On last week’s (title pending), Tank brought up the idea of favorite movie characters, and I was caught unprepared. There are SO many! Every movie brings another five to ten into play, but even if there’s just one decent one each movie, that’s still an enormous field of potential candidates. Granted, there’s only a handful of memorable characters a year, but as the decades roll by, they pile up!
Indy, Hannibal Lecter, Maximus, Ripley, Peter Venkman, I could rattle off dozens, without even thinking. Ferris Bueller, John McClane, Harry Potter… seriously, there are millions.
Who’s YOUR favorite? What character is most memorable for you? Why? What makes you prefer them to others? It’s a great discussion topic because there have been so many great ones over the years, populating so many great movies.
Let’s hear what your choices are! Who’s YOUR favorite movie character?
