Holy shit, did I enjoy it. I wouldn't say i'm the biggest marvel fanboy, considering I haven't seen most of the newer ones, but damn did I enjoy this one. Makes me want to go back and re-watch the entire mcu, which i might once endgame gets a dvd/blu-ray release or if they release a box-set of the series.

SPOILERS AHEAD
Where to begin?
The whole movie takes place five years after infinity war, but before the time jump Captain Marvel shows up, rescues tony and nebula. They detect Thanos using the stones, again, and head to where he's hiding. There's a brief confrontation where he reveals he used the stones to destroy the stones. Thor then decapitates him.

Cue five year jump

I was surprised how small Captain Marvels role was. She appears at the beginning, rescues tony and nebula, hangs around for like 10 minutes, then buggers off for the rest of the movie. She reappears at the end when everyone's having a go fighting Thanos, but gets punched away quickly.

Thor gets fat, and feels regret for not defeating Thanos. He's spent the time since drinking and apparently playing fortnite (I'm not kidding in the slightest)

Unsurprisingly, they use time travel to go back and retrieve the stones before Thanos gets them. Each stone was basically a flashback to previous movies, with the first avengers film getting some great extra scenes, mostly involving the hulk. There's also a great scene when Rhodes jokes about going back and strangling a baby Thanos

Captain america has a hail hydra scene, shortly before fighting past Captain America.

Thor gets mjolnir again, and proceeds to dual-wield that and stormbreaker.
Speaking of mjolnir, Captain America weilds it during the final fight with thanos

Everyone gets brought back, minus the two that got turned into soul stones.

There's a final fight where most of the main heroes get a chance to beat up on thanos.

Thor joins the guardians of the galaxy
I suck at hitting key points without just summarising but i'm trying not to just spoil the entire movie, Though I will if someone wants.

I do wonder what they'll do now that the infinity stone arc is over. Will we get another long-form arc or maybe a series of smaller ones covering 2-3 movies, kinda like the setup to the first avengers, or is it just going to be individual character movies with occasional team-ups. Do they even have another story-line they could use as a long-form story arc. I know civil got a second version, so I guess we might see that at some point

Since a lot of characters are getting new movies still, like the second Spiderman movie coming out this year. Another teamup with a different composition and new characters is not out of the question, they made a huge cinematic universe of course and they will keep cashing in on it. As to what type of storyline they will follow, that could be anything really. The infinity gauntlet saga is one of Marvel's most popular comic book crossovers, there's plenty of other stories to use, like Secret Wars, and they will most likely introduce replacement characters for the ones that have finished their characters arcs with this movie.

Honestly the MCU isn't going away any time soon.

To be honest I didn't like it, and I find that kinda disappointing because I didn't think it was a bad movie but I really didn't like it.

I don't know if the movie is missing something or if it's just me because I'm kinda tired of super-hero stories now, I got tired of super-hero comics a very long time ago and I'm pretty sure I'm tired of the movies by now, so it really might just be that, but to me the movie seemed all over the place, like there was no focus and no consistent tone and it really irked me.

Let's start with the fact that I kinda really dislike Tom Holland as Spider-Man, no good reason he just personally irritates me and I find him very unlike-able, there are other factors such as that I don't feel his version of Spider-Man deserves to be Spider-Man since he's really more Iron-Man's apprentice than his own hero here, and I really dislike that his big moment had to do with using one of the suit's abilities rather than his own physical or mental abilities, but the point is that I really don't like this Spider-Man at all.

It also bothered me how much emphasis they put into War-Machine getting out of the Crumbling house just to solve it off-screen and then have him do nothing for the remainder of the movie, I would have preferred they cut-back on so much spectacle and just give some sort of pay-off to that sequence, especially since they bothered to put him in a different armour rather than just getting him out of there.

There are tons of other little things I could mention but to be honest they are nothing but nitpicks that my mind picked up just so I could make excuses of why I didn't like this movie, the main issue (Entirely personal and subjective BTW) is that I felt nothing, I liked the idea of the arc they gave Thor but I really didn't care when they showed that scene with his mom that was supposed to be emotional, I really liked Black Widow but I was completely indifferent to her death and I do like Iron Man but I didn't even feel a little bit sad when he died, and I don't know why, I've seen pretty much all of these movies and I haven't really disliked them, for the most part I like them but I have 0 emotional investment in these characters.

IDK, I'm just disappointed that I couldn't enjoy it.

I saw it on Thursday, I still haven't quite digested it entirely, I really liked it, but the Movie is very choke full of different things happening, it's difficult to give a nuanced opinion having only seen it once. I'll say more when I can.

Just saw this yesterday. As someone who really disliked Infinity War, I think this was pretty good. They really had to pick up after the mess that Infinity War made, and in that regard, they did an admirable job and brought it to a satisfying conclusion.

HAVING SAID THAT, this movie would be the perfect endpoint to just stop making Marvel movies for a while. But we all know Disney isn't gonna do that and they're gonna continue churning out Marvel movies until it becomes the next Call of Duty. Which sucks ass, because again, Endgame would have been a superb conclusion to a now kinda tired series.
