Damon’s Thoughts:

I read the original Infinity Gauntlet when it came out. So I’m a big nerd. I was fan-girling so hard just driving to the theater. I had tried to stay away from spoilers but had seen several fan theories on how this would end.  I had done my research and re-watched the movies leading up to this.  I had thought I was prepared. So many “hads” and it all came crashing down.  It was amazing.  It seemed slow at times because they were building story and not just fighting.  I laughed at so many inside jokes and nerd references, I started to worry the other attendees would get mad at me.  I tried not to cry ( I am not confirming any tears, but I’m not a monster).  The fan theories tried to figure it out, but fell far short of what happens.  No one saw this coming and they did a fantastic job throughout the whole picture.  If you went to see a certain superhero, you were not disappointed.  There where so many threads being pulled in and connected that I will have to watch this movie a dozen more times just to get my brain around what I saw. 

So many questions get answered and so many things happen that you did not even know you wanted.  It takes over 3 hours and you don’t want to miss a moment. I still have more I want to see but I am not left hanging. I just have to wait for the next stage in the MCU. Over all it was just so much to unpack. So to put it simply, End Game Well Played.

Natalie’s Thoughts:

I am not the huge nerd my husband is, which is why I take him to these things and make him write the review. He got all the inside jokes, while I caught a few. I laughed and cried openly. I was a little confused at times, but that is simply because there is so much to see and remember. It was an amazing culmination of over twelve years of movies, and I was enthralled all the way through. I had no idea how they would resolve this, and they managed to pull it all together while still leaving opportunities for more to come which was no small feat. If I could write like that I would deserve all the accolades and money that I hope for them.

I love having movies and heroes that my son can watch and that I don’t have to worry as much about the lessons they are teaching. Marvel does a great job building admirable heroes who are also realistic in their humanity and failings.

I will need to see this again and again to fully comprehend everything that I saw, but I look forward to the opportunity to do so. I don’t love everything I see, and I try not to write negative reviews simply because there just isn’t enough time in the day. On the other hand, I really only write positive reviews of things that I love and want to share with everyone. This was a fantastic movie, and I hope you get the opportunity to see it so we can all sit down and unpack the fantastically nerdy bit of pop culture that was just created.
