I was kind of stressed out going into this movie. I know… is there anything I don’t stress about? Probably not. It’s just all the rumors about characters being killed off… maybe I’m a freak, but over the last eighteen Marvel movies, I’ve grown attached to so many of them. Watching them die doesn’t work for me.
But watching this movie totally worked for me.
It may be my favorite of all the Marvel films. I’m not sure… I reserve the right to go back on that at any time. But it was incredible. I know Marvel has a billion characters out there but I don’t see how they can let go of any (most) of them. I don’t think they’d stop making money if they kept making movies for a long time to come.
Anyway… I won’t go into any plot details because (1) I suck at writing reviews of anything and (2) I don’t want to ruin anything for anyone.
It was a two-and-a-half hour movie, but I felt like I was in the theater for about 20 minutes. That’s how amazing and exciting every scene was… how great the story was. Not for a single moment was I waiting for things to move along… waiting for something to happen. Nope. Something was happening the whole time. (Unlike Spider-Man: Homecoming… I’m still waiting for that one to get going and impress me. And that movie came out in June 2017.)
This movie made me like characters I previously hated. I don’t think I really hate any of them anymore. (I’m talking to you, Captain America.) And it made me love some of my favorites even more. (I’m talking to you, Doctor Strange.) (I’m also talking to you, Thor. But really, how could I love you more?)
I admit, though, that I am still stressed after seeing the movie. (I know… I have a problem.) This movie is technically ‘part 1‘… so ‘part 2‘ is still on the way. In a fucking year. Yeah, thanks Marvel. This movie left us sufficiently hanging. When you get to the end, you don’t really know how it ends.
It’s a brilliant movie. It’s even better than the hype. There were tears… and laughs… and clapping… and cheering. And that was just me. No, it was a lot of people. That theater was packed and everyone loved this movie.
If you care about superhero movies at all, I cannot encourage you enough to see this film. In IMAX 3D.
Just one last parting thought…
I love Thor so much.
