Avengers Endgame Review
Start writing a post

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!

I have been a massive Marvel fan for many years now. Every school break, my mom and I would have a Marvel marathon, starting with Iron Man and working our way up from there. It was always such a welcome escape from all the stress and work of school to settle down with some popcorn and enjoy a truly awesome cinematic experience.

Just like everyone else, I was shocked by the ending of Avengers: Infinity War. When Thanos snapped his fingers and we saw our favorite heroes disappear one by one, I was at a loss for words. So rarely in action films do we see the bad guys win, that I had no idea what was going to come next.

Fast forward a year, and it was already time for Avengers: Endgame. As excited as I was to see how the Russo brothers were going to conclude such an epic series, I also was not ready to say goodbye (and I'm still in denial about it.) The longer I held off from seeing it, the easier it was to avoid knowing how the characters wrap it up. But by Saturday, I couldn't wait anymore.

I went to an evening showing by myself to find myself in a nearly full theater. I felt an excitement unlike ever before, and that was the first time I realized what a truly special series Avengers is. When the opening Marvel sequence began, my heart leapt in my chest, similar to that feeling you get right before you're about to go down a huge hill on a roller-coaster.

The first hour of the film was definitely the slowest, in my opinion. It was during this time that I took the mandatory bathroom break (because c'mon, the film is three hours long. At some point, you're gonna have to go.) Even though it took the film a while to pick up, we got to see the Avengers at their most vulnerable. They were all trying to be okay after Thanos' snap, but the desire to defeat him was always there.

Then, the movie picks up and the rising action to the final battle ensues. I was hooked to the very end. My favorite part of the film was when all the fallen Avengers joined Cap for the final battle. When Black Panther showed up, I felt so psyched that it took all my strength not to jump out of my chair with excitement.

My biggest problem with the film was how they handled Black Widow. Iron Man's death was emotional and wrapped up the character's story beautifully. Black Widow died halfway through the movie before the big battle sequence at the end, the Avengers were sad for, like, a second, and then everybody moved on with their lives. No funeral, no wrap-up, nothing. I thought this was especially disappointing because Nat had such a good first half of the movie where she was slowly taking the place as leader of the Avengers after Thanos' snap. Very disappointing.

But, problems aside, this movie was fun and heartfelt at the same time. Time travel always makes things iffy, because it seemingly always creates plot holes and makes rules that are complicated for the audience to wrap their heads around. But still, it was fun to immerse ourselves back into the worlds of the other movies and I really enjoyed it.

So, if you haven't seen Endgame yet, prepare yourself for one last epic ride and all the feels in the world. I loved it 3000.

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!

It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
