Avengers Infinity War – Non Spoiler review.

Comments 5 Standard

Wow!

Last night I watched The Avengers Infinity War and what can I say!

So this post is spoiler free as I don’t want to ruin the experience for anyone, so stick with me here as I attempt to tiptoe around the story trying to give as much information as I can while also trying to not give you anything at the same time – and just like Hulks punch it is proving hard going.

I am lost for words. On first reflection it was slower than the first Avengers. I love the first one because it runs so smooth but I felt this one changed speed a few times. Which isn’t a bad thing because let’s be honest they have a lot going on. But it builds nicely and just works on an impressive scale.

What can I say without saying anything. Thanos is a brilliant bad guy – the reasoning behind his motives is somewhat logical in a mad kind of way and even the character development for him was stunning. They have managed to create the character so well that you feel as much emotion for him as you do the others. The emotions might not be the same but they are there non the less.

The teams were brilliant. Bringing everyone together worked so well. The bolshie arrogance of Stark mixed with the comical humor of Star Lord was genius. Spider-Man was a great inclusion throwing his young spirited naivety, yet willing to prove himself into the mix worked just as well as it did in Civil War and they also pair other great unlikely characters up which was something we never knew we needed but now just want to see again – *Cough* Thor and Rocket *Cough*

I was left with a few niggles here and there but I’m going to let it set in for a few days and then come back to it and see how I feel about them. That I think is standard with big films like this and alot of people I have spoken to have said similar things, but that in no way takes anything away from the overall amazing specticle I witnessed.

The ending left me somewhat in two minds. I want one result but think it’s more likely the other thought is more realistic. But that doesn’t change the magnitude of the film and what it means for the overall MCU world – we have seen this universe build and grow for ten years and this film is such a pay off that it’s everything we have wanted and more.

Today the office is a bubbling pot of excitement as everyone is talking about the film, the theories, the trauma. It’s going to be one of those films that will be talked about and dissected for years to come. Leaving questions like – What have I witnessed? Where do we go next? How will we come back from this? To the point where someone has made a google sheet to label questions and thoughts so we can all throw opinions and answers into the mix.

Overall all I can say is the hype and build up did it justice – it’s doesn’t let you down and is a MUST see. If you enjoy the Marvel films even a little bit you will love this one. It’s a long film but from the very start you are thrown into this world and left shocked that the time has vanished. You won’t want it to end and could sit through it all again. I am already planning my second viewing as I think a few watches are needed just to help digest the sheer awesomeness of this masterpiece.

Mentally prepare yourself – it’s a thrill ride and I promise you will love it!

4. What are your three favourite films?
Are you kidding me . . . ermm . . . Die Hard, Pulp Fiction & The Avengers – that is a hard question for me.
5. List 3 fun things you would like to do before you die. I actually currently have a list of 30 before 30 – but if I don’t finish them they will end up on the bucket list. I would like to see the Northern Lights, Learn to play golf and start my own company.
6. If you could go back in time to any point in history, and stay there for 24 hours, just observing, where would you go and why? 1920’s New York City – the era of Gangsters, Speakeasy and Booze Running. I’d love to experience and see that world.

9. What are your main goals (not blog related) for 2018? Buying a House is a big one, though unsure how realistic that is now. Tick a couple more things of my 30 before 30 list and get fit.
10. Who is the most famous person you have met face to face? Briefly describe the encounter. Jason Donovan – Briefly describe isn’t a pun I swear. But I was in my boxers – a few of us were getting changed and he walked in. (Swear Down)
11. What is your favourite alcoholic beverage? Depending on my mood or occasion – I love a nice GnT but saying that an ice-cold beer is always a winner after a long day.

Look who’s back! I have been tagged again – this time by Nathan over at DadsTechHub and on Twitter at: HERE
You should check out that blog, it’s brilliant and inspirational stuff. But now for what you came to see – the Questions.
Mk2.
  1. Why did you start blogging? I started blogging because I wanted to start a Parenting Dad Blog in the future, but then decided to start a lifestyle adulthood blog to build a platform ready for when it becomes a Parenting Blog.
  2. What is the best blogging tip you would give new to blogging? Be yourself, Wow that sounded cliched but it’s true, don’t mould yourself or say / do things you think people want to see. Do or write about what you want. Be yourself. People will respect it more – don’t worry about being too close to the edge or controversial.  
  3. If you could which element of blogging would you dedicate more time to? I would have to say time management – which is a kicker, I would dedicate more time to time. I just struggling to keep things consistent and regular. 
  4. What is the most random fact you know? Not sure if this is a random fact or a random fact about me – so have both. Random: You are more likely to get hurt on the way to an Airport than on the flight itself. About Me: I am allergic to Oranges.

  6. What was the first Cassette tape/CD/MP3 that you ever purchased? Wow god knows! Erm The Grease Soundtrack on CD

  8. If you were a mad scientist, what experiment would you run, if money wasn’t an issue? Human Experiments with Teleportation 
  9. If you could travel in time to your future or past self a message, what would it be? I would travel into the past with the simple message “Time Travel is Real – Be Prepared” – cryptic but fun.
  10. If you could only have 1 piece of technology, what would it be? Real or Not? Because an Iron Man Suit is a must have right? If it’s a bit more realistic I would say a Google Home and all the kit to have a fully automatic house.
  11. Haribo or Jelly Babies? – Haribo hands down, as much as I like Jelly Babies, after one or two they get a bit sickly for me.
