Ranking the ‘Spider-Man’ Movies I’ve Seen So Far

It’s Spider-Man Day and I thought it would be fun to rank the Spider-Man films I’ve seen today. This includes even Venom. Enjoy!

5. The Amazing Spider-Man 2

How Spider-Man Got His 'Amazing' New Costume - MTV

I remember going to see this in theaters seven years ago. I didn’t like it that much. Electro was terrible and the film is ultimately rather forgettable, other than the shocking fact that *SPOILER ALERT* dies at the end of the movie which I definitely did NOT see coming.

Could there have been a third movie? Yes, but then we wouldn’t have gotten Tom Holland’s Spider-Man trilogy so I’m happy with the way things turned out.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe Movies, Ranked by IMDb

25 movies, 25 rankings, which movie will be on top? Let’s see what the critics and the audience decide.

25. The Incredible Hulk: 6.7/10 stars

Even among IMDb voters this movie will always be the worst film in the MCU.

24: Black Widow: 6.8/10 stars

The fact that this movie is lower than Captain Marvel seems absurd but once people realized Taskmaster had been gender-swapped and that the film had a lot of feminist messages in it, the movie was bombarded by people determined to give the film a bad review.

Hence, its shockingly atrocious bad score despite being one of the surprise MCU hits.

23. Captain America: The First Avenger: 6.9/10 stars

I love this movie but apparently there aren’t a lot of people who perceive it with as much love as I do. And it’s understandable. When I first watched it I wasn’t a fan either but after the conclusion of the Infinity Saga this film feels so much more poignant and lovable.

I’m an unapologetic fan of this movie.

22. Thor: The Dark World: 6.9/10 stars

Thor: The Dark World is convoluted. On one side the film tries to stay in the same epic/romantic narrative sense as Thor but then it veers away from the seriousness and tries to be as comical as Thor: Ragnarok, producing a movie that is both fun and forgettable at the same time.

21. Captain Marvel: 6.9/10 stars

Captain Marvel is a cool character but her debut film is BORING…until it isn’t. The last twenty-thirty minutes are rewarding but unfortunately those last minutes aren’t enough to save this movie.

‘Shazam’ vs. ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’: Which movie wins?

Since the days of comics Marvel and DC Comics have warred over its material and many of the heroes tend to be very similar. Green Lantern and Captain Marvel are practically identical characters, there’s The Flash and Quicksilver, Batman is a rich and super smart vigilante and Iron Man is a rich and super smart superhero, oh the list could go on and on but you get the point.

Now, even the movies are very much alike. Batman vs. Superman is Captain America: Civil War, Suicide Squad is Guardians of the Galaxy, Justice League tried to be The Avengers, they even have the same director, and Shazam! is Spider-Man: Homecoming. That’s why I thought it perfect to compare these two films and determine which is better. Enjoy!

With every updated ranking post that I have ever written The Incredible Hulk will always be in the last place.

22. Thor: The Dark World

While Thor: The Dark World has become somewhat more interesting since its inclusion in Avengers: Endgame, this movie’s still pretty terrible.

My Top 20 Scenes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Part 2

Yesterday I shared the first five scenes in my top 20 favorite-scenes-in-the-MCU countdown. Now, it’s time for the next five. Let the countdown commence.

15. Captain America’s Startling Reawakening

Steve Rogers a.k.a Captain America was thought to be dead but instead, he was frozen in time and thawed out in the 21st century. Say what you will about Captain America: The First Avenger. This is one of my favorite movie endings for a superhero movie ever. It’s such a fun way to introduce Captain America to our futuristic world and, for a bonus, it features Nick Fury too. Love it!

14. “What the f–?!”

Speaking about superhero movie endings, this is also one of my favorite. Part of Spider-Man’s story and the daily challenge is to keep his aunt, friends, and the world from knowing who he, Peter Parker, really is. Marvel Studios has thrown that scenario out of the window and it’s fitting, considering that Tony Stark broke that secret-hero narrative in Iron Man. This is a world where the heroes are known and that makes Spider-Man’s story a little more complex than before.

13. Who Can Lift Mjolnir?

From the first time I watched this scene to the last time I watched this scene, it has always managed to make me laugh.

12. Gamora’s Death

There isn’t much tragedy in the MCU. Avengers: Infinity War is full of it. This scene has always been haunting and even though Gamora was essentially revived in Endgame, it still hurts.

11. “And I am Iron Man.”

Avengers: Endgame isn’t the best superhero movie that I’ve ever seen but it has moments that are downright unforgettable, this being one of them. I knew Iron Man was going to die but at least his death arrived via the most epic sacrifice ever conceived in a superhero film. I love this scene and yeah, I cry like a baby every time too.

Oh, snap, tomorrow arrives the next five scenes for this countdown.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day.

A Movie Ranking: Michael Keaton

Michael Keaton has become one of my favorite actors over the years and after recently seeing him in Beetlejuice I love his breadth of work even more now. So, for this week’s A Movie Ranking I wanted to highlight him. Enjoy!

8. Robocop

RoboCop (2014)

I don’t even remember Michael Keaton is in this movie but I do remember enjoying the film. My family and I went to see it in IMAX and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Of course, it’s not the best film ever made but it is decent. Continue reading A Movie Ranking: Michael Keaton
