The following is the current list of Marvel movies I need to catch up on, any advice on whether to hit any in particular first or whether there are any duds I can skip?

Avengers: Age of Ultron
Ant-Man
Doctor Strange
GotG Vol. 2


Skip Dr strange. Very boring.


That's a shame, Strange was the one I was most excited about!

Still, good to hear Ant-Man is worth a go, might give it a punt the week.

I thought it was very good as an introduction to the character and the concepts of magic in the Marvel Universe. Don't skip it.

Yeah - I hope to get through them all as I've yet to watch one that I didn't enjoy, I'm just going to need to take a while as free time is quite sparse at the moment, it's taken me this long just to catch up this far!

They're all worth watching, Dr. Strange and Age of Ultron are the most flawed but still entertaining in their own way and the more invested you are in the MCU the more I think you'll get out of it, particularly when it comes to the next Avengers films.

I'm not convinced that anybody saying either are bad has ever actually seen a genuinely bad film :slol:

It's like saying Cars is a bad film, sure compared to most Pixar films it is pretty bad, but compared to some of the OTHER animated films out there, it's practically a golden gooseberry fool...

Cars 2 on the other hand :dread:

Dr Strange is much better than Age of Ultron, that film just didn't work. But Antman and GotG2 are streets ahead of those 2, probably enjoyed GotG2 the most though (saw it at an iMax and it was a treat)

I'm surprised with the hate Age of Ultron is getting all of a sudden. I thought I was the only one here who didn't like it

It's pretty far from a bad film, but it's also pretty far from being the best of the MCU as well.

It's definitely not a film that benefits from being rewatched, Ioved it at the cinema, saw it twice and really enjoyed it both times. However, I watched it again last week as I've been rewatching some of the Marvel films lately and it definitely doesn't hold up as well as many of the others.

Ultron is so poorly developed as a character and his motivations aren't ever particularly clear. The different scenes often don't flow together that well and some of the dialogue is quite jarring. It feels particularly weak coming from Civil War which is practically an Avengers film but is far stronger in all areas.

Despite that, I still found it entertaining - it's just probably more of a 6/7 out of 10 rather than the 9 I thought it was when I first watched it.

Anyone spot the Far Cry 3 connection to Spider-Man Homecoming?

Michael Mando played Mac Gargan who will later become the Scorpion

Thanks to all for the input on my Marvel To Do list - hopefully if I've lowered my expectations for a few of them I may end up enjoying them more.

Going to try and hit Ultron this weekend!

That's excellent. I'd like that for my non-existent games room.

Will see the new one next week probably.

Finally saw it today and I loved it! SO much better than The Not-So Amazing Spider-Man! :D

I was surprised to see almost all seats filled for Spider-Man on a Sunday matinee at my local cinema too, it's usually dead!

Forgot to say I saw Spider-Man too the other day. Absolutley loved it :mrgreen:

So funny throughout, it out Deadpool'd Deadpool for me. Probably one of the strongest villains yet with a interesting motive, fantastic supporting cast from everybody, just a good standalone tale. If I had to say a negative, like practically all superhero films a bit too long but it was so enjoyable it's easily looked past.

Top 3 Marvel film for me.

It's going to ease it's way over the overall box office earning for both of the Amazing Spider-Man films over the next couple of weeks I think - they really did kill the character in the box office with their shittiness.

Yeah it looks like it's doing ok now although it's uk performance is disappointing. I agree that the two amazing spiderman films seem to have hurt it's appea though. I definitely think it's the best spiderman film.

Yep I agree. Such a shame that there wasn't much buzz for the film on release.
