  • Avengers: Infinity War

    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★★½

    On rewatching, this has not become less traumatic! The foreshadowing of Tony's fear for Peter "stowing away" carries more significance as a rewatcher and I think you believe the impending doom of them all more - Thanos does indeed seem "inevitable".

    Solo: A Star Wars Story

    ★★½

    The way it felt to me at the time and still feel on reflection, is that this is a story we already knew but they've just fleshed it out. We knew about how Han got the Millenium Falcon, we knew about the Kessel Run, we knew about Chewie and Han forming a bond. It was nice, felt very much "in the Star Wars universe" but wasn't anywhere near as impactful as Rogue One. Pleasant enough way to pass the time but won't be rushing to rewatch it.

    Captain Marvel

    ★★★½

    I really enjoyed this while I was watching it but on reflecting afterwards I think it felt too much like an introduction to the character so that she can appear in Avengers:Endgame. There was little threat to her power, little long-term motivations established but just an opportunity for her to evidence her supreme strength against inferior opponents and a flimsy justification for her absence from that time of the movie to the summons from Fury after "the snap".

    Good performances…

    ★★

    It is probably my fault for watching this a bit at a time but I found it really hard to follow who the names were referring to and as such to appreciate most of the intrigue or comedic elements. Fantastic cast but not sure I got much out of this one.
