  1. Really enjoyed that. I would have liked

    Detective Pikachu movie

    That’s good but this....this makes even better.

    Chernobyl (HBO/Sky)

    Yes. A dose of 500 roentgens per hr is lethal for humans; the guy touching the piece of graphite core would have been exposed to approx 10,000 to 20,000 roentgens. You’re basically melting from the inside out, even without touching stuff.
  4. It’s an odd read. Some stuff is super-boring and I find my attention wandering, then it’ll suddenly jump to a chapter about how you can take a random pic of the rainforest canopy and be able to tell if humans have ever occupied that space and what causes them to depart. I picked it up 2nd hand so for £2, absolutely worth it.
  5. Somewhat related but I'm reading a book just now, 'The World Without Us' which examines how quickly Earth would "revert" to a natural state if all humans were to vanish tomorrow. Some of the stuff is eye-opening. For instance, New York City would have some skyscrapers standing for the next few centuries but the subway system would be completely flooded within a month without no humans around and most of the N-S avenues would be actual rivers within a few years. So the general shabby-chic approach to a post-Snap world, as depicted in the film, is not too bad.
  6. Apparently the ending has been leaked (description of, not actual footage) and is being seeded all over the internet by the usual suspects so be careful of spoilers in Youtube vids titles, Reddit, Twitter etc. Basically, turn off your internet if you want to stay unspoiled until the end. Fucking people, man.
  7. Yes. But she's hoping to pass it off as Euron's, as long as he's around/useful. But as @Commander Jameson points out, Tyrion may have undone that.
  8. Nanomachines, son. (As he built the gauntlet, I assume he was able to "absorb" the Stones from it and into his suit very quickly and without Thanos noticing. A quick flashback showing exactly how that happened would have probably worked as I'm sure there were loads of people asking how exactly he did it.)
  9. Yes. In "our" 2023 MCU, the infinity stones have been destroyed. Given what the Ancient One said about the stones creating the flow of time and protecting the universe from "threats" it would appear that Thanos has left our universe vulnerable to these threats. Which future Phases will no doubt build on and/or introduce new characters (i.e Mutants) through the effects of the Snap/disapperance of the Stones. I assume that the functioning time machine needed the combined efforts of Stark, Prof Hulk, Rocket etc to get it up and running and now that Avengers HQ is destroyed that they can easily say "Oh we can't make another time machine." And the portable pad they use for Cap at the end? "It's broke." I don't expect we'll see time travel used in the MCU again, unless it's from another source.
  10. Because we’ve argued enough about the timeline, here’s a Q&A with the Russo’s where they straight up confirm what happened with Cap and the return of the Stones. https://www.reddit.com/r/marvelstudios/comments/bj0it4/joe_russos_qa_about_the_plot_of_avengers_endgame/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app TLDR
  11. When was it confirmed Cap knew about Tony’s parents? I always thought it was in Civil War so this wouldn’t work.
  12. Yep but we said that about Spider-Man once too...
  13. Just burst out laughing thinking of this again. Great stuff.
  14. What can I say that's not already been said up-thread? As a shake-up of the status quo and a farewell to the old guard of the MCU? Loved it. Insane action in the last act which I'll rewatch a million times at home. As a standalone film? I thought it was pretty dis-jointed in places, especially compared to the relentless, efficient 'Infinity War' but when it delivers character beat after beat I can forgive some of the rough stuff. Loved how the opening act subverted all expectations. Downey Jnr, all Lt Dan, was great. As was the Build a Bear joke. Ok, we lost and are mad as hell, let's go get him. Shit, what do we do now? Shout out to A Rat, hero of the Universe. Lang's reunion with Cassie was genuinely touching. Rudd was a real star in this, not just for coming up with the Time Heist. Prof Hulk. Liked him, didn't love him. Like others, really wanted Hulk to just lose his shit at least once and wreck fools. Thor - yes, Hemsworth was playing it big and broad but so what? That's great fun! And when he needed to bring real emotion, like meeting his Mum or cracking up when Thanos' name was mentioned, he did. Another MVP for me. Also, lol at the power of thunder braiding his beard and Korg getting bullied online. Hawkeye opening was brutal. The Ronin stuff, not so much. And that haircut, ooft. Time travel plan. In theory, I loved it. In reality, it was just fine. Not even touching all the rules around it because I've a headache already. Overall, it was less fun that I was expecting but the past encounters (Stark Dad, Peggy, StarLord were all great) BW bit didn't really land for me and two female stars getting offed in the same way, two films in a row? Not great. Should have been Hawkeye. 2014 Thanos was a right cunt. Getting the Stones really mellowed him, universal genocide aside. Would have liked the last act to take place somewhere other than a smoking crater but I get it. I didn't love the Wakandan battlefield in IW either so who know, maybe I'm just hard to please. Trinity fight against Thanos was awesome. Glad Cap got some of the best bits after getting short thrift in IW. Thor's "I knew it!" was brilliant. All the Nebula stuff was great, A+ work from Gillan with what can't be an easy role. Dr Strange! Shit, better nerf him, chuck a river at him. Capt Marvel! Shit, better nerf her, have her disappear until later. Cap finally says it. Thank fuck. Goosebumps moment. That headbutt tho. A++. I am Iron Man. As soon as Morgan appeared it was as inevitable as Thanos. Still choked up a bit. Didn't look like a good way to go out. Cap finally getting his life. Outstanding. Deserved. Yes, we'll argue over how he did it forever until Disney+ or a subsequent film address it but I don't care. Surprised Sam got the shield over Bucky but glad. "We all know who's in charge." "Me. " "Of course. Of course.........*whispers* Of course." Biggest laugh of the night. Can't wait for GotG3 now, after hating the 2nd. Perfect last shot. Overall, loved most of it, some small gripes but an almost perfect wrap up. Fully expect my son to be taking his kids to Phase 12 or whatnot of these films. They're going to run and run and run.
