Captain America: Civil War

This movie has the Avengers legitimately fighting each other. For that reason alone it should be in the top 10. It also shows us Tom Holland as Spiderman for the first time which will always get extra points from me because I love me some spidey. Realistically, the conflict falls a bit short, especially when compared to the comic material but it's still entertaining and fun enough.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

By far the grittiest MCU movie to date, The Winter Soldier's action just feel more impactful than other Marvel movies. It has a real emotional pull with Cap' contemplating whether to do the right thing or to be the perfect soldier. It also has the best scene shot in an elevator in cinema history... just saying.

Avengers: Infinity War

We don't need to speak about more than the snap here. It's shocking, appalling, disgusting, amazing, heinous, horrifying, gargantuan and impressive all at the same time. Some might even argue that it's slightly arousing but we stay away from those people. Whatever your opinion is, you remember where you were when you saw that seen, and that's more than enough to get on this list.

Spiderman: Homecoming

I love Spiderman and I love this movie as well. It really shows just how hard it is to be a teenager and also be a superhero. This movie also has the most relatable plot point in any MCU movie as Peter's crush turns out to be the daughter of The Vulture who's trying to kill him. Happens to all of us.

5

The Avengers

Its weird to watch this back and realize this was the biggest scale anything had ever been at the time. Now having this many heroes in a movie isn't that big deal so it's hard to remember the grandiose feeling of watching this the first time. It also has shawarma. Everyone love shawarma.

6

Black Panther

All the more important now that Chadwick Bosman sadly passed away, Black Panther was as impactful as any film in the MCU in terms of cultural impact. Elevated even more by Kilmonger who's a top tear MCU villain, you've got yourself an excellent movie that will stand the test of time.

7

Avengers: Endgame

I'm not going to lie, When Captain America called Thor's hammer towards him for the first time I peed a little. Then I remembered that I was in a theatre full of people and that wasn't acceptable behavior. Somehow, this movie didn't let us down and lived up to the hype. The only issue is figuring out how to top it.

8

Thor: Ragnarok

In terms of comedy, Thor: Ragnarok comes only behind Guardians of the Galaxy in terms of laughs and that's why it's so high on this list form. Throw in Jeff Goldblum in a role only he could perfect with the spectacular sci-fi vibes and we're left with a top tier Marvel movie.

9

Iron Man

You can argue with me all you want, but the original is almost always the best. The movie that started it all off, Iron Man is still way too much fun to watch. Compared to other Marvel titles now, Iron Man is almost refreshing in it's scale and simplicity. It also has the coolest ending scene in any Marvel movie with Tony coolly announcing, "I am Iron Man". That gets points.

10

Guardians of the Galaxy

Comedy mixed with Sci-Fi will always be my favorite genre combination and there isn't a movie that does it better than Guardians of the Galaxy. You got a talking raccoon, a tree who can only announce his own name and a final showdown that is essentially decided by a dance battle. I will not accept an argument for another MCU film being in the spot.
