    It's impossible to say how it holds up as a standalone feature. Regardless, Infinity War ranks higher than other Marvel movies as there's finally real stakes at play. There was a lot going on but each storyline had purpose and very rarely felt like cheap fan service. Thanos is a surprisingly compelling villain and I'm glad they centred the film around him. But my main man Steve was totally dogged here, just for the record.

    It's sad to admit, but suspecting Colin Farrell was in a predatory sexual relationship with Ezra Miller was the highlight of this film for me.

    The cast are lovely but their characters are decidedly mundane. Across the two hour run-time it's unbelievable how little they do and how little happens to them. The story is incredibly weak and the hollow execution makes me cringe at the thought of four more of these.

    By the end I don't know what left me more agitated; some of the seriously shoddy CGI or the brittle Johnny Depp cameo. No thanks!

    When Emma Stone is nominated for Best Actress at the Oscars I hope they play a clip of her dancing to “I Ran”.

    I really love this movie. From the dinner scene to the end-card my stomach was in knots. There's so much to take in and so much to think about. I’m dreading the day I’ll have to…
