Ryan’s Top 10 Heroes!

| December 8, 2011

I’ve done my villains list and with the holidays fast approaching it is now time to reveal my top 10 heroes from movies. Some might shock you but, you won’t be able to argue the heroics of all of the characters.

10. King Kong: Yes the giant ape is a hero. Remember he was forcefully removed from his home and put on display. He also loved Ann Darrow and fought a T-Rex to save her! He also met his demise trying to protect her from the Bi-Planes. And I ignore the 1976 version because it is lame.

Most heroic moment: Fighting two T-Rexs and snapping their jaws!!

9. Mickey Mouse: Yes Mickey is a movie hero. His cartoon shorts played in movie theatre’s in the 20’ and 30’s. He fought a giant and ghosts and did it with a happy go lucky attitude. His cartoons were fun and imaginative,  and wonderfully animated. Do yourself a favor and pick up the Walt Disney Treasure’s with all of Mickey’s films, you will be smiling.

Most heroic moment: Besting the Giant in Mickey and the Beanstalk.

8. Harry Potter: The Boy Who Lived is also an unselfish and loyal friend. He is also saddled with the knowledge of being the only one who can destroy Lord Voldermort. He also must go to school and deal with not only girls and grades but with the baggage that comes with being the most famous wizard in the world.  Did I mention that Voldermort and his followers are also trying to kill him, a boy!

Most Heroic moment: Turning Lord Voldermort into dust in their final battle.

7. Ellen Ripley: Bad ass chicks are awesome and no chick is more awesome and bad ass then Ripley. Answering a SOS call from a ship Ripley and her crew get more then the expected. But instead of being the movie staple of the women needing to be rescued Ripley is the one who does the saving. She kicks ass all over the galaxy.

Most Heroic moment: Battle Royale with the Queen Xenomorph.

6. Spider-Man: The most relateable super-hero of all is amazing.  Being given a great power Peter Parker abused it, but when his beloved Uncle Ben is murdered by a robber he let go, Pete decides he must also have great responsibility. He becomes Spider-Man, hero of New York and the  number one hero in our heart. Tobey Maguire’s Spidey is great and he nails the Parker luck.

Most Heroic moment: Spidey vs. Doctor Octopus on the top of a subway train, ‘nuff said.

5. Chief Brody: The mellow and great father is also a no-nonsense cop. When his town of Amity is besieged by several shark attacks, Brody closes the beaches even though it’s bad for the towns business. He then decides to catch the shark by going out to sea with the crazy Sam Quint.

And being able to survive that is heroic in it self.

Most Heroic moment: “Smile wide, you son of a bitch!” Boom! Shark dead

4. Yoda: Easy hero this choice was. Jedi master Yoda is small. He is old. And he is also the smartest and perhaps the strongest Jedi of them all. Wise and intuitive Master Yoda is the most respected Jedi of all time.

Most Heroic Moment: Yoda vs. Dooku, we see Yoda kick ass for the first time.

3. Indiana Jones: The super cool and total bad ass archeologist Dr. Jones is always traveling the world looking to preserve artifacts for museums. Along the way he runs into Nazis, Cults, and aliens. But he always comes out on top with his fedora and his girl.

Most Heroic Moment: Opening of Raiders, is still fist pumping great.

2. Ash: All Ash wanted was a quiet weekend with his girlfriend in a cabin, and instead was attacked by evil demons which he fights with his superior intelict and overall bravery. Ok really he is no willing hero but when deadites show up he kicks all kinds of ass. He also kicked their asses in the past as well.

Most Heroic Moment: Defeating Evil Ashs’ dead army.

1. Han Solo: Harrison Ford is on my list twice because both Indy and Han Solo are two of the coolest heroes ever. Han Solo might be a reluctant hero but when he needs to he is one of the greatest in the galaxy.

Most Heroic Moment: Saving Luke at the last second so he can destroy the Death Star
