Best Marvel movie, like some are saying? Nah. Best Thor movie yet? Easily.

Thor Ragnarok is the 226th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the 435th superhero movie of the past 3 years. This one follows Thor in his third standalone feature, this time trying to make his way back home to save it from his evil sister. Oh, and he teams up with the Hulk, because… why not i guess?

The 6th Spider-Man movie in 15 years lead by the third guy to play the character ends up being the best on yet. I honestly didn’t see that one coming.

Spider-Man Homecoming shows us the origin of Spider-Man for the third time, this time skipping over the radioactive spiderbite and Uncle Ben nonsense that has just gotten old at this point. Instead we find Tom Holland as a teenager already settled into his role. We follow him though high school problems and his fight against Michael Keaton, who plays the villain known as the Birdman Vulture.

I aspire to be able to come up with witty insults at the level of those thrown at Rocket in this movie. Trash panda and triangle faced monkey? Pure gold and had me rolling.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 picks up where the first one left off as we rejoin our ragtag team of heroes on more adventures that would make Han Solo proud. During one of these, the group meets Peter Quill’s (Chris Pratt) father (Kurt Russell) and things don’t quite go as planned.

I avoided seeing Dr. Strange in theaters because I was a little tired of superhero origin stories because they are pretty much all the same. Plus this one looked a little too odd and just not very interesting to me. But thanks to Redbox, I gave it a shot now. And it turns out this superhero origin story is… pretty much the same as all the other superhero origin stories.

Doctor Strange is the story of how Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) gets his powers during his recovery from a crippling accident. Did you know if you text and drive you could end up with magical powers? Me either.

Alright, now I’m a little more excited for this movie.  The first trailer they released really just confused me more than anything and didn’t really pump me up for it.  This one is a little more clear. Who exactly is on each side is shown and the reason for the fight is defined a little better, although I’m still a little unsure about that.  I don’t understand how what seems like a little difference of opinion about whether the superheroes should be controlled a little bit turns into a fight where they are trying to kill each other.  It seems like a bit of an overreaction and a stretch, but I’ll save too much talk about that until I see the movie.
