ARCHIVE Day 64: infinity war was pretty good, i guess…

Original Release: May 1st, 2018

Those who’ve been reading my blog for a while now will know that I was… worried about Infinity War. It was the last straw: if Marvel couldn’t give me a story with genuine tension and consequences for the actions of the characters.

I won’t spoil anything.

But they totally did.

No movie has left me happier in a long time. Seriously, the ending of this movie is basically perfect. It feels ripped straight out of a dark comic book story. And I assure you, it’s pretty dark.

This is easily the darkest Marvel movie made in the MCU. The heroes are constantly defeated, the Universe is rapidly going to a dark place, and people die. I won’t spoil who, how, when, where, or why. But a lot of people die in this movie.

It’s hard to go into a lot of depth without spoilers. But I’ll just say one more thing: Thanos was a fantastic villain. He’s powerful, intimidating, and insane, but still somewhat sympathetic. He is the hero of his own story, and he suffers to achieve his goal. It’s amazing to watch a Marvel movie where I want the big bad to defeat the heroes.

Without spoilers, of course, I don’t have much to say. I’ll just say this: go see Infinity War. Seriously, it’s a fantastic comic book movie and it gave me everything I had wanted. They’ve been building up to this one for a long time, and they didn’t disappoint.

Well done Marvel. Well done.

Now when is DC gonna get their shit together?
