Saw it today...WOW!

Going in no spoilers was awesome!  Pretty much every theory I had was wrong in some way.

Loved almost every single second of it...

The set up of the final battle is one of the most amazing moments in geekdom history...

Let’s give it a week before we start we start dishing out spoilers I can’t wait to talk about it publicly

Or set up a separate spoiler thread.

A friend of mine set up a private Facebook group just to talk Endgame spoilers.  I just saw it this morning and I was floored at how so many storylines came together.

Saw it last Friday and absolutely loved it. Near or at the top of all MCU movies, and when you consider how well it ties together this whole first batch of movies, maybe one of the best I've seen.  Going again this weekend, and will drop back when we can get into the details of things. So many goosebump inducing moments.

We pulled the kids out of school early on Friday to catch Endgame and it did not disappoint.  I was surprised at how quickly the story moved - it did not feel at all like 3 hours of film.  While I would have liked more focus on certain characters, I thought they did an amazing job giving almost all the heroes a little meaningful screen time.  There were lots of plot twists that I did not see coming and not really a dull moment that I can recall.  I was surprised at how emotional the movie was for me and my kids.  I cannot wait to see it again!
Climbed a mountain & never came back. I will not quit & I always fight back 
From this moment for all my life. What could I say? Was born to be this way. And what could I say?  Just livin' for today

Saw it twice over the weekend, and I think it was even better the second time. I normally despise audiences cheering and clapping at movies, but it really worked out well during the climax. So many great callbacks to the other movies, and a great way to close out Phase 3.

There's one scene I can't stop laughing at because it was clearly made to piss off Twitter.

Agreed, and I loved it.

That was masterful trolling on the part of the Russo brothers.

So I wonder if this thing will win Best Picture at the Oscars similar to the way Return of the King did being more for the entire series than for the last film.

Yep, the women. Just imagining the rage some people felt while watching that makes me chuckle

I just saw Endgame yesterday and I had the same reaction. That was a big FU to all of the misogynistic ******** out there in the world. I loved the scene.

I did find the movie to be profoundly sad as for me there were many tear inducing moments.

The real funny part about that to me was they have that shot and the Captain Marvel just turns into a comet and flys off without them.
