Discuss Avengers: Infinity War

Great popcorn flick. The action was pretty good and it was cool to see all of the Marvel movie heroes together in one film. But is it really that hard to come up with a viable motivation for the villain? I mean, the universe is a pretty big place. Its kinda hard to pull off the overpopulation card. This along with the fact that the losses do not feel like real losses when you can control reality and time kinda makes anything that happens unimpactful.

Well in the book. Thanos was in loved with Death and She wanted to balance to the universe by killing half everyone off. In the movie they just forgo the Lady Death thing.

He wants to play god for a day.

Races of creatures can overpopulate their planets and then leave for space, hoping to find new worlds to colonize. Isn't that what we've done?? It seems like a sound motivation to me.

i thought most creatures [we know of] always seem to live in balance.

Hey, look, it's a work of fiction -- maybe they're suggesting that aliens are just as self-absorbed as humans, I don't know!! What do your initials stand for, anyway? Pumpkin spice latte?

why abusive?

All we have to judge is what we are familiar with.....what's around us. most creatures are in some kind of balance with their environment.

Maybe intelligence creates the hubris of "tilting at windmills".
