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.

‘Hawkeye’ Ends With a Muted Bang

I’m just going to say it bluntly; this finale wasn’t very good. It had some fun moments…basically every good scene had Yelena in it but there was just something unbelievably underwhelming about this episode.

The MCU has found a way to get so many things right but they’re still struggling big time with these finales. And the post-credit scene is not cool at all. You’ll know why when you see it.

All in all, that finale just made Hawkeye the worst MCU show of the year…unfortunately.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.

‘Hawkeye’ Delivers the Best Penultimate Episode So Far

I knew this show was going to be good but I still don’t think I was quite ready for how emotional this show was going to be. This latest episode was fantastic from start to finish, delivering emotional blow after blow until by the show’s conclusion I realized I needed to let the episode digest before I decided to write anything.

Hawkeye episode 5 recap: Marvel show takes a wildly exciting turn - CNET

I think the thing that has impressed me the most about Hawkeye is how connected to the MCU it feels. The other series felt like they were trying too hard to be individual entities in this massive franchise and yet Hawkeye is embracing the movies wholeheartedly. Every episode provides a reference to a past Avengers movie, the relationship between Clint and Natasha, the aftermath of Endgame, or Ronin’s violent past. And it’s fantastic!

Minor Spoilers Ahead!

‘Hawkeye’ Made Me Cry at 3am In the Morning!

Well, that was definitely the saddest episode so far and no, I’m not really okay.

The latest episode makes me remember how much I wish we had gotten more iconic duo time with Hawkeye/Black Widow. They were such great friends and now that she’s dead….

Yeah. It’s really sad.

So yeah, good episode. Not as viscerally exciting as last week’s but it had me invested. I’m not quite sure Marvel Studios is going to be able to wrap up this story with a nice little bow on top with just two more arrows but we’ll see.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

If Yelena Belova Shows Up In Tomorrow’s Episode of ‘Hawkeye’…

I may be in the minority here when I say Black Widow is my favorite MCU movie of the year so far but it’s the truth. The film gripped me, it made me cry, and it made me love Yelena Belova instantly. So when I learned we’d be getting Belova sooner rather than later in Hawkeye I got really excited. Now, Episode 4 drops tomorrow and I think it’s time for everyone’s new favorite assassin to make an appearance.

Of course, this is all speculation and we may not get a chance to see her until the finale but… if she does show up…

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

That Third Episode of ‘Hawkeye’ Was Awesome!

Last week I watched the first two episodes of Hawleye and I was less than enthused. However, the third episode had my attention from the get-go, and when it concluded I was very sad.

This episode really has it where it counts. From beginning to end, I was invested, I was laughing, I even teared up at one point, and now I’m very, very intrigued to see where this story goes. Plus, the introduction to Echo was very cool. I can’t wait to see more of her and her story which obviously is going to lead into a spinoff that was announced on Disney+ Day. Very, very cool!

All in all, Hawkeye has my full attention now and I’m waiting eagerly for next week’s episode.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.
