    Maybe start an Endgame thread with spoiler tags on thread (like GOT thread) so even retards who havent seen it will know to avoid it.
    "I think we could all do with sitting back a bit and detaching ourselves from the situation to really think about how these issues reflect on our future and how we discuss them here and be a bit less aggressive or defensive because everyone has a complicated set of circumstances that has led the to place importance on particular issues and it doesn't meany any of them is less valid, we just need to look at the broader picture"

    Currently the only spoiler is that people enjoyed it and that there are no credit scenes. Take it easy m8.

    3 hour movie sounds about right for Endgame.

    If something is actually good then you should be able to know exactly what happens and still be able to watch it and enjoy it.

    I think it was good enough for what it had to do, but fell apart in the last hour. It stopped being a movie and became a... matinee? Everyone gets their box checked.

    Thanos also wasnt quite as impressive a character as in IW.


    Ill put it like this: Its a good finale for the MCU, but a mediocre movie.

    I do agree with you, but even in the case of wonderful movies (or games, for that matter), spoiling something important robs you from the surprise of the moment and that is a really shit thing to do.

    What if in Knights of the Old Republic the big reveal that your player character is actually _you know who_ was to be spoiled before starting the game? All the game would become less enjoyable because that reveal is important as hell.

    A friend of mine who's a general retard managed to blurt out a spoiler immediately after I told him that I'm avoiding social media and shit until I see Endgame. Blocked him everywhere, although I know he's just sometimes retarded, albeit a good chap all around. But seriously, people need to respect this stuff. It really is about having a bit of respect for the person you're talking to.

    Then again, this is the internet, where respect is really not present, although it should be there all the time.

    This being said, I'm seeing Endgame today so until then no more forums/social media for me

    I would not of liked it spoiled only because it's the culmination of ten years of cinema, alot of it trash, some really good, and all fairly entertaining. Was some of it a mess at times? I don't think I hold Marvel tights movies to a standard of cinematic perfection, but it was a fine movie and 3 hours is hard to pace, I felt it did everything right and I enjoyed it a lot.

    Went and saw tonight Endgame.

    I don't think I bawled my eyes out like this since I saw Bambi on VHS when I was 7. Shit was really emotional (for me personally) and it was not just the end, but throughout. Humour was kept to a minimum but was still good.

    It was...okay, I guess. I came in expecting to see
      Spoiler:
    - a massive brawl between all the original Avengers and Thanos
    - a more detailed explanation of why Thanos did it, complete with a sequence involving Death
    - more screen time with Captain Marvel
    - something similar to the way the comics were

    Nebula turned out to be integral to the plot, just like the comics, though. That's good. And we got a big battle at the end.

    But what was the point of putting the Stones back where they were if changing the past couldn't affect the future? And doesn't the universe still have a Captain America on ice if he went back in time to have a life with Carter, thereby eliminating the need to search for him?

    I mean, it wasn't bad. I understand they wanted to do things differently because of the contracts, but this is not the way I would have done it. Infinity War was MUCH better than this.

    Regarding that part in particular i have to especially agree. Didnt really do shit as a character (and got hilariously punted offscreen).

    Scarlet Witch was a bigger threat, and had more emotional impact, for those few seconds.

      Spoiler:
    Saw it yesterday, +1 to most of the points listed above, wasn't expecting them to spend so much time on people crying and would really have preferred more fighting and explosions. On the upside the theater replaced all the shit chairs with comfy reclining ones so at least sitting through it was comfortable

    Mostly just annoyed they didn't make Thanos a better villain, dude looks & sounds cool and everything but his entire master plan was Dr. Evil levels of dumb.

    Also one of the main plot points in Ragnarok was that Thors power came from himself and not his hammer, it just focuses his lighting powers so how the fuck does captain america make it shoot lighting (or make it fucking fly for that matter?)

    WRT to the time travel; The bald chick explained that taking the stones would create a separate branch of the timeline that was different, the main line would remain unchanged which is why they couldn't affect their own future but the new timeline created next to it would then be without the stones. I have no idea why that was considered a bad thing though because in the new universe thanos wouldn't have access to the now missing stones and couldn't kill people which sounds like a good thing...

    The captain america bit kinda breaks their own timetravel rules because by going back he should have ended up in a new timeline where the original captain america is still in the ice or is found and 2 of them exist at the same time. Either way he shouldn't have been able to appear at the end.

    tldr: Don't pay too much attention to the story

    Hence lightning etc from someone that isn’t Thor
