The Crow (1994)

Miramax Films

Good as it is, this movie is very hard for us to watch: Star Brandon Lee was accidentally killed by a prop gun after filming, 20 years after the death of his father, Bruce Lee. The tragedy casts a pall over a movie that was dark to begin with.

Still: The Crow has a brilliantly moody goth aesthetic and undeniable power, and took a big swing at a time when superhero movies were rarely this gloomy and disruptive.

Lee is excellent as Eric Draven, a rock star who is resurrected after the murder of him and his girlfriend and guided by a crow to seek justice. We wish he could have starred in many more films.
