    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★★★

    Having had my fill of the genre, Infinity War smashes the lethargy with an iron fist. Gripping, brutal and beautifully staged, this is the apex predator of superhero movies. High stakes, fantastic effects, perfect casting and every cool character in the game. Not least Thanos, a beast beyond measure, imposing and complex, Brolin deserves a slow clap.

    It's all so exaggerated and pompous you have to hand it to Snack Zider for pulling it off. I think anyone that doesn't enjoy the 300 on some level is either lying to themselves, lying to others or is just a little dead inside. My advice...embrace your…
