Movie Review: Avengers: Infinity War





Can we talk about this yet? If you haven't seen the movie, don't read this!

Did I miss this scene twice? I didn't see it in the movie!

I saw Avengers: Infinity War the weekend it opened. It was long, coming in at around 2 hours and 30 minutes. I went alone and had a mostly enjoyable experience. Aside from the guy sitting next to me telling me every time he had to pee.

After seeing the movie, I needed consoling. We. Just. Got. Black. Panther. And with a snap of his grossly huge fingers, Thanos wiped him away!

Ok, I jumped too far ahead.

Thanos. The big bad daddy of the Universe. He wants to do population control so that the Universe does not cease to be. He believes it's worth it to maintain sustainability. By killing half of the population. In order to do this, he must collect all of the Infinity Stones and then all power is his. Read more about the stones here.

We don't want to see the black man die first (bye Heimdall). It hurt when Loki is strangled to death, kind of. You had to sacrifice Gamora?! Dude!

I have watched all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies and a lot of the tv shows. I'm vested in these characters. And here comes Thanos. We've heard about him before. Gamora thought she killed him in Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 1. He sent Loki to New York in Avengers, which made Loki think he had some feelings for him, but clearly not.

Dr. Strange sees every scenario and it all was bad! He had no choice but to give him the Time stone or everybody was gonna die.

I was stuck on this movie both times I saw it. Like a deer in headlights stuck. The second time I saw it I think my feelings were hurt more.

Peter Parker takes the cake. He knew he was going. He didn't want to go.

I've talked to several people regarding the movie and overall, all of us needed a support group after. A few people didn't get it. Then I would ask them questions about the other movies in the MCU and they wouldn't understand. That formed their overall dislike. So I recommend watching all of the MCU movies. Yes, even the Hulk.

Speaking of the Hulk. That dude got the Green beat out of him in the beginning of the movie and refused to show up after! This was comical and very disappointing! But I guess if you don't wanna die, you don't wanna die.

Most people were upset because 1. Black Panther was among the departed and WE JUST GOT HIM! Well, we just got him in a solo movie. and 2. the "good" guys didn't win. Can they win them all? 3. Y'all could have kept the foolery OUT OF WAKANDA! You and I both know in the next Avengers, they are coming back stronger than ever. I think that the "departed" may be stuck in the soul stone or they all were beamed to some far away planet. I'm hopeful that we will get them back.

We are happy to see Steve Rogers return, Tony Stark is still, well, Tony Stark (poor Pepper). Vision gets his whole entire ass kicked (and saved by his girlfriend, Scarlet Witch) and then has to die a horrible death, twice. Thor is my boo. There is so much to talk about!

I don't read the comics so I'm unsure of how the movies line up with the comic stories. We saw Nick Fury send a message to Captain Marvel before he departed, so the next few movies should be very interesting!

See a complete listing of the upcoming movies here. I'm here for all of the universes! I can't keep up with the comics, too much, but I can watch the movies!

I know my thoughts are all over the place with this review. So are my feelings! I look forward to what's next! Hopefully our heroes will return!

XOXO,
RoJo

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks! Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash! I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one. Here are what this product c

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh. She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes... After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard! She really enjoys Dial W

Baby Magic is Here! My Birth Story

Princesses get their way. And true to form, my little princess decided that she, and only she would be in control of when she arrived. Forget about me or the doctors trying to schedule ANYTHING! **This is a long post that goes into detail. Read at your own risk.** On Sunday, July 21st...no scratch that. On Saturday, July 20th, I was having cramps. They weren't too painful and were coming only about once every hour. Honestly, I thought I had gas. I had a good bit of visitors that day and told everybody that I felt like I was going to have the baby soon. I was already on bed rest and wasn't doing much. Thanks to some awesome friends, I had enough food that all I had to do was warm it and eat it. After all of the company left, I really just wanted to lie down. So I went to bed. I was awakened maybe 3 times during the night with these "cramps." The next morning I got out of bed about 10:30am (late for me) and took a shower, hoping that the heat would soothe me.
