The Ten Best Scenes in Marvel

Over nine glorious years Marvel Studios have accumulated seventeen films and counting and the amazing thing is most of them are pretty good. Last week I wrote a post about my five favorite scenes in Star Wars and after an Avengers: Infinity War teaser debuted last Wednesday it got me thinking, “What are my favorite scenes out of all of the Marvel films so far”? Well, I’m about to share with you the ten scenes that have really made me love Marvel’s fantastic superhero flicks. Enjoy!

10. When Thor, Bruce Banner, and Valkyrie Escape Sakaar

Thor: Ragnarok was one of the best Marvel films made so far and my favorite part of the film was when Thor and co. had to escape Sakaar. First, it was fabulous seeing Valkyrie in action. She could fly a ship pretty well but when she decided to take on their attackers with her bare hands the action scene became just that much better. And then when Thor joined her they became the ultimate Asgardian duo. It plastered a smile on my face and became one of my favorite scenes in Marvel.

Where Does Spider-Man: Homecoming Rank in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Yesterday I wrote a review about Spider-Man: Homecoming and I absolutely loved the film but how does it stack up against the other Marvel films that have come before it? Well, this is what I’m going to find out and I hope you enjoy.

1. Captain America: The Winter Soldier

I loved Spider-Man: Homecoming, it was a pretty flawless movie. There’s something about The Winter Soldier, however, that really makes me happy. I watched this film four times in the movie theaters and now, three years after it came out, it still reigns supreme in terms of what Marvel can do. The storyline is simple yet complex, Robert Redford’s portrayal of Secretary Pierce was spot on, Bucky’s arc throughout the movie was one of the better plotlines in Marvel so far, and this was the first movie that Captain America really shined in.

Another reason why the movie was so good is its lack of heroes with super incredible abilities. Captain America, while he retains superhuman strength, speed, etc, he isn’t as powerful as someone like, say, Thor, or even Spider-Man for that matter. And then Black Widow is only a Shield agent, she’s not a superwoman, and that gives the movie a grit that most of the Marvel films don’t have. And Falcon is also a rather regular human besides the awesome exoskeleton. That’s why I love this movie. I’m waiting for the day to come for a Marvel film to finally dethrone this one but it still hasn’t happened yet.

2. Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man: Homecoming is undoubtedly the second best Marvel movie ever made. It’s funny, it’s original, and it’s simply a great film. The plot twists were shocking, the characters were fun and engaging, the storyline was impeccable, and it all led to Spider-Man officially becoming an Avenger, which is so exciting.

There are other great Marvel films like Doctor Strange, Captain America: Civil War, the first Guardians of the Galaxy, but this movie was so cute and perfect that there was no way I wasn’t going to rank this as the second best Marvel movie made so far.

So, this is where I rank Spider-Man: Homecoming in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I thank you for reading and I hope you have an absolutely beautiful day.

My Review of Spider-Man: Homecoming

I’ve just recently watched Spider-Man: Homecoming and this is what I have to say about it. This movie. Was. Amazing!!! Marvel really outdid themselves with this Spider-Man film. I had seen nearly every trailer, I had seen all of the tv spots and advertisements, but I never imagined that this movie would be as good as it was.

Spider-Man is a fan favorite, and for good reason. He’s a nerdy kid who obtained outstanding abilities from a radioactive spider and ended up becoming an incredible superhero who saves his hometown from all sorts of diabolical villains. Spider-Man is so famous that even way before I knew anything about the difference between Marvel and DC Comics I knew who Spider-Man was.

There used to be this DVD I would watch, it was a cartoon called The Amazing Spider-Man, and I would watch it all of the time. There was Dr. Octopus, my favorite Spider-Man villain, the Green Goblin, and a whole bunch of other sinister villains. I loved it. I didn’t, at that time, know any other superheroes except for Superman and Batman. And even though I wanted to watch the actual Spider-Man movies I never could because there was just way too much suck facing in those films.

And then Sony just recently made two new Spider-Man films starring Andrew Garfield as the wall-climbing superhero and they weren’t that great. I only saw the second one with Jamie Foxx as the villain and while I did like Spider-Man the rest of the movie was terrible.

Then in 2016 Marvel partnered with Sony and a new Spider-Man was born.

It’s Only Four Months Until The Last Jedi!

As you know according to my site I am a HUGE! Star Wars fan…and that is why I’m making this post. This week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly is providing never before seen images from The Last Jedi and I am beyond excited. When Entertainment Weekly starts talking about Star Wars I know it’s almost time for the movie to come out, and it is!

The preseason for the NFL has begun! That means before I know it it’ll be Haloween, and after Haloween comes Thanksgiving, and after Thanksgiving, The Last Jedi will be the next big event. I just can’t believe it. It feels like yesterday when I saw the teaser for the first time during the Star Wars Celebration in April. I remember sitting at home, enthralled in the new settings and the epic clips and the ominous words of Luke Skywalker. And before I know it I’ll be walking out of a movie theater having just seen The Last Jedi and hopefully (most likely) I’ll have the biggest smile on my face.

One observation I’ve made during these months is LucasFilms’ strategy for advertising. They know everyone, including me, wants to see teasers and get juicy scoops on the story of this next film, and they’re obliging us, slightly. They’re releasing images and interviews from the cast but it’s not revealing anything about the movie. There’s only so much you can glean from a still photo, no matter how epic, and that is very smart.

Why I’m Excited about Spider-Man: Homecoming

It’s been over a year since Spider-Man made his surprise debut in Captain America: Civil War. Tom Holland’s version of the infamous superhero had me very excited to see him again. I’m not even a fan of Spider-Man and I knew this was clearly the best version of the swinging hero. And then when I found out he was going to have his own movie this year I was even more excited. He was one of the best elements of Civil War so I had no doubt his movie would be great.

Now it’s coming out this week and early reviews are already saying it’s going to be a blast. Of course, I make my own judgment on movies but hearing that it is good as I thought it would be is reassuring. And you can’t beat a movie with Iron Man in it. Iron Man is one of my favorite superheroes and Tony Stark always brings the humor. I’m sure the scenes with him will be great and the action will be even greater. I’m also curious to see what the post-credit scenes will be. I’m hoping there will be something about either Avengers: Infinity War or possibly the future Spider-Man film.

Wonder Woman was easily the best DCEU movie so far. I enjoyed it thoroughly and I can’t wait to see it again at home. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was unfortunately not that great and was so unappealing that I didn’t even want to go see it. Spider-Man is almost here and I can’t wait to see where it ends up in the list of my favorite Marvel films. I’m guessing that it’ll be in the realm of either Guardians of the Galaxy or Doctor Strange. If it is I’m going to emerge from that movie theater very, very happy.

I’m excited to eventually write a review about it. Until then I hope you have a wonderful day and thank you for reading this post.

Spider Man Swings Into Action With A New Trailer

Three days ago Warner Bros. released a new trailer for their highly anticipated Justice League movie and it was pretty entertaining. DC Comics is known for their epic superheroes and it looks like Warner Bros. is going to make sure that continues to be the reputation of characters such as Batman or Wonder Woman. Marvel is the rival in this huge superhero genre and so of course they have released a new trailer for one of their most beloved characters debut film, Spider Man. That’ll definitely divert some attention from the incredible looking film DC Comics will be presenting later on this year. Here is the new trailer for Spider Man: Homecoming.

My Summary of this New Trailer:

First off, this trailer was way better than the first one. There was much more action which looks spectacular, there’s more Tony Stark which is always exciting, there’s more humor, and there’s more of the villainous Vulture. So on that note let me talk about these four elements of the trailer.

The Action

Marvel’s movies are known for some of their incredible action sequences. Take Captain America: Civil War for example. Part of the reason why I came away from that movie so pleased was the extraordinary airport battle between the Avengers. There were so many fascinating elements to that one sequence in the film that it alone made Civil War one of the most enjoyable blockbusters I’ve ever watched. I’m happy to say it looks like this Spider Man film will definitely deliver on the action scenes.

First of all those little spider drones Spider Man now has are so cool. I can’t wait to see what they can do. Secondly the main fight between Spider Man and The Vulture is going to be something to witness. That part where it showed the two fighting on a crashing plane looks exciting and there’s no doubt it’s going to be very loud in IMAX. Third, did you notice that in the second half of the trailer it shows Peter Parker fighting Vulture without his special Spider Man suit Tony Stark made him? It looks like after whatever happens with that boat incident Iron Man is going to have to take away his heroic privileges because of those Accords all superheroes are supposed to abide by. That means Peter Parker is going to have a lot more trouble facing Vulture when he’s obviously only able to wear his old suit.

I’m glad to see that this trailer didn’t show all of the plot points of this movie. All I know is a lot of trouble is about to hit New York City.

There’s More Iron Man!

I feel bad saying this because this is a movie that’s supposed to be all about the new Spider Man but my favorite part of this trailer was when it showed Iron man helping to push that boat back together. It was so cool it literally gave me chills. Yes I love Tom Holland’s version of Spider Man. He looks like what you’d imagine Peter Parker looking like, he’s funny, and he’s simply the perfect Spider Man but Iron Man is an amazing character. First of all I’ve been watching Iron Man since 2010 and throughout all of those years he’s always stolen the show. It’s just until recently when there have been stellar new heroes such as Black Panther or Doctor Strange that he’s lessened in the ranks of incredible Marvel characters. When I saw the new clips of Iron Man in this trailer I momentarily forgot about Spider Man. That’s a little worrying. I hope Tony Stark will be more of a secondary character that only shows up here and there because he will definitely slightly steal the spotlight from this new hero that I can’t wait to see a little further. And I’m really hoping that Spider Man will be the one to defeat Vulture because if he’s aided by Iron Man it’ll diminish his ability to be an independent superhero who can save the world just as easily as Captain America.

The Humor In This Spider Man Trailer Is Perfect

I love a trailer that can make me laugh, for the right reasons. I loved the humorous moments such as when it showed Spider Man swinging through a neighborhood and he splashed a whole bunch of people at a pool party. That was a perfect Spider Man move. And secondly I thought it was very amusing seeing his friend try on his mask. Those little clips remind us that this version of Peter Parker is just a teenager with some pretty awesome abilities. I think it’s going to be great having this new dynamic to the line of heroes in these films because everyone else, besides Scarlet Witch, is over the age of 28. That makes Peter extra special once he eventually joins the Avengers in their fight against baddies throughout the galaxy.

The Angry Vulture

Judging from this trailer Vulture is going to become part of that list of lackluster villains. Yes his suit is gorgeously frightening but besides that he seems to be the cliché villain with that repetitive speech most villains have. Everything was taken from me and so I’m going to take everything from you. What this villain’s true motive will be interesting to see, like is he an angry Hydra officer that has been plotting his revenge or is he just some crazed individual who wants to see superheroes perish by his hand? There’s also the question if he’s working alone or is there some other behind the scenes villain that they’re keeping for a surprise?

My Overall Opinion of this Trailer

I think it’s going to be another successful entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel has the formula and I’m thankful to see they’re not letting up on delivering enjoyable films to all us movie lovers. The main thing that excites me about this new movie is what the surprise of the movie will be because there’s always a surprise. Age of Ultron’s surprise was the debut of Vision. Ant-Man’s was having Falcon in the film. And Civil War’s surprise was Captain America dropping his shield at the end. That jaw dropping moment still has me wondering if he’ll reprise his role as Captain America or if he’ll have a different identity. I’m also excited to see the post-credit scenes because those are always fun to watch. After July 7 all of my questions will be answered.

Well thank you for reading for my post. It’s been fun writing about this new trailer and I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Have a beautiful day.
