Batman Vs Batman: Which Actor Wore The Cowl Best?

With the Batman franchise ready for yet another reboot, now’s a great time to look back at the past incarnations of the Caped Crusader and ask: just who is best Batman of all time?

Though each interpretation is slightly different, there and certain qualities that are so integral to the character, they could very well make or break the success of an actor’s portrayal of the Dark Knight – fighting skills, detective prowess, cool gadgets, a way with the ladies etc.

The Hollywood News has decided to put this to the test, sizing up each big name Batman from the silver (and small) screen to find out who indeed is the best…

A pitiful score of 8 Batarangs leaves gorgeous George Clooney as the predictable loser, with Val Kilmer coming up the Bat-rear with a score of 20.

In perhaps the biggest shocker, current favourite Christian Bale only »

It’s the age old question: who is the best James Bond? And with Skyfall marking the character’s 50th year on-screen (check our review here), the question has never felt more pressing. To solve the conundrum, Thn takes a look at the six actors to have played the role, putting them through a gruelling cross examination and marking them out of five tiny golden guns on the things most integral to the character.

At last, we find out who is the best Bond, James Bond…

It seems that even 50 years on, Sean Connery is still the greatest James Bond of all time, and whilst he comes up short in the bum chin department, he’s undeniably a suave, well dressed, distinguished hard-ass. Whilst Daniel Craig may end up giving Connery a run for his money, for now let’s celebrate the original Bond with a vodka »

The new Elizabethan age: the arts, architecture, fashion and technology

30 May 2012 4:06 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The reign of Queen Elizabeth II has seen an end to the old certainties of prewar Britain – but a surge of achievements to be proud of

The arts: a golden age for British culture

By Melissa Denes

Elizabeth II's coronation was the first to be televised. Winston Churchill advised against it, but the Princess was keen. Did she have any idea how central a role television would play in her reign? Probably not, and an eternity of Royal Variety Performances is perhaps not the legacy she wants to hand down to her successors. But TV has become the dominant art form: its audiences are vast; it's an elastic, democratic medium that can do straight, silly, satirical, heart-breaking. It's also an astonishing archive: Michael Apted's 7 Up will be watched in 2212, when Simon Cowell's shows are barely remembered.

The second Elizabethan age has brought us rock'n'roll, punk, standup comedy, computer games, »
