Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog 🙂
So today we’re back for another round of Forcing my mum to watch all the MCU movies. I explained all about how this movie marathon came about in Part One if you want to go and read about that as well as my thoughts on the first eight movies.
I’m actually pretty surprised how fast we’ve gotten through this next round. I cant tell if my mum’s really invested in this or just wants to get it over and done with as quickly as possible.
Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
You know, I’m really sad to say that I didn’t really enjoy this movie. I don’t know why. I’ve watched it before at some point when it came out but I never watched the last 20 minutes for some strange reason.
I like all of the characters in this, I like the idea of this rag tag group of criminals coming together to save the world but I kinda found this movie boring. My favourite part was the after credits scene with lil sapling Groot and Drax
Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
I do not like this movie in the slightest. For one thing it’s confusing and other than introducing Wanda and Vision it serves no real purpose, in my opinion.
And for another thing, there’s a scene where it’s revealed that Natasha can’t have babies, that she was sterilised by the Red Room and she says to Bruce Banner something along the lines of “who’s the monster now?” (I’m paraphrasing but you get the idea). Because clearly a woman who can’t reproduce is just as monstrous as the Hulk, a raging green monster.
👏A 👏woman 👏 who 👏 can’t 👏 or 👏 doesn’t 👏 want 👏 to 👏 have 👏babies 👏 IS 👏 NOT 👏 A 👏 MONSTER!!!👏
Besides that there was like one or two good moments for example:
- The after party scene where the Avengers try and pick up Thors hammer (and Steve makes it wabble. I see you)
- Every Pietro and Hawkeye interaction
- Tony Stark thinking his legacy would be to kill the Avengers made me emotional because no my dude. No.
(That got lowkey ranty but it was necessary)
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. (2017)
Volume 2 was so much better in every way from the get go. That opening scene with the fight and baby Groot dancing to the music and waving to everyone. MY HEART!🖤😭
I thought this was funnier, I thought the plot was more interesting and just overall I had a much better time watching this.
Also like I said this is full of Baby Groot which is an immediate win. I truly think Baby Groot and Detective Pikachu are a gift on the world.
Ant Man (2015)
Not every movie in this franchise is incredibly amazing and that’s okay. I thought Ant Man was very enjoyable and easy to watch.
I really liked the humour and the relationships, the relationship between Scott Lang and his daughter Cassie was the sweetest thing ever.
Also Hope Pym with a bob cut is a LEWK.
Captain America: Civil War
AKA the Avengers need therapy. AKA Bucky Barnes!!!!!!!
I do not care about the plot of this movie, like whatsoever. This is my second time watching this and I still don’t get, still don’t care however, my favourite parts were:
- Literally every single Spiderman scene. I love him with all my being.
- James Buchanan Barnes
- Ant Man during the airport scenes with his iconic lines of “I’m your concionse, we don’t speak much” and Giant-Man.
- The Winter Solider.
- Clint and Natasha fighting but still being besties.
- Bucky Banres.
(Can you tell I really love Bucky Barnes?)
Spiderman Homecoming (2017)
Tom Hollands version of Spiderman is literally the cutest and purest thing in the world.
That’s literally all I have to say about this movie. Oh, and Ned is literally me if I found out my bestie was a superhero.
Doctor Strange (2016)
(I love this poster art)
Benedict Cumberbatch has a type cast, I’m starting to see, and that is “egotistical jerk”.
I really loved this movie. It’s so different not only within the MCU but other big blockbusters too. I love the visuals, it’s so stunning. And yeah, Stephen Strange is a douche but he overcomes that and in the end I like him. I am so excited for the sequel.
I’m very pleased with this round of movies. I’m also very pleased to see that the movie posters are getting considerably better as time goes on.
The next round of movies are probably the ones I’m most looking forward to mainly because of Thor Ragnarok and Spiderman Far From Home.
I start back at school today (as you’re reading this) so I don’t think we’ll get to them quite as fast as we got through this lot but I’m looking forward either way.
Thanks for reading 🙂
