Saturday morning (the earliest tickets I could get) I went to my local Alamo and watched Avengers: Infinity War... and wow... that was BRUTAL.
I mean, you kind of expected it to be, but... wow. It went directions I did not expect, and my top 2 predictions, the things I was sure were going to happen, didn't.
And the 2 hour 40 minute runtime didn't feel like it while you're watching it, but after... you felt it after. It never really gave you time during the movie to process. There was too much going on, and when you started to get used to the type of action going on, they'd switch it up, but the near constant intensity of it... You walk out of the theater feeling like you came out of the bad end of a boxing match.
As far as my prediction goes about Infinity War being in the middling tier of movies... It's hard to say after the one viewing, but it's certainly not going to be a movie I revisit frequently. We'll see how I feel about it after it's paired up with Avengers: 4
