I think the original Iron Man is still the best thing the MCU has ever put out. It feels like a real movie made by a few talented people, not some large, calculated, corporate undertaking.
I agree. The only MCU movie I LOVED. The rest of the movies seem to be OK, some of them more than OK, but there is a huge decline of effects - the last 2 movies I have seen (Guardians 2 and Ragnarok) had absolutely horrible looking effects. The Black Panther trailer looks to be the worst yet, I honestly hope that the scenes in the trailers are just work in progress, but a combination of live actors with a early 2000s video game backgrounds just looks awful.
I miss the wonderful merge of practical and CGI effects of Iron Man 😦
