Nope. But I've read Eric Van Lustbader's novels.

Dont get me wrong, i loved the movie but IMO, Hulks take on time travel was really appalling. It totally goes against Neutrons 3rd law of motion which states that for every action there must be an equal & opposite reaction (action/consequences).
In trying to avoid all sorts of time paradox associated with time travel they simply made a mess of the storyline, but i do get it though, if they had followed the common time travel theory, the flicks runtime wouldn't have exceeded an hour.
I think it's a new time line....remember how Iron man and Doctor strange where talking about the odds of winning in infinity war and even end game....One shot in sh1t load of timelines....


Don't know what these niqqas are saying ...Endgame was epic.....i still re watch some scenes till date
A rat letting Ant man out is more random and makes more sense than a human being doing it...seeing as a whole lot of humans..went into oblivion...thanks to thanos......even if the storyline was written in such a way that a mad man or even a professor activated the quantum realm.....these niqqas will still see it as a plot hole...

Y'll keep hammering on this "Highest grossing movie thing" which to me isn't an indication of quality.

Avatar was highest grossing for a while and still gets a bad rep.


You like it? Fine.

Don't just attribute its quality to B.O earnings.

That film will have its haters: mine self included.

Get that!


Avatar was a good movie tbh

it didn't, altering the past by removing the infinity stones creates a new timeline.
The time travel was clean like white.

That's exactly my point, They grouped up in pairs, traveled back in time, retrieved the stones(an act which creates a butterfly effect). By their actions, they all created an alternate timeline individually. Travelling back, they all return to the original historical timeline which remains unchanged instead of to the individual alternate timeline they created. What am trying to say is that, the timeline they ought to have found themselves in/traveled back to, should have been the alternate timeline/new they created & not the original historical timeline they left behind/actual timeline because the original historical timeline they left behind ceases to exist in the wake of an alternate timeline.

@bolded you are correct but the quantum realm gave them the pathway to return to their owm timeline.

Contrary to what most folks think, I don't hate Marvel films as y'll think.

CA: Civil War
Avengers: Infinity War
Black Panther are some Marvel films which stood out for me.

But I dislike when you'll give the MCU unnecessary credit.
Each new film is treated as the next best thing since Citizen Kane, when in reality they're just generic films with mostly the same tone.
Which is why I've continually opined that time won't be kind to the MCU.

Not that they're bad perse, but it irks when I hear some folks call them "Great".
For whatever their intentions are in making these films, they're good: that's all they'll ever be.

That being said; my main criticism for Endgame was that I found it somehow drab:too much dialogue, emotional scenes and grief.
Given the events of Infinity War and the connection with past events, twas expected.
But for a movie like this, I go in expecting some heavy dose of action; had to wait 2 hr 30 mins for that.
And when it came, it vanished before I could say Hulk616.


Infinity War had everything in the right amounts: drama, humor, action, suspense, Thanos' dialogue and whatnots.

Solely my take.
finally you said the truth grin grin
Marvel >>>>>>> DC

Bad Times at the El Royale-

This movie feels like a Tarantino film and I was a bit surprised to see a certain 'Drew Goddard' when the credits began rolling at the end.

Not too much dialogue, lots of flashbacks that make the plot seem non-linear when it actually isn't, lovely old songs, an abundance of shocking bursts of graphic violence and thankfully little profanity make this movie one of the most engaging I've watched this year.

And the ending! shocked

Oh, the ending.... The climactic scene, Miles' selflessness and Dock O'Kelly's little play acting for the young man's benefit almost made me shed tears. cry


Trivia- The actress who played 'Darlene Sweet' is a Nigerian grin

8.5/10

I just hope the way people are making excuses for avengers: Endgame, when terminator: dark fate premieres they'll make that same excuse for the movie. After all, it's all about time travel, no?. grin

Lolz at the bolded, baba you're right, but at least they should done better in writing with that aspect of the plot. They should have at least written something that confirms to the laws of physics & also to the common theory we are used to. That's why I hold The Boys tvseries in high esteem. The series had a somewhat more realistic take on what being a superhero entails....
That being said, i still hold Endgame in high regard.

If I may interject, Isihlove ain't totally wrong. The actress is also a citizen of Nigeria through her parents. She was born to Nigerian parents who were presumably from the eastern part of Nigeria as her full name suggests so. She more like has a dual citizenship, same goes for folks like, John Boyega, Chiwetel Ejiofor etc.

Bro, She doesn't have a dual citizenship, have read up on her somewhere, she was born in south London and she's british of Nigerian descent, that's the proper term to use than to outrightly say she's Nigerian.

The boys is a satirical take on the hero archetype. It is an anti-superhero series. You cannot compare it to a typical superhero movie like avengers. The boys would be more naturally grounded in reality. Although they are both works of fiction.


Time travel always leaves plotholes. Endgame is no different

She's completely wrong and so are you. she could be 2nd generation brit which will eliminate her from being eligible to a nigerian passport. And even if she's first generation brit, ie, her parents were born in nigeria, she will need to officially apply for a nigerian citizenship to be granted one. So for now, she's a brit with Nigerian ancestry.

As in. I hate it when people analyse superhero films like a non fictitious work. For the fact that there are people with powers has already set a tone of what to expect for the rest of the storylines. Time travel can be whatever they want it to be. logic doesn't apply in superhero films.

John wick was not honest when he said that.

You are missing the point,

The word Samurai comes from "to serve" and John Wick is good example of a Samurai before he went rogue.

In relation to your last comment, you can't attain the kind of skill level of a Samurai if you do not thrive for perfection in your training days.

Like you go back in time to change the past which will result in changing the future, then that future you came from won't exist again. And also if the future is changed you won't in the first place have any reason to go back to the past initially.

Good,
So are saying that the Avengers changed nothing when they went back to the past?
