This week, due to one of our group being busy on Thursday evening, we went out to the cinema on Friday. One of us had the day off of work, while the other two took a half day. The film we watched this week was Avengers: Infinity war. Despite the popularity of superhero films these days, this is actually the first one I have seen. Superhero films or fantasy franchises are not my thing and, I’m going to be honest, I didn’t enjoy this film. This may be in part due to it being the first one I have seen, as I had no prior knowledge of the characters or backstory.
I will not deny that the film was well put together, and really well acted. I did notice that towards the end there were some special effects that looked a little off, but all together it was well made.
From a social standpoint, this trip was an interesting one. After the film, we went to the pub as usual. The other two in the group have a tendency to push each other’s buttons, this day was no exception. I sometimes find it difficult to mediate when they start bickering, but I do find it quite amusing. The two of them actually get along very well, and in many respects, I think the way they argue all the time is how they keep their relationship so strong. The two of them are always telling me and my best friend to sort ourselves out and by the way they work out their differences, they are of course right.
After ignoring each other for about twenty minutes, something as simple as a two-minute cigarette break was enough to sort out whatever issues they had. If, by following their example, I can sort out my own problems with a person that I care so much about.
