    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★★½

    Marvel/Disney have truly created something special here. 10 years ago it took a gamble on a character called Iron Man ,directed by the guy that starred in 'Swingers" and featured Robert Downey, Jr. Now we have the biggest superhero film of all time in "Avengers: Infinity War" and I have to say with all the juggling they have to do in this one, and as someone who has professed superhero film burnout, this one jumpstarts my heart again...in a big…

    ★★★★½

    There is one scene in particular in "Three Billboards" that really takes you aback and helps you relate to the pain and anguish of Frances McDormand's Mildred Hayes. It's the final words that she shares with her daughter before she disappears.

    It's a moment that everyone has shared at one time or another. Something that we regret saying when we're in the heat of the moment. Luckily, most of us have the chance to apologize and move on, but there…
