Top 5 Unhappy OTPs

top 5 OTPs

There are spoilers ahead.

There are happy one true pairings but there are also some who never seem to catch a break. To top it off, the examples I will list in this post are pretty much ruined forever and can’t be salvaged from the wrecks they were thrown into by the worst evils in the world – the writers. And since shows are trained to ruin OTPs my list will be focusing on just that – pairings on television that never got a happy ending.

Top 5 Trios

Top 5 Trios

When I thought about my favorite trios, I came to a sudden realization that there aren’t many trios out there. There are many many duos and a lot of bigger groups of four and five but not so many threes. So since the characters more seldom come in threes, I decided to dedicate a Top 5 post to my favorite trios that have graced screens of all sizes.

Top 5 Superheroes

top 5 superheroesBy now I’ve finally seen The Avengers: Age of Ultron (expect a review next week) and to celebrate this fine occasion, I decided to rank my favorite superheroes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. First of all, it was so hard and secondly, that’s what she said! Seriously though, it was probably the hardest Top 5 list that goes up this week but I think this is currently how I feel about all the superheroes in this universe.

Top 5 Serial Killers

Top 5 Serial Killers

Though it is a joyous occasion, Mettel Ray’s big birthday bash starts off the Top 5 week with a rather bloody topic – serial killers! Then again, I’m a big fan of them, in movies and shows not in real life, and therefore it seemed fitting to dedicate a post to some of the most memorable ones I’ve encountered over the years. Let the Top 5 week here on Mettel Ray begin!

My Current Top 5 Ships on TV

top5

My addiction of TV-shows is obvious to everyone who knows me well enough to have suffered through my rant about a show or two. Yes, there are way too many shows out there and no, it’s not possible to choose specific ones because I like so many for so many different reasons. I’m undecided like that, I will like shows in their specific genre even if they aren’t as strong as shows in some of the other genres. Most often some of those shows will provide me with something special to gush about and in this case, I’m listing my Top 5 current ships – aka two people I want to be together forever and forever!

The Year I Made Contact – 1989

Eric from The Movie Waffler asked me to be a part of a blogathon and since I had never had the pleasure of getting that kind of an offer I said no. Just kidding, of course I was up for it and since The Year I Made Contact is all about the movies released during the year you were born I was extremely excited because 1989 seemed to be a great year for movies (as are all the others). As I am fairly new to blogathons I probably got way too enthusiastic about my little task and kept writing down movies (obviously with the little help of IMDb) and finally ended up with FOUR lists of top 5. Good thing about this post is that nobody is forced to go through all of my ramblings but you can always accept the challenge of reading it all!

So let’s get cracking!

1. Back to the Future II 2. Look Who’s Talking 3. Turner & Hooch 4. Honey, I Shrunk the Kids 5. Lethal Weapon 2

AWW-factor list includes all the movies I remember from my childhood. They might not be the best, they may not have been as influential as some other movies but they created memories. List has movies I still watch when I feel nostalgic (1-2), movie that still makes me cry even though I know it has a happy ending (3), movie that I remember better than high school math (4) and a movie that I thought suited this list perfectly because it reminded me what comedy used to be (5).

1. Batman 2. Back to the Future II 3. Dead Poets Society
4. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade 5. The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Love

WOW-factor list includes all the movies from 1989 that every person should at least encounter once in their life time (my personal opinion). I found it interesting that one of the movies probably gave a slight push for my likeness towards its director (1). As I ponder over the fact that Burton has sold himself short over the couple of years, going from art that describes him as unique to movies that are meant to make a lot of money, I still think he has a little piece of my heart and I would like to think that it all started with Batman. List continues with a memory that was already mentioned in the first list (2), Back to the Future II serves as a great beginning for my sci-fi love. Although there are no aliens, no supernatural creators or mysterious plot lines about multiple universes, the trilogy of traveling through time with a pimped car shows how fun sci-fi actually was and still can be. The wow-factor list is quite diverse when it continues with a drama (3) that showed how Williams can portray characters who make you laugh as well as give you something to think about. A bit of an easier choice would be an adventure (4) that gave me a thirst for mystery. Since it has the ex-Bond Sean Connery in the mix, I see no reason why this movie shouldn’t be in this column. Same goes for the movie that has another veteran who I love (5), Mirren was not only great then but is still one of the most interesting actresses of the present time.

1. When Harry Met Sally 2. The Abyss 3. Say Anything
4. Do the Right Thing 5. Driving Miss Daisy

HUH-factor list is more or less a list of movies I need to watch A.S.A.P! I have no idea how some of the movies have simply walked right past me although I’ve heard about them, thought about watching them and all other things related to them (1,3). Some movies I have a different kind of situation going on, I simply can’t recall if I have seen them or not because they kind of look familiar somehow but I was probably too young to fully grasp their meaning (2,5). Quite certain that I have been a bad movie person if I have skipped one of these movies (4) because I haven’t even heard of it before but I mean, I have a great excuse, I was four months old when it was released. This list just proves that there were a lot of good movies and many worth mentioning, that’s why I had to make so many top 5’s and this is not the last one!

To finish off the year 1989 is the WTF-factor list and this is simply a list with movies that had titles that made me literally speechless or gasping for air while I was laughing. And no, I did not make these titles up, they are actual movie titles (or translated into English) and while they seem to be awful movies they have really awesome titles!

1. How to Make Love to a Negro Without Getting Tired
2. Over-Sexed Rugsuckers from Mars
3. Real Men Don’t Eat Gummi Bears 4. Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death 5. Wet Pets in Prison

PS: Since Saturday is a special day (it follows the infamous Friday Rebecca Black was singing about) I was thinking about making it into a Saturday Special day which means I’ll be posting all kinds of posts similar to this one. If any thoughts about what you guys want to see next Saturday come to your mind, leave it in the comments. That’s an order! No, just kidding, but I would appreciate it a lot.
