Superhero Movies Here To Stay

Superhero movies. Once upon a time the very idea was a joke. The only successful superhero movies (Batman, Superman) were the exclusion domain of DC. How that has changed! Marvel characters have become immensely popular with movie fans since the first X-Men movie and this was further escalated by Marvel themselves entering the fray with the first Iron Man movie. With The Avengers generating over a billion dollars at the box office, Marvel licensees like SONY and Fox are dead set on holding on to its prized franchises.

PACIFIC RIMPACIFIC RIM

Pacific Rim Review

Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim is the latest in a recent line of original scifi blockbusters that more or less began with the phenomenal success of Christopher Nolan’s Inception.

Iron Man Three

With the Disney+ streaming being made available worldwide in February 2021, and with most of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies collected in one convenient place, we take this opportunity to revisit past reviews of these geek-worthy movies. Here’s one from 2013 : Iron Man Three! 

Iron Man 2 was only half a movie, in our humble opinion. The first half was quick-paced and exhilarating but then the wheels came off and the movie came to a tired conclusion. The sequel did well at the box office but one sensed that director Jon Favreau had lost interested in the franchise that he had kickstarted. So when it came to talk about the third movie, Favreau passed and Shane Black came onboard.

OBLIVIONOBLIVION

Oblivion

Truth be told, I was excited when I saw the first trailer for sci-fi Tom Cruise action movie vehicle Oblivion. It looked intriguing. Of course, a trailer really does not tell you anything about the movie itself. I was also excited by the fact that Oblivion was an original premise (based on a story co-authored by director Joe Kosinski) and perhaps was hoping that it would be as good as District 9, Moon or Inception.
