Top 50 Favourite Movie Characters - Raymond Shaw.

Portrayed by Liev Schreiber in “The Manchurian Candidate”. Very underrated remake, in my opinion. I’ve not seen the original but if it’s anything as good then, well… it’s a very, very good movie.

“He’s a fine soldier, and my friend. And if his slim hold on sanity requires that I tolerate his delusions until he can get help, I’ll do it, it doesn’t diminish me and I’m not afraid of him.”

21) Aragorn ~ The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Rings, The Lord of the Rings: Two Towers, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

“Hold your ground, hold your ground! Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of woes and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you *stand, Men of the West!”

#15 - Edmund Pevensie (The Chronicles of Narnia)

First, because even in the book he was the one who really got the most character development, and that’s one of the things I really enjoy about a movie or character. Edmund is strong and mature and just, but he’s also funny and sarcastic, which I LOVE! And he’s played perfectly by Skandar Keynes.

Top 50 Favourite Movie Characters - Chuck Barris.

Portrayed by Sam Rockwell in “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind”.

“I came up with a new game-show idea recently. It’s called The Old Game. You got three old guys with loaded guns onstage. They look back at their lives, see who they were, what they accomplished, how close they came to realizing their dreams. The winner is the one who doesn’t blow his brains out. He gets a refrigerator.”

20. Rose DeWitt Bukater (“Titanic”)

A woman’s heart is a deep ocean of secrets. But now you know there was a man named Jack Dawson and that he saved me in every way that a person can be saved. I don’t even have a picture of him. He exists now only in my memory.”

21. Rory Gilmore (“Gilmore Girls”)

I live in two worlds. One is a world of books. I’ve been a resident of Faulkner’s Yoknapatawpha County, hunted the white whale aboard the Pequod, fought alongside Napoleon, sailed a raft with Huck and Jim, committed absurdities with Ignatius J. Reilly, rode a sad train with Anna Karenina and strolled down Swann’s Way. It’s a rewarding world, but my second one is by far superior.  My second one is populated with characters slightly less eccentric, but supremely real, made of flesh and bone, full of love, who are my ultimate inspiration for everything. Richard and Emily Gilmore are kind, decent, unfailingly generous people. They are my twin pillars, without whom I could not stand. I am proud to be their grandchild. But my ultimate inspiration comes from my best friend, the dazzling woman from whom I received my name and my life’s blood, Lorelai Gilmore. My mother never gave me any idea that I couldn’t do whatever I wanted to do or be whomever I wanted to be. She filled our house with love and fun and books and music, unflagging in her efforts to give me role models from Jane Austen to Eudora Welty to Patti Smith. As she guided me through these incredible eighteen years, I don’t know if she ever realized that the person I most wanted to be was her. Thank you, Mom. You are my guidepost for everything.
