I was reading the comments after a good review at The Guardian for Avengers: Infinity War. The great majority were very positive, and when Guardian readers endorse something so American, you know it probably is pretty good.
I also agree with David Roberts' tweet:
sarcastic responses to the criticism made by Richard Brody at the New Yorker that you had to have seen the last 10 years of Marvel films to understand this one. (Actually, as I explained in my previous post, I've missed plenty of Marvel movies, but seen enough that I knew nearly all of the main characters - and a couple of minor Avengers don't get to do much in this one anyway.) It does seem silly to criticise a movie in a long line of sequels for being a sequel.
