89 Thoughts I Had While Re-watching 'Avengers: Infinity War'

I read somewhere that now was a great time to revisit Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, removed from all the hype from a year ago, as well as right before it is given new meaning after the release of Avengers: Endgame. I haven’t seen Infinity War since last May, so I spent my Monday night on Netflix watching the movie from start to finish, writing down all my major thoughts over the 140 minute runtime:

  1. I cannot believe the way Thanos embarrassed the Hulk like that... he is too powerful
  2. Like, someone being THAT much stronger than Hulk??? Incredible.
  3. That Squidward dude is bad AF not gonna lie 
  4. You can feel how different the movie is right from the start... they did such a good job
  5. Loki’s death scene was so painful and uncomfortable to watch the first time around.... still is
  6. This is so CRAZY
  7. Why does Tony have a flip phone
  8. The scene with Dr. Strange, Tony, Hulk vs. Ebony Maw and Cull Obsidian was EVERYTHINGGGG
  9. This long tracking shot of all the chaos is probably my favorite fight scene set-up ever
  10. PETERRRRRRR 
  11. Dr. Strange deserves more than he gets... he was coming with that HEAT!

  28. Cap is so ROGUE NOW WOW
  29. “This is awkward” it literally is Falcon
  30. Ok I get the romantic thing between Vision and Wanda... but this man is a COMPUTER Y'ALL BETTER DESTROY THAT STONE
  31. The Avengers were so naïve they should’ve killed vision. So much of this could’ve been avoided

  37. I remember every time an Avenger or Guardian messed up I was like “It’s a wrap, watch Thanos end up getting all the stones” 🤒
  38. It actually seemed pretty easy for Thanos to acquire all the stones? He did it in such a short amount of time

  45. “Kick names, take ass” 
  46. Tom Holland had the greatest line delivery of 2018 with “it never was” omg
  47. What is the ONE way they can defeat Thanos... this is driving me crazy now!

  65. “You’re much more than a Thanos” what does that mean Mr. Strange
  66. How does Thanos have four whole infinity stones and couldn’t tell that the others were hiding on the planet

  75. Thanos vs. Strange .. ALSO the fight we deserved
  76. OMG remember when Thanos stabbed Tony and said “I hope they remember you” in the trailer & everyone thought it was the end for him, sigh
  77. I’m pretty sure I started laughing in the theater when Strange gave Thanos the time stone because I knew it was over for everybody
  78. “We’re in the endgame now”.. BYE
  79. Literally insane watching Thanos take on (and down) each Avenger one by one
  80. Cap never gave up... my hero I want to hug him 
  81. Let me stress that Wanda is the (second) most powerful Avenger.. wow! 
  82. Oh my God he really did it
  83. THOR’S HAMMER VS. ALL THE POWER IN THE UNIVERSE... REMARKABLE
  84. When Thanos said “you should’ve went for the head” I literally wanted to evaporate
  85. Crazy how I still have that sinking dread while watching the lead up to the snap a year later
  86. “Oh God..” that final line spoken by Cap punched me in the heart this time around for some reason
  87. That last scene with Thanos couldn’t have been a better ending. Ugh wow
  88. The post credits scene gives me COMPLETE anxiety because it feels like an actual end of the world movie.. we had to see the effects on society though. I literally couldn’t imagine
  89. PAGING CAPTAIN MARVEL!!!! That gave me so much hope

I had always planned to watch Infinity War again before Endgame came out, but I’m glad I did it closer to the release date so I could remember the details. While I’m a huge Marvel fan, I like to look at all films through a critical lens. A year later, I can definitely say that Infinity War holds up. It is genuinely a great film, and pulled off the incredible feat of including the massive roster of superheroes that they did. As much as I want the dusting scene at the end deleted from history... I always thought that in particular was so well done. The way it was executed... the rustling of the trees, no score over it, the quiet stillness, it really made viewers sink into what was happening. I remember being ruined for at least two days straight after that I literally could NOT speak - so I guess they did a good job. For my other fellow Marvel fans, nothing will prepare us for the end. But let’s remember the good times! We are in the endgame now.
