Thinking Out Loud: Avengers: Endgame

So I went and saw Avengers: Endgame for a 3rd time and I figured I would bring back one of my favorite articles to write. Thinking Out Loud, I go to the movies and see the film and keep running notes throughout the entire film. It’s rather fun.

Warning, SPOILERS ARE AHEAD!!!!! So only read if you want to laugh, cry, and enjoy a wonderful ride through this masterpiece of a film.

Who does put Mayo on hot dogs???

Hits you right in the gut, right out the gate with Hawkeye’s family being gone. 

Football with paper, those were the good ol days when I was school. 

HA they said Blue Meanie.

Captain Mehvel to save the day. (still not sure if I really like her or not)

Pepper and tony reunited and about to get freaky.

I thought you were a build a bear might be the funniest thing ever. 

Avengers not the Pre-Vengers…. hilarious!!!!!!!

Thanos has a retirement plan. This literally has a batch of one liners to start the reunited phase of this movie. 

Insert Thor “I like this one” in front of Captain Mehvel. (side note: I did like this interaction)

When they realized Thanos doesn’t have the stones anymore is the single greatest FU moments in movie history.

Also, Thanos being a sympathetic figure after all he had done. I think one of the better set of writing in a movie. Unreal. 

And the midst of a sincere moment, Thor chopped his head off.

AA group led by Steve Rogers, I love it. 

As if anyone would ever miss the Mets, this movie tells lies!!!!!

I love the subtle introduction to the gay character in this movie.

Chris Evans speeches throughout these movies are so good. I’ve love seeing him progress from that very first movie to now. 

Oh Hi, Ant-man 

Captain Marvel with a haircut as bad as her character. 

Rocket: going to get another haircut 💀 💀 💀 💀 💀 💀 💀

We are only about 20 minutes and someone just got up to go the bathroom 

Where in the world is Hawkeye

Oh hi Ant-man again.

Black Widow: I get emails from a raccoon. 

Daddy Iron Man is everything folks. It’s the sweetest thing ever!!!!! 

I do enjoy the loving daddy Tony and flipping to dick head Tony when talking to Ant-Man.

Back to the future isn’t a good movie. Sorry folks. 

“If you don’t talk shop, you can stay for lunch” 

Hulk Banner – Bruce Hulk… whatever you want to call him is easily one of the top 5 favorite things of this movie (don’t fact check me)

Hulk out, dab …… 

Tony Stark doing dishes is funny, do you think Downey Jr does his dishes? I doubt it. 

Little daughter saying shit? Omggggg how adorable. And she conned him into juice pops. 

Daddy Iron-Man is my favorite. 

I LOVE YOU 3000 – in my third time seeing this, it still hurts. 

Fire up the Continuum transfunctioner

The time travel trial run is pretty hilarious.

When Tony pulls up in the car and give Cap that “I was right and I am the man because I figured this all out” is straight money.

Hulk and Rocket movie is something I never knew I needed until this movie. 

FAT THOR. Whoever came up with this is a damn genius… 

Like I said on my podcast (https://anchor.fm/thevaleroverdict/episodes/The-Valero-Verdict—Avengers-Endgame-e3slfq ) number one Halloween costume will be Fat Thor.

They really turned Hawkeye into a bad ass, I really liked his character arc in this because he really is the most boring avenger and made him relevant 

The going back in time and killing Baby Thanos joke is hilarious. 

Hot tube time machine gets mentioned is amazing 

“So back to the future is a bunch of BS” yes Ant-man it is. Also my phone auto-corrects Ant-man to Batman is weird. 

Again Fat Thor during Brainstorming session is amazing 

Cap with another good speech. 

Throwing back to the original avengers when you see how useless Hawkeye and his arrow and Black widow and her little handgun were 

Fat Thor and Rocket scene back in Asgard is so good.

That’s America’s ass 

Is that Axe body spray. Hahaha. 

MATTHEW BERRY. From fantasy guru to Avenger actor. I love it. 

Cap vs Cap fight scene is so money. 

I feel like the cap seeing the little locket he has of his woman is a very MARTHA like moment from BVS

I did enjoy the way they were to incorporate a way to get Thanos into the fight the way they did.

Scene between Thor and his mom is so powerful and such a raw moment. What any of us would do to go back and get five minutes with someone we love.

Eat a salad 

The moment Tony sees his dad, and he’s like a dad in future, and the moment they share with that future understanding that he is having him. Just yes.

And Cap seeing his old flame which inspires future him at the end…. just melt my heart. 

This quote: “No amount of money ever bought a second of time.”

Black widow with her little gun and Hawkeye with his sword, about to take down a ghost. Haha. Not.

This quote as well: “I don’t judge people on their worst mistakes.”

If anyone looks for a pee break, make it happen between Widow/Eye fight over whose going to die.

A baby in the theater currently won’t stop talking or whining.

Josh Brolin is so good as Thanos, his dialogue throughout these last two films have been perfect.

Nothing like future self-killing past self in the future 

Cap getting Thor’s hammer was such a bad ass scene 

Choke slam!!!! Thanos destroying the avengers big 3 like the Spurs did the heat. 

Phone just went off and kid screaming in the middle of this awesome scene

Avengers assemble scene. My goodness folks. One of the coolest schemes I’ve ever witnessed in theaters. You knew what was going to happen and even in my third viewing gave me chills.

Spidey/Iron-Man reuniting…. allllll the feels.

And Star lord seeing Gamora, be still my heart.

WAKANDA FORVER!!!!!!

Captain Mehvel to the rescue. 

I am IRON MEN

Tony, were going to be okay. You can rest now….

PHONE RINGING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MOST POWERFUL SCENE PLUS A BABY SCREAMING NOW.

I love you 3000…. My god those words.

I’m here for a guardian’s movie with Thor in it.

Falcon as the new cap, I’m intrigued

Cap and his woman dancing in the living room, all the feels…. all of them.  !

What a thrilling ride this movie was the 3rd time around.

Thinking Out Loud: Happy Death Day 2U

Welcome to the 3rd edition of Thinking Out Loud where I take running notes throughout the movie.

I went to see Happy Death Day 2U, the first one wasn’t a bad cheeky horror flick. Was a surprise breakout hit when it hit the theaters which always means we are going to get a sequel.

This will be obviously SUPER HEAVY on Spoilers, you can check out my non-spoiler review here: https://letterboxd.com/rickygangster/film/happy-death-day-2u/

Here we go…

Drunk kid in a car hungover, I think we’ve all been there

Oh snap…. we’ve got a bunch of science mumbo jumbo talking 

Science teacher is a tad mean. Why are teachers so negative? Aren’t they supposed to be positive?

I love how in movies you can get text from “Unknown caller” – because that’s literally impossible 

Yep, typical dumb kid going into random rooms. I hear noises I’m running, the opposite way. 

He dead 

ROUND 222222222

Mean ass dog part II

Dude on the skateboard didn’t spill any coffee coming around the corner? Lol k

RECAP OF THE FIRST ONE

LMFAOOOOO A DREAM WITHIN A DREAM

DICK SHOT 😳😳😳😳😳

Dick head teacher is back.

Thank god for movie pass, (I have no clue why I came to see this) 

Oh no, a super serious moment in a super dumb cheesy horror movie. Why? 

Safest place was a basketball game, and they just didn’t know it was baby mask wearing night.

Random horror chase scene where our protagonist runs to no man’s land where there is nobody in sight but the big bad killer.

Why can no one ever be quiet when hiding? 

Clone/Twin and somehow a short guy with a wrench can fend off two security guards, is leaving an option?

Slow motion the random science thing blew up, k….. 

Ohhhhhhh so he sent her back to past now? She gets to relive it all over again? K….

I’m sure the republicans would love the throwing of the global warming paperwork.

Pissed off Global warming folks, outed a gay guy what’s next? 

TOODLES. Who says that?

She’s never seen Back to the Future. Well they were kind of meh anyway, I forgive her. 

Now offending Anne Frank and Helen Keller, Jesus. And now the handicap. 

The Moms still alive? Who didn’t see that coming…. actually I didn’t. 

Wake me up when this shit is over, like it’s not even funny bad. 

Oh snap. The killer is on the loooooseeeee. 

How in the hell did he miss her by like 20 feet with that swing of an axe?

Won’t lie I kind of dug her falling off the cliff.

I literally am thinking about the bomb smoothie I am going to make when I get home. 

Banana, Strawberries and milk…. sounds so good right now. 

Oh yeah, the movie. They are talking about science and her coming back to life and blah blah blah 

Oooooo fun, she gets to killer herself a bunch of times. 

Oh no, she jumped out of the plane in a bikini and landed right in front of the loving couple as she gave us the bird, the audience (of like 9) laugh out loud. 

Just saw that Marriott changed their app to read Bon Voy…. why? 

People in movies always be breaking out of hospitals like it’s nothing. 

So she ultimately decided to stay in the past? Meh.

Closing loops now folks. 

Back to seriously moment again. 

Oh little boy toy is going to save the day. 

So disrespectful, she’s got her shoes on her bed. Even in a hotel. Gross. 

Mommy/Daughter moment. THIS IS A CHEESY HORROR FILM. STOP TRYING TO BE SO SERIOUS. 

Who nicknames their kid TREE? 

So many serious moments. 

As a movie lover, I hope the director/writer/producer make millions off this. 

Omg. Are really really really deep serious moment now? Cheesy cliché after cheesy cliché.

Dick head teacher is back to ruin everything. 

This movie is never going to end. 

People are actually laughing at this dumb movie, oh no they stole the continuum transfunctioner

(Dude Where’s My Car is a classic movie)

I hate the way people use cell phones in movies.

Oh no, the cheating hubby is the killer. Twist the wife was in on it. Boy toy to save the day again!!!!!!!

Omg that was so cheesy, someone shoot me. That killing was absurd and dumb. 

THE END ……. 

The ending the kid says “omg I just shit my pants” and the guy behind me just about fell out his chair laughing.

After credit scene? The FBI has arrived to take all the kids, please let this end. Maybe this is the beginning of the new MIB.

Overall thoughts:

*1/2 out *****

I gave this movie a half of a star, well because someone had to make the movie and I respect that.

I am sure there are going to be people out there that like this movie, and good for them. But I am not one of those said people. 

Horror movies should never take themselves super serious, and this movie tried way too hard. I don’t think the movie even understood what it was trying to be. One minute you had her being serious with her Mom and the next you are making awful jokes about Helen Keller, like do one or the other, not both.

Obviously we weren’t going to get amazing acting, we were going to get a cheesy horror flick with campy ideas with a couple of laughs and so cool killing. 
I don’t think any of that happened once.
This movie was not my cup of tea.
