A young squire with a gift for jousting ends up competing and pretending to be a Knight in order to make money and survive.
With so many superhero films bombarding us over the past few years I have decided to put together a top 5 list of my favourites!
Throughout the history of cinema, there have been famous duos: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid; Han and Luke (or Han and Chewie for that matter); Doc Brown and Marty McFly; Jake and Elwood Blues. The pairings go on and on (and actually, this list sums up a lot of the best ones).
For most of the famous duos in cinema, there’s an iconic status that comes into play. We love these duos not just because they were great together on screen but because their projects have stood the test of time and now resonate as classics. That makes it a little harder to determine who the lasting, impactful duos of modern cinema will be. But in the spirit of a certain goofy movie about male models coming out soon, let’s take a stab at it anyway…
The second instalment in Christopher Nolan’s incredible Batman trilogy. Gotham City is turned upside down as The Joker begins to cause chaos in the city, pushing everyone to find out their limits.
I am part of ‘The Great Villain Blogathon’ which is co-hosted by Ruth of Silver Screenings, Karen of Shadows & Satin and Kristina of Speakeasy. I have picked The Joker from The Dark Knight as my villain to write this blog post about. It’s certainly going to be an interesting journey into one of the best villains we have seen in recent years at the cinema.
Stumbled across Mettel Ray Movie Blog and spotted a fantastic blogathon and thought I would get involved. Fantastic idea of coming up with your movie alphabet making it consist of movies, directors, actors and actresses who’s lives revolve around movies.
The way I decided to approach picking my alphabet was to put down the first 5 movie related things that came to mind for the certain letter! Well most of the time 5 . . . That was actually harder than I thought!
Batman has always been my favorite superhero/comic book based film series. The older ones and then Nolan’s reboot was exactly what I wanted to see. I cannot really explain where, when and why my love for Batman started but it did and still exists. I still love the older films and bought the DVD box set years ago. Yes I do have a soft spot for Batman Forever and even slightly for Batman & Robin – yes I do realise that people are going to judge me for that but I remember seeing that film at the cinema just before my 10th birthday and let’s face it I probably hadn’t seen anything like that at the time. I know now it is so cheesy and just not in the same league as the other films but I cannot help but remember what it was like watching it for the first time in the cinema, it was exciting. I saw Batman Begins in the cinema on its release and the same with The Dark Knight, which I then saw another two times making that my record of three times for a film at the cinema. The Dark Knight Rises I attended a 5 am screening and will be heading back to the cinema this afternoon for a second viewing. It’s not only Batman that I find myself loving but the villains are always so interesting and brilliant as well. The actors who have been in the films always seem to be spot on with it and create something really special to watch from start to finish.
In a build up to this year’s Oscars they have released images celebrating the movies which have let a lasting impression, telling us what we learnt from that particular film. Obviously most of these films are previous Oscar winners, some of which are my favorite films.
