I Love This Movie 3000: 135 Thoughts I Had Watching ‘Avengers: Endgame’ for the First Time

WELL FOLKS WE MADE IT.

Soarin’ into End Game.

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?! I sure can’t. 22 movies have led us to THIS.

(No idea what I’m talking about? I’m watching all of the Marvel movies for the very first time and sharing my thoughts. Yes I know I am 12 years late.)

I realize this was most of you arriving at Endgame

…and honestly, I don’t know how you did it! I started this journey a month ago, and literally watched Infinity War two days prior to Endgame. But still, I am SO EXCITED and a little scared. Mostly anxious to see how (if) we bring back our long lost heroes!! I don’t think my heart can take it if we can’t.

Are you ready? Are you excited? (Are you like…yea Molly, we’ve been here already?) THEN LET’S DO IT.

`107.  Nothing against Clint, but I feel much better with Black Panther being in charge of the glove.

©Marvel

108. This is like the most vital game of “keep away.”

109. She’s not my fave, but DANG I gotta respect Scarlet Witch. She’s holding her own against Thanos pretty impressively.

110. Peter Parker always trying to introduce himself in battle is the cutest thing ever.

111. GROOT AND ROCKET TOGETHER AGAIN!!!!

112. CAP. clap. TAIN. clap. MARVEL!!!!!

114. Captain Marvel is INSANE. Like, Thanos needed a stone to punch her effectively.

115. Strange and Stark are exchanging knowing looks and gestures. And I feel like I KNOW what Strange means by holding up one finger — but I don’t want to know.

116. I AM IRON MAN.

©Marvel

117. I’m actually concerned.

118. Thanos, Imma let you finish but, Voldemort had the best supervillain fade to dust finish of all time.

119.  “Mr. Stark.” Peter is ripping my heart out for the second film.

©Marvel

120. PEPPS. “You can rest now.” Because she asked if he could rest earlier. Wow my heart continues to be shattered.

121. I am so happy and so sad all together.

122. “I hope if you play this back…it’s in celebration” AS THEY SHOW BLACK PANTHER. I know they didn’t know what they were doing at the time but OH MY GOD.

123. Proof that Tony Stark has a heart.

124. NICK. FURY. This would be such a fun party if it wasn’t the most depressing funeral ever.

125. Clint and Wanda. Part of a club no one ever wants to be in.

©Marvel

126. *cheeseburgers* So happy to see Happy, but not under these circumstances.

127. Queen Valkyrie. I love that.

128. 10/10 would watch a Guardians + Thor spin off.

129. Good luck Cap.

130. OLD MAN CAP!!!! He looks like Joe Biden.

131. Oh no. I know what this means.

©Marvel

132. Looks good on you Falcon.

133. HE GOT HIS DANCE.

134. These credits are AWESOME. I am just clapping for each person.

135. NO END CREDIT SCENE???

©Marvel

WHAT. A. PAYOFF. I mean NO one plays the long game like Marvel, but wow, was it worth it.

When Cap picked up the hammer or Sam said “on your left” and everyone showed up, I lost my mind sitting alone on my couch. I can only imagine what that was like in theaters. (Actually, thanks to this awesome video from Scott Gustin, I don’t have to completely imagine:)

This movie was excellent — specifically the last hour. It was heartbreaking to say goodbye to Tony, but the action was unreal and the battle was perfect. I honestly think everyone showing up with the portals is one of my favorite scenes in a movie EVER.

That said, I think I liked Infinity War just the tiniest bit more. Even though it ended in despair, I liked that the whole gang was together for the majority of the film. Don’t get me wrong — I love the OG Avengers (who mostly made up this film), but I also adore T’Challa, the Guardians, Sam, Bucky….

I understand why people love this movie so much now. It was well worth the wait to see the Avengers Assemble. I loved this movie 3000.

On a scale of 1 to 10, with a 1 being Thanos and a 10 being Peggy and Steve dancing, I award Avengers: Endgame a 9.8!

  1. It was amazing seeing it in theaters. Watching those clips still almost moves me to tears. It certainly reminds me of an easier time. Damn COVID.

  2. I am a Marvel fan and am very familiar with all the movies you’ve been watching. I have to say that it has been SO much fun reading your reviews of/reactions to them. So entertaining!! It’s like going on Soarin’ or FoP with someone who hasn’t been on it before – you get to enjoy it from a fresh new perspective. And yes, Endgame was awesome in the theater.

  3. So glad you loved it! Okay now I can ask, weren’t you disappointed that in the scene at the end with Valkyrie and Thor when he said, “Asgard already has a king” that Valkyrie at that moment didn’t turn into Loki? For me that would have been the best ending EVER! I was sooo let down because if he just finished that sentence with, “Brother”, I could have just gone ahead and died. Complete missed opportunity there IMO. Imagine the theater screams if THAT happened!

    1. I never even considered that…and now the fact that it didn’t happen will always make me sad.

      Those crowd reactions were spot on to what I was in opening night. After a year of waiting we needed a release. The only louder opening night nerdly cheer I was ever in was when the new Enterprise showed up at the end of Star Trek IV, and that wasn’t as long, or surrounded by multiple other equal cheers.
