Gary Oldman's back on voice duty this week in animated alien yarn Planet 51.
It’s the second time this month Oldman's gone for the family vote, after playing three characters in A Christmas Carol.
But we remember when Gary Oldman was one of cinema’s baddest badasses – psychotic, dangerous and truly off his trolley.
But which of Gazza’s classic creations will last the distance when they’re up against each other? FIGHT!
Ludwig Van Beethoven - Immortal Beloved (1994)
There’s no doubting the power and passion of Beethoven’s music, but what of the man himself?
He was certainly one hell of a lover, with a string of stormy relationships behind him.
But the music always came first. You’d better not chatter when the great man’s playing or he’ll get classical on yo’ ass.
Pity he couldn’t hear it himself, mind.

Is about to get punk’d by...
Sid Vicious - Sid and Nancy (1986)
Not for John Simon Ritchie the classical route. Nah, he’s going to do it his way.
There was fuck fuck fuck-all else to do, so punk rock seemed a good idea even if he couldn’t really play.
Regrets? He’s had a few. He shot it up more often than was healthy. His fashion sense didn’t always come off. And stabbing his true love Nancy Spungen brought him bovver.
But is he ready to face the final curtain? Is he bollocks.

Let battle commence...
It’s the battle of the bands. Sid rocks up late, needs to get to the loo for a quick hit. He asks Beethoven...but since he’s deaf, he doesn’t hear him.
An insulted Sid headbutts him, sending him flying. Beethoven scrambles to his feet and pokes Sid in the eye with a conducter’s baton.
Sid wields a motorcycle chain and tries to strangle Beethoven – who grabs two cymbals and crushes Sid’s head between them.
Out comes the bass: Sid starts to bash it unmelodically, creating an infernal din. He doesn’t know that Beethoven is deaf. However, Beethoven can recognise bad playing when he sees it and promptly runs off at the tragic destruction of music.
