I took my daughter to see the My Little Pony movie. To say it was insipid garbage would be insulting to garbage. Sure, the subject matter was so saccharine I needed an insulin injection, but that's no excuse for a nonsensical plot, pointless characters, and lack of any structure. If I'm forced to sit through a kid's movie, at least have the decency to make it good.

Last two films I saw this past week:

Black Panther
It was awesome, probably my favourite MARVEL movie of them all, Killmonger was easily the best villan the MCU has ever had, Wakanda also rocked. Looking forward to a sequel.

Score
: 5/5

Thor Ragnarok
Pretty fun, charming, endearing and true to its identity, easily in my top 5 MARVEL movies.

Score
:4.5/5

Two days ago I saw Avengers Infinity War.
Semi-Coheren-Nonsensical-Review said:
Infinity Wars was everything it needed to be as a big loud party movie celbrating 10 years of fandom build up, doubling on the humour, the action, the emotions and the characters and doing everything Avengers did in 2012 but bigger.

As a standalone movie is pretty lackluster with little "substance" and lots of spectacle and funny characters but, looking the movie with these lens is missing the point of what Infinity War is and what it wants to say. Just like Avengers, this movie is a celebration of everything that Marvel has built on this franchise, the characters, its quirks and gimmicks, action, its cliches and tropes, emotional investment and more, this amalgamation of movie's substance IS its big and loud spectacle of crossover stravaganza.

That doesn't mean its inmature, here Marvel shows that they have heard its most common criticisms and you can see that they have been excercising on improving (most of) its shortcomings, and by doing so they delivered a thrilling opponent, surprsing developments (for their standards), many many emotions and an incredibly polished popcorn blockbuster like nobody's bussiness.

This is AVENGER: INFINITY WAR
Lots of great stuff.

I'd rank it as the fifth best MCU movie, behind Black Panther, Guardians 2, Winter Soldier and Guardians 1 respectively.

i wouldn't call it lackluster as a standalone movie either, i thought it was great entertainment.

personally it impressed me how they tied so many characters and story events without coming up as confusing.

the ending was awesome, finally the dramatic punch i wanted from marvel and im really pumped for the sequel.
