    The final battle of Avengers Endgame was a tragic waste of potential, in this video essay, I ask why.

    Hey Guys,

    I just wanted to say thank you for the incredible support over the past few months and especially to my patrons who help to keep this channel afloat, and not to mention we've nearly hit half a million subs which is something I honestly never thought I'd reach :D

    I'm a lazy bugger however, so I have nothing planned for reaching the milestone, however I do have a video on how to make a video essay coming out very soon so keep your eyes peeled for that. In the video I'll say my controversial opinions on the video essay community and also give advice to anyone who wants to become a video essayist. It just so happens its release may coincide with my 500k milestone so... actually yeah, that's my half a million special, my entirely planned one. (looks side to side suspiciously)

    Anyway, thanks a ton to every last one of you for sticking around, and thanks to audible for sponsoring today's video. Please do check them out by clicking my link as when you do, it encourages audible to work with me again which makes my income more steady, and thus my future on YouTube far more hopeful :D

    (TL;DR please click my audible link so I can stave off from getting a real job)

    Have a great day,
    - Henry

    Just add Loki in the very end, when Thanos snaps, Loki turn visible and says:"Respawn, LOL", and the gauntlet that he have (with gems on) fade away like an illusion (while the scene takes back to tony and the real gauntlet).

    The real reason why I think Endgame's final battle was full of hope was that after Starlord's tantrum in Infinty War the rest of Infinty War was filled with dread and anger for the audience to feel throughout the end of Infinty War. Therefore I think they were trying to make up for the amount of "Yang" that they left in that movie prior to Endgame.

    Good Videos

    at 18:40 Yin is bad and Yang is good.

    Basically just said there was only dread and never hope.

    Avengers Endgame was shit. Time travel always ruins a story. Infinity War was great, Endgame was dogshit.

    Ngl, I tried to like Endgame but I just couldn’t. At first I liked it but something about it was off... Then I thought about it and, unfortunately, I realised it’s really not good imo.

    I actually didn't like captain marvels entrance or her destroying the ship. It made all the other heroes redundent and made thanos less of a threat. They should have made thanos more like comic thanos.

    I really loved the portal scene. It was one of the best cavalry scenes in a movie in a long time. I do agree though, everything after felt flashy but not convincing. It was like GoTs end battle.

    I'm pretty sure Wanda didn't jump in to save Black Panther, but rather to kill Thanos. She was basically that one soldier who leaves their post to go exact their personal vendetta out in the middle of the battlefield.

    Rey kissing Ben Solo was the biggest waste of a climax in cinematic history.
