<![CDATA[15 Movies That Should be Made into TV Series (Part 2)]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/15-movies-that-should-be-made-into-tv-series-_part-2_/andreww-curley
Continuing with the spirited trend to turn movies into television series, this is my 2nd list of movies that I think could work on the small screen. Vote up the ones you could see happening on TV.

http://www.ranker.com/list/15-movies-that-should-be-made-into-tv-series-_part-2_/andreww-curley,

Spy Kids
How about an action-adventure series for the kids?

Barbershop
A comedy series that centers around a barbershop, it's staff, and it's customers. It could be boring, or could turn out amazing.

Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen
This would probably be one of the easiest movies to turn into a series. I mean it's about a popular high school girl forced to change schools and the drama that ensues when she tries to regain her status. Plus, I think it'd work well with what Disney currently has on their channel.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
Would probably be a bit difficult to re-adapt this world for television, because they most likely wouldn't have anywhere near the same sort of budget needed for all the fancy special effects; but I think it's be fun to see a series based on Harry Potter. We all already know the biggest events that occur in the books/movies, but what if a series were to showcase their daily lives and adventures at Hogwarts with those big events serving as the main story arches that build up over the course of a season.

National Treasure
I would love to see this become an adventure treasure-hunting series.

Rat Race
This could be fun, a comedy adventure series about a group of strangers chosen to be a part of a treasure hunt elaborately set up by a millionaire with clues guiding them to the next to clue and so on and so forth. Along the way various obstacles will force the participants to give up or drop out; or do things they wouldn't normally do in order to get back into the race.

The Exorcist
I think this could follow the steps of Psycho into becoming a great dramatic horror series.

The Gift
Could make for a great supernatural detective series similar to Medium or Ghost Whisperer, but with a darker, grittier tone.

The Ring
If they can take horror movies like Hannibal and Psycho and turn them into fairly successful television series, then why not do one for The Ring? Could be an interesting little mystery horror series that maybe delves deeper into the origins of Samara or the well.

The Stepford Wives
What do you think? Can you picture this being a twisted version of Desperate Housewives?

<![CDATA[The Best Frontmen in Rock]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/top-10-lead-singers-in-rock-of-all-time
Giving out the title of best frontman in rock is like crowning someone the king of rock and roll. There are so many factors that go into deciding the greatest front man (or woman) in rock that dubbing just one the head of all rock royalty seems nearly impossible. And yet, like the Highlander, there can be only one.

What makes a lead singer the best frontman in rock? Is it the rock singer with the best stage presence or does being the front man of the best live band in rock history automatically propel you to the top of the list of the best frontmen in rock? Does being one of the greatest singers of all time get you the title of greatest frontman? That's up to the music-loving masses to vote on.

Who is the best lead singer in rock? Who is the top rock frontman ever? Who are the best frontmen in rock? This is the place to vote for your favorite rock singers and vote down the overrated rock singers who you don't think have a place among the greatest rock frontmen. If your favorite lead singer or frontman is missing from the list of the top rock frontmen, make sure to add them and get them in the running for the rock talent ever.

<![CDATA[The Best James Bond Movie Theme Songs]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-best-james-bond-movie-theme-songs
The best James Bond theme songs manage to blend perfectly with the Bond movie's opening credits (the title sequence). For Bond fans, the title sequence is extremely important, as it sets the theme of the entire film. This list includes most of the major theme songs from 007 movies, dating back to the 1960s, along with the artists and the movie titles (if they are different than the song titles). From the originals to the remixes from the famous djs around the world. Some of these 007 theme songs are great, and some are not great -- but which one is the best? That's up to you to decide, with your votes!

Typically, major music stars are recruited to sing the James Bond film these songs, and in 2012, Adele's song "Skyfall," from the Bond movie of the same name, was released. Adele is just one of the heavy hitting singers chosen to sing the title James Bond song. Others include Carly Simon ("Nobody Does It Better," from 1977's 'The Spy Who Loved Me'), Rita Coolidge ("All Time High" from 1983's 'Octop***y') and of course, the incomparable Shirley Bassey, who sang three James Bond Movie theme songs ('Goldfinger,' 'Diamonds Are Forever' and 'Moonraker').

Here's the thing: It's totally okay to love a James Bond theme song from some of the best rock bands of all time, even if you didn't particularly love the movie. When you vote, be sure to consider the actual song, not just the film as a whole.

Are you a 007 movie fanatic? If so, check out these lists of the hottest James Bond babes, the best James Bond cars and of course, the best James Bond movies of all-time. Enjoy!

<![CDATA[Best HBO Series Character]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-hbo-series-character/lanayoshii
HBO has put out some of the most innovative and character-rich original series over the years.  Some of their characters were heroic, some were deliciously evil and others just made us scream from injustice when their characters died. Some of the best characters were lead characters that carried the show while others were necessary, influential ones that helped to carry the storylines. Which of HBO's shows' characters were the reason that the series made us want to watch even more episodes?

<![CDATA[The Best Hitters in Baseball History]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-hitters-in-baseball-history
The best hitters in baseball history are those who hold the all-time hitting records in Major League Baseball, change the game as we know it today and are uncoincidentially among the greatest baseball players of all time. These sluggers dominated the hits during their respective times in the league and captivated audiences at the same time. If you were to pick a top hitter for your all-time top baseball fantasy team, you'd be silly not to select these best baseball hitters as soon as possible.

Interestingly enough, many of the best baseball hitters of all time are those who were active in professional baseball many decades ago. Pete Rose, Ty Cobb, Hank Aaron and Stan Musial all hold the top spots among the most hits ever recorded with Rose leading the pack at 4,256 over his career. Rose finished his career in 1986 and his record has withstood many valiant attempts to be broken in the years since.

But the best hitters cannot be defined by the number of career hits alone. On that stat, arguably the best baseball hitter of all time, Babe Ruth, would rank in the 40s. Ruth however holds top numbers for his home runs, slugging percentage, runs batted in and on-base plug slugging stats. Lou Gherig is another who'd fall into that category with his major league records for the most grand slams, a figure since topped by a great modern slugger, Alex Rodriguez.

So we're left with a conundrum. Do we deem those great players from yesteryear, like Willie Mays, Ted Williams and Shoeless Joe Jackson as the best baseball hitters of all time or do we give some love to those current top baseball players, like Barry Bonds, Albert Pujols and Derek Jeter, who have surpassed many of these older records? Tell us how you feel by voting for the best hitters in baseball history below!

<![CDATA[The Greatest Rivalries in Sports]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/greatest-rivalries-in-sports
The greatest rivalries in sports have pitted some of the best teams in baseball, basketball, football, and college against each other in a quest for eternal glory and bragging rights. The best sports rivalries span decades and even centuries as teams continuously meet in search of another check in the win column. Some of these match-ups pit the best sports franchises of all time against each other, while others are simply long fought feuds between cross-town competitors.

This list of the best rivalries in sports if restricted to teams only, and while there have been some great individual rivalries such as Ali vs. Frazier, Bird vs. Magic, etc, that is the topic of a separate greatest individual rivalries list. These are the eternal rivalries that make strangers hate each other based on an accent (Yankees/Red Sox), a home kit (Barcelona/Real Madrid), or a diploma (USC/UCLA). When it comes to these epic sports rivalries, you better pick a side because there's no neutral zone.

What are the best rivalries in sports? What are the top college rivalries? What teams are part of the top sports rivalries? These are some of the most anticipated sporting events of the year for die hard fans and casual viewers alike. If you know of a sports rivalry that's not yet on the list of the top rivalries in sports, make sure to add it so the people on each side of the contest can vote on whether they have as much ire for each other as the other teams on this list of the greatest rivalries in sports.

<![CDATA[Which Celebs Do You Think Have the Lowest IQ?]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/which-celebs-do-you-think-have-the-lowest-iq-/celeb-stalker
Which celebs do you think have the highest IQ? That's a good question! While few of these celebrities will ever take an IQ test and release their results, judging by the dumb things that come out of their mouths from time to time (or ALL the time), we can guess what those results would say. Have a favorite celebrity who you think is just a hair smarter than a box of rocks? Add them or vote for them right here!

It's no secret that beautiful blondes have a reputation for being a little lacking in the smarts department. Between Paris Hilton asking if they sell "wall stuff" at Wal-Mart to Jessica Simpson's confusion over chicken and fish, it's hard for the stars on this list not to play right into that stereotype.

But it's not just the ladies who make us feel really, really, really ridiculously smart in comparison. Justin Bieber, Charlie Sheen, Kanye West, and Ryan Lochte have all done their fair amount of things that make us scratch our heads in confusion.

If you need a little self-esteem boost, a moment listening to these celebrities, who may or may not have a really low IQ, will make you feel like a freakin' rocket scientist. Remember folks, think about the IQ of the average person, then remember half are dumber than that.
