Ranking All 18 MCU Movies. Which is best?

Top18MCUCover
Top18MCU18
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been Hollywood's most successful movie studio since the release of The Avengers and has revolutionised modern filmmaking. After the recent release of Marvel's Black Panther and with the anticipated release of Avengers Infinity War, I have decided to make a king sized special on the MCU movies, ranking all the movies from 18 right through to number 1!   18. "The Incredible Hulk" (2008)   The main reason The Incredible Hulk is in the dreaded 18 th position on my list is because we can all agree that it was forgettable. It may have a been a decent movie at the time but after the casting change no-one remembers Edward Norton as The Hulk. Will we, however see a Mark Ruffalo Hulk movie? That most definitely won't be forgettable! 17. "Iron Man 2" (2010)   Iron Man 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed...

VillainsCover
VillainsTerminator
"A hero is only as great as its villain". Whether you feared them or loved them, or both, these iconic film villains will remain a big part of movie history. Here, I will rank my top 3 villains in film history. As the Clown Prince of Crime would say..."And here we...GO!"    3. The Terminator (The Terminator series) Portrayed by Arnold Schwarzenegger An 80's classic villain! With an iconic soundtrack, The Terminator lay the ground work for future CGI developments. Disguised as a human, The Terminator is a cyborg assassin sent from the year 2029 to kill Sarah Connor. Arnold Schwarzenegger portrays his character perfectly as one of the most feared villains in film history. He is a brutal killing machine that cannot be stopped. If you don't believe me watch the movie yourself! The Terminator is definitely up there as one of film's greatest villains and later becoming one...

My Review & Rating

In my opinion, Star Wars The Last Jedi was without doubt and by a mile the greatest Star Wars movie ever and in my top 3 movies of all time. The movie had everything, drama, comedy as well as all out action. With an intense storyline it was a perfect Star Wars movie.

CALL OF DUTY - WORLD WAR II REVIEW

CODWWIICover
CODWWII1
The kids are loose on Geek Genie as resident teen blogger IzzyLFC gives his verdict on the latest COD! No, we're not talking fish!   After a disappointing run of releases in the series, Call of Duty has returned to claim the crown for shoot em' ups with the release of COD:WWII . Sledgehammer Games, Raven and Activison have taken COD back to its roots with three game modes adding to tons of fun! Here is my take on COD:WWII . Campaign The campaign mode has been truly terrible in every COD after Black Ops 2 ; however, COD:WWII finally delivers a bearable and even enjoyable campaign mode with good characters, missions and plotlines. Each mission is different and offers a balanced level of challenge and fun. The first-person shooter delivers an accurate storyline in the historic battles of WWII. Definitely the best campaign in years! Multiplayer Finally! Feet on...

Thor Ragnarok Review

ThorRagnarok1
ThorRagnorak3
Our resident teen reviewer IzzyLFC gives his verdict on Marvel's latest movie blockbuster, Thor RagnAron.   Thor Ragnarok is without doubt one of the greatest Marvel movies ever made. It was well balanced with action and humour. Director Taika Waititi creates an unexpected but definite masterpiece.                   Synopsis: Thor is on a mission to prevent Ragnorak, the Asgardian apocoloypse alluded to in previous MCU movies such as Avengers 2. He confronts Surtur the fire giant of Musphelheim, who will play a key role at the end of the movei. Loki has taken over Asgard by impersonating Odin. Eventually the rival siblings find Odin only to realise that the All Father's ancient reign over Asgard is at an end.
