May the Fourth Be With You!

Yes, it’s that time of year again, May 4th to be specific, where Star Wars fans around the world post various memes, photos, and other Star Wars pictures on social media to celebrate this punny day – May the Fourth.

In the Star Wars movies, there is a phrase used by the heroes, “May the Force be with you.” that they say to each other as a way to wish those around them good luck or to offer them well wishes.  May the Fourth is a fun way to play off of that sentiment. Believe it or not, this pun was actually created way back in 1979, but has only taken the world by storm since the rise of social media.

“Apocryphally, the reference was first used on May 4, 1979, the day Margaret Thatcher took office as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. An online news article from the Danish public broadcaster says her political party, the Conservatives, placed a congratulatory advertisement in The London Evening News, saying “May the Fourth Be with You, Maggie. ” Congratulations.” – Wikipedia

As a lifelong Star Wars fan, I appreciate and celebrate this day; but for me, as you may well know, Star Wars day is everyday!

But for the less casual fans, please join in the revelry and eat some Wookiee Cookies, drink some Yoda Soda, or a Darth Malt. Put on a Star Wars shirt, and watch your favorite Star Wars movie with family and friends, because that’s what this day is really about. Celebrating a fun movie franchise with those that matter the most to you.

May The Fourth Be With You – Always!

Marvel Avengers Re-Watch #14 – Captain America – Civil War

Are you Team Cap or Team Iron Man? The Credulous Nerds break down Captain America: Civil War and it’s impact on the Marvel Avengers Cinematic Universe.

We talk about how the super soldier storyline is again addressed and dropped. We talk about how Tony Stark and Steve Rogers have been fundamentally unable to come to decision and that this movie is a culmination of that.

We also talk about who is the strongest super soldier and how does Steve Rogers stay strong?


The Marvel Avengers Cinematic Universe Rankings

As we’ve been doing our Marvel Avengers Re-Watch series, I’ve been thinking about ranking the individual movies from the Marvel Avengers Cinematic Universe after each film we watch and review on our podcast.

So, for a current list of the films we’ve already reviewed on our podcast, here you go:

  1. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
  2. Captain America: Civil War
  3. Ant-Man
  4. The Avengers: Age of Ultron
  5. Captain America: The First Avenger
  6. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1
  7. Thor
  8. Iron Man
  9. The Avengers
  10. The Incredible Hulk
  11. Iron Man 3
  12. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
  13. Thor: The Dark World
  14. Iron Man 2

Pending Reviews: Dr. Strange, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther

It’s hard to rank the films at the top, as they are all good and depending on my mood at the time, they could switch places with another film. Plus, with some of these films I haven’t seen them in a few months and perhaps years. That’s why I suspect as I watch them and review them, they might start switching places.
