    Thank you for perfectly explaining why the suspension of disbelief is like not a thing in such a money making franchise when it comes to massive character death. It didn’t feel like sad or real when there is literally a way to reverse time? It has no weight you know what I mean?

    I mean, there never really was a possibility of the movie having any consequences that last for longer than its immediate sequel. But that doesn't take away from the fact that it in itself was a good and emotional movie. Especially as far as super hero movies go.

    yes i know that the characters will come back, but i still had the dramatic crying reaction. the point of a movie is to enjoy it not pick it apart. i know your brain probably just automatically does that but i feel kind of bad for you because if that’s so how can you honestly ever enjoy most movies.

    Being on the wailing side of audience, but speaking only on behalf of myself, I can tell you that whenever I watch a movie I make a point of trying to "get into character". When Gamorra dies I think of Quill waking up and realising she's not longer there, and had it not been for the fucking bubbles it would have actually made him the murderer. When Peter dies I put myself in Tony's shoes, seeing how this really young boy is fading from existence, feeling he is somehow responsible; he was seeing not a prodigy or a brat, but a really scared boy. When Vision goes I try to see myself as the scarlet witch, regretting not having been living their relationship to the fullest, knowing she is powerless even when she is so powerful. Well, you get my point. Credits roll and I'm once again myself thinking, yeah right, Black Panther sequel is on the way, there are a billion alternate universes, Tom Holland is the cutest motherfucker ever and his death was based on that; he gets a melodramatic goodbye. Of course they're not fucking dead. But for the run-time? Oh gurl, there is no other world than the one these characters live in.
    And that's how you leave the theater with the worst case of run down mascara and eyeliner ever.

    Some people are getting really salty about you laughing at other people crying over the deaths and it's like...guys, you're really insulting the intelligence of people who cry at movies by assuming that they don't have the capability to understand that they're crying at fiction and that said crying can be seen as an overreaction and inherently amusing to others. You're being overly defensive for no reason.

    I was going along with the movie right up until the end when everyone started disappearing. The long scene with spider-man and tony... like, I get it... peter is like a son to tony, tony is a father figure to peter.. I get that was why that had to be dragged out... But knowing after watching bucky and t'challa and the other peter etc etc vanish that it wasn't gonna be permanent, really dragged me out of the movie. I rolled my eyes and after the film my friend said she was desperately sad watching peter parker go and I was just like... why?? So, as great an event the movie was... the ending kinda ruined it for me...

    12:21 No, Jenny that never happened in the comic. They simply came back without any memory of being dead after Gamora took the Gauntlet and wished to reverse the universe to what it was before the 'snap'. And yea I agree it's so stupid to see people say things as 'THIS MOVIE IS SO EMOTIONAL' and 'MY FEELS'.. There's enough movies that are emotionally heavy, but Infinity War isn't one.

    I know a lot of people can't relate to this, but I cry for Spider-Man every time I watch this movie. The first 2 times I watched it I was literally sobbing. Of course, I know that it'll be alright in the end. (Especially since Spider-Man: Far From Home is supposed to come) And, of course, I know that it's just a movie with fictional characters. It's still really sad, and I'm still going to cry.
    It actually kind of annoys me when I'm crying during a movie and someone says something like, "he's the main character, you know that he's going to be fine" or "It's just a movie" and I'm just here like "LET ME GRIEVE"

      Of all the characters who got dusted, Spider-Man takes the longest. He falls onto Tony and says, "Mr. Stark, I don't feel so good..." This is because he has Spidey Sense. His Spidey Sense is literally screaming, "I'M DYING" and Peter can _feel it._

    The way I took the whole "Thanos actually loves Gamora" thing (because I still refuse to believe there's anything good about their relationship) is that he genuinely 100% thinks he loves her and thinks he is doing his best with their relationship. The thing about abusive people is that the way they act is the only way they know how to "love" others. It's not actual love, it's not caring or nurturing or uplifting, but it's the only way Thanos knows how to love - cruelly, violently, delusionally. I mean just look at the way he's trying to solve the whole "overpopulation" problem. He genuinely thinks he's doing the right thing when it's absolutely the most cruel way to go about it. Same goes for his relationship with Gamora.

    Oh! Here's a theory: Thanos actually snaps everyone into a reality where the Twilight Zone is a real place and they all end up scattered throughout the Zone and are forced to go through each episode learning a moral lesson until they reach last one where they can all go home now or have to start all over depending on what was done or learned. Quantum Leap/Twilight Zone/Marvel crossover theory.

  • Creepypasta & Squirrels

    Remember the TZ episode with the characters waking up in an abandoned city and both the main characters and the city ended up being the toys of a child in a family of giants? The donation box one always makes me think of that one.

    I LOVE you reveling in the deaths of the characters. I'd probably be the same. I mean, I've totally cried at the deaths of fictional characters, but in most media, it MEANS something. It means "that person will not be there anymore", but when Marvel kills off characters like Spider-Man, it doesn't matter how emotionally manipulative the death scene is, I'm just thinking "Yeah, like fuck Marvel is going to ACTUALLY kill Spider-Man".
    P.S. If the ending DID have product placement where Thanos just takes a sip of Bud Lite I probably would've died laughing. You really got me with that joke.

    It's not that we don't know they're coming back, it's that in the context of the movie and the universe as a whole, very close companions and friends die before each other's eyes, and characters that we've grown with over several movies. It's a moment of anguish as Thanos wins and the implications of the victory. Of course they're coming back, but it's still a harrowing scene within the context.

    Your dissection of Thanos’ plans are very in-depth and well argued. And I completely agree with you. His plans are not great, he’s pretty wrong about all of it. He’s a sociopath and a madman. Thanos never provides proof that his plan will work, but he doesn’t care. He desperately needs to execute his plan simply to justify his ego. He does not care about the universe, he just wants to be right. Nobody listened to his idea on Titan, and everyone died. So in his mind, if they listened to him, they’d all be saved. So you’re absolutely right, he is wrong

    If universe-spanning overpopulation is the problem and Thanos has all the Infinity Stones... can't he, like, just make some new planets. Or use the Time Stone and the Space stone to check every planet in the universe in no time and find the ones that are habitable - the universe is kinda big (I heard) there gotta be some of those still left - and use some portal transportation system to spread out some of that population from the overcrowded planets.
    I really think he should've done a little more brainstorming... I guess super powerful just doesn't necessarily mean super creative.

  • Iwontgiveyou Myinformation

    Thanos plan is so incredibly stupid and I hate, hate hate it when people think it's good. It's basically him finding a really lazy and bad "solution" to a problem on one planet and then apllying it to all the others without even knowing anyting about them or thinking about the possible differences for a millisecond.
    I mean if we look at earth there are several things we notice right away:
    1) overpopulation is not the problem, bad distrubution and imperial colonisalist greed are the reason for people starving and for most wars. if you take away half the population, the power will still be in the same peoples hands and they will keep exploiting the others.
    2) if you take away half the popultation, literally everything breaks apart. it's extremely naive to think that it's all just about material resources which we just don't have enough of, when in reality our wealth comes from competant work forces reproducing it constantly. imagine how quickly the global economy would fall apart, if suddenly half the people die. imagine the chaos and the political reaction to it.

    • Iwontgiveyou Myinformation
      Iwontgiveyou Myinformation 15 days ago

      +john cornwell hmm. who knows. since it's a very theoretical scenario I can't say you are wrong, but I think the consequences of a complete global economic crash (with half the knowledge and workforce gone) are pretty unpredictable.
      Also: What about climate change? A problem that could literally cause the planet becoming hostile to uninhabitable for the human race. One would think people would rally around that cause pretty quickly, but that's not whats happening at all.
      Also: 9/11 lead to the Iraq war, killing over a hundred thousand civilians, probably leading to increased terrorism which lead to increased destabizisation of the US. Also the patriot act was a response to 9/11, taking away civil rights and shifting the US towards a police state.
      Really one could argue, that all 9/11 did was causing a hysteria which allowed imperialist polititions to exploit and have the people on board for actions that would in the long run further contribute to their own destruction (not to mention the sorrow of many innocent people outside the us)
      Edit: A few more points that came to my mind:
      1) Many people are unaware that the stated goal of Osama Bin Laden was to draw the US into so many wars that they would collapse under their weight. He thought (rightfully) that this attack would perpetuate a circle of violence and lead to inner destabilization. So the unifying trauma of 9/11 made people, blinded by their rage, literally do exactly what the terrorists wanted them to
      2) You are saying the new alliance might last centuries, but look at the US right now. One could very reasonably argue, that the consequences of 9/11 are a main factor in the current unpresidented division amongst the american people, the looming threat of democracy fully ending or even outright civil war.

      Look at America post 9/11. For months everyone was one against a common enemy whether it was right or wrong.
      Look how quickly antisemitism stopped being mainstream idea for decades in Europe after WW2.

      Now imagine an enemy who KILLED HALF THE UNIVERSE Every God damn nation on the face of the earth, every god fucking planet in the universe would unite to get revenge against Thanos.
      The only issue is Thanos is ALL POWERFUL. If you don't stop him before he snaps his hand, the universe would lose again.
      You damn sure could bet the universe wouldn't miss to take down the mad titan.
      It would cause a universal alliance the might last centuries

    • Iwontgiveyou Myinformation
      Iwontgiveyou Myinformation 16 days ago

      +john cornwell So your theory is that the shared grieve would bring humanity closer together? What makes you assume that would be the case?
      If we look at history, we can see a clear pattern: trauma, economic crisis and destabilization lead to fascism, war and madness. Look up the history of the Weimar Republic and how it turned into Nazi Germany. The humilition of losing the first world war and the allies taking away core regions of germany and austria alongside economic bondage were the slight to the german identity that Hitler exploited and the economic crisis of the 30ies was the source of desperation that really drove the Nazis rise to power forward.
      After the second world war the allies rebuilt Germany and Austria and basically forgave them their crimes accepting them as economic and political partners, which lead to them becoming two of the most stable and rich democracies on the planet.
      If we look at the profile of psychopaths and criminals it is often great trauma that lies at the core of their mental illness. Child abusers for example often got abused themselves.
      From what I see, trauma and grievence almost always lead to their own circular reproduction and are seldom a great recipe for things getting better.
      Oh and also: Sry for "bitching" about starving children, modern day slavery and senseless exploitative wars killing millions of innocent people. I guess all of that is just oversensitive nonsense for you.

    5 Characters in Search of an Exit is one of my favorite Twilight Zone episodes, it has a message about us being unable to see what is the true world beyond our limitations, that there will be mysteries we cannot see or solve and if we do, it'll just mystify us more.
    It also say that said bigger picture has no knowledge of the smaller one we are in and what struggles we face.
    It is the piece of media that has come closest to how I suspect a creator entity would stand in relation to us (though it isn't the one I hope for) and it is an amazing religious metaphore to have been made that long ago.

  • TheLuckySpades
    TheLuckySpades Month ago +1

    As for Thanos' "love" fir Gamora:
    They never say he was good to her, they make it very clear he never was and that she hates him as deeply as possible, he was manipulative, abusive and brutal to an extreme.
    However, as "confirmed by space magic", those actions in his mind were an expression of love, he twists the definition of love, mercy and saving to fit his own purpose, love for him is abuse which he claims strengthens, mercy is death which he claims ends suffering and saving mean genocide which he claims will stop lack.
    The movie is from his perspective so we get his twisted reasoning, his oxymoron of an dialogue and the hypocrisy of his actions.

    • Sammathnar
      Sammathnar 16 days ago

      +TheLuckySpades But then the movie, as Jenny points out, is saying that abusive parents love their children and that love is a genuine love that is as valid as any other kind of selfless love. Not just believes they love them (which I agree they do), but objectively loves them, since the space magic confirms it. That is a weird stance to take, unless you believe there is no difference between loving someone in a selfless manner and the kind of "love" stalker, pedophiles or abusive parents have for their victims. I don't think that is the same emotion at all, regardless of what the person actually think to themselves. If they are, then love is not really a concept at all, and could be any emotion labeled as such in a persons mind.

    • TheLuckySpades
      TheLuckySpades 16 days ago

      +Sammathnar Sammathnar by twisting the definition I should probably clarify, I wrote that comment before I had completely cleared what I meant myself.
      The "space magic" requires a sacrifice of the highest order of something with a huge emotional attachment, of "love".
      By twisting the definition I mean that how he forms that bond and how he acts on that emotion is antithetical to what we commonly see as love.
      You can sacrifice nearly anything to get that, a toddler could sacrifice his favorite plush, a widow her last picture of her beloved, a pet, a friend, a toy, a trinket,...
      There is simply no one single "true" version of love, it is subjective and personal and terrifying.
      Finding people eho love in a similar and healthy way is a difficult task.
      Thanos doesn't love in a healthy way, he loves abusivly and that is not good for anyone.
      But just because his love isn't good doesn't mean it does not exist.
      To be honest, no one who's love is good would sacrifice someone else for that and thus it's far less likely that the good would get the stone over the wicked.

    • Sammathnar
      Sammathnar 16 days ago

      But the space magic, which presumably knows what real love is, accepts this as love. So you are saying if you change the definition of love, you can sacrifice nearly anything get that stone....which makes the whole conceit fall apart.

    Good on Jenny for making this and I completely agree. I also don't understand how people are getting so emotionally attached to the 'deaths' in this when, even ignoring other movies, the fact that it's part one of however many they milk it out into guarantees that they won't hold.
    Am I just emotionally crippled? Because what makes death emotionally sad for me is the finality of a life. If you believe the person is coming back then it's not really death. Is it?
    The plot was also full of contrivances and laugh out loud plot twists. "Hi, I'm Thanos, and my plan is to collect every infinity stone. I'm far stronger than my goons, and I have a stone that allows me to teleport at will. At least two stones are on earth and one is in this decrepit old mining outpost in the middle of space. I will go to the single stone and send my goons who are completely okay with me wiping half their sorry asses out of existence to earth because... if I don't then I'll never kidnap my daughter who I need to get another stone despite not knowing it, and who I don't know is going to follow me but I'll wait for her because I'm sure she will."
    In fact, Thanos's whole motivation was ridiculous. Talk about try to ape off Watchmen, whose story of wiping out millions for some golden age peace is equally flawed. This is a rare case where the comic book story of Thanos murdering half the universe to impress a girl was far more engaging. But hey, it seems to work for the uneducated masses, so who am I to judge.

    The problem with Thanos and his goal and the Infinity Stones is this...Thanos can alter both sides of the equation. That is, overpopulation=war, famine, chaos. Ok, killing fifty percent of the population. Well...people will continue to have children, right? At some point, overpopulation comes again at some point, right? On the other hand, why not INCREASE resources? Why not make everyone and everything in the universe sterile for a generation, meaning, one generation of people across the universe is sterile. Population decreases? He has control over everything, so all manner of solutions are possible to the problem of overpopulation.

    Going into the movie, I specifically said, "As long as Loki, Peter, and Bucky don't die, I think I can deal."
    Welp.

    I cried at the end of Infinity War, but that’s just because I’m a huge nerd for this series and they can manipulate my emotions. Outside the theater, I was like, “Well of course a lot of those deaths aren’t going to stick”, but in the moment, I was just wrapped up in the story. I’m a sappy sap, I totally own it.

    in terms of living resentment of killing half a population, He's taken up a God-complex to control the natural order of things regardless of sentiment or....lmao popularity.
    As long as the species thrives with less suffering, he will do what it takes.
    And perhaps his actions have prevented wars, poverty, and starvation. When taken to these accounts and the civilization living in prosperity, some ppl will forget the horrors that were taken to ensure comfortability and stability.
    Much like in real life

    gamora was bred to be a killing warrior, and Thanos has respect for fighters.
    So yea, in a demented way, there's love. He definitely treasured her

    Let;'s see if they go the comic book route and have Thor just rounding up reincarnated Asgardians to rebuild Asgard (though, considering that after Odin died, Asgard just went to shit anyway, I don't see the point...)

    I was surprised you were so critical of audiences getting caught up in the deaths. Even if you're not paying attention to the realities of Bucky and Panther getting killed first telling you they're going to get back, it was so obvious they were going to lose this round and the snap was going to happen. But people enjoyed the drama of the deaths because they were presented in a way that was still empathetic, despite knowing everyone will come back in the next movie. But the characters don't know that. And all the characters are scared and hopeless at this point, and the movie does a good job of making us feel that (though they partially rely on you caring about them from previous movies, I don't find this a fault per se). But I just started watching your videos so I'm not sure if you are finding this to be a fault in the movie's narrative ability or its just hard for you to buy into the Marvel movies in general.

    I would love to see a video that's just like your top 5 Twilight Zone episodes, or the 5 worst episodes, or your favorite of the worst Twilight Zone episodes. I'd just love to hear you talk more about the Twilight Zone, basically.

    What I hated was Thor getting back his eye. I can tolerate Stormbreaker (since at least that one has plot relevance) despite the whole point of Ragnarok being that he no longer needed his hammer or any other weapon, but the eye really annoyed the hell out of me. Not only did Thor look cool with his eyepatch but there's also a total lack of consequence.

    Strange's cape is very popular, lol. The cornfield is where people are turned into scarecrows or jack-in-the-box's ? It's fun to rehash what will happen ... those disintegrated were the favorite heroes ... and definitely the ones left are the ones in danger of actually dying in the next movie, for example Captain America may die but I think he'll just quit and wander off ... oh and Iron Man could die but no wait, he already had his death scene so he's not allowed another one of those so he'll probably quietly retire somewhere to ripen for future cameos ...
