Dunkirk - The Cinematic Experience

Wow. I literally came out of Dunkirk high on adrenaline and somewhat exhausted. I’ve never had a film going experience quite like it; tense, impactful and absolutely exhilarating.

It is without a doubt one of the best and most visceral cinematic experiences I’ve ever had.

Ross Bishop Ranks The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU)

So with the release of Spider-Man Homecoming and my absolute love for the Marvel Cinematic Universe I thought I’d try and rank the MCU films…

When I say rank, this is in terms of my favourites, so it’s just my opinion and it may not always be what is technically the best. For example Thor: The Dark World regularly gets cited as one of the worse MCU films, but I quite enjoy it – so will probably rank higher than other lists. Likewise most lists have Guardians of the Galaxy at the top, however I’m not a huge sci-fi fan so again this will be lower than expected.

That said, this is truly a difficult task, as the Marvel Studio movies all tend to range from good to great, with a few truly excellent films. There aren’t really any bad films (except Iron Man 2), and I genuinely like all of them. I think I can rank my top 5 in a definitive order, and my least favourite at the bottom, but the one’s inbetween will be hard and could arguably have an interchangeable order.

Anyway, let’s give this a go…

Spider-Man Homecoming - My Thoughts

Well, this is how you make a Spider-Man movie.
The short review - Spider-Man: Homecoming is great, definitely the best Spidey movie overall and it sits comfortably within the top 5 MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) movies. This is due to the film delivering the truest version of the character on the big screen we’ve seen, together with a truly great coming of age story.
