My first Top Ten!

Okay, I thought I’d do something different this week! My very own top ten list!

So, let’s crack on!

TOP TEN BEST SUPERHERO PORTRAYALS IN FILM/TV.  I’ll be counting down a few of my favourite superheroes as seen on the screen!

First, some ground rules! I’m avoiding Batman and Spiderman actors. There are too many and for the most part, they’ve all done a good job! And I’m also picking these on comic accuracy over the talent offered. And finally these are only my opinion, not legitimate fact, please feel free to voice your own opinion if you disagree with mine, but please be respectful and avoid saying I work for Hydra. Okay? Cool. 🙂

Number 10, Ron Perlman as Hellboy!

imageI really liked Perlman’s performance as big red. He was cool, calm and collected for the most part and added a real humanity, almost to the point where you forgot he was bright red. Plus the dudes a literal beast in real life.

 

 

Number 9! Chris Hemsworth as Thor.

imageI may be biased here because Hemsy is an Aussie boy like me, but you can’t deny the guys a very convincing Norse god. He’s got the flowy blonde locks and the build, and he swings a hammer as good as anyone. (I don’t know much about thor but I’ve gathered that’s all he does) yay for Australia!

 

 

Number 8! Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.

imageFrom the second they released the promo image for the Amazon princess in BVS I knew they’d do a good job. Warner Bros. last good casting decision… They took a little known actress and turned her into a household name! And it payed off.

 

 

Number 7. Jon Berenthal as The Punisher.

imageThey got it right. Frank Castle is a tough guy to make likeable, but Berenthal does it! You truly see in his performance that he believes the life he’s chosen is the only option and from the second he was introduced in Daredevil season 2, it was clear that they weren’t holding back of the rage and violence that made ole’ franky so popular, but there was also so much heart to it as well (the scene in the graveyard where he’s telling Daredevil about his daughter. Tears.)

 

 

Number 6. Charlie Cox as Daredevil.

imageSpeaking of the man without fear! Netflix blessed us with a darker side of the MCU for the first time with Daredevil season 1, and it was fantastic! Thanks in no small part to the leading man! He’s a fantastic actor (who’s not really blind btw. He’s acting. I did not know that at first.) with a physical build you only get from working with marvel.

 

 

Number 5 James McAvoy and Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier.

imageNumber 5 is a two for one deal. Only because I tried so hard to choose between the two and couldn’t do it. Both are incredible talents and both accurately represent Chuck at different points in his life (McAvoy the junior and Stewart the senior) both give their all in the role and both have the right look. Especially now that McAvoy is bald.

 

 

Number 4. Christopher Reeve as Superman.

imageNow, when the 70’s rolled around, Superman was still a Boy Scout who spat out cheesy dialogue with a grin whilst holding an eagle and standing in front of the Stars and Stripes. Reeve perfectly gave us a last son who was not only all of those things but more he was a nice, charming guy who just happened to be one of the most powerful individuals in the galaxy.

 

 

Number 3. Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool.

imageIf you think he’s not perfect in the roll, then grab a Chimichanga and take another look at that picture. He perfectly blends childish humour, fourth wall breaks and as many Christmas references as he can stuff into a stocking. You know what, I’m not even going to talk about it anymore, I’m just gonna go watch Deadpool. See ya.

 

 

Number 2. Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.

imageAnother Aussie! For me, Hugh was my my very first introduction into Wolverine and from there I read a lot more comics. Hughey has always been a favourite of mine and 99% of the reason why is Wolverine. He absolutely kicks arse in the role and his rage yell is genuinely terrifying. Also. Abs.

 

 

And finally number 1! (Drum roll)

Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man!

imageAdmittedly, I had no idea who Iron Man was before the movie, but once I did some research and looked into some older stories, I realised how perfect RDJ is. FYI one of the issues I read was demon in a bottle. The parallels between Downey and Stark are quite obvious for anyone who knows. But the most important thing is they both had major comebacks!

 

And yhats my list, let me know what you thought and share your list with me! Also if you guys have any other idea for lists, I’d like to do more in the future, so swing em on over!

 

Peace out homies!

Happy Anniversary Batman:The Animated Series

I couldn’t call myself a geek if I didn’t say something about this milestone!

image

This is the big one! Quarter of a century since the greatest animated superhero series of all time aired for the first time.

Batman TAS was a game changer, Not only neatly setting up it’s own mythos, but paving the way for future animated series’ like Superman, Static Shock, Batman Beyond, Justice League and Justice League Unlimited. It also gave us the best possible voice of Batman in Kevin Conroy! To this day when I read any Batman dialogue in comics, it’s in that voice! And speaking of iconic voices… Mark Hamil anyone? Who’d have thought Luke Skywalker would be such a great Joker? And remain that way for 25 years! Seriously, these guys are still voicing Batman and Joker all these years later, fans just don’t want anyone else.

But the show wasn’t just great because of the voices, it also took the liberty of creating some new friends for Batsy to play with! Like Lock-Up, Baby Doll, Sewer King, Renee Montoya and Condiment King.

Oh and there’s one more…. Harley Quinn. That’s right! The creepy clown girl we all love got her start as eyecandy in the Joker’s gang! And now she is one of the most popular female character in comics.

This just shows how comited the writers and creators of this magnificent series were!

Happy Anniversary!

Controversial topic number 1: who’s the best Robin?

So. There have been about as many Robin’s as there are Spiderman movies.

Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Tim Drake, Stephanie Brown, Tim Drake again, Damian Wayne, Carrie Kelly…..

But who is the best? Tough question!

And yes, there is a right answer. Here it is.

First lets introduce and eliminate some Robins.

imageDick Grayson was the first and most famous Robin of all. But is he the best? He certainly made the yellow ‘R’ and red and green tights famous, but his fame and skill didn’t reach it’s peak until he broke from the bat and became Nightwing! So he’s out!

imageJason Todd was only Robin for a short time before being beaten to death by the Joker with a crowbar and left to die in a bomb blast. Although he eventually came back as Red Hood, his time as Robin was ended quickly. So he’s out!

imageCarrie Kelly was the Robin in Frank Miller’s gritty Epic The Dark Knight Returns. She’s certainly got some certificates in badassery, however she’s not technically in the main universe so she’s out. But it’d be a shame not to mention her.

imageNext is Stephanie Brown. She was really only ‘Robin’ for a few issues, the rest of the time she was starting gang wars as spoiler and breaking them up to earn Batman’s trust. Then she died. So she’s out.

imageNext is Damian Wayne. He’s out. Hate him. He’s alright as a concept, and the development with him and Dick as Batman is interesting but he is literally the worst.

imageWhich leaves the one and only Tim Drake. He is legitimately the best Robin. He trained with Alfred, Nightwing and Bruce, his detective skills are the best of any Robin, he made the classic Bo-staff famous, he was the first Robin to have a solo title as a hero in his own right, not just a sidekick. And also he had the best costume! So Tim is king. Don’t think so, I’ll fight you.

image

So that’s that! Hopefully you agree!  It’s all matter of my opinion, of course!

Now here’s a funny picture.

Peace out Homies!

The Great Game. aka 20 Questions.

The Game is Afoot!

Appreciate the Sherlock reference? Good! Just answering a few questions (20 to be exact!) to let you inside my mind!

Question Number the First: What is your name? Austin Geoffry Keith Burrows!

Question Number the Second: What is your Quest? To force my opinions on strangers on the internet!

Question Number the Third: What is your favourite colour? Blue!

Question Number the Fourth: Where do you live? I COME FROM THE LAND DOWN UNDER! LA LA LA VEGEMITE SANDWICH!

Question Number the Fifth: Marvel or DC? Marvel over DC… Wait.. DC over Marvel!

WAIT! Marvel. DC…………… Batman. Just Batman.

Question Number the Sixth: Favourite Movie? The Dark Knight! The best Batman movie to date, and even if it’s not for long, I’ll always have the sentimental attachment to it.

Question Number the Seventh: How tall are you? 6’4! so, Tall! but a skinny tall.

Question Number the Eighth: Do you have any siblings? I have two older Siblings! A 28 year old brother and a 25 year old sister!

Question Number the Ninth: Favourite food? I LOVE ITALIAN FOOD!!

Question Number the Tenth: What is the last thing you bought?  I’ve been working on a Urban Batman cosplay so I bought some armour for that. (Half way there. Go grab a drink, take a break, I’ll wait…)

Question Number the Eleventh: (Welcome back!) Favourite Marvel Hero? Either Wolverine or Spiderman… I do love Cap too though.

Question Number the Twelfth: Favourite DC Hero? I’d love to say Batman, but I recently went back and read some Nightwing, the Bludhaven arc to be exact. And I just love Dick’s journey after he breaks away from Bruce. So, Nightwing is my favourite DC character at the moment.

Question Number the Thirteenth: Favourite style of music? Music.. I really don’t have a ‘favourite’. But I was pretty much raised by Elvis and Sinatra, so I’d say Swing/Crooners.

Question Number the Fourteenth: Favourite TV series? Okay this changes almost daily! I’ll do an article on this in a few weeks! But off the top of my head, I’d have to say… TV.

Question Number the Fifteenth: If you could have any superheroes powers for a day, who’s would it be? Arm-Fall-Off-Boy! Who wouldn’t love to be able to pop their arms off and use them as a bat-like weapon…… yes, that’s a real power. no, it’s not my real answer. I’d probably pick Martian Manhunter. I just think he has it really well. He won the power jackpot! All the powers of Superman, Plus Shape-shifting, Telepathy, Invisibility, Intangibility all kinds of cool!

Question Number the Sixteenth: If you could live in a fantasy world, which one would it be? I’d love to be a Jedi, like before they all got slaughtered.

Question Number the Seventeenth: Favourite Cartoon? The old JLU animated series.

Question Number the Eighteenth: What are your hobbies besides movies and comic books? I love to sing and dance/perform on stage in general. I want to be a professional actor.

Question Number the Nineteenth: Relationship status? As Taken as Liam Neeson’s Family.

Question Number the Twentieth: What is most important in life? Serious answer time here. All I really want out of life is to share the things that I love with others, and hopefully inspire the same kind of passion.

 

So that’s me! Hopefully you enjoyed this little taste of me. That sounds dirty ahahahahah

Peace out Homies!
