Every movie fan has that person. That one friend whose movie tastes align almost perfectly with their own, who is willing to re-watch old favorites, make fun of bad movies, and discuss each minute detail of a new movie. I am lucky enough to have two such people, one of whom is my younger brother.
Despite our almost ten year age difference, my brother and I have shockingly similar movie tastes. There have been many family gatherings were the two of us have staunchly defended a movie that everyone else disparaged. But the one movie debate we have on a regular basis, the one thing we can’t agree on, is the age old superhero battle: Marvel vs DC. I am, and will forever be, a DC girl. Superman has long held a special place in my heart as my favorite superhero. I love Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy so much, that I saw the The Dark Knight four times in theaters – on IMAX, no less. My brother, on the other hand, loves Marvel wholeheartedly. In fact, Captain America is his favorite of all the superheroes. And even though I appreciate Iron Man and the X-Men, and he enjoys Christian Bale’s Batman, we will always remain divided in our affections.
