Baked good, glorious sunrays and boding hues. Bold symbolism, sullen whimpers and packets of pseudo-characterism. There's a lot that goes into film before it can be experienced by its audience. In all sterness, movies are top tier manipulation machines since their dawn, and we're mere topiary to filmmakers. How we perform and experience our personal lives now has a lot to do with the stories we've seen on-screen. We're also introduced to varying and alternate realities, and we're thus more open to the idea of the paranormal. This helps us imagine many events where we may be confronted with the likes of alien invasions, technological paranoia and human catastrophe.
2017 has been a year to behold for superhero-themed live-action movies. We got a total of seven films out of the crazed genre; ranging from origin stories to team-ups of some of our iconic comic book heroes. I must say, I was satisfied by the efforts we've gotten from the filmmakers who were entrusted with bringing our heroes to life respectively. Even with some dire misfortunes, none of these movies completely fell flat.
