    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★

    After toying with the mortality of its ensemble in every single film across its now 10-year franchise, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has finally reached a point of no return.

    The Red Turtle

    ★★★½

    First 78 minutes of The Red Turtle: this is a very nice movie
    Last 2 minutes: I am emotionally wrecked and have a new perspective on life
