Review Thor: Ragnarok

It’s no surprise to anyone who knows me that Iron Man is my favourite MCU character. And if I look at the Avengers, Bruce Banner/Hulk and Thor, son of Odin, are tied at second place. There’s just something about that lovable blonde doofus that resonates with me. It helps that he has a very interesting dynamic with his sibling(s). So I’ve been looking forward to Thor: Ragnarok from the moment the movie was announced. Even before I’d seen the impressive cast list, or the first few visuals.

Review: Spider-Man: Homecoming

To be fair, I was never truly into Spider-Man. I’ve only seen the first two Toby Maguire movies, which were fine, I guess, but nothing mind-blowing. They mostly made me wonder why Peter looked way older than a high school kid. And the trailers for the Andrew Garfield ones just never drew me in.

Review: Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2

I’ve been awaiting the release of Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 with bated breath ever since the first one ended and announced we’d be getting a sequel in 2017. I went to go see it yesterday – one of the perks of living in Europe; you get to see the MCU movies earlier than most.

Review: Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange is the MCU’s first movie that deals with straight up magic. I must admit I knew very little about Doctor Strange, except that his name was Stephen Strange (name-drop in Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and that he was a doctor. I was very excited for this one, and also a little nervous. The trailers looked good, and the promo pictures of Benedict were great, but there was also a lot of outrage about Tilda Swinton playing The Ancient One. But I put all of my preconceived notions aside as I stepped into the theatre.

Review: Marvel’s Agent Carter S2

Ever since Agent Carter season 1 ended, I’d hoped the series would continue for a couple of more years. My wish came true – partially. There was a riveting season 2, but unfortunately there won’t be any more seasons of my favourite female non-superhero of the MCU. (I count the Marvel TV shows and Netflix shows as the MCU as well.)

Review: Captain America 3: Civil War

I went to see this movie on the 30th of April and it’s at times like these that I’m glad I write short spoiler-free reviews and don’t dive deeply in themes and such, because for this movie all that I could delve into is my sea of tears. This movie was so hyped, and I was so hyped for this movie, and it lived up to it. This movie was all I wanted it to be, and it broke my heart just as I feared it would.
