    So I watched Infinity War again the other day, and it occurred to me, the bit where the bug lady from Guardians of the Galaxy is mind melding Thanos, whilst Doctor Strange and Iron Man try and take the gauntlet off him - given that he's basically unconscious and not fighting back then; why don't they kill him? Or at the very least cut his arm off? Strange could do one of the portal thingies on his head or neck then close it, like what happened to Thanos' mate's arm, earlier in the film.

    Missed opportunity that, tssk.

    Only villains kill people? Heroes put them in prison.

    Obvious one is lord of the rings, why didn't they just hop on an eagle.

    Tbh, how it should have ended has covered most of this.

    I would argue, taking his arm off would be a small price to pay for saving half of all life.

    The Avengers have killed hundreds of people. Half the universe was a stake...

    Trouble is, I haven't seen all films but I've seen some, so how do I know if this thread is safe to venture into?

    With that I've always justified it as the ring having a will of its own and basically everyone but the Hobbits being easily corrupted, so had they dialled for an eagle, the ring might have sent them mental after a couple of hours. Or something.

    Just jump on an eagles back straight to Mount Doom with the ring. Don't give me that fucking shit about it's all about the journey! :-)

    Also Infinity War: Just kill Vision and destroy the fucking stone. Your romps in a Scottish B&B mean nothing compared with half the life in the universe.
    Also Infinity War: Just hit him in the head FROM THE OFF. Instakill. You're obviously going for it, why leave him with a non-mortal wound?
    Also Infinity War: Why didn't Strange just put him in a time loop? You mean to say he can do that to a literal god in another dimension, but not some giant blackberry with a shiney glove?
    ALSO INFINITY WAR: IF HALF THE LIFE IN THE UNIVERSE DIED, WHY DIDN'T THE PLANTS DIE AND SCATTER AWAY? WHY WAS IT ONLY THINGS THAT CAN SPEAK?

    And the eagle boss would have eaten them and had the ring on before you can say 'does it have large talons?'

    Problem with picking flaws in the fantasy of film is you would destroy every horror film ever.

    It would also drive you mad, see Prometheus as exhibit A to fucking Z. AAAAARGH!!!!!!

    All of the films are documenting her mental health issues, there's no LITERAL shark

    I'm shocked that this thread isn't 'why didn't he just double the resources instead?!'

    Also, what happened to the Marty that was born and grew up in the timeline that he arrives in at the end of the first film.

    If I was George McFly I'd be straight on to Jeremy Kyle.
