Do you have a favorite movie character?

Asked by gimmedat (3868 points ) November 10th, 2008

Not necessarily the actor/actress, but a character. I love the schoolgirl from Kill Bill, Vol. 1. She epitomizes what it is to kick @$$! She would have to be one of my all time favorite movie characters. What character(s) do you like?

Jareth: You say that so often, I wonder what your basis for comparison is?

Virginia Woolf played by Nicole Kidman in “The Hours”. I don’t know if her character could be categorized as fictional though, so I’ll pick another one, too.

Astrid Magnussen from White Oleander.

Igby from Igby goes Down.

Donnie Darko from Donnie Darko.

I identify with all of them in one way or another, so I’m naturally drawn to them.

Belle from Beauty and the Beast. I always thought she was so gutsy!

Jim from 28 Days Later. He’s just such a helpless cutie!

And, of course, pretty much the entire cast from Princess Bride. :)

Sam, from Ronin.

@seven: Braveheart isn’t a character, William Wallace is.

Oh, how did I freaking forget the Princess Bride?!

Bri_L's avatar

@ Shrubbery – Darn right Indiana Jones!

Also
George Baily
and
Jason Bourn

KatawaGrey's avatar

I’m going to take this time to shamelessly advertise that William Wallace is, in fact, a distant relation of mine :)

Bri_L's avatar

@KatawaGrey-I thought you typed with a bit of an accent! :-)

asmonet's avatar

@zack: HAHAHA, I used to love that commercial. I can’t believe that’s him. Thanks. :)

fred from drop dead fred I’d kill to have a friend just like him

KatawaGrey's avatar

@bri: I know!!!! I really want to. I saw a little part of it once and was very dissappointed to see that Mel Gibson was not outfitted in traditional Wallace plaid!

augustlan's avatar

Atticus Finch.

@Kata: He does wear a kilt though. It’s an excellent movie!

KatawaGrey's avatar

@aug: this is quite true, and Mel Gibson looks quite stunning in a kilt, but the scene I saw him in, he was wearing something tan-ish. My clan’s tartan is red and yellow. Here’s a link: http://www.scotsconnection.com/uploads/images_products/772.jpg

augustlan's avatar

@Kata: Link isn’t working : (
I’m part Scottish, too, but have no clue what my tartan might be, so I was really interested in seeing yours!

Allie's avatar

Augustlan: Atticus Finch, excellent choice. =)

augustlan's avatar

@Allie: He’s my default literary character, too…just love him.

KatawaGrey's avatar

@aug: ah, damn. Well, just type in “Wallace clan tartan” in the search bar, or just look at any thermos in America. :)

Mr. Universe from the movie Serenity.

shadling21's avatar

@tehrani625 – YES. Wish there was more of him in there…

tehrani625's avatar

@shadling21 Well he died so all I can do is wish for more of him. Although if I where him I would have hidden and let the alliance kill a robot copy or clone of me. Just for a cool plot twist if they ever make another movie or a second season of the show. And on second thought I would have had a better security system with auto turrets and things of that nature.

asmonet's avatar

@90s_kid: Imani Coppola sang Legend of a Cowgirl. She has new music she’s been making as one half of the group Little Jackie, in case you didn’t know.
