I Finished My Marvel Marathon!

A little over two months ago I began my marathon heading to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and that meant I had a LOT to watch.

It began with the animated X-Men series which I watched all the way until about halfway through Season 3. That was an interesting ride with a lot of storylines that were quite fascinating, specifically the Phoenix storylines with Jean Grey. That was intense.

Then I got into the X-Men movies while tackling the MCU films I needed to watch too. That was a lot to finish but it was a super fun ride.

It was my first time watching all of the X-Men movies in a marathon fashion so it definitely provided quite the perspective. Such as the rebooted X-Men movies starting with First Class are way better than the first three X-Men films. Michael Fassbender’s Magneto is the undoubted MVP of those films, from his mesmerizing swagger to his constantly tragic storyline, Magneto is my favorite X-Men character and I don’t think that’s ever going to change.

X-Men: Days of Future Past and First Class were really fun but surprisingly X-Men: Apocalypse, despite its flaws, had me quite invested this time around. Magneto’s story is so heartbreaking in that movie.

It was, however, the final four installments in my marathon that were an utter blast to watch.

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

I’ve now seen Spider-Man: No Way Home at home and that means it’s time to give it an official ranking.  Enjoy!

32. The Incredible Hulk


You know what’s up.

31. Thor


I remember when I watched this movie for the first time in 2011. I didn’t like it then and I don’t like it now.

30. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2


The best thing about this movie is the cinematography. Unfortunately, not even the stunning visuals could save this one for me. I’m hoping Vol 3. is better.

‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ At Home

So…I’ve seen Spider-Man: No Way Home for the second time and I have…mixed feelings.

Spider-Man: No Way Home is a solid movie with a lot of really great moments…if you’re a diehard Spider-Man fan…which I’m not. And that’s where the heart of the problem lies for this movie compared to Homecoming and Far from Home.

Those movies, of course, thematically, felt more fun and funnier. This movie is stuffed to the brim with fan service that paid off with the first viewing in a packed theater full of enthusiastic Spider-Man fans but at home…at times, some of the scenes fell flat. Like Tobey’s Peter and Andrew’s Peter meeting for the first time and having a Spidey face-off. That part was kind of meh. Or the apartment fight which is a good scene but not nearly as impactful as I remembered.

And yet, despite not feeling as much of an attachment as I felt last time to the story I didn’t refrain from crying quite a bit through the second half of this movie. This movie is very depressing. I’m talking go-to-bed-extremely-sad-depressing.

I’m Very Excited about Seeing ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Again

Tomorrow (or hopefully at midnight) Spider-Man: No Way Home is going to be available to watch digitally and that means I’ll finally be able to see this earth-shattering moment of a film again for only the second time.

The last time I saw this movie I was in a theater packed with enthusiastic fans screaming and clapping at every other scene. Now I get to sit back, watch this movie at home, and soak in this story with a critical eye I didn’t have last time. I hope it’s as enjoyable as I remember. We’ll see. I’ll be sharing my review tomorrow.

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

Is ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ a Secret Avengers Movie?

I had an epiphany the other day. I was thinking about, well, Marvel and something dawned on me.

The last Marvel movie to have a trailer as a post-credit scene for another MCU film was The Avengers at the end of Captain America: The First Avenger. The Avengers, of course, was the studio’s first ensemble film which managed to bring together a group of remarkable people to see if they could face the battles most never could. The Earth’s Mightiest Heroes lived up to the hype, stopping Loki and his invasion on Earth in a film that not only changed the game for the superhero genre but proved that Marvel Studios was, in fact, not a fluke.

So, considering that was the last MCU film to have a trailer as a post-credits scene is Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness secretly the latest Avengers movie? It makes sense if that were so.

Last year each film was very much a standalone story; from the series to the movies, the stories never really required a multitude of superheroes from different properties to save the day. Even Doctor Strange played a menial role in Spider-Man: No Way Home, allowing the focus to truly shine on Spider-Man and his story alone.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is the first movie that is actually going to feature a multitude of heroes, Wong, America Chavez, and of course Wanda a.k.a the Scarlet Witch. And that’s not the only heroes we will see in this movie.

There are rumors that we will be seeing a multiversal Avengers team in this film comprised of a group of heroes that I will not disclose in this post. I will say this though, the rumored members of this team is going to have people cheering again for sure.

And with so many cameos destined for this movie this truly does feel like a major event coming our way this May and I am ready for the showdown. What’s going to happen, how will it affect the MCU moving forward, and is this in fact, technically, the next Avengers movie? I think it is.

Here’s the trailer if you need a quick reminder of the awesomeness that awaits us.

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

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.
