If you can’t stand watching Forgot Me, this article is for you! Discover 5 films with superheroes that bring action and fun, but without losing the Christmas spirit!
Shazam (HBO GO)
Billy Batson (Asher Angel) is a troublemaker orphan who refuses to be adopted because he hopes his mother is still looking for him. However, things don’t go as planned and he ends up being adopted by a couple from foster families. In this new house, he meets his new brothers, but he does not feel part of the family. However, everything changes when he defends one of his brothers at school and now stops in a magical subway car that takes him to meet the sorcerer Shazam (Djimon Housou). In front of the wizard, he takes an oath and transforms into an adult superhero (Zachary Levi) with powers similar to that of Superman (Henry Cavill).
Now, with the help of his younger brother, he will try to figure out how to use his powers to stop the terrible Dr. Silvana (Mark Strong). The film is about family, togetherness and the possibility of being a better person. As if that weren’t enough, everything takes place at Christmas. One of the best requests for those who don’t want to fall for the same Christmas clichés.
Batman: The Return (HBO GO)
Considered by many to be the best Batman movie, Batman: Return tells the story of orphan Bruce Wayne (Michael Keaton), who disguises himself as a bat to fight crime in Gotham and try to cope better with the trauma of the loss of his parents still in childhood. In this Gothic Christmas adventure, he will face off against the terrible villainous Penguin (Danny DeVito), who has decided to unite with the cruel and alluring Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer) to take control of the city on Christmas. As well as the movie set in Tim Burton’s gothic Christmas atmosphere, the movie brings a lot of lessons in Christmas shit and love.
A toy hero (Disney +)
Joining Terminator with young Anakin Skywalker in a classic Christmas afternoon session movie that is about love, consumption, and terrorist attacks on the radio, A Toy Hero features Arnold Schwarzenegger as a loving father who begins to experience crisis days in your family relationship. The situation worsens when he forgets to buy the Christmas present from his son, who ordered the best-selling toy in toy history. Desperate, he gets into a cat-and-mouse argument with a postman (Sinbad) to see who will get the last doll.
Iron Man 3 (Disney +)
Controversial and unappreciated by fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Iron Man 3 is one of the most underrated Christmas movies of recent times. In fact, I believe most people who talk badly about this adventure didn’t understand that this was a Christmas movie, as well as Deadly Machine, which was also directed by Shane Black. In the plot, like in any good Christmas movie, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is an orphan who went through traumatic situations throughout his life and decided to use him to become a great hero and struggle. against crime. This time, experiencing the post-traumatic stress of having saved the world from an alien invasion, he will be threatened by a terrorist named The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) in the middle of the Christmas season. Confident in his new technology for Iron Man’s armor, Tony challenges him, but ends up being defeated. Abandoned for dead, he must give up his arrogance to work with a special boy (Ty Simpkins), who will help him understand that the most important thing in life is family. All to the sound of Jingle Bells.
Guardians of the Galaxy (Disney +)
Directed by James Gunn, the 2014 Marvel phenomenon is a film full of incredible struggles and spectacular visual effects, but the great essence of it is being a film about stray people who understand the importance of being together. for life to have meaning and for them to gain a purpose, even if it means looting, smuggling and doing odd jobs here and there as mercenaries. In the film, Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) is an orphan (he never fails) who is abducted the day his mother dies. Created by aliens in outer space, he becomes one of the best bounty hunters the galaxy has ever seen. However, when he goes after the Orb, he ends up crossing his path with Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) and the humanoid tree Groot (Vin Diesel). At first they don’t understand each other and try to kill each other all the time, but what family hasn’t gone through these crises, right? As they learn to live together, life improves and they understand the meaning of family. It is a story of love, family, sacrifice and new chances in life. Everything that Christmas means.
