Final Thoughts: You're damn right. The Colonel (not the KFC variety) is the runaway winner of this year's Best Action Hero/Villain/Superhuman.There's clearly an anti-Avatar vibe as well for this year's voters. I've been toying with the idea of doing a sort of TSR Winners/Best of Decade thing this summer. I think this category might put me over the top. Can you imagine The Joker vs. Colonel Hans Landa vs. Anton Chigurh? You can't. It's unpossible! Until this summer of course. Join the Facebook group if you want to vote on that. I'm leaning toward July. Maybe I'll start it around the Fourth. After all, when you think of America, you think of The Scorecard Review, right? (crickets). It's a little surprising to see Sherlock Holmes beat out Wikus and Bryan. I didn't see that coming. For such a blockbuster, it seems Sherlock Holmes has been a non-conversation. And sorry Denaldo (college friend), it appears your love for Optimus Prime is yours, and yours alone. One more thing ... the score of 9.4 is the highest achieved of any winners this year. I can think of only one winner that is more deserving.
