      Ya know what kills me. The whole premise of the doctor strange might kill the universes is all based on the idea that strange is selfish enough to keep doing what he wants after the threat is contained. Despite the fact that the strange who they killed and the one infront of them right now has embodied the lesson that it's not about them. They condemn the unselfish doctor stranges while there are menaces out there in the multiverse killing other stranges.

    The concept that was most heart-breakingly wasted was the idea that Strange had a sister who he felt he couldn't save a long time ago. That should have been way more of an interesting "what if" for the multiverse. So he goes to all these multiverse locations seeing Christine and how he failed again and again to keep her, only to turn a corner in one of the universes and see his sister. Maybe she is the Dr Strange in that universe and Stephen was the one who died. But she found Kamar-Taj in a desperate effort to save her brother, tried to use the time stone and ended up needing to save the world from the consequences of her changing the timeline (imagine that being movie one for her instead). They talk and his sister wants to hear all about his life since her brother never got to live one. Strange finally admits he is not happy and does not know how to let go of needing to be the one to "hold the knife". She agrees that she feels the same and maybe part of the climactic battle could involve Strange and his sister working together and work in some scenario where Strange has to let go of control (perhaps to access some new power or something, you could still probably bring in that awesome wings of death thing because its cool and I love magic that deals with the dead). Its not perfect but it just makes me want to write my own little version of the movie with all the amazing possibilities that they didn't explore here. I would have completely replaced the Illuminati sequence with this one, even America's family trauma could then be discussed when she sees Strange getting along with his sister, no need for a stupid and lazy "memory store". So much possibility wasted in the name of fanservice... **shakes head**

      Im being dismissive when I say the multiverse concept is so limited regardless what happens and is a least convoluted time traveler plot. What if scenarios like that of the Flash Point Paradox have been done in the last 20 years.
      I liked how the Justice League handles a different timeline in the first season of the show which funny enough one of the episodes in that arch is titled Endgame. That episode btw has Steve Trevor interact with his “angel” (Wonder Woman) and once the timeline was fixed back into place you see WW going to a nursing home. The nurse guides her to a bench where Trevor looks up now much older and says “angel?!”. Talk about touching and emotional endings to ONE arch of the show.
      All I want to say is multiverse idea of his sister is already a cliche by the time the film were to ever explore it. I guess the writing would make it engaging but then again Marvel writing never really stood out past Infinity War.

    Sinister Strange would have worked better if his Christine had died, and in his grief he tried to use the Darkhold to find a way to bring her back and in doing so and failing, he began consuming other Stranges through Dreamwalking in an attempt increase his power to the point that he could bring Christine back. This would tie in better with the idea that Strange has an obsession with control as well as how much he cares for Christine, as in a world where he was powerless to stop her death he became consumed by his own need for control that he became a monster.
    In fact, instead of Strange killing Sinister Strange, he could trick him into attempting to seize Amerika from Wanda having these two monsters face off against each other while Wong rescues Chavez and then uses her power to banish Wanda and Necro(Sinister) Strange into the collapsing universe together and bring out Strange and Christine.

    Couldn't Wanda visit a universe where her other self is dead and adopt the now motherless children? Maybe one where Vision and her brother are still alive and this have her whole family back? Hell, infinite universes also means there is one where her PARENTS are still alive as well. Couldn't she have done that instead?

    • Michael Bates

      @LadyDoomsinger Yes, the issue is how her madness was written. There are a few problems, one is that she has used spells in her most recent outing (WandaVision) that would have fixed a lot of the issues she is having, and she admits that the kids she fell in love with were constructs she created. Which means she can just recreate them in a hex, one that she voluntarily makes instead. In WandaVision, she creates a slowly expanding bubble around a town in the US that warps reality, as is her power. She created this hex accidently from the anguish of her losing Vision, with the general idea of it being that she was in hardcore denial of what she was doing to the citizens of the US that got brainwashed by her hex. Even in this movie, we see her inside a hex she created when we first see her, after the dreaming sequence. This means she can alter reality within it, such as recreating the kids she made in WandaVision that she originally fell in love with. All of this is ignoring the fact that the kids were created as a byproduct of her living a happy life with Vision, and the movie just ignores the core and main reason any of this is happening in the first place. Another issue is the nature of infinity that the movie doesn't seem to understand. If the writers, and by extension the movie, understood infinity, then Wong or Dr Strange would have asked Wanda about the universe she's going to. Her ultimate goal is to go to a world where her kids are real, and she can go and take the place of the kids' mother. She doesn't go looking for a world where Vision is alive and well, the kids are there, and her parents and brother didn't die as collateral in previous movies, but instead she just goes for the kids she incidentally made the first time. Another thing that Wanda never clarifies is how she would take the place of the Wanda in the other universe. She gets asked directly how she's going to do it, but she doesn't answer. She just stands quietly with a slightly distressed look on her face. You could take from that shot that she is willing, but doesn't want, to kill a version of herself to get to that version of her kids. Of course, this all just goes against the idea of infinity again. She can just go to a world where that universe's Wanda died, leaving her kids with no parents. Then the villain Wanda that we know from this movie would jump in and take the place of the now dead Wanda. And thanks to us dealing with infinity, she can just go to a version of her kids who are so desperate and alone that they would be willing to immediately accept the villain Wanda. That example doesn't need to go exactly like I said, but the thing about infinite multiverses is that the universe I used as an example would exist, and there would be an infinite number of tiny permutations to that specific example.
      There's a bunch more reasons, but these are the two that I think are the biggest. This is already quite a wall of text, so I'll try stop now and just reiterate: her going crazy isn't an issue, it's how she went mad and all of the tools and abilities she has at her disposal to get her what she wants before she went mad, and the people around her that are trying to stop don't bring any of these other options up after she went mad.

    • LadyDoomsinger
      LadyDoomsinger Ай бұрын +1

      I don't think her being crazy is the problem - a character loosing their mind and doing horrible stuff in the belief that it is their only option - or best option isn't a bad direction for an antagonist - if done right, it can even be incredibly tragic and emotional to watch the character slowly descend into complete psychopathy because of their choices, fears, and misunderstandings (see Arcane, for example) - I haven't watched the movie, so I can only speculate, that the issue with Wanda comes down to *how* her madness was written, not the concept of her going mad.

      It's funny because they really tried to give America Chavez (I still can't believe that's her fucking name) this sympathetic back story but in reality, everything about the way she's written makes her unlikable and non-relatable. One of the very first scenes she has with Doctor Strange has her insulting him to his face in a foreign language (not long after he saves her life and buys her a meal, no less)... What part of that interaction was supposed to make me like this girl??

      No effort is made or thought is given to intelligently and productively harness her powers by anyone, including all the Dr. Strange's that she knew across the multiverse.
      Then it turns out to be ridiculously easy to do, once the film needs her to get them back to their originating Universe. _Believe in yourself._ 🤣 What is the 1/2 hour over for this weeks shit-com episode?
      The worst part for me though is that Wanda could just ask America "help me find my children" - but the writer cheats with bullshit dialogue meant to persuade you that what Wanda wants means Chavez must die. Cuz....uhm.
      The best thing about this film and Quantum Mania is that they are failing so hard that MCU may have no choice but to change direction.

    I love how the members of the Alt-Avengers include two of the smartest people in the whole world and they are literally standing there being like "OK, 4 of you go and defeat her. I'll stay here for no reason instead of helping you by stopping her for a long enough time for you to beat her up. Also, don't forget to tell her what's your powers are and how she can defeat you. Great plan"

      @LadyDoomsinger Not out of fear and ignorance but because he destroyed an entire or possibly multiple universe(s) to save theirs and he was corrupted by the darkhold. And they can't be that dumb. They won't even win any battle if they told everyone what they could do.

      I haven't watched the movie, so I don't know this; but, weren't the "Alt-Avengers" supposed to be incompetent, arrogant, and basically steamrolled by Wanda? Wasn't that how they were written, specifically as a punchline? I mean, based on what MauLer says here, they seem to serve as secondary antagonists in the story, being an obstacle for Dr. Strange to overcome. They literally murdered their universe's Dr. Strange out of fear and ignorance, and spent the entire scene before talking to Dr. Strange about how they're so amazingly powerful, morally righteous, and more than a match for Scarlet Witch. I dunno, just seems to me like they were deliberately written to be dumb - but I suppose no character can ever really be smarter than the person writing them, so it might just have been accidental.

    The problem I have with Doctor Strange is that it's very hard to be compelled by a hero with immeasurable powers, powers with no real rules or boundaries which the writers really respect. We literally see the protagonist anatomically deconstruct an entire bus with a wave of his hand, and turn water into wine ten minutes into the film. It's hard to then feel worry for the safety of said protagonist in any action scenes of the film, especially against something with no other recognisable power other than being a big flying invisible octopus.

      I completely disagree with your premise. An overpowered character can be presented challenges outside of combat. Such as being unable to save people or something well beyond their own range. (Such as not being able to actually get to a villain destroying everything you love, people dying of something your power doesn't cover, your power corrupting your own perceptions and morality over time, or world altering events that one man can't stop - such as wars, plagues, etc.) Overpowered characters can 100% be done in a compelling way, these writers just have no idea how to do it.

    I think my favorite bad thing about the movie is how shit just compounds.
    First scene I look at this new character, who does LITERALLY nothing. They're chased, she's not hiding, she's not giving advice or meaningful observations, she literally just stands there and looks at things.
    So, due to that stupid standing around, I started paying more attention to her as a character and then you notice the somewhat blatant message. She's named "America", uses some Spanglish for like 1 minute of a 2 hour movie, has some lgbt flag and two mothers, just for the sake of it. None of these factors are followed up on or deepened or made natural; she's essentially just carrying big signs of "look at this" with nothing to back it up.
    What made that even worse, is the other multiverse movie. Where you also have a gay character, but she's an actual human. She has emotions and the relationship is just real. Her partner isn't thrown into one scene to garner sympathy points from a demographic. Fuck, that girlfriend isn't even an integral character in the movie, she barely has any lines and STILL that relationship seems more fitting and real than the "look, two moms, guys AND she has the flag on her stuff? PRAISE ME" shtick the marvel movie pulls.
    The whole movie has this segmented feel where you as a viewer literally look through all the effects and can practically see the screenplay. "She stands there, because she has to be in danger in a minute. Steals the ring so they can film in a non-destroyed area and include some gimme a photo extra. Superheroes stand around and watch each other get slaughtered, until it's their turn to go in."
    And it all gets bogged down with two concepts that are so fantastical, it's hard enough to have one make coherent sense. But trying to combine "magic" and "multiverses", while also trying to cinematize the two subjects? Just showing off magic, because it looks cool? It's two fucking concepts that aren't explained or even explainable in the first place all strung together with a story that is so incredibly weak and full of holes, that no one can actually be invested in this.
    It's got some great visuals and soundtrack. Shit, I even liked some of the stuff that was criticized pretty harshly here: The little joke regarding Black Bolt's name seemed like a fitting quip in the moment. Akin to adapting "it's a-me, Mario" into anything else, just a harmless bit of fun. But the story just ruins it all.

      That's called virtual signaling.
      James Cameron has made 5 billion dollars off of this, using CG versions of American, Polynesian and African indigenous peoples - to play *Get Out* with them, where white people can turn them into "avatars".
      The lack of any deeper meaning or genuine respect is key because it makes the insincere 'message' non threatening.
      Disagree? Look at how she is motivated to find her "MOMs" until at the end of the film she magically gets the power to do so......and completely forgets about them, as do we...because the film and the audience doesn't really give a shix.

      @RanMouri82 That’s not “earlier failings”, that’s character consistency. Her growth was mostly linked to other people, she never really seemed to express wanting to be a hero just because she thought it was the right thing to do. She just ended up working with the good guys, and her relationship with Vision brought out her better side.
      By this point she’s lost her country, her brother, Vision, Cpt America, Black Widow, and saving the world didn’t really give her much of anything. She didn’t fight Thanos to save the world, she fought him because he was coming for Vision and eventually killed him. It’s no wonder her previous vices were cranked up to 11 when she met a Devil-like entity, powering her up and promising her things.

    The line "Have you ever had that dream where your falling as if you've been pushed off a really tall building? That was probably me" never made sense to me. Because Sinister Strange can't portal to other universes, he has to use the Darkhold to dreamwalk. Which means that he can only possess the body of another Strange. So to kill that Strange, he can't be "pushed off from a really tall building", but more "walk off a really tall building".
    But no, the writers sacrificed that little detail just to make the incel bad guy just a little more edgy.

    They could change the tentacruel cyclops boss fight pretty easily: it’s the first act, so there’s no tension needed. Strange could see America, suspect her because the monster is chasing her. He calls wong so he can chase her for questioning. Strange then uses the anti invisibility spell and traps the monster in the mirror dimension and defeats it with expertise, showing why he’s the best saucerer. He meets up with wong, who has America and the movie continues as normal

    I will never get over the fact Vision gets completely forgotten in this. The entire point of WandaVision was Wanda lost Vision and this is the life she wanted them to have. The children were a byproduct of that. They were never the entire point and she knew they weren't real even though both of them loved them dearly. The fact that there isn't a scene where Paul Bettany walks into the house she's terrorizing and Wanda has the realization that "I completely forgot about my husband, the ENTIRE reason I did all of this in the first place" is poor writing at best and character erasure at worst.

      Waldrons writing is incredibly shallow, more like a boy writing than an adult.
      He misses completely the deeper issues of the nature of love and loss and having to let go.
      The problem is that Wanda’s character grew emotionally in Wanda Vision.
      She let the children go by choice. You can’t just erase that, and use a plot McGuffin as an excuse to override her character growth.
      That amounts to shitting on the previous chapters of the story.
      Yet he needed to ERASE that growth in order to make her a cartoon witch.

      It's been said before that the worse a writer is, the more you can see the intent behind their work. I call it "seeing the uncreative process through the plot holes."
      Given established power levels, there is no in-universe rain for Wanda to be able to so easily eviscerate the Illumiwhati. That she does isn't just a plot hole, it is a universe-destroying black hole. The only explanation it's ameta one; Michael Waldren, that that disgusting, obsequiously gynocentric fraud, his favorite Marvel character is Scarlett Witch, and so (among other things), devised scenarios of her all but effortlessly murdering without consequence, no matter how impossible, just to make her look cool.
      It's the exact same reason Hack Snyder had Superman(?) beat the snot out of all the other heroes in Justice League; Superman is obviously his favorite DC superhero, and so he devised a a situation to facilitate that fight, no matter how nonsensical and contrived it was/is.
      These are our modern myths and legends, and they're in the hands of maligned, maladroit children, smacking them together like stolen toys.

    Nothing ever guaranteed that Wanda seeing her scared and traumatized children herself wouldn’t just make matters worse. There was never any indication that she wouldn’t go Tai Lung and just wreck everything the minute her sole objective and whole reason for existing in this film failed right before her eyes. She could’ve easily swung the other way and become extremely vengeful to a ridiculous extent out of pure spite. Guess the writers got lucky that didn’t happen.

    An excellent and nuanced review of an irredeemably flawed film that genuinely wounded what little affection I had left for Marvel and Disney. Disaffection is now the rule. Lastly, I recognize these longer reviews demand a great deal of analysis, preparation, and editing. So, I thank you for the time you've invested and look eagerly to future reviews, good and bad, of upcoming films. As a postscript: maybe all those spirits that first attacked Dr. Strange were the collective Ghosts of Good Film Scripts Past trying to prevent another frame of this film from proceeding. Clearly, they failed.

      Sadly that is one of the very few plot points in this trainwreck that isn't a plothole... It's worse. Because the movie gives us an explanation, and its insanely bad.
      You see. There was no way for MCU main universe Dr Strange to see a future where they use the Book of Vishanti... Because he didn't believe the book existed. And since he, as the Sorcerer Supreme, was the only person that COULD know about the book. There is no possible future where they used it.
      So its not a plothole, since there IS a reason. But the reason is that Dr Strange, a man so obsessed with reading he literally does it while he sleeps, while using the time stone, which gives him literally as much time as he could possibly need for said reading... Didn't think to read the ONE, SINGULAR, HYPER-IMPORTANT book that is passed on as a badge of office when you become sorcerer supreme.
      Literally, the only reason they didn't Thanos Snap Thanos, is because Strange was too moronic to read the most impirtant book he could have possibly been given.

    The thing about the memory store is that, it isnt necessarily a terrible idea, IF you have the characters lead into it with dialogue. For example,
    Strange and America are walking, they shouldnt be but whatever, and Strange asks America how she ended up spiralling through the multiverse. America is initially a bit shy to the idea, but then she sees the memory store, and grabs a couple dollars out of a passerby's wallet. Strange scolds her, but she explains that she needs it for an important reason.
    She goes into the store with Strange following her in and pays the money for a few "tokens" on a machine, and selects a memory to replay, that being the one where she looses her parents, and asks Strange to step into one of the booths. He does, and then Strange, and by extension the audience, is seeing the memory from a young America's perspective. In this version, the thing that triggers her portal is one of the monsters Wanda sent after her. The memory fades out, and now Strange understands what happened.
    If you feel like keeping this element in, this first person experience of the memory could give Strange the idea that he could use her power, because he can pinpoint the sensation of triggering it as something similar to his sorcerey. After this, Strange apologizes.
    If you really need to show the scene where Strange recieves the watch from Christine, use the following. Else, end scene. Strange asks America why she hasn't settled down to try and figure out how to use her power. America says that every second she isnt looking for her moms is a second they may be in danger. She'd rather jump randomly and chance finding them than waste maybe years trying to figure out how to use it. Strange points out that this is irrational, as learning how to control it could allow her to just jump to them immediately instead of just hoping she ends up there. America retorts that loving somebody makes you do irrational things.
    Strange pauses and looks down at his watch, thinking about Christine. The machine dings, as it has cued up another memory. Strange notices and tries to leave, but America notices and asks what memory he cued up, and he awkwardly says its nothing. America then notices that the time on the broken watch is the same as the time on the memory. She links the two, and runs into the booth.
    We then see the memory from Strange's perspective, where he has dropped the nice new watch, and is apologizing over and over to Christine. Christine just laughs, and says it's fine. He already has a cell phone that shows the time, its not like she was giving it to him for a practical purpose. She just thought it would make a nice accessory, and being broken like this helps it stand out. Strange thanks her for the gift, and the memory fades out.

    Wasn't it originally intended for Nightmare to be the main villain.
    The whole first bits with the monsters are so hilariously stretched to be under Wanda, that seems like a huge section along with all the dreamwalking/dreams being different universes that they stamped Wanda on to for no reason but not out of character for someone like Nightmare.
    Might also be the lack of a multiversal exploration as that too is probably a repackage of the dream universes.
    I'm curious to how much of the movie is actually a reskinned plot of what they advertised ages ago and how much of that was done before they canned that idea.

    This comment is gonna be rather long but I wanna add something in regards to the the incredibly convenient powers that these characters show and how incredibly bad they are at using them, but the one I´d like to talk about is the teleportation rings and how, in the right hands, it could easily be the most powerful skill in the entire movie. For this, I´ll compare it to two other series, Mob psycho 100 season 2 and jujutsu kaisen, because both of these manage to make their respective versions of this power an absolute menace even though, in concept, they are miles behind in terms of power and usage from the version shown in this movie. From this point onward, there will be minor spoilers regarding these shows (both are really good, so for anyone reading this, go check them out, even if you´re not an anime fan), but these will only talk about the powers and some specific uses shown in the series, no names nor any spoiler for the plot. Alright, starting with Mob psycho 100, one of the villains has the more traditional ability of teleporting himself and anything and anyone in direct contact with him. Seems simple enough, but the way It´s used and shown definitely puts into perspective just how dangerous it is, because the teleportation is instantaneous, with esentially no way to tell where he´ll appear or what he will do once he teleports. The only real weakness it shows is from the user itself, because his movements are simplistic and, once you see the pattern, predictable. The technique is in no way invincible, but powerful regardless (the comparision to the movie will come after the technique review of jujutsu kaisen). Now moving on to the second show we have Jujutsu kaisen, where there are a lot rules in the universe, but all we need to know is that the technique in this case is triggered by clapping the user´s hands. This allows him to change places with anything and anyone as long as they have "cursed energy" (to make it simple to understand, it´s basically chakra from naruto or ki from dragon ball). But the skill doesn´t end there, he can force two other individuals to change place as well. It´s certainly more complicated than the other version, but nothing too complicated, which is why it is so powerful due to one simple fact, clapping his hands doesn´t mean he is going to activate his technique, so he can easily fool his opponents, not only that, there is no indication as to who or what will change place, so the mind games that can come from that allows the user to have full control over the battlefield, and again, the technique is far from all mighty. If the user is an idiot and does the same thing all the time, it will also become predictable, so it´s all in the intelligence of the character using it.
    Now let´s see what the teleportation rings can do in the movie, they can; teleport the user to any place of their choosing regardless of distance and only limited to any previous knowledge the user has; teleport anyone and anything completely against their will, again, distance or energy is not a factor here; change size to accomodate the object being teleported; change the trajectory and momentum of whatever it´s passing through the portal; they can also be interlinked with any other portal created by the user. At this point it is almost undeniable that this degree of power is light years away from what we´ve seen thus far, there are no requirements that anyone with access to these thing would not have, there is no need for the character to sense some sort of energy or to be stronger than the threath they are facing in order to teleport them, and due to the ability to change size combined with the other power of change in momentum and trajectory, there is basically no way to tell what the hell is gonna come out of the portal, it could be a truck, but that could be a trick to hide the little portal that has a bullet, and there goes your head. But that´s not all they can do, because their other ability is infinitely more destructive than anything else here, and that is the ability to cut anything that comes through the portal. Imagine if any of the other versions had something even remotely close to this, they would be damn near invinsible, because no matter what the enemy does, all they´d need to do is to create a portal in front of the opponent, create one below them, beside them, wherever, and chop off anything that comes close to them, they could use them offensively, defensively, as support, whatever. The point is, if you have two sorcerers with this level of power, then wanda should stand no chance against them, one of them could teleport america to any place of the planet, hell the universe, the other one could set up an infinite number of portal traps, or both of them could use their powers, and with two highly intelligent and wise portal users, constantly playing mind tricks and using every other weapon in their arsennal, the main threath should not be able to even react to what´s happening.
    So yeah, this is what happens when you want to do something cool looking but don´t bother thinking about all the possible ramifications and plot holes that their decisions could bring, and this is only scratching the surface of all the stupid choices regarding magic and powers in this movie.

    So, wait. The writers use the moral ambiguity defense on Wanda's murderous, premeditated actions because...well, she's grieving so it's "relatable." But when any of the Dr. Stranges do something morally ambiguous (or break some arbitrary rule set long ago) for the sake of trying to save multiple realities - often requiring a split second decision with attacks bombarding them - it's treated like they are reprehensible for even considering it.

    Great breakdown. The only thing I can say is they did a crap job of explaining America Chavez's power and origin, which got reconned in the comics anyway. She's from outside the multiverse which is why she is 1 of 1. Her parents are too, so they can't cause a universe to destroy itself. She's also super strong, which is why she can break the cage. Whether that stems from magic or not is interesting if you think the braces should stop it, but they make it sound like her strength (and ability to fly) just come from her and is separate from her portal magic.

      Shang Chi gave up fighting for possibly longer than he had been trained while his sister went on to run a criminal under ground all the while honing her skills and HE still ends up saving her and their mothers homeland.
      Falcon and Winter Solider didn't make them idiots to me. They seemed to have fairly understandable thought processes and defined character motivations for where they are in the MCU
      Do I think it became a little preachy and on the nose sure, but the red headed criminal still looses and isn't treated any more or less fair based on her gender.
      Hawkeye is definitely where I see your statement about it is unfounded. Clint has potentially more character resolution in his show than Kate Bishop has. He comes to terms with his close friends death and the guilt surrounding it while also ridding the world of the Ronin, a vigilante so cruel and violent that crime dropped in ares he was in. A character, also, that he made mistakes as and the consequences of those mistakes played out across the series. Kate was involved in it but she went from annoying kid to trusted ally. This was not the Kate Bishop show.

      ​@St Chef In the same way everyone with superhuman strength NEEDS to have a higher level of physical durability or their strength is unusable, mutants and inhumans of high calibre rarely if ever. Have no pre-existing or inherent immunity, heck even resistances to the destructice or negative aspects, of their own power. Otherwise he'd have killed himself the second he used his powers in any way. Black bolt was BORN with his powers, if he's not immune to that same power, he shouldn't have grown into adulthood and would be just dead since infancy.

    In regards to the commentary made between Dr. Wiss AKA Dr. No one cares, losing a pet, be it a cat or a gold fish or what have you, it is just as hard as losing as losing a loved one. If that is all the chap had and he returned from being dust only to find that the only thing he loved and presumably loved him in return was gone, then yes its a rather somber moment. God bless Marvel and its empathy when making jokes out this situation

      And even worse those beloved family members died expressly because he was dusted and thus failed to provide for them whilst presumably leaving them locked in a house with no opportunities for food or water. They died a slow, agonizing death all whilst probably feeling abandoned by the one constant in their life.

      It was a perfect end to the Infinity Saga.
      Then Feige and Disney reasoned - let's keep going while we lose all the talent and see if that matters - The Russos, Marcus/McFeely/RDJ/Johanson/Evans....plus Gunn, Derrickson and now Boseman (RIP) all gone...
      Instead we have the Rick and Morty Universe - and oh look the audience actually notices that we are peeing in the kook-aid! How embarassing!

      @Superbrainz Yes, and it is a very common disease throughout Hollywood. That supervillain of the Sorceress in "Suicide Squad" is another example of a godlike villain nerfed down at the end just so weak heroes can win.

      @MrEmpireBuilder On Drinker's quantamania videos, someone was mentioning Kang's powers and it really seems like he should've sweeped as he had time powers, could create portals, could redirect energy and had energy beams that instantly vaporized the fodder but apparently were just a mere pushback to the ant family which is weird since scott in the first movie made darn sure to avoid getting hit by bullets and yellowjackets energy blasts in the first movie.
      Heck the first movie treated attacks in the first movie like artillery blasts to scott and he had to keep avoiding attacks that also vaporized his ants so why is ant man now tanking blasts and punches from a guy whose apparently a multiverse level threat. The cope from mcu fans for why kang didnt vaporize scott is insane.

      That's the really tragic thing about all this.
      As a gamer, most of us know how power levels and tiers up properly.
      Like we know the minor magic that can be achieved vs major magics. And these... fucking. normie. writers.... have no idea how to write a proper hero or villain with powers that make sense. So then you have people with abilities that seem super strong... and then later on, you wonder why they don't use those powers all the time. And worse, they forget they have those abilities and now you're stuck nerfing them so the story can happen.

    Even though this is close to 6 hours long, I love your critical analysis of movies. Your voice is easy on the ears and it sounds like the voice I'd probably hear on an audiobook I would listen to. I tried to listen to another youtube tell me in 3 hours why they hate The Lion King remake but it sounded like nails on a charlkboard or their balls hadn't dropped yet and I couldn't get past the first 10 minutes of their review.

    OOF! Yeah they really needed to set some rules for the powers of The Scarlet Witch AND for Doctor Strange's powers. The fact they didn't breaks this film in SO MANY ways. Jeezus... Oda does far better at writing Trafalgar Law's broken Room abilities in One Piece than A WHOLE TEAM did writing Wanda's and Strange's magic powers... Not to mention all the other stuff that's wrong with this movie! O.O Ugh....

    Wait why does Strange keep trying to steal Americas powers in time sensitive situations when its clear that it takes a lit of time to actually do. Wanda spends several hours siphoning Americas power only to end up with exactly none of it.
