Poll Results: Favorite Breaking Bad Character + Weekend Roundup

A runaway winner this week:

Mike Ehrmantraut

– Mike Ehrmantraut: 5 votes
– Jesse Pinkman: 2 votes
– Walter White: 2 votes
– Saul Goodman: 2 votes
– Hank Schrader: 1 vote

No doubt about it, Mike is the man, and I can’t think of a better actor to play him than Jonathan Banks. My early prediction was that this would come down to Walter and Jesse, but I underestimated the power of everyone’s favorite cleaner, Mike. He didn’t even enter the show until the second season, and he dominated this poll.

On the downside, this poll had a pretty low turnout, and this means that more of you need to start watching Breaking Bad! Seriously, it’s quite possibly the best show currently on television. The first four seasons are available on Netflix Instant, and it wouldn’t take long at all to marathon them back-to-back. I guarantee you’ll be hooked after a few episodes.

This Week’s Poll: Everyone by now has probably seen The Dark Knight Rises, and I imagine that most of you are also quite familiar with director Christopher Nolan’s filmography. The man has an impressive resume, to say the least, and I’m opening up this poll to include ALL of his directorial work. What do YOU think is his best film? Something from the Batman trilogy? Memento? Inception? The Prestige? Or perhaps even the underrated Insomnia or Following? This one should have some interesting results to be sure.

No movie marathons this weekend. I was pretty busy for the most part but did manage to finally see The Dark Knight Rises on Friday night. It was worth the wait — a full review will be posted soon, likely tomorrow.

The only other film I saw over the weekend was Earrings, the new short film from Alex Withrow, the creative genius over at And So It Begins… Alex has been documenting the filmmaking process over the past year, offering a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the man in action. The suspense had been building until the final release on Saturday, and the finished product is stunning. Check it out for yourself on his Vimeo page.

I also played quite a bit of Dyad, the new psychedelic puzzler/racer for the PS3. I’m working on some of the trophy levels right now, and I should have a full review in the next few days. Keep an eye out for that!

How about you guys? Did you make it to the theater this weekend? Catch any good movies or play any games at home?
