InMyOpinion: MCU Movies From Worst to Best (#7 – 1)

Don’t forget to check out #13-8 on my list!

7. Avengers: Age of Ultron

This movie is a bit of a mess.  The editing is a bit crazy because it feels like the original cut of this movie was 5-hours-long.  There is very obviously stuff that’s missing (like Thor’s entire plot thread).  But…I still really enjoy this movie.  I like Natasha/Bruce (even if it does come out of nowhere), I like Hawkeye’s farm, I like Wanda and Vision (and Wanda/Vision), and I LOVE Ultron.  His quips are hilariously delivered by James Spader.  The CGI in the opening fight is a bit suspect, and the destruction towards the end is a bit overwhelming, but this movie is still a lot of fun to watch.  I wasn’t disappointed at all.

InMyOpinion: MCU Movies From Worst to Best (#13 – 8)

Like most of the world, I am a big fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).  I’ll admit that while I have always been a geek/fangirl, Superheroes and comic books weren’t always my thing.  Sure, I watched the Batman and Superman animated series, and I absolutely LOVED the cartoon X-men:Evolution.  I also really enjoyed the original X-men movies (well, the first 2 at least) and Sam Raimi’s Spiderman movies (once again, only the first 2).But I wasn’t obsessed.  I wasn’t reading fanfiction.  I didn’t feel compelled to read comic books.

That changed in 2008. Many of my friends were excited by Iron Man, so I pretended to be as well, even though I had absolutely NO idea who or what Iron Man was.  The movie came out, and everyone seemed to love it, even my parents.  So, I dragged myself out to the movie theaters to see what everyone was raving about.

In the end, I saw Iron Man in the theaters 7 and a half times (it’s a long story).  I was hooked.  I listened to the soundtrack in my car, read fanfiction, and could quote the movie almost word-for-word.

Since then, I have seen every MCU movie in the theaters, almost all on opening weekend and most more than once (though Iron Man still holds my MCU record).  Though (almost) everyone seems to enjoy the MCU movie, people seemed to have wildly different opinions on which are the best, which are ‘meh’, and which are bad.

So…Here’s my list of MCU movies ranked from worst to best!
