Movie Magic Monday : Superhero flicks

Hey, so it’s been a while since my last Movie Magic post. I’m doing this series every fortnight now as I feel that it’ll give me enough chance to watch a variety of films and plan and edit my posts.

The theme I settled on for this post was superheroes, I know it is a very broad theme that could contain lots of different films but I decided on it as superhero films are some of my favourites to be honest. I’m going to try choose a selection of films that are a little different as I feel like there are lots of films to explore that can come under this description.

Most of these films I had seen before but I’d re-watched this week as it was just the sort of films I was in the mood for. I like changing it up with some films that are already favourites whilst adding in some new ones I haven’t seen before as I feel it gives an extra level of excitement (well for me anyway).

The Dark Knight (2008)

I think it’s the best Batman film to be honest. Christian Bale is amazing as Batman and Heath Ledger was an epic Joker, it still creeps me out to this day when I watch it. This film gives me goosebumps and it’s one that I could watch over and over whilst still being mesmerised. There’s nothing I don’t love about this film. An absolute must watch if you haven’t already.

Kick Ass (2010)

Still a favourite of mine. I don’t even know what it is about this film that I love so much. The whole ordinary people trying to be super heroes is so fun and I just think all of the characters are amazing. The scene in the car whilst they’re bobbing to Gnarles Barkley’s ‘Crazy’ just gets me every time as well.

Captain America : The Winter Solider (2014)

Can’t resist me a bit of Chris Evans (especially as Captain America), he is such a sweetie though and he’s just a really good guy. I loved this film I have to say, was very action packed and did have some humour. Bucky pulls at my heart strings as well, the whole film just has me praying he will remember Cap. Black Widow is such a bad ass female as well so I’m super there for that. I’m a big fan of the Marvel movies anyway but I just really love the Captain America films.

Super (2010)

I don’t really know what I thought of this film. It was kind of depressing and super violent. A lot of this film made me uncomfortable as well (there was one particular scene that made me feel so uncomfortable and made me want to look away). Wouldn’t really recommend this, it was decent and maybe others really enjoyed it but it wasn’t for me. It was one of those films that just didn’t do a lot for me and kind of left a sour taste in my mouth after.

Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

I didn’t see this film for ages after it first came out but as soon as I did I absolutely loved it. The music is amazing and is something that adds so much to the film. I love the characters and there is just the right amount of humour and action which makes it an exciting film that leaves you wanting more. I definitely recommend this if you haven’t seen it already (or if you fancy seeing Chris Pratt topless). Have to say I did really enjoy the sequel also but the first one is still my favourite.

Deadpool (2016)

What’s not to love about this film? Ryan Reynolds, swearing and a fuck load of humour. Such a great film, lots of laughs in this one. So many great characters in this film, it’s so different to the classic superhero film.. guess it’s more of an anti- hero film sort of but all in all it’s definitely worth watching if you haven’t seen already and there’s a sequel due to come out in 2018.

Chronicle (2012)

I feel so bad that I didn’t really like this one, it’s one of my boyfriend’s favourites and I know he wanted me to like it so bad but it just wasn’t really my cup of tea. I thought the way it was filmed was brilliant and it was visually appealing (it’s filmed all from a handheld camera/ occasionally CCTV) and I love the idea of what ordinary people would be like with powers but can’t say I’d ever re-watch it (but never say never I guess). It had a good story line but just wasn’t really for me.

Hope you enjoyed reading this post, would love to know what you thought and if you have seen any of these films. What do you think about the superhero genre?

 

 

Hope you are all having a fabulous Monday.

    I’m surprised that i found a few I haven’t seen, like chronicle, kickass or super! The others are amazing though. I agree that Christian Bale is the best batman šŸ˜€

      Omg no way, you need to watch Kick ass! It was my favourite film for so long. There’s just something about him that’s so great and Michael Caine as Alfred just get me in the feels hehe

    This was a good post as I love superhero films too. I surprisingly hasn’t several of these. The Winter Solider was the best Captain America movie that they’ve made. Guardians of the Galaxy is one of my favorite movies of all time. Honestly, I didn’t think there is anything not to like about that movie.
    Now I’ll say the unpopular thing…I prefer Ben Affleck as Batman. Sorry! I never was able to get into The Dark trilogy (to my brother and many other’s dismay). And I love Batman. Great post!

      Yay, they’re some of my favourite films for sure – I just can’t help myself. Me too, I just love everything about the movie (especially Rocket – the bit about the arm gets me everytime).
      It’s okay, it’s good to be different – I feel like he may grow on me in the next movies so will just wait to see. I wasn’t massively into Batman Begins but I really liked the other too. Thank you so much xx

    Love all of these films! Especially the Marvel ones, I’m a sucker for those. Especially for those that have Bucky in them (even though I’m not the biggest fan of Civil War). I just really love the humour paired with the amazing action scenes you get! S. xx

      I know a lot of people weren’t big on Civil War, it was a bit of a weird movie (I did love Spiderman and Ant-Man in it though). Yeah, it’s not too serious and the humour is so well timed xx

    Deadpool is definitely super entertaining. I laughed so much watching that movie. xx

    Love reading a good movie list, love it even more when I find a few I haven’t seen, super and chronicle now added to the list. Can we all just take a moment to appreciate Chris Pratt whilst we are here. šŸ˜

      It’s such a good film, it’s hilarious and doesn’t take itself too seriously at all. I’ve been a big fan for years, watching a lot with my dad and brother x
