Goosebumps still have not left my arms and I left the movie a few days ago. That’s how great AVENGERS – INFINITY WAR is. I was so excited for this movie, that I thought my heart was going to thump out of my chest before the film even started. IT WAS INCREDIBLE!!! Everything about this movie was EPIC! The characters, the story, the directing, the acting, the visual effects…all beyond what I could have imagined. My eyes never left the screen. My butt never left the edge of the seat. I don’t think I blinked the entire movie and it’s 2 hours and 29 minutes long (2 hours and 45 minutes after you include all the credits and the one post credit scene) – (#MyBladderHatesMe). The Russo Brothers did it again. They are the perfect fit for directing this movie and all other future Marvel “ensemble” films. They proved themselves first with CAPTAIN AMERICA – WINTER SOLDIER. They underlined themselves with CAPTAIN AMERICA – CIVIL WAR. And now they put their exclamation mark behind themselves with AVENGERS – INFINITY WAR!!! Every part of the story flowed into the next seamlessly and each amazing Marvel character got their “time in the sun”. This movie is completely slammed with tons of vivacious (I wanted to use that word…lol) characters, but the Russo brothers did not focus too long or too short on any of them. All egos were checked at the door, which made the story all the more enjoyable. As far as our villain Thanos and his final emergence as a main character and not a post credit scene or evil doer in a floating chair, I was not left disappointed. His presence is demanding on screen and is the perfect fit for this movie. I’m not going to lie, the first time we really saw him on screen was in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY and I really was not that impressed, but I take it back now. He is highly emotional and very powerful (those descriptions can be taken other ways too…LOL). If you couldn’t tell by now, I definitely recommend you see AVENGERS – INFINITY WAR in the theaters. I absolutely loved it and can’t wait to go see it again and again. Until next time, thanks for reading.
PS – There is only one post credit scene – MAKE SURE YOU STICK AROUND FOR IT BECAUSE IT’S WORTH IT. Goosebumps still. LOL.

As we bump into the mighty Thanos (Josh Brolin), it seems he has his heart and mind are set on taking over the Universe once and for all…and it seems that Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), and his former compadres, and a few new friends to this soiree too, are about to face their most epic battle to save us all from certain annihilation…
I give AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR a rating of ABSOLUTLEY MUST SEE ON THE BIG SCREEN and NO OTHER WAY!!!
As most of you already know, I was not a comic book loving individual growing up. But, like I have mentioned before too, when it comes to MARVEL MOVIES, not knowing all the back stories of the comics, makes me a clean slate to the direction that any of these storylines is headed! And I totally believe this was a positive as I viewed AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR, as the perfectly intertwining storylines throughout this absolutely fabulous film, are as seamlessly poetic, as they are prophetic, all at the same time. All of our favorite Avengers are back, and some pretty incredible new characters along the way too, allowing for the MARVEL UNIVERSE to keep going, and going, and going, for as long as the studio wants it to. I was also totally blown away by the way that it felt like this film was about an hour long, when in actuality it is almost 2 and ½, and talk about a gasping/draw dropping ending…well, you will have to definitely head out to a theater near you this weekend, so you can see every inch of this EPIC MASTERPIECE yourself. I mean, I’m trying very hard not to give you any spoilers, because if I did, it would be a tragedy, as AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR is one of those incredible films that you definitely have to view every inch of all on your own…so you can cherish the experience yourself…So, get those tickets secured to catch it this weekend, so that no one can spoil any of its brilliance for you come Monday morning, when everyone in the office starts talking and sharing everything that they absolutely loved about this film…and don’t forget to stay for the closing scene past the credits…it too will absolutely blow you away…
