    The show that should have been cancelled instead of Agent Carter.

    The show they should have kept over Agents of Shield.

    Movie #7 - Iron Man 3

    First impression: ehhhhhh

    Fave scenes: Iron Man’s interaction with the boy, the scene where Iron Man’s house was blown up, and the end credits secret scene with Hulk, lol

    This movie was okay. Kind of a let down going from Avengers (universe villains) to this (Earth villain). The movie had some fun moments for sure but I just didn’t buy into the villain being so upset by getting ditched on the roof. Movie was entertaining though. Loved the War Machine/Iron patriot banter haha.

    Kingsley was freaking HILARIOUS omg

    I think I like the Iron Man movies ranked in the order they came out.

    Next movie - Thor: Dark World

    Very interesting. IMO this movie is far superior to part 2.

    Was it because 2 had a similar villain to 1? Curious to hear more of your opinion :)

    Awesome! Feel free to join in even tho you’re not a newbie lol

    I am renting them from the library, some have been blu ray and some dvd. I will use Netflix for the ones that are available there which seem to be the more recent films.

    Yeah, bad villain (that's my main problem with most of the Marvel universe, even in some of the good movies). And as you even mentioned, Tony was simply unlikable through a majority of the film. It was just a huge letdown after the first movie.

    Movie #8 - Thor: Dark World

    First impression - Liked it - Damn you, Loki!

    Fave scenes: Heimdall trying to protect Asgard, Everyone threatening to kill Loki, Loki shapeshifting into various folks including Captain America (lol), Loki death scene (I thought he had redeemed himself a smidge only to find out he’s still a weasel), Queen’s death was powerful, Kat Dennings calling the hammer “mew mew” (laughed out loud at that)

    It was nice to learn more about Asgard and it’s history and about the other realms.

    I did not realize Natalie Portman’s character was coming back so that was a surprise. Thor’s definitely got a thang for that mortal.

    Okay, now I have some questions. I knew Loki was going to be deceitful at some point but I don’t know when he was able to switch? And the king is dead, right? That’s the body they found? And if Thor was able to tell Loki was projecting while in custody, shouldn’t he have been able to tell he was projecting as his father? And when “Loki” died? I feel like I missed something

    I love to hate Loki. He’s definitely my fave villain and I hate him (but also love him, that little bitch).

    I don’t think I liked this one AS much as Thor 1 but I liked this one for different reasons than I liked 1.

    Secret end scene - what the heck are infinity stones? And why are they giving away the red stone they just fought to get? I’m guessing it has to do with the movie Infinity Wars so I am sure I will learn more soon.

    Next movie - Captain America: The Winter Soldier

    Movie #9 - Captain America: The Winter Soldier

    Initial impression: WTF?

    Fave scene: Black Widow kicking ass scenes, sadness when Captain went the museum just so he could see his life from before, Black Widow and Captain scenes about trust

    I was not prepared for the Hydra stuff to be front and center again. And I was kind of bummed that they had infiltrated Shield and that Shield is now over. I kind of felt a tad cheated by that. I feel like Shield should have caught that waaaaaay before it came to this. But what do I know? Lol

    I was also not prepared to see Bucky or doctor Lola from the last movie. And I was not prepared for Nick Fury’s death and I am glad he wasn’t really killed. Is anyone actually dead in these movies? Jeeeeez, every time!

    Curious what’s gonna happen with Bucky aka The Winter Soldier

    I am glad Captain got to see old Agent Carter.

    I think I liked the first Captain movie a bit more than this one. I didn’t NOT like it, but I just am just feeling kinda lost on the direction moving forward if there’s no Shield. Captain America kicked ass in this so I can see why a lot of folks liked this movie.

    Also, the secret scene, with the German doctor talking about the twins and miracles? I have no clue what that is about. I guess we’ll see!

    Next movie: Guardians of the Galaxy (super stoked to finally see this. I love Chris Pratt and I heard it’s a funny movie)

    Awesome write ups. Bc you’re doing this as a marathon I think you’ll be able to piece together a lot of these questions you’ve been asking that others might miss when some time elapses between viewings. Keep it up!
