Wow, has it been almost a month since my last post? Time flies when you have no idea what’s going on around you I guess 🙂
Don’t forget that Paranormal Contact Vol. 3 is free right now! Not only that, but in just a few days you will get to vote for Paranormal Contact Vol 3 for best Science Fiction book. Once the voting is open I will post a link right here!
So I’m behind on my Top 5’s lists so you are getting two of them. Back to Back. I’m a big comic book nerd. I’ve seen most of the comic books moves that have been released, so our first top 5 will take a look at my favorite comic book movies:
Honorary Mentions: Guardians Of The Galaxy, Batman (1989), Wonder Woman (Screw you, James Cameron)
5- The Dark Knight – I mean what more do I need to say other then Heath Ledger? Very rarely do you see comic book movies get Oscar nominations other then in the tech department. But Ledger (tragically) became the Joker every second he was on screen. Bale was awesome. Harvey Dent was almost a tragic hero. And it featured one of those moments i jumped up in a movie theater at a surprise (SPOILER) when it was revealed James Gordon faked his own death
4- Spider-Man 2 – Spider-Man 1 was good. But 2 took it to the next level. Partly because of the great performance of a guy like Alfred Molina. To say that he was a likeable villain is an understatement. You liked him as Dr. Octavius which made his turn into Dr. Ock even better.
3- Iron Man – The movie that started the MCU, and for good reason. When Robert Downey Jr was announced, most people scoffed. He had his own demons and wasn’t exactly a big name anymore. But I think his demons are what made him the perfect person to play Stark.
2- Captain America: The Winter Soldier – What was amazing about this movie was the different genres it covered. Comic book movie? Check. Romance? Yeah there was some of that. Political drama? Yup. Buddy movie? Damn right. Action? Big time action. And how often do you get to (SPOILER ALERT) see Robert Redford playing a baddie?
- The Avengers – I went to the midnight showing of this one when it first released. It was historic because it was the first time we saw a team up of such massive proportions. And it lived up to the expectations. My ONLY issue was there was a little too much forced humor (That guy’s playing Galaga?)
Tonight marks the end of season 7 of Game of Thrones. Seems like it just started. Oh wait, it did. As I’m sure I’ve stated here before, a hero is only as good as a villain. So now we’re going to take a look at the best villains of the series.
Honorary Mentions – Euron Greyjoy, Tywin Lannister, Walder Frey
5.Joffrey – Oh what a little bitch he was. I hated him. There was no redeeming qualities of this character, but he was poised to take the throne. I mean sure he’s a little screwed up. Under the circumstances, I almost can’t blame him. When your uncle is also your dad? Yeah, that would make anyone a little messed in the head.
4. Littlefinger – I’ve said it before. I like Littlefinger. He’d probably be higher on the list if he had any actual claim to the throne. But he doesn’t. But he is one of the most calculating and devious characters on the show, which really says something if you think about it!
3. Ramsey Bolton – Talk about a guy going crazy for power. The things he did to gain power was incredible. And as despicable as the character was, the performance of Iwan Rheon, I didn’t hate him. I’m not saying I rooted for him like I do for Littlefinger, but he was hard to hate.
2. The Night King – I have a feeling that by the end of the series, The Night King will become # 1. We know very little about him as of writing of this, but he leads the army of the dead and apparently is really good at throwing a spear! Ultimately, he will probably be the ultimate bad guy in season 8.
1- Cersei – Speaking of devious and cunning, we have seen there’s nothing Cersei won’t do to sit on the throne. In her mind she’s the ONLY one worthy to sit there and she won’t stop at anything to achieve it. Honestly, I’m not a fan of the character but you can’t help but be impressed by what she will do to win.
So there you have it! What do you think? See you later in the week when I post the ways you can vote for my book (and you know I do hope you will!)
