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!

Everything Wrong With Iron Man 3

The good people at Cinema Sins are at it again with Iron Man 3! And this time, they’re using viewer suggestions for some reason…

These are always entertaining. My brother once pointed out to me that these are basically the 2013 equivalent of Mystery Science Theater 3000 or Rifftrax, only much shorter and a bit punchier. Perhaps that’s where our attention spans are these days.

Make Fun of Iron Man Day

So for some reason, the universe really decided to stick it to Iron Man yesterday, with two completely independent comical films on Youtube. And me being the schmuck that I am, I’m sharing both at the same time!

First up is a pretty hilarious spoof of what it would be like if Mark Wahlberg replaced Robert Downey Jr. This is a spot-on Wahlberg impression by Dave Ebert.

That was made by the fine people at Official Comedy, and it is officially awesome!

Next up is the Honest Trailers take on Iron Man 3. As you know, I enjoyed Iron Man 3 a great deal, but the Screen Junkies definitely have a lot of fun picking it apart. I was fine with the whole Mandarin reveal until watching their video. Now I am kind of upset about the whole thing…

Iron Man took a beating yesterday, but I’m sure he’ll keep on ticking. Onward to Thor in November!

Iron Man 3 Gag Reel on This Slow, Slow Tuesday

In bigger news, I got my first smartphone today. I know what you’re thinking: how can I consider myself a geek if I’ve never owned a smartphone before. It’s simple; I’m not a tech geek. I’m a comic book geek. And I’ve always been behind the curve on tech. I was several years late to getting my first cell phone, and even then I had to get it from a family member for Christmas. I’ve been using pre-paid burner phones for a decade now, but have finally decided to take the plunge and get a smart phone – a Samsung Galaxy S3, in fact. We’ll see how it goes.

Anybody know any good games or apps I should get?

How Iron Man 3 Should Have Ended

They’re at it again! And this one is legitimately funny.

The How It Should Have Ended people are getting better and better. They’re finally back to showing us a legitimate alternate ending, which one would think was the whole point. These are always good for a chuckle.
