Monday’s Movie Madness gave us a huge match that I thought would have been much closer than it ended up being. Batman easily handled ‘Star Wars’ royalty Han Solo and will move on to face Alice in the next round. Today, another character from the ‘Star Wars’ universe faces a tough matchup. Darth Vader squares off against Dutch today.
Vader has considerably more killing skills than Han Solo, so he may fare a little better in the Cinematic Sixteen than Han did. This matchup pits Vader against a man who’s had his share of battling aliens. Dutch has experience going up against killer beings from other worlds. So maybe, just maybe, he’ll find a way to get past Vader.
Darth Vader – He already had to go through another hardened veteran in the first round. Rambo didn’t have experience dealing with killer aliens from other worlds, but he was a very tough first round opponent . Truthfully, Vader is one of the only characters in this tournament who could have beaten Rambo in Round One. In the second round, he absolutely crushed Scott Pilgrim.
Secret Weapon: The freaking Force, man. He can strangle someone just by thinking about it. He doesn’t even have to touch his opponent. Forget a hand-to-hand battle; Vader could crush your hands with his mind. Then what are you going to do? Huh?
Dutch – It’s been a relatively tough road for Dutch up until this point. In the first round, he had to get past the immortal Captain Barbossa. The next round, he showed that once again guns are much stronger than swords by taking out Inigo Montoya.
Secret Weapon: Not only does Dutch have a gigantic gun, but he’s also inventive. He’s able to set traps for his opponents, and find a way to survive no matter what. It’s possible that Dutch could lay a trap that Vader that wouldn’t ever see coming.
