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 claims to be…

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities.




If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome.

Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you show up empty…

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 Watery Melon scen…
