Starship battles, romances with Hollywood starlets, delivering the perfect punch - all experiences we'll only ever live out via the glow of the silver screen.
Illustrator Aled Lewis has paid fitting tribute to some of the most iconic film and TV bust-ups in his series, Pixel Punches.
The brutal blows of Groundhog Day, Back to the Future and Game of Thrones have been translated from celluloid classics to pixelated perfection for Lewis' Gallery 1988 exhibition, Such Pixels.
You can see more of Lewis' work and purchase some prints on the Gallery 1988 site.
