You love nbsp lists nbsp and Look to the Cookie doesn t do enough of them So here are the rankings and reasons for the 23 released nbsp Marvel Cinematic Universe nbsp movies as determined by the entire LTC staff that wears glasses and has dark skin named Germar img border 0 height 285 src https 2 bp blogspot com -Ux-dOmiTh08 XaMt0I-gTjI AAAAAAAAEoU 0PlfL0a4zo4MYT6gNT8251T1kaOaJKj4wCK4BGAYYCw s400 Spider-Man png width 400 23 nbsp Thor nbsp nbsp 5 10 nbsp Thor nbsp is the only movie on the list that is absolutely awful Whenever I hear someone say they liked nbsp Thor I want to punch them in the face very hard I watched this awful film twice because my ex s sister-in-law convinced the family that it was good They all hated it I feel like nbsp Thor nbsp was the most cartoony or comic-y of the movies If you liked this movie you re probably a Thor nbsp fan nbsp or hardcore comic fan or you have absolutely terrible taste or you want to feel my fist nbsp img border 0 height 320 src https 4 bp blogspot com -9YyHNGTydps VanlwZBD5-I AAAAAAAACoI wVY7qEGGStg s320 The Incredible Hulk poster jpg width 216 22 nbsp The Incredible Hulk nbsp 6 5 10 nbsp This film works on just about every level It ranked poorly solely because the field is stacked Bringing in the Abomination for a show-stopping city-smashing finale was genius Seeing hints of the Leader was cool Edward Norton did what he does he killed it Some parts drag but it s about as good as a live-action Hulk film could be outside of nbsp The Avengers 21 nbsp Ant-Man and the Wasp nbsp 6 5 10 nbsp THIS This is what people are talking about when they say that superhero movies aren t good and that they re all the same and that they hate Marvel movies The best scene takes place mid-credits Yes it s sci-fi or fantasy or something but they break all the rules they made It s not very funny And they should have just called it nbsp Ant-Man 2 nbsp 20 nbsp Spider-Man Homecoming nbsp 6 6 10 nbsp Maybe I just hit that age where cutesy teen movies lose their charm If I have this is a sad sad time for me Michael Keaton can do no wrong And Marvel s actually inspired inspiring casting excites me--sexually so many shades of brown This version of Spidey is the most realistic which often means boring Tobey gt Tom gt Andrew19 Captain Marvel 6 7 10 nbsp First of all women are superior to men in every way Secondly I prefer women led movies nbsp Room nbsp starring Captain Marvel herself is the best film of the last five years And nbsp Captain Marvel nbsp is not a very good movie like at all It may be an important movie not on nbsp Black Panther s level or nbsp Wonder Woman s but important But importance does not equal entertainment This should ve been better 18 nbsp Doctor Strange nbsp 6 7 10 nbsp Ok MCU fans stahp it Every next film cannot be their best film This was nbsp a nbsp good nbsp film but mediocre in this collection They ve perfected the genre and now they can crank them out in perpetuity But nbsp Doctor Strange nbsp lacked the team dynamic and history that recent entries contain And while the movie remained active it wasn t the action of Winter Soldier Ultron or Civil War Yes magic but still Dormammu ending nbsp perfect img border 0 height 200 src https 4 bp blogspot com -qiuqQa3aAmg WJM9OzCjnqI AAAAAAAADYs BaWQRsfvWcAXNJPIO7OveRuxjHA6LaeswCK4B s400 doctor-strange-1 jpg width 400 17 nbsp Captain America The Winter Soldier nbsp nbsp nbsp 6 8 10 nbsp Somehow this average flick fooled the world It wasn t nearly as clever as you think nbsp It did however make nbsp Agents of S H I E L D nbsp a much better series The action especially between Cap and Bucky dwarfs the other non-ensemble films This rendition of Falcon fits nicely The Winter Soldier appeared as he might in my dreams and nightmares Oddly I enjoyed it more the second time nbsp Expectations Hype 16 nbsp Ant-Man nbsp nbsp 6 9 10 nbsp I found this film to be the least Marvel-y which is fine Because it wasn t a typical Marvel film it was American film-making 101 and quite predictable If you like mediocre movies you will LOVE this That said they did pull this off well 15 nbsp Iron Man 3 nbsp nbsp 7 10 nbsp Ughhhhh I loved the Mandarin thing but was this really an Iron Man movie I appreciated the Mandarin ruse because we weren t ready for the actual Mandarin yet nbsp I understood the stuff with the kid but really There were two iron men that rarely got to suit-up Annnd the weird fire volcano people Annnnd Pepper became Iron Man and Fire Lady nbsp Annnnnnd how did this get ranked so highly Oh there were lots of suits fighting at the end--that was cool Although it was wise of the writers I never bought RDJ s portrayal of PTSD14 nbsp nbsp Iron Man 2 nbsp nbsp 7 10 nbsp No one liked this film nbsp but me I understand that But hey I have a sense of humor Drunken Iron Man dancing and fighting stolen suits HAMMER and weapon malfunctions the bird the Widow c mon nbsp 13 nbsp nbsp Thor Ragnarok nbsp 7 10 nbsp Comedy is fine but nbsp comedy nbsp in every single line of dialogue for an hour straight is weird This is the first movie EVERRRR where every actor played the role of comic relief Beyond that it was somewhat amazing--beautifully shot amazing performances and CGI excellence They get bonus points for a decent villain an Executioner sighting and a Planet Hulk nod 12 nbsp Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 nbsp 7 10 nbsp They almost did it again Odd that this film isn t more connected to the Avengers part of the universe It was hilarious but almost not a movie The typical conflict and tension nbsp were nbsp non-existent The twists were predictable in a typical way The B-villain and story were laughable But to be fair how do you follow one of the biggest films of all time--the biggest universally loved surprise hit since nbsp The Matrix They nbsp almost nbsp did it 11 nbsp nbsp Avengers Age Of Ultron nbsp nbsp nbsp 7 10 nbsp Not a good film but a HUGE film They attempted to pack too much into one film Ultron and Spader dominated Why do Ultron and later the Vision exist and how not that important really They attempted an attempt at explanations all over this thing Nothing made sense but it was a wild and fun ride nbsp img border 0 height 320 src https 2 bp blogspot com -0f5TBlkd9RE Vann1wbKMmI AAAAAAAACoU oWKAA- 2YKo s320 Thor 2Bdark 2Bworld jpg width 213 10 nbsp Thor The Dark World nbsp nbsp nbsp 7 5 10 nbsp nbsp Yes I appreciate this film more than most of you but that s because I get things and stuff Yes the bad guy was weak unimportant and not memorable but so what They took a big cue from nbsp The nbsp Avengers nbsp and made a film that was fun funny nbsp action-packed and included a beginning middle and end I only hated that it was so short 9 nbsp Captain America The First Avenger nbsp nbsp 7 5 10 nbsp nbsp Surprise motherf cker that s a nbsp Dexter nbsp reference Honestly I can t even get through this now but I remember what it meant then I m not a Captain America fan This film made me care about him They poked fun at him He was a guy and not an Uncle Sam poster except for when he clearly was but that wasn t by choice Most importantly my female non-nerd friends thought this film was dope and not just because the Human Torch starred in it 8 nbsp Spider-Man Far From Home nbsp 7 6 10 nbsp All of that Spidey building in nbsp Captain America The Avengers and that awful first movie finally really paid off This is fun and MCU connective and logical and different from the other twenty something films If you know Mysterio then you knew the story Still the spectacle the possibilities and the performances made it all worthwhile anyway 7 nbsp Avengers Endgame nbsp 7 7 10 nbsp Like its portioned-prequel this is more of an experience than it is a film Unlike nbsp Infinity War this isn t very good It nbsp is nbsp a somewhat perfect--albeit predictable--conclusion But most importantly this IS the biggest film event ever 6 nbsp Iron Man nbsp nbsp nbsp 8 10 nbsp nbsp I never understood why you feel so strongly and positively about this film I re-watched it It s solid and really solidly establishes the entire universe I had far more fun with 2 and maybe even 3 but this is a far superior film 5 nbsp Black Panther nbsp 8 4 10 nbsp Deep I have no jokes here Even though this wasn t the best film or my favorite film it is by far the most important Had it been less predictable with a T Challa that was cool and mysterious like in Civil War it s a 10 10 4 nbsp Captain America Civil War nbsp 8 5 10 nbsp TeamIronMan all day This IS actually Avengers 3 Civil War but it doesn t lose points for that Marvel Studios does an unbelievable job of adding characters combining worlds and progressing their universe It s very well balanced It loses points and me in some of the more verbose scenes The dialogue wasn t too complex just too much The conflict was simple and obvious--show us more of that Spider-man was flawless Black Panther was more flawless nbsp 3 nbsp Avengers nbsp Infinity War nbsp 8 6 10 nbsp No this isn t a movie but it s THE best movie-going experience unless you get down like Pee Wee Herman I saw it 2 5 times because I just needed to see Hulk get dat ass beat one mo time nbsp 2 nbsp nbsp Guardians of the Galaxy nbsp nbsp 9 10 nbsp nbsp People that don t include this in their top two also get punched in the face nbsp 80s references never go over my head because there ain t nbsp no thing nbsp like me but me whore The flick s fairly flawless nbsp 1 nbsp The Avengers nbsp nbsp nbsp 10 10 nbsp nbsp Nailed it nbsp THIS nbsp is what I want to feel every time I pay 50 for popcorn soda and Raisinets What can I say that hasn t been said before The most balanced movie I ve ever seen if you forget that Hawkeye is also sort of an Avenger nbsp img src http feeds feedburner com ff LookToTheCookie d yIl2AUoC8zA border 0 img img src http feeds feedburner com ff LookToTheCookie i eOcGwnTKZrg lFbctlidLKI

of the scores as a grading system e g 7 10 70 C- Here 70 means that the song is better than 70 of all other possible music And don t me There s a lot of awful music I ve written over 300 songs 142 La Toya Jackson You re Gonna Get Rocked 1988 5 0 10100 did NOT want to include her But with the right team she s Janet or Madonna instead of the black sheep 141 La Toya Jackson Bet cha Gonna Need My Lovin 1984 5 05 10That s a staple mid-80s chorus and ummm dance break Okay I don t know why the track is so weak but this is a hit in another universe 140 La Toya Jackson Heart Don t Lie 1984 5 1 10I mean she can t dance but the voice is basically on par with the Jackson ladies 139 The Jacksons Enjoy Yourself 1976 5 9 10Introducing Randy 138 Jermaine Jackson Don t Take it Personal 1989 5 91 10We had to include Jermaine a few times or we d never hear the end of it Gotta go His ninth wife is calling us right now 137 The Jackson 5 Goin Back to Indiana 1971 6 0 10It s not a great song but you d like to believe they stayed grounded And why would kids have babies to go back to Whatevs 136 The Jacksons State of Shock 1984 6 01 10Michael loved partnering with other top talent of the day He did this on Shock but often wondered aloud why anyone would listen to Mick Jagger since he can t sing at all and couldn t hit a pitch with a wall 135 The Jacksons Nothin 1989 6 02 10Not bad considering that Mike quit the group Plus this is 20 years post Ed Sullivan show 134 Michael Jackson Blue Gangsta 2014 6 02 10So a couple of rapper-producers stole this song and released a remix without anyone s permission--a song MJ never wanted released Then he died and Sony released an amazing updated Timbo version And I thank them once a week by email 133 Jermaine Jackson Let s Be Young Tonight 1976 6 02 10How lame do you have to be to admit that Jermaine s your fav Jokes aside the album version is a masterpiece That version is not posted below 132 Jermaine Jackson Do What You Do 1984 6 02 10Jermaine will 1000 see this list and complain on a Middle Eastern show you ve never heard of about how no one respects his talent 131 Marlon Jackson Don t Go 1987 6 02 10Ya know it really was Michael s unique lifestyle that made him appear to be so superior to his siblings Tito and Jermaine are amazing musicians and producers They all sing Janet Jackie and Marlon move like most people think they do after a few drinks We re missing like 10 more great Jackson-family albums 130 Michael Jackson Another Part of Me 1988 6 02 10Captain EO The luckiest people of all time were introduced to this song via a 3D-film at a theme park where Michael saves the universe with dance color and hope And people think Beyonce I ccan i can t di I m laugj u can Beyon hahahahahah hahahahahahah img border 0 height 400

here 128 Michael Jackson You ve Got a Friend 1971 6 03 10The cover is perfect but know this in their first few years the J5 recorded four albums Michael record three solo albums Jermaine recorded two solo albums and Jackie recorded a solo album while they toured constantly 127 Michael Jackson Burn this Disco Out 1979 6 03 10I didn t know this song existed until I was a senior in college What was I DOING You re welcome 126 Janet Jackson Tonight s the Night 1997 6 03 10According to older friends this kinda cover is from The Velvet Rope aka the 1 baby-making album of the late 90s Also gay dudes

Colleen Wing and Bakuto nbsp almost nbsp saved this atrocity And I nbsp almost nbsp worked at Fox Sports Cue that Brandy song And then he improved slightly in nbsp Defenders nbsp and season two of

watching I look forward to its ending followed by frequent character cameos on the other shows It started too fast and left little room to grow Team Arrow was Justice League lite before we got the Legends Team Flash or nbsp Supergirl Pacing And now they may be taking the street justice a little too far OR maybe just far enough 15 14 nbsp Legends of Tomorrow nbsp 6 8 10 nbsp If you don t like this show you don t like smiles fun or good times Remember when nbsp The Avengers nbsp was the best thing to happen to the 10s nbsp DC nbsp decided to do that with 200th of the budget but weekly And

the nose that it s become a distraction 9 10 nbsp Runaways nbsp 7 1 10 nbsp At the episode three mark this show is far better than anything on this list Performances cinematography drama use of powers relationships representation--perfection The problem with being on top is that long tumble down How will they handle powers nbsp or the discovery of the teens discovery How will they handle the budding and realistic romances And is this really the MCU Did it need to be 3 months later show was dope And in the second season so much happened on the way down Season one nbsp was nbsp nbsp too

skip the second season And maybe they do the same arc each season But this is the most pleasant series on the list It s like a 90s Saturday morning cartoon for grown-ups This is the team that every Millennial would join if given the opportunity And I m in love with little Flash-et junior - sue me 6 6 nbsp Jessica Jones nbsp 7 5 10 nbsp Two Js is da nbsp realest nbsp She single-handedly saved nbsp The nbsp Defenders nbsp literally and also from us critics In her debut she overcame the 1 true villain in the MCU twice She also laid out nbsp Luke Cage And maybe she can fly And then nbsp the second season sucked hard The former 1 has dropped like the best beat And the the third season redeemed in a way most shows never can podcastcomingsoon5 5 nbsp Luke Cage nbsp 7 5 10 nbsp Cage one of the strongest characters on the list started weakly and ended weakly But that midsection does work Ummmm Cottonmouth is the King And if you re black this nbsp should nbsp feel like a moment nbsp for us nbsp nbsp because it is And in the nbsp second season a strong show got stronger It s a shame this moment is partially wasted on Mike Colter Bushmaster saved the series and washed the

nbsp It s nothing like other shows on this list They chose to ignore the superhero world setting It works but may have worked better as a standalone Ultimately it was more predictable than most comic
