Screen Characters Blog Hop

The idea behind this blog hop, is to name my favorite Movie and TV characters then nominate others to do the same. I’m going to take what I now call ‘The Dena’ and just invite others to do the same if they want to, then I’ll link you up if wanted too. Dena recently posted hers and I loved reading them, you can read them here. So, now I’m going to do mine, becauseΒ  – how awesome!

Felicity Smoak – Arrow.

felicity

She’s awesome. A computer geek and an all round sweetheart, there is nothing to dislike about this woman. Plus – she’s really good at keeping secrets.

Maggie Smith

The-Best-Exotic-Marigold-Hotel-maggie-smith-31488103-500-211

Ah – I love Maggie Smith. Such a talented actress. She appears in some of my favorite films – Sister Act 1&2, Hook and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. It’s impossible to pick which portrayal I love the most.

Mrs Doubtfire

Mrs-Doubtfire-Dancing-and-Vacuuming

This film!!! I loved it as a child, I love it even more now. The magic of Mr Robin Williams will never, ever fade. I read the book when I was young and I didn’t realize until I watched the film that Mrs Doubtfire was actually the dad – and everyone used to say what a bright child I was – yeah right!

Gigi

gigi

I have lost count of the amount of times I’ve watched He’s Just Not That Into You. I love that film and Ginnifer/Jennifer Goodwin is so adorable in it.

John Coffey

film The Green Mile

Oh – this film. *Sobs* If you haven’t ever seen this film, you really should. John Coffey is a sweet, harmless and magical man, imprisoned for a crime he did not commit. *Sobs again*

Fat Amy

fatamy

Fat Amy from Pitch Perfect. She is SO hilarious and had me crying with laughter at times. “Whoomp there it is.” I can’t WAIT for Pitch Perfect 2.

Ryan

letsbecops

This dude is CRAY CRAY!! Who – WHO in their right mind would not only pretend to be a cop, but then buy a cruiser, conduct surveillance and try to take down a hardened criminal. That guy up there would – with hilarious consequences. Let’s Be Cops is quite possibly one of the funniest movies I have EVER seen.

Lara Croft

lara

I’m not really a huge fan of the films, but I am a HUGE fan of Lara Croft. I want to BE her. I have played every game on the Playstation then Xbox. I made the move to Xbox just so I could play Xbox exclusive DLC. I am one of the worlds best online mulitplayer’s on the xbox one on Tomb Raider 2013. Lord knows how, because I spend a lot of the time suspended in rope traps. Luck, probably. I even put a tiny Xbox easter egg in each of my books. I love Lara.

Indiana Jones

ij

The first movie I ever saw in the cinema, also – my first crush. I LOVE Indiana Jones. Love, love, love. I want to be him too, but I’m missing an appendage, so maybe not. My husband always jokes that I crush on the geeky guys and it’s ALL Indiana Jones fault.

Roy Harper

rh

He rose from the slums of The Glades to serve up justice in the form of arrows and kickassery. I struggled whether to have Oliver Queen or Roy Harper as this last one, but went with Roy because of his journey. I wonder if I can recruit Roy and Felicity onto my Vigilante team?

So – that is my lot! All of these characters I love. This has been one of the most fun blog posts I’ve done in a while – thank you Dena!

  1. OMG! Indiana Jones! In my mind, I was his assistant. It was glorious.

  2. Good idea! I love that you have two characters from Arrow! I probably would too.

  3. I wrote a post about a month ago about My Top 5 movie characters I’d take to the Oscars as my plus one. It was so hard to narrow it down, Emma, as I love so many of them. I think I ended up doing a second list just because I felt I’d left out too many with a mere top 5…

    Indiana Jones better do a better job of landing airplanes, or he won’t be around much longer to take up a spot on your list. πŸ˜‰

    • haha! That was ALL over the news yesterday. Poor Harrison, at least he’s okay though, otherwise I might’ve cried!

      • Clearly, there is a stunt pilot flying the Millennium Falcon in the Star wars flicks! πŸ™‚

        • HAHA!! Too funny…..but clearly πŸ˜‰

          • Han Solo never would’ve made a landing like that one!

          • No- no he wouldn’t, BUT – he ran into trouble and he landed without doing himself any permanent damage – pretty good going, I suppose.

          • I suppose. I still think he was shot out of the sky by a TIE Fighter…

          • They’re coming for us all…. πŸ˜€

  4. So many good ones that I totally didn’t think about. I can’t believe I left out Robin Williams. I love Mrs. Doubtfire. And Indiana Jones and Laura Croft- love them! Fat Amy kills me πŸ™‚ Pitch Perfect 2 looks sooo funny. Great list!

    • It’s because there’s so many to choose from!! When I got to ten I couldn’t believe it – I felt like I’d only just started. Pitch Perfect 2 – Ricky’s promised to take me to the cinema again to see it, it’s out here in May and as he loves Pitch Perfect as well, maybe we could go for his birthday then have a nice dinner. I loved taking part in this blog hop – thank you!

  6. I love Robin Williams, and only just watched Mrs Doubtfire recently. I keep telling the kids about how unique he was: no comedian like him, imo. I also love ‘He’s just not that into you.’ Not sure how much I loved Gigi, but you know what, I saw so much of myself and my sister in her it was frightening! I really liked the actor she ended up with though. Maybe we don’t like being shown that mirror. I’ve often told her she should write about the stupid things she did to catch a male’s attention. . . Hmm Rebel Wilson ( aka Fat Amy, is it?) I don’t know why, but she seems to do better overseas than here in Australia. I do want to watch that movie though πŸ™‚

    • LOL – Yes, her name is Fat Amy in the film ‘so the skinny bitches don’t call her it behind her back’ < her words!! She's fantastic in it. It's a great movie – I hope when you get to watch it that you like it too πŸ™‚ Gigi – I loved her because I think she was everything that some women think, but don't do. She was a whack job and I really laughed at some of the things she said. I think, like you and your sister, there's a bit of all of us in her character. I think a book about women doing crazy stuff to catch a man's interest would be amazing – I know I'd read it!! There is certainly no comedian like Robin Williams – he was one of a kind and I absolutely loved him. I think, certainly for my age, he was a constant figure in my life when I watched movies – Mrs Doubtfire, Hook, Aladdin, Jumanji and then the more grown up ones as I got older, Dead Poet's Society, Good Will Hunting and Good Morning Vietnam. Such a talent.

Talk to me - I love to waffle back!
