    So, the final installment of the Phase 3 in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is out. After the tour de force that was Infinity War, this is a completely different take on a super hero movie.

    I've watched it twice. Once on Wednesday and again today and I have to admit that it's amazing. Straight up. If you know the other movies there are so many Easter Eggs, references and even scenes that will increase your enjoyment.

    I think it's too early to spoil but here's a thread to start the most expected movie in 2019.

    9,5/10 - there's a pacing issue at times, though, it's better the second time, so I guess it's not too important. And there's a plot issue I really, really don't like.

    No, I did not. I was busy this weekend with some renovation work on my house. The plan has shifted to next weekend. I wanted to see this ever since I went to see Captain Marvel. Only a week late, but hopefully the crowds may have diminished by then.

    Yes. And Chris Evans played pretty well in the scene. You could easily see he didn't believe in the BS he was pushing.

    I saw it yesterday. My daughter cried and cried. She literally cried for a minute before she could start the car.

    It was by far the best movie of the all the movies. Small spoiler...do not wait to see if something is after the credits...there is nothing. Waited and waited for norhing lol.

    This movie was everything I thought it would be. Scenes that made you want to cheer and scenes that made you cry. Outstanding effort.
    I have to say, I love, love, LOVE Carol Danvers' new hair at the end of the movie.

    There is one small thing at the very end of the credits. Not a scene, exactly, but a sound.

    When they show the Marvel logo at the very end, you hear the sound of a hammer striking an anvil or something a number of times.

    I understand this is a callback to a scene from the first Iron Man movie when Tony Stark was forging the first Iron suit. The original Iron Man was the movie that kicked off the Marvel Cinematic Universe movie series which continues today.

    More than a little disappointed in how little they utilized Captain Marvel, but I get it, this was kind of a swan song for the original Avengers, all of whom lost so much on the journey. Captain Marvel is the future going forward.

    Stay tuned for Spiderman: Far From Home, which will mark the actual end of MCU Phase 3. A few things need to be explained before they close out this phase.

    I just saw Avengers Endgame for the first time, having never been a fan of comic books, I didn't understand parts of the story. An interesting mix of quantum physics, dazzling futuristic special effects, and post world war 2 nostalgia made for a good movie though.
