Andrew Hitchcock’s review published on Letterboxd:
So here we are.... nine hours before my showing of Avengers: Endgame and I can barely hold back my excitement. These movies have meant so much to me throughout the past ten years. I remember Iron Man 2 being one of the first movies I watched alone with my dad, followed by Captain America The First Avenger. I remember seeing Avengers with my childhood best-friend the day it came out and then again with another great friend of mine. I remember seeing Iron Man 3 and The Winter Solider for the first time with none other then Houston Coley himself. Seeing Guardians of the Galaxy, having it rise to one of my favorite movies of all time and being literally obsessed with the soundtrack. I remember the hype leading up to Age of Ultron and Ant-Man and being so happy with them. I could go on and on and on. Every single one of these movies holds a special place in my life (specifically phases 1-2). They're all landmarks throughout my childhood. I remember where, when and who I saw them with, and everything that I was dealing with at that time.
Endgame is hopefully going to be the end of all of that....
It's saddening but also exciting. Things need to be put to rest and the idea that fact that Infinity War is the prequel to that coming end is amazing. The first time I saw it I wasn't the biggest fan but after multiple re-watches and time to really sit with it, it has easily becoming one of my favorite MCU movies. Everything from the casting of Thanos, to the haunting Silvestri score and to the writing of such a monstrosity, it is all done so perfectly. I have nothing but respect for everyone involved and I cannot wait to see how they handle Endgame.
