    My top 100 of all time has been getting a bit unwieldy and I'm not sure how I feel about the current rankings, so for the next little while I'll be re-watching a lot of films in the top 50 so that I can be sure that the list can be more accurate. I've chosen The Good,…

    Extended Edition

It betrayed the spirit of certain characters, tried to juggle 5 different plotlines when only 2 of them were kind of interesting, and threw out a dozen different themes without any of them working and few even having proper resolution. I literally didn't know how I felt about it until I had the urge to kick a nearby bush

    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★★½

    My perspective may change as the hype wears off (which happened with Age of Ultron, but Infinity War offered the exact blockbuster experience I wanted. Did a mostly decent job of balancing the dozens of characters, though a few people disappeared for a good 40 minutes and unfortunately Captain America (my personal favourite) didn't get much in the way of development. Felt a little repetitive as well, with a few actions being common across the multiple storylines. I loved the…
