The only downside, however, is that because of its size, the tattoo is mainly compatible with the torso. Despite this limitation though, the highly detailed design of the Joker’s evil grin makes this image one of the best pop-culture tattoos around.

A good Batman tattoo doesn’t always have to feature the characters. Sometimes, the Bat symbol on the chest is more than enough to make an impressive visual symbol. This particular tattoo depicts a well illustrated Bat symbol underneath torn pieces of flesh, giving it a very surreal appearance, particularly in light of its very realistic rendition. Also, the tattoo helps to emphasize the secret, dual nature of Batman/Bruce Wayne, which makes it a great symbol for those who enjoy the esoteric symbolism of the Batman series.

Unfortunately, because of its rather unique design, this tattoo is only suitable for the chest, which means that you can only get this if you have a lot of empty space on your upper torso.

Alkaline Water in the movies

Alkaline water benefits are touted by many naturopaths but to fully understand its impact on the body, you need to know about how acidosis occurs and its ramifications. Faulty eating, sedentary lifestyle and continual exposure to stress can wreak havoc on your body’s internal pH balance.

While the digestive system is primarily acidic due to the enzymes needed to breakdown the food, the rest of the body, including the blood, is acidic and any shift in this balance can have disastrous consequences because it quickly leads to hormonal issues and a host of afflictions such as:

  • Chronic inflammation
  • Weight gain
  • Slow metabolism
  • Bladder and renal problems
  • Premature aging
  • Hypertension
  • Weakened immune system
  • Compromised skeletal health
  • Joint pain
  • Lactic acid buildup
  • Low energy
  • Mood swings
  • Digestive problems
  • Yeast and fungal growths
  • Chronic fatigue

Therapeutic and Antioxidant Alkaline Water benefits

1. Alkaline Water helps Fight Cancer

As mentioned above, the negative oxidation reduction potential of alkaline water helps in fighting free radicals in the body. Free radicals have been documented as some of the most virulent carcinogenic (cancer causing) agents in the human body. As the antioxidants are in liquid form, they are quickly and easily absorbed in the body.

Helps with weight loss

Detoxification: Alkaline water is not only efficacious in removing acidic waste from the body but also it counters the toxins built up in the system due to the use of prescription drugs, the normal aging process as well as processed foods and artificial preservatives.

Doctor Octopus: Spiderman 2’s Sympathetic Antagonist

When talking about Spiderman movie villains, one of the most impressively played antagonists is Doctor Octopus. Played by English actor Alfred Molina in the 2004 blockbuster directed by Sam Raimi, Molina gave an incredibly sympathetic take to his role as the mad scientist.

One of the most memorable lines from Spiderman 2 is from Dr. Octopus, which goes: “Intelligence is not a privilege, it’s a gift, to be used for the good of mankind.”

The first time you see Alfred Molina as Dr. Otto Octavius is when Peter Parker is introduced to him by Harry Osborn at Oscorp. The movie gives Dr. Octavius a very humble and incredibly intelligent persona that makes him more humane. He even has an undeniable chemistry and connection with Peter Parker. And the fact that he talked about how he and his wife Rosalie met makes him an endearing character that makes you wish his doomed experiment will succeed.

But alas, Dr. Octavius’ ambition and his drive to defy science turns him into a madman when his sustainable fusion power reactor explodes, killing his wife Rosalie in an instant, and leaving him with mechanical arms fused to his spine. With an artificial intelligence on their own, the arms overtakes Dr. Octavius’ mind and turns him into a desperate and merciless villain that will do everything and anything to rebuild his tritium reactor.

Doc Ock, as he is called, terrorizes the city and of course, our reliable neighborhood Spiderman stops him in his tracks. But because you had a glimpse of Dr. Octopus’ character earlier in the movie, the mere sight of this broken man tugs on your sympathy. Molina plays the villain with such heart and character that many people will actually feel sorry for him rather than hate him. It’s this play of emotion that makes Molina’s portrayal of Doc Ock so impressive, making you wish Spiderman would just let him be.

In the end of the movie, you’ll see Doc Ock kidnapping Mary Jane Watson, and just as he is about to start his fusion reactor once again, Spiderman arrives and the two are engaged in an action-packed duel.

And in his last seconds of life, Dr. Octavius’ humanity is proven once again when Spiderman is forced to reveal his identity. Knowing that the real Dr. Octavius is still inside, Spiderman reminds him of that fateful day when they met, when the Doctor said that science should not be used for evil.

Dr. Octavius’ sacrifice of his own life to prevent yet another explosion shows you the true man behind the mechanical arms – leaving you with a slightly broken heart at the end of the film.
