Lesson here: you don't need any superpowers to fly if you're intoxicated enough.

Wonderfully weird British comedy from the early 1900's. They don't make these like they used to.

Surprisingly well made thriller for it's time. A true milestone of the genre.

A little comedic gem from Russia. A poor peasant joins forces with the Devil in order to steal czarina's shoes.

One would definitely not expect a comedy this old to be this subtle and wacky. Ernst Lubitsch was the grandmaster of the genre.

This sure has a great supervillain, which also happens to be a mad doctor and evil genius. No superheroes, though.

French avant-garde madness combined with wacky Russian humor. It's just as fun as it is weird.

This is the ultimate antithesis of all superhero flicks. These are just ordinary people doing ordinary stuff when scheisse hits the fan and everything goes downhill from there. Not escapist entertainment but a masterful vision of stark realism.

You know a film is great when Citizen Kane borrows elements from it.

In case you've ever seen the music video of Total Eclipse of the Heart by Bonnie Tyler you might recognize many similarities while watching this film. You know the stuff: broken heart, empty dark mansion with wind blowing all over, those white curtains and dead leaves flying everywhere...

Yup, you read the title right. I don't know about you guys, but I'm honestly sick of the superhero bullshit fad already. Here are some quality films that have absolutely nothing to do with the darn thing.
