Bryan’s MCU Review


I love comic book movies.


I love them all, bad, good, and all the ones in between.  But, no matter how much I love them, I’m totally willing to criticize the hell out of them.  In my opinion the best superhero film of all time is hands down, Superman 1978. Even with that ridiculous ending.  Every movie from there on out is just chasing their coat tails. One franchise out there has been doing a pretty damn good job chasing.  Not all have been fantastic, none have been terrible, and I can proudly say I’ve seen, own, each and every one of them. I’m of course talking about the Marvel Cinematic Universe!


Like many of the boys and girls out there, I’m super excited for the upcoming Infinity Wars, and watched all the movies, all over again, to prepare.  As I watched, I found I enjoyed some more than I remembered, some less, and one that I was convinced was a great film but realized I was wrong. So here we go!  My review of each and every MCU movie released so far!


A warning before I dive in, for those of you who don’t listen to our show, I’m way more of a DC guy than Marvel.  If my opinions seem way off base and pisses you off, just remember, I’m a crazy person who enjoys all the DC movies.  Though, I really do love these movies and I’m excited for Infinity Wars this weekend.

Episode #230 – Thor: Ragnarok

This week we’re tackling the delightful third entry in the Thor Trilogy and how it relates to the MCU at large. We appreciate Taika Waititi’s influence on the film, its humor, and its overall aesthetic, as well as the choices made by Hemsworth, Blanchett, Hiddleston, and company. Special shout out to Samantha Garrison who gives a stellar breakdown of the film. It’s all here and you won’t want to miss a single moment!
