I have questions:

 
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

If you have questions? They don't matter

If you feel they missed bits, it's not important

If you wanted a movie of type A, well they made one of types B through Z

All that really matters is the sheer audacity of it all. Where it fails its only because sheer genius and bravado were never going to be 100% enough. And yet, they are.

It may be the single densest piece of filmmaking in cinema history. It felt like having a dozen movies sluiced through your mind simultaneously.

I must admit I’m a little sad I can’t join the party on this one.

I’ve seen a grand total of 4 MCU movies, and one of them was Incredible Hulk.

This. Absolutely this. But it is one that you'll get more from the more Marvel films you've seen.

It'll be much easier if you just comply.

My only minor gripe is it continues the same problem all superhero flics have of keeping each hero's powers relative. One minute Cap is struggling to overcome three normal people the next he's smacking Thanos down hard. One minute Capt. Marvel is destroying a whole spaceship the next she's taking a kicking. Its really only a minor gripe but it crosses each and every movie and also plagues the DCU as well.

They squeezed that in under the radar. Chris Hemsworth is god of thunder AND comedy!

Saw it last night and, quite honestly, I think they did a damn good job all things considered. I got Marvel burnout around the second Guardians movie, but Ragnarok and the second Ant Man movie sort of rekindled my interest in this whole mess just in time for the thrilling conclusion.

My wife and I saw it Thursday evening. HOLY MOTHER SQUEAKING SPONGE BALLS!!!!!! How was that a 3+ hour movie? Ok, the clock says so, but - without making it seem like everything was pushed too fast - the story ran smoothly and evenly, without anything dragging or being slurred over.

I have to see it two or three more times before I feel I actually “saw” all of it, and I need to watch a number of the other movies (some of them again) to tease out who everyone was and how they factored into the overall story. But wow. Just wow.

Late as usual, I saw it yesterday. This was very very good - not only because it was good in itself, but because it stuck the landing of a series, which is so very hard to do. Can't wait to until I can see it again somewhere.

 
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

Super late! Finally saw it Saturday.

They wrapped up a 22-movie, 11-year saga in three hours including...what...nine characters important enough to get their own movies and about 10 or 20 more sub characters? All in a 3 hour movie? That was ACTUALLY SATISFYING?

Someone call GoT Season 8.

I took their explanations of time travel as more of an Austin Powers-style "don't worry about it." But maybe there's more to it.

So many awesome moments. This is one I'll have to rewatch once or twice to catch everything.
- Original Cap "I could do this all day," new Cap *rolls eyes*
- Tony loving "the simple life" and being a dad. "What's...new...in...compost?"
- "I don't even know who you are" "You will."
- GIRL POWER MOMENT
- When all the lasers start aiming at the clouds
- Cap wielding Mjolnir..."I knew it!!"
