2012 - Year of Superhero Movies

Summer just ended (I guess, because I'm not from a four seasoned country)! For me, this year is the year of superhero movies.Why? Because my Top 3 movies (not in any order whatsoever) are all from superheroes, only 3 of them are released this year, but all 3 of them are brilliant.

The Amazing Spider-Man

If the movie didn't get rebooted so quickly or there's no other Spider-man before this film, it would have been even better. Marc Webb's (500 Days of Summer) version of Spider-Man is much closer to the comics version than the old trilogy, that's what makes the movie stand out. The chemistry between Spider-Man/Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) & Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) really clicked as a couple and doesn't feel cheesy (probably due to Webb's excellence in 500 Days). Overall, it's an general improvement of the old ones.

The Dark Knight Rises

One of the most epic film of the last few years, The Dark Knight Rises is a little bit disappointing, due to the how great The Dark Knight is. Director Christopher Nolan chose to go bigger scale this time around, it's bigger in terms of battle and casts and it gives the ending The Dark Knight deserved. Plotholes and very obvious mistakes aside can't stop The Dark Knight Rises from being one of the best film of the year.

Marvel's The Avengers

As a superhero movie, The Avengers is the best of them all. A clever marketing by Marvel by releasing some of the most famous superheroes as individual movies before assembling them together in one big movie, and oh boy it works! Joss Whedon managed to compile so many superheroes together, without compromising quality, unlike many movies with ensemble casts. Every heroes have their time to shine.So many memorable one-liners and so many memorable scenes that can keep you excited.

Whether you prefer Batman, Spider-Man or The Avenger, you must know everyone is the winner this year in superheroes franchises...
