Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m reviewing Infinity War!
BECAUSE I’M NOT HOLDING BACK
I’ve been waiting for the movie for a long time. I was so worried about it and excited to see and I made a whole post about it which you can read here. I wanted to see this the day it came out but I went out of town and then my family wanted to see it all together so we had to wait but I finally saw it and I am so emotional and it was so good! I loved it. It was so good. I have a lot of opinions on it so again if you have not seen you have to leave. If you are like me, you have been spending all your time avoiding spoilers. It was so hard! It was easy at first but then a week past and then suddenly everyone was talking about it without tagging spoilers and it got so hard that I had to get off Tumblr because no where was safe.
So let’s get talking about this movie because I have so many thoughts and no theories! This movie had my shook from the opening scene. I knew that we would probably begin with Thor and we did. Thanos is attacking the ship that was at the end of Ragnarok and Thor is getting beaten up because Thanos wants the tesseract and then Loki as the tesseract and he tries to attack Thanos and all I could think was don’t do this you idiot! Then he did and he died! I thought that he might die but I didn’t think he would die three minutes into the film! I have no clue if Loki is really dead. I don’t want him to be dead because I love him so much and he is just so great! I can’t believe he died in the first fucking minutes!
Everyone was so great in this film and a person that I surprisingly really enjoyed was Doctor Strange. I don’t know why I just really enjoyed him in this film. He was so great and I loved his interactions with Tony. There were so many good jokes and moments and I’d loved it! I also really enjoyed Tony in this movie because in Ultron and Civil War they sort of made him out as a bad guy but this film we got to see him as a good guy again and I loved it! The chemistry between all the characters was amazing and wonderful. I was worried about how they would deal with all of them but I really enjoyed.
Weirdly I didn’t enjoy the Earth scenes that much which I wasn’t expecting. I thought that I would enjoy them with me always loving Cap, Sam, Bucky, and Scarlet Widow together but this time around I don’t know them seemed to just be there and they weren’t really in that story much. That’s weird because in the trailers it seemed as if they were in most of the film but they weren’t really. I loved Cap’s entrance with the training going by and then there he is looking all cool in the shadows. I just love Cap so much. He is always my favorite. A surprise to me was that I really enjoyed Scarlet Witch and Vision. I’ve never really enjoyed them but for some reason I really liked them. I just connected with them and I loved their scenes.
The Guardians in this film were great as normal. I loved when they met Thor and Peter was trying to one up him and it was so funny. Everyone was just so great. When Gamora died, I was just so sad. Before she died, she was giving that big speech about how he loved nothing and I was like ‘Shut up! He is going to kill you!’ and then she died. I loved seeing more of her relationship with Thanos. It was just so interesting to watch and seeing it play out was just so great. You’ve never seen anything about Thanos and what it was like for her and Nebula you have only heard stuff about it and watching it was so interesting. So let’s talk about the ending because what else is there. So the ending has been talked about a lot since this movie can out and I was so scared to see it.
So Thanos is attacking everything and Strange gives him the Time Stone and I was convinced that it was a trick but it wasn’t. He gives him the stone and I was like ‘What the hell man?’ Then he gets the stone from Vision and Thor wounds him and I’m thinking yeah we’re gonna win but then he is still kicking and he snaps his fingers and goes to some hut! Then Bucky disappears and I fucking lost it. I was crying so hard. Then for a second I thought that Okoye was gonna disappear and then it was T’Challa and I was gone! Then Groot disappears and it was released that he said ‘Dad’ and Omg! Then the Guardians disappeared which was not fair and then Strange disappears but he says that it was the only way which what the fuck does that mean. Then Peter disappears and he is just like I don’t want to go and it reminded me of when David Tennett regenerated into 11 and he said that and I was just crying so hard. Tears were going down my neck! It was just so emotional! My sister was like ‘Calm down it’s okay!’ but it wasn’t okay.
And then movie just fucking ends! With our core four still living but half the universe is gone! And what the hell is gonna what happen next? Strange said there was one outcome were they one and then he fucking gave Thanos the Time stone and before he dies he tells Tony that it was the only way. Is this a plan? It’s not a great plan man. Still pulling that Sherlock Holmes shit and not telling anyone your plan. Another thing that is kind of stupid but I was kind of disappointed that they didn’t make a Sherlock joke because both Benedict Cumberpatch and Robert Downy Jr. have both played Sherlock and I thought it would have been funny. Back to the main point, I don’t know what they are going to next. I know that people are going to live because they have sequels coming out but how the hell are they going to bring them back? So the thing that I’ve thought the most is that they are going to use the time stone to fix things but that would basically make this movie worthless. Time travel is a tricky thing to have in your plot and if you use it to fill your plot hole that’s just not fair.
I was convinced that Iron Man and Cap were gonna make up and then they were gonna die but that didn’t happen so that will probably in the next film. Will they like sacrifice themselves to save the lives of everyone else? A theory that I saw was that their souls are in the soul stone and that’s why when Thanos used it we see baby Gamora because her soul is there. That probably isn’t true but in the comics someone was in the soul stone so it could be a possibility. Honestly Infinity War was a great movie and I think I’m going to give it an -A. I would love to an +A but unfortunately I didn’t like the ending. I’ve never been a fan of open endings and I wasn’t not a fan of this one. I hope that there was a plan for this ending and it wasn’t just for shock value and that they don’t completely erase it. This film is funny and heartbreaking and a step up from Ultron.
That was my thoughts on Infinity War. I’m so ready for Avengers 4 because I need answers and I can’t wait to see Captain Marvel rock it. I’m ready for my girl!
