BatI love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Silent Hill

  1. Mines is a bit of an obvious choice but I’ll have to go for Ripley from the “Alien” franchise. I love her character development throughout the franchise, I thought she matured pretty fast and became really kick-ass towards the end of the franchise. Especially in ‘Aliens’ and ‘Alien Resurrection’. I think her courage and strength is admirable and I feel that she is a good role model in some messed up way haha. Thanks for this opportunity.

  2. The lead in Starcrash. Marjoe Gortner is one of the few actors I am convinced I could do a better job than (although, to be fair, I wasn’t born at the time, which gives him a very slight edge). It’s terrible anyway, so there is no way I could ruin it either. At least not more than Marjoe did already.

    Plus, I could have been hanging with Caroline Munro, the Hoff and the always awesome Christopher Plummer while bouncing around between takes on the trampolines they were using for the awful stunt work. That’s just the definition of fun isn’t it? Trampolining with the Hoff?

  3. Lieutenant Uhura in Star Trek. She kissed James T Kirk!

  4. Han Solo – I’d get to pilot the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy, kick some serious Imperial butt…and, of course, kiss the very attractive Princess Leia!

  5. Alice in Resident Evil because she gets to kick ass !

  6. David in Prometheus for being the best Android in it.

  7. Katniss Everdeen in Hunger Games, because she just kicks arse, shes brave but there is a soft side to her, and she shows everybody what is what

  8. Captain America – he’s awesome, who wouldn’t want to be him!

  13. Linda Hamilton’s character in the Terminator movies – what a gal 🙂

  14. Professor Quatermass – the intelligence and using science against alien forces.

  15. Han solo from Star wars, I love the films so this would be great traveling planet to planet.

  16. Jack O’Neil from Stargate 🙂 legend

  17. Ming the Merciless: the archetypal villain what an absolute hoot to play that must have been.

  18. It would have to be Ripley from Alien, she was one tough lady 🙂

  19. Any male character opposite Jane Fonda in Barbarella, for obvious reasons 😉

  20. My wife suggests I would be a perfect c3po. Skinny, pedantic, precious and a know-all. Then again, she may be a perfect R2D2…..!

  21. Tilc from stargate

  22. princess leia to ride a speeder bike

  23. Captain Kirk so i could go anywhere in the universe meet all kinds of aliens and visit loads of different planets

  24. Dr. Ellie Arroway from Contact. She travelled through space and met aliens and had the coolest job ever.

  25. Ripley from the Aliens films – she is an Icon, even if I could just utter the words ‘Leave her alone you bitch!’…

  26. Gort in ‘The Day the Earth Stood Still’, just so I can go around saying ‘Klaatu barada nikto’.

  27. E.T. – Have great fun travelling to far off planets and then you get to go home afterwards.

  28. Neo in the Matrix because he is the one

  29. Spock in Star Trek because I can say “Live long and prosper”

  30. I’d love to be Arnie’s Terminator character in the first film. Being a female Terminator I would have got the job done very quickly as I have more smarts. I know you’ll say it didn’t work in Terminator III but she was a real dumb blonde 😉

  31. I would have loved to be Dana Scully in the X Files. She was fab – and working alongside Mulder would have been a dream!!

  32. The terminator – unstoppable

  33. Korben Dallas in the Fifth Element – he just seems to have a great time!

  34. Got to be Ripley in Alien’s trilogy for me, and I would have made sure Jones the Ship’s cat was safe too. (We had a cat named Jones)

  35. Kirk in Star Trek Into Darkness – reason….Alice Eve!

  36. Lister from Red Dwarf.. he was so laid back, he was horizontal, great life.

  37. Ellen Riley from the Alien films because she’s smart, strong and fearless.

  38. Princess Leia, because she is royalty that kicks butt 🙂

  50. Hal from 2001: A Space Odyssey … I’m sorry Dave, I can’t do that …

  51. Would love to be ALIENS Ripley

  52. Ripley – she’s amazing and brave and strong

  53. When Ellen Ripley first appears in Alien, she’s a tough, capable warrant officer more than up to the task of challenging her captain and keeping the rest of the crew in line. By the time the credits roll she’s evolved into a stone cold survivor able to fend off homicidal androids and dispatch aliens with aplomb. Her transformation in the first film is only surpassed by the one that was to come in the sequel, when she would go from sole survivor to one-woman annihilator. By the time the Hadley’s Hope reactor blows, Ripley has succeeded in decimating an alien horde all by herself where an entire squad of very tough marines failed.

  90. Ironman, imagine being able to fly, move mountains and be completely invulnerable.
