I enjoy the MCU films & highly admire what they pulled off in terms of an interconnected narrative over 20 films & 10 years (Endgame was an exciting end a decade in the making), but I feel their strength is dependent on the whole & don't think any of the individual films is particularly interesting or notable on it's own (because of this, I'm completely baffled by the awards season push Black Panther had, which was just as enjoyable, though by the numbers, as almost every other MCU title is).

In retrospect I find myself gravitating to the more standalone or small scale superhero films/series, like the original Spider-Man trilogy, Watchmen, the Punisher, some of the Fox X-Men films, and Into the Spider-Verse when it comes to films I'm actually interested in adding to my collection.

I'll do you one better : Avengers Infinity War and Endgame were both disappointments to me. I'm no story writer but I noticed way to many plot holes especially in the time travel. In Infinity War almost everyone acts arrogant and stupid wasting almost every chance they got to chop off Thanos's hand/arm. I personally think the Guardians Of The Galaxy ruined it. It was meant to be a serious movie not one filled with slapstick humor. In Endgame we get the highly anticipated sequel and what's the answer? The most cliché plan to bring back everyone : time travel.

I mean... who DOESN'T do time travel these days? I felt that the movie was simply riding on nostalgia and nothing else. I also find the rules of time travel to be unnecessarily convoluted. Maybe it's just me but my sisters were also very disappointed with both films like me. I might be weird but I've also developed "Marvel Fatigue".
I honestly don't care about upcoming movies any more since every Marvel movie feels the same.

@T7Hokage017 Y'know it's not so fun when YOU'RE the older brother and they play pranks on YOU.
I'm assuming you're the younger brother right? If so then that would explain a lot.

@GroundZero012 Here’s a super unpopular opinion: I don’t like Marvel movies in general. I watched Infinity War once and I fell asleep at the climax. I’ve never been a huge fan of live action movies longer than 2 and a half hours, superhero movies specifically. The one acceptations are The Amazing Spider-Man 1 and Black Panther. I could of said the same about Star Wars at some point in my life, but I recently started watching them and they’re pretty good.

@T7Hokage017 I thought so.

@BabyYoshi65 I see where you're coming from. I don't tend to like long movie either unless the story's pretty darn good. I'm starting to dislike Marvel movies in general too. I'm beginning to find them dull and lackluster. It's nice to hear that you're getting into Star Wars. I think it's pretty cool with some of my favorites including Anakin and Obi Wan.

Another unpopular opinion I have is that I don't like Disney. I hate it when they merge with other companies (like Fox). I think they're beginning to be like some sort of parasite killing off the competition slowly and carefully. I hope that other companies don't follow suit. I know people enjoy their movies but I never did and I'm lucky enough to have at least one sisters that doesn't like Disney either.

EDIT : It's pretty ironic but I just finished watching Moana with my little sister. I don't know how I got myself wrapped into that one but I did it for her so... I ended up watching it. I'll admit that it wasn't bad but it's definitely not my thing.

My parents have Disney Plus, and honestly I'm always pretty disappointed in their selection. Most of the movies on it I've already seen, and the ones I haven't seen are often Disney's non-Marvel non-Star Wars live action films, which are...not particularly great. Disney's TV animation has largely been poor as well, with even the best Disney animated series not holding up as well as their temporal peers

I'm far more excited for HBOMax. WB, Turner, and Hanna-Barbara's rich collection of animated series, including the Looney Tunes. Films from visionary directors like Nolan and Eastwood. Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and DC Comics films. Plus HBO and WB's rich live action TV catalogue.

@iKhan I agree. I don't have Disney Plus and I don't intend to either. There's only one show that I'm genuinely interested for and it's The Mandalorian. I waiting for it to release on DVD if ever. I refuse to get it though.
I'm also more interested with WB's movies which are definitely up my alley. I've got HBO as well.
