I was half-expecting Voltron, but thought, "No, they'd never be able to get permission for that." Frikkin' *****, though? It's kinda like how Ghostbusters used, The Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man.

Okay, SO much to process, the twists the turns, THAT ending but the one that got biggest audience reaction? Just where the Soul Stone has been and who has it.

Depends on if you find pure and utter heartbreak good. I will say that it blows Black Panther out of the water and may be in the Top 3 Best Marvel Films.

IDK about "blowing Black Panther out of the Water," because BP was hella good, but Infinity War is totally worth the hype and for the love of all that is good, go see it before it gets spoiled for you. Then maybe consider going back and seeing it again, because I know I missed SEVERAL lines of dialogue while the crowd was laughing. Lot of traditional Marvel one-liners, and sometimes they get in the way. There is ONE post credit scene, it's at the very end, so sit through those credits (after 18 MOVIES you shouldn't have to tell people this, but considering how many people walked out last night, apparently you still do).

I think that's just about all I can say without spoiling anything, but if you've ever enjoyed a Marvel movie before, you will enjoy this one. AND be left heartbroken. That's all I'll say.

You had ONE job, "MacGyver": Cast Richard Dean Anderson as Mac's dad.

To be fair, if I were Richard Dean Anderson, I wouldn't want anything to do with the crappy New MacGyver either.

Saw Infinity War and liked it better than I expected

Spoilers Follow:








They did a surprisingly good job of integrating all those characters.  The only exception IMHGO was the early part of the Battle of Wakanda where it was hard to tell who was fighting who.  This changed for the better with the appearance of Thor and his new weapon.

My sister, who saw it with me, thought Strange screwed up by giving the Time stone up to save Stark but I think it goes back to his saying that there's only one path to defeating Thanos and I'm guessing that Strak will be crucial to that.

Hulk is, I'm guessing having performance anxiety after Thanos not only beat him but was positively toying with him.

Gotham ended it's 4th season with a HELL of a lot going on.
- Ra's and Jeremiah blew up the bridges into Gotham, creating a No Man's Land where Marshall Law was introduced.
- Selina is paralyzed (hinting that she may become Oracle instead of Catwoman)
- Ra's was killed
- Barbara is now full anti-men and has formed the Gotham City Sirens, who want to kill all men.
- Lee and Riddler killed each other, only for Penguin to demand Hugo Strange revive them.
- Butch was brought back to life only to be murdered by Penguin to punish Tabitha for killing his mother.
- Man-Bat, Mother, and Orphan were introduced.
- Jeremiah (Can't Call Him Joker) escaped and is on the run from a pissed off Bruce Wayne
- A Proto-Bat Signal was introduced.

I can't believe we have to wait til 2019!

Since, Marshall Law, isn't the name of a character, I believe you mean, Martial Law.
