There are no words that quite describe how excited and simultaneously terrified I am to watch it, and while I’ve spent the past eleven years building up to this moment, I still don’t think I’m ready.
The second I sit down in the cinema for my midnight screening, I want to be in another world for three and bit hours and if there’s one film that can do that, it’s Avengers: Endgame.
With that in mind, even the most powerful of forces have their equal and opposite forces, and for a great film, they come in the form of nightmare co-viewers.
I’m very particular about who I go to the cinema with and more often than not, I’ll go alone. That’s why I have a lot of sympathy for Kessa, the person who tweeted their rules for watching Avengers: Endgame with them…
Rules if you’re watching Avengers: Endgame with me:
– We will be seated at least 15 minutes before the movie starts.
– Don’t ask me anything because you should’ve watched recaps like a smart person.
– There will be no unnecessary talking or chewing during the movie. If you talk and I miss something important, I will hit you with my shoe.
– You will cry, laugh and gasp at appropriate times.
– Take it easy with your drink because there will be no bathroom breaks.
– At the end of the movie, we will sit and wait until the credits have finished.
– After we leave the theatre, we will walk to our cars and ponder the events that unfolded in silence.
– We will discuss our thoughts and feelings about the movie on the following day when I’m no longer an emotional wreck.
I say I have sympathy with her; this is absolutely the sort of thing I agree with, but not something I would ever tweet. I may mention it on the way to the cinema with my friend but it’s already implicit. He gets it.
Also I’ve given him a list of the important MCU films to watch beforehand so he should be fine.
