I feel like I'm the only person who has really worn thin on these movies.  

You're not. I feel in general I've outgrown superhero movies. I stopped watching after the original Avengers, which was a fun movie. But I've just grown tired of all the interconnectivity. And I loved all 3 Ironman movies. But somewhere along the line, maybe when trying to watch Age of Ultron, I started to feel disinterested.

In contrast, I've really enjoyed Supergirl which I feel was a breath of fresh air.

Maybe you just like pretty blond girls, you'll be back when they cast Natalie Portman as (female) Thor and dye her hair blond Tongue


Well, I do like Natalie Portman, but no.  I didn't even have enough interest in Guardians of the Galaxy. Each time I try, I never get very far.

Was never a big comic book guy and that has translated into me barely caring at all about all the superhero movies.  I very much enjoyed Toby McGuire's first two Spiderman movies and of course the Nolan Batmans, but other than those, and seeing a marvel movie here or there, I've not paid much attention.

However, Civil War is on Netflix and even though I've not seen most of the films, I was able to follow along with a lot of it and it kindled in me a desire to see the rest of the films in the 'series' in order.   So, 2017 will be the year of the superhero film for ATB. I will watch them all including the handful I've seen already and rate the films both independently and as a part of the overall series. I'll re-calibrate my ratings based on what becomes the standout 5 star film of the franchiseas I go.  For example, right now Civil War is the peak of the franchise for me, but I won't be using that as the baseline until I get to it at the proper time in the sequence. Thus what constitutes a 5 star marvel film will change as as I update that, other films will move down or up as fitting- this is similar to what I did when watching all the Rocky films.

I will not be paying any attention to the various television series, etc.

Films in the MCU (*indicates previously seen):

Iron Man (2008)*
The Incredible Hulk (2008)
Iron Man 2 (2010)*
Thor (2011)*
Captain America: The First Avenger  (2011)*
The Avengers (2012)*
Iron Man 3 (2013
Thor: Dark World (2013)
Captain America: Winter Soldier (2014)
Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
Age of Ultron (2015)
Ant-Man (2015)
Civil War (2016)*
Doctor Strange (2016)

Should be fun.


I expected step by step reviews of each movie as your progressed.   Bring your own!

He's smarmy, he's kind of a jerk, and I just find him very unlikable overall.

While I don't necessarily agree, I can see why you'd say that. Luckily for you, Uncharted 3 and 4 center quite a bit around his character flaws and what they do both to him and to the people around him. You might find yourself pleasantly surprised by where the whole thing ends up.

There's one sequence that sort of encapsulates this for me.  After stealing a certain artifact, Drake is trying to sneak out of a huge compound while security guards search for him.  He is climbing around on a watchtower, and there's a security guard right above him.  The only way to get past is to reach up, grab the guard, and toss him off the tower to his death.

For some reason, this really bothered me.  Here I am breaking into an auction, stealing an artifact, then tossing random security guards to their death when they look for me.  Yet, Drake supposed to be the good guy here?  The one everyone is rooting for?  The guy who, an hour before, was playing Crash Bandicoot on his couch?  I know it's probably a stupid overreaction, but I actually turned the game off and walked away at that point yesterday.  I don't enjoy playing the bad guy in games, and some of the shit Drake does in the search for what is ultimately his personal fame and fortune is just kinda...distasteful.  It's one thing to gun down Nazi's or cultists hell-bent on destroying the world.  I don't have much issue with that.  But tossing random people off rooftops so you can steal shit?  Not really my thing.  Probably much of the same reason I don't enjoy the GTA games, now that I think about it.

In the game's defense, they do come back later in that sequence and vaguely imply that the guards were hired thugs, but the connection is iffy (at best) and comes way too late.

I haven't decided yet if I want to dive back into DQ 8 or not.  Got a couple long flights coming up, so...maybe
