    Ant-Man- 8/10

    A really nice change of pace for the MCU. Like Deadpool, it breaths fresh life into the genre though this pretty much the G rated version of that film. I'd rank it 5th overall when it comes their film rankings.

    And that is the conclusion of my Pre-Civil War marathon. At 7:00 tomorrow is the main event. Suit vs Soldier ,narcissistic vs noble, Golden Avenger vs First Avenger

    Civil War - 9/10

    It was a great movie, but a Couple gripes I have were the Runtime, the Biggest use of Violence & Zemo. But Spider-Man & Black Panther were fantastic.

    It was all three of those. And somehow made each of them work.

    Civil War - 9/10

    Amazing movie, but there were a couple of things that I thought weren't explained very well.

    This has got to be one of the worst sequels of all time.

    Concussion - 8/10 Really good, but felt like a great deal was left out in order to keep the NFL from crying.

    Captain America: Civil War - Epic/10

    It's every bit as much Captain America 3 as it is Avengers 3 and Iron Man 4, and is easily the single best massive ensemble film ever made. Not just because there's so many cool characters - because every single one of those characters were also given GREAT amounts of development that never once felt stuffed in for the sake of stuffing more people in. All that plus being the perfect blend of an award worthy political thriller ala Winter Soldier AND popcorn action movie AND superhero movie all in one. THIS is what next level writing, directing & acting looks like, and tenfold proof of exactly how great these kinds of "just a comic movie" films can be when the proper talent and time is put in behind the scenes. I won't name other franchises or directors that always seem to hide behind "it's just a summer blockbuster" when their shit movies are ripped apart by audiences & critics alike, but I sure as hell hope ALL of them watched this and got schooled on how good these actually can be with proper effort.

    The only downside of this movie is, due to it being SO good, pretty much every other superhero movie hereafter is really going to struggle to ever match the quality... even other character-specific MCU movies. It's going to be extraordinarily difficult for audiences to see another kickass ensemble like this and then back peddle to being content with just 1 or 2 characters doing their thing for an entire movie.

    Captain America: Civil War - 9/10:

    This is, without a doubt, an excellent film, period. Quite possibly the best Marvel movie, EVER. (No, I'm not joking.) The Avengers? Beaten. The Winter Soldier? Beaten.

    This is more action driven than political like TWS was, which is a welcome change. Don't get me wrong, the political twisting and turning of TWS was solid and made for a GOOD story, but it had it's time in the light and it's time to get back into the action.

    CW does exactly that. They touch on politics, what's right, what's wrong, injustices, but they bring on the action. Hot and heavy.

    That's also the film's problem.

    The film is excellent, the performances are top notch and it feels like all of the characters receive a pretty good amount of screen time, so no one feels completely left out. (Pretty hard balance, but the Russo's pulled it off.) The story is rock solid and unveils MAJOR secrets that'll drop your jaw and leave it on the floor. Even bigger than S.H.I.E.L.D. is actually Hydra.

    There are slow moments, there are talky moments, there are world building moments and then there's action. A lot of it, I might add. You have a bit of downtime, then all of a sudden comes a giant action sequence that goes and goes and goes like a Transformers city destruction sequence. And they even threw in TF1's shaky cam, if the enormous sequences weren't enough.

    It. Is. Relentless. RELENTLESS.

    Because of this, the pacing feels off and the film feels a LOT longer than it should. It's 2.5 hours long but it feels like 3-3.5, honestly. The Russo's took a page out of the Michael Bay playbook and made the fight scenes just an endless barrage of "What the hell is going on?!" and a simple fist fight turns into a 10 minute assault on the senses. This film beats the shit out of it's participants AND the audience.

    Just when you think the film is over and you're coming down from the rush, you're blindsided by another 30 minutes. When you think THAT's over, you're hit with another 20! And finally, when you truly, truly, TRULY believe the film/story is over...there's another friggin' 10 minutes! And all along, it's a relentless, bombastic, explosion filled sensory overload fest.

    It gets to be a little much by the end of the film. People claim the Transformer films are relentless, I kind of understand what they're talking about, I never disagreed there, but CA:CW definitely lives up to what Transformers films have accomplished for years and it feels a bit off in the Marvel universe.

    That's my only real criticism is that the film is utterly relentless. An excellent film, one I'd watch again and again, but damn is it long and the action goes on for waaaaay too long. I mean way too long.

    That said, if you have to see one versus film this year, make it this one and skip Batman V Superman all the livelong day.

    My views on the movie are a lot like everyone else's and it's a nice way to take the characters in a new direction too.

    These were some of the best performances they've ever given. I knew Robert Downey Jr was a fantastic actor, but his performance was so good that you not only felt for Tony, but you even understood his point/side of it. As well as Steve's.

    RDJ just absolutely carried every scene he was in and it was fantastic.

    And the entire cast was excellent so that's saying something.

    I wish Marisa Tomei hadn't been such a throwaway. Shame she didn't get more screen time. One of the funniest scenes of the film.

    Wow,
    unusually attractive Aunt May indeed! I guess they really do come in all shapes and sizes
    . Total surprise, I never would have seen that twist coming. If you think you know everything about this movie before seeing it, think again. So glad they didn't spoil this in the trailers. Absolutely incredible, just mind blowingly good. By far the best on-screen, nay, best representation of that character in any media ever. It's a masterpiece.
