HERE I COME TO SAVE THE DAY!!
Being the creatively bankrupt individual that I am, I often look for inspiration for these topics from what’s coming up in the theatres, what’s going on in my life, etc etc.
So this week, with “The Avengers” panel being the highlight of my
weekend month, I figured what better topic to “Toss Out” than “What’s your favorite Superhero movie”?
Superhero movies have become a genre unto themselves… They’ve even begun to spawn subgenres. There are more than a handful of movies now about ordinary people donning the tights and fighting crime with no particular powers or qualifications. “Super”, “Kick Ass”, “Defendor”, etc… You don’t even HAVE to have super powers or a billion dollars worth of high-tech equipment anymore in order to fight crime! (Or try to fight crime).
I’d have never thought this would be the state of affairs back in 1989 when Tim Burton brought “Batman” to the big screen. It was that movie, and Christopher Reeve as Superman, and that was it. (Those were the only superhero movies worth anything at least). Now, major superhero flicks are released constantly. This year alone brought us four major ones, and NEXT year brings us “The Avengers” “Batman: We’re Recycling the Last Title Again” and “Spider-Man: The Reboot”.
In fear of this turning into a “Dark Knight” thread, feel free to discuss your LEAST favorite superhero movies, as well. If you thought it was a stinker, go ahead, let’s toss those into the mix as well.
So let’s hear it folks! “Iron Man”? “Spider-Man 2”? “Batman”? What’s YOUR favorite Superhero movie??
