Before I got a new job and moved out of the family home, me and my mum planned to rewatch one MCU film a week on the run up to the release of Avengers: Infinity War at the end of April (it’s released on 27th April in the UK). That plan has had to change due to us no longer living together, so now the idea is for me to come home for the odd weekend and binge watch at least four MCU films each weekend in time for Avengers: Infinity War.
While we’re doing this binge watching I’ve decided I’m going to “review” each MCU film. I put review in quotation marks as some of the earlier MCU films, definitely Phase One (Iron Man – The Avengers) and potentially Phase Two (Iron Man 3 – Ant-Man) may be more of a discussion post or have a few spoilers in them. This isn’t definitely how I’m going to write those ones – I mean, I haven’t started writing any of them yet so who knows! – but I thought I should preface this project with a potential spoiler warning.
If I’ve reviewed any of the films already when they were first released, I’ll start my rewatch review with a link to my original review so if you’re interested you can see how my thoughts on the film may or may not have changed over time.
My plan is to post one of these MCU reviews a week, as that will coincide almost perfectly with the release of Avengers: Infinity War, but that will only work if I do manage to get home and watch about four films each weekend. It’s doable, but it’ll just need a bit of forward planning. I’ll still have at least one new-to-me film review posted each week so it won’t be a Marvel overload.
I hope you enjoy me revisiting the MCU. These films mean a lot to me as they and their characters have made up a lot of my formative years. Starting this off I’ll say my favourite MCU films are Iron Man, The Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Solider – it’s been a while since I’ve watched them and the rest of the MCU so it’ll be interesting to see if that’s changed over time.
What’s your favourite MCU film?
I’d say those are my favorites too! Plus, I really enjoyed Ragnarok! Good luck!
Thank you! Yeah Ragnarok was a lot of fun 🙂
I have a bit of an unpopular opinion in that Iron Man is my least favourite Avenger. As such I enjoy the movies without him the most; but yeah, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the best. I am very much looking forward to your thoughts!
That’s OK, I know some people who don’t like him – you’re not alone! I do get why people don’t like Iron Man as much, and rewatching his first films definitely highlighted how arrogant he is but also how he has grown over the various films. Iron Man is one of my favourites though so I’m probably biased 😛
