Gee, no two star reviews allowed on Amazon?

I got this when I attempted to add a review to Amazon’s page for “Avengers: The Infinity War”.

This product currently has limitations on submitting reviews. There can be a number of reasons for this, including unusual reviewing activity.

Well, that will be my last attempt to add a review on anything on Amazon.  If I can’t review something when I want then I won’t play that game when it suits Amazon.

So, since I have my own blog and hence my own soapbox; Ta Da!  My review of “Avengers: The Infinity War”. 

Two stars,  One star now because I’m ticked.

It starts from (I assume) some other previous Marvel movie left off.  The opening scene is the end of a battle, Thor, the Thunder God, has been given a haircut and lost an eye.  Thanos (The Big Bad) is strutting and gloating and I didn’t have any idea what was going on.  Then over two hours later the whole movie ends with a cliffhanger. And the (intended to be) ominous, “Thanos will be back” message on the screen.   So apparently the entire movie you just watched is meaningless.

Fill in the rest with random characters wandering in and out of scenes set (literally) at opposite ends of the universe.  Except for one actresses character who ‘Wanda’s’  in and out of scenes. CGI and Cinematography are amazing and should be since that is most of the two hundred million dollar production cost of this POS.  There is zero explanation about the identity, powers or  names of most of the twenty or thirty heroes and villains striding/flying/jumping/transporting in and out of the action.  I guess if you haven’t been taking notes during the twenty previous Marvel Superhero movies then you are SOL.

It was a another hot, humid day and I sat back for two and a half hours with a couple of beers but frankly it was a waste of time.  If the AC at my gym wasn’t broken I’d rather have been doing that.

Hollywood really is broken.   Oh! I almost forgot.  They seem to have redesigned Captain America’s costume.  No American Flag motif.  That figures.

    I’m guessing we go to the same gym (Weymouth? PF?).
    Anyway, a friend of mine had this same conversation with me yesterday, with a slightly different review.
    He agrees that you need to have seen the previous movies to have a clue as to wtf was going on. He did and loved the last one.
    But he’s a geek so it almost doesn’t count.
    I saw the movie and wasn’t my two hours back.

  2. No, Northeast.
    When the studios, directors, and actors all started trumpeting their political views and the summary of those views were that they hate people like me; I stopped going to the movies and dropping the green on a ticket or buying the film on DVD afterwards. So I’m a bit out of touch.
    I now only pick up the films at the town library. The studio doesn’t get my green.

    By the way, what the fuck happened to Thor’s hammer? I figure they wrote Cap’s red, white and blue shield out of the story because it offended them, but what did they have against the hammer?

    Thor’s hammer? Beats the shit out of me; like I said, I want my two hours back. I’ll ask Jeff if you’re really curious since he seems like he’s up to date on all that crap…
