Since superheroes are the thing that puts asses in the seat for people to see in the big screen. Bubbawheat of Flights, Tights, and Movie Nights presented a blog relay that goes from one blogger to another as Alex of And So It Begins... has passed the baton to me. Here are the rules:
1. The list of movies will be passed to another blogger who will post their list within a week.
2. The blogger will take their list, remove 3 movies – with explanations, and replace with 3 new movies – with explanations.
3. If a movie lasts five rounds without being removed, it becomes locked in; it is permanent and can no longer be removed from the list.
4. If a movie is removed three different times, it is locked out and can no longer be put back onto the list by someone else.
5. Once four movies are locked into place, bloggers will replace 2 movies.
6. Once eight movies are locked into place, bloggers will replace 1 movie.
7. Once all ten movies are locked into place, the relay will be complete.
Alrighty then. Here are the Eight Films Locked in From the Relay So Far:
The Dark Knight
Here are the four films that are still on board for the final two spots:
Guardians of the Galaxy
X2: X-Men United
What Goes Out: The Crow
I haven’t seen Guardians of the Galaxy so it would be unfair if I take it out unless someone who has seen it has a reason why it shouldn’t be on the list. I like The Crow as it’s a film I saw in my teenage years and I would see it every once in a while. I like the look of it and it’s premise. I also enjoy the performances from the late Brandon Lee as well as Michael Wincott and Ernie Hudson. I love the soundtrack which I still have. It just that it never really clicked with me as one of the best superhero films.
What Goes In: Superman
This is a film I grew up watching as a kid and I never get tired of it. For me, this is where the modern superhero film really begins as it had this great origin story as well as a sense of idealism that is still relevant (except for the American way idea). Plus, how can anyone not love Christopher Reeve as Superman? He had the look of it while he was also a great Clark Kent. Adding to that equation in its greatness is Gene Hackman as Lex Luthor.
Who I’m Passing the Baton to: Dan of Public Transportation Snob since I like to know what he thinks as he had recently done a marathon of superhero films.
