It’s April 20, which means 2 things - one of which is a national holiday that burned out liberal arts majors are celebrating, but the other more relevant association with this date is the fact that the press is finally allowed to post reviews and write about the movie. So, even though I’m not as cool (or intelligent) as a legitimate film critic, I thought I’d throw in my two cents too - I’ve been dying to talk about since I saw it almost a week ago. And besides, I originally created this blog over a year ago as a place for myself to record my thoughts on movies I watch, and I don’t think I’ve actually done that since September, with my “review” for Drive. So here it goes.
SPOILERS UNDER THE CUT. Nothing major, but please do not click “Read More” if you don’t want anything given away!
… and no big deal or anything but Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Colbie Smulders, CLARK GREGG, Kevin Feige, and freakin’ JOSS WHEDON HIMSELF showed up and I probably cried.
Oh my gosh today has been too much for me to handle.
I’m not allowed to reveal much, but under the cut are just some general thoughts about the movie (no plot details, and I wouldn’t consider these spoilers, but read at your own risk!).
