Last week, Nostra put such a question in the post of the same name at his site My Film Views, providing us with an interesting list. I decided to create the similar one. To read Nostra's blog entry, click right here. By the way, you will also find a lot of film reviews there. You can follow Nostra at Twitter: @myfilmviews
What I can promise you about the list is that some choices of mine will make you doubt my sanity (here must be evil laughter but our Sound Department is celebrating the winter coming closer). Whatever, musings on the most interesting and vivid film characters were fun. Besides, they still haven't made a film about me for it is me who I'd love to be for the rest of the life.
10. EVE, 'WALL-E' (2008). There's always a place for animated features, and I couldn't leave them behind. I started thinking of a really nice film and character. And what came to my mind was, probably, the best animated film of all time (in my personal point of view) — 'Wall-E', that also has a distinctive female robot that lives through from being a cold unemotional creature to something that can feel affection and experience friendship.
9. Elizabeth Swann, the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' trilogy (2003, 2006, 2007). I was a fan of these movies, and they, in particular, developed my love to cinema, as I remember myself absolutely absorbed, watching special edition features about making the films. Besides, being a pirate sounds not bad, "A pirate's life for me".
8. Holly Golightly, 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' (1961). Thanks to Truman Capote, Audrey Hepburn and Huber de Givenchy, this movie character was created and immortalized. Well, maybe, not to Capote, as the novel heroine was absolutely different from the screen Holly. Nevertheless, no one can dispute that Holly Golightly is a beautiful character. At least, I don't recommend you to.
7. Miranda Priestly, 'The Devil Wears Prada' (2006). I think it's needless to explain: a portrayed by Meryl Streep she-devil. I think that for a day we'd like to be those who we are far from, so since I'm the one who wouldn't hurt a fly…
6. Neytiri, 'Avatar' (2009). I was just stricken by the beauty of Jim Cameron's planet Pandora.
5. Hermione Granger, the 'Harry Potter' franchise (2001-2011). Time for mocking you think? No. My first thought was to include Bellatrix Lestrange but I considered that there'll be enough dark characters in this list, that's why my ultimate decision turned to be in favor of Granger. Once again, as in the case of 'Avatar', I really like the world, created by J. K. Rowling. There are so few good fantasy stories, but the world of Hogwarts is among the best ones.
4. Velma Kelly, 'Chicago' (2002). Several years ago, there was a game at the official Oscars website, in which you could find out what movie character you are. That's what I got and I can't complain for I love this musical and I think it's the best Catherine Zeta-Jones' part.
3. Heath Ledger's Joker, 'The Dark Knight' (2008). To avoid misunderstanding, I don't want to be a man. I also don't want to sound over-feministic, but there are much more awesome male parts in the cinemaverse. The Joker in this Nolan's film is one of the most beautifully acted personas on screen. If it came to male parts, Christoph Waltz's colonel Hans Landa is the second beautifully acted persona on screen.
2. Ariadne, 'Inception' (2010). The architect in dreams. Plus, Leo DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon-Levitt hang around all the time. If seriously, I used to have some antipathy towards Ellen Page in 'Juno', as this film was good due to Diablo Cody, not Page. Anyway, 'Inception' made me look at her in a different way. Great character.
1. The Bride, 'Kill Bill: vol. 1, 2' (2003, 2004). Thank you, Quentin, for this character. Probably, the only one martial arts film I can watch.
What film characters would you like to be for a day?
