I liked the ending they went to, had a laugh at Pip the Troll's entrance and Eros' cliffhanger with Druig, Thena and Makkari was good enough.

This is a good movie. Not great, but also not deserving of its "rotten" status. I liked how they ended Sprite's storyline as an Eternal so that they do not have to try and explain her age progression in future movies.

@BringFFtoMCU - I wouldn't consider any 'ending' that an Eternal received to be final, they are after all *** SPOILERS*** androids with memories restored into likely multiple bodies over time... so whatever happened to this body may not mean anything as it could easily be replaced by another body with most (possibly all) of their memories in a future movie. Heck, this same outcome could have happened with Sprite world after world after world.

Saw it the first time at home and paused it like 10 times and was kinda bored with it.
2nd time through I enjoyed it and could tell I will like it even more on future watching

Druigs my favorite but they’re all pretty good characters

I kind of hope Eternals is a one-off and that the characters all disperse into other properties, but I also want to see how Chloe Zhao would handle a sequel.

SPOILERS: Here's my experience watching "Eternals" with my wife and daughters (for anyone who cares): We watched it when it became available on D+ in our movie room (which I usually reserve for blockbuster type movies given that I have 2 daughters - a 2 year old and a 5 (soon to be 6) year old and they are typically SO BORED DADDY with those type of movies :). As long as I can frame everything in the sense of Disney Princesses then my oldest daughter will be interested. With that in mind, Princess Sersi has 2 princes: Prince Icarus (the old prince) and Prince Dane (the new prince). Sersi is in love with the new prince BUT the monsters start showing up and so she has to get all her friends together to fight the monsters (including the old prince). Then pew pew pew and Sersi's not sure if she still loves the old prince because he seems to still love her, then pew pew pew the monsters are dead BUT a big monster comes out of the ground and all the Eternals have to team up to stop it. And then the old prince goes away because he is sad. The end.

Anyway I quite enjoyed it. Nice change of pace for Marvel with not having the typical "Loki" style villain (though I loves me some Loki). And all the deeper issues presented in the movie are nice as well (I'm sure that there's been more than one college student bong session discussing the implications of everything laid out in "Eternals" and its ramifications (just like there likely were with Thanos) - not that I would know anything about that ;)).

At the end I"m sure that regardless of the success of this movie Marvel was using it to lay the groundwork for things to come (Galactus anyone?) so I appreciate it for what it was and look forward to more.

@StSteven - If they could have just trimmed it a bit. Less run time, fewer characters. Still, it was enjoyable.

Easily my least favourite of the Eternals, but the actress played that unlikable factor to a T. Hope her becoming mortal took away only her eternal youth and not the rest of her illusion / projection powers.

@DrReedRichards - that moment got so little fanfare I didn’t know it happened til the second time I watched it.

@TheWalkingCuban -

Not only is this film a lifeless dud but Eternals not only wasted amazing actors like Barry Keoghan but the editing team even left in bad takes that actually made the cut lmao

Druig’s argument with Ajak at the 39 minute mark is a big ol lol
SauronthePower - 1/26/2022, 3:06 AM
@TheLobster - I was wondering about that as his delivery comes off very uneven and stilted there. Similar thing happens with Gilgamesh’s very strangely choreographed response to the news of Ajak’s death.
