    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★★★

    Well this is it! 10 years and 18 movies have led to this very point.

    I have followed the Marvel Cinematic Universe from the very start and enjoyed how the characters, stories and infinity stones have been cleverly interwoven across all movies; and enjoyed how the universe has grown and expanded to unrivalled proportions. Everyone has their own favourite Avenger - mine is Captain America due to his selfless nature, followed closely by Thor simply because Chris Hemsworth is just…

    Black Panther

    ★★★★

    Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther is another triumph for Marvel!

    We are all very familiar with the generic Marvel formula by now.

    Watched in 4D - I turned on the electric fan on the highest setting. Intense!

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens

    ★★★★★

    I can’t remember how old I was when I was first introduced to Star Wars; my stepdad taped it off the Sci-Fi Channel sometime in the early 90’s and encouraged me to watch it. I think I was too young to fully appreciate it at first but it was after seeing The Empire Strikes Back another year later that I truly began to adore the franchise. I didn’t see Return of the Jedi for some years later so I spent…
