Default Great movie characters

Thought it would be fun to go over some of the great movie characters. Great characters can be almost any role, large or small, but they tend to steal the scene.

Here are five quickies:

- Indiana Jones Raiders of the Lost Ark
- Val Kilmer as Doc Holiday Tombstone
- Antoniono Bandaras as El Mariachi Desparado
- Malcom McDowell as Alex Clockwork Orange
- Darth Vader The Empire Strikes Back

All of these movies I consider classics.

I have a lot of favorites, but how about Dennis Hopper in True Romance? Not a big part, but memorable. Lots of good characters in that movie, actually.

Johnny Depp in anything he does, the man is a great actor that seems to only take roles that are off kilt.

The one part about this movie that really turned me off, between Dennis Hooper & Chris Walken, how they brought up the **N** word and it wasn't any Blacks in the movie. I wonder why it had to be put into the script.

Just a thought!

He said it to piss off the Sicilian gangsters enough to kill him quickly instead of torturing him. He was pushing their buttons.

All true, but not as memorable as his character in David Lynch's Blue Velvet... Now that was some disturbing acting with the oxygen mask

I love Memento. Picked it up on Blu-Ray recently for super cheap out of the bargain bin at Best Buy. Have it on VHS around here somewhere. Skipped the DVD lol.
