Avengers: Endgame was even bigger than expected delivering a massive $350 million debut at the box office this weekend. It also made $1.2 billion worldwide. It is the biggest movie maybe ever.

Instead this week we ranked out favorite Marvel movie moments as a way to look back and anticipate what happens in Endgame
Last weekend Tiger Woods won his fifth Masters yesterday. It was his first Major tournament victory in almost 11 years, and his 15th overall. Does this mean he is back? Was this a one-off?

This week Ryan and Zach talk about that and share their thoughts on the biggest superhero movie that we can think of - Shazam! and the biggest name in the music industry Bey, and her documentary Homecoming.

Honorable Mentions: Vice, Can You Ever Forgive Me, Deadpool 2, Bohemian Rhapsody, The Favourite
10) Green Book
Green Book takes audiences on a surprisingly smooth ride through potentially bumpy subject matter, fueled by Peter Farrelly's deft touch and a pair of well-matched leads.
Roma finds writer-director Alfonso Cuarón in complete, enthralling command of his visual craft - and telling the most powerfully personal story of his career.
8) Mission Impossible: Fallout
Fast, sleek, and fun, Mission: Impossible - Fallout lives up to the "impossible" part of its name by setting yet another high mark for insane set pieces in a franchise full of them.
7) Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse matches bold storytelling with striking animation for a purely enjoyable adventure with heart, humor, and plenty of superhero action.
Like its augmented protagonist, Upgrade's old-fashioned innards get a high-tech boost -- one made even more powerful thanks to sharp humor and a solidly well-told story.
5) Crazy Rich Asians
With a terrific cast and a surfeit of visual razzle dazzle, Crazy Rich Asians takes a satisfying step forward for screen representation while deftly drawing inspiration from the classic -- and still effective -- rom-com formula.
4) A Quiet Place
A Quiet Place artfully plays on elemental fears with a ruthlessly intelligent creature feature that's as original as it is scary -- and establishes director John Krasinski as a rising talent.
3) Avengers Infinity War
Avengers: Infinity War ably juggles a dizzying array of MCU heroes in the fight against their gravest threat yet, and the result is a thrilling, emotionally resonant blockbuster that (mostly) realizes its gargantuan ambitions.
2) Star Is Born
With appealing leads, deft direction, and an affecting love story, A Star Is Born is a remake done right -- and a reminder that some stories can be just as effective in the retelling.
1) Black Panther
This is the best Superhero movie since The Dark Knight. It’s one of the best storied Marvel’s told both in relation to the universe all the while telling one of the MCU's most absorbing stories -- and introducing some of its most fully realized characters.
Hosts: Zach Stone and Ryan Berger
