I’ve seen Infinity War twice as of writing this. I kept debating on and off if I wanted to write about it. It’s difficult to write about the finale of 10 years and 18 movies without spoilers, without giving something away, and the one thing I don’t want to do is spoil this film for someone. So I figured I’d do something completely different.
Last year I did my first after film rant. It was dark, it was terrible, and I slightly spoiled something for someone. This time, I’ll only be talking about my emotions throughout the film, and what I hope for in the future. Hopefully, this way, no one will be spoiled, and I can get rid of these Thanos based thoughts that have been swirling in my head since Thursday.
When I walked into the theater I felt excitement and hope. I was thinking how would they culminate 10 years worth of story telling in two hours? What would happen next.
A quarter way through the film, I felt, very very stressed. There was a lot of death and mayhem going on, and I was hoping for a quick resolution. My stress was only sliced by a sliver of excitement as all the characters were meeting each other.
Half Way through the film, I am just utterly stressed. I can’t talk about what happened because I don’t want to spoil it, but my bottom lip had a groove in it, from pressing my teeth into it for half a film.
3/4 of the way, and I was pretty sad, but hopeful that maybe the gang would be able to turn it around.
At the end of the film, I was angry, sad, and disappointed. It wasn’t necessarily that I didn’t enjoy the film, or didn’t think it was good. I just was not prepared for the culmination of the series in this way. I was not prepared for this film in anyway, every twist and turn hit me like a ton of bricks. I must say that this film should have made me cry, but I was too angry to cry. Once I actually started processing what had happened, I cried a little, but not as much as I expected.
Despite the downward dip in my emotions towards the end, Infinity War kept me enthralled the entire time. I was on the edge of my seat, biting my lip, and my nails, and the popcorn, because all the craziness was making me so concerned for what was going to happen in the film.
