    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Cosmic warlord Thanos begins his quest to gather the six Infinity Stones which will give him God-like power over the universe. The Avengers team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy in order to stop him, but can they?

    Race to Witch Mountain

    ★½

    Two teenage alien siblings crash-land in the middle of the Nevada desert. With government agents hot on their heels, they hire a Las Vegas cab driver to take them to a secret installation and retrieve what they came for.

    ★★★★½

    And here's to the fools who dream
    Crazy as they may seem
