Favorite superhero movies & tv shows

Hamlette at Hamlette's Soliloquy is hosting a 'We love superheroes week' blogathon from February 11-17.  Today, I'm listing seven of my favorite movies and tv shows.


01/ Superman the movie and Superman II — Christopher Reeve is the ultimate superman for me as I have seen these movies first so it's reasonable that I'm attached to them more than the new ones. Super III & Superman IV were a bit off but I didn't hate them.

Favorite quote: "I'm here to fight for truth, and justice, and the American way."


02/ The Incredibles — I like the family of superheroes and there is a lot of humor here. My favorite is Violet Parr, the Invisible girl and Edna Mode - what a great character, she is so funny.

Favorite quote: "I never look back, darling! It distracts from the now." 


03/ The Bionic woman — Some might said Jaime Sommers (as played by Lindsay Wagner) is not a superhero and she doesn't have powers but she does have a pair of bionic legs, an arm and an ear. I like she is a normal person who just happened to become bionic and she keeps her job as a school teacher while going on missions. There is a lot of humor in the show too.

Favorite quote:
Tipsy Man: "Man, where did you get a grip like that?"
Jaime Sommers: "In the police academy."


04/ Sky High — it's just a fun movie thought a bit cliche but it is enjoyable to watch.

Favorite quote: Principal Powers: [over the intercom] "There is no smoking on school grounds. Or freezing, or bursting into flames."


05/ The Incredible Hulk — Every time I hear the theme song, I'm reminded of this show. So the special effects aren't so great compare to today but I didn't mind. I like that his name is David Banner instead of Bruce Banner. David just sounds so much more likable.
  
Favorite quote: "Mr. McGee, don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry."


06/ Captain America: The First Avenger/Captain America: The Winter Soldier — they're both good movies though I think it's more enjoyable to watch one right after the other.

Favorite quote: "I don't like bullies; I don't care where they're from."


07/ Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman — Dean Cain is definitely my second favorite Superman actor right after Christopher Reeve. This series is pretty good though it did took a long while for Lois to find out Clark is Superman which I suppose makes sense but at least they addressed it pretty well. And I totally adore Clark's parents - they're so supportive and fun.

Favorite quote: "Well, what he can't do, it doesn't matter. It's the idea of Superman. Someone to believe in, someone to build a few hopes around. Whatever he can do, that's enough. I just wish that I could tell him that."
