Not to be a jerk, but just watch em all. I mean, the worst one is Thor: The Dark World, but that's referenced heavily in both Thor: Ragnarok (though that's more in a jokey way) and in Avengers: Endgame.

You could probably skip the Edward Norton Incredible Hulk movie...as a full movie, it's not great...but it has its moments.

Agents of Shield is really good too once you get past the first half season or so, when they had to keep the Winter Soldier twist intact.

I've heard people say that a couple of them were egregiously bad. We have all summer so we'll start by release date and see how it goes.

Thor: the dark word is boring and it’s odd seeing Edward Norton as the Hulk since Mark Ruffalo really made that character into its own thing but I can’t really say any of the MCU films are flat-out “bad.” When I think of bad superhero flicks, Batman vs Superman comes to mind.

Personally, I'd say at the worst a few of them are pretty forgettable, but I've honestly never walked away from any of them thinking, "man, that SUCKED."

That said, I actually really like both Iron Man 2 and Avengers 2, so I'm pretty suspect.

11 Questions with Werner Herzog:

https://film.avclub.com/werner-herzog-n ... 1834677156

2. If you could re-live an event or moment in your own life, what would it be?

WH: Hm. I wouldn’t know, because I’m plowing through life without ever looking back.

AVC: Never?

WH: No, I wouldn’t like to relive any of my moments in my life. We are drawing a blank here.

AVC: Why not?

WH: Because I’m not living in the past, or looking at my past, or looking at myself. I don’t even know the color of my eyes because I do not look at myself in the mirror.

AVC: Really?

WH: Well, I do when I shave, but I do not look into my eyes.

I was able to beat it because I loved it so much I just wouldn't stop playing it and eventually memorized all the patterns in the game. At a friends birthday party in elementary school, they heard I could beat it and wanted me to prove it so I did and they were in awe.

Women wanted me, and men wanted to be me.

I went to visit my best friend at his college dorm room. His roommate and three of his friends were busy getting their asses handed to them by Piston Honda. I laughed at them, and they did the "well, let's see YOU try it." I just pressed reset and entered the code to go straight to Mr Dream, and lost a desicion. Not especially cool, but they demanded I try again, and I 2nd round TKO'd him on the next try. I've never seen people that excited about someone they didn't know playing video games. Calling up friends to report the news. Offering me drugs. Really weird. I ran into his roommate two other times at parties since then, and both times after that it was "Oh horsefeathers, this is that guy I was telling you about! Get the beer bong!"

My friend and I got so good at Mega Man (the original on NES) that we would take turns beating the entire game without dying, with the only challenge being who could do it fastest
