    A Quiet Place Part II

    ★★★★

    One of the first 2020 films to have its release cancelled due to the pandemic, A Quiet Place Part II finally comes to cinemas, more than a full year after its scheduled release.

    ★★★½

From then on, the Avengers movies kind of lost me and I became unable to overlook the fact I was just watching a series of decisions made by corporate to maximize engagement, more than I was characters I cared about undergoing stories and arcs. Every movie post Infinity War has failed to really pull me back…
