๐Ÿ–– As I work through my Star Trek chronological watch-through, after finishing Enterprise and Discovery (S1-2), I've reached the original series. Wow, this is rough. Especially after Discovery! I'm on episode 3 of TOS and I'm very tempted to skip to the original movies.

Ranking the Marvel Cinematic Universe Movies

With Avengers: Endgame about to happen and serve as a conclusion to the incredibly long story arc around the threat of Thanos, I thought I would celebrate by ranking all the Marvel movies in the MCU up til now.

My goal is to do this is two ways: I want to group them into 4 tiers: First Tier (Amazing), Second Tier (Enjoyed), Third Tier (Okay), Fourth Tier (Reluctant / Disappointed). I also want to actually just rank them within their tiers/the entire order.

Itโ€™s been a long time since I have watched some of these movies, so it might be a bit affected by memory, and at some point I should probably do a watch through of all the movies and rank them at the end of each movie, so it would be more fresh. But for now, here it is:

First Tier

  1. Captain Marvel
  2. Avengers: Infinity War
  3. Spider-Man: Homecoming
  4. Captain America: Civil War

Second Tier

  1. Doctor Strange
  2. Thor: Ragnarok
  3. Black Panther
  4. Ant-Man
  5. The Avengers
  6. Iron Man
  7. Thor
  8. Captain America: The First Avenger
  9. Iron Man 3

Third Tier

  1. Iron Man 2
  2. Avengers: Age of Ultron
  3. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
  4. Thor: The Dark World

Fourth Tier

  1. The Incredible Hulk
  2. Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 1
  3. Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 2

Unranked

  • Ant-Man and The Wasp
  • Avengers: Endgame

I have yet to watch both Ant-Man and the Wasp and Avengers: Endgame. I will update this post after I watch Ant-Man and the Wasp, as well as Avengers: Endgameโ€ฆ my current prediction is that Ant-Man and the Wasp will be in the Second Tier and Avengers: Endgame will be in the First Tier.

How do you rank the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies?

UPDATE: After more consideration, Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 of Guardians of the Galaxy have been swapped putting Vol. 1 above Vol. 2.

One of the most irritating things all the streaming services (Netflix, Hulu, ATV). You know what I watched, don't recommend it to me again. If I've watched every episode available in a show, why have it in a suggestion area? leave it in the catalog to hunt for rewatching.

Iโ€™m pretty excited about adding unofficial HomeKit support to my bed mattress. Right now I can just turn the heater off and on. Next up I think I should be able to add a presence indicator if we are in bed or not.

Really excited that my Mark One pens came in today!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
๐Ÿฟ I donโ€™t understand why everyone seems to hate the new Aladdin movie based on the trailer? I think it looks pretty good. Sure, Genie looks a bit different and might end up being the worst part of the movie. But I think Will Smithโ€™s voice fits well.
I designed new podcast artwork for 30 and Counting. Let me know what you think! I have some ideas of some things I want to record about so hopefully I'll get those recorded and posted in the next couple of weeks.
Just posted a podcast about my 2019 yearly theme : Clarity, and what it means to me, my projects and my podcasts.
๐Ÿ“บ Ash and I watched Fyre Fraud tonight and wow! What a crazy mess of events! This documentary is mind-blowing. If you have Hulu, you definitely need to watch it, it will just completely baffle your mind!

Story-telling and character perspectives in the show "The Affair"

I've been watching the TV show "The Affair" because it has one of my favorite actors and I have to say their story telling approach is so interesting in season one! Every episode is split into two parts, each part is from one of two people's narrative perspective.

The really interesting thing about this perspective shift is that sometimes it covers different events, but sometimes it overlaps the same events that happened in the other part, however in retelling the same event it will have inconsistencies between each person's perspective on how the event happened. Sometimes it's something small like one person or the other started the conversation, or they were chatting in a slightly different room. Other times it is huge inconsistencies like specific things literally never happen in one viewpoint or someone's personality is completely different. For example, the person whose perspective it is, is almost always more docile and the other person is more aggressive. It's really intriguing and makes me wonder if the "truth" of some of these things will ever be revealed or if it will always be a he-said she-said mystery.

So often stories are told in such standard and conventional ways, it really excites me to see stories told in different ways. This tv show is such a great rendition of the classic story-telling tactic of the unreliable narrator.

It's an interesting show and I'm wondering if they are going to change things up in the following seasons or keep the same story-telling approach. If it's the later, will they introduce new perspectives or continue to tell the entire show through these two characters. Only time will tell! Thankfully there are already 4 seasons out so I won't have to wait to find out.

Hahaha! On this day 9 years ago I was on my way back home to Hawaiโ€™i from visiting family in Maryland and I was upset about being surrounded by babies. Itโ€™s funny how your perspective changes 9 years later when the baby is your own.
