    MCU AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR REWATCH 2018: WEEK #12

    This movie cements both Captain America's place as the finest sub-franchise of the MCU and also maybe The Russo Brothers as the best superhero movie directors ever?

    So weird. Weird pacing, weird acting, weird plot, weird twists. All of it pretty bad. John Boyega was good (and so were some of the other actors but they were all underserved by the actual film they were in). Charlie Day could have been SO good but, again, the movie he was in wasn't and brought him down. Character relationships were ill defined and never explored and sometimes just skipped over until later. Major character deaths were garbage and should have never happened. Really disappointing overall.

It's earnest almost to the point of being cheesy, but it pulls…
