Hello everyone! It’s been quite some time since I’ve done a typed out post, but Top # Lists are always a bit more dense and can be articulated slightly more clearly when typed out.
Plus, I’ve been a little sparse on posts for this month, but I’ve been managing the end of the school year, packing up and storing all my stuff in L.A., and beginning to work for the start of the summer back in Massachusetts.
However, this is a post I’ve wanted to do for a bunch of months now and will hopefully provide you guys with a few must-see movies to check out this summer. Because (as I alluded to before) I have officially completed my first semester at USC! I was in two film classes for my major and saw a ton of great movies. Over fourteen weeks, I saw one movie in each of my classes, so twenty-eight movies total. And in those two classes, I learned a lot from my professors, a lot from discussion, and a lot from each movie. And luckily, I enjoyed twenty-seven of those twenty-eight movies (the less said about The Help, the better…). So now, for your enjoyment and mine, I’m gonna count down my Top Five favorites of those twenty-eight movies (all twenty-eight, seen below).
So without further ado, here are my Top Five Favorite Movies from the First Semester at Film School!
Hello loyal readers! Every year (or at least most years…) I always try to do a post that acknowledges some of the best scenes from the previous year in film. Each scene I put on this list is, for one reason or another, a great one in my eyes. They were either amazingly emotional, or exciting, or action-packed, or satisfying in a film that I also thought to be great.
Not all of the movies on this list were in my Top 10 Best Movies of 2017, but they all stood out for one reason or another.
So without further ado, here are my picks for Top 25 Best Movie Scenes of 2017!
It’s the most TERRIBLE time of the year everybody!
There’s something inescapable about superheroes. Whether it be the big action spectacles, the tights, or the image of the man who we all imagined becoming one day (*sniff* there’s still time…), we live in an age of superheroes. (NOT an Age of Ultron. That would be bad.) Since we, as a society, always strive for the best and need to sort things into specific little boxes, I thought that this was a perfect time to consider some of the best superhero movies that have debuted on the big screen recently.
But first, some disclaimers! FIRST: These are just the movies. I love Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Arrow (the first two seasons at least…) and most other superhero TV as much as the next guy. However, we’re only focusing on the big budget releases in theaters for today. SECOND: These are just the recent movies. As in, these films have all comes out after January 1st, 2010. I did a Top 10 Superhero Movies Ever list a couple years ago and it quickly became outdated, so I’ll wait a little while before doing one again… Regardless, some of the best Superhero Movies have come out just in the past seven years! THIRD: This is only my list. There are gonna be some movies that you love that simply didn’t make this list, so feel free to rant to your friends or leave a comment about it. I’d love to hear what your take it and what your favorites are, for real!
BUT, now with all those disclaimers out of the way, let’s dive into the Top 10 Best Superhero Movies of the 2010s! (So far)
25 of the most impressive sequences I saw in all movies throughout all of 2016. I mainly based these on how well the scene was directed and picked the 25 that most thoroughly hit their intended emotional markers whether it be making me laugh, cry, feel pivotal to the plot, or wrap up the film in an impressive way. Let me know what your favorites from 2016 were in the comments down below!
(in no particular order…)
