Thoughts And Questions I Had After Watching ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Some SPOILER filled thoughts and questions I’ve had since I first saw ‘Avengers: Infinity War’. If you still haven’t seen the biggest movie of the year, even with the release of its digital version, you’ve got yourself to blame. Sorry. ๐Ÿค—.

I never thought Heimdal would be the first to die. I didn’t even think Loki would die in the first act. Oh well, someone’s got to die first for others to follow.

I wonder if Pepper was among Thanos’ snap casualty? If so, it means there’s no more wedding, which means we’re left with a madder Tony. Which brings us to:

What if by the time we return to the MCU everyone who didn’t fade away from existence starts to forget those who did? That’ll be very very very scary.

I can only imagine what was in Wanda’s mind before Team Cap’s arrival, when she defended Vision, without much success, from Proxima Midnight and Corvius Glave.

That moment Gamora stabbed Thanos in the gut was a shocker. I was like… ‘Is that it? Is this the villain we deserve after all these years of build up?’ Thankfully, it was just the power of the reality stone at work. ๐Ÿ˜.

Imagine you were Gamora. After all these years, would you have warmed up to Thanos or still resent him for killing your people?

Is it just me or is Star Lord and Gamora’s love not-so-believable?

Star Lord is quite silly; after foiling his teammates’ plan to defeat Thanks he still asked if they lost. What a drunk fellow!

What kind of destiny causes one to kill his own daughter? ๐Ÿ˜ข

Tony and Strange’s subtle animosity is funny.

The Avengers vs. The Guardians brief scuffle on Titan was a very funny one. The easily silly line ‘Why is Gamora?’ rendered by Drax lends credence to the fact that he might just be the silliest character in all of the MCU. 

Do you think Drax can ever be sensible? ๐Ÿ˜‚

Do you think Loki is truly dead?

Who do you think is the man – Thor or Star Lord? 
Are you a fan of Vision and Wanda’s romance?

Where was Thor all the while Thanos decimated the rest of the Avengers on Wakanda? He just had to wait for another triumphant entrance.

Do you remember the names of the children of Thanos and the order with which they died?

The battle at Wakanda should be termed ‘The World’s Most Orgasmic Battle’ and the chant Yibambe ‘The Most Orgasmic Chant’. ๐Ÿ˜.

It isn’t coincidence all the founding members of The Avengers survived Thanos’ onslaught.

Rinzy Reviews ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ (2018)

Rinzy Ratings: 4/5

I think it’s safe to assume everyone is intrigued by the beauty of the dinosaurs, the gigantic beasts that roamed the earth long before we arrived. That, I believe, has been the selling point of the Jurassic Park movies. And having worked for as long as it has, it’s time the powers that be look for something other than mind boggling amazement to act as the franchise selling point. That being said, I believe Fallen Kingdom is an entertaining sequel.

Owen Grady (Pratt) and Clarie Dearing (Howard) set out on a mission, by Eli Mills (Spall), to save the dinosaurs from the soon-to-be destroyed island, which they soon discover to be a ruse, as Eli only needed them to get Blue to him to further his black market agenda.

If you thought the T-Rex was terrifying, wait till you meet the Indoraptor. Eli’s latest toy created by foremost devilish scientist in the Jurassic universe, Dr. Henry Wu (Wong). I don’t know about you, but I think it’s high time this scientist bites the dust. He’s caused too much damaged already. 

It’d be unfair of me to not talk about the breakout star of this movie. Give it up for Maisie Lockwood (Sermon). The smart girl was a part of what made the movie so enjoyable, especially in the final act.

As I said earlier, Fallen Kingdom is an action-packed, intense, funny, captivating movie from start to finish. The powers that be found a way to rejuvenate a cliche idea and ignite hope for the conclusion of a seemingly senile franchise. Meaning that, at the end of Fallen Kingdom, we’re naturally left wanting more, which, if you ask me, is a win for any movie.

Rinzy Reviews ‘Antman And The Wasp’ (2018)

Release Date: July 6, 2018.

Budget/ Box Office: 

Starring: Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lily, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Lawrence Fishburne, Hannah John-Kamen, etc.

Rinzy’s Rating: 4/5

Fun and light-hearted, Antman and the Wasp is the perfect follow up to Avengers: Infinity War and all the heartbreak Thanos brought along with his children.

Following the events of Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang (Rudd) had been placed under house arrest for two years. With just three days to the end of his sentence, what could go wrong?

I’m just going to state how pissed I am that Scott and Hope (Lily) we’re written to end up as a romantic couple. Can’t we have a movie where the lead male and female doesn’t have to catch feelings for each other? The sterotype is sickening. The signs have been there since the first Antman movie, but I’ll still prefer them to not be romantically involved.

Every hero is only as good as the villain he/she has to battle and surmount. But what happens when you’ve got two headlining heroes? You’ll need a villain twice as capable. Does Antman and the Wasp deliver on this? No, it doesn’t. Though the ability and backstory of Ava/Ghost (John-Kamen) is impressive, the writing of the character is lacklustre and easily forgettable. Nothing else asides her costume is memorable. 

On a plus side, the humour of this movie was decent. I wasn’t rolling over the floor, laughing my ass out, but I had a smirk on my face for the better of it; like when the regulator on Scott’s new suit caused him to alternate between weird body sizes; the multiple scenes where the mobile lab was being chased all over town; and the scene were Scott’s mind was taken over by Janet were among those that stood out for me.

The action scenes, too, were good.

For Marvel’s first female title character, Evangeline Lily’s The Wasp is pretty good. Fierce and intimidating as she was in the first Antman movie, she ones again proves she’s capable of being the boss of her own self, and does it wonderfully well having to team up with Scott Lang. Her action scenes were easily the bestin the movie, especially those against Ghost. I sincerely hope she somehow gets featured in next year’s Avengers 4. 

Before I round up, I mustn’t fail to talk about Michael Douglas (Hank Pym) and Michelle Pfeiffer (Janet Van Dyne), and how hot they both are in their advanced ages. I think of just how much sex appeal they had in their earlier years… Basic Instincts and Batman Returns easily come to mind. I know we’ll see more of them in the MCU. Marvel didn’t spend two movies introducing us to the quantum realm just to let it take a back seat when we need it the most. Since time works differently in that realm, as said by Janet Van Dyne, I believe it’s the answer to undoing the great damage Thanos caused with the snap of his finger.

โ€‹’The Originals’ Series Finale

It’s been eight years since the Mikelsons first popped up in our lives and five years since they’ve headlined their own show. Like all things, whatever has a beginning must also have an end; and the end is here for The Originals.
The number one big bad family in all of fiction TV bows out with a literal poof.

Before the series finale aired, I ran a poll asking people if they thought Klaus was going to survive the episode. Surprisingly, many thought he would. It was obvious they haven’t been paying attention to Julie Plec’s works. Not only did we say a permanent goodbye to Klaus, we also did same to Elijah. Shocker.

The love Elijah has for his younger brother arguably dwarves that many romantic couple have for each other. I never saw his sacrifice coming, and, to be honest, it didn’t really make much sense to me. I mean, why choose to die with your brother when you’ve got his daughter to take care of in his absence?

On a slightly lighter side, Rebecca hasn’t yet outgrown her obsession with turning human, which is disappointing, if you ask me. Oh well, she’ll soon be dead, and the world will have one less original vampire to deal with.

Freya asking Vincent to father her and Keelin’s hold was funny and silly, as the build up to that particular scene can best be described as shallow.

The earlier seasons of ‘The Orignals’ were some of the best; Davina and the harvest girls, Aunt Dahlia, Mikel, Sophie Devereux, Celeste, Lucius, etc. It’s quite funny that the boring fourth season, which introduced The Hollow provided the overaching storyline that ended the show. It was fun while it lasted, and I’m ready to move on. I won’t be watching ‘Legacies’ though.
