I watched Avengers: Infinity War last night, on it’s release day here in Malaysia.
And by all things MCU (Marvel Comic Universe) where do I even begin?!
What the heck just happened?? Everyone faded into dust – did they die? REALLY?
What did Thanos do??
Why did Dr Strange give him the Time Stone?! (Sure, to save Iron Man BUT in the grander scheme of things WHY???)
A conversation I had with my brother last night after we watched it separately:
Him: How waz it?
Me: The ending is distressing!!!
All those who disappeared mean they died??
But some still alive leh
Him: Once the gauntlet is fully powered, just a flick of the finger half of the universe population gone.
Me: So just random selected?
Me: What did Thanos do at the end?
Reading some theories abt part 2
Him: Gamora did ask that question. Thanos replied that once he restore the balance he will rest and look at the sunset
Me: Read that part 2, antman and captain marvel will save the day
Me: Did u rmbr all the prev characters and storylines? Or did u do some revision before watching just now?
Him: Still remember
Me: I always thought the bad guy in Gotg same as Avengers but someone ever told me last time I was confused😂…guess they were the ones confused
Him: The audience clapped and cheered when Thor appeared in wakanda
And then at the final scene when ppl start disapearing and screen fades to black, the audience were freaked
Me: Freak like how?
I was close to screaming in frustration at the end
Him: The one sitting next to me blurted out wtf 😀
Me: Aaahh okk…similar feeling w most ppl
Him: And had to bear thru like 10mins of credits to see the end credits only to find more bleak scenes except the marvel logo at the very end.
Me: That’s Captain Marvel logo
Me: At first i thought wonder woman logo but different universe so no haha
Him: Since it is a 2 part..so next we will get origin story of cpt marvel and how nick fury established another team after going underground.
I guess they wanted to have closure for most / half of the characters.
Me: That’s not closure! That’s just killing them off! 😱
Part 2 maybe involve time travel and all the heroes (or most) don’t die in the end
Him: I wished dr strange did use his stone but didnt
Me: Actually, i didn’t watch any trailer or whatever for infinity war and didn’t realise got part 2 so the end just like that was really unexpected 😅
Him: But dr strange did told stark there is 1 out of 4 mil future outcomes that they win
So i guess the remaining heroes will team up with cpt marvel to defeat thanos
Me: Ya! That’s why am expecting some time travel trick just now…so now, that’s expected in part 2
Him: Black widow did she fade away?
Me: Don’t recall..
Him: Gotg team only left racoon right?
Me: Think so..the lady w antenna?
Him: Mantis..not sure.
Me: Don’t recall
Him: I am not disappointed with the movie coz u dont get to see villains actually win
Me: Definitely still around is Iron Man, Hulk, Cap, Okoye..
Him: Esp all this while in superhero movies
Me: I am not disappointed. Just find it distressing. Wanna watch again
Him: Im sad a bit that those who manage to leave asgard at the end of thor ragnarok all died. Except thor.
When i see loki killed off early in the movie..i somehow knew its gonna start the bodycount.
Me: Before watching, so many rumours / questions of which hero will die etc… Figured it would just be 1..not so many..
Him: Did u see the youtube clip i shared this morning where the villains played deadpool?
Me: No. Only saw it just now aft i watched the movie. Didn’t wanna spoil it in any way
Thru the whole movie, in denial when the characters die… Still in denial haha
Him: Somehow that clip is kinda accurate. Got many heroes gone
Me: One review said “all the deaths will feel justified”… I disagree. I don’t feel so.😅
Him: Even has hydra
Me: Didn’t really read all the names on the board
Him: Even at the end of the clip before thanos left the bar he said some of them villains might not be around if he succeed
Me: The way spidey died though…with the rest is just fade… With him, u can see pain😱
Him: Hydra is one of the villan in the bar la
Me: Which one is hydra again lol…anyhoo, thanos also said that line abt remembering to Iron Man…and the villain bar thing
Him: Hydra is the one who met Thanos and Gamora on the soul stone planet
Top things I disliked about Infinity War:
- The ending is distressing!
- StarLord caused the plan to get the Infinity Gauntlet off Thanos’s hand to fail!!! Urgh!
- Why didn’t Dr Strange turn back time and prevent everything that happened from happening?
- Did Loki really die? From the very beginning of the movie, questions and in denial as beloved characters died one by one…
- Spiderman’s death in IronMan’s arm moment
Top things I liked about Infinity War:
- Most of our favourite Marvel characters in one movie – YAY!
- Aww moment between Loki and Thor, before Loki dies
- Thor meeting the Guardians for the first time – this was hilarious!
- StarLord vs Thor “Who is MORE man than the other” moment
- Thor vs Gamora vs StarLord “Who had a more tragic family backstory” moment
- IronMan vs Dr Strange “Who is better” moments
- IronMan, Dr Strange and Spiderman meet the Guardians
- “Why is Gamora?” HAHAHAHA
- Dr Strange to StarLord: “Who is your master?” (was that what he said?)
- I have more but this list is getting too long already
So yes, clearly the likes is more than dislikes so of course I enjoyed the movie. EXCEPT. FOR. THE. ENDING.
And now we have to wait for a year for Infinity War Part 2! (Release in May 2019).
However, I am looking forward to Captain Marvel though… and what that implies for Part 2.
So, what are your thoughts?
Favourite and least favourite part of the movie?
