1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I like the first X-Men better, but not a bad list. Picking up on the Batman theme

    Top 5 Batman Villans (TV and Movies)
    1.) Joker (Cesar Romero)
    2.) The Riddler (Frank Gorshin)
    3.) Catwoman (Toss-up, Eartha Kitt or Michelle Pfiffer)
    4.) The Penguin (Burgess Meredith)
    5.) Joker (Jack Nicholson)


    I respectfully submit that there should be a villain from the animated series on there, which was the best animated comic book show of all time (which I used to watch everyday when I was 8 or so). I would probably go with Two Face from the series.

    Not sure about the Usual Suspects being overhyped...great movie, though.

    Top five Kevin Spacey films:

    1) LA Confidential
    2) Superman Returns
    3) American Beauty
    4) Glengarry Glen Ross
    5) The Usual Suspects


    Ok, honestly, you thought SUPERMAN FRIGGIN RETURNS was better than Glengarry/ and The Usual Suspects?

    I mean, I like it ok, I thought it was somewhat unfairly criticized (especially for plot inconsistencies - as if other Superman movies had none [​IMG] )

    BUT BETTER? Um. I'm going to call foul on that.

    How about Snatch? There wasn't even a naked woman in the fucking thing. I tried to get my money back but the attendant wouldn't listen to reason. How about a Halloween themed top 5: Top 5 most unoriginal costumes for women: 1) Witch 2) Cat 3) Stripper 4) Madonna - I still see tons of those fucking cones every year 5) Police Officer And a special addition for anything resembling a female World of Warcraft character.

    Snatch only counts as "worst title" when paired as a drive-in double feature with Dick. I remember working at the movie theater when that came out, and the matinee show, every day would be a parade of unsavory and unintentional jokes waiting to happen. "Two senior citizens for 'Dick', please" A pregnant lady walks up to the window alone. Her movie isn't even half over with yet. She can't stay because the "baby is restless" (in her belly, I assume) and is irritating her. Guess what? She needs a "Dick refund". [​IMG]

    Okay, fair calls both... on Superman Returns, not a better movie (my bad there) but I thought KS wore his role better, or stood out more from the rest of the cast (which was easy to do in Superman Returns). Plus, being a man with hair impairment these days, I thought it was bold of him to shave his head for the role.

    The women, too many better ones to mention, but my original theme was bad women falling flat at the box office (Catwoman, Charlies Angels 2, Elektra) the list ran short and I was at work and time was limited, blah, blah, blah.
