    And the puppy bowl is successful in getting a lot of those adopted to a forever home. So it serves several purposes.:)

    Finally watched Doctor Strange. That was freaking awesome. I can't overstate how much I love seeing these characters I've loved since childhood come to life like this, perfectly cast and distilled to the purest versions of themselves, ripped from the page and thrown into live action.

    I am completely behind the times as I have yet to see Doctor Strange and Capt America: Civil War.

    Those are two of the very best the MCU has to offer, imo.
    Happy watching Bazinga'd!

    I think you'll like Rebels @The Vanguard

    I've seen so many youtube breakdown videos in my suggested section. But that doesn't count as watching the series.

    It's on Disney XD right? I don't have cable or satellite. Is it on Netflix yet??? @Dagobahsystem

    Yes, it's on Disney XD. Not on Netflix yet. @The Vanguard

    Seasons one and two are on blu ray/DVD and you can also watch it on Google play and services like that.

    Saw The LEGO Batman movie last night....it's pretty amazing. Highly recommend it, especially if you are a Batman fan.

    It's one of Marvel's best IMO

    The only two I like more are Age of Ultron and GOTG.

    I will be seeing GOTG 2 on opening weekend however.

    I highly recommend both, Strange is my 3rd favorite Marvel movie and CW is my 4th. :D

    I find it hard to rank them past the top three. At a certain point I more or less end up liking them equally in small groupings. I also don't really count The Incredible Hulk; it may as well be non-canon. Also, despite both Thor movies being place at the bottom of my list (I don't hate them, I just find them weaker than the others), Thor: Ragnarok is the MCU movie I'm looking forward to the most, and that's no small feat given it's going up against the sequel to my second favorite MCU movie and a film starring a pitch-perfect rendition of my favorite superhero. Logan is the superhero film I'm looking forward to most overall, though.

    1. The Winter Soldier
    2. Guardians of the Galaxy
    3. Iron Man
    4. Civil War
    5. Age of Ultron
    6. The Avengers
    7. Doctor Strange
    8. Ant-Man
    9. Iron Man 3
    10. The Dark World
    11. Thor
    12. Iron Man 2

    It sounds sounds too weird and comic booky not to top the list. Taika Waititi directing? Thor with his classic helmet trapped without Mjolnir on a gladiator planet and forced to fight the Hulk, who's rocking Roman centurion armor? Doctor Strange, complete with yellow gloves? The late 80s/early 90s NES cover art looking logo? Cate Blanchett as Hela? Tess Thompson as Valkyrie? Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster? Karl Urban as Skurge? Everything Waititi has said about the film's tone and sensibilities? There's just too much there not to get excited about; it sounds like a four color dream.

    Don't forget that it's basically an Infinity War prequel. Like Cap 3, this is going to be an Avengers movie first and foremost. Even though Thor is one of my favorite solo Avengers, I am more than OK with that.

    I liked that Civil War had every living Avenger to date (RIP Quicksilver), except for Hulk and Thor, whose places were taken by the newly introduced Black Panther and Spider-Man. Instead, Hulk and Thor get their own buddy-comedy intergalactic road trip movie with Doctor Strange, who missed the Civil War cut-off by a few months.

    And then we have the Guardians of the Galaxy doing their own thing on the other side of the universe.

    And the Defenders vigorously protecting a few square blocks of Midtown Manhattan.

    Oh crap, I forgot The First Avenger. That should be between Ant-Man and Iron Man 3.

    I'm surprised you guys put Thor so far down on your lists. I'd put it in my top 5, and well ahead of Dark World.

    It's a real toss up for me, but ultimately I give the edge to TDW simply because the death and subsequent funeral of Frigga affected me far more than anything from the first film.

    I liked TDW a lot because it felt like Thor meets Lord of the Rings.

    Also, the first Thor was one of the standout films of Phase One IMO.

    Alright, I saw Capt America, Civil War. Although I liked it, the politics sort of left a sour taste in my mouth.

    Involvement of the UN for instance. I know its part of the story, but a revised SHIELD in leadership conflict would have worked just as well in the story. Plus, the ending of Civil War is not the same as it was in the comics.
