We finally managed to see Infinity War. I’m not even sure what just happened. I feel betrayed. Angry. Grief-stricken.
This was one of the most AMAZING things EVER! This shit never happens. There’s a comfort in knowing that all your favorite characters are going to survive and that they are going to win the battle. That didn’t happen.
I cried when Gamora died. I could see it coming and I couldn’t do anything to stop it. I lost my shit when Quill lost his shit. I cried when when Thanos actually did what he said he was going to do and people just started disintegrating. Again, I was prepared for death. I knew it was coming since it had taken me two months to see it. The tears were not as hard or as many as they should probably have been, but even knowing that people were going to die, I cried.
Now, having the foreknowledge that some of those people have upcoming movies. Does that mean they are back and the time stone fixes all wounds or that they are re-envisioned. I personally would love to see Shuri (T’Challa’s sister and mega genius) take over the Black Panther role. That would be AMAZING!
I might have to see it again to take it all in.
Ross and I just got finished watching Suicide Squad. What the hell was that? No, seriously, what the hell was that? I just don’t understand why Marvel movies are so good and DC movies are so bad. I mean, I do. DC movies always have too many characters, too much shit going on, and zero plot and/or character development. We got through an hour and NOTHING had happened yet. I’m so confused about what the point of the Joker even was. Also, why did Jared Leto get second billing? He was in it for like 15 minutes and not even all together.
However, I am in love with the fact that Margot Robbie clearly binged on Batman the Animated Series to watch Harley Quinn and pick up the mannerisms and, let’s face it, the crazy. She was clearly the highlight.
Also, Ben Affleck makes some cameos as Batman. I personally think that Ben Affleck is a horrible actor. He should really just stick to doing things behind the camera. He’s a phenomenal director, screen writer, and producer. The issue with his performance as Batman is that it wasn’t even his fault. I can’t even blame Batffleck for the horribleness of Batman vs Superman or in Suicide Squad. The movies themselves were horrible.
I have huge expectations for Wonder Woman.
I expect that not only that it follow the Captain America model but that it will actually be good. Coming from DC, though, I can’t be sure. And that, makes me sad.
