10FTW


Formally Top 10, 10FTW is my version of a “Top Ten” list. Because the internet is swamped with “Top Ten” lists though (literally entire YouTube channels are dedicated to them), the format has pretty much been done to death at this point. So, rather than collate a list of the “Top Ten” of any one thing, I prefer to cobble together ten things that stand out to me, personally, hence “Ten For the Win”. However, because I find lists like this quite exhaustive (and, as mentioned, derivative), I don’t really write these with any kind of consistency.


10 FTW: Comic Book Crossovers We Need To See

If there’s one thing comic books allow, it’s the grandiose crossover between characters. Ever since Barry Allen met Jay Garrick all the way back in 1961 and introduced the idea of multiple parallel universes, comic book characters have existed in both isolated shared universes and travelled across a near infinite multiverse. However, while it’s relatively … Continue reading 10 FTW: Comic Book Crossovers We Need To See

10 FTW: Under-Rated Sequels

Sequels are funny things; you have to get the balance just right between providing everything people enjoyed about the first moving but expanding upon the plot and characters in a natural way. If it’s difficult for a lot of sequels to get this right, it’s even harder for third, fourth, or other sequential entries to … Continue reading 10 FTW: Under-Rated Sequels

10 FTW: Super-Suits

With over eighty years of continuous publication behind him, it’s no surprise that, over the many years and through numerous alternate realities and reality-shattering Crises, Superman has gone through more than a few wardrobe changes. Initially debuting in what amounted to a traditional strongman costume, Superman soon adopted the iconic “S” shield to uphold his … Continue reading 10 FTW: Super-Suits

10FTW: Dark Doppelgängers

If there’s one thing any hero can count on it’s that, at some point in their illustrious career, they’re going to have to face off against themselves. Sometimes, like with the classic Demon in a Bottle (Michelinie, et al, 1979) this is a metaphorical battle against their own inner demons and foibles but. More often … Continue reading 10FTW: Dark Doppelgängers

10 FTW: Batsuits

So, disappointingly, Ben Affleck is officially, 100% out as Batman. Despite my reservations about him being cast in the role, he delivered a really impressive performance as a tortured, grizzled Bruce Wayne who was driven to extremes after two decades of fighting an unwinnable war against crime in Gotham City. However, due to a multitude … Continue reading 10 FTW: Batsuits

10 FTW: Movies of 2019

As always, I made quite a few trips to the cinema this year; I saw sixteen movies in the end and, for the first time I can remember, actually had a couple of trips that resulted in less than enjoyable experiences thanks to disappointments like Glass (Shyamalan, 2019), Rambo: Last Blood (Grunberg, 2019), and Terminator: … Continue reading 10 FTW: Movies of 2019
