6/10 film. A lot to unpack.  Some good stuff, but some really, really dumb decisions I can't get over. Will hold off posting a review for a bit.

The Hulk and Thanos have totally different abilities.  Thanos is mortal.  The Hulk, in Hulk form, isn't killable as far as I know.  I've never seen the Hulk get cut or bleed.  Both happened to Thanos.

And by the way...here...look at #4.  Explains A LOT...

http://epicstream.com/features/7-Marvel-Characters-That-Could-Single-Handedly-Defeat-Thanos

"Hulk has a higher level of durability than Thanos. Thanos could certainly beat the Hulk when he isnít very angry. If the Hulk was able to be enraged enough early on, or become agitated and survive Thanosí first round of attacks, his immense power could compete and destroy or incapacitate Thanos."

And here's another...

https://www.cinemablend.com/news/1657939/the-9-marvel-characters-most-likely-to-kill-thanos-ranked?story_page=6

After killing her family when she was a child, Thanos claimed Gamora as his "daughter" and raised to be one of the galaxy's most proficient assassins. While she's not as hellbent on revenge against her "father" as Nebula (more on her later), Gamora certainly holds a grudge against Thanos, and if given the opportunity, we doubt that she'd pass up slicing his head off or obliterating him with a giant laser gun. Gamora is on the heroic path now that she's part of the Guardians of the Galaxy, but given her past with Thanos, as well as how all of existence could be destroyed should he succeed, she'll kill her "dad," though the aftermath of that decision would almost certainly be explored in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

Wow - that's literally 2 of the exact methods I mentioned to cut off the hand of an incapacitated Thanos.  Hmm.....

That was literally all articles written about the film. Iím talking about what we were shown in the movie. Either way I think youíre making this out to be a way bigger deal than the Starlord incident which I thought was so much worse.

Yeah, Starlord incident was by far the dumbest thing in that film.

The fact that no one even knows if one of our heroes is capable of losing life or limb just goes to show how little suspense these films have.

Weíre talking about Thanos the villain. And yeah this is one of the few Marvel movies where the stakes feel real.

I was referring to Dylan's statement regarding the Hulk. It made me think for a second... is the Hulk mortal? I don't even know. And I definitely don't care.

You may kind of like this:

Viewed in a vacuum, Infinity War is meaningless. As a standalone film, itís a mess. Characters pop up for one scene and then vanish again completely. Nobody has any meaningful screen time. The antagonist swans about with an entirely unearned sense of motivation. And thereís no emotional weight to the ending. Itís just a lot of stuff happening to people weíve barely met. We may as well be watching it happen to extras.

I kinda disagree with this article. I get what they were going for, but the ending does have impact and it does matter considering the context of the film. Now, if you don't care about the characters then that's fine, I would understand. And sure it does sets up a lot for Avengers 4. But this is the only Avengers film with real stakes and a villain that is worth the screen time.

Disagree.  While BOTH were really lame, the fact that StarLord was overwrought with emotion at finding out that his love has been killed, I can at least 1% give him the benefit of the doubt.  The other issue is simply moronic, especially when taking into account that Dr. Strange had literally severed a limb earlier in the film by that exact method.

Here are the facts...

Number of people who know Thanos well = 3
-Gamora ("Daughter")
-Nebula ("Daughter")
-Ronan (Man who Thanos gave his "daughters" to and his minion of sorts)

Number of people who have mentioned and/or threatened to kill Thanos = 3
-Gamora ("Daughter")
-Nebula ("Daughter")
-Ronan (Man who Thanos gave his "daughters" to and his minion of sorts)

Chances of Thanos being immortal = 0.0%

The overdid the deaths too - the more I think about it - it almost reverses the "real" effect because we know at least half of them aren't permanent, therefore they pretty much all are likely to come back if they want.  They should have been more choosy or at least sneaky about how many and who.

As far as I've been told by my goddaughter and her best friend, who I guarantee know more about this stuff than all of us here combined, The Hulk is immortal when in Hulk form.  Furthermore, when somebody shoots at Banner or a bomb is going to go off or something like that, he instantly turns into The Hulk - thereby he is immune from dying.  However, if he were ever put into a coma like state (like Thanos was for instance) and you negate his almost-innate ability to turn into the Hulk when imminent danger is upon him, you CAN kill Banner which would in turn kill The Hulk which hasn't presented itself.
