    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★★★

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

    Cosmic warlord Thanos begins his quest to gather the six Infinity Stones which will give him God-like power over the universe. The Avengers team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy in order to stop him, but can they?

    It doesn't take long for "Infinity War" to make clear that this is not another typical summer blockbuster movie. Within the first five minutes the villain has already killed a ton of innocent people (among whom a beloved main character) and…

    Four Weddings and a Funeral

    ★★★★

    A charming philanderer meets an American woman at his best friend's wedding. They have an one-night stand but their connection grows stronger every time a social event brings them together.

    Who said that formulaic movies are inherently bad? "Four Weddings and a Funeral" never deviates from the classic romantic comedy formula, pioneered by Preston Sturges in the 1940s and refined with "When Harry Met Sally", and it's one of the best and most charming samples of the resurgent British cinema…

    And here's to the fools who dream
