Monday’s Movie Musings is a new feature here at A Daydreamer’s Thoughts. The idea of this feature is to have all of my movie things occuring in one place. Whether it is a review, article, or something else, this feature will just be all about movies.
This week I am telling you all about my top ten superhero movies
So I don’t read comic books or graphic novels – I’ve read one recently but that doesn’t really mean I read them! – but I do love the movie adaptations. I haven’t watched a LOT of them and really I haven’t read much more than ten so these may not be the BEST out there, they’re just the BEST that I’ve seen!
Avengers Assemble; Oh, I LOVED this movie when I saw it. Like, I wanted to watch it again as SOON as it was over. It was epic in many proportions and if you haven’t seen it, I think you should recitify that straight away.
Iron Man; This film made me a HUGE Robert Downey Jr fan but really it was just Tony Stark that I enjoyed watching. The film is quite simple plot wise and is a lot of special effects but if you like a guy who is cocky but protective, you are sure to like this one!
Batman: The Dark Knight; I actually watched this as my very FIRST Batman movie – I know, terrible, right? – I have now watched Tim Burton’s adaptations and all of Christopher Nolan’s as well but this one is still my favourite. Probably because I ADORE Heath Ledger but also because it just had a dark yet light feel running through it that I just loved!
Thor; I wasn’t sure what to expect when I saw this film but I really liked what I did see! I know some people had issues with the CGI but I just liked the story and got really into the film and that makes it great for me!
The Incredible Hulk; Oh, don’t give me that look! I haven’t seen the original one so I have nothing to compare it to but I did like this film! But, I did prefer Mark Ruffalo playing Hulk in Avengers Assemble, but this film was still great with some epic special effects.
Kick-Ass; I really enjoyed this one. It’s not your typical super-hero film really and yet it really is and I kind of loved it for that. I can’t really say what I liked so much about the film but I do know that I just really loved it.
Scott Pilgrim vs The World; Definitely not your average super-hero movie and I wasn’t sure whether to include it but in his own way, Scott is definitely a super-hero and this film is truly epic and fun and I really enjoyed it!
The Amazing Spider-Man; Yes, the newest adaptation. I have watched the earlier version of this but I don’t know why, I just preferred the new one for some reason. Possibly because it’s fresh in my mind but also because I just thought Andrew Garfield did a brilliant job.
The Losers; One of my absolute favourite films ever. This film is hilarious but full of over-the-top action, epic special effects and cockiness just for the sake of it. It’s a great, fun film that doesn’t even want to take itself seriously and I loved that about it.
Hancock; I think this movie is absolutely hilarious. I love Will Smith and just found myself giggling through a lot of this film. It’s a different way to look at super-hero films and I really like that about it. If you haven’t seen it, you really should!
So there you have it! A list of some great superhero films that I loved! Have you seen any of them? What do you think of my choices? What are some of your favourites?
