Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
10 Stars out of 10



There has been a run of some of the greatest Superhero flicks ever made with the likes of Thor: Ragnarok (2017), Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), Black Panther (2018), Wonder Woman (2017), Logan (2017), Deadpool (2016) and one sh*tty one: Justice League (2017) to highlight how NOT to make a Team flick. But I just watched what I would easily ranked at the absolute best of them all with Avengers: Infinity War. This movie is pure high octane adrenaline from the very first frame to the very last one. Honestly, I've never seen a movie quite like this. Simply put, the entire movie is basically a 3rd Act. Yes, there is a beginning, middle and end. But with so many different characters that need to get their screen time in, they have no choice but to give them all their just due. By the time you get the actual 3rd Act, you're left wondering "how the f*ck" are they going to top the first 2/3 of the movie?" Well, they top it and it's exhilarating to say the least.

Like I said, so many characters, but the one true breakout, the one that was Shakespearean in both backstory as well as the main Plot motivation is Thanos. Even though I have known about the comics story-line this comes from, I have never read it for many reasons (free time being the biggest factor). So everything that happens in the flick is completely spoiler-free for me and Thanos and his reasons for doing what he is doing is actually very interesting. He feels that he is in fact the "good guy" because he has to make the hard choices to save humanity. Committing genocide is NOT a good thing, but to see how the character is convincing himself he is on the right side of things is still a bold choice for the character and makes for a much different take on what is normally a cardboard cutout Villain, especially in a Comic book movie. Josh Brolin absolutely deserves every accolade he gets for his role as Thanos, who is both scary as f*ck and sympathetic in his portrayal of a morally flawed character.

There is so much to talk about and I'm trying to digest and remember it all. If there is one "criticism" I could level at the movie is that in order to really enjoy and get A LOT of easter eggs and inside jokes, watching the last handful of MCU flims is the way to go. I don't think Infinity War can be watched as a stand alone flick because there's just too many things an average moviegoer is just not going to get. I'll post more about the flick as it comes to me. But I really dig the final shot of Thanos and then the End Credit scene with Nick Fury and him sending a distress signal to Captain Marvel. Now I'm reeeeeeeally pumped to see the movie. So yeah, I highly recommend Infinity War as a Must-Buy for any personal DVD Library Collection. 10 Stars out of 10
