  1. Of course, you have to be careful if you have valid criticisms too, BECAUSE of the alt-right idiots. If you have anything bad to say, people want to lump you in with that group. See: Jedi, The Last.
  2. Let's not forget that Tony and Nebula are floating corpses in space if Danvers never shows up.
  3. Refs are absolutely going to over officiate Rockets/GSW in Game 2. I thought the no-calls on CP3 and Harden at the end were the right decisions, as they were clearly attempts to draw fouls. Both teams pretty much shot the same number of free throws though. I still want the Earth to open up and swallow both teams.
  4. I'd also have to assume that the Mind Stone is locked up somewhere in Avengers tower if Tony's Ultron plan is successful. So I guess Thanos is missing a couple of stones by then, who knows? Like @West Newbury Bad Boy said, it's a lot of hypotheticals.
  5. Assuming that the Ultron project doesn't go disasterously wrong, would it have mattered much in the end when Thanos decided to head that way?
  6. For name value, Galactus would be the logical choice, but you have powerhouses like Rogue Watcher, Zom or Morg that you can use. Or they'll just have some other asshat get the stones again.
  7. But if that is the case, then the Battle of New York never happens, and so on and so forth. It's probably another one of those alternate timeline deals at this point. Pretty much everyone got a pop in my theater besides Danvers. Spider-Man easily got the best reaction, I think because his dusting was so heartbreaking.
  8. Might be a longshot, but the "soul for a soul" rule with the Soul Stone might be a cheat they could use to get Widow back. Like, Cap returns it and requests her life in exchange? Seems far fetched, but not impossible.
  9. I would have preferred that too, since Bucky is Cap's best friend, but I also think Cap realizes that the public may not be able to accept Bucky at this point. The media and the public only know him as a killer, even if there was a minor attempt to absolve him in Civil War. It felt weird to me that Buck didn't get to have Steve's final conversation though. I did like that their talk before Cap went back in time mirrored the one they had in First Avenger, though. I watched it a second time lol. To be honest, it's a good film on it's own, but will have diminishing returns if you weren't invested in all of the films before it. Say, if you just saw the "big" ones, you're missing a ton here, due to all the small lines and callbacks. I reckon I can accept the alternate reality explanation. I mean, our only basis for the rules of time travel come from movies, so you can technically do whatever the hell you want. I hope there is a DVD extra of Luis giving the rundown of the entire saga.
  10. I was thinking about Infinity War pretty much never happening now, due to the time travel. With that said, shouldn't that have undone literally everything done by the original snap, since they killed Thanos before he could do it? Time travel stories are such a headache.
  11. My only really huge issue with this was the Nebula stuff. It was like they booked themselves into a corner with how to get Thanos back involved, and the deal with Nebula was like "ok, this is all we got". Also, the battle with Thanos didn't feel as personal as Infinity War. I KNOW that the stakes were high, but they didn't feel that way. It almost felt like they were fighting a different dude. Having Danvers kill him would have "Roman Reigns'd" here instantly, and I say that as someone who liked her solo film. Wouldn't be shocked if the "5 years later" stuff gets retconned quickly. That is going to make it tough for their narratives going forward. All-in-all, the only thing I really wanted was for them to nail the ending and make me cry. They hit a home run on that. The Stark/Peter reunion kicked off the water works, and idk if I ever recovered after that. Loved the tiny moments in the funeral scene like Hank "never trust a Stark" Pym even being there. Thought the final shot was beautiful too, because a major thread throughout the franchise is that Cap never got to live a life. He was a soldier from day one and nothing else, and the last shot was him having what he always wanted.
  12. I don't think GSW is going to miss Boogie too much, BUT the worst thing that could happen to the Warriors coming out of that game, is that the Clippers are actually confident now. They believe they have a shot at this.
  13. I think it looks great, and I'm super excited that there is a concerted effort to let everyone know that it's not going to be anything like The Last Jedi. Retcon and backpedal that entire piece of shit, because I'll never watch it again anyway.
  14. It's really tough to embrace the tank, but once you do, and it works out, you are happy to have your Embiid/Luka/Towns type guy.
  15. I can't deal with this y'all.
  16. He is still, and will forever be, Dirk Nowitzki. My basketball fandom won't be the same without him. I can't put into words what he meant to me as a personal hero of mine.
  17. I can't decide if Emiko being the lead heel is the worst or best swerve in Arrow history.
  18. Guys. Players Only is literally the worst.
  19. I came away from Arrow thinking that they could do a Batman Beyond inspired series set in the future. I loved the little touch of Nissa being the one to train Mia, lending credence to the idea that Oliver doesn't survive.
  20. Just when I'm all about the Mavs Tank, they go and dad dick GSW. Luka has a triple double before the 4th even starts, but I'm reading Trae Young stans try to convince themselves that he(he being Young. Pronouns pal) is the ROTY.
  21. The Lance Air Guitar truly was one of the most bizarre moments of the season.
  22. Something I didn't know till today, which blew my mind. This is the first time since 1963 that Wilt isn't in the top 5 all-time in scoring.
  23. If anyone wants to talk about Dirk, y'all know where to find me.
