Ever since I was able to open my eyes, I’ve watched countless movies from countless of different movie franchises. I’ve watched some of the best movies ever made, and some of the worst movies ever made too. That includes watching the movies made from small and unknown movie franchises to large and famous franchises. Watching movies is like a hobby for me; every weekend, I would watch a brand new movie in the theatre or search for a amazing movie that I have not seen before. With the experience of watching a countless number of movies, I know out of all the movie franchises, Marvel Cinematic Universe is by far the best movie franchise, having the highest movie ratings and the largest Worldwide Box Office and Domestic Box Office. Marvel Cinematic Universe has made 22 movies so far, but only released 17, and those 17 have been amazing to watch. The movies have the highest average on Rotten Tomatoes. The average Rotten Tomatoes is about 83%, which is relatively high considering it is the average. Rotten Tomatoes is a system to determined by people whether the movie is good or bad. It is in percentages, the higher the percentage the better the movie is. The most recent movie, Spider-man Homecoming was especially entertaining to watch. It has 92% Rotten Tomatoes which is outstanding. The movie with the highest rating from Marvel Cinematic Universe of 94% Rotten Tomatoes is Iron Man (Giles).

One does not necessarily have to cluck in disapproval to admit that entertainment is all the things its detractors say it is: fun, effortless, sensational, mindless, formulaic, predictable, and subversive. In fact, one might argue that those are the very reasons so many people love it. At the same time, it is not hard to see why cultural aristocrats in the nineteenth century and intellectuals in the twentieth hated entertainment and why they predicted, as one typical nineteenth century critic railed, that its eventual effect would be to over turn all morality, to poison the springs of domestic happiness, to dissolve the ties of our social order, and to involved our country in ruin." said Neal Gabler, the author of Life in the Movie: How Entertainment Conquered Reality. I agree with this quote, that entertainment is mind numbing and lessen the values of our society. Back in the nineteenth century, entertainment was something that actually stimulated their minds,

(Movie)(Kipling 143) The story took place in Segowlee Cantonment, India in a house’s garden where Darzy the bird and his wife, Chucundra the muskrat, and the deadly Cobras live.

He would would end up coming across three snakes in the large garden and killing them. Cobras, are one of the most dangerous snakes in the world. You must be brave to fight a cobra if you are not you could be snatched up any moment. Nevertheless Rikki-Tikki-Tavi the book and the movie are the same story they have differences such as the Plot, characterization, and the conflict.
In terms of audience impact, it is safe to say that Marvel films are more successful than DC films. In a survey consisting of 30 random people, 16 were pro-Marvel, 8 were in the middle and 6 were pro-DC, in terms of character and ability to relate to them. The important thing to note here is that even if we were to consolidate those in between the two companies into DC, Marvel would still be ahead. According to the 8 people who were
On the 13th of October 1972, a plane which carried Uruguayan union rugby player team from to a match in Chile crashed, in an area in the Andes what was known as ‘The Valley of Tears'. They were stranded for 72 days in the harsh, unfamiliar environments; their story of survival would soon amaze – and disturb – the world, becoming the basis for a documentary named-"I am Alive: Surviving the Andes Plane Crash" (2010) and the movie "Alive" (1993).
Some similarities in the book are, Mason had to sell his horse and also tex’s horse because they needed the money for groceries. Mason said that if they didn't sell the horses then either the horses would starve or mason and tex would. Another similarity is that Tex had to go to the hospital. Tex had to go to the hospital because he got shot when he went to Lem’s friends house. Lem’s friend shot Tex in the hand because Tex was trying to leave. One more similarity was that Mason and Tex were on t.v. They were on t.v because they picked up a hitchhiker, and the hitchhiker had a gun and was trying to shoot mason. If Tex did not take the hitchhiker where he wanted to go then he was going to shoot Mason.
There’s an age old battle amongst us “nerds” over who is better in the comic book world, DC Comics or Marvel Comics? Everyone has their own opinions on who has the better stories and characters, and which comes out with the better movies and shows, but when you break it down each one has different qualities that make it better. Marvel and DC are the most well-known comic creators in the world. These companies kick-started the superhero/supervillain franchise. Marvel comics was founded in October 1939 Timely Comics, by Martin Goodman. The first comic published by Marvel included the first appearance of the Human Torch and Namor the Sub-Mariner (“Marvel Comics”). DC was founded six years earlier in May 1934, as National Allied
I found the play to be far superior in comparison to the original film version as the movie's writing glorified modern American consumerism. A post war financial boom brought a great amount of advertising and promotion, and the movie was overflowing with blatant celebration of products. The presence of sexism as well of the obvious lack of racially diverse main characters, was a big problem for me in my terms of likability of the movie. The play was able to strip itself of the gaudiness/lack of diversity and that left room for a brilliantly crafted sub-plot with a well rounded cast and smartly written script.
B. Relevance: Have any of you seen a Spider-Man movie? What about Thor or Iron Man? Very few of us in this room can say we have not seen an action packed Marvel movie at least once. Since its humble beginnings in 1939, Marvel has revolutionized not only the comic book world, but also set the bar incredibly high for all potential superhero movies. Marvel is completely relevant to the yearly cinema culture we find ourselves in the midst of, and continues to grow in popularity.
The constant battle between our favorites has shown itself common now more than ever. Who do we like better? What do we like better? What is the absolute best? Are these questions necessary? No. But do they keep our lives interesting? Oh yes. In the spring of every year, there always seems to be a new superhero movie that debuts and leaves us on the edge of our seats, waiting for the next one. This year, we are being blessed with two movies, from two separate corporations, Marvel and DC; which leaves us with the question… Who did it better?
Beginning at a very young age in our lives, the film industry influences the way in which each individual interprets the actions that are taken by a character in a film. The constant portrayal of what characteristics would best fit with defining what it is to be a hero, seem to focus mainly on masculine traits. The desirable traits that are illustrated in the majority of the films are being independent, strong, and most importantly a male. However, the film Maleficent (2014), contradicts this idea. This film tells the story of Maleficent (Angelina Jolie), a young woman that has been fooled into believing in true love. When the person she believed was her true love, removes her most precious weapon she is left with great agony and a thirst for
There are many different types of film and film genres. A film can fit into more than one genre, but there are some genres that are more general than others. Some examples of film genre are animated, science fiction, documentary, comedy, and historical fiction. Within each genre, there are also specific characteristics that help support themes and story lines within that genre.

Across a decade worth of films and tv shows, there has been a there has been more than 60 characters that the Marvel Studios universe contains (Menard, 2014, p. 54). There has been a lot of conflict and character development, because of the multiple events that happens in the other movies (ComicBookCast2,2016).

What make a good movie are a good storyline and its ability to make people laugh, to entertain, as well as its ability to utilize its characters fully throughout the movie. Hence, from Thor: Ragnarok experience, in the Marvel universe the best movie is on that the director is left to do his work in the movie. Apparently, this has been evident in other movies such as the Guardian of the Galaxy, Iron man three as well as the first Avenger.
