Saw it at the 2215 showing, only tickets left I could get. By the time the end credits were over it was 0245. So just a heads up if you see it to reserve a 3 hour time slot at least.

Anyway, I did like the movie, there were just a few things that were disappointing to me, but the rest of the good things outweighed what I would call my own personal nitpicks. The movie does make you think, wow, it has been 12 years already since "Iron Man " kicked off this whole Odyssey, and my what a 12 years it has been! There were several things that happened in the movie that I did not expect to happen; nor happen when it did. It really left me wondering, "Oh, no! What's going to happen next.?" The three hours went by quickly for me because I was eager to see what would happen next.

But yes it has been a wild 12-year ride and it all has certainly culminated in "Avengers: Endgame." I enjoyed it overall, all the way down to the credits.

I'll be seeing it next weekend. I'll wait for the crazy crowds and traffic to die down a bit so there's no way I'll see it on opening weekend.

Yup! That's why I will highly limit my social media browsing until next weekend!

All I will say, because I wouldn’t want to spoil this experience for anyone, is that it was AWESOME and did not disappoint. Cheering and crying in the theater...although I find that a little weird.
Didn’t stay through credits, so I don’t know if there was the usual treatment.

There wasnt any post credits, there was only the hammering of tony stark making his first armor, a lot people making stupid theories around it, but it was just a nod to the first movie and a nice homage to the beginning of the mcu or maybe the forging of the new mcu going forward.
the middle credits was a nice recolection of the mcu movies and a tribute for the original 6 avengers /actors though.

Yes, I really liked the original actor homage. And not having an after credit scene at the end added to the bittersweet sign that it was the end of the 12 year ride.

Some things I liked about seeing it in the theatre

When Spider-Man shows up and Tony is so happy and they hug, the audience applauded. They also applauded when Cap said "Hail Hydra" and got the sceptre. They also did with Stan Lee's cameo, and also when Cap wielded Mjolnir.



It's moments like that that keep me going to the theatre to see movies. That would never have happened at home

in mine the biggest crowd moments was when
cap got the mjolnir, on your left and when the avengers A team (the women) formed,
i could feel the moisture in the air from all the wet panties in that moment
i was disapointd in the battle cry though, after 11 years of waiting i wanted a braveheart avengers assemble! not a freaking whisper



i'm not crying, you are !!


Also the old song they picked for the ending couldnt be more fitting, they honestly deserve a oscar nomination for this.

While the industry always expected Endgame‘s to be a stratospheric launch, last week folks were cautious about predicting a $1B global opening (the long runtime, China’s lack of days off during the debut, etc). Given the incredible trajectory the 22nd MCU pic has been on this weekend — and a lack of down-drag from the extra runtime coupled with round-the-clock screenings in many markets — sources now see Endgame reaching even higher, to a $1.1B worldwide take, and, yes, even nearing $1.2B.

Of that, this reckoning with Thanos is now looking to reach well into the $800Ms overseas.

Saw it on opening weekend (Sunday morn at 10am - the showing was packed).

In a nutshell:

1.> It's a movie of "Epic Scope"
2.> It was highly Entertaining
3.> *Don't* overthink it, or it will completely override points 1 & 2... You *have* been warned... attack

I saw it with a good friend of mine, who I've watched almost every Marvel movie with (he's the hardcore Comic book guy - Canon *matters*)

That said, if you decide to ignore that warning -- consider:

* Of the millions of scenarios Dr. Strange "saw" with *only* ONE winning outcome -- distilling Endgame down in that context was ... really? That was it???
* Considering Thanos almost lost in the preceding movie - WITH the stones -- what he can DO in Endgame is ... a bit OP
* WHO can handle Infinity Stones without dying??? When did that change, exactly?
* What, exactly did they need Captain Marvel for anyway?
* Movies with hand-waving - "we''ll just change the timeline and that will solve everything" plot devices are A> Grossly overused, and B> Seriously disappointing (if not outright irritating)
* .... and that covers only the *glaring* "Jump the Shark" moments... There were SO many more....


Heeding the warning, I truly enjoyed it - it was Epic, Entertaining, and drew the series to closure -- *Thinking* about HOW that was done was .... Yeah, Bad... Just Don't Go There... yep


Cheers,
4 ~S!~

Even though you aren’t being terribly specific, your post borders on spoilers. I’d at least put your bullet points in a spoiler tag.

I saw it yesterday. IMAX 3D. Enjoyed it, for the most part, had some serious problems with certain other major aspects. Looking forward to bouncing them off the rest of you when it can be done openly, without fear of spoiling anything.


SALUTE TO ALL!

After watching endgame it reminded me of my high school days when I had just exited the movie theater after watching the opening of return of the Jedi at the Chinese theater in Hollywood. Ever since I left high school, I never paid to see the same movie twice because I never had the urge, but this movie will be the exception.

We went on an early morning matinee with about 8 people in the theater.

It blowed up real good once it got to the blowing up parts.

And I am now sexier than Thor.




My "guffaw" moment was when they did the "girl power" pose with all the female characters in one frame.

And had the good sense to have the moth antenna girl standing there very uncomfortably. smile



And now we can get back to Agents of SHIELD. #ImmortalCoulsonFTW
