Birdman- Superhero movies rule the box office

search

I saw Birdman yesterday and I enjoyed the performances. It stars Michael Keaton as Birdman, a superhero he played years ago in his acting career, who haunts him.

I especially liked Emma Stone’s performance as his daughter.
I appreciate the story and relate to being known as mostly one character from a movie.

Superhero movies are wildly popular, Avengers opening this weekend to great success as an example.

  1. I guess I’m old school. I mostly like the current crop of superhero films but when I think of my favorite, I believe it comes down to 1979’s Superman. I like Henry Cavill’ s current representation of Superman, but Christopher Reeve will always be the definitive Superman for me.

    As for other films, I like the first X-Men film and the last one: Days of Future Past. On a different note, there was a movie called “Sky High” that was a live action Disney film about superpowered kids in high school. I found it quite fun and it had a lot of covers of 80’s songs in the soundtrack that I enjoyed.

    One last thing: I hope we get a decent female superhero film in the near future. Both Catwoman and Elektra were not that strong in the portrayal of superheroines. Hopefully the upcoming Wonder Woman film will rectify that.

    Keep on posting.

    1. Yeah, Superman with Christopher Reeve is great.
      Sky High sounds interesting, especially the 80s music part!
      Yeah, more female superheroes would be awesome.
      Wonder Woman should be interesting. It was directed by Patty Jenkins. She also directed Monster which has a great performance by Charlize Theron!
