Some movies are meant to be light flicks, but they take a dark turn somewhere along the way, which sometimes leaves viewers with a bad taste in their mouths. Sometimes as viewers we think something is light from the start, but as a precaution you should always prepare for the worst. Now, we’re going to see some of the movies that epitomized what we just talked about!
1. Indian Jones and The Temple Of Doom: This series has always thrived on thrill and terror, but was also lighthearted. But the heart of the Indiana Jones series has always been to recreate the feeling of old adventure soap operas. But the Temple Of Doom seriously compromised the fun. The Temple of Doom features scenes of child slavery and human sacrifice. Even Steven Spielberg and Lucas have expressed their regret for this film’s dark and morbid storyline.
2. The Hunchback of Notre Dame: This is an unlikely approach for a Disney movie. Judge Claude is the meanest Disney villain, fueled by lust. The music of the Hunchback is also darker than that of other Disney films. There are still some funny moments. The ending has also been rewritten, but it’s hard to thoroughly clean up such a dark story.
3. Star Wars: Revenge Of The Sith: Despite a poor base, the film is brilliant in giving a dramatic end to the prequel trilogy. The story is about the end of the era of heroes, the fall of a good man to evil and the transformation of a democracy into a dictatorship. A dark turn of events indeed! With Darth Vader murdering school kids, almost onscreen, it’s certainly a dark film.
4. Toy Story 3: This is a light animation series for children. Each Toy Story movie delves into a series of existential crises that arise for toys. But Toy Story 3 is the darkest of them. The owner of the toy grows up and has no use for toys. They are therefore thrown into an incinerator. Eventually, they are saved, but this light-hearted film is not without obscurity.
5. Kung Fu Panda-2: A film with this title should be light and not tragic. But this one is. This film maintains the awkwardness of the script and adds dark moments to the script. He explains the genocide of the people of Po by Lord Shen, a ruthless villain.
6. The Amazing Spider-Man: This film from a generally light-hearted series made darkness and grit the thing inside. He took the “Batman Begins” route instead of the generally light-hearted Spidey films.
7. The fantastic four: Tim Story’s Fantastic Four had a poor cast and attraction for a sitcom. He set the bar extremely low. Josh Trank’s reboot thrilled fans to see how it would improve on what the original duology did. But unfortunately he failed. The attempt to introduce a somber tone made the situation incredibly dull.
