Avengers: Endgame (2019)
“Avengers: Endgame” became a massive box office success, grossing over $2.798 billion worldwide, making it the highest-grossing film of all time (as of my last update in September 2021). It was praised for its emotional depth, action sequences, and the way it brought closure to several beloved characters’ storylines in the MCU. The movie was also lauded for its impressive visual effects and the spectacular ensemble cast performances.
Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)
“Mad Max: Fury Road” received widespread critical acclaim for its stunning visuals, practical effects, and exhilarating action sequences, many of which were performed practically without relying on heavy CGI. The film’s intense and relentless action, combined with its strong performances and themes of survival and redemption, made it a standout in the action genre and one of the most acclaimed films of 2015. It won six Academy Awards and was a commercial success, solidifying its place as one of the greatest action films of all time.
The Dark Knight (2008)
The acting performances in this film are truly as great as they come. Heath Ledgers infamous take on the Joker is undoubtedly one of the most captivating, disturbing, and iconic villain performances in film history. All of the other main players in the film (especially Batman, Harvey Dent, and Commissioner Gordon) are also acted remarkably well, due in part to the immense strength of the film’s cast.
The Avengers (2012) : Roald Dahl was a writer who made numerous fantastical children’s tales with a slightly darker edge. He produced classic stoundtrack? Zemeckis combines elements from both the book and the 1990 movie but has relocated the setting from Norway and England to 1968 Chicago and Alabama in the good old US-of-A because apparently, Americans can only relate to Americans. Joining Zemeckis as co-writers are Kenya Barris (of Black-ish and Girls Trip fame) and Oscar winner Guillermo del Toro.
The plot of “Gladiator” revolves around Maximus, a skilled and honorable Roman general who is highly respected by his soldiers. After the death of Emperor Marcus Aurelius, Commodus seizes power and orders the execution of Maximus’s family. Maximus is captured and sold into slavery, eventually becoming a gladiator in the brutal arenas of ancient Rome.
