Megamind is a wickedly funny take on a superhero villain but who is your favourite superhero villain of all time? Maybe it’s because of their awesome power? Or perhaps it’s because of their insatiable ability to constantly challenge their nemesis? Or maybe, as in the case of Megamind, it’s because they’ve got a likeable side?

Blu-ray Monday Giveaway: Unstoppable

[tweetmeme source= “blurayreporter” only_single=false]For this week’s Blu-ray Monday we’re giving away a Triple Play copy of ‘Unstoppable’.

An unmanned cargo train carrying toxic waste hurtles across the Pennsylvanian countryside. With only veteran engineer Frank (Denzel Washington) and rookie conductor Will (Chris Pine) on hand to avert catastrophe, director Tony Scott gives us a master class in pulse-racing action and high octane stunts as the duo fight to prevent disaster.

Then for a second entry, leave a comment on this post answering the following question:

‘Unstoppable’ pairs well established screen actor Denzel Washington with newcomer Chris Pine. If film partnerships such as Al Pacino and Marlon Brando in ‘The Godfather’ or Matt Damon and Robin Williams in ‘Good Will Hunting’ show us anything, its that a novice can often bring out the best in a seasoned professional and visa versa. If you could choose a fledgling actor to star alongside a movie legend who would you pick and why?
