A Hench-Sized Ranking of the Marvel Cinematic Universe

With the whole world enjoying Avengers: Age of Ultron, I saw a lot of lists on the Internet ranking the best and worst of the Marvel movies. I will gladly go on record claiming that there isn’t a bad movie in the bunch. They’ve all been good to great so far, and I fully expect that trend to continue later this summer with Ant-Man.

Being a blogger of the people, and a self-proclaimed Marvel fan, I’ve decided to rank all of the Marvel movies from my most to least favorite. I love them all and, were I a healthier man, I would gladly have attended one of those massive, multi-hour marathons that were playing in major cities. But alas, I live in a dinky little city that doesn’t get that kind of awesome attention. I need to move somewhere cool…

Also, this seems like a great time to share the first official synopsis of Captain America: Civil War. It seems Cap’s new team of Avengers are going to fill the New Warriors’ role from the original comic, and the movie will feature a metric ton of characters, including War Machine, Vision, Ant-Man and General Ross from The Incredible Hulk! They’re really getting William Hurt to return! That’s amazing connectivity!

So join me after the jump for my personal ranking of all the Marvel movies! And feel free to share your own in the comments below!

20 Minutes is a Little Excessive

Our friends at Cinema Sins have tackled Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and apparently they went all out on what was a legitimately good film. You guys are monsters!

But I know we all have 20 minutes to spare, so I hope you enjoyed their video as much as I did! As my brother once said, these are the MST3K for the short attention span Internet generation!

The Winter Soldier Really Is a Good Movie, Honestly

Can’t fault the Screen Junkies for being totally honest. They’re the ones who made the rules.

I’ve seen Captain America: The Winter Soldier a second time now, and it still holds up as a great action film. It’s one of those movies I might even consider buying the DVD for, like some kind of archaic ritual.

How Captain America: The Winter Soldier Should Have Ended

That bloopers video I posted yesterday got taken down from Youtube, which stinks. But the guys at How It Should Have Ended have given us this video instead!

When they stick to the point of the video, they do a splendid job (that Tony Stark scene at the end was awesome (at least if you remember the joke it’s referring to, which I do)). But man, they rely way way WAY too much on those Superman/Batman diner scenes. Stick to the actual movies you’re parodying. I’m kind of afraid of what they’re eventually going to do for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. I shutter to think.

Blooper Reel? Sure, Why Not?

Slow news day today, so how about a quickie blooper reel from the upcoming DVD release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier?

Darn it! The video got taken down off Youtube, but you can watch it by clicking here

I know I was entertained. And can I say how great it is that Marvel had another successful year at the movies? Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy have been two of their absolute best films. Here’s hoping 2015 is great for them as well!
