    I liked the Infinity War movie, but Alan Silvestri's score was, for me, mixed. On occasion, it really worked. [spoiler]Cap's entrance, Gamora's death[/spoiler]. Yet the action music was again muddy and dull, and moreover, he didn't utilize the MCU's other themes!

    Mostly agree with you, the Black Panther theme was used but none of the others as far as I could hear? Loved the film.

    It probably won't do much for you other than the spectacle if you've only seen Iron Man. The Marvel universe is tied together by so many events in the other films, particularly the two previous Avengers films that lead up to this and the post credits sequence at the end of Thor: Ragnorak which starts off this film.

    there's 18 other movies before Infinity War, and while they all "connect", there are certainly a few worth skipping.

    Even though I don't like comic book films I've watched almost all of the Marvel series. (Don't think I've watched any of them twice.)
  1. I have to say that the Marvel film I tend to return the most to is Winter Soldier.

    I imagine I'd be the same. Comic book films tend to have very little re-watch value for me.

    iron Man 3, Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man are the only Marvel films I've returned to. And when it comes out on Blu-Ray I'll gladly re-watch Black Panther.

    Review of Avengers: Infinity War

    I'm glad you highlighted "Forge" as the best cue. It's cue of the year material for me, a perfect action track, forgoing frenetic mayhem for a chugging powerhouse, building to a majestic finale.

    I don't get the love for this score. It's Silvestri on autopilot. It's rather bland and forgettable.

    Agreed. I've always felt Silvestri does his best work when given the opportunity to write strong thematic material. Since this obviously wasn't the case here, he just went through the motions. Likely fine for the film but if I want action from this composer, I'd rather just put on Mummy Returns or Judge Dredd.
