Normally, my multiplexes will play a wide variety of movies that I get to see. Just like Thanos, Avengers wiped out almost any sign of other movies. The remaining ones are the big ones I've seen and even those were inconvenient times. There were screenings for Avengers almost every ten minutes.

Go see "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote" from Terry Gilliam. You won't regret it.

This has been happening since Harry Potter movies or Twlight or Dark Knight or other Marvel movies. Just saying w/o the big movies, they wouldn't still be in business at al.

The multiplexes near me had done a good job of giving a lot of screens for those tentpoles, but still leaving screens for some of the other choice. I just notice this time, most of those other movies were taken down and the number of showtimes doubled. I was there for the other Avengers last year and they didn't wipe out that many alternate titles.

Well that's true -- I mean they knew it would be the biggest movie, so they went all out.

Hell, remember the old old days like the 80s when a movie might be a slow hit and actually in theaters for months... now movie is like 3-6 months and it's out to rent or buy...

There were a lot of movies I wanted to see and I was stunned that they were only there for one week. Less than a week. The evening showings were all cut in favor of the massive rollout. I wish I had been a writer during the 90s when it was the Spec generation.

It was okay. INFINITY WAR was the only Avengers movie I liked because it was actually dark, had stakes, the characters weren't impervious, and Thanos is a great, layered villain. ENDGAME was predictable as usual.


Best part was easily fat Chris Hemsworth/Thor. Absolutely hilarious and a true scene stealer.

Of the 4 Avengers movie, Infinity War was the best as Thanos was the clear main character and you could follow his journey from Milan to Minsk. In fact, I think I was almost on his side.
