Ranking the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe)

So far, there have been 16 movies in the MCU, or Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Spider-Man: Homecoming just having come out in July. This is a ranking of all 16 movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe:

16) Iron Man 2– Even if you’re a HUGE Iron Man fan like me, don’t watch Iron Man 2: it’s boring, unentertaining, has a weak villain, and only has one really good fight scene. 2.5/5

15) The Incredible Hulk– The Incredible Hulk has a few impressive action sequences, but it lacks humor, the fun elements of other Marvel movies, and major connections to the rest of the Marvel Universe. If you’re new to the Hulk character, and want a decent origin story, watch The Incredible Hulk. 3/5

14) Thor: the Dark World– Thor: the Dark World is an awesome movie. The Dark World has some really funny moments, as well as breathtaking action and special effects. It shows the audience more of Loki, and his chemistry with Thor is one of the best parts of the movie. Overall, Thor: the Dark World is an entertaining movie worth watching. 3.5/5

13) Thor– Thor wouldn’t have been this far down on the list if it hadn’t been for all the other Marvel movies. Don’t get me wrong, Thor is awesome- the action’s great, it’s pretty funny, and the special effects are amazing- but it’s not as good as some of the more recent additions to the MCU. 4/5

12) Captain America: the First Avenger– The First Avenger is a great movie, although not as good as it sequel, the Winter Soldier. It has some funny moments, spectacular action, and likable characters. However, it does start a little slow.  It also boasts a strong performance on the part of Chris Evans. If you like Captain America and want a good story packed with action and humor, watch the First Avenger. 4/5

11) Avengers: Age of Ultron– Age of Ultron is definitely not as good as its predecessor, but is still pretty good. It has amazing special effects, awesome fight sequences, and is pretty funny. But it is also overstuffed and and the romance between Bruce Banner (Hulk) and Black Widow is hard to watch and terrible. While the villain may seem a little generic,  James Spader is great as Ultron. For die hard fans, Age of Ultron will please, but probably not as much for casual fans. 4/5

10) Iron Man– The one that started off all the MCU movies and created the genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist we’ve all come to know and love. And it is a pretty good movie. It serves as a great origin story for Iron Man ( ’cause let’s be honest, who knew about “Iron Man” until 2008?), provided really good action, and was pretty funny. It also picked the PERFECT person to play Tony Stark: Robert Downey Jr.- could we now imagine anyone else playing him? Looking at it now, it may not seem as great as all the new ones, but it was quite original in 2008. 4.5/5

9) Ant-Man– In spite of its silly concept, Ant-Man turned out to be a wonderful Marvel movie, different from the norm that the Avengers set. Yet it’s still full of humor, action, and dazzling special effects that’ll prove this unique Marvel movie is up to par with the rest of them. Ant-Man isn’t only a superhero movie, it’s also a heist movie- Ant-Man has to steal a similar suit from his mentor’s rival who will use it for evil (yes, I am aware that sound almost identical to the first Iron Man, but there is still a bunch separating it from Iron Man). Paul Rudd also provides a great everyman performance as Scott Lang, an ordinary thief who becomes a superhero. Ant-Man is one of the best Marvel movies that is definitely worth watching. 4.25/5

8) Doctor Strange– This movie just proves that Marvel hasn’t lost their hot streak in 8 years because, wow, it is good! Doctor Strange may follow a similar formula to Iron Man and story to Iron Man, but it definitely feels fresh throughout. Doctor Strange has amazing character development, and acting by, well, the whole cast! And the visuals…The visuals in Doctor Strange warrant it the best-looking Marvel movie ever, and it explores the more…mystical and magical realm of the MCU. Its action bounces off these visuals and is…different, to say the least, than the rest of the Marvel movies. Finally, its score is amazing and it has humor and comic relief sprinkled throughout, that hits at all the right moments. 4.25/5

7) Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2- Guardians Vol. 2 is fantastic. The first movie being the intergalactic, heartwarming delight that it was, there were some pretty high expectations going into this.  Guardians 2 meets those expectations for sure: it doubles up on what we loved about the first one, including its action, comedy, dazzling visuals, intriguing characters, and heart, but also tries something new. Guardians takes each of its characters and gives them an arc, exploring their distinct backstories and dynamics. Baby Groot is just…aagh, SO CUTE, and the movie packs the biggest, most impactful emotional punch yet in the MCU.  Kurt Russell is spectacular as Ego, Star-Lords father, and also, that soundtrack.  However, the plot is messy and you don’t really know what the overall purpose is until the end of the second act: it lacks urgency and can get choppy at times. 4.25/5

6) Iron Man 3– Iron Man 3 is a truly spectacular movie. It’s an entertaining movie full of action, special effects, wit, and humor. Iron Man 3 not only shows  the suit in action: it shows Tony Stark without his suit of armor, which some say worsens the movie, but I think actually betters it: it’s not all about the suit, but about what Stark would do without it. One down, though, was that the twist on the villain was smart, but disappointing. Iron Man 3 is a funny, smart, well-acted, and action-packed Marvel movie, and considerably one of the best. 4.35/5

5) Spider-Man: Homecoming- The movie that brought Spider-Man back to Marvel, Spider-Man: Homecoming not only gave us the best version of Spidey ever put to screen, but also hysterical comedy, great action, and awesome characters. Spider-Man: Homecoming has the classic high school feel of a John Hughes movie, but doesn’t skimp on the CGI action. It has great, interesting characters, but never ceases being entertaining. It has a charismatic, believable performance from Tom Holland, but also a surprising, engaging plot. And Peter Parker’s best friend, Ned was pretty great as well. It might have some low stakes and a tad too many characters (not to mention the spoilery trailers), but those are minor gripes on an otherwise fantastic movie. 4.5/5

4) Captain America: the Winter Soldier- Many have called it the greatest Marvel movie of all time. And it is truly an AMAZING movie. Its plot is great, it’s action is some of the best we’ve seen from a Marvel movie, and it has a huge plot twist that is actually permanent, unlike some other superhero movies. It’s thrilling and always keeps you on your toes. It even has lots of humor to lighten the mood when it gets dark. Also, Chris Evans gives a great performance as Cap, who has a hard time accepting the world as it is today. 5/5

3) Guardians of the Galaxy– The movie that everyone, including myself, were skeptical about, with characters that literally no one knew. It actually turned out to be AWESOME! There’s a certain magic to seeing Guardians for the first time, and that retains even on repeat viewings. Guardians is probably tied for funniest MCU movie with Ant-Man, and had moments that made me laugh out loud. It embraces its Marvel movie core, with huge CGI battles, and great special effects, and has a ton heart. Its characters were unique, likable, and hilarious, with some of them being a walking tree and a machine gun-wielding raccoon (yes, those are actual movie characters). It provided us with a new tone for Marvel movies, being more of a space opera movie, and I truly love this movie. Guardians of the Galaxy is a really good movie that, despite all doubts, will entertain you for a good two hours. 5/5

2) The Avengers– The Avengers is a movie for fans of all Marvel superheroes- whether it’s Thor, Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man, Hawkeye, or Black Widow. It managed to bring the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes together without being overstuffed. Its acting as well is really strong. The cast and their chemistry is a major highlight of the movie. It also has a strong story, and a great villain, unlike other MCU entries.  It’s super funny, has awesome large-scale special effects and action, a great cast, and is the second best MCU movie yet. 5/5

1) Captain America: Civil War– The movie that all the others have been building up to since The Avengers. And Civil War definitely delivers.  It is action-packed, contains one of the best fights in the MCU- the airport fight- and has lots of humor throughout. Newcomers Spider-Man and Black Panther are wonderful, and the first adds great comic relief.  Even the villain, Helmut Zemo, was pretty strong and had believable motivations. This movie basically hits every spot, with well-developed characters, a smart plot, great action, staying light-hearted, and going into darker ideas. Not to mention the fantastic acting from the entire cast, that really brings out each characters motivations. 5/5

That’s my ranking of the MCU movies, but what’s yours? Tell your opinion in the comments section below.

Most Anticipated Movies for Kids of 2017

So, 2016 has ended, and now it’s 2017, which means…a whole new year of movies!

Here are my honorable mentions for my most anticipated movies of 2017:

The Fate of the Furious: This looks great, and was really hard to keep off my list. The Fate of the Furious is the sequel to Furious 7 and is about what happens when Dominic Toretto turns evil and abandons his loyal team of racers. This movie looks like a ton of fun, and they continue to up the ante with each movie getting more and more ridiculous, which by no means is a bad thing. The Fate of the Furious comes out on April 14, 2017. Check out the official trailer right here!

Despicable Me 3: The fourth entry in the smash-hit Despicable Me series, this movie looks fun. Gru is back, and now with his wife Lucy, and together, they must face a villain that’s stuck in the 80s. The movie definitely looks funny, and delivers a few laughs in the trailer. Watch the trailer right here!

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales: The fifth movie in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise follows pirate Jack Sparrow on the run from an old rival, Capitán Salazar, who sets out to kill every living pirate. The trailer is tense, and gives us a great look at the villain, who looks just the right amount of scary. Check out the teaser trailer here!

Now, on to my Top 10:

10. The LEGO Batman Movie: This spinoff to The LEGO Movie is about exactly what the title suggests: LEGO Batman. He’s back, and to protect Gotham from the Joker, he has to learn to take a sidekick and recruits Robin. All trailers for this movie have been pretty funny so far, and The LEGO Movie was incredibly witty. This movie looks equally clever, and promises both great voice acting, and lots of laughs. It comes out on February 10, 2017. Check out the latest trailer here

9. Kong: Skull Island: Kong: Skull Island is a reboot of the King Kong movies and actually looks really, really great! Both the Comic-Con trailer and the second one look awesome, and the trailers show both some really cool moments with the giant ape and some moments of humor. It’s about a group of explorers in the 70s venturing into an island where Kong is king, but their hostility angers the giant. The movie has an all-star cast including Tom Hiddleston, Samuel Jackson, John Goodman, Brie Larson, and John C. Reilly.  This one comes out on March 10, 2017. Enjoy the newest trailer here!

8. Split: M. Night Shamalayan’s thriller about a man named Kevin with 23 distinct personalities inside his head abducting three girls looks fantastic. All the trailers for this movie have been tense in all the right ways, and the movie looks like a spectacular thriller. Split is released on January 20, 2017. Check out the second official trailer right here!

7. War for the Planet of the Apes: The third movie in the amazing Apes trilogy, War for the Planet of the Apes is about, well, the war between the apes and humans that the previous movies have been building up to. The first one was great, and the second one was even better, so I’m pretty sure this one’s going to be great. The trailer boasts great CGI, and looks like a gritty, well-acted war movie. War for the Planet of the Apes is released on July 14, 2017. Enjoy the trailer right here!

6. Thor: Ragnarok: The third Thor movie promises something entirely new. With Jeff Goldblum playing the villain Grandmaster and Hulk there for the whole movie (yup, you read that right), and even a possible Doctor Strange cameo, this movie has all the ingredients for a hit. Comedy director Taika Waititi is behind the camera for this one and the footage from Comic-Con is hilarious. It showed what Thor was doing during Civil War and was really, really funny. Ragnarok comes out on November 3, 2017. Watch it here!

5. Wonder Woman: There’s a lot riding on this movie. It has to “fix” the DC Extended Universe, warm up it to critics, and pull of the first female-led superhero movie. But it looks like it can do that and then some. It’s about Wonder Woman during WWI, and looks excellent. The trailers give awesome action and humor as well. Wonder Woman is released on June 2, 2017. Watch the newest trailer here!

4. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: The only reason this is number 4 is just because I’m more excited for 3 other movies, but, wow, this looks GOOD. Guardians 1 was exceptional, and delivered something… different, which makes it one of my favorite Marvel movies.  This movie has so many things going for it, from it’s awesome cast which now includes Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell, or its funny, action-packed trailers. This is a sci-fi superhero flick that I am absolutely sure will deliver. Guardians 2 comes out on May 5, 2017. Enjoy the teaser right here!

3. Spider-Man: Homecoming: They’re finally doing it right. Spidey was my favorite character from Civil War and is one of my favorite comic book characters. This movie finally skips the origin story and gives us something special: a John Hughes-style high school movie about both Peter and Spider-Man. Not to mention the PERFECT casting of Tom Holland, who feels like an outsider high schooler. And Iron Man’s going to be in this! They are finally going to share the screen, and I know it’s going to deliver. Homecoming is released on July 7, 2017. Watch the first trailer here!

2. Justice League: So, the first official trailer for this dropped at Comic-Con, and I may or may not have seen that trailer 89 times. This movie brings us the iconic DC team to the big screen for the first time, and it’s going to be awesome. In the wake of Superman’s death, Bruce Wayne recruits a team of metahumans, including The Flash, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Cyborg, to stop a mysterious supervillain. The movie looks amazing and the trailer is riddled with fresh humor, and some cool group shots. This comes out on November 17, 2017. Enjoy it right here!

1. Star Wars: Episode VIII: It’s Star Wars! Episode VIII is the sequel to Force Awakens, and has a few questions to answer from the last movie. Plus, it has the return of Luke Skywalker and a hopefully well-handled farewell to Han Solo. Let’s hope it’s as good, if not better than Force Awakens. There haven’t been any official trailers, except this short clip of the end of Force Awakens, but I would check out Force Awakens again if you haven’t already!

Well, that’s my list, but what’s yours? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Doctor Strange- SPOILER REVIEW

DISCLAIMERS–SPOILERS AHEAD!!!                                                                    

Just want to make this super clear, THIS IS A SPOILER REVIEW!!! If you haven’t seen Doctor Strange, go check it out, it’s a great movie, and you can read my SPOILER-FREE review right here!

Now, Doctor Strange: there are a LOT of things I love about this movie; after watching it a second time, besides the slightly familiar formula, there’s not much wrong with it. Doctor Strange hits the spot on all fronts, and following the formula even helps it, as it makes it a surefire box office, and at least moderate critical, success. Let’s talk about why…

This movie, above all, is just a lot of fun. Let’s start with the opening sequence. You open to a shot of Kamar-Taj, and the movie wastes no time getting to the (AWESOME) fight between the Ancient One and Kaecilius. Right off the bat, the movie establishes what the next two hours are going to be like, mind-bending, action-packed, fun. The fight also does a great job of showing the villain and his power and conflict with the Ancient One. Also, it carries those amazing special effects in that it uses the Inception-esqué city bending…technique, which we see later as well.

We cut to arrogant neurosurgeon Stephen Strange, and the scenes of him in the hospital show off his arrogance and brilliance simultaneously, which leads up to the visually pleasing car crash sequence. This is one of those times that sound actually matters in a movie. As soon as the Lamborghini hits another car, I still jump a little in my seat as the car topples of the highway at high-speed and crashes.

When Strange arrives in Kamar-Taj, we come across one of the sequence that makes this movie live up to its name. As soon as the Ancient One touches his forehead, we witness what makes this movie live up to its title as Strange travels through multiple kaleidoscopic dimensions, and one particularly entertaining one is the hands sprouting out of hands dimension. For eagle-eyed viewers, you see glimpses of Dormammu, which pays off later in the movie. Strange’s subsequent training sequence/second act is also fun, and boasts some humor as well (Yes, I’m talking about that Beyonce moment with Wong).

After the training sequence, the movie becomes more and more action-packed. The New York Sanctum battle is great, and the Cloak of Levitation proves itself as one of this movie’s best characters. Strange’s action and banter with Kaecilius is entertaining, and when Kaecilius describes the benefits of the Dark Realm, you see Strange (partially) convinced, which just proves Benedict Cumberbatch’s great acting. Then, his fight with one of Kaecilius’s zealots (played by Scott Adkins) is a lot of fun, with their movements affecting small things in the real world.

The New York battle truly shows off the Inception-inspired effects, but it improves…a lot. The fight in the Mirror Realm is REALLY cool, and the Ancient One coming in only improves it.

We then get an amazing, actually touching moment from the Ancient One that truly makes her an amazing character. She had already had some good, even funny moments with Strange earlier, but this one tops all. Tilda Swinton gives her all in this performance, and her chemistry with Cumberbatch is great. Her explaining of what she sees for Strange and how she saw her death earlier is one of the most touching scenes from a Marvel movie, which normally doesn’t happen.

Then, the SPECTACULAR Hong Kong battle. Strange’s use of the Eye of Agamotto is just…really cool, and it utilizes some great special effects. The way they incorporate action into that is even cooler. Watching Strange and Kaecilius fight stuck in time is definitely a lot of fun. Then, the same thing happens with Dormammu in probably my favorite scene. The defeat of Dormammu through a time loop is clever, to say the least, and shows that Strange uses his brains, rather than fighting. Also, it’s pretty funny to see Strange’s smug smile and Dormammu’s frustration at the time loop.

Benedict Cumberbatch, as I said in my spoiler-free review, is great, and his character is both well-developed and entertaining. He has wonderful chemistry with all of the cast members, leading up to some pretty funny parts. Chiwetel Ejiofor is also good as Mordo, as Benedict Wong is with Wong. Rachel McAdams’s character also delivers some fun scenes with Strange both early on and around the middle of the movie.

Overall, Doctor Strange is a truly amazing movie, and one of Marvel’s best, and it delivers on all fronts.

Batman v Superman- 2nd Viewing

DISCLAIMER-Spoilers for BvS ahead

Batman v Superman just came on Blu-ray and DVD on Tuesday, so I decided to rewatch it. In rewatching it, I noticed some positive aspects I hadn’t pointed out in my original review. First off, I didn’t point out that the movie’s opening, Batman watching Superman destroy half of Metropolis in trying to fight Zod is amazing. It shows Man of Steel from Batman’s perspective, and just makes his motivations so clear–everything he built was destroyed by Superman’s immense power. It really points out just how much potential destruction Superman could cause with his powers.

Secondly, I said that the movie lacked a sense of humor and fun, and while the first part may be true, the movie is still fun. The fight scenes and overall plot is enjoyable, and the movie still has fun, just not as much humor.

Thirdly, I didn’t mention the warehouse scene. The warehouse scene, in which Batman rescues Martha Kent from Luthor’s henchmen, is amazing. Although I dislike the fact that Batman kills in this representation, this fight is simply awesome. It shows how Batman isn’t in his early years, and is experienced. The action is well-choreographed, and might be my favorite scene from the movie.

Next, I must clear up my reception of Jesse Eisenberg’s performance as Lex Luthor. Although it’s not fitting toward the character (the comic book Lex is more assertive) his performance is cool. I dislike it because it’s more of a mini-Joker or mini-Riddler. Also, he offers more philosophical ideas than you watch the movie for–you’re watching it to see Batman and Superman fight! The performances by Amy Adams and Jeremy Irons as Lois Lane and Alfred, respectively, are also pretty good.

Another issue with BvS is the actual fight you want to watch the movie for–it’s only 8 minutes long! The fight, for the time it lasts, is cool, but the reason for the fight prevents you from enjoying it. Superman and Batman are only fighting because Luthor manipulated Batman and he’s holding Martha unless Superman kills Batman. You know Superman won’t actually put up a fight because he would never kill Batman even if someone was controlling him. This prevented me from truly enjoying the fight, and even made me dislike Batman a little bit.

The death of Superman is both a positive and negative aspect of the movie. Although it is sad, his death is very well-handled and really shows how much Superman is willing to do for Earth. It shows that he accepts it as his planet, and that he is willing to sacrifice himself for it. What I dislike about his death is that He‘s. Not.  Actually. Dead. This issue has come up time and again in superhero movies. It happened with Bucky in Captain America: The First Avenger. It happened with Loki in Thor. It happened with Phil Coulson in The Avengers. I can keep going. Deaths in superhero movies have no effect anymore. You know that whoever dies is going to be brought back. Therefore, Superman’s death had no weight whatsoever. First off, they don’t even give you the benefit of the doubt–they literally show that he’s gonna be brought back by showing the dirt on his grave flying. Second of all, you know studios would never pass up on the option of having another character to sell merch with. So deaths in movies have become empty and have no impact. <sigh>

Finally, I will mention the amazing soundtrack in Batman v Superman, which I didn’t talk about in my review. The soundtrack, composed by Hans Zimmer, actually added a lot to the movie, especially Wonder Woman’s theme. Normally I don’t notice the soundtrack in movies, but Batman v Superman made me notice. The other movie I had seen where I noticed Zimmer’s score was Inception, and I absolutely loved that soundtrack. I think that overall Zimmer’s work on soundtracks is great, and definitely improved Batman v Superman.

That was my spoiler-filled, 2nd discussion of Batman v Superman. Is there anything I missed or you disagree with? Leave your thoughts in the comments!

Oscar Nominations 2016

The Oscar nominations for 2016 are finally here! Check out the full list of nominations here!

The Martian received 7 nominations, including Best Picture, Visual Effects, and more! Star Wars: The Force Awakens received 5 nominations, including Visual Effects, Sound Editing, and more. I think that The Martian deserves to win Best Picture, as it was an entertaining, funny, and thrilling sci-fi movie. For Visual Effects, I think that Star Wars: The Force Awakens should win, for it had amazing special effects, shown a lot through large-scale space battles. Finally, I believe that Inside Out should win Animated Feature Film because it was a funny, touching film, one of the best animated movies of the year. Which movies do you think will win in these categories? Leave your opinion in the comments.
