So, it's been over a month now since Avengers: Endgame came out. As the hype begins to phase out, and the box office with it, it looks set to miss out on the #1 ever spot (barring later re-releases). That said, as much as there has been less talk about it recently, it was an undeniably big cinematic event, and as the big overarching sort-of-conclusion to a 22-film long story, there's a lot to look back to.

We all have our favorites among that large selection of movies, so let's just talk about them! Don't shy away from explaining what makes you love a certain film, go all in, tell us which character resonated with you, which scene blew you away, what your favorite moments were. Except, of course, if your favorite one is Thor: The Dark World, in which case no one wants to hear your story.

Of course, most of you know which is mine, and you've probably heard me talk about it to no end, so I'll refrain from doing so for now, but it's always nice to see people showing their passion for something. So, do!


(and Endgame too, I guess)

Black Panther. It's the best directed, has the highest level of craft, and has the most emotional standalone story. Best music too!

Please Watch/Share this video so it gets shown in Hollywood.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Civil War are my top two.

edit: I really like how grounded The Winter Soldier was, and also the espionage movie feeling. Love the combat scenes, and while Cap is a beast, it doesnt feel like he's totally invulnerable.

Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

I love the first Iron Man, and without it I really think we wouldn't have an MCU (particularly, of course, RDJ), but Guardians of the Galaxy takes this nod. Both 1 and 2 are great, but the first film just came out of nowhere for me and really established the zaniness of this series. If I had to pinpoint a favorite moment in the MCU, though, it would have to be the opening to Guardians 2. Mr. Blue Sky is just gold!



There hasn't been a lot of "why" so far.

Yeah, agreed on it having the best music, that soundtrack is fire. I'm not sure I agree on the "craft" part, because some of the CGI in that movie was questionable (that final fight, yikes), but in spite of that it's certainly one of my favorites, great movie.

You're one of mine, Mr. Blue Sky is absolute gold and so is that whole scene. The ending is definitely the best moment for me, though.

Probably Avengers 3 (haven’t seen 4 yet). I’m not really a huge MCU fan, my favorite Marvel movie is pre-MCU, Spider-Man 2.



Civil War

What I loved the most about that movie is that it was not about the cliché good vs evil, but about two different ideologies clashing.

And two ideologies that you could actually see their pros and cons and where they were coming from. You could totally understand both sides of the conflict and actually agree with their points. In fact, at the end of the movie I still couldn't pick a side.

But what hit me the most was the final conflict between Tony, Steve and Bucky. Damn, I had never watched a fight scene where I literally didn't know who to root for. I mean, I was completely able to relate to Tony's pain, rage and subsequent reaction. But I was also able to relate to Steve's desire and decision to protect his friend (which he knew was innocent and who was also suffering for what they made him do).

Damn, the whole scene was actually painful to watch. Up until that moment no other superhero movie had made me laugh, cheer and cry (Infinity War and Endgame managed to do that too, but Civil War will always be the first).

And you what? I think CW doesn't get enough credit. I mean, I usually hear people talking (you know, those people who pretend to sound smart by crapping on superhero or action movies) and saying that superhero movies are too formulaics and too samey. But really, how many movies out there can you point out that doesn't end with the classic hero vs villain scene but instead with a clash between two friends who are actually both right?



Just finally caught up and watched End Game over the weekend. Fantastic ending. Made me pretty emotional which was unexpected. Guess I was more emotionally invested in the MCU than I thought.

My favourite still remains Winter Soldier. It just got so many things right and really shifted the overall narrative with the fall of SHIELD. Awesome final battle as well.



Deadpool.

The rest of the films? I will only say that at the bottom lies Captain Marvel with Black Panther immediately on top of it.

I haven't seen Endgame yet.



Nintendo is selling their IPs to Microsoft and this is true because:

Winter Soldier is the best movie, but if I want to be honest, I enjoyed Thor: Ragnarok the most and have to call it my favorite. Visual imagery ripped straight off of album covers, Chris Hemsworth's charisma being fully unleashed. Guardians-style humor done better. Jeff Goldblum basically just being Jeff Goldblum as a literal "Disney" villain. Hulk getting screen time as more than just a 2-minute rage monster. Korg! Winning by blowing up your home planet.

Everything about that movie just popped. Thor went from the dullest Marvel series to the freshest instantly.
