Infinity War (Spoilers!!!)

In a previous post, I said that I might discuss the plot of Infinity War once the film is a few months old, so people who haven't seen it don't run into spoilers. The Blu-Ray is releasing in a few days, and I'm planning on buying the 4K disc, even though I've seen it in the cinema three times now, once in 3D, again in IMAX 3D, and then in regular 2D.

When I watched for the third time I expected the cinema to be less packed, but no, the screening was almost full! It was great every single time I saw it, but nothing will compare to when I saw it for the first time. My hands were constantly clenched together, and I would brought them to my mouth in shock many times.

First of all, I did not expect Loki (Who I have a massive crush on, like every other girl my age) to die so quickly. I didn't cry, though. In some interview somewhere I heard that he was going to be with Thanos for about half of the film, but that was obviously said to throw some fans off.

I know some people online said that his death sucked, and that it was weird that he tried to kill Thanos with a couple of daggers when he knows all of these fancy magic tricks. That is true, but I didn't really think that at all. There have been petitions going around the Internet to get Marvel to bring him back, but I think it would be a bit cheap if they did that.

When half of the universe died because of the snap, it didn't make me cry either. When Bucky went the guy next to me farted, so I was busy trying not to laugh. (I know, I am very immature.) We all know everybody who got dusted is coming back anyway.

Loads of people hate Star-Lord now too, for getting angry at Thanos for messing everything up. But I thought it was very in character. If everything had gone according to plan and they had defeated Thanos, there wouldn't be a second part of the film planned.

Before IW, Doctor Strange wasn't one of my favourite characters. Now, I think he's awesome. He was really cool in Infinity War. Every character was, really. People have also said that the CGI looks really off when Bruce Banner is in the Hulkbuster. I keep trying to notice that part, but I cannot find it anywhere. Maybe I'm immune to bad CGI.

I have more thoughts about the film, but I can't remember them right now since the last time I saw the film was weeks ago. They may come back once I watch it again, though. Infinity War is currently my favourite film, but it may be dethroned when Avengers 4 comes out.

I saw Ant-Man and the Wasp the day before it came out, and that was really good too! But for the sake of spoilers, I won't say too much about it here. If you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend it.

And that's all I have to say today.

Virtual Reality

Today I purchased a cheap virtual reality headset (without a Bluetooth remote) because I had never experienced it before. The closest thing to VR I have done is trying out the Microsoft HoloLens.

VR was alright, but my iPhone SE's screen is too small, so I see black borders around everything, which really breaks the immersion. Also, I wish I had spent a bit more money to get the headset with the Bluetooth remote, because for some reason my headset is missing an "action button".

My eyes feel all funny now. Tomorrow I will try VR with a much bigger Galaxy S6 phone.

Happy Birthday Misty's World!

This post was written a few days in advance, because Misty is busy today.

Today is the official one year anniversary of the day I moved Misty's World to Neocities! It's not the day the site was created, but I'm just going to treat it as the actual birthday because Neocities was where it got people viewing it and where the site got its own identity.

Misty's World is the most successful thing that I have ever put onto the World Wide Web, gaining over 18,000 views! Most of those were probably from me though. Thank you to everybody who has ever viewed the site or written in the guestbook. I really appreciate all of the support people have given me.

If I hadn't been told about Neocities by a person called Nintel, my site would have stayed on Geocities Japan, unable to get views. It probably would have become abandoned after a while too.

Happy First Birthday, Misty's World. I'm sorry I haven't been paying much attention to you lately.
