    Not everything needs to either be “deep” or “dumb”. I didn’t expect to quote this movie considering how much I didn’t really care for it on first impression, but “you can’t lump everything into two categories”. Yeah, I understood the movie, but I just couldn’t really get into it, which was a little unexpected because I typically like movies like this. Do I, though?

But not during the part where, y’know, a man’s torso rips open and tears someone’s arms off.

    Absolutely a great ending to this certain saga of the MCU. The first two acts were great and I honestly was so intrigued by everything going on. Call me a fanboy, call me whatever you want, but nobody can deny how emotionally satisfying and well done the entire film was. On first viewing, I did not have the reaction I expected at all. I was so baffled by everything going on on the screen that I couldn't focus due solely…
