Every so often, films have a stellar cast whom, as a group, are the very defining factors that upgrade your average movie into a must-see.
Here are 5 films with an awesome squad that we want to be a part of:
- The Ocean’s Gang- Ocean’s 11, 12, 13
We know every member of a heist gang counts, so whether it’s our surprising ability to predict complications, or to keep the enemy at bay, our talent will sure be maximised to its every potential. We’ve all imagined being part of Clooney and Pitt’s gang (and witnessing their bromance first hand), so thwarting a billionaire in Vegas shouldn’t be difficult with a squad this solid. Besides, our tuxedo game would be so strong; people would finally stop asking us if we’re going to a high-school prom.
- Harry Potter and Friends
Would we be the one member of this magical gang who would have predicted Hermione and Ron’s inevitable attraction towards each other? Joining Harry and his friends in conquering the Dark wizard is enough to wish someone would put a sleeping spell on us, but then having a badass group of friends with insane magical abilities, may just bring us the courage we’ve always needed. We’d probably have fun turning each other into rats or coming up with unusual spells, just because we can. A wizard’s life is so much more compelling than a muggle’s!
- The Scooby Doo Gang
Probably one of the earliest definition of squads for most of us, this crime-solving group of teenagers and their trusty canine, made us all wish we were part of their gang. Seeing as Fred plays the dashing leader, Daphne the stylish and sassy vixen, Velma the brains and Shaggy and Scooby the dog, are well… helpful in their own ways, we reckon we’ll fit in just fine! We know we’d be helping solve mysteries and going on adventurous road trips by being part of this entourage. Anything for the promise of Scooby Snacks!
- The Avengers
Being part of a super squad like the Avengers is every civilian’s dream. We’ll be helping to defeat threats against Earth, even if it’s just by polishing Iron Man’s helmet, reminding Captain America he’s great or just by trying to calm down the Hulk. Think about it, we could try picking up Thor’s hammer when he’s not looking and learn a few highly trained skills from Black Widow. Villainous terrors don’t stand a chance with our gang of saviours!
- The Barden Bellas- Pitch Perfect
A group that harmonises together, stays together. Being a member of this all-girls acapella gang will sure be entertaining. While it may prove difficult to be heard among the other ‘Bellas’, we’re guaranteed to find a voice, which may or may not come up sounding, strangely, like Katy Perry’s Firework. As a member of the ‘Bellas’, we’ll help the girls fight their way through singing competitions (and also help limit damage control), proving our energy is undefeatable.
