It's a Bird! It's a Plane! It's a Superhero Movie!

casual superheroLast weekend I was one of the thousands of people across the country who flocked to the theater to see Iron Man 2, the much anticipated continuation of the Iron Man movie franchise. It was excellent, everything a superhero movie should be. Of course, even if the movie had been terrible, I still probably would have enjoyed it. I have a (not-so) secret love of all superhero movies – even the cheesy ones (Fantastic Four). I can’t help it! There is just something about that particular genre. The movies almost always feature great characters, a little bit of romance, a lot of heart, a battle between good and evil and, most importantly, plenty of improbable action sequences. What could be better?

Iron Man 2 may still be in theaters, but there are equally wonderful superhero movies already on DVD. Browse the HCPL catalog and request your favorites today!
