My Experience Watching ‘Avengers: Infinity War

Oh my goodness everybody, Avengers: Infinity War is no joke! I’ve watched all of the Marvel movies and this is undoubtedly not only the best one but truly the entire culmination of the last eighteen movies. I sat in that movie theater waiting in silent anguish for the movie to start after all of the many trailers and once it did it latched on and didn’t let go literally from beginning to end. The audience was incredible. There were many laugh-out-loud (and silently funny) moments that had the audience in stitches. There were some fantastic character moments that just had the audience cheering with excitement. And then there were some legitimately heartbreaking moments that caused quite a bit of sniffling in the theater. When I walked out of that movie after its two hour and thirty-two minute long run I was stunned. I felt like a young woman who had just seen the most amazing Marvel superhero movie that she had ever seen and couldn’t believe how shocking the film’s ending was…because that’s exactly what I was. My feet were lead, my eyebrows were furrowed in stunned confusion, and my mind was racing in an utter “WHAT JUST HAPPENED?!”

As I was walking out of that movie theater I saw this super awesome display for Solo: A Star Wars Story and I just had to take a picture with it.

Yeah. It’s just me sitting in the Millennium Falcon cockpit with my Star Wars buddies. 🙂

Isn’t that an awesome display?! I’ve seen some cool displays in my time but this one takes the cake. Just imagining myself sitting in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon was an awesome experience. So then after that I went to find the Infinity War display so I can take a new movie photo and when I did I was so excited.

This is the look of someone who just came out of Avengers: Infinity War. Yeah, it was a ride.

That expression on my face isn’t disappointment. It’s the face of someone who doesn’t know what just happened. I’m telling you, the end of Infinity War is so unexpected and out of this world that usually an audience roars with applause at the end of a really good movie but this audience was mostly silent with the occasional murmur. All of us were legitimately stunned at what had just transpired.

All in all, Avengers: Infinity War will be a movie experience that I will undoubtedly remember for quite a while and it’s given Avengers 4 a very high bar to try to surpass.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a magical day.

What’s Next For Poe?

The Last Jedi was and wasn’t the best film for Poe Dameron. In The Force Awakens Poe was the greatest pilot ever! He was so cool and I was SO happy that J.J Abrams didn’t kill him off like he originally was planning to because he was such an awesome character that it would’ve been sad to see him go. Rian Johnson took this incredible character that I loved so much and made a story for him for the better…and the worse. He elevated the character by evolving him from a simple pilot to a wise leader but he also might’ve hurt Poe by making him a little too brash and confused at times. Star Wars viewers started to dislike the character and now Poe has gone from a fan favorite to a slight annoyance of the trilogy. But what’s next for this charming king of the skies? Well. that’s what this post is about. Enjoy!

Poe Is Now A Recognized Leader of the Resistance but What New Obstacles Could He Face?

Poe went from a Resistance hero to a demoted disappointment and then back around to a trusted leader but was The Last Jedi his biggest test or is his toughest obstacle still to come? I think it’s safe to say that when we see the delightful Poe again he’ll be a general of the Resistance considering how much of a leader he was by the end of The Last Jedi but if it’s a substantial time gap what will he have to face? What will the last leg of his journey present to the trilogy as a whole? Well, I think a side of him that we have never seen before is him protecting someone that he truly loves.

Even though he obviously loves Leia as a surrogate mother and he cares deeply about his friends he’s always thought more of himself than others. That’s why he disobeyed Leia when she called off the attack on the Dreadnaught. That’s why he tried to concoct a plan to save the Resistance…himself, and Leia stunned him for his mutinous actions. He’s always been a little self-centered, it’s part of his endearing charm, but it can make him, in the eyes of others, a little conceited. But now that Poe has a level head and is making decisions more rationally what would happen to him if he had to confront the reality of someone he romantically loves on the front lines of the Resistance? He would undoubtedly want to keep that person safe and that could lead him back to that selfish personality that haunted him so badly in The Last Jedi. Would he make a possible war ending decision if it meant that his loved one could potentially be killed or would he jeopardize the Resistance to save the life of someone he loves?

These are obstacles that he hasn’t been faced with and could serve as a very emotional final chapter that could end the trilogy with a glorious triumph or a resounding heartbreak. This is the storyline that I would give Poe considering that Rian Johnson already provided him a worthy development in The Last Jedi and I think J.J Abrams should just build on that evolution.

I thank you for reading this fascinating theory that I had so much fun writing and I hope you have a magnificent day. Make sure to tune in later as I give you my almost-live reaction to Avengers: Infinity War. I can’t wait to tell you what I think of it. 🙂
