TOP FIVE FUNNIEST SCENES IN AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

One reason behind MCU's success is when they managed to get the right formula for their movie and that is by perfectly blending  the action with humor. They've made us laugh on the first film (remember that Hulk and Loki scene?) and now, they did the same thing with Avengers: Age of Ultron. Listed below are five of the funniest scenes in the recent Avengers movie! Enjoy!
TOP FIVE FUNNIEST SCENES IN AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON
(Author's note: This top five entry is listed subjectively)

TOP 5 FUNNIEST SCENE IN AVENGERS : AGE OF ULTRON
"WATCH YOUR LANGUAGE ~ CAPTAIN AMERICA"
If there is one guy in Avengers who can monitor the way you speak or communicate and correct you if you say something bad or wrong, that would be Captain America. As the leader of his team, it's not really surprising seeing him paying attention to his member's language. It was just fun joke about language at the start of the film where Captain America telling Iron Man to watch his language but the fact that it persisted through the entire film made it great! It is even more hilarious when every one else on the team poked fun about him even Nick Furry!

TOP 4 FUNNIEST SCENE IN AVENGERS : AGE OF ULTRON
"NO ONE WOULD KNOW ~ HAWKEYE"
We all know that Hawkeye plays a very crucial role in Avengers : Age of Ultron compare to what he had on the first film. He had so many great moments in this film that made us love his witty character even more not to mention his surprising revelation about his personal life. One of the funniest scenes in the movie was Hawkeye and Quicksilver trying to one up each other. There was a scene where Hawkeye playfully said (while pointing his arrow to Quicksilver) "I could shoot him right now and no one would know. If they miss him and ask, I would just say, oh, last time I saw him, Ultron was sitting on him" 

TOP 3 FUNNIEST SCENE IN AVENGERS : AGE OF ULTRON
"BOOM, ARE YOU LOOKING FOR THIS? ~ JAMES RHODES"
There are two funny James Rhodes scenes I like on this film and they were both hilarious. First is when he attended the party and telling some of his extreme adventures to Tony Stark and Thor and ending it up with "Boom are you looking for this", hoping to get some cool response from the two instead, what he got is an awkward silence. He tell the same thing with other guess and they all laugh...maybe the joke was not really effective for the superheroes. Another funny scene from him is when he finally got his part during the Ultron fight. Some of Ultron's robots attempted to escape but before he show off his great skills and impress others, Vision swept them off in no time and all he can say is.. "Now what?" (disappointed)

TOP 2 FUNNIEST SCENE IN AVENGERS : AGE OF ULTRON
"I'M SORRY ~ IRON MAN TO HULK"
Hulk vs the Hulkbuster is probably one the greatest scenes in the movie but it is also one of the funniest at some point especially when Iron man is trying to tame down the raging hulk by punching him repeatedly and taking advantage of his position why saying “Go to sleep, go to sleep, go to sleep”, hoping that would this would tame the Hulk down. What makes it hilarious is when the Hulk loses a tooth and Iron Man gently say "I'm Sorry" and that moment was just priceless. 

THE FUNNIEST SCENE IN AVENGERS : AGE OF ULTRON
"HAMMER LIFT SCENE"
Nothing can be funnier than the Hammer Lift scene where Thor dared everyone to lift his hammer and see if they are truly worthy. From Hawekeye, to Bruce Banner, to Iron Man and to Captain America, they all tried their best but the moment Captain America attempted to lift the hammer and it barely moves, Thor's reaction was just priceless. The hammer thing brought another hilarious scene when Vision was able to lift it effortlessly and Thor was seemingly speechless about it. Another thing is during the last part of the movie when Captain America and Tony Stark argued if the hammer can be lifted by the elevator!

How about you, what's your favorite funny scenes from this movie?

After listing down five of the greatest hair manipulators in anime, here comes another list of characters that can manipulate their own hair and use them as their weapon but this time, we will feature characters from video games. These women never really had a bad hair day since they can manipulate their own hair as if their hair has a life of their own. Listed below are five of the best hair manipulators in the world of gaming. Enjoy!
TOP FIVE BEST HAIR MANIPULATORS IN GAMING
(Author's Note: This entry is listed subjectively)

TOP 5 BEST HAIR MANIPULATOR IN GAMING
"AKANE SATOMURA"
(ETERNAL FIGHTER ZERO)
Akane Satomura is one of the playable characters in a 2D fighting game known as Eternal Fighter Zero. She may look so harmless and innocent but she got a monstrous power that can knock down opponents easily. Akane is an elegant fighter who uses her shapeshifting hair as a weapon. Her hair gives her a decent range, and her multiple Leaps give her a sense of unpredictability. Eternal Fighter Zero is a crossover fighting game that gathers different characters from different game and Akane came from a visual novel One : Kagayaku Kisetsu


TOP 4 BEST HAIR MANIPULATOR IN GAMING
"MIDNA"
(LEGEND OF ZELDA: TWILIGHT PRINCESS)
Midna is one of the main characters in the 2006 Nintendo game, Legend of Zelda : Twilight Princess. She is the twilight princess which at first seems to be a strange, dark creature with an agenda of her own and little regard for Link (that explains her evil looking appearance) yet she eventually ends up changing her attitude towards those who are willing to help her. Midna has two forms including her real human form and she got so many skills too but one of the most notable skills she has especially when on her imp monster form is her ability to manipulate her hair. She can move and use it as a weapon and as a shield. This ability was merely emphasized when she made a crossover to Super Smash Bros!

TOP 3 BEST HAIR MANIPULATOR IN GAMING
"SINDEL"
(MORTAL KOMBAT)
Probably the most badass and most aggressive fighter on this list is the Mortal Kombat gal, Sindel!In spite of her gloomy, gothic appearance, Sindel is benevolent in nature. She rules the realm of Edenia alongside her daughter, Princess Kitana. Sindel's power appears to be more one of an inner, ethereal nature in more than one way. She is an excellent fighter and one of her mystical powers is her prehensile hair which can be used as both a throw and a finisher. She wraps her opponent in her hair and sends them flying to the other side of the arena. As for her Fatality move, Sindel wraps her opponent in her hair, then pulls it back quickly. The victim spins at an impossible speed, until bones and blood spurt out, leaving nothing behind.

TOP 2 BEST HAIR MANIPULATOR IN GAMING
"MILLIA RAGE"
(GUILTY GEAR)
I personally think that Millia is one of the cutest gaming character ever. The first time I saw her in Guilty Gear, I instantly fall in love with her (yes, girls with long hair is my weakness LOL).  She is one of the playable characters in a 2D fighting game , Guilty Gear and she fights with the skills of an assassin, using her magical hair as a weapon. Millia uses her hair, infused with the Forbidden Beast Angra, that is amorphous in nature and can transform to help in melee combat and ranged combat the many odd shapes it has taken in game include a sword, a harp, a unicorn etc. Her hair can also allow her to fly turning into wings.

THE BEST HAIR MANIPULATOR IN GAMING
"BAYONETTA"
(BAYONETTA)
Here comes the hottest cougar in gaming history, Bayonetta from the game of the same name. Well her real name is Cereza. She is a coquettish and mysterious Umbra Witch, who possesses a remarkable talent for the Bullet Arts and is the bearer of the Left Eye, that oversees the darkness. He suit is actually made up of her hair that is why her outfit becomes more revealing when she uses Wicked Weave techniques which uses her entire long and manipulative hair. Bayonetta's strongest attacks transform her hair into giant boots, fists or monsters that assault the enemy. 

****************
Othe hair manipulators that are worthy to be mentioned includes Dixie Kong of Donkey Kong, Shantae (picture above) of Shantae and Rapunzel of Valkyrie

TOP FIVE BEST CHUCKY MOVIES

Okay, so we just had a Chucky movie marathon so I can finally judge which Chucky movie is the best based on my personal opinion. Child's Play is basically a horror film franchise created by Don Mancini. So far, there are six slasher films were made and another one in development. Chucky has become one of the most iconic horror movie characters lining his popularity along with others like Freddie Krueger, Jason Voorhees and more. Now, allow me to list down the Top Five Best Chucky Movies (from worst to best).
TOP FIVE BEST CHUCKY MOVIES
 
(note: this entry is listed subjectively)

TOP 5 BEST CHUCKY FILM
"SEED OF CHUCKY"
 Seed of Chucky turned the slasher film into a horror comedy. The plot wasn't really engaging but if you are looking for brutal death scenes, this film will spare you some of the franchise' bests. The event in this movie took place six years after the Bride of Chucky where Glen, the son of Tiffany and Chuky was first revealed. It turns out that Glen somehow has a split personality and is having issues with his sexuality. Glen is kind yet coward and doesn't like violence at all while Glenda is more like his father. The film also spoofs other horror films from Psycho to The Shinning. Britney Spears was even killed by Chucky which is really not necessary to be included in this film at all. Interestingly, the film also feature Jennifer Tilly which happens to be the voice behind Tiffany from the Bride of Chucky. 

TOP 4 BEST CHUCKY FILM
"CHILD'S PLAY"
 
The film that started it all, the one that ruins our childhood and the one that changes the way we look at realistic-looking dolls! Child's Play is the first film from the franchise and the one that reveals how did Charles Lee Ray managed to get his soul into a Good Guy Doll. The series originally started out as straight horror with the first installment which appears to have more psychological horror elements. There is also less fatality yet the idea of having a killer doll made us jump out of our seats the first time this film was released. 

TOP 3 BEST CHUCKY FILM
"CURSE OF CHUCKY"
We all thought that Seed of Chucky put an end to the franchise after such a disappointing plot and negative feedbacks but Curse of Chucky proved us wrong. No, it will not focus on Glen which is a good thing and instead, it will take us back from the root of all this evilness. The story behind Charles Lee Ray past and the revealing why he is being chased on the first film is such a very creative idea. The story will take place Twenty-five years after the first film and four years after the fifth film, Chucky is delivered to the family home of Nica and Sarah Pierce, where Chucky terrorizes and kills the family one by one. It was really an engaging plot and the fact that they somehow eliminated the comedy and humor and made this film a full pledge horror is really a smart move. Tiffany and Andy Barclay also made a brief appearance in this film. 


TOP 2 BEST CHUCKY FILM
"CHILD'S PLAY 2"
There's really something in Child's Play 2 that makes it really remarkable. I personally think that this film outshines the first film in so many ways. First, Chucky was able to establish himself as a real scary killer doll and he let us know what exactly he is capable at. It has become more brutal but that's a good thing for a horror film and it has become more intense and terrifying at some point. The toy factory scenes were just epic and simply unforgettable. This film made people realize that Chucky will definitely go a long way! 

THE BEST CHUCKY FILM
"BRIDE OF CHUCKY"
I love Jennifer Tilly and I love Katherine Heigl so please excuse me for being bias for this one! However, regardless of who play the roles of Tiffany and Jade, Bride of Chucky remains one of the best installment from the franchise. Child's Play 3 was extremely horrible and it is not really surprising that it is not on my list but what do the directors and writers need to come up with a nice plot that will put Chucky back to the limelight after a disastrous film? Why not give him a bride? It was insanely brilliant that offers a drastic change to the franchise. The film surprisingly managed to blend the horror and comedy perfectly well!
