Okay, I just want to take a moment to say: SPOILERS, SPOILERS, SPOILERS!!!!
If you have not seen the new, Avengers: Infinity War movie, please do not read. I will not be responsible for any spoilers you may read. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!! This is just kind of a big rant. How I am mourning the loss of my favorite character.
Now, I just need to take a minute, to talk about my love for this franchise. My husband has always been a fan. We have this kind of pact. If there’s a movie I/he doesn’t want to see, then the other person gets to pick the next movie. For the first few movies, these were his movies and not mine. Then, Thor came about and it quickly became OUR movies. Oh, how I loved Thor and mostly, LOKI! I am a huge Loki fan. He has been one of my favorite characters.
The God of mischief, has been so much fun. I’ve been constantly rooting for him and saying, he will change, he will do right, he will make the good choice and he will choose his brother over himself. He’s just felt unloved, it’s his driving force. I’ve been saying he would do the right thing, since day one! He’s definitely made me sweat it out but I always believed. Then Thor 3 came out and you get to see how much he has grown as a character. I loved when he shows up to save the day and then takes all the glory. Yet, he’s still true to his mischievous nature. Telling the rebellion that they need a leader. True Loki form, wanting to rule and be in control. Yet, he does show up and he fights alongside his brother. It made me so happy!
So, Loki has been my favorite but then I cannot choose who is my second favorite. I love ALL of these characters. From Iron Man to Black Panther. I LOVED Black Panther’s standalone movie too. They have all wormed their ways into my heart and I cannot imagine losing any of them. I say, Thor is my second favorite! Then I remember that I also love Black Panther. Then as soon as I declare he is, I remember that I love Peter/Spiderman. On and on it goes… so you see.. I just love them all.
My husband and I both knew to go in expecting deaths. There’s no way, they all get out of this. I was so nervous and I felt like I was going to throw up as the movie started.
Five minutes in and BANG! First, it’s Heimdall! Then… I’m completely devastated. NOT. MY. LOKI. (insert 50 crying emojis here) I couldn’t believe it. Somehow, I’m hoping that there’s a way he isn’t dead but deep down, I know. It was an amazing end to his story arc. He definitely goes out noble and on a high. It’s what Loki deserves BUT couldn’t they have waited like an hour or so?! Was it so hard to give me some more of Loki in this super long movie? Ugh. It made me just want to walk out.
I also want to mention that another heart shattering moment is when Thanos is getting the soul stone. Gamora 😦 Ugh. it was just so sad. I knew it was coming but it didn’t make it hurt any less. The intensity was off the charts.
The movie was really good. They did a great job with all the characters. There’s all these groups but somehow working together. It was done really well. This was the most intense movie I’ve ever been a part of. I think it’s because there’s 10 years of these characters and you are just terrified of who you will lose. There’s some really heartbreaking moments but they did an amazing job with the comedy relief. It was much needed and came in subtle ways that didn’t take away from the intense moments. I can’t wait for the next installment. I’m sure it will be another intense ride because I know that not all these characters will make it out. One last thing, WAKANDA FOREVER!
