Another alternative is one of the problems with the supernatural and magic. Science is a process. Science should be able to explain magic. Even if Magic is a new fundamental force, and rewrites all laws of physics as we know them... its then still part of the natural world, still part of physics, and still can be explained via observation, and repetition. Kindof like UFOS... its only unidentified, until you identify it.

So, if "magic" exists as a 5th fundamental force, (gravity, electromagnetism, strong interaction, weak interaction) then, yes we would be seeing its effects on everything, and in everything.
This "magic" could be souls, or something. or souls even a 6th fundamental force.


Another is that the fundamental laws of OUR universe do not apply to the Marvel one. At the heart of the Infinity wars, is one of the major ones. The laws of Thermodynamics, entrophy, and conservation.
Neither the Marvel cinematic u, or comic book u, are closed systems. the universes get energy and imput from OTHER universes all the time.

TIME is not linear in these either.
The basic laws of Cause and Effect are broken. (DC speed force totally breaks this as well.) (the speed of light is not the speed of light, its the speed of cause and effect. and that is why its the top speed possible.)

i have no problem using science to explain magic. there was plenty of stuff back in the day that even if you did it TODAY, it would look like magic. there were "potions" that made a person temporarily infertile. there was little to no explanation given to why or how it worked. but the romans knew about it and they used it. a lot. there was a flower that grew locally that they'd basically just make tea out of it and drink it and have all kinds of sex and no babies. that flower doesn't exist anymore specifically because of the romans.

the point is, this stuff wasn't wrapped up in a nice little pharmaceutical package. it was some dude on a street corner selling potions.

Saw this a second time today in IMAX, still enjoyed it. Definitely not a top tier movie or anything but I was more entertained than something like Dr. Strange. The bad guys didn't get any better but I realize they really just didn't have much screen time at all, and splitting it up between 3 or 4 people made it so much worse. For these kind of movies Marvel really needs to set up villains across multiple movies, so AM1 should have had Ghost's background teased out a little bit and some buildup and honestly just cut the whole Boyd Crowder character, even though I love Goggins he has been picking up some real shitty villains recently (Tomb Raider, Ant Man 2, Maze Runner) hope he gets a new agent or something.

AMC A-List is the fucking best, I got 2 hours to kill and I don't go somewhere, lets see whats playing in Dolby/IMAX and sit in a nice AC theater for 2 hours. Fuck moviepass.

I didn't mind the weak villains and their short screen times, as I thought they provided adequate obstacles for the "Can we save Janet in time?" drive of the movie, and set up Ghost and Goliath as 2 characters who could come back. Especially if the post credit scene is a way to keep all 4 of them out of the next Avengers and leave a full exploration of the Quantum Realm for part 3 (or even if scott hits a time bubble to be in avengers and they just use the energy he was collecting for part 3). Maybe I am just desensitized to the Weak Marvel Villain.

And I will second the A-List love, especially living a few minutes from an AMC that just had a Dolby theater installed around 6 months ago.

I was thinking they were going to use the time bubble to drop him into Capt. Marvel movie and use him to tie her into MCU. And to get her back from the 80’s/90’s.
