If you’re a real nerd, you probably enjoy reading reviews, listening to reactions, and talking about a movie after you see it. I know I do!

Avengers: Infinity War Reactions – Blog Posts
Dissecting the Biggest Moments from Avengers: Infinity War / The Hollywood Reporter: Listen, I loved this movie, but I was not a fan of the ending. I think if they had just killed ONE of the original Avengers (Iron Man, Cap – the ones we know are on their way to “retiring” in this series), it would have been more impactful and believable. But personally I was just left with a feeling of, “Well, none of this is real. It will all be undone.” Then Meg Downey had a really excellent point in this article that made me think. She says, “I don’t really think it matters that we’re likely going to be seeing most if not all of them return in the next movie. It’s not really about the consequences lasting forever, that’s not important. The weight of this story is in the process of telling it, not in the permanence of the aftermath.”
Avengers: Infinity War Feels Like the Beginning of a Goodbye for Captain America / Vox: “Cap sacrificing himself for the greater good would feel like the ultimate inverse of Thanos’s decimation: giving his life to save the people he loves, instead of killing someone he loves in the name of a greater good. It’s a sacrifice that only Cap could make.” I predict this is where Infinity part two will go.
