Will you like the Eternals movie?
There are a lot of contradictions about the Eternals movie. Critics say it’s stupid because they were expecting an Oscar worthy movie, Marvel fans say it’s boring because nothing happens during the whole thing.
Despite that, there is a niche group of people that absolutely love it. Here is how to see if you are one of them:
You will enjoy Eternals if you are a character driven watcher (or reader) and if you are a sucker for the the most basic fan fiction tropes (like me).
Quite self explanatory. If you enjoy consuming media that introduces a variety of characters and focuses on the dynamics between them you will like this one.
And, if you enjoy old-but-gold fanfic tropes like found family, the angry/sad one who is only smiling around the happy one, the girlboss and malewife who are also the damaged one and the protective one, a 6000 y.o. slowburn, etc. you will have fun watching the couples in this movie.
In summary, if you enjoy any of those fandoms (not all of them because we all have different tastes, but a few):
The Umbrella Academy, The Boys, The Witcher, The Marauders, Twilight, Six of Crows, DC Titans, Criminal Minds, Leverage, Shameless, Community, Disney’s Encanto etc.
and if you can name each character in them, then you may like Eternals.
Also, the cinematography is fucking beautiful.
You will not enjoy it if:
1. You understand physics or geography or history
Tbh there are some things that happen, that if you actually think about them for more than 5 sec you’ll wanna pull your hair out.
2. If you like the MCU movie structure
You’ll be really bored and confused during the entire thing. There are jumps in time, jumps in space, flashbacks, flash forwards. It feels more like a DC movie than a Marvel one. There isn’t a solid 3 act structure. There is kind of a villain but he sucks, which is the only consistent thing with a Marvel movie.
"The Independent , based on research from Preply , revealed that there has been a 250% increase in inquiries about learning sign language after the debut of Marvel Studios' Eternals .
