Why Avengers: Endgame Was An (Almost) Perfect Film

Why Avengers: Endgame Was An (Almost) Perfect Film

Avengers: Endgame not only met all of its expectations, but now has a special place in the heart's of Marvel fans.


No film is perfect, but I feel as if Avengers: Endgame was as perfect as it could have been. The union of every character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has only been dreamt about, but somehow Marvel pulled off the most amazing series of events that was a perfect follow-up to Infinity War. Endgame was just the exact amount of un-satisfying and satisfying that left a profound impact on me.

The humor was top-notch and the nostalgia was serious. All the jokes in the movie were realistic and funny to the point where it seemed to distract the characters just enough from the pain and removed some out of the situation for the viewers to keep the movie a little light-hearted and not just dark at some points. The movie had perfectly timed nostalgia and put every scene together in a way that made the most sense. With the scenes that went back to the original Avengers and so many perfect scenes with Cap, everything was so perfect. Captain America's "Hail Hydra" line when he went back in time to retrieve the tesseract was one of the most insane and coolest lines in the whole movie and was so well-timed in a dire situation that added so much life to the movie.

The emotions were absolutely heart-wrenching. Whether it was Captain America accidentally finding himself in the office of his dream girl in 1970, or choosing to spend the rest of his life with her when he goes back in time to revert changes, Marvel did a great job of making you feel for Cap. And the whole movie is littered with scenes like this, but the one that really got me was when Black Widow sacrifices herself so that Hawkeye can survive, get the Soul Stone, and have a chance at seeing his family again. And we all know that no character can stay with a certain role forever, and that's why the sending off of Iron Man and Robert Downey was the most perfect ending that could have happened. Being introduced to his daughter, and him having to leave his family to save the universe was the best way to have him end his Marvel career. His hug with Peter Parker and his final moments before his death really hit home.

So thank you, Marvel, for bringing us one of the best and most ambitious films in history.

9 Reasons You're Still In Love With Tim Riggins In 2019

Clear eyes. Full hearts.

If you're a Friday Night Lights fan, you know very well who Tim Riggins is. And if you've never seen the show, he's basically just the bad boy football star and sensitive hottie of your dreams, all wrapped into one heart-throbbing package. If you haven't already fallen under the Tim Riggins spell, you're about to...

1. He's the star running back of the Dillon Panthers.

Basically every girl who has walked this earth has fantasized about having that cliche football relationship. No shame. #33 on the field, #1 in my heart.

2. He's actually really sensitive.

Tim Riggins may seem hard and dysfunctional on the outside, but he's really just a big softie. He's no JD McCoy, who grew up lavishly and extremely fortunate; Tim had a rough upbringing. He and his brother, Billy, had to work hard all by themselves just to stay above water, which is most likely what keeps him so grounded and humbled.

3. He loves kids.

Tim didn't even think twice about taking his neighbor under his wing when he moved in next door. And for some reason, there's just somethin' about cute boys holding babies that makes us girls swoon.

4. He's genuine and honest.

Sure, maybe he took advantage of his football-star status and slept with most of the rally girls, but once he fell in love with Lyla we saw his compassionate side. (You probably envied Lyla and maybe even hated her for a while because of it...I know I did.)

5. He knows how to have a good time.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

6. He's a family man.

Tim took the blame for his brother's crime and went to prison for it...if that's not loyalty then I don't know what is.

7. He's affectionate.

If you either hate Lyla or you want to be Lyla or a combination of the both, you are not alone.

8. He's protective.

Probably the only time you've ever wanted to be in a tornado was when you watched the episode where he shielded Julie from flying debris.

9. He's beautiful.

You're welcome for blessing you with this GIF.

May you all find your own Tim Riggins. Amen.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
