I guess since we can't discuss spoilers in this topic we're ranking again. 

 

The MCU quiz is very handy since I find ranking pretty nebulous.

 

It changes with re-watches and moods but as of now

 

First 12:  A+  to A-

Next 10: B+ to D (only D is TDW)

 

  1. Avengers: Endgame
  2. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
  3. Avengers: Infinity War
  4. Captain America: Civil War
  5. Iron Man
  6. Captain America: The First Avenger
  7. Iron Man 3
  8. Avengers: Age of Ultron
  9. The Avengers
  10. Thor: Ragnarok
  11. Spider-Man: Homecoming
  12. Black Panther
  13. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
  14. Ant-Man
  15. Thor
  16. Captain Marvel
  17. Doctor Strange

End of the got fight was very deus-ex machine-y and felt like end of Avengers 1. After endgame that's just not satisfying

Didn't the final fight in Endgame also have have a Deus ex machina? Honestly, if you ask me, final fight in avengers was more satisfying than in Endgame. Less shaky cam and frantic editing.

Considering the the last 2 (or half of the last 22 movies) movies were about keeping, hiding, saving, collecting and using the stones by both sides the use of the stones at the end wasn't a Dues ex machina. It wasn't sudden, unlikely, unexpected or improbable.

 

The end fight in EG was hardly shaky cam but yes there was more editing since there was far more gong on with far more characters doing their thing.  The geography of the fight scene and tracking of what was going on was for all that was rather clear.

Hence we wind up with Alan Taylor directing TDW.

CAP WIELDING MJOLNIR!

 

CAP YELLING "AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!!!!" AND EVERY MARVEL CHARACTER KNOWN TO MAN CHARGING AT THANOS LIKE IT'S THE END OF RETURN OF THE KING OR SOME SHIT!

 

There I got it all out.

Holy shitballs, is that what leaked the week before release??? Damn, I am so glad I managed to stay away from it. I would have been pissed if I saw that before the rest of the movie.

@MovieMan89

 

I don’t know if you are just trolling for notes or what with that Iron Man comment. The movie 💯 holds up. More importantly, we would be here without it. Hulk flopped. Just because you don’t like it, doesn’t mean it isn’t great, or doesn’t hold historical significance. There are a lot of films in cinematic history I don’t really like, but I understand why they are milestones. 

 

I can’t believe -I am- the one having to say this: Respect Tony Stark and his film. He deserves it.

@aabattery will be pleased that the cameos that got the biggest reaction at my showing were Korg and Miek. Marvel needs to get the ball rolling on their standalone movie ASAP.

Not the stones but Thanos's ship getting destroyed by Captain Marvel. She randomly pops in and destroys the ship.

 

 

Also, I thought the geography wasn't made clear. Characters end up in random places when we cut back to them and we don't get a sense of where one character is compared to another.

That's why we all should see it two or three more times :D

You say it as a joke, but I think it makes sense.  The Russos have generally done a great job with the coherence of their action set-pieces.  They could have fumbled that this time (the battle was huge), but I also wouldn’t be surprised if they actually did think all of it through and that’s evident on screen on multiple viewings.

NY Times interview with Marcus & McFeely - it's a breakdown of the choices they made in the script, they don't get into everything they cover a lot

 

They wrote a master document in 2015 for the movies while they were filming Civil War

God, we got so #blessed with those two. Or at least I did.

Isn't this the same for every large scale battle though? I didn't know where the hell everybody was in any large battle in the LOTR movies, except for Helm's Deep because that battle just happened to have a wall lol. I had no idea where everybody was in the final battle of The Last Samurai. All I know is the heroes were kicking ass. That's it.

Gotta say I'm looking forward to seeing what the Russo bros do after this. I know they're making an addiction-themed action movie with Tom Holland that sounds like his answer to Oscar nominees Timothee Chalamet (his one time competition to play the same Peter/Spidey) and Lucas Hedges recently playing drug dudes but hopefully they get some nice gigs after handling these movies (and especially after handling the enormous scope of these two) and don't find themselves in a David Yates situation where they seem chained to almost exclusively making movies from within the billion dollar franchise they're famous for.
