Where do you rank Avengers 2: Age of Ultron amongst the Marvel Cinematic Universe films?
I rank Avengers Age of Ultron as near the top for me. I put it ahead of the first Avengers. I like that movie but it’s pretty thin. Ultron had a lot going on I’ll give you but it was all managed well. I never felt bored or had an issue with pacing. Also loved how the team was handled. Everyone had a role.
I understand where Kevin is coming from with the Fast movies. It’s hard to movie them from the Bro culture they appeal to. Hold on they get better i promise you. Although if you have an issue with physics not working you may not think that at all.
I look at the FF movies as today’s 80s over the top action flicks. They bother are over the top testosterone.
AOU was good for me bUT no where near Marvel’s best. I’d say middle of the road for them.
I was wondering about Ex Machina. I could not get much from the trailers at all. They just confused me. Now I may have to give it a look.
I really AOU. I done get the hate I see from people. I mean it got so bad Joss Whedon had to quit twitter. Do I see the same movie as those people?
For me the Holy Grail of Marvel movies are Cap 2, Avengers, and Guardians. I put Age of Ultron with the second group that contains Iron Man, Cap 1, and Thor 2.
I would put Iron Man in that first group.
