Happy Tuesday Novas! I posted a review for Thor: Ragnarok on Sunday and that got me thinking about my favorite Superhero movies of all time! Since there are plenty of crime fighting movies to go around, this will be a 3 part series. This week I will rank my top Superheor movies in the past 5 years. Next week I will rank my top Superhero movies from my childhood and the week after that I will rank my top superhero movies of all time! Let’s jump straight into my rankings from least favorite to favorite (note anything that doesn’t make the list is not in my top 5!)
The Dark Knight Rises – The Dark Knight comes towards the bottom of my list because well for 1 I’m not a Batman fan at all. I was actually forced to watch this movie when I was at my friends house when it released on DvD. What I really loved about this movie wasn’t the DArk Knight himself,but the villain Bane! Bane was amazing,. Convincing and he really made the movie. If you haven’t read any of my other posts regarding villains, I’m more of a villain type of girl!
Thor: The Darkworld– I really loveee Loki and Those the Darkworld only enhanced that love for Tom Hiddleson’s character. Don’t ask me the plot because I don’t really remember, I just remember Loki made sacrifices due to the personal issue that both he and Thor were facing.
The Lego Movie – EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!!!! Who says heros have to have superpowers, cool gadgets or be a mega ba-zillionaire? The Lego movie gave our small, everyman a voice and a chance to save the world, albeit the Lego World, but still. This movie was amazing and should be how we everyday people try to live and be heroes in our lives every day!
Thor: Ragnarok – This recent Thor movie inspired the topic for today’s post. I really love the movie and you can read my thoughts and review of the movie by clicking here!
The Avengers – The original Avengers movie is my absolute favorite! My favorite superhero of all time is Ironman so meshing him together with Marvel’s best and having Robert Downey Jr. take the lead really drew me in. I liked the banter and the interaction between each of the heroes.
Wonder Woman – To preference my reasoning for selecting Wonder Woman with Gal Gadot as my favorite superhero movie in the past 5 years, I have to tell you that I was NEVER a Wonder Woman fan. The previews for Wonder Woman this year have been amazing and I was prepared to set my biases aside and watch, in theaters. This movie was so well done to me, so much so that I was instantly turned into a Wonder Woman fan! I can’t say enough about how great the movie, direction and acting was in Wonder Woman, so I will just stop here. It’s amazing and if you haven’t seen it, GO WATCH IT!
Notable Mentions that I haven’t seen: Logan, Guardians of the Galaxy, Spiderman Homecoming, Justice League, TMNT and TMNT 2.
