Ranking the Marvel Movies
Same Idea as the Pixar ones - we each ranked the ones we have watched. The average gets the higher score.
29 of them to this count - not counting the terrible Captain America and Fantastic 4 movies that came out in the 90s.
29.The Punisher (The Original)
The only one none of us have watched. My Dolph marathon won't be complete without it.
28. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2)
To be fair there was only one rank with a low score. Trailer looked fairly interesting though.
27. Howard the Duck
Earlier movie doesn't really fit what Marvel does now. I always liked the beginning though.
26. Punisher War Zone
Nice not having to worry about the origin story as was the Jigsaw inclusion.
Sequel was just so bland.
24. Ghost Rider
Could it have been saved without Nicolas Cage? No one will ever know.
23. Blade: Trinity
You can tell when a vampire series has run out of ideas when they bring in Dracula and or Ryan Reynolds.
22. Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
Stupid Galactus the Cloud.
Pretty good for it's time. The alternate ending is funny.
20. The Punisher
Missed out on the Russian joke with Dolph here. I do enjoy Travolta more than others here.
Lots of missed opportunities. The director's cut however was mildly better.
18. Blade II
Okay sequel to feature the future Hell Boy.
17. The Hulk
Too slow though I enjoy Eric Bana and most of the cast.
16. Fantastic 4
Remarkably consistent to us.
15. Spider-Man 3
Not sure how I ranked this the highest as I'm equally disappointed as most people with this.
14. X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Fairly symmetrical here.
13. The Incredible Hulk
How amazing would the Avengers have been with Norton?
12. X-Men Last Stand
Became the Wolverine show at the expense of Professor X and Cyclops.
Great first effort by Rami. William Dafoe steals the show.
I constantly debate Thor verse Captain America in my head.
Even Storm doesn't annoy me in this.
8. Captain America: The First Avenger
Evans was surprisingly good in this role despite Fantastic Four.
7. Spider-Man 2
At times my favorite Super Hero movie. Though the Spider Man no more storyline can get draining on re-watches.
6. The Amazing Spider-Man
Was just as good if not better on a second go.
5. Iron Man 2
This movie gets panned quite a bit and rightfully so. But Downey is all we need to be entertained.
4. X-Men: First Class
Return to form. Kevin Bacon and Fassbender are crazy awesome.
3. Iron Man
The beginning of the Marvel streak of great movies.
2. Marvel's The Avengers
Whedon truly is awesome.
