The Insane MCU Movie Rankings and Witchcraft Thread

Back when Age of Ultron came out earlier this year, I came up with the brilliant super nerdy idea of collating a bunch of people's rankings of the MCU movies. I then gathered the data and came up with some cool totally useless but weirdly interesting "conclusions" and "observations" of what those lists told us.
For instance, based on the previous data collected after AoU came out:
Number of times Guardians and Winter Soldier hold top 2 spots: 28
Movies with no #1 rankings: Iron Man 2, Thor, Thor 2
Movies with no #11 rankings: Avengers, Iron Man
Of the 4 people who ranked Guardians at #10/#11:
1 person ranked Iron Man 3 (avg rank #5) at #1
1 person ranked Winter Soldier (avg rank#1) at #1
1 person ranked Captain America (avg rank#7) at #1
1 person ranked Ultron at #1 (avg rank#4)
Of the 64 people who ranked Guardians or Winter Soldier as #1:
58 (91%) people ranked Incredible Hulk at #9 or worse
51 (80%) people ranked Iron Man 2 at #9 or worse
Of the 47 people who ranked Winter Soldier as #1:
all but 6 (87%) people ranked Hulk at #9 or worse
33 (70%) people ranked Captain America between #6-#8
Of the 45 people who ranked Incredible Hulk at #11:
24 people ranked Iron Man 2 at #10
only 1 person ranked Thor 2 better than #7
only 2 people ranked Iron Man 2 better than #7
everyone ranked Ultron #6 or higher
everyone ranked Winter Soldier at #6 or higher
Number of people who ranked Iron Man better than Iron Man 2: 86 (90%)
Number of people who ranked Iron Man 2 better than Iron Man 3: 9 (9%)
Number of people who ranked Iron Man better than Iron Man 3: 47(49%)
Of the 9 people who ranked Iron Man 2 better than Iron Man 3:
4 people also ranked Iron Man 2 better than Iron Man
everyone ranked Captain America between #5-#8
no one ranked Winter Soldier between #4-#10
6 people ranked Guardians as #1/#2
on averages, Iron Man 3 was ranked #11
Of the 10 people who ranked Iron Man 2 better than Iron Man:
Thor/Thor 2 were ranked #10/#11 based on averages
on averages, Iron Man ranked the lowest of the Iron Man movies
on averages, Iron Man 3 ranked the highest of the Iron Man movies
Winter Soldier received the most #1 rankings
POINTS-BASED SYSTEM WHERE #1 GETS 10 PTS AND #11 GETS 0 PTS
The biggest gap between 2 consecutive rankings (by total points): 142 (Captain America minus Thor)
Smallest gap between 2 consecutive rankings (by total points): 8 (Guardians minus Avengers)
The gap between Winter Soldier (#1) and Guardians (#2): 125
Points separating the 3 lowest scoring movies: 103 (Thor 2 #9, Iron Man 2 #10, Hulk #11)
Now that Ant-man has come out, won't you all please enable this weird fascination of mine a bit more, so that we may now glean additional insights into this totally pointless but nerdy exercise? My only request is that you have actually seen all 12 movies prior to filling out the survey (looking at YOU, @Raijin Quickfoot) in the interests of statistical purity.
I also invite anyone else with a similar fascination to go ahead and play with the stats as well if you feel so inclined!
