"Endgame" Is The Best Marvel Movie To Date
Start writing a post

It's everywhere. The film we have all been waiting for since we watched as half of the world's population turned to dust before our eyes in last year's "Avengers: Infinity War." As audiences continue to come out in droves to witness the greatest film of the year, I am here to explain why this final film in this phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the best of its kind.

1. We are reminded of where it all begin with the original six Avengers 

The Avengers

After the villainous Thanos snapped his fingers and turned half of the world's living things to ash, the cast of beloved characters had been significantly reduced. Among the survivors were none other than the original six Avengers: Captain America, Iron Man, The Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye, and Thor. While every major team-up movie since 2012's The Avengers has included the original six in some way, their connection in this final installment of the Avengers series is more powerful. United by grief, driven by revenge and purpose, the original six and their iconic dynamic make Endgame a force to be reckoned with.

2. We are reminded of some of the MCU's greatest moments 

Captain America

If there is one thing that Marvel loves to do with its movies, especially its big team-up ones, it finds ways to connect the past to the present. Whether it's by bringing back old characters we haven't seen in a while or including a running joke — or even giving us literal glimpses of past films — Marvel ensures that its biggest blockbusters are treats for its loyal audiences. "Endgame" is no exception to this trend, full of powerful moments — both moving and comical — that helps it transcend being just another superhero movie.

3. We see the culmination of our favorite characters' arcs 

Iron Man

With such a big movie like "Endgame" marking the end of the MCU as we know it now, it can be easy to fear that some of our favorite characters might die. Of course, that isn't to say everyone will make it out without a scratch, but the most important thing to remember about this film is that it marks an end, not necessarily a death. We've known most of these characters for years, seen them in countless movies, and with "Endgame," their arcs will come to the completion that best suits their storyline.

4. The score and cinematography make "Endgame" a breathtaking masterpiece 

Avengers: Endgame

Cinephiles may criticize big blockbuster films like Marvel's for being too flashy or comical, not serious enough or not artistic enough. While some critiques may be valid in certain circumstances, "Avengers: Endgame" ensures that this generational icon of a film is something worth watching in every way. With a captivating score throughout the whole film, as well as powerful shots expertly placed within it, "Endgame" is guaranteed to take your breath away.

5. It is the most emotional Marvel movie yet 


Superhero movies always have a way of motivating us, sending our adrenaline through the roof with the fight scenes and powerful messages they entail. "Avengers: Endgame" is no exception to this, and in fact, it goes above and beyond what any of us could expect. The film is motivating and heartbreaking, cheerful and sorrowful. Full of witty one-liners and bittersweet scenes, it is expertly crafted to create an emotional masterpiece of a film.

6. It brings you closer to the story than ever before  

With the help of all the reasons I've listed above, "Avengers: Endgame" transcends any typical blockbuster movie. It is an immersive, dynamic film with an emotionally-tuned story. It is dedicated to the fans, a tribute to the past eleven years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After 22 films, Marvel needed an exceptional ending to this phase of its franchise, and "Avengers: Endgame" accomplishes that goal with flying colors.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
