Iron Man 3 (2013)
Iron Man 3 succeeds even though its titular hero spends two-thirds of the movie without his armor. The movie has the perfect amount of plot, laughs (mainly from banter), and action, much of it explosive (fairly comprehensible). Both Robert Downey Jr. and Shane Black, who is known for their work in the action genre as a screenwriter (Lethal Weapon, The Last Action Hero), deserve some of the credit for this (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang). While Whedon's Avengers still loomed large in the background (and served as a significant source of inspiration for Tony Stark's character journey in Iron Man 3), Black maintains much tighter control over the plot and pacing than Jon Favreau did in Iron Man 2.
Iron Man 3 is a better-made movie than its predecessor, but Robert Downey Jr. is Tony Stark, so it ultimately succeeds for the same reason the first two movies did. Despite 50 years of Tony Stark's character development in comic books, Downey Jr. has essentially displaced the character, whereas most actors, no matter how talented the performance, play second fiddle to the character they depict. The character has never been as interesting as the armor he wore, in part because of this, but primarily because Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark is just so much more fun to be around than Stark Classic.
The Fate of the Furious (2018)
The fundamental benefit of dynamic motion, which involves the heart and pulse, is The Fate of the Furious, which is why movies exist. The Fast series of action movies follows a band of gifted outlaws who participate in illicit street racing and eventually, heists. Even though the cast has changed over time, the basic premise hasn't changed: a colorful cast of eccentric characters with a variety of talents, led by Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his accomplice/girlfriend/wife Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez), get involved in situations with ever-rising stakes.
Even the adversaries who are sent after them gradually become a member of the family as the series progresses—escalation being the key word here—as in the first film, when undercover officer Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) joined the group, and subsequently by Diplomatic Security Service agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson).
Incredibles 2 picks up precisely where the original movie left off, with the Family Parr in costume reacting to the Underminer's arrival (John Ratzenberger). Their altercation with the bad guy attracts Winston Deavor's (Bob Odenkirk) attention, or more specifically, enables Deavor and his sister Evelyn's (Catherine Keener) to attract the Parrs' attention. With the help of Winston's persuasive skills and Evelyn's technological prowess, the siblings hope to restore the public perception of superhumans. To do this, they intend to put Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson) on the back burner for the time being and use Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) as the tip of the spear in their charm offensive.
Watch the spouse strive to succeed as a stay-at-home dad! This sets up a second act that is firmly by the numbers in terms of story development, but no less entertaining. Any parent who has ever felt overwhelmed by the straightforward, painful challenges of parenthood will be able to relate to Bob's attempts to deal with teen romance, Jack-manifestation Jack's powers, and, horror of horrors, "new" math.
Beauty and the Beast(2017)
The generation before them wonders where all the enchantment went while a generation of children gawks at massive CGI landscapes and a talking teacup. Beauty and the Beast, a purportedly live-action adaptation of the beloved Disney animated classic from 1991, hits every note of the original movie slowly and without distinction. Although this version's new parts are excellent, they are crammed into an outdated design that we have seen before and can't always make the greatest use of them. The opening tune "Belle (Little Town)" is the ideal counterpoint to the grand entrance from Disney's castle since it has the appearance and timbre of a well-choreographed TV musical special.
The idea of a town that is both too small and too full is made clear by the swarm of gesticulating townspeople competing for their moment in the French sun. The story then takes up: Maurice (Kevin Kline), Belle's father and the local handyman, is off to the market and will return with a rose. For almost the entire first half of the film, Maurice plays the lead role.
Disney's decision to resurrect the animated musical brand that dominated the early 1990s made perfect sense given that everything old is new again in Hollywood these days. Parents who grew up repeating dialogue and singing along to songs from Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, and Aladdin were also catered to by the witty nostalgia play Frozen. Frozen, which is very loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen's famous tale The Snow Queen, is packed with big, bold melodies, cuddly creatures and cunning villains, and two brand-new Disney princesses.
The older of the two, Elsa, was endowed from birth with the power to summon snow and ice using only her hands. To the delight of young Anna, this allows the sisters to skate, sled, or create a snowman whenever they want. But once Anna is hurt in an ice-related mishap and their parents restrict Elsa from utilizing her magic, Elsa's extraordinary gift quickly comes to feel more like a punishment. Elsa, who is afraid, retreats to her chamber, effectively leaving Anna, whose memory of the incident has been obliterated by a compassionate troll king.
Jurassic World (2018)
Although it's not the best or worst movie in the series, Jurassic World: the Fallen Kingdom is unquestionably the most proficient. Director J.A. Bayona gives us just one more perfectly below-average blockbuster that occasionally understands what's so primal and wondrous about the subject matter, 25 years after Steven Spielberg dominated the summer with the most amazing, dreadful dinosaurs you've ever seen, with his vision of an island under their control. The movie focuses on the effects of the events of 2015's Jurassic World, which resulted in the collapse of the dino-themed amusement park and the death of the majority of the powerful dinosaurs.
The last of the dinosaurs are about to perish due to an active volcano on the island, which worries Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard), who has become a fervent supporter of protecting their varied kinds, three years later. She asks her ex-boyfriend Owen (Chris Pratt), who she once loved, to help her save the enormous reptiles because she now regrets her part in running a park that made money off of them.
Stars Wars (2017)
The Last Jedi, unlike its predecessor, has the freedom to be adventurous, and while there are many, many wonderful aspects to it, maybe the most exciting aspect is how freely it makes use of that freedom. The Last Jedi pushes the audience, challenges the Star Wars mythos, and even challenges the entire blasted series itself, whereas The Force Awakens was essentially just Star Wars done again in a fresh, but familiar way. It destroys the cosmos to reconstruct it; it is both a continuation and a fresh start.
Above all else, it ventures into territories that no Star Wars movie has ever dared to explore. In a sense, J.J. Abrams' success with The Force Awakens—particularly how overtly fan-servicey it was—set the stage for what The Last Jedi may accomplish. You were reminded by that film of the enduring strength and primordial force of this series. This film employs that strength and might to help you feel a part of something bigger, which makes it an even more stunning magic trick
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (2011)
Everything comes to an end. It was also a fitting farewell for the illustrious franchise. Perhaps no other children's film series (and very few series of films overall) has consistently produced strong graphics and narrative as Harry Potter does. Nothing less than an epic event can be said to describe Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II. Harry is shown crying beside the grave of the slain Dobby by the seaside, picking up where Part 1 left off. Even those who had read and studied the source material felt heartbroken by Dobby's passing. It's one thing to take in the tragedy through written words, but the movie media can deliver a more potent hit.
Of course, the words on the screen become empty without a reverent rendition of the tale that the novel's author produced. Additionally, the Potter franchise has experimented with four directors and two writers throughout eight films, finding success and failure through various changes.
The first MCU movie to assert that it is most obviously a manifestation of a specific director's voice might be Black Panther. While we shouldn't go so far as to label Black Panther as an auteurist film because it is still a Disney production and (ironically) a product of the monopolizing Empire (i.e., devour the rich), its action sequences, in particular, feel like they belong in Coogler's canon.
Just take a look at the opening scene in a South Korean casino, where T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman), Okoye (Danai Gurire), and Nakia (Lupita Nyong'o) are plotting to stop a deal between Klaue and everyone's favorite CIA milquetoast, Everett Ross (Martin Freeman, charming), for a vibranium-filled artifact that Klaue stole from some Andy Serkis, freed from mocap, is also still a remarkable presence, even as a gangster shitbag and Coogler gets on his wavelength, carving out the geography of the casino in long tracking shots, much like he persuaded us to love stained, shitty-looking Philadelphia gyms in Creed by helping us to comprehend the many crevices and corners of each hole in the wall.
Avengers: Age of Ultrons(2015)
The second Avengers movie opened to positive reviews, but it subsequently saw some immediate backlash, with many fans of the superhero genre claiming that while it was undoubtedly enjoyable, it took a step back from Joss Whedon's record-breaking original. This action-packed tale has a lot to offer, even if it can't fully match it and at times feels like a bridge to the next Avengers adventure. James Spader does a fantastic job voicing the godlike Ultron, an AI character that is delightfully conceited and childish and whose performance is only let down by the storyline.
The Frozen sequel has a sensation of diminishing returns as if it was only made because Disney didn't want to pass up an easy billion dollars rather than for any compelling aesthetic or narrative reasons. However, to the studio's credit, it didn't need to be this amazing; virtually anything with the title "Frozen II" and Anna and Elsa on the poster would've been an instant hit. Frozen II builds on the first film in a logical way and emphasizes the elements that made it successful. spectacular computer animation and opulent show tunes. Gary Martin
