dr. Strange is opening all the portals and we see everyone back from the snap, well I got some chills from that. lol

They did the whole time travel thing really well, IMO. Way less cheesy than I thought it would/could be. Every scene after they got back was simply phenomenal. Korg getting called a dickhead by noobmaster69 on fortnite almost made me pee myself.

I think they did an excellent job of giving the send offs the way they did. Overall, I very very very much enjoyed it, especially when reflecting on it

Between "On your left" "Avengers assemble" and then "I am Iron Man" the callback game was strong (there was much more than just those but those three gave all the chills).

Something else I was thinking about, the Loki from the time travel timeline that escaped with the Tesseract gives them the chance to say Loki is no longer dead and he can show up again. This pleases me.

It was a pretty good movie but I don't understand why Thor used the Time Stone to witness 9/11 over and over again. It felt really out of place.

Armond White's commitment to fucking with people is legendary.

Quote:
Adults no longer outgrow comic books. Hollywood prefers that they hang on to the adolescent illusion of carefree, escapist pleasure by pretending that the form’s juvenile cynicism is a sign of sophistication — replacing the traditional sources of imaginative thinking. The cultural monopoly represented by the Marvel Cinematic Universe in its latest release, Avengers: Endgame, depends on geeked-up viewers telling themselves that they are having a major cultural experience.
Quote:
Infinity Wars triggered faux-tragic fascination. Less urgent than Han Solo’s carbon freeze in The Empire Strikes Back, it was more like the “Who Killed J. R.?” narrative cheat on the TV series Dallas. However, been-there-done-that doesn’t matter to the Star Wars–Lord of the Rings generation still caught up in toddler enthusiasm: “Do it again, Daddy!”
Quote:
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.
Quote:
The directors Anthony and Joe Russo do routine CGI action, but they don’t know how to supply meaning to any of the goings-on, and that’s the major difference between MCU and the D.C. Comics Universe, which advanced from Christopher Nolan’s nihilism to Zack Snyder’s visual richness and emotional depth. Snyder’s Watchmen was the first comic-book movie to deal with mature themes and play out a credible moral dilemma. Going deeper with Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Snyder’s art angered the kiddies. MCU fans don’t know what great filmmaking is. They defer to their post–Star Wars indoctrination. The Russo brothers’ big battle isn’t a climactic summation, just a clash of CGI dots like the indecipherable, interminable Lord of the Rings skirmishes. And the sentimental, nostalgic farewell to two beloved Avengers is hokey. Snyder rescued comic-book movies from nihilism and juvenilia, making modern myths worthy of adult spirituality and politics. Avengers: Endgame takes place in a violent kindergarten.

Sounds like a DC fanboi who is butthurt Marvel has a cohesive movie universe and DC has Zach Snyder's cinematic diarrhea.

Calling anything SNyder has done emotional richness should be the standard of revoking your film criticism license.

Just got back from End Game and I loved it. Very satisfying. Only one problem i have is Gamora can come back but Black Widow can't? Otherwise they did a phenomenal job to end this and most people should be happy.

Well yeah it is in that sense. Why couldn't Cap get a "different" Nat when he went back to deliver the stones?

Am I being prisoner of the moment when I say that the "on your left" sequence is the biggest "fuck yeah" moment in MCU? lol

Oh and I know it was also a bit cheesy "over the top", but Cap first using Mjolnir was pretty badass.
