Top 10 BEST Marvel Cinematic Universe Films *SPOILERS*

avengers-age-of-ultron-group-shot

Hey everyone, Jack Drees here! Here’s a question. Why do people love superheroes? I can’t answer for everybody, but I honestly love them based on their unique abilities and backstories. Superheroes have been represented for years, but recently, they’ve been popular in the realm of movies. This even includes comic book based superheroes, and one group that has been kicking ass in terms of their comic book based movies is Marvel Studios. Sure, many comic book movies are based on Marvel characters, but Marvel Studios may as well be its own topic. Marvel Studios is known for its innovative cinematic universe, which takes a bunch of superheroes based on Marvel comics and puts them into one series. The superhero stories that are taken from the comic books thus far include: “Iron Man,” “The Incredible Hulk,” “Thor,” “Captain America,” “The Avengers,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Ant-Man,” and “Doctor Strange.” Sure, there are more heroes and stories in this universe, but these are ones that have gotten their own films dedicated to them. Also, part of me wonders if “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” which comes out in July, would even count in this universe once it is released because the interpretation of Spider-Man in that film was in an MCU film, and you have an MCU character as one of the film’s main characters, but this is under Sony, and Marvel Studios is owned by Disney. Nevertheless, these films are enjoyed by many and I’d personally say you should watch them, today we’re gonna count down my top 10 favorites in this category of films. Also, these are my personal 10 picks from worst to best, so with that in mind, I’m not forcing you to like these films, and regardless of whether or not you like them, I’m not saying you should at the very least appreciate them in the order listed on my specific countdown. One more thing, this is a list done in 2017, so the latest film released thus far in this series was “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” just keep that in mind depending on when you’re reading this. Without further ado, let’s get counting down my top 10 best Marvel Cinematic Universe films!

#10: Iron Man 2

Starting off this list is “Iron Man 2.” I really like this film for a number of reasons. First off, it’s one of the more fun movies in the MCU. It’s very lighthearted and while stakes are high at some points in this movie and there may be sparks of darkness, the vibe is very vivid and fun. The establishment for Vanko, the villain of the film, wasn’t bad either. Some people dislike him as a villain for what I know, but I found him to be serviceable. Not great, not terrible, he was… alright, yeah, let’s put it that way. Although there’s one thing that stands out to me about this character more than anything else and that is the bird gag that goes on throughout the film. At one point in the film, Vanko joins forces with Justin Hammer, Tony Stark’s business rival, the two are talking, and Vanko has a request. He says “I want my bird.” That’s one of the funniest things I’ve actually seen in the MCU thus far, and yet “Guardians of the Galaxy” is a thing. What a world! This movie also introduces Natalie Rushman, AKA Black Widow, played by Scarlett Johanson, who is one of my favorite actresses working today. I like her for her rather deep voice, how she displays herself in action scenes, the serious vibe she gives off, and I’LL JUST GET TO THE POINT! SHE’S F*CKING HOT!

The first action scene I witnessed featuring her character in this film was pure badassery, and it made me want to see more of her character. Kind of like with Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman who I prefer over Johanson’s Black Widow. Tony Stark in this movie is also funny as hell! Here are a few lines from him in this movie:

EXAMPLE 1:

TONY: How do you spell your name, Natalie?

NATALIE: R-U-S-H-M-A-N.

PEPPER: What, are you Googling her now?

TONY: I thought I was ogling her?

 

EXAMPLE 2:

SENATOR STERN: My priority is to get the Iron Man weapon turned over to the people of the United States of America.

TONY: Well, you can forget it. I am Iron Man. The suit and I are one. To turn over the Iron Man suit would be to turn over myself, which is tantamount in indentured servitude or prostitution, depending on what state you’re in. You can’t have it.

SENATOR: Look, I’m no expert…

TONY: In prostitution? Of course not, you’re a senator. Come on!

 

EXAMPLE 3:

TONY: You know, the question I get asked most often is, “Tony, how do you go to the bathroom in the suit?”

PAUSES WITH HIS EYES CLOSED

TONY: Just like that.

 

#9: Doctor Strange

One thing that a lot of comic book movies seem to get right is the visuals, here, I think it is represented better than quite possibly any other movie in the MCU. Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce, “Doctor Strange.” Thus far, this is the only origin story based film that is released in the MCU’s third phase, and I have to say as an origin story, it’s not half bad. Benedict Cumberbatch did a great job as Stephen Strange. Everything about his performance was believable and I was able to root for him throughout the film. However, some characters are not as memorable. I barely remember a number of the supporting cast, not to mention the villain was forgettable and didn’t seem to give off any charisma, and Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One is a very queer casting choice. I mean, Swinton didn’t do too bad as this character, but this is one of those times where Hollywood takes a character from something, whether it be real or fictional, and inserts someone to play this character whose race is different from the cast member playing the character. Also, Tilda Swinton’s white, so that definitely brought some outrage amongst certain comic book fans and moviegoers alike. However, this movie gets massive credit from me based on the breathtaking and hypnotizing visuals, which believe it or not, despite how much I appreciate them, are not even my favorite visual effects from a movie released the year this one came out. At times when I was watching this film, it was almost as if “The Matrix” and “Inception” had a baby. When I saw this in IMAX 3D in Providence, RI, I was simply stunned. Other pluses in this film include Wong (played by Benedict Wong. No, seriously, that’s the guy’s real name, look it up!), the humor, and the “I’ve come to bargain” scene. Give this film a watch sometime, I recommend it just for the visuals alone, but there are other things to enjoy in this film.

#8: The Avengers

Here we have an innovation to movies, “The Avengers!” Fun fact about this movie, this was the first MCU film I watched, and when I first heard about this film and maybe when I watched it for the first time, I had no idea these heroes were from other movies. I knew other movies with these heroes existed, but part of me thought this was its own thing. When this film came out in 2012, it was one of the most unique superhero films ever released. All the Marvel heroes that have gotten their own movie to this point come together to form a team, Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and the slightly more Incredible Hulk, and I say slightly more incredible because they got a new guy to play him and I like him better as the Hulk as opposed to Edward Norton. This team has to save humanity from being enslaved by Loki, who you may know as Thor’s brother. And when it comes to MCU villains, you’re gonna see a lot of entries on here where I think the villain is underwhelming, but this is one of the villains in the series I’m actually able to appreciate. Out of all the MCU films, this film has one of the best themes in the entire series. However, one character in the film I didn’t give a crap about was Hawkeye. To me, it was almost as if he was just there, not doing much except shooting bows, and that’s his character. It’s been almost a year since I last watched this movie, but I believe a fidget spinner has more of a personality than this guy. Although you’ve got some other characters returning such as Nick Fury, played by Samuel L. Jackson (ANY MOVIE EVER, HE’S THE BLACK GUY.), and you’ve even got Scarlett Johanson returning as Black Widow, and she’s a badass once again. There’s one scene that really intrigued me which had her character tied to a chair, and… yeah, screw it, I’m leaving this here.

I’m sorry but I can’t resist, I’m a 17 year old boy, this is who I am. It’s like a teen girl constantly putting pictures of their favorite boy band on Tumblr or something, is that what the kids are using now? I dunno. It’s natural. (Laughs uncontrollably)

Also, the big climax in New York City was fun and had me on the edge of my seat at times, but there are finales in the MCU I ended up remembering more than this. One of the finales I remember the most is in the first “Iron Man” movie, speaking of which…

#7: Iron Man

Here we have the film that started it all, the truth is, I AM talking about “Iron Man.” There’s so much to appreciate about this film. For one thing, it gave us a really likable origin story and one of the slightly more memorable villains in the MCU (although that doesn’t say much). Robert Downey Jr. is Iron Man in this film, who probably had NO IDEA where this Marvel series would end up today. The storyline of this film is that Tony Stark, a less than down to Earth billionaire is held captive in an Afghan cave, and he soon builds a mechanized armor suit, escaping the area, which leads to having to save the world from Obidiah Shane (played by Jeff Bridges). Something interesting about this movie is it started a trend that didn’t last very long in the MCU. Every movie that features Iron Man (except “The Incredible Hulk”) in this series would have an ACDC song. I’m kinda sad that didn’t last (last time this happened was in “The Avengers,” released in 2012) because I consider them to be one of my favorite rock bands, despite how a lot of their songs sound like they repeat themselves, and it felt like that would have been a signature theme whenever Iron Man comes on screen. Like, let’s take Wonder Woman, if the new “Wonder Woman” film didn’t have the theme that introduced her character in costume during “Batman v. Superman” I would have been disappointed. Maybe not appalled, maybe I would have been, I don’t know for sure, but still, you probably get what I’m saying. Also, as mentioned, the final battle in this movie was something that had me on the edge of my seat the first time I watched it. You know that portal in the sky cliche? That thing that looks so menacing but is now becoming somewhat overused? No? Watch “Suicide Squad,” “Fant4stic,” “Transformers: Dark of Moon,” or the “Ghostbusters” remake to see what I mean. You see it here too, but looking back at it, it’s a little different because this is one of those times that it doesn’t bring down any army or is primarily there to be menacing or anything. Much like “Iron Man 2,” which is lower on this list, Tony Stark is hysterical. Here are some of my favorite lines from him in this movie:

EXAMPLE 1:

TONY: Where’d you get that dress?

PEPPER: It was a birthday present… from you, actually.

TONY: I got great taste, don’t I? You, uh, wanna dance?

 

EXAMPLE 2:

CHRISTINE EVERHEART: You’ve been called the Da Vinci of our time. What do you have to say to that?

TONY: Absolutely ridiculous, I don’t paint.

 

EXAMPLE 3:

PEPPER: Tony, you have to go to the hospital. The doctor has to look at you.

TONY: I don’t have to do anything. I’ve been in captivity for three months. There are two things I want to do. One, I want an American cheeseburger, and the other…

PEPPER: That’s enough of that.

TONY: It’s not what you think. I want you to call for a press conference.

PEPPER: Call for a press conference? What on Earth for?

TONY: Hogan, drive. Cheeseburger first.

Interestingly enough, that last example, may have been an excuse just to get Burger King’s name on screen because, well, product placement. Nevertheless, “Iron Man” ultimately doesn’t disappoint and it definitely has some sort of rewatchability factor to it.

#6: Guardians of the Galaxy

Next up on this list is one of the installments in this universe that undoubtedly knows how to have fun, and that my friends, is “Guardians of the Galaxy.” There’s a lot to appreciate when it comes to this film. The characters, the fact that this popularized a comic that was somewhat obscure, the soundtrack, the humor, and the visuals. This film is about a bunch of criminals who are placed together and are forced to save the universe. One thing that is unique about this film compared to a bunch of other films in the MCU is that it doesn’t have many noticeable references to other portions of the series as a whole. If you watch a lot of the MCU films, you may see them bringing in other superheroes on the team (Captain America: Civil War, Ant-Man) or they give off references to the team itself (Iron Man 3). I personally don’t care whether or not they do this, it’s just something I noticed while watching this film. My favorite character in the movie has to be the badass raccoon, Rocket. He’s voiced by Bradley Cooper and a lot of his lines are delivered with precise timing and attitude. However, if I have any problems with the film, the one I’d point out immediately is the villain of the film, Ronan. He was just probably one of the most cliche villains I ever seen and it almost reminds me of a cartoon. I mean, Lee Pace, the actor who plays him, did alright as this character, it’s just that I think the writing for this villain leaves a bit to be desired. I also didn’t really care for Yondu or Nebula in this film, I cared for Yondu a little more in the sequel so that was an improvement, but Nebula was still someone I didn’t give a crap about so that’s a problem I have with both movies. It goes to show you that even when a film is an extravaganza of joy and fun throughout, it still has its drawbacks. Some people may not care about some of this, but I’m a keen observer, so I just have a lot of this racked up in my head. Even with that, I still consider this movie to be pretty great and it is up there as one of the funniest comic book movies of all time.

#5: Thor

Next up we have my personal favorite movie of the MCU’s first phase and that’s “Thor.” Personally, I think this one of the movies in the MCU that doesn’t get as much attention as it deserves. Maybe it’s because it’s currently one of the older ones, I don’t know. The story of this film is that the god known as Thor is cast out of Asgard and must live on Earth, and he soon has to defend it. Before all of this happens, it shows us the backstory of Thor and his brother, Loki, as children. While these two were both born to be kings, only one of them would ascend to the throne. One thing that stands out in this film is the visual effects, mainly the ones in Asgard. Everything there just looks so stunning and aesthetically pleasing. Much like a lot of films on this list, the villain here is somewhat forgettable. The main antagonist here is Loki, and he is a terrific villain in “The Avengers,” but I’ve only seen “Thor” once, so I’d probably have to see this movie multiple times to remember this antagonist. Although out of all the origin stories I’ve seen in the MCU thus far, I must say Thor’s origin story may be one of the most compelling. I also like the scene in the cafe where Thor is having a cup of coffee and it shows that his definition of manners happens to be clearly different to those of Earthlings. It’s a good way of showing Thor’s personality while adding some humor into the mix. I enjoyed the hell out of “Thor,” although if were tweaked just a bit, it would go from being a great movie to an amazing movie.

#4: Captain America: The Winter Soldier

At #4 we have the first movie I saw on its opening Thursday night, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” When I was going into this movie, I honestly had no idea what to expect, I saw MCU movies before, but I missed “Captain America: The First Avenger,” which by the way, is not on this list. I did see it, I just didn’t think it was as enjoyable as the other MCU movies. Also, before we go anywhere else with this film, I’ll start here…

Yeah, I’m leaving this here, I am who I am. OK, where were we? Well, the plot of this film is that Nick Fury is killed by an assassin known as the Winter Soldier, and several moments into this film, it is up to Captain America, Black Widow, and Falcon to take him down. While I do happen to really enjoy this film, it is not perfect in my book. First off, as mentioned recently, Nick Fury gets killed by an assassin, turns out he never died. Listen, I get that this is under Disney ownership and families watch this stuff and Nick Fury is a vital character to the MCU in general but can you just imagine how much more compelling this movie would have been if Nick Fury stayed dead the whole time? I mean, I like Nick Fury, and I’m glad I saw more of his character after this film, but still, it would have been awesome. “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” which was made under Disney ownership, managed to kill off just about every single character in that film, why couldn’t this?! Sure, “Rogue One” came out a couple of years after this movie, but still, my complaint stands. One thing I can appreciate about this film is the action. The CGI was well produced, all of it is fast paced with occasional witty lines, and there’s one moment with Black Widow that is just… I don’t know, it’s amazing. I would like to give a huge thank you for whoever came up with all the choreography for the fights. I don’t usually go back to watch this film often, but I’d give it a go every once in a while. Overall, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is a fun film and if I saw “Captain America: The First Avenger” before this and had the same thoughts about it then as I do now, this movie would probably ended up an interesting surprise.

#3: Ant-Man

Between #3 and #2, it was hard to decide what movie should go in what slot, but I’m putting them in these slots for what I consider justifiable reasons. So for #3, my pick is “Ant-Man.” The first time I watched this film was during a family reunion in Lincoln, NH. There was a matinee at a nearby theater on opening weekend and surprisingly the people I was going to see this with were some of the only people in the theater. After seeing this film, I thought this was going to be the best film of the year, but yeah, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” came out the same year so that definitely changed. This film involves a guy played by Paul Rudd who goes the name of Scott Lang, a criminal who is supposed to complete a heist for his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, and to help Scott do that, he has a supersuit that allows him to shrink to the size of an ant. There’s a lot to love about this movie. One of the standouts to me in this movie is the humor. Despite being a heist film, there’s not really much seriousness at hand, there is some interjected, but only when it needs to be. This goes to show how funny Marvel is in general. I also love Falcon’s cameo, which did a few things for the film: 1: Bring in humor, both before and after the appearance. 2: Bring in some cool action. 3: Show off what Ant-Man could do in one most engaging ways imaginable. When a film can do all of those things, you know you’ve got a good film on your hands. Evangeline Lilly is also in this film, who you may know as Tauriel from “The Hobbit” films, who actually happened to be a fictional character I had a crush on at one point, and one of the reasons why I love “The Desolation of Smaug” to death. I don’t give a crap about what anyone else says, that movie, is better than any of the “Lord of the Rings” films. I’M SERIOUS. The villain of this film is also one of the better villains in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so you know that might say something about this movie, the chance of having an at least above average villain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is like the chance of finding someone in the current year, 2017, who doesn’t have a smartphone. It’s the size of an ant! 😉 One of my favorite parts of the movie is the final battle between Ant-Man and Yellowjacket. It just showcases what these characters can do and it does it well. It’s also kinda fun to see two small beings throwing stuff on a toy train set and make it look like something much bigger than that. Also, you gotta love that moment when it shows Thomas the Tank Engine and it runs Yellowjacket over! That is pure gold! Speaking of which, there’s a moment where the Thomas toy gets thrown and it just grows to the size of an actual train, causing a lot of ruckus in the neighborhood where this fight is taking place. Moments like that, just show how strong Marvel is when it comes to humor. This film in the end, is just fun, entertaining, and humorous. Before going into this film, I was not thinking this was gonna be great. I thought differently after seeing the main trailer multiple times, thinking it was gonna be pretty cool, but still not at the level of great, boy was I wrong! This movie was awesome!

At #2 we have the first third installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which also happens to be the first film in Marvel’s second phase, that’s a lot of numbers! That’s right, I’m talking about “Iron Man 3.” This movie is about Tony Stark who now is receiving anxiety attacks, he’s forgetting what he eats for breakfast in the morning, he’s much more torn apart as a person than he used to be, which to be honest, kind of added to his character in the long run. Earth is being torn apart by a terrorist referred to as the Mandarin and it is up to Iron Man to deal with it. Although while doing so, he ends up getting into a situation that leaves him suitless, to specify, he crash lands in Tennessee and can’t get his suit working. There’s a lot to enjoy about “Iron Man 3,” I know some people have that one thing that they hate about “Iron Man 3” and that thing you’ll often hear is how they treat The Mandarin in this film. I personally don’t know what to think about it. While I do think everyone’s complaints are understandable based on what I’ve watched in the film, I also think the actual Mandarin isn’t all that bad. Both characters who have been portrayed as the Mandarin had great buildup. Let’s start off with Ben Kingsley’s character, Trevor Shatterly. When the film begins, he’s the one that is suspected to be the Mandarin, we first see this video where you can hear him narrating: “Some people call me a terrorist. I consider myself a teacher.” The whole setup behind Ben Kingsley’s character just makes him come off as this power-hungry man who terrorizes every single moment he can get. Aldrich Killian also has a good setup too, you see him hanging out with characters like Pepper, and one moment I remember well from this guy is this moment where he’s hanging out with Pepper in a room and he’s showing off his “big brain.” As far as other highlights go, I got to say the score, the action, the final battle, the scene where Tony’s home gets destroyed, oh yeah, and Tony’s epic lines once again! Here are some of his best lines from “Iron Man 3:”

 

EXAMPLE 1:

(CARRYING ELEVEN FALLING PASSENGERS WHO WERE ORIGINALLY ON A PLANE, TWO MORE ARE FALLING BUT NOT CARRIED)

TONY: Remember that game, Barrel of Monkeys? This is how it is: we got to catch all the monkeys!

 

EXAMPLE 2:

(TALKING TO A BOY WITH BLONDE HAIR AND GLASSES IN A RESTAURANT)

TONY: I loved you in “A Christmas Story” by the way.

 

EXAMPLE 3:

(TONY TRIES TO EMBRACE PEPPER)

PEPPER: Tony!

TONY: It’s OK…

PEPPER: I’m hot, I’ll hurt you!

TONY: (touches Pepper) No, you won’t. See? Not hot.

PEPPER: Am I going to be OK?

TONY: No. You’re in a relationship with me, nothing will ever be OK. But I had this twenty years ago when I was drunk, I can sort it out. I fix stuff.

 

However, this movie isn’t completely infallible. One thing that we got in every single movie Iron Man was in up to this point (excluding “The Incredible Hulk”) was at least one song by ACDC put somewhere throughout its runtime. We never got one here. I mean, I said I like the score, but to get music perfection throughout the entire film, at least one ACDC song should’ve been put in. Another thing is that the story seems to rip off “The Incredibles.” Both films feature a moment which the main character meets the villain, the villain wanted the hero to join them in something they had such a deep focus on, but the villain gets denial from the hero. When I first saw this film, I was not thinking about that, in fact, I was thinking of this film at one point ripping off another Pixar movie, that film, to be specific, is “Cars.” In the movie “Cars,” the main character, Lightning McQueen is supposed to be at a race in Los Angeles, but he gets left out of his Mack truck, he ends up never finding him, and he’s stuck somewhere for a period of time. Granted they have different setups, ramifications going on during this period, and you can also say they end up having different solutions. Despite the ripoff element, I really enjoy this movie, and I definitely rewatched this Marvel film more than any other. I mean, I found it for free on YouTube multiple times, so what could you really expect from this? The rewatchability factor is a reason why this is above “Ant-Man” on this list, I watched “Ant-Man” a couple of times, as opposed to this film, which I have watched many times.

 

My #1 pick is a movie some of you may have seen coming if you have read this blog before. I gave this movie a 10/10 in my review, it was my favorite movie of 2016, and it presented something I’ve yet to see in a superhero movie, perhaps something that needed to be shown to win certain audiences over, that something can be found in “Captain America: Civil War.” This, at its core is almost like a mini-Avengers film. It features almost every single hero featured in the MCU, it has a plot revolving around all of them, while at the same time, having a focus on “Captain America” material. Like for example, you get more of Bucky, literally the first scene in the film involves Bucky. That character is also no longer fighting against Captain America, because in this film, you see him alongside Captain America at times. All the Captain America stuff, while entertaining and fun to watch, is not even the best part of the movie, the best parts of the movie go to everything else. Even this one moment when the heroes are all together in a room, they’re sitting down and talking. Thaddeus Ross is there too, and he is telling all of these heroes that while they are in a sense, heroic, they do leave a sense of vigilantism among some people. This has been displayed by their destruction of various areas when doing battle. Destruction in areas like New York, Washington DC, Sovakia, and Lagos. This and other moments in this movie might as well be a service to those who are complaining about certain superhero movies. One movie that comes to mind is “Man of Steel.” In that movie, there is destruction all over the place, and some people view that as a degrading factor to the movie. In this movie, this, and the overall bringing up of the Hero Registration Act, which is supposed to limit a hero’s actions, basically brings up a divide in the Avengers. Tony Stark believes that it’s a good idea, and could save cities from being destroyed. Captain America however believes it’s a bad idea, and wants heroes to be able to save the world in whatever way they can without government interference. This leads to a civil war among the Avengers and one of the greatest throw-downs I’ve ever seen in a movie. This throw-down has a lot of highlights, some of which include Ant-Man, some of Tony’s lines, and the moment where everybody starts trotting towards each other. When I first saw that, I felt like a boy who just had a Hershey bar for the first time ever. The best part of the fight by a long shot is unarguably, Spider-Man. Now, I may be a Spider-Man fanboy, but as a fanboy, I’m able to recognize when Spider-Man is done properly, and they MASTERED him here! Before the whole fight begins, we meet Peter Parker with Tony Stark in Queens, NY, and they’re talking to each other. Peter says he can’t help Tony at first because he’s got homework, not only is that funny, but just goes to show how Peter is as a character. He is a hero that has to juggle his hero life and his personal life at the same time, and that is something from my experience as a human being, I think I have seen more from Spider-Man as opposed to literally any other superhero I’ve laid my eyes or ears upon. And during the fight, he turns into a character that is funnier than Iron Man, funnier than any of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and also MAYBE even funnier than Deadpool, if not as funny. He’s throwing quips around the entire fight, it’s just gold, the whole theater was cheering and laughing for his character when I saw this movie for the first time. Oh yeah, and later on in the fight, he’s spinning a web around the enormous Ant-Man’s legs, and he calls “The Empire Strikes Back” a “really old movie” and he refers to the AT-ATs as “the walking thingies.” JUST WOW! I HOPE TO PLUTO THAT “SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING” IS GOOD, BECAUSE WE HAVE THIS AMAZING INTERPRETATION OF SPIDER-MAN RIGHT HERE! One of the benefits here with this Marvel movie compared to other Marvel movies is that there is no main villain that appears in the movie and receives a tremendous amount of focus. It’s up to the audience to decide who is good or bad. I mean, for Team Iron Man or Team Captain America, I’d say hero-wise, Iron Man is my pick, but if we are talking about points revolving around the Hero Registration Act, I seriously don’t know what to say! Both sides make really compelling and valid arguments that I cannot stick with one of them! So throughout the film, I ended up rooting for Iron Man as a hero (not to mention Spider-Man), but was open-minded and was intrigued toward what Captain America’s points were. On a final note, I think the Russo Brothers should direct every single Captain America related film, TV show, whatever it may be as long as they live. This movie has the best action in the MCU, both in terms of situations at hand and how it is shot, thinking about this only gets me more excited to see “Avengers: Infinity War,” that movie sounds like it’s gonna be a blast! Guys, this movie deserves my #1 pick, it is the most unique film in the MCU, it’s a good popcorn movie, not to mention it’s a movie that makes you think and intrigues you to do so, and it’s also just plain fun at the same time! That’s it, I’m done. I think I talked about everything. …Wait a minute, I didn’t. BLACK WIDOW’S IN THIS MOVIE!

(Laughs for a few seconds almost as if it is happening in shame) Why do I do this to myself? I don’t know, I kinda have a crush on Scarlett Johanson, what else can I say?

Anyways, I hope you all enjoyed this countdown, I actually do have another post planned, I’m thinking of working on it not too long from now, maybe hours from when this gets posted, maybe sometime this week, we’ll find out, but it’s gonna be on the highly anticipated movie, “Dunkirk.” It’s not a review, the movie doesn’t come out until July 21st in all cinemas, although it is gonna be released in IMAX 70mm film, standard 70mm film, not to mention 35mm film two days prior, and that is something that I intend to focus on. Stay tuned for that, and also, staying on the topic of Marvel, I figured I’d have links down below to all the Marvel Cinematic Universe film reviews I’ve done up to this point. These links will take you to my reviews of “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” “Doctor Strange,” and “Captain America: Civil War.” Be sure to check out those reviews, and stay tuned for more reviews! Scene Before is your click to the flicks!
