    Same! I grabbed my wife's leg at that exact moment you're talking about and she looked at me like.. "What?" and I just nodded at the screen.

    I did the same thing in the cold open, because it was very obvious which direction they were heading.

    What good does a prequel do at this point except to just tell a tale I guess?

    I guess, now that I'm calling Thor my favorite out of the group, I should watch 2 and 3... Maybe just 3.

    Even though Dark Wold is 2nd to last on my list, there's an important relationship arch between Loki and Thor that develops in the 2nd movie and is carried into the third. So not totally a throw away movie, despite the fact the villain and stakes are dumb. Also, you may have lost context with the Thor and his mom convo in Endgame [
    ]

    A Prequel Black Widow story could be fun though and you could make a ton of them. Maybe we'll finally see the Budapest Mission that she and Clint are constantly referencing. I like the idea of making stand alone espionage-mission-impossible-james-bond-like MCU films considering the Winter Soldier is my favorite MCU film.

    My old review of Ultron was that I was tired of RDJ's shtick, but I still like Thor and Bruce Banner a lot. Marvel must have read my mind since Thor 3 is all Hulk and Thor IN SPACE (and no RDJ) played as a funny comedy. No coincidence it's my fave MCU movie.

    Yeah... I think I'll stick to just 3.

    I have a great idea for a ranking system of my favorite heroes that I'll put together on a plane this evening. Hopefully it works...

    Saw this yesterday morning and I was genuinely blown away by it in ways that largely overpower any critical analysis. The whole last hour was basically pure tearjerking moments, even (or especially) the more joyful stuff.

    Still difficult to really gather thoughts beyond that, but to this point:

    Trust. If nobody is having PTSD about their NYC being destroyed, no one is going to even talk about being a "snap" victim. Homecoming will move along like nothing happened.

    Speaking of, that's why I expected Cap to live, or him and tony to die. No way cap goes and tony doesnt. With Tony's reaction to NY, he kill himself with grief if cap sacrificed.

    I still prefer and miss the looseness that Whedon infused in the series. That said, this is probably close to the best version of this movie that we were going to see. Iím not so cynical that I canít appreciate a good bit of fan service when itís well done. This was a deft blend of emotional payoff and leaving some doors open. They did a good job of rewarding those who watched everything while telling a coherent story.

    I think they delivered exactly what their fans wanted to see, and I canít fault them for that. It may not be high art, but certainly well conceived and skillfully done nonetheless.

    It was fine, and sometimes very good--the score was trying too hard through the first two hours--every moment was scored as though it was life or death, so that the bombast became too much by the time we got to the final act.

    I really, really, really like the meanness and sneakiness of the opening scene with Hawkeye; equally like the elevator scene, which is a cute inversion.

    There were a few moments that absolutely worked.

    [
    ]

    The Hawkeye and Black Widow fight for the infinity stone carried itself out a bit too long--so that its pathos became more like parody of endless reversals for me.

    The action sequences here weren't ever as strong as those in prior films, but it was probably as solid plot-wise as could be expected. Thor has become the MVP of these films, and I hope that future films can find the touch that Thor 3 had...

    It's overstuffed, but it has some real zingers of unexpectedness. Even though the last 45 minutes are quite fan-servicey, it was still pretty awesome. At the same time, there are moments that basically feel like "people loved this in Infinity War so we'll do it again here but bigger." Also, a looooot of the humor did not work for me (just me, or did that "take a pic/don't take a pic with the kids" thing go on for like 5 minutes?), tho I loved Thor in this. The whole thing is surprisingly shaggy (like a proper heist-gone-to-hell would be), but it's pretty fun overall. As one reviewer put it, ScarJo finally got to act in one of these movies! And she really knocks it outta the park. Didn't really like Hulk in this, sadly. At least it was a very interesting experience not really knowing going in what was going to happen, tho some asswipe did spoil the biggie death for me.

    Still a fun ride and I was far too confused to judge it at this point. Need a few more watches to see.

    Something I realized today. The decision to make Thor hang with the Guardians of the Galaxy was because the GotG need someone to go toe to toe with Adam Warlock in vol. 3. Otherwise Warlock would wipe the floor with then.

    I believe so, but I'm unsure how exactly he gets back some of them to their original place. Like the soul gem? The reality gem?
