Rank the Films: Marvel Cinematic Universe

As any regular reader of this blog will know, lists are pretty darn nifty. I have a profound appreciation for straight-up lists. This is the thinking behind Rank the Films, a regular feature that pulls apart the pros and cons of a series of films, ranking them in order of bad to good.

This month, to celebrate the release of Captain America: Civil War this week, I'm revisiting all thirteen Marvel Cinematic Universe films (count 'em!) and ranking them in order from worst to best. 

And yes, this list includes Civil War - I've seen it and I'm including it on my ranking. Where does it rate? What'll come out on top? Well, read on to find out...

Who doesn’t love a good underdog story? Incredible feats of daring have captured our imagination countless times before, but few capture the same stirring heart and soul as Eddie the Eagle.

Quotes Corner: Marvel Edition

Quotes Corner is a regular feature that I run where I compile the wittiest, snappiest and most memorable lines (for better or worse) from a particular TV show, film or celebrity - in the past I've covered Modern Family, Community and Jennifer Lawrence to name just a few.

This month, to celebrate the release of Captain America: Civil War this Thursday, I've compiled my favourite quotes, quips and one-liners from all 12 Marvel films to date. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is renowned for its fast-paced zingers from characters like Tony Stark and Peter Quill, so here are some of my faves - let me know yours in the comments below!

Rank the Films: The Hunger Games

As any regular reader of this blog will know, I think lists are pretty darn nifty. I have a profound appreciation for straight-up lists. This is the thinking behind Rank the Films, a regular feature that charts the highs and lows through a series of films, ranking them in order from worst to best.

To celebrate The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 arriving on DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow, I thought I'd reflect on the The Hunger Games series as a whole. From 2012's promising opener to the morbid final chapter from last November, this is the series ranked from worst to best - question is, where does your favourite rest on my list? Give it a read and let me know your thoughts in the comments section down below!

Truth, Justice and the New American Way (VOR)

Captain America and Superman are two very similar characters in an ideological sense; so why is it that Marvel can get the former so right whilst DC have gotten the latter so horrendously wrong?

Introducing Marvel Month 2016

With Captain America: Civil War hitting cinemas in just a matter of weeks, I've decided to dedicate a series of posts throughout the month of April to all things Marvel. 

From their highly-successful series of interconnected films to their darker Netflix series of shows, April is once again playing host to a celebration of Marvel's fantastic films, TV shows and characters.

I'll have a review for the latest season of Daredevil as well as speculation on the future of their Phase 3 slate of films and a range of other articles also. Oh, and a bumper review for Captain America: Civil War upon its release of course.

So keep your eyes peeled over the next few weeks for all things Marvel during Marvel Month 2016! Enjoy!
