    ★★★½

    This...wasn't as good as I remember it being? It was fun, but not nearly as engaging this time around. Maybe it's because, by and large, we've all grown to love "fun Thor," and this isn't there quite yet. Same with Loki. A lot of the personalities here aren't nearly as fleshed out as what we get (compared to Tony, who is just A+ from day one). But the mythic element is a blast, and I'm glad they went "cosmic" so quickly. I hate seeing GOTG labeled as the entrance into "cosmic MCU," when this is as otherworldly as you can get.

    ★★★★

    One of the few MCU films I've never seen all the way through. I can't believe I'm rating it a 4, alongside the original Iron Man, but whereas IM1 really set the whole MCU up, this showed how fun the movies can be. Overly-sexualized Romanoff aside, there isn't a lot I didn't enjoy about this one. Again- Don Cheadle is the man. Terrence Howard would have ruined this movie. It was good seeing a bit of Tony's history as well-…

    What a fun movie. Baron Zemo needs more screentime. Humor is top-notch. I'm so tired of the incessant MCU hatred. Unabashedly love these films.

    ★★★★

    Starting my rewatch of the MCU films. The majority of these I've only seen once. Maybe twice? Either way, starting off with a bang. Love the way they start Tony's redemptive arc (pun intended) without it being...rushed. Knowing where it ends (as of now), you really do see him progressively change. It feels earned, not rushed.

    That said, I can't believe they planned on Terrence Howard sticking around for more films. Dude is baaaaaaaaaad as Rhodey. Don Cheadle is where it's at.
