Isn’t every other movie an origin movie these days? With all those superhero movies coming at us from left to right, introducing characters with individual movies. The result, there are a lot of regular people becoming superheroes. With that in mind, I wanted to stay clear from all superheroes (didn’t manage completely) and pick movies that are a bit different and unique to the origin theme.
I think that I might have mentioned Split before but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to recommend it again. This is a rare origin movie which doesn’t scream origin but it is. It’s also a brilliant sequel to one of my all time favourite superhero movies, Unbreakable. It does have its flaws, and it feels like something that should be softened around the edges, but Split is still one hell of an origin movie.
Though it’s the beginning, it’s also kind of an end to the entire Hannibal movie franchise as far as I know. But it’s not because Hannibal Rising is a bad movie, it’s just that I think the need for those gruesome things moved from big screens to smaller screens. And yes, it’s not perfect but I still recall some of its horrible scenes, which is all I want from a Hannibal origin story to be honest.
Now, I know some of you will hate me for this but I actually really like Avatar. I have enjoyed that movie from start to finish multiple times, and I think it had an entertaining edge to it. Am I excited for its multiple sequels? Not sure. But I think it’s still a memorable movie that changed the way we experience movies in terms of technological advancements. And it’s an origin story of a man becoming an alien, like, how often to you get to see a movie like that?
