Just forget the words and sing along

So, I highly recommend picking up the 100th issue of ToyFare. In it, they list the top 100 geek moments. I'm not going to share all 100 with you, but I will share the top 10:

10) April 27, 1956 - The first Godzilla movie hits theatres.

9) May 10, 1975 - Monty Python and the Holy Grail hits theatres.

8) February 18, 1990 - The Simpsons premieres.

7) May 3, 2002 - The most-anticipated comic book movie of all time, Spider-Man, finally hits theatres.

6) The climax of Superman in which Superman, totally distraught over Lois Lane's death, flies off into space and turns back time to resurrect her.

5) Wolverine launches into his berzerker rage and takes down all of Styker's troops in X2

4) The climax of The Matrix, in which Neo finally believes that he is "the one" and launches into his final battle with Agent Smith.

3) "No...I am you father" from The Empire Strikes Back

2) Gandalf vs. the Balrog in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

1) Darth Vader takes down Emperor Palpatine, thus earning redemption, in The Empire Strikes Back.

It's a great list...not sure I'd agree with all their choices, but they do cover all aspets of geek culture: movies, TV shows, comics, video games, and toys.
