Friday in Review: Marvel Movies Ranked

Hey! So I haven't written a review in a while! I'm working on a review of Ready Player One but with Infinity Wars coming out this week

(by the time I post this it will have already come out) I thought I would do something in honor of the Marvel movies. These are the Marvel movies ranked from my favorites to my least favorites. But truthfully, I love all the characters that are in these movies. Some of these movies may not be my all time favorites or ones that I would watch over and over again, but I love every character, every hero, every antihero, every villain. They all brought this universe to life and did something that has never done before. Not even Star Wars is this big. Marvel and its Avengers franchise has surpassed even Star Wars! It's truly something incredible and like nothing that has ever been done before, tying movies together one after another, setting up an entire world where all these characters live side by side and then smashing them all into one giant movie? It's just... it blows my mind, as a creator and as a storyteller and as a viewer. I'm not sure anything like this will ever happen again. Not to the extent and vastness of Infinity Wars. This movie has been set up for years! Since Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk came out... These actors have stuck with the movies, with us, the fans, for so many years and it's just amazing to think about.

Loved (in no particular order):

  • Thor 
  • Thor: The Dark World 
  •  Iron Man 3
  • Avengers: Age of Ultron
  • Avengers 
  • Black Panther 
  • Ant-Man 
  • Guardians of the Galaxy 
  • Captain America: Winter Soldier 
  • Captain America: The First Avenger  
  • The Fantastic Four 
  • Fantastic Four: Silver Surfer
  • Ghost Rider
Liked (in no particular order): 
  • Iron Man 
  • Iron Man 2
  • Captain America: Civil War 
  • Thor Ragnarok 
  • Doctor Strange 
Eh (in no particular order):
  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 
  • Incredible Hulk 
  • Spider-Man: Homecoming
I know a lot of people have raved about Spider-Man: Homecoming. I'm glad you guys enjoyed it and love the new Spider-Man, and yes, he does resemble the comic book Spider-Man more than the others but... I'm afraid the movie was sorely lacking. To me anyways. It was dull and boring and had no stakes at all. Plus I'm a real freak about Peter Parker being with either Mary Jane or Gwen Stacy, and they must look like the comic book versions! And he must have a best friend named Harry and all that... I commend Marvel for thinking outside the box and for giving Peter a new story and new friends but... I'm afraid Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield (only the first Amazing Spider-Man movie, not the second because that one was lacking in story too) will always be my favorite Spider-Mans...

As for Guardians Vol. 2 I found it lacking in story too... I love funny. I love comedic elements in movies, but that movie was too funny, to a ridiculous degree. I thought that the first Guardians had a perfect blend of funny and serious and the characters were very well done and complex. It felt like they undid everything they had done with the characters in this second movie. Ego wasn't a great bad guy and am I the only one who is annoyed with that Mantis girl? Drax was so inappropriate it was cringey and not even funny. The only parts I enjoyed were Gamora and Nebula scenes and the Yondu character development. The climax between Peter Quill and his dad was pretty good too. Plus, I mean baby Groot is just adorable!!

The Incredible Hulk? It's in the "eh" section out of default. I never saw it so I can't really judge it in general. And I know Ghost Rider and the two "old" Fantastic Fours aren't part of the Marvel phases, they were pre-Marvel franchise, but I love them. Ghost Rider is probably one of my all time favorite Marvel movies and one of the first Marvel movies I ever saw was the two Fantastic Four movies. They'll always be special to me and always be some of my favorites out of all of them. 

So yeah, there you have it. My loved, my liked and my eh Marvel movies. What are some of your favorites? Which ones did you not really like? Have a great weekend everyone and please! No Infinity War spoilers!!

Happy New Years!!

Happy New Years everyone! 2019 is officially here! Some parts of last year felt like they went by so slowly while other parts feel like they were a blur. But overall, 2018 was a good year and I have a feeling 2019 will be a good year too. 2019 is a new season of life for me and others and I'm so excited to see what God has planned for myself, friends and family.

I know I've already posted my goals for 2019 but there are a few more I want to add. Since writing the Looking Forward to 2019 post, I had a few epiphanies that I think are important.

First of all, one of the authors I follow on Instagram wrote a post today about the difference between dreams and goals. Goals are achievable. They can be accomplished. Dreams can be too, but sometimes certain dreams are out of our control and when we fail to accomplish that dream, we fail. She said how she really wanted to sell a book in 2019. To pitch a book to her agent and get it out there. But that's not a goal. That's a drea…

January 2019 Wrap-Up

Wow! The first month of the year is nearly over! I can't believe it's almost already February. Just one more month and it'll be my birthday!

With the end of January, I'm really starting to think about what I want to do this year, mostly concerning this blog and my writing and stuff. I want to change some things blogger-wise and grow my audience, though I'm still trying to brainstorm and figure out the best ways to do that. There are just a lot of thoughts and ideas floating around in my head right now that are hard to organize and put down on paper (or type out on keyboard), but I'm sure with all these ideas and thoughts, there will come lots more blog posts. So instead of trying to organize my messy thoughts right now, I think I'll just do my wrap-up same as usual.

January Writing: This month's writing has been good. December was a hard month for me. I was super burnt out and blocked in everything I did. Writing three different versions of my Peter Pan …

Friday in Review: Fictional Vacation/Would you Rather

Happy Friday! So, they awesome Lily Cat tagged me in this fictional vacation/would you rather challenge and I am so excited to do this. It sounds so fun!

Alright so here's the deal:

~ Include the graphic Madeline made.
~ Answer the Questions 
~ Tag some other people if you feel so inclined
Let's jump right into this! 
Would you rather... 
Train with demigods for the summer at Camp Halfblood OR attend Hogwarts to learn some spells for a semester?
How is this even a question? ;) Camp Halfblood of course! I adore the Percy Jackson series, so I would do just about anything to be a halfblood for the Summer. The real question is, who would my parent be?? My enneagram four side who loves being special and different wants me to be a kid of one of the big three... maybe Hades just to make myself extra special and unique from everyone else ;) But most likely I'd end up being like a Posiedon kid... or if we're being real probably Apollo cuz I'm a writer and all that, even though …
