Reasons Avengers: Infinity War will be GOOD...
« on: April 19, 2018, 08:30:33 pm »
Hopefully the presence of the characters in GOTG plus Dr. Strange and his cohorts will improve the dynamic and level of interest that wasn't there with Avengers and Age of Ultron.

Thanos, bro, Thanos.

Just rewatched GOTG.  Thanos is definitely a boss!  Ronan was just so flat unfortunately.  But I'm hoping Thanos has a bigger role and that we see just how powerful he really is (they've alluded to it, but we haven't really seen it).

I've wanted to see Thanos since they teased him in the first Avengers. Granted, I'm not as into superheroes as I was at that time, but I still hope this film is entertaining. Given how fucking balls to the wall everything is, I'd like to be able to just sit down for two hours and geek out on this film.

I was never that into superheroes - but it has been really interesting going through all these MCU films in order.  Most of my opinions remain the same, but a few have risen (Iron Man 3), and a few have fallen (Avengers).  When done well, I get a lot of enjoyment out of these films.  When it's canned dialogue and elongated non-stop battle scenes, I tend to check out.

Does your theater have assigned seating? The local mainstream theater where I live does that so Iím unable to really pull that off.

No, not at all.  And I live in a smaller town - so usually each screen is at most 1/4 full.  Like, Isle of Dogs was probably a 200 seat theater - there were 15 people in it last week.  So, it's super easy to hop around, and they don't really care as long as you're not obnoxious about it.

My prediction is that this film will end up going the same route in people's minds as the first Avenger's film.  The novelty of having so many characters in one film and seeing all of their action scenes interact with each other will be really cool to see...but eventually that novelty will wear off and it'll just be looked back on as a mediocre film.  We'll see though.

I'm just hoping the presence of more interesting characters like Steven Strange, Star-Lord, Gamora, etc will make the compilation more interesting.  But man was Avengers a much shittier film on 2nd viewing.

The directors that are doing Infinity War did Captain America: Winter Soldier and Civil War - both of which imo were respectable entries in the MCU filmography.  I had assumed Josh Whedon was doing it since he did the first 2 shitty compilation movies.  Hopefully this is less wooden and a lot more fun.
