    with the exception of Transformers IV I have seen them all and it will undoubtedly remain the case. Not a big fan of that franchise.

    As Batman
    <ol>
    <li>Michael Keaton

    He wears my favourite suit, does a great voice, moves well (despite rather limited agility) and has a great facial expression in so far as we can see it.

    <li>Christian Bale

    The suit is awesome though not as "sexy" as Keaton's, his moves are cool and the voice doesn't quite bother me as much as it seems to bother others.

    <li>Val Kilmer

    Yep, there are moments in Batman Forever where I actually quite like this Batman. Until the moment when the updated, futuristic, nippled suit is worn, Kilmer's Batman is pretty impressive. His entrance at Nygma's party is just awesome.

    <li>Adam West

    Though many people seem keen on repressing our childhood Batman, in truth this version was quite faithful to the comics of the day. The suit is of course blue instead of black/grey and three quarters of Batman's face are perfectly visible, but it's got a nice nostalgic quality I'd hate to dismiss.

    <li>George Clooney

    This Batman suit is simply too "perfumed" for my taste. The nipples, the overly accentuated curves, ... nah, this ain't the bat, this is Robocop dressing up as Batman for a party.
    </ol>

    As Bruce Wayne
    <ol>
    <li>Keaton & Bale

    Both rock as the playboy millionaire.

    <li>Clooney

    Even though I hate that constant smirk on his face.

    <li>West

    Yeah, whatever.

    <li>Kilmer

    I generally like Val Kilmer but his Bruce Wayne couldn't have been further removed from the Bruce Wayne I know and love as a comic book reader.
    </ol>

    Special sympathy points go to Kevin Conroy! ;-)
  • As Bruce Wayne:

    1- Christian Bale
    2- David Mazouz
    3- Michael Keaton
    4- Val Kilmer
    5- Adam West

    The other guy doesn't even deserves mention.

    1. Batman Animated
    2. Stephen Amell (Nefju of actor who played Robin in Batman Forever and Batman & Robin playing Arrow in Arrow, very Batman releated with remembers to Batman , Begins/TDK)
    4. Michael Keaton / Val Kilmer
    5. Christian Bale.
    6. George Clooney. I wish there ask Val Kilmer back insteed or atleast made another one with Clooney for 2000.
    7. Batman 1966 tv series

    Nice to see Michael Keaton be another comeback actor after some other people like Kevin Costner. Also i am intrest what Ben Afleck made it from it, but i think it wil closer to Bale because of Nolan be the producer.

    Kevin Conroy. He IS vengeance, he IS the night, he IS Batman.

    There is no Batman without Bruce Wayne and there is no Bruce Wayne without Batman (in reality I'm too lazy to make a list for both characters :)) ). So:

    Michael Keaton: The original; best bat suit, and probably the best actor of the bunch.
    Christian Bale: Lots of controversy, but I thought his performance was great and I even liked the bat-voice! With regards to his batsuit, I loved it in Begins (see above), and was so disappointed when they "fixed" the "problem" of him not being able to turn his neck. ;)
    ---
    George Clooney: Good Bruce Wayne
    Adam West: Entertaining!
    Val Kilmer: ...

    EDIT: Batmobiles, because, why not.

    1. '89 (Keaton) Batmobile
    2. Animated Series
    3. '60's (West) Batmobile
    4. All the other junk
    5. Tumbler

    EDIT 2: Here's a photo so we can all look at it. :D

    Batman
    1) Keaton - He might be a little lacking in the physique department but he more than makes up for it with everything else.

    2) Bale - A total badass. I hate to say it but he could be my number one if not for the voice.

    3) Kilmer - Definitely had the look but sometimes came off as bland.

    4) West - I don't hate his version but he wasn't dark enough for his enemies to fear him. Instead, they are more annoyed because he is such a do-gooder.

    5) Clooney - It's just George Clooney in a batsuit.

    Wayne
    1) Bale - He played both the immature billionaire and the older, shut-in Wayne to perfection. He is a tremendous actor.

    2) Clooney - I know he didn't have good material to work with but I can buy him as Bruce Wayne.

    3) West - A moderately believable Bruce Wayne.

    4) Keaton - I do appreciate his take on the character but he just seems way too uncomfortable around other human beings.

    5) Kilmer - It just didn't work for me.

    Ah, somebody feels the same about the history of Batmobiles as I do.

    I always liked the Klingon battle cruiser designs from TOS
    USS Voyager has a cool design too.
    Enterprise 1701-E , now that rocks.

    1) The one I would like to pilot myself: X-Wing

    An X-Wing is so bloody cool
    I'm actually very excited it may be featured in the next Star Wars!

    Xwing-cover-art.JPG

    2) The one I would like to live in: Discovery One

    I'd love to talk to Hal all day long and simultaneously enjoy some alone time in this big vessel. Also, the design of this ship, as described by Arthur Clarke in the 2001 novel, is perhaps one of the most scientifically plausible of all.

    Honourable mentions go to:
    - Various Star Trek Enterprises
    - Prometheus
    - USS Sulaco
    - Serenity
    - Vader's Super Star Destroyer

    I love (in no order) The Falcon, the Galactica, the Vipers, Serenity, NCC-1701 & A, K'Tinga Class Cruisers, Discovery, Icarus (Apes), Freedom & Discovery (Armageddon), but, at the end of the day, my inner 11 year old knows just what ship he wants to LIVE on...

    The Millennium Falcon
    The X-Wing
    The Y-Wing
    The Enterprise (2009 film version)
    The Enterprise A
    The Enterprise E (my absolute favorite Enterprise)
    Super Star Destroyer
    The Twilight (Anakin's ship from Star Wars The Clone Wars)
    The Death Star
    Spaceball One

    Off the top of my head I can´t think of any space ship I wouldn´t like to be on. Space ships are cool :-).

    I´d prefer a big one, like the Enterprise, or the Nostromo, to a smaller vehicle like an X-wing. I think the big ones make me feel like on a cruise liner (except maybe the Nostromo and the Event Horizon) or an arc, whereas the smaller ones would probably make me feel claustrophobic, or spacetrophobic.
