Reviewing the MCU

Recently, I had the idea that I wanted to review the movies within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This would give me an excuse to rewatch them, probably cry a lot, and share how I really feel about each movie. However, I want to preface these reviews with some key info to keep in mind: 

  • I will be skipping the Hulk movie(s)! It’s not the same actor and quite honestly doesn’t really tie into things as we get properly introduced to the character in The Avengers.
  • I am not a comic buff! While I do have baseline knowledge of the comics, I do not know everything! So if I mention something not aligning with the comics, that is only because it is a HUGE misstep, that I’m aware of, and needs addressing.
  • All of these reviews are my personal opinion! I have a particular fondness for Marvel and often overlook things that are faulty. While I may hone in during the reviews, there will still be an obvious fondness in my writing (with the exception of Age of Ultron). 
  • I will do my best to point out Easter eggs within the films! I find it exciting to catch tiny details within films and I know you might as well!
  • I. Love. Tony. Stark. I have massive respect for him and anyone who disagrees can get out. Don’t bother reading my review because I will only be praising him as I have fully analyzed every decision he has ever made within the films. 
  • I will take a week off between each phase so I don’t overwhelm myself with writing review after review. I may post something else during these breaks or I may just fully take a week off! I’ll keep you updated on Twitter.
  • I will be doing the reviews by release date, not chronological order. Here is the list of Marvel movies by release date:
