Wish me luck, friends.
all the starks are a mess
"I'd be prepared to lose a few with you."
this exchange alone deserves a pulitzer
also, justice for pepper potts, my underrated queen of the world and all things
LOOK DON CHEADLES RHODEY NEVER HAD THIS MUCH BROMANCE
also the big final showdown of this film is so short??? like i get origin stories are front end heavy but the actual fight scene is v underwhelming (i still love this film tho)
my brother said it wasn't as bad as he expected, so with that glowing recommendation, lets go
wait... thats not right
not just fucking around in tonys lab. give me avengers style lab coat and a microscope bruce banner
why is tony involved in the avengers at this point and then isnt involved in iron man 2
next time, on sarah recaps the marvel cinematic universe, i offer unto thee iron man 2, a genuinely horrible film saved only by rhodey and natasha
stay tuned, im ready to defend my choices
tony: I called this press conference today to talk about the new direction of Stark Industries
*forty seconds later*
tony: and yES I LIKE FUCKING MEN AND WOMEN. THE TRUTH IS, I AM BISEXUAL.
who watches im2 and doesnt want to immediately give tony a hug and wrap him in a blanket
"And she wrote a story as well."
welcome to asgard/new mexico
also hes PAINFULLY blond what was it w phase 1 and everyone being intensely blond
yoU COULD NEVER HAVE A FROST GIANT SITTING ON THE THRONE OF ASGARD
am i right in thinking he's secretly evil
also clint is so bummed he doesnt get to shoot anyone lmao i dont think the mcu ever figured out what it wanted to do with barton??? dude shoulda had a netflix show based off matt fraction comics 👍
i dunno, that guy never tells me anything.
and it says a lot about kenneth branaghs determination to treat this average superhero movie like the fuckin bard thats its NOT played for laughs
like its not good, but its also not bad. it serves decently as an origin but since its sequel was so shite its hard to give it the credit tbh
also the utter wastage of Natalie Portman is one of the MCU's biggest crimes
ugh i admit it this movie is iconic until red skull shows up
this movie has a stellar cast
"..... I thought you were smaller."
(gimme bucky/tony all day long)
I AM READY TO ADMIT THAT CAPTAIN AMERICA IS A REALLY GOOD MARVEL MOVIE.
not just an unsubtle advert. it's literally a literal trailer.
wow. the avengers. six people. in one movie. groundbreaking.
probably since my pre-age of ultron rewatch tbh (tho same w all phase 1 movies)
still mad at 2012 tumblr and taylor swift for ruining tom hiddleston for the rest of us
.... what do we do
*cue avengers title card*
SHIT THAT'S SUCH A GOOD OPENING
this whole movie is iconic
how do people have a favourite avenger that ISN'T bruce banner
"Not to men like you."
"There are no men like me."
"There are ALWAYS men like you."
"I'm not overly fond of what follows."
look joss whedon is trash and age of ultron is a shit movie but the dialogue in this film is everything
jfc its SO FUCKING QUOTABLE
have care how you speak. loki is beyond reason but he is of asgard and he is my brother
he killed eighty people in two days
... hes adopted
tony and bruce just met and he invited him to hang in his personal lab 😍😍😍 love at first sight
"Captain America is on threat watch?"
"You're on that list? Are you above or below angry bees?"
the genius billionaire playing philanthropist scene is SO well done in offering their different ideas of what they fight for, of sacrifice, and the very essence of heroism
"sorry kids you don't get to see my party trick after all"
marvel has always struggled w secondary antagonists and its part of the reason this film is so good tbh
love them whedon cameos
that is THE most iconic moment in the MCU to date
gr8 version of my fave shakespeare play
THEY PUT THANOS IN THE MID CREDITS SCENE OF THE AVENGERS (2012) THIS IS THE MOST DRAWN OUT CINEMATIC EVENT IN HISTORY
6) iron man 2
5) the incredible hulk
3) captain america: the first avenger
2) iron man
1) the avengers
i'm open to disputes but also this ranking is correct and uncontroversial
THIS WAS RELEASED IN APRIL
ughfhdhsgh tony sweetheart 💔💔💔
like if you deeply care about tony it goes from good to great
"Sweetheart, that could be the name of my autobiography."
i dont even know thors dude squad's names
like say what u want about tom hiddleston but he acts circles around all the main marvel actors except probably rdjr
plus chris eccleston neither looks like himself nor not like himself leading to a confusing thing where your only reaction to malekith as a character is a hyperawareness that it is chris eccleston in a weird prosthetic
THIS ISN'T GOOD STORY TELLING
it's so good
aka the entire infinity war filming strategy lmao the russos taking their own advice
EXCEPT BUCKY LOL
WHO THE HELL IS BUCKY
sam is everything 10/10
"the thing is, you don't have to. im with you til the end of the line, pal"
I just made an embarrassing noise i forgot how sweet vintage 1940s bucky and steve were
robert redford is SO GOOD in this film
i actually really like elisabeth olsen as wanda but she hasnt had the screen time or characterisation of late 😔
SEBASTIAN STAN IS SO GOOD LIKE HE IS BRINGING IT TO SUCH A CRUCIAL ROLE
question what happens to the ether when the orb explodes the collectors museum ??? is it okay
at least in death he'll be free from ur bullshit
BUT NO!! ONLY BUCKYS ACTIONS ARE PUT IN CONTEXT OF HIS MH!! TONY IS JUST RECKLESS AND ARROGANT!! this literally drove me off tumblr
hey look its ulysses klaue
more rhodey pls
also wtf it has a post-graphics credits scene but not an END end credit scene wtf marvel
1980s power suit peggy carter is Good Content and scott lang is wholesome and i love him
scotts daughter is a savage little fucker and i love her
"its really important to me that cap never knows about this"
6) thor: the dark world
5) avengers: age of ultron
4) iron man 3
2) guardians of the galaxy
1) captain america: the winter soldier
this was tough bc im3 and ant-man are good for different reasons but this is what im going with
SAY SOMETHING. IF YOU DON'T YOU'LL REGRET IT.
i hope we get some strong allied sam/rhodey action in IW i feel they'd be good buds if they weren't fighting each other
"Compromise where you can, but where can't, don't. ... Even when the whole world is telling you to move, it is your duty to plant yourself like a tree, look them in the eye and say no--you move."
"Two people in a room can get more done than a hundred." lmao hands up if u know people who could do with better understanding this
look the history and conflict between tony and steve is handled so well in avengers and civil war and SO BADLY in age of ultron
THIS MOVIE HAS SUCH GOOD DIALOGUE OKAY
I adore Scott but it makes no sense that he'd risk jail AGAIN and being separated from Cassie for this nonsense fight he has literally no skin in
says the dude in a metal bird costume sam
"I hate you."
i like that sam and bucky became best friends almost immediately im here for their bromance
peter and tchalla are literally nutting people they've NEVER MET
jesus tony how old is this guy
I dont know i didn't carbon date him???
honestly i used to find steve so annoying on principle but my respect and appreciation for him has grown exponentially in recent times
ANYWAY thats civil war done. SO GOOD. it's a struggle to see how they can make IW better, not juggling so much ??
haven't seen doctor strange since it came out in cinemas 18 months ago and just had to take the plastic wrapping off the DVD lmao what a weird feeling ?? anyway let's go
i will cheer from my seat
ready for the third in four marvel movie where they use the same de-aging tech lol
why is gamora wearing futuristic space high heels that seems impractical
.... three HUNDRED?
"Pretty sure this guy is a war criminal now but I have to show you these videos, it's required by the state."
chris evans had so much fun filming these
"Well, I wanted you to be BETTER!"
also ANTHONY HOPKINS AS LOKI AS ODIN IS INCREDIBLE LMAO
like i feel nakia would be like ???? dude
you don't like my royal sandals?

4) thor: ragnarok
3) spider-man: homecoming
2) captain america: civil war
1) black panther

Special mention: Peter Dinklage 👍
second o nly to the "tony is the soul stone" theory???? weird
also,,,, the way bruce says "tony" 😌 why dont people ship this, i literally do not and will not ever understand why this ship is so tiny
they just have the best dynamic, they're buddies who respect each other, their "sexual tension" isnt just active dislike *coughSTONYcough*
LOOK PROTECT PETER AND TONY OK
SO FUCKING SAVAGEEEEEEE THIS IS THE HARSHEST BURN IN THE ENTIRE MCU POOR TONY BUT ALSO TRUE BASICALLY
they got BENECIO DEL TORO to come in to get thrown in a box, yell magnificent a few times and wave,,,
"Yes, they taught it on Asgard, it was an elective."
this entire rocket and thor scene is wonderful, amazing writing and performance and like, GIVING ROCKET AND THOR SPACE TO B R I N G I T
"What master do I serve? What am I meant to say, Jesus?"
protect mantis !!!!
Steve and Bucky are hardly in this movie and like,,, sorry but good
"I am Groot!"
"... I am Steve Rogers."
(tbh literally fuck quill, hes still hot ok) (same w thor)
the worldwide box office: if you come back to life ill give you 1.3 billion dollars
tchalla: sup its time for cat life number 2
- haha was that really worth staying for
- wait who were those two people again
- oh my god did they just call wonder woman???
