Mini Movie Review
Avengers: End Game - First off, be aware this movie is 3 hours long! It won't feel like it, but your bladder will know. So FYI! lol. There was a lot to like about the film. Tons of emotional fodder and we get to see characters that have been gone for a while. Tons of humorous and serious moments. Some fun mixed character interactions. It's only in the last half hour or so that the plot becomes forced as there are certain things they want to happen, regardless of the fact there are better alternatives. They also don't take certain events into account during at least one of the time travel moments.
(SPOILERS!!!!!) - Quill getting bushwhacked on the dead planet. They totally ignore the group of bad guys who show up on the planet when he's there. An unconscious Quill would mean a Dead Quill (by alien rats or by bad guys!). Plus the two picking up this rock would have been ambushed just like Quill. (These guys were acting separately from Thanos' other peeps.) Doctor Strange/Iron Man - Strange wields power, and like the Ancient One, uses the Eye of Agamotto. So would he not be better able to survive or shield himself when using the five Infinity Stones? Yet that avenue is never pursued in any way. Cap's decision at the end - while for me it was a squee moment, on further thought there's no way he could pull it off. Would someone of his moral fiber be able to not fight crime or injustice when he could make a difference? All for selfish gain? I think not. (Plus this also gives the finger to Bucky! He gets left behind!) Also, while the moment with Falcon was very moving, but if you're not acquainted with the comics, it seems strange, especially since he's not done any leadership before this or has been shown to have powers of his own.
I was disturbed by the fact they held a funeral/vigil for Tony, but they did nothing for Natasha! Why did they not do both together? They knew all the same people. Why would they shut her out like that? She doesn't get her own movie and now no sendoff either? Come on!
I was able to ignore some of this stuff way better than hubby. Just be warned! Super build up and awesomeness for convenient letdowns. Rating: 3.5 out of 5. (Hubby's Rating: Better for Matinee. (Yeah, he was not happy! lol)
Tales of Berseria
Some really nice details! I believe this is an Inn at Loegres.
A super cold winter. Not that Velvet feels it.
Crystal caves. What are those exorcists up to?
Moss filled caves, almost jungle like. The goal is near.
Gorgeous coastal view! Look at that sky!
One of the many ways the Abbey is restricting the populace. Giant lock system restricting trading by ship.
The pirate ship Captained by Airfried. He's currently missing, captured by the Abbey. Velvet and her companions have joined them as they have similar paths and goals.
Heading to port. Really love this ship!
View from port out to the open sea. Calming, isn't it? :)
I will say the Abbey does have some impressive churches.
Hope you have a great weekend! Till next time. :)
