1. Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War movie review

While I wasn’t as impressed with Black Panther as others were, this was the super-hero movie that knocked my socks off.

Most of the various threads of the MCU are pulled together once again for a super-sized hero movie that delivers. Read the full review
