Avengers: Infinity War

4.5 out of 5 stars

Let’s bring the Infinity War week to an end by answering the most important question: Is it any good?

Though the Marvel Studios have managed to release one feature film after the other without screwing up, they have well proven their ability to fail with some of their more underwhelming series on Netflix. So I could nothing but hope that I wouldn’t be disappointed by their climactic showdown that could set an end to all the comic book movies (which of course it won’t).

The chance of failure was not unlikely, given the high bar they kept raising in the last ten years and the sheer scope of the whole undertaking.

Well, we all knew Marvel Studios’ lucky streak would come to an end one day – A sad day.

But that day is not today. Holy fucking moly! What a fantastic ride! Oh yes, it’s good. I mean: g o o d. It’s spectacular! Thank you Marvel Studios to let your first 10 amazing years end on such a high note, giving a now grown up man all the comic book movie his 9-year-old self would never even have dreamed of.

I have often claimed to regret to be too young to have seen the original «Star Wars» when it first was theatrically released. But that’s a low price to pay to be alive and well today and be able to enjoy wonderful things like «Avengers: Infinity War».

Post Scriptum:

We did it! Thanks to the rafe new world sister watch initiative, my sister finally watched «Guardians of the Galaxy». I’m proud to say this goal was achieved in less than 48 hours thanks to my constant nagging and a website specially made for this purpose: sisterwatch.rafenew.world.

But did she like the movie or is she just a bad person? I’m very honoured to let my sister speak for herself in her very first guest article on rafenew.world:


And a very special THANK YOU to my mother who did her part in working on my sister in this matter. I love you, mom! And since there’s still hope for my sister, I imagine she does, too.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

What a great sci-fi fantasy action comedy! I laughed my ass off and if you’re an eighties kid, you probably will, too.
In the end there was not a dry eye in the house (and that wasn’t because of the 3D glasses).
