Boo hoo, woe is me, I know, but I am disappointed that the studio has decided to NOT screen Infinity War in Columbus. Cincinnati only. They did the same thing for Star Wars, which I was less disappointed about since I already had tickets to see it with friends anyway.

They did screen Black Panther though, so it's not the death of Disney in Columbus...yet. I guess I will just have to use my new MoviePass subscription to see it :D.
Is there some qualifier I'm missing here (midnight screening, IMAX, etc)?

Thor: The Dark World 1/10
Avengers: Infinity War 1/10

*Need to revisit, I guess. Fell asleep at multiple parts. Mostly not bad though.

I don't know why I keep torturing myself with these. There's occasional flashes of brilliance (the CAPTAIN AMERICA trilogy is about so many things, I love how it flips the military industrial complex - the very one that led to the creation of the Captain - on its head in the second and third films), but the franchise focus and the strict adherence to problematic comic book tropes (literally HOW MANY DEAD MOMS? HOW MANY DAMSELS IN DISTRESS? etc.) too often undermines any significant thematic exploration.

Update.

Since I've been saying Infinity War is better than Civil War, clearly I needed to move a vote.

You have? Damn...I like the movie, but Civil War is tight.

1. Civil War is where the MCU started to feel overstuffed. This doesn't come across in Infinity War, where there's plenty of work to go around for everyone.

2. While I admire the way the film goes intimate in the finale, Civil War peaks at the airport and I rarely feel like watching the rest of the film.

3. Baron Zemo’s plan is ludicrously convoluted, and completely dependent on a mixture of luck, coincidence, and a bunch of stuff he probably couldn’t control and definitely couldn’t foresee.

Updated through what I saw in 2018. Not a bad stretch of films, although I did skip Ant-Man and the Wasp since I wasn't too hot on the first film. And I'm actually curious about what happens in the next Avengers film, which is a weird thing to say about a superhero movie.

Guardians of the Galaxy
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Avengers: Infinity War
Thor: Ragnarok
Black Panther
Spider-Man: Homecoming

The Avengers
Captain America: Civil War
Ant-Man
