Movie Meme

My bloggy buddy DC Urban Dad (whom, incidentally, I have met in real life and think is pretty great), has tagged me in a blogosphere game of meme. FilmFather started this lil ol' meme, and since I love the movies, I figured I'd be a sport and play along. And for the record, this was way harder than it looks. Go on, try for yourself.

So here goes, my 10 favorite movie characters. Warning, my taste in movies teeters on the edge of my musical leanings. Don't judge me.

10) Margot Tenenbaum - I admit it, I can't stand Gwyneth Paltrow but I love her character in The Royal Tenembaums.

9) Kaiser Sose - I've never looked at a Quartet brand white board the same.

8) George Berger - I wanted nothing more than to let the sun shine in after I saw Hair with my best friend Nancy my junior year of high school.

7) Bill Lumbergh - Office Space holds the same cringe factor as #6. And boy, I sure don't miss cubicle hell.

6) Miles - Sideways was full of neuroses that made me simultaneously cringe and crack up. And I don't drink merlot either.

5) Marty - Oh, how Natalie Portman brilliantly had Timothy Hutton wrapped around her young little finger.

4) Danny Ocean - Heart be still.

3) Ferris Bueller - I saw this movie in German the first time I watched it, and it still killed me. Matthew Broderick rocks, even though he married SJP. I still don't get that match.

2) Napoleon Dynamite - Come on, Jon Heder is so freaking hysterical. A liger? Funny shit.

1) Holly Golightly - My all time favorite movie is Breakfast at Tiffany's. It's the only movie that's better than the book, and it's all because of Audrey.

So who makes your list?

Breakfast at Tiffany's is my favorite movie, too! I love Holly.

I also like (prepare to laugh):
Frenchy from Grease

Marc Darcy from Bridget Jones (sigh)

Ouiser from Steel Magnolias (she is who I will be when I'm old)

Erica Berry, Diane Keaton's character in Something's Gotta Give

I must mention Lloyd Dobler from Say Anything. What a sweetheart!

Julie Pippert said...

Cher from Clueless and everyone in Legally Blonde. I think that equals ten. :)

Didn't think anyone else in the world would think Marty is as cool as I do.

Still with the Holly Golightly, eh? Not that I'm surprised.

And yes, I needed this...now I have something to post!

Johnny Depp in the pirates movies,
George Clooney in O Brother Where Art Thou? Jack Nicholson in The Shining (how freaky he was for that part). Those are a few that stick in my mind.

Great list and BTW I think you basically kick ass :).

Love me some Ferris. Ah. I hope they never try to remake that one.

How fun! Yes, Danny Ocean (le sigh)--your list is great--I have to go with Erica Berry, too, and Han Solo, Vianne from Chocolat.
