I finally sat down and watched this movie. A part of my dissatisfaction in the movie is that the Eternals are a hard sell, at least to me. Even though I grew up a MARVEL fan with my head in their comics. The Eternals is just that part of the MARVEL universe that are just unfamiliar to me, and I am a Jack Kirby fan. It could be that I left comics behind when I entered the workforce in 1973. It is possible that I stopped reading comics a couple of years before. The Eternals appeared in the comics about 1976, so I missed them, I was into girls at that point, married in 1977.
When it comes to Captain America, Black Widow, The Avengers, Fantastic Four, Dr Strange, Spiderman, etc, those are characters that i grew up with. I knew who they were, nostalgic, familiar, childhood buddies, I was ready to see my heroes on the big screen. I knew who they were, icons of American youth culture of yesterday.
Enter the Eternals and there is no connection, no emotion, I don't know who these people are, can't get their names straight. And the movie, I feel, did not help me much in that aspect. And I am not sure what they could have done different. The movie was one of "those movies" in which you have to watch the full movie before you form your opinion. And thinking back over this whole montage it is a big dislike and a big like, for me, sort of mixed feelings I guess. I like it and I don't like it.
