I think the movie did a good job proving there isn't a right answer to these questions. In the same breath, it did say there are wrong methods to either.

I saw the Black Panthers.

I had a similar experience to Bort, in that it was perhaps hyped up a bit too much for me, so the reality was a little disappointing.

Nonetheless, it was one of the best MCU movies and had some more interesting ideas than perhaps any of them.

As a linguist who has studied a little bit of Swahili, some of the things bothered me but they were almost exclusively the fault of the comic book writers so I don't blame the movie. It would've been a good opportunity to try to force Marvel to retcon some aspects of Black Panther to be more linguistically accurate. Of course, some could be justified as Wakandan just being unusual for a language in that area.

Spoilered for linguistics rambling:

Ok, it has been mentioned elsewhere, but not here yet, for some reason, Avengers: Infinity War (, part 1 - as I insist on calling it still)


I don't usually watch most movies on the big screen, and that includes even most Marvel flicks, but I watched this twice this weekend, in 2D and 3D according to what they had that day (I preferred the 2D, as tends to be the case).

So much amazingness, and, to quote myself from elsewhere: can I just say FUN?! At least the first 2/3 of the film was just one amazing moment after another. Various characters meeting and reacting to each other, the humour, the scenery. Just amazing.
Last third also amazing, but differently.
And awesome though it would be if Marvel just dropped the mic and left everything there, I don't for a minute think that especially the ending of the movie will be permanent, second half coming next year, I think?

I had actively avoided EVERYTHING about this film beforehand outside of the other films and shows, and Peter Dinklage was a super-pleasant surprise for me.



Will the shows reflect any of these goings-on? Agents of Shield used to be tied to the movies to a certain extent, but I think they have pulled away from that after it really dragged them down in the first season.

I had to googelate "barn burner". Could have gone either way, that meaning.

Excellent. :burns:

To be fair, I was very conflicted for several hours after first watching it, and I am still digesting it in many ways.

As has been mentioned already, Brolin did a fine acting job through all the prosthetics and CGI. It was also refreshing to see a villain who truly believed that was he was doing was right -- or at least necessary -- and that he'd be hailed as a hero in the end.

Infinity War was so dense. Usually I can find a favorite something that I can latch onto and say that thing is why I came to see this movie. There's so much great humor and tense drama and fun action and sweet character moments. I literally can't even.

I mean really.

The three things I walked away with in my head: GIANT. SPACE. DWARFS. (Think of Minsc and Boo from Baldur's Gate fame. luls, miniature giant space hamster) Alan Silvestri can score the hell out of a film. And the third is the thing from the post credits.

What's really not helping my inability to is that all this is happening so soon after Black Panther. Now, I was totally jazzed for BP. Too jazzed as I've said. I didn't get any time, really, to hype myself out for Infinity War. I was ready for it but that was about it. That lack of grace period to build myself for the next experience didn't help me watching. Though I otherwise was totes blown out by the movie.

My great hope is that they can keep the Russo Brothers around for special occassions because damn they can work it.



So, yeah.

I definitely have to see it again. At least one (hundred) more times to wrap my head around it all.

Some of the people sitting near me in the theater apparently didn't realize it was 2 parts either, and complained at the end.

A woman about 2 rows back was sobbing loudly near the end.

I thought this was supposed to be a 3 part series so I was very surprised about the pace of the movie.

We saw Deadpool 2 this afternoon and both enjoyed it as much as the first one.

There were multiple laugh out loud moments, ludicrous times of violence/gore, good music and generally great acting. Josh Brolin was great as Cable and they did a great job with him imo.

If you have managed to stay spoiler free so far, keep it that way! I had no idea about "it" and was super surprised and excited. Like I might have actually screamed/cheered a little.

Overall, if you enjoyed the first one I think you'll enjoy this one.

I liked some aspects better than the first (I thought the humor was a little too immature in the first one, but this one had a better balance) so overall I liked it a little better.

I too enjoyed the Deadpool 2. I feel I've spent all my hype resources on Black Panther and Civil War. I'm waiting to build up to Incredibles 2 but I think I've peaked at just "happy to see it." Deadpool 2 was more of the same. But it was a fun same watching Ryan Reynolds play the part he seems to have been born to play. I did kinda fall in fatuation with Zazie Beetz as Domino. And the midcredits sequence is worth the price of admission by itself.
