  1. ***Spoiler Thread*** Avengers: Endgame

    When did anybody assume the stones couldn’t come off? It was posited that perhaps, in the heat of battle, when Stark literally had a moon thrown at him and he was fighting for his and half the universe’s lives, how to manipulate a thing he’d literally never encountered before never occurred to him. Because Stark is a genius, but he isn’t omnipotent. Also, taking off the gauntlet was Quill’s plan. Quill, the guy who was hanging out with Gamora, Thanos’s adopted daughter, who all knew it was a thing he could wear on his hand. Seriously, you’re just naysaying at this point, but not even well. It’s mind-boggling that you have this much of an issue with this.

    It’s a gauntlet. Gauntlets are designed to come off. That’s not a hard leap in logic to make. Plus, taking the gauntlet off like that was Quill’s plan.
  3. ***Spoiler Thread*** Avengers: Endgame

    And they would know that ... how? Strange saw 14+ million possibilities; he wasn’t there to help design the glove. Stark didn’t know how the glove worked. He didn’t know how the stones interacted with it. He didn’t know what the stones would actually do. This is a weird hill to die on. It’s not even a hill. It’s a slightly raised patch of dirt.
  4. ***Spoiler Thread*** Avengers: Endgame

    You’re acting like Stark’s plan was always to just steal the stones. It wasn’t. They didn’t even expect ‘14 Thanos to appear after they reversed the first snap. Absolutely ever single bit of that was working on the fly. Again, it was the last gasp of a desperate man who had nothing else to try. He was out of options. Every big hitter they had got knocked aside. He had already been beaten by Thanos, probably permanently weakened, and knew he couldn’t beat him one on one again. So why didn’t he think of it the first go around? Because none of the things that would have triggered that idea had happened yet. And yes, after having interacted with the Infinity Gauntlet up close and personal, Stark was then able to design a stand-in. Why is that an argument for him not understanding how it worked the first time he encountered Thanos?
  5. ***Spoiler Thread*** Avengers: Endgame

    Stark had literally never seen the Gauntlet before, let alone interacted with it or understood how it worked. Why would that be the backup plan? If you can’t remove the glove by overpowering him, why you you remove a stone the same way? Stark stealing the stones in EG is the last gasp of a desperate man. It’s literally the only play he has left.
  6. Spiderman: Far from home

    I love Spider-Man so effing much.
  7. ***Spoiler Thread*** Avengers: Endgame

    Yup. This.
  8. ***Spoiler Thread*** Avengers: Endgame

    Isn’t Cap’s number 1 defining feature leadership and inspiration? I think White Wolf is great, but he ain’t a leader.
  9. Yeah, you can trade comp picks now.
  10. Buffalo traded the 158th pick to move up two spots from 40 to 38. Panthers moved up 10 spots. Not saying it was necessarily the best idea, just saying that’s a legitimate difference.
  11. ***Spoiler Thread*** Avengers: Endgame

    I don’t get the drama around Marvel saying “Before you didn’t have me”. Why would anybody think that line would be anything other than somebody’s ego talking? It’s not like they’d have a character drop that line and then wipe the floor with the BBEG. That’s a laughably bad way to interpret that. Also, Thanos didn’t exactly wipe the floor with the Big Three. He won, yeah, but he took a beating getting there. I don’t get the consternation about power levels, tbh.
  12. ***Spoiler Thread*** Avengers: Endgame

    This movie was exactly what I wanted it to be. The send off for the original big three was wonderful. I thought broken, defeated Thor was a great choice. Cap’s and Tony’s interactions were excellent. “Avengers assemble.” “Hail Hydra.” Cap being worthy (how that played out was awesome!). Witch going HAM! I also really enjoyed how Vormir played out. I thought them fighting it out was great, both wanted to make the sac play. And just think, Strange saw Endgame two years ago and didn’t spoil it. Why people find it so hard not to is beyond me.
  13. The thing I loved most about Winter Soldier is it’s a great political thriller dressed up as a super hero movie. Captain America punches stuff and you get great character development, but at its heart, it stirs up some really complex issues (much more so than is typical of the genre), like the nature of loyalty, patriotism, and authority.
  14. Ant-Man feels a little high. Maybe Spider-Man, too. Iron Man a bit low. But honestly, everything in about the 8-16 range or so is pretty interchangeable for me.
