Where Does ‘Hawkeye’ Rank in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Even though we’re a few weeks removed from the Hawkeye era I’m finally getting around to ranking it in the MCU. Once again, this will be a slightly different ranking because it’s always shifting for me but, yeah, here we go. Let’s add this thirty-second installment to the list.  

32. The Incredible Hulk

Eternals isn’t the worst MCU film. This is. It’s so bad it isn’t on Disney+ and I don’t care.

31. Thor

It’s got one of the best-acted scenes in the franchise between Tom Hiddleston and Anthony Hopkins when Loki’s birthright is revealed but…that’s the only great thing about this movie. Oh, and the first thirty minutes are pretty fun to watch. The rest is a snoozefest.

30. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

There’s too much hollering, the jokes aren’t as funny, Ego is an okay villain, Yondu’s death is corny, and Gamora gets sidetracked for this story a bit. The only thing that keeps me coming back is how visually stunning this movie is.

Where Does ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Rank in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

The list is getting longer and now I get to add Spider-Man: No Way Home to the MCU’s ranks. I can’t believe I just wrote that. Wow, we’re finally here in the No Way Home era. So fun! Okay, enjoy!

31. The Incredible Hulk

Where Does ‘Eternals’ Rank in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

It’s time to see where Eternals lands. Oh, and because I forgot, let’s see where I end up ranking What If…? as well. Enjoy!

It’s Batman Day: ‘The Dark Knight’ Is Hands Down the Best Superhero Movie Ever Made

Have you ever seen a perfect movie? A movie so undeniably brilliant and spot on that the more you watch it the better it gets? A movie that’s so good that you kind of can’t believe it’s that incredible? The Dark Knight is that movie for me.

I don’t watch The Dark Knight often. But every so often I get the unshakable desire to see it. And so last night with that fervor upon me I decided to watch it.

For two hours and 32 minutes, I was sucked into the dark and demented world of Gotham where a man as horrifically twisted and brilliant as The Joker resides to wreak havoc on Gotham’s citizens for no reason other than pure amusement. And as the story slowly builds upon The Joker’s madness the movie gets better and better and better until one can only stare at the screen in appreciative awe.

The Dark Knight is unlike any other superhero movie that’s been created. In fact, can we even say it’s a superhero movie? Batman isn’t exactly a hero, as the movie made clear. He’s just a man in a cynical world and sometimes the right choices mean you have to become the villain. Simple as that. But I guess that’s the reason why he’s a hero, right?

Where Does ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ Rank in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

I’m fresh off of a three-week Marvel marathon and I’ve seen Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings so it’s time to do a major revamp on this MCU ranking list. Some movies and series will stay where they are in the list but I have definitely garnered new feelings for several of this franchise’s installments. So, with no further delay, let’s see where Shang-Chi ends up.

28. The Incredible Hulk

It’s still at the bottom of the list and most likely, always will. But at least we will be getting Abomination’s return in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and She-Hulk, meaning this ugly duckling of the franchise is finally starting to become a bit more relevant again.

27. Thor

I’ve acquired a slight fondness for this movie since the last time I watched it. It’s got one of the most emotional and best acted scenes in the MCU between Tom Hiddleston and Anthony Hopkins and it’s funnier than expected too. But…and that’s a very large but, it just isn’t that great. It never has been.

26. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

I know some people love this movie but I’m not one of them. It’s a visually impressive film and Ego is a decent villain but this movie just doesn’t strike me as fun, funny, or fantastic.

Where Does ‘Loki’ Rank in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Black Widow is out and having seen it twice, once in IMAX and once at home on Disney+, I can honestly say it’s one of the best Marvel movies. But where does it stack up against the other installments in the MCU? Let’s find out, shall we.

27. The Incredible Hulk

26. Iron Man 3

I can’t tell you the last time I enjoyed this movie. Oh, actually I can. In 2013 when I saw it the first two times in theaters. Since then, Iron Man 3 has become a pointless sequel that barely adds any value to the MCU. But the Ben Kingsley-plot twist with The Mandarin is still one of the more hilarious surprises in the franchise.
