    Now that's just bad news all the way around.

    The guy was being a jerk and shouldn't have been spoiling. But people also shouldn't resort to physical violence. It's a great movie...but it is ultimately just a movie.

    Why can't we all just get along and enjoy movies together? Sigh.

    The movie made $1.2 billion dollars over the weekend. That's staggering. If I recall, the high estimate was for $950 million. It outperformed that by $250 million -- that's a full domestic gross for a successful movie.

    I think we can safely say that we have by no means seen the last Avengers movie. There may be different characters in future installments, sure, but there is no way this is the last film titled "Avengers."

    We are going to see this in 1 hour in Imax 3D. This is in keeping with our policy of waiting until the intense hype dies down for a film and we are at a matinee with 4 or 5 other people. From what I have read we may still be in a large crowd. I’ll report back.

    I think you’re a bit early thinking the hype has died down. ;)

    Yeah, at my local theater, there's a show about to start in 5 minutes in their biggest theater and it's more crowded than on most Friday nights. It's Monday morning at 11 AM and it's nearly sold out so I think it'll be a couple weeks before the crowds die down.

    The baristas at my local Starbucks asked if I saw it. I said yes, but teased that it was "the worst shark movie ever made." That got a chuckle. It's pretty hard to discuss these things in public without giving anything away.

    Got a note from someone I know who went to see it. Said it is better than any of the last Star Wars trilogy films.Might try again to see it tonight.

    My friend went to a 9:30 am Sunday showing. It was sold out. At 9:30 am. 9 freaking 30. That's a serious WTF. Not wanting to go home empty handed and not wanting to wait more than 30 minutes, he grabbed a 3D ticket for the 9:50 show. Predictably enough, he said many scenes including the entire final battle were overly dark and murky. In contrast, my Dolby Cinema showing was clear as day. Between the PQ and the subwoofer and rumble seat action, it was a sweet time at the movies.

    I will say the excellence of Endgame spoiled The Battle of Winterfell for me. I was like, "that's nice, but it's no Endgame".

    My matinee Imax 3D showing was indeed full, except for the nose pressed against the screen section at front. Luckily seating was reserved. We enjoyed the film thoroughly, and found the 3 hours flew by.

    On a strictly technical note: I saw both the IMAX 3D 1.90:1 version and the regular 3D 2.40:1 version. The 2.40:1 version didn’t feel as tightly cropped to me as it did with Infinity War. I prefer the IMAX version of Endgame but it didn’t seem to lose as much in translation to regular screens as Infinity War did.

    Kind of over baked in some areas. Like they were going for feels and ended up just being melodramatic. Felt like it could have had 20 minutes cut from it and lost nothing. Other than that, it was decent.

    We all know that film is an art form that is very subjective. However, it still amazes me to a certain degree that a film can be universally loved by so many people, yet still have some people that feel quite differently. As humans we have so much in common, but there are major differences in each of us. One of those differences is how our brain and emotions processes a piece of art like a movie on the big screen along with our personal expectations for that movie. No doubt, it's a good thing as it encourages discussion among us.

    One more note on our matinee. We as former education workers are always puzzled by the amount of school aged children who are at something like this Monday 11:00 a.m. matinee. Do parents think a movie is more important than school?

    For me, I'm not particularly invested in what happens to the characters so while I'm entertained by the Marvel movies, I don't feel any emotion for the characters. That being said, I'm glad that other people are moved and love these movies.

    So you didn't tear up once during this movie?
