As someone who basically lives at the movie theatre, this year certainly didn’t disappoint me in terms of movies. From The Hunger Games to The Amazing Spiderman to The Avengers, plenty of film franchises racked up some serious cash at the box office.
While the Academy favours artistic movies over franchises, I personally think some of these films are worthy of Oscar nominations because they are SO GOOD.
Here are five movies I highly suggest you to watch as soon as you can.
From the start, this film had plenty of potential. Having separate films surrounding the main characters, such as Thor, Iron Man and Captain America, what could be more awesome than putting all of them together to fight the evils of Loki?
Unlike the disappointment that was Fantastic Four, this film had everything going for it. From the pacing and the action, to the chemistry between the characters and Robert Downey Jr.’s cool humour, Joss Whedon couldn’t have been a better director/writer for this movie.
I’m saying this as someone who doesn’t normally read comic books (tragic, I know). But considering how this film kept me on my toes from beginning to end, The Avengers could arguably be one of the year’s best movies.
