    ★★★

    I probably liked this movie more than I should've because of how it satirized (whether intentionally or not) a lot of things I hated in Infinity War, and expect to hate in its sequel.

    More importantly, give Leitch a full length Domino feature. Turns out, fight choreography works a lot better with low-powered or uncommon power suites.

    This is a nice, impressively-crafted children's movie. Expecting anything more will leave you disappointed. Why is it Fox Searchlight, again?

    ★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Meh. Every emotional impact is unearned and falls flat. I nearly cracked up laughing when Thanos was all weepy over killing his "beloved" daughter. Even the last, best chance to make me give a damn about what was going on was kicked to the curb due to (I assume) contractual obligations.

    Specifically, when half the universe's population is going all "Dust in the Wind" up in here, the dice fall just luckily enough to keep all members of the team…

    ★★★★

    From the moment a couple of hands were refracted through a glass of water, I felt dread in the pit of my stomach. At times, the weave incorporated threads of beauty or terror or both at the same time, but the underlying fabric was just constant dread. It was awesome. I'm going to drink a bottle of wine now.
