    Where would Venom rank amongst the MCU? Do you think it would fit in with the tone established in the MCU?

    The Avengers: Infinity War - 10
    Captain America: Civil War - 10
    The Avengers - 10
    Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2 - 9.5
    Captain America: The Winter Soldier - 9.5
    Doctor Strange - 9.0
    Guardians of the Galaxy - 9.0
    Spider-Man: Homecoming - 9.0
    The Incredible Hulk - 8.5
    Iron Man - 8.5
    The Avengers: Age of Ultron - 8.5
    Thor: Ragnarok - 8.5
    Black Panther - 8.5
    Ant-Man and the Wasp - 8.5
    Iron Man 2 - 8.0
    Ant-Man - 8.0
    Venom - 8.0
    Captain America: The First Avenger - 7.5
    Iron Man 3 - 7.5
    Thor - 7.0
    Thor: The Dark World - 7.0

    No it's not at the top of the list, but I think it's important to note its not at the bottom either. It was a pretty refreshing monster anti-hero flick that I think would be welcome in the MCU since the absence of an Incredible Hulk sequel.

    Came in the thread to see if it was a Venom VS Hulk thread. Disappointed. I think Venom could give the Hulk a run for his money in a toe to toe fight. Venom was very much an MCU tone film. Close to Doctor Strange in its balance of humour with dark themes

    My rankings

    BEST
    Iron Man
    The Avengers: Infinity War
    Guardians of the Galaxy
    Captain America: The Winter Soldier
    The Avengers
    Black Panther

    Captain America: Civil War
    Spider-Man: Homecoming
    Thor: Ragnarok
    Doctor Strange
    Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2
    Venom
    Thor
    Captain America: The First Avenger
    Ant-Man

    Iron Man 3
    Iron Man 2
    The Avengers: Age of Ultron
    Ant-Man and the Wasp

    Thor: The Dark World
    The Incredible Hulk

    WORST

    There isn't a single mcu that isn't better than venom. And did you seriously put it above TFA? Are you kidding me. TFA is a movie, not a series of tonal ups and downs.

    On this I could almost agree with you.

    But for measure.
    IYO.
    That's for "in your opinion", so you know.

    I think that every statement about entertainment (movies, TV, books, music, etc.) on the Internet should be assumed to be in the poster’s opinion only, unless stated otherwise. That can save some hassle.

    You are absolutely right, but trust me, that up there is the exception that confirms the rule.

    Judging by the reviews it's a pretty common opinion.

    Among professional critics, no doubting that.
    More often than not I find myself agreeing with the critical consensus but it is not the be all end all, neither when I am aligned with it nor when I don't.

    The only MCU film that I might rank lower than Venom is Thor: The Dark World, which I found to be really boring and tedious to sit through.

    Venom is a really bad movie, but it's laughable and entertaining.

    Otherwise Venom is very weak next to the MCU.

    Common or not, still an opinion. Personally, yeah Venom is not as good as any MCU film in my estimation. But other people are allowed to feel differently. You need to start taking these things less personally, amigo. You're way too triggered by contrary opinions. Especially in regards to this movie.

    TFA is a series of tonal ups and downs and still a movie. Are you kidding me.

    Out of all the MCU movies, I'd say Venom bears most resemblance to The Incredible Hulk.

    Tastes are quite interesting. I mean, I will put a movie that I thoroughly enjoyed (Venom) over a movie I hated (Infinity War). But again, I don't put my opinion as the definitive opinion, since I also put Ghost Rider 2 over most of the phase 2 and 3 MCU films.

    Thats pretty interesting. The thread is to show that there's probably actually a good amount of people who would agree that the quality of this movie would match up with the precedent of quality the MCU has set. Yourself included. :D

    No this thread shows that aren't enough people that think it would match the mcu average quality to to fill an elevator, let alone "good amount of people".

    There is zero up and down in tfa. It has an Indiana Jones vibe from beginning to end. It never tried to be saving private Ryan. It's very evident what it wanted to be unlike venom where some parts resemble gritty sci-fi thriller and some others resemble an Adam Sandler comedy.

    There's not a single movie in the MCU that Venom is superior to.

    He just did, so start laughing.
    I don't agree with him but nevertheless I understand taste is subjective.
    Life is too short and hard to worry to like the "right" things. You like what you like, period.
    We can discuss anything without trying to ridicule others.

    In MY opinion, I had more fun watching this movie then a couple of the MCU movies. I'm not saying it's necessarily a "better" film. But as far as having a good time? Much so. Probably will watch this a couple of more times. There's some MCU movies I just have no desire to rewatch.

    I'm sorry man, but do you know what respect is at all? All you ever do is come in here and insult people. You're welcome to debate people and share your thoughts, but if all you can do is insult people, then no one wants you here.

    Either learn basic respect for the opinions of others, or go on your merry way somewhere else that is not here. I've been telling you this fairly politely, and you keep doing the same stuff. So I guess I have to be more direct.

    I'd say venom's better than thor the dark world and on par with the incredible hulk. Every other MCU film wipes the floor with it imo
