    MCU Rewatch #10 - Avengers: Infinity War (2018)

    With Avengers: Endgame coming my way tomorrow evening I clearly failed to review every MCU movie, although I did rewatch the majority of them. So thought no better last film to view than the MCU's biggest project, well before this next one.

    It's very difficult to describe how ugly this movie was to sit through, and that is no exaggeration, because it is a mess on practically…
