Official MCU film ranking thread--AND THE WINNER IS...
« on: November 26, 2022, 12:53:40 AM »
Alright, here we go!

In this thread, we rank all MCU phase 1 through MCU phase 3 films, from Iron Man to Endgame (well, technically, Far From Home)

Note:  We will NOT rank MCU phase 4 films (yet).  We will not rank other Marvel films.

We will rank all the movies, so rank 'em all!  I will count down all the movies in order, and they will be taken from lists of anyone who wants to send me theirs via PM. Do not post them on the forum here. Send them to me via PM.  I will take all of the lists and come up with the cumulative list and do the countdown from 23 to 1.

The rules:
-Movies must be listed from 23 to 1 in order (in reverse order), with no ties.  No having two or three movies tied for rank #2 or anything like that.  Any such lists will be disregarded.  DO NOT list your movies with the points total. List them in your order (I will figure out the points on my end).
-Any list submitted with the movies not numbered will be ignored.
-Anyone wanting to submit a list must do so by the end of day, Friday, December 9.  I will then begin the countdown shortly thereafter.
-The list will be tallied numerically in a simple way. On each list, whatever show is at number 1 gets 23 points, number 2 gets 22 points, number 3 gets 21 points, etc.
-PROOFREAD YOUR LISTS BEFORE SENDING THEM.  Any list with the same movie mentioned twice will be not be counted.

Feel free to post in this thread as well that you have PM'd me, if for no other reason than to bump this back up for others who may want to participate who may not have seen the thread yet.

This ranking engine link below works great if you have too much difficulty making one on your own. You can input all of the shows you want, and then you pick your favorite of every 1 on 1 matchup and then it spits out your list.

Iron Man
The Incredible Hulk
Iron Man 2
Thor
Captain America: The First Avenger
The Avengers
Iron Man 3

Sent my singer list in too soon. So I'll be doing a few variations of my list between now and December 5th or so and then see which one feels right and send that one in.

Interestingly, with 3 lists in already (including mine), I am seeing a clear top 5 emerge that I think will probably hold up throughout (although not sure of the final ordering).  Likewise, a pretty clear bottom 5.

Sent my ranking. One thing to note, I don't hate any movie in the 23 long list. Even my least favorite movie that is ranked 23 is at least a 7.5/10. Still entertaining overall.

I will have to do a rewatch as I feel my top 10 have changed a lot since the last time I ranked them.

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

We have a clear favorite running away with last place.

Also, anyone who hyphenates Ant Man or Spider Man will have their list disregarded and burned with fire.

Yeah, that's the correct spelling of those two.  Similar to X-Men.

Did a third ranking today. Top 5 are solid. Bottom 2 are solid. Rest seem to shift, some considerably. I'll keep doing these every few days and then send what seems like the best representation.


THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!

I have no doubt my list will appear ďweirdĒ to some, but we all have our preferences. There are some flavors of the MCU that I absolutely love and some I donít care for much. So regardless of how popular or highly-regarded a certain film is among the fans, if I donít care about the character(s) then itís not going to rank high.

As each person sends theirs to me, after I input it, I have been sending a "received" message back that quotes the original list so that I don't have to deal with a slew of PM's once the rankings start asking for lists to be sent back for those who didn't keep theirs.  :lol  Guys, let me know if any of you didn't get the response back.

15 lists in.  The last few definitely had some anomalies that shook some things up near both the top and bottom.  Anyone else who is thinking of playing, get those lists in!

List sent.

It was tougher than I thought. I hated my first list, so I did it twice and the second list I was much happier with, so I sent that as is.

Worked mine into tier lists first.

6 Great Movies (phase 4 adds 1)
9 Good Movies (phase 4 adds 3)
5 Solid Entries (phase 4 adds 2)
3 Less than Average (phase 4 adds 1).

I honestly don't think there has been a outright bad MCU film yet.

I agree.  Even the worst MCU movie is better than the bulk of the DCU movies.

Agreed. Even #23 on my list is still a movie I would rewatch and enjoy.

Yup. 23 and 22 were easy for me, but I can still enjoy them. And they would both rank above a few of the phase 4 movies.

I did my rankings like 6 times. First 6 or 7 were always the same and my bottom 2 were always the same. And oddly my number 10 was always the same. The rest switched around a lot so I just put together what seemed to be close enough. I was never good at rankings so a movie being 20 instead of 14 probably isn't a huge indicator for me.

There is one phase 4 movie that challenges my #23 for the bottom spot - but I'd really have to watch that movie again though before deciding which is the worst.
