It’s another Sunday and that means it’s time to visit another segment of Who’s Your Favorite? Today, however, is rather special for Star Wars fans around the world because it is the late-great Carrie Fisher’s birthday (she would’ve been 62.) So, to honor the woman who has brought so many smiles to people across the globe, she is the subject of today’s Who’s Your Favorite?
Now, Leia has countless memorable moments during her time in this franchise but I’m going to take at least one exciting moment from each film that she’s graced for this list. Enjoy!
1. A Rogue One Surprise
Rogue One brought some fantastic surprises near the end of the film as it swiftly led into A New Hope‘s story and one of those shocking reveals was CGI Leia. Not only was it brilliant but it proved that technology could be used in truly exciting ways for future Star Wars films.

Harry Potter is filled with awesome characters, fantastical creatures, and plenty of awe-inspiring magic. But, in terms of characters, there are a LOT of them that I could put on this list. So, to keep it simple, I’m just going to list the three main characters; Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, and Ron Weasley. They will be the subject of this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? I hope you enjoy!
The famous Harry Potter. The boy who lived, the chosen one, Harry has been destined for greatness ever since he was born and his journey was not only miraculous but inspiring as well. He’s heroic but that didn’t mean he never had doubt in his abilities or his goodness. The road was rocky and often frightening at times and yet Harry still managed to defeat the odds and save the Wizarding World from Voldemort’s evil.
Harry is one of the greatest heroes, in my opinion, of all time.

Solo: A Star Wars Story just recently came out on Blu-Ray and that means it’s available to watch whenever I may please. It’s a great film too. It’s a riveting adventure from beginning to end and truly captures the essence of what Star Wars films are all about. But what makes it such a fun installment to Star Wars? The film’s various scenes of course. From beginning to end this movie deals out incredible moments that will bring a smile to any casual Star Wars movie watcher’s face. So, on this week’s segment of Who’s Your Favorite, I’m asking you what your favorite scene in Solo is? Here are the film’s most important moments.
The Corellia Speeder Chase
The film doesn’t waste time getting to the action and the speeder chase that takes place as Han and Qi’ra strive to escape Corellia is beyond awesome. It features Han’s incredible piloting skills before he got his hands behind the controls of a ship complimented with an upbeat musical score that made the scene even more riveting.

The X-Men are an awesome array of unique characters with incredible abilities. It’s only until recently that I’ve begun to actually care and pay attention to the different heroes and I have to say, they’re pretty awesome. Their movies aren’t as great or easy to follow (timeline-wise) as the MCU movies but if you like superheroes there are tons of heroes to get behind in this franchise. With this many cool characters to enjoy there will always be debate of who’s the best of the X-Men. And that’s why they are the topic of this week’s segment of Who’s Your Favorite? Here are the characters.
(My X-Men knowledge is limited so I will be listing the mainstream characters that I know.)
Cyclops has always been a cool character because of his interesting eye beam ability and the same can still be said from this most recent rendition of the character. While I don’t know much about the X-Men I knew who Cyclops was in my younger age and that shows the impact this hero had on me as a child.
Mystique is easily one of the coolest concepts of a character in the superhero world. The fact that she’s this shape-shifting alien-ish sort of being is remarkable awesome and it’s what makes her so cool. She’s also a great fighter as well. All in all, Mystique is pretty cool.

Obi-Wan Kenobi is one of the most beloved Star Wars characters for one simple reason; he’s awesome. He wowed fans when he was introduced as the Star Wars version of the Wizard Merlin in A New Hope. And he was easily the coolest character in the often harangued prequel trilogy. So, on this week’s segment of Who’s Your Favorite I’m tackling one of the greatest Jedi that has ever lived; Obi-Wan Kenobi. Enjoy!
Classic Obi-Wan Kenobi
Obi-Wan Kenobi might’ve died in A New Hope but he lived on in ghost form throughout the classic trilogy, randomly delivering Luke wisdom and being awesome. One of my favorite scenes in The Empire Strikes Back is when Obi-Wan Kenobi visits Luke in Hoth. It’s the first time we see Obi-Wan in physical ghost form and it’s always fascinated me seeing him standing in the snowy gloom telling Luke to go to the Dagobah system. Old Obi-Wan is awesome.

Groot is one of the most unique characters in the MCU for his tree-like form and his simple “I am Groot” vocabulary. When I first saw him I didn’t know what to make of the tree hero but now I can’t imagine the Marvel Cinematic Universe without him. So, on this exciting week of Who’s Your Favorite it’s all about the Groot. I hope you enjoy. 🙂
When Groot first came onto the Marvel scene he immediately attracted the love of most fans with his Chewbacca-esque personality and role within the Guardians of the Galaxy. He was sweet, at times disturbingly violent despite his benevolent disposition, but most importantly, he was as heroic as any hero has ever been.
He sacrificed his life to save his friends and it honestly is one of the bravest moments from any hero in the MCU. Now every time I watch that moment when he says to Rocket, “We are Groot” I get a little teary because he was so cool.
I Am Groot. Translated: RIP Classic Groot.

Batman is one of the coolest fictional characters to ever be conceived on the big screen. Before I knew Iron Man and Captain America and Wonder Woman I loved Batman. Batman was, and still is, one of the coolest superheroes ever created and these three gentlemen have played the iconic role the best.
The “Who’s the best Batman” debate can get a little heated and is a topic that will last for a long while between avid superhero fans and so I decided I wanted to make it the topic of this week’s segment of Who’s Your Favorite? Enjoy.
