My favorite movie characters of films I've seen so far with quotes by them. I'm pretty sure this list will always be in progress..

12.4. 2013
I made another list for the favorite supporting movie characters, because this list became quite long with all the characters. And going through this list wouldn't be such suffering, right?

Great choices. I loved Shoshanna in Inglourious Basterds, but my favourite from this list is Jack Nicholson. He was perfect in The Shining.
