Leave no Trace - proper film that!
The father/daughter relationship was so well acted, Both so heart achingly believable. Most of the cast were real Mountain folk which added so much depth, this along with the forests of Oregon really gave the film a sense of be-livability.

Thanks for the list. I'll check some out.

I think my problem is I watch the big hitters at the cinema and feel numb after leaving the cinema. I'd even go as far as saying Star Wars franchise has put me off watching movies altogether the last few years. I watched Deadpool 2 and didn't get the humour or why everyone loved it so much. Just found it all cringey. Im getting old. Seen CGI fiction shit done to death now. Give me a classic movie about real people like Brassed Off over the latest Marvel bollocks.

Leave No Trace . Really wanted to like it, I love slow films, but half way through was just bored and gave up, what am I missing?

Nothing stupid about this at all, a large part of cinema is too entertain and this was easily the most balls out entertaining film of 2018, an unexpected joy.

Good that George and everyone finally sees what I saw.

True that brother,now that George has sold up he's free to critisize, even though his second three films were shit he has pointed out he tried and did produce original stories so he tried but failed, all that is commendable, now this bitch called Kathleen Kennedy runs the whole franchise for disney and has already sacked directors who didn't just copy the first three films and bring a #metoo #timesup sensibility to the new films, that last one where Laura Dern was in charge and all the men (oscar Isacc) were made to look pathetic was awful, Rian johson has been pussified as a director, just swallowed the modern lefist pc bullshit, as an OG fan this is really dissapointing.

Oh and props too you you were the first one on here to point it out, yuo won't change the snowflakes minds on here though, they are fully brainwashed.

As in Disney’s Coco? Was 2017, but it’s ace yeah.

Would I be able to watch Infinity War without watching any of the previous films? And if not, what do I need to watch and in which order?

The list below is supposedly of the ones you need to watch but I'd just go with Guardians of the Galaxy 1 & Thor: Ragnarok as they're both actually quite good and relevant to the story.

"Guardians of the Galaxy" (2014)
"Captain America: The First Avenger" (2011)
"The Avengers" (2012) …
"Captain America: Civil War" (2016) …
"Doctor Strange" (2016) …
"Thor: Ragnarok" (2017) …
"Guardians of the Galaxy" (2014), "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" (2017) …
"Black Panther" ( 2018 )

Everyone going on about Mandy, so thought i'd give it a go, don't get the hype, very weird… each to their own i guess, like a f***ed up version of the Wicker Man

Oh please, be original, Christina Hoff Summers critics came out with this line fucking years ago, write your own copy dude, copying everyone elses is beyond pathetic.
