Five Disappointing Villain Comeuppance’s

When you have a good villain there is always something satisfying in their defeat. Whether they be a super villain or some generic bully, we always love to see the bad guy get his. Sometimes however, the final punishment for the villain is not satisfying. It’s either because there is hardly any punishment, or it goes so far the other way and you almost feel sorry for the poor person rather then happy to see him get his just deserves.

Now sometimes the villain defeat will be kind of small, but it can still work. The best example is from The Wizard of Oz. The Wicked Witch just gets water thrown on her, accidentally! But Margaret Hamilton owns that death scene. Her screams of “I’m melting!” are almost iconic, everyone knows it and says it. Same for Superman II. While I have my issues with that movie, the scene where Superman out thinks Zod isn’t big but it is sooooo sweet!

Here are five examples of what I mean. When the villain defeat was unsatisfying. There are spoilers of course and, just my opinion.

The Dark Knight Rises
I loved what that did with Bane, especially after what they did to him in “Batman and Robin”. Tom Hardy was fantastic in the role and every scene he was he ruled…until that last one. What a let down, not only is it revealed Bane is really just a glorified henchman for Talia, but he is defeated soooo easily! It’s one thing everyone pretty much agrees with, that scene sucked!

Welcome back to Underrated Trek, where I take a special look at Star Trek episodes that I love…which may not be the most popular or even liked by most.Today though I want to try something different. There are lots of DS9 episodes I never saw, as I’ve said was never a loyal fan, so for fun I thought I’d watch one of those episodes and give my thoughts on it. This is…

Ten Memorable Sitcom Marriage Proposals

There are lots of life events that almost every TV shows will give us, from child birth to  weddings to marriage proposals. After all these are supposed to be “real” people so its only right we see them go through these experiences. And when done right, they make us as happy as the characters are. And we even cry at them! The wedding proposal is a huge one, since it can go either way. But when it is a yes, especially when it is done with a couple we have been watching for seasons, it’s a true moment of joy for the audience.
