Guest Expressed: “Top 5 Female Superheroes Of All Time?”

Today we hear from Nick who discusses a few female superheroes – some “real” and some…out there. Enter Nick:

When you think of superheroes it’s not uncommon for “Batman” or “Superman” to pop into your head. But why is it exactly that the boys get to have all the fun? We all know that the girls are the ones with real talent and let’s not forget LOOKS!

This post is destined to outline the top 5 female superheroes of all time. Some make this list because of their butt-kicking talents, some their looks, while some have the ultimate combination of both!

5. Batgirl

Everyone knows about Batman, but it’s Batgirl who deserves all the credit. Who doesn’t love a woman in tight clothing that can kick some major butt!? As daughter of Gotham City police commissioner James Gordon she is the head of library. At night time this bombshell is fighting crime right next to Batman and Robin. Batgirl isn’t the only attractive superhero in the Batman series as she actually co-exists with our number 4 Top female superhero of all time – Cat Woman!

 4. Cat Woman

Continuing with the Batman theme we move on to our number 4 female superhero of all time – Cat Woman. Unlike Batgirl who is the left hand woman to Batman, Cat Woman is as self sufficient as they come. As an adversary to Batman they have a “love-hate” relationship. It’s pretty understandable why someone could “love” the Cat Woman.

Every guy loves a woman with long nails but this is one woman you especially don’t want to piss off. A nice back message could leave you with two inches less skin!

3. “Beer Woman”

The number three spot goes to everybody’s favorite fictitious superhero “Beer Woman”. Simply being able to fly or bend a steel pole is no longer impressive to people. Being able to fly while carrying a six pack of your favorite alcoholic beverage sure is though! Don’t worry if you see Beer Woman flying around without her six pack because she always has back-ups. A beer belt is always available in extreme emergencies when cold beverages are an absolute must!

2. Lara Croft

Lara Croft is definitely not a traditional superhero but it’s only appropriate that she make it towards the top of the top ANYTHING women related posts. The thought of leaving a dark haired beauty that used guns as her primary weapons off the list is a travesty. While the rest of the superhero gals have greats powers and skills you simply can’t mess with a woman who you know is only looking for an excuse to pump a couple rounds into anyone.

1. Wonder Woman

It should be no secret that Wonder Woman makes the top of this list. No other superhero male or female comes close to being as dominant as this woman. Wonder Woman is a descendent of the gods and has all the powers necessary to take out anyone good or evil.

Not only is she one of the most effective superheroes, but Wonder Woman’s Costume has to be one of the most flashy and attractive ones ever! Which “bad guy” even wants to bother when this lady confronts you? This is exactly why Wonder Woman takes the number 1 spot on our list of top 5 female superheroes.

Guest Expressed: “5 Films That Are So Bad They’re Good”

Today Eli McGonagall points out a few terrible movies that may actually prove to be entertaining (sort of). Enter Eli:

There’s no doubt about it: some films are simply bad. They might be poorly written, poorly acted or just so camp that you can’t take them in any way seriously… but is this (particularly in the case of the latter) really such a bad thing? Here follows five films that, in my opinion, have gone far round the bad-o-meter that they’re reading as good as again.

Well, almost.

  • Catwoman

A pretty much universally terrible film; star Halle Berry even accepted the Razzie Award for Worst Actress in person. Deviating from the original story of Selina Kyle considerably, meek artist Patience Phillips is murdered by her evil boss only to return to live as the eponymous superheroine. I could say more about this one but you really have to watch it to fully appreciate its awfulness.

  • Flash Gordon

From the moment the film’s theme tune (performed by Queen) begins, you know that this movie will be nothing but camp. Both heroes and villains are portrayed with the latter firmly in mind: Flash defeats hordes of cars using the power of American football, while Max von Sydow’s Ming the Merciless is so fabulously evil it’s a wonder he doesn’t upstage everyone in the film. The film performed poorly almost everywhere except in the UK, where it was a huge success. Brian Blessed’s typically enthusiastic performance as Prince Vultan arguably seals the film’s reputation as a camp classic.

  • Snakes on a Plane

Seemingly following the format of most monstrous creatures films (X in/on a Y, X being the creature and Y whatever place the filmmakers decide would be most entertaining), albeit with a bigger budget, Snakes on a Plane’s name was purposely chosen as a homage to B movies. The film’s title summarises its plot rather well, with star Samuel L Jackson citing it as why he chose to take the role (and indeed enthusiastically rebuffed attempts to rename it). The film did pretty well at the box office, and received positive reviews from those who appreciated it for what it was.

  • Batman & Robin

Arguably the worst of the 90s Batman films. Tim Burton’s were pretty good (Batman Returns in particular), but things started going downhill with Batman Forever when directorial control was handed over to Joel Schumacher. With the campness amped way up (right up to fitting Batman and Robin with enlarged codpieces and adding prominent nipples to the sculpted pecs of their suits) and Schumacher urged to make the movie more toyetic (as in made in such as a way as to make merchandising easy), the film received largely negative reviews and 11 Razzie nominations (although Batman & Robin only picked up one in the end). However, Joel Schumacher, a big Batman fan himself, actually apologised to fans who found his rather less dark film disappointing, accepting the blame and stating that he would have much preferred doing an adaptation of the comic Batman: Year One.

  • Anything by Hammer Film Productions

Just go and watch one; you’ll see what I’m talking about.

Eli McGonagall works for a company that sells cheap dishwashers, and readily admits that there are some moments in these films where he’s not sure which he’d rather be watching.
