An incredible sequel, an impressive new first chapter, and one hell of a visual smorgasbord!
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D proved that the MCU could be bigger than film and continues to reinvent itself season after season whilst keeping its core as solid as ever. It had a rocky start, but once it hit pace it has continued to go from strength-to-strength.
Marvel's heist movie has some tonal flip-flops but lands on all six feet to make a very unlikely hero a comedic and heartfelt success, proving that size really doesn't matter.
It's no small feat to weave together this many characters and somehow make them all feel equally relevant, interesting, and enjoyable to watch. Funny, action-packed, and just so much fun; the comic-book team up to beat when it was released and now just brilliantly packed with teases of everything that has come since.
A decent outing for Marvel Anime, with some nice takes on classic characters, though ultimately nothing too special.
A minor blip that keeps getting stronger on rewatch, especially in the wider context of the MCU. Still, even for first-time viewers the action and spectacle of the original are well maintained and the introduction of yet further characters continues to impress.
After all these years, they stick the landing so damn well! An extremely fitting finale to the definitive superhero era and many of its main characters.
Sublimely well balanced, a perfect culmination of all the varying plot threads across the MCU and a cross-over event that rivals the source material itself. Practically perfect!
A brilliantly fun story that hits all the right beats that just happens to also be one of the best superhero origin movies out there.
A fun and distinctly different take on the MCU, providing a much-needed focus on one of its most important characters.
The Avengers movie that everyone wanted. Despite its flaws and plot holes, there's a lot of fun on offer here and some fantastic moments to Cap out (heh) a brilliant trilogy.
Marvel does espionage and does it extremely well. Who would have though that Captain America would be the trilogy that defined the early phase of Marvel movies.
Captain Marvel is played perfectly and looks set to be a fitting lead for the next generation of the MCU, even if some of the origin felt a little, well, unoriginal.
The first season is astounding, riveting, memorable, funny and utterly fantastic. The third almost lives up to that praise. The second has its moments. Overall, its an extremely solid take on the Man Without Fear and must-watch television for superhero fans.
An extremely faithful adaptation of the character with some excellent action sequences, but fails to really capture the spark of creativity that can make Deadpool truly great.
Whilst sitting the shadow of the first film, this still manages plenty of fun moments, and a much more interesting overall plot to boot.
A clever but slightly rushed meta-analysis of the comic book world with some excellent jokes and story beats. A whole lot of fun.
Visually beautiful and with some fun ideas, but whilst I struggle to find specific faults, it just never quite clicked.
Messy and far too overloaded, but with some nice moments and solid characters. Perhaps better as a TV series...
Perfection. A brilliant soundtrack, hilarious cast, and wonderful direction combine to make a superhero tour de force! Still makes me laugh hysterically, tear up occasionally, and love every damn minute – and I don't see that ever changing!
An almost worthy successor, with some excellent character development, yet another brilliant soundtrack, and a captivating story. Plus, it's utterly stunning to look at. Unfortunately, let down a little by some elements of the humour.
An excellent, action packed, heartfelt introduction to some of the new generation of Avengers.
A surprisingly rich and interestingly nuanced tale of revenge and justice, with plenty of excellent action and some flair animation.
A genuinely interesting idea executed extremely well, with great pacing and some very clever moments.
Entertaining but shallow.
A dark and depressing look at addiction, abuse and guilt wrapped up in a surprisingly entertaining superhero show. The first season is astounding; the second struggles finding the light outside of its immense shadow.
A mature, nuanced take on the beloved character. Jackman can retire from the role knowing that he finally did Wolverine right.
A little twisty at times and surprisingly lacking in action, but brilliantly portrayed and hugely enjoyable.
An epic adventure with pitch perfect casting, superb direction, and some truly inventive layered animation.
An interesting enough film but the problem is that the source material is just far superior. Read that, skip this.
Hits all the key story points and sets the stage for a more modern take on the wall crawler.
Beautiful choreography and some stunning visuals elevate what is otherwise a fairly by-the-numbers Marvel outing, albeit a highly enjoyable one.
Takes time to find its feet, and I can't help but feel that under all the humour is a grittier law show that would actually be kinda great, but by the end, I was really quite enjoying the dynamics. Plus, Tatiana Maslany is fantastic.
A fun, grounded, and often charming take on Spider-Man that does a whole lot to also move the MCU forward. Top marks.
The Spider-Man movie you've always wanted but never imagined you would get. Truly brilliant and a welcome addition to the MCU.
An excellent look into what makes Spiderman, Spiderman, whilst paying respect to the franchises that came before. Top marks all around.
So much action-packed goodness with a great plot and yet further fantastic performances from the central cast. Frankly, Netflix are beginning to rival their silver screen relatives in terms of deserved hype.
The MCU's grimdark, broody antihero gets a definitive take thanks to Netflix and the excellent Joe Bernthal. Season one comes highly recommended.
An enjoyable introduction to the Asgardian arm of the MCU, with some great world-building and fun dialogue. Not the best plot but an entertaining ride throughout.
An extremely fun, vibrant and action-packed ride that lacks emotional depth. Easily the best Thor film but not quite worthy of inclusion in the MCU's greatest hits.
The black sheep in the MCU family but still a fun enough ride, despite some irritating human characters and flat humour.
A little overloaded, but they did well to balance the legacy of the first film and the future of the franchise.
A refreshingly original opening half, with some excellent character arcs and depth, but a little let down by a more cookie-cutter superhero finale.
A wonderful collection of ideas with some surprisingly dark moments and a finale that was much more interesting than I'd ever have guessed.
