Infinity War could have been a mess, but it managed to pull off the colossal achievement of not only balancing its bloated cast but also delivering a funny, dramatic, thrilling and heartbreaking experience. It’s simply a true cinematic event and I’ve no idea how Avengers 4 can top it.
2. Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
The first Guardians movie is so good it breaks the bounds of its franchise and is just a fantastic cosmic adventure that anyone can enjoy. The cast is full of memorable characters, the humor is pretty much spot-on and the soundtrack is phenomenal. A genuine sci-fi action/adventure classic.
1. The Avengers (2012)
But the most definitive MCU movie of them all has to be The Avengers. The script is just one iconic line after the other, all the cast bring their a-game and it’s just incredibly well put together. No other entry in the franchise captures that childhood thrill of mixing all your action figures together quite like this one.
