Avengers:Endgame

It's a bit sad sackish and I'll be wrecked for work tomorrow but anyone else off to the midnight showing tonight? 10 years, 20 films, some poor, some good. They're not everyone's cup of tea but I grew up reading Marvel comics and the whole MCU is probably my go to for a comfort movie if I'm feeling sick. Kind of like Star Wars and the Indiana Jones films when I was wee. 

 

The whole project of building an interconnected movie universe on this scale has been pretty ambitious and impressive. Arguably unparalleled. I'm looking forward to seeing how they wrap up all the loose ends, I expect Stark and Cap to die, possibly Hawkeye and War Machine too. 

 

I know there'll be a bunch of "kid's movie" comments and, yeah, maybe it is a bit sad a 40 year old man is genuinely excited about watching it but **** it, looking forward to seeing Ant Man explode in Thanos' ass. 

 

Actually, that doesn't sound like a kids movie at all.....

I'll be waiting until Sunday. Loved the whole project and have been to see everyone. 

 

Doubt we will we see it's like again. To have this Game of Thrones/breaking these past ten years has been delightful.

Who'd have thought Thor would drink Innis and Gunn and Irn Bru? He's clearly a superhero with great taste.

Friends of mine went to cineworld to watch the double header last night. The projector in their screen wouldnt work for the movie and they were all asked to leave! Offered either a free ticket, or if you had an unlimited card, a discounted hot dog or popcorn 😂 they were absolutely raging, the heating was also on full blast as it broken!

You think that's sad? I'm considering going to watch it by myself (not at midnight).

My mate option is going tomorrow for his birthday night out with his missus, and my missus isn't intrested enough to sit through 3+ hours of it.

I made my missus sit through Infinity War last year because she had no interest in any of it. Was a “if you see this with me, I’ll see something with you” kinda deal. 

 

She’s now more excited for us to see Endgame tonight than I am. Watched through the universe twice now and we’re rushing home from work to watch Infinity War before we head out tonight.

Is it suitable for a 7 year old?

 

My lad love infinity war but worried he won't sit through this or it isn't suitable.

Depending on your 7 year ol, yeah, it's suitable. Nothing too complicated to follow, nothing too terrifying. I'll be honest though, while it was a good way to wrap up the 20 movies, they could've ramped up the octane just a smidge. It's not a slow film by any means but I wanted the last installment to be 100 mile an hour from start to finish. Sometimes it drops to 60.

Felt the film was slow at times and took a while to get into the action but did have some funny jokes in it.

My son is 8 and is going to see it on Saturday. My worry is he will be bored at parts of it.

Good film but not as good as Infinity war.

Watched it this morning. Content wise it's fine, even if I broke down a bit near the end (no spoilers) . Length might be a deal breaker but it wasn't an awful lot longer than infinity war if I'm not mistaken

I thought the opening sequence of events went in way too fast and was worried they'd paced it all wrong but there ended up being so much content that in the grand scheme of things it was all spot on. 10/10

I thought it was a mess.

The first half of the film was utter drivel.

Went to midnight showing last night.

 

Thought it was excellent. First half was really funny and second half was brilliantly done.

 

Considering trying to find time to go again over next few weeks.

The film that culminates a series that has spanned 22 entries is bound to have a tear jerker or two. I don't think that's a lot to say

Just back from seeing it. Can’t decide whether I thought it was the best of the entire series or one of the poorest. Need to digest it.

This is my thoughts after seeing it last night. I suppose it closes off a few story lines but also opens up even more.

The dude with the wings (cant remember his name), whats he going to get up to? 

Thor, wheres he going?

Hulk?

Captain Fantastic?

Guardians?

Young Spiderman?

Ant Man & the Fly?

Buckie & Nick Fury?

Etc.

Cant see that lot going off quietly into the night.

Watched it last night, thought it was great. so much going on in it, would love to watch it again but not sure cant fit 3 hours in, might just show up for what is essentially the second act.

 

Agree it was slow at times but think it had to be, kind of like the first two eps of GoT this season, audience need to have time with characters catching up/meeting for the first time and theres such a huge ensemble that's not easy

My 8 year old loves all this shite but 3 hours is a bit much for him to sit through.

 

Anyone heard of anywhere doing a sort of 'bairn friendly' type affair? A break after an hour and a half sort of thing. Ive had a look around and cant see diddly squat.

My 8 year old son loved it but wouldnt drink his juice as he said he would then need to go to the toilet and would miss some of the film. The Dominion used to have a wee break during long films - might be worth checking there

Thought it was brilliant and gave fans a lot of nice little easter eggs.

 

It has broken the record for biggest opening weekend ever (previously set by Infinity War) and that is with the entire weekend still to be accounted for. Pretty mental numbers.

I just watched it and feel the same.

 

My current thoughts are of feeling underwhelmed.

 

So many questions!

 

The one that's bugging me most is, where is Gamora? If she's alive, then why couldn't they bring Black Widow back? I suppose that will resolved in guardians 3 and the standalone black widow film possibly.

My main issue is with Thor, they have made him less po-faced over the years but they have also massively diluted his true strength and power. He should have been able to destroy Thanos himself. 

 

Instead they have made him a bit of comic relief and instead of rebuild g a true Asgard he will now be a comedy sidekick in Guardians 3,which could be fun

It was 2014 Gamora that's alive. I guess she was a bit confused by the whole Quill thing and made a sneaky getaway. Like you I presume that'll be the subject of guardians 3. 

 

Some chat that 2018 Gamora and Romanov are trapped in a world inside the soul stone. Maybe that's how they address the BW film, though personally I hope it's a prequal and they leave her sacrifice as it is, which was a fitting ending to her journey. 

 

God I'm a nerd

Yeh agreed about her sacrifice being a fitting end.

 

In regards to Gamora, I meant that they now can time travel so why can't they bring for example a 2014 version of BW (or anyone for that matter) into the present day regardless of whether one version of them is dead as they are saying the 2 (or more) versions aren't linked hence why Nebula doesn't kill herself when she kills the 2014 version.

 

If a 2014 Gamora can exist then anyone can surely. Also the 2014 version of her was on Thanos side when she arrived in the present day so should really have vanished in Iron Man's snap?

 

Probably over thinking it all but one thing I've liked about Avengers has been the relative consistency and I feel like some of that went out the window in endgame (people being able to hold infinity stones for example)

Re the bringing people back thing, was there not something in the film about not having enough Pym particles to do lots of jumps, which was why they only had a small number of attempts? I know Cap and Tony went back further to get more, but can't remember just how much they secured. Maybe thats the reason, dunno, need to see it again. 

 

Like you i've appreciated the relative consistency. Its what annoyed me so much about Ragnarok, it turned Thor into an incompetent joke which was out of kilter with his previous appearances. I know it got good reviews but I hated Ragnarok, worst film of the franchise for me. You're right, the gauntlet was passed around like a football at one point! :)

Ah yes, I forgot about the Pym particles!! Good shout.

 

I really liked Ragnarok as a standalone film but yes it was completely out of sync with anything that had gone before it...though I guess after Dark World they probably felt they had to take it in another direction.

 

I went to see it with my girlfriend who just accepts everything in a film at face value so good to geek out on here. Cheers 👍👍

True, and a good point, though I think it opens up more questions around how he would identify who went and who stayed but to ease my mind I'll go with that solution.

Is it not the case that BW needs to stay where she is, as in that timeline, the stones have been used, so there is no going back.

 

2014 Gamora is there, because in the timeline she came from, she was never sacrificed for the soul stone.
