O.A.P: Dear readers, we interrupt our busy schedule to bring you a very important item from the Sodas and Popcorn crew, which is The Top 10 Super Hero Movies ever made. We are sorry for the inconvenience, but we are sure this will be worth your time. Please enjoy.
First of all, he is the friendly neighbor hero Spiderman. Second of all, Did I hear some ask why we put Spiderman 2 up in this list?!?!?!. Third of all…(Okay, I guess I am over doing this. Getting serious), Choosing between Amazing Spiderman and Spiderman 2 wasn’t so easy. While Amazing Spiderman was more of a narrative, with a lot less action than we expected, it still delivers strongly the content intended, which is the true story behind Spiderman’s origins. This is what The Spiderman trilogy lacks. But in the end, you have got to hand it over to Spiderman 2 for a solid movie in all areas. It really gave life to the famous spiderman saying “with great power comes great responsibility”. Spiderman finds his life all over the place 2 years after putting on the mask, MJ is engaged to someone else, Harry Osbourne still blames him(or should I say spiderman) for his father’s death, his grades are slipping, Daily Bugle keeps calling spiderman a common criminal. Even when all looked like it couldn’t get worse a new villain is born (Dr Octopus). Peter Parker aka spiderman must find the strength to overcome this new evil, save the city of new-york as well as the people he loves. The shows spiderman being human, almost at breaking point but still finding the strength within to save the people of NY. If alone for the train scene, I have to hand it over to Spiderman 2 abeg. – Zubby
V For Vendetta
Evey Hammond: Who…who are you?
V: Who? Who is but the form following the function of what. And what I am, is a man in a mask.
Evey Hammond: I can see that.
V: Of course you can. I’m not questioning your powers of observation, I’m merely remarking on the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.
I know what you are thinking. Is V a Super Hero or a Vigilante? Well, if you have seen the movie and heard (truly listened with all concentration and heard) the monologues (there was no dialogue in my opinion, just V all through) then you will know that one of the most amazing movies to ever hit our theaters and screens is V For Vendetta. I didn’t understand the movie at first but then I watched it over and over again and I must say that the Wachowski Brothers (or well, siblings) outdid themselves. With Shakespearean quotes in every other scene, the Guy Fawkes state of mind, and matrix type moves, V, who was a social experiment gone terribly wrong (or right) and simply delivers a brilliant performance in an attempt to challenge the status quo in the United Kingdom. V for Vendetta is a movie I watch on a monthly basis and I still feel goose bumps when he speaks. It’s a classic which should be used in teaching English Language to literature students (that’s if it isn’t already been used anyways) –Terdoh
You just have to love the opening credit scene. It may not the best super hero movie ever made, but what no other movie can take away from it is the opening credits scene, which is the best part of the movie in my opinion. Watchmen still delivers a stunning film that contains far more substance and intrigue than most comic book screen adaptations. For a comic series which was considered unfilmable, Zack Snyder managed to deliver a stylish movie which was relatively faithful to the comics. Set in an alternate universe in the year 1985, the world is highly unstable as nuclear war is imminent between America and Russia. Superheroes have long been made to hang up their tights thanks to the government-sponsored Keene Act, but that all changes with the death of The Comedian (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), a robust ex-hero commando whose mysterious free fall out a window perks the interest of one of the country’s last remaining vigilantes, Rorschach (Jackie Earle Haley). If you haven’t seen this movie, you really need to check it out and see the director of 300 and Man Of Steel at his best. -M.Y
X-men First Class.
Didn’t you just love seeing what it looked like back when Blondie’s Heart of Glass smashed the charts? Or didn’t you like the way Old School was brought back with the XMEN looking all funky and shit?If that didn’t appeal to you, then lets do a little bit more technical analysis. The name first class, really says it all for me people. Before there was Professor X & Magneto’s cat and mouse games of villains and heros, there once were two guys known as Charles Xavier & Erik Lensheer. They happened to be best friends, helping each other out, helping other mutants out, helping combat a great & devious threat. We all love a good story & we all love to see great acting. Now where the two meet a star is born or in this case lemme say stars are born (Prof X’s X-men & Magneto’s Brotherhood). The movie tells the story all-too-well that most movie directors always love to rush over and get to the part when they’re already heroes. It brings about the feeling of closure with the main x-men characters as it gave us a deeper & well level of understanding of this mutants and why they do what they do. Love a good backstory, I’m sure we all do. – Zubby
Megamind is the type of movie you see at the cinema because there’s nothing else to see and you were probably late for the movie you originally intended to view. Then you go into the cinema hall and you’re completely amazed by such brilliance. It’s a movie about how the bad guy can turn good and the good guy can turn into a pussy(coughs, pardon my language please), but let’s not get into that. The script was amazing, with clever (new) jokes cos we’re all tired of the stereotypical type of shit that comes with the every day animation. Megamind was amazing. Simply amazing and will always be amazing. –Terdoh
