This is the first time of jumped on the Thursday Movie Picks band wagon without tagging onto the end of Allie's and this has to be my favourite topic so far. I'll let Wandering through the Shelves explain Thursday Movie Picks in their words....
Hello there and welcome to Thursday Movie Picks a weekly series where you share three movie picks each Thursday. The rules are simple simple: Each week there is a topic for you to create a list of three movies. Your picks can either be favourites/best, worst, hidden gems, or if you're up to it one of each.For further details visit the series main page here.
Soo I spotted one of my favourites on the hosts own list - Sky High, it was great twist on the superhero movie, but no point going over the same movies again and again so I thought I would choose another three...
Fantastic Four (1994)
Based on the comic book movies that are coming out now, this one seems pretty lame but at the time I loved it. It was my first experience of a comic book movie and really one of the first superhero movies I really enjoyed. Having loved this so much when it came out, I am a little apprehensive about the up and coming reboot but The Amazing Spiderman didn't disappoint me so fingers crossed.
Bit of a twist on the typical superhero movie (and maybe cheating just a tiny bit), I loved how it was a different view on what happens when one day you develop super powers. Somehow it seems a more realistic approach than squeezing into a lyrca suit and mask and chasing down villains. Also one of my first films with Dane Dehaan who I love.
Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
I'm going to go all 'typical' and choose one of the popular ones :-) I can't help it, I absolutely LOVED this film. Ok the villain was a bit wet and really had no reason to destroy the Earth but everything else made up for it, the soundtrack, the characters, the acting, the dialogue and the CGI work, brilliant. I remember watching the whole film with a massive grin on my face and it still happens every time I watch it.
