Avengers: Infinity War (2018 Film) Review

 Like almost everyone, I am a big fan of the MCU. I still can remember the hype of the original Avengers film and for the most part, it met the hype. I didn't care so much for the 2nd Avengers movie with Ultron. But most films in the MCU were really good, and I had high hopes for this 3rd movie.

Fact of the Day: Soviet China

Before the Chinese Civil War was over, communists under Mao Zedong established a very small section of China as its own country called the Chinese Soviet Republic, modeling itself very much after the Soviet Union. However after a few years, the country collapsed right at the start of the World War II (for China) and China would be at a various state of civil war until 1949.
