The Marvel Cinematic Universe Tag

HELLO guys! So, as some of you probably, almost positively know, AVENGERS: ENDGAME IS OUT IN THEATERS TODAY. I’m not freaking out, you’re freaking out.

To celebrate this long-awaited day, I bring you an EPIC tag made by the EPIC Christine (you should check out her new WordPress blog, it is GORGEOUS). She was kind enough to tag me (THANK YOU SO MUCH CHRISTINE AGGGHHH), and so I will be answering her hopefully-not-to-difficult questions!

Guidelines //

  • Feel free to include the above graphic somewhere in your post (but it’s definitely not necessary).
  • Take the questions and answer them on your blog (or social media or wherever!)
  • Tag up to 5 other Marvel fans!

Let’s dig right into this!

• How were you introduced into the MCU fandom?

Well, this one’s relatively easy. When I was fifteen, my parents suggested me and my brother should watch the Marvel movies. I had never seen any of them, but everyone I knew seemed to love them (they particularly liked Iron Man).

And so it was as simple as that. For the next few weeks, we watched through all the movies, right up until Avengers: Age of Ultron, which I went to see in theaters. My FIRST Marvel movie I saw in theaters. It was a magical experience. I’ve gone to see every movie in theaters since.

• What’s your favorite Marvel film?

ARE YOU KIDDING. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO CHOOSE?

Okay, let’s see if I can narrow this down. XD

Captain America: Civil War was one I really, really enjoyed. Seeing this huge gathering of superheroes for the first time was super neat. And, I mean…Bucky Barnes. Need I see more? I still think about him grabbing that motorcycle and speeding away. That was epic. Bucky is epic.

also this knife flip is pretty neato

 

Spider-Man: Homecoming is another favorite. Tom Holland is an AMAZING Spider-Man, and he did SUCH a great performance. If Marvel seemed unrealistic, with world-threatening villains and insane superheroes, Homecoming was the movie to bring things back down to earth. Peter is just an average Joe, just like me, and I loved that I could relate to him.

Doctor Strange is also a really great movie. At first, I was hesitate. This was a character I had barely heard of before, but I liked Benedict Cumberbatch and the movie promised wizards and magic, so I figured it was worth a try. And it was. It was AWESOME. Almost reminiscent of Inception at times (which is one of my FAVORITE movies), and with lots of emotion and action, it was the perfect fit for me.

But, if I’m being honest…I think Thor: Ragnarok is probably my favorite of the MCU. It just works. The humor. The characters. The settings. It all just comes together perfectly for an epic movie. (And…well, Thor and Loki are in it, so…I was just bound to like it. XD)

• Top favorite Marvel character?

I LOVE THEM ALL. Can I just not choose? XD

Okay, let’s see. I really like Bucky Barnes, Stephen Strange, and Peter Parker. But my absolute favorite…would probably be a tie between Loki and Thor. I’M KIND OF A SUCKER FOR BROTHER STORIES. SO. YEAH. Also, how could you not like them, I mean look at that hair.

i know his hair is short now but shhh it’s still amazing

• If you were transported into the MCU and had to trade places with one of the superheroes, who would you choose?

OOH, I like this question! Hmm…I might pick Spider-Man. I think that would be pretty neat. That’d be a pretty chill role. Kind of. Okay, maybe not really. Maybe Hawkeye? Except I would lose the weird haircut. No offense, Clint. XD

• What are some of your favorite quotes from the films?

Spider Man Homecoming GIF

Civil War GIF

It Sucks Infinity War GIF

I could literally go on for hours. Marvel has some excellent dialogue.

• Which crew would you want to be part of the most: Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, or Revengers?

Though I would love being Avenger, I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to be on the same team as Thor, Loki, Bruce, and Valkyrie. Come on guys, let’s be real. They would be the most fun people to hang with.

• Favorite and least favorite ship?

Getting to the juicy stuff, are we? XD

Gosh, there are soooo many possible couples in the MCU. I think Scott Lang and Hope van Dyne‘s relationship is pretty gosh darn cute. Although, so are Peter Quill and Gamora…And Tony and Pepper…AGH. I CAN’T CHOOSE.

I do have one specifically that I don’t like, however. And that would be Sharon and Cap. Like, if there was ONE thing I didn’t like about Civil War, it was that stupid kiss scene. Like, really? RIGHT AFTER PEGGY’S FUNERAL? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

 

Captain America Nuts GIF
ARE YOU, CAP?!

 

Also, Bruce and Natasha…just doesn’t really appeal to me either. It’s just kinda meh. And it seems like the directors of Infinity War realized that, because they seem to TOTALLY shrug off the fact that they had feelings for each other.

• Favorite and least favorite villain?

*ahem*

Um. Prepare yourself.

This will probably come as a shock to you.

Ready?

LOKI IS THE BEST VILLAIN. END OF DISCUSSION.

Harry Potter Loki GIF

Although, can he even really be called a ‘villain’ anymore? XD

 

Infinity War Avengers GIF
he’s basically a hero, right?

 

Least favorite would probably be Thanos. I just wanna punch him in his raisiny little mug.

 

Head GIF
ARGH I HATE YOU

 

• Unpopular MCU opinion?

It would probably be the fact that I really liked Age of Ultron and Thor: The Dark World. They both seem to be universally disliked among Marvel fans, but I really enjoyed them! I thought Age of Ultron was a fun movie that raised the stakes and played right into Civil War, plus we get to see two new epic characters!

Love Them Elizabeth Olsen GIF

The Dark World had some genuinely great parts! Everything that takes place in Asgard was pure fun to watch, Loki was a stellar actor, and that sneaky ending, with Loki sitting on the throne, always makes me smile.

 

Tom Hiddleston Marvel GIF
this is gold? like, hello??

 

• What’s your favorite Stan Lee cameo scene?

I really think all of them are good. The ones in Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok are quite funny. And the one from Captain America: Civil War always cracks me up. XD

Stan Lee Film GIF

It isn’t TECHNICALLY the MCU, but I also think the one at the end of Big Hero 6 is pretty hilarious.

And that’s the tag!

Thank you so much Christine for creating this epic tag and thinking of me when you were tagging people!

And now, I shall tag // Laurel @ We’ll Be Fine | Kenzie @ Smudged Thoughts | and Faith @ The Writer’s Song

I hope you enjoyed! If you’re a Marvel fan, PLEASE consider yourself tagged. And let me know if the comments down below if you’re freaking out because AGH ENDGAME IS UPON US. O_o

Doctor Strange // A Movie Review

Hey guys! So, in the hectic-ness of NaNo, I managed to head down to the theater with a friend and watch Doctor Strange.

AND IT WAS SO GOOD.

 

Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions. Based in New York City’s Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilising a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel Cinematic Universe

High Lights:

  • The ACTION. It was never dull and all the fight scenes were really well done.
  • The HUMOR. For real though, it was hilarious, and really kept the mood light.
  • The special effects were AMAZING. It was really interesting to watch and I LOVED how the ‘magic’ was portrayed.
  • Also, there’s this adorable little cape that is just…adorable. ❤ He’s hilarious and alive and it’s great. 🙂
  • The plot was really thought out and I know some people will see the whole ‘time is relative’ thing as old hat, but I really liked it in this movie.
  • DOCTOR STRANGE. The entire reason of this movie. At first, he’s kinda of a mean guy, but as the story progresses, he’s actually really cool and funny. I LOVED how Benedict Cumberbatch portrayed him. And I also thought his American accent sounded very strange (ha, see what I did there?) He did it really well, it just felt weird, you know?
  • Wong is hilarious. That is all. 🙂

Low Lights:

  • I was a bit wary at first, since it really seemed to be pushing the sorcery and occult and such. And there is a good deal of that in the movie, but I felt it didn’t detract from the story.
  • A few parts were super, super intense. Like, really scary. But they helped push the story along, so I didn’t mind it too much.
  • As with all Marvel movies, there was a bit of swearing, but much less so than I’ve seen in other movies (at least I think so).

Conclusion:

If you haven’t already seen it, (and even if you have!) I highly recommend watching this movie. Plus, I have a feeling Doctor Strange is going to be a big part of the MCU (*cough cough* THE TWO CLIPS AT THE END *cough cough*), so that’s exciting. 😀

There you are, my little review. 🙂 I hope you got something out of it, and if you’ve already watched the movie, WE CAN TALK ABOUT IT. LIKE, A LOT. ❤

Captain America: Civil War // A Movie Review

So, I very recently saw Civil War so I thought I would write a short kind of review-type-thingy (actually just me rambling 😀 ) about it (with no spoilers) instead of a Character Conversation. 🙂

~~~~

EEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This was possibly the most stressful, but complete awesome Marvel movie I’ve yet to see. 😀

There wasn’t really a major plot per se, but I think the fact that the teams are divided and fighting against each other is reason enough to watch.

It was really hard for me, because I felt that Cap was fighting for the right reasons, but…I don’t know. Iron Man just has a special place in my heart. His was the first Marvel movie I ever watched.

But the teams. THE TEAMS. IT WAS SO GREAT.

.

It was SO STRESSFUL. Spiderman was basically yes, and Ant-man…YES. Vision is also yes. Hawkeye, yes. SO MUCH YES. The banter between the different heroes was hilarious.

Of course, Tony and Steve weren’t doing much of that. It felt like hey were too dead set on killing each other that they didn’t have time for…talking? I don’t know.

Also, BUCKY!!!!!!!!!!! YES-NESS!!!!!!!!!!!!! BUT ALSO NO!!!!!!!!!!!! I am having some major feels about him…to. much. feeling. I just…HELP ME.

This face broke me. It's the face of pure agony and, yes, yes, it just fucking broke me.

THE ENDING THOUGH. *chokes and flails* I can’t actually fully process what just happened. Like…wait WHAT?!

So yeah. Stuff happened.

~~~~

Sweating bullets, Bucky feels, and PAIN. Which we all know means GO SEE IT. NOW. O_O

And if you’ve already seen it we can bawl and freak out together!!!

*fangirls extremely hard*

*faints, whispering unintelligibly about Bucky*

Doctor Strange Trailer!!!

So, I was going to check my email, and then I saw this little thingy in the popular searches sidebar thing. Doctor Strange Movie 2016. So I was like, Huh, it’s probably just the promotional posters that came out a while ago. So in all innocence, I clicked the link.

AND GUYS.

THERE’S A THING. AND IT’S GREAT.

OKAY. I CAN’T. WHAT IS THIS MADNESS. WHY AM I USING ALL CAPS?

No, but seriously. I’m so EXCITED!!! 😀 Benedict Cumberbatch + Marvel = YESNESS.

.

Okay, I think you get the point. 🙂

Are you guys excited?! 😀

Movies of 2015

So, sorry, I haven’t been blogging, really very sorry…

But enough of that, here are the movies I’m looking forward to this year!

In order of release date:

Cinderella – Click here for trailer

I honestly don’t know why I haven’t seen this yet! We tried to get a bunch of our sisters and gal-friends to go in see it in the theaters, but… I guess I’ll have to wait for it to come out on Redbox…

Tomorrowland – Click here for trailer

This looks really interesting from what I’ve seen from the trailer. I’ve never been to the Tomorrowland Disney park, but this looks like it’ll be an interesting movie.

Inside Out – Click here for trailer

Yes, I know the trailer is the UK version, but it’s just so much funnier! I am really excited to see this one! I ❤ anything Disney or Pixar. This one looks really good, I love the idea behind it.

Minions – Click here for trailer

Hey, it’s minions, I’m all for it. My brother is pretty excited about this one. I think it’ll be a good one. 😉

Ant-Man – Click here for trailer

Excited is such a strong word… I don’t know about this one. I mean, I’ll go see it, of course, but… will I like it? Who knows…

Pixels – Click here for trailer

This one looks really cool in a weird and interesting sort of way… video games attacking the earth?!? What?! But I still think it will be really good.

The Peanuts Movie – Click here for trailer

What can I say? This looks adorable!!! I can’t wait!

~~~~~

That’s all the movies I’ve got!

I can’t wait to see all of them!

😀

P.S. I’m totally failing in posting. I need to step it up! I’ll have some good stuff on here…eventually… 😉

AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!!

Ok, scratch what I just said about the movie, I SAW IT YESTERDAY!

 ~ SPOILERS! SPOILERS! SPOILERS!

stop sign photo: stop sign printwhenroomisdone.jpg

Just a warning.

AAAAHHHH!!!!!

PIETRO. WHY. DID. YOU. DO. THAT.

SPOILERS! SPOILERS! SPOILERS! ~

This was such an interesting movie!

I felt it was much deeper than the previous one which is not necessarily a bad thing.

Things happened. Some good. Some bad. (…..)

That’s all I can say right now.

My mind is thinking a lot.

In short, WATCH IT.

You won’t be sorry… 🙂

Avengers: Age of Ultron is Out!

Yes, it’s out.

……

I can’t see it yet though. 😦

See this is a little problem I have. My parents have to see it first, (so as to make sure it’s ‘safe’ for me and my brother to watch).

I NEED TO SEE THIS MOVIE.

Characters I’m looking forward to seeing:

Iron Man – But, who isn’t?

Thor – Maybe Loki’ll be in this one? I mean, he’ll want his scepter back, right? Oh, and Thor’s cool too. 😉

Cap – He’s just an all-around great guy. Can’t wait!

And TWO new characters!!!

Scarlet Witch – So I looked her up on Wikipedia and she really is like some type of witch. ??? That should be interesting…

And of course…

Quicksilver – I have a feeling he is gonna be really cool.

I am super excited to see how these two play out! Cause, I mean, they actually have superpowers. Sure Tony has his suit and he’s a genious and all, and Cap is genetically modified and he has a shield made of the rarest substance on earth (possibly in the world, but don’t quote me on that), and Hulk is… Thor… Well it’s just different, ok?!

Anyway, like I said, gotta wait… 😦

I’ll be in the corner, waiting…waiting…
