Countdown to Infinity War: Final Thoughts

Well, I did it… I rewatched all the MCU movies in anticipation of Infinity War! And uh… I’m glad I’m done*, and that I don’t have to think** about another*** superhero movie for a while****.

Overall it’s been an enjoyable trip through the MCU. The movies hold up remarkably well both individually and as a continuing arc of storylines, and from Best (Iron Man? Winter Soldier? Black Panther?) to Worst (probably Hulk), they’re all still fun movies.

While I hate to pick a favorite, the movie I’ve enjoyed the most has to be Guardians of the Galaxy. It isn’t the best, but it’s the one I like the most, and the one I’m most likely to just randomly put on.

And because no wrap up would be complete without it, I’m going to rank them. Well, categorize them, since actually ranking them is a little too arbitrary. They are listed by release order within each category.

Best MCU
Iron Man
Captain America
Winter Soldier
Guardians of the Galaxy
Ant Man
Black Panther

Middling MCU
Iron Man 3
Age of Ultron
Civil War
Doctor Strange
Guardians vol. 2
Spider-Man: Homecoming
Thor 3 (this may move up in the rankings...)

Dust Collectors
Iron Man 2
Thor 2

I expect that Infinity War will likely fall into the Middling category... and with this, I'm off tomorrow to the movies for a noon showing! Wish I'd gotten an earlier ticket...

*Except for Infinity War itself….
**Not counting Deadpool 2 in June…
***Or Ant-Man and Wasp in July…
****But aside from those 3 upcoming movies in the next 3 months, I don’t have to think about comic book movies at all now that I’ve finished my rewatch!
