I’m Doing Another Marvel Marathon

Well, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is going to be in theaters a little less than two weeks from now and that means it’s time to do another Marvel marathon. That means I’ve got to get through twenty four movies in that time. It’s a bit daunting (especially that I’ve seen some of the Marvel films recently) but this is a personal task that’s always fun to perform before a new Marvel movie.

After starting the marathon on Wednesday I’ve just gotten through the franchise’s first phase and it was quite an interesting journey.

Iron Man

I don’t watch the first Iron Man film often so watching this movie was kind of fantastic. Yes, Terence Howard is still a terrible War Machine but that’s really the only con of the movie. The film is a perfect origin story for the character, the relationship between Tony and Pepper is super cute, and the nods to his journey’s end in Endgame definitely made me a bit wistful.

It was even exciting to see how much the Ten Rings organization factored into the film, especially before Shang-Chi.

All in all, I rekindled my appreciation for this film and I will definitely be raising it in my next Marvel movie ranking.

My Ten Favorite Loki Moments

Loki is honestly one of the greatest Marvel characters ever brought to the big screen, even when he was a sneaky villain who constantly did infuriating things he was so likable. After recently watching a Youtube video ranking Loki’s best moments I decided I might as well make my own list. So here it is. My ten favorite Loki moments.

10. “Get help.”

Thor: Ragnarok's "get help" scene was thought up by star Chris Hemsworth

While the movies established Loki and Thor as brothers they were portrayed as feuding brothers for most of their time together in the MCU but Thor: Ragnarok did give us a glimpse into their lives as children. The “Get help” is not only funny but so cute. I wish we could’ve had more time with them doing brotherly things but maybe we still can.

A ‘Loki’ Test

One thing I’ve always found so fascinating about Marvel Studios is their continuity skills. If you look at the sequel trilogy, the characters in The Force Awakens act completely differently in The Last Jedi (Hux and Poe being the prime examples for this fact.) And yet massive ensemble films like Infinity War manage to take every hero from their respective franchises and perfectly incorporate them, unique personalities and all, into the movie.

As I’ve watched Loki for the past three weeks I have thoroughly enjoyed the film but one thing I kept wondering to myself, did the show actually treat Loki like his 2012 self? And I have come to the conclusion that no, they didn’t. And that’s actually a good thing.

The Top Ten Most Memorable Moments in the MCU

Why is the MCU so beloved? Because we have been given 23 movies and two amazing series over thirteen years…and the ride isn’t ending anytime soon. I’ve been enthralled in this world since I was eleven-years-old, gazing wide-eyed at the screen as my parents would show me some scenes from Iron Man. At the time, he was my favorite superhero.

Now, all these years later, Doctor Strange is my favorite Marvel superhero and the MCU pretty much dominates my every day.

This franchise is wonderful for so many reasons but it also has some of the most memorable moments in recent blockbuster history. So today, I wanted to share what I think are the top ten most memorable moments in the MCU (and this includes even the Disney+ series.) Enjoy!

10. Wanda’s Iconic Credits Roll

WandaVision: Who is Pulling the Strings in Westview Aside from Wanda?

WandaVision was filled with a bunch of interesting and memorable moments but the moment that stuck out to me in the entire series was when Wanda, during a tense moment with her husband Vision, began to roll the credits of her show on him as if to say goodnight.

It is so diva and I have loved it ever since I first saw it.

The Rest of the ‘Captain America’ Marathon

Avengers: Infinity War, April 27, 2018

Oh my goodness everybody, Avengers: Infinity War is no joke! I’ve watched all of the Marvel movies and this is undoubtedly not only the best one but truly the entire culmination of the last eighteen movies. I sat in that movie theater waiting in silent anguish for the movie to start after all of the many trailers and once it did it latched on and didn’t let go literally from beginning to end. The audience was incredible. There were many laugh-out-loud (and silently funny) moments that had the audience in stitches. There were some fantastic character moments that just had the audience cheering with excitement. And then there were some legitimately heartbreaking moments that caused quite a bit of sniffling in the theater. When I walked out of that movie after its two hour and thirty-two minute long run I was stunned. I felt like a young woman who had just seen the most amazing Marvel superhero movie that she had ever seen and couldn’t believe how shocking the film’s ending was…because that’s exactly what I was. My feet were lead, my eyebrows were furrowed in stunned confusion, and my mind was racing in an utter “WHAT JUST HAPPENED?!”
