Avengers: Infinity War (2018)

So, for me, it was pretty good. My biggest complaint is they are now trying to squeeze a joke into every possible space they can. I thought this film was unbalanced because of that. Comedic relief is a thing for sure, but it was a little overboard- e.g. I doubt, given what he had recently lived through, that Thor would have taken the time to joke with Steve Rogers about his beard in the middle of the battle in Wakanda. Infinity War needed less of a Thor: Ragnarok vibe and more of a Captain America: Civil War vibe.

I also thought some of the fight scenes could have been longer and better; especially considering all of the characters in the film. I guess you have to sacrifice some of that when you're squeezing so much content into one film though. Anyone that hasn't read this story arc in the comics won't know what powers Cull Obsidian (which they renamed the Black Order in the film) has. This makes some of the scenes a little less significant for them- e.g. when Steve Rogers catches Proxima Midnight's spear, which was created from a star trapped in a quantum singularity, it's actually a REALLY big deal.

If all the joking between the heroes were contained early in the film, before everything gets serious, it would work out much better. Although, I have to admit, Thanos succeeding (another thing that will shock the hell out of folks not familiar with this story arc in the comics) seemed like a big FUCK YOU to all the heroes that were too busy trying to be as cool as possible to bother saving half the universe :cloud9:

It's a good flick! Go see it!

You know, I think that overall I really enjoyed this film. I had a lot of the same grips that you had but it was a huge improvement over the last two big event films (AoU and CW).

I loved it and had a lot of action and an opening for the sequel.

It has to have a sequel. That is how Marvel functions with their event film but I am looking forward to the next one.

I am sure, hopefully, there was a reason that the hulk didn't want to come out and play.

Most fans were thinking the Hulk was afraid after his first encounter with Thanos, including Michael Walsh from Nerdist.com:

According to the film's director, Joe Russo, the Hulk wasn't afraid. Rather, Bruce Banner and the Hulk are having a personality conflict:

Basically the two "people" hate each other and want ultimate control over the host body [face_thinking]

Makes sense after the Ragnorak movie played out.

Or my theory is they blew through the special effects budget and needed a reason to not have to put him in. /jk

In other news I watched Spider-Man Homecoming and it was pretty good.

Latest fan theory I've read has it that Loki was disguising himself as Banner. Supposedly, that wasn't Bruce Banner at all.

If so then where is Bruce Banner?

imo, that theory has no merit whatsoever and doesn't make any sense.
