as far as im concerned, the mcu franchise can take my money for the rest of my life. they do such a good job of having us build intimate and emotional relationships with all 200-sum characters in this universe. building a strong foundation starting with individual groups and characters make the “big picture” stories and movies an indescribable and deeply personal experience. marvel gives us big action sequences and quippy one-liners and i’d be lying if i said i don’t absolutely eat that shit up. these movies are ranked not as much according to how it fits into the entire storyline and its relevance, but more on itself individually, humor, soundtracks, fight sequences, character development exhibited, emotional connections, and overall enjoyability.
yes, all the iron man movies are low and no, i don’t have to explain myself to you
