Your favourite movie character?
« on: July 27, 2005, 06:17:23 am »
With the video game character/weapon threads going on, i'm interested to hear what everyone's favourite movie characters are.  Mine are probably:

Darth Vader (original Star Wars, not Hayden Christensen).

Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean - genious acting by Johnny Depp, he's hilarious in this film.

Tyler Durden - Brad Pitt is excellent in this, as is Norton, but i feel that Pitt's character just beats Norton's.


That's all i can think of for now.  Yours?

R2-D2, C-3PO as a pair, mostly in IV, V, + VI

Navin Johnson, The Jerk - Steve Martin

Can't think of anything else right now.

AAARGHHH!  damn popups!   i started a post only to have popups force me to close the window!


anyway.... the little version:

William Hurt ....  Duke Leto Atreides "Frank Herbert's Dune "
          great actor in a great role.
Kurt Russell ....  Snake Plissken "Escape from L.A. / N.Y."
          20th century gunslinger with a dose of bravado
Johnny Depp ....  Raoul Duke/Hunter S. Thompson "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas"
          Depp lived in Tompson's basment for months in is effort to get him just right!
Brad Pitt ....  Tyler Durden "Fight Club"
          his preformance is so good as Spoiler:Nortans Id

"6.4 Um's per minute" or "The Speed of Wright

The idea is to mix one ingredient that will burn very fast with a second ingredient that will supply enough oxygen for that burning. This burns so fast, it's an explosion.

Let me bracket a few movies and Years
Quint (Robert Shaw) in Jaws
Porter (Mel Gibson) in Payback
Edward Pierce (Sean Connery) and Agar (Donald Sutherland) from the Great Train Robbery
Jason (James Garner) in Support Your Local Sheriff "I'm just on my way to Austrailia"
'The Drifter' (Clint Eastwood) in High Plains Drifter

I'm trying to come up with favorite female characters for movies (not TV)(rather than run of the mill bimbettes with a couple lines) and I'm drawing a blank, but I'll edit or add later if one sticks out.

Chili Palmer - John Travolta *I like him in anything really*
Corbin Dallas - Bruce Willis/ Fifth Element
Riddick - Vin Diesel/ Chronicles of Riddick
Aragorn - Viggo Mortenson/ Lord of the Rings
Rick O'Connell - Brendon Frasiar/ The Mummy
Willy Wonka - Gene Wilder/ Willy Wonka the original movie
Madonna as Eva Peron in Evita *the only movie I've liked Maddona in*

might i recomend:

Ellen Ripley- Sigourney Weaver in "Alien/s 3 & Resurrection"
        pure Bad A$#!
Princess Leia- Carrie Fisher in "Star Wars ep:4/5/6/" & 3 ;D
        brother kissing aside, she sure is cute and deadly in that steel bikini ..... "God, how i want to be  C-3PO in some scenes"
Agent Clarice Starling -Julianne Moore/ Jodie Foster in "Hannibal & The Silence of the Lambs"
        much better than Will Graham (William L. Petersen or Edward Norton) at understanding Hannibal (Anthony Hopkins/ Brian Cox)
"6.4 Um's per minute" or "The Speed of Wright

Not all of them =).

But yeah, all you need is Legolas - Orlando Bloom and you'll have the whole set in there :P.

Hmm... i don't know about you but i'd take them both!

Kidding, Orlando tends to appeal to more women than Viggo i find (don't see why though, he looks about 12).

None of those characters really stick out in my mind, they aren't really anything outstanding or awe-inspiring. I'm sure I'll come up with one, but the ;eye-candy' aspect just doesn't work in my opinion. Angelina Joile in 'Pushing Tin' is memorable to me only because I knew someone just like her, but that really isn't noteworthy here.

Somehow I don't think Steve would go for a 'Hot Acting Totty' thread like they had over on the Silent Hunter 3 board.

Viggo all the way, I like him in Hildago too. Orlando is just too young looking as is Leonardo DiCaprio.

Tim Currey's Butler in Clue
Madeline Kahn's Mrs. White in Clue
