Re: Favourite Ra's al Ghul in the media
I feel that if they had given R'as his signature cape and Lazarus Pit in BB, the film's RaG could have been the definitive one. But, Nolan's penchance for secularizing the material meant there was no way in hell they were going to appear in the films. Thus, my favorite is a tie between it and the Animated series, where the design and performance were perfect, but the scale of the League was missing; it was just R'as, Talia, and Bobo (or whatever the hell the muscle's name was.)
"I defeated your uncle Victarion and his Iron Fleet off Fair Isle, the first time your father crowned himself. I held Storm's End against the power of the Reach for a year, and took Dragonstone from the Targaryens. I smashed Mance Rayder at the Wall, though he had twenty times my numbers. Tell me, turncloak, what battles has the B---- of Bolton ever won that I should fear him?"
One of the best soundtrack sections. Ever.
