Hey everyone! I’m trying to build a spotify playlist of music from superhero or superhero adjacent (Godzilla, Transformers, Sonic, basically any fun special effects heavy movie where a good guy fights a bad guy) movies that aren’t part of the MCU or DCEU (already have a playlist for each).
Does anyone have any recommendations for movies like that with killer scores?
You know it’s a bad time when the villains are more sympathetic than the heroes on a consistent basis
So I’ve been thinking about the Oscars, specifically superhero movies. I would love nothing more than for the bombastic, colorful, action packed, insanity to be taken more seriously and get more than one or two wins every few years. I know Joker won but even from the advertisements, it had more of a art house film rather than ‘Backstory of Batman’s GREATEST FOE!!!’ vibe.
There is NOTHING wrong with that! At all! The fact Joker has won so much is incredible! However! As everyone with a bias is during award shows, I want to see more of the movies I favor earn an award and ultimately validate these movies and elevate them to something beyond “Summer Blockbuster Eye & Brain Candy.”
I’m proud of the superhero movies that have won in the past, even if sometimes you’re like ‘wot?’ (looking at you Best Make Up Suicide Squad. I thought Star Trek should have won that year but here I am, still not a member of that club…yet.)
but what happened to big hero 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5?
Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), from now on referred to as BOP for brevity, directed by Cathy Yan with a script by Bumblebee screenwriter Christina Hodson, follows Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) as she carves out her own place in Gotham City after breaking up with the Joker.
After an act of destructive spectacle to make sure everyone knows she’s serious about the breakup, Harley finds out just how many people want her dead now that the Clown Prince of Crime won’t be protecting her. Special notice in that aspects gets given to Roman Sionis (Ewan McGregor), aka Black Mask, a mob boss of Gotham’s East End currently making a play for the city as a whole.

Never in all my years watching movies a character was as relatable as Harley Quinn with her sandwich
