Ten years and 18 movies later have led to Avengers: Infinity War, the movie that changes everything in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). And with Thanos, the evil-lurking presence teased over the years in various MCU films, finally coming out from the shadows, the significant ramifications viewers will witness at the hands of the intergalactic despot in Infinity War are sure to cause a stir of emotion with fans who have followed these superheroes over the last decade. When you bring together the original Avengers mixed with new Avengers (Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man) and the Guardians of the Galaxy to take down the biggest threat the universe has ever seen, on paper, it might feel a little overwhelming to pack this many superheroes into one two and a half hour movie. However, with the Russo Brothers, the directing duo behind the two best movies in the MCU (Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War), overseeing the biggest ever ensemble of superheroes assembled on screen, rest assured they manage to give balance to all these characters we have come to know for the entire duration of Infinity War. The result is equally thrilling, captivating, emotional, and, not so shockingly, epic all at once.

Before you see how I rated this film, I just want to say a few things. Captain America: Civil War was unbelievably well made. It was beautiful to look at, well acted, funny and likeable. It really did feel epic. And I did like it – all 147 minutes of it. I cannot stress this enough: I did not hate this film. But, like its DC counterpart, Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, this is a film that absolutely should have been two or three movies instead of one. The significant difference between Dawn of Justice and Civil War is that Civil War was masterfully done. Read more
The Jungle Book is a film in the style of the classic tragedies in which a grizzled and scarred veteran tries to save his homeland from an invasive species with the capability of destroying the entire jungle he calls home. It is a moral tale, where he is undone by his PTSD, inability to trust and thirst for vengeance. Or, if you’re one of those people who doesn’t (as a rule) automatically root for the bad guy, The Jungle Book is about a boy raised by wolves who is trying to find out where, and how, he belongs.
