Post Marvel-movie-marathon reaction

Being stuck in my house these past few weeks has been boring, to say the least. Finding ways to pass the time has proven itself to be very difficult. So, to cure my boredom, what better way to do so than rewatch every single Marvel movie in order?

Watching every movie took me about a week. The movies are all fairly long, but I had plenty of time to watch all of them. I had previously watched some of them, but I watched them again to refresh my memory.

My favorite has always been “Captain America: The First Avenger”, and after watching every movie again, that remained my favorite by far. Out of all the movies, it definitely had the most intriguing plot, and every part of that plot was relevant. Many of the other movies added scenes that just didn’t need to be there, and this movie did none of that. It was also the first movie in the Marvel series, and did a great job of introducing the basis for the rest of the movies.

Another one of my favorites was “Thor: Ragnarok”. Thor has always been a favorite character of mine, and his interactions with Hulk in this movie were hilarious. Loki was probably the best part about this movie, seeing he and Thor work together was awesome. His sarcasm remains funny in every movie he appears in.

Not all of the movies can be great, though, and there were a few disappointing ones. “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” was hard to watch; I struggled to get through the whole thing. The plot was all over the place, and I felt like everything kept going back and forth the whole time. Another one I was surprised with how little I enjoyed it was “Captain America: Civil War”. I thought the duo of Captain America and Iron Man would make a fantastic movie, but it was frankly a bit boring. However it is very important to watch in order to learn some must-know facts about the Avengers.

One of the movies that was surprisingly good was “Doctor Strange”. I had never seen it, and when I saw him in “Endgame”, I had no clue who he was. This film was very different than the other Marvel movies, which made the series interesting, as it brought a little variety. The way the movie seemed so real yet so obviously unrealistic kept me intrigued the whole time, and although it wasn’t too significant to the plot of any other movies, it was still a good watch.

To anyone bored at home with access to Disney+, I strongly recommend watching the Marvel series. Watching them again, in order, offered me an entirely new perspective on the series, and I noticed so many new features about the movies I had never previously observed.
