I’m bored, so I decided to rank the Marvel movies. Feel free to tell me just how correct I am at every level.
So here’s the thing I decided upon writing all of this. Basically anything at 12 or above could move up or down 4-5 spots and I couldn’t really argue that much. Every one of those movies were absolutely amazing for their own reasons. I think if I did this list in a month it would come out completely different. With one exception. Thor: Ragnarok was by far the best movie in the collection for me. The comedy, the artistry, the cinematography, the music. What Taika Waititi did was nothing short of amazing. Also, I still say that Age of Ultron was a lot better than people give it credit for and if you go back and rewatch it now, you might just agree.

Given your caveat of the fluidity of the rankings it’s difficult to argue. I personally found Iron Man 3 and Ant-Man more entertaining than ranked.
But the reason I visited the site today is to wonder if anyone noticed that 2002 ALCY pitcher Barry Zito just lost on The Masked Singer?
I did. My wife loves the show, so I watch with her. She’s a casual baseball fan, and did not know who Barry Zito is.
As for the rankings above…
Top echelon: Captain America, Ant Man, Ant Man and the Wasp, Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor: Ragnarok, Iron Man, Iron Man 3, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Black Panther (any particular order depending on mood)
Then all the rest essentially in a tie with a grade of “I’ll watch them with my son, but would not watch them on my own.”
but did she think Barry Zito was cute? Because he used to be a stone fox back in the day. (Did he play his guitar? He’s so talented.)
I LOVED Ant-Man, but that might be because of my decades long appreciation for the ageless Paul Rudd. I also like the underdog. Which probably explains my dating life LMAO.
I did not enjoy Iron Man 3, but then again, I am a Cap girl all day every day. Captain America forever.
I was a big early Marvel fan, I mean way back when Steve Ditko was still drawing Spider Man and Jack Kirby was drawing The Fantastic Four. Stan Lee (who back then went by his real name, Stanley Lieber, when hanging out with his neighbors) and his lovely British wife Joan, lived just down the street and he used to be happy to sign copies of the latest issues of the comics. He and Joan took turns walking their white poodle and I’d be playing stickball with my brother on our driveway when they’d go by, so we’d hold orf to avoid beaning them with a line drive. My favorite of all the Marvel mags was Doctor Strange, because it was so trippy. Even as an adolescent, it was preparing me for my first acid.
But then I grew up.

Yeah, FF, Doctor Strange, Daredevil (where is it on this list exactly? Can’t seem to locate it) , Silver Surfer, Nick Fury.
Side note: Watched the Doctor Strange premiere in our local movie house and had trouble finding the way out– and no, I wasn’t trippin balls
The Daredevil show, while Marvel, isn’t a movie proper. That’s probably why it’s not on the list.
Because if we COULD put it on the list, it would definitely take the place of Thor 2 or Iron Man 3 at the very least.

I was thinking the much maligned film, actually, sorry for the confusion. But yeah, the first few eps of the Netflix show were completely awesome, the hallway fight scene still reverberates in my head.

Brett voice “right”
Cool story. Wonder if anyone else here has had a famous person in their neighborhood at any point?
Mike Hampton went to my high school…a “few” years after me.
Not exactly same neighborhood, but same small town in Florida as Ted Williams.
About a 1 hour drive further north.
Never had a famed neighbor, but I was a junior in HS when “local band” Van Halen played at my school because someone knew someone close the brothers. This was just a few months before the first album erupted (see what I did there?) over the airwaves.
But connecting celebrity with baseball, my friend and I were at a Dodgers game in ’79. We would typically buy cheap tickets and then move downhill into a better location. If somebody challenged us we’d pretend we had misread our row (Oh this is Row A, not Row H! Sorry!) This particular game, who challenged us for taking their seats? Ralph Malph and Postsie!
I once went to a seminar and the speaker was a writer named David Gerrold, who wrote the Star Trek TOS episode, “The Trouble With Tribbles”. He seemed a nice fellow, and only about thirteen people showed up so we all got to ask questions.
While dining in 2002 I turned my head when I thought I heard the voice of the President Of The United States. Yes, I was seated seven feet away from the future Allstate guy! I thanked him for his work on “24”.

I got word this afternoon that my daughter tested positive for the virus. She’s a thirty nine year old mother of two and is at home feeling terrible. She’ll probably be okay but it hit me today that if this thing takes her I’ll probably, literally, never see her again.
Anybody else here got a family member or other loved one with the virus.
My cousin Timothy and his husband Chris, in London. both got it a couple of months ago. They’re both in their early 40s and in good health but they had a lousy time, though they’re OK now. Thank the National Health system in Britain (fuck you, Reslugnican scum).
About six weeks ago we lost an elderly neighbor to the virus. She was in her mid-80s but feisty; it took her inside of a week.
So yeah, it’s gotten reasonably close to us, but we’ve been very careful.
We are lucky here, living in sort of a backwater, as we have only had 120 cases total, with no deaths, in the whole province (population 750,000). There are currently only 2 active cases – both travel-related – and no new ones in 11 days. (Which is remarkable, as New Brunswick has one of the highest percentages of seniors in the country.)
That said, the whole family is staying clear of my dad, who is 89, and lives by himself. He has care workers come in every day to clean and get his meals, so at least he’s not alone. And he’s not technology averse, so we were able to have a Skype birthday party for him back in March. I am able to work from home and my wife is retired, so there is no hardship there. I think it’s hardest on my sister, who lives 5 miles from Dad and can’t even get to him — she is in Maine and the border will be closed for another month at least.
A coworker of mine has been in ICU for 37 weeks now. He experienced kidney failure. He may not ever be able to work again, if he survives (it’s still touch and go). So not a family member or even a loved one, but someone I still work with day after day and it’s hit me pretty hard, honestly.
No, number one is Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and it’s not even close.
BUCKY BARNES FOREVER
So I came back after a few days to check the list and I’m actually pretty satisfied with it. I rewatched Age of Ultron, and I gotta say now that I’ve seen Endgame the movie hits on such a deeper level than it did before. Now that I know what I know, the motivations of Ultron completely change in my mind. Highly recommend any big Marvel fan to rewatch it and tell me the movie isn’t a LOT better than you recall.
