‘Ello! How are you? I hope you have had a great week thus far! I didn’t have a lot of time today, so I decided it would be fun to talk about my top 3 favorite Superhero movies. We are going 3-1 here. So let us jump right in. There will some spoilers for these movies, so caution!
NUMBER 3: Captain America: The Winter Soldier
I really like Marvel, so it is no secret that Marvel movies will be some of my favorite all-time superhero flicks. Captain America, is one of my favorite Marvel superheroes, and I absolutely love his journey through this movie.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier has some of the best action sequences in a Marvel movie while balancing mystery and excellent character development. The whole idea of his best friend being a mind-controlled villain is a fantastic one. Also, Bucky’s metal arm is pretty sweet. When Cap says: “‘cuz I’m with you till the end of the line,” after being beaten badly, I am sure it literally pierces my heart.
Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff has some of her finest moments in this movie. The only reason this isn’t higher is that I simply like other superhero movies better, oh, and the German scientist who was supposed to be dead, but actually alive and communicating through the old computer was… interesting to say the least.
Number 2: Spiderman Into the Spider-Verse
Yes, and an animated “Marvel movie” made it higher on my list than a live-action one. This is partly because Spider-Verse had some of the coolest animation I have ever seen! Spiderman is also my very favorite Marvel superhero. Honestly, I wish I could have those powers. Spider-Verse is super entertaining. Being PG, there is less content to navigate, which is always a plus. I did a review of this movie HERE.
This movie had an amazing set of characters and a spectacular origin story. It can get pretty intense and emotional (with the deaths especially), while somehow maintaining to be humorous (even laugh out loud) at times. We all know I love humor too. Miles was such a relatable lead character, and Peter B. Parker (my favorite) was a hilarious mentor figure while still navigating his own internal problems. All the characters are loveable.
I just had a really fun time with this movie. It makes the audience feel like they are superheroes. The camera follows right with the action. The voice talent is really amazing.
Number 1: The Dark Knight
All-in-all I may be a bigger Marvel than DC fan, but shockingly, my all-time favorite superhero movie is the Dark Knight. I am a big enthusiast of Batman, and Christian Bale is an amazing actor. The stuff DC is doing now is pretty sad, but the Nolan trilogy practically holds DC’s cinematic reputation together for me.
The second movie in this Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight, has one of the best villains in cinematic history, and it is a shame Heath Ledger did not live to see the results of his work. The Joker is an insane, threatening character who thinks of some ingenious plans to try and prove that anyone can become corrupted. He challenged Batman’s morals and did not use brute strength, as a lot of other supervillains tend to do.
This movie is quite a masterpiece. Batman and others are forced to make extremely difficult decisions either for right or wrong and are not saved from the choice (which is excellent storytelling by the way. I hate when the hero gets away with not having to choose). I love when two boats, one with citizens and one with prisoners, have to choose whether or not to blow each other up to save themselves. Bruce Wayne doubts himself but is willing to sacrifice himself and his reputation in the end.
