I have embarked on an adventure where I’m going to watch everything in the Marvel Cinematic Universe before Avengers: Infinity War comes out in May 2018. I’m pumped about it and I’ve already started. Here, you’ll be able to find my short summary review and rating of everything, along with when I watched. Hurray!

And, for those who are curious, I found the “ideal order” to watch things in from this website. Pretty nifty, right?

  1. Captain America: The First Avenger. I was on board for this movie from the very first ice scene (mostly because that reminded me of Transformers, another favorite of mine). I thought Elrond as the villain was excellent, I loved Cap with Agent Carter, and Chris Evans, man. Ugh, I love him. He was able to play the scrawny kid at the beginning and keep that same persona even when he had muscles later on. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. 4/5 stars (watched on 11/29/17).
  2. Marvel’s Agent Carter (S1). I loved Peggy Carter so much. Also, Jarvis is a person! And Howard Stark! And Chad Michael Mudface is excellent in all his scenes – I hate it a little, but I love him as Agent Thompson. And sweet sweet Agent Sousa. Oh man, I’ve fallen in love with this Marvel universe and characters. This has brought me joy. 4.5/5 stars (watched 11/30/17 – 12/4/17).
  3. Marvel’s Agent Carter (S2). This picks up right where we left off, and the plot has thickened! Gosh, I love Agent Carter. She’s such a beautiful badass. Most of the characters returned from the first season, but there were two additions I’ve especially loved – Jason Wilkes the physicist, and Vinnie Van Lowe as the mobster. I will watch anything with Vinnie Van Lowe in it. ❤ 4/5 stars (watched 12/5/17 – 12/14/17).
  4. Iron Man (rewatch). I mean. It’s Iron Man! This was the first film made in this modern version of the MCU and the first one I saw (with an ex of mine, so also, nostalgia). Robert Downey Jr. is the best, and Tony’s interactions with all the people around him – but especially Pepper and Rhody – are my favorites. I’ll always watch RDJ when he’s playing the superhero version of himself. 4.5/5 stars (rewatched on 11/29/17).
  5. The Incredible Hulk. Decided not to watch – I want to stay pure to the Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner thing. That’s probably not really a thing, but I’m doing it anyway. -/5 stars (did not watch).
  6. Iron Man 2. I thought I had seen this, but I definitely hadn’t! The first appearance of Natasha Romanov, plus more Nick Fury and Agent Coulson, plus, FINALLY, a kiss between Tony and Pepper! And all the action and craziness was just delightful. Thoroughly enjoyed, although it wasn’t better than the first one, I don’t think. 4/5 stars (watched 12/1/17).
  7. Thor. So far, this has been the cheesiest of all the Marvel movies I’ve watched. I enjoy Natalie Portman, but the character she played here was… a bit much for me. I loved Chris Hemsworth and Kat Dennings, though. And Loki is probably one of my all-time fave villains. Overall, it was cheesy but okay. I should have expected nothing less from a Kenneth Branagh movie. 3/5 stars (watched 12/3/17).
  8. Marvel’s The Avengers (rewatch). Well hot damn, I forgot how kickass this movie is. So many characters, so many plots coming together, so much wonderful superhero-ness. I’d watch this again and again. This was the last thing I’d seen before (how that’s possible, I’m not sure), so everything going forward is uncharted territory. The adventure continues! 5/5 stars (rewatched 12/3/17).
