I finally saw #AvengersInfinityWar. It was good.

A few thoughts on Thanos as an ethical philosopher.
Thanos is presented as an ethical person, acting on a theory:

1. The universe’s resources are finite.

2. Life consumes, but does not produce, resources.

3. Thus, for anyone to thrive, large numbers of people have to be killed.
Thanos’ daughter Gomorrah rejects this conclusion, arguing that “We don't know that!”

She is questioning the idea that the universe's resources are finite.

And indeed, this is often assumed to be case, but *we don't know that*.

ME: Hi, um. Mr. Thanos, was it?
THANOS: That's correct.
ME: Could we just talk for a second here? I feel like if I'm going to die here, I'd appreciate having a clear understanding as to why.
THANOS: Hm. Well, I don't see why not.

(I now pause for a half hour or so, specifically so @KolarRachel @eflind and others trying to avoid spoilers can mute this thread)
ME: So I understand that your lifelong goal is to curb overpopulation on a galactic / universal level.

#Thanos : Indeed.

ME: So I might disagree with your means, but rationally, I guess I can at least sort of see where you're coming from? Kind of? A little anyway.

Did we watch the same movie? Seriously? This is yet another one of those whiny elitist (spoilery) reviews grounded in the belief that Superhero genre does not deserve critical acclaim. (#nospoilers to the best of my abilities in thread) #AvengersInfinityWar
Marvel Cinematic Universe spent 10 years building up to this point. Each layer meticulously added with characterization and intricate plot lines. They laid the ground work so well in 18 movies that when the resolution finally comes, you say, well, of course!
It IS character driven, because the #MCU has always been about the characters. It wouldn't have succeeded otherwise. Even the ensemble movies are all about individual characters.

Hey, you know what would be a totally original way to prepare for #AvengersInfinityWar? A ranked list of all the MCU movies thus far! Here they are, from worst to best!
18. The Incredible Hulk (2008) – There’s a reason most people forget this was even an MCU movie. It’s exactly the kind of superhero movie that made the genre such a heavy lift in the 90s and 00s, and which Iron Man so refreshingly broke away from.
17. Thor: The Dark World (2013) – A complete waste of an interesting world, not to mention Loki and Christopher Eccleston. Extra demerits for killing Thor’s mom and giving Jane Foster nothing to do.

I’m watching all of the @Marvel movies with @ThereseTheBeast, we are going in release order over the next 8 weeks leading up to #AvengersInfinityWar

Yesterday was Iron Man, we just started The Incredible Hulk now.

Updating this thread with thoughts and lists as we go #marvel
💭 Most shocking moment so far in the @Hulk 2008 is @LivTyler dating the dad from Modern Family.

Also as much as I like Edward Norton I’m just picturing @MarkRuffalo in my head and this movie is even better.
Putting @Hulk on pause to talk Iron Man.

1. I forgot how we used to talk about Marvel movies being “grounded” or “realistic” especially when it comes to color pallete and portrayal of characters or events.

The colors in Black Panther and Thor 3 have come a long way since 2008.
