Almost 1 year later:
Decided to give it another spin...
For what seemed like a hundred reasons--as a fan of movies, superheroes, the fantasy genre as a whole, these particular actors, Marvel in general, the time invested in this series, the now-eerily-prescient nature of this film, and a few personal reasons of my own... I swear I got teary-eyed every 5 minutes.
It feels to me like an amazing culmination of everything, and perhaps the single greatest time I had at the movies throughout the '10s, in a way I haven't felt since my childhood, with the likes of STAR WARS, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, SUPERMAN II, E.T., RETURN OF THE JEDI, GHOSTBUSTERS or BACK TO THE FUTURE.
One year later, an even bigger emotional gut punch. Maybe there's almost too much going on, yet every moment felt earned.
I stand by my vote of "Movie of the Decade."
