    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★★★

    I was completely convinced the Russo Brothers couldn't pull this off. Not with all those characters requiring all those subplots, while at the same time delivering genuine threat, engaging drama and exciting action.

    Its a fine 100 minutes, but the greatest James Bond documentary remains yet to be made.

    Electric Boogaloo is one of two documentaries telling the story of Cannon Films, the seat-of-the-pants production company run by Israeli immigrants Menahem Golan and Yoran Globus. The documentary is a whistle-stop look at the company from birth to death, punctuated with incredible and often hilarious stories of the…
