Avengers: Endgame


My family and I went to see Avengers: Endgame and I enjoyed it immensely.  I will not do a formal review of it, since I think it would be impossible for me to do so without sounding like Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons.


Suffice it to say if you have ever had any interest in Marvel Comic book characters, or simply enjoy a good rousing film of adventure, you should enjoy it.  As he did in the Guardians of the Galaxy flicks, Rocket Raccoon stole every scene he was in.


Quite a bit of humor in the film, especially in the depiction of Thor:


Deathless film for the ages?  Of course not.  A film that manages to be three hours in length without ever getting boring, yes!  Just put your mind on neutral as to time travel paradoxes before going to see it.


A fun film, not to be taken seriously.

More to explorer


  1. I liked it too except for the use of time travel. Seems like a writers cop out to me. Things don’t work out…just go back in time to fix it.

  2. Not reading this since I haven’t seen it yet but i just wanted to say that I encourage you to let your geek flag fly. (Ok I read the first sentence. )

  3. RE: Time Travel… it’s a movie.

    There will be no “next time”. Bank on it.

    That kind of thing… just bugs me.

    One Avenger, named “War Machine” (Don Cheadle), inquires why they can’t just find baby Thanos and strangle him to death. The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) immediately reacts with disgust and dismisses the suggestion, and the whole scene is meant to be funny. But the glaring issue here is that a hero has suggested infanticide, and no one explains why this was an awful suggestion.

    Except YOU JUST SAID THE HULK REJECTS IT! It’s very clear the scene is black comedy. And nobody bothers to talk about it beyond a gut rejection because to stop in the middle of the story and deliver a moral message would make the movie awful. Nobody wants to go to the movies to hear preaching.

    Given these realities, I’m not sure we can dismiss this moment in Endgame as a mere tasteless joke; rather, it seems that the Avenger who brought up infanticide was simply suggesting an option that is logically consistent with this nation’s pro-abortion philosophy.

    *headdesk* Or – you know – it’s a logical question when you are talking about someone who has killed ONE HALF OF THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE! (a death toll of billions upon billions) Not to mention, if you’re going to condemn someone for even bringing up an idea that would have occurred to almost anybody considering it, then it seems like you would have to condemn the Bible for outright ordering it.

    Third, two prominent characters display a disturbing inability to handle tragedy in anything resembling a virtuous manner. . . . If they occasionally fall, their falls are minor and quickly repented of.


    This is what I’m frequently on about dogma ruining good stories. Apparently for characters to have an arc is too much and goes against the faith! You can’t show anybody at a low point and climb back up, they must be flawless at all times! (ignore those stories like Peter denying Christ)

    Fourth, Endgame is the second straight Avengers movie to endorse the errors of consequentialism and proportionalism. …

    What follows from here is basically what bugs me when dealing with several folks on discussion of morality. Namely that in the effort to avoid consequentialism, they end up in the moral relativity that Buckley warned against: that 2 people, one who shoved a little old lady in front of a bus, and another who shoved a little old lady out of the way of a bus, are both equally bad because both of them shove little old ladies (which is wrong). Or to put it another way: The Allies were just as bad as the Axis because both sides killed Germans.

    they will be given an infinity stone (and thus prevent Thanos from getting it)

    Oh I get it. This person didn’t actually watch the movie.

    Ugh, these kind of critiques are exhausting.
