OK, here is my review.
OK so... Uhm... Endgame... Best movie ever, 10/10, the only movie that gave me a heart attack and the only one that convinced me to go see it twice, which will TOTALLY happen.
OK... some elaboration over here. This movie is simply put fantastic. Only like... Two weeks before the world premier I started to feel the true hype (keep count on the fact that the hype for IW started waaaaaaay back
when the first trailer was dropped) on my way to the cinema I was like "Dude... I am going to watch Endgame..."
Endgame is truly the end of an era, a beautiful era of my life. It was just mind blowing. It was awesome, it was perfect. Neither Avatar, nor Titanic can compare to this. This movie was the end of a beautiful phase of my life, a phase that I owe to the Russos, to Feige (hope I wrote that properly) to McFeely, to Markus, to Watiti, to Favreau, to Gunn, and to Lee. They totally changed these past 11 years of mine, and I am extremely thankful for this. I would personally shake all of their hands if I could.
I literally have no words to describe this song, so I will post a meme instead.
But change IW with Endgame.
I could talk entire hours about this movie, about literally
every single minute of it.
It was fantastic.
It was magical.
It was special.
And that third act man... That third act... Like, the movie would have been a huge disappointment without it, but when the SKIES OPENED AND IT STARTED LITERALLY RAINING WITH AVENGERS FROM ABSOLUTELY EVERY SINGLE FRICKING MOVIE...!
That moment literally made my heart stop. Till that moment I was having some small heart spasm but after I saw that
, my heart was like "No. Fricking stop. This is the time of my life."
OK, what else... I am not sure what to think about Hulk. I mean, in some parts of the movie I liked it... But like I want to see him back as either Hulk or Banner. Like, they were building a whole Hulk arc, and this is not the end result I would have wanted.
Contrary to popularly belief, I really really wanted the way they used Thor. It is the perfect ending for his arc. Also the fact that he is now a guardian hypes me for Gunn's third movie sooooooooooooo much! The only thing I would have done is making Korg and Miek joining the guardians too. Really now, I was extremely happy when I saw that they were alive. I really really really
want to see more of them.
The death of Black Widow was pretty meh, I mean after Ronin arrived back on Earth I rolled my eyes and I was like "OK, when are they bringing her back?". And even if they don't bring her back, we still have a whole prequel franchise ahead with the future Black Widow movie.
The final battle, again, was perfect. You could take ANY frame, absolutely ANY frame and it would be impossible not to see at least ten main characters fighting Thanos. I would watch the entire movie again and again and again and again, despite it being three hours long, only for that goddanged final battle. I literally started crying when I saw Spider-Man back, but when the other showed up, from the ones I really wanted to see back and to the ones I didn't even knew still existed, I just froze. My cousins told me how funny I was looking, with a hand covering my mouth, tears in my eyes, not moving.
Also, I am a Captain Marvel hater, but right in the middle of the fight I woke up thinking "I would like to see Danverse here too". And guess what? When she actually showed up I was actually pretty happy! But then I saw her almost killing Thanos, and I was extremely scared. I would really really really hate if she would be the one to kill him, but luckily Thanos was ingenious enough to get rid of her. But then Stark snapped his fingers and of my god, I was absolutely NEVER so satisfied in my entire life.
And then Iron Man's death... Stark was one of my favourite characters ever. He was also the most important figure of the MCU. As I said in the main topic, the first three phases were his
and Cap's origin story. I was really sorry when I saw him dying, but I was somehow... OK with it. Like, I knew that is will happen. Downey's contract expired, and in 2019 he will play in his very first movie outside the MCU. Most of my tears were already wasted for the EPIC
final battle, so I couldn't cry that much anymore. However, I will always rememer him and his last message and he will always remain one of my favourite characters ever.
There was one thing I disliked at his funerals tho. I wanted Stan Lee to be there too. Stan was basically Iron Man's soul father, so it would have been right for him to have his cameo in at his mourning instead of a random car in the 70s. Really this cameo feels very wasted.
Aside from this... Not much more to be said. We spent 10 minutes of credits (first time doing this), just to see the post-credit scene, which never came. However, the thing that we got was enough for me, and even if everybody else in the theatre (which was still almost filled with people, even the staff wanted to see the scene) sighed loudly, I smiled.
I also want to see Morgan taking the mantle of the next Iron Man.
I also was on Bucky's side on the whole "Who is going to be the next Cap?" debate. Like, you can still make a lot of stories with the Falcon, but not that many with Bucky. Well, it seems that the new "Falcon and the Winter Soldier" TV show will dive in into these concepts.
Aside for this... Not really much to be said. Again, I totally adored this movie. It and Infinity War are my favourite movies of all time, and nothing can change my opinion, well at least not for now. If Endgame will not beat Avatar as the highest grossing movie of all time, I will be really pissed.
One more thing: now the timeline of the MCU is totally screwed. I am going to make a whole new topic explaining the current status of the timeline. And believe me
: it's not nice at all.
